Welcome to a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week it is Reindeer. When Stampin' Up brought out this Dasher stamp I just had to have it, but it has hardly been used. Time to ink it up again.

A  simple card, but it used up some fairly large snippets from my snippet mountain, not that you can tell!

Snow Fun!

Time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and this time it is Snow Fun. Lots of scope there! The perfect opportunity for me to use my new Snowy Family stamp. I do love these snowmen.

I watercoloured the hats and scarve, and cut it  out with an oval die, then mounted it on red mirri card. The sentiment is cut out od the same mirri card.

Do pop over to the challenge and check out my teamies makes!

Oh Christmas Tree !

Welcome to another challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, where we are looking for your masculine creations.
I have used a very old Christmas tree stamp that I bought about 10 years ago and never really got on with. I was very new to stamping then.  It's still not the best stamp to use!

I stamped it in green and clear embossed it. As I made it some time ago, before my house got too chaotic I can't remember which green I used, and can't get at the card to have a look!  The bow is coloured with gold Wink of Stella. The image is mounted on green holographic card, again very old, and the sentiment die cut from the same card. The backing paper is actually foiled vellum from SU last year,. The trees are ideal for adding the glue!

Hope to see you joining in with us.

Dot Painting MMM anything but a card 30 OCT

There's a new challenge at Make My Monday for "Anything but a Card" I decided to do a scrapbook layout as I'm still working on my Australia album, and it has been a bit neglected of late.

We did some dot painting while at Uluru with two aborigine ladies. This is a photo of all our creations. I thought the spotty papers were perfect for it. I hope you can join us this week and look forward to seeing your makes.

Rudolph Day - October

I didn't really think I would be able to make a card for this month's Rudolph Day as my craft room is currently a dumping ground for anything and everything. But I am definitely getting card making withdrawal symptoms - so went digital as I have got the laptop.

I know I'm not going to have enough cards made this year as the building work started later and is lasting longer than anticipated. I was reluctantly thinking I would have to buy some cards, but instead I think I will be able to print off some digital ones instead.Just need to make sure I've got enough printer ink!

Remembrance or Sympathy

The new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz is Remembrance or Sympathy. I decided to go with sympathy. I have wanted this stamp from SU for ages and only just got round to getting it. I think it is the perfect image for a sympathy card.
I stamped and embossed it in Elegant Eggplant and mounted it onto card of the same colour.

I Put a Spell on You at Make My Monday

This is the second Halloween card I made, as I said in my previous post, I really don't do Halloween, but make just two cards a year for my grandsons.
I used the SU cookie cutter set again. I actually think these images are rather fun! It's a pity the fluorescent glittery green eyes don't show up in the photo! Don't forget to check out all the other inspiration at Make My Monday.

Halloween at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week the theme at Cardz 4 Guyz is Boo (Halloween) or Autumn thank you card. Now I’m not big on Halloween but my two grandsons are. This is the first card I made using the SU Cookie  Cutter Halloween set. I coloured the little fella with Copics and used up some snippets of paper.

I’m so glad I got ahead with my DT cards as my craft room is a bit of a dumping ground at the moment, and the rest of the house is in total chaos!  I keep telling myself it will all be worth it when it’s finished. Meanwhile here is a taste of what I mean.


I’m also going to pop in to the Playground while I can, some light relief is needed!

Animal Antics at Make My Monday

It's time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and the theme for you this time is Animal Antics.
It fitted in very nicely with my step- great -niece's 4th birthday so this has winged it's way to her.

I had bought this stamp set and matching punch quite a while ago and never used it, and I'm on a bit of a mission to use my NBUS mountain!The hardest part of this card was hiding the green panel inside! I think the fox is rather cute, I must play with it some more and make some of the other animals that I've seen on Pinterest.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all create.

Architecture at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's my turn to choose the challenge at Cardz for Guyz and I have chosen "Architecture". This gives plenty of scope and I had a hard time deciding what to use. Eventually I went with another unused Michael Powell stamp.
I stamped it on some smooth watercolourpaper using the Misti, which was a life saver as this stamp really did not want to give a clear image. Even after 3 stampings it was still not very clear, but I figured it would add to the watercolour effect! I used some watercoour paints and lots of water.  Then I found a tall narrow card, lurking at the bottom of my card blank box, a leftover from a QVC buy!

I'm looking forward to seeing your makes, and don't forget to have a look at my teamies' makes as well.
