For the Boys


Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  I had 3 nice days off, so it was great!

Today is my DT post for Die Cuttin' Divas, and this week's theme is
 "All About the Boys"
   (masculine card)  

I pulled out my Father's Day Cricut cartridge, and wanted to use this boat.  Making this card made me wish I had been out on a boat over the weekend.  It certainly looks inviting, and the weather was beautiful here in Maryland.

Aside from blue, white, yellow, orange, and red cardstock, I used papers from DCWV Photo Stack 2, which made it easier for me to make the sky, land and water effect I was looking for. I used foam tape to give the waves some depth.

The sun is made with My Creative Time Build a Banner Kit and the sentiment is from one of the new stamp sets by Craftin Desert Divas, called Summer Lovin'.

We hope you'll join in the challenge this week, and make something masculine.  Be sure to use a die cut in your creation and link your post to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog site.

We look forward to seeing your creations!

New Challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas

This week's challenge...
Wobble it or add dimension

I don't have any wobbles, so I added foam squares to my card to pop up the sentiment and the banner.

Now don't tell, but this is for my nephew, Eric, for his upcoming birthday! 

I used My Creative Times dies and stamps:
Fun Ticket stamps
Ticket dies
Build a Banner kit
Lowercase fun dies
Stitched 4x6 journal die

Hope you'll join in the challenge this week.  Make a card, layout, or project using a Wobble.  But if you don't have a wobble, then add dimension to your creation.  Link your post back to the Die Cuttin' Divas web site.

Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.

Sketch Challenge

Time for a 
Sketch Challenge at
Die Cuttin' Divas!

This is the card I made.

Here's the sketch.

As you can see, I decided to turn the sketch for my card so I could use the car die cut on it.  The car is from the Cricut Father's Day cartridge.  I used silver metallic paper for the wheels and grill, so it was a little hard to photograph. 

We hope you'll join the challenge this week using the sketch shown above.  Be sure to use a die cut too, and link your post back to Die Cuttin' Divas.

I'd like to link to these challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes
Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - anything goes
DL Art May Linky Party - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!
