My Crafty Weekend

Can you believe this is my second post today.  Click here to see all the cards I made as a Guest Designer at The 12 Kits of Occasions.

My first card combines the sketch at CAS-ual Friday's #209 and the colors at Just Add Ink #428.  I used the new PTI Corner Adorner September stamps.  I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #311:  Anything Goes.

Next up is a card using the Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #356 and the colors at The Color Throwdown #512.  I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes.  I used Stampin Up Totally Trees stamps.

Next up is a card I started to make using the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #291.  After completing the card, I decided I needed to try again.  Because of that, I am entering the second card at PTI Transformation Tuesday Challenge.

Original Card

I moved the balloons higher on to the card, and used just one sentiment/string.  I am happier with the second card.

Next up is a card playing along at The Paper Players #412.  It is a tic tac toe challenge, and I chose the diagonal die cut, pumpkin, green.

Last up is a card for The Male Room #95: The Great Outdoors.  I used PTI Mountain Majesty stamps.

Guest Designer....The 12 Kits of Occasions

I was so very excited when my friend Kim asked me to be her guest for this month's 12 Kits of Occasions.  I was one of the original members of the group, but left a while ago when life got just a bit too busy for me to participate every month.  I have missed the creativity and camaraderie of the group, and had such fun popping in just for this month.

Take a look at the fun kit that Kim sent out.  I used almost every single thing she sent.

I am going to just jump right into the cards, without a whole lot of explanation.  There's always lots to get to.

I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps and More #311: Anything Goes.

That's it for me.  Thank you so much to Kim and the rest of the 12 Kits crew, for having me as the guest this month.

PTI Blog Hop September 2018

Hello there.  I am finally playing along with the PTI Blog Hop, after missing the last few months.  We have this gorgeous photo to inspire us.

My Simply Gourd-eous stamps arrived just in time for me to quickly whip up this card.  I am also entering this card at Just Us Girls #459.

Off to check out the hop.

CASology Week #314...Boy

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's time for another challenge at CASology.   This week, our cue word is BOY.

I decided to make a baby card, and used some giraffes I die cut when Jacquie was visiting me.  It is such a treat to get to visit with a fellow crafter AND use their stamps and dies.

Now it's your turn.  How does BOY inspire you?  I hope you play along this week.  Please remember to keep it Clean and Simple.

Please head on over to the CASology blog and gather some inspiration from the design team.

Joyce (that's me)

Our Guest Designer is Claire G.

My Crafty Week

I'm playing along with MUSE #283, where my bestie Kim has this card to inspire us.  Isn't it cute?  I saw her make it!

Kim's Inspiration Card

I was inspired by Kim's background stamping, and the fun animals randomly stamped.

I picked a card from many years ago to redo for PTI Transformation Tuesday Challenge.  This is truly one of those 'what was I thinking' cards.

My Original Card

I changed the orientation of the card, used stamping instead of die cutting for my main design, and used colors that I thought worked well together.  I used the photo at Addicted to Stamps and More #310 to inspire my colors.  I must admit to liking my new card much more than the original.

My Transformed Card

Next up is a card I made with Kim's supplies when she was visiting.  I am entering it at The Card Concept #98, where my style is Clean and Simple, and also at Seize the Birthday where the topping is Die Cuts or Punches.

I had birds in mind when I pulled out these die cut bird houses, something I cut when Jacquie was visiting and brought some of her supplies to share.  I am entering this card at Addicted to CAS #145: Tweet.

This week's Make it Monday #336: Faux Gilded Leaves was such a fun technique, and I loved Laurie's card so much, I tried to recreate it as best I could.  I am also entering this card at Just Us Girls #459 and Just Add Ink #427: Just add 'K'  The 'K' here is kraft.

Next up is a birthday banner, inspired by the challenge colors at Where Creativity Meets C9 #25, and the Use Those Sequins challenge at CAS-ual Fridays CFC#208.

I loved the fun crafty inspiration photo at Inkspirational #170, and made this card to send to a crafty friend some day.

Last, but not least is a holiday card using a poppystamps die for Poppystamps Challenge #48: Anything Goes.
