Birthday for International Art and Soul

Two cards in a row this weekend.  These two weeks come round so quickly. It's time for another challenge at IAAS,  birthday this time, and this is my DT card.

If you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card please scroll down to previous post. 

My Card


This is a 6 inch square white base card and I have used an image from Craftsuprint, but didn't use the decoupage.  I did attach the sentiment with foam pads to give it a little dimension.

Why not pop over to the blog and see my teamie's cards?

Christmas Card Club - Layers

 Good morning and here is another card for the Christmas Card Club.  The theme this time is "Lots of Layers" and it was chosen by Lorrraine.

My Card

My card is almost, but not quite, an A5 card but I chopped a bit off the side for symmetry. As you can see there are certainly plenty of layers .

I used matte and mirror silver card stock, from Crafter's Companion, which makes it very difficult to photograph but at least it doesn't look black which sometimes happens.

Dies used: John Next Door - Frame from Calling Angels and snowflakes are Baroque Snowflakes.

Presscut- Notched Rectangles

Sue Wilson - Let it Snow die.

The weather has been quite autumnal for the last few days. I do hope you are all well and enjoying life.

Take care.

CAS for International Art and Soul

 Good morning.  The theme this week at IAAS is CAS. I have an extremely simple card to show for my DT card today.  I somehow mixed up my challenges and realised this morning that I had made my card to fit the next challenge.  Luckily the theme is CAS because  was able to make my card extremely quickly.

 My Card

The longest part of making this card was the time in locating the embossing folder I wanted to use. It is absolutely donkey's years since I used it.  It's an old Cuttlebug folder and the embossing is amazing.  It is so deep it is like the current 3D embossing folders that are popular now but in those days 3D folders hadn't even been thought of.  The stamp is from the Nitwit Collection "Bloom With Grace" from Crafter's Companion.

Why not pop over tot he blog and check out the cards from my team mates?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

12 MoC Link Up - Warm Winter Wear Challenge #80

 Good morning.  Here is my DT card for this month's challenge at  12 MoC LinkUp.

If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure that your card features WARM CLOTHING suitable for winter, either on its own, or being worn by a human or animal.
Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win TWO images from this month's sponsor, All Dressed Up Stamps. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack.  

I will forewarn you that this post is picture heavy.  It is a windmill style card  as you can see from the top view in picture #1

     My Card    

Why not pop over to the blog and see what the other Sleigh Belles  have made for this challenge and then come back on August 15th to get more inspiration from the Merry Maidens. Please remember we are a Christmas Card Challenge only so no tags, boxes etc.  

Take care and have a good day.

IAAS A Form Of Transport

 Good morning. I am here this morning with my DT card fopr IAAS where the theme is A Form Of Transport. I am still on the trail of using up old stash and this vintage car is from an LOTV Art Pad.  I did so love those pads!

Please scroll down to previous post if you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card.

My Card


I also used some ancient Card Candi which matched perfectly. I have a feeling the sentiment is from either Hunkydory or Craftwork Cards. It looks gold in the image but is actually silver. The cogs are from a Papermania die.

Take care and enjoy your day.
