I hope you like.

AYLI DT - FAVOURITE STAMP BRAND

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite stamp brand (and don't forget to let us know why).

I think that by the amount of stamps I have mine must be Lili of the Valley.   I love cute images and they have such a variety - there's usually one for any occasion you can think of.

For my card I've used an older stamp and this is the second of the 2 baby cards I've made as mentioned in my previous post.




I have coloured him with copics, distressed the edges of the papers which are Maja Design Vintage Baby and slightly inked the edges of the image with weathered wood distress ink.  I have added cheesecloth, a heart shaped doily and a small feeding bottle all from Live and Love Crafts.  Three little flowers and a few pearls finish it off.



The sponsor for this challenge is

So, if you'd like to pop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see the lovely projects from the rest of the team.

NEW BABY

Morning Everyone,

I hope you've had a good weekend and managed to do some of the things you enjoy most.

My daughter asked me if I'd make a new baby boy card for one of her friends so I've made 2 in different styles for her to chose from.  This is the first one:



I've used a pre-coloured LOTV image and added a few embellies, but I don't like to put too many on for a boy.  I think you can make girls' cards a lot prettier but I'm never sure what to put on with boys. The sentiment tags are also LOTV which I stamped in Rusty Hinge distress ink to go with the kraft card.  Black didn't seem to really go with all the brown.

I'll see you in a few days with the next baby card. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday 467 - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Baby
A Gem of a Challenge - At least 3 B's (Baby, button, bow, blue, brown)
The Ribbon Girl - Any Card
Polka Doodles - Anything Goes

CWTCUTIES DT - NO MAN LIKE A SNOWMAN

Hi Everyone

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas with the Cuties and this month's theme is "No Man Like a Snowman" so we'd love to see your creations connected with that theme, as long as it's cute and Christmassy.  The team have used images from the sponsor Paper Nest Dolls and this is the card I came up with:




I coloured the image with copics and, as the image itself is so busy I didn't want to add much more to it except the snowman paper, which was a freebie with a magazine, and also the die cut fence.  I have added glitter to everywhere possible on the card which you can't really see but in real life it is very sparkly.

It would be nice if you could pop over to the challenge here and see all the lovely cards from the rest of the design team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Ribbon Girl  - Any Image
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Glitter N Sparkle #228 - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I love to read any comments you may leave.

AYLI DT - FAVOURITE NON CARD PROJECT

Hi Everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight the theme is to show your favourite non card project (and let us know why).

I don't do a lot of other crafting now I've found cardmaking, but I did decide last year to make more Christmas projects for the home. I love making Christmas cards so I thought I'd have a go at a few other bits.   I am in the middle of a Christmas cross stitch at the moment so I can't show that, but I have made this decoration from a mdf bauble. It's too big to hang on a tree as it's about 7" tall, but it can stand or hang on a wall.




The mdf has been covered with some First Edition paper and embellished with a frantaged Merry Christmas chipboard, a large flower, frantaged holly leaves, berries and stamens.  I have also added two tiny embossed snowflakes, pearls, lovely sparkly ribbon and a gorgeous pearl button .



The sponsor for this fortnight's challenge is            




with a prize of 3 digi stamps for the winner 

So, if you'd like to pop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see the lovely projects from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - D for dimension
Winter Wonderland Tribute - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Christmas

WINTER FRIENDS

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well.  I don't seem to have been blogging much lately other than DT cards so I thought I'd make a Christmas one.

Whenever I saw this Sylvia Zet image on a card it was one of those where I always thought how cute the little penguin and rabbit were so I went ahead and bought it and this is my card.



I coloured this with copics, added glitter and liquid pearls, distressed all the edges of the paper which are from two different pads and added the embellies, i.e. cheesecloth, sparkly ribbon, die cut snowflake, pearls and a punched lace trim.  The sentiment was stamped in gold metallic and is from LOTV.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

ABC Christmas - C for Creatures
Winter Wonderland Tribute - Anything Goes
The Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Glitter n Sparkle #227 - Add Ribbon or Lace
Crafty Creations #335 - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave, I love reading them.

AYLI DT - RIBBON OR LACE

Hi Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite, either ribbon or lace (and don't forget to say why it's your favourite).

I have used both on my card, but I do love lace more as I think it makes a card look a bit extra special and gives it more texture.  I must admit though that there isn't always a place for lace and only ribbon will do.



This is a stamp from Saturated Canary called Crafty Cat, which I have coloured with copics and I've also added glossy accents to the glasses.  The lace is a narrow lace which I have placed back to back and put a pearl string in the centre. I have added cheesecloth under the image which is cut out with a Little Darlings Fancy Squares die, added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment tags from LOTV are stamped with silver metallic ink.  I've also stitched around all the layers on my machine, but that's not very clear on the photo, and added a few pearls here and there.




The sponsor of this challenge is
£10 voucher
