Architecture at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's my turn to choose the challenge at Cardz for Guyz and I have chosen "Architecture". This gives plenty of scope and I had a hard time deciding what to use. Eventually I went with another unused Michael Powell stamp.
I stamped it on some smooth watercolourpaper using the Misti, which was a life saver as this stamp really did not want to give a clear image. Even after 3 stampings it was still not very clear, but I figured it would add to the watercolour effect! I used some watercoour paints and lots of water.  Then I found a tall narrow card, lurking at the bottom of my card blank box, a leftover from a QVC buy!

I'm looking forward to seeing your makes, and don't forget to have a look at my teamies' makes as well.

Rudolph Day and NBUS

Only two more Rudolph Days to go till the Big Day! I wasnt sure if I would be able to get into the craft room to make a card this month as the builders have just knocked through and it is chaotic to say the least! But I managed it and used a NBUS embossing folder so I can also join in with Darnell's NBUS challenge.

I think it will look familiar to some of you - it's a Christmas version of That Folder! A very CAS card which actually looks better IRL!

Autumn Colours

Hello there, it's time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and this time it was my turn to choose a theme. I have gone for Autumn Colours.

I have used yet another NBUS item, Totally Trees from Stampin' Up. I picked some nice autumnal shades of yellow and orange, plus a green and burgundy ink. I wrapped some green, red and gold twine around the panel then added a round sentiment ( this was not the original plan, it was to cover up a smudge of ink!) I think the sentiment is an old Woodware set.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team have made.

Nature at Cardz 4 Guyz.

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week the theme is Nature. I decided to play with Craft Artist and made this card using the Craftscapes digikits.

I printed off some extra embellishments and fussy cut them out before adding to the circular image. I really ought to play with CA more often than I do.

Hope you can join in with the challenge.

Something for a Child at MMM

The challenge this week at Make My Monday is "Something for a Child" which fitted quite nicely with making a card for Roy's great-nieces's 7th birthday. I decided to make her a girlie card and used the SU T-shirt set.
The banner is a Little Claire set that I've had for ages and never used. I really wanted to put Happy Birthday Polly but couldn't fit it in.

Look forward to seeing what you come up.

Something begining with D

The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Something beginning with D" I went for dog, purely because I wanted to use the Crazy Dogs stamps which had been waiting pateiently for me to give them their first outing!

I stamped him onto some taupe cardthen watercoloured him, he looks a bit streaky here but not IRL. White gel pen for his eyebrows - do dogs have eyebrows? Some glossy accents on his eyes and a wash of green to ground him. The sentiment is a Dylusions one, which I thought suited the look on his face! I look forward to seeing what you create. As always don't forget to check out the res of the DT's makes.

Rudolph Day- August

Well here we are again at Rudolph Day, only 3 more to go!! I decided to go through my box of bits and pieces,as opposed to snippets, and found some decoupage bits already made up. Time to turn them into cards.
It's a long time since I made a DL card, but it seemed to work quite well with the round decoupage and a gold embossed sentiment.

Then I made up a couple more,so that's three m0re for the box!

More octopi!

I've been playing with that little octopus stamp again! This time I stamped it randomly in different colours, mounted it onto some bright pink card and then onto a square card blank.

Job done!

Those lazy days of summer at Make My Monday

Lazy Days of Summer is the new challenge at Make My Monday. I found some 6x6 paper  which perfectly represented a hot summer's day ( I'm beginning to forget what they are!)

The little bikini die and sentiment stamp are from Simon Says Stamp. I added the birds to break up the background. I hope you can join us this week and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's makes.

Fancy Folds at Cards 4 Guyz.

I'm quite taken with the twisted pop up card and it fits well with this week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. I dug out some coordinating papers from a very old paper pad bought originally from QVC.

The stamps are from SU, I stamped them on the patterned paper then stuck them on white card as the paper is very thin. I think it might go to my grandson in due course. as always I hope you like and will be able to join in.
