Love Will Call

I took my inspiration for this card from this song called "Love Will Call" by a New Zealand band called nomad:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSJj9mMgHZ4

I love the scenery in the video for this song so included the clip in case any one would like to have a look (and if they aren't familiar with the song).
And here is the card:

Crafting With Friends - Anything Goes
http://crafting-with-friends.blogspot.co.nz/2017/07/challenge-47.html

Last Christmas I received a bar of chocolate from one of the local businesses in a blue packet.  I kept the folder packet as I thought it would be great to recycle it for this Christmas.  Since the challenge at Catch The Bug had a twist of non-traditional colours it was perfect!  I printed the image out three times (one flipped so it was facing the other direction).  I also printed out a sentiment from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring of the images is with copic markers.  I die-cut one of the images into a tag shape using a Tim Holtz Alterations Die.  I used the tag for the reverse of the packet to add the recipients name.   I bought the ribbon used on the front and on the tag (chopped in half) from a Japanese store which had craft items that I hadn't seen before in the usual stores I shop at!  I also added some 3D kiwiana embellishments and two glitter stars.

I have used a paper from a christmas paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  The stocking has been die-cut from green cardstock using a die from Memory Box.  I then backed it with red cardstock - which required a bit of fussy cutting!  I also added a sentiment, a star puff sticker and some round puff stickers.

One Paper Layer Only

I have to admit to struggling a bit with inspiration for this one!  The theme this fortnight at Incy Wincy Designs is One Paper Layer only - and if you struggle a bit with this theme too have a look at what my fellow DT members have created here.  This challenge our sponsor is cute as a button.


I used a couple of stencils from Tim Holtz together with two colours of Distress Oxide (also a Tim Holtz product!).  The image from cute as a button is coloured with copic markers and Inktense Pencils.  I stamped a sentiment using an acrylic stamp from Clear Impressions.

With Love This Christmas

I have had this paper for a while but always found it too overpowering colour wise for cards I was making.  With this particular image and the sketch I followed, it was perfect!

Throw Kindness around like confetti

A while back I started three canvasses for my dining room wall.  I completed two of them but the third one has been prepped but otherwise blank until now.  The challenge at Scribbles Designs for July was just the inspiration to complete that third canvas.  So, this month our theme is "Use your noodle to doodle" - simply use a doodled image or add your own doodling!  There are plenty of ideas in the challenge post which you can find here.

I used an image called Throw Kindness from Scribbles Designs.



Colouring is with copic markers.  I also used some Tim Holtz stencils, texture powder from Art Ingredients and mini art stones from Art Ingredients.   There is also a doily behind the image that I painted with gesso and then coloured with a copic marker.

Third Time Lucky?

This is my third attempt at entering the challenge at Marianne's Designs.  First time, I forgot to list the dies that I used, second time the challenge didn't translate correctly into English!  Hopefully, this time I've got it right!



I have used the following dies from Marianne's Designs:
LR0195 - English Roses
LR0196 - XL Flower and Leaf
LR0270 - Anja's Vintage Ornaments
LR0291 - Pump (Stilleto Shoe)

I used a paper from Bo Bunny along with some cardstock offcuts to create the background.  I used the English Rose unrolled as a background to the pump.  I inked the pump with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to bring up the details on it.  I used the XL Flower pieces (all three sizes) to die-cut the flowers four times using Foamiran. I shaped the foamiran flowers using a low heat iron and added a bit of colour with a Playcolour Art Gouche Solid Paint stick.  Once the flowers were layered I added stamen to each of them.  This was the first time I had made these flowers and I think that it is something I want to try again.  I also used some organza ribbon.
