CHNC challenge 225: something beginning with F


For my CHNC challenge 225 I'm looking for you to use or show something beginning with F -  e.g. flurries (of snow), flourishes, flowers, faith, funny, Father Christmas, figgy pudding ... or, if you are stuck, just FESTIVE!! - I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too. If you are stuck you can get some more ideas here.

I've made two cards using die cuts created on my Scan n Cut, using svg files from SVG Attic (one of the sponsors), changing this to the correct format for the SnC using 'canvas'.  The file I used is called winter flurries - so I have used at least two words beginning with F ... flurries and flourishes (perhaps even 'flake' as in 'snow flake'  ...  as well, of course, as FESTIVE!

I'm also adding these cards for my Patterned Paper April challenge - if you haven't discovered that yet, please take a look and join in the challenge.

For the first card the background is Bo Bunny tis the season carol:


For the second card I used My Mind's Eye lost and found Christmas paper, using a couple of glittered strips from the reverse side of the paper:

Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 76


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 76: anything goes with a twist ... use a die or punch. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut out The Stamping Boutique image, Audrey with a cupcake, kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. This had been coloured with Chameleon pens. The die cut was mounted on a piece of Pink Petticoat vintage rose paper. The background paper and the pink and white flower panel offcut are from the Pink Petticoat wild blossoms collection. Washi tape from Paperchase (a bargain buy) and flowers from Hobbycraft.

Crafting musketeers challenge 24


I am in team B on the Crafting musketeers DT and it's our turn mid-month to share some inspiration for April's challenge 24: it's a man's world. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by others in team B and join in our challenge here.

Having bought my Scan n Cut a while ago and had initial success with a few simple tasks, I decided this week to make an effort to use it more, so my design card has been created with everything cut on the SnC, mounted on to a black card blank. The textured paper with random text on it is (I think) DCWV and all pieces of black and grey card are scraps - the beauty of the SnC is being able to scan in pieces of card and position items for cutting so it's possible to use up scraps.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 81


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 81: anything goes with a twist ... add some pearls. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I've used Lacy Sunshine '1920s winter Abby'. kindly supplied by the sponsor. The centre panel of card is an offcut of some that I've had for a long time - much more pearly looking irl. The top and bottom pieces are offcut pearlescent pieces run through an embossing folder. Flowers are from Flourish with a bling (I won some from them), which have those lovely pearl buttons in the centres of the delicate chiffon petals.

Cheerful stamp pad challenge 109


The Cheerful stamp pad challenge 109 for this fortnight is 'zentangle' - please click on the challenge link to see the lovely zentangled designs of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries.

For my design card I created the background by brushing a Spectrum Noir aqua tint and splattering with water. The moon image is Sweet Pea Stamps  Courtney Mcanshs 'to the moon and back' digital, kindly provided by the challenge sponsor. This image  already had an element of zentangle, but I added to it and also decorated around the edges of the background before mounting on to a black card blank.

This is what the image looked like before I added some more zentangle:

Easter daffodils


I love daffodils - they are such a sign of spring and so are the little chicks, so I thought they would look good together on this 5 x 7 yellow card blank. The chicks paper is an offcut snippet from a piece of PDA paper and the daffodil topper is Kanban. Sentiment generated on the Dymo letratag. A couple of pieces of gold foil strips (Paper Cellar) either side of the chicks paper (although it doesn't look gold here).

Happy Easter


Another Easter card made a couple of weeks ago using some Kanban background card with eggs, stripes of floral card (can't remember where it came from) - these strips had folds, but I covered them with the felt eggs. Sentiment panel is also Kanban (from quite a long time ago).

CHNC challenge 224: add some texture


For my CHNC challenge 224, I'm asking to see some texture on your Christmas designs - it might be some embossing, fabric, flowers, lace ... anything that provides some texture - I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too.

For my card I used an embossing folder run through the eBosser to texture some red mirror card, matted this on to a green card blank and added a picture from a set I bought long ago, a couple of Hobbycraft poinsettias on other flowers and some gold ribbon - a few different textures.

Completely Christmas 58


This is my design card for Completely Christmas 58: anything goes with a twist ... add a touch of gold. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I've used Lacy Sunshine 1920s winter Abby, kindly supplied by the sponsor. I coloured with chameleon pens and used a quickie glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter for the fur. The background on the left was achieved with an offcut of embossed mirror card (using budding vine embossing folder), wrapped with a piece of glittered ribbon, with an offcut of paper on the right. Another piece of mirror card from an offcut box was used to back the image. Flowers were from Hooked on Craft (part of a prize I won a long time ago).

I think I went a bit over the top with all the gold ... the challenge only actually asks for 'a touch of gold' - lol!!

The theme for my CHNC challenge 224 this week is 'add some texture', so I'm showing this card there as well and will be encouraging those who enter there to also enter Completely Christmas 58.

Let's Craft and Create challenge 100


I am delighted to say that I was invited to join the DT at Let's Craft and Create.

Challenges have re-commenced with some original DT members and some new ones, including me!

This month's challenge 100 is 'Seasonal Flowers'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and, of course, we would love to see your entries.

The prize for this challenge is a Kanban mini black and white kit with die cuts, A4 pearl papers, foiled sentiments and peel offs ...


When thinking of what to feature on my card, I had some bunches of daffodils that were in bud and enjoyed seeing them open up, displaying their lovely bright and cheery colour, so I decided to base my card around that flower.

I used 'daffolil oval' Funstamps inked with versamark and heat embossed with WOW metallic gold rich super fine embossing powder.  I coloured with a mixture of spectrum noir and chameleon pens. The stamp does include a frame around the oval with the word Daffodil, but I decided to cut around and mount this on to an oval of paper torn around a perspex template. Papers are K & Co Daffodil (a 6 x 6 pad that I've had for years!), cutting a piece from one paper to mount in the bottom corner over  the strip with Papermania Lemon Sorbet ribbon and bow in the centre.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 56


This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 56: blue and silver. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your blue and silver Christmas designs.

The card blank is a deep blue stardream shimmery card, on to which I've matted silver and deep blue mirror card. The Inkadinkadoo angel stamp is one of my favourite Christmas ones - I inked it with versamark and stamped on to the piece of deep blue mirror card, heat embossing with detail silver powder. The matt silver embossed panel was made with a Craftwell embossing folder run through the eBosser. The little panel used for the Seasons Greetings sentiment was also from that A4 folder and backed with a snippet of blue mirror card that had been embossed with another folder (it was an old snippet and I can't remember which folder was used).
