52 Cards Challenge Announcement

Hello Friends!

Since starting the 52 cards challenge I have made some lovely new friends, seen some beautiful cards, boosted my own creativity and hopefully helped a couple of you increase yours.

It is with a heavy heart that I have decided I can no longer continue with the challenges. I could post the prompts every week, but I like to participate too and don't feel I can carry on without being fully 'invested'

Unfortunately other things in my life have taken over and I just don't have the time to continue. If you would like to take over please let me know and I can email you all the prompts so you can carry on.

I will still be posting here on my blog and look forward to creating more projects in the future.

Thank you for your continued reading and participation :)

52 Cards Challenge Week 19

Hello. I hope this Monday finds you well? Here are the prompts for this week's challenge
Green, Embossing, Get Well

Here is my take on it
I covered the base in paper by October Afternoon, inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress ink and sewed it onto the card base. I stamped the sentiment on the journalling card and glued it down, I then cut a circular shape using decorative scissors from Bo Bunny Paper and sewed this to the card base. I didn't have any matching embellishments so I created one using my scalloped and circle nesties. At this point I realised I hadn't used embossing! so I embossed the layers of the flower :)

Until next week x

Supplies used: Paper; Bo Bunny, October Afternoon. MME journalling card

Some more challenge cards

I had so much fun with the card I made for the challenge this week that I instituted a new rule, if I cut into a sheet of 12x12 I have to use the whole sheet up, so I did!

This one uses and old Stickeroos sticker I had, a piece of a doily from Basic Grey and some yummy lace and Maya Road pleated ribbon.
More of the same but this time I added a cute cabochon earring that I had from a set from Primark.

I purchased this photo frame the other day from The Range and thought it needed a little something extra
I added some handmade flowers, gems and some leaf ribbon. I lightly rubbed over the wood with some Gelatos to add some subtle colour, I just adore the way the 'shingles' came out. The insert is removeable so you can add your own photo (the glass is also kept within the frame) I love it!

52 Cards Challenge Week 18

Happy monday to you and I hope you have been enjoying the extra days off work we've had recently :)

Here are the prompts for this week's challenge:

Yellow, Plastic and Gingham.

I did consider using yellow as my accent colour but after finding the perfect paper for it decided to theme it around the colour;
I used Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Fabrics paper as the base and reversed it for the die cut label, Melissa Frances tiny tag and envelope, paper roses and a little acrylic flower as the 'plastic' element. This card turned out just how I wanted it to and I don't want to give it away :)

Supplies used: Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Fabrics paper, Melissa Frances tiny tag and envelope, Recollections paper rose, American Crafts gingham ribbon, seam binding ribbon, lace, gingham card and gems.

I hope you have fun with this week's challenge :) Don't forget to leave a link to your's in the comments!
