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).
