CCM Challenge 37 and a Sneaky Peek from Sheena

Hi everyone. Sorry I have been absent since my last post for CCM back in December. Boy what a busy time of year. Christmas, my birthday, New Year and I have also been busy beavering away with some new samples for the lovely Sheena Douglass, using her latest range!

I have been double sneaky with my first sneaky peek as it is also my first card for Crafty Cardmakers’ new year, Challenge 37 – Use red and a die cut. A nice simple challenge to start off the new year.

We are being sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts who are offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend in their store.

Now onto the card……. oh you are so not going to believe the range, which is a little different to Sheena’s usual style, but nonetheless gorgeous. I am thrilled to be the first of Sheena’s team to be debuting the first of these stamps which is called Time Flies. It’s an A6 stamp sheet, with the main image which you can see below on my card, a sentiment, also on my card and some dandelion images, which I have not used here, but would make great backgrounds, or additions to the main image.

I think this little boy is so cute and I have enjoyed coming up with ideas for this little fella and the other stamps which will be released on 15th January on Sheena’s shows on Create and Craft TV at 12 noon and 3pm.

For this card I have used Basic Grey’s Curio paper pad for the BP, and the die cut element is a nestie which I cut the centre out of so that my image could be framed, rather than just layered onto it. To tie in with the red theme I placed the cut out area from the black frame over the image and inkdusted with barn door and fired brick DIs around the edge so that it would show red through the frame once assembled.

The little chap has been coloured in with Lyra Acquacolours. An organza ribbon, overlaid with a picot edge ribbon, complete the card.

I shall be sneaking a new peek each day this week, so I hope to see you back here then.
