Christmas flower

Hi everyone,
I am back with my second card. It almost feels like Christmas is here as I have made 3 Christmas cards in the last 2 days, but lucky for me it is still almost 8 months away.

This time I have used one of the many 3D printed papers that I have been hoarding and also some of the patterned papers from my scraps box. Maybe by the time Christmas arrives I will have made a dent in those, as I am trying to use them up for my 12 months of Christmas link up cards.

 
I will enter the following challenges:
 Sister Act Card challenge #103...Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart #57...Anything goes
The Pink Elephant challenge #296...Anything goes
Christmas Card challenge #21...Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap #43...Anything goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #8...Anything goes
Hiding in my Craftroom #197...Any holiday
 
I will be back in the morning with another card. It is a DT, and again a Christmas one after that I will give Christmas a break for a few weeks.
 
Enjoy the rest of the week, and take care.
Love Ursula
 
 

Christmas baubles

Hello friends,
I am rushing to get some cards in before the deadline tonight. This is the first of 2 Christmas cards for the challenge at 12 Months of Christmas Linkup


I really don't want to miss out as Lisa gives us a lovely digi paper when you complete the challenge.

For this card I used an embossing folder with ornaments and just coloured them with Pan Pastels. Added some details with a metallic pen, glitter to the stars and christal glitter to the snowflakes.

The large bauble is cut with a Marianne die and attached it with a string..

I need to get the second card photographed and then I will be back.

 A quick easy card.

I will enter this into some challenges later:

Colour challenge with wings

Good morning friends on this last Tuesday of April.
We are in holiday mode here in South Africa, having had Freedom day yesterday and then on Friday another holiday, so many have taken off the days in between to have a mini holiday. The worst of these holidays is, one tends to forget what day it is.

It is definitely Tuesday and that means another colour challenge at The Outlawz.

Ina chose the beautiful photo for inspiration with the colours and the twist...something with wings.

Our sponsor for the last time this month is Enchanted Design Studio

The DT have made such gorgeous cards, you really need to pop over and see them. Hope you will come and join in this fun challenge.

I got the inspiration from hereFlowers, Ribbons and Pearls and this is my card with all the details below.

 
I started with purple card and then matted aqua card that I coloured with Distress inkpads. I then took watercolour paper and with the inkpads and water spritzed on it, used the 3 colours for the challenge.
 
The butterfly I stamped twice, on patterned paper, Embossed with gold. The aqua colour is from the paper and just added some purple to the butterfly, cut them out  and layered the one with 3D silicone The feelers I drew in with a metallic pen. Added glitter.
 
The sentiment was a free stamp in a magazine.
Finished off with pearls and a bow.

Blooming Blessings progressive challenge

Happy Monday friends,

Do you ever find that somehow you loose days or they just disappear. Well I was so sure I still had a day to enter this challenge, but when I checked there was like 3 hours to get my card in. Thankfully it was just about done, but I still had to photograph it and it was not yet light here....so a little bit of panic, but as soon as the sun came out (thankfully blue skies today and no clouds) I took a photo....not perfect light, but.......

This is the set of images for the April progressive challenge at Deedee's Digis






This is the card I made using the blooms image.


The card I made is a multifold card
Paper - I used mostly paper from Michel R Designs...perfect petals and butterflies & hummingbirds.

I printed the image twice and coloured it. Then I cut out the flowers from the second image and layered them with silicone on the first image. I attached this to a Marianne Design diecut. Used some Pontura pearl makers for dots in the centre of the flowers.

The sentiment I stamped on the inside front.

Finished it off with ribbon, pearls and a metal corner.
I need to get this in before the deadline.

Will be back later to enter challenges.

I cut an extra piece for the lid and raised it with foam dots and edged it with a peel-off strip.
 
The tags are also from the same range of paper, attached it to a tag with some raffia and a teacup charm.
 
 
  For the inside I also covered it with one of the Tea's up papers and made a small diecut envelope with a Marianne Design die. In this I put a teabag.

Play tic-tac-toe at The Outlawz

Happy Tuesday friends,
Well back from our little break in the country and my word, while we were gone winter seems to have crept in somewhere. Cool mornings and cloudy and cool days have been with us since our return. Not too worried though, we always have some lovely sunny days  in winter so I am sure it will all settle into place soon.

This week's Colour challenge at The Outlawz has us playing tic-tac-toe, so come and join in the fun. I think everyone knows what to do ...just choose your column, horizontal, vertical or diagonal and if there is a word in it then that is the twist to use.

We still have as our sponsor this week,  Enchanted Design Studio and some of the DT have used their images. So do pop in and see what they have done. We would love you to come and play along.




For my card I have used the image 'So in love - Hooties'



I have used the vertical column on the left with buttons as my twist.

Paper - Pink cardstock and matted a designer paper that is from my stash. I was so lucky that all the colours were in the paper.

Coloured the image with Distress inkpads and added a small heart gem. Cut it out with a Nellie Snellen MFD.

The sentiment is from a set of Marianne Design, and I just cut around the words.

Finished off with 3 buttons.

A sketch at Digistamps4Joy challenge #111

Good morning friends,
A happy Wednesday to everyone. I am away with hubby for a few days break in the lovely Mpumulanga area of our country, so hopefully Mr. Blogger  has posted this for me.

At Digistamps4Joy the current challenge #111 has a sketch to follow. My teamie Tonnie is hosting and has designed the sketch for us to use.

We would love you to come and play in this challenge and you don't have to use a DS4J image, but if you do...their is a chance in the main prize. You still have till 30 April to enter, so what are you waiting for....







I decided I needed a baby card to add to my stash, and had mainly blue papers, so this is how it ended up.

The paper with text is from my stash of off-cuts so not sure who it is by. I can say it is about 5 years old. The gingham is from Marianne design , Sweet baby, paper block

The image can be found HERE It was coloured with my usual Distress inkpads.

Anything but a card at The Outlawz.

Hello my friends and a happy Tuesday,
I am away for a week so hopefully if you are able to read this post all has gone according to plan.





I was the lucky one to choose the inspirational photo for this colour challenge at The Outlawz and the twist is 'anything but a card'. You need to use all the colours and make anything except a card...tags, boxes, notebooks, frames... in fact any paper project.


Our sponsor this month is Enchanted Design Studio and some of he DT have used her images, so we would love you to come and see what we have all made.







This is what I have made. I started with this paper notepad from our local stationary shop and transformed it into this.



All the paper was from my stash, and the beauty is you don't need large pieces, so using up all those small pieces is great.

I cut a piece of card - recycled. I keep all the pieces that come with embossing folders, dies etc. I then covered that front and back of this piece and also of the backing card of the pad. The blue strip at the top holds all the pieces together and then just decorate.

The fancy diecut is a Marianne Design die.
The image is called Enchanted Sparrows, coloured with Distress Inkpads.
The sentiment is a freebie from Hannelie cut with a Nellie Snellen label die.

These are such handy little gifts to make and don't require too much effort. I always like to have a few in stock, but have run out of my supply, so need to work at it again.

Entering this in the following challenges:
Scribble and Scrap #42...Anything goes
Craft my Life challenge...Anything goes, but No card
Crafty Cardmakers #136...Wings
Not just cards...Anything goes
Mema's Crafts challenge...Use a die or punch
Crafting from the Heart ...Anything goes
Stamp and Create...Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs...Anything goes
Deep Ocean challenge #101...Things with wings
Fan-Tastic Tuesday #81...Anything goes with pearls
Party Time Tuesdays #197...Anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door...Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday...3 of something...pearls

Well that's it from me for now. Hope to see you soon. Take care.
 
Love Ursula

Iris folding for a change

Good morning friends,
I hope all is well with you at the start of this lovely Easter weekend. It is just such perfect weather at the moment here in our part of South Africa. Late summer/early autumn with warm sunny days, early morning crisp air and gorgeous evenings, what more could we ask for.... I suppose a little shower of rain during the night would be most welcome.

I hadn't done any iris folding for a long time, and thought the way to get back into it was to do a swap. So I signed up for one and was a little worried as we have had some serious postal issues, but am happy to say I received my card from New Zealand and today I had a message to say my card arrived safely in The Netherlands....a big relief.

This was my card, and I must say I found it a little tricky, but I think only because I was a little out of it. I was quite happy with the result.

 
I will try and find some challenges to enter a little later.
613 Avenue Create #117...Anything goes
Come and Get It...One for the girls
Crafts Galore Encore #16...Make a card

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a truly Blessed Easter. Take it easy with the chocolates.
