Nope I am not chomping down on wood with my teeth or anything else (you dirty minds you-I am saying this like James Cagney). I have been able to make some cards and enter some challenges. Plus, I am happy to say I was inspired by a Battle Of The Bands song choice called Melancholy March (Curious As A Cathy's choice). Here they are......
Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes
Fairy Tale Stampers-Anything Goes
Whimsy Stamps Challenge-Anything Goes
I loved that song that Curious As A Cathy chose, sung by the great Julie London(If you click on Cathy's name above you can hear the song). Since it is March and it is a bit Blah here, I created a card with bare trees and chose some earthy tones..except for the gold, blue and deep teal-hahahaaaa. I sponged on some pale blue and burlap colour for the background and stamped the trees in basic brown. I took various cardstock and layered the image on top of one another. I took a swirly stamp and stamped on the gold in teal and used clear embossing powder. I finished it with border sticker and a little wink of Stella glitter on the trees since March can bring on frost.
Simon Says- Bit O' Green
Glitter 'N Sparkle-Use some Green
Dream Valley-All About the Birthdays
I used a new stamp I got and decided to use various shades of green(using tombow markers) for a summer hike in the woods. I embossed the white glossy cardstock. Cut out the oval and placed it on top of the embossed card, added the ribbon and the Happy Birthday sticker. I only entered in 3 challenges for this card:)
Happy Stampers-Case the Designer
Now this was fun to do except I don't have a nice sizzex cut out so I cut out the windows with a craft knife. It's a bit wonky but I am not a perfectionist so I am still happy with it. It would drive my hubby insane! (enter evil laugh). We all have tons of paper pieces flying around so I used this combo and then added the scenes in each. I stamped them all and many I cut out and placed them in the frame. I added some sticker borders and crystals. I rarely make Easter Cards so this will go to my friend again, who needs a pick me up.
52 Christmas card Throwdown-Use Green
ABC Christmas Challenge- E is for Embossing
CraftyHazelnut Challenge 2-Anything Goes
I love that shiny paper which prooves I must have been a magpie in a previous life. I used my sizzex to cut out the centre and the borders in white. I stamped the sentiment in green and embossed it in green as well. I added some green bling and ta-da!
March the 14th is my daddy's birthday and he would have been 103! I know he is happy with my Doggie, Katie, walking around some bush inspecting timber. Have a great week everyone!
