A bit more time to craft EXTRA March challenge


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft EXTRA March challenge: 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 vintage love 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.

The stamped image is Penny Black sparklers (one of my all-time favourites) inked with memento rich cocoa. I used the tip of this stamp to repeatedly stamp at the top and bottom. I added an offcut scrap of glittered strip, burlap birds and the offcut piece of floral border from stash.

A bit more time to craft challenge 63


This is my design card for A bit more time to craft challenge 63: 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 8 x 8  card I used four of Lozzy's Joy papers - you can see Lozzy's lovely papers here - and you have the chance to win some by entering the challenge.

I stamped around the edge of the main background paper using a lovely Magenta floral stamp inked with memento grape jelly. The flowers are from a Docrafts Papermania capsule range - I have lots of these in various collections and have always been a bit stumped as to how to use them as they are all the same diameter. Recently, I've started to chop down some of the petals so that I can layer the blooms - I love the look of them like that. I added a tiny flower in the centres and added the glittered acetate butterflies from Hobbycraft and the sentiments.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 2018 challenge


This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 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 paper and flowers from Docrafts Papermania Parisienne blue capsule collection - the prize for the challenge this month is an 8" x 8" paper pack from this collection. The flowers are from a Docrafts Papermania capsule range - I have lots of these in various collections and have always been a bit stumped as to how to use them as they are all the same diameter. Recently, I've started to chop down some of the petals so that I can layer the blooms - I love the look of them like that.

The lovely floral image is a Magenta stamp inked with memento Paris dusk, matted on to an offcut of pearlescent dark blue card. Ribbons, pearls and greeting from stash.
