BTYD #22 and SSC sketch

Haven't done a LO in a while and I had so much fun doing this and LOVED the way it turned out!

The sketch was this week's challenge on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog, and the theme for the challenge on the Crop til you Drop blog was new beginnings, so I scrapped some pics of my NEW scrap room!

The paper is by 3 bugs in a rug, and I added plenty of doodling with a white gel pen on the black cardstock (bit obssessed with this look at the mo!) The "my" and "space" of the title were cut from the same paper using the Plantin Schoolbook font cartridge on the expression and the "new" was doodled to make it stand out more.

This one I AM on time with! LOL

Another fabby sketch from Di, and this time I used papers and chipboard from the Cloud 9 Design Sorbet range, along with a length of white organza ribbon - a nice easy peasy one!!

Di Hickman December #2

Totally late with this one, but who cares, it's a fab sketch!!

For this one I used the Creative Imaginations Renae's House papers and chipboard and the strip of ribbon was a magazine freebie, thus satisfying the current challenge on Daring Cardmakers.

SSC - Rip up your stash!

Not literally thank goodness! No this was the challenge over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog - to use ripping and tearing on your project.

For this card, I embossed a piece of Bazzill bling Cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder then tore off the bottom edge. The papers and die cut flower are Basic Grey infuse and the bookplate was cut on my expression with the tags, bags, boxes and more cart. I added the sentiment with a white gel pen, then added a couple of crystal brads.

BTYD #'20 and Arty Girlz #14

Over on the Crop til you Drop blog this week, Charli set the challenge to use stitching. Now thankfully it didn't have to be REAL stitching (which I despise!!).

I used Love Elsie Roxie paper (which has faux stitching on) and then stamped some blue bazzill with a zig zag stitch stamp. The "thank you" stamp is by Heidi Swapp.

This also qualifies for this week's Arty Girlz challenge to use a word or words as the focal point on your project.

Scrummy Velvet!

Scrummy Stash Cafe blog set the challenge this week to use material on your card. I made this one using my December ribbon kit from Little Silver hat, which includes this gorgeous black velvet ric rac - I hope that counts as material!!

This also qualifies for this week's Daring Cardmakers dare to use stripes.

Arty Girlz Hand cutting

Here's 2 cards for this challenge! I hand cut the stamped trees (again from my Rusty Pickle Grinchmas stamps) and used the Scrapworks Seasons of Joy papers (they're nearly all gone now!)

Caardvarks - Rickrack challenge

Caardvarks set the challenge to make a card with rick rack on - now this wasn't difficult as I LOVE the stuff!!

Again, using the Scrapworks seasons of joy papers from Scrummy Stash Cafe.

Di Hickman Dec#1

A bit late with this one, as Di's just posted the next sketch! But here it is. I used the Scrapworks Seasons of Joy papers and the bauble stamp is by Rusty Pickle. Scalloped paper frills by Doodelbug.

SSC - colour it in

This weekend's challenge over on the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog was to "colour it in", which meant I just had to drag out my trusty Penny Black snowman stamp! I coloured it in with Brush markers (am rubbish with watercolours!) and used the Scrapworks seasons of joy kit from SSC.

DCM - buttons and bows

Daring Cardmakers little extra this week was to make a card with buttons and bows. Here's my effort using the Scrapworks seasons of joy papers and the chipboard tree is by K&Co.

The power of positive thought!
