CHNC challenge 198: anything round

I haven't blogged much this week, but that hasn't been because I haven't been crafting, it's because I've been mega crafting in preparation for a sale today to raise money for SAT-7. So I'll be missing for a while today, but back later.

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 198 where I am asking to see something round. I hope you will join in. You can use something round, perhaps buttons, brads - doesn't have to be a shaped card.

I created this scalloped circular card using an svg file from Birds Cards converted to use with the Scan n Cut with their canvas facility. This was cut on the Scan n Cut using DCWV textured cardstock.

The images are Bugaboo Stamps winter circle sentiments - chimney, printing this in four different sizes and then scanning and cutting with the Scan n Cut, colouring the middle one with spectrum noir pens. I just layered these rather than raising up to decoupage, conscious of postage cost being more with thicker cards.


As you can see I wasn't entirely accurate with sticking the circles on the front because you can see bits when opening the card - must remember to check this when I do similar cards.

Completely Christmas challenge 33: poinsettias


Today's Completely Christmas 33 is all about poinsettias - please click 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 design card I used Sparkle n Sprinkle poinsettia kindly given by the sponsor of the challenge. I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint and then made six different sizes in Microsoft Publisher. I then scanned with my Scan n Cut and then cut them all (much, much quicker than cutting by hand!). I used a couple of spectrum noir pens to go round the edges to give a bit more definition. The washi tapes and ribbon were matted on to a piece of DCWV textured cardstock.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 50: anything goes with stripes


This is my design card for this week's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 50: anything goes with stripes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the other team members and join in our challenge.

I used the digital image Bugaboo Stamps Scarlette - coffee oclock digitally blotting out the left side of the image and digitally adding some marshmallows into the cocoa. I have no idea where the saying came from - it was among my bits and pieces and I thought it was about time I used it. This, the image and the strip down the left side were coloured with spectrum noir pens. The striped papers are from my offcuts box.
