WWC #326 – Helen’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Helen is our host with an all about occasions challenge this fortnight!

For today’s challenge I’ve made a Christmas card; a rather unsual one. I followed another tutorial by Sam Calcott making an accordion style card. I used Stampin Up cardstock, DSP and stamps to decorate my card.

The front of my card
The back of my card
The accordian mechanism
The inside of my card, This will look great as a decoration on a mantle of the recipient.

Come join in the fun and make a card for an occasion of your choosing. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Tuesday, 18th October at 9:00 Melbourne Time or Monday 17th October 5pm US Mountain Time to link up your project.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Guest Designer – Less is More #453 – Colour Challenge

Well today I get to play along with Less is More as a Guest Designer thanks to this card!

It’s a colour challenge this fortnight and we challenge you to use yellow and purple on your card.

To me, this colour combo screams Halloween, so I masked off a panel on my card and did some sponging with my Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet. I then added a creepy looking rat and sentiment from Tim Holtz.

Come join in the fun and make a card with yellow and purple. Link your creation up here; you have until Friday 15th October.

I’m also entering this card over at:

Craft Roulette #81

Well I watched another Craft Roulette and couldn’t wait to play along.

What a fun video it was and how different were each of the cards created by Crafty Al, Bitty Penny and Helen.

The wheel spun the following criteria:

  • Project – cut out card – I used a star cut out on the front
  • Colours – Organge + 2 – I used orange, red and yellow for my die cut stars
  • Element – Stars – I used die cut stars
  • Random – wide margins – I had lots of wide white space on the front of my card.

For my card I kept it super CAS. I used some nested star dies and cut the largest from the front panel and then 3 more from red, orange and yellow card stock. I then added a sentiment behind the front panel and largest star so it moved when you opened the card.

Check out the Craft Roulette youtube channel for some fabulous inspiration. Thanks for stopping by for a look and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
