I have made another pocket letter - a collection of 9 ATCs which normally hide some freebie craft items and a letter behind - ready for sending to a friend!





I started each ATC with black card, then a scraps of paper from 
Bats and Bones
and 
Stay Creepy


I then added the pumpkins - coloured with Copic markers and cut out.
I added the sentiment to three of the ATCs - trimmed to size and distressed around the edges with Spiced Marmalade.



I then placed the ATCs in a sleeve:

Limited Runs Progressive Challenge #31 Sep/Oct

This is the current progressive freebie image on Limited Runs Stamps Facebook page
 and I am quite early this month!!




Today I have made a teddy bear pocket letter comprising 9 ATCs.



I printed the image 9 times, coloured them with Copic markers, then cut them out. Something I could do easily sitting with my Dad - Mum has been in hospital with a broken hip and is now in rehab, so Dad needs looking after...



I then used a variety of pieces from my scraps to make the bases and matting layers of my ATCs.



Finally I added ribbon bows and gems - these are 4 of the ATCs:



The next one uses two strips of stamped image in red and brown in the background.



 The next one uses a snippet of background formed by putting distress ink in an embossing folder.



You know those 'hanging' ribbons in garments - the small blue bows are made from some I cut out of some trousers...





I will add my Pocket Letter to Pixie's Crafty Workshop Snippets Challenge #361

Happy Crafting!

a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Add the word JOY'.


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


Here's my card... 






Recipe:

Once again I have 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. To start I added layers of paper from Molly's the Craft Designer WINTER paper pad.

  2. The image and sentiment are from Imagine That Digi Stamps

I used the Precoloured image and sentiment, with faux stitching around the edges with a red fineliner.


The sentiment was layered on white card and the paper and placed on dimensionals to form the easel stand.

Addicted to Stamps and More CAS #359








Here's my CAS card...for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More




Recipe:
1. White card blank.
2. I was going to stamp these Visible Image stamps from Christmas Chaos directly onto the card blank but having seen them against the white I decided it did need a little extra colour for this Christmas card.

3. I added a layer of pale blue 'water colour' paper to the card blank and stamped directly on this.
4. I added two turquoise gems.





Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Sew Sad Crying Skull

For this inspirational make
I have used the image Sew Sad Crying Skull  coloured with a Copic marker, and made into an ATC. I have also used a skull stencil to form my October calendar page:



The ATC part is basically the Oddball image cut out with a Tonic ATC collection die, a touch of colour added with the marker and faux stitching around the edge with a fineliner.


I added this to the calendar page on top of my skull element.


The skull element was made by putting black texture paste through a Visible Image stencil. I didn't like the totally black image so I removed some of the paste and used the Copic Marker to colour these areas red.


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


Happy Crafting!

The current Challenge (#124) I is for ICY 


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...

Victorian Street

I decided to use Snowman

SNOWMAN


I printed the image and coloured it with Copic Markers and then cut it out. I layered a white card blank with dark red card then the snow scene image from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. My printer may have delivered it in a slightly different colourway...


I added the image and the sentiment from Imagine That Digi Stamps on another scrap of dark red.
