Anything Goes at The Outlawz

Happy Monday

The sun is shining down today here in my little corner of the UK and we have a new
  Greetings Card Challenge at The Outlawz.  
My dear friend and co-leader Linda W is hosting this weeks challenge, and our lovely sponsor is

My card uses the image JULIE JOPICS

I just fell in love with this image, and as I think she looks like she is in her PJ's the sentiment from Hampton Art fitted perfectly (and I have been waiting to use this sentiment for a very long time)
I coloured her with Copic markers and cut her out with SB - Classic Squares, the beautiful frame is a recent release from SB - Lovin' Diamonds. The flowers are from my stash, and the sentiment is cut out with SB - Classic Ovals.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the challenge!

613 Avenue Create

Happy Sunday

The weather here in my tiny corner of the UK is a little cooler today, but we are told there is a heatwave coming early in the week, but should only last a couple of days, I am told temperatures will exceed 30!

Now for the crafty stuff!

This week over at 613 Avenue Create , the theme is as always "Anything Goes" with the optional twist of using Roses and/or Pearls as the flower for June is the Rose and the birthstone is the Pearl.

We have several lovely sponsors for this challenge including 


I have made the following card with Flower Art Prints from Crafty Secrets

The DP is from another of our sponsors this week

The set is called Birds & Blooms

I used the SB die Seed Packet, a long retired one I am afraid to feature the Roses for this card.

My next card uses the pre-coloured image from Bugaboo called Rose Monster

The sentiment is from my stash and the die cuts are SB - Roses and Thorns. I used SB Curved Squares to matt and layer both the image and sentiment.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the challenge

Happy Thursday

This week at Creative Moments we have as always Anything Goes, with the optional twist of a creation for the man in your life/Fathers Day
Our lovely sponsors are

I got a little carried away with the Deedee's images, I think because I usually find masculine cards such a challenge, but Deedee's pre-coloured images are such fun to work with and make masculine cards quick and easy!

Using Vintage Media
 The DP is from the set, and the woodgrain embossing folder is a 6x6 from X-Cut.
I cut the image/sentiment and layered it using SB 5x7Matting Basics A & B

 Using Grillin' & Chillin'
 I fussy cut the little images from the set and used SB Labels 46 for both the main image and sentiment

Using Sing Praises
 The image was cut with my paper trimmer and layered using my Perfect Layers tool. The sentiment is cut and layered with punches. The die cuts are SB Inspire - Prickly Pear

Outlawz Greetings Card Challenge

Happy Monday

The sun is shining in my little corner of the UK and at last I seem to be on the mend after a small op on my toes! I had some tiny kittens come in, who were so poorly with a viral infection I sadly lost 3 out of the litter of 4. I am hoping the last little one will be home today as it has been in the vets since last Thursday. 

This week it is time to emboss it over at the Outlawz Greetings Card Challenge 

Our Fab sponsor for this challenge is

My card uses the image Green Fingers and Thumbs

I used a Crafters Companion Textures embossing folder for the background, called leaf vein and also a Cuttle Bug folder from Freshly Picked. I cut out the image & sentiment with SB - Classic Ovals Large and matted them on to SB Oval Bliss. The Leaves are from SB - Flower Bundle.

I look forward to seeing your creations in our challenge
