Creative Card Crew #109 CAS

We have a great theme for this fortnight's challenge at Creative Card Crew this fortnight; Clean & Simple (CAS).

Imagine That are our fab sponsors, and have a great prize of 3 digis for the winner of this challenge.

Here is my card, using one of the images from the gorgeous Fuschia & Hummingbird set

To keep with the CAS theme, all I have done is stamp a Stampin' Up! sentiment, added a few rhinestones and mounted onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock.
I hope you will join in with us! Have a great week :)

Crafty Boots Challenges - MID CHALLENGE REMINDER 'Easter'

Well, I did it! A very basic first attempt, but an attempt nevertheless. I managed to put together a cute, little punch art gift box for our mid challenge reminder at Crafty Boots Challenges.

I adapted this box from a box I found on Pinterest. I can't link to the Pinterest post, but I can go one better and link directly to the website where I found basic instructions for the punch art bunny. Head over here and show the talented Sharon some bloggy love! 
Materials used are all Stampin' Up except where specified:
Dies: Fry Box, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small
Punches: Word Window, Small Oval, Bow Builder
Alphas: American Crafts
Markers: Blushing Bride, Copic Multi-liner
DP: 2013-2015 In-Colour DSP
Cardstock: Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Blushing Bride

Crafty Boots Challenges - Easter

We have a really spiffy challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges this fortnight; Easter!

I have made two projects this week, and am hoping to have a play with punch/die cut art for the mid-challenge reminder.

Here are this week's projects:

My first card is pretty simple, I found my inspiration on Pinterest. I have used some scraps of Kaisercraft papers to make the eggs and butterfly. The dies are Spellbinders Small Ovals, and Stampin' Up! Butterfly framelits. The sentiment has been made using some alphas, and cardstock is Stampin' Up! Baked Brown Sugar.

For my second card, I have made an easel card. Cardstock is Stampin'  Up! So Saffron and Whisper White. I have zero idea where the papers come from, I want to say Echo Park though, (maybe?). I have used Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Large Ovals, Small Ovals. The stamp set is Stampin' Up! Easter Blossoms, inks used are Stampin' Up! So Saffron, Strawberry Slush. The sentiment was punched using Stampin' Up! Decorative Label punch.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back next week for the mid-challenge reminder :)

Creative Card Crew - #108 Chicks

We have another fab challenge this fortnight at Creative Card Crew; add "chicks" to your card!

A Day For Daisies is our awesome sponsor, and I was lucky enough to play with Birds for Bree

I have coloured my image with Copics. I have no idea what the paper is, I think maybe Echo Park? The dies used are La La Land, and Magnolia Doohickey. The sentiment was stamped with a freebie from a magazine. I have finished the card off with some liquid pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Boots Challenges - MID CHALLENGE REMINDER Something for the lady

This challenge was such a fun one for me, although I encountered the all-too-frequent problem of "too many options, where to begin?!". I started with one of the many images I have been practicing water-colouring, and decided to go from there.

I have been practicing my water-colouring lately. I still have a long way to go, but I finally plucked up the confidence to put one of the images onto a card. The image is "Daisy"from Kaszazz. The cardstock is Stampin' Up! Raspberry Ripple (long-retired). The paper is (I think) Echo Park - I really should keep the selvedge of my papers, woops! I have inked the edges of the image with Distress Ink Iced Spruce and Black Soot. The sentiment and punches are all Stampin' Up! and I have finished off the card with Liquid Pearls. I found all my neglected Liquid Pearls and embossing powders, so I'm trying to use them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
