4th Design Team Card

Hi All

Here is my 4th design team card for Crafty Boots

 I decided to go with a Halloween theme it's not something I normally make cards for but really enjoyed doing this one.  It's my friends Birthday on Halloween so I will be sending this card to her.

All the papers and image are from Nitwit, I love all their stuff!

I added ribbon from my stash and my favorite cosmic pearl pva.

Please pop over to Crafty Boots Challenge blog to join us and check out all the fab work from the design team.

Thanks for looking

Black 'n' Cream

I really like all the black and cream cards that are around at the minute and thought I would try one myself.

I cut and folded a 6 inch cream card base then cut a black piece of card slightly smaller and matted some cream card onto it which I had embossed with the Delicate That Special Touch Mica Mask, I then wrapped ribbon around it a added a bow and hat pins.

I then cut my image using a Marianne creatable die in black card. I used lots of Spellbinder dies to make all the matts and layers to add dimension to my card and used a peel off greeting out of my stash.

I added flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Cosmic Shimmer black pearl pva to the corners.

I would like to enter this card into The ABC Anything Goes Challenge.

3rd Crafty Boots Challenge

For the 3rd challenge over at Crafty Boots it is a Zoo or Animal theme so I had an idea to make a door hanger.

I used a template that I found in my stash (I had forgotten that I had it!) drew round it on white card and cut it out I also cut out 4 strips of the same card and coloured them in using spiced marmalade distress ink.

I used a Kanban Woolly Bear topper and matted it on to white card cut out using a scalloped oval spellbinder die and went around the edge with the same distress ink.

Thanks for looking
