Happy New Year & A Freebie Alert


Well here we are in 2017 and I hope all of you have a happy and healthy new year

I have 3 cards for you today 


Firstly the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create  and the theme is as always Anything Goes, with the optional twist of Totally Technical (show us one of your favourite techniques). This challenge is now "Just for Fun" so no sponsors and prizes, but still a wonderful way to show off your beautiful creations.

My card uses the stamp set from Newtons Nook called Naughty Newton, I have also used the matching dies as my technique is partial die cutting.


The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and the DP is from my stash.
The inside of the card reads


The theme this time is Monochromatic

Our lovely sponsor is 

My card uses the image Gouda for You


I used Spellbinders Confetti plate for the background and a pierced oval die from my stash. The image is coloured with Copic markers



This week I have the pleasure of hosting the challenge and the theme is Something New, this could of course be the New Year or New Baby, but also new to you techniques, or crafty goodies, or even a new image, and as we have a lovely new sponsor

Tory Tale is also offering everyone a new image for free, the image is called Sweet wishes and you get an extra chance to enter the challenge using this image. The details are all HERE

So using the lovely image Sweet Wishes this is my card


I used a new die by Spellbinders called Frame Maker and also a new stamp from Lawn Fawn called Woodgrain Backdrops, both in my stocking from Santa. The sentiment is from my stash and is cut out with Lawn Fawn's Extra Sentiment Banners.

Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Happy Tuesday

This week over at the Outlawz Greetings challenge the theme is Anything Goes. We have 2 lovely sponsors this week 



My first card uses images from the Melonheadz Bundle - Ugly Christmas Sweater

Outside

I used a 7x7 card base and cut a piece of red card stock to the same size, I then used Tonic Baby Rudolf to cut the aperture in the card. After embossing with Crafters Companion Cable Knit embossing folder,  I added the green strip and created the neck piece with Spellbinders Classic circles, these were then embossed with Cuttlebug Distressed stripes embossing folder. I stuck everything down to a thin sheet of yellow card and assembled Baby Rudolf by cutting him out several times in different colours.

 Inside



I created a pop-up card using Lawn Fawn's Every Day Pop-ups, added Spellbinders Stylised Trees to the upper part of the card and First Edition Baubles cut out of silver and gold glitter card.

I used a chevron background stamp and distress ink to colour the jumper, then adding Stickles to the chevrons for some more dimension.


My second card uses the Robyn's Fetish image Cabin in the Woods


I printed the image on watercolour paper and used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to colour the image. I created the scene with Lawn Fawn's Forest Boarders and Grassy Hillside Boarders.  I then created the frame with Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics and decorated it with Lawn Fawn's Jump for Joy. The sentiment is also by Lawn Fawn and is Celebration Scripty Sayings.
