#206 Floral Delight and DT Call

Thank you to those of you who entered our DT call last time around. I haven't had a chance yet to properly check out your blogs, but should be in touch soon, and in the meantime if anyone else is interested in joining our lovely team could you add DT after your name when you enter the challenge below!

We are a nice relaxed bunch. There is no pressure to create for every challenge, which is once every fortnight, although ideally you would; and we don’t have sponsors so you won’t have to work with a particular image or item.

Mary is hosting today's challenge, Floral Delight. Unless a flower is the focal point of your design, then more than one flower please!!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Floral Delight theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT
 
Mary

I used dies from Tattered Lace and coloured the die cuts using Promarkers.

Josephine

I've made a Tonic Kaleidoscope box (without the lid) and filled it with hand-made flowers.

Angela

Pages from an old book, lots of Kim Dellow stamps and a craft card blank. Add these together and finish with a white pen and a few gems. The birthday sentiment is by Woodware. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Judy

I love Honeysuckle flowers and decided to create my first spring project using this flower. They remind me of my childhood. This digital stamp is by Arty Pants and I coloured the image with water colours. The sentiment and butterfly are rubber stamps from my collection by Inkadinkadoo.

Glenda

I used floral background paper and three flowers from a garage sale grab bag. I added some blue centers to the flowers and adhered them over a fancy vine die cut. I added four punched out smaller flowers and made them part of the background. The word sentiment was from a Tim Holtz die.

Jackie

My card was made using tattered lace dies for the topper bases, and a stamp by Chloe, which was embossed and coloured with distress inks.

Margaret

On my card, I have used layers of floral paper as well as two different types of floral laces. There are four paper flowers as the focal point and I have added a Chloe Stem die cut to the cluster as well. Have a wonderful, crafty day!!

Maike

I have used "Doodle Buds" by WPlus9 on my card. To give it more of a light, springy feeling I decided to go with rainbow colours for the flowers and kept the rest of the card relatively clean. Have a great week, everyone and happy crafting ;o)

Hello, I made a birthday card for woman with lots of flowers.
 
Marlene

I have used a John Lockwood Stamp Set, I have heat embossed the Centre of the Stamp with white embossing powder and decoupaged the Snowdrops added a few small Snowflakes and pearls

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

#205 Love & Romance and DT call

Before we get to today’s challenge, I am really sad to report that June has left us due to personal reasons. I want to thank her for all her hard work and wish her luck in the future. I am hopeful when things are a little more sorted she will be back. In the meantime if anyone is interested in joining our lovely team could you add DT after your name when you enter the challenge below!

We are a nice relaxed bunch. There is no pressure to create for every challenge, which is once every fortnight, although ideally you would; and we don’t have sponsors so you won’t have to work with a particular image or item.

Now down to business.

Marlene is hosting today's Valentine themed challenge, Love & Romance

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Love & Romance theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Marlene

I have used a Marianne Design Heart Die and a X-Cut Heart Die. Embossing Folder and lots of Pearls

Josephine

A three-dimensional card with a die cut heart shape, a watercolour wash using glitter pens and some die cut letters and very old paper from my collection to make a traditional Valentine card.

Angela

This is a tag from my year journal which I made using stencils, stamps and Angelina fibres then completed it with ribbon, a metal heart and pin. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Judy

This is the card I made for my husband for Valentines Day. I used one of my gelli plate prints for the background which I stamped with a Italian Love Poem. "Loved Tag" is a old rubber stamp from my collection which I coloured with Copics.

Margaret

I created the background of my card with texture paste through a stencil and then added the colour with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals. The cluster consists of a piece of gauze, some die cuts and a few flowers. I also added a little stamping on the side.
Cheers! Margaret xx

Glenda

A 'heart'felt card expressing Valentine love with a stamped image, Prismacolor Markers. and lots of die cut and punched hearts!

Mary

I used the romance set of Popcorn the bear stamps coloured using Promarkers and Tattered Lace mini ruffle dies.

Jackie

My card was a plain and simple valentine, as it was for a man! I used some backing paper from a cd, a heart die and a stamp for the word I and YOU. The scroll sentiment was made using craft artist.

Kimx

This card was actually made using one of Jane Gills fabulous Christmas stamps from a couple of years ago. I do like a stamp that has multiple uses.

Lin
My valentine offering is a combination of different companies dies. Mainly Tonic, but some Crafters Companion and one Simon Says Stamp, and construction acetate. Please see my blog for details

Maike

I have used last month's free (with playing along her challenge) digi stamp to create this card. I thought the red frame would go well with all those hearts and also added some dry embossed hearts as well to add a little more interest to the card base ;o)

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
