This fortnight at Crafty Boots Challenges, we are going Pink! So think girly, although of course we would love to see something masculine in pink if you want 🙂
My card for this challenge is definitely girly though….
I had some new goodies arrive today, and I had to have a play. I have used some of the gorgeous Timeless Elegance Designer Series Papers. The papers are black and cream, but I have coloured over it with a pink marker so that it looks like black on pink. I have combined with the Butterfly Basicsstamp set and matching butterfly dies, and the sentiment comes from the retired Blooming With Kindness stamp set.
It’s not a great photo as we had a very dull and overcast day today – lots of rain and thunderstorms though, which is always good for the garden. However, despite the shadowy image, I hope you can see all the different pinks.
Come and join in with us at Crafty Boots, and show us your pink projects!
Don’t forget to play along with our current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, here is the sketch we are using for our projects:
I have made a masculine card which is a little removed from the original sketch in that I have used a large rectangle instead of the half circle at the top, but I hope you can see how I have used the sketch to design my card.
The patterned papers were all from my stash, and I have stamped directly onto the papers using the fish from By The Tide stamp set, and the words come from Boys Will Be Boys stamp set. Have a look at more awesome projects using this sketch at the Crafty Boots blog.
Even though I am still unpacking my craft, I managed to put together a really quick card today for this fortnight’s sketch challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.
Here is the sketch we are using for our projects:
And here is my quick and easy card 🙂
The card was made using a retired Stampin’ Up! cardmaking kit, which made it really simple to make. Check out what the rest of the Design Team have made using this sketch.
Hopefully I will have more of my craft stash out of boxes soon, and will have more to share with you. In the meantime,
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!!
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!!).
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.
Our challenge at Crafty Boots for the next fortnight, is to make Black and White projects.
My card features the gorgeous Butterflies Thinlits dies from Stampin’ Up!
Such a beautiful butterfly, it is one of my favourite dies, and makes it so easy to make a lovely card quickly and easily.
Make sure you share your Black and White projects with us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
My card uses the Traveler stamp set from Stampin’ Up!, and I have inked up the steam train in Chocolate Chip ink. The papers are (unfortunately) retired ones, but I loved the colours and thought it worked well with this particular image.
Hope you have a crafty week. Happy stamping!
