Crazy 4 Challenges - It's all about Water!

Today is Swim a Lap Day!  We want you to include some form of water on your card for our challenge this week......a river, the ocean, a pool, raindrops, bubbles - you can go crazy!

I used a water stamp from Hero Arts and inked it up with all sorts of blues.  I added some sand using kraft cardstock and sponged kraft ink onto my stencil to jazz it up a bit.

I stamped the Lockhart Adirondack chair and flowers with Memento Ink, coloured it haphazardly using Spectra Alcohol Markers and fussy cut it out so I could pop it up onto the "sand".

I die cut the Papertrey Ink hearts and stamped the Reverse Confetti sentiment using black ink.

Why don't you swim over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and enter your creation?!  Great fun and fabulous practise!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C390

Hey everyone! Since it is the third week of the month for Crazy 4 Challenges, we have a sketch  - quite easy for you (and me-yay!).

I decided to do a bit of watercoloring - just a bit - and water-washed a blue and green background with Zig Real Brush Markers onto Crafter's Companion watercolour cardstock.

After drying with my heat gun - because I'm impatient - I diecut the watrecoloured panel with an MFT stitched rectangle.  I adhered that panel to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of patterned paper which was adhered to my white card base.

Using Papertrey Ink's Inspired by Prayer stamp set and Prayer die, I crafted my sentiment. A few sporadic clear sequins from Pretty Pink Post and it was finished!

Take a hop over to Crazy 4 Challenges and try out the sketch and link up!

June is Rose Month!

Good Day!  Did you know that June is Rose Month? Me either!

That is our challenge this week at Crazy 4 Challenges, - Roses!! Whether you want to use one rose or a bouquet of roses - anything is fine - just go for it!

I had extra dies from last week's card, so they were perfect to use! And....we have had to use these dang sympathy cards lately....ugh so sad.

I use all Reverse Confetti product for my card - except for the middle scalloped panel - that is Papertrey Ink. Check them out!

Just a short post today - I think I am the lucky recipient of intestinal flu - yikes and yuck.

It's Repeat Day on Crazy 4 Challenges!

Good day - oh boy it feels good to be back - if even sporadically!

We have had a few changes going on in our home (all good) so I have been rearranging.  That means my craft room - holy yuck I have a lot of stuff - yikes.

Anyway - back to Crazy 4 Challenges. Did you know that today is Repeat Day! - so with your creation this week, we want you to repeat something three times.

It could be three circles, three flowers, three elephants - whatever you think deems repeating - even PICKUP YOUR SOCKS! - 3 times - we've all done that haha

I took a different route, sort of.  I used three images dies - two times each - and that counts believe me!

Using Reverse Confetti Rose Garden stamp set and Confetti Cuts, I stamped the rose image twice with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then sponged Piggy Back, Flamingo and Rose ink onto the roses and diecut them.

I stamped and diecut two leaves and two spriggy leafy things and arranged them all in a pleased order onto the Linked Circles Cover Panel Confetti Cuts, which in turn was popped up onto a panel of Smoke cardstock.  That whole panel was then adhered to my Piggy Back card base.

Using Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink, I stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti Simply Sentiments onto white cardstock and adhered it to my card.

There you have it!  Come on over to Crazy 4 Challenges and try this week's challenge!!

Forget Your Trebles!

Did you know that tomorrow is International Jazz Day?!  That is our theme for this week at Crazy 4 Challenges - music!  Use music designer paper, musical notes, - be inspired by a song - whatever musical moves your fancy!

I used CAS-ual Fridays Big Treble stamp set and their Treble Clef Fri-die for my creation this week.

Easy Peasy with these stamps and dies!
