Chalkboard Creations challenge.

It's Nat here bringing you this week's dare.

So this week I've challenged the design team and you to...

Ideally I would love it if you could try the heat embossing technique, but if you don't have the supplies there are plenty of fonts and printables out there that you could use to replicate the look.

Over the past few months I've been seeing a lot of beautiful pins on Pinterest showcasing various types of Chalkboard Artwork.

From gorgeous handwritten signage to amazing murals in homes and businesses...

A Cute Angle

Hello everyone! It's Friday! Hooray! Time for crafting and sharing some new inspirations with 

we want to see some sharp shapes. Geometry is all the rage in cardmaking so we would like to see geometric shapes in play as you
Make a cute angle

 its a play on words really - "a cute angle" is like "acute angle" get it? Or perhaps not... If you can make your acute angle cute then that would be fab too. However you interpret the dare we would love to see the results. 

I took inspiration from famous Dutch artist Piet Mondrian :

   his Abstract cubes and squares

... and my card :
My card look very simple, but in real is not! :0)
I haven't use die cut machine!
Yep! I cut all by hand.  

I took black American Craft cardstock. Cut out panel to fit the card front, then took ruler and pencil and started a real measuring work to have all my squares and rectangles in right balance.
Then came a hardest bit of work to cut out all geometric pieces very neatly!
I worked very slowly and sometimes didn't breath :0)

 Then I adhered colour parts from reverse of my delicate black construction and
finished with felt adhesive letters.

Everything is expressed through relationships. 
(Piet Mondrian) 

Have a fantastic artistic Friaday!
See you soon!

Used Material :

 White cardstock for the card base, American Crafts Brights and Earth tones, Making Memories felt alpha stickers, sharp craft nife and ruler.

Favourite Things

Good morning everyone! I want to share my card created for By The Cute And Girly Blog
 Favourite Things
challenge by talented Lora.
She asked us to create a card with our favourite things on like fav pattern paper, material, embellies, photo or colour combo.

I mixed couple of things together :0)
My fav colour combo, emblellie shape and material.

First I made white base card, then stamped card front to create pretty pattern. 

Adhere a panel of pattern paper on the bottom of the card. Round and ink the edges around.
Attach a lace and stamped 'Happy Birthday' sentiment.

Trace two heart shapes on the white cardstock paper, each one slightly bigger. Spray cream fabric with brown glimmer mist and leave it dry. Cut out vintage pattern fabric stripe and beige felt stripe using pinking scissors. Wrap smaller cardstock heart with dry fabric. Embellish with pattern fabric, beige felt and red pom pom trim. Add white felt flower with red button to finish. I've affixed my heart on card front with mounting pads to add some dimension. My last touch was aqua satin bow.

Have a beautiful day!
