#223 Anything But a Card

Angela is hosting today's challenge, Anything But a Card

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, except a card!!! So a scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, will be fine as long as it is not a card.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Angela
Hi all. I'm your host for this challenge and really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. This little journal was made using the Eileen Hull Wrap around Journal die, Dylusion stamps and stencils and finished with gilding wax and Dew Drops.

Josephine

I've decorated a Hobbycraft basic tote bag using various stamps and Versacraft ink. I used the same ink for colouring. I finished the bag with a couple of hand-crocheted borders using a pattern I got from Exquisite Trims in Thread Crochet by Caitlin Sainio.

Jackie

I made a clock on my scan n cut, using a cutting file from Dreaming Tree. The clock workings and hands came from Amazon. The flower centres were coloured using distress inks.

Judy

For my Anything but a Card project I made an altered bottle. I painted gesso and chalk paint on the bottle then used distressed ink to do some highlighting. I also used some gold string and lace to give the bottle some interest. The image I used for the bottle is a free vintage from Graphic Fairy.

Mary

My eldest grandson has just turned eighteen and as I cannot afford to give him a car I decided to make this model for him using a die from 3Diemensions.

Margaret

I created a small Masterboard with a mix of Distress Inks, gesso, stencils and stamps. Cut a piece of it into a tag shape and embellished it with a diecut, a piece of pretty lace, a flower cluster and a butterfly. Added a little quote and it was done!! Happy crafting!!

Marlene

To make this tag I used a lot of Distress Inks Butterfly Stamps and embossing powder, and added some Ribbon

Glenda

Notepad Holder made with cardstock, designer paper, a few dies and some magnets.

Lin




I made two sleighs for Christmas decorations. Details on my blog

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

#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!
