Punches & Diecuts at Tuesday Throwdown

Hello!  I'm so glad you stopped by.  Today at Tuesday Throwdown our new challenge is sponsored by the awesome Bugaboo Stamps and our theme is Punches  and/or Diecuts.

I've used both on my card:


I've used our sponsor's sweet image "Flower Bird", a circle doilie die from Spellbinders, a fern die and a flower die that are Cricut cuts and a border punch from Fiskars.

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the background paper is from K & Co.

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll join us!

Embossed Copper

Hello!  Last time it was Team A's turn to post on Tuesday Throwdown, I was so covered up with life that I had to skip.  So it seems like it's been months since I've posted!

This week our sponsor is
 http://digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com/ and our challenge theme is "Add Metal".

So here's my take with our sponsor's image "Steampunk Tasha":


I've had a roll of thin copper sheeting for something like forever and finally thought this would be a fun way to use some of it.  The diecuts were all in my spare parts box (sweet!).  The black doilie is a Spellbinder's die, the white piece on it is the negative cut from a Cricut "ready to make" card and the green label is a Cricut label cut in half.  My image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers then fussy cut and the paper is a piece from a Paper Studio sheet.  The "hello" stamp is from Winnie & Walter's "The Big, the Bold and the Happy" set. 

This was really a fun card to make and I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other great projects over at Tuesday Throwdown!

Black and White + One

Oh my gosh!  It just dawned on me today that I never got my post up for the past Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!  Now that it's almost over, here's my card!

Our theme is "Black and White with one other color" and our sponsor is MHK Designs.  I used digi paper, rocker image and sentiment all provided by our sponsor.   

Bg apology to my teammates at Tuesday Throwdown for being so neglectful!

One Layer Cards are Kinda Hard?

This week's challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is "One Layer" and we are sponsored by  

I had a much harder time with this challenge than I thought I would.  "One Layer" sounds so easy!  But once I printed out my image, I thought "Now what???"  I wanted to use ribbon or diecuts or something! 


So I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page border punch and a little glitter and called it good.  So I guess it really is easy, after all!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week and join us!

Creative Borders at Tuesday Throwdown

Good Morning!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by 
and our theme is "Creative Borders".  I've used a sweet stamp set from our sponsor called "Friends and Family" for my card.


I really like this stamp set, it's pretty versatile.  The background paper is a freebie from "Cardmaking and Papercrafting" magazine.  and my "Creative Border" is a cute picket fence from Cricut's Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge on Design Studio Access.  To finish it off I added a little butterfly sticker and set some gems with my Gemsetter from Imaginisc that I haven't used in years!  It was fun to pull that back out and remind myself of the fun tool I have.  (Not that I'm hoarding tools and supplies, or anything like that!)  lol

Thanks for stopping by.  Come on over to Tuesday Throwdown and check out all the great projects there, then join us!

You Still Rock!

This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by !  And our theme is "For the Men".  I've used our sponsor's image called "Metal Mick" to make my card.

                             

This was such a fun image to color!  I used my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut the image.  I've used pop dots to  mount it onto a circle which I wrote and cut with my Cricut Explore and a Cra-Z-Art marker.   The blue strip is embossed with a music "M-Bossibilities" embossing folder from Sizzix, run through my Cuttlebug.  The background paper is some really old scrap I have had forever. 

This is a pretty simple, but fun card.  I hope you like it, too!  Be sure to stop by Tuesday Throwdown to check out all the great DT examples and then join in the fun! See you there!
