A witchy brew

Hello again it's Jane here with some more inspiration for our current autumn colours and/or Halloween challenge. My first make was traditional autumn colours so I thought I would go with the Halloween mix today, especially as it is the 13th!

I also wanted to play with the awesome new distress mica stains..any excuse! To see how my witch came to life just jump on your broomstick and pop on over to my blog here where all is revealed. 

Have a great Halloween at the end of the month,

August & September Winners, DTSM & Top 3s

  Hello everybody! Here are our August & September Winners.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

The August winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is


Congratulations, you voucher code & badge will be emailed to you very soon
_____________ 

Hello everyone, Debs here with my top 3 and DTSM, which all show monochromatic in all its glory, and follow the simple rule of using only 1 colour.

First


Alice - entry number 39 - a fabulous take on the theme, which shows real skill  in the stamping of the lighter background and going darker for the foreground. Great use of composition too. 



Second 



Chrissy - entry number 17 - I love the simplicity of this card, which is hard to achieve , well it is for me lol. A really lovely card!


Third



Ionabunny - entry 19 - a truly monochromatic card with luscious hues of blue. I love the combination of the embossing folder 

with the stamping both in the background and as a focal point. 



Lastly the Design Team special mention 




Mac - entry number 43- this really caught my eye. I can see lots of skills and techniques went into the making of this card 

which, is clean and simple in design, but not simple to achieve. Starting with the fabulous composition, it is beautifully stamped and I love all the shimmer on the leaves 

and flower, really loved it, as I’m sure did the recipient. 


Well done to all who entered and a special thank you to my top three and Design Team special mention.

Hugs

Congratulations, your voucher code & badge will be emailed to you very soon
_____________
 

We had lots of beautiful entries for the September challenge I hosted. I really did enjoy seeing all your leaf themed projects. As always to choose a Top 3 and a special mention is tough but after a lot of deliberation, here they are in order of their entry. 

Number 14 Emma

The unusual oxides Emma chose to stencil and to colour her leaves with made for such a delightful card.

Number 61 Mac Mabel

I am a sucker for wreath type projects and the one Mac Mabel  made using her wonderful leaves is so beautiful, topped off by some gorgeous acorns too.

Number 74 Sid

I do love all things Tim Holtz and Sid created a beautiful tag using Tim's leaf dies. He added them to a  water coloured  background, so lovely. 

and last but by no means least is my Design team special mention. This goes to
 Number 83 Jane


Jane used lots of leaves and ephemera to create a gorgeous  junk journal. Do check it out. Jane is a brand new blogger, which these days is a rare delight so give her some newbie love too. 

Thanks everyone for sharing all your lovely makes and entering the challenge. Enjoy the autumn and keep crafting.

Hugs,

Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride and don't forget to join us in our October Challenge xx

Hedgehogs and leaves

Hello again it's Jane here today back with my 2nd design team make for the September challenge, which I am delighted to be hosting this month. I used the brilliant brand new Visible Image "Hedgehog hugs" stamp sets, with some of Tim Holtz' awesome 3D oak leaf die cuts, which I altered with his new distress mica stain sprays. They are so super sparkly.

If you scamper over to my blog  here you can see how my make came together. But be quick, just in case my hedgepig decides to hibernate 😀

I'm so looking forward to seeing all your "the leaves begin to fall" projects. Enjoy!

Bye for now,

September 2021 - The Leaves Begin To Fall

 Welcome to our September Challenge. This month the theme is "the leaves begin to fall" chosen by the lovely Jane

Jane

  Welcome to September, wow autumn is just around the corner now.  I am delighted to be the host of the brand new challenge. I thought that I would chose, "the leaves begin to fall" as the theme for this month. Autumn is now just around the corner and the leaves take on their autumnal hues and begin to fall.  So I would like to see leaves as a main part of your project, either as the main background, or as the focal. No tiny single leaf in the corner of your make please!

Here is my make, yes those naughty snarky cats are up to mischief again amongst the falling leaves. 

I used both stenciled and die cut leaves for my background. If you would like to see how I put this together just pop on over to my blog here; where all is revealed. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's makes for the month. Even if I don't have time to comment I will be visiting everyone and I will enjoy seeing the leaves beginning to fall. 

I will  back on Friday with my 2nd make.

Bye for now,


Hello all! It´s September already - I can´t believe it!For the falling leaves theme this month I made an art journal page. I used the pretty Tim Holtz thinlits die set for all the leaves.If you want to see some more, please hop to my blog.

Happy September!

Miriam

When I think of September I think of  darker nights and Autumn.  I love seeing the leaves on the trees changing colour.  The leaves challenge has made me long for cosy nights when there is every excuse to craft!

Here is my first project:


Join me over on my blog to see how I created this card.

I can't wait to see your leaves related projects.
