#464 CRAFT challenge – new baby

Come and join us at the CRAFT challenge this week. Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps.

One of the girls at work has just left on her maternity leave so this card was ideal for me to make and I love the image and sentiment. I didn’t know when I made it whether she was expecting a girl or a boy so I stuck to yellow and green to be neutral.

The yellow card is adorable scoreable and the green dogtooth and grey I had in my stash. The image was coloured with Chameleon pens. The image is ‘Bentley on the inside’.

#177 Dream Valley Challenge – At least two buttons

Come and join us at the Dream Valley Challenge this time. The challenge this week was to use at least two buttons.

My aunt loves her knitting (and cats) and I’ve had this DieSire edgeables die for a while and wanted a project to use it on. This I decided was the one.

#463 CRAFT challenge – Christmas

Come and join us at the CRAFT challenge this week. Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter.

The background and foreground images are both from The Paper Shelter and the image is called ‘Flight Plan’. I coloured the image with Chameleon pens and cut some ferns and snowflakes to put behind the main image. You can imagine all of the little children awaiting Santa’s well planned visit on Christmas Eve.

#462 CRAFT challenge – get well

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights so come and take a look and join us at the CRAFT challenge. I chose Poor Luvvy.

Recipe: Digital Delights ‘Poor Luvvy’ digital stamp, a 6×6 300gsm white card, gold card, coordinating paper, 3 flowers, 3 blue stones, distress inks, and chameleon pens.

I coloured the image with chameleon pens and searched through my stash (as you do!) to find a background for the image to sit on. This was then die cut to create the mat, as well as the gold card. I inked the base card and the flowers to co-ordinate with the image and background and put the card together.

#176 Dream Valley challenge – Dry embossing.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Cute as a button stamps, come over and join us in the Dream Valley challenge .

For this first card I printed out the girl with the sack of buttons. I decided I wanted her to have orangey brown hair and the colouring took shape from there. The background was one I’d made a few weekends ago when I had some spritzer bottles and inks. I cut the background to fit onto this card and dry embossed a chevron pattern onto it. I used some of the same sheet to add a sentiment to the tab which said happy birthday and embossed that too. I love the pastel colours.

For this second card I chose to use a turquoise theme and coloured the image in various tones of two chameleon pens. I chose a colour to suit this and dry embossed a background then wiped a white ink pad over the top of the embossing. The sentiment from Crafters Companion flutterby collection was then stamped onto the same colour card stock and layered up with some flowers gems and ribbon. To finished I added the fairy dust falling from her hand with some iridescent stickles.

#461 CRAFT challenge – shaped card, not rectangular

For this challenge our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe and the shaped card I’m using is the teapot. Come and take a look and join us at the CRAFT challenge.

Recipe: white 300gsm card, white 160gsm card, distress inks – crushed olive, twisted citron, shabby shutters. Stayz on jet black ink. Stamps by Chloe flower stamp, bubble stamp, a sentiment from my stash, and Chameleon pens.

I cut the teapot from The Cutting Cafe and also the lid. These were both inked and stamped on. I stamped the flowers and coloured those and cut them out.

It’s a cute little teapot that could be used for afternoon tea invitations! I hope you like my teapot card.
