JIC Wk 18

I'm not sure where the last week has gone, it's time for another challenge over at Just Inspirational, this is week  18 and the challenge is to make a Shaped Card. Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps.

So have some fun creating your shaped card and enter into the challenge.

I decided to make an easel card and used a Marianne Creatable die for the frame, then used the die to draw around for the shape of the base and backing for the easel.
The base card is from Hunkydory, I inked over the frame whilst the card was still in the die to accentuate the embossed bits, the digi image from Bugaboo is coloured with Promarkers.  I cut the flowers with Marianne Creatable die.

This card is also being entered into:
craftycardmakers - Digi Plus
crazychallenge. - Shaped Card
lotstodocallenges. - Shaped Card
digidoodleshopsbest. Anything goes

Thanks for looking

Sorry but I can't say much about the stuff  i've used as it's all been in my stash for such a long time now, it has to be over a year as I got this time last year, you know how it is,  the only thing I do know is the backing paper is part of this months members free download at Crafters Companion.

Monochrome - Lilacs

 After a few weeks off  for it's time to get back into crafting again.
CD Sunday Challenge has a  Monochrome theme this week, one of my favourite themes.

Given my love of Purple, I thought I'd use puple/lilacs.  I used the CC Flower Fairies CD and obviously picked the Lavender Fairy. 3 x  backing papers from the same CD and one from a Debbi Moore CD. I also used some lovely purple linen effect mirri card for the layering,the butterflies and parts of the flowers. The butterflies, fairy and stars have been highlighted with a clear star gelly roll pen, although it doesn't show much on the piccy.

JIC Week 16

It's week 16 over at Just Inspirational Challenge. Well i finally made it, right at the last minute, could not get going this week. So I hope you like it.
I used this digi stamp from crafty sentiments which were given to use if we wished, isn't he a sweet snowman.
I framed him with a Clarity Stamp Frame, and embossed it with sparkly Melt Dust, mr Snowy is coloured with ProMarkers, used some papers from my christmas stash pile, I think they were freebies I got a while back, all mounted onto Centura Pearl Card, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment and finished with a twisty bow.

As I haven't been able to post much these past 3 weeks I had a little hunt around to see what other challenges this would be suitable for and am entering it into:
alphabet challenge blog. x-for-xmas
