Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
This weeks Challenge was to create a card background Detail using a score board or an Embossing Folder, it's so easy to forget the crafting potential we once saw in some of our older tools, so my thinking was this Challenge would get us to look at the score board as more that just a tool to create card bases.
My Challenge card
Amanda's Challenge Card has been scored to give a stunning lattice pattern in the background of her gorgeous floral card, Amanda has used 'Dragonfly Dreams and Awesomely Artistic stamp sets by Stampin' up!
Thank you Amanda for taking part in this weeks sketch Challenge
Michele's Challenge card has a fun 'Nautical' theme this week, using that Embossing Folder was a genius idea Michele admit works perfectly as the waves on the sea behind your Yachts, a fantastic 'Man' card idea and a good way to use an Embossing folder you haven't used in a while, thank you so much for taking part Michele
Karen's Challenge card was made by using a score board for the lines at the bottom of the card, the top was a lovely paper from Karen's stash, die cut with a Spellbinders Border Die, the sentiment was a magazine Freebie!
What an Amazing Christmas card Karen, I love it !!
Thank you for taking part
Janet has used her amazing new vintage stamps to create her Challenge cards this week, they are amazing stamps Janet, your scoring has drawn my eye straight into the stamped image, the little wash of blue on the Hot Air Balloon card is all that is needed as far as colour goes, those stamps are that detailed that nothing much else is required on the card, 2 amazing cards Janet, thank you so much for taking part.
Brenda's Challenge card Is another 'male' card, an amazing one at that!
I love the 'sun rays' effect you have ache Brenda, it works perfectly with the style and theme of your card, I'm sure Callum will love it too, thank you so much Brenda
Val's Challenge Card, so lovely Val, I just love that image so much,
Amazing the addition of those scored lines has increased the size of your card without any other expensive embellishments. Making it more cost effective for the shop cards, I am so grateful you managed to get a card made after losing your Mojo, by the way have you tried looking in your suitcase he might think he's still in holiday!
Hahaha, thank you so much Val
Phoebe's (Sue's Granddaughter) Challenge card, oh my goodness Phoebe, your stamping is just so amazing, I absolutely love the stamp you have used and you are so clever to be able to use a rainbow of colours too, (Ssshh don't tell Granny but you are a better stamper than me and her)!!
The pretty garden at the bottom of your card is stamped beautifully too, thank you so much for making a card for my Challenge, please ask Granny if you can take part again soon.
Margaret's Challenge card has been made using the decorative score section
On her Ultimate Pro Embossing Board, such a pretty swirl Margaret,
The detail has been made by fussy cutting the Flourish Stamp from 'Flourishing Phrases' stamp set by Stampin'Up!, I have no idea how you had the patience to fussy cut that flourish Margaret !! Such a pretty Anniversary card,
Thank you so much my lovely,
Lynda's 2 cards have been made using her new stamps from Inkyliscious,
Diagonal lines on the first card, gives detail to the background,
Works so well with the image stamped into a tag and popped on the card with a flurry of 'Kaleidoscope' of Butterflies to embellish the card.
The second card is again a Inkyliscious stamp, the detail in the stamp is amazing, again Lynda has stamped the face onto a tag and placed on top of that fantastic embossed background, using lines in both directions to create almost 'Plaid' or 'tartan' effect, thank you Lynda for taking time to create a card for the blog Challenge!
Well ladies, you have as always, blown me away with your ideas and perfectly executed cards, i think sometimes you even surprise yourselves!
You are the most amazing friends a girl could ask for!!
Thank you so much
Love and hugs
