Daring Cardmakers Challenge – July Elemental

Hi crafty people, how are you all doing today? I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend? It’s Friday so it must be time for a new Daring Cardmakers Challenge. As we are in a new month we have an elements prompt where you are challenged to use at least 3 elements from this image.

I decided to use the playing cards, dice and the yellow colour. I used a Dovecraft die set to cut the playing cards. The Happy Birthday stamp is from an MFT set and the poker chips were a printout that I fussy cut. I made the dice myself with some black card and flat back pearls for the dots!

I hope that you will hop on over to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge to see all the fab projects made by the talented design team. We’d love to see your entry!

I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:

The male room challenge – geometric

Hi crafty people.  I hope you are having a fab weekend.  Today I’m sharing a card for the Male Room Challenge which has a geometric theme currently. Here is my finished card…..

I decided to create a back ground with a stencil and my favourite pixie powders in midnight blue and teal wash.  The I used a Dovecraft stamp from the Lost and Found set because it had a triangle shape which I thought fitted well with the theme and the arrow background.  Then I cut three triangles and decided to make them into mountains so I gave them snowy peaks and arranged them on the card.

I hope that you like my card and thanks for stopping by to see this blog post.

Fly me to the moon!

Hi everyone, can’t believe it’s been 10 days since I last posted, I’m sure time is speeding up at the moment…. maybe I’m just getting old!  Anyway I’m back with another card for a challenge.  This time it’s the Male Room Challenge blog.( https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2018/06/challenge-87-little-boys-dt-call.html )

The theme for challenge 87 is “little boys” and I went with a space theme using die cuts and a pixie powder night sky for this easel card.

I bought my first pixie powders earlier this year and I’ve loved playing with them and seeing the different effects.  This was the first time I tried them on dark card and I was really pleased with the night sky I created.

Pixie powders in Midnight blue, silver dream and aubergine dream.

I scattered some of the three colours onto navy card stock and then sprayed with water, and used a paint brush to add water to any larger clumps of powder to make sure they had all reacted.

After I’ve sprayed water over the pixie powders on the dark paper, the real sheen comes once it’s dried.

I then added a dovecraft die cut rocket and some tiny silver stars and stamped a happy birthday sentiment.

To keep the card sitting up I raised the circle panel on the card base with some sticky pads and added an age for the birthday boy.
