Crafty Cardmakers Cut It Out Challenge


Hi, today is the start of the new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More, which is 'Cut It Out'. So this time we want to see cards where you have used Die cuts and, or Punches. 

For the main focal point on my card I used a die from Crafts- Too called 'Merry Christmas Angels'. I cut the image twice from Kraft card and cut the sentiment free from the ornaments before adding gold gilding wax. I then cut the angels from white card and added Stickles to the wings and coloured their faces and hair with Copic markers. I cut the dresses and bauble from scraps of different patterned papers, then stuck them on top of the Kraft base. I cut the white frame and it's Kraft card mat using my Silhouette and an image from the Silhouette Store. I then threaded two strands of twine through the small square holes in the frame. The backing papers I have used came free with the Molly Blooms 'Christmas Carnival' Magazine, as did the buttons. I used a gold gel pen to add faux stitching around the white frame and details to the angels and bauble. More Stickles to finish, along with some pearls and bows from my stash. The card is 6 x 6 inches. 

I hope you like my take on this challenge and please take the time to check out my fellow Design Team members blogs as they are packed full of inspiration and creativity. Also, this weeks prize is the super stamp from Hobby Art and a gift certificate from Di's Digis.

Cars


Hi, today I have a card to share with you that I have made using my Silhouette. The car was a cutting file that I bought from the Silhouette Store and the clouds came as a free shape with the Silhouette Portrait machine and I used one of the fonts from my computer to cut the name and number. I enlarged one of the card wheels, cut it, them ran it through the 'Heavy Duty' embossing folder from Couture Creations to create a tyre effect. The 'Happy Birthday' stamp is from Woodware and I hand cut the Traffic lights and the road. The papers I have used are from My Minds Eye 'Lime Twist- Out Of The Blue' 6 x 6 paper pad and for the die cuts I have Papermania coloured card stock. I have also added some Glossy Accents to the cars, traffic lights and number. The finished card measures 6 1/2 x 61/2 inches.

Three Christmas Owls


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that once again uses an image from a Hobby House Art Pad. This image is from the 'Magic Of Christmas' pad by Daisy Mae Draws and has been coloured with Copic markers and a white gel pen. I have also added some Silver Gilding Flake and Glossy Accents. The background papers came free with an issue of the Papercrafter Magazine and some red Bazzill card stock. The sentiment came with the Molly Blooms 'Christmas Carnival' magazine and has been stamped with Black Archival Ink. The holly and star embellishments are metal and came with an old Hot Off The Press card making kit. The star was originally gold so I covered it with Tacky Glue and added Silver Gilding Flakes to make it match the stars on the image. The gems,ribbons and glitter were from my stash. The card is 6 x 6 inches.

Crafty Cardmakers and More It's Only Words Challenge


Hi, I am back today with a card that I have made for the new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More. The challenge this time is 'It's Only Words', which means that the sentiment has to be a main focus on your design.

I have chosen to make a Halloween style card for this challenge. I cut the spiders web using my Silhouette from black card, then applied some crystal glitter. The text stamp has been stamped with Archival black ink onto some patterned paper that I cut to the same size as the middle of the web. I then applied some more glitter to the edges and some glossy accents to the centre. The orange backing paper is from K and Company's Que Sera Sera paper pad and has been embossed with the 'Ornate Diamonds' embossing folder from Couture Creations. The purple backing layer had been made using 'Dusty Concorde' Distress Ink and Pearl Mist Spay. The flowers have been made using a Tonic 'Petal Pairs' punch and some Marianne Designs dies and 'Rusty Hinge' and 'Dusty Concorde' Distress Ink. The die cut leaves have been cut using a die from Crafts- Too. I have added some metal leaves that I have coloured green, a silver key to which I have added some gems and a bottle of Purple Potion that has been made using Acrylic paint, Glossy Accents and Glitter. The spider is an embellishment by Tim Holtz that I have added some Silver gilding wax to. I have also added a home made hat pin, a 'fanged mouth' charm, black lace, orange skull ribbon, some black pearls and just a few purple gems on sticks from my stash.

I hope you like my creation and thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Warm Winter Wishes


Hi, today I have a card to share with you using a stamp from Inkadinkado. I stamped the image and coloured it with Copic Markers before adding Glossy Accents to the eyes, holly leaves and carrot nose. The background paper I used is from K and Company. I made some texture paste using a tutorial by Pamellia Johnson, which can be found Here, and spread it through a Tim Holtz 'Honeycomb' stencil. The recipe for the home made texture paste is by far the best that I have tried so please pop on over and take a look for yourself as the cards and projects there are amazing. The ornate frame was cut from white card on my Silhouette and sprayed with Pearl Mist Spray. The Kraft card base was also cut using my Silhouette and edged with clear glitter. I have also made a Poinsettia and Holly leaves using a die set from Crafts- Too from Kraft Core card stock, to which I added even more texture paste. I also added more texture paste to the edge of the image and to the felt and metal snowflake embellishments. I finished the card with some lace and pearls from my stash, which I inserted underneath the Snowman. The card is 8 x 8 inches.
