Cupcake Craft - Challenge 11

- - 6 Comments

There's a Hole in my Bucket

This weeks Challenge was set by Jenny on the Design Team,
She choose a Hole in my bucket
I want people to make their card etc with a Hole in it - It could be an aperture card, a shaker card or anything aslong as it has a Hole in it!
I don't really mean for it to be a bucket, That's just the song!

There is a Prize up for Grabs this week on Cupcake Craft Challenges, 1 Lucky Person will receive a Bag of Around the World Brads, Cool yeah?

So what you waiting for get over to Cupcake Craft Challenges and join in!

Oh wait scroll down and take a look at my Design Team piece for the challenge this week first though please.


This card was a challenge in itself for me again,
Firstly as i haven't been well all week this is the first time i have attempted to do any crafting in over a week ( nearly 2 weeks)
Another thing is my Darling Partner brought me some Stampin' up goodies when i wasn't myself,
He got me some Whisper white card, I heard people mention this saying how it was brilliant with the sansdour stuff? personally i didn't believe it as i got on "ok" with the Papermill Linen card(front/backside depending on the look i wanted)
When i say OK , i mean its OK but it hasn't made me jump for joy and want to pick up my expensive pencils and do more , BUT Now I'm officially in love with my new Stampin up Whisper White card! everybody is right it glides so well , its just the perfect thickness for cardmaking ie for images, Nothing smudges, nothing bleeds, it just Glides!

Sorry i got excited over White card then!

Back onto my card for this weeks challenge...

The other reason it was a challenge for me is , its an A4 card again ( A3 folded in Half )
And it was the first time i have really used my pencils on a card and I'm so pleased with the colouring,
The Chair on the card i used a little Anitas 3-d Gloss, Over the "wood" to give really nice Rich Shiny wood effect, it gives the "bevelled" feel to the chair and makes it come to life.
I have also bevelled the Whiff of joy stamp onto the chair so she isn't laying flat, But i forgot to take a picture of that to show you.

Using my new Cuttlebug ( another new toy from my Partner )
I have tons of Cuttlebug Embossing boards, so it was time i got to use them?
So out comes the Christmas Tree, embossed behind the chair so it looks like she is sitting in front on a Christmasy day drinking her hot drink in front of the tree, The Tree has a slash of Green Gemstones on.

For my "hole" i have used 3 Eyelets, and also The Scalloped Edge at the bottom of the Green paper has Punched Holes in.

Hope you like it



Recipe i have used,
Stamps: Whiff of Joy
Ink/Colour: Brilliance Black, Faber-Castell Polycromos, Sansdour
Paper:Basic Grey, Bazzill
Cardstock: Stampin up Whisper White Card
Ribbon:Chatter B-O-X
Accessories:Eyelets, 3d Anitas Gloss, Stampin up Metal Bookplate & Brads
