Halloween swaps

This was not an easy swap for me - I have never celebrated Halloween, and didn't have any suitable images in my stash! So I found this sentiment in Wacky wishes stamp set, and some spooky colours. Quite quick and easy!

Artful Stamper's swaps

August swap was a male card, suitable for Father's day. 
Male cards are not always easy for me, but I went for my favourite stamp set and neutral colours. It is the Wetlands stamp set - love the "sketchy" feel of these images, and beaches are my relaxing space, so this is an image that resonates in all ways.
Managed a couple of colour-ways. I usually leave sentiments until I've decided a recipient.

Another build a card.

I love these "build a card" - helpful inspiration when you need it (or even if you don't). This was perfect for a dear friend having a special birthday!

"Build a card" completed

Finally have time to upload the completed cards - 6 in total, all following the same instructions, with the same stamped image, and the same colour-way. All different.

I had so much fun doing this, and Alisa is starting another Build a card now, so I might have more to post in a few days.

Build a card

I have been participating in Alisa's Build a card project for the past few days. The idea is to follow posted instructions daily until the card is completed. So far, we have
1) stamped and cut out an image in particular colours (pink, green and yellow)
2) selected a card base and first panel (from the same colors) Note that the stamped flower is not attached.
3) add another panel with with 2 banners - one from the same as base card stock.
As I find it easier to work in multiples, I stamped and cut out 5 more images, so here are the other 5 card bases so far. More to follow later in the week, time permitting.

Feb swap

The Artful Stampers Feb swap was an Easter card, which had me thinking! I don't have any specific Easter stamp sets, so I used the Whacky wishes sentiment, and stamped a background using Flower patch stamps. It was fun, and I will use this method again for very original "dsp"

Blog Hop 76

Artful stampers blog hop was a sketch this week. I turned it on it's side. It was super quick to make this card, and a great way to use up all those scraps that I can't throw away!

This is what I came up with.
