DT: Creative Knockouts… anything goes

Hi!

How quickly the weeks go … how are we already mid August?

Well it is time for me to share another design team contribution, this time for Creative Knockouts where we have an Anything Goes challenge this week. There is a prize sponsored by Pretty Cute stamps so I encourage you to join in.

Here is the card I made…

I decided to have fun fussy cutting and using some old dsp …

This was a half sheet of 12×12 so it have me a big pile of fun flowers to use. I also had half a sheet of one of the other pieces of dsp from the pack so used some of that in the background and as a banner strip.

I decided to have a bit of texture with the chevron embossing folder and then the sentiment strip across the middle raised with the larger flower as the focal image. Of course I used the Biggest Wish stamp set again to do this … I really don’t know what I would do without this stamp set!

I added some of the smaller flower images around the card too and then added the panel to the right hand side of the card.

Inside I added one of the other flower images I had cut out.

Love this … it was actually quite relaxing doing all the fussy cutting and I still have lots left so will pop them in a little pouch so I can come back and use them on another project another time.

Happy crafting!

DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

Another month has passed so quickly… and it’s time to use up some patterned paper for Craftyhazelnuts challenge. I chose to do another one sheet wonder challenge.

I chose a graphic black and white paper and used the following template I had drawn up…

And I set to with the paper and black card to mat each layer.

Next I added some coloured cardstock as bases.

Then with white cardstock, ribbons from the stash and stamped images I made them up into fun cards.

One sheet wonder … errrm three sheets

Part of the Use them or Lose them challenge of the year is to use some of the paper I have stashed. I have been trying to use stuff from the scraps box where possible to try and work through that but there is also the mountain of uncut 12 x 12 sheets of dsp so I decided to do a one sheet wonder type project… although ended up using three sheets of DSP so I could get some variety.

I didn’t follow a osw cutting guide, instead headed over to Mojo Monday and followed a load of sketches from November and October 2015 to design the cards and cut everything up.  I added two sheets of Primrose Petals cardstock, one crumb cake and one wild wasabi plus a few bits and pieces of scrap cardstock that were hanging around the desk.

Next I started assembling, embossing, die cutting and stamping… and ended up with 15 cards for the box at work!
