Flo Langley Alice CI FaceValue Challenge 001AWMPlease double click the photo to see the detail.

I had so much fun with this project and made such a mess on my craft table with stencil masks, paints and inks.  Who would have thought it for one little card!!  I like making the mess but not so much cleaning up!!

Flights of fancy – card making

Hi everyone

Well, who watched the tennis then?  As normal, I took my two weeks annual holiday to sit in front of the box, watch the entertainment, ate too much junk food and put loads of weight on!!!  The big diet has started!!

Today I would like to share with you some cards and a tag made with the newly released Chocolate Baroque stamps.

Florence Langley CBDT July Bird Projects 013a1wmAlong the same lines.
I absolutely adore the cage stamps in these sets.

Chocolate Baroque Color Challenge and Free Digi Background

Hi everyone

Today I would like to share a card made using Lesley Wharton’s new free digi background papers.

This digi background paper is available to you free and can be downloaded here on the CB Color Challenge Blog.

If you have missed any of the free giveaways, click on the link above and scroll down to the bottom of the page to labels and then click on Digital Downloads.  Have fun!

My first thought when I saw this background was Christmas so here is my little offering for the Challenge.

FloLangleyChocolate Baroque Challenge 010AWMLD3
I am not one to spend a lot of time on Christmas cards so these digi background papers are perfect for me.

The digi background is so pretty in its own right, I didn’t really think it was necessary to alter it too much.

All I have done to make this card is add a few stamped and embossed snowflakes to the background paper and add the sentiment.

The first anniversary of the CB Color Challenge is fast approaching so do keep your eye out for the all of the fun things planned for the occasion and to join in.

That’s all from me today.

Crafty Individuals Challenge – Face Value

Hi everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the warm weather and not melting too much!

It’ time for a new challenge over on the Crafty Individuals blog.
I have had the honor of choosing the theme for this month’s challenge and have chosen “Face Value”.  I am thinking people, children, animals or birds. Anything with a face.  So there is lots of scope for you to interpret the theme as you wish.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

For full details of the challenge and to join in the fun please click HERE.

Here are a few cards I made for the challenge.
I hope you like them.

FloLangleyJulyFaceValueChallenge 025AWMFLFor both of these cards I have used the fabulous Giovanna Zara Illustrations Stamp Lovely Day CI 419.

For my second card I teamed up the Lovely Day stamp with Beside The Seaside CI 278 and Seaside Treasures CI 272 to turn her into a Mermaid.

FloLangleyJulyFaceValueChallenge 031AWMwd2FL1For my third card I have used another stamp in the Giovanna Zara Illustration  range – Frida Dreaming CI 418. Love these stamps.  The sentiment “It’s a wonderful world” is from Wonder of Childhood CI 292.

FloLangleyJulyFaceValueChallenge 034AWMFLFor all of these cards I have used Crafty Individuals Background Papers for mat layering purposes.

I hope you will be able to join in the challenge this month.
