July 8, 2016 Card Challenge - SGGW Group

Hi Card makers,

Life has been busier than I expected during retirement but I managed to get some stamping time in this week.  This week's Stamping Gals Gone Wild Facebook group challenge was posted on Friday and I just made it on time before another challenge gets posted.

Excuse the quality of the photo.  I used a different editor.

Have a great day!

Can You Case It#115

Hi card makers,

Since I really like the color combination of  red, yellow and black, I had to enter the Can You Case It color challenge again.  I love the #My Favorite Things Four Way Chevron die as the background and base for this card.  The sentiment on this card makes me laugh, but I'm sure we've all had days where we feel like this.
Here's the challenge:

Yay, it's Friday and make it a good one, don't hit or bite anyone!

Can You Case It#115

Hi Card makers,

I'm entering the Can You Case It Card Challenge #115.  I've had this card to post but it's been an incredibly busy week.  I love this color combo - red, black and yellow!  After I finish posting this I'm heading to my craft room to finish making a baby shower card.

All the products I used to create this card are from My Favorite Things.

Here's my card:


I hope you like it!  This is a quick card to put together.  Here's the CYCI#115 Challenge:

UPDATE! April 16, 2016
I was a CYCI Design Team pick:

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #40 Card

Happy Easter Peeps!  (Pun intended.)

The Stamp, Ink, Paper Card Challenge was a tic-tac-toe challenge.   I like that type of challenge because you have lots of options to create a card.

The toughest part of making the card was finding my button shank remover tool.  Love my craft tools.  Alas, I found it and removed the shank from this beautiful rose button.  It's been in my ephemera staff for years just waiting to be used.

Here's my card for the Stamp, Ink, Paper #40 Card Challenge.  I played with the top row: Embossing, Anniversary and Buttons.

I used an embossing folder to emboss the fishtail piece but it's cloudy today and you can't really see the dry embossing.

Here's the sketch:

CAS(E) This Sketch #165

Hello card makers,

I'm trying to get ahead of my card giving events and so I know someone graduating from college and their school colors are red, black and silver.

My circle element is the graduation cap or rather it's official name, a mortar board.  I hope you can see the silver strip of glitter card stock across the card.

That's it for today - 4 posts in one day!

Freshly Made Sketches #229

Hi card makers,

Can you believe it - 3 posts in one day!  This was a challenge for me because I kept thinking about what to stamp within 3 squares in the Freshly Made Sketches #229.  

BUT, I thought out of the box (or square) and decided to use 3 squarish (made up that word!)  The typewriters remind me of high school typing class.  Yep, I learned to touch type on a manual typewriter much like these stamped images. (Ouch, that let's you know hold old I am.)  

It would have been really nice to type on a bright fuchsia typewriter.

Here's the card:

I don't know the name of the company who made the photopolymer stamp and die set.  I know my friend Rubina  purchased it at Tuesday Morning.
