Halloween Time Challenge 145.

Hi There,
over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it is design team sister Peachy's turn to choose the challenge and this time around she has picked "black magic" no I don't mean the box of chocolates either lol. We have to produce a card or project with a Halloween theme.

Now this is a first for me, I have made a 8 sided cup filled with a sachet of hot chocolate, a bag of chocolate shapes and a stirrer with a happy balloon flying witch. Now truth be known I saw this on the TV and just had to have a go at one.


I used heavy black card as the cup but added Kaisercraft 13th hour paper which I inked. The base is made up with a burnt orange paper and yet more black. I used my Cricut to cut the Boo and SB dies to cut the top of the stirrer. The bag of sweets are from Marks and Spencers and came with a plastic spider. I also added a hot chocolate drink to the cup too. The handle is strong enough to lift the cup up totally filled.
Now its your turn to give it ago, show us what you have come up with for Halloween.

Happy Crafting
Sue

DH thinks this photo is more atmospheric, what do you think?

Autumn Abundance Challenge 144

Hello,
This time around over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it's Marge's turn to choose the challenge and its another great one. This time around you have to make a card/project using "Fall" items we see everywhere right now. Things such as leaves, acorns, fruits of the season, pumpkins etc.

I decided to make a card this time around using a sentiment stamp as the focal point and added lots of leaves around it.


The card is 6x6 and a placed a sheet of paper I have had in my stash for ages, its from a paper pack and I made the strip and the mats for the sentiments from little bits I had left over from the pack. The leaves have been stamped with various sets I have then hand cut. All have been raised on Pinflare glue.

Now pop over if you haven't already to see what the other girls have made then link up your own project with us.

Sue.

Mum's Birthday Card

Here is another card made using the sweet bunting banner my good friend sent me for my birthday. This time I used it on a card to celibrate my Mum's birthday yesterday.

 
I made a 6x6 card blank and using all papers from Kaisercraft and this lovely P.G. tip Bestie I created this card. My mum is what we call a "tea belly" hardly ever drinks coffee and almost always has to be her favorite tea "P.G.Tips.
I trimmed up a little off the side of the card to add the stripe paper, the flowers on the bottom left are raised up on foam dots over the top of the same flat paper. I ran the top left and bottom right through an embossing folder and inked with marmalade.
Hope you like it.

Bunting and Banners...143

Hello there,
Today over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it's owner sheri's turn to choose the challenge and she's picked a " good un" as we say. It's to use either a banner or bunting on your card or project. Now this will be fun to see all your entries. There are so many dies out there so let's see how many different ones you use.

Here is my card it has been made for Big Sister Beverley who celebrated a couple of days ago. Her and her hubby have purchased one of those coffee pod machines that a certain Mr Clooney advertises and she loves it ☺️��. So when I saw this cute little digi over on the Bestie site I had to buy it. I know so many people who love a coffee just a shame there isn't a guy one out there as my better half is addicted too.


The card I made is a 7 x 7, I coloured her in using a lot of muted coloured Promarker pens with the papers in mind. I have used my Verve stamps on here to make the Java strip, sentiment and their die to cut the cup out. I even used the wet cup stain to make the background paper and then inked the edges. The banner was a birthday gift from my dear friend and I cut it out twice to insert the blue. Others dies from Spellbinders have been used too.



This card is using banners. I needed a simple girly birthday card so for this I used some free papers along with some gems. The sentiment is the free stamp that came with the papers. I made the flower using a SB die.

Right now it's your turn to join in, so pop over to see the other girls makes and then post your creation .

Challenge 142 Birthday Bash


Hi There,
this time over on www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it is Design Team Sister Raquel's turn to pick the challenge and this time she has chosen Birthday's . We must include elements to do with Birthdays.

This time I decided to do a layout of my Dad's 80th Birthday. We all went up there and took afternoon tea with him and my Mum in a lovely old hotel on the promenade in Llandudno.

 
He use to drive buses for a living so his birthday cake was just like one. He also in his youth played cricket hence the umpire and the "80 Not Out" but his one other love (other than my Mum) was his garden.
 
On the layout I have used lots of bits and bobs and I think he'll love it when he sees it.
 
Right now its your turn to join in, but do checkout the other girls birthday treats.

Challenge 141 on My Shei Crafts

Hello,
long time no blog!! This week over at www.myshericrafts.blogspot.com it is Sarah's turn to choose the challenge and she has asked us all to make a project to celebrate September the month of the piano or if not that atleast to have something musical on it.

As you can see no piano but I do have a music sheet and a cute carol singer,

 
This card is a 6x6 in kraft. I used a stamp which came free with a magazine last month by "Tiddly Inks" there were 5 stamps and a small embossing folder in the give away.
 
I used up some scraps on this card too, the music sheet is off a bit I couldn't throw away by Graphic 45 and the damask paper is a tiny bit left aswell. The snowflakes are cut from the music paper and gold paper with a small black pearl added. I coloured her in using my Promarkers.
 
Thanks for stopping by today, see what the other girls have made (some stunners) and then link up your own design.

Angels Week

Hello there,
This time over at www.myshericraft.blogspot.com it is Peachy's turn to choose and she has picked "Be an angel day" on 22 August. So for this one she would like us to have an angel on your card or project.

Here is my card

I chose this sweet "Bestie" Christmas Angel. I picked a 6x6 pearl card blank then added a sheet of striped paper. The strip down the front is a small bit I couldn't throw out from 2005 by Basic Grey. I used a SB die to cut out the snowflakes and stars. The sentiment is a stamp but who from ?! I can't remember sorry.
I coloured her in using my Promarker Pens. Everything from the Basic Grey is lifted using foam pads. Oh I also used Copics on her hair to try and make it more life like.

Now it's your turn to add your lovely to the challenge.
