CAS(E) This Sketch #216

Gotta love the stripes for the CAS(E) This Sketch #216 sketch: I needed another birthday card for a no-frills kinda guy and I thought this sketch worked really well for that. I stenciled the stripes on some green paper with MementoLuxe Nautical Blue ink. I built up the sentiment with a couple of die cuts,…

Fusion – scrambled letters

I am always excited to participate in the Fusion card challenge. This one is no exception: Here is my card: I used the elements of the letters, the colours and the touch of wood. The horizontal stripes became vertical because that was the only striped embossing folder I had 🙂 I love the way the…

CASology #238 – crunch

First off, thanks to Hazel for the honourable mention for CASology #237. I am very grateful! “CRUNCH” is the on the cue card for CASology #238: Here is the card I was inspired to make: I was thinking along the lines of a time crunch, perhaps a graduation or completion of a big project at…

Freshly Made Sketches #275

Here is this week’s sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches: I have been feeling a girly hangover after Valentine’s Day. In keeping with my streak of making some more masculine cards, I came up with this: I love this paper. I got it years ago, and I forget where but I wish I had picked…

C.T.S. #208

Hey there! I finally had some time to make a card. This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch #208: I had a lot of fun thinking about this one, and here is the card I came up with: I used Art-C stamps for the Happy Birthday sentiment (24667 R6). I used Hero Arts Origami Animals…

SIP 84 – a Tic Tac Toe challenge

It was my favourite type of challenge for Stamp Ink Paper 84! I chose blue, circular element and ribbon: Clever, huh!? 😉 I coloured the ribbon with spray ink as I noticed I need to get some proper blue paper 🙂 Then I used a HOORAY die cut to strengthen the celebratory theme of the…

C.Y.C.I. 125 – red, grey, white, black

It’s my favourite colour combination for the challenge at Can You Case It this week! I got some new dies and was happy to use a We R Memory Keepers Cut Outs for the chevrons on this card. I like all the sharp angles and the way the colours go so well together. I added…

CASology 202 – masculine

It’s a timely masculine challenge over at CASology this week: Here is my interpretation: I put down a couple of spritzes of spray ink , then stamped, heat embossed and die cut the images and sentiment (Tim Holtz). And voila, I am one card closer to nailing down CAS standards! 😀 Thanks for stopping by!…

CTD 392 – Enjoy The Journey

The Color Throwdown challenge this week was a nice one: I have to say I really enjoy getting out of my comfort zone and creating with colours I might not otherwise have used 🙂 This is my card: It’s just a simple travel-themed card in pretty neutral colours that could work for a birthday, someone leaving…

APWP 66 – masculine, nautical theme

Hi there! This is the first Always Playing With Paper challenge I have ever done and I just couldn’t resist. Who doesn’t love a nautical theme? Again, I had a problem finding anything navy so I think this weekend I am going to have to resolve that 😉 Here’s the super simple card I did:…

CYCI#113 – Thanks A Bunch

This week’s Can You Case It challenge is a colour challenge: Navy, kraft and grey is a great combo. I was worried I didn’t have anything navy! I used Avery Elle’s All Squared Up stamp set that I recently got and I love them! It took me a while to figure out how I wanted…
