A bit more time to craft January challenge


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft January challenge 11 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge.

I've used 'peachy pink fairy' digi by Ching Chou Kuik colouring with spectrum noir pens., with Art Institute glitter with quickie glue pen on to the wings. This was cut out with a deckle edged nestie die and brushed on the edges with distress ink and mounted on to a piece of stenciled paper made with my gelli plate. The background paper is one of Lozzy's 'fun' ones.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January challenge


It's a new month of a new year and time for Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January challenge - please click on the link to see the beautiful designs by the rest of the team - and we would love you to join in our challenge - to enter, all you need to do is to use some patterned paper on your creation.

This is the card I made for John's birthday (30 December - one of those awkward ones that's too near Christmas!). I used a piece of Donna Ingemanson's rough & tumble across the middle, the other papers from Amy Butler's faded china - all by K & Co - I've had these paper pads for years so it's about time some got used!

I based the card on the sketch given for Sweet Sunday sketch 300:

using an 8 x 8 card blank.

The sentiment label is from Kanban, other bits and pieces from stash.

CHNC challenge extra for January


This is my card for CHNC challenge extra for January - where you are challenged to start over again with your Christmas designs ... you'll be grateful when you get towards the end of the year and begin to panic!

I used the lovely AKV Nativity - wiseman 1, 2 and 3 by Bugaboo Stamps, sponsor of the challenge, colouring with spectrum noir, mounting on gold card and then on to a piece of Kanban card, with a glittered strip across the bottom.
