Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #246 No Patterned Paper


As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme. 

New challenge and one I quite enjoyed designing for.  I decided my card would be related to nature as I have been wanting to use this sentiment stamp. I have been surfing around the web and came upon some cards using this design and decided to give it a try. I used a clear stamp for the grain and butterflies that my friend had and loved the result.

Sentiment: Stampin' Up

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme.

I had a little help from another couple of friends re stamps and layout. Aren't friends the most wonderful things to have! I used magnets to keep the front banner closed. All in all, I am quite pleased with it AND I love learning new things (at least new to me)!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween


   
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #244 Halloween
Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Kim is hosting today's challenge # 244
and the theme is 'Halloween'.

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it follows the Halloween theme.

I used a wooden plague my late husband had made many years ago and painted it black.


The scene was created by cutting out a square piece of cardstock from the Recollections 'blackbird' collection (titled 'glowing orange'). I then adhered the spooky tree (Memory Box 'Grand Willow Tree'), the two paper bats (handmade) , the 2 black zigzaggy border trims ('Spooky Fence' by Cottage Cutz), then to finish it off the round 'moon'   created by cutting out the Spider Fang circle and the 31 from a page of Halloween images I found in my stash. I added half pearls just because.

Happy Halloween everyone!

and the theme is 'Add Some Sparkle'.

 As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme.

I chose die-cuts instead of images and some fabulous paper.   I also added some of the punched out zig-zaggy leftovers from the die-cut tree to the bottom of the card, so no colouring which speeded up the process.

Punch: star (brand unknown)
Die Cuts: Deer, set by Cottage Cutz, Tim Holtz Woodland trees, Snow Die 141482 Thinlets Detailed Floral

A simple card, easy to make and Christmasy.

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'Add a Critter'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the theme.

Ok, add a critter, what kind of critter, fun or serious, real, fantasy or cartoon-like, such was my dilemmas.  I decided to go for cartoon-like with this fun butterfly and cow image ( an old stamp by Stampendous 'Butterfly and Cow'). Two of my great-grandchildren were here and they each worked on a version of it. Fun time  (6 and 4-year-olds).

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #241 Autumn Colours


A birthday card for my older brother. I wanted an image that would reflect the forest area where we grew up and this silhouette stamp seemed to meet the criteria. I must admit there was not a lot of moose seen back in the day as the forests hid a lot of the animals. The more the trees disappeared the more the wildlife was seen.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #237 Dies or Punches


             Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #237 Dies or Punches

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and Jo is hosting today's challenge.

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'Dies or Punches'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the Dies or Punches theme.

I decided to do a wedding/anniversary type card in white, creamy  colours. This was not a good choice as it was practically impossible (for me) to take a presentable photo  (the frustration level was high lol!) and this was as good as it got. I do like the card though.

I used two flower border dies, two leaf dies and for the sentiment a small rectangular die.  The large flower was from a package bought at a local craft store.

Have a great day!

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #236 Anything but a Card. Angela is hosting today's challenge and anything you care to enter is fine as long as it meets the no card theme.




As you can see I chose to make a calendar-notepad holder. I wanted to make one back in January but could not find the calendar anywhere. I happened to be in a Dollar Tree the other day and right before me was one lone 2019 mini calendar, so of course, I bought it. I had to remove some months from the calendar but that's OK. (it now reads June lol!) Just a fun thing to make and I quite like it.

Card Details:
 I used Stampin' Up card stock, some designer paper, a mini calendar and a sticky note pad. The larger embellishment flowers were made from a jar of flower petals I found hidden in my stash. I punched some petals to which I added rhinestone centers and adhered them to the larger flower petals.  I added three more of the small punched petals for added interest and adhered them to die cut leaves I had glued to the background.

                        Do come, join the fun and share your creations with us!

Wow, it is June already! I had my plants out by the Victoria Day May long week-end, the grass is cut, the garden is starting to bloom and my dog and I quite happy about it all  (it was a long winter).  Now if only the forest wild fires would go away, the smoke can be ghastly.
