Challenge 27: Recipe!

Hi everyone! Thankyou for taking part last week This week's theme is a recipe: on your card you must add the following '1 ribbbon, 1 flower, 2 buttons and some glitter'. You can do what ever else you want on your work as long as these things are used.

We've come up with a few ideas for you, which we hope you enjoy.

Congratulations to sumbine you have won last week's prize - a nature embossing stencil, please email us at mytimetocraftchallenge@hotmail.co.uk and we will pop this in the post for you.

Have fun!

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy

For my card I have used an image from the Artful Stamper. I have added two buttons to the wheels of the pram. The patterned paper is Papermania and to this I have added some Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing, embellished with knotted satin ribbon. The image has been coloured with Sakura Stardust pens for the glitter part of the recipe and I have also added a couple of pink sparkling gems. My flower was popped into the top corner.

I stamped AJ and Lulu and coloured them with Pro Markers and gave them glittery wings. I added some Papermania ribbon and buttons and a Prima flower. I stamped the 'twins' sentiment and cut the scalloped edge freehand.

Out of pink card I made a purse shape, covered the front with patterned paper and glittered the flower centres. I added a ribbon handle and 2 buttons as a closure. I embellished the flap with a paper flower with a gem in the centre and added a stitched effect around the edge with white gel pen.


For this recipe I have used one of Linda Luckin's new daisy design stamps. I stamped it in black versafine then coloured it in with watercolour pencils and added dazzling diamonds from stampin' up to the middle! Two small buttons stitched to the top. Finished with a bit of ribbon and a paper flower.

This week I made an Olympic Games themed card. I watercoloured 3 tilda images, giving each one a medal, using 1 ribbon chopped into 3. I used some shiny gold, silver and bronze paper for the medals. I made a podium, using rub-ons for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. I added one flower, some glitter, 2 buttons, some stitching and a crochet flower. I printed out some words about the Olympic Games' history and distressed with inks. I printed out the Olympic rings added a brad to reveal the word 'believe'. I thought I had to make something to celebrate the Olympics. I think Tilda's proud shes won something!!!

Scrapbook Page
I have used paper from the Basic Grey Sugared Collection for the background and matted a photo of Louise on. I added a ribbon, 2 buttons also from the BG Collection, a paper flower and some journalling. I have used Stickles for the holes in the buttons and on the flower for a glittery effect.
