New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz

Today begins a new challenge at...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G321 ...A masculine challenge!!  With a "get messy" theme!!  Use ink, sprays, paints, etc!!  You know all those things that stain your finger tips!!  I decided to use Pearl Ex!!  I stamped my vintage car in Versa Mark and then using a paint brush, brushed the Sapphire Blue powder over it.  These powders are really messy!!  I had it all over my finger tips and work space.  I think that is why I rarely use them.  They do have an amazing affect...that pearly shimmer is awesome in real life even if you can't really see it in a photo.  

#C4G321 // Get Messy

Now it is your turn!!  Come join the fun and play along with us!!  What will you use to get those fingers messy??  I can't wait to see your creations.  Hop on over to our blog and check out the inspiration given by the rest of the design team.  

Another challenge also inspired today's card...

Less Is More // #LIM482 ...An alphabet challenge!!  A is for AUTOMOBILE!!  This vintage card from Tim Holtz seemed like the perfect stamp for this challenge!!  And it looks so very cool in this Pearl Ex!!  The photo just does not do it justice, as you can't see the pearly shimmer that it gives.

Card #2 inspired by 4 challenges...

Just Us Girls // #JUG677 ...A CASE challenge!!  For this challenge we are asked to CASE (copy and share everything) one of the cards created by the design team members.  I picked Elizabeth Stewart's card.  I love the stamped background and the jumbo sentiment along with the smaller sentiment.

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI568 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  For this challenge we are creating Mother's Day cards.  I loved the tiny flowers on this cupcake photo and decided to use small flowers on my card.  I picked the Stampin Up's Ring of Nature set for my florals.

Just Add Ink // #JAI650 ...A "Just Add" challenge!!  For this challenge we are "just adding" large letters or numbers.  I decided to use the letters to spell out MOM!!  With Mother's Day right around the corner it seemed fitting.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc418 ...A "Special Lady" challenge!!  A card made for your mom or some other special lady in your life.  I decided to make a card for my mom!!
