Stampin Royalty - Shape of things - Circles

I am totally loving this card. I know, I'm bragging a little, but hey. Someone has to tell me how good this card is. I made this card for the challenge at Stampin Royalty this week. Our challenge was to make a project using circles. What to do, what to do. I found this little stamp set on MDS (My Design Studio) Stampin Up's digital card, scrapbooking software, and suddenly an idea popped into my head. I Printed the stamp set out (Jolly Bingo Bits), fussy cut them out, punched out a few circles and; cool. Will be making more of these for Christmas this year. Have a look at what the rest of the design team have made using circles. They really are an extremely talented bunch of ladies. I love being a part of their team.

Freshly Made Genius

This is the card I made for the 100th sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I used the Digital stamp from Tiddlyinks (Genius), he is such a dorky looking fellow, but extremely lovable. The theme for this week over at tiddlyinks is school based, so I will be submitting this card over there as well.

Colour Challenge at Stampin Royalty

I love colour challenges. It really makes you think about your card and takes the hard part about choosing colours away. Oh well, I think I am kidding myself here. This week's colour challenge, really was a challenge. I didn't think that my card was quite the way I wanted it. Well, that was until I stuck the designer paper on. Loving it now. Have a look at what the other design team member have done using the same colours. Amazing stuff.

Dynamic soccer

This is the card I made using the colours from Dynamic Duos this week. I had recently purchased this stamp of Kenny K called Anime Soccer and thought I would give the grey colouring a go. It has been a while since I have completed more than one challenge, but I think that I am getting back on track now.

I Wuf You

Here is the card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches # 99 this week. I used a new digital stamp from Tiddlyinks called Dog Days. I used the MDS to create the background paper, using the paws stamp from the stamp set Patterned Pets. I just re sized, cut and paste to fit the card size I wanted. As you can see, there is a small gap between the paws pattern. I thought that I may be able to use some ribbon here. I have left it off this card because the sketch didn't' have any ribbons or bows. Amazing sketch.

Stampin Royalty Photo Inspiration

This week at Stampin Royalty we have a picture inspiration challenge for you.
The idea is: make a card or project using the picture below as you inspiration. For my card I have taken the Hexagonal design on the wallpaper and the orange and yellow colours. I have used the six sided sampler stamp set and punch from stampin up. The sentiment is from the MDS digital kit called You're my Sunshine, coloured in Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. Just a tad Hybrid with this one.

Great Uses for Scraps

At Stampin Royalty this week we have a little challenge the uses scraps. I have a tendency to use my scraps and turn them into backgrounds like this card here. The blocked background is made from using scrap paper that I have kept. The stamp set is called Stippled Rose, and although retired a few years ago, it is one of my all time favourites. Click on the link below and have a look at how the rest of the design team uses their scraps.
