LiM 113

Hi fellow bloggers hope you are having a good Easter. I have been eating quite a bit of cake - shame to let it go to waste Lol! Still time for some crafting and this week's LiM is to use scallops.

I have used a scalloped edge base card and then added octagon spellbinders  - [one plain and one scalloped] layered in an offset way  and then offset on  a toning ribbon and then added 3 gems toning  with the stamped image.

LiM 112

Hi fellow bloggers
Hope you are having a good weekend.
I have been making some jewellery bits this week -about time really Lol!
Anyway back to this weeks LiM challenge - to use beads - this isn't something I would do on a card so was a bit of a task to think what to do,
Anyway I came up with this design.
I used: -
apple green vellum layered twice
spellbinders heart circles
wire and seed beads
cocoa memento
odd sentiment stamp
crafters companion glitter spray for a bit of bling

Letter card

Hi fellow bloggers - I have so much crafting to catch up on!!
I made a letter card for a friend this time as I had some news to share and thought this would be a nice way to do it.

I used cream card for a more vintage look as I had stamped and triple embossed the image [old free stamp from craft stamper magazine] to give a more aged look without too much distressing. It was matted onto moss green lattice frame from spellbinders and then I used the card builder set to make additional mats. The image was coloured in before being embossed. The pale cream ribbon [from paper chase] and caramel ribbon [from Mei flower crafts] finished off the framed image.

LIM 111 - frame it

Hi fellow bloggers - glad to be back as have had one lurgy after another for a few weeks and now hope I have shaken them all off!

The LiM challenge this week is to frame your focal point and as I have a friend who loves cats have made one to send her.

I cut out a frame with a sizzix embosslit and then stamped on the frame with cat paw prints from a set I got some years ago from Lakeland. I then stamped a cat on a blue plastic material and cut it out with a spellbinders oval and stuck inside the card. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

  • Memento black ink for paws and sentiment
  • stazon smokey grey for cat
  • spellbinders lacey ovals
  • lakeland catitude stamp set
