Super Wednesday continued

---- Scroll Down for the other half of Wednesday's shenanigans! ----

So, onto 100.15:

Really pleased with this one. It's for my father-in-law as it's his birthday the week after next. I got the colour combination from the Colour Coach and I really like it so I'll use it again.

My FIL has a Jeep Wrangler (in Northern Ireland where they're really rare) and I originally thought this stamp was a Jeep Wrangler. Can you tell I am not a car person? Clearly I see now it's an ATV! Oh well. It's on the right lines. I used my SU! watercolour pencils & an Aqua Painter to colour the vehicle. Then I stamped off Crumb Cake to stamp the big paint splodge from Extreme Elements. The stars and sentiment are heat embossed in gold.

So sad mini library clips, Extreme Elements and Wonderfully Worn are all retiring! Sob.

100.15 Supplies: Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Versamark ink, Gold embossing powder, Marina Mist satin ribbon, Mini Library Clip, Watercolour paper, Watercolour Pencils, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Marina Mist card stock, Need for Speed, Wonderfully Worn, Extreme Elements, Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp sets.

100.16 is for my husband for his birthday. Possibly!

I realised again that I'd been neglecting the huge pile of DSP so thought I'd have a go at using some more. And ---- shock horror! ---- this is only SUM as I used a Technique Tuesday sentiment.

100.16 Supplies: Blueberry Crisp DSP, both SU! heart punches, Not Quite Navy cardstock, Versamark ink, Silver embossing powder, Dimensionals, Technique Tuesday stamp.

100.17 was my last card for today, one for my Dad for Father's Day:

My Dad is a Power Engineer and obsessed with planes. So I thought Need for Speed would come in handy again here!

100.17 Supplies:  Blueberry Crisp DSP, Versamark ink, White embossing powder, Dimensionals, Technique Tuesday blueprint stamp, retired Pacific Point ribbon, mini library clip, Basic Black, Pacific Point ink, SU! Need for Speed, Extreme Elements and Best Dad Ever stamp sets.

Phew! Even blogging this took ages. I am really pleased that I am 17 cards in 10 days in. The ideas are starting to come more easily now, but I know I need to use more DSP! I am going to try to make the next 10 cards using DSP. This is not a strength of mine so wish me luck!


  1. Great cards. My favorite being 100.16. I love the banners/flags and the heart cut out! Fabulous!

  2. 17 cards in 10 days and I haven't even started yet! 100.17 was my favorite. Masculine cards are so hard to do and that one is a cracker :)
