DCD - Pink, red and heart

This is a sad day :(

Not only is it Monday, it's the last challenge for Die Cut Dreams. I've been on the design team since October 2009 so of course it is sad to put the challenge blog to rest but life has a tendency to go on :).
And I got a new DT spot with Totally Tilda so the sum of my pains is constant, hehe.


Well, let's go out with a bang, shall we? Make sure you enter this last challenge and make it the best ever! The theme is Pink, Red and Heart.

I made a tag from a chipboard heart, a Magnolia image and lots and lots of roses. To make it differ from the blue heart I posted a few days ago I added the paper lace. Very girly :)

Allsorts - hearts

This time at Allsorts I'm hosting the challenge and I want you to use a heart on your project. And mind you - hearts on the backing paper doesn't count! It has to be a heart with a purpose =).

I used a chipboard heart that I covered with DP from Tim Holtz, faux stitches and distressed edges. The image is an old Magnolia favourite =).

Other challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday challenge - ribbon

Simon says - Anything goes

Crazy 4 Challenges - lots of layers and embellishments

Crafty Catz weekly challenge - things with wings

SFTW - embossing

It's time for another fortnight with Stampin for the Weekend. This time the theme is embossing. That was an easy one since I'm still childishly fond of my embossing folder from Craft Concept =). Image is Molly October from our sponsor Stamp Fairy.

Allsorts - needles and pins

This week at Allsorts the theme is Needles and Pins. And since my baby has left the nest (I feel so abandoned, sob) I made a door hanger for their apartment. Image is Bildmålarna, DP is Tim Holtz and the pin is home made.

DCD - sympathy

Time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams and the theme is Sympathy.

I used a Tilda image and coloured it sparsely so that the whole card would be white and cream.

Allsorts - celebration of nations

This week at Allsorts the theme is Celebration of Nations. It can be flag colours or a tribute to your favourite country =). I chose an image by Thomas Kinkade, a truly talented artist that makes the most fantastic paintings, sometimes featuring the American flag, very suitable for this challenge =). This image is from a desk calendar which means I have 364 more images to choose from =). No, on second thought, I used an image for a birthday card for my dad last summer so there's only 363 left...

SFTW - Out with the Old


This first challenge for Stampin for the Weekend this year is Out with the old.
Use what was in your stash last year, so technically you can use something you got as a Christmas gift but we'd really like to see you use some of that stuff that's been hanging around for awhile.

I decided on an old Magnolia image and some backing paper from Tim Holtz shabby vintage stack. It resulted in a door sign for my sister.

Allsorts - Paper piecing

First challenge for 2012 at Allsorts is paper piecing. I used some dp I got from a dear friend for Christmas, the paper is used both as background paper and for the dress and head piece on the image. The apron is mounted with some glue dots to give it dimension.

The stitched edge is made with a sew easy tool, another Christmas present from a scrapping friend.

Baby card for new challenge

There's a new challenge called Lili's Little Fairies and their first challenge is new beginnings. I just had to participate =)

I chose to use a baby stamp I bought before Christmas together with the embossing folder that arrived in the mail today =). I've seen it and drooled over it since I saw it on Debby's blog and now I finally have one of my own, yey!

Other challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - what's new (my embossing folder is)

Simon says - New something

Papertake Weekly - anything goes with option of a new theme
