Myth & Magic at Cardz 4 Guyz

Time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our theme is Myth & Magic. This could be legends, King Arthur, Robin Hood, Merlin, Harry Potter, Dragons, Sourcerers, Magic Potions, Unicorns - you get the idea

For my card I've followed this layout from Friday Sketch




I've gone with a cute dragon by Wild Rose Studio called Party Fergus and coloured him with Promarkers adding texture to him by dabbing the blender pen. The papers are from an old KandCo pack called Hopscotch



I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
 C.R.A.F.T. challenge which is Fantasy
Fantasy Stampers  challenge which is Boys Rule

About Time at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our theme is About Time. For my card I've used the Tim Holtz Tick Tock die cut from card and embossed with some Debbi Moore Metal Magic blue copper powder. The sentiment is from an old Stampin Upset called Sense of Time. I've edged the backing paper and sentiment with the embossing powder and sprinkled some on the paper and heated from behind


I hope you#ll join us for this challenge but please remember to make you creation suitable for a male

Washi Tape

I've never really understood the fad of washi tape but the latest theme at The Butterfly Challenge is to use it so I had to dig deep in my craft stash to find some. The first card ended up in the bin - it just didn't look right. This the second  attempt - not quite what I had planned though. The washi tape is attached to a strip of card and raised on foam pads. The butterfly die cut is inked to match the colours of the tape

Orange and Brown at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week we want you to use Orange and Brown on your creations

For my card I've used a Kanban topper - do you remember these bikes? I'm not sure the make of the backing paper as it was from a pile of odd bits on my desk




We'd love to see what you come up with for this challenge but please remember to make your creations suitable for a male

Cardz 4 Guyz - T Is For ..........

It's time for a new challenge here at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week our theme is "T is for ....."

My T is quite obvious and I've used the ties from the Stampin Up set Best Dad Ever stamping onto some offcuts of blue paper. The sentiment is from a Taylored Expressions set called Punny Man.


I'm also taking this over to the Snippets Playground and to the Less Is More challenge which is Snippets and where the lovely Di is so appropriately the guest designer - well done Miss x

We'd love to see what your T stands for but don't forget to make your card suitable for a male

T Is For Talisman at The Butterfly Challenge

The current theme at The Butterfly Challenge is T is for Talisman. This is a very sad card for me as it's for the lovely couple that run my local craft shop in Ringwood, Tulip Crafts, as they are closing down at the end of this week. I'm so going to miss them both and the Wednesday craft classes. I wasn't sure whether to make a sorry you're leaving card but thought a good luck card was more positive as they move on to pastures new. The hanging butterfly charm is from a pair of earings but thought it would make a perfect talisman. The letters are cut from funky foam and I've heated and stamped into some of the letters to give them texture
