#241 Autumn Colours

Marg is hosting today's challenge, Autumn Colours

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

Marg

I have created an Art Journal page. The base paper is by Tim Holtz and I have used Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals to add the colour. Added stamping, a bit of fibre ribbon and lots of layered ephemera to complete the page. Looking forward to seeing your creations! Have fun!!

Josephine

A very CAS card: A Woodware stamp set, stamped using a Kaleidoscope ink pad in Autumn shades, and coloured using Promarkers in similar colours.

Angela

I've made a Floating Diecut Panel card here. Lots of bits of left-over Masterboard but perfect colours for this theme. The dies were by Tim Holtz and I finished it with some Peel-Off Stickers from my stash. Detail of how to make a Floating Card are on my Blog X

Glenda

Autumn colours remind me of the reds and yellows of the leaves and the September birthdays of husband and brother. We have large forests in Alberta and the moose seems to reign supreme so I just had to use this image on a card for my brothers September birthday

Marlene

I have used an All Dressed Up image called Three Little Autumn Girls coloured them with Promarkers. Photoplay papers and Flowers. I like Autumn because of all the beautiful colours.

Judy

I just love autumn and the beautiful coloured leaves so I decided to take out my Pentart Alcohol Inks to make my card. I played with the inks until I found an pattern in the inks that I was pleased with. The leaves and sentiment are die cuts out of Tim Holtz's metallic copper paper.

Kimx

I love the Autumn. I love all the beautiful colours. It probably helps that my Birthday is in the Autumn, but I don't think that is the only reason.

I have chosen a beautiful old Stamps Happen stamp and a mop up background for my card.

Maike

I used a stencil by Altenew to create a background in autumnal colours and added this cute fox by Kulricke to it. Have fun crafting ;o)

Mary

This card uses various dies from Tattered Lace.

Jo
 
Lots of lovely distressed layers using magazine freebies - papers, image and die cuts....Tim Holtz stickers & gems from stash.

Lin

My lovely die cut leaf is from Craftwork Cards, originally Kraft, and I coloured it with Distress Oxides, and added some Pentart metallic wax to it.. more details on my blog.

Here is a romantic card with lovely colours and gorgeous handmade flowers from Little Birdie Crafts. For the background, I have used Lindy's Stamp Gang's magical shakers. I have used flatback pearls from my stash and cute sentiment from Tim Holtz.

Josephine

Some paper embroidery from me, with sticky gems completing the flowers.

Glenda

A romance card using die cuts, a craft flower with a large pearl center and 3 pearls attached to two corners of the card.

Judy

I created this card for a niece's birthday card using a digital image by Norma J. Burnell. I just love her images, so pretty. Once I had coloured my image with copics I added some Prima flowers and pearls to complete the card.

Angela

Made this card using layering stamps by Altenew. The background was Oxide inks and finished with a Bokeh effect. The sentiment stamp was from the same set as the Jelly Fish and I stamped the smallest ones onto the card blank, finishing the design with coloured pearls.

Marlene

I have used a cute stamp from Whimsy Stamps lots of flowers. Coloured with Promarkers

Mary

I matted cardstock from Hunkydory's Midnight Dots to Diamonds papercraft pad onto white card and added pearls to it. The hammerheads were cut using dies and paper from Sweet Design's Water World set. The stamp for the sentiment was from the same collection.

Margaret

This card was created for a dear friend of mine. She loves purples and lilacs so I felt this paper was perfect for her. I have decorated the card with heat embossing, a strip of dp down the center and a diecut and flower. A number of tiny pearls and gems were added to add some bling and pizzaz!!

Have fun with your crafting!!

Jackie

I know, I know.... but you have to start sometime! This is my first Christmas card of the year and I used distress inks to blend the background, a simple stamp and some gems and pearls for baubles.

Maike

I love this cute mermaid by C.C.Designs holding a pearl in her hand and thought she would be perfect for this challenge! The background was made using distress inks and a stencil by My Favorite Things. Happy crafting, Maike

Lin
My card was made with one of Leonie Pujol's gorgeous circus stamps, which I stamped with versafine and embossed with clear powder and then coloured in partially with three different Zig Clean Color brush pens. My gems are in the centre of the main image and around the base of the easel card. More information on my blog

It wasn't hard to find a card for this challenge, as adding a few gems to a card has become one of my favourite things to do.

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

#239 It’s A Bug’s Life

Lin is hosting today's challenge, It's A Bug's Life.

We would love to see your creations with Bugs/Insects on. Please don't make it a tiny bug in the corner of your project!!!!

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

Lin

My bug is a Mechanimals Grasshopper, Eye on the Prize, from SCAD. I made an art journal page to pop him on. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set. Please see my blog for more details.

Josephine

For this I created a background with Distress Ink on watercolour paper. I then used the dragonfly stamp from an issue of Creative Stamper magazine with designs by Crafty Individuals. I embossed the images with white embossing powder. For the central element, I embossed the same image with a dark blue embossing powder on to an offcut of the background and added some green and blue to that with Promarkers.

Glenda

I used a rubber stamp, butterfly punches and a dragonfly die cut. Coloured the image with Prismacolor markers and added some pearls to complete the card face.

Judy

I have been playing with my alcohol Inks and decided it would make a nice background paper for my dragonfly die. I had heard about using Kilz (a primer/sealer) on mixed media paper to seal the paper to be able to use alcohol on it. I also used several colours of Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops on the wings.

Angela

Stamps and stencils were used for this card with Tim Holtz Distress inks. The stamps are by All and Create and Tim Holtz. The stencils are by Crafter's Workshop and Imagination Crafts. A few gems completed the card. Details for making are on my blog. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Margaret

Created the background for my card with Distress Inks, stamps and embossing powders and then layered on a strip of paper, a diecut and a piece of floral lace. Details can be found on my blog. Have a lovely, crafty day!! Marg xx

Mary

I have used Hunkydory's The Lily Pond dragonfly die and the accompanying paper pad and matted the design onto black card. I added some bees cut using a Tattered Lace Peony Pavilion Accents die and a sentiment.

Jo

I wanted the die cut layered butterfly to be the focal point so did some simple matting & layering....added some die cut frosting, some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers & finished with a few faux pearls.

Played with this beautiful 3D embossing folder in a class recently which is just perfect for this latest challenge. Lots more samples over on my blog.

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