Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - July Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday July challenge taking place right here on my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by today and hope you will join in this month too! There were lots of fabulous entries last month, always so nice to see many of you joining in so be sure to scroll down to the end to see who made the "top picks with a twist".

As always at Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday the theme is now.....................

Anything Goes,

and instead of a challenge theme there will be a "Top Pick Twist" but nobody knows what the twist will be (not even me) until the challenge closes as it will be inspired by YOUR creations. So do link up all your new or recently created projects for a chance to be featured. Remember, you may share anything crafty, handmade by you. It doesn't have to be a card.

And here is what I made:

The image is from the Penny Black set "U R The Gift", this time I colored with my Copic markers. I layered several die cuts on the top part of the card in coordinating colors. These were already previously cut out and from my box of extras. Then I used a script stamp from Just For Fun Rubberstamps (no longer in business I think) and added the die cut stars. The circle sentiment is from a retired set by Whimsy Stamps. Happy Birthday sentiment is part of a newer Colorado Craft Company set

I am sharing this card with the following challenges:

June Top Picks with a Twist:

As mentioned previously, there is now a Top Pick Twist when it comes to my selection of Top Picks. Nobody knows what the twist will be - not even me - until the end of the month as the twist will be totally inspired by YOUR creations. This means the top picks will all have something in common.

The twist from the June entries is......... Forms of Transportation.

Choosing just 3 wasn't easy as there were several fabulous creations showcasing Transportation, but I finally was able to narrow it down and here they are in the order of entry:

No. 25 Yvonne

No. 33 Mariann Scrap

No. 44 Maria

Congrats everyone, well deserved recognition! Your top pick logo is below. Feel free to post it to your own blogs if you like to :)

I will continue to pin the top picks to the dedicated Pinterest board, but will also include photo and link back to the original blogs/sites here. These will be removed at the start of the new challenge to stay in compliance with GDPR.

To join in this month's challenge please use the linky tool below. You have until Sunday, July 30th 11:59 CST to play along!

A few things to remember:
  • You may combine with any other challenges.
  • You may use any brand of stamps/digis/products (no company restriction).
  • Please try to limit your linked up cards to 3 entries per month - it's ok if you end up with more than 3.
  • Please do include a link back here to my blog in your blog post.
  • Backlinking to a recent post IS allowed.
  • Digital products are allowed and very welcome but the final piece has to be a physical handmade creation, not just digital

This card is super cute, I love that little mouse and the colouring is perfect. The way how you've played with the die cuts to create all those layers mis fantastic, I also like to keep the extras ones from my projects that I'm not going to use or those that don't have a perfect shape because you never know when you're going to need them.

And thanks for choosing my tag as one of the top 3. Also, congratulations to the other two top picks. Hugs, María.

This is so cute. I swear you have the best collection of Penny Black stamps. I wish I had started years ago and had access to some of the older PB collections. The new line of Postage Stamps is on my radar right now. One day!

I love the way you combine PB images to create a story/scene! Wonderful card! Thanks so much for sharing at PBSC:)
