Christmas Cardinal

Time to make another Christmas Card for your stash and enter our Challenge over at Season's Greetings!



As it suggests, it is optional to use the twist, which this Challenge is using the Picture shown for inspiration. 
Your call, after all it is Anything Goes with any imagine or stamp in your stash.
The only thing you have to remember is that it does have to be a Christmas Project.

Here is my card I made to inspire you:


As you can see, just take out of the picture what you like and go with that!

I used a digital stamp called Christmas Cardinal from Miss Daisy Stamps and coloured up with my Copic Markers. I did add some clear Wink Of Stella to the snow.
The Sentiment is from the Snow Mice set from Imagine That! DigiStamp.

I used the retired Square Dies and Banner Dies from Stampin Up.
The 2 lots of Velum I used are also retired and from Stampin Up, as are the candy dots!

Yep, use what you have, have some fun just mixing and matching, you will be surprised!

Ok, so now you have until the 8th of April to submit your entry here!

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Happy Easter Wonderland

Goodness, can you believe it's almost Easter already!!!

Here's a card I made using the I'm Late image from Ericraft Stamps.


Love that it's an image you would not normally put on an Easter card, but works so well.

So here's a first for me - I bought and used Derwent Watercolour pencils !!!!!!
Have a lot to learn with them but am pretty happy with my first attempt.

The sentiments are both from Jaded Blossom's Greetings From Wonderland stamp set.
I also used Jaded Blossom's Card Mat Dies, Stitched Oval Dies and Spring Dies.
Patterned Papers are from my stash.

Bugaboo StampsStar Stampz

I got the chance to use Balloons and Ice cream by Star Stampz.

Ok, so here I first made her into a Tag for a gift bag and took a photo.


And I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I got looking at it, ok, admiring my handiwork and thought, you know what, this would look great on a card!

So here she is on a card front!


And I'll let you in on another secret to the workings of my mind - when I was colouring this, I was going to cut it out with an oval die and mount on coloured pp on a card.....yep, that did not happen! and that my friends is how my fickle mind plays with me......xx

Ok, so here's what I used - LOL, I think by now you all now I coloured her up with my Copic Markers....yep!
And then of course there are my Jaded Blossom dies - Luggage Tag Die, Coffee Dies and Label Dies.....yep!
And the 'love" is from La La Land Crafts Love Owl Tag Dies - yes, have started using this one a fair bit.
The Butterfly Border die is off ebay.

Flip Flop Memories

Here's my next Guest Designer project for Imagine That Digistamp Creative Playground Blog.


This fortnight I have used Beach Floaty Girl with Beach Combing Digi Papers.


I used the last top paper to the right. It comes in a little colour as well.


I used one of my Spellbinders Dies and also my Jaded Blossom Coffee Dies and Stitched Rectangle Dies 1.

How funky looking is that digi paper! Just looking at it makes me want to be on an Island Holiday!

Remember to join in the Participation Challenge over at the Creative Playground Blog as everyone who uses an Imagine That Digistamp image gets the Featured Monthly set  Lamb with Cross for FREE.


I hope you liked my Guest Designer projects as this is my last one.
I have enjoyed creating with Kris's designs again and hopefully have inspired some of you to create with them too.
I can't wait to see the lovely new Guest Designers projects.

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Selfie Obesssion

Challenge time again over at SheepSki Designs Facebook Page.

This month I've used a new image called Selfie Obsession.


Yes, I created a journal page - or should I say I finished the second page!
That's the good thing about colouring both sides of your journal at the one time is that you then have a ready made layout just waiting for the perfect image.
And I must say, she is perfect!

I coloured her with Copic Markers and used new colour combos for her skin and hair - love it!

It's one of the two that comes with La-La Land Crafts Molli with Coffee digi image!


I have teamed her up with the Digi Papers by Lozzy called SE5 - this is from her pack named Sepia Embossing.

Isn't it just fabulous! LOL, I say that now after I retrieved her from the bin!
Yes, I had 3 OMG what have you done moments!!!!!
Anyhow, lets not go there as I think I recovered her pretty well.

Workout Goddess

Well here I am again with the Sassy image Workout Girl fro Kenny K stamps.

As I said yesterday in my post, I coloured her a second time in different colours, and added a different sentiment.


Coloured up with my Copic Markers.
The background paper is again by Digi Papers by Lozzy and is called MMQ from the Mixed Media set. LOVE this set of papers, which I was lucky enough to win from Lozzy but am putting to good use!
Also used Jaded Blossom's Coffee Dies and Sentiment from their Fitness Junkie stamp set.

It was so hard to pick which one to post for the Sponsor post yesterday as I love them both.
Let me know your favourite! and maybe I'll see your version in our Challenge Blog posting?
