Silhouette Challenges #17 "3D Fall

Good morning everyone.

It's the time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.

It feels like forever since I posted here but it is only a couple of weeks. We are finally all moved and settling into our new home, it has been a stressful couple of weeks but I am really happy to have a craft room again even if it is smaller than I had before.

Anyhow onto business, this month at Silhouette Challenges we are challenging you to make something that is 3d and fall themed

My grandchildren had asked me to make a Halloween countdown, they are a bit like an advent calendar you would have at Christmas but ghostly instead lol. I have now made what is going to be the background of it, there will be a coffin in front of this and inside it will be cryptic clues letting them know where to find the treat (The coffin will be shown soon). As they are only allowed sweet treats on a Friday the other days will contain non edible treats and messages.

I used numerous files for this but they are svg files that I amassed in my Cricut days. If I find the owner I will edit and give credit.

This is it all opened up, it stands about 10" tall and 18" wide.

It all folds together for easy storing.

Here is a close up of it. 
Card Stock - Lidl
Die Cut Files - Unknown they were svg files that I amassed years ago when I had a cricut machine and didn't keep who they belonged to. If I find whose they were I will edit.
Embossing - Cuttlebug Houndstooth & Woodgrain.
Ink - Ranger Distress Inks

Elisabeth Bell's World August Challenge 'Pretty In Pink'

Good morning all, hopefully blogger is playing ball and you are reading this post. By now we should be all moved, unpacked and waiting for our telephone and internet to be put on in three days time. Let's see if it really happened that way lol.

I was lucky enough to win the July challenge over at Elisabeth Bell World and would like to thank them for my lovely digi images I won as well to say a big thank you to Sebrina who also donated a prize which was wonderful. 

As most of you know I am a huge Elisabeth Bell fan and so just couldn't pass up the offer of my being their guest designer this month. The challenge is 'Pretty In Pink' so all things girlie. I made this card for my daughter who turns 25 at the end of this month. She used to be the most girlie girl you would ever meet until she fell in love with her now husband and they took up all kinds of outdoor pursuits. I used this image as it reminded me of when she was young and would sit on her swing and let her brothers all take it in turns to push her so she didn't have to do any work lol.

My Time To Craft 'Kraft' Challenge

Good morning all. 

I am here today to share my card I made for the new challenge over at My Time To Craft. This week we would like to see you use 'Kraft' on your project either by colouring on it or simply mat and layering. 

I decided to recreate a card I have made a couple of times now and it has been a popular choice by recipients.  I have used a Lili Of The Valley stamp called Christmas Baubles, stamped and then coloured on kraft card stock. A few gems added for the berries and card finished.  

Card Stock - Bazzill 

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Greens - Pine & Holly
Reds - Firebrick, Berry Red & Heat Wave

That's all from me people, pop over and see the other ladies idea's and then get back outside and enjoy this wonderful weather, it may not stay for long!

My Time To Craft 'Paper Piecing' Challenge

Good morning all, it is really sunny here today so looking forward to an afternoon resting in the garden before my trip to Doncaster's Summer Crafting tomorrow.

This fortnight at My Time To Craft we are doing 'Paper Piecing', this is where you use designer papers to colour to all or part of your image instead of your markers or pencils etc. I have used this stamp originally from Sugar Nellie but now available digitally and named 'Sweet n Sassy Hello Sunshine' by Elisabeth Bell. I stamped her out on my white card stock and then stamp just the area's I wanted onto the different scraps of designer paper, this method is great for using up scraps.

6" Square Card Blank - Natalie & Amy's
Card Stock - Bazzill
Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Skin - Apricot, Oatmeal & Blush
Hair - Cocoa, Cinnamon & Tan
Hat Leaves & Flowers - Pressed Leaf, Apple Cider, Sleigh Bell & Earth Yellow

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Elphine House - Rain or Shine

That's all from me, see you again soon.
