"Primary Colours" Colour Challenge - Inkspirational Challenges

Hello fellow crafty peps :)

It is time for a new challenge at Inkspirational Challenges and 
this time we have our colour challenge. 

Are you ready to play along??


This one was a bit tricky for me and to make it as simple as possible I chose to work with only one primary colour - Red. 

Here is how it turned out.....

4 Months Till Christmas

I am in the midst of my summer holiday. Oh well, maybe not exactly in the middle as I start work again on Monday. 

BUT today is the 24th of August, 
so there is only 4 months til Christmas!

I am therefore over at Operation Skriv Hjem's (OSH / OWH) blog today sharing Christmas card inspiration together with Charlie. 

Here is the card(s) I made for today: 



And here are a couple extra I made.
 
 
Wish you all a wonderful & creative day.

Designers Choice "Use designpaper" - Inkspirational Challenges


It's time for a new challenge over at 

I am back again at INK after my absence due to illness in the family. My Mom is doing so much better now and is recovering slowly but steadily. 

We are having our "Designers Choice" challenge and it has been up to fellow design teamie Shauna to choose the theme this time.

  Shauna has chosen the theme:


Here is how my card turned out....and I did go for the optinal twist with stamping on designpapir. I even went as far as using heat embossing ;)



 For the heat embossing I have used a total of 3 powder mixes 'cause I have used a layering stamp set for this.

 
Go visit the other DT girls and leave them some crafty love too...
 
Don't forget to have fun :)

5 Months Till Christmas + VIDEO


Holy banana, it's hot in little Denmark. Here we have been having the most depressing summer weather for weeks with only 15-18 degrees and lots of rain. Now suddenly it hits 27-30 degrees and full blown sunshine! Phew, I am melting. 

I know it's completely the opposite season but today is the 24th of July which means there is only 5 months till Christmas. Not easy to get into the mood in this heat!

As usual I am over at the Danish Operation Write Home blog today - Operation Skriv Hjem

For today I also made a video showing the technique I've used for this card. It's a heat embossing technique I've had refreshed on the Heat Wave class at OnlineCardClasses.


 The Danish sentiment means "Merry Christmas" in English. 

The sentiment is created using letter dies from Avery Elle. 


This heat embossing technique starts with using double sided tape sheets. The process is shown from start till finish in the video :)

This card is completely "Glitter proffed" meaning that NO glitter bits at all can rub off. This is very important when the card is going to be sent to our soldiers stationed abroad. Loose glitter bits can put the lives of our soldiers at risk as they might stick to their skin and in worst case make the light reflect in it and make them an easy target for the enemy. 


Are you making Christmas cards yet?

Hugs, 
Pia
