New Challenge Begins Today @ Cardz 4 Guyz

Today begins a new challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz!! #C4G297

On the Water #C4G297

We hope you will join the fun and play along with our new challenge.  For this current challenge we want you to make a masculine card that showcases this theme...ON THE WATER.

For my card I used Stampin Up's dies and stamps from 3 sets...By the Dock, Best Catch and Waterfront.  All of these sets work great for creating a masculine card.  I made this one for my Dad for Father's Day.  I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge. 

My card was also inspired by another challenge...

Tic Tac Toe Challenges // #tttc163 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row on this game board are...Dad, ribbon, and square card.  I used a piece of burlap ribbon from a floral arrangement I received earlier this year, cut my card base to a 4 x 4 and used a DAD sentiment from Stampin Up's Best Catch set.

Card #2 inspired by 2 challlenges...

Less Is More // LIM465 ...A rainbow challenge!!  ROYGBIV Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.  It is raining as I post this card and the sun is trying to peek through...that means there is a rainbow somewhere out there!!

Addicted to CAS // #221 ...A code word challenge!!  The code word for this challenge is STRIPES.  The colors of the rainbow make beautiful stripes as a backdrop for my umbrella.

1 Card // 3 Challenges

Today's card was inspired by 3 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC474 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch is perfect for showcasing the multiple gorgeous papers in this Whale Done packet.

As You See It // #AYSI275 ...A recipe challenge!!  The ingredients in this challenge are: Dies (oval and scallop for sentiment), Embossing folder (my seahorse was run through the Big Shot using an embossing folder to give it texture), "B" (birthday), Subtle colors (I used lighter color inks to give my images a subtle look against the designer papers), and shining (rhinestone scattered all over my card for this element).

Just Add Ink // #JAI605 ...A inspiration challenge!!  This photo makes we think of all the awesome creatures and shells that are to be found!!

This card was chosen as a "top 3" for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge!!  Thanks for the shout out on this birthday card!!

Global Design Project #344 // Try Stampin on Tuesday #556 // TGIF Challenges #370

2 cards...

Card #1 inspired by one challenge...

Global Design Project // #GDP344 ...A CASE challenge!!  For this current challenge we were asked to CASE a card designed by Charlet Mallett.  For my CASE of her care I used the same color scheme and loosely followed her sketch.

Card #2 inspired by two challenges...

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #ttot556 ...A sketch challenge!!  The additional twist for this challenge is to use die cuts.  I used both!! I taped two of my stitched square dies together so that I could great these cute frames.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc370 ...A technique challenge!!  FRAMES!!  Made my own frames using 2 of Stampin Up's stitched square dies. 

Both of these cards work perfectly for the current Retro Rubber Challenge as well.  Their current challenge is an anything goes challenge...of course we had to use stamps that are over a year old.  The first card uses Stampin Up's Penned and Painted set from 2016.  The second card uses Stampin Up's Blue Ribbon set from 2014.

CAS Colours & Sketches #471

 Today's card was inspired by 1 challenge...

CAS Colours & Sketches // #471 ...A sketch challenge!!  I know the sketch said any shape but I was kinda sold on the clouds!!  I stamped my sun, cut out my clouds, and then layered my my designer paper on a white base with foam tape so that it was dimensional.

TGIF Challenges #369 // INKspirational #265 // Paper Craft Crew #472

Today's card was inspired by 2 challenges...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc369 ...An inspiration challenge!!  The inspiration for this challenge is the cover of the new Stampin Up catalog.  I didn't have the exact flowers or leaves used but I think I did pretty good CASEing the cover.

INKspirational Challenge // #265 ...A designer's choice challenge.  The choice for this challenge is to use some free or gifted.  I used a spiral tablet of watercolor paper that my daughter gave to me.

Paper Craft Crew Challene // #PCC472 ...A tic-tac-toe challenge!!  My winning three in a row on this game board...die cuts, bling, flowers.  

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Just Us Girls // #JUG633 ...A color challenge!! Tan, Coral, and Blue are the colors called for in this challenge.  Coral calls for coral and tan calls for sand...I just couldn't resist another beach themed card with this color combo.

Papercraft Challenges // #82 ...A add bling challenge!!  Coral sequins it is!!  Actually both of today's cards have a little bit of bling.

Add Bling

Sunday Stamps #283

 Today's card was inspired by 1 challenge...

Sunday Stamps Challenge // #SSC283 ...A color challenge!!  I love the mixed berry assortment of colors.  For my take on this challenge I used Stamp Up colors...Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobble, and Poppy Parade.  Used 2 step stamping for my berries and finished off my card with ribbon and twine as a simple embellishment.

Shopping Our Stash Begins a New Challenge Today

Today begins a new challenge...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS471 ...Make mine a tall one!!  Create a slimeline card using up some of your stash.  For my card I used some hemp that was leftover from a macrame project my daughter made while she was visiting.  She left a wad of it on my work table and said..."Mom, I'm sure you can find a great way to use this on a card."  I hope you will join the fun and play along with us.  I look forward to seeing what you find rummaging through your stash.
Make it a Tall One

Time Out Challenge // #214 ...A quote challenge!!  The quote is from Steve Martin, "A day without sunshine is, you know, night.  A perfect quote for a sympathy card...especially with the silhouette of trees and a sun peeking through.

Card #2
Paper Craft Crew // #PCC471 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love taking a sketch and making it my own.  Every sketch opens the door to a million possibilities...thanks for the inspiration.

Make the Cards // #55 ...A technique challenge!!  The technique that is being showcased for this current challenge...use 2 designer papers.

Card #3
Just Add Ink // #JAI604 ...A CASE challenge!!  For this challenge they want us to CASE one of our own cards.  I decided to CASE the card I made for the new challenge that begins today at Shopping Our Stash.  I used the same color scheme, added my sentiment on a banner, and used the same die, but created a standard size card instead of a slimline card.  See today's first card...that is the one I am CASEing.
