My Time To Craft 'Get Krafty' Challenge

Good morning all and Happy Easter, I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend. 

It is time for a new challenge at My Time To Craft and Crafty Calendar Challenge and I decided to create one card to fit both. At My Time To Craft we would like to see you use 'Kraft' on your project and at Crafty Calendar Challenge we are 'Adding Sentiments'

For my card I used one of my old faithful Elisabeth Bell stamps called 'Willow Dressing Up', this is a retired image at the moment but it will hopefully be back soon now that Elisabeth has decided to produce the stamps herself. I teamed my image with papers from First Edition 'Isabelle' collection which I love for the krafty colours it has. A bit of lace, a few pearls and it was done.

Silhouette Challenge 'Use A File In A Completely Different Way' Challenge

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is  (Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended).

Do you ever look at a design you have brought and think 'I'm sure I could make something else with it' well that is exactly what we want you to do this month. 

I started with this cut file shown below and then ungrouped them and remove all except for the long narrow ornament on the right. I then rotated several copies of this and then simply arranged them to get my flower shape. I used the whole in the middle as a guide to line them up and then selected all and welded. A flower was made, I copied this several times and adjusted the size to get my layers.

Here is my card I made with that flower:-

Natalie & Amy's 'Frame It' Challenge

Good morning all, it is time for another challenge over at Natalie & Amy's and this month we would like for you to 'Frame It' so create a frame around your image or the focal point of your project.

For my card I used this adorable image from Crafter's Companion Moonbeam Meadow range called 'Time For Tea'. It was coloured with a mixture of pens and pencils then the teapot had a coating of Glossy Accents added to it. The gloss has cracked in places and although I don't know why it has done this it does work for a china look lol. I created my frame by cutting four layers of the two largest die's in this set and gluing them together, I then cut the image from the second largest so it fir snuggly in the frame. I machine stitched all the layers together as well as the ribbon, this is normally a chore for me but I actually enjoyed doing it.

My Time To Craft 'Silhouette Image' Challenge

Good morning all, it is time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft and this week we are all about 'Silhouette's', this can be made with a stamped image, using inks or as I have using a die cut.

I love this image and have wanted to put it on a glass block with fairy lights inside for my youngest granddaughter Mia but mum hasn't decided what colour she wants her new room to be yet. I simply added some little iridescent rhinestone's and this great freebie sentiment from Create With TLC and the job was finished.

Short and sweet I'm afraid as I am suffering from bad headaches at the moment, I will hopefully be back to edit soon.

My Time To Craft 'For A Special Lady' Challenge

Good afternoon all, it is time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft and this week we are challenging you to make a 'Mother's Day' project. 

As soon as I saw this card in the Silhouette store I knew it was going to be used but I wanted to put vellum behind the cut and the blue card stock on the verse side. However it just looked wrong, I am not sure if it was the colour or the fact that that side of the card just seemed to disappear. Anyhow I decided on putting the blue card stock behind the cut and on the verse side, I added a few gems to finish it off. This would be a great card to make for those who sell them. The card is 5" x 7".

Card Stock - White Limetree Crafts & Blue Lidl
Gems - Stash
