It's the first Sunday of the New Year so that means new challenges to tell you about at Stamping Sensations, where are theme selected by our very own Tracy is 'Friendship', at Penny Black and More we we are thinking ahead to Valentines and Spring weddings with the theme 'Love is in the Air' and at Craft a Scene we would like to see 'Snowy Cottages'.
At all three challenges we have some fabulous prizes on offer from a host of wonderful sponsors so please do pop over to the challenge blogs to check them out.
My card at the top is my DT piece for Stamping Sensations which I kept fairly simple as the Marianne die is so very pretty. The roses and leaves are also made Marianne dies. I would like to enter this card for:
The middle card is again fairly simple, I cut three heart shapes into a piece of copy paper and use them as a mask to shade the shapes with Panel Pastels, then stamped Penny Black image through the apertures. The sentiment is from the same slapstick stamp set........details in the thumbnails below.
As I have used Pan Pastels on the above card I thought I would enter it for their challenge:
Pan Pastels - Anything Goes
Hotshot Crafts - Clean and Simple
My final piece is using one of Teri's lovely Delicious Doodles wintertime images, which I printed out and coloured very lightly with Pan Pastels. I distress the edges a little to give it an aged feel and simply matted it onto some red card stock and added a red satin ribbon.
Thanks so much for taking a look and I really hope you'll be able to join in with our challenges this month.
