DT card for SFTW Challenge Blog, October 11, 2013, Anything Goes



Hiya peeps,

I know, Im late with this one. I have had such a busy week & again, Ive not been well. This "illness"
of mine is driving me mad!! CMT has such a lot to answer for but Im not going to get into that argument/disagreement tonight.

The challenge, over at Stamping For The Weekend Challenge Blog, is sponsored by the brilliant Stamp Fairy where, at the moment, they have a sale on to celebrate an anniversary.
I chose to use Molly Winter 2 in which I coloured her with my Graph It alcoholic pens, adding fine glitter to the "fur" parts of her top & boots.  I then used my newish Martha Stewart circle edge punch starter set with the snowflake attachment, once in white linen effect card and the other in a green dot embossed card from Brazill. I topped all of these onto a white version of the dot embossed card which is 12x12 inch square.
I finished it off with silver peel offs in various designs. I decided against using a sentiment as I felt it didnt need one. I more than likely will add a sentiment when I decide which Grandchild will be getting this card at Christmas.
I hope you like it as much as me! Good Luck with the blog challenge should you enter. We have fabulous prizes on offer to the chosen winners.

Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog, challenge number 6.................


Good afternoon peeps,
Yes I am on another Design Team!! This makes number 3 and I never regret applying to join them.
This one is called Crafting Musketeers Challenge Blog and this month's challenge is called:
Christmas in October and you will find numerous photos below to show off what I had made.
I decided to get my embossing folders out & see what I had available to use. I soon found just what I was looking for in the embossing borders that I came across with.  These were the Season's Greeting border and the Holly & berries border that I used a few times.
I also used Spellbinders decorative labels to die cut the gold label under the coloured image.
It was only cut with using paper so it was fairly thin. I stuck it down using part of an A4 sheet of sticky foam sheet. This really helped to stabalise the gold paper.
The image I used is from: When The Scrap Hits The Fun & it is coloured with Graph It alchol pens & my trusty Promarkers.

The bow was made from a wired pale gold & red glitter Pointsettia ribbon that I found in with some other Christmas ribbons left over from last year, hidden away under some of my winter clothes!!!! Of all places. I suppose the bag of ribbons were put there as I knew that I would be getting the clothes out as the weather gets cooler.
The finishing touch for this card was the white/clear dazzle in the centre of the bow.

I hope you like this card as much as I do & dont forget to enter the challenge over here
