Allsorts - Flower power

At Allsorts this week the theme is Flower power so bring'em on =)
I cut the image out of a Pion designpaper and made the big flowers with a Memory box die. Easy but very effective =).

SFTW and Sparkle & Glitter

I see absolutely no point whatsoever with snow after Christmas, waking up to a white landscape and -20 C is not my cup of tea. I know - I live in the wrong end of the world, and it's my own choice, but still... :)

Anyhow, I've got two DT projects for you today. Stampin for the Weekend has the theme Something girly and Sparkle and Glitter with RsD has Anything but square.

First out is Stampin for the Weekend and what can be more girly than Tilda.
Next one for Sparkle and Glitter is the jar you get when you buy Prima flowers, I've altered it using the gorgeous jester bear and it now holds pencils and brushes on my desk.

challenges Tildacard:
Marvelous magnolia - new beginnings (and a new puppy is)
Midweek Magnolias - in the pink with ribbons and pearls
Joanna Sheen challenge - new beginnings

challenges Jester can:
Bunny Zoe challenge - anything goes
Creative Inspirations paint - favourite stamp
Crafty Catz - anything but a card

Allsorts - Dies & Punches

I've had a good week! I spent my birthday trying out for a spot as baritone in the barbershop choir Snowflake Singers and I actually got it!! So yesterday family and friends came to celebrate my birthday instead of on the actual day and today I'm spending the day with my sister; spa, dinner and a movie.

Anyway, time for a new challenge at Allsorts. We want you to use dies and punches, not much of a challenge I know but since we all love our dies and punches it's great to be able to use them extra much this time =).

New technique

Well, it's new to me anyway. I wanted to make a paper bow since I don't always have the right ribbon handy and found Heidi's blog. So now I have made loads of paper bows on all sorts of projects - mostly on DT projects so I can't show them now. 
But this card I can show. It's a Saturated Canary image, using the distress inks Dusty Concord and Iced Spruce.

Saturated canary challenge - inspired by a song (That's what friends are for, Dionne Warwick)
Creative Inspirations paint - Case it (well, I cased the paper bow didn't I, hehe )
Stamping Sensations - Friendship

Allsorts - CAS

the first challenge for Allsorts this year is clean and simple - literally ;). A bit tricky for me cause I get horribly scared by blank spaces...
I used a MD ornament die and embossed the sentiment in gold.
This challenge is a bit sad though, cause it's the last one for Emma and Debs who have decided to leave the DT :(, they'll be hugely missed.

And psst... don't forget to pop by Rick St Dennis and pick up his freebie today!

Leftover Christmas

I've decided to make at least one or two Christmas cards each month this year so let's start fresh and blog the card from 2012 that I haven't shown yet. It's a card using a design paper bought a long, long time ago that I decided to cut into cause I got this fantastic ribbon just before Christmas and just had to use it right away =). I even made a matching gift tag. Image on the card is LotV, image on the tag is a digi from Spyder

My mums craft shop - anything goes
ABC challenge - embossing (the sentiment on the card)
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Live love crafts - something old (the paper)
Crafty creations challenge - anything goes
Creative Belli - snowman/winter
Lili's little fairies - something new (the ribbon)
Simon says challenge - new something

And finishing off the crafty session today by stating the obvious: I really need to clean my space!
Deep ocean challenge - show your craft space
