Let's craft and create challenge 111


This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 111: Easter. Please click on the link to see the beautiful designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in with your Easter projects.

I used the lovely Personal Impressions Easter stamp by Graham Pilkington, colouring with chameleon pens and cutting out by hand before adhering to the scalloped edge die cut. I then matted this on to the die cut with the cut edges, raising it up with a double layer of 3D foam, then matting this with two layers on to the torn yellow oval. The background with the chicks is vellum. I used a scrap of the striped yellow paper under the dimensional spring strip from Hobbycraft (quite a while ago).

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 120


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 120: anything goes with a twist ... a touch of spring. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and join in our challenge.

I used a sentiment image and a buttefly one from The Stamping Boutique, sponsors of the challenge, combining them together and colour with spectrum noir pens (they say the camera never lies, but the colouring looks better irl than it does here ... ah well!).
