Going Round in Circles!

Welcome to the new challenge at Make My Monday. This time we want you to use circles on your card.
I used some old SU cardstock Natural White to make a one layer card, but I messed up the stamping so had to put the sentiment on a strip of card to cover the boo boo! The stamp set is Mix Mash from Happy Little Stampers, sadly no longer available.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DTs fabulous makes.

March Hares!

It's my turn to set the challenge at Cardz for Galz and as its March I chose March Hares (or rabbits if you havent got any hares!) I had it firmly fixed in my mind what I was going to do, but then I saw a stamp of a hare by Pink Ink Designs which I thought was perfect so bought it, not realising how big it was!!

This is a 7" square card! I coloured it in with Zig Brush markers and a water brush. I'll add a sentiment later when I decide who is going to get it.

I'm also sharing this with Daring Cardmakers who's challenge is Mad March hares.

Use Your Dies

Welcome to the new challenge over at Cardz for Guyz. This time we want you to use your dies. It gave me the perfect reason to use a new die that I bought at the recent Make It Show.

I used an old SU football stamp which I  stamped in black and clear embossed, in the centre of a white panel. I masked off the circle and sponged blue ink through a stencil. I added the die around the football and mounted onto a card blank made from the same blue card. Of course it had to be blue and white as both grandsons and two sons support Chelsea!

Make sure to pop over and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I am also linking this into the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge

Welcome to the March Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.


 I really had no inspiration this month but as I was putting away the Simon Says Stamp kit for January I realised it had tags in it, so my card was borne.

I stamped the snowflakes in white pigment ink and evetually had to clear emboss them as they wouldn't dry. The paper is also out of the kit and although it is difficult to see in the photo it has white snowflakes/stars on it.The penguin and sentiment are from the stamp set Snow Much which is included in the kit as well.

I hope you'll join in the fun.

Something New for Spring

The challenge this week at Make My Monday is "Something New" I have used a brand new set of stamps from Concord and 9th . I really, really like these turnabout stamps. This one is called Eveyday Bouquet.

I have gone with some spring colours and mounted ir onto a lovely bright yellow. Make sure to visit my teamies to see what they have made, and hope tou will join in too.

Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge

Welcome to the March Watercolour Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. As always it is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Mist.


I used a stamp that was part of a freebie set with a recent magazine. I stamped the branch in Sepia and watercoloured with Distess Inks. I did the same with the sparrow but it looked dreadful, the markings didn't show and the brown was very orangey. So I stamped another bird in black, which looked much better, and fussy cut it out to perch on the branch. The mists were a couple of sprays, the green was Shimmerz and the pink was a Tattered Angels one.

Looking forward to seeing all your creations.

Oh! Pretty Baby

I seem to have got stuck in a rut of making basic shape cards. So I was determined to do something different for the new challenhe at Cardz for Galz, which is Oh Pretty Baby.

I used the presscut dieto cut the card blank and the layers, it makes it so much easier! The small images are from a retired SU set which has gor matchine dies but I fussy cut them as I made the card up at a card club meeting. The letters are some very old Quickutz dies. Ppaer and card are also SU from my stash. Although the challenge is for a girl, I think the card is actually fairly gender free!

Do check out the rest of the DT's makes.

Deck the Halls for Rudolph Day

It's Rudolph Day again at Scrappymo's. I actually made this card a while ago ready for January Rudolph Day but there was no challenge as Maureen was expecting to be having surgery.

I used a gorgeous turnabout  stamp set from Concorde and 9th. They really are clever stamps. A red foil mat and a peel off coloured with a red Sharpie finshed it off.

Paper Planes!

It's Tuesday again and time for a new challenge at Cardz for Guyz.. This time we are looking for Clean and Simple  masculine cards .

I had a rummage through some stamps and pulled out this Paper Planes one by Ryn Designs. I think I've only used it once before. I stamped three different ones on my panel, coloured them with Copics, drew a couple of wavy lines round the edge and added a sentiment.  Don't forget there's lots more inspiration from the other DT members. Do go and pay them a visit!

Make it Kraft!

Welcome to a new week! The new challenge at Make My Monday is  to use Kraft card. I know Valentine's Day is past but it wasn't when I made the card! I'm thinking I will use it as an anniversary card.

I stamped this sweet Penny Black stamp in Versafine Onyx Black and coloured it with Spectrum Noir pencils. There's lots more inspiration over on the challenge blog and look forward to seeing what you make.
