Hot, Bright Colours With Lavinia.


The new challenge starts today with Lavinia Stamps, and the new theme is 




I stamped the frame using "Background Script" then inked the edges with orange and pink, the "Zen flowers" were stamped and shaded with the same inks. "Thank you" looked rather harsh when I'd stamped it in black so I softened the look to suit the rest of the card by dotting over it using a white chalk pen.  

I used the same "Background Script"stamp on my tag along with two stamps from the

It's A Lottery!

A forgotten birthday card needed a quick recovery and sometimes just a card doesn't fit the bill.




So I bought a lottery ticket and made a match book style wallet to hold it, just a shame it wasn't a winning ticket!




I'm using this gift wallet for the following challenges:-
CIOC, Anything goes and stash/ (nail heads),
GGWSC, Anything goes,
TTCRD, Anything goes,
CFTH75, Anything goes,

Just Fishing.

Thought I'd share the card I made for my fishing loving brother-in-law. I created the card blank using my ScanNcut, cutting another of the shape in silver card which I then inked, stenciled and scored to hopefully make it represent a rainbow trout.  




I attacked my feather duster and used some wire and a paperclip to make my "fly" using some recycled silver thread for the "line" and then inked over a googly eye to make it look a more realistic colour.





I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Bloggers, Fly (Play on words),
Allsorts, recycle,(silver thread saved from gift wrapping)
SCT93, Special Occasion,
SPC12, Anything goes.

Flowers with Southern Girls.


It's time for a new challenge with the Southern Girls today and we have another nice easy one for you.




I didn't have chance to use the sponsors image today but there are some great sponsors this time, please check out the challenge blog for full details.
I used my Scan and cut to make my card, shaping and welding together petal shapes to make the shape then cutting out individual petals and inky stitching each one by hand the leaf and stem image is a built in shape. I shaped each petal with a ball tool and used glue and foam pads to place each one. The centre of my daisy was cut from felt with a nestability circle. The sentiment was also created using the draw option before sizing the tag, angling and cutting it.




I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
TIOT, Flowers,
IDCB48, Anything goes,
CGC3, Anything goes,
CWAA6, Anything goes.
