#230 That Special Someone

Marlene is hosting today's challenge, That Special Someone.

As Mother's Day is next Sunday in the UK we would love to see your Special Someone creations. We appreciate not everyone still has their Mum, so just make your creation for a very special person in your life.

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 theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Marlene

For this card I have used a Vintage image, lots of Flowers, Pearls and Fanciful Flourishes

Josephine

I've made a card for my husband for our anniversary. The image is from a stamp by Dovecraft featuring Tatty Teddy as is the backing paper. The sentiment uses a stamp from a Ching chou kuik plate from Sweet Pea stamps. Both were stamped using Memento ink and Teddy was coloured with Promarkers.

Angela

I'm still using up this Masterboard but this time added a Memory Box die cut Poppy, PapperArtsy and Artistic Flair stencils then completed the card with gems, a button and Stickles Glitter Glue. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Judy
 
I made this card for one of my favorite grand nieces for her birthday. She is going to be 10. I used a fairy die cut for the card and layered it over so pretty designer paper from my stash. I completed the card by adding a fairy tale birthday sentient, gems and A Wink of Stella on the wings and sentiment to give the card sparkle.

Mary

I made this card for my sister's birthday. It uses the spring frame die from Tattered Lace and the downloads that accompany it.

Jo

I think for lots of us, after family the most special person in life would be a friend so that's who I made this card topper for. I used elements from Kanban, silver mirri card and finished with die cut flowers and faux pearls.

Glenda

I made this card for a dear friend from high school. I used die cuts, a dimensional flower, butterfly and some Stampin Up background stamps.

Margaret

I created my card for a very special lady who is celebrating a very special Birthday. She is the Mum of a very close friend of mine and she is turning 90 this year. I have used Kaisercraft papers, a piece of Little Birdie chipboard, diecuts, lace and a few flowers. Finished it off with a seam binding bow.

Have fun crafting! Marg xx

Jackie

My card was made for a friend who had her 70th birthday this year. I used some backing papers from a TL download that came with the die - 3D decoupage Harebells. The stamp in the centre and the sentiment was from my stash.

Lin

My Special Someone is my Niece. My card was made with a combination of a Sue Wilson die, Creative Expressions Stamp, Pixie Powders and a shaped card blank. Details on my blog.

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

#229 Make It Green

Marlene is hosting today's challenge, Make It Green. In honour of St. Patrick's Day next weekend, we would like your projects to be predominantly green.

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 theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Marlene

I have used a Paper Nest Dolls Image coloured with Promarkers and Spellbinders Die

Josephine

I've been experimenting with various techniques and the result is this journal which I'm going to use for crafty planning. The basis is the Eileen Hull/Sizzix Travel journal die and it's partly covered with Kraftex, and I've used various inks, stamps, dies and lace to complete the project.

Kimx

'Congratulations on your pregnancy', so I played it safe with Green. The image has been die cut from a calendar that was a free gift on a magazine many years ago.

Glenda

The challenge is green so I went with variations thereof. The birdhouse is a Beccy's Place image coloured with Prismacolor Markers and the embellishments are from Memory Box.

Judy

A friend gave me this pretty framed dragonfly and cattail die cut that I decided to use for this green challenge. The background of the card is done with alcohol inks in several colours of green. The dragonfly is coloured with green, white and clear Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Angela

Hi all. Made this card using AALL and Create and ALTENEW stamps. The die is by Lisa Horton. Completed it with Green gems and Stickles Glitter Glue. If you want to see more details they are available on my blog. Angela xXx

Jo

Hello, I chose to make a decoupaged floral card......lots of lovely layers matted onto gold mirri, green floral card then cream card. I added a sentiment & some faux gems to finish.

Mary

I used a stamp from Rare Earth's 'On this Special Day' set and coloured it using Promarkers. Green card, ribbon and pearls were used to put together my 'make it green' card.

Margaret

I have created a masculine card with some simple layers of paper, die cuts and chipboard. The sentiment is computer generated and the chipboard piece has been heat embossed. Have fun crafting!!

Agnieszka chanya13

Hello, this time I made a simple card with teddy bear. I used digi from I love digi and Craft O'Clock papers. Enjoy.

Maike

I have used an alltime favourite image (the panda) as my focal point, because I feel it is easiest for me to use a black and white image whenever I want the colour(s) to be the star of the show. Hope you don't mind the pop of pink ;o)

Jackie

My card was made using some images in a die cut book I had in my stash. I added the bakers twine in green, and the sentiment from stash too.

Dr Monika

Hello lovelies!! Here is my little mixed media tag inspired with nature and our challenge theme, which is green. I have used gorgeous supplies from Finnabair, Prima Marketing Inc and sea shells are from my stash. I hope you all will love it...

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