Some More Challenges

I am trying to involve myself more in challenges - 1, it challenges me, and 2, I get to use other companies stuff that is collecting dust in my stamp room! ;)

So, for today, I am joining in at CAS Mix Up October Challenge; layering stencils.

For my card, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil that I have (had like forever!)  I covered this stencil, with a stencil that Loll gave me over a year ago [probably 2, as fast as time goes], to do the layering stencil technique. I then used stitched rectangles dies for my framework.  I like the way that this card stays CAS, but has a little pop with the framing.  Still qualifies for the challenge too!
I went on to create a very easy card for a new to me challenge; If You Give a Crafter a Cookie #79; photo inspiration, along with the October Craft Stamper Magazine Take It, Make It; anything goes.

Let's start with the fun cookie photo;

And, my card:
I was inspired by the colors, and the spider.  I stamped the background dots with PTI Polka Dots Basic 2, and, the web and spider are stickers I had.  A fun card, that was so easy to make :).

That's it for my Monday -- thanks challenges - it was fun!

Just Us Girls #415 - Trend Week

So,  I kind of cheated with my card.  That said,  I'm saying it is a "fake" window card. ;)

 I used acrylic for my "window" - does that work?  I hope so, cuz I'm going with it!  My ivy, and scalloped frame is from Ali Express, and the mc is Poppy Stamps.

To be honest?  I am lovin this "window" card! :)

Come on over and join in the JUGS Challenge with your window card~

Inkspirational Challenge - One Layer Card

I love making one layer cards. The challenge over at Inkspirational Challenge #145 screamed at me to join in!

I tried to make this card look 3D even though it is a one layer.  Do you think I succeeded?  I rather like it... but I can't tell.  I used Inspired By Stamping's Poinsettia stamp set.

Great challenge Inks!  Thanks :)

Playing in Global Design Project; CASEing Brian King

When I saw the challenge over at Global Design Project; CASEing Brian King, I figured I'd join in since I needed a sympathy card for our son in law. [His father passed away] I am also adding this to My Time To Craft #356; sympathy.

Here is Brian's card;

and here is my CASE;

I used the layout, I just moved the sentiment towards the bottom.  It's a perfect layout for a masculine sympathy --- just what I needed. Thanks Brian and challenge - I needed that! :)

Hi all!  The Team is hopping today using the awesome new TYPOGRAFIA motivate stamps that STAMPlorations has created.  As you can see from the above graphic, there are a lot of them, and today, you will see many examples of how the team used them.

Dare 2B Artzy Day

I'm over on the Dare 2B Artzy blog with this fun card;

I like recognizing the loss of a pet for my friends.  To me, my pets are a huge part of my family, and I think of them all like that.

Isn't he just the cutest!  He is really fun to color too.  In my case, I used Copics.

I used Puppy Talk and Pet Sympathy to make my card.

That's it for my day.  Hope you got in some crafty too~

Merry Monday Challenge #259

I was thrilled when I saw the Merry Monday Challenge; Christmas Tree.  I just got some tree dies from [my friend] Ali Express and really wanted to use them!

Aren't these fun!  My mc is from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings.  I used a white pen to add some snow on my trees.

Thanks challenge - another fun time!
