Over at CAS-ual Fridays they have a color challenge going on to use Kraft and White.
Embossed the brick background on a piece of kraft cardstock then swiped some white ink all over it. After that dried, stamped the big flourish across the bricks. Found the piece of kraft and white striped dp in my stash and stamped the big happy birthday from CAS-ual Fridays with kraft pigment ink and heat embossed with clear ep. Layered onto some darker kraft cardstock and the card base is a lighter kraft.
It's time for a Photo Week Challenge at Just Us Girls! Maria has chosen a fun Photo for our inspiration!
Sadly, this is our last week with our amazing Guest Designer, Darnell Knauss. Please check out the JUGS blog to see how Darnell and the rest of the Design Team were inspired by this Photo.
I pulled out this old Stampin Up Flamingo and colored with Touch Twin markers. Stamped the pineapple and little flower from Concord & 9th and added the little banner which is a stamp from WPlus9. Added some yellow gel pen dots to the scallops, it really is a deep pink, but looks red in the photo.

Watercolored the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird and die cut. Stamped the circle image from Ellen Hutson's Bokeh Dots in Memento Plum. Stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti with Versafine Onyx Black and die cut and layered.
Next a masculine birthday card for the challenge #176 at Cardz for Guys - Fancy Folds
This uses Concord & 9th Stripe Builder and Celebrations stamps and dies. It also uses a dot from Ellen Hutson's Bokeh Dots (to cover a couple of smudges). Added black Stickles to the bow and a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in black. This is an interlocking fold created with the Celebrations die set, and yes it is off center. :)
Stamped and die cut the beer bottle from Altenew's Bottleful. I used Distress Oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. The striped pieces are from Concord & 9th and stamped in Altenew Lagoon ink.
It's time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls and this week is Color Week with Me as your hostess! I was thinking about the kids getting ready to go back to school and it made me think of crayons, so I chose 3 of the primary colors from the crayon box.
Check out the JUGS blog to see how these colors inspired our Guest Designer, Darnell Knauss and the rest of the Design Team.
I used an old Gina K set - Oh Boy! using the sailboat and sentiment. Added various patterned papers from my stash and added some die cut stars cut from glittered cardstock. This is for my youngest grandson's first birthday.

The background is stenciled with Distress Oxide ink in Broken China. Then stamped the dragonfly from an old SU set, but the background was showing through the wings, so stamped it again on some white cardstock, colored the wings and added some Stickles. Cut out the wings and paper pieced onto the original dragonfly. Added some Sakura black glaze pen over the body of the dragonfly. Then die cut the sentiment from some black Glitter Silk cardstock by Core'dinations.

Double D using neutrals - tan, cream, kraft, off white, etc. with texture
I started off by stamping the map from Concord & 9th with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on some thin cork. Die cut a brown frame for a mat and then another frame from ivory cardstock which I covered with Versamark and heat embossed with Distress ep in Vintage Photo. Used a cream piece of diamond embossed cardstock from Core'dinations and onto a base made from Gina K Sandy Beach. Die cut a heart from kraft and distress with some brown ink. Sentiment is stamped with Espresso Truffle, die cut the tag and sponged the edges with more Espresso Truffle. Tied the tag onto the heart with some brown/cream baker's twine.
It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Lisa has chosen the word "Shower". This could be a rain shower, baby shower, bridal shower or bathroom shower. What are you going to create with a Shower?

Stamped the umbrella, colored with Touch Twin markers and cut it out. Stamped the sentiment and punched with word window punch. Die cut the banner from turquoise and punched out the center again with the word window punch and inlaid the sentiment. Added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Neptune for rain drops. The striped background paper was found in my stash.
