Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 156

This time, at Crafty Cardmakers, we want you to use dies or punches, but other than that, you can create whatever takes your fancy!

I was asked to make a card for a colleague to give to someone.

The background paper comes from a CDRom called Flower Power. I designed the greeting in colours to match in Photoshop Elements, and die cut both that and the mat. The flowers are all made using die cuts - mainly from Sizzix dies, but there are a few Cheery Lynn ones and a couple of Creative Expressions dies there too.

I hope you can join us this time.

Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 155

This time at Crafty Cardmakers and More, the challenge is to make something to celebrate something new. So, it can be for a new baby, marriage, home, or something else that's new - so long as you let us know what it is that's new, you're welcome to join in.

I bought several dies last year that I still haven't used, and one of those was a lovely one from Impression Obsession.


First, I assembled the house. I layered it onto some silver-grey card using foam pads to give some depth through the windows. Having measured the result, I then set about putting the sentiment on top of some backing paper from the Thomas Kinkade CDRom set from Joanna Sheen. (It's actually a sky and cloud image but that's not too obvious in the photo. I used my new tablet to take the photo and I suspect I need to fiddle with something to get better results.) After printing, I added the house, using another layer of foam pads for even more dimension.

I hope you can join us this time.
