Bump In The Night

Posted by Jeannette on 19 October 2009

I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.  When I first thought about doing a haloween card I thought oh n0!, but once I got started and knew what I wanted it just fell into place.  Another very C&S  card but I think it looks really good, especially IRL.  I was going to use Crystal Effects on the chipboard letters but when you colour them, they dry with this wonderful suede effect and feel to them, I just love it.  I can’t stop touching them.

Colour Combo: Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie

Cupcake Craft Challenge #58

Posted by Jeannette on 21 September 2009

Another day, another week!  This weeks CC Challenge is distressing.  Another quick card but this is a great way to get rid of bits, and if they’re a bit crumply so what, distress the edges and then they’re meant to look crumply.  I love this Simply Scrappin’ Kit.  I’m going to be using it for my “Journal Your Christmas” this year.  Everything is from the kit with the exception of the snow flakes, they are stamped onto Very Vanilla CS which is the Base of the card.  The edges were done using the fab Cutter kit distressing tool.  If you don’t have one you could use a ruler to tear the paper instead of cutting it or you could use a File to rough up the edges.

Colour Combo:

Colour Combo: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip

Check out the Design Teams cards for some other great idea’s on Distressing, and don’t forget to enter the challenge while your there.

Supplies Used: (All Stampin Up! Unless Otherwise Stated)
1. Card, Paper, Embellishments – Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin’ Kit
2. Stamps – Snow Flurries
5. Tools – Cutter Kit
6. Mediums – Stampin’ Pad

Cupcake Craft Challenge – Shaped Card

Posted by Jeannette on 24 August 2009

The Blog Hop Winners have been chosen, for a complete list go check  out the CCC Blog.  The winner of my Blog Candy is…. Lisa V (Lisa’s Paperfun) Congratulations Lisa.

This weeks challenge is a shaped card.  This card was a complete accident.  About a week ago I had this idea for using my background stamp, so I had a go straight onto my Card and wasn’t impressed with how it turned out.  I just put the card one side and forget about it.  When it came to creating this weeks cahllenge I was rooting through my scraps looking for something to use as a Template and found my experiment.  I was only intending to cut the heart shape and use that as a template, but ten minutes later I ended up with this.  And I love it!  The lines and dots are just drawn in using a Stampin’ Marker.

Colour Combo: Sahara Sand, Taken with Teal, and Whisper White

Sandy chose this weeks challenge and she wants to see Beach Themes on your cards and projects.  Well I made my card for this week and when I went to upload it for Donna, I had made the wrong one, so it was a mad rush to get this one done in time.  It’s just as well as I’m not a Beachy kind of person and would probably still be pondering over what to do.  But on the other hand, I’m technically two weeks ahead, Yeah!

51 - Beach

I used the masking technique for this card, and I didn’t add a sentiment as I haven’t quite decided what the occassion is yet.  Go have a look at the rest of the Design Team cards they’ve come up with some fab cards yet again.

Cupcake Craft Challenge – Christmas

Posted by Jeannette on 20 July 2009

The Cupcake Craft Challenge this week is Christmas, and it was set by Pops.  I’m finding it really hard to craft at the moment, it literally took me 2 day’s to do this card!  I sat down on Saturday to do it and nothing, absolutely nothing!  I sat down on Sunday morning and still nothing, Sunday afternoon finally something started coming together.  And now if you look at it you would think it only took five minutes.  I find that the less I craft the harder it is when I do, and I’m sure I’m not the only one like that.

I don’t know if anyone has noticed but I love Sketches, the hardest thing about them is deciding what papers and images to use.  I’m not too happy with the paper I used today,  simply for the fact that I had exactly what I wanted in my mind but didn’t have it at hand.  Never mind, I still enjoyed doing this challenge and I hope you join us again this week over at Cupcake Craft Challenges.  Have a look at the rest of the DT’s cards, they’ve all used images from this weeks sponsor Sandra Dry Digi Designs.

Cupcake Craft Challenge #44 – Fathers Day

Posted by Jeannette on 15 June 2009

It was my turn to set the challenge this week, and with it being Fathers Day soon I decided that was the perfect choice. However it had to be more than a card. You can interpret that anyway you want to, if it’s not Fathers Day in your neck of the woods then something for a man (any man) will do.


I used this gorgeous paper from a Craftworks Cards Goody bag and I have no idea what it’s called. If you know please let me know because I would love to get some more. Head on over to Cupcakes Craft Challenge and check out the DT’s cards.

Supplies Used:
1. Card – Dark Blue and Medium Blue from Stash, SU! Brocade Blue CS

Cupcake Craft Challenge #43 – Colour Challenge

Posted by Jeannette on 8 June 2009

This week’s challenge is a colour challenge given to us by Ida. Now I haven’t done many Colour Challenges before so please bear this in mind when you read the rest of this post.

Colour Challenge

What a challenge it was! I really struggled with this one. I made 3 cards on Saturday and just didn’t like them at all, I eventually gave up and decided I would start over again on Sunday Morning. So I got up and did this card in about 20 minutes. I’m thinking that maybe I should have just done something else completely on Saturday because I don’t think my Mojo was around at all. And to top it off, I’ve just realised that the challenge was also a card for kids. Oh well, kids have friends too! don’t they? We’ll just imagine that this is for a very mature kid.

Do have a look at the rest of the Design Team’s cards, at least everyone else read the instructions better than I did.

Supplies Used:
1. Card – SU! Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink, and Yoyo Yellow CS
2. Papers – Over te Rainbow by Kay Miller
3. Stamps – SU! Occasional Greetings
4. Embellishments – On Board Blossoms and Basics chipboard Photo Corners
5. Tools – Paper Piercing Tool and Template from the SU! Crafter’s Tool Kit
6. Mediums – SU! Stampin’ Write Markers

Cupcake Craft Challenge #42 – Fairies

Posted by Jeannette on 1 June 2009

It was Evelina’s turn to set the challenge this week and and she has chosen the theme “Fairies”. All you have to do is have a Fairy or a few present on your card or project. Can’t wait to see all the wonderful creations. I’ve had these stamp sets for a little while now and haven’t really had the time to play with them properly so I thought this was a pefect opportunity.
 

I tried a little stitching on my card, very basic but it was fun. I of course had to change my whole card layout because I decided to do it at the last minute and had already matted everything up. Never the less it was a lesson learnt and next time I’ll do the stitching first. Do have a look at the rest of the Design Team’s cards and I’m sure everyone has something with fairies so there’s no excuse for not joining us this week.


Supplies Used:
1. Card – SU! Rose Red CS and White from Stash
2. Papers – SU! Petals & Paisley DSP
3. Stamps – SU! Circle of Friendship and Fairy Doodle Clear Stamps
4. Buttons & Brads – SU! SoftSubtles Buttons and SU! Rich Regals Brads
5. Ribbon – SU! Tempting Turquois Grosgrain Ribbon
6. Tools – SU! Scallop circle, 1 3/8″ Circle, 3/4″ Circle, and 1/2″ Circle Punches

Cupcake Craft Challenge – Sketch

Posted by Jeannette on 23 February 2009

This is my second and final Guest Design Team member challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges and it’s a sketch. I always enjoy doing sketches and this one was no exception.

Here’s my take on the sketch, I go a little carried away once I had got started. When I think of Cupcakes I think of lovely soft colours like the ones I’ve used.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor The Cutting Cafe who is offering the winner 3 sets of their choice! How good is that. The Design Team were given the All About Cupcakes set and I’m sure everyone else had as much fun using it as I did.

 


Supplies Used:
1. Papers – From Scrap Box
2. Card – SU! Textured Card in Barely Banana, Bashful Blue and Pretty In Pink
3. Images – All About Cupcakes Set
4. Ribbon – SU! Pretty In Pink
5. Buttons – SU! Soft Subtles
6. Glitter – Pee Wee Glitter
