CCM #246 No Patterned Paper

One of my favourite challenges today at Crafty Cardmakers, No Patterned Paper.

I have made a page in my gorgeous Marlene Mini Journal starting with Distress Oxides in Ripe Persimmon, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade. Which I smooshed onto the page. The background stamps are from Indigo Blu and from AAll & Create’s Janet Klein ‘Lil Magic stamp set. The main image is also Janet Klein, Bird Lover, and the cat comes from her range of stamps, Cat Lover. I coloured the image with copics for the skin and I used my polychromos pencils to colour the rest of her.

I coloured the centre of the stars with Squeezed Lemonade DI and the sentiment I printed on my pc. I used a couple of strips of washi for her to stand on. I have so much washi and forget to use it normally.

DV #214 Favourite Colour Combination

Out challenge today at Dream Valley is to show us your favourite colour combination. We are sponsored by the wonderful Polkadoodles with 3 of their gorgeous digis for the winner. I have used Winnie with Big Balloon for my card.

I chose blue and green for my colour combination. I don’’t know that I have an actual favourite combination but blue and green definitely appeals to me, although as a Child I can remember a saying ‘Blue and Green should never be seen’. But I love it!

I coloured Winnie with copics. The lovely diecut frame is from Spellbinders, S6-004 Card Creator Detailed Scallops, and I also used two of their Borderabilities Curved Borders Set one to create the wavy mat underneath the main focal point.

The little butterflies are from Sara’s Signature Butterfly Collection from Crafters Companion. You can use this die to cut into your card and leave little butterfly apertures but I wanted all the various sized ones instead to use on my card. I used the same paper from the background, also from Polkadoodles from their Posy Collection, to make the butterflies, and I inked through the die before removing it to give a contrast colour. The flowers are from my stash.

CCM #245 Thankful

As today’s is Armistice Day in the UK, our challenge for the next couple of weeks is thankful.

I made my card for my Daughter. She has a lot to put up with my health issues and she always listens patiently to when I need to moan. I would be lost without her.

The butterfly on my card is from Tim Holtz Geo Dies. I die cut the whole thing out of a clarity mask sheet so I would have it for use again, and then using the apeture left behind as a stencil I inked through the butterfly shape with Distress Oxides. I cut the butterfly again in silver sparkly self adhesive film and adhered this to the inked butterfly, and then fussy cut the whole thing out.

The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp. The shaped die matting layers are from a Go Kreate die set, and the glittery enamel dots came from Ali Express! Ebay on crack!!!!

A closer look at the butterfly.

DV #213 All That Glitters

Today at Dream Valley we are sponsored by Dies to Die with a £15 voucher for our ‘All That Glitters’ challenge.

I have used a lovely set of pre-printed pages from Polkadoodles, Posydoodles, which are perfect for that card in a hurry. I diecut them out with dies also from Polkadoodles and added glitter accents to several of the images.

I also fussy cut out some extra elements from other sheets in the set to create 3D elements for my card. Using a scalloped die I created a base and top for an easel card, and used one of the 3D elements as a stopper.
