Allsorts challenge week 472 - Two or More Dies


Good Morning and it is my turn to host this weeks challenge at Allsorts.
I have chosen the theme of....

Use two or more Dies.

The Sponsor this week is Sticker You with a fabulous $65 prize to spend in their store.

I have used six dies on this card

The backing oval die is - Die-namics - Dainty Doily
The plain oval die that the image is on is Spellbinders.
The stitched die on the DP and two dies on the fancy border are Spellbinders
The border lace die  is Die-Namics too.
Both papers are from Nitwits/LOTV
The Rose is from PB - T for Transparent  Efflorescence set.

I have not added a sentiment as I have done my Grandson's teachers thank you cards in this style and did an extra one incase one or the other decided they need another

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Back to Basics and Beyond - Fold back card

The challenge this fortnight at Back to basic and beyond is to create a fold back card
I am cutting it fine as the challenge is not open for much longer.


I did take a photo of the card more open and showing the fold back in more detail but could not get the photo to look right and also the colours of the image and the papers looked totally different.
Stamp is Craftwork Cards.
Papers are Nitwits
Doily die border is Die-namics
Oval dies are Spellbinders
Huge thank for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 471 - Ladies Night

Well another Saturday has arrived quick as sticks.
The lovely Tracy had chosen our theme for this week which is...

Ladies Night - Girly and Glam

Our Sponsor is Swedish House Crafts with a voucher to spend in the store.



So this young Lady looks like she is set for a good night out.
Unfortunately I can not remember where I bought this digital image from as it was quite a few years ago, it doesn't have a name but there are two initials but can't make them out either. I know it was from a craft shop and this was the only digi she did.
I have paper pieced the dress.
Wonder how many of those drinks she can manage before she falls off those heels?

Thank you so much for popping by and any comment you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge 470 - Baby


Welcome to another week and a new challenge over at Allsorts. This week the lovely Wendy has chosen the theme of ......
Babies


and also another prize, which is...
a lovely stamp set from Crafter's Companion

Here is my card.
Everything on this card is from very old stock.

The only thing I am certain of is that the elephants are from Craftwork Cards. a long time ago.
The base card is also Craftwork Cards. I have only two packs left so I have no idea where I will get my cards from when they have run out, not with the quality anyway.
I think the papers are SU, and the words and stars are Pebbles Inc.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Paper Piecing - Sweet Stamping

Third post this week, not at all like me but the challenge over at ..
Sweet Stamping is Paper Piecing, how could I miss that?


The stamp is Penny Black - Slapstick/Cling - Awaken
One of my current favourites
The papers are Lawn Fawn - Perfectly Plaid - Spring
I have paper pieced the flowers with a background I made from Distressed Oxides.

The die across the centre is not long enough to go across the 6 x 6 card and I usually cut it in the middle to go at each side of the image but on this occasion I had to cut it to place the image at one side as it was cut from a snippet of the D.O. background and missed some at the top of the left hand side, so you can guess what is coming next, yep, I am also entering this card into the Snippets Playground the backing card of the image and sentiment is also a snippet.

 Thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
I now have to publish and then comment on my own post so I can tick the box that will send any comments to me by mail!!!????

The dies behind the snowman are just floating about in my die draw!! Quite old ones.

Not the best photo, it does look better in real life.

Allsorts challenge - week 469 - Insects, Bugs, Bees or Butterflies

This theme has been chosen by the lovely Tracy Mouse.
As the title says you have a choice of insects, bugs, bees or butterflies or all the lot if you wish.

Our Sponsor this week is Bee Crafty
With this A4 Rare Earth stamp sheet

This is the card I should have posted on here as my Allsorts butterflies card
Penny Black - Potted Flowers


Using Penny Black - My little cupcake, such a cute smile.
Which features a caterpillar, just in case you were wondering! I have paper pieced his body with bits of the spotty paper.
The papers are from a very old 6 x 6 paper pad and one of those that you love the colours and the papers so you really hate to use them unfortunately I have so I can not tell you the name of them as I have hardly any left and the front sheet has gone.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are very much appreciated.
Have a lovely week.
