Mash Up

A complete mix of cards today - I seem to be starting cards but not actually finishing them atm...

The first two are for previous Daring Cardmakers' dares;

August's Colour Combo;

(I used the free graphic from here)

Kathy's Brilliant Beach Hut Dare;

(I used Waterlogue to create a watercolor picture)

and on to this week's dare;

This week it was my turn to set the dare and with the amount of loom bands decorating the front room whole house, I chose;


It doesn't have to be a loom band, hair bands, sewing elastic, rubber bands, all fine as long as somewhere on the card there is a stretch factor :)

I made loom band flowers to add to my card, and tied on the buttons with more bands;

and I also made this - the loom bands aren't on the card but I made the Hello Kitty Inspired bracelet to match;

TFL and don't forget to check out the DT's fantastic elastic cards on the Daring Cardmakers' blog!

Adventure Time!

Jared reached double figures and for his birthday, I made an Adventure Time Finn card for him. This has to be one of the simplest but cool cards ever! 

I used Blue Core'dinations and White and Beige Papermania cardstock, Docrafts Oval and Circle dies and a white pen. Uploading this one to the current Less is More challenge;

Loom Bands

We made loom bands for Jared's teachers this year...

Then a few more...

and some chalkboard tags...

and combined the two...

- some were made with the help of youtube, the beads are five sided mini fishtails and some took a lot of trial and error :)

3 of a kind

A set of baby thank you cards, the first inspired by the current challenge at the Case Study blog...

and all inspired by both Virginia's fabulous die cut challenge on the  Virginia's View blog and also the current Moxie Fab Wonderful Words challenge.

To MNake them, I used a watercolour background made in PS, Talk and MTF Itty Bitty Baby fonts, Basic Grey candy buttons, star brads from stash and a Clearly Besotted thanks die.
