Shades of One at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  Most of you know that I started a new job about three weeks ago.  The job was full time but on a 6 month temporary contract.  Yesterday my boss offered me a permanent contract.  Unexpected to happen so soon but very welcome.  At least I know that I will not have to start job hunting again in 6 months.  I certainly must have made an impression lol.

Today I am here to share some inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Shades of One

Here is my inspiration project using an image from one of our sponsors Bugaboo Stamps.


I decided just to add some colour to the circular image by using distress ink.  The backing paper was in my scraps box and I used purple pearlescent card for the matting.  I lightly coloured the doily with some more distress ink.  The embellishments were all in my stash.

Thanks for popping by.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full challenge details.

Mid Month Inspiration for Imagination Crafts

The large star is an MDF charm from the MDF kit and this was coloured with promarkers and glittered.  I added a sentiment to the centre and some small stars from my stash.  I also attached some ribbon to hang it up.

Guest Designer at Little Claires

Hi Folks
Today I would like to share my inspiration project for Little Claires challenges.  I would just like to say Thank You to Little Claires for asking me to guest design for August and September.  I have really enjoyed using their stamps.  The theme for this month is:
Birthday
You can create anything you like as long as it fits the challenge theme.  

I used a really great stamp called Cat In A Box which can be found here.



The image was stamped twice, once onto white card and once onto some coloured card.  I cut the squares out of the coloured card and decoupaged them onto the white card to create a checker board effect.  I matted this onto some black card and doodled around the edges.  The background paper was in my scraps box.  I added some black pearls to the corners, a ribbon bow and a ball of wool peel off to finish the card.

With the leftover coloured squares I made a little mini card.


Here are both cards together.


Thanks for popping by and hope you will pop over to Little Claires and have a go in their challenge.  There are some lovely inspiration projects from the design team to feast your eyes upon too.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Happy Birthday Son

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  My sister, brother in law and nephews were down visiting this weekend.  Had a lovely time catching up but ate and drank far too much.  My new job is going well.  I am starting to feel more comfortable with the work and getting used to full time working again.   Still got to get myself organised on the crafting front though.  Don't seem to have had a lot of time the last couple of weeks to get in my crafty room very much.

Today I thought I would share a card that I was asked to make a few weeks ago.


The Happy Birthday is a stamp from Papermania.  I coloured it using promarkers and then added some stickles to the polka dots.  I also added some stickles around the square image for added sparkle.  The backing paper is from a K & Company paper pad that I have had for a couple of years.  I used a signature die for the star burst and used the stars that came out of the die cut as embellishments.  A sentiment finished the card.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all your comments.

Anything Goes at Imagination Crafts

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  Today is my first day at my new job.  A bit nervous but I know it will be fine and looking forward to meeting everyone and getting started.  Will let you know later on in the week how things are going.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme is:
Anything Goes
You are free to enter any project you like but if you do use Imagination Crafts goodies on your project you could win a £40 voucher to spend at Imagination Crafts.

Here is my inspiration project:


I used one of the MDF Frames and Charms kits to make a little picture for the wall.  I began by coating the frame with some purple acrylic paint.  I then used the crackle glaze and a final layer of cream acrylic paint.  This left a nice crackle effect as the base.  Soft purple sparkle medium was then used with the leaf flourish stencil.  I also coated the MDF butterfly with the soft purple sparkle medium.  While this was drying I used a sentiment from the Friendship stamp set and some die cuts to create the centre panel.  Some flowers and pearls from my stash completed the picture.

New Challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Well it sure has been an interesting week for me.  As some of you know I left my job after 31 years in June. I decided that I would take a little break and then look for another job.  Well. a couple of weeks ago I saw a job advertised that sounded interesting.  I applied not really thinking anything would come of it.  I went for an interview last week which was very nerve wracking after 31 years of not having to do one.  Anyway, I got offered the job today.  Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather.  The first job I applied for and I got it.  I will be working as a customer service advisor for a local publishing company.  Totally different to my last job but I am looking forward to the challenge.  I start next week so going to enjoy my last few days as a lady of leisure lol.

Anyway, let's move onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Children and/or Christmas

We have three great sponsors for this challenge:
Sparkle and Sprinkle - a prize of 3 digi sets from SNS Exclusive Stamps
Crafty Sentiments - a prize of 3 digi images
Dis Digi Stamps - a prize of $12 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a fun image and sentiment from Sparkle and Sprinkle.


I used the pre coloured version of the image but you do get the uncoloured version too. The sentiment also came as part of the set.  I added some faux stitching to the image panel and matted onto silver mirror card.  The papers were some freebies from a magazine together with the flower.  I belived they may be Craftwork Cards but don't quote me on that.  I added some card candi and gems to finish the card.

Anyone for Rugby

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.  We has a successful shopping trip yesterday to find my daughter's wedding dress for next June.  We knew she had found the one when she came out of the changing room about to burst into tears.  She looked gorgeous and I was so happy for her.  Now to start sorting out ideas for her wedding invitations.

I thought I would share a card today that I made for my nephew to give his brother for his birthday.


Jack likes rugby and plays for a local team on a Sunday so this image was just perfect.  It is a stamp from Papermania.  I stamped it onto white card using distress ink as I wanted to image to appear a bit vintage.  Used some more distress ink around the edges and then matted onto some cardstock.  The backing paper is from Paper Cellar that I have had for about two years.  The trophy was another stamp and I just added some colour with my promarkers.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the buttons were the finishing touch.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend especially is you are enjoying a bank holiday tomorrow.

Photo Inspiration at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and having a good week so far.  It was a good day yesterday as our daughter came home after working for four months in Majorca.  She has had a super time but is now getting ready to start her midwife training in September.  It is great to have her back home and I can now stop worrying so much about her lol.

Today I am here to share a little inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.


Our challenge for this month is to create something using the photograph below as your inspiration.


Our sponsor for this challenge is Ooh La La Creations and I used images from their CD Carnival of Colour for my card.

I matted the three panels onto dark green card and also the backing paper.  I added some dark green ribbon, gems and a sentiment which finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love for you to enter the challenge.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full challenge details.
