Cardz 4 Guyz: Triangles

Good morning.  After a few months off, I am back to creating things for the Cardz 4 Guyz design team.  This
week's theme is triangles.

For my DT card, I decided to use some old Paperartsy stamps that I've had for a few years.  I stamped them onto patterned papers and stuck them onto kraft card, then matted and layered onto more patterned papers. 

Some nice simple cards to get me back into the swing of things!

I look forward to seeing everyone's creations this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.

Hold on Harry

Hi everyone.   I'm taking a break from all the design teams for a while, as I have so much going on at the moment and was struggling to keep up.  I'm hoping that this will give me some time to do a bit of carfting "just because", so I will still post here. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my partner's birthday using a brilliant digi stamp called Hold on Harry by Bloobel Stamps.  I coloured him with Prismacolour pencils.  I hope you like it.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Cardz 4 Guyz: Metallic Madness

Hi everyone!  today it's my turn to choose the theme at Cardz 4 Guyz  I've chosen a theme of Metallic Madness - use something metal or metallic on your card.

I decided to do some metal embossing, which is something I hadn't done for quite a while.  I started with a piece of thin copper, stamped an image on the back with Stazon ink, then placed my them stamped metal on a foam mat and used an embossing tool to go over the stamped image.  I added the frame using a roller tool.

I wanted to make the embossed panel look old, so I painted it with black acrylic paint and then rubbed it off with a piece of kitchen roll.  I left it to dry, then matted and layered it onto black and gold card.

To create the background of the card, I dabbed Versamark ink through a stencil then gently brushed on  mica powder in various metallic colours.

To finish off my card I added some die cut cogs and wheels and a stick on sentiment.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Guyz.
