New Challenge @ Cardz 4 Guyz


Today begins a new challenge at...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #C4G346 ...A masculine challenge with a theme.  The theme for today's challenge "Welcome to the Jungle"!!  I pulled out a retired stamp set from Stampin Up for this challenge...Animal Outings.  Looks like Jolanda and I were thinking alike!!  How funny that out of all the jungle sets we picked the same one and then out of the 4 animals in that set, we picked the same one.  Great minds think alike!! LOL

#C4G346 // Welcome to the Jungle

Now it is your turn!!  Hop on over to our blog for all the details about our new challenge.  While there you can gather some inspiration from the rest of the design team...they have some great masculine jungle themed cards.

2 other challenges inspired today's card...

Sketch~N~Scrap Challenge // #SNS264 ...A sketch challenge!!  Every card needs a starting point and a sketch challenge always gives you a starting foundation.

Just Add Ink // #JAI699 ...A color challenge!!  The three colors called for in this challenge are Starry Sky, Berry Burst, and Coastal Cabana.  A jungle color combination for my rhino and his birdie bestie!!

Card #2 was inspired by 3 challenges...

My Mistake...


4 challenges inspired today's card...

Sunday Stamps // #SSC463 ...A sketch challenge!!  My mistake from yesterday...left town without creating a card for the challenge that began yesterday!!  Kinda hard to create a card without supplies while camping with grands!!  But here is my make up card now that I am home.  Hop on over to the Sunday Stamps blog and play along with us.  We would love to see your take on our new "Front & Center" sketch challenge!!

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS436 ...A color challenge!!  Petal Pink, Garden Green, and Pretty Peacock are the colors called for in this challenge.

Just Us Girls // #JUG724 ...A stencil challenge!!  This anything goes stencil challenge is super fun for me because I love using stencils.  I have not gotten into the new layered up one but they are on my wish list.  For now I'm enjoying the ones I have and mostly using them as backgrounds.

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC166 ...A theme challenge!!  "Somthing New" is the theme for this current challenge.  I am using my new french press die that I just ordered from Stampin Up.  It took me a minute to figure out how this one layered up but I think I got it right.

New Challenge @ Sunday Stamps #SSC334

Today begins a new challenge at Sunday Stamps but I totally dropped the ball and didn't make one before we left for a camping trip with my daughter and her family in KY.  I made and photographed card to post each day that I was gone but totally missed that Sunday should have been a card for the beginning of a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!!  GRRRR!!  A big apology to my design team members for dropping the ball.  When I return home today I will try and create a card for this sketch.  Even though I don't have a card for this new challenge that begins today, I want to tell you all about it!!  It is a sketch challenge and offers lots of open space for stamping and creating.  We hope you will join the fun and play along with our "Front and Center" sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps!!

Today's card was inspired by 4 challenges...

The Color Hues Challenge // #TCH85 ...A color challenge!!  The duo of colors called for in this current challenge is pink & yellow!!  A perfectly springy color combo!!

Try A Sketch On Tuesday // #TSOT645 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for playing with a new spiral tablet of shaped designer papers.  I torn out this pink "note book" paper oval and stamped it up.

Alphabet Challenge // 19APR24 ...An alphabet challenge!!  B is for bird!!  I used Stampin Up's bird builder punch (retired) for my litttle birdie.

Colorful Options // APR2024 ...A color challenge!!  Pastels were called for in the color challenge for April.  I am thinking that yellow and pink are just perfectly pastel!!

100% Spoiled

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge // #535 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for playing with a tablet of papers and stickers that I found during my craft clean out.  I made this 100% spoiled puppy card with a friend in mind who just recently got a new puppy!!

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS61 ...A "never been used" challenge!!  A true find during my craft clean out...left over brand new tablet of paper and stickers that have a puppy theme.  We no longer have a dog and I am longer scrapbooking so this tablet will get used for cards for friends with dogs.
