#222 Lots of Layers

Judy is hosting today's challenge, Lots of Layers

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Lots of Layers theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Judy

I made this card for my oldest grandson's birthday.  I wanted to make a card with lots of colour and layers.
 
Josephine
I've used a variety of stencils, stamps and distress inks to make the patterned layers, and a die set from Susan's Garden Notes for the centrepiece of this card.

Mary

I have used a Craft Creations 3D decoupage sheet and then matted the decoupaged image onto yellow card. After wrapping a ribbon round this I then matted and layered it onto green and then red card creating seven layers in all.

Margaret

This is a card I created for a friend's Birthday a little while ago but I felt it was eminently suitable for this Challenge. A very simple masculine card with plenty of layers and a little bit of machine stitching. Happy crafting everyone!

Angela

Hope it's not too soon for a Christmas card but I'm sure you will all be busy making them so here is an idea for you using layers of Christmas trees and there is a tutorial for making on my blog: Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Maike

I wanted to get the look of a lot of dimension, so I created this window sill scene using the cactus stamps by Jane's Doodles and this cute lady bug by Purple Onion Designs.

Marlene

I have used a Polkadoodles Stamp coloured with Promarkers used LDRS Die, Lace and Ribbon Roses with Pearls Die-Cut Flowers

Glenda
I used a clear stamp for the image, a fancy Spellbinders die for the border, and a Sizzix Thinlets die for the two bows. The butterflies are from a punch.

Jackie

As it is getting even closer to Christmas, I decided to make a multi layered Christmas card, using some paper from my stash and a Hunkydory Topper deck card.

Hello everyone, I made two gorgeous "Thank You" tags as DT inspiration. I have used Lindy's Stamp Gang magical shakers to create these colourful backgrounds and layered up so many fussy cut elements in cluster to make these beautiful gift tags. All the stamp sets used from Mudra Craft Stamps, I have also used some Tim Holtz distress inks for stamping. Hope you will love my creation. So much love.. xoxoxo.

Lin
My Lots of Layers card was for my SIL from my Daughter. It involves lots of different dies, a Kanban stamp and some Prima Paper.. Please see my blog for details

Jo
For my Lots of Layers card I used......lots of layers, die cuts, a beautiful image and finished with a large, layered snowflake.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

#221 Explosion of Colour


Angela is hosting our challenge today, Explosion of Colour

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Explosion of Colour theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Angela

Nothing explodes more than colour mounted onto black card. The background was made using a stencil and 3D gel to which I added Pixie Powders. The squares and leaf were cut using Sizzix dies and the dots were applied with white and black pens. I look forward to visiting you all and seeing what you come up with.

Josephine

I used a Fiskars piercing template and machine embroidery thread to make this, and framed it in black using a Tonic die for added decoration. And I'm keeping it to put on the wall of my craft room!

Mary

I used a David Wolverson flower decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen. I matted and layered it and three different card onto white card and added a bow made using three strips of ribbon recycled from garments.

Margaret

I cut a piece of watercolour card to fit my tag and used Distress Inks for the colourful background. I then dabbed gesso through a floral stencil and added some stamping. A floral cluster by Little Birdie, a leftover scrap from a diecut, some prills, microbeads and a pretty bow and my tag was done!!

Judy

To create this card I used Brusho on glossy card stock. I first stamped my card stock with several background stamps from my collection before I added the Brusho colours of purple and turquoise. To complete the card I added two laced butterflies that I also added Brusho colour to. My final touch was adding some white pearls and lace.

Glenda

Used a clear stamp from Inkadinkado titled Birds Galore, coloured with Copics and decorated with hand punched flowers. The leaves were die cut.

Maike

I used Copic refill colours on Yupo paper to create the background and added this beautiful butterfly by Stampin Up to it.

Jo

I chose to decoupage this challenge, I wanted the explosion of colour to be the focus so used a topper sheet building up the layers with foam pads to showcase those gorgeous poppies.

Kim

I created this card using one of Jane Gill's lovely floral designs. The central panel has been created with white embossing and colourful distress inks to give my Explosion of colour.

Marlene

For my Explosion of Colours card I used lots of Distress Inks flicked the colours with a Brush onto card then added stamps that came free with a magazine.
 
Jackie

My card is an exploding box card for a friend's son, who was 10. He likes gaming, so I took pictures of the characters and included them in the box.

#220 Fairies or Other Mythical Creatures

Before we get to today’s slightly late challenge, apologies pc issues again! I am sad to announce that the lovely Chanya 13 has left us due to work committments. I would like to thank her for all her gorgeous projects and wish her all the very best for the future.

Jackie is hosting our challenge today, Fairies or other Mythical Creatures

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Fairies or other Mythical Creatures theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Jackie

My card was made for a friend's daughter who was 5. She loves sparkle, pink, princesses and unicorns... so all made their appearance on this card. I used a hunkydory stamping pad and stamps and some images, gems and dies from my stash to make this rocker card.

Josephine

I've used a very old Crafter's Companion stamp set called Rose Bay Willow Fairy (or similar). I coloured skin and hair with Chameleon markers, and flowers and her dress with Crafter's Companion Glitter markers.

Judy

I decided to make a Halloween card with these Mythical Halloween Creatures for this challenge. The image is by The Paper Shelter and was coloured with PanPastels, Copics and pencil crayons.

Mary

I used the faerie wishes and moonbeam dies from Tattered Lace backing the moon and the wings onto shimmer paper. The design paper was printed using My Craft Studio CD ROM Mystical Wonders.

Angela

Made this using Lavinia stamps and dies with a background of watercolour paper coloured with Distress Oxides which was then layered onto blue textured card and a black card blank.

Margaret

When I was looking through my stash for something suitable for this Challenge I was surprised to find that I have nothing at all that I could use. No fairy stamps or stencils, nor any other kind of mythical creature at all! Shock!! Horror!! So, in the end, I decided to crochet this little Amigurumi Unicorn using a free pattern from the net!!

Marlene

I couldn't think what to make for this challenge, so I went through all my digi Stamps and found this one from Crafty Sentiments she is called Harriet the Little Witch,isn't she cute.

Kimx

My time has been very limited of late so I looked through my not so inconsiderable stash of cards to find something suitable for this latest challenge. This uses an old LOTV topper as its centerpiece and a background of white embossed butterflies from Chocolate Baroque.

Glenda

I used an image from Morgan Fitzsimmons tilted Fairy Child, coloured her with markers and Copics (flesh tones) and used paper from an older Michaels Razzle Dazzle paper pack.

Dr Monika

I've have no fairy in my stamps, so I have decided to use a free printable fairy image from Pinterest. I have used many different medium to create this art page, like some Lindy's magical shakers, Finnabair texture paste, iCraft stencil, some stamps and Artzone pearl metallic paints. I have also used Tim Holtz distress inks. For more images and details, visit my blog.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
