Crafty Ann's Challenge # 46 - Summertime and the Living is Easy

Used one of Ann's Mottled Stone papers here. I just love the colours of this one and found some scrapbook card to pick up the lilac. The Wording, the sun and the mat were designed and cut with Craft Robo. The image is Ann's digi "h on acoustic" which I sized to fit in the sun and coloured with Promarkers. The flower is made from the backing paper die cut and scrunched.

Rainbow Lady's Challenge # 163 - Hand Made Flowers

This week's challenge is sponsored by the lovely Caroline and I have used one of her flowers and one of her stamps. The stamp is Ferns and was stamped and embossed in silver on a strip which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. This strip with the lovely mauve pink flowers was matted onto a matching mirri card and then mounted on an A5 card which was also stamped with the fern.

Dragon's Dream TIO # 89 - Pressing Matters

This embossing folder made me think of the Egyptian Lotus flower so I decided to have a play with an Egyptian theme. I coloured the embossed tag with the blue from Color Box Chalk Blossom Pastels and used this to over stamp with a lotus symbol. The border was stamped with Archival black then chalked over with the pale blue from the set. I did the same with the goddess stamp. All the stamps are from an Egyptian themed set by Habico.

Dragon's Dream TIO # 88 - Look to the Skies

I think the current weather is responsible for this week's tag. The stamps I used are A Cloudy Day by A stamp in The hand Co., Crafty Individuals and the sentiment is from TH. I used DI Stormy Sky to stamp and to distress the manilla tag. The girls were stamped in Dried marigold and the sentiment in Versafine.
Thank you for stopping by to have a look, your comments are greatly appreciated.

New Zealand Hybrid Page

I made the part of the page with the photos on in Craft Artist and printed it as an 8 by 8 page. I then scrapped it as normal onto a 12 by 12 page, using other papers, stamps and letters as usual. It is a square just the photo is wonky!!! I love the flexibility with photo sizes that the software gives you. No more printing 4 by 6 photos for me.

Crafty Ann's Challenge # 45 - Dry Embossing and Debossing

Recently bought TH body form Die so used it on a sheet of Ann's Funky paper to which I had added some of her white daisies, in MCS. I embossed the cut out and the buttons using a swirl folder. The backing paper is from TH pad and I debossed it using another TH folder Texture Fades. Love the colour of this funky paper, it shows up so well on craft paper.
I hope you will take a look at the super cards from the other DT members over at Ann's challenge blog and join in with us this week.

Dragon's Dream TIO # 87 - Project Tim Holtz

Been inspired by the trees this week. I put a manilla tag through TH pine tress embossing folder and then scrunched it up and sanded it. I distressed it with Bundled sage, pine needles and aged mahogany. I cut two trees from TH die one a page from a book and one a piece of peeled paper. I distressed the book tree and layered them. The stamps are both TH as are the words and paper clip.

Dragon's Dream TIO # 86 - Age of Chivalry

My dream for this challenge is the lovely lady holding the favour of her knight while he does battle in the jousting. The knights are from Dover "Heraldic Designs" and after resizing and printing them I masked them and stamped and embossed the background with silver pearl. I am not sure of the makers of the stamp as I bought it used and it had obviously been well loved. The lady is from Bravura Stamps. I coloured her with DI Worn Lipstick and added some touches of gold. Both the torn topper and the tag I distressed with Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo. Really enjoyed this challenge so thank you for coming by to look, your comments are greatly appreciated.

Rainbow Lady's Challenge # 160 - In The Country

The challenge this week is sponsored once again by the very generous Joanna Sheen and I have used papers and toppers from her CD "Country Diary of An Edwardian Lady". I printed a frame then placed a topper behind it and decoupaged on top. Hope you will go and have a look at the other DT cards this week and that we will inspire you to have a go.

CD Sunday - Christmas is Calling

Went for an easel card with lots of glitter this week. I used Joanna Sheen's CD Times Gone By. To the topper I added snow glitter and red stickles to the berries, not sure it shows up very well! The base is the matching backing paper with a red Santa tile as the stopper.
