4 of the Best!


Have started to tidy my craft area up bit by bit and found a folder with a load of toppers in it - by that I mean images which I had stamped, coloured and layered but had not made into cards. So, thought I would use one of them for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge. Haven't done this challenge for a little while so thought I would make an effort to get back into the swing of things. The challenge is:

"...The four top dares are 'buttons', 'ribbons', 'and cut' and 'frames'. We would like you to use this week as many of those dares as you like to make your card in any theme and any style.."
Thought I would use this Penny Black stamp - it seemed ideal for a New Year card bearing in mind the amount of food and booze we have all stuffed over Christmas. Trouble is I'm going to have to think VERY carefully who I give it to otherwise I could end up with a black eye!!!! I've used Pink Petticoat papers printed straight to the card, Bazzill c.s. for layering the image, Dovecraft ribbon and some flower buttons I had. The sentiment is a rubber stamp.
I was lucky enough to get some craft vouchers and cash for Christmas so visited Craft Central yesterday and bought a new Cricut cartridge, some Bazzill c.s., sticky gems and double sided tape and also did some shopping on the internet and have ordered my first Bellas, Nestabilities and some more Penny Black stamps!!

Hi Jo, thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes the dragon came with it. The best thing about this cartridge is that not only do you get the dolls and their clothes, you get some accesories for them, the dragon was one of the knights accesories.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
