The Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge June 2015

Hi everyone, I had to quickly jump in and share the card I only just now finished making for the Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge entry for June 2015.  The free digital image was kindly given by Anne's Digital Art.  That's one of the positives of being in this challenge, it pushes me to make a blog entry at least once a month!  *smile*

Ok, so for this entry I wasn't too happy with my colouring as I can see the texta strokes in the background.  After thinking about how I could fix it I ended up covering the entire panel in clear wink of stella which sort of masked the texta strokes.  Now I still didn't much like how my piece had turned out, but then I put some strips of green scallop punched cardstock around it and a sentiment and now I like it much more :o)  I hope you do too!



For inspiration, please check out their gallery here.

If you would like to join the challenge then email them with your email address.  You can find all the details here.

I have been asked to make a birthday card featuring dinosaurs and a farewell card to a workmate relocating to Bundaberg so stay tuned for some more creations coming this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheers
Karen

A Special Birthday

Hi there!  Sorry that I haven't been keeping up with my blog, but the time just keeps flying by so fast!  

I jumped in quickly to share with you a card that I made using some of the supplies I spoiled myself with at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo 2015.  Seriously, I did some damage to the credit card, but it was my 40th so I figured I would only be 40 once.  Maybe I'll get to splurge again like that on my 50th! lol.  

Anyway, among my spoils were various sets of stamps and dies from Stampendous.  I made my first pop up card using their special pop up die and the forest set.  Here is a link to their website if you want to check some of their products out.  I think they're in America though.  

Several boo boos were made during this card, but I really love how it turned out, I hope you do too!

Well I'll try to pop in now and then, but until next time, stay crafty!
Cheers
Karen
