Let's craft and create challenge 110


This is my design for Let's craft and create challenge 110: lace and pearls.

The card blank is white (although the photo has made it look as if it is pale pink). The die cut cross is a Spellbinders die cut with a piece of matt silver using my new Todo. The circular stamp was from Hobbycraft, as were the flowers. Black lace from stash, pearls from Poundland.

I didn't have a long enough piece of the lace, so I used two snippets with the flowers added to fill the gap.

An altered box lid - the original box was red with white spots as you can see at the side. I covered the lid with white gesso and then used mod podge to adhere a piece of the top later of a paper napkin with hearts. I used a Balzer's Design roses stencil with imagination crafts silver sparkle medium, then used a piece of sequin waste dabbing through the holes with red Colorbox ink. Ribbon, hearts etc were then added.

I intend to use this box for a Valentine's present for John ... although I haven't got a clue what I'll put in it!

Delicious Doodles Guest Designer


I've been privileged to be asked to join Delicious Doodles: love is in the air, as their Guest Designer. As the theme is 'love' I chose to use the steampunk heart image. I coloured parts of this with metallic pens - gold, copper and light and dark silvers, sponging with fired brick distress ink. The two background papers were from PDA (a long time ago) - I sponged the main background one with the fired brick. I embossed a piece of 7 gypsies collections from the journey with an embossing folder and then sponged with fired brick. I added a metal keyhole from The Works and the sentiment which was generated on my Dymo letratag.

CHNC challenge 265: use a sentiment


For my CHNC challenge 265: use a sentiment, these are two quick cards that I made just before Christmas and didn't show. I fully intended to make something better this past week, but, because I've been really poorly all week, I haven't been able to do any crafting.

The backgrounds are from a Snowman kit, the toppers are Kanban, with other bits and pieces.

The Glory of Christmas challenge 76


This is my design card for The Glory of Christmas challenge 76: silver or gold ... or anything goes as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of others in the team and join in our Christmas challenge.

It was my turn to choose the theme for this fortnight - I think silver or gold on a Christmas card is lovely and bright and shiny. I chose to make a CAS card, using two stamps, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder. I stamped the 'scene' Personal impressions stamp by Sue Dix on to a piece of matt silver - now I wish I had stamped it directly on to the black card blank as I did with the Inkadinkado stamp on the left - but, hey ho!

This is also for Stamplorations January CAS card challenge: + option: silver:
