#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.

#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.

#460 CRAFT challenge – Spring/Easter

Our sponsor for this challenge was Eureka Stamps and I chose to use their “flower border” digi stamp. Head over to the CRAFT challenge to join us this week.

I had a couple of rabbits and the girl stamp in my stash as well as the background. Putting these together made me think of Easter, spring and April showers. I hope you like the combination.

I found some black glittered card and decided it looked like a night sky in space, so I made some planets by inking some circles. The craft and alien are coloured with my Chameleon pens. Such a cute alien!
