Patchwork Patti Birthday Wishes

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘I is for In A Line’.

You need to pick a line (diagonal, vertical or horizontal) and include those 3 things in your creations and list them in your blog post so we know what line you have used.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sherri Baldy – ‘My Besties’.

I’ve used the gorgeous Patchwork Patti image from Sherri Baldy for my card today and chose the diagonal line – Shaped Card, Lace & Dies.

I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are as follows:

Hair – E47, E44, E42, E40

We have a new challenge for you today over at Inkspirational Challenges and this time it’s a…….

So what you need to do for this challenge is pop on over to Yvonne’s blog and find a card that you would like to CASE.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything.

You card/creation needs to resemble Yvonne’s (and we need to be able to see the resemblance) but you also need to put your own twist on it. So you might wish to keep the layout or theme of her card but change out the image, papers & embellishments, etc.

We can’t wait to see what you all come up with so come join us at Inkspirational.

Here’s the card I chose to CASE of Yvonne’s.

Here’s my creation.

I’ve loved Yvonne’s layout for her card so I have kept most of this. I also stuck to her Christmas theme but have gone totally away from Yvonne’s vintage look to a cute Tilda card which I guess still has a vintagey feel with the dsp, sponging, lace, etc.

My image has been stamped onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin- E00, E000, E0000 R20; Hair – E44, E42, E40; Clothes – BG78, BG75, BG72 & BG90, Boots – C8, C6, C4, C2, C0.

I’ve added some liquid applique to her mittens and beanie and also Frantaged a little around the image. This was my first attempt at using Frantage and I managed to achieve the soft look I wanted (although I would have liked a little more of the gold) and best of all I didn’t make a mess…

Here’s a closer look at the image.

And another

For the inside of my card I’ve used some more of the DSP and another doily to tie it all together.

I love how this turned out. Hope you like it too. Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know.

Stamps: In the Snow Heart Tilda (Magnolia – Winter Wonderland), Petite Pairs (Stampin’ Up)

Christmas Gift Packaging

It’s time for a new challenge at Inkspirational Challenges and this time we have an

Anything Goes

challenge for you.

What I’m sharing with you today was from a Gift packaging class I held earlier this month. I’ve held off sharing the items with you all as I was intending on using one set for my Kris Kringle gift for my fortnightly stamp night with friends. That was last night so now I can share it.

I’ve decorated one of the boxes from the ‘Tag A Bag Gift Boxes’ and also a Kraft Gift Box using the Season of Style DSP and various stamp sets. The item in front is a chocolate holder made using the Envelope Punch Board.

Here’s a few more pictures.

The chocolate holder open.
