A few Christmassy things

I'm slowly making a few Christmas cards here and there so will soon have enough for my work colleagues, friends, family and for my mum and mother-in-law to send out as well!

This first one is for Stampin' Royalty's #47 for the sketch, CC298 to use Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake, Free For All #27 to use snow and distressing and for Papertake Weekly's Cut It Out challenge to use die cuts or punches - I used both!


Recipe:

Papers: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla

Inks: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Double Loops MS Border Punch, Diamond Stickles, Ribbon from stash, Distressing Tool

My next one is for Mojo #166 for the sketch and CC297 to use Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz. My image panel is not quite long enough, but I think I can get away with it.


Recipe:

Stamps: Cat Plate 1 from Pink Cat Studio, Signature Christmas from PTI, The Snowflake Spot from SU (Retired)

Papers: Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Baja Breeze DSP (retired) all from SU, Copics White cs

My last card for this weekend is for Farm Fresh Friday's sketch challenge, CC90 to use Blush Blossom, True Thyme (which I subbed with Old Olive) and Cranberry Crisp (which I subbed with Purely Pomegranate) and for the ILWS Faux Tearing technique challenge.

And my final Christmassy thing for today is a Flapper box! I joined the Secret Santa swap on the ILWS forum and this is the box I made for the person I'm buying for. I thought I would enter this in the Just Us Girls challenge #61 to make a 3D christmas embellishment - ok mine's just a few snowflakes stuck together but I think it still counts! This is also for the ILWS gift packaging challenge, but I can't upload it just yet as I haven't sent it out yet!

Stamps: The Snowflake Spot (retired), Curly Cute both from SU

Papers: Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White all from SU

And that's all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by!

A couple of non- Christmas cards

With the holiday season fast approaching and me being as disorganised as I usually am, I made just 2 cards this weekend that were not Christmas ones.

The first one is for Paper Pal Arts challenge #70 for the sketch and for Color Throwdown's #120 to use So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.


Recipe:

Stamps: Frames with Flourish, Best Yet (both retired), Great Friend all from SU

Papers: Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, Whisper White, Cottage Wall DSP (retired) all from SU

Inks: So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive all from SU

I'm not keen on this next one, but I'm not sure what else to do to it, so will leave it for now and come back to it later. This is for Just Add Ink #45 for the sketch, the ILWS colour challenge for November to use black, red, orange and yellow and for Free For All #38 to use silhouettes. I did have to adapt the sketch slightly to cover up my boo-boo! I smudged the black ink when I picked it up before it had dried properly!


Recipe:

Stamps: Upsy Daisy from SU

Papers: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White, Sunny Garden DSP all from SU

Inks: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade all from SU

November 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

Today is Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop and this month the challenge is to design a holiday tag or two using all of your favorite goodies. I used my Christmas combo for this year using the same colours and stamps - my gifts are going to look so pretty all matching! I just need to get some pink or silver (or pink AND silver) wrapping paper as all I have left from last year is red paper, which won't go with this year's design!

I started with a kraft base and cut a simple tag shape (I forgot to order the tag die in my last order!) and stamped with the snowflake circles from Background Basics: Christmas. I layered a Sweet Blush Limited Layers Circle Die (I used 3 different ones) onto a Lavender Moon Mat Stack 1 which I embossed with the Linen Texture Impressions Plate - love the texture this plate adds to cardstock! I then added a stocking from the Stocking Prints set and cut it out with the matching die, using 3 different images using Blushing Bride ink from SU (my Sweet Blush ink doesn't match very well and I will be buying a new one when the new inks come out!). I added a bit of glittered white felt to the top of the stockings and some silver cord. Finally, I punched a hole at the top of each tag and threaded some more silver cord through the top to attach them to my pressies! Really quick and easy to make too. I will need to make a few more of these but I managed to get 6 out of 1 sheet of cardstock so they didn't use much either!


Recipe:

Stamps: Stocking Prints, Background Basics: Christmas both from PTI

Papers: Kraft, Sweet Blush, Lavender Moon, Stampers' Select White all from PTI

Inks: Whisper White craft, Blushing Bride both from SU

Accessories: Silver cord from SU, Mat Stack 1 die, Limited Layers 1 3/4" Circles Collection Dies, Stocking Prints Die all from PTI, White gel pen

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

Butterflies and Flowers

All of these cards contain images of flowers, or butterflies or both! I've been loving my butterflies at the minute - I think I'm trying to call the summer back before winter sets in, although it looks like it's already here! We have a snow warning for this week - argh!

My first one is for a huge amount of challenges: Mojo #165 for the sketch, Just Us Girls #60 to use dark red, black, white and gold, A Passion For Papertrey's Scrapalicious Challenge (my white cardstock pieces were small scraps, the Victorian Lace die was left over from VSN last weekend, when I didn't use it on a card and the yellow DSP was another bit I cut to use and then changed my mind last weekend!), Papertrey Posse's November challenge to make a thank you card using fall colours (I think dark red and gold count as fall colours, don't you?!) and finally for Free For All #39 to make a thank you card. Phew!



Recipe:

Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Around and About Sentiments both from PTI,

Papers: Harvest Gold, Scarlet Jewel, Distressed Dots DSP all from PTI, Basic Black from SU, white cs from stash

Inks: Scarlet Jewel from PTI, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black from SU

Accessories: Victorian Lace Die, Diamonds Impression Plate, Mat Stack 2 die, Limited Layers 1 3/4" Circle collection dies, Butterfly die, Scarlet Jewel ribbon, True Black buttons all from PTI

My next card is for Color Throwdown #199 to use Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I used old Mojo #79 for the sketch. (Nearly caught up on all the old Mojo sketches now - where will I go for sketches next?!)


Recipe:

Stamps: Just Believe from SU

Papers: Pear Pizzazz cs & DSP from hostess pack, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze from SU

Accessories: Scallop Trim Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon all from SU, White pearl from Papermania, Glossy Accents (to make the dots look like brads), Victorian Fleur Embossing Folder from Papermania

My next one is for Paper Pal Arts #69 to make a CAS card with ribbon - does mine qualify for CAS do you think? I hope so as I can't do CAS at all, but this one is fairly simple in my opinion! I used SC306 for the sketch, CC296 to use Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise and White and it's also for Free For All #37 to use an image with a tail!


Recipe:

Stamps: For Everything from SU

Papers: Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: Poppy Parade and Tempting Turquoise inks and markers from SU

Accessories: Scallop Trim Punch, Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon (retired) both from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Diamond Stickles, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder

Tilda, Edwin and a bit of Cheeky Glamour!

Just a couple more cards and something else from this weekend!

My first card is for Just Magnolia #83 to use white plus one other colour. I am loving blue and white for Christmas cards at the minute, especially with my new Tilda (I did buy a couple more today so expect to see them soon as well LOL). I also used SC307 for the sketch!


Recipe:

Stamps: Jolly Tilda from Magnolia, Snow Flurries from SU, Signature Christmas from PTI

Papers: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist both from SU, Copics White cs, Vintage Christmas DSP from Magnolia

Inks: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist both from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Blue buttons from Papermania, Ribbon from stash

My next creation is from a class I went to today - the last in a series of 4, one for each season, but I didn't do the other 3 so I'm going to make some of my own! I don't know the names of all the stamps, but all of them except for the robin and gingerbread man were Magnolia stamps! I'm entering this one in Our Creative Corner's Holiday 3D Project challenge. The class lasted about 4 1/4 hours, but a lot of that time was spent chatting - I don't think you would need more than 2-3 hours to be honest. My Christmas holiday project is now to make the other 3 seasons using the stamps I have already. (The camera picked up lots of stray bits of glitter that I need to rub off, once the Snow Writer is completely dry!)



Recipe:

Stamps: Signpost, Log, Santa Edwin, Gingerbread House, Basket of Present, Stack of Presents all from Magnolia, Robin from Molly's Blooms, Gingerbread Man from Imaginisce

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Gift Box!

This is my last post for today. I made a little gift box using Papertrey Ink's Favor It Box #2 die and am entering it in A Passion For Papertrey's Anything But A Card Challenge, Sweet Stampin' Challenge It's All About Snowflakes and for Just Add Ink's #43  - Just Add Christmas. I used the same colours as I did on this card (second card in the post) so that when I make all my Christmas cards and gift boxes they match. I'm going to add some little boxes of chocolates or something in these boxes.


Recipe:

Stamps: Background Basics: Christmas, Giga Guide Lines, Signature Christmas all from PTI

Papers: Kraft, Lavender Moon, Sweet Blush all from PTI

Saturday's VSN Challenges Part 2

This is part 2 of VSN Saturday's challenges - part 1 is here. There's just so many of them that they make my blog post so incredibly long.

Challenge L was to use blue and white with either gold or silver - I used silver (not really a fan of gold to be honest). Believe it or not the longest part of this card was tying the second fiddly bow for the hanging cord! In the end I just cut the cord in half, tied other end on and hid the cut bit under the middle stocking!


Challenge M was make a card inspired by the best moment of your life. One huge moment for me was passing my driving test, which I'm ashamed to say took 4 attempts! I had almost given up on ever passing as I just got so nervous in the tests! I haven't done this card yet but will hopefully get it done this week and will then upload it!

Challenge N was to be inspired by the music on your iPod. I have a ton of rock and metal on mine, including HIM, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Coal Chamber and so on, so I just made a generic guitarist card! this is the one I made for Stacey's Curtain Call last week as well.


Challenge O was to make one of the following: a 3 X 3 note card tote, a 3 x 3 note card box, or four 3 X 3 note cards. I did the notecards using 2 colour variations.


Challenge P was to follow the given sketch. This one is also for Stampin' Royalty's challenge #45 to be inspired by the pictures of poppies for Remembrance Day.


Challenge Q was to use at least 3 colours from the rainbow and some glitter. I used red (Poppy Parade), orange (Peach Parfait) and yellow (Daffodil Delight) with some glitter brads. I also used the sketch from Papertake Weekly's #50 for this one.


Challenge R was to make a card honoring or remembering an angel and to use distressing. I haven't made this one either so will upload it later on this week.

Saturday's VSN Challenges Part 1

These are the cards I made for the challenges on Saturday for the VSN on SCS - see this post for Friday's challenges.

Challenge G2 was to make a card with lots of white space. I used this card that I made for the Sweet Stampin' challenge last weekend. (G1 was a children's challenge)


Challenge H was to use the same stamp 3 times as the focal point on your card. I used the butterflies from Butterfly Dreams with Fancy Flourishes as flowers as I have seen so many times, but it did look pretty don't you think? I also used CC20 for my colours.


Challenge I was to have your sentiment "floating" so I popped it up on some dimensionals. This one is also for Sweet Sunday's Sketch #93 and Stacey's Curtain Call #56 to use Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait - very springtime colours I thought.


Challenge J was to make a card with something you find in the air - I chose my fave, butterflies. I also used the colours and "glass" from Paper Pal Arts' Inspiration Challenge #68 and Mojo #164 for the layout.


Challenge K was to make a card inspired by a hobby other than crafting. I didn't read the write up properly and made a bookmark rather than a card, but nevermind. I needed a new one as mine's getting tatty now.


I'll carry on with the rest of Saturday's challenges in a new post as this one's getting a bit long now! Click here to go to them!

Friday's VSN Challenges

This weekend was the Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) on Splitcoast Stampers, which I absolutely love doing! I was also a hostess for challenge D and I love having the honour of hosting my own challenge. I haven't managed to do all the challenges yet, but I'm going to try and get the last 3 done this week. I spent a fab in London yesterday, shopping and watching Chicago at the Cambridge Theatre which was fantastic, so I've not had enough time to do them all.

All the cards details can be found with my card uploads in my SCS gallery.

Challenge A was to make a Christmas card without using red or green. Easy peasy! I much prefer pink Christmas cards anyway!


Challenge B was to use cotton on a project, either as cotton fabric, cotton wool or flocking. I didn't get the time to do this one, but will hopefully get it done this week.

Challenge C was to use a sentiment for hope or a better tomorrow, use silver embellishments and decorate the inside. And here's my Cottage Garden card... This one was also for SC305 and CC295 as well.


Challenge D was my challenge! You had to dress your card up to the nines in rich elegant colours, with some metallics and luxurious embellishments. I came up with this...


Challenge E was to use either silver and a line art image OR silver and stitching. I did a bit of CASEing of Geny Cassady's card here and made this one...


Challenge F was to make a thank you card. I did another CASE here of Niki Estes' card but used CC70 for mine.


That's all Friday's done folks. Thanks for stopping by. Make sure you come back and check out Saturday's challenges too.

A Few Odd Cards For Today

I only made a few cards today that were for other challenges and not just for the VSN challenges for next weekend. These cards are also for VSN challenges, but as the other challenges I did these for run out before VSN I thought I'd better post them now.

My first card is for Sweet Stampin's Inspiration challenge #51 which was a plate full of Iced Gems biscuits. I used adore these and would eat all the biscuit parts first and then have a bag of icing to crunch on! I took the colours from the little biscuits for my card.

Inks: SU markers in Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz

Lots of Flowers And A Boy!

I've done a ton of crafting today - as well as my usual challenge cards, I've been making some samples for next weekend's VSN! I'm hostessing a challenge at 9pm EST, which will be 2am our UK time! And next Saturday morning I'm being picked up 7:30 for a day trip to London to do a bit of shopping and then to watch Chicago at the West End. So a little nap on the coach will be in order me thinks!

Anyways.. my first card today is for Just Add Ink's #42 for the sketch and Paper Pal Arts #67 to use Daffodil delight, Basic Gray and Poppy Parade. Not my usual colour combo, but I do like how the dark grey makes the Poppy and Daffodil seem so much brighter.

Stamps: Style Beautiful from SU, Polka Dot Basics from PTI

Papers: Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Whisper White

Inks: Basic Gray, Poppy Parade marker and ink, Daffodil Delight marker

Accessories: Daffodil Delight satin ribbon, Beautiful Blooms Dies #2, 1/2" circle punch, Button and Pearls from Papermania

My next card is for Mojo #163 for the sketch and Stampin' Royalty's #44 to use Pear Pizzazz, Cajun craze, Marina Mist and So Saffron. I haven't warmed to Cajun Craze yet so every time I do a colour challenge with it in, I use it for my mounts, but I must force myself to try it in some other way and actually open that ink pad! I did get out my new spritzer tool and add some Cajun mist though for an aged kind of look to my image.


Recipe:

Stamps: Just Believe

Papers: Pear Pizzazz, Cajun Craze, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Retired DSP from SU (I don't know the name of this one as my friend Linda sent me some ages ago!)

My next card is for Just Us Girls #58 for the sketch, CC15 to use Barely Banana, Gable Green and Ballet Blue and for Our Creative Corner's theme challenge - An Attitude of Gratitude. It was Diwali yesterday and 2 of my TAs at school brought me some Diwali sweets in (and they were gorgeous, thank you Asha and Kiran!), so I'm using this card as a thank you to one of them (the other will get my next card!).

Stamps: Because I Care

Papers: Ballet Blue, Gable Green, Barely Banana, Whisper White

Inks: SU Markers in Ballet Blue and Gable Green

Accessories: Victorian Lace Die from PTI, Damask Embossing Folder from Crafts Too, Buttons and ribbon from stash, Diamond Stickles

It's also for Papertrey Posse's petite challenge to use a die and for CC83 to use Cool Caribbean (which I subbed with Soft Sky), Regal Rose and Certainly Celery.

Last cards of my holiday

Today is the last day of half term (boo hoo!), which means I have to go back to work tomorrow morning, although we do have 2 training days on how to teach Ruth Miskin phonics language programme! (No idea why I have to have this as I have no intention on ever being in KS1 so won't be teaching it, but hey ho!)

These are the last few cards for the Hope You Can Cling To Charity drive that has been happening all month on Splitcoast Stampers. The idea behind this one is that each day a different challenge is set, we make a card for it then we send all the cards for the challenge to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas so they can sell them and raise money for cancer research and treatment. Such a fantastic cause and I now have a huge box of cards to sort out and send off.

My first one is for HYCCT#28 to make a card for a girlfriend with the idea of spending time together. I also used the sketch from Sweet Stampin' and the colour combo CC291 to use Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Tangerine Tango.


Recipe:

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits from PTI, Romeo & Juliet from Elzybells

Papers: Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Petals & Paisley DSP (retired)

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Markers in Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz

Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Tangerine Tango ribbon, Buttons from stash, Oval Nestabilities, Zoomz (like Dew Drops)

My next card is for HYCCT29 to make the sentiment the only stamping on a card. I used Taylored Expressions sketch #132 and Curtain Call #54 to use Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie - a very Autumnal colour choice, but I went for a different idea.


Recipe:

Stamps: Wishing You from Verve

Papers: More Mustard cs & DSP (from retired hostess pack), Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Sweet Pea DSP (retired)

Inks: More Mustard

Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Circle and Lace Circle Nestabilities, Boho Blossoms Punch, Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon

My next card is for HYCCT30 which was the sketch. I also used the inspiration photo from the Our Creative Corner Challenge. I used the soft colours of pale yellow, vanilla and light brown for the basis of my card.


Recipe:

Stamps: Because I Care

Papers: Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Very Vanilla all from SU, Linen Closet DSP from DCWV

Inks: Crumb Cake, SU Markers in So Saffron & Pear Pizzazz

Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Labels 14 Nestabities, Heart gems from Papermania

And the last challenge for the Hope You Can Cling Challenge was to make card inspired by one of the photos from the Etsy Treasury. I chose the Wonderland Fairytale treasury and used the A Time for Roses photo for my inspiration.


Recipe:

Stamps: En Francais, Vintage Vogue, Curly Cute

Papers: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla

Inks: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink

Accessories: Pink Pirouette ribbon, Brads from stash, Eyelet Border Punch, Corner Rounder Punch

And my final card for today is not for the Hope You Can Cling challenges. Instead it is for the Farm Fresh Friday challenge to use light brown, pink and pale blue, for Sweet Sunday's Sketch #91 and for Just Add Ink's #41 to Just Add Birthdays.


Recipe:


Stamps: Whimsical Words (retired SAB set), Birthday Anya from The Greeting Farm


Papers: Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky DSP, Copics White
