****The winner of the Joanna Sheen £10 voucher is No. 4 - Alison! Please email me so I can organise your prize, well done!
Now our winners for the Top 3 blinkie! It was extremely tough again as they're all such beautiful creations but the ones this challenge we have chosen are in no particular order...
Well Done girls, please grab your blinkie from the sidebar to use on your blog xFor our 4th challenge we are again kindly sponsored by La Pashe and Cardmaking with Imag-e-nation who have also donated the DT some items to play with so a HUGE thank you to them!
This time the prize is the full set of the new Christmas flippin decoupage which also include free inserts, a full set of the flippin teenagers decoupage which I have to say is brilliantly done! It is like a history of teenagers over the last 50 years or so up to present which I think would be fabulous if you printed the insert using a photo of a relative or friend dressed just like that! I'm sure most of us have had a Teddy Boy uncle or a hoodie nephew lol! Also included are 2 of the remember when sets (Series 5 and Series 6 in colour) some aperture cards and acetate so tons to play with and thank you once again La Pashe for your generosity!
Onto our 4th challenge which is 3D ELEMENTS. There is a tutorial/info post further down (or click here) to explain all about using 3d in your work. You can use anything you like so long as it has at least one 3d element on it (printed decoupage, peel offs, stamped images etc)
Please post your entry in the comments box at the bottom below Judy's card by Monday 5th October 12 noon UK time.
Lets see what the design team and special guest have come up with to inspire you!
La Pashe Santa in bath sheet , A4 Gold embossed sheet - front, A4 Gold mirror board - double sided, A4 Acetate, Red mirror board for matt, Posinattes - image from internet and printed onto special effect paper(pearl finish)(Crafters Companion) Gems from stash, Anita's clear Gloss
On the Santa image i have put gloss on the water and then added glitter before it dried.
I started with a square white card and added the pink octagonal frame. Then I put the Lagonda Wedding car by la Pashe off centre the remaining layers were added using Glue Dots.
The tins where stuck onto the silver *rope* which I made by taking some of the silver strands from some silver cord that I have in my Stash!
I used the new Flippin Christmas decoupage from La pashe - I choose the Father xmas sitting on the loo as its quite a funny card and makes a bit of a change.
I followed the instructions that came with it and stuck down my acetate with double sided tape in the centre and closed the card up, added the backing paper to the inside so that there would be a back drop for him, added the front first and built up the layers then turned over and added the back of him and built up the layers.
Looking at the card i felt it was not finished !!! So i hunted around for some holly, didnt find any so i settled for my leaf punch and punched out loads of leafs in four different colour greens - I then added the stem to join them all up and then glued on loads of little red beads to act as the holly
I used the flippin blank aperture card and one of the Flippin men sheets we received with thanks from La Pasche. I printed the inside page from a picture my OH took and has on the Internet. My mind has not been very imaginative with the outside, I am sure that we all go through a time when our minds are blank, anyway I decided to stick the leaves at the top from a kit I have had for some time, I used the card that I popped the leaves out of as a stencil and used chalk to make the other patterns on the front.
I've used a 'Remember When' decoupage that La Pashe were kind enough to let the DT use. It's very big and detailed, so I've kept the rest of the card quite simple. I've mounted the scene onto red coredinations card and silver mirri card, covered the card blank (a large 8" square card) with the same coredinations matted onto mirri card, then added a panel of mirri card that I've embossed in the big shot using the cuttlebug 'spots and dots' embossing folder. Finished off with a few silver card candy dots.
I used a decoupage design from La Pashe's Flippin Christmas range. There was a lot of cutting out (which I love).The designs are well thought out and it is very easy to see the order for making up the layers.
I used an aperture card specially designed to go with these sheets. You sandwich the acetate between the layers and then stick the front of the image to the window.
It is very easy to line up the back of the image to the front and so unusual to have a double sided 3d image.
You also get a themed sheet for the inside of the card and this has 4 separate sentiments on it, so that's 3 extra freebies once you have finished your card:)
I finished off the card by using some red and green chalk and a cotton wool ball to add a bit of colour to the front. I also used some Papermania peel offs and some clear holly stickers from the Forever Friends range.
I really enjoyed making this card. It is the first time I have used any La Pashe products but it won't be the last as they make such special cards.
I took the monsters from my patterned paper and cut them out and mounted them a couple of times. I elevated them and added googly eyes to really make them 3 -D. I added additional googly eyes in the BOO! I love how this turned out. (So do we!)
I have used one of the La Pashe Christmas decoupage scenes. I have put the stable scene inside a card blank, and have add some glitter to the star.
I have place the behind view on the front of the card and the front view inside. Just to be a be quirky. I have added some peel off border around the aperture.
When I saw this La Pashe Ferrari decoupage my immediate thought was of South Africa. A lot of car adverts are filmed around the Cape Town coast as the light is well... different! I can't explain it unless you've been there but it is! So with this in mind I wanted a beach scene as I remember watching the sun go down on llandudno beach there, no not the one in Wales lol! I created the scene using starburst stains and some black card for silhouettes and added the la pashe Ferrari 3d image. It needed something more so I have quite a saucy stamp of a naked lady in the water, I stamped her and coloured her with promarkers, added some sticky gems as jewellery and hid her blushes behind the car. Added a gret big brad with a rub on saying "Dream" - perhaps I should write "On!" underneath!
Okies onto our fabulous guest designer who is the marvellous Judy Laing! Judy might be familiar to craft stamper readers and her making the use of a sewing machine on cards look like childs play! Check out her banner, she coloured that image herself, wow! She is a designer for Sugar Nellie blog, Quixotic Paperie and The Sugar Bowl and she has created this gorgeous design for us using 3d on a stamped image so Thank You Judy!
