A scrappy Card

Hey there, just wanted to show you a quick card that I made with some of the scraps from the layout for SCT.  I love using up scraps..I will try to make as many cards as I can with whatever papers I have left over!  Right down to the last scrap! LOL

This one was also fun, because I got to play with some of my embossing folders again…another tool that I’ve not used in awhile!

 

I hope you like it!

The Ordinary

Hey everyone!

I’m happy to be a guest designer this month on the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge!  Their challenges are always anything goes, as long as you do coloring of course!

My card for this week’s challenge features and image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  I think he’s just great for those masculine cards that we all need but never quite seem to have enough of right!

So I’m still in the process of working through some stash papers that I found, which is what I used for this card.  I colored him with my copics and used my CC designs stitched rectangle dies to cut and mat him.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz tiny words and I added a few sequin stars and enamel dots to finish him off.

I hope you like it and please come play along on the blog and see what the rest of the design team has created to inspire you this week!

 

Just Because

Wow, here we are and it’s almost the end of August! Raise your hand if you think this summer is flying by! Soon it will be time for fun fall projects! 🙂

In the meantime,  head on over to the Brown Sugar Challenges blog and check out this week’s challenge!  We are being sponsored by Melonheadz!

Melonheadz

I was pretty excited because I’ve never worked with Melonheadz images before and they are just so cool!

Our theme this week is to try something new! It could be a new stamp, scrappy item, technique….

For me, I decided to use a new die from Taylored Expressions that I’ve had for a bit but never used!  I also received this new DP from a swap that I did recently.

 

 

I think it is a fun little card and I hope you like it.

Also, we are having a Design Team Call!  You can check out all the deets here! 

 

 

Scrappy Fun

Happy weekend all!  It’s a long weekend here in Canada, but unfortunately, I have to work so no camping for me. BOO!  I have been hard at work clearing off my scrap space as I am preparing to make a schwack of cards for Ronald McDonald House in BC as part of a group in Splitcoaststampers.  Anyway..I’ve had this pile of scraps and bits and bobs on my desk FOREVER because I didn’t want to throw them out until I tried to use them up a bit.

I wanted to share with you a few of the card I made with the scraps & die cuts and some inspiration from Pinterest.

Hi!  Welcome to my part in the UYS summer blog hop…you should have arrived from   Christine’s blog.  If you haven’t you can go back to the start of the hop on the UYS blog so you don’t forget anyone….all the links are at the bottom of this post too, just in case you get lost!

I love summer!  Here in Calgary, in my house anyway, summer means camping and a lot of time outdoors.  We have a lot of winter here in Canada..sometimes up to 8 or 9 months of it, so when that warm weather hits, you know we are outside!

Summer always makes me think of fun, bright colors. Everything seems so much more vibrant and alive!  So for my project, I wanted to share with you some embellishments that I made in a class I took at Crop & Create with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine.   The class was hosted by one of my crafting idols Vicki Boutin!  We were using her new line of products from American Crafts and they are just so fun…there are stickers and water color stickers, die cuts, crayons and oh so much more!  These embellishments are made with fun, vibrant uses of color.  They give you the happy feeling inside and that’s what summer is all about!  Happy happy fun fun!! 🙂

We were learning to just have fun and create layers and textures to make some knock out embellishments.  Don’t throw away those scraps…instead, grab them along with some adhesive, some pop dots and whatever little bits and bobs you might have around and create some amazing embellishments while you binge watch your favorite shows!

I hope you enjoy these and I hope you will create some of your own to use on some great layouts or cards. Now you are off to Majo’s blog  to see what great summer fun she has for you but the list is below just in case you lose your way!

 

Bugaboo Birthday

Happy Wednesday Bloggers!  I hope you are all well.  I’ve had a sick household over this last week, which was kinda blech, as it was our long weekend and the official kickoff to camping season.

I haven’t done a lot of scrapping this weekend but I do have a cute card for you today!  It’s a new challenge week over at Penny’s and we have 2 fabulous sponsors for this week:

who is giving a luck winner 4 free images of choice

 and

who is offering a lucky winner a $12 gift certificate to their store!

Both companies have amazing digitals to use you can’t go wrong with either one!

This week I am using a digital stamp from Bugaboo!

This is a fabulous birthday cake stamp is handy to use for a quick birthday card and just some scraps from your basket.  This week I am pairing my anything goes theme at Penny’s with the Mojo Monday sketch.  Again, a really great sketch that you can use with scraps and just knock out a quick and fun card!

I just used some pieces from my scrap bucket (I even found some teal burlap in there to match my paper).  I colored the image just using my Sharpies this week and I added some stickles to every other layer, to bring in the sparkle from the chevron multi colored paper.  I also used my spellbinders to die cut.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out the blog for the other great projects from the DT and to play along with our anything goes challenge (it couldn’t be easier!).

 

Fall Fun

OK here is another card for World Card Making Day.  I am using a free digi image from Craftin Desert Divas.  I used up a lot of scraps in my ‘autumn/fall’ folder…again I don’t know where these come from.  I just pick these up and throw them into the bag..LOL
