Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #238 Here Comes Summer



Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #238 Here Comes Summer.  Chanya is hosting today's challenge and you only have to make a summer-themed project such as a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or some home decor, the choice is yours.  Have fun!
I used a Stampin' Up stamp set titled 'Beautiful You, Stampin' Up Pacific Point and Whisper White cardstock and two Stampin' Up punches. The flower and leaves are from a die-cut. The white background was embossed.

I picked this stamp set because what better way to reflect summer than a  scene of a girl in blue water and a lovely blue sky!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #237 Dies or Punches


             Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #237 Dies or Punches

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and Jo is hosting today's challenge.

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'Dies or Punches'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the Dies or Punches theme.

I decided to do a wedding/anniversary type card in white, creamy  colours. This was not a good choice as it was practically impossible (for me) to take a presentable photo  (the frustration level was high lol!) and this was as good as it got. I do like the card though.

I used two flower border dies, two leaf dies and for the sentiment a small rectangular die.  The large flower was from a package bought at a local craft store.

Have a great day!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card. Angela is hosting today's challenge and anything you care to enter is fine as long as it meets the no card theme.




As you can see I chose to make a calendar-notepad holder. I wanted to make one back in January but could not find the calendar anywhere. I happened to be in a Dollar Tree the other day and right before me was one lone 2019 mini calendar, so of course, I bought it. I had to remove some months from the calendar but that's OK. (it now reads June lol!) Just a fun thing to make and I quite like it.

Card Details:
 I used Stampin' Up card stock, some designer paper, a mini calendar and a sticky note pad. The larger embellishment flowers were made from a jar of flower petals I found hidden in my stash. I punched some petals to which I added rhinestone centers and adhered them to the larger flower petals.  I added three more of the small punched petals for added interest and adhered them to die cut leaves I had glued to the background.

                        Do come, join the fun and share your creations with us!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #235 Masculine

    
     Marg is hosting today's challenge

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the masculine theme.

Do come, join the fun and share your masculine creations with us!  I chose to make a card featuring die-cut dragonflies, Stampin Up cardstock, some designer paper,  two tags, and some punched embellishments. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Wow, it is June already! I had my plants out by the Victoria Day May long week-end, the grass is cut, the garden is starting to bloom and my dog and I quite happy about it all  (it was a long winter).  Now if only the forest wild fires would go away, the smoke can be ghastly.

I made my card using the Fun Fold technique called 'Twist and Pop'.

(an online instruction video for the fold can be found here).

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #232 Dragons


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #232 Dragons.  

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Lin is hosting today's challenge # 232
and the theme is 'Dragons and other Mystical Creatures'. It is St. George's day tomorrow, he died on  April 23rd in the year 303 so how appropriate to have the challenge in the same time frame.  If dragons are not your thing any mystical creature is welcomed. As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme.

I chose a Whimsy digital stamp (Freddie) and tried to keep the layout somewhat CAS. I added a corner flower and made the lone flower dimensional. Prismacolor markers were used in the colouring of the image. I also added a punched zig-zaggy layer to the bottom of the card.
