Fantastic Felties

Hello everyone! This week was the Design Team from The Daring Cardmakers very busy.
Nat came up with really fantastic challenge to
create some cards with using a felt.

"This week I want to see you get creative with felt.
I just love the stuff but seem to always do the same old same old with it... so I'm really looking forward to seeing what creative ideas you come up with.
You can use felt to make your own handmade embellishments (even include some threading and beading if you're feeling energetic), use some pre-made felties, or even raid the accessories sale bins for something unique to add to your project!"

This is my card:

Christmas card and

Christmas decoration in one

Hope that I have given you some idea how to make this year Christmas cards or decorations?

Get creative!

Used Material:

Cream card for the base, Blue cardstock, Echo Park For The Record patterned papers, Felt snowflake and flower from HobbyCraft, Martha Stewart border and snowflake punch, Lace, Prima adhesive pearl stickers, Papermania alphabet stickers, Letraset alphabet transfer, Large eyelet, Cover button, Pinking scissors, Twine, Thread and ink pad.

Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone. I am so happy to be  back on the board after my laptop collapsed :0)
So here I am with a new machine and new creative ideas. 
Today I want to share with you my design for Daringcardmakers - Sketch Challenge.

And here is my card:

I tried orange and blue combo this time

I punched out the crochet flower from Martha Stewart new edition of punches all over the page. I cut the edges then ruffled muslin trim from Tea House Bridge and layered on the vintage printed label.

All patterned papers are Melissa Frances Kitchy Papers and the orange cardstock just a perfect match.
'Happy Halloween' sentiment is also Melissa Frances :0)
I think her collection is my new obsession :0) 

All the buttons I used are from Tea House Bridge you should go and check their side they've got interesting staff to buy ;0)

Have a lovely and crafty Wednesday!
