Presenting Angel Melody by Karen Middleton at Sweet Pea Stamps

Today it is my pleasure to be Guest Designer over at Sweet Pea Stamps. I've used the beautiful Angel Melody image by Karen Middleton for my project.

I fell in love with the beauty and serenity of this image as soon as I saw it, so it was a pleasure to work with.  I have to admit it was a little daunting to colour this image, as I wanted to convey the serenity and magic of it which is no easy task.  I therefore chose a simple colour palette of pale greys, pinks and glitter, with a little pop of brighter pink for contrast.

I used some of my all time favourite patterned papers for this project, Echo Park's Be Mine Collection, which i still have a few sheets of in my craft stash.  I then added a pretty pink paper doily along with musical MDF embellishments from That Craft Place Ltd, for sparkle I added some pink gems and lots of Cosmic Shimmer's Aqua Twinkles.

Here's a close up of the beautiful angel;
That's all from me for today, Thank You so much for visiting with me

That Craft Place Challenge - Words

Good Morning all, It's time for a new challenge over at the That Craft Place Challenge Blog.

Our theme this week is 'Words' - interpret that as you wish, it's a lovely open theme to get your imagination going.  Here's my card for the challenge;
For my card I chose to use the gorgeous Betty Boots - All the Copics image by That Craft Place Ltd. For my background I used the Dream, Create, Inspire, Wish Stencil by That Craft Place Ltd along with Rubber stamps from Crafter's Companions Words of Wonder Set 1 & 2. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry along with Dylusions Squeezed Orange Ink Spray.

I had great fun with this card and managed to get nearly as inky as the card. I don't think it's possible to use inks and sprays without getting a little messy!  I hope you like my card, now don't forget to hop over to the That Craft Place Challenge Blog to see the awesome creations from the rest of our Design Team, you will definitely be inspired.

Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #167 - Stitching - Real or Faux

It's Wednesday so time for some more Wicked Fun, With the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge
 This week our theme is Stitching - it can be real or faux whichever you like.

We are sponsored by

Here's my ATC,
For my ATC I used the Muscovado Sugar image from That Craft Place Ltd.  Unfortunately you can no longer get these images in digital form as Little Darlings have now purchased these characters and will be creating them into gorgeous rubber stamps.

My ATC today is not a happy one, simply because i'm not feeling very happy at the moment.  Lily Chilvers - owner/artist of The Octopode Factory and absolute sweetheart,  passed away this week after an 8-week battle with cancer. I didn't know Lily very well, but had been a fan of her awesome art since 2010.  She was such a beautiful, talented unique individual and it is heart-breaking that she's been taken from the world so young.  My sincere sympathies go to her friends and family, I can't imagine the pain they are going through at the moment.  Rest in Peace Lily xx

That's all for now, sending you all lots of hugs

Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop


Today we are celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, and what better way to do that, than to share lots of creative projects inspired by this wonderful story.

Not only will you see lots of amazing artwork today, but you can also win prizes from the following amazing companies;







Prize winners will be selected from Random blogs throughout the hop using Random.org to select each winner.  In order to be eligible for a prize you must visit all stops on the hop and leave a comment. The prize draws will be open until July 18th, with winners announced on July 20th.

Here's my Alice in Wonderland inspired projects;


My first project features the gorgeous Alice in Wonderland image that Teri Sherman of Delicious Doodles very kindly created for this hop. You'll find it in her Etsy Store some time today.

I used an MDF frame from That Craft Place for this project.  I decoupaged it with strips of black and white text patterned paper that I had in my stash.  Before adding my image and decoupaging that, altogether there are 4 layers of decoupage. The picture below gives you an idea of the dimension created.


For my next project I decided to make some ATCs;
My first set of ATCs features The Mad Hatter by Vera Lane Studio.  The sentiment comes from the same set of images. My background papers come from the Queen of Hearts Digital Paper Pack by The Invite Delight.  As an extra wee treat for you I've a discount code for the Vera Lane Studio for all of you who haven't added any of their gorgeous images to your collection yet; TRYVERA10 will get you a 10% discount on your order.


For my second set of ATCs I used the gorgeous Queen of Wonder image by Sandra Caldwell available at Sweet Pea Stamps.com along with a sentiment from Vera Lane Studio.  My background papers were from the Queen of Hearts Digital Paper Pack by The Invite Delight.

That's all my projects for today's hop.  Now it's time for you to grab a cup of tea and fall down the rabbit hole to enter our Alice in Wonderland Blog Hop.

Happy Hopping

Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge #165 - Red, White and Blue

How are you all doing this Wicked Wednesday?  The Weather is beautiful here at the moment, so lots of happy faces and white legs on display, lol!  

It's time for a new challenge over at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog
Our theme this week is Red, White & Blue

We are sponsored this week by the truly Wicked and Wonderful The Octopode Factory

Here's my ATC;
I used the truly Awesome Captain America image for my ATC.

For my ATC Base I used a piece of Red Mirri Card.  I then took a piece of paper slightly smaller and added some Blue and Red Faber-Castell Gelatos which I blend together with a sponge tool.  I then took a Star Mask/Stencil and using a baby wipe removed some of the blue from the background to create my white stars.  Once my paper was complete dry I adhered it to my ATC and added two white extra large staples.

Captain America is coloured with Faber-Castell PITT Pens, before being fussy cut and added to my ATC. I then added some Black PITT Pen around the image smudging it with my finger to give a softer effect. I also added some extra detail to the red background area with a Red and Black PITT Pen.  The last thing I did was to use the White PITT Pen to add highlights to my image and the background stars.

That's all from me for now, before you go don't forget to hop over the the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog to get full details on our Challenge, and to check out the awesome creations from the rest of our amazing Design Team.

Have a Wicked Wednesday

I ♥ PROMARKERS Challenge #276 - Summer

Good Morning, It's Wednesday so time for a new challenge over at the I ♥ PROMARKERS Challenge Blog, and this week's theme is very appropriate considering the lovely weather we are experiencing at the moment.  

Our Challenge theme is Summer

We are sponsored by the wonderful Stitchy Bear Stamps Outlet.

Here's my card;


I had great fun making this summery Easel Card using Tammy Tween - Just Chilling. I've combined her with papers from Bo Bunny's Barefoot and Bliss Paper Pad.  I added some Gold Gelato to the panel that the image is on, so it has a lovely mettalic glow.  I used Gold Pearlidoodles to add some dots of gold around my card.  My sentiment was cut from the same card stock i used for my Easel Base, using the Alice Alphabet Die from XCuts.

Here's a close up of my image;
She looks pretty relaxed to me.

Welcome back for another Wonderful Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge

Our sponsor this week is:

And our new theme is:


Here's my ATC
I used the gorgeous Mermaid and Hip image from PPinkydolls.
I printed my image and cropped it so that I only had the Mermaid, which i then coloured with Letraset Promarkers and a little Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen.
My Gems are a couple of gem dragonflies I found in my collection, which i thought looked very pretty with this delicate mermaid.
