Unstampabelles Challenge #84…

Hello

Boy the weeks fly by don’t they.

It is my turn to share at Unstampelles current challenge here

Challenge#84: Emboss, emboss, emboss……..

The TWIST is to make it for a male!
The Random Number Draw prize will be Stampin’ Up’s
I began by using embossing paste coloured with re-inker and circle stencil.  Once dry I cut to desired size for my card front and mounted on cs of the same colour.  I used my large letters and number to die cut HB2U (Happy Birthday to You) in silver foil.  I then embossed those with a Kaisercraft embossing folder and added them to my card base with foam tabs.
Excluding the drying time this was a pretty quick and easy card and I think great for a boy/young male adult.  Mr M (20) did confirm he would be happy to give to one of his mates for an upcoming birthday.
Hope to see you in the challenge. Remember no stamps!
Cheers

This weeks requests…

Hello

 This week one of the kiddos requested a Harry Potter inspired card.

I CASed this card from here

I free hand drew the hair and the scar before cutting out. I used SU Celebrate today for the “happy” and Number of Years for the “st”.  The die cut numbers are from Papersmooches popped up with foam tabs.  The glasses were made with circle punches and a strip of cs.

And for another 21st

A quick and easy card along with a personalised envelope.   The envelope was large enough for the personalised luggage tag and gift card and the card.  I CASed the envelope from here

And my last share for today is Ms A’s request. Ms A chose all the elements including the card base.  For my regular readers you wont be surprised she was very specific about what colour papers had to go where!

Thats all for today

Thanks for stopping by

Cheers

A little creative catch up…

Hello

 

When I posted yesterday I realised I had a few other creations I hadn’t shared. So here they are.

A recent 21st card for a Tigers fan

I used My Cute Stamps circus animals and SSS stitched circles dies along with SU Large numbers.

A planter box for a another significant birthday – this time for one of my walking/book club friends who happens to love gardening.

I used Bronwyn Eastley’s pattern here along with various SU stamps and dies.

A Unicorn card – a special request.

This time I used Jane’s Doodles and SU Beautiful Bouquet stamps & dies.

A little error here the kiddos also requested a unicorn card for this girl last year for her birthday and you guessed correct I used Jane’s Doodles Unicorn stamp set for the same girl’s card last year. (Insert embarassed face).  When I looked back at last years card it only had one unicorn so hopefully significantly different.  Needless to say next year I’ll either have to invest in a new unicorn stamp set or make another style of card.

Lastly an update on my Bernate Hi Lo Jumper.

Almost finished the front!

I have another request from the family and a pile of mending so I will get on with that in the coming days.

Until next time

Cheers

July Challenge SBB…

Hello

Hope you are well.  Melbourne has turned on the sunshine the last few days which has been very welcome.

Today I am sharing a card for a book club/walking friend who is celebrating a birthday soon.  I am entering it into the current challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here

My inspiration was the cute dog.

I chose Papersmooches paws for a cause and paired with the sentiment from PTI Penned Elegance. I created my own pattern paper using images from Papersmooches.  I felt I needed a little pop of colour so added a few red hearts.  The sentiment panel, dogs and hearts are all popped up with foam tabs.

My friend has 3 dogs and is very much an animal lover so I think she will like this card.

Until next time

Cheers

Head over to the challenge blog for more details and to see the prize
I have created a little card using my Lifestyle crafts nesting lace squares. I have adhered the main piece to a note card 7.5 cm x 7.5 cm.
To create the front of my card I used brand new (as I only picked them up from the post box Saturday!) SU Botanical Tags die along with angled tag punch, bird builder punch and sentiment from mini treat bag thinlits.  The pattern paper is old SU have a cuppa and other papers are crushed curry, old olive and chocolate chip. Various pieces were popped up with foam tabs.

Hope you find time to play in the challenge – remember no stamps! That can be a challenge in itself sometimes.

Until next time

Challenge#80: Flowers and more flowers
TWIST Bling it up! here
Remember there is a prize
I have tried to bling up my floral cards.
In a fruitless attempt to make a dent in my pattern paper I have used 2 pieces to create 2 cards.  I blinged them up with sequins, gold foil paper and glittery die cuts.
Some pretty pattern paper from Inspired by Stamping along with gold foil die cut sentiment from Elizabeth craft designs and a few sequins.  Today would have been my Gran’s birthday.  I think she would have liked this card.  She loved her flowers and butterflies (there is one in the top corner).

This one uses some vintage paper from MME Miss Caroline 6×6 paper pad.  There is a sentiment on the paper “start everyday with a smile”.  I added die cut flower and leaves (freeby with a magazine) and sequins.  I added kindy glitz first but wasn’t overally happy with the result so glued sequins on top!

Hope you find some time to join the challenge I’m sure you have some flowers and bling in your stash!

Until next time

Cheers

Crafty update…

Hello

A little dark, wet and cold here in Melbourne today.  A good day for snuggling up inside.

Here is a little update on my crafty pursuits – cause you know I have been creating a little just haven’t shared!

Firstly the back of my Bernat Hi Lo Jumper.  I have started the front however there isn’t much past the cast on to share just yet.

This is a pic of what I hope it looks like when I am done 🙂

You can find the pattern here

 

I am using Bendigo Woollen Mills Savanna Fog its 30% Alpaca and 70% wool so should keep me nice and toasty warm when I get it finished (fingers crossed before the end of winter!).

This is an update on my hexie hand pieced quilt.  I started making hexies a couple of summers ago as a summer project.  It gets worked on from time to time but as there is no finish date I am just working on it when I feel.  I am using scraps from some of my other quilts and off cuts along with new purchased fat quarters.  I purchased a hexie die so I can cut my own papers from cardstock.  I played with placement of the Grandmothers garden but decided they needed white to help tie them together.  The colours didn’t seem to fight each other as much this way.  This is a long term project and most likely a never ending line of hexies!

That’s all for now.

Off to tidy my craft room because I need to make some space on the desk before I can make a 21st card for tomorrow and a 50th Birthday card for next week.

See you next time

Cheers

Vicki
