Imagination Crafts - November Challenge Mid Month Inspiration - Anything Goes

Morning lovelies I hope you are all well and having a nice week.  Today is the mid month inspiration for Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog's Novembe challenge, Our theme this time is Anything Goes it is sponsored by Imagination Crafts and we have all used their fabulous products to make our projects.

Before I go on to my make I would like to point out that only entries using Imagination Crafts products will go in to the prize draw (although non IC makes can get top 3 spots).

This will be my last make for Imagination Crafts DT as I decided that I did not have the time to commit to a new term on the dt and did not reapply. I would like to say a massive thanks for having me, it has been lovely working with you all and I wish you all the very best for the future.

For this challenge I have made another very simple card just letting the stencil be the main feature. I used the Orion stencil and Antique Bronze Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts as well as one of their sentiment stamps from a christmas stamp set.


Thank you for reading this post I hope it has been of some interest, as always I love to read your comments and I hope you will all come and join in with the challenge at Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog.

Imagination Crafts - November Challenge - Anything Goes

Morning lovelies, I hope you are all well and having a good weekend, it's still crazy busy here with uni but I am loving every second of it.

Today  is the start of Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog's November challenge, Our theme this time is Anything Goes. The challenge is sponsored by Imagination Crafts and we have all used their fabulous products to make our projects.

Before I go on to my make I would like to point out that only entries using Imagination Crafts products will go in to the prize draw (although non IC makes can get top 3 spots).

For this challenge I decided to have a break from all of the Christmas stuff and just make something pretty. I have kept it really simple, the card base is made from Spellbinders grand dies I have matt and layered muslin cotton, white card and gold mirror board and then just used gold sparkle medium with the leaf scroll border stencil and a sentiment from one of Imagination Crafts  stamp sets.

Imagination Crafts - October Challenge Mid Month Inspiration - Anything Goes

Morning lovelies I hope you are all well and having a nice week.  Today is the mid month inspiration for Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog's October challenge, Our theme this time is Anything Goes it is sponsored by Imagination Crafts and we have all used their fabulous products to make our projects.

Before I go on to my make I would like to point out that only entries using Imagination Crafts products will go in to the prize draw (although non IC makes can get top 3 spots).

For this challenge I have made another very simple card as I have never actually used this stencil as a whole yet (I have used pieces of it but not the whole thing), when I got it stencilled out I just thought it was so pretty that it didn't warrant too much embellishment. So I simply matt and layered it and used a corner punch on the edges of my base card.

Imagination Crafts - October Challenge - Anything Goes

Morning lovelies, I hope you are all well and having a good week, I am writing this post on Sunday as when this goes live I will be having my freshers week at uni and it sounds like it will be busy. I am quite nervous about uni now although I am really looking forward to it, I can't believe how quickly the summer has disappeared lol I thought I would have so much spare time and it just didn't work out that way at all.

Today  is the start of Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog's October challenge, Our theme this time is Anything Goes. The challenge is sponsored by Imagination Crafts and we have all used their fabulous products to make our projects.

Before I go on to my make I would like to point out that only entries using Imagination Crafts products will go in to the prize draw (although non IC makes can get top 3 spots).

For this challenge I have made a Christmas card (I had hoped to make all my christmas cards in the summer but that didn't happen lol) I have kept this one quite simple, I used the Snowflake Flurry Stencil and Diamond Sparkle Medium for the background and then used the same stencil and sparkle medium mixed with chalk mdf paint for the topper. I then used a greeting from the snowflake stamp set for the sentiment and one of the tiny snowflake stamps to just finish  off the edges on all of the pieces.

Imagination Crafts - September Challenge Mid Month Inspiration - Anything Goes

Morning lovelies I hope you are all well and having a nice start to the week.  Today is the mid month inspiration for Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog's August challenge, Our theme this time is Anything Goes it is sponsored by Imagination Crafts and we have all used their fabulous products to make our projects.

Before I go on to my make I would like to point out that only entries using Imagination Crafts products will go in to the prize draw (although non IC makes can get top 3 spots).

For this challenge I have made wall hanging but I decided to make this one more summery. I began by painting the MDF Frames and charms with the Jet MDF Paint and once it was dry I coated it with crackle medium. When the crackle medium was dry, I mixed a small amount of the Bronze Brocade Silkies with the Chalk MDF Paint to get a pale dusky pink colour and then painted that on top the crackle. Next I used Gold Shine Sparkle Medium with the gilding technique from Imagination Crafts MDF Instuction DVD and the Brocade stencil. I then stenciled Sparkle Gel on top through the Butterfly Flourish Stencil and once it was dry I coloured the butterflies with liquid metal gilding paint. Finally I used Black Stars Sparkle Medium to guild the charms and then attached them, added some black satin ribbon to hang it by and decorated it with a few flowers and leaves.
