I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches & liked the look of it so I decided to play along. I love their challenges but it has been some time since I’ve played along.
I had the Geared Up Garage Bundle siting on desk from Friday’s class & decided I would try & see what I could create using the sketch. I am happy with the result as I wanted the card to be suitable for male or female.
I have a couple of more cards to share with you throughout the week, so be sure to pop back.

Today’s card is the last of the Retiform Cards we created over a month in our Class a few weeks ago. It is using one of the sets retiring at the end of the month. I will miss Seaside Shore but of course SU! never seem to disappoint as there is always something to replace them by.

I have a simple, quick & easy card for you today. I am trying to use up as much DSP as possible before it retires. Along with the DSP, I am also going to try & play with stamp sets that haven’t seen ink for some time. This means that over the next couple of months you will see lots of cards using lots of retiring product.
This card took me all of about 10 minutes once I knew what I wanted to do & how I was going to create it. Don’t you just love this type of card. I don’t think it needs much as the gorgeous DSP from the Color Theory Pack says it all.
By changing the colour & sentiment, it would be perfect for the males.

To achieve my “footpath”, I added a 3 small amounts of Embossing Paste onto the Silicone Craft Sheet, added a very tiny drop of Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip Ink Refills to 2 of the amounts but not really mixing them.
I placed the “Brick” Decorative Mask to the bottom part of a piece of Whisper White Card, applied the White Embossing Paste followed by the Crumb Cake & then the Chocolate Chip to the Mask. I found doing it this way, I had a more of a distinctive look with the colours.
I’ve been playing with the lovely “Bike Ride” Bundlethe last couple of days & I must say I am loving it! So many possibilities with this lovely set.
I actually created my cards today, yes 2 for the July RAK – Random Act of Kindness that I am a part of. Love this group! You too can join. All you have to do is click on the link below & request to join. You don’t have to be a SU! Demonstrator.
To create my path, I randomly drew lines with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, coloured & blended with Crumb Cake Ink & Blender Pen.
The sun was stamped in Daffodil Delight, coloured & blended with the Bender Pen. I then blended a bit of the Daffodil Delight down towards the bike so that it looked like the sun was really shinning.

My card today is one we created last week in our class “Cards @ Toogoom“. The ladies loved it & thought it was a perfect way to use up those bits of DSP hanging around, not doing anything but sitting just in case…..
For me it was the perfect time to showcase the gorgeous “Crafting Forever” Stamp Set, Page 181 of the new Catalogue. It has a couple of lovely images great for the male, female & kids.
I’ve used the “Playful Palette” DSP Stack (retired) but the perfect excuse to use most of the remaining pages. You could easily change out the DSP, replace it with current DSP to achieve an entirely different look.
To highlight the DSP even further & for the colours to pop even more, I allowed a small amount of Basic Black to show between each piece.
I didn’t colour the image as I thought the DSP was busy enough & didn’t want to take away from the DSP. I did, however, “Paper Pieced” the vase with the same DSP.

My card today is one we created in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday. Please feel free to come along each Friday morning at 9.30am at the Community Hall.
I’ve been trying to create & showcase some of the lovely product that will be retiring at the end of May & today is no different. I’ve used the cute little Stamp Set – “You’re Sublime”. I love this set & always get a bit of a kick when using it.
To colour my sub I’ve used So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pool Party & Peekaboo Peach Inks along with my Blender Pen. The little hearts have been coloured using the Real Red Watercolour Pencils.
As Mint Macaron is a 2015-2017 In Colour, it will be retiring this year. I will really miss this colour as it is one of “go to” colours.

Today’s post is a little late. I can’t seem to get my act together even though my card was created way ahead of time.
I’ve used the “Carried Away” DSP along with the “Any Occasion” Stamp Set, both from Sale-a-Bration. I did get my inspiration from a card on Page 15 of the Catalogue but then used our sketch we have for our team to play with. I teamed the Stamp Set & DSP with the matching “Up & Away” Framelits from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

Today’s card is one we are creating in our “Cards @ Toogoom” class this morning. I hope the ladies like it!
I started by caseing the card from the 2017 SAB Catalogue but it sort of went off on its own. I then found a card on Pinterest that I loved so I ended finishing my card by caseing it. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
I’m loving my Blender Pen at the moment as the new smooth & improved Watercolour Pencils make it so very easy to use. I also want the class to play with them as they are very interested in different techniques, so look out class, we will be doing lots of lovely techniques in our future classes.

My card I am sharing with you today was created for a challenge but as usual, completely forgot to post it. Well, to be honest, I couldn’t find what challenge I did it for. Does that ever happen to you?
I’ve used the lovely “By the Shore” DSP & the co-ordinating “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set. I teamed it up with Dapper Denim & Very Vanilla Card. Inks were Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim & Calypso Coral. My Blender Pen was used to colour parts of the “coral”.
