New 'Anything Goes' Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

I'm back to share to my card for the new 'Anything Goes' challenge at Ally's Angels.

This month I have made a criss cross card, you might have guessed it, but I love making this design:).

I chose to colour up a whimsy stamp called 'Dolly' for this card and coloured her with distress reinkers.

The gorgeous papers are by Maja, I've had these in my stash for quite a while, but didn't want to use them.

The card stand was cut from a Joy Crafts die and the tiny tags are from a set of stamps by LOTV.

The pearls, lace, pearl trim, flowers and ribbon are from my crafty stash.


DI list:
Skin: Vitnage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick
Hair: Antique linen, walnut stain
Coat: Flowers and Shoes: weathered wood
Dress: Weathered wood,antique linen
Flowers: Scattered straw, weathered wood


Below is the sentiment. I have stamped the it with a versmark clear ink pad, sprinkled on silver embossing powder and heat set it.


Ally is offering the prize below to the lucky winner



That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Happy crafting:)

New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have actually managed to do a little crafting for a change. It is my husband's birthday at the end of the this month so I am working on a card for him. Male cards are definitely not my thing!

 This evening we are kicking off the first challenge of the year at Ally's Angels and as always it is 

Anything Goes

For this challenge I coloured up a sweet maggie from the Spellbound kit.

With making Christmas cards for the past few months, I have missed colouring in pink so it was a good excuse to use to get the pink distress inks out again.


DI colours:

Skin: Vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick

Hair: Walnut stain, antique linen

Dress & ballet shoes: Victorian velvet, aged mahogany

Gloves & crown: Hickory smoke


The dies I have used on this card are all pretty old, in fact I haven't bought any new ones for a long time.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid crafts and the lace and ribbon are from my own stash.


Ally is offering this gorgeous set of heart dies to the lucky winner

First challenge for Creative Inspirations of the Year

Good morning,

I hope you all had a good Christmas and Happy New Year. Let's hope it is a healthy and safe one for us all!

The first challenge of the new year for Creative Inspirations is a nice simple one. The theme for this month is .....

Anything Goes

The Paper Shelter are sponsoring us this month and they have very kindly provided the DT with a gorgeous floral design called In Bloom. I must admit Idid struggle with this one as it not my usual style of image.

I have used distress reinkers to colour the flowers.

I cut the shape of the card with a square die and made a frame using the same set of dies. To give the frame some dimension I fixed some foam tape on the back and added some pearl trim around the oustide of the frame.

The butterflies were cut from a joy crafts die.

The flowers are from my own craft stash.

The Paper Shelter  are sponsoring us this month and the prize is 3 images of the winner's choice.


That's all from me today.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Happy crafting:)

Hugs
