Anything Goes with Digi Galore and Scrapper's Delight

The weekend is here again, and It's time for a new challenge over at Digi Galore, this time we've made the challenge so easy anyone can join in, that's because our theme is 'Anything Goes', create whatever you like as long as you create something new for our challenge.

Our sponsor this week is Scrapper's Delights, and we got to work with some super cute images, that you'll want to create with yourself.

Here is my creation;
I used the super cute 'Crafty Honeys Markers' image for my card. She's coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and ProMarkers, with the addition of a little white gel pen.

I used a Joy Craft die to create my notebook edging, so that my image resembles a page from a sketchbook.  I chose purple and red card stock to tie in with the colour of her hair, and outfit.  For my main background, I chose three washi tapes from my collection, and created a border along the bottom of the card, and a little down the left hand side.  I then added some purple card stock before adding my image which i'd matted onto red cardstock.  For my sentiment I chose some letter tile embellishments I had in my craft stash, and spelt out the words Create, With, and Colour.

Here's a close up of my coloured image;
This image definitely reminds me of myself, so I think I might use it as my profile picture for a while.  I hope you like it as much as I do.

To see the wonderful creations from the rest of the Digi Galore Design Team, and to link up your creation, hop over to the Digi Galore Blog.

That's all from me for now, Thank You for visiting with me today

Cute Card Thursday meets Rick St Dennis


Today sees a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, and it is being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis, which gave me the opportunity to be Guest DT.  A chance I jumped at, after all who doesn't like a cute card now and again.

The theme for the challenge is 'Circles' so time to embrace all things round and curvy to create some circular cuteness.
Here's my creation;
I used the super cute 'Sugar Plum Fairy Mouse' image for my project.
This pretty wee fairy is coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, along with a little white gel pen, and some sakura stardust for a bit of glitter on her wings and wand.

I decided to create one of my favourite styles of card, an easel card, I love how quick and simple they are too make, and this one was even quicker, as I used an easel card blank from Creata, so no need for measuring.  The card blank has a lovely scalloped edge with semi circular cut outs, but to make this a little fancier I used a Tonic circle die to cut the centre out, I then added a blue circle of card behind my die cut to create a pretty but simple background for my fairy.  So as not to waste any card, I cut a smaller decorative circle out of the remaining card, and used that to add my sentiment.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm's Hello-Go-Round set of stamps (now retired).  To embellish my card I added a few pearls around the top and base of the card to tie in with the 'circles' theme and add a little bling.

My colour choices for this card, are not necessarily what I would go for when creating a cute card, but I wanted to challenge myself, and have a go at Rick's Personal Challenge, which is to use a Rick St. Dennis image and create a project using Red, White and Blue.  Of course i'm not eligible for the challenge prize, as I'm lucky enough to be on Rick's EDT, but you've still got time to join in his challenge, just create your project, add a picture of it to the Rick St. Dennis Fans and Friends group on Facebook, and email a copy of the picture directly to Rick.

That's all from me for now, but don't forget to pop over to Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog, where you can see some more cute creations by the EDT for this challenge.

Here's what I decided to create for today's Blog Hop;
For my project I chose to use the beautiful 'Well Hello There' image by Kelly Rhodes, which you will find in the Ditzie Digi Design Store, along with lots of other beautiful images.

My project can be used as a Wall Hanging or Door Plaque, It's quite large being created with two 12" Polystyrene Pizza Bases.  Once I made sure my bases were nice and clean, I painted them with a coat of Avocado Acrylic Paint before setting aside to dry.

The next stage was to add the Webbed Ribbon and Satin Ribbon, before gluing the two bases together.  After leaving it to dry I added some pins to the ribbon and around the edging of the hanging.  I then added my image, before adding lots of blue and clear gems.

I've left a space above my image for Personalization!  That is because I'll pick one lucky commenter to receive this unique piece. All you need do is leave me a comment, and It could be Yours!

Rick St Dennis Progressive Challenge: Midway Reminder

It's half way through the month, so time to remind you about the Rick St Dennis Progressive Challenge; It's the second part of our Steampunk Challenge, and this time we want to see your creations using the 'Youre a Winner Nyner the Little Monster Stamp'.  If you took part in the first part of our Steampunk Challenge then you'll have received the image for free, if you didn't you can still join in the challenge by purchasing Nyner.

Here's my creation using Nyner;
Nyner is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white pen for highlights. I added a little red Pan Pastel to the background of my image. For my main background piece I embossed some yellow cardstock with the Spellbinders 3D M-Bossibilities Creative Cogs folder before applying red Pan Pastel to bring out the design. I created a frame for this embossed background using the Joy! Crafts Gears Border Die and some red cardstock.  To further embellish my card I added some yellow satin ribbon to echo the sash Nyner is wearing, and some tiny orange brads.  My sentiment is created using the Scrabble Alphabet Digital Stamps from Ditzie Digi Designs.

Here is a close up of Nyner;

That's all from me for today, don't forget to hop over to Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St Dennis EDT Blog to see the awesome creations from the rest of the EDT, and to link up your project.

Feeling Nautical and Blue with Digi Galore Challenge Blog

Good day All, Today I'd like to share with you my latest DT project for the Digi Galore Challenge Blog, our challenge launched last Saturday, but you've still got a week to play along with us, and it's a lovely theme; We want to see your Nautical and/or Blue creations, here's mine
We are very lucky to be sponsored by Whimsy and Stars Studio for this challenge, and I used their super cute 'Spring Boy and Girl' image.  My image is coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white gel pen.  I decided to create a vintage feel with this card, so kept my colours muted, and teamed my image with papers and a die cut from a Creata Paper Pad.  I added a little bling with some Papermania Pink Gem Brads, along with some pink gems and a sweetheart blossom.

I quite like how this card turned out, but I think it's missing something, just not sure what! Maybe another patterned paper in the background, or some ribbon/fabric? Anyway it's a little different from my usual style, and I do love to try new things.

Thanks for visiting with me today, and I hope you find time to play along with our fun challenge at Digi Galore Challenge Blog, don't forget to pop over to see the beautiful creations from the rest of the Design Team and to link up your project to win some lovely images from our sponsor.

Have a wonderful day

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so that means it's time for another Hump Day Hop with Bombshell Stamps.  This month we want to see you go 'A Cut Above' the rest and show us what you can do with die cuts and your gorgeous Bombshell Stamps.

Here's my creation
For my card I used the beautiful 'Rose's Portrait' Stamp. I've coloured her with a mixture of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white Graph'it pen for highlights.
For my frame i've used the new 5 x 7 Reflective Moment Die from Spellbinder. I love this die, perfect for picture frames and mirrors, I can see me using it alot.  I coloured the die cut with Gold Promarker around the edge to give the impression of a frame, before adding some Midnight metallic gilding wax and a little white pen.
I used papers by 7 Gypsies along with some black card stock.  I also used a Tonic Rose Border Punch to create the black panels behind my image.

Tag your it with Digi Galore

Welcome to another fun challenge post, it's time for a new challenge over at the Digi Galore Challenge Blog, and this time our theme is...
Yes, we want you to make a Tag, no cards allowed, so show us your best tag, remember tags can be pretty much any shape you like, as long as there is some way to attach it to something else, then the sky's the limit, here's my tag
Our sponsor for this challenge was Funky Hand, so I used there super cute 'Star Cake' digital stamp for my tag. I coloured my image with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, before die cutting it with a square die.  My paper, washi tape, twine and luggage ticket sticker all came from Papermania's All Aboard Collection.  I found some letter tiles in my stash to create my sentiment.

I have to say I love how this turned out, the perfect tag for a go away gift for someone who is off on a big adventure. I hope you'll have as much fun as I did with our challenge, just remember to hop over to the Digi Galore Challenge Blog, to check out the awesome creations from the rest of the Design Team, and to find out how you can join in and be in with the chance of a lovely prize from our sponsor.

Rick St. Dennis Progressive Challenge will get you all Steamy!

All Steampunky to be exact, Today I'd like to share with you a steampunk creation made featuring an awesome image by the extremely talented Mr Rick St. Dennis.  This is my EDT creation for the May Progressive Challenge over at the Sparkle and Glitter Rick St.Dennis EDT Blog, the challenge is very simple you just have to create something on the monthly theme using a Rick St. Dennis image, and if you do you get a free special image for the following months challange.

So here's my Steampunk creation using the beautiful Olympia;
I requested a Coppelia inspired Dancing Clockwork Robot, and Olympia is the awesome creation that appeared in my inbox courtesy of the wonderful Rick St. Dennis.  Isn't she just divine!  I love her, and had a great time colouring her with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers.

My background papers are from a Digital Scrapbooking Kit inspired by Alice in Wonderland from Divine Digital. (Unfortunately looks like they are no longer trading) I chose a rather wild pattern for my main background, so decided to keep embellishment to a minimum, and die cut some cogs and watch parts using my Xcut Dies and Black Card stock.

Here is a close up of Olympia;
I just love the level of detail in this image, you can see all her cogs and working parts.
Want to get your hands on Olympia, well she'll be in Rick's Stores really soon, so make sure you check out the Rick St Dennis Etsy Store and Zibbet Store for this and loads more awesome images.

Don't forget to visit the Sparkle and Glitter Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog to check out the truly wonderful creations from the rest of the EDT, and to take part in our challenge.  Want to show us your creations and get more inspiration from Rick and the EDT, then join the Rick St. Dennis Fans & Friends Facebook Group.

I'd like to enter this card into the current Passion for ProMarkers challenge which has the theme of 'No Sentiment' this time around.

Can you Alter It with That Craft Place

It's time for a new challenge over at the 'That Craft Place Challenge Blog' and this time the theme is;

I went for the Alter It option, and decided to Alter a Picture Frame, here's what i came up with;
I used the awesome 'The Pilot' image by Lisa Cree for this project, you can find this image and lots more wonderful digital stamps and sentiments in the DitzieDigiDesign shop on Etsy.

For my background I used Broken China and Stormy Sky Distress Inks to give the impression of a cloudy sky, I create a rough mask for my clouds using some scrap paper and a pair of scissors.  I then used Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink with a Chicken Wire and an Eye Chart Mask/Stencil to add some contrast to my background, and give it a little more of a steampunk/industrial feel.

My image was coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, before being fussy cut and glued to my frame. I heat set the ink on my frame before adding my image, and then added a coat of Aleene's Glossy Collage Pauge to seal my project, you could use Mod Podge for this step too.  I just went with the first sealant that came to hand.

That's all from me for today, Don't forget to hop over to the 'That Craft Place Challenge Blog' to check out the rest of the Design Teams awesome creations.

Getting Krafty with Digi Galore

Today I'd like to share with you my first DT project for Digi Galore Challenges I'm so honoured and excited to be on this wonderful team, I'm sure most of you know how much I love working with Digital Stamps and Digi Galore is one of the best places for finding information, inspiration and lots of link to gorgeous images by very talented artists.

The theme of this weeks challenge is
Print your image onto Kraft paper/cardstock or use it for your Card base or background, whatever you like, just make sure there is some Kraft in your project.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Art by Miran
Here is my card using the beautiful Princess Digital Stamp;
My image is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with some Graph'It White Shake It for highlights; along with some Dark Red Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen for the embroidery details on her dress. I used Kraft card stock for my card base, with papers from First Edition's J'Adore Paper Pad and 7Gypsies Classic Paper Pack.  I used some embossed metallic stickers for my decorative edges.

That's all I did, a very simple card, but with such a beautiful image, it didn't need a lot of decoration. I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for visiting with me today, and don't forget to pop over to the Digi Galore Challenge blog to see the beautiful creations from the rest of the Design Team, and to find full details of how to join in our challenge.
