Allsorts challenge week 387 - Lets make a start on Christmas

Good Morning all and welcome to another challenge over at Allsorts.
Tracy Mouse has picked the theme of - Lets make a start on Christmas!

Our sponsor for this week is Lets Create.

Here is my card.

Creative Expressions Die - Reindeer
Papermania Kraft card.
Hobby House backing papers
White card and sentiment Craftwork cards, sentiment cut using a SU punch and then punched again in the kraft card and cut in half to just back the end of the sentiment.
Metal gem for nose and a blue gem for the eye.
I cut the centre image in white card then again in the kraft card then just cut the deer out of the kraft card and glued over the white image.

I have to say that this was a fabulous die to work with and would go as far to say that it is the best die I have ever bought for cutting and all the bits dropping out. Now having said that it will probably start to play up. 

Thanks for popping by and do pop along to the challenge blog to see the other DT's fabulous creations.

Rudolph Day - October 2016

How time fly's when you are having fun?????

The penultimate RD challenge for 2016 over at Scrappy Mo's.

This month is unusual for me as I normally have a collection of cards to show using the same image but the other cards in the collection didn't photo at all well, and this one is not brilliant, but I hope you get the idea so here is my one and only card for this month which is actually testing out a new image which you will probably see more of next year, when I get a better idea of how I want to use it, God willing of course.

Blue mirri card for the backing and the paper is LOTV/Nitwits
Stamps are Woodware - Snowflake Flower and also the sentiment is Woodware from a different  stamp set.
Embossed with WOW blue glitz and the sentiment is just stamped with, I think Memento Paris Dust.

Have a great RD week, the challenge ends on the 31st of October.

Allsorts challenge week 385 - Pink October

This weeks challenge has been chosen by the lovely Mervi and as it says on my header it is ...
Pink October, in reference to Breast Cancer.
We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons

This is my card
I have yet to put a sentiment on, which will go on the bottom right hand side
The background papers - Kaiser Craft
SU ribbon
Image stamped on to LOTV/Nitwits papers with SU white embossing powder and stamped again and cut out and place over the original stamped image.
I really need to put a new camera on my Christmas list.
Pearls from my collection.
Pink October is in reference to Breast cancer.

Annoys me tremendously, what is there for Ovarian cancer, known as the Silent Killer, my Sister was very, very lucky to survive but the other 7 in her ward didn't.

I am also entering this into the In the Pink challenge which also is for Breast Cancer and wants to see ribbon or bows.

Pixie's Snippets Playground - week 250

This is a total case of a card I made earlier in the year. I made a pink one and a blue one, blogged the pink one but never blogged the blue one and I can not find it on my photo's so when my Daughter requested a new baby card for a boy I cased the pink one from earlier in the year.

The card is made of snippets left over from the earlier card and therefore I am pleased to be able to scoot off to the Playground and celebrate Di's 250th week of hosting the challenge.
Very well done Di and thank you.

The image is Woodware
Papers are all LOTV/Nitwits
Ribbon unknown, but it is lovely isn't it.

Allsorts challenge - week 383 - Get Inspiration from a previous DT creation.

Good Morning and welcome, Saturday morning so another challenge over at Allsorts.
The lovely Helene has chosen the theme of ...

Get Inspiration from a previous Allsorts DT member's creation.

This means that you have to find a past creation by one of our DT members and show us your take on it.

Our sponsor this week is Sizzex with this lovely prize.

I have taken my inspiration from this lovely card by Tracy, I had the images loved the very different colour for a Christmas card. 

You can find the original post here.
10th of October 2015

This is my take on her card
Image - Hobby Art
Stamped with Memento - Peanut Brittle
Coloured with ProMarker - Apricot
Memory box - Crystalline border, but only used the snowflakes and stars, not as a border and I coloured white card with the Apricot ProMarker to match and then die cut the card.
Some Martha Stewart crystal fine glitter, well it was originally but I have added other crystal glitters over the years.

I have to say that Tracy stamped the snowflakes where I have die cut the snowflakes as I didn't trust myself, after doing all the other stamping, to get the snowflakes right.
Another Christmas card to the collection.
The snowflakes were cut from a snippet of white card so will be heading into the Playground with this card when it opens again tomorrow, treading carefully as it has been a while since I visited.
