Allsorts - Happy 7th birthday Allsorts

Imagine that, Allsorts has been around for 7 years! And how rewarding it has been to be a part of the Design Team since February 2010. My celebrational card is a clean and simple one, using stamps from Winnie and Walter with  just a diecut edge and a pretty bow as accentuation. 

We are celebrating with a fantastic prize by our sponsor:

The prize is a £50 store voucher to spend at their web site. What will your celebration project be like? Cause you are joining, aren't you? This is an opportunity you don't want to miss!

Allsorts - Magic in the air

this afternoon my chorus is competing in the Nordic Championships in barbershop, wish us luck :).
But first I want to announce our new challenge over at Allsorts where Brenda felt that There's magic in the Air so think fairies, toadstools, elves and all things mystical.

My project is a fairy door to put for instance in the garden. Made with pebbles and popsicle sticks coloured with grey acrylic paint. i glued the pebbles around the door using white glue with grey paint, sand and some silver sparkles in it. Keyhole and hinges made with black liquid pearl. The hook is a bent wire and the key a metal charm. It's fun to use other material than paper sometimes :).

Allsorts - cherry on top

Welcome to a new challenge at Allsorts. This week I'm hosting and I set the theme to Cherry on top. It doesn't necessarily have to be a cherry but I want your project to feature some kind of fruit or berries. I went for strawberries. First attempt to make a watercolour background, turned out rather nicely. Image is a Clear dollar stamp.

We are sponsored this week by the Digistamp Boutique and Sizzix so hop on over to Allsorts for your chance to win.

Allsorts - red/white/blue

Welcome to a new challenge at Allsorts. This week the theme is Red/White/Blue. Since I normally use very soft and smudged colours this primary colour combo scared me a bit. But I rolled up my sleaves and dug into it and I'm pretty pleased with the result. I might try these rather strong colours again.
