Happy Halloween!

Well it's nearly Happy Halloween time!!!
Here is my DT piece for Paper Craft Junkies Challenge number 2!
There are four digi stamps and lovely badges up for grabs if you enter the Challenge which you can find HERE!!!

For my piece I used the fab monster digi stamps from Paper Craft Junkie. I coloured the background paper with distress inks, and glittered it. The other backing paper was torn and distressed and faux stitching put on. The Happy Halloween was a Tim Holtz stamp, stamped on to craft card.

I think I did well considering it is just one week since my hand op!
Happy Crafting, Denyse x

With Love - Hearts!

Well as you know I have been entering a number of challenges with no success whatsoever LOL! So I thought that I would try entering a challenge where I made the card SPECIFICALLY for the Challenge (as opposed to making a card and seeing if there are any challenges running that fit it!)
So I settled on the Willow Sketchie Challenge  Willow Sketchie had two parts to it a theme, With Love - Hearts! and also a Sketch, which I have never tried before. the sketch is :-

I would also like to enter it for My Mum's Craft Shop whose theme is , "Love is all around"

So here is my card. I took a lot of time with it, and it wasn't easy as my hands are playing up (op very soon!) so have photographed the details as well!

I followed both the sketch and the theme colouring my Saturated Canary Valentine Digi Image with my copics. I started with my new Anniversary limited edition set of sketch pens, which were great for shading the hair and the eyes.

I then coloured in the rest of the image and glittered the hanging hearts.

I used a Cheery Lynn Die to cut the hearts out and saved the wasted hearts to stick on the border of the heart mat

and also the card candi which I also added

It was no mean feat to add the tiny diamante with my hands playing up!
Finally I used two ribbon tags to finish it off!

Anything goes!

Over at Cards Galore this month's Blog Challenge is "Anything goes!", which means you don't have an excuse not to enter!
As a DT member I was given a Meljen  digi image of this cute little Mouse with a cherry. I resorted to , "Have a Cherry Happy birthday", as my sentiment, but drew the line at , "Have a Cherry Mice Birthday!", sounds a little cruel as well as being groan making!

Anyway, I really enjoyed producing this bright and simple card design. I coloured the image using my Copic and added depth with my polychromos and sansodor.
I cut the Cherry out using my silhouette, and the matting and layering was done with Spellbinders.
Please head over to cards Galore and enter the Challenge, there are prizes!!!

A new Challenge Blog!

I was very honoured to be asked to join the Paper Craft Junkies Design Team and to join in with their very first Challenge. Using the FREE pre-coloured digi stamps the theme was "The Best of British". I chose the Bluebeary Hill King Bear, and covered him in glaze (I also bejewelled his crown) I then made a rosette by printing a Union flag (did you know it is only called the Union jack when flown at sea?) and cutting it into strips which I glued and folded. To make the background I printed the crown in black using my laser printer, I then foiled them with my laminator and then used my 2" square nestie to cut them into squares. I then arranged them a a background!

If you would like to use the FREEBIE digi stamps and or enter the challenge please head across to Papercraft Junkies and join in the fun!
