The Sketchy Challenges #90 My Sketches Take Your Pick Card or Pocket Letter

Hi Crafty Bloggers

It's time for a super new challenge at 

It's my turn and I have chosen to make two sketches for inspiration where you can TAKE YOUR PICK to make a CARD  or a POCKET LETTER 



There is so much inspiration on the blog and all the details of how to enter and the prize is all over on the blog so why not check it out !!

I chose to make a pocket letter . I bought the sleeve from amazon and used Bo Bunny Heritage design papers and co- coordinating embellishments. I have also included their buttons and assortment of ribbon and twine from my stash.


I have filled the pockets by making each one individually using my scorpal and fiskers trimmer . 
I have coloured Chic Fringe Tilda with distress ink mediums and used a die -namics stitched oval to matt her onto the design paper which I embossed with white powder with a Tim Holtz Papillion stamp.


I have used lots of dies in the pockets and cut outs from the Bo Bunny collection . This one has the doohickey bride bow die finished with heritage brad and underneath I altered some hobby house charms by daubing them lightly with gesso and then daubing them with alcohol ink and lastly added some gold frantage and tied them with thread.



I have used a Tim Holtz clip here and memo pin and an altered heart pin and pearl pin from LLC.


A Picture of the back 


Other dies used are spellbinders foil foliage,,,, doohickey feathers ..doohickey fern tag . I also made two small booklets with paper inside and also a fringed bag with WOC mini roses filled with tiny brads .


Each pocket has surprises for the recipient with die cuts brads charms etc..They are so much fun to receive and when swapped with someone you can keep yours in a folder it's also great inspiration when you receive other crafters creations !

Boho Chic & Dreamcatching

Hi Crafty Bloggers 

Having a lovely week off work and getting some lovely crafty time !! just in time for playing with the new BOHO CHIC stamps from Magnolia which I
 pre- ordered from SirStampalot !! 

I was inspired to use several stamps in my card today !!


I have used Hoppie Tilda I just loved colouring her with the boho heart & leaf ans Boho Lace & Love & Boho door stamps. I coloured the stamped images with a mix of distress reinkers ..pads and markers and some liquid pearls .



I have used beautiful background papers by Pion for the matting and die cutting the colours are stunning. I have also used Maja design for the patterned papers all from Live & Love Crafts.


I made a pelmet to hang the dream catchers from !!



The dies used are spellbinders dream catcher and Magnolia doohickey feathers and lastly Sue Wilson camellias. The tassle I made from the papers by folding over and cutting with my scissors and then layered them over each other and finished with some LLC lace and lilac pearl string !! I have also frantaged everything with gold from stampendous at LLC and finished with some flatback pearls from there too !!


I decorated the inside too with more of these lovely papers and the Magnolia doohickey fern tag.


I had so much fun making this !!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge which inspired me in the first place with this gorgeous inspiration collage I loved the wall above the bed and it inspired me to use the dreamcatchers !!
