CKCB August 2014

We had a few options to choose from this month as we are counterfeiting Studio Calico's Penny Arcade.  I liked the look of the Card Kit, but I didn't really have any papers to use for this kit.

This is the card kit:

Starting with the Cardstock:

Craftables White
Craftables Baby Pink
Craftables Cameo Cream
Rosies Studio Kraft
Rosies Studio Dark Grey

Then my embellishments:
Coral Pink Polka Dot Washi Tape
American Craft Glitter Tape
American Craft Chevron Black and White
American Craft Black and White Bakers Twine
CTMH Gold Shimmer Trim

and the little bits:
Red Die Cut Doily (Coutoure Creations Die)
Various Buttons
Punched Stars Gold Cardstock
Die Cut Cloud Stencil
Kindy Glitz/Stickles Variety

and all my counterfeited Papers (I did a 6 x 6 pad)

I used Gold Cardstock and then stamped CTMH Oodles of Doodles circle in Versamark then heat embossed White ZING powder

I used White Craftables Cardstock Cut to size, then black pen dots, coloured roughly with Spectrum Noir CR3. CR5 and CR7

I used Dafodil Yellow Craftables Cardstock cut to size, then 2cm strips of Trophee Chamois stuck down in 2cm intervals

I used Rosies Studio pale blue cardstock cut to size, then Versamagic White Cloud Chalk ink rubbed in cloudlike shapes.  Then using black pen drew eyes and mouth.  Then with my little pinky, I stamped Momento Rose Bud ink to make the cheeks.

I used Kraft Craftables Cardstock cut to size, then used a Spellbinder scallop border die to cut Trophee white linen cardstock.

I used Craftables Riverstone Cardstock cut to size, then stamped feathers in Black Versafine ink onto White Craftables Cardstock and fussy cut them to stick randomly on the cardstock.  The thinner feather is from Amy Tangerine and the other is from a magazine

I went through my stamps to choose some for the kit, but couldn't decide, so will just use what ones I need/want to use through the month!

Julies Birthday 2014

It's always funny trying to come up with a different card for someone, especially when they make cards too! I had heaps of fun colouring this Lili of the Valley stamp, and layered up papers.  The tricky part is on the inside....

Richard Birthday Card 2014

I was really happy to have a go with a cityscape die, and used it to make a card for Richards birthday.  I inked the clouds onto the background, and then added 4 cityscapes in white, light grey, dark grey and black.  I loved how it looked, but it needed a little something extra, so Jack asked me to put in a plane...  This is what I came up with.
