Allsorts - from boys to men

It is time for a new challenge at Allsorts and the theme is From boys to men. I used stamps from Tim Holtz and die cut the numbers for a birthday card. Clean and simple but quite effectful since the stamps definitely can stand on their own. I must say that my Pine Needles distress ink isn't frequently used but it was perfect for the bottle. The beer was trickier but I mixed Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade to get an ok result.

This is the last two week-challenge for the summer, next time - the 25th - we're back to weekly challenges again.

We are sponsored by Marianne Design and have these lovely dies for a lucky winner.

Allsorts - tags

Morning,
still warm and sunny and time for a new challenge at Allsorts. This one is also a fortnight long :) and the theme is tags, so create a tag och use a tag on your project.

I have started with the Christmas makings now - no time like the present - and made a Christmas tag, distressed a background using a honeycomb stencil, added a diecut tree and a banner, distressed and stamped with a sentiment.

Allsorts - Flowers all over

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and during the summer the challenges will last for two weeks to give the Design Team a well earned rest :)
The challenge this fortnight is Flowers all over, easy peasy right?
I made a card in blue and silver, the embossed silver swirl is from Stempelglede and to give the card a shabby look I smeared blue paint on the white roses and silver paint on the blue ones.

Allsorts - In my garden

This week at Allsorts Brenda chose the theme to be In my garden. I made a tag with cat tails, I don't actually have cat tails in my backyard but I would really like it. I just don't have enough space and flower beds... Ah well, some day...

Our prize this week its a beautiful floral stamp from Chocolate Baroque called Floral Harmony.

I made a round gift tag using the image Bently and bunny from Digistamp Boutique.

Allsorts - sweet treats

This week at Allsorts Susan set the theme to Sweet treats. I used a bonbon stamp that I borrowed a long, loooong time ago from a friend, I only had one stamped image left so I sort of freestyled it by hand to get three images on watercolor paper.  Then I coloured, cut out and fastened them on kraft card. It looks a bit too much CAS for me so I will probably add the name of the receiver in die cut letters (as soon as I know who the receiver will be, hehe).


We have a lovely prize from Marianne Design this week.
