Let's Go Freestyle

It's Freestyle time at Hiding in My Craft Room this week, so it is Anything Goes!! 
In the lead up to Christmas I made quite a few cards as presents and they were made from my scrap stash 
This card was one of them

The arrows are the left over bits of the MFT Chevron Die that I used on another card, the image is from The Greeting Farm she is called Twirl Anya. 

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink stamp set Heart-2-Heart mini stamp set. 

Now it is your turn to join us at Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge #78

Have a Crafty New Year, Cheers Jennie

I trust that you have all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a great New Year. 

I have a card to share with you today that was made using scrap papers for the background, It was a great way to try to use up some of the patterned paper stash. 

The image is a digital stamp from Alicia's Little Shop she is called Alicia Loves Reading, This image fits perfectly with this stamp from the K Andrew Designs, Beautiful Thoughts stamp set

This set is no longer available, but there is still sets available at 60% off HERE. Get in quick cause when they are gone they are gone!!

At Hiding in My Craft Room this week the challenge is to do "Anything BUT Christmas"

I decided to do a Birthday card, we all need these all year around, and it was good to get back to birthday cards after all the Christmas  ones I did.

I have used a digital stamp from Wee Stamps and she is called Wee Suzi 

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink stamp set Just the Ticket
it also has a matching die too.

The background paper is from the My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy paper pad .... and I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers

Paint the Town

Here we are, it's Super Scraps Saturday again, seems like yesterday we were doing Novembers scrap card, and now we are into December Super Scraps at Hiding In My Craft Room 

For my card I decided to really try to us up some left over strips

As it worked out I had this lovely rainbow of colours in my scraps!! And they really went together well. I cut them into 1 inch strips and punched each one with my scallop punch. To get them even I have first put them on a scrap card, then attached them to that before adhering that to the black card base. 

Out of my pre-cut box I have used a silhouette of this girl on the scooter, she is from the Cricut cart Sweethearts

The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Stamp set Fashionable friends. 
Now it is your time to get into your scrap box and see what you can come up with this week and join us at Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge #75

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie

Blue Butterfly

This week at Hiding in my Craft Room it is a colour challenge

I have made this by cutting the butterfly from each of the blues I have used, and the white one too. I then pieced this back together using different pieces from each blue/white card.

The butterfly is from Cricut Everyday pop-up Cards

I then stamped the Happy birthday from Papertrey Ink in a light blue and wrote over it using a White gel pen.

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie
