Sketch Challenge at Waltzing Mouse

I think this will also go for a wedding card. It is my input for the weekly challenge at The Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge.

Weekly challenge at CCCB *Frills and Flowers*

I created another wedding card for this weeks challenge at the City Crafters Challenge Blog. I added both, the lace and the flower.The paper is Graphics45, the tag cut with the Cricut. I always amazes me how accurate this machine is cutting even the smallest things.

For this weeks challenge at the Play Date Café I created a wedding card. The stamp is SU, the background Cuttlebug Texture folder. The ribbon goes through holes I punched with the Martha Stewart Threader Edge punch.

Colour Pick at home

The task was to find an item at home and work with the colours. This is my creation for the Paper Craft Planet group *ABC - Anything But Cute*

I must admit that I am addicted to Salmiak :)

Another Christmas Card for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Café.

The stars are embossed with Antiquities, the background is a QuicKutz Folder and the wonderful pin is made by my blog buddy June, thanks so much for it!

I stamped the sentiment with StaZon on a metal tag.

A Canvas for the Girls

Since I always have so many pictures which aren't suitable for a Layout I started this canvas a long time ago, got stuck, put it away and stumbled across it just yesterday.

The background is covered with Gesso, then I coloured it with everything I found: Acrylic, Reinker in a mini mister, Glimmer Mist. I rearranged the picture apprx. 127 times. I cut the flowers from grungepaper covered with that Tim Holtz tape and distressed the edges.

I will definitely not put you through the pain of reading how I made the letters. Only: They are Grungeboard by Tim Holtz and I covered them with  ........... (Everything I could find in my stash *grin*) It is the result of a test of a test of a test ..... etc.

I braided some ruffia for a hanger.

Colour challenge #50 at CQC

This is the first time for my new Ippity stamps. I used them for the weekly challenge at CQC. I love the autumn colours in this card.

Colour Splash at the Pay Date Café

September,9th is a date as good as any to start with the Season ;)

I stamped the background twice and heat embossed the star in Copper to add the required colour to the Black & White theme. I wish my camera would pick up the shimmer of the copper a bit better. On top of it it is very gloomy today!

I always enjoy the challenges at the Play Date Café!

Emma ...

Max & Whiskers by BasicGrey .... I had it for quite a while and was a bit afraid of using it.

Now I found a picture which went well with all the colours.

The embossing (Cuttlebug Measure to Measure) is on a metal foil, distressed with StaZon, the Car stamp is an older SU, sentiments and ticket from Autumn Leaves and my favorite DP from the pad *A proper gentleman* by Graphics45.

Thanks to the gals at CCCB for a wonderful challenge!
