I am starting a new type of challenge over at the ScorPalPals Yahoo group. I think it will be really fun to see what people will do to make a card using the same image. I just hope others will give it a try.
I find it hard to make male cards and it was no different with this card. I had come across this stamp last weekend and picked it up for making male cards. So, what a better card to start with than one for my hubby.
Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & Basic Grey (Oliver); Nesties: Small Octogons; Stamp: SU (Four Square & Happy Moments), Little Paper Shop (Truck); Punch: MS (Cheers); Embossing Powder: Seafoam White
My local scrapbook store, Scrapbooker's Paradise, hosted a wonderful member's night. The ladies over there made it so much. We made the cutest little project book. There were so many new techniques and projects that we used.
WOW!!! This month is flying by...the Christmas All Year Long over at Magnolia-licious really snuck up on me. I even thought about not doing it this month as I wasn't certain my card was going to work out for me. I really struggled to get started, but I'm so glad I kept at it...I'm pretty pleased with the end results.
I really like to thank Julie who organizes us every month, what a big job she has. I'd also like to say a big thank you to Deb, she is the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group owner and Diana Crick, I wouldn't have any of my stamps without her shop.
But you didn't come here for my ramblings, you came here to hop. So, if you've arrived from Peggie's you are on the right track. If not, head on back to the start.
Here's my card for this month.
I don't know if you can see very well, but the tree is made from a piece of chipboard covered in tinsel glitter. Oh so messy, but I think it's so fun. I also framed the sentiment with the tinsel glitter.
I always seem to want to make something fun and special for the recipients of my cards. But I am always wanting to try something new too. So, here is what I came up with for this card. I found the tutorial here. But there are many different names for making this flower.
Supplies: Paper: KI Memories & Bazzill; Stamps: SU (Messages for Mom), Cornish Hen Farms (Birthday Centers); Ribbon: Sweet & Sazzy; Punch: MS (Traditional Eyelet Corner) & SU (Modern Label & Scallop Edge); Button: Chatter Box; Tools: Bow-Easy & Scor-Pal
On Friday last week I took my Scrapbooker's Paradise challenge card into the store to drop off only to find out that I hadn't picked up the correct image. I had thought that the paper the lady had given me was the one to color. When I had been making the card I struggled with why they had chosen to use regular photocopy paper. Well, that is because it was just meant to be a flyer and I was suppose to go back into the store to pick up a proper image. So, I brought home a new image to color. I was going to just replace the old Teacher image, but it was too big for my card. Instead I started over and made this new card. I dropped it off at the store this afternoon. Wow...there are some awesome cards made with this challenge image.
Here's the remake card
Supplies: Paper: Bazzill & DCWV (Stack 5); Ribbon: Offray; Stickles: Lime Green & Crystal; Cricut: Plantin' Schoolbook; Stamps: Studio G & MSE (Birthday Circles); Embossing Folder: SU (Textured Impressions)
My local scrapbook store is Scrapbooker's Paradise and they are having a card challenge. You have to color an image and make a card. I thought it would be a fun little challenge. I am very nervous to turn it in though, I know there are some amazing cards that will be done. The card has to be taken into the store by September 15, so I'm cutting it alittle close. Regardless, I'm pretty pleased with the end result of this card.
This month for the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge we were asked to make a card and a suitcase or backpack. I choose to go with the suitcase. This challenge came a great time too, I needed to make a gift card holder and the suitcase works perfect for that.
Here is what I came up with
The tutorial for the suitcase can be found here by Suzanne Dean.
