Wicked Wednesday #229

Wicked Wednesday #229 has the theme

So without further ado here is my ATC - I used scraps from my worktable for the background, some orange ribbon and an owl embellishment as well as the image, coloured with Promarkers.

The image is a freebie from Jessica Lynn as part of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
- I will submit this ATC there too...

Happy Crafting!

New Release at Imagine That Digistamps

Today I have made something using two
newly released collections at Imagine That digistamps

Tags and Labels and Sweet Mice Tags and Labels

My Mum makes a delicious cherry cake - 
I thought a slice of this would make a lovely Birthday treat!

So my make is a treat box with matching tag:

To start off with I scored and cut a net from a piece of green A4 card.

I then added a cherry DP from Baking Chloe to decorate the outside.

Next I added the Birthday Wishes tag from Sweet Mice -
 printed, cut out with a nesting die
 and then with 'mowed lawn' distress ink around the edges.
I then added ribbon to the two sides.
I added this to the box with dimensional tape.

I then made a matching tag using more of the cherry paper (back to back), also cut with the nesting die I used on the box. I printed out two tags from the outline set and die cut them with a smaller nesting die. I stuck these on and added ribbon and a few heart gems.

Finally I put the cake in the box and added the tag...

Remember there is still just a little time to enter the current
 Imagine That Creative Playground challenge...

Zombie Walker

Sal (SLSLines)has drawn lots of super images for September.
I have decided to use three of them on ATCs and this post shows you the third...

This image is Zombie Walker.

I coloured it with Promarkers and cut it out.
 I then added it to an ATC to go in my Autumnal/Spidery Mini Journal.

This is the final post regarding my mini-journal so here's a picture with a glimpse of it all!
Just about to start my next one!!

LOC Challenge #149

Challenge #149 starts today at LOC  "Bones"

Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine

 I have used McNutty - Briar Whimsies coloured with Promarkers, cut out and placed on an ATC. (Following a LOC theme rather than 'Bones'...)

The background is black card - then a snippet from my scraps followed by several diecut leaves and acorns.
These dies are from Craftstash and are called
You might remember I used them in a couple of videos?
The paper I cut the dies from was some 'wrinkle free distress'
 which was left over on my craft table.
. I then used the dies as stencils to add some brown markings, and then distressed the pieces around the edges with 'scattered twigs' and 'mowed lawn'.

I then added the image.


I will add this to Wicked Wednesday #228

 Looking forward to seeing your makes in the LOC challenge!

Another Christmas card

It seems really weird to be making a Christmas card
 when the sun is streaming through the window! 

In fact it makes it very hard to see my computer screen...

Anyway this snippet of DP has been lying about my work table for a while - and an idea has been going round in my head so...

The idea was to cut a few rectangles of DP, mount them on to a contrasting card and then arrange them on a card blank. This forms the background.

After that I just added a die cut shape, a stamped banner and a few wooden embellishments.

I will link this to

Opposite Twins

Sal has drawn lots of super images for September.
I have decided to use three of them on ATCs and this post shows you the second...

This image is 'Opposite Twins'.

I coloured it with Promarkers and cut it out, splitting the image in two to make two ATCs.
These have gone into my Autumnal/Spidery Mini Journal.
The backgrounds are mopped up distress inks...the web is an SU stamp and the spider from Viva Las Vegas.

Hope to see your makes in the next challenge starting on the 20th!

Another video for you to watch!

Do you want to see how I made this card?

Well take a look at this video

 It is
 Blossom Vine Die with Wrinkle Free Distress

It features the following die:
 Blossom Vine Die

Although I made this card some time ago,
 I have been waiting for the video to be published before blogging about it -
 and that was today!
It involves 'wrinkle free distress' on both canvas and card, distressing with 'mowed lawn' distress ink, die cutting, stamping the sentiment.
I will link this card to More Mixed Media September Challenge

Hope you will take a look!

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

The current Challenge (#72) is "Things that Fly"...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:
Krazy Kritter Penguin

Penguins are one of my favourite creatures - so I couldn't resist using this image. I know they are flightless birds - but they certainly 'fly' into and through the water!!

I decided to make another pocket letter comprizing 9 ATCs - so first I printed the image 9 times and coloured them with Promarkers.

I made bases with black card matted with some colourful felty paper and added the fussy cut images.
I then added tiny googly eyes.

I then put the ATCs in a clear display sleeve.

Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #72...

Happy Crafting!
