The new challenge over on the Cards in Envy blog is a color challenge. Show us your purple and green cards. I love color challenges. I dig through my magic paper stash and try to come up with some DP (CTMH Sonoma retired) that fits the challenge. I used a sketch from OWH (slightly modified). The stamps are from Graphic 45 Hampton Art "Time to Flourish" stamp set.
Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with. Then link your Purple and Green cards. Remember no lumpy bumpy cards. Your card must fit in a standard mailing envelope.
The challenge on the Words 2 Craft By blog is to craft with the "Happiness is a Warm Puppy" theme. October is adopt a shelter dog month. You can see my shelter rescue dog "Ghost" over on the right side of my blog. Ghost is a Weimeraner and came to us from the Mile High Weimeraner Rescue. He is seventh in a long line of rescue Weims we had as our best friends throughout the years. This challenge required that I break out my precious Graphic 45 "Raining Cats and Dogs" Designer Paper.
It is a new challenge over on the Cards in Envy blog. We want to see you create a card that has a frame. Square, rectangle, circle, oval etc., as long as it frames something. I decided to make a card with a window frame.
This will add to my stash of Christmas Cards. I am behind on making Christmas Cards so I'll have to get busy and make more!
Stop on over at the Cards in Envy blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with, then link up your card with a frame!
Today is the day for the Club Scrap Garden Shed Blog Hop and Linky Party. I get my Club Stamp kit right after the 20th of the month. I love some of the cute stamps in the Greetings and Art Nouveau sets. There are some cute puns on the Greetings stamp set. I had to make this card!
and the inside....
Hop on over to the Club Scrap blog and check out what the Design Team came up with for this adorable kit and then link up your Garden Shed projects.
Yes in a few more days it will be officially Autumn! Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog. This time we want to see your cards with a Fall or Autumn theme. Here's my card.
As I was digging through my paper stash I came across this newsprint DP (Stampin'Up Soho Subway retired) with this Autumn poem on it. I used the Stampin'Up Truly Grateful (retired) stamp set for the images and CTMH Always Grateful for the sentiment.
Come check out what the other design team members did on the Cards in Envy blog. Then add your card to the linky. Cards can be any shape or size as long as they are not too thick to fit in a standard mailing envelope. No lumpy, bumpy cards.
Our new challenge at Cards in Envy is to make a card "for kids." It could be birthday, hello, encouragement etc. as long as it is a "kids card." Here's a cute birthday card I made using one of the Deep Red Stamps Operation Write Home fundraiser stamp sets.
I love puns and this one is so cute! The stamp set is retired now but it still works perfect for kid's cards.
Come check out what the other design team members came up with - they are all sure to be adorable. Then link up your cards for a chance to win bragging rights on the Cards in Envy blog.
After recovering from a three week vacation in a travel trailer all the way to New Hampshire and back (to visit my husband's son), I finally have some time to play on a few challenges. The Words to Craft by blog had this challenge for August/September.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. ~~ Lao-Tzu
Here's my take on the challenge.
The sentiment is Impression Obsession but the rest of the cards is from the Club Scrap Navigation kit. I am also entering this in Darnell's NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenge #7 since I have had this sentiment for a long time but this is the first time it has seen ink.
The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is "Hip to be Square." Show us your square cards or cards with square shapes on them. Here's mine.
There's a store in Golden Colorado that takes used craft items and quilt fabric. One of the owners has had several classes on how to make these beautiful paper quilts in different designs. It takes a lot of patience to work with those tiny paper squares but I am pleased with the results. Hop on over to the Cards in Envy blog and see what the rest of the design team did. Then link up your square card or a card with squares on it. Remember we don't have a card size restriction but your card must be thin enough to fit in a standard mailing envelope.
