Everybody Art - wedding

Hello everyone :o)

Over at Everybody Art this week, our challenge is 'wedding'.... I don't actually need any wedding cards at the moment, so I've made a general one that I can personalise later if needed.

Items Used
Stamp - Congratulations set (retired) - LOTV
Stamped in Stampin' Up ink in Baked Brown Sugar
Papers - LOTV (retired)
Creative Dies Plus Stitched & Pierced Nesting Squares - Craft Stash
Congratulations stamp - DigiStamp Boutique (now closed)
Memory Box Precious Hearts die (cut up)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cute Card Thursday - celebrate
Crafty Catz - anything goes + optional spring
Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Sorry things are a bit quiet on my blog at the moment, it's such a busy time with Dex's SATs and Y6 events, plus Morgan's GCSE preparation and Y11 meetings, plus basketball games/ training, plus Morgan's college events (he's been accepted on a sporting excellence course, specialising in basketball... he's hoping to add a psychology A level to that too if he gets the grades he needs).  So, yeah... it's busy!!  I'm also doing a course myself, that I've wanted to do for ages, so things are likely to stay fairly quiet on my blog for a while.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge GDT

Hello :o)

I'm a bit late posting this, but I'm Guest DT over at CRAFT Challenge this week... there's a fab sketch to follow.

I've used a super cute image from the sponsor Sweet n Sassy Stamps - isn't he sweet?  I've used papers from an old Basic Grey pad, the sentiment is from Digi Stamp Boutique (now closed) and the little tab die is MFT die-namics... finished off with a sparkly Doodlebug enamel dot.  Oh, and a little Paper Smooches dotty border stamp that I added to the coffee cup label.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Kitty Bee - animals
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - anything goes with a critter
Little Red Wagon - lions & lambs (and other animals)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Everybody Art - anniversary

Hello everyone :o)

Our challenge over at Everybody Art this week is 'anniversary'.

I fancied making something a bit different for a change, so I got out my neglected alcohol inks (bought years ago, used a few times, forgotten about...) and some distress inks and had a play.  I can't seem to get the photo to show the true colours for some reason, but the panel and the background match better in real life.

Items Used
Stamp - Statement Stamps 'Congratulations' - LOTV (retired)
Stamped in Archival Ink in Jet Black
Alcohol Inks in Mountain Rose, Sunset Orange, Peach Bellini + tiny bit of Gold
Inkssentials Gloss Paper
Distress Inks in Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon & Frayed Burlap
White textured card - Papermill Direct
Anniversary stamp - Wplus9 Basic Banners
Penny Black Wavy Stitch Edges die
Whimsy corner die
Doodlebug enamel heart + Craft Consortium enamel dot

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Wednesday - anything goes
Inkspirational - use your stash
Mix It Up - anything goes + optional inked background
MAWTT - sentiment only, no image

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
