Here is a card for the Stamp Something blog. I have a new cherries stamp so just had to try it out. The central panel is white stamped onto acetate overlaid on black card.
Sweet Sugar Challenges has a great challenge to make something other than a card with Sugar Nellie stamps. So I decided to have a go at a coaster for cups 🙂 So patterned paper has been layered onto a circular piece of chipboard and then sealed with a varnish (to waterproof it a bit). It was fun to do.
WOW there is some fab blog candy up on Little Bird Design blog. And there is an added bonus that the winners will make a card from the blog candy and then be in for MORE candy. How cool is that?
Friday Sketchers posted a great new sketch from guest designer Heidi and here is my interpretation of it. I went for a brown and green palette with distressing inks to age the paper and print the watch and words background on the cream (colour hasn’t come out so well in the photograph) central panel. The prominent time-piece is stamped with StazOn onto acetate and held in position with a brad, two more of which hold the sentiments. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey’s Scarlett Letter range and also edged with distress ink.
I’m In Love. I’m in love with the Sugar Nellie stamps. I was really naughty and ordered two from Funky Kits 🙂 I just could not resist. Here is Chef Hamish and I thought I would enter him into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week, which has a patterned paper theme and a chance to win fab pattern paper downloads from Kaboodle Doodles.
Enfys has some great blog candy on offer for getting to over 40,000 blog hits. Well done, Enfys, and thanks for the go at the blog candy 🙂
This card is made for a boy’s birthday. It’s funny but most of the babies I know, children of friends and family, are boys. So I seem to be making lots of cards for young boys – at the moment. I thought I would go bright primary colours for this one and add texture through embossing (by hand!) and using corrugated card collected from some packaging and painted with acrylics. Thought I would enter this card into the fab blog candy challenge on the Dies to Die For blog and also the fun challenge from Papertake Weekly 🙂
I can up put the card that was partially inspired by period stone work in London and I partially described the making of in an earlier post. I was going to give this card to my mum for her birthday, so was delaying posting it here. But then I had a change of mind and have an even better card for you, Mum – but you will just have to wait and see 🙂
Looking out my window on this wonderful bank holiday weekend in London I see that it is cold, wet and very grey and windy. What a good excuse to stay at my crafting desk and enter a few challenges perhaps?
In this challenge from Think Monday – Think ATC, the idea was to produce two linked ATCs that can stand independently of each other but had a shared image.
There is some fantastic blog candy up for grabs at:
Heidi’s Papir Verden blog
Ellis Keeper blog
Good luck everybody.
