Thanksgiving at MSC 170

Hello again.

Over at it is new design team member Kristi's turn to pick a theme and she has chosen Thanksgiving.
We don't celebrate this holiday over here in the U.K so my card is not quite that style but it's a Thank You. Here it is...

I used papers from a country style pad I had along with pre-cut embellishments. Afraid I couldn't tell you who it is all by but its finished now.
I used a burnt orange cardstock to make my base card and its a tent fold too. I added a brad to the centre of the flower and a red star to cover a brown one that was on the tag. I mounted both tags on cream card for stability.

Now its your turn to join in with us this week, you could be chosen as our Guest Designer for the New Year!.

Tag Your It #169

This time around over at it is owner Sheri's turn to choose the challenge and it is one of use a tag shape anywhere on your project or even make a tag.

I chose to make a cute birthday card for a chap I know.

The card this time is 6x6 and uses Kaiserkraft papers. I cut the tag myself and added the Verve boarder at the bottom, the stamp is theirs too. The balloon die was Free with a magazine and it cuts so well giving a stiched edge too. I used the dots which came out of the die to pop around the card as gems wouldn't be approprate this time round lol.

Come and join in it should be fun!

MOJO Monday 418

I just love the sketch over at this week so I thought I'd give it a go. I save the sketches weekly but don't always get chance to join in but nearly always make a card at some point using it.

I used Verve's Better with You stamp set and I paper pieced the coffee cups. Bakers twine and a black cord I saved off a price ticket are used at the top. The centre blue paper has been embossed for texture and layered up on yellow flower paper.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Pretty In Pink #167

Well it's that time again to enjoy a fun challenge over at . This time it is the turn of Design Team Sister Peachy to choose. October is well known for raising awareness for Cancer Charities around the world so what better time to show your support and make a card or project to show you care.

Here is my card, it is 5x5 and uses two stamps from Verve as well as their ribbon die and fancy boarder. I love their dies they cut so well. All the papers used were precious scraps and I added a few gems too.

Please join in with this worthwhile challenge.

Tic Tac Toe 3 in a row.

Hello there,
Well this time around over at it is my turn to choose the theme and I've come up with this 3 in a row challenge.

Colour brown                     Twine                  Stencil

Butterfly                              Metal                  Flower

Ribbon                                 Tag                      Lace

Here is what I have made, it is a card for my uncle who likes to turn wood so I pulled out my bark embossing folder.

First off I made a 5x7 card base then matted on a piece of Kaisercraft paper from my stash which I inked around using corduroy, then I matted the bark effect on to black to make it pop. I cut out the tag shape by hand and used a Verve sentiment stamp on a die cut circle. I added the twine to the top. At the bottom I added 2 metal brads shaped like screws.
As you can see I used column B on my card Twine, Metal embellishment and Tag

I have used a sketch from Viva La Verve but didn't enter it then.

OK now it's your turn, leave a little comment so I know you've been by.

Challenge 165 Thinking of Fall

Today over at it is DT sister Glenda's turn to choose and she's in the mood for "Fall". So this time around your card or project must have either a Pumpkin or Scarecrow on it.

Here is what I have come up with

This cute little scarecrow was found on the Internet, I coloured him in using my Promarker Pens and them matted him on to the same blue card I made the card blank out of. Then I set about stamping and cutting loads of leaves. The background paper has sprays of flowers on with a touch of sparkle.
Now its your turn to come along and enjoy the fun.
