Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 133

This time at Crafty Cardmakers and More our challenge is to use stripes! Other than that, your project can be anything you like.

I chose to make a card for my son's birthday.

The stripy paper comes from the Joanna Sheen Thomas Kinkaid CDRom. I cut it using a Sizzix grid die to make a jazzy background, then used a little more to make the cake case for the Marianne fairy cake die. I finished with a computer generated sentiment.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar where anything goes,
Simply Create Too where anything goes
Sister Act where anything goes,
Inspiration Destination where anything goes.

For this challenge, I used a lovely image from Gingerloft called Sunflower Collage.

I hope you can join us this time.

Pretty Flowers

I've been a member of the One Stitch at a Time design team for several years, and for my birthday in November, I was allowed to choose some images as a gift. One of those I chose is a gorgeous digi stamp and paper set from Coosty Creations called Aubrietta.
I cut the image using a Spellbinder's die and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils. I did a Spirelli-type frame with silver thread around the die cut. The paper is one of those supplied with the image - although I squared it off to fit the design. I finished with some silver ribbon.

I need to get around to using more of the gorgeous images I chose, but there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day sometimes!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 132

This time, our challenge is hosted by my team mate, Lorraine, and the theme is love. So it can be a valentine, or a card for a wedding or engagement - it's up to you so long as the theme is love.

I chose to make a valentine card for my husband, although naturally, I won't be signing it!


I've used a gorgeous lacy paper from Joanna Sheen's Ivory Cats CD - and I've got to say it was well worth the money I paid for the background papers alone! Normally when I buy a CD, I love the images and am disappointed with the background papers. It's the opposite this time. (Well, not really. The images are fine, but there are only so many people you can send cat images to.)

The front heart is made using a couple of Marianne dies, and the inside one uses a Sizzix die. I generated the sentiment in Photoshop Element. The flowers were made using a set of Sizzix Susan's Garden dies and were shaded using Pan Pastels.

The card is a bit fussier than I'd usually do for my husband, but I didn't want it to be completely plain.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar where anything goes,
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards where 'Love is in the Air',
Crafts 4 Eternity where the theme is 'With Love',
Fussy and Fancy where 'it's all about love',
Kitty Bee where the theme is Valentines/love,
Simply Create where they want valentines/hearts,
Sister Act where anything goes,
