Hello Friend

Hello once again. The Alphabet Challenge has started a new challenge, the letter is ‘F’ and the theme is ‘Friendship’. Deborah is hosting this time round. Here is my card:

I went with a two colour combination for this card for some reason. I didn’t plan it that way, but it certainly came out that way.

I layered some patterned paper with a matching colour of card, and added some MFT stitched flowers with clear gems in the centre of each. I did toy with the idea of some leaves but decided against it.

The words are from Concord & 9th, die cut and layered 4 times to create some dimension.

I hope you can join us with your creations following our theme – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Creative Fingers Challenge anything goes

Cards Galore Challengeanything goes

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge anything goes with patterned paper

Hello. I have a card to share I made today, as I’m working the next couple of days, and may not have time to craft.

I used a newer die set from MFT called ‘Stitched Garden Dynamics‘, and just played with die-cutting and glue sticking.

I also used a stencil for the bottom edge, from Time For Tea Designs, to add some added interest that wasn’t dimensional. I did toy with the idea of die-cutting some grass, but in the end went for the stencil. I think it gives a more CAS look.

I have received three backdrops to enable me to take better pictures of my cards – though the lighting and additional elements are what I;m going to be working on from here – but these are the other two backdrops I received:

I like them all, and it took me a while to decide to use the dark wood, as my card is so bright and light. I will be working on adding some decorative elements to my photos too – watch this space!
