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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
I hope you like my card and I’d love it if you left me a comment!
