Hiya, today I have a share of some cards that I made for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for a Stamper’s Challenge. The stamp set and matching dies are from Paper Smooches and are called Sweet Escape. I was surprised at how easy this set was to use and when I started out sketching ideas, they just kept coming…. that hardly ever happens!
So here they are,
Okay, so that was a mass of photos I know, hope you were inspired! Hugs

Today I have the absolute pleasure of being asked guest at the Time Out Challenge. This is a fab and fun challenge where my card is CASed by the design team and whoever else wants to join in, it’s totally your interpretation, isn’t that wonderful. I can’t wait to see how my card inspires!
I’m so glad you could visit today and now it’s time to head over to the Time Out Challenge blog to see how the team have been inspired by my card!
Back today with another Cards4Men video and today it’s all about the shadow, a ‘By Request’ video (yes, this is for you Ange). I’ve used Prismacolor Pencils on this card but you could apply this technique to any kind of medium… I just find pencils are the easiest for me to blend out. But with practice, anything is possible (well, nearly lol.) Remember, after all, it’s just paper!
I had so much fun colouring this character, I’ve got a new set of Polychromos pencils, but for some reason headed to my Prismas again. I know that I am just going to have to venture there soon…
…it’s just so much is happening around here, I’m moving my room around, I have a new computer, with a new computer program, new office 365 as well as a new video editing program, so needless to say, BIG learning curves happening here on the coast, and with lots of cards to make (wish me luck)!

We all agree that masculine cards can be difficult to make, but when it’s for an older teen then it becomes almost impossible lol. Today I thought I would share a video making a card that should make any young man smile.
Oh my, I couldn’t believe that my stash of masculine cards is pretty much gone, I think there has been way too much Christmas card making going on round here, so I had to fix it and real quick as I have a few December birthdays to sort. So I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process and learn some ‘boy’ design card tips lol.
Sadly today is my last installment for the 2015 Same but Different Christmas Series and I have saved one of the easiest and funkiest techniques til last, cause we all know it’s getting very close now and lets face facts, if your cards are not made yet you are going to want something real nice and easy… Oh, and elegant and fun to make too!
