You Make Every Day Cooler – TMRC#101 and Announcement




Hi crafty friends!!

It’s time for the new challenge at The Male Room Challenge #101 The Color Blue ๐Ÿ™‚



Before I get into how I’ve created this card I have a very exciting announcement to make!

I am so honored and delighted to be joining The Male Room Challenge amazing Design Team!!! It feels like the best Christmas gift I could ever receive!!

For today’s special post and my first post as a The Male Room Challenge DT member I have created a card using my two big loves – color blue and snowboarding ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband and I are real snow bunnies and hit the slopes any chance we can get! When I saw the Ready, Set, Snow stamp set from MFT I had to get it and create a card for my hubby.


I started with coloring all the images from the stamp set – I stamped everything twice just in case I make a mistake in coloring.


I fussy cut all the images next (yes I made so many that I have enough for another card, or two).


I created the background blending distress inks and adding white splatter, then created the hills while my background was drying.


I stamped the sentiment on the bottom hill using 3 shades of blue ink to get an ombre effect. Now it was time to start assembling my card.


I added foam tape to some images and the frame die cut piece, and adhered the other pieces directly to the background creating lots of dimension.


Once my scene was complete I adhered it to the A2 size card base and my card was finished!
