HIMCR #340 - Buttons or Bows


Here's the next Challenge - HIMCR #340 - Buttons or Bows!

The sponsor is The Paper Shelter!



The giveaway is a $15 gift certificate to The Paper Shelter!

Here's my make:


I have made an easel card using a precoloured image and background from The Paper Shelter.


I decoupaged the girl by cutting out a second version and adding it with dimensionals.
On the stand I added ribbon and button bows.




Hope to see your make in the HIMCR Challenge...

Happy Crafting!


Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Challenge #373 - Use a little Green


a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new  weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Use a little green'.



I started with a green card blank matted with some DP from my stash.
I then added a rectangle of sparkly green card and then a pale green die-cut - not sure where this die came from.




I hope you will join the challenge...



Happy Crafting!

 twisted easel card I made in 2016...another anti-Valentine!!






This was Valentine Digi Stamp from SLSLines coloured with Promarkers.




The base and easel were matted and layered with DP from a MME Cupid's Arrow No.14 Paper Pad. The die cut heart stand was on dimensionals and was stamped with a rubber stamp from my stash - not sure of the origin...I also added smaller die cut hearts here and there...



I added sequin covered hearts and some big pearl hearts...

and something I have made for this hop...I am continuing with my postcard flip book.



'My Dark Valentine' is one of Leigh's sentiments - find them here


Those of you who have seen some of my former craft makes developing over days
 will know that they are always a work in progress.
I tend to add more embellishments, a bit of doodling and so on as I go along.

A case is point is this postcard:


I decided it needed a little more - so I added Leigh's freebie from the Poe hop - photo taken in artificial light I'm afraid...



Next I have the next sleeve and postcard:


I was thinking about roses as I had made these table decorations for a Valentine meal today...



The sentiment on the sleeve and the image on the postcard are from MHK Designs
Rosy Elements. I printed them both on a Imagine That! Digistamps paper and added colour with Zig real brush pens.
 I printed the quote on the computer.



More tomorrow...


Happy Crafting!
