This could be a very short post as I am having big issues with my mouse & pc.
It was Gwen‘s turn to set our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations & once again she has been easy on us.
All we have to do is create a card for a Male! It could be a scrapbook page, 3-d project or anything else you can think of. Some of us have trouble creating male cards, so hopefully with the lovely ideas the Design Team have should help you on your way.
I started with a sketch from another challenge, but somehow got off track & only created using the sketch so far & then I sort of went off on my own, which means I won’t be entering it in the other challenge. Thank you Mary-Jo for your inspirational challenge!
I will be the first to admit I haven’t used Chocolate Chip in a long time, so decide to use that for my Base Card. I wanted the colours to be beachy without going traditional, so I teamed it with Tangerine Tango with a touch of Always Artichoke. I’m really happy with the final result, although the picture does not do it justice. For some unknown reason I had a hard time taking a photo of this card. The photos all seemed to be blurry…..
I had so much going around in my head about what to do, so instead of going to create something new, I decided to pull out my “Another Day” Box – that is what Gwen calls it!!!!!! Don’t you love that name? I think it is a perfect name for that box that we all have sitting somewhere in our Craft Rooms. Mine just happens to sit on my desk. I often find myself going through it & finding “stuff” that I had completely forgotten I had started & didn’t finish. My card is one of those!!!!!!
When the Catalogue first come out I was just so excited to find a sea set sitting there waiting just for me to get my hands on. Anything to do with the beach & I am “gone”. “By the Tide” was the first set I purchased. In fact it was a purchase by itself & started playing as soon as it arrived, but then obviously didn’t finish it. All I had to do was basically add the Base Card & that was it! How easy was that? Everything had already been done.
By the Tide 2….
In my classes I like to showcase different cards using the same stamp sets & supplies, eg Cardstock, Inks, etc. I am a firm believer that you do not have to have a lot of cards to achieve great results.
When I first saw the Ovals Collections in the Seasonal Catalogue an idea sprung into my head. Then when I flipped over to see this great stamp set “By the Tide”, I got more excited, as I could combine the 2…….
