Autumn Leaves

 Hi all

 Today is a new Cardz 4 Galz challenge

the theme is

'fall/autumn - not halloween'

here is my take


 I used yellow card and dabbed autumnal colours onto it

then I took some white and die cut the leaves and again dabbed with autumnal colours

The sentiment and dragonfly were stamped in brown rather than black

so have a look at Cardz 4 Galz and make your own card to enter

 see you there

Christmas Snow

 Hello again

 I have made a Christmas Card today


 I blended the two distress inks to make an ombre background and stenciled  white circles to look like falling snow

I added nuvo drops and glitter glue for sparkles

This was mounted onto a piece of kraft and glued to a card blank

The sentiment was stamped using the same blue as the background

Hello Autumn

 Good morning crafters

 today is a new Sparkles challenge

the theme this month is

 'Hello Autumn'

 here is my take


 I have used yellow card and dabbed autumnal colours around where the leaf will be

Then die cut the leaf in the center

I covered the rest of the paper with stamped autumnal images

Then die cut a ribbon shape, stamped 'celebrate' onto it and re stuck it back with glue blocks

Retro

 the theme today is

 'Go retro'

 I have used a 'retro' colour pallet and die cut 'retro' shapes using regular nesting dies and arranged them on a black background

Joy Tunnel Card

 Hi Crafters

 I have been making tunnel cards


 This was designed on my cricut machine I cut the 'joy' over the circle and had it write the sentiment and draw the stars

Behind the joy I added blue sparkle paper  and I used washi tape along the edge

Here is the outside


I die cut the tag, stamped the sentiment, added washi tape and glued on a bow that I dipped the ends into gold glitter

I am linking this card with

Love Hearts

 Good morning

 it's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz

todays theme is

'one layer card'

here is my take

 This was made by using a stencil and pink and purple distress inks which I used an ombre colouring

The sentiment is stamped using the same two inks and I decided to make my life more difficult and ombring  while colouring it as well.  I am actually glad thet I did because it came out nicely

So have a look at Cardz 4 Galz and make your own one layer card to enter

see you there
