New Challenge ……That Craft Place….

Good Morning Girls!

What a fabulous weekend so far and wasn’t yesterdays weather just spectacular? I spent most of my day in the city but I was around for sunrise and sunset and both were beautiful!  Why was I up that early?  I was taking my youngest son to catch a flight to the Channel Islands where he and a couple of other Sea Cadets are going to be sailing a yacht back to Falmouth! What a totally exciting way to spend half term! I am so envious!

Okay – onto the challenge for this time….must use punches and dies….here is my project…Punches and Dies

I punched out 1 1/2inch circles and turned them into the lily type flowers, I then punched out 1 3/4 inch scallop circles and curled them into the rose type flowers. My dies cuts were made with Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and Spellbinders Butterfly corner. The green leaves were just hand cut and folded and shaped with my bone folder. Lisa and Lynn over at That Craft Place can help you with any of these supplies and many more so you can take part in the challenge  – share your projects and show us what you have made with your Punches and Dies….

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

 

All the little children…..

So the challenge this time is a Card for a Child being hosted by the lovely Trudie!   This was a toughie for me as within my family my children are no longer little – way past the cutesy cards and now only wanting those with a comedy value or some clever popular culture reference! And among my wider family, we are only just beginning to have children – well babies – start to arrive. Mostly we have boys. Lots of boys. So I thought maybe a girly card and found this fabulous stamp by Saturated Canary who also happen to be our sponsors this time around! Yippee –  cos I love Krista’s designs!

The pink card is Primrose Petals and the ribbon is Pink Pirouette two tone ribbon both from Stampin up. The Background paper, the fantastic Spellbinders die (I think it is Lace Doily Motifs) and my favourite Promarkers ( the Spring/Summer Limited Edition Collection) all came from That Craft Place – thank you Lisa! Love everything I get in my Happy Post!

I love making cards and am currently trying some new techniques which I will hopefully share with you very soon! Until then….remember to stamp your place in the world! xxxx

Travelling Colours…..

As you know I have been asked to join a design team over at That Craft Place challenge blog…I hope you don’t mind but I wanted to share with you post for this over at my sister blog: Travelling Colours. here it is….

This is my first ‘That Craft Place’ design team project and I am so excited to have been chosen to be part of the design team. It is a daunting project with so many talented people around and so many different aspects to crafting to be having a go at but here goes …. and I truly hope you like it.  Whilst I have made this card specifically for the challenge – which is ANYTHING GOES by the way!!! – I had already spotted this image somewhere else and loved but thought I might have to wait until the winter months came back around to use it. One of my favourite things about crafting is the colouring in – I like lots of different media for this but my current favourite is marker pens…
