3 for 3

Today I have 3 cards for 3 challenges.

First is for Cardz 4 Guyz #50 – Get Well Wishes.

I used a stamp set from Art Impressions called ‘Doggy Kisses’ that I’ve had in my stash but never inked up – shock horror! I inked up the sausage dog and coloured him with my Stampin Blends. I then stamped the paw print to make my background panel.

Isn’t he just the cutest?

Second is a card for Seize the Birthday #196.

For my card, I chose the top left diagonal of birds, flowers, stencil. I used my Stampin Up ‘Free as a Bird’ stamp set which I coloured with my Stampin Blends and fussy cut out. I popped it up on a stencilled background, some ribbon and a sentiment banner.

Thirdly is a card for Cardz4Galz #127– Stamp on Kraft.

I saw a super cool card by Marlene McDeavitt where she masked off portions of her large stamp and used the gaps for her sentiment. I loved this idea and decided to give it a go for this challenge. I used a background stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Cottage Garden’ and the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Shenanigans’. I added a few white dots to the flower in the bottom corner so that it didn’t look too boring!

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Great cards Tristan. All are just lovely. Thanks for teaching us about masking off sections on a large stamp, the effect is amazing. I have that stamp also from the days when I was a member of Stamp Nation, so I might give it a try.

  2. First, the dachshund card is adorable! My favorite breed! Next, what a beautiful bird card and can’t believe you fussy cut this out so well. I have mustered up the nerve to attempt that yet even though I have that paper too. The dotted background is a nice backdrop. Thanks for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday!
