This is the Daring Cardmaker's Challenge for Friday 08/06/07

and the dare goes:
Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week. This time I asked my family for ideas for this weeks dare and the best amongst a lot of ideas including power tools etc, etc was Lachlan's ideas for Space. It's been his topic at school this term. (Lachlan is seven and in Year 3). To make in a little easier on you all I've called it Celestial to also include horoscopes as well as planets, spaceships, stars, suns etc. How you use these items is up to you.

Okayyy! These are the materials I took out to do this project as I didnt really know what to make for this challenge....

I came up with...

I have used tanda horoscopes stamsp, and clever cut stamp(fairy), and some chalking for the backgroun. The fairy has been stamped with versamark then brushed over with pearl ex.

Altered Book- Vintage and sewing

I watched a demo on Altered Book on Sugarloaf products website and I really really liked what I have seen for the altered book. I do not have all the materials they used.For instance the theme was sewing and they had a See D's set for sewing.I am making one and the theme is vintage and sewing. The video has been a great source of inspiration and I want to alter the whole book by having a different theme as I go on. These are just a few pics of what I am working on at the moment.....


Wednesday Stamper's Challenge

I have made this card following the instructions on Wednesday Stamper's website. This is the first time I am doing the WS challenge.

Daring Cardmakers

This is my second card for Daring Cardmakers challenge for 'I can see clearly now....' set by Kel who said ' Okay, this week I would like you to use some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card. That's it! ' (Challenge for Friday 01/06/07...catching up really....)

I liked the idea so much that I wanted to make many cards with this challenge but time just flew by so quickly.....I know there is already another challenge today but I just had to do this one and then move on to the next:)

This is a close up view and hope you can see the dry embossed on the vellum I have achieved here.I quite like the subtleness of the embossing image Ive got here.

I have made this card using handmade printed paper(flowery one) and I have dry embossed some transparent vellum with flowery image and layered them. I have stamped the word 'wonderful' , add some gems at the four corners of the square to add some bling and finished off with organza ribbon threaded with a diamond gem(bling again).

Daring Cardmakers Challenge

This is what I've came up with. This is to start me off as I have been lacking inspiration since two days now....complete lack of creativity. I've opted for acetate as I already had some and I wanted to use these stamps since a while now. I find this challenge to be very interesting and challenging indeed. Now that I have been able to unblock the main stop button, I hope to be able to let go now.I will do some more later on.

I have used 'paisley set' from Clever cut on clear acetate . I have also used versamark ink and chalk for a light background with the same stamps. I cut away a piece of the front card and attached the stamped acetate (I have used permanent ink)to the front card with eyelets. I finished off with a piece of card stamped with a tiny 'thinking of you' stamp.
