Diecut Collaboration!

So when i saw that Hels over @ the Sunday Stamper had the theme 'Diecuts' i was straight on the case..
Get it case.. vagabond!
I've a few birthdays coming up so decided to make cards.
I also decided that i was only going to use scraps,
You know how it is, you start something, cut this.. pull that out.. stamp this.. and don't use half of what you thought you would so it gets shoved in the 'I'll use that later' pile.. only for it to sit there forever and a day..
Well today it was their day!
Card one.. Which is also my entry for this weeks Simon Says Stamp'n'Show
'WORD' challenge, my word being Wish.
A real mish mash of elements.. bit of alcohol inked card, bit of embossed metal, Stampers Anonymous TH image, oh and of course said diecuts!
Card two...
Again an assortment, but mainly diecuts apart from the image which is Pucinni's Muse by Stampington, a little metal fancy corner and stamped dragonfly on acetate.
And finally some tattered florals i had cut from jean and lace turned into..

A little hair accessory.
***
Right i'm off for now to get inky maybe, if the old mojo is up to it..
It has been a bit hit and miss lately.. I find i work better when i have company, even if it is only via the computer but there isn't always someone around.
So how do you craft? Are you better on your own or do you like having someone to bounce ideas off and have a bit of a banter with?
Do you chat to friends like i do on skype or are you happy locked in a room on your own with your stash???

Stay Inky

Your cards are stunning Minxy - fabulous collages. It's great when you can use left over bits to great effect. Love the jeans and lace flower too!

It's always just little ole me in my craft room - but I get all the inspiration I need from visiting blogs like yours!

Your cards are all brilliant. I love the idea of using up scraps before they they take over your space.lol Donna

Hello Minxy! Love your WISH project. I love all of them...but WISH is the one you entered into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge! You've really got lots of elements and technique going on with WISH. Very neat piece! Thanks for joining us on the challenge! Great job!

Fab couple of scrappy cards Nicky. Great ways to use up those odd bits and bobs.

I prefer to craft on my own. Only, mainly due to the limited space I have. I do go round to my mate Maz's quite often though but she has a massive dedicated craft room and has more stash than the local shop - lol!!!!

sasa said...

Thanks for joining the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!
