For the next couple of weeks at The Male Room we want your masculine style projects to include SPOTS AND STRIPES. Don’t forget you can make any type of papercraft project – but it must be for the men in our lives – both young and old.
I have used some polka dot papers for my background and then layered some strips of cardstock in various colours on an angle over the patterned papers. Such a great way to use up some of those strips that we all seem to collect.
The car stamp and the sentiment were freebies from a magazine I bought recently. Both the car and the “Happy” have been fussy cut and mounted on dimensional tape.
I hope you will join in with our challenge at The Male Room.
This week at Crafty Boots Challenges we are doing Christmas in July. I have to admit that it has certainly been cold enough here in this part of Australia this winter and we have had falls of snow a number of times. We don’t normally have a white Christmas in Australia, so it is nice to be reminded of what a traditional Christmas feels like.
My card for today’s challenge features this gorgeous Kitten in a Stocking image from Aurora Wings. The image has been coloured with Copic Markers, then fussy cut and mounted over some silver cardstock.
I hope you will share your Christmas cards with us at Crafty Boots Challenges – it’s never too early to get started on those Christmas cards!!
This is such a beautiful image, that I wanted it to be the feature of my card, so I have kept the card very simple. The image had been coloured with Copic Markers.
Make sure you join us and share your creations with us at Crafty Girlz challenges this month.
Just a quick post today to remind you to join us at Crafty Boots Challenges for our Stars or Stripes Challenge.
I have used both stars and stripes for my card today.
My card features another great masculine digital image from Tiddly Inks, Golf, which comes as a bonus with the Father’s Day Vintage Truck image.
I have made this card for someone special who has gone above and beyond to help us find our new house (more about that soon!!).
Christmas in July, that is…. and it is most definitely cold enough here to be a white Christmas in July, in fact the snow has been forecast for the next day or two. So what better to do, than stay warm with the fire going, and colour!
I have created a card for the current Just Add Ink challenge, using a gorgeous image I found on Pinterest.
The image is actually a colouring page, which I have reduced to card size. Have you got in to all the adult colouring pages and books? I have just started and am having so much fun with them, I find colouring very relaxing.
The image was printed on to some white blending cardstock, then coloured with Copic Markers. I have simply mounted it straight on to some of the new heavier weight Stampin’ Up! Whisper White cardstock.
I have gone with some Stripes on my cards for this week’s Crafty Boots Challenge, but you could choose either Stripes, Stars or even both!
This first card uses some retired Stampin’ Up! patterned papers, and features the cute little Ellie digital image from Tiddly Inks, which I have coloured with Copic markers.
My second card also uses a Tiddly Inks digi, called My Dads Truck. I have left the image un-coloured this time and mounted it on some wide striped papers from the new Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.
The theme for July at Dragonfly Dreams is Midsummer Delight, and our sponsor is Lawn Fawn.
It is, of course, mid Winter here in Australia, so I quite enjoyed thinking about Summer and all the things I love about the warmer months, in particular, spending time at the beach in the sunshine.
So my card for this challenge is focused on the beach and sunshine. 🙂
I have used some papers from the new Stampin’ Up! Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack for my card, with the lovely bright and summery colours. I have combined some stamp sets for this card, the sun is from the Kinda Eclectic set, the star fish and little crab are from the Sea Street set, and the sentiment from the Work of Art set.
Theme – Make a Splash: Water MUST be part of your Image!
For this month’s challenge with Pattie’s Creations I have chosen Pattie’s wonderful Mallards image.
I just loved colouring this image, and of course have used my Copic Markers.
I decided to keep the card very clean and simple so that the image was the highlight of the card, and also decided to leave it blank without a sentiment, although it could be used for just about any type of card.
I hope you will join in the fun this month, create something with a water theme, or just that has some water somewhere, and share it with us at Pattie’s Creations in July.
This is my last month as a member of the Design Team with Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenges, so firstly I would like to thank all of the lovely ladies for sharing this time with me. I have enjoyed seeing all of your gorgeous projects over the last six months.
Our sponsors for this month are Ikes Art:
My card this month features the beautiful Wren image from Ikes Art.
I have coloured the Wren with Copic markers and then simply mounted onto some retired Stampin’ Up! paper from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack.
I hope you will share you projects with us again this month, at Creative Ladybirds Creations.
