613 Avenue Create #39 - Create Your Own Challenge Option

Good Morning!  We're having crisp and sunny Fall days, and I love it!  Today is the start of another Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  You have the option to Create Your Own Challenge - what fun!  Use this chart if you so like:


Our sponsors this week are Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and The Paper Shelter.  I used Dr. Digi's Golf Clubs image.

I used:  1.  Image & Sentiment;  2.  Die Cut (the clouds);  3.  Stickles (on the clouds); 4.  Sequins; and 5.  Faux Stitching (around the golf bag).  I must say, I had a lot of fun with this card.  I used corrugated paper for the grass.  I fussy cut the golf bag and club after coloring with Sharpies and water color pencils, and then used a black Sharpie around the cut edges. I have the need for lots of golf cards since it is my husband's passion.  Our grandson also loves to golf as do several of our friends and relatives.

The sentiment is CTMH  "Splendid Day."  The ink is CTMH Pacifica; The cardstock and corrugated paper are from my stash.

I'm entering these challenges:  Tuesday Throwdown - Clean and Simple; Creative Corner Challenges - The Great Outdoors; 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Anything Goes.

Have fun with our challenge and post your entry.  Winners from last week are on the site.  Happy Crafting!

Everything is from my stash.  I used Sharpies to color the images.  It's difficult to see in the picture, but the pumpkins and swirls have glitter pen added to them for a subtle sparkle.  I hand wrote the sentiment.  I will give this card to my soon-to-be-teen age niece.

Back to School Card for Our Grandson

This is my second post today because I want to enter a couple of challenges.  I created this card for our grandson.  He's excited to be in the 6th grade this year.  So Granny and Grandpa sent him this card with a little something special in it.

I love that sheet of composition paper.  I used my new CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge to cut it.  I stamped the lines on it and the sentiment with the Take Note stamp set, part of the Cricut bundle of stamps that comes with the cart. Isn't it adorable?  I finished it off with Washi tape and punched stars.  The ink and DP are from CTMH.

I'm entering these challenges:  Sassy Studio Designs - Back to School; MilkCoffee Challenge - Back to School; and Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Back to School.

Little Boy Birthday

Today my husband and I went to a birthday party for our little neighbor.  He's the youngest of three boys.  I made this card for him:

Everything is from my stash.  The numbers and sentiment are from CTMH.  It's difficult to see in the picture, but the "2" has sparkle from a glitter pen.  I used Nestabilities oval dies and lightly stippled CTMH Dutch Blue ink on the die cuts and sentiment.

I'm entering these challenges:  Frosted Designs - Numbers; Dream Valley Challenges - For a Child; and Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes.

613 Avenue Create #35 - Anything Goes - Spotlighting Technique Option

Happy Sunday!  It's September 1 - summer is almost over.  Where did the time go??  It's time for our new challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  Our optional twist is Spotlighting, a technique I've never used before.  But I must say I had fun with it.  The site has a link to a tutorial if you're not familiar with spotlighting. Our sponsors are Di's Digis and Sandi's Samples. Here's my card.  I'm obviously thinking about the coming Fall :)

As always, my card is CAS.  I used CTMH Flourished Blessings for my leaves and sentiment.  The inks are CTMH also, Sunset and Honey. The cardstock is from my stash as are the sequins.  I added Liquid Pearls to the center of the sequins.

I'm entering my card in these challenges:  Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes; Simon Says Stamp Blog - Anything Goes; Pumpkin Spice - Anything Goes; My Sheri Crafts - Fall Colors; and Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog - Add Some Leaves.
