CCC #39 - No DSP

I have to admit, this fortnights challenge over at Creative Card Crew had me a little bit peaky. I lurrrve my papers! However it turned out to be a whole lot of fun. There were so many options to choose from; embossing, die-cutting, stamping directly onto cardstock, just to name a few. I went with embossing, as I had a beautiful digi-stamp to ink up, that created a scene without needing any fancy background.

Our sponsor for this fortnight is the fabulous Scrapping Center

They have generously donated a $15 gift voucher for a lucky winner!
Here is my card for the challenge. This image is quite a special one, as the lovely Krista over at Saturated Canary designed it specially for Mari, the lovely lady who runs our challenge blog. It was available at a special price, and all proceeds went to Mari's daughter, whose house was destroyed in the terrible Oklahoma cyclones that recently struck. 

We hope you will play along with our challenge! Thanks for stopping by :)

Lime Tart Marker Monday

Welcome to my inaugural post as a designer for Lime Tart. I was so excited to be asked to be a part of this team, it has been a dream of mine for about 2 years.

I am showcasing a card using Copics to create a background for a coloured image. I have used the gorgeous Penny Black Fairy Sweet stamp set, which comes with 6 gorgeous images and a sentiment, making it perfect to create a scene.

You can find all the information about the card, as well as information about the technique over at the Zest Blog.

Have a great week!

Creative Card Crew #38: Metal - charms, brads, pins, etc.

Hello hello! Today's post is for the new challenge over at Creative Card Crew. This fortnight we want to see your creations using metal, think brads, charms, pins, whatever you can imagine, as long as it's metal :)

We are super lucky to have two sponsors for this challenge; Pizzazz Aplenty who stock all of your embellishment needs. They have a special surprise up for grabs!

QKR Stampede are a stamping store, with so many cute images to choose from! They have 5 digis up for grabs.

Here is my card for the challenge:

I have made a criss-cross card. I love making cards that are more than the usual side-fold/tent-fold card. I have used the very cute birdhouse and vine digi for my card.

Thanks for stopping by, we look forward to seeing what you come up with :)
