Anything Goes at CHRISTMAS AT SWEET STAMPIN' CHALLENGE


Hi everyone

I am so delighted to be here today to share my card for  http://christmasatsweetstampinchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/.  Full details can be found by clicking the above link.


As always,  it is the easiest theme ever - Anything Goes Christmas!  and I have used one or two items from Noor Design UK plus some things from my stash.  In fact when I look at this card I realise that the papers, flowers, ribbon and cheesecloth are all from Tracy at Noor.


So, here is what I made.   This time it is a Christmas card with detachable tag. I had some die-cuts already cut so used those.  Because I do not have a craft room I tend to have a session die-cutting, and that is why most of my dies are cut in cream or white. Then I use what I have cut when designing.



And a view showing the detachable tag.  I have decided i quire like this layout so you will probably be seeing more of this style.  It is a layout I used to do some years ago and had clean forgotten about it until recently.  I have slightly changed it this time though.


It would be lovely if you could find time to pop over and see the amazing work of the Design Team, and even better if you were to take part in the Challenge.

As always, thanks for looking,

FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE -

Hi everyone

Today sees the start of another Challenge at http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/


It is Gina's turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Favourite colours '  It actually is not my turn to post, but this is such a lovely Challenge, and as Gina is a good friend of mine I decided to play along.


Well favourite colours?  I do not have firm favourites.  And the colours I favour for cards are different to the colours I like best when it comes to other things.  My overall favourite colour has to be dark Amethyst, and varying shades I think.   But where cards are concerned I do love to see pink and cream, or pink and white.  So this is one of my favorite colour combinations.

I chose several items from my stash, some of which were originally from Wild Orchid Crafts and Noor Design UK.   I have chosen the lovely Vintage shabby style that I so love, but there are no surprises there! lol


  

The image was a freebie found online.

You know how some cards when finished you are more pleased with than others?  Well I am really pleased with how this one has turned out.  It is not often I say that because I always feel very insecure and wonder if they are good enough.  But enough waffle. 

It would be lovely if you had time to pop over and see the Design Team's beautiful inspiration and even better if you fancy joining in with the challenge. (http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ )

FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE - Anything Goes

Hi everyone

Today sees the start of another Challenge at http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/


It is Nikki's turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Anything Goes '.  


I opted to make another paper bag card using items from my stash and a selection of embellishments from Noor Design Uk.





I have used a selection of JOY dies.


Below we have the inside of the card.  You can just make out the opening on the left side for the pocket of the paper bag.  And I have made two pockets inside too:




I feel pretty sure the papers were Lemoncraft House of Roses.

Below we have the reverse side:

Anything Goes at CHRISTMAS AT SWEET STAMPIN'

Hi everyone

I am so delighted to be here today to share my card for  http://christmasatsweetstampinchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/.  Full details can be found by clicking the above link.

Yes, again  it is the easiest theme ever - Anything Goes Christmas!  and I have used one or two items from Noor Design UK plus some things from my stash.

So, here is what I made.  I chose to make another Christmas card in the Vintage shabby style I so love but this time I made a co-ordinating Gift bag too.  I was going through my older stash and came across these two lovely images that a friend stamped and coloured for me some years ago now.  It is from a Penny Black stamp, I still love those Penny Black stamps you know! Why these images never got used I do not know because I love them.








It would be lovely if you could find time to pop over and see the amazing work of the Design Team, and even better if you were to take part in the Challenge.

FUSSY & FANCY CHALLENGE - Dies and Punches

Hi everyone

Today sees the start of another Challenge at http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/


It is Nasthalie's turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Dies and punches '.  


I opted to make a card with two inside pockets.  This is very much another card made from my stash.   I forgot to write down the name of the papers used but from memory I think they were Lemoncraft.  I must admit I love Lemoncraft papers! 





The dies used were a Spellbinders Window die and JOY dies which I purchased from Noor Design UK and most of the embellishments were from Noor Design Uk too.


And the inside, which shows two pockets:






It would be lovely if you had time to pop over and see the Design Team's beautiful inspiration and even better if you fancy joining in with the challenge. (http://fussyandfancychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ )

BOTTLE TAG

Hi everyone,

Yes another mid week post.  And this time I have a bottle tag to share.  I saw something the other day which just inspired me into making this type of tag.  

I started off with a Dutch Doobadoo template (from Noor Design UK) for the shape and went from there.


It is very much a bottle tag made from items from my stash but the flowers were from Noor Design UK. The papers were a gift to me, they are predominantly white and so useful for occasion creations.



As always, thanks for looking,
