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.

Fusion card challenge citrus … or …. Christmas!

Hi crafty people!  I hope you are having a good week and staying safe in the stormy weather.

Today I’m sharing my entry for the current Fusion card challenge….Fusion Citrus-001

This time I decided to opt for just the sketch and I was itching to use the free gift that came with issue 8 of Love Cardmaking magazine that I bought this morning (I think I have an addiction to craft magazines!)

So here is my card….

20180920_174510

I used the cross stitch effect embossing folder, the stamps and the embroidery hoop dies from the set.  I just added a couple of patterned papers and voila!  I used to do lots of cross stitch and this set has made me think about picking it up again.  So many crafts so little time!

Male Room Challenge #93 – Photography & Cameras

Hi crafty people, how’s your Monday going?  My week has got off to a productive start and I’ve been making lots of lists and setting myself tasks in my diary.  I’ve also been making this card for the Male Room Challenge ( Male Room Challenge #93 ) which has the theme Photography and Cameras.

20180903_130208

I pulled out a Paper Smooches stamp set (We Totally Click) and die of a Polaroid camera.  I paper pieced the camera and added some Glossy Accents to the lens to make it look more realistic.  Then I used the mini camera stamp and heat embossed it in silver on black card stock to create the background.  I hope you like my card and if you haven’t entered the challenge already why not give it a try?  I’ve been playing for a few weeks now and I’ve loved the varied prompts.  It’s also been a great way to build up a stash of cards suitable for men.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog, hopefully I’ll see you again soon!

Fusion card challenge daisies

Happy friday crafty people!  I hope you all had a great week.  Mine has gone so fast I can’t quite believe it but I’m taking it as a sign of enjoying myself and nothing to do with getting older (eek please humour me!!)

Today I have an entry for the Fusion card challenge which has the theme of daisies.  I love this challenge as it gives you a sketch and a theme and you can use one or both.  Check out http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/08/fusion-daisies.html for all the information.

20180830_152509

And here is my finished card.  It was a pretty quick one to make but I’m quite pleased with the result.  I used flower dies from a Tattered Lace set and finished them off with dovecraft liquid pearls to cover the hole in the middle.  The embossed section is another Anna Griffin embossing folder from Cuttlebug and I thought the flowers linked with the theme.  The sentiment came from a Hunkydory set with a recent magazine.

I hope that you like the card and that you are winding down for a fun weekend.  Thanks again for stopping by to my wee corner of the internet.

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (352)

Hi crafty people, how are you all doing?  Today I would like to share a card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (FMS352).  The sketch is …..

FMS Final 352-001

I was inspired to make a macaron themed card as we picked some up at the weekend and we are enjoying the various flavours plus they are so pretty!  This was the first one out of the box and it was irn bru flavoured hence the blue and orange colours! If you haven’t heard of it, Irn Bru is the top selling fizzy drink in Scotland and it’s delicious.

So I pulled out a macaron die and I used a sentiment from the Altenew way too sweet stamps.  The background was embossed with the Regal Braid embossing folder from Anna Griffin for Cuttlebug.  I also used a macaron stamp to make a subtle background on the strip across the card (although I think it is so subtle it’s not really visible in the pictures!)

And here is my finished card…..

And here is my card……

20180827_162628

I used three sizes of flower stamps from Stamps by Chloe and I stamped them onto  Sheena Douglas Stamping card and heat embossed them in gold.  I used distress oxide inks to watercolour the flowers and then fussy cut them once dry.  The sentiment came from the Delightful day set from Clearly Besotted Stamps.

Fusion card challenge – galaxy challenge

Hi crafty people!  I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.  I’ve had a weekend full of cake, catching up with friends and a last outing to the Edinburgh Fringe for another year.  Today I’m sharing a card for the Fusion card challenge (http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/08/fusion-galaxy.html ) which has the theme of “galaxy”.

20180822_134854

I used the Starry sky stamp set from For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory and a star embossing folder.  The inky background was made by blending distress inks before heat embossing the stars in silver.
