FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Things with Wings

Hi everyone

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


The Challenge is being hosted by Julie  The chosen theme is 'Things with Wings'.  My first thoughts were Fairies.  I love Fairy images!  But then I saw this image, and well the rest is history.  The papers are either Maja or Pion.  I am unsure which.




Again, I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts, Crafteezee (formerly Noor Design UK) and also from my stash.  The card stand is a JOY die.  I purchased this from cuddly Buddly.

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/ )

As always, thanks for looking,

Hi everyone

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


The Challenge is being hosted by ME!    My chosen theme is 'White on white with a splash of colour'.  Basically just predominently white with a splash of colour.  Skin and hair colours are accepted too.

Well, still on my roll of celebration cards here is what I came up with:  I have always loved this image from LOTV.  It is definitely my 'go to' image.

FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Anything Goes!

Hi everyone

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


The Challenge is being hosted by Andrea.  The chosen theme is 'Anything Goes'.  Well what could be easier than that!  I have been going through a phase of building up my stock of celebration cards.  Ones that are so useful to have made.  Occasions like Engagement for instance often come right out of the blue, so it is good to have a suitable card made ready.  I started off looking through my images.  I have always loved this one created by Sylvia Zet.  This comes in the form of a pre coloured Hobby House topper.  So useful!

VINTAGE LADY


Hi everyone

I am just touching base with a card I made recently but first would like to apologise for it being quiet on my Blog recently.  I will be continuing to post my Design Team cards but it may go a little quiet, apart from that, for a couple of months.  Rest assured I will be back though!

However, I would like to thank you all for your lovely comments I have been receiving.  I do appreciate them.  Thank you!



So, here is my card with one of my favourite images.   I have used mainly items from Crafteezee (formerly Noor Design UK) and Wild Orchid Crafts.  Anything else came from my stash.

I hope you are all enjoying the Summer.

Until next time

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

Here is the card I made.  Instead of using papers I used embossed card and patterned paper for the insertion panel.


This is a very different style for me.  It took a little planning, but I am actually pleased with the result.  It looks so much different and  better in real life.



The card measures roughly 6 inches high by 5.5 inches wide.  I measured 1.5 and 3 cm from the top left side edge and 7.5 cm up from the bottom right side edge.  I then cut diagonally from the 3 cm mark to the bottom right hand corner.  And then again from the 1.5 cm mark to the 7.5 cm mark.  That gave me three panels.  The bottom and top panels are secured with foam pads.   I had seen this done online somewhere, I am not sure where, but once I worked out the measurements it was quite straight forward.  In fact I got quite hooked on making these! 


Again I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts. Noor Design UK and my stash.

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 FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Flowers, Lace and Pearls

Hi everyone

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


It is my turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Flowers, Lace and Pearls'.  Well, I thought we are a Fussy & Fancy Challenge so what better embellishments to use!  


I have tried something different for me.  At the latter part of last year I looked at lots of tutorials online to make little pretty lacy dresses.  Then I went ahead and did my own thing.  I purchased a lovely Basque die, and tried making them in this way too.  So you will be seeing dresses galore on cards in the forthcoming weeks! lol  I did get a bit carried away!

This time I only made two!  This is good for me! lol  So I will show you the second one next week.  For this occasion I went pretty focusing on pink.  Again, I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and also from my stash.

So here we have my card using Flowers, lace and pearls:

Hi everyone

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


It is Andrea's turn to host this challenge and the chosen theme is 'Distress it'.  What a lovely theme, and this made me sit down and do something different for me.  It is ages since I have done distressing, and I love the effect so thank you Andrea for giving me a nudge in the right direction.


I opted to try a card using no image.  As I said, something a bit different for me.  
 Again, I have used items from Wild Orchid Crafts, Noor Design UK and also from my stash.



The beautiful papers are Lemoncraft and the pack is called 'House of Flowers'.

I loved doing this design and have a couple more cards to share made in the same way next week.

Here is a  a card I made using the distressing technique, and trying my hand at another no image card.  Instead of using papers I used embossed card and added Gilding Polish.


I think this has a Christmassy feel to it.  Probably because when I made it I was 'thinking Christmas' at the end of last year.
