Red, White and Blue Challenge Reminder

A reminder to join in with our Red, White and Blue challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  I have made a very different card from last week’s…….

I thought this image from Lacy Sunshine Stamps called Rory Sailing, was just too cute and had to use it for this challenge.  She is coloured with Copic markers and I have combined her with papers from Stampin’ Up!s Maritime DSP.
I do hope you will share some of you projects with us for this challenge, we love to see what you have been creating!
Happy stamping!

Feature a Sentiment

Continuing on with the current Crafty Boots challenge to use a Sentiment on your project, I have made some more cards featuring different sentiments.
My first card uses a cute image and sentiment from a long ago retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called “Hand Knit” which hasn’t been used (shocking!!) until now, along with some of the papers from the Adventure Bound Paper Stack.

Love that cute little sheep! In case you can’t read the writing, it says, “Knitting keeps us from Unravelling”, which I definitely have to agree with, along with colouring, cardmaking, crafting in general……….  🙂
And I have made two masculine cards, the first features a sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamp set combined with some papers from Maritime Designer Series Papers, and the ship is from the stamp set called Traveler.

And lastly, I have used some papers from my stash and stamped directly on to it using one of the sentiments from the Big On You stamp set.  I have then coloured in parts of the lettering so that it stood out a little more, using a Basic Black Marker.

The card is finished off with some “Faux stitching” around the edge of the paper, and some black candy dots in the corners.  A pretty simple card really.
I do hope you will join us this week and share your projects with us.   Check out more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team at Crafty Boots Challenges.
Happy stamping!

Maritime Birthday

Here is the card I made for a lovely young friend of ours who recently turned 9.  And of course, I wanted to use some of my new goodies, and show you another sneak peek.  Who can resist new Stampin’ Up! goodies….. I know I can’t 🙂



Isn’t the paper just gorgeous?  I adore this colour combination, it’s wonderful for masculine cards, so bright and cheery.  And the only stamping this one has, is for the sentiment, which is from the Label Love stamp set and matching punch.  The DSP is called Maritime.
Hope you are having a crafty weekend.  And for those of you in Australia, a crafty long weekend! 🙂
Happy stamping!
