#215 At Least Two Dies/Punches or One of Each

Jackie is hosting today's challenge, At least two dies/punches or one of each!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Jackie

My card was made using dies from my stash - there are at least 5 different ones used here!

Josephine

We reorganised our kitchen before putting the house on the market and needed to fill a bit of wall. These use a range of dies, stencils, stamps, paint, glitter pens and embossing paste. Details on my blog.

Judy

This card I made for the challenge uses a digital image by All Dressed Up and 2 rubber stamps by Stampin Up along with Distressed Oxides. The two dies I used on the card are the circle stitched and the butterfly die. More info on my blog.

Angela

I can hardly believe that I actually used six dies on this card! The borders are two by Sue Wilson, the centre by Clarity stamps. The butterfly uses two dies by Tim Holtz and the sentiment is by Tim too. Ribbons, glitter and gems complete the card xXx

Mary

I used several dies form Tattered Lace to make this card.

Glenda

I have used 4 die's and a Mo Manning image in the creation of this card. Please see my blog for all the details.

Julie

I have used 9 dies and Meet Me In Paris Paper Collection

Maike

I have used a stitched frame die as well as a die for the grass, this cute fence and the pink clouds in the sky.

Margaret

For my card I have used a border punch to edge the top layer of paper and I have used a die to create the cogs and wheels. The collage includes a clock and assorted ephemera.

Wishing you a wonderful day!! xx

Jo

I used a selection of dies and punches on pink & silver mirri card then finished with some faux pearls.

This beautiful rich, warm background is perfect for the sunflower image.
 
The flower here is both delicate and vibrant at the same time. Gorgeous
 
I love this, it transports you somewhere magical. Is the whale in the sky or are those birds underwater, who knows what happens in dreams.
 
Such a gorgeous mixed media tag. There is so much going on and the colours all tone so beautifully.
 
Two beautiful designs, the ink blending in each is fabulous and the white embossing really pops against the background.

Thought I'd mix this up a bit so I used an embossing folder by Crafters Companion on the pink background and heat embossing using an Imagination Crafts stamp which was applied to a card smooshed with Distress Oxides. Instructions for making are on my blog.

#213 For a Man/Boy

Maike is hosting today's challenge, For a Man/Boy

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the For a Man/Boy theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Maike

I have used one of Gerda Steiner's adorable kittens and accompanying images to create an encouragement card.

Josephine

The owl stamp is from Studio Light, and stamps from various manufacturers are used in the background. Inks are Distress, Versafine and a little Memento. A card for my son.

Judy

I made this moose card for a friend's birthday. I have a real hard time coming up with an idea for a masculine card but I liked this idea. I used a large moose die cut along with Tim Holtz's tree stamps and my watercolour crayons for the background behind the moose. For the layering paper I used a Stampin Up Stamp mesh stamp.

Jackie

My card was made using stamps from my stash coloured with promarkers for a fisherman...

Angela

I stamped directly onto the card blank first and then onto a piece of leftover background paper which had been coloured with distress Oxides. The bear himself was stamped onto craft card which had also been smooshed with Oxides. I completed the card with the die cut stars, dewdrops and Glossy Accents on the eye glass.

Mary

I have used stamps from the Tatty Twinkles set called gardening and coloured the images using Promarkers.

Glenda

The stamp is by Art Impressions and is coloured with Copics. I framed the image with cardstock and added woodland designer paper to the background. I embellished with leaf dies cuts and a curvy border die. The sentiment was created in Word.

Margaret

For this card I have used some older Kaisercraft papers. The chipboard cogs are by Little Birdie and were heat embossed. I have also used brads to attach some small pieces of twine ribbon and added a piece of plaster tape.
Have a wonderful day!

Jo

I layered up coordinating papers and card then finished with the fab topper. I embellished with some string, die cuts pieces and the word 'awesome'.

Agnieszka chanya13

I made a card with car for a little man.

Julie

I have used Distress Oxides, Sheena's Remember When Stencils and Starlight Texture Paste From Imagination Crafts.

Marlene

I have used a Whiff of Joy Stamp which I have had for ages so I decided to ink it up.

Dr. Monika

I made this big size mixed media tag with a vintage touch, specially for my Dad. I used lots of Prima-Finnabair Patina effect pastes and Rust effect pastes. I added a vintage portrait along with a sentiment "Brave and Handsome" from Tim Holtz idea-ology. For more details, visit my blog.
