sentiment focus at Christmas Card Club

 This fortnight at Christmas card club we are focussing on the card sentiment. For my card I have used a Diesire die cut out in black card and added this to a background made up from crushed olive distress oxide and overprinted with a clarity stencil shown in forest moss distress ink.

Mum, who is doing very well, has managed to make two cards:
This first one includes an embossing folder and a die from Crafters Companion.

The second one includes a stencil from Imagination Crafts.

Hope you have a great Sunday!
Love and hugs

More vintage at Countryview Challenges

 Hello there!

I have really enjoyed making for the current vintage theme at Countryview Challenges - there are so many possibilities. I had to do another twofer - again using beautiful stamps from Crafty Individuals.

These images are quite different from each other this time - I used the vintage train tag image for a father's day card and the telephone image for an any occasion card. Both images had colour added using clean colour pens and were then added to background paper also from Crafty Individuals.

I do hope you can join the challenge - I look forward to seeing what you make!
Big hugs

Nativity at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there - well I am a little early posting for CCC but as I have another post due tomorrow I thought I would do this today.

The theme this fortnight is nativity and I have made a quick card using Chocolate Baroque stamps and a TH stencil.

My mum has made her card using a stencil from Sweet poppy and Lavinia stamps.

Hope you have a good evening!

Vintage at Countryview Challenges

 Hello there!

Its first of June and time for a new challenge over at Countryview Challenges. The theme for this month is Vintage - and I have a twofer for you - both made using stamps from Crafty Individuals.

Both have been teamed with papers also from Crafty Individuals. I added colour to both images using clean colour pens and on the one on the left added some distress oxide around the edge of the paper. 
I do hope you can join this months challenge - there will be £20 up for grabs to spend in store for the lucky winner.
