For the Men in Your Life

Time for a masculine challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  This challenge we are sponsored by Limited Runs and Miezo Stamps. 



I had enough time to create cards using images from both sponsors!
The first card I created uses an image from Limited Runs called Sports Car.

I have also used a paper and some toppers from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some silver brads (which are a new purchase) and some die-cut letters cut from black cardstock for the sentiment.


The second card I created uses an image from Miezo called Bears on the Beach.



I have also used a paper from a paper pad.  Colouring is with copic markers and the faux stitching is with a Distress Marker.  I also added some some seaside embellishments that I purchased just after New Year.

The third card I created uses an image from Miezo called Cat 2.


I have also used a couple of papers from a paper pad by Authentique.  Colouring of the image is with copic markers.  Matting is black cardstock.  I also added some black pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Pink Green and Yellow

I went to buy a CD from a Hi-Fi store yesterday and came across a really great dollar store that I didn't know about!  I bought a few ribbon packs and a couple of packs of glitter embellishments (hearts and stars).  I didn't have enough money with me to get anything else so when I get a chance I am going to go back there and have a good look around!

http://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.co.nz/2017/01/challenge-79-ribbons-andor-pearls.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I was thrilled when I realised that the main three colours in this paper matched the colour palette at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge.  The image is from Lemon Shortbread and is coloured with copic markers.  I matted with some bright pink cardstock.  I also die-cut a butterfly from the same cardstock.  The ribbon is from a pack of ribbons that I bought yesterday. 

Heart Warming Moments

It is the midway point of the first challenge of 2017 at 12 Months of Christmas and the theme is Out with the Old, In with the New. So, include in your creation somehting old and something new. My old is the digital paper which I have had for a couple of years and the die I used to cut the image.  My new is the santa head embellishment and the sentiment both of which I purchased recently. Our sponsor for this challenge is Ike's Art

I have used an image from Ike's Art along with a paper from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.



I also used the embellishments I purchased recently as well as a die from Spellbinders to die-cut the image.
