Crafty Catz Challenge - Beautiful Blooms

Image
It's Friday again which means it's time for our new challenge at Crafty Catz. This week we are anything goes with the optional twist of beautiful blooms. A Day For Daisies is our generous sponsor this week, and I have used the lovely Cherry Blossom Cluster digi stamp on this card.




I printed the image 4 times and coloured each image with Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils. The sentiment is from the For The Love of Stamps Bright and Beautiful stamp set. The cardstock used is Creative Expressions white pearl card and Hunkydory Adorable Scorable matt-tastic for the pink. The finished size is 6"x6".

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

I'm sharing another of my samples made for the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom - A Magical Christmas launch. Unfortunately, it was really difficult to get a decent picture of this card!




I've used the Perfect Backgrounds stamping pad and stamps from the collection. I've also used some Hunkydory snowfall acetate for the card front. I adhered the backing paper to a piece of white card cut to the same size. I cut the piece of acetate slightly taller than this piece, scored a line along the top and adhered the folded acetate flap to the back of the backing paper covered piece, creating the card blank itself. I used the new Festive Fairies and Prancing Pixies Moonstone dies cut in black card to embellish the acetate front of the card. The sentiment has been stamped in black Versafine and added to the front of the card.

Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom - A Magical Christmas

Image
Today I'm sharing one of my samples made for the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom - A Magical Christmas launch. This gorgeous collection was launched on Create and Craft today at 4pm, with shows scheduled for 10am tomorrow, 2pm Thursday and 5pm Friday (if there's any stock left!).




I have used the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom - A Magical Christmas Perfect Backgrounds Stamping Pad and the co-ordinating For The Love of Stamps Twilight Kingdom - A Magical Christmas stamps to create this card. I've used a Hunkydory ink me! white 6" x 6" card blank, some midnight black For The Love of Stamps superior stamping card, Peacock Feathers and Weathered Wood Distress Inks and black Versafine ink to stamp with (using the second generation image for the stars). A pretty simple and quick card, but it's so easy to put together lovely cards very quickly with this stunning collection.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all those celebrating it today. I'm stopping by to share the card I made for my dad.




I've used the For The Love Of Stamps A Work Of The Heart and Bright and Beautiful stamp sets and coloured with Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils. I masked off some of the images to create the scene, as they're all separate stamps. The sentiment is hand-written.

Crafty Catz Challenge - Anything Goes

Our new "anything goes" challenge starts today at Crafty Catz and this week we are sponsored by Scrap N Dipity. We are also running our GDT call for July, so if you're interested then you just need to add "GDT" after your name when you link up your entry.




I have used the Fenna: My New Glasses digi stamp, coloured with alcohol pens with some glossy accents added to the glasses. The papers were a free gift years ago from an issue of Papercraft Inspirations. The butterflies and flowers are fussy cut from the papers. I've also added some pearls and Tonic Nuvo drops.

Today I'm sharing a quick card that's been made using the Heartfelt Creations Berry Café 12"x12" paper pad.




I have added some glitter glue and Tonic Nuvo drops, as well as the hand-written sentiment. Everything else is from the paper pad (aside from the 6"x6" card blank). A really simple and quick card to put together.

Crafty Catz Challenge - Use Ribbon Or Twine

Image
It's time for our new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week we are anything goes with the optional twist to use ribbon or twine. Crafty Ribbons is sponsoring us this week and they are offering a fantastic prize.




The image I have used is from Whimsie Doodles, who have unfortunately now closed their shop. I have coloured with Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils, adding glitter glue details. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out all the mats and layers. The papers are a mixture - some from Papercraft Inspirations Magazine, some from Tilda and some from Hunkydory. I also added some silver metallic card, as well as the pretty silver ribbon. The sentiment stamp is from the For The Love Of Stamps Floral Favourites stamp set. Finished size is 6"x6".
