Hello to everyone and hope you are having a dry cool week. All my friends in the south please stay dry and away from those rains, my heart goes out to everyone. Hot here today but they say it is going to cool off for the next week and I will be happy to take that. It is time again for Cards For Men challenge #15 and it is all about making a card for a guy or young man that is a Christmas card. Our sponsor for this challenge is Meljen and the image I’m using is called ornament mouse and the sentiment holidays are magical. We would love for you to join us. The challenge ends August 4 2013.
Sentiment and image is punched out with marvy unhida scalloped oval and 3 inch circle. Cut out several sizes of the spellbinders scalloped circle. Embossing folders are stampin up petals a plenty and cuttlebug snowflake. The paper is from paper studio Christmas traditions.
On the embossing folders I hope you can see, I added metallic rub on to the embossed area gold and green. Ribbon was from the Christmas department at Hobby Lobby.
I wanted to try this. I seen it on pinterest. This is Maryann Tree die and to make it look snowy they added some of Martha Steward branch punch. I do like it but next time I will add less branches.
Martha Steward aspen snowflake border for the inside. Left open for a sentiment or a hand written message. These are the copic markers used to color the image.
Lots of glitter…. Colors forest green, red and gold. Krylon gold leafing pen around the image and a few other places. To the hat added some white liquid applique and some stickles glitter glue star dust. The pom pom cut in half and glued it on.
Thanks for stopping. Have a wonderful week.

Thanks so much for stopping by we have another challenge for you at Color Me Creative and it has just started. We hope that you can join us. The image used is just so cute. All the papers are from my scraps. The spellbinder is called floral oval die. Sponged around the image with distress dusty concord ink and stamped a branch from great impression with distress ink bundled sage. Then added pearl pen color pearl pink around the frame.
For some reason I feel like I can’t talk today… so please bear with me… These are some of my favorite colors. The flowers bare from Hobby Lobby from their bridle department. The butterfly is Martha Steward punch. Added some stickles glitter glue the the butterfly color lavender and some ice stickles glitter glue color grape ice.
Punch a punch large fern and the mega rock fern.
I did paper piercing around the hearts and the banners. The alphabet stamps are from Studio G alphabet set, capital letters. The ink I used was from distress ink dusty concord.
The tiny flowers are from Martha Steward hydrangea punch and I only used the tiny ones. The centers used pearl pen color pearl pink. The medium heart is a punch from punch a bunch.
On the inside is Martha Steward floral lace edger punch.. Let open for a sentiment or a written message.
These are the copic markers used to color the image. Here is the close up of the image.
Try and get to the point so you do not have to go on and on… Have a super week everyone. Hope you can stay cool and safe. Summer is going by fast, can not believe they have school stuff already out .

Was outside all morning working on the yard, pulled all the weeds, cut the grass and got all the bird feeders cleaned and all filled for the beautiful birds. Makes me feel good when everything looks so nice. So now I need to post the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week it is “ANYTHING GOES WITH THE TWIST OF BINGO”. These stamps on the front are from Inkadinado and the sentiment is from Stampscapes scenic sentiment. Spellbinders label 8 and for the inside labels 3. Embossing folder (sorry) I did not write the name down. Before adding the colors I put the die (frame) on and used removal tape to hold it so it would not move and applied my colors from off the card stock moving across the paper and starting with the lightness color first.
HERE IS THE BINGO CHART
From the chart I did die/punch, stamped image and twine
also die cut/punch, metal and dry embossing. This is an easy chart and we would love for you to join us the week.
Our Sponsor for this month is Digital Delight by Louby Loo.
I think what I’m going to do is just list what I used on the cards, this way you do not have to read it over and over. I know I would not want to do that.
card sizes are 5.50” by 4.25” just standard size
all of the dots are metal but in different colors
on the inside of most of the cards I used All Night Media Large Sprig stamp
All of the card stock is basic grey but in different colors
Martha Steward border punch Deco Schell
Added several different buttons and some ribbons
The inks I used Versafine Onyx Black and Olympia green.
Inks on the front of this one are Mementos, spellbinders label 8. Inkadinkado stamp.
Inks on the front are Brilliance inks, spellbinders labels 5 and labels 3 for the inside. Inkadinkado stamp.
This one is different I forgot to add the frame to the edges, I left it and wanted to show you how it looked when you do not add the frame to the edges. What way do you like it? I like it with the frame covering the edges so that gives it borders. Embossing folder Argyle. Spellbinders label 5. Inkadinkado stamp.
Stamp is called flower fancy from Rubber Stampede.
This stamp is from Stampfastic, embossing folder houndstooth.
I had to take a picture of the die because I can not fine a name anywhere on it to tell you what it is called.
These are distress inks, embossing folder perfectly paisley, the flowers I have had forever and added purple gems to the center. Inkadinkado stamp.
I do hope you understand or maybe just enjoy the cards. If you have any questions just ask. I was having so much fun making these cards. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
