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.
