Cute Christmas

Hi, we at Fantasty Stampers would like to see a Cute Christmas for your next challenge project. Please pop over to the challenge blog to check out what the Design Team have created.  I just love this design from LOTV, called Penguin Presents, it is such a fun stamp and a lovely one to sit and colour with Promarkers. It's on a round scalloped card, which I made into an easel card. Another Christmas card ready for my collection.  You have two weeks, so I hope to see you during my visits.

Time and Space

Well, I certainly jumped out of my comfort area with this week's challenge at My Time To Craft (MTTC). The challenge is Time and or Space. Please do pop over to the challenge blog to see the Design Team's inspiration . I decided to go for Space - The Last Frontier. I used a dark blue 8 inch square card. Scattered peel off stars over the page. I found via Pinterest a free Aliens print out page provided by Leone Betts, to whom I am so grateful. I coloured the digis with Promarkers. The planet began, many months ago, in one of my inky, messy sessions, when the pages are spritzed, splattered and generally messed about, to be dried and put away for another day. This being one of them. This piece of card seemed just the right piece for the planet and after it had been embossed with a snake skin Embossing Folder, which created craters. The larger spacecraft is stuck on with a wiggly spring, it is such a shame you can't see it moving on the page, it makes the card so interactive and fun. Wiggly spring available from Wear Crafts   I look forward to visiting you during the next week, have fun creating your Time - Space challenge.

U is for Unicorn

It was my turn to choose the subject, it being for the letter U in our Alphabet Challenges, I love the idea of the mythical beauty, the UNICORN. I do hope you have fun creating your project with this beautiful animal. Please visit the blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the design team. I used a  blue scalloped 8 inch square card. The background paper and the main image are from a CD I bought  from E Bay Unicorns from Maria G Designs, which I don't think are any longer in business.
I matted the main image onto holgraphic silver card. Added some pink/purple pearls, along with ribbon and a piece of purple and silver twisted cord. along with a Happy Birthday sentiment.

Christmas Stocking

Hello again, the challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz has been chosen by Julie, everyone loves to have a Christmas Stocking full of little goodies and  secret surpirses. We would like to see any style, design or cration of a Christmas Stocking. The design team have created some amazing inspirational cards for you so please do pop over to check them out. I decided to make a CAS card. I bought the scalloped round dark blue cards recently so felt I needed to try them out. I used my new round dies to create the holographic silver mat and the same blue card for the image. The stocking is from Debbie Moore, yes, it's a number of years old but I do love these stamps. The greeting is from the same set. I used Stampendous eaxtra fine detailed white Embossing powder to emboss the stocking and the sentiment. I'm looking forward to visiting you to see your Christmas Stockings for a MALE.

The Big Guy (Santa)

It's getting very close to The Big Guy (Santa) visiting all the children.  For the next month at
Sparkles Monthly Challenges it was my turn to choose the theme, so I have chosen 'The Big Guy'. We, the Design Team, have created inspiration for you so please do check out the challenge. I used a stamp set from Kanban. I stamped in red and black Ho Ho Ho to create the background. I used Festive Berries DI to the edges and around the circle. I used Promarkers to colour. Dovecraft Crystal Glitter glue on the fur edgings. I love using the Fluffy stuff, it is so magical. I added this to his beard. You just add the liquid, then heat it with your heat tool and it bubbles up and stays fluffy when it cools down. I'm sure you'll have fun, creataing your project, I'm looking forward to visiting you.

Non-Traditional Christmas

Hi, for the next two weeks at Ruby's Rainbow, the challenge is to make a project for Christmas but for it to be a Non-Traditional design. After seeing my Design Team card why not pop over to the blog to check out the amazing inspiration from the team. Firstly I thought about colour, black and white has not as yet, become traditional. I love doing Zentangle work, I'm not as good as I would like to be, but I am practicing. This Rudolph stamp from Woodware is the perfect open space needed to play with the tangles. The small tag Christmas greeting is from LOTV.  I hope you like my Non -Traditional style Christmas card. Have fun everyone.

Hi for the challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz,  Andrea has chosen Thanksgiving or Thankful. Our US followers will be celebrating their Thanksgiving and we on this side of the pond could take time to say Thank you to our family or friends and for us all to be thankful for the good things in our lives. For my card, the base is a Kraft card, The insert in the aperture is part of a lovely stamp from Little Claire - Swirly Owls, coloured with Promarkers. The tree panel is a piece of Kraft card, I used an Embossing Folder to get the bark effect, I used Gathered Twigs DI to colour the bark effect. A few leaves punched with a Matha Stewart leaf border punch and a thank you greeting from my stash. The bark panel was added to the main card, using dimensionals to create a depth between the two cards around the aperture for the owls. Sending warm thanks to all my US visitors during their Thanksgiving period and my thanks to every one of my visitors and for their lovely comments.
