The Male Room: Landscapes

A new, great challenge at the Male Room

As soon as I saw the theme I knew what
stamps I wanted to use.

Card is made using 3 different shades of ink and Visible Image
stamp set and then a die cut frame.

Check out all the fab landscapes the DT's have made and join the fun.

Vintage nature, tag

It feels that the spring is such a hectic
time, but it's always lovely when I can
find some time to sit and craft.

Here's a tag I made using die cuts,
gorgeous papers and beautiful images from
Gecko Galz.

a picture is worth a ...

I got this gorgeous piece of die cut and paper from
a ATC swap (and sentiment from another swap)
and really wanted to create a card using them.

 So I just added paper with music notes on
and gorgeous image form Gecko Galz.

The Male Room: In the Garden

I'm totally in a spring mood (although we had snow
last Monday), time really flies and there is so many
things you should and now also could do...
... that's my "excuse" for posting late ...
I'm very sorry.

We have a awesome theme at the Male Room
Yes, how to do a manly card with a 
garden full of flowers but there are lots and lots
of ways, hop in to challenge and see what my fellow 
DT's have created and while you are there do join,
we'd  love to see your art.

I had in my card a gardening hare, stamp from
VLV, colored with watercolors.

Art trading stamps

I bought some Carabelle studios stamps set
to make some Art trading stamps.

This is a fist ATS set I've ever made,
using Carabelle stamps and Gecko Galz images.

These tiny things were so fun to make, I'm sure I'll make lots more.

I'd like to enter to some challenges:


Red, Blue and White

VI has this month a color challenge
in their FB page, so I made a CAS
postcard using VI stamps.

I colored the image with Zig watercolor pens and
then used a TH spritzer to add a little spritz.

I'd like enter to these challenges also:
Sweet Stamping - Bright and Beautiful
Simon Says Monday - spritz and splatter
Use your stuff - Flowers and/of butterflies


When dragonflies appear...

I had this lovely left over piece
of laminated napkin (new technique for me that I need to test)
 I got from a swap and really wanted to use it.

U used some dies to cut the pieces and then
I printed a Gecko Galz dragonfly image,
embossed it twice and fussy cut the images.
Sentiment is from Carabelle Studio stamps set.

Sheep Ski Designs: For the Girlz

We have a wonderful new challenge
For the Girlz

I made a card using a very very
special image, it is based on a photo from my daughter.
Andrea was so sweet and did a wonderful
job turning the photo on a digital stamp.

Stamp is called Noora and this is a first coloring to this image,
I kept it very simple but I do like how it turned out.

I wanted to use blue, because it's her (and mine) favorite color,
and she gave this card to her boyfriends 18 birthday, so it went to a guy, :)

I'd like to enter this card to these challenges:
Make my Monday - Use a digital stamp
Cute Card Thursday - Feminine
Creative Knockouts - doily Delight
