‘C’ for Coffee or Chocolate

Hello. The Alphabet Challenge has started a new challenge, beginning with the letter ‘C’ – and Rachelle has chosen the theme of ‘coffee and/or chocolate’.

Here is my card:

I was going to go with a one layer card – but I couldn’t figure out how to mask the back of each cup to allow them to look like they were nesting inside each other.

So, I stamped them each separately, die cut them, then added a little cut into the top rim and nestled the next cup into that cut.

I chose to leave the flowers on the coffee pot un-coloured, and kept the card itself CAS.

I hope you can come and join us with your coffee and/or chocolate creations. xx

Welcome To The Neighbourhood

Hello there. Cardz 4 Galz is starting a new challenge with a new theme. This time, we want to see your ‘New Beginnings’ creations. Think new home, baby, marriage – anything which would fit our theme and kinda girlie….

Here is my card:

I went with girlie colours and a neighbourhood (no apologies for the UK spelling) welcome banner.

Another slimline card so I could get everything on there I wanted!

The MFT airplane was constructed using yellow and a deep red/pink – which took me a little while. Lots of pieces, but once I figured out where each went – easy – just be careful of any glue squishing out!

The houses border is from Simon Says Stamp, outline in brown amalgam ink as I wasn’t sure if I was going to Copic colour them……I decided not to and let the colourful plane be the centre of attention.

The sentiment is stamped, cut to shape a banner, then two dark pieces of thread to act as the attachment to the plane.

The clouds were just sitting there from die-cutting the plane – so added for some additional interest and fun.

I hope you can come and join us – and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx

Snowflake Joy

Hello there. A new challenge has started at ABC Christmas Challenge, and this time we want to see your creations with the following themes:

‘J’ for Jewels, and/or ‘K’ for Kids

don’t forget it has to be Christmas or festive related too

I decided to go ‘J’ for Jewels:

On the grey card base I placed snowflake patterned card from my stash – I like the muted snowflake pattern here.

The snowflakes are from Simon Says Stamp, as is the word ‘Joy’ and die cut out of some very, very glitters blue and silver card stock. The hardest part about this was the placement of the snowflakes – but once I got my head around having them slightly off the card – it came together quite well.

I have some glittery jewels, which I stuck down on the snowflakes and the middle of the word ‘Joy’ – something I have it my stash and don’t really think about using – so many sticky jewels…..so many!

I hope you can come and join us with your creations following our themes – I look forward to seeing what you create. xx

Bouncy Fun and Games

Hello there. Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge has started for the month of May. The them this time is ‘Fun and Games’. Here is my card:

I went with another interactive card – someone will have to stop me soon! Even though there are some layers to this, I still feel it is CAS. It took me a while to figure this out, but I love the outcome – very much fun and playful.

The pull tab mechanism is from Heffy Doodle, using the card stock from Concord & 9th. The MFT images were stamped, cut using the matching dies, then coloured with Copics.

I hope you can come and join us with your CAS fun and games creations – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
