Was blog hopping and found Spyder's Corner and she just happens to be a creator for OSAAT where I am on the design team. So just had to have a go. It's a lovely little image which will do for all occasions and not just new homes!
This week's challenge(which starts today at midday) Is "Girly" Or you can use colours from a colour inspiration piccy. I used Trev drawn by Purple Panda........Purple Panda has lots of animals digis in her shop which needed to be made girly. So I printed it twice (one flipped) glued them back to back, coloured both sides the same and used Trev as a charm. The handbag is a from a downoad from the clipart fairy. To join in this week's challenge.............You'll find the link on my side bar
Made four similar this morning. I first downloaded three images from Sassy Cheryl's ( I just loved the image that Jak used on her card of the boy with his tongue stuck to the lamp post!!) The BP I made myself and changed the colours slightly to match each digi stamp. I tend to make my Christmas cards in batches as I have over 150 to send!
By The Clipart Fairy. Because my printer is acting up again I can only print on light card so I attached this to a square linen card. Looks OK though! To get the download go to the clipart fairies blog which can be found here
There is also a tutorial to show you how to make it (the print out actually makes two) if you print the backing twice!
Is the 2nd challenge on Stamp it crazy blog.......................And guess what? I won the the 1st challenge.........can't wait to get my digi stamp! This week's has to have a girl with attitude a ribbon (in the flower) a retro flower ( there are three to choose from, cos I'm not sure what a RETRO flower is DOH!) and a sentiment. If you want to be directed to the blog, you can find it here
Oh and in case you were wondering Missy has all the attitude in the world!!
I started off going to do some inserts that badly needed doing........But first thought I would download a couple of images from Mo Manning. So then decided which one to use for Adam's birthday and thought I would print it off ready. In the meantime had a phone call .......Could I make a Congrats card? So printed all of Adams bits and pieces off ready (by then I had already coloured it) And put it to one side. I then made the congrats card and finished Adam's card. Now you've guessed it! I never did get round to doing the inserts for the anniversary card. Oh Well, there is always tomorrow!!
She has some wonderful ideas on her website. I went on there this morning knowing what I wanted, but seemed it was a mixture of both her frame it cards and her front cards. I needed it to be interactive too as I wanted the sentiment on the outside and the picture in the aperture. I wasn't lucky, so set to to make my own. I used one of her heritage papers for the base and did the scallops in Scrapbook artist. I have apologised for pinching her idea...............I hope she will forgive me. You can find her website here
The theme for this week's challenge is "Pack a Punch" All you have to do is add a punch or punches to your project...........Nothing could be easier. The Winner this week will receive 3 stamps from the stitchy bear shop. I have used a MS border punch for my project, with a few pearl embellishments. The image is "Sorry" by mizumedia from the stitchy bear shop. To go to the challenge click here
Here my very first Box easel card. It's my friend's birthday early Sept and she always seems to be my guinea pig where cards are concerned. Normally the box would be filled with Choccies, but Lyn doesn't like chocolate sooooooooo..........................I will fill it with Mint Imperials nearer the time. Hope you like!
The one stitch at a time challenge starts again today at 12 noon. The theme this week is Mystical/ Dragons/ Fairies. My DT card for this week is using a beautiful image by stitchy stamps she is called "Ice Princess" isn't she just adorable? Pop across and have a peek at all the others, the link is on my side bar.
I don't usually go in for challenges but I saw this one on Paperplay and and thought I have just the card!! Just added a charm and there you have it. Recipe. 2 DP's......I ribbon....3 flowers and a charm Image from Kenny K
My goodness have you seen all the new releases on the Kenny K digi stamp site. They are marvellous....They are called "Gothik Angelz" and the one I chose for my challenge card is called " Delores D'Ammage" I love using all these vibrant colours, but found the best way to print them is on glossy photo paper........it brings out every detail!
I am Val and I have been card making for around six or seven years now. I live with my wonderful husband Tony and best friend of 44 years in Bridport Dorset. We have two sons, five grandsons and one grand daughter. I also have a beautiful Springer Spaniel called Holly, who recently cost us a fortune at the vets. But she is worth every penny.... love her! Hubby has converted our second bedroom into a craft room for me.......Bless him. I am on the admin team of crafters reunited. I hope to show you each card I make with a brief description.
