Through the Craft Room Door ATG Challenge – September 1st 2020 – sponsored by Le AnnsWorld 101

Published September 1, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello and my apologies for not having blogged for a while. Bit naughty I know but I am back now.

This week on Through the Craft Room Door we are generously sponsored by LeAnnsWorld101 and you can find the digi shop here.

I have chosen to use the image LeAnn’s Party and below you can see how I have laid out the design

I chose a 8×8 inch card for the design and the mats and layers are all from paper which is in my stash and I have no idea of the brand – just loose sheets in a pile. I coloured the image using a combination of Dreamees finalisers, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and some non branded metallic markers. The sentiment is from a set included with the latest issue of Crafters Companion magazine and I thought it was something different.

I hope you like what I have created and if you are inspired you will join our challenge Through the Craft Room Door.

Until next time

❤️

Anything Goes Challenge – Through the Craft Room Door – 4th August 2020

Published August 4, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to yet another challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door. This week we were sadly let down by a sponsor so we have all made something and Sheryl (my lady wonder wholes wonders with the blog and the DT) has contributed the prize.

For the challenge I was lucky in that it was my Mum’s birthday yesterday so I was making some cards and I have chosen to use this one for the challenge.

I used a fabulous stamp from Pink Ink Designs called Love Sewing and simply coloured it in with watercolour pencils as that was all it needed. I was so happy with the outcome and my mother loved it.

I hope you like my Dt project and don’t forget that you can enter the challenge too. For details please visit Through the Craft Room Door.

challenges this card is entered for are

Through the Craft Room Door ATG Challenge – week beginning July 21st

Published July 21, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to another challenge on Through the Craft Room Door (and if you didn’t know it is my challenge blog which I took over last year). This week we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and I have used an image of theirs called Christmas Cupcake – Digi 4.

I coloured the image with as much sparkle as I could and kept to Christmas themed colours. Once coloured I mounted onto black and then red. I found a piece of green card which I knew would fit in with this. I fixed the green card to my base card and then added some ribbon as a background before mounting my image. So I have kept it as simple as possible. I may add a Merry Christmas at a later date or add the sentiment in Welsh I haven’t decided so I left it blank for now.

So would you like to join us for our anything goes challenge this week? If so then please visit Through the Craft Room Door – Anything Goes challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and come back soon

Through the Craft Room Door DT – Anything Goes Challenge – 7th July 2020

Published July 7, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello.

This week the team are using images from our sponsor SheepSki Designs for our anything goes challenge. I was really inspired by the images and chose two for the challenge and the third one we could have used I will use for something else.

I wanted to create some background for the challenge pieces so as you see a lot of scooters in and around Rome when you see TV clips I decided to a set of stamps by Rare Earth.

For Harley I have used a stamp from the Rome set and coloured with watercolour pencils before adding the image and mounting on the paper, I had chosen.

Harley by SheepSki Designs

For Alana, I chose the Paris set by Rare Earth and again coloured in using watercolour pencils before mounting the image and creating my mat and layers.

I hope that you like both these images. The team have really brought the images to life this week.

If you feel inspired then please head over to Through the Craft Room Door and take our challenge? We love to see all your makes and you never know you could win a prize!

Thank you for stopping by and please pop by again soon.

Createful Heart June Challenge.

Published June 17, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Here is my card for the June challenge over at Createful Heart. As this is the challenge before Independence Day I decided to use USA flag waving to honour my many American friends and I have loads of them!! I have simply used the image in two sizes and mounted on some silver mirri card. To finish the design I used a Tim Holtz stamp and mounted the whole design onto black card and accented with red, white and blue pearls. I hope you like it.

Lots of love

Through the Craft Room Door Challenge – 9th June

Published June 9, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello crafting friends and welcome to another challenge which has been posted on Through the Craft Room Door, which has been sponsored this week by DRS designs.

 

For the challenge this week I have used the image Daffodil – Butterfly- Circle. I printed this image onto my chosen medium and then coloured in with my Spectrum Noir markers. Once satisfied with my image I, chose an 8×8 card and layered some black and yellow paper on it to complement the lovely daffodils. The sentiment was one I had laying around so I used that. It is a bright and cheerful card, and should put a smile on the face of anyone receiving it.

So if you would like to join our challenge this week please pop over to Through the Craft Room Door and join in the fun. The DT would love you to share your makes with us.

Much love and see you soon

I have kept my design simple.  I simply printed the image of the Narwhal out and cut it out.  I managed to find some lovely blue textured paper in my stash and mounted it on that, adding a sentiment and some pearls.

Through the Craft Room Door – ATG Tuesday May 12th 2020 sponsored by The Cutting Cafe

Published May 15, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to the challenge from Tuesday which I am very late in putting up this week.

This week our challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door is sponsored by The cutting Cafe  and for me this was a first.  I am terrified of my brother Scan n Cut at the best of times but this week I had to download and use these files to make a shadow box card.  Cue a lot of bad language but I eventually did it.  I even used some Hello Kitty scrapbooking paper which is years old and which I bought for my niece.  Thought it would be a pleasant change.  So everything I have used is Hello Kitty.  As you can see I managed to make the card and it doesn’t look to shabby at all.  I should try and use my Scan n Cut more…I have said that a lot recently!!


I hope you like what I have created but do pop over to the blog and see what my crafty team have made, they have outdone themselves this time!!  Don’t forget our challenges are always anything goes and you are in with a chance of being our randomly chosen winner or chosen as Top 3.

Until next time
