Easter Basket at The Digi Bell's

It's my turn to post  over on The Digi Bell's Blog and today I have made an Easter Gift Tag using the Easter Basket from Elisabeth Bell's digi collection
I coloured the image in with tria markers and added some kindyglitz in the middle of the flowers! I die cut the shape of the tag using a peony circle. I embossed the base and added kindyglitz to that for some sparkle. I had a look through my embellishment drawer and found these letters and chipboard flower and thought these may work on my tag and they were perfect. I added the ribbon to the top and I think it turned out better than I was expecting! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stop by The Digi Bell's blog on Friday (and here) for the Digi Bell's blog hop where we will be sharing some inspiration using the newest addition to Elisabeth Bell's digi collection.

Bunnies, Chicks and Eggs at Craft Your Passion!

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Craft Your Passion! I have just got back from being away for a few days so this will be a quick post as I have washing  and unpacking to do before a friend arrives tomorrow.
Anyway, this weeks challenge is Bunnies, Chicks and Eggs and we are sponsored by Stitchy Bears Stamps
I made an Easter Gift card with this sweet chick image! I decided to go a bit quirky with this one and colour the chicks a colour other than the normal... Afraid it is not my best colouring as I was getting sick when I made this but it looks ok! I coloured the image using tria markers and added some crystal effects to the mirror and some glitter to the chicks hats and hat box! Then I added the ribbon and button o finish it off! The paper was from my scrap stash! I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion

For that Special Lady at Paper Crafting Journey!

Hi everyone.. hope you are well wherever you are in the world! It's school holidays here so I am at my Mum's before heading off camping tomorrow. Unfortunately weather is not pleasant but we will still have an awesome time.
So a new challenge has started at Paper Crafting Journey and for the next two weeks we would like to see your creation "For that Special Lady". We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter who have the most adorable images
I love that when you get the digi image it also comes with a backing paper and and a coloured version of the image which I always like to create with because it gives me more time to create rather than spending the time colouring.

So I have used the paper and pre-coloured image for this card. I printed it out twice so that I could give the card some dimension. So I cut out parts of the paper which I raised on various sizes of foam tape so that there were different layers. I also cut out the girl and the umbrella  and layered them with foam tape. I then added some kindyglitz cos I felt it needed some sparkle, added a couple of buttons and then stamped the sentiment.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Paper Crafting Journey

Sketch 62 at Seems a Little Sketchy!

Time for a new challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. WE are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish this fortnight
 here is the sketch

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees anti clockwise for my card
I coloured the image in with tria markers. The embossed paper was something I found in my scraps. I added the ribbon and die cut flower and the used a circular crafty sentiments sentiment!, then added the buttons cos that side looked a bit bare!!
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Seems a Little Sketchy!

Little Rapunzel at The Digi Bell's!

Well it is Sunday evening here, my house is a mess, I'm way behind with my card making but the Bombers thrashed the Blues (Aussie Rules) so I shall sleep well tonight..LOL.
It's my turn to post on The Digi Bell's Blog so I've quickly whipped up this cute card using Little Rapunzel from Elisabeth Bell's digi collection!

This actually looks better in person, I think because of the light I took the photo in. The background is something I stamped out ages ago using some Stampin Up stamps and just came across it while looking for an image to colour. So I cut that to size then coloured Little Rapunzel in with tria markers using the same colours. I then cut out the peony circle to put her on  and made a frame which I coloured with kindyglitz. I added the ribbon and the green spotty button and decided that I didn't want to add anything else so just decided to glitz it up with kindyglitz!
Thanks for stopping by ... if you would like Little rapunzel or any other Elsiabeth Bell digi image then head on over to Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection.

Anything but SQUARES at Craft your Passion!

What a beautiful autumn day it is here in Melbourne. 31 degrees with a nice breeze, perfect washing conditions.. Makes me sound a bit sad really doesn't
Well it's time for a  new challenge at Craft your Passion and this week our challenge is "Anything but Squares", so we want to see your shaped cards! I have no imagination when it comes to these challenges as I don't have big enough dies to cut out a shaped card so I went with a regtangle card and made sure there were no squares inn
We are sponsored by The Doodle Pantry this week and we got to play with some of their fab images! I chose to use Monster Mash. I just love these sweet little monsters!

I used the pre-coloured images from the Monster Mash set as well as the sentiments! The spotty, dotty paper is all from the Monster Mash set. I decided I wanted to make a waterfall card (I think that's what they are called) so that I could use as many images as I could. Not sure of the colours are too girly but I had intended the card to be for a boy! My son loves it but he loves anything I make! I wasn't too sure what else to decorate the card with but I think the buttons work perfectly!!. I added the big red button just to tie in with the last image colour!
So thanks to the Doodle Pantry for these cute images! I hope that you can join us this week at Craft Your Passion.
