Freshly Made Sketches #93

Hey Everyone

Allisa is this weeks sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches.  She has created the following fabulous sketch:

I’m mixed it up this week and gave myself the challenge of creating something other than  a feminine florally card. The card I’ve gone with was designed around some designer series paper I found in my stash.  Back when I first became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I brought DSP and then didn’t want to use it in case I wasted it and didn’t have it anymore!  So this specialty DSP called Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP was one of those ones that I’ve barely cracked open.  I’m not as fussed now about holding on to DSP – my mission is to use up as much as possible! I’ve used the grader from I Dig You for the main image and just to add some extra interest I added the cog-type images from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Sense of Time.

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #244

Hey Everyone

We have the following colour combo to inspire you for this weeks challenge at Create with Connie & Mary:

When I saw these colours, I thought boy card.  I’m trying to mix up my cards so that I’m not always creating a frilly, flowery and female card.  A friend from work asked me last week for a boy card and I had none to offer.  This challenge seemed perfect for me to make a start on some. This card feels different for me as I can’t tizz it up with flowers or seam binding, but I guess they would seem silly for a little man.

Mojo Monday #252 & Dynamic Duos #14

Hey Everyone

It feels like ages since I’ve put a post on here.  I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t had much of a chance to create.  My first card tonight is for two challenges.  The first is for this great sketch at Mojo Monday:

And I’ve combined it with this weeks colour challenge over at Dynamic Duos.  I’ve gone with a boy card as I don’t have many in my stash at the moment. I think these colours are fabulous for a boy card.

Here’s my card:

I created some hills for my excavator (that’s what I’m calling this machine) to run over. I’ve used my new Edgelits Die to create them, sponged them with some Wild Wasabi ink to give them definition and then stamped the water droplets stamp from French Foliage.  Here’s a close up so you can see them:

Thanks for stopping by.
