#203 Bling’s The Thing

Lin is hosting our first challenge of 2018, Bling's The Thing. We would like to see lots of bling, ie, glitter, gems, or anything else that's sparkly.

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 Bling's The Thing theme.

Before we get down to the team's creations, we have relaxed our rules a little and no longer have a limit of 15 entries into our challenge, but we still require a permanent link to our challenge post in your post.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Lin

My 'bling' is layers of glitter card and mirri card. More details on my blog

Mary

I used a stamp from the Louise set of Scruffy Little Cats colouring it using Spectrum Noir pens, make up and Liquid Pearls. I added gems to each flower centre and then matted and layered the image onto glitter card, mirri and white card.

Angela

Hi all. Made this with Graphic 45 papers which I embellished with Stickles Glitter Glue and bright red and gold brads all layered onto a black card blank.

Glenda

The papers are all sparkly and I added some rhinestones and a silver shiny tag holder to complete the bling effect. The flower already had pearls as it center.

Judy

For this week's card I used an old rubber stamp from my collection called Rose Coloured Fairy by Stamps Happen that I coloured with Copic markers and pencils. To make my card sparkle I added glitter washi tape, Wink of Stella, glitter paper and gems.

June

I've used one of the new embossing folders with the combined die and highlighted the swirls with bling. I also adhered the cut out heart to the inside of the card and edged it with larger pieces of bling. Happy crafting!



Maike

On my card I have used an image by Sugar Pea Designs which I love and which is absolutely perfect for this challenge. It even had a sentiment with the word "gem" in it ;o) Hope you like all the glitter and sparkle - the cute gopher certainly seems content with it. Happy crafting, Maike

Hello, today I want to share with you my first card for first communion which I made this year. I used pastel colors combo and added some gems and flowers.

Josephine

I've used Twinkling H2Os for background and image colouring on this as well as some bronze embossing powder, sticky gems and mirror card.

Margaret

Happy New Year everyone!!! For my card, I used some layered papers and added a piece of lace with a row of tiny pearls alongside. I have included a few gem flourishes in the flower cluster and added a large glass gem to the chippie.

Kimx

I know that Christmas is a dim and distant memory, but it is also the perfect occasion for a bit of bling, so here is the card that I made for my Granddaughter.

There is lots of glitter and sparkle, and a bit of Glossy Accents as well.

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

Jackie

My card was made using some images from a MCS kit, and utilised some left over shiny art deco paper I had in my stash.  There are gems highlighting the corners and it hasn't come out very well in the photo, but the dresses are dotted with glitter!

Marlene
I have used a vintage photo which comes as a set called Memories of Philomena from Crafts and Me Shop. I used lots of embellishments and distressed the edges.

Embossing folder/Crafter's Companion, Die cuts, bling/Creative Expressions
Merry Christmas everyone!

Josephine

The background for this was done with acrylic paint on my Gelli Plate, then edged with Imagination Crafts bronze Alchemy wax. The baubles were die cut using, I think, dies from Joanna Sheen, and the sentiment using a die from Tonic.

Judy

I made this Christmas card for a friends little new born daughter's first Christmas. The image is by Mo's Digital pencil. The image is coloured with Copics, diamond glaze, and a glitter pen. I added stars, trees and a sentiment to finish the card.

Angela

Background paper was decorated with Jofy Christmas stamps and Stickles glitter glue added. The sentiment and main images are Elena Zinski stamps from Paper Artsy. Red gems complete the card. Happy crafty Christmas, Angela xXx

Glenda

I used a Penny Black stamp, various dies and punches, a doily and a Stampin Up embossing folder to make this fun Christmas card. Hope you have a Merry Christmas season!

Mary

I used a traditional decoupage sheet from Craft Creations Ltd called Snowman with bear and matted it onto brown mirri and green card, adding a ribbon to link the two colours together.

Margaret


My card was made with papers from Craft Smiths. The border die is the Floral Vine Deep Edge Punch by Martha Stewart and the chippies are by Scrapmatts. Under the flower cluster is a small doily cut with a Dienamics Die and the pine branch die is by Impression Obsession.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

Jackie

My card was made using the waste from some card I used to cut out a large snowflake, and some ribbon from my stash. The background was made using distress inks and the stamped images were (I believe) Card-io. The sentiment was a stamp from my stash.

Kimx

My card was one of several I made using Magnolia background paper and poinsettias stamped and embossed onto vellum.

Agnieszka chanya13
Hello, today I created a christmas scene with lots of trees and nativity scene. I also added a handmade flower.

#201 Animal Magic

Kim is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Animal Magic.

If you are in the UK are you singing the theme song and picturing Johnny Morris??? LOL 


We would love to see your creations based on an animal theme. Please make sure that your project has an animal large enough for us to see, we are excluding insects in this one, so no bugs, butterflies, bees etc. will count as animals. Your project may still have them, but not as the animal, so you will need to add something other than an insect to meet the challenge theme.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it's matches our Animal theme.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Kim

I chose to stamp a dazzle (yes, that is what you call a group of zebras according to Google!!) of zebras for my Animal themed card.

Josephine

A variety of inks; Distress, Memento and Versafine, masks and stamps from various manufacturers and a wintry landscape is the result.

Judy

I used an old rubber stamp from my collection of a Moose by a company called Earth Art. I used Copics, Pitt pens and a gelli pen to colour my image then added a few gems, glitter and sentiment to complete the card.

Mary


I have used a Bugaboo digi called winter penguin trio and coloured it using Promarkers, adding Liquid Pearls to the falling snow.

Glenda

I created this card to show the magic sight of a mother and her young on a peaceful lake. The swan and the lower foliage were ink stamped and the sky and water is hand sponged..

Angela

Oxide inks and Tim Holtz stamps and dies created the kitties. Stickles glue and coloured gems completed the card. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Marlene

I have used a Stampendous Stamp and an X-Cut Die for the Trees  lots of White Glitter and a LOTV Sentiment

Maike

I have used these cute mice from a rather new Gerda Steiner Designs set. I love their content little faces. For the background scene I created some hills with Distress Inks and added a wooden house free hand using Copics.

Margaret

My card was made with layers of paper, lace, tulle and string. The little reindeer is a chippie from 2Crafty Chipboard and to this I have added a bauble sentiment from Scrapmatts and a cluster which includes a handmade poinsettia, a tiny pine cone and some die cut branches.

Have a lovely day!! xx
