Addicted to Stamps and More #288 - Holiday


Here's my card for the Holiday Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
Do pop over and have a look at the fabulous inspiration...





A simple Christmas card to add to my collection!
I started with a 4 by 4 square card blank matted with blue card then layered with a paper from Imagine That! Digistamps




I then used more blue card to die cut the snowflakes (a Paper Smooshies die) and black sparkly card to die cut Let It Snow (a die from Craftstash)


Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Ike's World Challenges #107


Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#107) is Anything Goes with the Optional Twist a Photo Inspiration



and this is my midway post...


If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


Spring




You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!



I have made a card this month - Spring is Sprung:



I used a pre-coloured card base with Ike's Flower Square
and Ike's freebie Shelf Bunny.
These were combined in Serif Craft Artist 2, printed, cut out and colour added with Promarkers. Finally I put on googly eyes...
The scribbled sentiment is added on a spring.




I used the same floral image last year with some of Ike's Greek images:
that time the card sprang open!!



Hope you will pop over to Ike's World Challenges and see the DT's inspiration for the current challenge - and join in!

Find all the details on the blog but basically it is to use these two lovely sets entitled Girlz World...
Buy one get one free...




I just used Serif Craft Artist 2 and combined various papers and elements with some of my photos:

This celebrates the Chinese New Year of The Dog - we had a family banquet!


The year of the dog motif came from the internet and Lion Brand Yarn.

My second layout features photos taken at Domaine Chandon in Victoria, Australia - my daughter and I were enjoying drinking the bubbles...

Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge - April - Butterfly





Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Hope you will pop over to the Challenge
 and see the fabulous makes from all the DT!

Here are my ATCs:


Each one starts on a black background - card from my scraps.
The yellow layers are then sections of a background I have made using Versamark through Butterfly stencils. I embossed these with an opaque embossing powder.
I then painted over spritzed yellow Brusho, wiping the moisture off the emboss resist.


I added butterfly stickers to the first three, and some chipboard embellishments that I had dipped in the spritzed Brusho.




On the final two I added embroidered butterflies, from the Naiff Souk in Dubai.




Hope you will join in this ATC Challenge!!



Happy Crafting!
