Autumn Colours

Hello there, it's time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and this time it was my turn to choose a theme. I have gone for Autumn Colours.

I have used yet another NBUS item, Totally Trees from Stampin' Up. I picked some nice autumnal shades of yellow and orange, plus a green and burgundy ink. I wrapped some green, red and gold twine around the panel then added a round sentiment ( this was not the original plan, it was to cover up a smudge of ink!) I think the sentiment is an old Woodware set.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team have made.

Nature at Cardz 4 Guyz.

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week the theme is Nature. I decided to play with Craft Artist and made this card using the Craftscapes digikits.

I printed off some extra embellishments and fussy cut them out before adding to the circular image. I really ought to play with CA more often than I do.

Hope you can join in with the challenge.

Something for a Child at MMM

The challenge this week at Make My Monday is "Something for a Child" which fitted quite nicely with making a card for Roy's great-nieces's 7th birthday. I decided to make her a girlie card and used the SU T-shirt set.
The banner is a Little Claire set that I've had for ages and never used. I really wanted to put Happy Birthday Polly but couldn't fit it in.

Look forward to seeing what you come up.

Something begining with D

The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Something beginning with D" I went for dog, purely because I wanted to use the Crazy Dogs stamps which had been waiting pateiently for me to give them their first outing!

I stamped him onto some taupe cardthen watercoloured him, he looks a bit streaky here but not IRL. White gel pen for his eyebrows - do dogs have eyebrows? Some glossy accents on his eyes and a wash of green to ground him. The sentiment is a Dylusions one, which I thought suited the look on his face! I look forward to seeing what you create. As always don't forget to check out the res of the DT's makes.

Rudolph Day- August

Well here we are again at Rudolph Day, only 3 more to go!! I decided to go through my box of bits and pieces,as opposed to snippets, and found some decoupage bits already made up. Time to turn them into cards.
It's a long time since I made a DL card, but it seemed to work quite well with the round decoupage and a gold embossed sentiment.

Then I made up a couple more,so that's three m0re for the box!

More octopi!

I've been playing with that little octopus stamp again! This time I stamped it randomly in different colours, mounted it onto some bright pink card and then onto a square card blank.

Job done!

Crafty Cardmakers are looking for Under the Sea

Those lazy days of summer at Make My Monday

Lazy Days of Summer is the new challenge at Make My Monday. I found some 6x6 paper  which perfectly represented a hot summer's day ( I'm beginning to forget what they are!)

The little bikini die and sentiment stamp are from Simon Says Stamp. I added the birds to break up the background. I hope you can join us this week and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's makes.

Fancy Folds at Cards 4 Guyz.

I'm quite taken with the twisted pop up card and it fits well with this week's challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. I dug out some coordinating papers from a very old paper pad bought originally from QVC.

The stamps are from SU, I stamped them on the patterned paper then stuck them on white card as the paper is very thin. I think it might go to my grandson in due course. as always I hope you like and will be able to join in.

A Little Octopus!

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will know that I am involved with the Octopus For a Preemie UK charity, (see the sidebar and HERE ) so when I sat his cute Lawn Fawn stamp I couldn't resist!

I cut out a stitched rectangle square from SU then  stamped him in black and clear embossed him. I  masked him off and stamped the bubbles in Versamark and embossed them in white. I sponged some Distress Oxides ink over the top. I coloured the little octopus with a pink Copic. The white and blue mats are both snippets so I'm off to the Playground to see what mischief everyone is up to.

Grey and Pink

The new challenge at Make My Monday is to use grey and pink, a very pretty combination.
I used a SU stamp set which has been really popular, but has been sitting on my desk uninked!

It was such a quick card to make and I love the effect of the paint splash on her dress. I'm afraid I'm a day late posting this, I'm going to blame the building stress!
