My first Craft Room challenge DT card 'Anything goes'

Good morning, I am so excited to be bringing you my first DT card for Craft Room Challenge.  Don't forget you can use any products you like as long as you follow the theme for the 2 weeks of the challenge.  The Craft room online shop stocks all of your products and I believe the stamp set I have used for this challenge is available in the store(unless she has sold out since I last looked! )

This is a tri fold card, I used 2 square cards and fixed them together to make this.

I have used Umount's stamp set 'If the shoe fits' for most of this card, the flowers are yet again my unknown stamp!

Lots of pictures with this one so you can see it all!!

The shoe has been stamped and coloured with pro markers, then I have used glossy accents on the top.
I have layered it onto 2 Nellie Snellen die cut shapes which have been liquid pearled.  The sentiment is from the set.  I have used a flourish die on plain red card, inked with stazon( black) then versa mark(clear) To create the backing paper.  lace and ribbon have been used to create a boarder down one side and a fiskars boarder stamp has been used on the other. 

IA swirls embossing folder hasbeen used to make the backing for this side, some organza red and gold ribbon for the boarder and my unknown flower and pucnhed leaves as decoration.

This side I have left mostly plain for the writing on, i have just layered white paper onto black and red and wrapped cross stitch threa around the corners.

Another swirls backing with the shoes and hat box stamped onto red card with black stazon.  I have wrapped red cross stitch thread and tied a bow for a boarder on this side.

The backing card has been made by stamping the smaller shoes in a pattern with black stazon.  The sentiment is from the set and has been stamped onto a nellie snellen die cut, which has been inked with red and black.

Ans finally, another shoe treated the same way as the first, I have used the same fiskars boarder punch down the side and black gems in the scallops.  The swirl embossing this time is on black card.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges pearls lace and elegance Die cut/home made backingpaper/ sparkle and bling

You're a Classic

Hello on this very wet and dull Monday morning.  Can't you tell it's another Bank Holiday?!  I hope it doesn't spoil it for all of you.

Today's card has been made useing some digi's from a new designer 'squidgi digi' by Bethany Coe.  She has some fantastic images so pop on over and take a look.

I have just used plainn brown card for the backing on this, rounded the corners, distressed with ink and added a brad to each corner.  I have wrapped brown cross stitch thread around the backing and then distressed and attatched some brown corrugated card which has been wripped into a rough shape.

The image has been cut out with the largest nesties scalloped lace square die which has been ink distressed with brown and black ink.  It has then been coloured with pro markers.  I have printed a second image and cut it out , coloured it and decoupaged it on top.

The sentiment is another of squidgi's digi's!  that comes with a set, I have again distressed it and attathced with foam pads.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Kenny K White on white

Good morning,  I see Blogger is having yet more problems this morning as I couldn't sign in in the normal way!  What is going on?   Any way the weather is looking very good out there today so I will have to make the most of it if blogger is going to misbehave all day!

Today's  card was an absolute pleasure to make,  I really like the white on white at the moment so don't be suprised if you get another tomorrow! 

I have trimmed the edge of the top layer of this card then used a fiskars boarder punch down the edge.  I have used 2 different embossing folders(my favourite things to use at the moment as they are quick and easy!) One for the outside(music) and one for the inside(from the cuttlebug princess collection)

I have used riddon down the edge and added clear gems to the scallops.

The image is called Madskills from kenny k digi downloads and I have coloured her with promarkers, cut her out and attatched her with foam oads.  I have also added some tiny mini gems for the belt section.

The sentiment is 2 stamps 'Keep rockin' is from the greeting farm and Birthday girl is from a lili of the valley set

I have used a nesties scalloped lace square for th insert overlaying the embossing and the Birthday wishes is a stamp,but I have no idea where I got it from.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Let it hang out over the edge

Thanks for stopping by.
