#211 No Patterned Paper

Valérie is hosting today's challenge, No Patterned Paper

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the No Patterned Paper theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT

Valérie
For me this challenge was an easy one because I don't use often patterned paper on my cards. I started by inking a blank watercolor cardstock then I used a stencil and cut 4 squares from it. I added a border with a die for more interest. Then I stamped, coloured and cut my images. For the finishing touch I added a fun sentiment. Et voilà!
 
Josephine
I've used some Sue Wilson dies, stamps from Printable Heaven and Creative Stamping magazine and Distress inks to make a card for a friend's baby shower.

To create my card I used several different Distresses ink and a sewing stitch stamp.  I added  a wooden bird cage and a combination of leaves and gold flowers.  I then added a tag and a sentiment stamp .

Mary

I hand drew the car on the cobbles and after colouring using Promarkers added the stamped dog. The sentiment was computer generated.

Jo
I made a Christmas card topper this time, I layered an image from Hunkydory onto a piece of red card then added a white die cut frame & finished with a few gems & a Christmas sentiment on a layered banner die embellishment.

Marlene
I have used an LOTV image, coloured with promarkers, used a embossing folder and various dies

Lin
My card was made with a stencil, a die, three stamps and soft relief paste. Please see my blog for details

Glenda
I used a Bugaboo image, Stampin Up's Gorgeous Grunge & Party Pants stamp sets and several butterfly dies.

Julie

I have used Creative Expressions Double Stitched Hexagon  Die and Phil Martins Lavish Leaves Stamp set.

Margaret
My card is very simple.  I used part of a Masterboard I created a while back for the background.  Simply adhered it to a card blank and then added a die cut, a few flowers  and prills and a computer generated greeting.  Looking forward to seeing how you interpret this Theme!  Have a lovely day!

Hope you all love this beautiful nameplate which I made for my sweet home. For more images and details about my project, please visit my blog by clicking on my name above.

Jackie

My card was made using a stamped image cut into squares to make the window shape, and the background was made using the same stamp with versamark ink.

Maike
I love creating shaker cards and for a "No Patterned paper" challenge I think an ocean always works great. The background was created using Distress Oxide Inks and the images are from Lawn Fawn. Happy crafting!

Angela
Tim Holtz Cocktails Blueprint stamps use for this card, stamped on white card and coloured. Next I stamped directly on the black card blank with white ink and embossed the glass with white powder. Finished by attaching the coloured glass, ribbon, sentiment and gems. Happy crafting, Angela xXx

Lin is hosting today's challenge, Birthdays

Dies from Crafter's Companion and Tattered Lace, some pearlescent grey card, a rubber stamp, some glitter glue and a couple of sticky gems - and the result is a birthday card for a friend.

Judy

I used the Cat Crazy Stamps from Tim Holtz for this birthday card for one of my younger family members. The circle stamp in the background is a older Stampin Up stamp from my collection of rubber stamps. The background ink are Tim Holtz's Distress Oxides and the balloons are coloured with Copics.

Mary

I used Sheena Douglass' Adorable Anemone stamp and die set, cutting and stamping four copies so that I could build up a decoupaged image. I used Promarkers to colour them. The sentiment was cut using the Tattered Lace die happy birthday swirl.

Angela

I made this card using another of my Masterboards which had been decorated using Paper Artsy stencils, Distress Oxide inks and a variety of stamps. The sentiment was cut twice and mounted to give extra depth.

Jackie

My card was made with Hunkydory card and a whopper topper sheet, and some paper and dies from my stash.

Glenda

I used an image from Beccy's place and followed her tutorial to colour the image.

Hello Friends, today I want to share with you a scrapbook made using Eno Greeting Paper pack. I used Tim Holtz Sizzix- Thinlits die set (Celebration Words Script), die cut elements, trims, ribbons, glitter sheet, flat back pearls, ready made foam flowers and other supplies from my stash. You can visit my blog for more images and details about my project.

Julie

My card was made using Paper Boutique Summer Blooms From Creative Crafting World

Marlene

For this card I used one of Lili of the Valley Teenage Stamps,this one is James Texting, coloured with Promarkers.

Jo


Margaret

For my card, I used papers from an older Prima collection called Rondelle. A small piece of lace was adhered under the paper layers and I added some die cuts, gauze and upholstery thread under the flower cluster. The metal trinket is a Cameo Frame by Tim Holtz and the ribbon bow was made from seam binding.

Maike

For my card, I have used the pandas from the "Party Pals" set by Avery Elle. Usually I shy away from black card bases, but with this colour combination I thought it would bring out the bright colours even more.

Hello, today I want to show you two simple, birthday cards for a little boys.

Kimx

I have had several milestone birthday cards to make just recently including this one for my 'Gym Buddy'. She regularly plays golf, and we do the occasional turn at Boxersise at the gym so I used these elements to personalise her 60th birthday card.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
