Crafting When We Can Challenges 128 - Use your favourite medium ((pens, pencils, paint etc)

Over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have the lovely Sarah from

For my project I chose Spring Rain I wanted to use bright colours to counteract the grey skies and storms we've had this week.  My favourite medium is my Spectrum Noir pens, I also used my fiskar cutter, which I use everytime I craft and my Tonic dies and punches.  All the paper and card are from my stash and because I hate to waste papers I've gutted the card you can't see and now have loads of gold and red name dies (First Edition dies from Hobbycraft Female and Male titles Mum, Dad, Sister etc)  The flowers are various punches and the leaves were cut on the scan'n'cut.
Looks better in person.  Photo makes it look washed out and flat

Hop over to CWWCC and leave us your projects using your favourite medium.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #127 - Happy Birthday

It's birthday time over at Crafting When We Can Challenges and was having probs with my blogger and totally forgot to post my card. So here it is (you have until next Saturday UK time to link you birthday creation).

This week we have the wonderful Cheri Shull of
Prize - choice of
1. choose any 2 digi's (value $5)
2. choose current color club (value $10)
Theme: Happy Birthday

To start with I created a frame of cupcakes to go around my image using the SVG function in CraftArtist and the Scan'n'Cut to cut the file. I then added an offset to mat the cupcakes using Create and Craft glitter card. The background papers are from a CWVC paper pad. The image and cupcakes were coloured using Spectrum noir pens. The image is It's my birthday. The sentiment is one from the scan'n'cut on board library.

Hop over to CWWCC and show us your 'Happy Birthday' projects.  It can be any form of project and as long as you follow the rules you will be in with a chance of winning the prize.
