December Challenge at Besties International.

Hello again,

My post this time is for Besties International . As it is the 1st of the month it's time to start a new challenge and this one is for Christmas/Winter. So you can make for a holiday or another winter event. There are some great prizes to win if you come over and join in.

I have chosen to make a sweet box wrap.



We all know how hard it is to think of gifts for teachers and helpers, it can cost so much when you have a few to buy for. So this makes an inexpensive box of sweets in to a nice little gift with its addition of a seasonal wrap.
I have used Kaisercraft papers along with a Spellbinder die and a little fired brick ink. then I took the Img 943 and coloured it in using my Promarker pens. I cut it out and matted it on to red card then lifted her up using foam pads.
You could make the wraps very quickly and then take your time colouring in and add to the gift just before you hand them out.

There are plenty more wonderful images to be found over at the Sherri Baldy Etsy Shop for lots of holidays not just Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a comment so I know you have been by.

Eclectic Ellapu December Challenge.

Hello There,
Time for another fun challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time it is finally Christmas!!

Well for us card makers its our busiest time of the year and most of us have been at it for months lol. The challenge is to make a Christmas Card or any other Winter Holiday.

Here is my take on this challenge


This card is a deep red 5x7 card blank, which I have matted a lovely smooth green card on to. Then I have chosen a piece of a Kaisercraft Xmas paper which as you can see has the trees and little birds dotted about. I then added a "merry" cut on my Cricut machine and a Christmas cut by a die to the top I added a couple of extra birds on foam pads and some dots of Stickle's red glitter glue. The green snowflake die in the bottom right is new to me this year as I picked it up in a sale in the summer.
I then went to my stash of Besties Images and picked out this little cutie which is Scann004-MyBesties-Christmas and coloured her in using my Promarker Pens, I lifted her up on foam pads too. If you'd like to purchase this or any other Bestie image you can get one here Scrapbook Stamp Society .

Thanks for stopping by, check out the other girls creations and then link up yours.

Challenge 195, think winter!

Hello,
Well this fortnight it is my turn to choose the theme over at My Sheri Crafts and in readiness for the busy time of the year for us card makers I have chosen for us to make a card or project with a "Winter" theme. Now it hasn't got to be Christmas it could be any winter holiday.

Here is what I have come up with,


This is a 6x6 bright white card blank which I have matted on to it a smooth green card and then a almost knitted looking black paper which first went down on to red and then gold mirri card. The image is by Elizabeth Bell by Hobbyhouse, which I cut out using a stitched circle die. I matted that on to the same green and gold as before. I quite liked offsetting the circle to one side giving me room to add a cluster of snowflakes along with a few dots of perfect pearls and a gold sentiment on a tiny banner.

Please pop over and check out the other girls ideas and then when your ready link up your card.

Card in a Box

Hello,
Today I wish to share with you a Card in a Box for a young lady who will be turning 21 soon. The brief was something girly with shoes, fashion, hand bags oh and did I mention girly lol.

Here is what I made,


The papers used are by Kaisercraft and Cor-denations. I also used girly collection fancy buttons, ribbon from my stash along with a silver key and heart pearl button surrounded by gems. The stamps are by Verve Stamps the butterfly and flower are on clear acetate to give the impression of flying away.
There is a cute little surprise under the front flap as this young lady is training to be a hairdresser.


Thanks for stopping by today.

I am entering this card on the following blogs  color it create it show it off

A Little November My Bestie Reminder Card

Hello,
Well it's the 15th of the month so that makes it reminder day over at Besties International and this month we are thinking 'Fall' so you will see lovely cards and projects with that theme in mind.

So here is my thought on it, take one cute little guy and his sling shot trying to get down the neighbours ripe apples and so with a couple of misses he is looking a bit sheepish when he's caught!!



I made the 5.5 x 5.5 card blank in white. Covered it with Core-denations Tulip card and on to that Kaisercrafts 'Class Act' paper which shows rulers and stuff in basic colours.
Using Tim Holtz splat die I cut out 3 and placed them down the left side raising the top one on foam pads. I cut out 2 dragon flies twice attaching only down their bodies so their wings could lift. The sentiment is a Verve one as is the black edge die under the little fella.
The cute little guy is image 571 and you could win him if you enter our challenge. If not he is available here in the Scrapbook Stamp Society Shop 

Pop over to see what the girls have made and then join in.

Frame It!

Hi,
Over at scrapbook stamp society challenge blog they have a new challenge and it is one of anything goes with a frame. It so happens I made this card before I saw this challenge so thought I'd give it a go.

The card is a large A5 which I have made another card top and to that I added the pretty flower paper but not before I stitched around the edges. I distressed the edges and then added it. I added a pink doily, some paper flowers and leaves, a few gems and a sentiment which I matted twice.
I printed out my image and coloured her in using my Promarker pens. I cut out a frame using 2 Spellbinder dies and placed it over her. I then made another mat using another die and placed my image on top of it using foam pads to give lift.
Thanks for stopping by today, leave a few words so I know who's been.

Thanksgiving at My Sheri Crafts.

Hello there,
Well its that time again to come play along with us over at My Sheri Crafts. for our next challenge. This time it is the turn of my best friend Sandy to choose and with it being almost Thanksgiving in the USA she has asked us all to make a card for that holiday. Now I live over here in the UK and so don't celebrate that holiday so to join in I have made a Thank You card.


I made this 5x5 card using a bright white card blank and matting on to it some Graphic45 holiday paper, then I cut out 2 circles one in bling green and the other in mat red. I cut out a banner using the same paper as before.
I stamped out the wreath from O Christmas Tree by Verve Stamps and then I stamped out the bow on to the plaid paper and attached it. The sentiment is a stamp which came free with a magazine. To finish off I added 6 gems to the corners.

I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday so I will be entering this card in there challenge too.

Thanks for stopping by today
