Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT

A big thanks to Leslie Turner from Mix It Up Challenge Blog for the invitation to be on her Design Team starting July 1. This Blog has a focus on mixed media projects which has an amazing scope. It's just the direction I wanted to take and hopefully many other crafters will too!! Each month there is a technique twist which is optional but adds a bit of spice to the competition. Take a look at the current challenge here.

Lace ribbon and twine competition LCC

Lets Craft and Create challenge this month is to use lace , ribbon and or twine. A good open theme anyone can meet! I'm having a fling with black and white with one other colour at the moment and this card picked up the yellow accents well. I'm finding high contrast colour themes are great to photograph.

Bird Kit

Australian Simply Cards put out a great kit for issue 117. I used the papers dies and stamps to make this card with little else required. It must have been designed with great forethought as the detailing and matching were spot on. I'm sure this set will be used time and time again.

Through the window LCC

A very intriguing theme this month at Let's Craft and Create Challenge. I had a window die with opening panes and a lovely winter scene so the card came together quite quickly. If you are inclined please join the competition for this creative idea.

New Zealand beach series

Mangawhai Beach Museum is selling a fair few of my cards now in the summer tourist season. I haven't taken photos of all of them but here is a sample two recent cards. I design the text on my computer and use the background patterns in MS Word to give them some dimension and colour.

Keeping to the theme is a bit of a challenge as they are not girly or feminine which is my usual style!!

Easter - Lets Craft and Create

No Easter bunnies or eggs but this card has the Northern Hemisphere theme of spring and flowers. The stamp of a barrow of flowers and the backing card stock set the design for this card. An unusual colour combination but I did want to use the foiled cardstock so found patterned paper and colours to match. Join us at Lets Craft and Create
