DT Inspiration Challenge

The A Passion for Papertrey’s Design Team Inspiration challenge

The challenge is to find a card from one of the members of the design team and let it inspire you.  I didn’t have much time to play, so CASed Lisa’s Johnsons’ card from this months release.


I haven’t change much, turned the card on its side so its landscape. I cut seven equal sized squares (I didn’t have a punch the right size), heat embossed one of the flowers from Peace Poinsettia, one to each of the squares. I then added a little bit of sparkle to each using stardust stickles. The greeting is from Signature Greetings and is stamped in Pure Poppy, I added two lines across the bottom of the card, finally punched the corner with a corner rounder.


It’s a great little card for using up those little bits of cardstock we all save!

First Christmas Card

And another CASE, This card by Nichole Heady was so beautiful I knew I had to recreate it in someway, shape or form.  My photos don’t do it any justice the colours are not coming out on my screen the same IRL.  The card is beautiful (I think so anyway).  Nichol is a genius.


Stamps: Harvest Berries, Peaceful Poinsettia
Cardstock: SU Real Red
Designer Paper: SU DSP Patterns Stack: Subtles, Certainly Celery
Mediums: Versamark,  SU Real Red & Old olive
Embellishments: Xmas Red Stickles, Gold embossing powder, Lemon Tart buttons
Tools: Heat Gun, pricking tool, Big shot, Bloom Builders #3 die


I love the dimension these blooms give to the card.

This is probably my last submission to Anything Goes over on A Passion for Papertrey, unless I manage another hour or so (or should that read ‘afternoon’, what's left of it) in the craft room ;O)  Thank you ladies for a great fortnight of crafting.

Felt iPhone CASE

While pursuing Pinterest Wednesday evening I came across this creation and knew I had to recreate it, believe me its been a few years since I threaded a needle and then it was for cross-stitch where you get to follow a pattern! So this is full of mistakes, but I still love it


I used some of my PTI felt, which I have to admit to having owned for a little while and never cut into until last night. It is beautiful to work with!


My case, really isn’t as professionally finished as Kara’s (there’s a few more pictures on her blog here) but with a few lessons I can see this could get addictive.

Oh and if the picture didn't give it away, its another entry into A Passion for Papertrey's Anything Goes ;O)
