http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCMay16_Sports_ECDHappyBirthday_EnjoyYourDay.html

So I needed a card for a guy... and since I know he's an avid sports fan - since he yaks about it all the time - luckily I have a hearing disability ROFL... anyway, thought I'd make something sporty, especially when I came across all these silhouette type images of sports people. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

MC May/16 - One Sheet Card - ECD Happy Birthday , Friend - Enjoy Your Day

yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCMay16_OneSheetCard_ECDHappyBirthday,Friend_EnjoyYourDay.html

I'll be teaching a class for this "one sheet" card structure. It's designed from a basic fold structure which I altered to create mine. Loving the results. If you want to learn how to, then join me at the next Paper Pastimes Pop Up shop the weekend of July 23 - 24, 2016 here in Calgary, Alberta. More info as to exactly what time I'll be teaching it coming soon.

The 1st batch I designed was calligraphically inclined (see pics below), but due to time constraints, we've eliminated the calligraphy section, so the class will consist of the card structure and creating the card with some embellishments. I'll probably do a bit of demoing while I'm there, showing how I created the lettering on the prototype cards...

Anyway, you can see all the details and descriptions and lots more views by clicking on any card image or click HERE for the "Happy Birthday My Friend" card or the Prototype cards HERE. Enjoy

MC May/16 - Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, All You Have to Do is Call


As soon as I got the newest "Season's" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs A Way With Words, designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available on Quietfire Design HERE), I knew I had to do this song quote... It was one of those that just kept spinning around in my head, and still is... BIG GRIN. These dies should be available later on this month.

I side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h), layered a piece of Curious Metallic "Chocolate" cardstock (paper-garden.ca) leaving a 1/8" border all around.

Die cut my seasons winter from a white coral reef cardstock; spring from green Colour Burst decorated cardstock; summer from alcohol ink on glossy cardstock paper. Layered them on to the shadow layer of the words using the outer edge of the die to fussy cut the chocolate cardstock. Adhered a piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs Through The Lens "Stone" cardstock onto the front, then the shadow layered words.

eCut the word "Fall" one of Suzanne's designs on the Silhouette online store "soccer/football" using the letters to spell "fall" cut from white cardstock and colored with Distress pads in yellows and oranges, then embossed with clear UTEE.

Die cut the telephone (Tim's movers and Shapers die) from a gold metallic cardstock.

Die cut the text letters (Elizabeth Craft Designs Upper Case & Lower Case Alphabets) from white cardstock on the front and black cardstock on the inside.

Die cut the word "Friend" another Elizabeth craft Designs die from Suzanne (also available on Quietfire Design HERE), this time cut from the stone cardstock and cutting off the "s".

Stamped the "Robin 2 - Flower Branch" (Bianca Petroschi) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, then colored with Prisma colored pencils.

MC Apr/16 - Lady Slipper - Miss You Mom

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCApr16_LadySlipper_MissYouMom.html

I received some beautiful sample cardstock (pearlized, plain and textured) from Paper Gardens in Ontario. It was so nice and since they are having free shipping with orders over $50 (limited time offer), I decided to order a bunch more BIG GRIN. The pearlized that I tried, die cut beautifully. She also invited me to submit a mother's day card to her challenge. I really like the way this card turned out.

I also got several new stamps from Power Poppy and wanted to use the "Orchids Rock" set with the Lady Slipper. I'm partial to them since they grew wild in PEI.

I'm using an eCut file "Mom - Rose - Ornament" from Suzanne at Quietfire Design, available on the Silhouette onLine store. And using a sentiment stamp ("In A Perfect World" 4pce set) from Quietfire Design.
