Truly, Madly, Crafty Challenge 2 - New

It's going to be a long post today as I have 2 cards to show you. They have been made for our new Challenge blog at Truly, Madly, Crafty. It's our second challenge and the theme is NEW - so anything new goes - it could be a new baby, new house, new technique or stash - however you'd like to interpret it! The challenge lasts a whole month, so plenty of time to get those entries in, and the winner gets £5 to spend on anything from the Truly, Madly, Crafty shop.

For my first card I've made a new baby boy easel. The image is Bambino by Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers, then cut out and added to a Marianne Creatables Doily die cut. The dp is HOTP and some gingham I found in my stash. Other products used include a Martha Stewart punch,  Dovecraft sheer ribbon,  a corner flourish die, some monogram stamps, Stormy Sky Distress Ink, a shaped white card base by Hunkydory, and a pearl gem.

I'm entering this baby boy easel card into these challenges:

Stamp Something - September Digi Day Challenge
Marianne Design Divas Challenge 1 - Anything Goes using Marianne D products (doily die)
Crafty Creations Challenge 134 - dies and punches (use 3 or more)- (Martha Stewart punch, Marianne D 
die, corner flourish die)
Crafty Catz Challenge 98 - Monochromatic
Stamps R Us Challenge - Anything Goes

This is my second card for Challenge 2 at Truly, Madly, Crafty. I thought I would make a moving home card.

I started off by using Distress Inks on shiny white card, then stamped over it 3 times with the Home is where the Heart is rubber stamp by Stampin Bella with Stazon. I separated the 3 images, and mounted them onto black Coredinations card with a green core after I had distressed it. The sentiment came with the stamp, and I stamped the heart again onto the Coredinations and 3D'd it. The swirl was die cut with a Tim Holtz die on the same card and distressed. I added a green flower from Wild Orchid Crafts, and a bronze metal butterfly  I found in my stash with a couple of gems. All on Bazzill 6 x 6" green cardstock.

I'm entering my moving home card into these challenges:

Hooked on Craft Challenge 6 - things with wings (bronze metal butterfly charm)
KB Cute Monday Challenge 27 - include a butterfly (as above)
The Crafty Pad Challenge 136 - Distressing and Tearing (mats have been distressed and torn)
