Harvest or Halloween part 2 at Countryview Challenges.

 Hello there!

How are you doing? I am over on the Countryview Crafts Challenge site today with a second make for the current challenge of Halloween or Harvest - this time I have done harvest. I found some seeded paper and have made some cards using this. Each card can be torn up and planted by the recipient! A card that just keeps giving!

These first two are made using Katzelkraft stamps.

 These last three are made using Aall and Create stamps.

All have been coloured using clean colour pens.

You've still got a week to enter! Looking forward to seeing your makes!

Snowglobes at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there! Well its time for yet another outing of the Christmas card club. This fortnight we want to see snowglobes - I think this is my mums challenge. I made 4 cards using a stamp from IndigoBlu with a beautiful snowglobe on it.

I got these rounded card blanks from Jo Rice the last time I was there - and they certainly came in useful today! 
My mum made a couple of cards using a sweet poppy stencil and an inkylicious stamp.

They're beautiful! I do like that stencil a lot - Great for batch making.

This weekend I have a craft fair on - I have decided to see if people will buy my makes! Here's my stall as it was looking on Friday evening...

I'll let you know how I get on!
Have a great day!

Diecuts at Christmas card club

 Hello there! I am hoping this publishes as I will be at work and unable to check when it goes live - sure it will though! Another fortnight has rolled around and the theme this time at Christmas card club is diecuts. I decided to use one that I had never had out of the packet - a scribbly tree from Tim Holtz - I love it - its a much bigger die than I thought - really pleased with having used it! I made 4 variations on a theme having already made a number of gel press backgrounds.

To cut the trees out with I used some packaging from Lavinia stencils - I'm getting thrifty these days!

Here's my mums makes....she's used a number of dies - Tim Holtz, Sue Wilson and John next door.

I hope you have a great Sunday!

Halloween or Harvest at Countryview Challenges

 Hello there!

Well its October - I can hardly believe it! How did that happen? Anyway - the good news is that its time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges - and the theme is Halloween - love it or hate it - or Harvest! My make is probably more Halloween but kind of Harvest too - with the Harvest moon.

The stamp set is from Pink Ink Designs - I started by making a gel press inky circle then stamped the moon stamp onto it and also onto white card which I fussy cut and added. I then added the cat from the same set and drew a witches hat on the cat....finally I added the pumpkins and the leaves.

I hope you can join our challenge! You can find much more inspiration and the challenge link up here

Big hugs
