AYLI DT - FAVE WAY TO ADD A SENTIMENT

Morning Everyone,

It is time for the next challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to showcase a project showing your favourite way to add a sentiment (and please don't forget to say why  as it won't be eligible for a prize or top 3 spot).





I've failed miserably in my efforts to try and not buy any more stamps/images as I have been tempted to a few just lately.  This one is from Di's Digistamps which I have coloured with copics.  I tried to colour it with my new pencils, but struggled to find a blue that suited.

More often than not when I'm making a card I don't think about the sentiment until the end and struggle with where to put one, so my most favourite way then is to use these little tags under a bow.  These are from Mama Elephant, but I also use the LOTV ones quite a lot too.

I've used a Crealies mini scalloped square and ribbon and pearls finish it off.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

SPARKLES CHRISTMAS DT - OUTDOOR FUN

Morning Everyone,

I'm back for my second post of the day and as it's the first of the month it is time for another challenge over at Sparkles Christmas challenge and the theme for this month, as chosen by Cheryl,  is Outdoor Fun.

For my card I've used these cute mice from the Penny Black Winter Wonderland clear stamp set.




I've coloured them with copics and created a little scene with a Wild Rose Studio die and Lawn Fawn stitched hillside border die.  The scrap of blue paper was a freebie in a magazine and I've used embossing paste with a falling snow stencil from Simon Says.  The sentiment is from a LOTV set and I've extended my square scalloped dies again to make a rectangle for the base.  Glitter and stickles have also been added.

So if you'd like to join in with the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team, but remember it must be Christmas themed.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - Baby It's Cold Outside
The Colour Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Let It Snow
Di's Digi Designs - Winter


Thank you for visiting and I hope you have time to leave a comment.  I do love to read them.

Have a good weekend,

AYLI DT - REAL OR FAUX STITCHING?

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and the theme for this fortnight is to showcase a project containing your favourite stitching - real or faux (and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite).




For me it depends on the style of the card as I do like real stitching on shabby chic styles, but because I use it the most my favourite is faux.  When I do real stitching I can't seem to get it very straight and doesn't look neat.

For my card I've used a pre-coloured image from LOTV and my Crealies stitched square dies.  The numbers are cut from a Marianne Design die and sorry I can't remember the make of the star dies. The alphabet stamp set is one I received for Christmas.  It's a Hobby Art one and is a bit grungy looking, just in case you thought it was the way I'd stamped it :) .

The sponsor for the challenge is
