Best fishes

Hi everyone! Happy April Fools Day, lol! I get a big charge out of this day every year even though I rarely play jokes on anybody anymore! A new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this morning and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #120 – Male Call! We are being sponsored this month by Bugaboo Digi Stamps so be sure to come over and play – we’d love to see your masculine project! I created a masculine birthday card for an avid fisherman somewhere using the Boy Fishing  Digi Stamp. This image is so super adorable!

2019_0309009a

I dug into my stash of masculine 6×6 papers and created a background with two of them and layered the image on a third. I used graduating sizes of stitched rectangle dies and stamped a ‘best wishes’ type sentiment which I also cut with a stitched rectangle die.

2019_03090010a

I decorated the inside with a couple leftover strips of cardstock and paper from the front, and stamped another sentiment.

My first blog hop project that I’d like to share is a pretty friendship card created with the adorable Rose Vases image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps that I’ve had in my digi stash for a while. I thought this would be the perfect time to break it out. I colored the image with my Studio 71 alcohol markers and cut it with a dotted rectangles die.

2019_0303001a

I cut three more dotted rectangle die cuts in graduating sizes and different colors, layered them all together, and adhered the panel to the front of the card base. I added a couple stickers and a button, and the front was finished.

2019_0303002a

I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment (one of my favorites) on a layered panel.

2019_0303003a

Here’s one more look… very happy with how this turned out. I’m such a sucker for bright colors!

Life’s A Journey … Enjoy The Ride

Hi everyone! As you know, the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog is turning six this month, and to celebrate, we’re hosting a Sixth Birthday Blog Hop & Challenge lasting six days, with six sponsors and six prizes! Be sure to visit the blog to check out all the details! I’m showcasing each of my blog hop projects individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges.

The next blog hop project I’d like to share is a very awesome masculine card I created with the Afternoon Ride pre-colored digital image from Fred, She Said! I cut the image with a rounded square die and then cut another one slightly larger and layered them together.

2019_0303009a

I rounded the corners of the card base and used a small gingham print paper which I cut on a diagonal, using half on the front and half on the inside. I used a piece of black and gold skinny Washi tape on the diagonal edge. I popped the layered focal image up on thick black foam for some dimension.

2019_03030010a

I really love the sentiment continued on the inside from the front – it really goes well with this image! I stamped the ‘Life’s a Journey’ badge (which I punched out using the coordinating punch) and affixed it to the inside.

2019_03030011a

And here’s one more look… this turned out very cool and I’m thinking this might be one for the hubby!

The next blog hop project I like to share is a gorgeous purple birthday card I created using a couple stamps from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Whole Shebang stamp set. This stamp set has some of the coolest sentiments ever!

2019_03030020a

I layered a piece of digital paper on dark purple cardstock to create the background. I stamped the large birthday sentiment on white cardstock and cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I cut another stitched rectangle die cut from medium purple cardstock and another stitched scallop die cut from the dark purple cardstock, and then layered them all together. I adhered them to the background which was then adhered to the card base. I added some white gel pen dots to the sentiment and a few gemstones to complete the front.

2019_03030021a

I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, then stamped the sentiment.

2019_03030022a

And one final look… loving how this turned out! What an amazing stamp set!
