Simon’s Triple Challenge – Number 2 (real post this time)

March 21, 2008 at 12:22 am (Challenge, Hidden Depths, Moo, Skinny) (, , , , , )

Right, having spent 2 days getting it how I wanted, I have to start again!!

I have made a slight change to the challenge: there will still be three themes – but you will get to choose which of the themes you want to use.

The projects stay the same:

 Moo Cards

Skinny Cards

Hidden Depths

(Check out the first challenge for details)

The themes this week all begin with the letter P





You can explore these with whatever techniques and products you have.

Here are my samples:

Moo Cards – Punctuation

Punctuation Moos

The bases of these were scraps of SEI papers from other projects.  I used CACTUS PINK chipboard for the embellishments.  Two are finished with pearly embossing powder, the question mark is ink followed by Glossy Accents.  All very simple to do and a great way to use up scraps.

Skinny Cards – Presents and Passion

Skinny - Presents

The Present skinny is a piece of purple/red card stock with an overall stamped design to look like wrapping paper.  I then tied some thin ribbon and attached a stamped tag – simple – but effective – I hope. 

Skinny - Passion

The Passion skinny is Parisian Passion.  I stamped a couple of images from a Crafty Individuals stamp.  The card is embellished with torn strips of paper, a brad and a length of velvet ribbon.  Quite rich and passionate – I thought!

Hidden Depths – Purple Passion

Outside of Passion HD

Another bit of thrifty crafting.  I cut the base from the cover of my SEI pink and purple pad and altered the outside with Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick distress inks.  I added a metallic Prima flower for texture.

Inside of Passion HD

The inside is three panels of UTEE over inks – the middle panel has a Craft Individuals dragonfly stamp and the right hand panel has a Drama Queen tag.

Something a bit different.

I hope you enjoy playing and look forward to seeing the results

Moo Challenge – Number 1

March 6, 2008 at 11:55 pm (Challenge, Moo) (, , )

What is a Moo Card?

 A Moo card is something similar to an ATC but a rather different size:  you cut your base to 70mm x 28mm and decorate from there.

 There are no restrictions as to how you can decorate it – but like ATCs they are to be given or swapped – never sold.

The first challenge is one that might get you thinking:


Here are my two samples:

 Moo 1

The first is a skull (Stamp by Inkadinkadoo) which I stamped using black Staz-on and decorated using Glossy Accents and various glitters.   The background is DCWV cardstock, edged with gold ink.  Scraps of 7 Gypsies papers are stuck on and then gems added for some Piratical bling (yes – Pirates of the CARIBBEAN!!)

  Moo 1

The second was inspired by the vivid flowers you see on tropical islands – various Prima flowers were stuck on using brads or gems as centres.  I  finished off with some doodling!

I hope you enjoy this challenge and will come back in a fortnight for the next one and please post a comment with a link to images of what you have created!
