Crafty Ann's Challenge #26


Gosh!! It was lovely to see soooo many wonderful entries for the last challenge and now it is time for

and this fortnight the theme is

Ribbon, Gems and embellishments made of 
paper or card

For my card I chose to use Ann's papers from the Mottled Stone collection - well distressed - and my paper embellishment is the Short Petal flower. The ribbon is vintage seam binding and the tassley trim, bought from a craft fair is actually cushion trimming - but I like it, lol, and it matched the colour of the BP. Finished off with lots of bling.

I printed the flower on to paper stamped with words and then spritzed it with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist.
The centre is Ice Crystal glitter jewels.

I would like to enter this in

Daisy, daisy....

Since returning from holiday I am finding it a struggle to get back to card making and as my blog has been idle for 3 weeks I thought I'd better post something.
I have made this quick card using a download from CUP. Easy peasy, no skill required - just print cut and assemble.

The good thing with this is one is the only careful cutting needed was the bow and that was not all that difficult lol.

Thank you for stopping by

Crafty Ann's Challenge #25


Time again for a new challenge at Crafty Ann's and this fortnight you are invited to.....

....use a digi stamp and your favourite colouring medium
 Project to include at least one digi stamp and please tell us what colouring medium you've used.

When you read this I will be away on holiday and although I don't want to say it, Autumn is here and to be in keeping with the season I have used Ann's  sweet little squirrel digi stamp which I coloured with copics.

The backing papers are from the Mottled Stone & Woodgrain effect collections, all from Ann's Digi Shop. I needed an embellishment to finish it off and didn't think a flower, which I would normally use, was right for this card, so......I isolated and enlarged one of the leaves and an acorn to make the bunch at the top.


 This is the squirrel who visits our garden - when I snapped this pic he must have been sitting on his tail, lol


Do pop over to Ann's Challenge Blog  to see the excellent and varied work from the DT and come and join us this fortnight
