How does your garden grow TIOT challenge.
A crafting blog for the two of us
This was my D T card for the TIOT challenge last week, that went missing, I had put it safe but where I had no idea, it was actually where I thought it was but I could not see it.
This challenge made me think a little and I was not sure where to go with it. I recently got some mini pads from craftwork cards and the papers in this pad made me think of those colours from my childhood on early morning walks when we were on holiday in the south. They are soft hues the sun throws out as it rises in the morning.
Thanks to the lovely Janet and a recent stamping club, I produced this frame which I think is Feminine and Fancy, I have sent this to my mum for her birthday, Happy Birthday mum.
The choices for this are endless, time maybe to dig out those mail related stamps, or just recycle an envelope like me, for inspiration check out our blog here .
The challenge on TIOT this week is more than one fold (challenge found here ) so I was able to use my little boxes card.
The challenge today, is to make a project showing handwriting wow was that a task ( I cannot believe I used to do wedding invitations etc and received training as a Calligrapher, sadly since my illness developed I cannot do it anymore.)
That said I enjoyed giving it a try, but the writing is nothing to write home about hee hee. I made two, cards in a box, have found a lovely tutorial showing you how to get two cards out of one A4 sheet tutorial here. I used the stamp set from the creative stamping magazine called Timeless Opulence, I love it, my daughter went yuck until she saw them stamped now she likes them. I also used a old piece of Stampin up paper both sides and a new Stampin up stamp.Sorry the rest is picture heavy.
The challenge this week is "Travel", which gives you a wide interpretation, do join us in the challenge and check the other design team members at our blog here
Although I am writing this in 2013 it will be posted in 2014 so Happy New Year to everyone.
This weeks challenge is colour explosion, so I decided to do a sunburst card. There are lots of tutorials out there, do have go after I had sorted the papers the rest was fairly straight forward.
