An outdoor scene


This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 73: an outdoor scene. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used a glittered outdoor scene that was rescued from a card received last year or before, matting it on to a foiled background on to which was stuck an offcut strip of striped card on to which I added a couple of almost-rejected pieces of ribbon (two separate pieces because there wasn't a long enough piece for the whole length).

Using die cuts


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 108: anything goes with a twist ... use a die cut. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of others in the DT and join in our challenge.

This is also for my own CHNC challenge 257 where I'm asking to see die cuts and/or punches used - more info if you click on the link - I'd love to see you there.

I love the Lacy Sunshine Christmas boo image (coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint) - Lacy Sunshine are sponsoring Suzy Bee's this week. I die cut this using a Docrafts Xcut rectangle parenthesis die, using a larger one to cut out the mat underneath, using an offcut from my Christmas box. The background card is from Kanban (it's been lurking for some time now), a couple of Poundland flowers and a red and pink bow rescued from a box of freebie No. 7 cosmetics and a silver sentiment saying Happy Christmas.

Playing with purple


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 112: anything goes with a twist ... add some purple. Please click on the link to see the lovely purple designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I didn't need much of a nudge to get the purple pens flowing and to find pieces of purple patterned papers in my offcuts box, including a piece that had been stamped with a Dawn Bibby swirls stamp (left over from a card long ago). The image is Dilly Beans Molly's hearts frame which I coloured with spectrum noir pens. With the addition of a piece of ribbon, some sparkly gems from Tiger and a Craftime sentiment, the card was finished.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 71: CAS


This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 71: clean and simple. Please click on the link to see the lovely CAS designs by others in the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I've used papers that were free with a Quick Cards magazine matting the inner piece on to a matt piece of silver. I used stamps that were given with the papers, inking all of the stamps with versamark and heat embossing the sentiment and the lower corner with detail silver powder and the snowflakes with WOW silver dollar to give some more sparkle. The card looks more sparkly in real life.

CHNC challenge extra for November mid-month inspiration


There are already so many entries for our CHNC challenge extra for November, but we would love to see many, many more ... please keep them coming! If you have a look here we have some mid-month inspiration from some of the team and this is the card that I'm adding, using a piece of Kanban card from long ago, one of their frames with an offcut of matt gold underneath. The sparkly angel is one from a sheet bought at Tiger and the ribbon is some from long ago (loads of it left, so it's about time I used some!)

CHNC challenge 255: red and green must be seen


A new challenge starts this morning on my CHNC blog - for CHNC challenge 255 I'm saying that 'red and green must be seen' - a little or a lot - and any other colours can be used too if desired.

So this is my card with a holographic red shiny background with stars (very hard to get a photo, especially as this wasn't done till the evening before the challenge leaving no daylight to help). The three squares featuring stamped and embossed pieces of poinsettia were upcycled from a card that was received ages ago. I think there actually was a fourth square ... but somehow it's got lost, so I thought the sentiment strip with a couple of Poundland poinsettias would fill the gap nicely.

CHNC challenge 254


My CHNC challenge 254 has started this morning and this week I'm asking to see bright or sparkly colours on your Christmas creations. It's a busy time for crafters now that Christmas is looming within our sights, so, if you make anything for Christmas, please share it if it fits the challenge ... and don't forget that you can share anything for Christmas on my CHNC challenge extra for November - hope to see you there. And, if you've used any patterned paper, then we would love you to enter our Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper November challenge.

So here is my hard for CHNC challenge 254 using some of the lovely colourful and sparkly papers from the DCWV NOEL holiday glitzy glitter stack (there's one being given away as one of the four prizes this week) kindly supplied by Die Cuts With a View. I used an A5 tent style card.

The photo doesn't do the card justice because the oval picture is actually underneath an acetate layer that was taken from the cover of the stack - this was too good to waste:

 I covered up the writing with a strip of the striped glittered red and white paper and then turned it sideways, sticking down on the right had side, but leaving the acetate part open on the left. The little reindeer is stuck on to the outside of the acetate, as is the greeting and the poinsettias.
