I missed the last couple of DCM challenges as I've had a few pc problems so I was looking forward to the new dare:
Doing these dares is such a joy. We all love seeing what you create so much. The way that you have taken up and run with both the Celestial dare and the Midweek extra this week has just been awesome.As a reward - and as I was so strict last time I set a dare - here is a nice broad theme to get your creative juices flowing.
Dry embossing with a light box or with a die cutting machine.
Using embossing powders or triple embossing.
Using pre-embossed papers.
Embossing with found items.
Just have fun playing
The strange thing is, as I was doing the frogs, Lynne called and asked if I could make a couple of boy cards for her, one of which is for an 8 year old so this card is just right. Spooky eh?
Please forgive the corny greeting but you have to do it occasionally don't you, and at that age you can get away with it!!
The paper is an old HOTP one and the stencil is Nellie's Zoo, the alphabet stamps are by clear on clear.
This week I've decorated another notebook for a birthday present for my cousin's daughter. This time I managed to do the holes so much better so I'm happier I've learnt something else!
The paper is doodlebug, the letters are cut using the xyron and the inside stamping is from Rhonna Farrer swirls and a flower from a set I got from onefourzero.
I've also done a black and white A6 decorated notebook for a swap on bubblyfunk, but I won't post that until they've been sent out. And speaking of bubblyfunk, Caroline has put some new chipboard flowers and felt flowers in the shop, which are gorgeous. I really tried to be good and not buy more stuff, but I had to have them. I'm hoping they'll arrive tomorrow so I can stroke them lol.
