Anchor Manly Card and Origami Polkadots Dress Card

I  like the theme from The Challenge ''Masculine Inspiration Challenge'' and like to use the sketch challenge too from CASE this Sketch. Here is the card I made:

 How I made my card, first I stamped the blue stripes stamp from Papertrey Ink with my Fiskars Stamp Press with blue ink.

Then I stamped the Anchor with red ink, cut it with Big Shot. For the bigger circle I smoshed the blue ink pad to the paper and I got the same blue paper like stripes one :)

I also using embossing folder for my white paper. Adhere all on the blue card stock and I can called my card finished. (sentiment and Anchor are from Lawn Fawn)

Challenges for my card are:

The Challenge #66

 CASE this Sketch #165:

 Cardz 4 Guys: Something Beginning with A (ANCHOR)

Word Art Wednesday  #224-#225: Anything Goes


For my second card I have seen a lovely tutorial from Origami Dress in YOUTUBE. This is my very first Origami Dress I ever made in my life :) next time I have to used not Designed Paper but Washi Paper cause it is more thick than Washi/Japanes Paper. 

I also used my old embossed lamp, to make the circle on my white paper:

Here is the Origami Dress and the Cardbase before assemble. Did you see if we embossed the circle self you can put where you like the big circle, the small and the middle one.

I love the result of this card hope you too :) it is CAS and it has only two layers and no embellishment only the washi tape in red polkadots.

  21. I just love the texture on these cards! Gorgeous!

  22. First, I love nautical themed cards! I've got this rope embossing folder, love it, must use it soon for nautical cards. Looking great with the stripes too and the red, white and blue color scheme is perfect for this theme.
    I really like how you made your own embossing 'folder' with different sized spots. The folded dress is beautiful and the tapes work so well on here. Great job!

  23. Both cards are lovely but the first card is amazing, that textured background is fabulous. Thank you for joining us for The Challenge.

  24. What fun cards! Love the nautical one with that great embossed background! Thanks so much for playing along at The Challenge with us this week!

  25. The are both fabulous, Monika ... the rope texture on the nautical one is brilliant ... such a great background for that cool anchor! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Challenge! Anita :)

  26. You are amazing. There really is a first time for everything-- I've never done an origami dress, either! (Maybe never will!) Very fun girly card. And then the anchor card is so well put-together: that rope folder is perfect with the nautical theme, and those stripes look like seersucker fabric-- very beachy!

  27. Love the origami/washi dress and the white polkadots! Wonderful card for our challenge this week. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week, Monika!

  28. Your Anchor card is wonderful, I love the total nautical look, the rope embossing is perfect. Thanks for joining us at Cardz 4 Guyz. Caz DT

    And your second card is absolutely gorgeous as well. The origami dress is so nice and I love the Washi tape use.
    Kind regards from your friend stempelfrida

  31. Love that rope embossing folder! Such a great background for the nautical themed card. Great interpretation of the inspiration picture too. The origami dress is so adorable! The polka dot washi and background are a great finishing touch.

  34. Oh, I love that wonderful embossing folder you have used for the masculine card, Monika!!!! Such a striking card with the rope texture!!!
    And you were so creative doing the circles on the second card - it looks great!!! The little origami dress is so sweet and pretty in pink with polka dots!!! So feminine!!!

  36. Is it.... could it be... Monika using designer paper!!!! Ahhhhh... What is this world coming to!!! And by the way I love this card.. The anchor is well suited for this nautical card and your tutorial is awesome!! Rob just got the mail today and was pleased to find a card from you!! I love the butterfly card... It looks even better in real life.. Thank you my friend!!

  37. Oh yeah I forgot to comment on that adorable pink dress card..So simple and so striking. I think what I like most is the sentiment. Again so simple and elegant.. just a wonderful card all together.
