Back with another CAS design in my Cards 4 Men series and today I am ‘Repeating’ myself… the images, that is. I show you how I find it really easy to line everything up by using my Fiskar’s Stamp Press.
Hiya, today I have the second installment in my new Cards 4 Men series and this time I am having fun with a Neat & Tangled set called ‘Woof’, these little fellas totally make me smile and I just know that one day instead of flying this little dog will be swimming… but that’ll be for another video.
Did you survive Christmas? Hope the big fella was good to you and there were some crafty goodies involved. Today is a quick post and something very non-Christmassy, because aren’t we glad that that’s all done for yet another year lol. I love this fun set of stamps and I think they are perfect for a ‘boy’ card, although I did add a little stickles glitter to the top of the party hat, not too ‘girly’ I hope…
Hope you are finding some time to have fun (and get crafty) this holiday season, I have the pleasure of working night duty so not much excitement around here, but thank goodness for air conditioning!
Thought I would sneak in some challenge inspiration and as usual Michele never fails to deliver at this week’s MUSE and here it is in all it’s fabulousness!
I kept the basic sketch very similar although changed the orientation of the card and was wondering if would you could call a pig cute? Well I think that this one is! I also added a ‘slightly’ bold sentiment….
This card also fits the bill over at Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge for Diecember, where it’s time to go ‘Die Crazy’, and as you know I loves my dies! A word of warning though, I’m back tonight with a video for Altenew so I’ll see you again real soon!
Other Supplies: Shape N Tape – Silver. Stamps – Close To my Heart – Animal Greetings Operation Smile. Prismacolor Pencils – Warm Grey 10%, Cool Grey 50%, Deco Pink. Pink Rhinestones. Cardstock – Taffy.
How COOL is the inspiration over at the new Pinterest Inspired Challenge, I definitely didn’t want to miss out and you should see the gallery, not to mention the fab DT entries WoW! I decided to film as I created, lots of fussing today, which is typical if I have no definitive plan… that seems to be the drill, but no rush, I’m playing anyway.
Welcome to my new series called Colour with ‘U’. I decided since I have so many fabulous stamps (wink) and I enjoy colouring sooo much that this series would be fun. With so many different mediums and techniques this series could go on forever… but I suppose we’ll have to see about that one lol.
I know that many of us struggle to make those all so difficult masculine cards, so today I thought I’d kick things off with a very CAS masculine design using one of my all time fave mediums, Prismacolor Pencils!
What a blast this has been! I have totally saved my favourite technique til last, it is super easy and seriously has the WOW factor in my book.
Thanks so much for sharing with me at Addicted to Die Cutting and I plan on returning shortly with a series of quick Chrissy cards for those of you who are like me and always leave it til the last minute.
This week for Muse I wanted to share a card I made for a guy who was leaving at work (for some reason I’m the designated creator of cards for all occasions at work… which I’m sure may ring true to many of you as well lol)
This is a fun graffiti technique that was shared by Shari Carroll at the Online Card Class, and I especially love it for masculine designs. I hope you have some fun with it and I can’t wait to see how you are inspired.

I was so excited when my new stamps arrived from Mama Elephant that when my hubby asked me to create a 21st card from a group of workmates that I just had to ink them up for the current Challenge! …and ever since I saw Shari Carroll make her fabulous Graffiti inlay die cut card at the Online Card Class I have been addicted to this style, so I thought I would combine the two.
Oh my, I really need to get to and make some DT cards as I have a huge month in May and was planning on getting ahead, but these Panda’s really couldn’t wait lol. Have a great one, the weather is perfect here today and it’s a long weekend here in Australia, so I may just have to make my way to the beach (again).
