Get Creative November 5th Card Challenge and October Winner and Top Five

Hello lovely ladies this is a bit of a long post so if you don’t have a cuppa in your hand I suggest you go and get one !!!  Welcome to another challenge over at Get Creative but before I go any further I would just like to thank everyone that took part in our month-long card celebration in October. Each DT member and there are thirteen of us set our own challenge and chose one winner who will receive a prize offered by us. The response was amazing,  so many entries and I would just like to thank each and every one of you who took part in my CAS challenge. I was totally blown away by the quantity and quality of your creations, believe you me it was soooooo difficult to choose just one winner but rules are rules and my winner was Susan Martin with this gorgeous card

Susan your gift is on its way too you !

Here in no particular order are few cards that I really liked but where just pipped to the post

Back to Get Creative HQ and time for the November 5th card challenge and our lovely leader Irini is asking us to use a stamp we have never used before on our cards !!!! so much choice , I think I have more unused than used ! it took me days to decide but after much deliberating I finally chose this beauty by Darkroomdoor.

To be honest I wish I had chosen something simpler as I decided to use my copics and  we all know how much of a novice I am with them. I stamped the image at least a dozen times and then tried various colour combinations , all of them naff and destined for the bin. This was the best of a bad bunch so you can imagine what the others where like !!! After I finished colouring with the copics I gently added pink Pan Pastels to the image to soften the colours a little ( yes these colours are softened  !!)

Please pop over to Get Creative to see which stamps my fellow team members had languishing away untouched in their crafty stash and why not join in.

We have been sponsored by the gorgeous Natasha  who is offering this wonderful prize, you have until the 29th of the month to upload your card .

Right am off for a cuppa am exhausted don’t know about you !!!

Take care

  1. Congratulations to Susan on that fabulous winning card! I loved this challenge Marie and am thrilled to bits to get a mention. Your card for the new challenge is beautiful and the image works brilliantly with these vibrant colours. I always love images stamped onto bookprint and coloured and yours really pop.

  10. Hiya Marie, I love your choice for the winning card – it’s very unique, and the others are equally as gorgeous. I would’ve found this so difficult to choose!

    Your stashed away stamp looks fabulous with those beautiful bright colours, and this definitely has your trademark style. Like you, I have soooo many stamps I haven’t used yet, so I must dig them out!

    Can you believe I didn’t end up at Casualty using screws, lol???
