Halloween or Cats

Hello, 
Hope you are all well. 
I have the dreaded lurgy that's been going round.. lucky me...

Anyways, we have a brand new challenge over at My Time To Craft 
 - Link is HERE

This fortnights challenge is " Halloween or Cats "

I went with both. So here's what I've got..

 Absolutely love this image from Simply B stamps. 
She is super cute for a witch. 
The papers are a download from Etsy. I really wanted worded backing paper and these are perfect! 
The witch has been coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens. 

Hope to see you all playing along at the blog. 
See you!

Baby Shower

Good Morning
Hope you're ready for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft
 - Link is HERE
This fortnights challenge is "Die cuts only"
Get the use out of those dies!
  I've used a onesie die that I think is from The Greeting Farm. 
I must say, I do love this die. The possibilities are endless with it. 
The card itself needed to me neutral hence the mint green, lemon, white and grey. 
The card blank itself is also embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder. 

Hope you enjoy the challenge

Under The Sea

Good Morning

Hope you're ready for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft
 - Link is HERE

This fortnights challenge is "Under The Sea"
Now, I automatically thought of the Little Mermaid but then remembered I've had some images for ages that I've never used. Perfect for this challenge! 😊


The background is printed bubble paper which has a layer of acetate over it. There is a frame all around the card too to add some depth. I've added the kraft card over the top of the frame to look like sand.
All the sea creatures are cut out and coloured using spectrum noir pens.
The images are by Drawn By Krista - Link is HERE
And they are called Baby Sea Creatures.

Hope you enjoy the challenge
Remember to follow the rule

Party Girl

Grrrrr... Scheduled this post and it doesn't post, so here I am... better late then never 😂

So.... Hello! 👋👋
It's been a while.... life sometimes just throws a wobbly at you and you end up AWOL. 
But I'm back and here to show my DT card for My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
The challenge for this fortnight is " Krafty" So use kraft card on your project. 
I've gone for an image by All Dressed Up which is printed onto kraft card and coloured with Marco Rafine Pencils. 
First try with these again, I'm getting better..... I think 🙈 


Image used is part of the  "Party Season" - Link is HERE
The kraft card I cut on the curve and added it to the striped and spotty paper. 
Added a few flowers, twirly things, a trim and a sentiment to finish the card off. 

I'm pretty pleased with it. Need a bit more practise with the pencils tho! 😉 
Enjoy the challenge and please remeber to follow the rules..

Bright and Colourful 

For this challenge we are sponsored by Oddball Art Co. - Link is HERE 
I got the use the super awesome image Tiny Kawaii Baby Dragon - Link is HERE 

I've added no sentiment to this card purely because it will probably be my Auntie's birthday card. 
She loves Dragons!

Tom

 Good Morning!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is 
Male  

Here’s what I’ve come up with :)

So, there's a bit of a story behind this card and why it's so small! 
Tom, is 21. Now, Tom sits infront of me down at Villa Park. 
I see Tom most Saturday's so I wanted to do him a card. Not everyday you turn 21 right...
The reason why the card is so small... I needed it to fit in a pocket! 
I was seeing him down Villa Park so it figured, small card and a pocket. 
The card itself is 10.5cm by 7.4cm
I did try and find claret and blue paper but I was runnign out of time lol.

Remember to follow the rules and enjoy the challenge.
We look forward to seeing your creations.

Retro Selfie

 Good Morning!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is 
 
Sequins and/or Buttons

Here’s what I’ve come up with :)


I have used an image by Kenny K called Retro Selfie - Link is HERE
I've coloured the image using Spectrum Noir Pens.
I decided to use sequins on this project beens I use buttons a LOT! I also decided to do a shaker card which I haven't made in ages. It was really fun! 
The shaker surround, I cut out to look like a poloroid photo. Pretty cool eh?!
I’ve added extra detail to the card as well by adding a die cut "hello" and a navy bow.

Here's a few more pics....

One For the Girls

Good Morning! 
Welcome to a new challenge over at Crafting When We Can - Link is HERE 

This fortnights challenge is 

"One For The Girls" 

We have a super awesome sponsor for this challenge,  Doodle Digistamps - Link is HERE
I've been lucky enough to use the image Bea and Tea - Link is HERE  
Rather than using the images on one card, I decided to make two! 
Here's what I've come up with....

 I went with a CAS look for these cards as I love the images, I wanted them to stand out more. 
I think I've achieved that! 

Both girls have been coloured in using Spectrum Noir Pens. 
I am going to post the colours used as sometimes trying to the find the right combinations is hard! 
The Sentiments are both printed onto the cardstock as well. 
I've added the die-cut borders to the tops and stickles and pearls for extra details. 

Here's a better look at the cards with the pen combos underneath...

Skin : FS3, FS1, FS2 | Hair : GB7, EB3, OR2, OR1 
Hat & Dress Blue : TB9, TB8, TB4 | Bow & Dress White : BGR3, BGR2, BGR1.

 Skin : FS3, FS1, FS2 | Hair : EB2, EB1, TN1
Glasses & Pants : DR7, DR6, DR5 | Top : IB3, IB2, IB1.

 There we have it... Two cute little CAS cards. 
We hope you enjoy the challenge... PLEASE REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE RULES! 

Enjoy...

Jasmine Texting

 Hello! 
It's been a while since I've played along with any challenges but thought I'd enter a few. 

You know when you have that card to make for a difficult teenager that's never off their phone... 
Well, there's a perfect image for this!

It's by Lili of the Valley and is called Jasmine Phone - Link is HERE
The papers I've used are a download from Etsy from HuckleberryHearts - Link is HERE


Wanted to make the card girly as well as bright and bold. All three papers are out of the download paper pack. I love how they complement each other. 
The image I've coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens. The paperclips are from IKEA. I love them! I love how they add more detail to the card. The three roses are made out of foam. And I've also added spiral staimen. These I've been looking for for like forever! I finally found them!! YAY! 
I will be selling these from my Etsy shop once I've listed them if anyone is interested. 

Here's a few close ups of the details and a shot that shows layers....



 Thanks for popping by. 
I hope you like my creation :) 

I'm entering the following challenges with my creation:

No DP! - My Time To Craft

 Good Morning!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is 

No DP's! ( No Designer Papers)

Here’s what I’ve come up with :)




I have used an image by Make It Crafty called Roxi and it’s been coloured in using Promakers and Spectrum Noir pens. I've also used Spectrum Noir refills to make my background. 
I didn't want to add embossing and wondered if it would work. I got a tiny amount on the end of the pipet and just splattered it over the card. It's subtle but I like it.
I’ve added extra detail to the card by using a wooden saying "Happy" and a purple bow.
 

Remember to follow the rules and enjoy the challenge.
We look forward to seeing your creations.

Super excited today as I get to see my best friend and my Godson, which ironically, what I'm about to show you today is for him! 

So a new challenge over at Crafting When We Can - Link is HERE 
And this fortnight's challenge is Animals. 
Brilliant! As I've been waiting to show this!! 

So, I wanted to make someathing for my Godson and remembered his room is all about animals. 
This is what happened....


There's going to be a few pics!! 
Everything on this jungle mobile apart from the "TED" has been cut out by hand. 
"TED" is die cut. It's a good job dies work with felt too! 
So, everything is made out or felt and handstitched together. 
I had to get some buttons in there somewhere! 

Here's some more pics....


I soooooo loved making these, I'll probably end up making another one as well. 

I hope you enjoy the challenge and please please please... follow the rules. 

Enjoy!

Another Saturday and time for another challenge over at My Time To Craft - Link is HERE
This fortnight's challenge is a sketch! By meeeee..... :) 
 Here's the sketch:
 
I've rotated mine to add an extra way of interpretting the sketch.
Here's what I've made : 
 
I have used an image by Jade Dragonne called Headphones and it’s been coloured in using Sharpie pens and a white gel pen.
I’ve added extra detail to the card by using pearls and a wooden word which reads crazy.
 

Remember to follow the rules and enjoy the challenge.
We look forward to seeing your creations.
