Challenge 195, think winter!

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

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

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!

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

November Challenge at Bestie International.

Well its time for another challenge over at Besties International and as its November 1st we are thinking "Fall".

This is my card for the challenge which uses the Autumn Bestie 3d decoupage kit, which is available here Sherri Baldy Besties Shop  I printed her out on to a A5 size photo paper to give you an idea of size and after cutting the layers I mounted her on to a mat cut from a Spellbinders die.
The card blank I made out of a deep burgundy red then I added a touch of green Graphic45 paper. I couldn't find a paper I liked in my stash next so I made my own first stamping with versa mark and embossing in gold a fern stamp. Then I set to with distress inks.
I cut two fishtail banners from papers used and added those then I wrapped around the bakers twine. The next paper is again a Graphic45 I just loved this sheet, I loved the cluster of sunflowers and autumn fruits which I added to with handmade flowers, a flourish, the twirly bits off the flowers and some dots of black and pumpkin perfect pearls.
All that was left to do was to add my image to the left and we are done.

I hope you get chance to join in with the challenge and pop back on the 15th for a look at another cute Bestie image made in to a project.

Thanks for stopping by today.


Anything with a Bow!


Well it's the first of the month and time to play along with a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this time it is quite an easy one of 'anything with a bow' on it.
For this challenge I have made a card. It is one of three required for a young lady turning 21 soon.

This is a large A5 bright white card blank. First I took a piece of white card and stamped with different Dew Drop inks the full flower from the Verve simply Amazing  stamp set and then over stamped with the open flower. I then inked around the edge with a little mustard seeds ink and matted it on to a mustard cardstock. I wrapped around a satin ribbon and added the card to the card blank using foam pads.
I took the same ribbon to make a bow but first layed a black and white bakers twine bow with longer tails. I then stamped more flowers but the smaller sized open flower and added them to a few of the flowers using foam pads again to give lift.
I used the matching daisy die to cut the flowers above as well as the centre of the flower with I cut in glitter paper. I stamped some of the flower centers in black about the card and also added a few clear sequins too.

I got the idea for this card from Guest Diva  Mackie Robertson over at Verve shop Gallery . When I buy a new set I love to check out the gallery to see what has been created.

Well now it is your turn to go checkout the challenge and join in. Please leave a word or two as its nice to know who has stopped by.
