Crafty Boots mid-challenge reminder: Use a sentiment

Would you believe, I made it back for a mid-challenge reminder for Crafty Boots Challenges?!

Here I have used my absolute favourite image from A Day For Daisies, Pearls in my hair. I have coloured her in a monochromatic colour scheme with my Copics. All edges have been distressed and inked using DI Iced Spruce, the papers are Kaisercraft Timeless (black and white), and I have used Stampin' Up! basic pearls in her hair, and the Basic Rhinestones in the corners. I have used Glossy Accents in the corners of the image, and sprinkled some silver glitter on it to stick. The sentiment is from American Crafts (some stickers).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge

A Day For Daisies - Use Glitter

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you get a chance to play along. Just a little heads up, you will want to pop back next week for our challenge as well; it was my turn to pick, and it's a doozy! ;)

Creative Card Crew - challenge 81 Birthday

Hi! I'm back with a post for Creative Card Crew. This fortnight we are asking for birthday projects. We have a fab sponsor for the challenge

Prize: 3 Digi images
Here is my card for the challenge
I have used the super cute pup image. This little pup looks like my new furbaby so I couldn't resist in colouring her up!
I have used Happiest of Birthdays and Stazon to create a background on kraft cardstock, and finished off with some purple twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi, and welcome back for another Crafty Boots challenge! Our theme this fortnight is to use a sentiment. Nice and easy, right? Here is my card for the challenge

Stamps are owl from Punch Bunch, and Happiest of Birthdays (both old, retired sets), and the new bow builder punch has been used with Strawberry Slush DSP.

I can't wait to see what you create!

Crafty Boots - Hearts and valentines MID CHALLENGE REMINDER

I am embarrassingly late posting this project for our Crafty Boots Valentines/Hearts challenge. Unfortunately back-to-school preparations for two of my children took up most of my time and energy last week.

Here is my card

Please excuse the poor lighting here, our summer has been a strange one this year; I have had to whip out the trackie pants and jumpers on a few occasions!

This card features my absolute favourite paper stack; Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime. It's from the 12x12 pad, which included this lovely Postcard diecut. I LOVE postcards, and this one just seems so romantic :)

I have used my Stampin'  Up! Triple heart punch and Pistachio Pudding cardstock, some pearls, and punched the sentiment using the Stampin' Up! Modern Label punch and Word Window Punch. The sentiment itself is from the Stampin'  Up! Nursery Necessities stamp set. I have tried to keep it more vintage, rather than cutesy, so I can give it to my hubby for Valentine's Day.

I do hope you will get a chance to play along, it is such a great challenge, and just in time for Valentine's day :)
