Charisma Cardz - Anything but a card challenge

Afternoon Blogland,
I am here today to share with you a project I have made for the Charisma Cardz challenge that went live on Thursday 26th. This fortnight we want to see other types of crafts - so Anything but a card, as we want to see what else you lovely bloggers can do.
As usual there is some fab prizes up for grabs

Prize one

One lucky winner will receive 4 stamps or 1 stamp set.

Prize Two

Kenny K's is a fab online digi shop
 with fun upbeat digi's for all your crafting needs!

I have created a gift for my daughter's teacher for the end of term.

I cut a heart shape from some very thick corrigated card to make a heart shaped wreath.
I then set about creating a load of rosettes in all different sizes and patterned papers, but tried to keep them all to similiar colour tones.

I then went on to create a smaller heart wreath which I then printed out the sentiment for the centre. I have also decorated this with more rosettes to match the large heart. I also cut up strips of pink paper and covered the entire heart wreath so that it hid the corrigated card

Next I created a even smaller heart wreath covered this in the same way as above and added the teachers name via a printout. I found the small 'teaching is a work of heart' image sentiment on google and thought it was perfect to tie all my hearts together

Here is the finished project

I am really pleased with how this turned out and have made a seconded one for the teaching assisstant also. This was great fun to make and I think I may have to make some as gifts as I think the look fab and would make a lovely wall hanging in anyones home.

I am a day late with my post for the new challenge over at Seemacrafts as the challenge went live yesterday (1st June). This month the challenge is to make something CUTE. There is some fab makes from my fellow DT's so make sure you pop on over to the blog.
I have used one of Seema's digi's for my card which you can find as a freebie on here page HERE
I just love this image I think he maybe my FAV so far

I have coloured him in with my Sakura Aquarell water colours. The backing papers are all freebies from a mag I have had these in my stash for ages I cant even think who they are by.  The sentiment is by Circadesigns.
The flowers are La Pashe and you just print them and cut them out I forgot I even had these and I love how they look on this card. To top it off I added a double ribbon bow and some bling.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come and join in the challenge

Christmas Fun - CAS or Anything Goes

Good Morning, I am back again with a post for Christmas Fun this time. This month the theme is Clean And Simple OR Anything Goes.
Now I really struggle with CAS cards as I love to emblish or have lots patterned papers ribbon bows etc so I knew this would be a hard one for me to tackle. Now I have tried to keep it as CAS as I could and it nearly killed me lol
Here is my card

I have used Do Crafts Percy and Penelope decoupage collection ( I have had this for a number of years but I love these little guys). I have teamed this up with some papers from the same collection and also created a ribbon border with the papers. The sentiment is also from the collection.


Thank You for stopping by and I hope you will come and play along with us over at the challenge blog.

Just For Fun - Here Comes Summer challenge

Good Morning Bloggers,
I am here today to share with you my DT project for the Just For Fun challenge. The theme this month is 'Here Comes Summer'. It sounds like an easy subject but I was struggling a bit so started looking through my stamps and digi images etc and just couldnt decide on anything So I decided to make a wreath frame out of pinwheels/rosettes. I have been thinking about making one of these for a while now so thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

I have used bright sunny papers as this was the look I was going for and it also totally reminds me of summer days.  I have used papers from an A5 paper pack called Vintage Florals which was a freebie from a mag. 6x6 paper pack called Ice Cream Sundae another freebie and also some American crafts 12x12 My Girl papers. The button are from the docrafts spots and stripes collection.

I havent decided wether I am going to add a photo to it or just leave it as is hanging on my craftroon door.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your entries over on the challenge blog
