Loads Of Love Card - For A male

 Hi everyone, hope it’s all going well with you. Today I made my last card as GDT at Corrosive Challenge blog.
The theme is For the Guys
My mother asked me to make her a card for my dad.
So here it is:

It is a Masculine card with a difference and I really like it!

I used the sketch form Cards and Things Challenges.

I used a digital stamp from Sew Many Stamps and coloured it with the following Promarkers:
Cool Grey 1 – for the Donkey’s body
Blush – for inside the Donkey’s ears
Henna – for the two ropes around its body
Sandstone – for the wagon
Sky blue – for the ropes holding the wagon to the Donkey
Dusky Pink – for the wheel
Berry Red, Carmine and Rose Pink – for the hearts in the wagon

I punched hearts out of red paper, I gave it a glaze with “Royal Coat Dimensional Magic” and then glittered it with red glitter.

I wrote, “Loads of Love” as the sentiment on the card.
Since the Donkey is pulling a wagon full of hearts, I thought it will fit nicely!

My mother helped me to make a bow out of two ribbons.

Please hop over to Corrosive Challenge and take a look at the other DT’s cards and check out the prize!

Thank You Card – For A Male

Hi everyone hope you’re doing well.
Today I would like to show you a thank-you card that CJ asked me to make for a friend of his.
When CJ turned 16 on the 24th of August, a friend gave him a one year subscription for the magazine, “Popular Mechanics”!
CJ’s friend, uncle Wiaan also loves horses and rides on the same farm as CJ. He always helps CJ. So CJ asked me to make him a Thank You Card.

Here is my card
I made photos corners out of red paper and stuck it in the card’s corners.
I also put a strip of ribbon behind the stamp.

I used one of my Whiff Of Joy Stamps called “Henry Mouse with large teacup” since he is just so cute!
My mother helped me to stamp this stamp so that you don’t see the Christmas leaves on the teacup.
Here is how:
1. Inked the stamp
2. Then cut double sided tape to fit over the leaves and stuck it onto the stamp over the leaves;
3. Stamp the stamp on your paper and that should do the trick!

I coloured it with the following Promarkers:
Sandston – for little Henry’s body
Blush and Dusky Pink – for his tummy, ears and tail
Henna – for the chair Henry is standing on and the Hot chocolate
Rose Pink – For the marshmallows
Berry Red – for the teacup
Cool Gray 1 – for the steam coming out of the teacup and the shadow around the stamp

I wrote a sentiment, “Sweet Thanks”, since the mouse throws marshmallows into the hot chocolate.
I stuck it on pop-ups and placed it in the bottom, right hand corner.

I stuck photo turners in the corners of the square.
I also took part in the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz -  Hot, Hot, Hot
Lily Of The Valley - go dotty with circles
Cooking It Up With Katie - Make it for a Boy (or something boyish) Add some Checks/Gingham/Plaid
Finish with a touch or two of Brown
Creative Belli - round and metal (brads, metal rimmed tags, etc)
Rosie D's - one for the boys
Shabby Tea Room - a little bit of metal
My Partner in Crafting Crime – food and drinks

The theme for this week’s challenge is “drinks”
So here is my card:
I used some very beautiful paper for this card.

And used the following sketch for it.
The sketch is from Stamp With Fun and I really like it!

I used one of my favourite stamps from my Whiff Of Joy collection called: Willow with Champagne.

I coloured her with the following Promarkers:
Henna – For her hair
Blush and Dusky pink – for her skin
Carmine – for her dress
Apple – for the ribbon around her waist and bracelet around her arm
Rose pink – for her shoes and inside of her dress
Dusky pink – for the Champagne
Cool Grey 1 – For around the stamp
I used a white gel pen to draw lines on the stamp for a three dimensional effect.

I stuck two flowers on top of each other and stuck them in the bottom right corner.
I also added pearls in the corners and at the end of the ribbons.

Gift Bag for CJ’s birthday

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well!
Today I want to show you a gift bag I made for my brother for his 16th birthday on Tuesday the 17th of August.
This week Stampin For the Weekend’s theme is Anything goes!
Isn’t that easy!
We’re being sponsored by Sir Stampalot
I decided to make a gift bag for CJ.

I found the tutorial here.

And the back, with a pocket and a tag with a note in.

I used a stamp called Giddy Up, one of my Sugar Nellie stamps.
I coloured it with the following Promarkers:

Sandstone – for the hat, horse and pants
Dusk Pink – for the skin
Sky blue – for the top
Gold – for the patches
Berry red – for the hat band, buckle and flowers on the ground
Henna – for the hair, shoes, rope and gloves
Forrest green – for the grass
Yellow – for the flowers
Cool grey 1 – for a shadow around the stamp
Here I made a knot with the two ribbons, red and blue.

I coloured three identical stamps.
The first I stuck at the front of the card, from the second stamp I cut out the top of the boy with my circle colossal and from the third stamp I cut out the horse with my circle colossal.
The little boy I put on pop ups and stuck on the back pocket, with a sentiment: “Happy Birthday, CJ”.
I also repeated the red and blue ribbon, with a knot, on the pocket.
The horse I stuck on the tag.

We had such a fun day on CJ’s Birthday.

I baked CJ a Strawberry Bavarian Cake from my Baking book.

Me and CJ

It was delicious!

My mother and CJ

CJ loves horses. He has been doing horse riding for 5 years and is now riding a very special horse for the owner of a Riding School. CJ does not ride the school horses at the farm, since CJ is now too experienced.
The horse he is riding is a merry called ‘Something About Mary’.
She is a beautiful white horse and he loves riding and training her!

But CJ also loves his brothers!

CJ playing with David and Daniel.

I also baked CJ Croissants for breakfast on his birthday.

It was a pile of Croissants! Remember, we are a large family of ten!

By the end of last year, CJ won 3 small rockets as a price for answering 12 out of 12 Science questions correctly, read more here.
So in the afternoon we went to CJ’s horse riding school and launched two rockets.
CJ exploded the third engine while making it!
Some fun pictures of the afternoon:
We all went out to the field on a Quad Bike.

Andrew and David were very exited!

The rockets

And up it went and with a huge speed came down to the ground!
The parachute failed!
It is a tradition in our home, when you are older than 7, to go out for dinner with our parents, on our birthdays.
Josua’s birthday is on the 24th of August, so my parents took them for dinner together.

I just love these pictures!

Take a look at the amazing milkshake they had for dessert!!

Although CJ teases me a lot and makes me mad……….I love him as my brother!!

Have a blessed weekend

A “Gift Card Purse” for Corrosive Challenge Blog

Hi everyone, happy Sunday!
Today I would like to show you a purse I made for ‘Corrosive Challenge Blog.’
The theme for this week’s challenge is ‘Faux Techniques’, and I made a faux Leather purse. This was a real challenge!

I made stitches all around the purse to make it look more real.
This purse is made with brown and pink basil card stock.
How did I make it look like leather?

1. I embossed it with my Cuttle Bug

2. I inked the complete piece of embossed paper with Versa Mark ink.

3. Sprinkled the embossed card with clear embossing powder.

4. Heat the piece of paper covered with the embossing powder, till it becomes clear and shiny. Be careful not to burn your fingers!
And there you are!

The purse flap I made out of pink card stock and dry embossed it with a different pattern.
I stuck some little pearls in on the edges of the pink heat embossed paper, and then I took a big brad and stuck a pearl on top.

I also put a small magnet on the inside, so when it closes, the bottom part of the brad sticks to the magnet and keeps the purse closed.

My mother like to sometimes surprise me with card making embellishments.
This ribbon with buckle and flower was one, and it fitted perfectly!

This is the inside of the purse.

I stuck photo corners on the inside, the size if a Gift card voucher, so I can put a gift voucher in the card as a Birthday gift.
Would you like to take part in this Faux technique challenge?
Hop over to Corrosive Challenge and get some more inspiration from the other DT cards!

With this card I took part in the following challenges:

2 Sisters - stitching (faux or real)
Craftalicious -pearls and swirls
Wild Orchid Challenge - one for the girls

Have a blessed week
