#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

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!!


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


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


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

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