Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Angela




Hi all. For this project I've made a Star Book. Started with a Masterboard, no surprise there! A variety of different stamps and Tim Holtz dies then completed the front covers with some brass embellishments. You are going to love the designs my team mates have come up with and I look forward to visiting you all to see what you've made too.

Happy creating, Angela xXx

Josephine

Crafty gift personalisation! A friend really wants one of these cream jugs for her kitchen, and Amazon obliged. But it looks quite plain, so I added some tissue paper and stuck to that, some hand-made paper flowers. Nothing permanent - it'll just lift out so she can put real flowers in it when she gets it home.

Jackie

My project is a decorated gift box. It is hexagonal in shape, and I bought the plain box from The Works for a couple of pounds. I painted and stencilled the outside and decorated the top with paper flowers and a nice big bow!

Judy



My project is a Christmas Tealight Holder although I think I may use it as a hostess gift at Christmas filled with candies. I used an old pattern I had for the Tealight holder but modernized the process by using cutting dies to make the box windows. The images are by Bugaboo Digital Stamps.

Glenda

A simple creation using a fold out blank white box which I covered with Christmas paper and decorated with a die cut border and left over Christmas decorations.

Mary

I have made a gift box using Tattered Lace's handbag die and decorated it using the lavish poinsettia die and the Charisma ivy die and CD ROM also from Tattered Lace.

Margaret

Hello everyone. For this Challenge I chose to create an Art Journal page. I applied texture paste through a stencil and then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals for the colour. Added some stamping, a doily and a strip of lace along with a chipboard frame, a re-coloured flower and some prills. The quote was one I found on the net and simply printed out. Haven't the rest of the team come up with some fabulous creations! Looking forward to seeing yours. Have a fabulous day!

Today I made flowers from white foam. I coloured them with oil pastels. I added texture to the leaves with a mould.

Kimx

I chose to make some picture frames as presents, and to show off the littlest Grandchildren of course.

Marlene

I chose to make a gift bag with my We R Memory Keepers Punch Board

and a Dis Digi Designs Candibean Stamp and a Spellbinders Die

June

Something completely different and another hobby of mine. I made this cake for a friend's granddaughter's first birthday/christening day. It is covered in a very pale lemon sugar paste and, apart from the ribbon, was all edible

Josephine

I used a Gelli Plate and acrylic paint with stencils to create the background. The flower and 'Thanks' were die cut, and colour added using Pan Pastels.

Mary

I used a Holly Hobbie stamp called a bouquet of happiness and coloured it using Promarkers. The dies used were from Tattered Lace's velvet lace mini ruffle square set.

Judy

To make my Many Thanks card I used alcohol inks in autumn colours along with a set of unmounted rubber stamps that the maker of the stamps escapes me at this moment. The sentiment is an old Stampin Up stamp. I added ribbons and gems to complete the card.

Angela

For this card I applied distress oxide inks direct to the card blank and then stamped onto it. Added the sentiment and Tim Holtz die cut flowers. Finished this with matching coloured pearls. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Jackie

My stepper card was made using elements from a kit I had in my stash, origin unknown, I am afraid! The backing paper was part of a World of Paper set that accompanied a Pollyanna Pickering DVD.

Glenda

I used a MHK digital stamp depicting the friendship of a cat with a cow. I used this specific image for a card to be send to a dear person who lives on a ranch and often shares her harvest with others.

Margaret

Hello everyone! My card is a rather masculine one. Lots of layers with Kaisercraft and Prima papers. As well as the tags, I have added a piece of 2Crafty Chipboard (coloured with VersaColor Stamp Pads), a metal clip, a Spellbinders die cut, two handmade clock flairs and some knotted twine.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries!! Have a lovely day!

Today I have a card with green and blue combo with lots of flowers and little angel.

Marlene

I have made this card with Wild Rose Studio Papers and a Cheery Lynn Banner Die. The Image is of Poppies coloured with Promarkers

#198 Spooky

Glenda is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Halloween.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it follows the Halloween theme.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Glenda

A card made using Stampin' Up's 'Best Friends' Halloween stamp set (an old set from many years ago). I used Halloween colours , some die cuts (Spellbinders & Cuttlebug) and a Martha Stuart punch to create the above scene. See my blog for all the details.

Angela

This is a layered card with one of may Masterboards as the base, stamped acetate above and finished with Tim Holtz dies, black brads and a metal embellishment. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Judy




For my spooky project this week I decided to make an altered shoe box to hold my Halloween candies for my special little trick or treaters that appear at my door on Halloween. To alter my box I used some Halloween napkins and scrapbook paper along with a skeleton which was part of an old Halloween project years ago. I added a light in my box so that the eyes of my skeleton glowed.

Mary

I used an image from Hunkydory's Little Book of Autumn and matted and layered it onto navy and white. After outlining it with orange strips of peel off I decoupaged the image.

Jackie

I always struggle with halloween, because it's not my thing and I really don't like spiders! So my offering is a kind of cute monster card made using distress inks for the background and hunkydory stamps and masks.

June

The Halloween paper has done most of the work for my card. I added black card to the card base then 'Stickles' in black to the eyes of the skeleton, one of the bats and the flag/branch under the cobweb. I also inked around the edge of the card with a 'black soot' distress ink pad.

Happy Halloween......

Margaret

Down here in Australia, Halloween is not as big as it is elsewhere. Although it is becoming more and more popular, my family and friends don't participate at all and I don't actually have anything in my stash that could be considered spooky. I did want to contribute to this Challenge though so, I created a tag using the Halloween colours of black, orange and purple.

Not spooky, but still Halloween-ish??!!??

I think you’ll all agree there is a lovely variety of inspiration from the team above!
