Scribble and Scrap Challenge 44 Always Anything Goes

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Sunday everyone. I had a lovely day yesterday. I was made to feel very special.

Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge blog. The theme is always anything goes and there is a prize so it is worth having a go.

This card was made for a commission. The inspiration came from the pattern on a mug the lady who wanted the card made  shared with me to show her friend's taste.


The background was made with  striplet die Eternal Rings by Sue Wilson it was cut three times without the cutting edge to make the lattice. I found a patterned paper to put behind and then I used CS Pearl PVA glue to add the pearls. This was left to dry for a few hours while I did the rest of the cutting. 


To cut the name I used my Tonic letter dies.


This was made with one of Sue Wilson's Flag dies and Britannia word dies. I love the piercing round the flag.


I made the flowers with the Tim Holtz's Tattered florals Sizzix die, The centres were made with a Spellbinders die. Some CS pearl PVA was added to the centre of the flowers.


I made a matching box for the present I had to use two sheets of A1 card to make the box.


I am a very lucky lady. For my birthday my mother-in-law gave me the rest of the money to buy the ScanNcut. In fact she gave it to me a few weeks before this meant I was able to take advantage of a very good offer. The Happy Birthday is an included file and the first thing I cut with the macine. I think it is going to be very useful. 


Have a wonderful day today.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  12. You lucky lucky girl! A SannCut AND a workshop with JL! I'll be interested to know how you get on with the SnC I must be the only one in the country that returned one because I didn't get on with it (it was when they first came out and wish I'd persevered) My card would stick fast to mat A test cut would be perfect and then when I tried to cut an image it would feather it A scanned image would cut perfectly on one edge but leave a halo on the opposite edge I don't batch make cards and I like the "bevelled" edge that you get with a die
    BUT I bet I'll get one in the near future now I've seen what Mel Heaton can do
    Enjoy using it
    Today's card is gorgeous I love the pop of colours you've used and the layout is perfect to showcase them
