#DYICAD2019 week 2 round up

This week the theme for Index card a day challenge is…And the prompts are…So here is what I made…

Some fun and different cards this week and considering how poorly I’ve felt I am pleased I managed to still get a little bit of creativity achieved.

Happy crafting!



DT: CHNC: non-traditional colours

Hello! This week Hazel has challenged us to use non traditional colours for our Christmas card make for the CHNC blog.

This is what I came up with…

I used some papers I had had for a long time in the stash that are pink and lime and then added this fun embossed image.

I brushed over the image with my clarity stencil brush to define the image.

I also added an embossed sentiment from Blonde moments and the peel off strips to add a different texture.

Happy crafting!


Bits and pieces Artist Trading Coins

The swap theme for this month’s swap is bits and pieces and I decided to just go with stuff that was on the desk to make three coins…

This resulted in an eclectic mix of coins.

This has a fabric background that I sewed before cutting to size and then some random bits from the stash.

This has a decent amount of beads and glitter and lots of resin flowers from Artful Days Goodie boxes.

This is a scrap of painted paper and another painted paper die cut and then a wooden laser cut word I added black gesso to it.

Love how these came together easily and using just bits and pieces off the desk.

Happy crafting!


DT: Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog: nail polish technique

So this fortnight the challenge is nail polish technique. Now this was new to me but great fun!

I started with shaving foam in an old canvas and then dropped in some nail varnish, one of which is shimmery. Then I pulled some prints…Love the marbled and random effects…I decided to use the prints as a background and to paper piece a Gorjuss girl.I coloured her with promarkers and chose promarkers to edge the panels too.Love the shimmer in the nail polish paper. So cool!

Finished off with some card candi, some gifted die cuts and a butterfly and some Tranquil Tide cardstock.Still got some prints left to play with on another day, so will no doubt share what I do with them when I get round to using them!

Happy crafting!


#DYICAD2019 week 1 round up

Whilst I’ve been ill I have still managed to do a little creating by joining in with the Index Card a Day challenge hosted by gypsy999 on Instagram. I don’t always follow the prompt (e.g. didn’t do reflection and instead the flowers one is a random one I made during this week)…

Here are the cards I made for the first week…

There is also another theme for each week and this week the theme was …

Hopefully you can see I tried to keep to that for this first week even though I went off prompt.

Will be back in a few days to share week 2!

Happy crafting!


DT: CHNC: winter fun

How quickly did that week disappear? For me unfortunately the week was spent in bed poorly but never mind. At least I had this prepped in advance … another design team project to share with you. This time the theme at CHNC is Winter Fun. I used a stamp from a magazine set and coloured it with promarkers. Love the little figures all whizzing by on their skates!

I die cut the circle and edged it with my pen and then added it to a card I had already made up with the Papermania papers and some red cardstock.

I finished it off with a Tim Holtz sticker sentiment and some sequins.

Hope you like this. Now off to see what the rest of the team did for their winter fun!

Happy crafting!
