Love to craft challenge 2: anything goes


This is my design card for Love to craft challenge 2: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

Background paper is 7 gypsies 'adore' from collections for the journey on to which was matted a large label shape from Websters Pages. I knew that the recipient liked feathers on cards, so I added the purple one topped with a foiled todo rose (kindly sent with others from a todo crafting friend), adding the two sentiments.

A bit more time to craft challenge 27: anything goes


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 27 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the time and we hope you will join in our challenge.

This was a commissioned card - I was told that the recipient loves shoes and handbags, so I used a couple of Lozzy's mixed media papers on to which I matted a piece of The English Paper company paper purchased long ago. I cut out the shoes using the tattered lace 'hot off the catwalk delicate shoe die, having printed the paper twice so I could produce a left and right shoe.

The strip of squares across the bottom was cut from a 12 x 12 American crafts 'the color of memories' paper, on to which were added the glittery boots and handbags bought ages ago from Poundland. I added pearly flowers to the shoes and to the sentiment oval.

 I used another print of the paper to decorate the inside of the card:

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August challenge


This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper August challenge - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of my team and we hope you will join in with your entries, using some of your pattern paper in whichever way you wish.

I made the card recently for a friend who has a lovely big ginger cat. The background paper is from PDA Card and Craft.

For my card I used SLS lines lazy house cat, coloured with spectrum noir pens and die cutting using a dogo die, using a smaller one for the printed greeting. Both were brushed with brown corduroy distress ink. A piece of grosgrain paws ribbon was used for the 'stopper' for the easel upright.
