Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop.  This month out theme is 'Gilded' AKA Metallics.  Here's my creation

For my card I used two images from the 'King of the Road' Digital Stamp Set, the car and the banner. I coloured both with a mix of Letraset Promarkers and Metallic Marker. I also used the Letraset Metallic Marker to stamp some of the splatters in the background.

I used some card stock from Basic Grey, along with patterned paper from 7 Gypsies. I used black and silver card stock for the bottom of my card, which I wanted to give the rough impression of a road.  I stamped a few ink splatters and splodges to break up the background a little, before adding my final embellishments; Bottle Caps with Black Gem Brads in the Centre.  I used my Big Bite to punch the holes in the Bottle Caps for the brads, can't believe how easy it was, definitely one of my favourite crafting tools.

That's all from me for today, Happy Hopping, you'll find the Full Blog Hop List below just in case you've missed any stops.

Easel-y does it with Bombshell Stamps

As this months Guest Designer at Bombshell Stamps, It was my honour to choose this months challenge theme; so I went with my all time favourite card fold, Easel Cards.  
Your challenge is to create any sort of Easel Card and link it up to the Bombshell Stamps Blog to be in with a chance of winning an awesome prize.

Here's my Easel Card;
and here it is opened up;
I used the beautiful 'Indian Princess' set of digital stamps from Bombshell Stamps on this project.  I coloured the images with a mix of Letraset Tria and ProMarkers before fussy cutting each image.  

I took 2 8x8 inch card blanks to create my Easel card, I added a score line at 4 inches on the front and then folded this in to create my card base.  The other card I cut into 2 8x8 squares, leaving one aside for another project.  

I then layered some gorgeous deep red mirri card onto my card base and front piece, before layering on some Distressed Co-ordinations card.  Using a strip of the mirri card I added a strip of foam tape, and then cut triangles to mimic the triangles in the Princess's headdress. I then added my images and text to the card.

Here is a close up of the image and text;
I searched the web for an Indian Proverb to add to my card, however when I came across the 'Native American Ten Commandments' I thought they would be even more appropriate for this card. You can find the Native American Ten Commandments along with lots of information on Native Americans at Legends of

That's all from me for now, thank you for visiting with me, and don't forget to visit the Bombshell Stamps Blog to enter the challenge, and to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Design Team.

I'm Ms August at Bombshell Stamps

Can you believe it's the 1st of August already?  This year certainly is passing quickly, and we've finally reached my favourite month.  I love August, It's my Birthday and Wedding Anniversary this month, so I've cause to celebrate all month.  This year I've the added celebration of being Bombshell Stamps Pin-Up of the Month, Yes I'm Ms August.

If you pop over to the Bombshell Stamps Blog today, you'll find a wee interview I did along with a few pics of my Bombshell Stamps Creations.  I thought i'd share the pics here too, with a little additional information;
 For this card I used the Wild Horses Digital Stamp Set .  I coloured this beautiful horse in two of my favourite colours Pink and Purple, and combined it with a Pink Card base, some Purple Washi Tape, Green textured card and a couple of sentiment stickers.
You'll see I used the same Wild Horses image for this card, I had a little fun with this one, using the Wild Horse image as my base for a wee bit of zentangle (or doodling).  After I'd zentangled the horse, I coloured it with Letraset Promarkers before fussy cutting it out.  My background was a plain piece of white card folded to create a A5 card to which I added a handdrawn border, wacky floor and sentiment.
My final card for today features an image you can get as a freebie over at the Bombshell Stamps Forum if your a newsletter subscriber. You can sign up for the newsletter Here, you'll also find full details of how to get your freebies once you've subscribed.

I coloured this beautiful basket & bouquet image with my Letraset Promarkers, before fussy cutting it out and adding a little orange stickles to the flowers centres. My background paper came free with a recent magazine, and I simply matted and layered them onto some white card stock, and added to my card base with foam pads to add dimension.

That's all from me for today, don't forget to pop back next week when i'll have a wee challenge for you. Until then Happy Crafting

Guest DT at Sweet Pea Stamps

I was honoured to be selected as this months Guest Designer at Sweet Pea Stamps, I have to admit they are one of my favourite stamp companies, they represent so many wonderful artists, I'm spoilt for choice every time I visit their store.

Today I get to share with you a couple of project I made using the beautiful 'Little Jasmine Mermaid' image by Elaine Cox.

As you can see with this project I embraced lots of bold colours, Little Jasmine is coloured with Letraset Promarkers and a little white pen for highlights.  I found the background paper in my craft stash and thought it perfect for this card, as the pattern reminds me of underwater plants.  I added a couple of heart shaped paper doilies, to soften the look of the background, and help create a dreamy romantic feel.  I'm sure this Little Mermaid is lost in thoughts of her Handsome Prince.
I added some die cut flourishes along with a wonderful mix of paper flowers and assorted gems.

Here is Version 2 of Little Jasmine Mermaid;
As you can see I went with a much more human looking mermaid, with beautiful peachy pink skintones and gorgeous orange/red hair. Once again Little Jasmine Mermaid is coloured with Letraset Promarkers, including some colours from the brand new Spring/Summer 2014 Limited Edition set.

I chose to use a very similar layout for this card, using round doilies in my background, along with some die cut flourishes and chicken wire.  I went for a softer more romantic look with this card, so added some pretty roses and heather, along with some white pearls.

Here you can see close ups of both version of Little Jasmine Mermaid;

I love how completely different one image can look depending on your colour choices.  Do you have a favourite out of the two?  I know I don't, I love how they both turned out. It was great fun colouring this image, and I can't wait to colour more beautiful images from Sweet Pea Stamps, luckily I have quite a collection, the only hard decision I have is which image to colour first.

Want to add this beautiful image to your collection, then why not hop over to Sweet Pea Stamps and grab her, she's only $3, which i think is a brilliant price for such a beautiful image. Want to see more projects created with Sweet Pea Stamps images, then you need to visit their blog to see the gorgeous creations by their very talented Design Team.

That's all from me for today,
Thanks for visiting with me and Happy Crafting

You Make Me Smile

Today I'd like to share my last project as a member of the 'That Craft Place' Design Team; before I share my project I want to say a massive Thank You to Lisa & Danny for running such an awesome store, and for being two of the nicest people i've had the pleasure of working with.  Not to forget the Amazing Erin for keeping us all on our toes and being a truly awesome DT Coordinator and Inspirational Crafter; and of course the rest of the DT for making my time at 'That Craft Place' a real pleasure, it's been an honour ladies.

For my last project I thought it only right to use one of Lisa's very own images which you can get hold of over at the Ditzie Digi Designs Etsy Store.  Here's Baggy Trousers;

I had great fun colouring this funky young lady, she's coloured with Letraset ProMarkers.  I kept the rest of the card very simple, using some white card stock for my card base, along with some textured coloured card which I distressed before adding it to my card.  I created a wee embelishment using a couple of buttons and a pearl.  Finally a wee sticker sentiment to finish my card off. 

That's all from me for today, Thank You for visiting with me.
Have a great day all

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.

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;
