A bit more time to craft challenge 47 for July


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 47: anything goes. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

For my card I used three of Lozzy's lovely Iris papers - you can see Lozzy's lovely papers here - so many delightful papers - and you have the chance to win some by entering the challenge.

I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called sparklers, inked with memento grape jelly, using the same ink arrange all paper edges. The sentiment stamp was from Hobbycraft.

CHNC challenges


This is my card for my CHNC challenge extra for July 2017. Please click on the link to see the lovely festive designs from my design team and we hope you will join in ... anything goes as long as it's Christmas. Now is an ideal time to start making your Christmas designs if you haven't yet started.

The foiled background paper was a magazine freebie. The image is a retired Bugaboo Stamps one called AKV girl xmas tree - Bugaboo Stamps kindly sponsor our CHNC challenge extra every month - another reason to click on the challenge link to find out what's on offer for the randomly selected winner.

I backed the image with a red and gold foiled piece of card - been in my offcuts box for ages, as had the strips used on the left and across the bottom. Washi tape was then added to these.

I'm also showing this card for my CHNC challenge 340 where the optional theme is to use some washi tape. I hope you will also be able to join in this challenge ... and don't worry if you don't want to use washi tape ... it is purely optional ... anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
