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.

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

CRAFT challenge – #609

The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet n sassy. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge.

With everything that has been going on in the last 18 months I think that our children need a card like this to tell them we love them and that they are unique and that they will come through this.

I’ve coloured this sweet little Sweet n Sassy digital image with chameleon pens, mounted it onto a note page created from an embossing folder and inked with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide. Onto that I have stamped “Be Unique” which is a Woodware clear stamp

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