Penny's challenge 297: anything goes


This is my card for Penny's challenge 297 - please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope to see your entries for the challenge.

I used the lovely A random fan snowman & company image, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured the image with spectrum noir alcohol pens and sprinkled on some Art Institute white sparkle glitter, having used a quickie glue pen in places. The image was cut and embossed with a cross hatch todo die - I then went round the edges of the embossing with the quickie glue pen and poured on some more glitter.

I used some lovely white pearlescent paper embossed with snowflakes for the background, using an A5 tent style card blank. I matted this on to a holographic red card cut with a larger die. Chipboard pieces were from Hobbycraft and flowers with pearls from Poundland.

Penny's challenge 296: anything goes


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 296: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we hope you will be able to join in our challenge.

I used the lovely Lacy Sunshine's Rory's over the rainbow image, kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pencils (made a change to use these instead of reaching automatically for alcohol pens). The image was cut with a todo art deco die.

I found a piece of rainbow paper for the background - this wasn't quite big enough for the card blank so I cut it in two and used the piece of spotted ribbon to fill the gap. Greeting and gems from stash.

CHNC challenge 299: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 299 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge.

I used the lovely Robyn's Fetish Paul Penguin sleighing kindly supplied by them as one of this week's sponsors. I apologise for the poor colouring ... I am trying out a new prescription of contact lenses ... I'm going back to the opticians in the morning and am hoping to revert to what I was wearing before because with these ones I couldn't see the lines clear enough to keep within them! I will adjust the colouring in once I can see better!  The colouring was done with spectrum noir pens. Papers are from my Christmas offcuts box and poinsettia from Hobbycraft.

Penny's challenge 295: anything goes


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 295. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries.

I used a pre-coloured image from Melonheadz, one of this week's sponsors of the challenge, adding the sentiment on computer before printing.

I used an offcut piece of 'baby' paper for the background on to which I layered an offcut piece of lovely K & Co embossed vellum, adding some matching pieces from K & Co. In real life you can see through the vellum a bit better than in the photo.

CHNC challenge 298: colour: yellow


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 298: colour: yellow. It doesn't seem possible that it's getting quite near to Christmas in the sense that crafters need time if they are going to get cards done, so, if you haven't started yet, now might be a good time. Please click on the challenge link and join in the fun.

For my card I used a Xmas girl present image from Bugaboo Stamps, colouring digitally in Microsoft Paint and printing out and backing with the reverse side of the double sided K & Co paper used also for the background. A strip of corrugated card, the lovely felt 3D bells from Hobbycraft and a circle sentiment.

This is my design creation for More mixed media challenge for September: anything goes + optional brown. Please click on the link to see the wonderful creations of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge with your mixed media crafting.

I then daubed fingerprints in places and added the embellishments. I didn't have an appropriate photo, so I thought the birdie circle would be appropriate.

Background paper is 7 gypsies 'adore' from collections for the journey on to which was matted a large label shape from Websters Pages. I knew that the recipient liked feathers on cards, so I added the purple one topped with a foiled todo rose (kindly sent with others from a todo crafting friend), adding the two sentiments.

A bit more time to craft challenge 27: anything goes


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 27 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the time and we hope you will join in our challenge.

This was a commissioned card - I was told that the recipient loves shoes and handbags, so I used a couple of Lozzy's mixed media papers on to which I matted a piece of The English Paper company paper purchased long ago. I cut out the shoes using the tattered lace 'hot off the catwalk delicate shoe die, having printed the paper twice so I could produce a left and right shoe.

The strip of squares across the bottom was cut from a 12 x 12 American crafts 'the color of memories' paper, on to which were added the glittery boots and handbags bought ages ago from Poundland. I added pearly flowers to the shoes and to the sentiment oval.

 I used another print of the paper to decorate the inside of the card:

Penny's challenge 293


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 293: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we hope to see your entries for the challenge.

I used the lovely Penelope digi kindly supplied by Oddball Stamps as a sponsor of the challenge, colouring with spectrum noir pens and die cutting with an X cut parenthesis rectangular die, using a larger one to cut a scrap piece of paper (magazine freebie) for the background. The main background paper is another offcut from a magazine freebie, on to which I added a couple of ribbons and Hobbycraft flowers.
