Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Christmas Challenge #452 Embossing wet or dry


a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Embossing wet or dry'.

Do pop over and see the fabulous inspiration from my teamies!


Here's my card... 






Recipe:
  1. Kraft card blank 
  2. For this card I just took a look in my green scrap folder. I came across a piece of pale green for the first layer - this was run through an embossing folder from The Works.
  3. I really liked the scrap of blue/green/brown that I used to die cut the sentiment (a Tattered Lace die from the Advent Calendar a couple of years ago) and the trees (unbranded dies).
  4. Finally three greenish gems

I hope you will join the
CHNC Challenge 452

Oddball Friday Freebie #67 - Hey Boo

I love receiving the Friday Freebie from Oddball Art Stamps
These are available when you subscribe to the Oddball Newsletter.

Oddball Art Stamps

Watch your email for this week's image - Hey Boo! 

I decided to use the images to add to the decoration on my altered box - I have already shown you pictures of how it looks so far:


This next picture show the front and some of the ATCs and ATCoins that are inside:



Today I have added some elements to the inside bottom:


I used a patterned paper from my stash to print images from Hey Boo! and added extra colour using Copic markers. I then used a variety of stitched dies to cut the various shapes, including the circles to go behind the bottle tops from Blue Zombie


I also made an ATCoin: the bat sequins are shiny purple...






Happy Crafting!

Addicted to Stamps and More Photo Inspiration #355



Here's my make for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More


Do pop over and see my teamies' makes!!


Today we have a photo inspiration!


This is also inspired by our recent trip to Fiji...


Once again I have used snippets of alcohol ink backgrounds to illustrate the sea and a palm tree. I then added a few tiny seashells... The card blank is a photo card blank with a circular aperture and I cut the palm tree freehand.



Hope to see your make in the Challenge!!


I will add this to Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippets Challenge


Happy Crafting!

Ike's World Challenges # 123 - Hats


Here is my make for Ike's World Challenges!


The current Challenge (#123) H is for hats 


and this is my midway post...




If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...




You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!


I did use this some while ago to make a set of ATCs - but I am already thinking of Hallowe'en!



I used Ike's Witch Silhouette - she is wearing a hat!!


I printed the image on a piece of patterned paper from a 12 by 12 paper pad from The Works. I layered this on a white card blank with strips of brown and skull paper (from my scraps) on the sides. I then added a witch and a hat metal embellishment to finish.


Hope you will pop over to Ike's World Challenges and see the Design Team's inspiration for the current challenge - and join in!
