over at 


The theme this week is

Use Something From Your Craft Stash

how many of us have loads of crafty bits hiding in our rooms?.
So open then draws and look into boxes and I bet you will find
more than enough to stuff to enter our challenge and maybe
even surprise yourself at what you find.

The design team have busy bee's creating for your
inspiration, so go on over and have a looks at what
they have come up with.

My card has been made using the image Noah's Tire Swing
from Paper Creator and you can find it HERE.

DETAILS

1.I took a 7 x 7 white scalloped edge card and matted it brown card.

2. Next I took a piece of Hessian (from my stash) and laid it across
the card.

3. The image is pre-coloured and once I printed it off I cut down to
size and distressed around the edges before adhering to my card.

4. The three sentiments I have stamped (again something from my
stash) using the same T/H ink.

To complete the last items from my stash were  the three buttons.

Well that's it, a really quick card but a cute one don't you think?

a doily, then using foam tape layered up
each layer.  To the image card I attached
a piece of lace.

To complete the card I added a bow and heart gem
to the bow centre and pink gems at the edges.

Hope you will join us over at Dream Valley and

scene is encased in a frame.

Monochromatic

Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I cannot believe that yet another month has been and gone.
November is here, so if you have not yet started with the 
Christmas cards, I think you had better get going because
if November is like the rest of the year in a blink of an eye
it will be Christmas.

Thanks to everyone who joined our last challenge, there were
so many wonderful entries.  So as you can guess its time again
for another new challenge at PENNY'S PAPER CRAFTY

The theme this week is MONOCHROMATIC

We are sponsored this week by


Prize $15 Gift Certificate

and



Prize $10 Gift Certificate for their online store

Now monochromatic is not as dad as it sound, simply means
using the same colour but in different shades.  I have chosen
a very cute image from Little Blue Button entitled  Miss Lilly
With Umbrella  and you can purchase her HERE.  I have
chosen to use  varying shades of grey as my colour palette.

DETAILS

1. Started with a 7 x 7 what card and added a brick background
paper created  in MCS.

2. Next I die cut the puddles background and shaded with grey
(sorry shading is something I need to practise as somehow
I never seem to get the shades to flow into one another)
This was then adhered to the background and I have
added 3D clear gloss liquid embossing to the puddles
and raindrops.

3. The image was coloured with Copic and the fuzzy cut
then adhered  flat to the card.

4. Using grey card from my stash I cut out an aperture so as
to create a frame and this was then placed over the card
using foam tape to give height and the illusion of a picture
frame.

To complete I created some paper flowers out of grey paper,
made a bow and used gems in the corners that I coloured
with a grey marker.

I do hope you will join us, if you think you need some
inspiration,  then please  hop on over to the blog and
see what my fabulous team buddies have created.

Until Next Time

            paper. Next I die cut the borders, corners and poinsettia  using Sue
Wilson and SB dies. All were then glittered up.

frame across them. The image frame was then adhered using
foam pads. Just to give that added sparkle I used glitter on 
parts of the image.

To complete red pearl gems were added and the sentiment
Happy Christmas.
