Love to craft October inspiration


This is my design card for Love to craft challenge 15 October anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and to enter our challenge.

The roses were foiled and die cut using todo foiling and die cutting. The background card with hearts is an old piece from a Kanban kit long ago, as is the congratulations square. A padded heart, silver ribbons and the Anna Griffin sentiment finish off the card.

Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 10 for October


This is my card for Do-al(l) kreatives challenge 10 for October: Halloween - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope you join in our challenge.

Regular visitors who know me well will understand that I don't normally 'do' halloween, but, as a DT member, I made an exception for this.

I played around with a few digital images (free from a good search), including a dark hallow digital paper by Lozzy, here, fading, shading etc and then printed and added the decoupaged shiny owl with glittered wings mounted on the circle.

CHNC challenge extra for October 2017


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge extra for October 2017 - please click on the link to see the inspirational designs by my team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

Now that we are beginning October, it's time to be a bit more serious about Christmas designs - I hope you will be able to join in our October challenge. ... it can be any creation as long as it's for Christmas and you can enter as many times as you wish.

The background card is from a Hunkydory kit bought long ago and the other elements are from an unknown kit that I'm still dipping into sometimes.

Bugaboo Stamps always generously sponsor my CHNC challenge extra and provide images for the team to use and showcase. The image I've used is Christmas jar, a pre-coloured one. I used papers from my Christmas offcuts box, a couple of felt stockings and the sentiments.The background paper has lovely sparkly snowflakes.
