Allsorts Week 126 - Halloween

This week at Allsorts the theme is Halloween
we want to see your spooky creations!

This card was made with a bargain I bought at the Harrogate show the 12 x 12  set of My Minds Eye papers were £1.50 for the pack!!!! and to top it off the 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard shapes was £1.00 total bargain great for halloween but also fab for boys birthday cards too!
Different style of card today  and the photo does not do the dark card any justice it is a deep brown pearlescent card from Craftworkcards its such amazing quality and its just perfect for your embossing folders as it gives the crispest embossed patterns ive seen with no tearing or creasing!!

I hope you enjoyed my card and I hope you can join us this week

Allsorts Week 125 - Lavender and Lace

Good Morning!

Time for this weeks Allsorts challenge, the theme this week is

A little tough for me this week as purple tones are the one colour that I find most difficult to work with and it's rare to find purple stuff in my stash too lol don't get me wrong I love purple as a colour but it doesn't like me lol ..... Cute squares to the rescue again this week with this gorgeous pre-coloured image, right back to making more stock for a ladies night we are having at our local club to raise money for our junior rugby section.
Photos are still shocking i'm afraid really need to start taking them in the daylight but to be fair theres not much about at the moment!!

I used my new marranne designs die this set comes with two christmas bauble decorations star and bauble and the star is my fav under the gold bell (yes i heat embossed that too lol) is a tiny tag although you cant see it very well everything is embossed with gold embossing powder including the snowflake punched border and tiny tag, to give the tiny tag a bit of interest I went to the depths of my stash draws and found some small floral peel offs and stuck one on the tag before I put versamark on then took off peel off and the sprinkled with embossing powder to leave the shape of the flower on the tiny tag.
Some green organza ribbon to finish to match the image and thats my tag for this weeks Allsorts Challenge
