Crafty Boots Challenge: BINGO!

Hey all! Another Crafty Boots Challenge! This one is quite exciting!!

It has been set by Denise and the idea is to use the 'elements' that are in a line: either vertical (ie Green, Pearls and Yellow) horizontal (ie Yellow, Dots and Lace) or diagonal (ie Ribbons, Stripes and Yellow) For a bit of extra fun you can also choose to use the 4 corners or go for the 'full house' which would mean using all the 'elements' on the project. I wasn't that brave and decided to go for 'Green', 'Pearls' and 'Yellow' and here's my creation:

This card has been created on an 'Old Olive' square cardbase. On a smaller square of 'Certainly Celery cardstock i stamped the rose image and the beautiful sentiment 'Happiness held is the seed, happiness shared is the flower' (from the 'Happiness shared' stampset) both inked in 'Old Olive'. I glued this to the centre of the cardbase and then created a border using the fabby 'Ribbon Lace Border Punch', which i punched from bright 'Daffodil Delight' card. I snipped these and glued them into a square formation (I have to thank my friend Jade for showing me this technique!!) and then glued it around the rose image to frame it. Finally i placed some 'Basic Pearls' (half-back pearls which already have adhesive - just peel them off and stick!) in the corners of the 'Ribbon Lace' frame!

I loved this challenge and the great thing is everyones creations will be so different!! I wonder if anyone will be courageous enough to attempt a full house! Can't wait to see all your entries!!

  2. Lovely card! Fab choice of elements! By the time you read this I think you'll only have 4 days left at work! Woohoo!

  3. This is so cute, I love how you've done the border! xxx

  4. This is gorgeous, really love the way you've added the pearls, it looks fabulous Amy!!! xx

  5. This is lovely, i love the ribbon border lace punch you have used, really delicate and effective. x

  6. Beautiful work Amy. I also love how you have done the border. I might have to try that. I am always at a bit of a loss at what to do at the corners, but never thought of snipping and gluing. I learn something new every day! Your materials / papers are gorgeous as well. Just lovely all around. I hope you enjoyed the challenge xx Denise

  7. Lovely card, so elegant! I agree that the Bingo challenge has really brought out different sides to the DT... hope it'll do the same for us! Thank you.
