White and Blue

It's time for the new challenge at Cardz for Galz and we would like to see your white and blue cards.

I have been itching to try out this new turnaround stamp that I bought from SSS in their Stamptember promotion, but Christmas cards got in the way! I used four shades of blue to stamp the pattern, then added the simple hello in black. I'm really quite pleased with the way it turned out. Make sure to stop by the challenge blog to see some other blue and white creations.

One Layer at Perfectly CAS

It's time for the first challenge of 2020 here at Perfectly Cas, and it's the dreaded one layer card! Although I don't think people find it as frightening as they used to.

I have used a set of stamps that seem to lend themselves to the one layer card made by Little Claire Designs.

I think these little dachshunds are so cute! I masked off the card leaving just a strip wide enough for the dogs and brushed some pale green ink over it. The dogs were coloured with Stamping Up markers. Lots of inspiration from my fellow team members on the challenge blog, do pop over and have a look.

A Man Tree!

Welcome back to a new challenge at Cardz for Guyz, and this time we would like to see your Clean and Simple cards for the males  in your life. I'm not sure that mine is as cas as I would have liked really!

I used a stamp from the now defunct Little Claire. I coloured it with some Sakura gelly roll pens that were lurking in the back of a drawer! There's more inspiration over on the challenge blog and i'm looking forward to seeing your makes in the gallery.

Anything but Square

Our first challenge of the year at Make My Monday is to make a card that is anything but square.

Now this card might look like a rectangle but the front is in fact a hexagon. I made it using a new set of dies from Paula Pascual called elongated hexagon. You get the basic card shape plus all the corner pieces ,smaller hexagons and trellis work insert.  The rhinestones, flower and leaves are very old stash. Don't forget to see what other shapes the DT have come up with.

Trim the Tree!

Well Christmas is only just over and here we are making Christmas cards again! It's time for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge.

This year I'm on a mission to use up some of my old stash and for this challenge I found some old Kanban decoupage toppers, bought when I first started cardmaking and neglected for a long time.

I used a scrap of SU designer paper to back it and added some gold adhesive ribbon. I added glitter to elements on the card, but I'm afraid the photo is not very good, it was a very grey day!

Please do join in the fun and make a start on those cards - it's never too early!

Pins and Needles!

Welcome to our new challenge at Cardz for Galz, the first in 2020. The theme is "Haberdashery". It has given me the opportunity to use some dies thatI got as part of a bundle and thought I would never use.

I found a couple of sheets of coordinating background paper, I thought the top one looked a bit like stitches! I diecut the pincushion, scissors and cotton reeland wound some glitter cord round it. The buttons were out of my stash. I think I'll save this for a friend's birthday later in the year as she is a keen quilter.

Do check out the rest of the DTs makes.

Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge

Happy New Year 
 And here we are (almost! ) in 2020 and the first of the Happy Little Stampers challenges.

 I have gone with the optional twist as I usually try to, but it is entirely up to you whether to use it or not.

I found the background in my drawer of bits. I made it by spraying it randomly with Distress Spray them smooshing Distress Oxide inks over it. I then found another piece of card where I had been playing with Brushos and diecut the flower using a Spellbinders die. A simple sentiment finished it off.

I do hope you'll check out the challenge blog and join in with us.


Thelast challenge of the year at Cardz for Guyz is "Blue" I had lots of pieces of blue paper, and still have, in my snippets box, so made two cards using some of them.

Sadly it didn't make much of a dent in the pile but it did make two fairly quick and easy cards. I'm looking forward to seeing your blue creations.

Female Birthday

Welcome to the final challenge of 2019 at Make My Monday.

 Hopefully by now you have all finished your Christmas cards so today we are having a birthday challenge. We would like to see your makes for a female birthday. I was running very short of time in the lead up to Christmas so I fished out some Hunkydory stuff that I think came in a magazine, and made a very quick and easy card.

There's nothing more I can say about it so I'll finish by withing you all a

Very Merry Christmas

It's time to celebrate

Our new challenge at Perfectly CAS is "Celebrate"

As you know the challenge is to keep it cas by only using one third of your card.

I have gone for the bottom third this month.

I printed the word celebrate on the computer then stamped the coloured drinks over it. A small stamp at the top of the glasses finished it off. Don't forget to check out all the other DT cards.
