THINKING OF YOU HANGLAR

Its the dreaded school holidays and I had the usual 'I'm bored' from Seren on the first day lol!  I went to work yesterday so my mom came to babysit and today its the local play scheme run by Seren's school.  Seren is back there tomorrow then my mom is coming back around on Friday - oh my its all go lol!


Anyway back to my creation which I have made for the lovely challenge over on Lovely-Haenglar-Only which is Embossing and also I followed the lovely sketch over on Sketch 'n' Stash.



I used one of my Hanglar stamps from kit 11 and its already over 6 months old!  I coloured her in promarkers, cut out with my plain circular nestie and added some purple chalk around the edges.  The embossed cardstock is called Leaf Trails from Kanban and the dp used are from Lap of Luxury Designer Paper Series from Stampin Up.  The purple cardstock is also from SU called Concord Crush.  I used my SU scallop circle punch for the piecing on the sentiment which is from Hanglar.  The flowers are all from wildorchidcrafts and the pink gems are from my stash.

ABC CHRISTMAS DT CARD - O is for Old Stamp

Hi to you all and another week over on ABC Christmas Challenge which I am hosting.  The theme is O is for Old Stamp which we would love to see you use an image that is over a year old. 


Some sad news as this will be the last time I will be hosting as I have decided to stand down from the fantastic DT.  I found it really hard to make the decision but have thoroughly enjoyed my time being an inspiration to you all.


We are being sponsored by Wild Rose Studio who have let us use some of their old stamps which are over a year old and who are offering the winner 2 stamps of their choice from their online store.






Here is my final DT creation:-



I have used Sam with Stocking which is available from Wild Rose Studio and coloured in with promarkers and stickles and cut out with my oval nestie.  The red cardstock used is Real Red from Stampin Up.  The red flower dp is called Very Merry Wrap The Presents and the green text dp is called Polar Expressions which has been pieced onto Olive Green cardstock also from SU.  The ribbon was in my stash.  The flowers were punched and embossed with my Nellie Snellen Poinsietta punch with brads added to the centres from my stash.  Square red gems were sent to me in a winning package from Jacque.


I do hope you will pop over to the rest of the DT and see their gorgeous creations.

MAGICAL MONDAY DT CARD - Use some Texture

I have had a really quiet weekend except for going to my nephews 9th birthday party on Saturday as Seren was with her daddy all weekend.


Our challenge over on Magical Monday is based on Textures which we want to see 2 or more textures used on a creation.  We are also being joined by 2 Guest Design Team Members Sande and Marion.



I used one of my LOTV fairy images and coloured her in with promarkers and glitter glue on her wings.  I then cut out with circular nestie and pieced it onto a scallop circle cut out of Regal Rose cardstock from SU.  The dp is a sheet from Papermania Rose Garden paper pack and the circle embossed card is from Kanban.  I added lace from my stash and added adhesive pearls.  The flowers I made myself following a tuturial which I have posted about in a later post.

YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND

Decided to get another card done this week and this time I have followed the lovely sketch over on Totally Gorjuss and the colour theme over on Lovely Haenglar Only which is brown, cream and blue.



I have used one my sitting down Hanglar stamps, coloured her in with promarkers and cut out with my oval nestie mounted onto a scallop shaped nestie diecut.  The blue cardstock is Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla both from Stampin Up.  The dp is also a selection from Bella Bleu Designer Series also from SU.  The ribbon is from my stash and adhesive pearls are from Hobbyhouse.  Flowers from wildorchidcrafts and sentiment is from Magnolia.



RESTLESS THOUGHTS

After a really horrible morning with heavy rain it has now dried up and the sun is making an appearance - don't think its going to last though as thunderstorms are predicted for later :-(


I have decided to make a card for the challenge over on Sweetpea Stampers which has a theme of wings and followed the lovely sketch over on Sunday Sketch and Stamp.



I have used my Restless Thoughts image created by Ching-Chou Kuik and coloured in with promarkers and Sakura glitter pens on her wings.  I then shaped the edges with my X-cut punch.  The cardstock used is from the Bazzill range called Bling Feather Boa and the dp is a sheet from Nitwit Collections Essentials Butterfly Kisses range called Butterflies.  The ribbon and butterfly are both from Hobbycraft, the flowers are Prima Daisy Dreams and the sentiment was part of a sentiment stamp set sent to me from my friend Amy.

A BIT OF VINTAGE BOUTIQUE

It seems to have been ages that I have created a card for the challenge over on The Sugar Bowl so thought I would have to give their latest challenge a go as the theme is 'make your own flowers'.  I'd recently found a lovely tuturial on You Tube by Pinkaboo6691 to make some scunched up flowers.  They in turn got the idea from Dawn over on dawnsstampingthoughts.net.  This is what I came up with:-



The image I have used is from  Simply Sassy called Vintage Boutique which I coloured in with my promarkers, added brown chalk around the edge and cut out with my Labels Eight nestability.  The dp used is from DCWV The Linen Closet Stack.  I used my Martha Stewart Arches punch and added beige organza ribbon from my stash.  For the flowers I used the same dp.  Fern punched out with my Martha Stewart punch and rhinestones from Treasures by Shabby Chic.
