That’s right, the latest challenge at The Male Room is to create a project that moves!
For my project, I decided to make this cute Four Fold Card. The middle part where the octopus is, spins around.
I found the tutorial for how to make these cards here:
For my card, I have used the Sea Street stamp set, and Crazy About You stamp set for the sentiment, and used some of the Sale-a-Bration papers called Perfectly Artistic. I thought they worked “perfectly” as swirly water.
Here a more photos of the card from different angles……
I hope you join in with the fun, heaps of ideas from the Design Team at The Male Room.
It’s time for our new challenge at The Male Room. For the next couple of weeks we have a theme challenge – your masculine style project must be based on a SONG TITLE. Be as creative as you like, but please tell us what about the song title inspired your project. You can make a card, ATC, scrapbook layout, 3D project, but it must be made for those every special folk in our lives – our men, young and old.
Yes, you guessed it! My card is based on the Beatle’s song “Octopus’s Garden”.
I have been singing in my head for the last few weeks…. “I’d like to be, under the sea, in an Octopus’s garden in the shade!”
Anyway….. my card uses some of the fabulous new Corrugated Paper, great for those masculine cards. The background has been sponged and stamped using the By The Tide stamp set, which is also where the Sea Horse stamp comes from, and the cheeky little octopus is from the Sea Street stamp set.
I hope you will play along with us, I can’t wait to see your Song Title ideas.
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.
Another “Under Water” card today, for the challenge at The Male Room.
I like this challenge, this one had me thinking of all sorts of things to try out! For my card today, I have used a Digital image from Make It Crafty, of a message in a bottle.
The image has been coloured using Copic markers, and then to make it look more like it was underwater, I have layered over the top, an Acetate Photo Filter Frame from the Project Life “Let’s Get Away” Accessory Pack. The photo filter adds that blue, green, yellow colour over the colouring and gives it a little more depth and interest.
Behind the main image, I have stamped some tiny fish and starfish (which are a little difficult to see in the photo), using the Stampin’ Up! Sea Street stamp set.
