Monochromatic - Challenge #365 My Time to Craft

Hi Everyone,

This is a scheduled post due to my op, I'm here to share my DT card for the new challenge at
My Time to Craft ....the theme is Monochromatic.

I used a Simply Print Sheet 'James Laptop' from LOTV for my card, I die cut the image with one of my stitched squares matted on black, grey papers from The Works and the sentiment is from a stamp set I picked up in a euro shop in Spain last year. I don't have a star punch or individual star dies so I die cut a Starburst Flourish from Joanna Sheen then snipped it up to use just the stars. The little metal stars are Josy Rose.
A little twine bow finishes it off.

I hope you will head over to the MTTC blog and join in with this Challenge, we would love to see you all there :)

That's all for now

Wedding Couple

Hi Everyone,

I'm back with my second post today with a card I made with a particular challenge in mind :)

I die cut a panel with a large stitched rectangle and then cut the Bride and Groom from Joanna Sheen in 2 layers of white card and 1 layer of  foiled vellum. Finished off by stamping my sentiment underneath which is from Clearly Besotted 'Many Mini Messages' set

Have a great weekend,

Spring Bentley

Hi Everyone,

Ok so this is the 2nd post from yesterday or at least it would have been yesterday if I hadn't fallen asleep ...oops ;-)

For this card I used another DigiStamp Boutique image (I'm sorry but I think it's an addiction lol)
called 'Spring Bentley'

I coloured him with Promarkers and added a tiny punched butterfly I had left over from my last card.
The sentiment is also DSB.
I added the panel to a card base which was a lovely pink that matched the tulips perfectly :)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digi Choosday Challenge  Wk 08 - Anything Goes

Simple Vases

Hi Everyone,
Thank you my lovely crafty friends for all the lovely comments and well wishes on my last post, I am going in hospital on Saturday for a small op so hopefully will have some answers after that. Just want it all sorted really.

This is the first of 2 posts today for a couple of challenge entries :)

As I missed the last Butterfly Challenge I wanted to make sure I got my card in this time !


For my card I used one of the images from the 'Simple Vases' set and printed it 5 times !! so that I could paper piece the flowers using some gingham Pink Petticoat papers in pink, lavender and apricot (although that looks yellow in the pic) and the vase and leaves in sage. I punched my little butterflies out of the waste. The background paper is also PP (now The Lovely Studio) 
I have added pearls to finish.

I think I have managed to use all 7 elements from the wheel :) 

Back in a bit with my 2nd post,

Felt Flower

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope you are all ok, I'm having a few slightly worrying health issues at the moment which are affecting my mojo a bit so I have been looking for a few challenges to take my mind off those and well....challenge myself lol

I made this card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge where you have to use Felt, Cork or Canvas

My card uses Felt, Die-cutting and stamping.

I had loads of problems trying to get a decent photo of this card partly because of the tiny piece of vellum I used behind the flower, it is foiled and the foiling was reflecting so much that laid down was the best position for the card in the end I think.

The vellum is a snippet I found in my bit box which dates back to when I first started card making and bought a kit from Create and Craft which I think was Hunkydory. I die cut it with one of my Ebay stitched squares, my felt flower is cut using a Die'sire die and I have cut 3 flowers and layered them up then added a large cream pearl. It needed something else so I tucked in some little leaf stems that have been on my desk for ages.
Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted set 'A Little Sentimental'

That's all for now,

Butterfly Tag card

Happy Sunday Everyone !

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend whatever you have been up to, it is lovely and sunny here which always helps the mood doesn't it :)

The card I have to share with you here I am really annoyed with myself about as I actually made it for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge #94 and then just haven't had chance to blog it so I missed the end date for the challenge Doh !
Still I thought I would share it anyway...especially since I managed to use all 7 elements from the wheel !

I used a pretty tag freebie digi stamp from Buddly Crafts which I printed onto cream hammered card and fussy cut out, I inked the edge of the tag and the sentiment with Distress ink 'Broken China' which I think is why in the photo it has taken on a bit of a greeny tinge but it is definitely cream lol.
I coloured the little butterflies on the tag with Promarkers and added some nail heads to a few of the wildflowers. I found a little offcut of red gingham ribbon in my drawer so used that for the top of the tag then used a little piece of twine to add a cute butterfly charm.

The sentiment is one of the new clear stamps from DSB and I die cut that with one of my new stitched circle dies. The blue and cream snippets of paper are from my bit box.
Butterflies were a magazine freebie die and the corners are Tattered Lace.

I'm off now to make a card for the new Challenge to make sure I get that one in on time !
I will also be catching up on all of your lovely blogs,

That's all for now,
Hugs, Kaz xxx

Don't Feed The Birds - MAWTT Challenge #65

Hi Everyone,

It's time for a new Challenge over on the Moving Along With The Times blog and this fortnight's theme is chosen by Mrs Duck (The Duck's Doodahs) and she has wants to see creations using the second verse of her chosen song as inspiration.

I have used Seagulls (quite literally) for my had to be done living so near to the sea and in recognition of the 6 or so we get in the garden every morning pinching all the bread we put out for the other birds !

I have used a fun image from Lilyboo Designs 'Don't Feed the Birds'

I coloured the image with Promarkers and matted onto bright blue card, the papers are Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is one of the fab new clear stamps available from DigiStamp Boutique. I printed the image twice so that I could fussy cut one of the gulls and the life ring.
Finished off with some Josy Rose nail heads.

Pop over to MAWTT and check out my teamies fabulous creations, we look forward to you joining us :)

That's all for now,
Hugs Kaz xxx
