Dynamic Christmas

So, this card turned out better than I thought it would, and I think I will be doing some more of this style in different colours. I made this card for the Dynamic Duos challenge number 13.

I used Crumb Cake and Early Espresso with a little hint on very vanilla. 
(Sounds a little bit like morning tea actually. Coffee, cake with a twist of vanilla.)
The stamp set I used is Merry and Type from Stampin Up.

Christmas in July 2

Here is the second card we made for class this morning. It is a little cleaner card than the previous one. Although there are only a few colours in this card, I think I like it more than the other one. The colours are Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla. There is a challenge over at Friday Mashup, using a Christmas card or Christmas card inside and outside, so I think I will enter this one, as we finished inside and outside.

Christmas in July 1

Here is one of the cards we made at class this morning. It features the Tags til Christmas stamp set from Stampin Up, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla card stock. I used all of the punches that co ordinate with the stamps. (So grateful for these). Here is a closer image of the front panel of the card, for those who didn't quite get the card assembled.

SU Brads and Buttons

SU Only Challenge this week was to use Brads and Buttons. I thought this card would be very well suited to this challenge. If you are wondering what the buttons are, they are supposed to represent the rocks in the back of the dump truck. So I used the stamp set from Stampin Up called I dig You. Being in the Civil Construction field of work myself, this stamp set suits us to the bone, although we have the real things in the back yard, same colour, just a bit bigger.

Tiddly Mojo

I made this card using another digital stamp from Tiddlyinks. I am in love with these images. I used the Mojo Sketch 251 for the layout of the card and some more of the Echo Park paper pack that I used on the Wryn Cowgirl card, and of course, still practising with my Copics.

Tiddlyinks Sketch Challenge

I made this card for the Tiddly inks Sketch challenge this week. I used the Wryn Howdy Cowgirl from Tiddly Inks. The direct link is on the right hand side of my blog if you want to have a look at all the amazing digi stamps. So, as I was using a digital image, I decided that I would use some of my old designer papers from Echo Park Co. The papers came from the 6 x 6 paper pack called Country Drive. I used my copics to colour in the image and the label punch was from Stampin Up. You know there had to be a stampin up item in there somewhere.

Mojo Mashup Chicken

I made this card for the Friday Mashup Challenge for this week.

The punches I used are as following:
Body: 1 3/4" circle punch
Belly: 1 1/4" circle
Crown: Hearts Punch (the one that has three of them)
Feet: Boho Blossom punch
Wings: Scallop Circle
Eyes: Whites 3/8" punch Black circles from build a cupcake punch

Here is the original concept, I just made a few minor changes:

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :Make a project with " Punch Art ".
Or Make a project featuring your " Favorite Animal ".
Or "Mash it Up" and create a project " with an Animal made from Punches ".

Dynamic Bugs

Yet another Bus and Kisses card. This one is for the Dynamic Duo challenge of Crumb cake and another colour of your choice. I chose So Saffron. Only because I have not used this colour for a while now. I also included the banner from Little Additions stamp set. Love using this banner on my cards.

Bugs and Kisses 2

I stumbled across the Just Add Ink challenge site this morning (so I'm a little bit slow) and fell in love with this colour scheme. Since I had the Bugs and Kisses stamp set out already, I decided that I would make another card using the bugs. They really are very cute. So the colours are listed above, and I have already named the stamp set, so that is about it for this card. Well apart from the fact that I followed the Sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. Both links are included below, so click away, and have a play. lol

Create a cupcake

This is the card I made for the Stampin Royalty Picture Inspiration challenge Number 130. I decided that I would go with the Create a Cupcake stamp set from Stampin Up as I have not used this one before and the punch that matches this set make cutting a breeze. 

My supplies include the following, SU Chipboard Numbers, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Whisper White and Tempting Turquoise card and ink pads to match. I cut the squares 2" and used the 1 3/4" circle punch for circles behind the cupcakes.
