Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Christmas Challenge #455 Add some plaid

a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Add some plaid, gingham or check'.
I am really sorry I didn't manage to put forward an inspiration last week - I'm afraid life got in the way...

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

Here's my card... 


I made a twisted easel card using a white card blank with a diagonal fold across one side and an extra square of white card.

  1. I then added layers of plaid - this paper came from  Décosse's Dynamite Doodles

  2. The image is  Snowball Fall Digi Stamp by Twistoon (Bloobel) coloured with Copics and silver Stickles.

  1. The sentiment is from Imagine That Digi Stamps

I hope you will join the
CHNC Challenge 455

Happy Crafting!

Limited Runs Progressive Challenge #30 Aug/Sep

This is the current progressive freebie image on Limited Runs Stamps Facebook page
 which I printed on some patterned paper from my stash. I coloured each part with markers and cut them out.

Image may contain: text

Still a couple of days to go!
I then used the images to make a set of 4 ATCs, using more scraps of card and an assortment of embellishments.

Happy Crafting!

Bloobel is back as Twistoon #3

I am so pleased to see that Bloobel has returned, now trading as Twistoon

It was quite funny when I spotted 
No Please
on facebook as I also had had an incident with a huge spider in our bathroom that morning!
And of course there was the bonfire we had in Australia when lots of spiders came out of the wood...

Anyway here's the card I made using the image No please:

I just printed the image, coloured it with Copics and die cut it with an oval die. I then added an orange distress ink around the edges.
I added this to a card blank layered with various papers from my stash, finally adding a die cut spider web and some embellishments.

Happy Crafting!

Nun and Skull with Horns

Just managed to cobble this together as we have had a horrendous week - ending up with Mum in hospital with a broken hip - this was only discovered after various Doctors' consultations and a lengthy visit to A and E. She had an operation yesterday and so far so good... in the meantime I have also been looking after Dad who is disabled...


For this inspirational make
I have used the image Nun and Skull with Horns coloured with Copic markers, and cut out with an arched die. I have also used a paper from Dots and Doodles

Once again I have used the Kinetic Fold courtesy of Mrs A and the Butterfly Challenge - my favourite fold of the moment!!

My card is inspired by the current Oddball September challenge Spooky Spirits First Day

Happy Crafting!

2. Moon is triple stamped in three distress inks and punched out. Kitchen Sink Stamps.
3. Tim Holtz tree die - cut from silver patterned vellum or card (my sister preferred the vellum)
