#181 Nothing Flat at myshericrafts

Wow that fortnight came round quick! I nearly wasn't ready!

Over at it is DT sister Sarah's turn to choose the challenge theme and she has asked us all to my a project that is NOT flat.

I was going to make a box card but ran out of time and I had the start of this tag laying on my table so I thought I'd finish that as I needed it soon anyway.

The tag is 6inch long so plenty to play with. I first painted it black front and back and then took some papers from my Kaisercraft stash and started pasting them down. The lace is cotton so has great texture, then I cut out butterflies and images from the collectables from the Miss Empire kit and randomly placed them down. I added flowers and leaves along with that cute brass bee. Everything is on silicone so nothing is flat.

Now its your turn to play along but first take a look at what the rest of the girls have made. Please leave a comment so I know you've been.

Mojo Monday 445

Today I decided to join in and use the sketch over at decided to make a square card for this challenge.

Here it is, its a small 4x4 card for my son to give a colleague who is leaving for a new job soon.
All the papers are from the same set which I picked up in a sale and they were double sided. I used a Verve sentiment along with another stamp from my collection.
I fussy cut out some flowers for the corners and lifted them with pop dots. Again sorry for the poor photo, it really is nice and bright in real life.


Colour Throw Down #390

I always love to checkout the colours over at and was pleased to be able to join in with them today.

Now look at those wonderful colours.

I had a good root around in my stash and found some golden yellow along with navy. Here is what I came up with.

Now please believe me when I say this is so bright in real life, I really must invest in one of those light boxes as this shot does not do it justice ( sorry DH).
The card is a 5x5 tent fold, I have used stamps and dies from Verve, along with a peeloff and the 'memory' note from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today.

#180 Make a Shaped Card

Over at it is owner Sheri's turn to choose the challenge and she has decided on us all making a shaped card. The card must not be square or rectangle so anything else goes.

Here is what I have come up with...

 I don't think I am very good at this sort of thing so I played it safe and cut out a small card blank using a Spellbinder Die. I then added a blue layer. The cute image is one off a sheet I bought a while back which came ready coloured in (phew) I also cut that out with a die and matted it on to a dull gold paper.
I cut out some Sprightly Sprigs and a butterfly by Verve and topped it off with three mini flowers and a few sequins. I also added some dots of perfect pearls.

This little Easter card was for my Mum to go along with it I made her a little treat box filled to the top with mini eggs.

Here it is along with what is her new favorite chocolate, Milkybar!!

I hope you have lots of fun making your shaped card, link them up and you could be our next Guest Designer.

Mojo 443, Best day ever

I've been lucky and had some free time today so thought I'd have a try at the Mojo Monday sketch #443.

I made a white A6 card blank but in a tent fold, then I took some left over papers from the Shine Bright collection by Kaisercraft and matted them on to it. I used a square of yellow vellum which I ran through a embossing folder first and on to that a polka dot piece with fishtails. The sentiment is from Verve, from Wishing You collection ( a favorite of mine) I cut out stars using their Starry Die too.
The card is lovely and bright, I hope you can tell.

Thanks for stopping by today.


Happiest of Days

I love this second sketch from Viva La Verve for April, so thought I'd join in. In fact I have made 4 similar cards using the sketch but different papers. I am just posting this one for now.

This is a small A6 card using up some papers I've had in my stash for a while. The rose paper must be atleast 10 years old!!The love note and polka dot papers are off cuts from papers used on a layout. They are by Kaisercraft from their Shine Bright collection.
I've also used Verve's Wishing You stamp set along with dies from Sprightly Sprigs and Petal Points. I made a little flower and added 3 pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today.
