Allsorts - warm sunshiny colours

Don't know about where you live, but here autumn has surely arrived with lots of rain and really cold weather, especially in the mornings...
But the theme at Allsorts did its best to warm me up, it's to use Warm Sunshiny Colours.
A pretty Magnolia image and papers in pink, orange and yellow.

Allsorts - use a mask or a stencil

I'm in charge of the challenge at Allsorts this week and I want you to use a mask or a stencil when you create your project. I know there are loads of pretty, pretty paper out there but sometimes it's fun to create your own by using a mask or a stencil and some sort of paint. I hope you feel the same way and will be able to join us this week. The DT created wonderful projects for this challenge, but then again they usually do :). My contribution is a card with an old Hanglar image. I think the old Hanglar stamps are absolutely adorable, it's so sad they are so hard to come by these days cause there are some that I don't have :(.

 To make sure there are no doubts about how I used the stencil I've added a photo of the backing paper I created :). Ordinary white paper that I distressed softly with DI weathered wood and spun sugar, then I put on the swirl stencil and spunged with DI frayed burlap. I finished it off with a stamp from Stempelglede.

Allsorts - sentimental

Oh dear, I'm so late with this post! I think it's the confusion and half panic over having to start work on Monday that cause it.
Today it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and the theme is All Sentimental where we want to see a meaningful sentiment as focal point on your project.
Once again I got use of my beloved stamp set from Winnie and Walter and heat embossed the sentiment, clean and simple :).

Allsorts - favourite things and GDT for PB@Allsorts

This week at Allsorts the challenge is Favourite things - well, not much of a challenge but a wonderful theme :)
Since I love paper folding I took the opportunity to make a gift box and I used my favourite designer paper - Maja Design. The box template is called Push over and is from My time made easy. The top flower looks really messy - again the crappy camera man needs to be fired - but it's white acrylic paint and glitter :).

And it's my turn to be guest designer for Penny Black and More. The theme there is Anything goes. I made a wedding card using papers from Maja Design.

Allsorts - Time for tea

This week at Allsorts we think it is Time for Tea. I made a gift box, filled with green ginger tea and two tea infusers. The box was a summer present for our chorus director - hence the tag :).

Allsorts - Fairies

This week at Allsorts the theme is Fairies and since we are sponsored by Nicecrane Designs, that has the most amazing digital images, I used some from the Fairies and Angels collection when I made this gift bag. Not overly decorated but I think the images don't need that :).

Other challenges:
That craft place - anything goes
Crafty ribbons challenge - anything goes with ribbons
creative inspirations - anything goes
