Crafting musketeers challenge 25: use a die cut


It's the turn of team B to show their designs for mid-month inspiration for Crafting Musketeers challenge 25. Please have a look at the rest of the team's lovely designs by clicking on the link and you can join in the challenge here.

I used some die cut toppers from The Hobby House (they are sponsoring the challenge) called 'here comes summer'. I matted these on to die cut shapes that I edged with a spectrum noir pen.

For my design card I thought it would make a change to use a twister card, decorating it with pieces of magazine freebie papers and some scrap pieces of spotty card.

CHNC challenge 229: use some of your favourite things


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 229 - this week I'm simply asking you to use some of your favourite things when you make your Christmas creation - easy peasy ... and, like me, you might then be singing, 'These are a few of my favourite things ...' Hope you can join in the challenge.

For my card I've used quite a few of my favourite things - dry embossing (embossing folder run through the eBosser), patterned paper, particularly these offcuts of My Mind's Eye lost and found Christmas, one of my favourite Christmas stamps by Penny Black, 'chill day', stamping with versafine onyx black and heat embossing with detail black powder, flowers, glitter, alcohol pens (spectrum noir) ... these are just a few of my favourite things.

The glitter on Santa's clothes is from Stamps by Chloe (quite a chunky glitter) and I used some dots of glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter for snowflakes. Robins and poinsettias from Hobbycraft.
