This week we have a really easy recipe which is simply
As long as your design is Clean and Simple, has some white space (or its equivalent) and polka dots in evidence somewhere, it will be perfect for this challenge.
For my card I covered my base with some cream textured paper (I'm going to be in sooo much trouble with Chrissie and Mandi!) with a polka dot ribbon wrapped around. Made 3 flowers from Mariannes English Rose die set. Cut out 2 leaves from same set and a Tim Holtz swirl, added some cinnamon stickles for a bit of glam!
This week the challenge is to create an autumnal card using the colours
ORANGE AND BLACK
There is also an optional extra to make your creation with a HALLOWEEN theme.
and at PaperPlay.....
Our challenge this week gives a nod in the direction of the upcoming festivities - "Use Black in your card/project".
Now you don't have to do something Hallowe'eny for this, some of our
DT have, some haven't - just let's see the colour black somewhere on
For my card I stamped a tree from Creative Expressions - Church and embossed in gold onto the black base card. I masked a moon and stippled orange and green shades from Big and Juicy Spice, then stamped tree and horse and carriage from Chocolate Baroque Howling Moon set. Mounted onto orange Core'dinations.
you have to do this week is to use Halloween inspired colours, so
think reds and blacks, purples and oranges, you know the sort of thing
lol!! You can do a Halloween card if you want but you don't have to, as long as the colour theme is there."
For my card I used Core'dinations for the base card and used stamps from the Howling Moon set from Chocolate Baroque. I then stamped onto silk card from the same stamp set and brayered with Big and Juicy Hydrangea.
The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is Good to Eat.
Well, we all have too much food at Christmas don't we and it usually ends up on the bird table!
For my card I have used the new Chocolate Baroque stamp set Fat Robin and the backing paper is from Seasons Greetings also from CB. Dies are X-Cut. Edges are distressed with DI Peeled Paint.
