Quirky Crafts challenge site is 'Alice in Wonderland'. You don't have to have any specific Alice stamps to join in, just use anything that is mentioned in the book. For example, for this card, which is for my Dad's birthday, I used playing cards, the white rabbits pocket watch and a tape measure (Alice kept growing and shrinking). This card also fits with the monochrome theme from Stampin' for the weekend and the pound shop pretties theme from DCM (the little playing cards were 4 packs for £1 in poundstretchers.
Quirky Crafts challenge, being inspired by the Mad Hatters Tea party. The scroll image is from our sponsor, the stamping boutique, and the tea cup stamp was free with the Crafty Stamper a few months ago. I used paper piecing for the first time on this card (for the tea cup tower) and so this card also fits with Kaboodle Doodles 'new technique' and fussy and fancy's 'paper piecing' challenge. As the card has a yummy cake complete with a crown, the card also fits with 'food' for Speedy the cats friends, 'sweet treats' for SCSC and 'hats' (I hope the crown counts) for MTTC.
Less is More challenge, which was to make a card using three squares. Now I had about three attempts at this card before I came up with something I was happy with! I used a cuttle bug embossing folder for the three squares, mounted them with a thin strip of pink showing added a pink Penny Black flower stamp to each, a ribbon and three pearls and finallly a Kanban sentiment stamp. This is actually my second attempt with these elements as the first time I mounted them too high on the card! This card also fits with the flowers theme from Stamp something and crazy4challenges, and the anything goes theme from do you stack up. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone,
