As many of you have realised, I like football (soccer) and have been watching the World Cup matches lately. So it is only appropriate the my first card has a football theme. Going through my stash of papers I found some from Kanban which featured a football pitch. I cut it out, layered it onto black card and adhered it to the front of the card. I stamped this fab footballer onto white card and coloured him with Copics. I guess I should have used blue as I support Chelsea, but red works so much better! I finished the front with a simple sentiment stamped directly on the pitch. On the inside I've cut a mat layer of black and on the white panel I added a smaller football pitch with a greeting and a couple of loose balls!
I rather like this theme and have made a couple more cards. This next one features dominoes and has a very vintage feel.

I found this super vintage image of a game of dominoes in my stash. The topper started off grey and white, so to make it fit the theme, I rubbed over some Antique Linen Distress ink - I like the subtle shading. I layered the image onto some scrap patterned paper and then on some black card. I covered the card base with more design paper - this time featuring lots of books. I finished the card with a simple birthday sentiment. On the inside there is a mat of design paper and a panel of cream card for my message.
Finally, I've made a card for a teenager - probably for Ben - this time I've gone for a computer games feel. I used the colours from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#81.
Stamps: PTI - Boy Basics: Game On
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake, Strawberry Slush; Archival - Jet Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Grey
Compared to my first couple of cards, this one is small card, 5" × 3½". However, it's just the right size to showcase the games controller and inspirational sentiment. I stamped the background using a couple of other images from the set and used the second generation impressions so that the colour was a bit muted. I cut a mat layer of basic grey card and edged the white panel with a hint of pink to pick up the pink stamps on the card. The inside is blank for my own message.
For more inspirational project using the Games theme, check out the cards by the rest of the Design Team. That's all for now. See you soon.
