my son asked my to make a card for his teacher - he is a real popular guy and the whole class loves him. So a masculine card is in order and what better to use than the fabulous inspiration picture from Papercrafting Magazine Mondays challenge!
They are celebrating their 100th challenge - woot, woot - I am happy I can be part of this!
Here is my card:
I used the Rainbow Stripes die by Papertrey and did this as inlaid die cut technique with shimmer paper. the die cut sentiment is by Lil Inkers - die cut it from cardstock as well as fun foam - so much easier than cutting mutiple layers and gluing them together. This is just 2 layers.....The 1000 stamps are by Studio G - they are really alphabet stamps.....added some Washi tape.
Here is one of the inspiration pictures from the challenge - love this, just up my alley - graphic and modern.
Made this for Winnie & Walter and playing with my brand new supplies :)))
I fell in love with that big hi die - so cool! On one of my trips to Michaels I bought those craft notecards - why I am buying cards you may ask....I did ask myself the same question.... but I wanted that paper and thought I'll incorporate it into my own cards - that's why....
I embossed the white card stock with a Papertrey embossing plate. Its quite subtle and you can only see this in the first photograph.
Added the sentiment - also W&W and gilded the edge.
I am still in Father's Dy card mood and what better to use than those funky crazy birds bu Tim Holtz. This one I dressed up with a top hat and brad glasses. The colors are from the current Male Room challenge - see below.
I used watercolor paper and water colors and of course those splatters - they have to be there... The sentiments are a combination of CASual Friday stamps and Studio G stamps.
And now I have a second card to share - made them with my brand new Winnie and Walter stamps. I wanted to play in their challenges now for a long time, but had no supplies...finally Anita from My Papercraft World pushed me over the edge, I caved in and got myself some goodies :))))
All stamps are by W&W - the "wishes" sentiment is fuzzy cut and heat embossed in silver. the geometric pattern at the bottom half is heat embossed in clear. Left a small strip of white card stock at the top and left side of the card and rounded a corner, some sequins and that' its.
In case you are wondering how I came up with this - I was inspired by chewing gum. Yep. Chewing gum - see this:
Saw it while grocery shopping last week and though this would be a great card to make....and bought it just for that reason...That design I may have to use again, but my W&W supplies did not include any circles...
I used teh sketched Tulips, stamped it twice, colored the bottom panel with Brushos and a little extra help from watercolors, tore a center strip out of the top panel and glued both together. Added the heat embossed sentiment and mounted it with foam tape.
So, if you are up for it - CASE my card or any other card and link it up HERE over at STAMPlorations. The InLinkz gallery will be open until the 5th of June - gives you plenty of time! One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.
we had a big celebration on Sunday - our daughter graduated Biomedical Engineering with highest honors (summa cum laude) from college!!!!! Yeahhh! We are so excited! She always was an outstanding student and she still is. I made that card for her:
I made the graduation cap with a diamond die by Lifestyle Crafts and just cut the bottom part by hand. Made the tassel with embroidery gold thread an dadded some left over sequins from aprior project. The gold dots I made with a stamp by Avery Elle - Circle it and WOW embossing powder. The die cut sentiment is by Papertrey.
Here is our daughter showing off her decorated cap:
And here are both of my kids in front of the Biomedical Engineering building on Campus:
Connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Tanja fromLittle Art Cottageand I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our second transatlantic get-together!
This time it was my turn to pick the requirements (and I really wanted to play with those crazy birds....)
Bird(s) and Father's Day card
And here is my card:
First I used this die by SSS and cut the paper, but left it in place. Then took one of those crazy Tim Holtz birds and stamped it on water color paper. Colored it. Masked off the bird and the ABSOLUTELY and splattered in 3 colors. Added Washi tape and the sentiment stamp.
its Sandie's Birthday! And we are celebrating. You probably know Sandie Munro from London days. She is a very active blogger. I first go to know her from being on the team with her on STAMPlorations and now I am on the team with her on ATSM. She is one of the girls behind Time Out and she also on the Uniko team and Inkspirational- so many accomplishments!!!!!!
Happy Birthday dear Sandie! I hope you have a blast!
This is for you - perhaps it arrived on time, if not it will be there shortly....
Since Sandie is a real CAS gal - I kept it CAS for her. That cute little bird is from hero Arts as is the sentiment. The splatter is a Tim Holtz stencil and the arrow is by MME. Added glossy accents to the bird's beak - its colored with Copics.
Many thanks to Kylie from Kylie is Addicted to Stamps, who organised this linky party for Sandie!!!! Join in and make this an even bigger party!!!
time again to play with my paper Smooches goodies. This week its an inspiration picture and after I saw this weeks gorgeous Muse card by Michele Fergusen I knew just what to do! Combine them, of course....
Took my Papertrey Take Three die and cut the window into wood card stock. Stamped the birds on scrap paper, colored them with Copics and fuzzy cut them. the die cut is Paper Smooches as is the Happy Birthday (Sentiment sampler).
This weeks Muse card:

Lastly I added some sequins and rounded one corner - hope you like it!
