I have glittered the flowers on the imge and added tiny beads to some of the other flowers.

CCM 148 Make It Sparkle

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Make it Sparkle.

Make It Sparkle FF

I thought it was the perfect challenge for my first Christmas Card of 2015. My image is called Silver Fairy by Wee Stamps, and I coloured her with copics, and then glittered her wings with glamour dust. I have glamour dusted my mats and the sentiment diecut as well.

The papers are Trimcraft’s First Edition Silent Night paper pad which I am pretty sure I have had for over two years now! I am determined not to buy any more papers for Christmas until I have used up the ones I already have…… that should take me a good few years!

My diecuts are ‘Tis The Season’ Penny Black… the Snowflake with the tree type points is from Marianne and the 7 pointed one is from Joy Crafts.

ABC R Recipe

Our challenge today at ABC is Tic, Tac, Toe challenge, and we are sponsored by All Dressed Up.

Tic Tac Toe-001

I went down the centre line of the board for my card.

R Recipe

My image, from All Dressed Up is called ‘A Cuddle Makes It All Better’ and does come with a sentiment as part of the image saying exactly that, but before I printed the image I deleted the sentiment.

I have coloured her in with copics. My papers are from a magazine freebie from Wild Rose Studios called Bluebell, although I only had a limited set of papers in my freebie along with some decoupage. My diecuts are all Sue Wilson dies. The corner die is from the Dainty Lace Edger set, and the one surrounding the image is the Petite Arched Adornments die. The flower comes from my stash and I removed the centre, added a large blob of glue and then sprinkled with nail art micro beads which I got from Poundland!

DV 115 Autumnal Colours

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is the colours of Autumn. We are sponsored by Robyn’s Fetish and I have used their cute scarecrow image in my project.

115 Autumn Colours

I went for the often fiery red and orange hues of autumn that you see in the hedgerows and trees as the leaves start to turn, and in some of the harvest fruits, and made a background with those hues from brushos on watercolour card.

My scarecrow was coloured with copics, and his white stitching added with a Sharpie paint marker.  The quote I found online, and the die, which I sort of hoped looked a little like a corn field at harvest time although I went a bit ott with the colour, is from Sheena Douglass’ perfect partners range.

I am entering this into:-

AAA – #48 Autumn Colours
Crafting For All Seasons – Tic, Tac, Toe (Centre line top to bottom, die cuts, digi image, sentiment)

CCM 147 Floral Embellishments

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers today is Flower Embellishments. Whilst we are happy to see floral images on your creations, these alone do not count. You need to add either pre-made, home made or diecut flowers to your project to qualify.

147 Flower Embellishments

I started with making my own card blank from Centura Pearl Snow White card using a Go Kreate die. I also cut a smaller mat which I embossed.

The flowers themselves are stamped with Sheena Douglass’ Anenome stamps on a dotty patterned pearlised paper and then coloured with distress stains, Peacock Feathers for the Turquoise One. Picked Raspberry for the Pink One and Dusty Concord the lilac one. Have to say can’t wait to get my hands on Wilted Violet when it finally gets dispatched. I shaped them and having stuck them together added a mixture of tiny beads and Stampendous glitters. The tiny beads are in fact nail art from Poundland. I bought every pack they had in the shop!

The sentiment was printed from my pc with the addition of a Penny Black diecut word.

The mat between the embossed layer and the card back was cut from the same paper I had stamped onto and coloured with a more watered down version of Peacock Feathers to tone in. As was the ‘friends’ diecut.

I am entering this into:-

Card and Scrap – #102 Use Flowers
Card Mania – #72 Pastel Colours
CCC Digi Creations – #22 Include a Sentiment
CMD – #25 Flower Power

ABC Q for Queen of Hearts

Our challenge today is Q for Queen of Hearts and we are sponsored by Polkadoodles. The team were lucky enough to get some Polkadoodles images to use and I chose Odella Heart.

Q for Queen of Hearts

I coloured her in with copics, and then dotted a sharpie paint marker in her hair, and on the heart I drew some swirls. I also added wink of stella to the heart and to the blue dots on the ends of some of her hair.

The diecuts sentiments are all from Simon Says Stamp, and were cut from holographic metallic adhesive film, and the heart is from Memory Box, heart gems from my stash.
