New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz & A Spooky CAS Card

 Today begins a new challenge at...

Card #1...
Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G305 ...A masculine challenge with some distressing!!  Today begins this new challenge and you have 2 weeks to play along.  
I used a sponge to distress the edges of my masculine (since I created this especially for a sweet uncle & used a masculine color scheme...that makes it masculine, right!??!) Christmas card.  What will you do to show distressing?? Torn edges, crackle embossing powder, sanded Core'dinations card stock, or distress ink...the possibilities are endless.  We look forward to seeing your creations!!  So hop on over to the Cardz 4 Guyz blog, gain some inspiration from the rest of the design team and then play along!! 
Distressing  #C4G305

2 additional challenges inspired this card...

Fusion // #9.15.22 ...A fusion challenge!!  Use the inspiration photo, or the sketch, or FUSE them together and use both.  For my card I used both...from the inspiration photo I pulled the bricks and the evergreen foliage as my inspiration.

INKspirational Challenge // #274 ...A photo challenge!! My inspiration from the photo was the twine dividing the two patterned papers.  I also included writing on the left hand side of my card...to match the writing of the left side of the package in the photo.  Plus Christmas is a season of gift giving, so there is that connection as well.

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC125 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is SPOOKY!!  I love this owl from Stampin Up's retired Have A Hoot set.  Perfect for a spooky little card.

Just Us Girls // #JUG650 ...A color challenge!!  Green, Orange, and Brown are the colors called for in this challenge.  I used Stampin Up's Garden Green, Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie.

Just Add Ink // #JAI621 ...A sketch challenge!!  I kept the hexagon shapes called for even if the shape didn't matter.  I kept them small so that it would be a CAS card.  Clean and simple seemed perfect for this "boo to you" card.

  1. Great cards! I love your distressed look on the first one! Glad you shared it at Fusion!

  2. I love the fun and spooky way you have used our challenge sketch Deb. Love the little owl peeping out of the corner of one of the hexagons. Thanks for joining in with us this week at Just Add Ink.

  3. Two fabulous cards! I love your entry to our challenge with the spooky images and spiderweb. Your composition is perfect! Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

  4. I love how you combined our colors with the sketch challenge, Deb. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  5. This design works perfectly - all the elements such as the tartan banner and the twine, give a great Christmassy look. Thanks for joining in at Inkspirational.

  6. I love making masculine cards, but I feel it's quite tricky to make them vintage, but you succeeded well with this design. Your inpiration from the photo shows well even though you didn't go down the road of using lace or white on kraft. Thanks for sharing with us at INKspirational.
