Button Art

New challenge

The Unstampabelles challenge is ready for you to try.  
#83: September - Button Art
Twist - use Washi Tape

I've chosen to make a card.   I had a lot of fun making it.

The washi tape is black with leaves. Quite stylish.

I've used a stencil to outline an M.  I have then filled it in with red, black and white buttons to match the washi.  I have filled the spaces left with white and red/white seed beads.

Quite pleased with the end result. What do you think?

Happy Hour by the Sea - a layout

Get a load of this crazy building. It is the Gaudi Tile Mosaic Fruit Spire, Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

No automatic alt text available.

This is your inspiration for the September challenge at Archiscraps. Your challenge is to also use fruit in your project somehow.

Here is what I came up with.

 Image may contain: 2 people, including Dale Tiernan, people smiling

I have also chosen to use the colours in the photo but you need not do the same.

Happy creating. I look forward to seeing what you put up.

Card with music notes

Here is a card I made for our singing coach.

I'm entering it in a new challenge (for me) at Allsorts, where the theme is music.

Male cards using Kaisercraft embossing folder

Hello friends,

Today I have two cards to share with you.

They are my Design Team inspiration for the August Unstampabelles' challenge, which is:

#82: August - Emboss, emboss, emboss.......
Twist - make this for a male

I like making male cards and I like to keep them simple.

I used a Kaisercraft diamond pattern embossing folder to satisfy the criteria.  The soft palette suits a male card.

I've made two cards this month, both using the same embossed paper.  The embellishments are from Creative Memories.

Thanks for looking. I hope you are inspired to enter.

Yummy breakfasts

It's a wintery, rainy day here in Perth today.

I decided that I would produce a scrapbook layout.

I printed a couple of photos and chose a challenge.

Donna's challenge for August at Mystical scrapbooks required:
You must include:
1 type of bling
2 die cuts
3 pieces of patterned paper only.. you can have multiples of the same...but only 3 "patterns"

I've used mostly Webster's Pages products.  Do you spot the cute little teapot charm? It's so adorable.

New challenge for August

I think this would have to be my favourite challenge for Archiscraps this year.  I love the colours of this month's mood board.  You must use only the colours shown apart from white, black or kraft.

The building in the picture is in Dubai.

Here is my layout.  I wanted to also feature a water element.

Check out the other DT inspiration at the site and then go off and make something to enter.

Have fun.

Green, kraft and yellow birthday card

I made this little card today for a challenge at Soul Scrappers.  You had to add a bird. I added a little green die cut bird. As it was green that decided my colour combo of yellow, green and kraft.
