It’s going to be a busy month for me, as I have been asked to be Guest Designer on not one, but two different challenge blogs during May. The first is with Cardz 4 Guys Challenges. (You will have to be patient and wait to find out who the second is with!)
Cardz 4 Guys is all about helping you to create cards for the men and boys in your life, which a lot of people find challenging, however I really enjoy creating those masculine cards. So I hope you will pop on over to the blog, say hi, and get some inspiration!
This week’s challenge is to make a project using a Gardening theme.
My card uses the digital images Shed by Little Claire, and Big Guy’s Garden by Mo’s Digital Pencil, and I have combined the coloured images with some papers from my stash.
Thanks to the Design Team at Cardz 4 Guys for having me join them this month. Make sure you stay tuned to find out what else we have coming up for you.
This week’s challenge at Our Creative Corner is a Dressed in Denim Recipe Challenge from Paula. Here is what she says:
Paula here again….I’m an Arkansan. We wear jeans all the time… work, church, play, even weddings. You name it, we can make the denim work. So dress it up or dress it down but use 3 ribbons or twine, 3 buttons or brads, and some denim (either real or faux via printed paper or a technique) on a project.
Great challenge, Paula! 🙂
My card uses, as promised, a sneak peek at some goodies from the new catalogue (rubbing hands together). Along with some denim, I have used the gorgeous Comfort Cafe DSP, which has been cut using the Scallop Squares Duo die. The greeting uses the new Bitty Banners Framelits die, also available on the 1st Sept. Oh and those yummy buttons are also new, Naturals Designer Buttons which have a lovely wood look to them, and they are threaded with some Early Espresso Baker’s Twine.
The denim fabric in this project (which is from an old pair of jeans belonging to my son -shhhhh!) has been adhered to some card stock using the Multipurpose adhesive sheet, before running it through the Big Shot. This helps to keep the fabric in shape and also stops in from fraying so easily.
Make sure you check out what the rest of the Design Team have made for this challenge.
Hope you will join us with this week’s challenge.
