Red, white and blue

Hello everyone,
We are starting a new month and so a new challenge at Let's Craft and Create.
As usual it is an Anything goes, but the option is to use red, white and blue, which is quite appropriate at this time of the year.
I hope everyone in the USA had a great 4th July and enjoyed the time with family and friends.

The DT all made such great cards, so please do hop over and see what there is for inspiration. There is also a lovely Gift Certificate up for grabs...so come along and join us. You have until 31 July to enter so lots of time.

I went quite simple with my card and it could be used for many events.






The patterned papers are all from my stash

I used the following dies to cut the various shapes.

The wavy shape is a Nellie Snellen edging die,

The small stars hanging from it are a Marianne Design Craftable die. It is a banner with the stars hanging and I just cut them off and attached to the shaped diecut.

The large star is also a Nellie Snellen die and I used a Just Right stamp on it. Added the peelof stars and a bow to finish




Will be entering the following challenges:



Crafty Creations #369...Anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner  #169...Red, white blue
Simon Says Wednesday challenge...  Red, white blue
Cards in Envy...Twinkle little stars
Crafty Cardmakers  #215...Use at least 2 dies or punches

Thank you for visiting and will be back soon
Love Ursula

Punch it at Let's Craft and Create

Good morning on a chilly but sunny winter morning.

This week over at Let's Craft and Create there is a new challenge with an option to use your favourite punch. Please do visit to see the lovely cards made by the DT and by entering there is even a prize for a lucky entrant

For my card I used a pink cardstock and here I used my most favourite corner punch. I think it will soon protest, but as it is still going I love using it.

I also used a heart punch for the larger hearts in my pocket...which is actually a stamp ..(unnamed) onto patterned paper, and  cut  out. I added a heart brad onto the pocket. The other hearts are from a selection of dies.

Onto the hearts I added some peel-off words.

The sentiment is a Incredible Obsession die, with some pearls to finish off.

Will be entering some challenges later in the day.







Thank you for visiting and hope to see you soon.

Take care.
Love Ursula

The Outlawz new colour challenge

Good morning everyone,
We have had some lovely winter days this week, not the cold wind chilling ones of the previous week. Makes one want to get out and enjoy the lovely sunny days, with some crochet or knitting to keep you company, but we can't always do what we would like.

I am a day late with my DT card for this week's colour challenge not entirely due to the lovely weather.

 We have a beautiful inspirational photo from Sharon, so there is so much to use for your project this week. The DT have made some fabulous cards to inspire everyone.

Our sponsor this month is Fabrika Fantasy 

Image may contain: 1 person     

I loved the colours from the photo and was inspired to try and make a background for my card.

I used distress inks on watercolour paper and then used an Anne's Paper Art die from Nellie Snellen to cut out the watercoloured shape and a slightly larger yellow one.

Matted these onto a dark blue cardstock.

I stamped a flower image onto the coloured diecut and embossed it with black embossing powder

Finished it off with some pearls



Entering a few challenges:
A bit more time to craft  #68...Anything goes
A perfect time to craft #5 ...Anything goes
The Artistic Stamper. ...Backgrounds
Classic Design Team #25 ...Anything goes
