As our "ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE" continues...

I thought I would share my latest makes with you.  I've used Gerda's very cute images from StampFairy.com together with Papertrey Ink's Tag Sale 2 Die to create some Christmas tags.

The beauty of using digi stamps is you can make them exactly the size you want! 


 
This challenge doesn't close until midnight Tuesday 7th December (NZ time) so there's still plenty of time to share your projects with us.  Please scroll down or click here for challenge information.  Happy Crafting !

I love using the cuttlebug butterfly cut and emboss die.  I have used designer paper from Rosie's Serenity, ribbon, rhinestones and the craft concepts scrollwork embossing folder.  I also used little paper roses.
You can click here to see some other cards I have made.

I've added texture to my cards with machine stitching, lace and button twine together with layers of gorgeous Material Girl papers from Cosmo Cricket.  I cut flowers from felt and kraft cardstock adding detail with a button and decorative pins.  The butterfly was made using layers of kraft cardstock topped with paper to add dimension.  I was on a bit of a roll with these cards, you can see another one on my blog here.

IT'S A WEE BOY THING

Hi to all....... 

Today is a lovely sunny hot day here in my part of the world.  I have spent the morning at my youngest daughter's school at Discovery Time, taking craft making .  The children made cards and bookmarks.   The kids just love it.  

Now I'm back home and into making some cards for friends and family who have just had
babies.  








There's still time to take part in our One for the Boys challenge.  Please scroll down or click here for all the challenge information, we would really love to see your creations

I made patchwork using papers from Making Memories Just Chillin (boys) papers and cut it out using one of the Spellbinder Label 1 dies.  To give my card a more grunge look I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink and stamped an ink splodge with Stampin Ups Close to Cocoa.
