CRAFT challenge – #615

The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet n Sassy and the theme is Christmas – non traditional colours. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The cute little mouse snuggled up into the hat was coloured with Chameleon pens and then given a bit of glitz and glam by adding glimmer powder. I cut the image out on my scan n cut and then worked on the background. I took my card blank and stamped in a versamark clear and added pink embossing powder. I then added some more glimmer dust into the winter themed background border stamp.

CRAFT challenge – #613

The sponsor for this challenge is Jan’s Digital Stamps and the theme is anything goes. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase and this beautiful sentiment. The sentiment resonates, I think, after all of the lockdowns we have had over the last 18 months or so. Everyone has had their moments, but we have come through it and survived!

I coloured the image with chameleon pens and added some ink around the topper to help frame the image, but wanted to soften the block shape by adding some die cut borders. This was put onto a darker pink mat and all of this is added to a pink and white polka dot 300gsm base card.

CRAFT challenge – #612

The sponsor for this challenge is The Artsy Stamper and the theme is Grandparents. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of the flowers from the ‘Asters’ set. Replicated this within Inkscape to make a niche of flowers. Then I overlaid the sentiment and printed this into a 300gsm card base. Such a simple card once the image had been layered up.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 5th October 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I created my card using the following:

KLM Sunflower cups digital image

A4 white 300gsm base card

Chameleon pens (BR1, WG3, NU1, NU3, YO3, YO2)

Matte gold mats

Blue paper for the background

Tacky glue

The image I chose to use was these lovely cups along with the sentiment about friends. Friends often meet for coffee or tea so this felt like a card I would send to a friend to let them know I was around by writing we should meet for a catch up coffee (even though I don’t drink coffee).

I coloured the cups and tried to give them some texture as if they were stoneware cups. Then I cut out the cups and mounted them onto a blue mat as I felt this was a good contrast colour. Next I added a matte gold mat to both the image mat and the sentiment bringing things together.

As always, I hope that you like the card. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 21st September 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I created my card using the following:

Ike’s Art heart postbox digital image

A4 pink and white polka dot 300gsm card

Chameleon pens (RD4, NU1, PK3, PK2, PK4, VO2, PL5, RD2)

Distress oxide inks – Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry

Studio light ticket stamp and die set

Tattered lace starburst ovals

Leaf die

Fuchsia pink paper

Sparkly cream 240gsm card from pink frog

Gems

Paper trimmer

Anita tacky glue

The image I chose to use was this lovely postbox. With the hearts on it, it screamed anniversary to me and love, hence why I coloured it in red and pink Chameleon pens.

I recently picked up the ticket cutting die and decided that I wanted to team these up with the postbox image. I die cut 3 of these, created a background with some Victorian Velvet distress oxide ink then stamped with picked raspberry using some of the stamps from that set and others from another set. I mean it’s great to mix and match your stash isn’t it!

I cut out the starburst ovals but also kept the centre and used a pick up technique, with the distress oxide picked raspberry ink, to colour this mat. Next cutting out a few of the leaves too.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 7th September 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I’m using an image called Autumn Breeze. The windswept girl comes with a backing paper and I’ve chosen to reduce the size of her so that I could add a sentiment to the blank space. I have also inked around the outside of the image with some distress oxide inks and over stamped with some text in a pale colour to add a little more age and texture.

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.
