Perk Up! C4G challenge

Morning Everyone!  We just got back yesterday from a week of camping out at Big Knife Provincial Park which was great fun – except for the wasps!  My poor son got stung 3x!

That fits right into this week’s challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz – Get Well Soon!  I’m sure my son could use a Get Well Card!

Today’s card pairs an image from Kraftin Kimmie designs with some Stampin Up Designer Paper.  I have just a bit of this coffee paper left and I think I am going to make up a batch of cards to get it finished.  The stamp is called One Cup at A Time, and I use it a lot!  The sentiment I printed off of the internet and then added some hearts with my little heart punch.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to join us for this week’s challenge! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Hello Walt

Hello Monday Peeps!  Have you stopped by the UYS blog today? Our new challenge is up!  This week we are using triangles!

So I decided to go with a layout today because I really wanted to try a background die cut.  I came across this one from Bits and Pieces .   which I uploaded to my Cricut Explore Air and then cut out.   I thought it would be fun to do a Disney Layout and back the pieces with my Disney papers.  The actual diecut is called Shattered Glass but it has some fun triangle pieces to it.

I used DP from Simple Stories & Echo Park, as well as their embellishments.  The sentiments are die cuts from Stampin Up and the internet.

I hope you like the layout and feel free to stop by the blog and play along with this week’s challenge!

Buggy Hello

Hi all.

I am in a group on Splitcoast Stampers called the Baker’s Dozen.  We swap a card with a partner for 13 weeks… I think we are on round 17 (I joined in on round 13) 🙂  This is the first card that I sent to my partner.  I just got some distress oxide inks and wanted to play around with them a little bit.

The stamp is from Your Next Stamp and the sentiment and bling are from Stampin Up.  I really liked how it turned out and I hope my partner likes it too 🙂

Are you ready for another Cardz 4 Guyz challenge?  This week, it’s all about the R&R…our theme is RELAX!

I was a bit challenged for this one, as I didn’t really have much for guys relaxing…..until I remembered that I have a Cricut Explore Air!~  Blowing the dust off, I found some fun images to cut out…

I’m using this cute one from the Fun in the Sun cartridge…I did a bit of finagling as I added some chalk to sort of define his shorts and his sunglasses!  I paired it with the Lakeside DP from Pebbles (yikes 2012!) and the sentiment I found online at deesdesigns as a freebie (thanks Dee!).

A few little bling from Stampin Up and voila!  Enjoying the day!  I hope you like the card and please stop by the blog to see what the rest of the DT has come up with and to play along with us…can’t wait to see what you create this week!

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!

dav

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!

Hello

Hi there!  It’s a new week and a new challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog today.  I’m hosting this one, and our challenge is to upcycle/recycle an aspect of your project.

For me, I found a couple of paint chip samples on my desk and chose to use them with some die cuts to create a couple of cards.

For the first one, the I used them to cut out the HELLO sentiment as well as the feathers, both of which are from Stampin Up.  I added some embossing, twine and some Nuvo dots to finish it off.

dav

My second card, I made some shaker pockets and die cut some stars and balloons from what was left over after the first card.  The DP is just from my stash and the sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.

The Perfect Blend

Ya, it’s still cold and snowy here.  Sigh.  I’ve about had it with winter.  One of the down falls of living in Calgary, it’s winter for like 9 months out of the year it seems!

Today I have a fun card for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!  It’s been awhile since I’ve used my KK stamps so I thought it was time.

The theme is glitter!  There is also a sketch on the blog that I used as well.  You can find the deets on their challenge here.

The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie called One Cup at A time.  I think I bought this one about a year and a half ago, because I wanted to start doing all these coffee inspired cards and then I kinda just forgot about it! I’m glad I brought it out again, and it definitely has been getting a work out.   I paired it with the Stampin Up coffee papers (I’m trying to use these up now, so you’ll be seeing a lot of coffee cards in the next few days).  This was a pinterest inspired card, which I altered a bit to fit the sketch.  I used a square of glittered cardstock for the challenge in a coffee brown color (again, something else that I’ve not been utilizing enough).  I also added a few Nuevo dots for a bit of texture. I also used the Stampin Up Hardwood stamp to ink onto one of the banners ( I actually had to crack this one open as I’d not even used it since I bought it last year) as well as the stampin up banners framelits.  I hope you like it, and don’t forget to play along in their challenge!
