Less is More #409 – Guest Designer

Hello there, today I am a guest designer over on the Less is More challenge blog as I was the monthly winner for September #405 We Pick, You Pick. This month the #409 Pick a Triangle challenge wants you to pick one of the triangles from either sketch and make a card.

I chose the second sketch and the bottom middle triangle for my card.

I used one of my favourite Christmas tree stamps sets from Altenew called ‘Sketched evergreen’ that I inked up in Catherine Pooler Design inks on a square white card base.

Come join in the fun and check out the projects that the other artists at Less is More have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Monday, 7th December at 10:00 Melbourne Time or Sunday 6th December 11pm GMT to link up your project.

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin’ Christmas challenge blog with an optional twist to add trees.

Always Fun Challenges #136 – Pumpkin Challenge

Hello there, today we have a new challenge over at Always Fun Challenges and the theme is pumpkins.

I created an ink smooshed watercolour background with my Kaleidacolor ink pad ‘Desert Heat’ and printed a digital scary pumpkin face onto it. I decided to keep it simple and not add a sentiment as I wanted the face to be the focal point.

Come join in the fun and make a card with watercolours.

Anything but a card

Today I was inspired to play along with the current Just Us Girls challenge #513 which is all about anything but a card!

I made a twisted box using Stampin Up Magnolia Lane DSP, some ribbon and some die cuts for the magnolia flower on top.

This box can hold 2 Ferraro Roche chocolates – one in the bottom and one in the top before you twist it!

I think I’ll be making a few more of these for my colleagues at work but with a Christmas theme to them.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
