Celebrate — A Card and a new DT spot

Hey there!

I am so very excited to share that I have been asked to join the  Cardz 4 Guyz Design Team.  This is a great challenge site if you really want to work on those masculine cards that you never seem to have enough of!  Or maybe that’s just me…….. 🙂

Our challenge this week is Fashion….this is a fun one, and not a challenge that I have ever done on a card before!  Luckily, I have the Stampin Up Guy Greetings which I don’t use enough but has some great hats and shoes!

This is the card I created for you today!

Along with the stamp set, I used the DP from the Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes 6×6 pack.  I really love the colors in this.  I stamped the shoes and hats onto some DP in the Island Indigo and then I stamped and cut out one of each in a black, just to set it off a bit.  I had some washi in a co-ordinating color that I think added a bit of pop to that one panel and then the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I added just a few bling dots from Stampin Up.

I hope you like it, and please play along with us on the blog..we can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy Retirement

I have used the Paper Shelter Businessman image for this week’s challenge at the Color Crazy Craft Challenge Blog.  I decided to make a simple Happy Retirement card, and so I just did some basic copic coloring.  My DP is the Petticoats and Pinestripes 6×6 paper pack from Echo Park that I’ve had for awhile and not really used very much! It was nice to give it a run.  I used a couple of die cuts – the CC Designs oval to cut out the image and mat and then I used the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders to give an edge to one of the papers.  I knew I wanted to keep this card simple so the stitched edge just adds a bit of dimension.  The sentiment is Milestone Moments by Stampin’ Up.

Our challenge as always is anything goes, so I hope you will stop by and join us!
