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

Birthday Party Animal…

Hello

I’m back with another Birthday card 🙂

This one I am linking up to the following challenges

NBUS #6 here

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes here

Happy Little Stampers here

Here is my card

wplus 9 party animal 2 (480x640)

I have managed to use 4 NBUS products here! I stamped my NBUS Wplus 9 party animals onto xpress blending card stock and coloured with my NBUS copic markers (I bought a new pack of copic earth tones at the local craft shop sale this week) once coloured they were die cut with NBUS coordinating die.  The background circles are cut from circle die and NBUS SSS Stitched circles die in SU Old olive and some ancient pattern paper.  Once these were in place on my card front I added my animals with foam tape and the sentiment from PTI World’s greatest stamped in Memento Luxe ink.

Thanks for stopping by

Have a great weekend – a long one for some

Playing with 3 x 3 …

Hello

Today marks the first day everyone is back at school/work/uni for the year.  I know it is March.

So what did I do?  I played  helped out  in the art room for Ms A.  We went outside for about an hour and sketched what we could see then returned to the art room to add tones and colours.  Some of these kids can draw and clearly it isn’t for some of the others. I picked up a tip or two from the art teacher – you know there is a reason I like stamps, dies and punches! I really can’t draw.

Anyway I am back home now and thought I would share a few things I put together over the weekend.

I am linking up to the following challenges

NBUS #6 – Never before used schtuff here – today mine are SU No Bones about it, IBS Small Fancy Labels 1 (sentiment) and SU Flowering Fields

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Seize the birthday here – most of the 3 x 3 cards I created are good for a birthday

Our Badge

All cards are 3 x 3.  I plan to make them into little sets.

3 x 3 cards male (640x479)

In this group I have used NBUS SU No Bones about it, sentiment from Jane’s Doodles Doodle Flowers II, PTI World’s Greatest plus SU word window & modern label punches.

3 x 3 cards (640x359)

In this group I have used PTI birthday tags and Tremendous treats stamp sets.  I coloured the hot air balloon with alcohol markers and the balloons with intense pencils. I have also used circle punches.

3 x 3 cards girlie (640x632)

In the final grouping I have used Mama Elephant Waterblooms and IBS NBUS Small Fancy labels 1 sentiment. The other stamps used are from PTI Tremendous treats, NBUS SU Flowering Fields and the “a little something for a little someone” is also SU but I don’t know where from! I again used circle punches, SU Itty bitty accents punch, ME Sew fancy dies and SU Tags & Labels framelits.  The cake is coloured with alcohol markers and has a wink of stella on the candles. Whilst the Flowers were stamped by colouring the stamp with a marker and then adding colour from the ink pad with a water brush.

I also used some pattern paper by adding a layered sentiment.  I must make up some normal size cards to use some of the pattern paper I have been holding on to.

Thanks for stopping

Stars and Trains …

Hello

I have a few things to share today.

Ms 10 helped me last week sort through my stash and we found a few gaps. Mainly due to the fact I make as I need. So I have been making a couple of things over the last few days to fill those gaps.

And doing so I am linking up to a few challenges as well

This first card I made in two colour ways using a range of stars from Annabelle Stamps Boy’s Party, Uniko Balloon Bash, Inspired by Stamping Build a Stocking, Papertrey Ink Star Prints and sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

I stamped my image from Stamp It and mounted onto chocolate coloured card stock. The pattern paper is from a Kaisercraft pad along with the tag I stamped the sentiment on. The sentiment is from PTI World’s Greatest.

I also have a little update on my jumper.

The pattern I am using can be found here  and here.

I am knitting in Bendigo Woollen Mills Athena yarn I purchased last year. It is lovely and soft.

A friend recently celebrated their 50th Birthday.

I used PTI World’s Greatest stamped using SU ink to create the background. I used the same to make the small feature as well as SU cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment on to a dienamics oval tab.

I am linking this upto – create your own background.

I think I might just make it.

Thanks for taking a peek.

Cheers

Edges with Tangerine Tango. Cardstock from Scrapbook Boutique Brights – Key Lime and Carrot. Twine Orange and Green baker’s twine from We R Memory Keepers.

MFTWSC82 Challenge

I thought I would enter this card I made for my husband’s nephew’s 18th Birthday in the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge.

I repeatedly stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from PTI World’s Greatest using PTI classic kraft, SU Certainly Celery, Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Real Red inks. The star paper was included in a magazine. I die cut the Quickutz tab from a scrap of blue. The red card strip is topped with PTI twine. The Star was also die cut from a scrap using X Cut Star dies and the “18” was stamped with versafine onyx black using See D’s stamps.

Cheers
