Gina K. Release Challenge Fun

masculine card

Here are some cards I created for challenges posted at the party last night.  It was so fun – at one point we had 345 people there!  A ton of those were lurkers, I could tell but we had a lot of new people to the party and that’s always fun!!  Theresa’s challenge is to make a masculine card, which is getting easier with the new release of Special Fathers illustrated by Nina Brackett.  I chose to make a living room space with the clock on the wall, the digital papers to coordinate with the set and a framed art print for the wall.  My frame is made using the Woodgraining technique, it’s so easy & fun to see the magic happen with the swipe of a few stamp pads!!  The floor was made using the Summer Fabrics digital papers, which are freebie downloads at StampTV! 


My next card is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) for Cat’s Challenge!  These are fun to make (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 size).  I used Sporty Accessories, illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger to be used with a ton of her other sets like Just So Sporty which I used here (‘you’re a’ for the pennant sentiment) and her Tees sets (and more, you’ll soon see!) I love the high top sneakers in this set!  I also used the new Ribbon Stripes for the side stars.  The ribbon & brads are in the new Eclectic Summer StampTV kit

ATC turned card

Here is my full size card I put together, that is for the CAS15 Challenge on SCS – Black & White & one Bold Bright I chose Rocket Red by Gina K Designs {a great blue-red, which I LOVE more than and orange-red} which has a fun striped texture to it! 

If you have a chance to play this weekend for a chance to win a free stamp set valued at $24.95 or less, you need to upload your creation by Monday evening 7:00 p.m. CST. 

I have one more challenge card to share with you tomorrow, but that deserves a post all its own because it involves sharing my sweet, adorable niece Gabby with you!!

What fabulous cards! I love the combination of sets for the masculine card and the sneakers are just too cute! Nice designs and great job! I missed you not posting sneak peeks but understand it is nice to see family... :o)

Your idea to make the boat scene into a hanging photo is genius. I love it! And your sneaker ATC is awesome. I haven't made ATC in a long time. I may have to try one.

I have such a hard time coming up with masculine themed cards and yours is such a great inspiration! Love the Americana feel to your ATC too.
