Allsorts - Use those dies

Hi all,
at Allsorts this week we want you to make use of all the dies you've gathered =).

And as my DT work I present the gift I made for one of the quartets in our chorus. Lots of dies used here; Spellbinders frame, Martha Stewart heart and Tim Holtz rosette. The rest are punches :)


Sponsoring us this week is Flonzcraft with their huge selection of awesome stamps.

SFTW - Spring colours

It's my turn to host the challenge at Stampin for the Weekend this fortnight, so I'll try to keep up my end of the bargain :)
We are sponsored by Live and Love Crafts, a wonderful craft store, and the theme is Spring Colours.

I made a gift box in bright Easter-inspired colours, decorated with the image March Daffodil from Rick St Dennis, a gorgeous image with suiting spring flowers. But I might of course be biased cause I love all his ladies in hat-stamps!




Other challenges:
Scrap Creations - spring
Cute card Thursday - floral delight
All crafts - anything goes

Allsorts - all about the boys

It's All about the boys at Allsorts this week. We are sponsored by Craft fairy.
I decided to make a clean and easy male card to have up my sleeve for a rainy day - who knows when you might need it :)
I stamped the sentiment in white on the tag, and then filled in some more with a white pen, which is why it looks a bit smudged, can't be helped. But if it's handmade it is :)

Other challenges:
Crafty ribbons - anything goes
Crazy4challenges -anything goes
Crafts4eternity - anything goes

Allsorts - pretty in pink

We have an awesome challenge for you at Allsorts - it's pretty in pink :)
I made an envelope card and since we are sponsored by Passion for Stamps and Nicecrane I decided to use one of the images from the Angels and Fairies series from Nicecrane.

Allsorts - Sports

Morning,
At Allsorts the theme this coming week is Sports. Picking the lovely Lili of the Valley stamp with the fisher boy got me off easy =)

Background is an embossing folder distressed with Weathered Wood - and I lifted out on word as a sentiment and distressed it with Frayed Burlap.

Other challenge:
Moving along with the times - Moody blues

Allsorts and Penny Black and More

My elder daughter is flying to Miami today on a kick-off week with her work - fully paid with meals, excursions and a four star hotel and I'm not at all jealous... But she worked hard for it and she totally deserves it :)

Anyway, today I have two projects for you; my DT work for Allsorts and my guest DT work for Penny Black and More.
At Allsorts the theme is Spring is Coming and I made a gift tag using an image called August Poppy from Rick st Dennis. I just love all his "hat ladies"!


And then there's the project for Penny Black and More where the theme is So sweet. Could be candy or sweets but I chose an image so sweet you could almost eat it =)

Edit: wooops, just realized that the Penny Black and More challenge starts tomorrow... Oh well, you got a head start on creating something sweet then :)
