Oddball Art Stamps

This week the image is CCC45 Geeky Ghouls - and I had real fun with it!!

Not only did I use the image, I used papers from Oddball Art Designs too...

I made a card and a set of ATCs...

I added a little colour with Copics, googly eyes, a button and some glossy accents.

The card is another bi-fold.

Happy Crafting!

Let's celebrate your Birthday...

This is my second card for Outlawz Challenges 8th Birthday!!

I was delighted to receive a free pack of papers from We are 3 Digi Shop for entering the Outlawz Blog Hop and Challenge yesterday... I decided to make a card using two of these papers.

I have made a bifold card using a 5.25 inch strip from a grey 12 by 12 page from a 'Neutrals' paper pack. I folded this at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches and sliced off the two top corners to make the fold as shown.
I then added sections of the papers to each side.

I then added my image and sentiment - from Vera Lane's Unicorn and Pegasus Set, coloured with Copics.

I added a rosette and some glittery buttons.

I will link this to the Outlawz Birthday Challenge

Let's celebrate your Birthday!!

So many Birthdays this month!
But the one I am celebrating today is Outlawz Challenges 8th!!

I have made a twisted easel card -
 find details of how to construct a twisted easel card in my video below.

I made my card base using a 12 by 12 page from The Works paper pack
 'Wonderful Sweetness'.
I used a 6 inch strip to make a normal square card blank.
 I cut another 6 by 6 square to form the easel.

I used another paper from the paper pack to form the next layers behind the flamingo paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles

I used the same paper behind the pre-coloured image and the sentiment - both from 
Imagine That Digistamps

Flamingo Birthday

Finally I added the flamingo embellishment.

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 333 Holiday

Here's my make for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

Do pop over and see my teamies' makes!!

I was dreaming of a holiday in the sunshine...

1. Basically I used the Sizzix Thinlits Pineapple Fold-a-Long die set and papers from a Summer Fruits paper pad from the Works.
2. I stamped the sentiment on yellow and mounted it on a darker yellow. I attached this to the yellow oval which clips into the middle pineapple. The sentiment is a Little Claire stamp.
3. The card folds flat  with the two outside pineapple halves sitting together.

Hope to see your make in the Challenge!!

Happy Crafting!
