Allsorts - use a mask or a stencil

I'm in charge of the challenge at Allsorts this week and I want you to use a mask or a stencil when you create your project. I know there are loads of pretty, pretty paper out there but sometimes it's fun to create your own by using a mask or a stencil and some sort of paint. I hope you feel the same way and will be able to join us this week. The DT created wonderful projects for this challenge, but then again they usually do :). My contribution is a card with an old Hanglar image. I think the old Hanglar stamps are absolutely adorable, it's so sad they are so hard to come by these days cause there are some that I don't have :(.

 To make sure there are no doubts about how I used the stencil I've added a photo of the backing paper I created :). Ordinary white paper that I distressed softly with DI weathered wood and spun sugar, then I put on the swirl stencil and spunged with DI frayed burlap. I finished it off with a stamp from Stempelglede.

Allsorts - sentimental

Oh dear, I'm so late with this post! I think it's the confusion and half panic over having to start work on Monday that cause it.
Today it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and the theme is All Sentimental where we want to see a meaningful sentiment as focal point on your project.
Once again I got use of my beloved stamp set from Winnie and Walter and heat embossed the sentiment, clean and simple :).

Allsorts - favourite things and GDT for PB@Allsorts

This week at Allsorts the challenge is Favourite things - well, not much of a challenge but a wonderful theme :)
Since I love paper folding I took the opportunity to make a gift box and I used my favourite designer paper - Maja Design. The box template is called Push over and is from My time made easy. The top flower looks really messy - again the crappy camera man needs to be fired - but it's white acrylic paint and glitter :).

And it's my turn to be guest designer for Penny Black and More. The theme there is Anything goes. I made a wedding card using papers from Maja Design.

Allsorts - Time for tea

This week at Allsorts we think it is Time for Tea. I made a gift box, filled with green ginger tea and two tea infusers. The box was a summer present for our chorus director - hence the tag :).

Allsorts - Fairies

This week at Allsorts the theme is Fairies and since we are sponsored by Nicecrane Designs, that has the most amazing digital images, I used some from the Fairies and Angels collection when I made this gift bag. Not overly decorated but I think the images don't need that :).


Other challenges:
That craft place - anything goes
