The Flower Challenge #15 reminder

Hi there friends, I am back with more 'reminder' projects for 'The Flower Challenge'. Our challenge is
'Anything but a Card' this month. Here's what I came up with, see our blog for ideas what to make if you are stuck. Do check out what my talented teamies have come up with also ;)
I decided to make a wine tag, a carton to put some chocs in, a few napkin holders and an easel type calendar/post it note holder.

Anything but a Card, Wine tag, Carton, Napkin holders, Calendar post it note holder
Pink bokeh type digital paper from Etsy (old one from stash)
White Linen card (printed on) (carton template)
Napkin holders template (from my Craft Artist programme)
Flowers 'Classic Poinsettia' die Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson
Wine tag template ( from my Craft Artist programme)
Neat & Tangled sentiment die
TH Distress inks (for flowers & sentiment background)
Clear gems from stash

 I printed the digi bokeh paper onto my white linen card. Then I used my templates to cut the wine
tag, the carton and the napkin holders. I made my carton and finished the napkin holders.

 I then cut my flowers and painted them using my Distress inks. I attached all the flowers and then added clear gems to the centres of the flowers. I added my sentiment to the wine tag and the mini pegs to my carton.

Pink card from stash
Calendar (printed after googling for one)
Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Layered Poinsettia' dies
TH Distress inks
Mini pink Bull clip
Silver pen from stash
Twinklets Diamond dust
Clear gems
Post it notes

I made an easel card using white card and layered some pink card slightly smaller on top. Then I added my printed calendar onto a couple of pieces of white and pink card as a backing. A simple bull clip keeps it all together.

 I made all my flowers and leaves and coloured them all and stuck them to my centre panel. A few clear gems were attached to the centres too. I added a sprinkling of Diamond dust to my flowers for some sparkle. I made  and added a piece of card to hold my pen in place. I added some post it notes to the bottom of the easel card.

Kraft box with flowers

Hi there friends, I hope you are almost ready for Christmas ! Only 2 weeks away now, wow how did that happen. I have another box and some flowers I made recently to show you today. I think I am obsessed with making them now.

Two more in the pipe line yet  too! I made it for 'The Flower Challenge' again, lots of amazing examples there from our talented DT too... check it out. The theme is 'Anything but a Card' this month, has to have flowers on as usual too.

I am back with more DT examples on the 15th  but may just fit in another quick project if I can fit it in before then. Meanwhile enjoy your week ;)

Foamiran, Penny Black, Spellbinders

White Linen card  
Kraft card
Spellbinders Venise Lace die

I first made a box ,the finished size was 4"x7"x2.This time I made the lid using my Kraft card. Then I made my flowers & leaves using the foamiran and coloured them using my oil pastels. I cut my two shaped dies and added them to my card lid. I then added flowers and leaves and the silver mesh bow.

Here is the cue card below to add if you want to join in the challenge.

Candles and moon cards

Hi there, hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far? We are due to have snow tomorrow so we are postponing our trip to see our grandchildren tomorrow boo hoo.

Are you almost ready for Christmas yet?...I think I made and posted, presents bought except for one, still to wrap them as yet though. Doesn't Christmas creep on you quicker each year?

Anyway I am here to show you my latest cards for this week's 'Less is More' challenge. It's the dreaded 'one layer' card this time and 'candles or something depicting light'.

I went with digi cards this time, still a bit of messing around and finding the right wording etc. but I got there in the end. Come and have a quick peek, apologies for lack of light again in my photographs!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.....hope you don't get the snow too!
ps. I am trying a new system, you should be able to click on the first one of each new card to see it larger from now on. Hope that helps see my cards a little clearer ;)
