CHNC challenge 318


It's Saturday morning and that means it's time for a new challenge on my weekly Christmas challenge blog. So here is my card for CHNC challenge 318, which is 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' with the optional theme of 'no sentiment' ... I want to stress that this is purely optional. Please click here to find out about the challenge ... and I hope I'll see your entries there. Oh ... and there is a prize to be won!

It's another card using one of the beautiful Elisabeth Bell toppers, mounted on to matt mirror card, with background paper from a Kaisercraft pad. The fabric tape with stars was from The Works and the gold star punched from a scrap piece of the gold card with a gem added in the middle.

Penny's challenge 313


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 313: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope to see your entries for the challenge.

For my card I used Digistamps4Joy two tubes image, kindly supplied by one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir markers, rounding the corners and mounting on to a piece of textured card. The background is a card blank from a set from Design Objectives (there's a matching envelope, which is nice).

I can't remember where the die cut, embossed beer mug came from - it's been in a box with other 'male' toppers etc for ages - thought it would be just right for here. The Happy Birthday sentiment piece of blue card from Kanban is an offcut from making an earlier card (for Penny's challenge 312 last week). I thought it was about time that I use some of the little Scrabble-like tiles that I bought years ago.

So, two tubs or one?

CHNC challenge 317


If you are a 'regular' entrant at my weekly CHNC challenges you'll need to know that from now on I have made some changes that you can read about here. If you haven't taken part in my CHNC challenges before, I'd love to see you there - it makes sense to make Christmas cards throughout the year to avoid panic towards Christmas. That's why I started my CHNC weekly challenges six years ago.

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 317: 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas' with the optional theme of 'use a sentiment'.  This was a commissioned card that I made for Christmas 2016 (not blogged before now), using Hunkydory supplies, plus the printed piece at the bottom.

Penny's challenge 312


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 312: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the design team and we hope to see your entries.

The lovely image is Little Blue Button's pirate Sam, kindly supplied by Little Blue Button as sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir alcohol pens and mounted on to an offcut of gold card. The background is a piece of Kanban sentiment card (sorry that the repeated Happy Birthday doesn't show up too well here). The two other images are cards from a 'snap' game and the wording was generated on computer and printed.

Penny's challenge 311: anything goes


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 311: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope to see your entries for the challenge.

For my card I used The Paper Shelter birds couple pre-coloured image (The Paper Shelter are sponsoring the challenge).

I printed this on to paper and then stuck the Kanban frame on to it and ran through the printer again, adding a rub on sentiment. Papers are from my offcuts box - the blue background from Anna Griffin and the sentiment paper from Kanban (long ago). The lovely paper and pearl flowers are from The Works.

Second card for CHNC challenge 315



This is my second card for CHNC challenge 315, which is another one that I made before Christmas, along with lots of other similar ones, when I didn't have much time left, so the cards had to be clean and simple!

The  image is a pre-coloured topper from Elisabeth Bell's lovely collection, mounted on to matt silver mirror cut on the Scan n Cut. Paper is Memory box yuletide.

This is also for Paper sweeties inspiration challenge 51:

More mixed media January challenge: optional blue


This is my little project for this month's More mixed media January challenge, using blue. Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of others in the team - and we hope you will be able to join in with your entries.

When I saw this little rocking horse in The Works recently I knew I wanted to use it as a 'Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy' - something a bit different.

With John still in hospital (I'm going every day to visit), time for crafting has been limited and I didn't do this project justice at all. I painted the bare rocking horse using white gesso mixed with blue acrylic paint and then added bits and pieces.

So I used something new (rocking horse), something old (the other bits and pieces), for a new baby.

Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope you will be able to join in the fun with your entries. When you visit the challenge blogpost you will see the tremendous prize on offer ... sadly, for our last challenge.

I used The paper shelter's final touch image - a pre-coloured one and added the sentiments, mounting on to an offcut of mirror card. Background paper is by Best Creation. The photo doesn't do it justice, as a lot of the wording is glittered and shiny. The strip of bunting is from some stickers from Poundland and the little shaker domes were from Paperchase.

I used three of Lozzy's Infinity papers, tearing one and adding another. I found a birthday sentiment oval that was just right (had it for ages and had never found the right time to use it till now). Fabric flowers and wood/cork butterfly from The Works and crystal spacers from Hobby House.

I was delighted to be asked to join the DT for Do-al(l) kreatives and today is challenge 1: everything goes with something new. Please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I chose to feature 'new life/marriage' with my design card, using  a matt silver card blank and framing the stamped wedding image (Anita stamp) in a Kanban frame. I coloured the image with spectrum noir pens and added some quickie glue pen and Art Institute glitter. The sentiment and ribbon (new, not used before) are from stash and the names were added using my Dymo letratag.

This is also a blog hop, so please start at Do-al(l) kreatives.and follow the list - when you get to my blog, please leave a comment on this post and I will give a mystery prize to one randomly chosen winner.
