Anything But Square at Allsorts

 Hi Crafters,

I often grab a square card when I start creating it seems the most versatile shape to create with but this week at Allsorts we want to see your makes that are NOT square. As always we have the Anything Goes option too.

So I have dusted off my Silhouette Cameo and made this male themed card. I really should use my Cameo more, it does some fabulous things but finding the time to play with it is always difficult lately.

We have Prizes from Stampendous this time...

Please check out the challenge blog HERE for all the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, then come and join in with us. Please make sure to enter with a new project and link your blog post to the challenge blog to be eligible to win one of the fabulous prizes.

See you soon,

 Hi Crafters,

I said that I'd be back with another stenciled background and here it is....

This time I have created a Fish Bone background using my Distress Oxide Inks and a stencil for my cute cat silhouettes. These are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die set called Mischievous 665996.
I have used various dies in my stash to create the Postage Stamp Frame and Happy Birthday elements, then added some enamel dots too.

We would love to see what backgrounds you create for your projects this week at Allsorts.
We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs once again.

Take a look at the rest of the design teams projects here and come join in the fun with us, you have until 12 pm next Friday 19th January to get your entries in.

See you soon,

Stencils at Passion For Markers Challenge #721

 Hi Crafters,

Thank you for joining me today for our new challenge at Passion For Markers. Alongside using your Markers this week we would love to see you using a stencil/s of some kind on your projects.

Here is my card

I have used a couple of stamps from an All & Create set called #286 Best Mate which I have coloured using my Promarkers and Copics. The sentiment comes from this stamp set too. I have used a few stencils on my card - Polkadoodles Clouds and Grass stencil and a non-branded one for the Bones ( I have a Fish Bone one for a cat themed card which I am itching to use too). The stencils were inked with Distress Oxide inks. My two little embellishment Bones are from a die set called Dog House by Amy Designs.

Please come and join in with this fun challenge, you have a week to enter a new project using your Stencils and Markers. The Design Team have been creating some fabulous projects to inspire you, why not take a look at them here.

That's all from me today,
Have a fun day.
