Party Time Tuesday is anything goes. The challenge at Totally Gorjuss was to use something new. I am a real sucker for punches and dies and I used a Martha Stewart set to do the punching here. It is a thing right now to make the flowerettes, so I gave that a try with a scrap of paper I had.

CAS-ual Friday this week was to make a masculine card that included designer paper. I have such a stash of paper and rarely use designer paper ,so here it is. I am going to start using my stash! I think I will use this card for my father-in-law for father's day.

Do You Stack Up Challenge .where the challenge was to make a landscape. The stamps I used are from Stampscapes. I know people really make complicated scenes with these stamps, but I like the effect. The wheat background is from Hero Arts. The second challenge is at CASual Friday and the challenge was to use a punch or a die. I think I am going to use this for my Father's Day card for my father-in-law.

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Since it is Monday again I will be listing this card on Make It Monday also. I rarely use digital images but while on vacation the other week we went to Barnes and Noble and I found a magazine called The Complete Guide to Digital Crafting. It was a little pricy but ccame with 2 CD's full of digital images and digital paper. It also has samples of several popular software programs that are out there. This image was just perfect for a girl at work that golfs.

Make it Monday post this week. The base for this card is the Neenah Solar White. The colors for the wedding are green, white and black. The beautiful green is Olive Basis. The black accent has a little texture to it and is Black Felt Grandee. I was loooking for the perfect ribbon and the 3/8 " Reversible Satin Ribbin with stitches in Black and Silver worked perfectly.

Make It Monday this week. I love the watercolor look. You are supposed to color the stamp with markers and then use a dampened brush to give a watercolor look. I needed a little more definition than that so I stamped with Stazon and then took the color from the marker with a water pen. I found the background paper in my stash. I think I made it in a class at some time.

Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. I also wanted to use this card for the challenge at Do You Stack up. The challenge there was circles, which fit perfectly with the sketch. I am not one that typically goes for these bright colors, but this one just seemed to fall into place. I also just got the new Tim Holtz distress markers and was dying to try them.
Totally Gorjuss this week was to use a sketch. I found some paper in my stash that worked. I was doing a blog hop this week and saw the idea of doing a punch and then putting words in the punched hole. I thought it was a wonderful idea.

CAS-ual Friday challenge this week. The theme was flowers or trees. I have been wanting to try this technique and thought this would be a good time. You stamp on glossy paper, color with white crayon and then brayer on the color. It gives an interesting look. I think I will try this one again.
