CHNC challenge 244: use some silver


For my CHNC challenge 244 this week I'm asking you to use some silver on your Christmas creations - a little or a lot. I look forward to seeing your entries. If you haven't come across my challenge blog before, please click on the link to find out what it's about and join in - there are always lots of lovely prizes to be won.

My card is very simple and doesn't involve much silver, but there are dots of silver glitter around the lovely wreath that was rescued from a card received last year. The background paper is from a pack that came free with a magazine some time ago.

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 95: anything goes with a twist ... create your own background. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used the lovely Bugaboo Stamps Rainy day bears - rain rain (Bugaboo Stamps are sponsoring the challenge), colouring the image with paint. For the background I embossed some red mirror card using an Embossalicious embossing folder called 'picnic plaid'. The ribbon is some DCWV that I've had for quite some time and fabric buttons from Poundland. The sentiment strips were generated with my Dymo letratag.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 100


This is my design card for this week's Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 100: anything goes with a twist ... use a number.

I was commissioned to make this card by a friend whose Auntie was to be 100.

The oval in the middle is raised up a bit to give a bit more dimension.

Leather and lace


I was invited by the lovely Anne Lise to join her as a guest - you can read more about this here.

I used the lovely 'leather and lace' image supplied by Delicious Doodles, colouring with chameleon pens and mounting on to a piece of embossed paper that was originally gold and I swiped it with a red pen, hence it has a  nice shimmer to it. This was then mounted on to a piece of faux crocodile leather paper. The paper on the right hand side is Black market paper society ebony & alabaster Breakfast at Tiffany's. All papers were from my offcuts box. I used a panel of faux embossed leather with a silver sheen - this is almost like a thick material - it's the last piece of some that I bought years ago at Ally Pally. This seemed just the right sort of card to use it for. the lace on the left hand side is a rub on with some Deco Time pearls added and also on to parts of the image.

This is my design card for Crafting Musketeers challenge 28: use this sketch:

Please click on the link to see the rest of the designs from team B and click here to join in the challenge and see the lovely crafting of team A as well, if you haven't done so already.

The background paper of my card is from a booklet of The country diary of an Edwardian lady papers with a piece of purple Hot off the press paper matted on to it. The oval die cuts were some I recently recently as a prize. I used some snippet pieces of lace across the middle, although I didn't have enough to go all the way across, so careful placement of the ovals with foam pads hid the gap. The oval was stamped with one of my all time Penny Black favourites, sparklers, inked with Stazon gothic purple.

For my CHNC challenge 241 this week I'm asking to see things beginning with S - I hope you will click on the link to see the lovely prizes that will be won  randomly chosen and join in the challenge.

Keep calm and eat cupcakes


This is my design card for the second week of Cheerful stamp pad challenge 117 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and you can join in the challenge here.

I printed out the lovely Little Blue Button 'Miss Lilly big cupcake' image kindly supplied by the sponsor. I coloured with spectrum noir and used some glossy accents to make the cherry shine and some ice stickles glitter glue around the icing swirls. The pink floral paper is an offcut that I've had for ages, spotted ribbon from Hobbycraft and the Keep Calm saying was made using keepcalm-o-matic.

Let's create and craft challenge 104


This is my design card for Let's create and craft challenge 104: pearls or lace. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I decided to use both pearls and lace, the delicate cream lace being a rub on. I stamped part of one of my favourite Stampington 'Leonardo' stamp inked with memento rich cocoa, carefully dropping the die cut oval on to the inked stamp in the right place.The oval and the surrounding die cut were part of a prize I received recently. Ribbon and pearls from stash. The paper on the left is an offcut of K & Co paper from long ago.
