Second card for CCAYR March challenge


This is my design card for CCAYR March challenge: cute critters. Please click on the link to see the lovely cute designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used an Embossalicious 8 x 8 embossed folder to emboss a piece of Core-dinations Kraft-core card which I then sanded and rubbed randomly with Gilding Blush old gold, I stamped the lovely Penny Black caroling hedgehogs and lightly coloured with chameleon pens. I then die cut the image and a piece of pink/kraft Core-dinations kraft-core using a couple of X cut rectangle parenthesis dies, sanding this and then lightly gilding in parts.

Christmas cards all year round March challenge


This is my design card for CCAYR March challenge: cute critters. Please click on the link to see the lovely cute designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used the lovely 'chill day' Penny Black stamp, coloured with spectrum noir pens, with Art Institute glitter added and the silver filed ho ho hos.

The base of the easel was covered with a piece of Papermania paper from the cranberry & apple capsule (not actually Christmas paper, but I think it works). The spotted and striped piece across the base to act as a stopper are from my offcuts box.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March challenge


March has come round very quickly and here we are on the first day ready for a new challenge: Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March challenge. Please click on the link to find out what this is all about, get out your hoarded patterned paper or perhaps that new pack that you're eager to cut into and join in the challenge.

This prize will be won by the randomly chosen winner:

Back in time paper bloc by Joy crafts
36 sheets, size 15 x 15 cm
4 x 9 designs

For my design card I kept to the theme of 'time' using Docrafts Chronology papers, Papermania Urban Stamp Chronology curiosities and two of Sheena Douglass' textures stamps from sets from Crafter's Companion.  As I almost ran out of time to make anything for this challenge, I thought using these papers and stamps would be good.

The bottom left corner has been stamped with one of Sheena's texture stamps, as well as the FOREVER. The main stamped image is the Papermania Urban Stamp. For all of the stamping I used memento cottage ivy.

A true friend sticks close ...


... through good times and bad. That's the sentiment that's included in the delightful image from Deedee's digis 'forever friends' set which was the 'digi of the month' given for use in the February challenge (given to all those who participated in their January challenge).

I have to confess that I thought about this challenge the other day, but with everything that's going on, I forget again and am very grateful for Kathy's reminder this morning!

I found up some tiger print card that I ought ages and ages ago and used this for the background, with a piece of orange corrugated card and Paper Cellar black glittered strips down the side. I couldn't resist using another of the images from the set for the inside of the card, together with panels to give somewhere to write a personal message.

So this is for Deedee's February digi of the month challenge.

CHNC challenge 218: cut it up


For my CHNC challenge 218 that starts today I'm asking for something to be cut when making a Christmas creation - using scissors, die cutting, a guillotine/paper trimmer ... anything that cuts!

For my Design card I printed a lovely sheet by Carol Clarke which is available on Craftuprint volume 3, which will be given as one of the prizes this week, cutting out the pieces to decoupage the picture. I deliberately took the picture to try and show the decoupage, but when viewed face on, no shadows are seen.

Rudolph day


This is a quick Christmas card for Rudolph day using a decoupaged tree that has been around on my workspace since Christmas, waiting to be used. It was rescued from a gift card from M & S.

The strips of spotted card are snippets left from a previous card (they aren't crooked irl - it's the angle of the photo) and the poinsettia was from Hobbycraft.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 74


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday 74: anything goes with a twist ... add buttons. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For my card I used the Bugaboo Stamps baby fairy image (they are sponsoring the challenge), colouring with spectrum noir pens. I die cut the image with one of the Spellbinder's marvelous squares and used another of those dies to cut the background for the image, using an offcut of spotted paper that matched the background piece. The organza ribbon with gems was from Hobbycraft. Buttons from my box of many buttons!

Happy birthday, man!


This is a birthday card for one of my great nephews who is a Simpsons fan (hope he still is!) - it's his birthday today and I know he's received this,, so it's safe to blog.

The top and bottom are offcuts from a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle I bought recently (the beauty of an 8 x 8 folder is that there will be snippets over after making a 6 x 6 card). The sentiment strip across the middle is another offcut, with some washi tape added and the Simpsons picture from the internet.

This is my design card for the cheerful stamp pad challenge 105 week 2, where the theme  is 'B stands for bear'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and you can join in our challenge here.

For my card I've used Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet 'boo boo bear'. I coloured with my newly-acquired Chameleon pens (please be gentle as I've only just started using these). I tore around a perspex oval template and brushed the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink. The background sentiment papers are offcuts. A few fabric hearts were added as it looked too plain without them.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 68


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 68: anything goes with a twist ... monochrome. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our monochromatic challenge.

The challenge is being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine and I used their Emily's kimono image, which I coloured with just one alcohol pen - the Chameleon 'sky blue' - this is my first attempt at using one of the Chameleon pens that were delivered earlier this week. As with anything new, practice is needed ... so I will take take and try to get better with using them.

Papers are from the DCWV Far East collection (I was given an 8 x 8 pad ages and ages ago and I'm still using some up, including the scrap piece down the side, as well as the other bigger offcuts). I stamped on to the background paper using Stazon teal blue, but it doesn't show up too well here. I also stamped the fan on to a scrap piece of card that matched the background and cut around it. Washi tape was added either side of the scrap piece.

This is also for Inkspirational 76 where this photo was given:

Simply brown


Another card that I made a while ago, using a piece of card with text that I've had for ages wrapped round with some eyelash fibre (still have quite a lot of this kind of thing boxed away ... used to use it a lot, but it rarely sees the light of day now, which is a pity really). Die cut flowers from paper with text, edged with brown corduroy distress ink.

This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 73: anything goes with a twist ... use a die on your card. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

The background of the card was created with a wide band recycled from a Christmas cracker with glittered gold strips by Paper Cellar and corrugated card strips.

The poinsettias were from Hobbycraft.
