Merry Monday Challenge #55

Hey Everyone

It’s Monday, so that means it’s another Merry Monday Challenge.  This week is Tic-Tac-Toe week.

I’ve gone with the three tiles across the top of the grid – Animal, Designer Series Paper and Ribbon.  It was only after I’d taken a photo to load it up to the blog did I think that it reminded me of another card I made a few weeks ago – same reindeer used, but different background.

The stamps sets I’ve used are retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Scenic Season and Winter Post.  The Designer Series Paper I’ve used is also retired called Beau Chateau. The snowy effect in the background was created by using my Spritzing Tool.  This was a quick and easy Christmas card – something that doesn’t happen for me all the time.

Here’s my card:

Merry Monday Challenge #51

Hey Everyone

Lesley has a fun challenge for you over at Merry Monday this week! It’s Tic, Tac, Toe week again! Our challenge is to choose any three tiles in a row and create a Christmas card.

I’ve gone with the three tiles across the top of the grid – Red, Dry Embossing and Ribbon. Before I ran my cardstock through the big shot I swiped my Cherry Cobbler Ink pad over the embossing folder to give the cardstock both texture and colour at the same time.  Because I didn’t cover the entire folder with ink, it gave the cardstock a bit of a vintagey background – I quite like this look and think it really ties in with my vintage postcard theme.

Here’s my card:

Dynamic Duos #30 & The Sweet Stop Sketch #186

Hey Everyone

The colour challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Midnight Muse & Silver.  I had an idea in my head to create a wintery Christmas scene and try a bit of sponging.  I’m not a huge technique user – mainly because I don’t find the time to play around and perfect them – so I decided to give it a try this morning.  I’m not sure if I translated exactly what was in my head to my card, but I’m happy with the result.

I’m combining this colour challenge with the sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop Sketch.  I really love a square card, so this sketch appealed to me.

Here’s my card:

Dynamic Duos #16

Hey Again Everyone

I’ve got another card for you tonight – it’s for this weeks challenge at Dynamic Duos.  The challenge for us is to create a project using River Rock and Basic Black.  Challenges with Basic Black would have to be my favourite – I just love any colour teamed with black.  The dessert option for this Black Tie Challenge is that we can use brads.  I’ve gone with a single brad mainly because I forgot to add more!

Here’s my card:

Did you notice the clock?  It’s from a stamp set called Clockworks and it will be available in the new catalogue available from 1st September – I can’t wait to get my hands on all the new products.  Roll on September 1…..

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Monday Challenge – Something Different Week 2

Hey Everyone

This is week 2 of Lesley’s month long Merry Monday Challenge for July.  While Lesley’s taking a well deserved blogging break we are holding the fort and creating one card a week from our favourite past Merry Monday sketch (click here to take you to the full list of sketches to choose from).  You can join in at anytime over the next three weeks – we’d love to see you play along.

I’ve chosen the sketch below to create my 4 different cards this month.  Click here to see my take on this sketch from last week.  This time I decided to change it up from a cleaner card and ended up going vintage with it:

Here’s my card:

Please check out what fabulous cards the Merry Makers have created and if you have time, we hope you can join in.

Thanks for taking a look.

Cheers
