Challenge # 93 - Just Because..........

Hello again, this week at Ruby's Rainbow, the challenge is Just Because....... maybe we should send more cards for no other reason than Just Because, for I am sure it would always be appreciated. Could this be another of my plans for next year? I was fortunate to buy this stamp at a recent Ross Craft Event, the stamp is from 'The Stamp Barn' which is a Canadian stamp company. I think it is so elegant and suitable for many occasions. I used Promarkers to colour it. The dark rose matting card is a piece of Core-Dinations. Please pop over to the blog to see the Design Team's inspiration.

Food and or Drink

Hello again, another week has passed us by and it's time for the challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. This week, Kim has chosen for us Food and or Drink. Please check out the blog for the team have created some lovely cards for your inspiration. For my card I thought along the lines of thanking a cook for a wonderful meal, I am hoping you have all  had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have enjoyed your Thanksgiving meals across the pond and for those who may have celebrated here in the UK. Maybe this card would be suitable for you. I cut half of the front cover off to show the pretty food scattered paper on the inside. The chef is decoupaged which adds more interest.  The wording is ' Thank you - Serving Up A Feast'.  The papers are from a Janet Kruskamp CD, produced by Joanna Sheene.  Thanks for visiting, which is greatly appreciated that you took the time.

Cute Christmas

Hi, we at Fantasty Stampers would like to see a Cute Christmas for your next challenge project. Please pop over to the challenge blog to check out what the Design Team have created.  I just love this design from LOTV, called Penguin Presents, it is such a fun stamp and a lovely one to sit and colour with Promarkers. It's on a round scalloped card, which I made into an easel card. Another Christmas card ready for my collection.  You have two weeks, so I hope to see you during my visits.

Time and Space

Well, I certainly jumped out of my comfort area with this week's challenge at My Time To Craft (MTTC). The challenge is Time and or Space. Please do pop over to the challenge blog to see the Design Team's inspiration . I decided to go for Space - The Last Frontier. I used a dark blue 8 inch square card. Scattered peel off stars over the page. I found via Pinterest a free Aliens print out page provided by Leone Betts, to whom I am so grateful. I coloured the digis with Promarkers. The planet began, many months ago, in one of my inky, messy sessions, when the pages are spritzed, splattered and generally messed about, to be dried and put away for another day. This being one of them. This piece of card seemed just the right piece for the planet and after it had been embossed with a snake skin Embossing Folder, which created craters. The larger spacecraft is stuck on with a wiggly spring, it is such a shame you can't see it moving on the page, it makes the card so interactive and fun. Wiggly spring available from Wear Crafts   I look forward to visiting you during the next week, have fun creating your Time - Space challenge.

U is for Unicorn

It was my turn to choose the subject, it being for the letter U in our Alphabet Challenges, I love the idea of the mythical beauty, the UNICORN. I do hope you have fun creating your project with this beautiful animal. Please visit the blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the design team. I used a  blue scalloped 8 inch square card. The background paper and the main image are from a CD I bought  from E Bay Unicorns from Maria G Designs, which I don't think are any longer in business.
I matted the main image onto holgraphic silver card. Added some pink/purple pearls, along with ribbon and a piece of purple and silver twisted cord. along with a Happy Birthday sentiment.

Hello again, the challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz has been chosen by Julie, everyone loves to have a Christmas Stocking full of little goodies and  secret surpirses. We would like to see any style, design or cration of a Christmas Stocking. The design team have created some amazing inspirational cards for you so please do pop over to check them out. I decided to make a CAS card. I bought the scalloped round dark blue cards recently so felt I needed to try them out. I used my new round dies to create the holographic silver mat and the same blue card for the image. The stocking is from Debbie Moore, yes, it's a number of years old but I do love these stamps. The greeting is from the same set. I used Stampendous eaxtra fine detailed white Embossing powder to emboss the stocking and the sentiment. I'm looking forward to visiting you to see your Christmas Stockings for a MALE.

The Big Guy (Santa)

It's getting very close to The Big Guy (Santa) visiting all the children.  For the next month at
Sparkles Monthly Challenges it was my turn to choose the theme, so I have chosen 'The Big Guy'. We, the Design Team, have created inspiration for you so please do check out the challenge. I used a stamp set from Kanban. I stamped in red and black Ho Ho Ho to create the background. I used Festive Berries DI to the edges and around the circle. I used Promarkers to colour. Dovecraft Crystal Glitter glue on the fur edgings. I love using the Fluffy stuff, it is so magical. I added this to his beard. You just add the liquid, then heat it with your heat tool and it bubbles up and stays fluffy when it cools down. I'm sure you'll have fun, creataing your project, I'm looking forward to visiting you.
