CHNC challenge 383


This is my card for my CHNC challenge 383 - please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'for a child'.

The embossed background was created using mirror card with an Embossalicious embossing folder. The lovely big topper is from an old Kanban kit - the snowman, child and dog are embossed. I added the peel off greeting (they still come in handy sometimes - lol!).

Love to craft challenge 21 April


As you know, I made the hard decision to step down from DT work because of John's health, but I had already prepared this card and Leslie graciously suggested that I still show it for April.

So this is my card for Love to craft challenge 21 April: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and to enter our challenge.

This was a commissioned card (I know it was well received with pleasure). The background piece of card is some I've had for some time. I criss crossed the card with glitter and washi tapes before mounting the lovely big stamped image using the Keys to Music stamp by Troy Crisswell (Stamps Happen), coloured with spectrum noir pens, cut out and matted on to toning card. I used a piece of that card to run through the printer for the sentiment (sorry, not very clear here) - as this was a slightly shiny card I was able to quickly throw some silver embossing powder on the print out and heat it.The flowers were from Hobbycraft, originally white, but brushed lightly with stormy sky distress ink.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April 2018 challenge


This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April 2018 challenge - please click on the link to see the inspirational designs by my team and we hope you will join in our challenge using some patterned paper.

This 8" x 8" card was made using a background paper from DCWV Mariposa stack, with elements from Docrafts Papermania midnight blush capsule collection - heart lace paper, big bloomers (some cut down to layer), large ribbon bows - a textured rub on Happy Anniversary, the Love acetate topper (can't remember where I got this) and the lovely little swirls with pearls from Create and Craft. I stamped the lovely Stampington forget me not inked with memento, covering the words with the Congratulations sentiment.
