Creative Moments DT Post – Lots of layers

Welcome to the next challenge at Creative Moments.

This fortnight, we are making projects with lots of layers.  Or generous sponsor, Eureka, give me this charming digi to work with – and it has been so cold that I don’t even feel that I’m making this card at the wrong time of year!  It is very detailed and therefore didn’t need much colouring and was mounted into a Christmas card using the sketch below.  The die-cuts used are cut from Mirri card using a Memory Box die.  Both the blue and cream backing card are from Kanban.


Today’s challenges will be: – sketch – die cuts/punches

More details of the challenge here – hope you get the chance to play along.

You’re a teenager

Here’s my Saturday night’s colouring effort.  I used a very limited palette based upon the picture to inspire below (although I am too late to enter the challenge).

The gorgeous digi is from Cuddlebug Cuties and was a freebie from the the very generous and talented Anna Stillwell.  I printed out the digi after typing in the sentiment.  The papers and embellishements come from a C & C vintage-style papercraft kit  and darkened the overall effect.



These are the challenges I’ll be entering: – pastel colours & for kids – my kinda gal! – lace – ribbons and lace – add ribbon, lace or twine – girls, girls, girls

Grand-daughter – from The Hobby House

Well this is one of he nicest kits that I’ve bought from C & C in a long time.  The quality is fantastic and there is a sensibe amount of product – by that I mean that it’s not got so much in it that I’ll be bored before I’ve used it all!  Everything you see came from the kit apart from the ‘granddaughter’ label.  The corners of the square mat are shaped using a Fiskars paper punch.


I shall be entering the following challenges today: – cards – paper punches (corners) – anything goes – Spots and dots – anything goes – Anything goes

Hope you love this as much as I do.

Firstly I need to apologise as I this lovely digi was a freebie to enter a challenge some weeks ago…and then I ran out of time and didn’t get to enter it.  So at last I finished it and matted it up using card mats from Michael Powell.
