City Crafter #298

Today Kirsty is our host and she picked
a photo inspiration challenge:

Kirsty asks us to create a project inspired by the photo.
Paris; I immediately thought of 
the horrible attacks of last year.
And the quote "je suis Charlie" 
(which means "I am Charlie")
I used papers from a 
paper pad called "I am".... 
Black, white and gold are elements 
from the photo inspiration:





A golden heart for the city of romance and love:

A special one because it's challenge #100!!!
We're supposed to lift this card:




As you can see in this card:

City Crafter #297

Good morning!

We have a new challenge at the City Crafter.  
Today Marina is our host and
she picked the theme:
"Fantastic Plastic".
And asks us to create a card or 
project and add something plastic.
For example: acetate, shrink plastic, etc.

I used plastic in various ways for a 
shaker card. Lots of pink and plastic 
for a baby girl.
My shaker window is from acetate.
My pink sequins are from plastic and
that little deer is from "puffed" plastic. 





I bought them at Marks&Spencer
 while we were in Liverpool last year.
And cute enough to add to a baby card:

Dutch Card Lovers #247 & Just Us Girls #328

Hello!

One of my goals for 2016 is to decrease
 the huge amount of patterned papers.
Most of the time I don't want to use 
them because they are too pretty:)
But here is another card made with
 more than cardstock only:)
And based on two challenges:
We 're supposed to use flowers. 
I used only one....

And Just Us Girls:
The theme is Tic Tac Toe.
I choose Die cuts- Stamps-Flowers





The flower is a die cut sent to me by Gerdine.
She cut it from silver foil and I love it.
Simplicity in grey, white and silver:




Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your weekend!

City Crafter #296

Hello and good morning!

It's my turn to host this
 weeks' 
challenge at the City Crafter
I choose the theme:
"For the love of pets"
I ask you to add a pet to your card or project: 
a cat, a dog a bird etc.
I have a cute photo to inspire you :)



(photocredit)


I choose a bird and made a thank you card.
The recipient loves blue so this card 
was easy peasy to assemble:)
My songbird die is still a favorite so I used it again:




The strip of patterned paper is from Echo Park.
It's just a small strip but also a small step to use
 up my papers pads to decrease my stash :)
Twine and rhinestones for a finishing touch.
My apologies for the photos;
 it's hard for me to get decent photos with bad daylight....



This week our Guest Designer is Dana M 
Hop over to her blog to see more of her talent! 
You can find more inspiration from her 
and the other team members on our blog.
I hope that you can squeeze 
in some time to join us.
We are offering the winner 
a spot as our Guest Designer.
 Thanks for stopping by!
