INAS #117 Fancy Folds

 Good Morning,

We have a new challenge at International Art & Soul Challenge #117 "Fancy Folds".

Warning - There are a lot of photos so you might want to grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me.

I know that fall isn't here yet but I have been in a fall mood.  We have had some chilly nights here in Maryland and it is really making me look forward to fall.

Here is my card:


Lots of folds!  Here is what it looks like folded up and ready to mail.




When I worked on it, I laid it out flat. The paper I used was Carta Bella "Fall Break" and misskate.com "Sweater Weather"



I used a stamp (that is one of my favorites) that I bought about 14 years ago. I used my square die from Spellbinders called Card Creator 8.




All of the things that I love about Autumn.  I love this time of year.

So yesterday was my birthday!  Whooo Hooo?  I can't believe I am 64 years old. How did that happen?  I feel like I am 18 but my body say no.  Anyway, all of the things that I use for crafts have been breaking.  First my computer, then my printer and my phone.  My husband gave me the best birthday present.  It is a new printer.  The thing that is cool about it is that you only have to change the ink every two years.




I put a bottle of the ink on top the printer so you could see how large it is. I am so excited!  Can't wait to use it.  My last printer printed 12x12 but I never used that feature.

INAS Challenge #115 "CAS - Clean & Simple"

 Good Morning,

We have a new challenge at International Art & Soul it is #115 "CAS - Clean & Simple".

I actually have trouble with CAS cards.  I always want to add ribbon or some sort of embellishments.  I think CAS is an art form, I need to practice more often.

Here is my card.




The stamps were free with the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.  They are called "Beyond the Woods".  I really love this stamp, I think it would be a great card for a male.  I colored it with my Copic Markers. Trying to color fur is always a challenge.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of A Craft Challenge - #17 - ATG

Sweet Stampin' - Feature an Animal

CAS on Sunday - Favorite Stamp

Creative Fingers - #213 - ATG

INAS #114 A Mode of Transport

 Good Morning My Friends,

Happy August!  Time just flies by doesn't it?

This fortnights challenge on International Art & Soul is a fun one #114 "A Mode of Transportation".  I had a wedding image with a couple driving off in a vehicle that was a coloring lesson on Kit and Clowder.  I was so confident that I could find it, I waited too long to look for it.  Guess what?  You got it, I couldn't find it!  Urrrrrgh!  The worst part is that I know I will find it as soon as I don't need it anymore!

I put this card together very quickly.


What do you think?  I have learned my lesson, I have two weeks until the next challenge, I won't wait until the last minute.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
