Crimbo Crackers Challenge 116 - Snowmen

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:

Snowmen

I've used a cute decoupage sheet - Tinsel Tots from La Pashe and used up an offcut of card to make the base.  The paper is from my stash and I've added cute little wooden stars and a string of fairy lights.


Good luck with the challenge!  For more details pop over to the blog!

Tea Trolly Dolly

I made this card for a work colleague's birthday as we always joke that we need a tea trolley - so perfect image from Dr Digi - Tea Trolly Dolly which I've coloured with Promarkers.  I've added one of the sentiments from Comic Sentiments sheet which comes pre coloured so its simply, cut it out and add it to the front of the card with a foam pad!

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 115 - Shaped Card

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and I'm joined by a Guest Designer!  The theme for the fortnight is

Shaped Card

I've used a pre printed die cut decoupage card kit from a pack - Pepper's Christmas Party that I've had for a few years and found in my stash (whilst looking for something else!)  I had to trim some edges as they had a little tab and I've inked the edge with a rather worn out pad and added a straight edge to the bottom of the card so it would stand up.


All the decoupage elements have been added with foam pads.  A really quick and easy card to make!  Good luck with the challenge!

Faldaree Deirdery

I made this card for a work colleague's Birthday who was not amused with the thought that there were snakes on Anglesey when she went walking with her family!

Faldaree Deirdrey from Dr Digi has been coloured with Promarkers and I've added her to the old road map with foam pads.  I managed to find a page with Anglesey on it so it was perfect!  I made the sign and the grass is a Clearly Besotted die (which I think is retired as its no longer on the website)

From The Heart Stamps Blog Hop - Random Image!

It's the first Monday of the month so it can only mean a From The Heart Stamps Blog Hop!  The theme for the month for the DT is:

Random Image

Each of the DT were assigned a random image from the store and I was given this cute Back to School Snowman which is from the Project 100 Snowmen.  I've coloured him with Promarkers plus glossy accents over the glasses and decided to make a gift tag with a jumbo Sizzix die and ribbons from my stash.

 



If you've arrived at me from Michelle then you're on the right track - I'm the last in the hop so don't forget to leave me a comment and then hop back to the blog and leave a comment there too!

This hop is just for fun as Faith is unwell, and it is likely to be our last activity as a Design Team for some time - we hope to be back with Faith is well enough.

The hop will end on Sunday 11 September at 6am EST and the winners will be posted on the From The Heart Stamps blog on the following Wednesday.

Good luck!

Time For A Soak

Now I like nothing better than an uninterrupted soak in the bath. Of course, that very rarely happens...... Deirdery, from Dr Digi, on the other hand has it down to a fine art! 

Deirdery as been coloured with Promarkers then added to the background - papers from my stash and I've made the floor boards and skirting board myself - with foam pads so she stands proud a little.  Letters have been cut with a Cuttlebug alphabet set.

Papers are A to Z by Samantha Walker - I've been creative with the borders and the circle die cut (there was not quite enough for a full circle so the image is hiding a gap!) and I'm using a lot of left overs!  The three black half pearls are from my stash  And to finish, I've added a running stitch with a black fine liner pen around the edge of the card and also the circle die cut.
