PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #381: ANYTHING GOES


Hi Everybody!

This week at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges, we have two wonderful sponsors giving aways prizes:

are giving away 1 uncoloured digi, and

are giving away a $10 store voucher

This week I'd like to show you an adorable Sasayaki Glitter image, called Ice Cream Time!  

I love making children's cards, because it always looks so great to use the age number as the base card, which is what I did here.  I cut the number on my Cricut.  The zig zag paper is from the DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack.  My character has been coloured with markers and then fussy cut.  The only other thing I added to the card was a shaker sticker tag which I've had in my stash for years.

Both our sponsors this week have gorgeous images that you simply have to check out, so pop along to their stores to check them out.  You can click on their logos above.  To see what the rest of the Penny's team have created for your inspiration this week, and to enter your creation, just pop back to the blog.

Happy Crafting!

DIGI CHOOSDAY WEEK 21



Hi Everybody!


This week the team at Digi Choosday decided to give you a bit of Vintage inspiration.  I instantly thought of fairytales, and then of Cinders, in her tatty dress, which has a vintage feel in itself.  I drew in a bit of background for her - the wall, kitchen table and window.  I wanted to keep my papers as neutral and soft as possible, so I chose soft browns from the Winston range, and distressed all the edges.  

I've added loads of flowers, a strip of cheesecloth, a wooden corner swirl and a vintage clock, as well as a vintage milk can, on the table.

Now, be sure to pop back to the challenge blog, to pick up today's DISCOUNT CODE!  While you're there, have a look at what the rest of the team have created for your inspiration this week.  Then take your special code over to the shop to fulfil all your crafty needs!  Don't forget to enter your creation in our challenge for the week!  These links will take you straight there⬇︎










I wish you a wonderful week of crating!

DINO PARTY!


We have a dinosaur lover in our family, and he's celebrating his 3rd birthday.  I decided to go with pre-coloured images from the Polkadoodles Sticks and Bones collection, to whip this one out quickly.  I cut all the images out on my Cricut, and used the number 3 to make the base card.  And that's all there was to it!

PET SYMPATHY


There is little more heart-wrenching than losing a furry loved one.  We lost 2 in the space of a few months, a few years ago, and I wasn't sure I was going to ever fully recover from the loss.  I don't think I have.

This week I was asked to make a sympathy card for someone going through this pain right now.  I feel that sympathy cards serve one purpose only - as the means of carrying our message of love, support and sorrow, and therefore, they shouldn't draw any attention to themselves.  While we may feel joy at the reaction of someone opening a beautiful hand made birthday card, there is no joy surrounding a loss.  So... when these awful cards need to be sent out, I like to keep them as plain and simple as possible.  

I used two embossing folders to create the base, a Spellbinders die for the sentiment tag, and a Poppy Crafts die for the heart.  I typed up the sentiment and used a KaiserCraft paw print stamp.  I've added a bunch of teeny roses.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations May Challenge: Clean & Simple

Thanks for popping by for a look.
