Stamp, Ink, Paper #125 - Colour challenge Masculine Birthday

Image
Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week's colour challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper to use Dark Brown, Yellow, Rust/Orange.




This is what I've come up with for the challenge.  They aren't really colours I love but they did look manly to me so I decided to go masculine.   I've featured the Happy Birthday thinlits for my card and used some retired dsp & cardstock also with some dsp from the Coffee Break.




Here's a closer look.






Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  Can't wait to see your creation with these colours.  Have a great day.

Paper Craft Crew 267 - Tic Tac Toe Season's Greetings

Image
Hi Everyone,

Its Wednesday once again so its time for our challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.  This time we have a Tic Tac Toe board for you to play along with.  Choose any line you like, Vertical, Horizontal or Diagonal.  We can't wait to see what you make.





Here's my card using up some retired Winter Wonderland specialty dsp and retired embossing folder Pine Bough with a current stamp set which is a favourite at the moment called Snowflake Sentiments.  The cardstock is Crumb Cake.




 I've used the first vertical row from the Tic Tac Toe Board "Holiday Celebrations, Natural Elements and Favourite stamp set".  I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, being a very quick CAS card.  Here's a closeup.




Looking forward to seeing your creation in the gallery this week at the Paper Craft Crew.

Thanks so much for joining us and have a great day.

Stamp, Ink, Paper #124 - Ladies Day at the Races Easel Card

Image
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our themed challenge this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.



So I've changed mine slightly to Ladies Day at the Races, in honour of our Melbourne Cup race today here in Australia.  This is my card.




I've made an Easel card and used Beautiful You and Mixed Drinks stamp sets for the images.  I've also used the Layering Oval framelits.  The Cardstock I've used is Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.  The patterned paper is from the Birthday Bouquet (retired) designer paper pack.



This is the side view of the card to show how the Easel sits and the pic below is a closer look at the card front.  I've used our new Alcohol markers called Stampin' Blends to colour the images.




Here's a closer look



This is a closeup of the bottom panel greeting.  I've used the set Colour me Happy set for the greeting.



So glad you could join us today.  We do hope you will create a card and join us in the challenge this week too.  Have a great day.

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our challenge this week at Stamp Ink Paper.  Its sketch time and we look forward to seeing your take on this one.




For my card I didn't quite stick to the sketch.  I opted to make a long skinny card instead.  Here's my card for this week's challenge.




The cardstock I've used is Basic Black and Whisper White combined with Champagne Foil.  The patterned paper comes from the Merry Music pack.   Stamps are from the Snowflake Sentiments set.





I've used the Triple banner punch and the Everyday Label punch to complete this card.





Thanks so much for joining us this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  Can't wait to see your take on this weeks sketch.

Have a great day.

Hi everyone,

My daughter's University friends are all having birthdays and I made this one recently for Dylan.

I got out a retired set called Rev up the Fun for this easel card.




The cardstock is Very Vanilla and Night of Navy and I've used the Large Letter dies here for the 18 with a simple version of the Eclipse technique. 




Here's the greeting used to anchor the easel.




This is the side view to show how the Easel sits.





Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've enjoyed seeing my card.  Have a great day.
