I made an ATC...


I printed the image, coloured it with Zig real brush pens and cut it out.
I started the ATC with a brown card matted with pink.
I then added a rose and two leaves, die cut from scraps using an Altenew layered rose die set (magazine freebie)
I added the image on top and a few gems.

HIMCR #350 - Any Holiday!



Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my card for HIMCR #350 - Any Holiday!
I made it as a Birthday card for a little child.


The sponsor is My Besties!



The giveaway is 3 My Besties images - winner's choice!

I have used this cute little pirate - printed, coloured with a variety of markers and die cut with an oval nesting die.
I used a paper, AHOY and a 'wave' from Imagine That Digistamps and combined them all together using another oval die and a stitched square die. I then added this to a white card base.


Hope you will join the Challenge!

To all my ATC making friends!!


I know many of you make ATCs - but not many of you have come across the

This month the theme is Butterfly and there are just a couple of days to go -
but maybe you'll have a little time over the weekend to enter...


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!

This was my first set of ATCs for this month:


I made a set of 5 - but just one ATC is sufficient - today I have made this one:


I started with a purple card matted with a Brusho background.
I then added the die cut - this is a Crafters Companion die - Circle 3D Butterfly (Signature Collection by Sara Davies) - a win some time ago from Mrs A and the Butterfly Challenge.
I used a purple sparkly card to cut this die and added some of the pieces that were cut out to the top corner.

  
Because of the sparkle it was rather difficult to photograph but I hope you get the idea!


Hope you will join in this ATC Challenge!!


Happy Crafting!

Butterfly Challenge #99

Did you see my Saturday post illustrating this card?


The scroll on here was die cut with the die I recently won in the Butterfly Challenge.
Thank you Mrs A!

I was trying to get an entry for Butterfly Challenge #99 finished in time
 but unfortunately I missed the 8pm deadline!
I did wonder why it suddenly said 2 weeks though...

However it seems I am lucky as the challenge has been extended.
SO... I will still share it...

This was the wheel:


I started with a white card base matted with dark salmon card - I took my card pack and matched a piece with the computer screen!
I then had a layer of denim - this time I matched a piece with my jeans. On this layer I embossed some butterflies with 'Midnight Teal' embossing powder, by first adding Versamark through a stencil, shaking on the powder and heat setting it.




I then found a digi image on my computer - butterfly shoe printable - not sure where it came from I am afraid. I printed this twice colouring the images with a variety of markers again trying to match the 'dirt' and 'dark salmon' colours and adding teal.
I added the first layer complete on dimensional tape - I added a square of the second piece cut out with a stitched die, again on dimensional tape.


I printed the sentiment on the computer, cut it out with a stitched die and addded it on more dimensional tape.


That was all sections of the wheel - I will link this to Butterfly Challenge #99.
Looking forward to #100!! Happy Crafting!

Hiding in my Craft Room #349 - Cutesy!

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my card for HIMCR #349 - Cutesy!



The sponsor is Oddball Art!

Oddball Art Stamps

The giveaway is 2 images to Oddball Art!

I have used Bubba Baboon

The card my husband gave me for our anniversary was this:


So I was thinking of a way to respond... I came up with the following Birthday card:



I started with a white card matted with a Tim Holtz paper - I used another TH paper on which to print the image, I cut it out and added some colour with Promarker and Wink of Stella. The scroll is a die cut that I won from Mrs A on a recent Butterfly challenge.
I printed the sentiment on the computer and cut it out with a stitched die.


Hope you will join the Challenge!

LeighSB Designs is ONE




I have just come back from Australia so not had a lot of time for crafting 
but I did want to join in with 

It is now a year since Leigh set up her shop and you will have seen me use many of her fabulous designs in that time.

There is still a day to enter the competition to make a Birthday card using the freebie on the link.
Here's my card:


I started with a yellow card base and matted it with a paper from my stash.

I printed the image on white and on another paper from my stash.
I cut out the numerals from the paper and stuck them in place. I cut out the cupcake and coloured it with Zig real brush pens and Winks of Stella. Not sure if you can see the glitter on the icing...


Hope you will try and enter the challenge...


Happy Crafting and Happy Birthday Leigh!


Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Challenge # 382 - Add a house


a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Add a house...'

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!

Here is my card:





I have just been on holiday to Australia to see my family - my three sons all live in Victoria.
Anyway I usually do some crafting with my granddaughters who live near Paynesville.

This time my daughter was also here so we all had a go making cards, with limited resources,
 inspired by the mosaics on the Paynesville waterfront, and also cards that my daughter sent me from Cards from Africa.



Here we are, crafting!!








Basically we just had Kraft card bases, a pack of different coloured card, letter stickers and some washi tape.

My card had a strip of washi across the bottom and then houses made of scraps of card.
I folded an origami star and added the word with the stickers.


I also needed a birthday card for a little girl here so here is my version of a pelican...



I intended adding this to Pixie's Snippets Challenge 324 but have only just realised I didn't add the link - no stamp or die, just snippets!

I hope you will join the
