Music loving teen

A CAS and masculine card today!  I made this using Srif Craft Artist 2 and printed out the guitar and headphones twice so I could decoupage them.

Jasper is 12!

I is my middle child’s birthday today and I have made him a card using a digikit called RockStar from Daily Trail.  The cards is flat and has a co-ordinatinting insert.  The font came from a different digikit.  I love the simplicity of this card as my boy – like most 12-year-olds is not into fussy cards.

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – Make it for a man

This is the time of year when children thank their teachers – but what about music teachers? I have made this card today for The Cheerful Stamp Pad, using a digistamp and backing papers from SentimentabaSusan  – available at the Stitchy bear outlet.  I have used stash from Kanabn’s McKenzie and Stampunk ranges to collate the card and the beautiful acetate overlay is from Hunkydory.

Cellist from The Paper Shelter

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:

1Peter 4:10

I have made a musical card for today’s project.  The Digistamp is from The Paper Shelter, and is called Cecilia.  I have coloured her using my ever-trusty Promarkers, using the following colours:
Hair: Buttercup, Mustard, Sandstone, Cocoa
Skin: Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Dress: Pear Green, Moss
‘Cello: Walnut, Rosewood, Terracotta, Honeycomb

The papers I have used are called Prima Botanical and were free a while ago with the magazine, Simply Cards and Papercraft.  The sentiment stamp was free from the same magazine and is stamped onto a fussy-cut segment from the paper pad.

I cut the music from a Sizzix decorative strip – my Sizzix dies are rather neglected since I bought my Grand Calibur, but still have so much to offer.

Creative Moments challenge – a bit rock and roll

It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools

Ecclesistes 7:5

I have a really rock ‘n’ roll melting pot for today’s card.  The guitar digistamp is from Delicious Doodles – who are sponsoring the new challenge at Creative Moments.  The decorative 8″ x 8″ card base is from Kanban, as is the gold embossed frame.  The harlequin backimg paper is from Creative impressions washables range and I added a few peel-offs to emphasise the black and gold theme.  Finally, the sentiment is from DoCrafts Art Deco line.

I printed and fussy-cut the digi and highlighted certain elements with a metallic gold pen.

Guess what my son got for his birthday…

He got a bass guitar and this little rock dude from Kenny K is perfect for him.  The papers used to make up this card are from the aptly name Rock On range from Hot Off The Press and the letters are from Kanban.
