Masculine birthday card

Here we have a card I made today for this month's challenge at Archiscraps.

This is the inspo photo and you need to use knots.  I have two.  They always find such quirky insp pics.

A layout about decision making

Tic Tac Toe TWIST journal about the decision making process










Above is the challenge at Unstampabelles this month. I'm usually fairly decisive in general. I'm a Libran and quite balanced. It's my birthday month. Yay. In fact my birthday is on Saturday and I'm having a big party. Looking forward to it.

I've created a layout using the line ribbon, buttons and flowers.

The photo is of my pussycat lying on top of the clothes I have laid out ready to pack. She also loves to lay on top of our suitcases when we get them out.

Thanks for looking and I hope you decide to join in.

A card for Dad

I've made this masculine card for my DT submission in the September Unstampabelles challenge.

You need to use one or more sets of 3 and add cardboard as the twist, all without using stamps.

I've added 3 papers and 3 chipboard button embellishments.

If you're wondering what the red netting is, it is part of the packaging from a bunch of oranges. Adds great texture don't you think?

See how simple this month's challenge is?  You should enter. Here is what you could win.

Multi media scrapbook page

It's August.  That means all the horses have a birthday on 1 August.  It also means new challenges.

Here is the Unstampabelles challenge for this month:

#71 Collage, collage, collage... TWIST venture into multi- media here

August Collage, collage, collage... TWIST venture into multi- media here (multimedia means using two or more ideas so paint and texture paste or glue and paper or seed beads and paste/glue or ribbon and flowers and paint......)

I'm not a huge fan of multi - media, simply because it takes so long to finish a page.  I do find it fun though.

What I did to create this page was:
  1. Selected co-ordinating scraps of paper and adhered them to my page mostly on the right hand lower section of my brown cardstock.
  2. I used a pallete knife to spread texture paste over the same area.
  3. I pressed a piece of corrugated cardboard into the paste area.
  4. I pressed some bubble wrap over the paste area.
  5. I used several different mists over most the page.
  6. I adhered some buttons and two plastic tile separators (they look like crosses) on to my page.
  7. I matted my photo with patterned paper.
  8. I added some pretty pink Thickers as a title.
  9. I chose a co-ordinating journal paper and wrote on it and adhered it to my page.

What do you think?  I like it.  Now it is your turn!

Here is the prize up for grabs.

Thank you card using pen work


The July 2017 inspiration at Artastic challenge blog is:

Abstract by Robert Klippel

JULY inspiration is Abstract by Robert Klippel

I chose to make a card.  Here is what I did.

I chose a stencil that I thought I could work with.  Then I picked a number of pens in similar tones.

I got my trusty little CM clips and attached the stencil to white paper and cardboard to hold everything in place.

Then I proceeded to very carefully use my pens to trace along the lines in the stencil. I alternated colours. I used the ruler to hold the stencil still.

I used the paper as a backing paper for my card.  I showed my son and he thought it was a patterned paper so I thin it has been successful. I have also coloured in the thank you stamp.

Thanks for looking.
