Mehndi…

Hello

Popping in to share another card

This one I am linking up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here

I was lucky enough to win the Mehndi stamp set from Uniko.  It arrived the other day and I had to play! Coloured with SU markers.  Sentiment is from Jane’s Doodles Birthday wishes.

Until next time

August Mood Board…

Hello

Today I am sharing my card for the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here

I’ve used Mama Elephant Just Hatched coloured with alcohol markers and popped up with foam onto my pattern paper.

Before I go I’ll share some cards someone asked me to make for them for

Kept these pretty simple. Sentiments from PTI and wood pieces are Kaisercraft (I think). Kraft and black cardstock.

Until next time

Cheers

Unstampabelles Collage Challenge…

 

Hello

Today I am sharing my creation for the Unstampabelles current challenge here

Collage, collage, collage… 


TWIST venture into multi- media

(multimedia means using two or more mediums together: so paint and texture paste or glue and paper or seed beads and paste/glue or ribbon, flowers and paint……)

Random Number Prize

Collage (from the Frenchcoller, “to glue”;[ is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippingsribbonspaint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.

The term collage was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

There are lots of examples on Pinterest if you want to waste a few hours!
Use the ‘collage in cards’ search for some simple examples

This one was out of my comfort zone. My creation is more on the side of multi media.  I think it still fits the collage brief.

I started by adding some colour to my texture paste.  This was added to a white mount and then a black mount and finally to my card front.  When the texture paste was dry I used the same spritz to add a few splashes of colour. I then added my die cuts, positioning until I was happy with the result.  The “DAD” is die cut from cork from the local craft store the tools are die cut in a bronze shiny paper from my stash along with a contrasting black cardstock.

I hope to see you in the challenge.

Cheers

Rainbows and Unicorns…

Hello

Today I am sharing a card using Jane’s Doodles Unicorn and Birthday Wishes stamp sets.

I am linking up to the current challenge at Seize the Birthday here no toppings for me this time

For my regular readers this will not surprise it was a specific request by Mr M for a friend.  Mr M and his friends have regular games days/nights where they play board games for about 12-14 hours.  And before you ask they do play board games because we regularly have the event out our place.  Any way one of the girls is having a birthday and this is the resulting card. The boys all chipped in and bought an add on pack for one of her board games – cause they get to use it too! Not so silly.  It did remind me of the kind of gifts partners buy each other like a kitchen appliance or garden equipment! Everyone gets something out of those types of gifts.

Enough of my waffle. I created the cloud base using embossing paste and a cloud stencil. I stamped and coloured my images with alcohol markers and popped them up on my card front.  I used my alcohol markers to colour a small section of cardstock and punched out the little hearts, adding them to the card front and adding a wink of stella.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

SBB July Moodboard…

Hello

I think I may be cutting this a little fine.

Today I have a card to share for the Scrapbookboutique July Mood Board Challenge here

For me the inspiration was the colour and the girl in the bottom right.

I used a Julie Nutting image and coloured with alcohol markers. She has a decent amount of wink of stella on her shoes, hair piece and belt.  I just couldn’t get a pic of those this morning. I layered the image with various punches.

Thanks for stopping bye

Everyday is Special

Hello

Popping into share the current challenge at Unstampabelles here

#70: Every Day is Special
TWIST lots of colour

Unstampabelles Challenges

My card was inspired by this card by Therese at Lostinpaper.  I don’t think I am alone in holding onto little slivers of pattern paper!  This was a great way to use some of them up and I got to use lots of colour at the same time and every birthday is special.

I used some double sided adhesive sheets to attach my stripes of paper then cut down slightly for my card front. I finished with glittery sentiment die cut using Stamplorations and PTI dies.

Hope to see your creation in the link.  Remember no stamps.

Cheers

For the men…

Hello

We have a holiday today for the Queen’s Birthday.  Hope you are having a great time enjoying your day off.

Today I am sharing a card for a Dad.

#69: To the men in our lives….. TWIST add an animal
The Prize will be …..
a mystery collection of new crafting bits 
As it is a mystery – there is no photograph of it!
There might be teasers during the month…..

Unstampabelles Challenges

You can find the challenge here

I used my SU Large Letters to die cut “DAD” in my pattern paper. I added foam to the back and placed them back in the spaces.  The trick was not to mix up the “D’s”.

The twist is to add an animal so I opened up some kaisercraft wood pieces that have been sitting unloved on my desk for far to long!

Hope to see you in the challenge

Thanks for stopping by

Cheers
