Crimbo Crackers Challenge 145 - Anything Goes

Time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is nice and easy:

Anything Goes

I've used a kraft card blank and then with offcuts I've added a Marianne Creatables snowflake die cut and Sizzix thinlits.  The mitten is my own template and I've used papers I found in my stash plus the off cuts made the bow..  I've hand cut the holly and the berries are embellishments from a posh set of crackers from a few years ago.


The bell I bought as a set from ebay and the little lego man was personal to the recipient!  A bit of light inking and faux stitches with a black fine liner pen and the card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

I've hand written the sentiment on a Sizzix tag die cut and the ribbon, embroidery thread, wooden snowflake and half pearls are all from my stash.

Counting The Years

A Birthday card for the older fellas in our lives!  I've used Drac's Dentures from Dr Digi and coloured him up with Promarkers.  The papers I found in my stash and I've not got a clue where they are from!

I've handwritten the sentiments with a white gel pen on off-cuts of black card and the charm is from my stash.

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Non Card Winter Themed

The current Polkadoodle challenge theme, as always is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to create a Winter Themed Non Card.  I've made a cute kraft card gift box - the box die is from Sizzix (it came with the Big Shot!) and I've used papers from Winnie White Christmas to make the gift bow - layered onto the off cuts of kraft card from making the box.


The tag is also from the collection - I added the wording using Pic Monkey and then added some thin red satin ribbon from my stash.  The little stars were cut from glittered cardstock (amazing that I had some in the same colours!!) using a little X Cut die.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 144 - Quick and Easy

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme I've set for the fortnight is:

Quick and Easy

I've made a card using one of the pre coloured image panels from the Polkadoodles Winnie White Christmas collection.  I've added the sentiment using a free graphics programme and then added extra holly as decoupage and some small X cut glittery stars.  Half pearls have been added as berries to the holly.


And I think it took me about 15 minutes to make the card!

Good luck with the challenge!

Stampin' Unicorn - Blooms

Here is my first creation with these wonderful Stampin' Unicorn clear stamps!  I've made a simple repeat stamped panel using the All About Daisy set.  I coloured an additional daisy with Promarkers plus a leaf, cut them out and added to the panel with foam pads.


I coloured strips of card with the same Promarkers to layer behind the panel.  Finally, I scored a border around the edge and added some chunky glass beads to the daisy centres.

Easy peasy!!  And so many possibilities!

Grumpy

A quick card made with one of the Grumpy Sentiments from Dr Digi, enlarged so it became the focal point and then printed.  I've also added Pint Glass from Dr Digi, coloured with Promarkers.

The stars are cut from off-cuts of scrap card with an X Cut die and then layered with foam pads.

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 42 - Crafty Sentiments

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and we are sponsored this week by Crafty Sentiments Designs, and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

I've used Day Dreaming and coloured him with Promarkers.  I found some scraps of paper in my stash that were offcuts from a previous project and as they were only strips, I had to be creative to get them to fit around the image and embossing panel.

The embossed star panel is From Me To You and I've added faux stitching round the edges.  Buttons and embroidery thread are also from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
