Here's My Creation...

Posted by Captain Crafter on 11:31 AM

Here's my creation, I'm glad I chose to do a tri-fold card because it's something I don't do too often. I really like my new scallop punch and I thought I would layer a few circles together, the effect is pretty cool. I hope everyone has enjoyed this challenge. Keep looking back for more.

I'm Back

Posted by Captain Crafter on 10:20 AM
I'm back from a mini vacation on Whidbey Island WA, USA. My family and I had a great time, it's such a wonderful place. Since I was there of course I had to find a scrapbook shop, the one I did find is the Creative Heart. The shop is very nicely set up and everything that I wanted was there and more, and the owner(Mary Anderson) and her staff are amazing. If your on Whitbey Island one day this place is a must do so you can fill up on some goodies. Now you are probably wondering what I got, well I not going to tell you. Just kidding!!!!! I bought a Marvy Giga Scallop Circle Punch, I stocked up on Basic Grey paper, I got some of the nicest brads I've ever seen, and some really pretty ribbon(Creative Heart has an excellent selection of ribbon). Also, Mary told me that Julie Ebersole pops in now and then.

Featured Stamper #22 CharmWarm

Posted by Captain Crafter on 10:08 PM in , ,

CharmWarm is this weeks Featured Stamper on SCS. The card I picked from her gallery has a nice simple layout and the colour combo she choose is fantastic. In keeping with this challenge I stayed very close to the layout, but I totally changed the colours for my project. I used Bordering Blue, Real Red and Not Quite Navy. The colours in the designer paper on my card matches so well with SU's. Also, the Bodacious Bouquet stamp set has a similar appearance to the Designer Paper.

I really find the FS Challenge to be so much fun to do, you should check it out.

Challenge #18

Posted by Captain Crafter on 8:51 PM

Here's this weeks sketch challenge. I'm adding some more elements for you to work out, don't worry I'm confident everyone will be able to make a wonderful card. Aside from the sketch you will have to use Cool Caribbean or Soft Sky, Certainly Celery, More Mustard, Basic Black, and any neutral card stock you like. If you don't have a particular colour just use one that is similar. Also, for bonus points try to use brads, ribbon and a paper piercer.

I hope you like it, now get creating. If you have a question you can post it or email me.

My First Posts To Ink-Stains....

Posted by Captain Crafter on 9:12 PM


I've just completed my first two uploads for Ink-Stains. The first is my entry for July's Card Contest. The requirements are to create a brightly coloured kids card. The second card is posted under the Thinking Of You category. My favorite feature of Ink-Stains is definitely having cards separated by occasion. Totally awesome!

Ink Stains

Posted by Captain Crafter on 7:02 PM
Today I received an e-mail from a member of Ink-Stains.com. It's a smaller Canadian based version of SplitCoastStampers - with that in mind I took a quick look at the site. It was so fantastic I registered as a member. It's not formatted like SCS, where cards are listed under the stamp sets , but instead under themes. i.e. Get Well, Birthday, Summer, Fall, Anniversary. I really like this, since now I'm able to get inspiration by looking up specific themes. The other great feature is the monthly card contest with prizes!

Take a look, you won't be disappointed.

New Catty!!!!

Posted by Captain Crafter on 11:48 AM
I was smiling from ear to ear when I got my new SU Catalogue from my good friend Carrie. Let me know what you like and just have to have. If you're like me its hard to know where to start because there's so many awesome things. I'm really happy I joined Carrie's Stamp Club which starts this month. Can't wait to place my first order! I'm considering the Garden Whimsy set and the new scallop punch, but that's it, gotta budget!! It's sooooooo hard though, I WANT IT ALL!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Man do I need a drink.

OK, I told you what I want, now it's your turn to tell all.

SCS Challenges

Posted by Captain Crafter on 11:28 AM

I used this card for two challenges, SC131 (Sketch Challenge) and WT120 (Ways to Use It Challenge). My friend gave me a set of designer paper (Dp) and I decided to use it for the challenges. Though the Dp isn't from Stampin' Up the colours in the paper match SU colours very well so I used Real Red, Not Quite Navy and Soft Sky card stock to match the Dp. As you can tell the layout is from the Sketch Challenge and for the Ways to Use It challenge I just had to use some ribbon.

Challenge #17, Here's My Creations.

Posted by Captain Crafter on 11:05 AM


I am very pleased, and thankful to see that many stampers are doing my challenges.

I did two cards for this weeks challenge #17, one is meant for a girls birthday and the second is a thinking of you card. In the first card I used Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery and Regal Rose card stock. The best thing I like about this card is the background stamp which I found at my local dollar store. Some of the daisies are darker from me using a Gelly Roll Glaze pen. You can't really tell from the picture, but the glaze does gives a shiny effect. Some of the other fun things I did to this card were using my white gel pen to add dots around the pink panther, and I used my round tab punch to make the brackets.

On my second card I decided to use the Trees Three set because its a set I really like, but never use as much as I would like to. I used Wild Wasabi, Kraft and Ivory card stock. Since I used the Trees Three set the card looked like it was meant to be a thinking of you card. I really like this card more and I think it turned out better than the first one.

I hope you enjoyed this challenge and look back soon for the next one.

Challenge #17

Posted by Captain Crafter on 2:34 PM
For this weeks challenge theme you must use stamps that portray a living thing, like animals, trees, people. The only living thing you can't portray on your card is flowers. Also, you can use whatever embellishments you want to use and the colours are up to you. Have fun and remember to post a link so we all can see your creations.
