White on white with a splash of Colour!

The new Challenge at Papercaft Junkies  is White on White with a Splash of Colour! The winner will be chosen (not picked at random) and will win 3 digi stamps of their choice. if the winning entry uses a PCJ image then the prize will be 4 digi images!
If you head over to Papercraft Junkies you will also find some great FREE stamps and if that isn't enough for you, there is a sale on now too! You could pick a freebie, enter and win 4 digi images!
For my Dt piece I decided to use the Elf image which I coloured with my Copics. I cut a box bag on my Silhouette with a cut out window. I made a "shaker thingy" out of acetate for the window and added dimension with snowflakes and glitter. I also coloured the image on to a piece of white tissue paper, which I transferred to a candle. I also cut out a swirl in dots and used a metallic pen through the dots to decorate the sides. I wrapped it in cellophane as I always think that looks better!

I would like to enter this for the SweetPea stampers Challenge "Gifts" 

Here it is!

Silhouette Sensation!

Well , not exactly a sensation but I liked the alliteration!
This month at Cards Galore the theme is, "Silhouette" and there is a mystery prize for the winner!

 This card was made using my cameo Silhouette (appropriate!) I bought the owl file, but designed the rest (frame leaves and branches) myself. I made a round easel card and airbrushed the backgrounds to try and give the effect of a sunset. I cut my design on black vinyl and made the embellishment button using a silicone mould and embossing powders. I glittered the "clouds". Finally I cut the branches and used them as a 3 D "stopper" for the easel.

Autumn to You Part 2!

Here is my second card for the Autumn to you challenge at D.C.C & Friends click HERE for details on how you can enter and win one of the lovely prizes available including two A5 stamp sets donated by Sue Wilson and sponsored by Particraft, and your choice of 4 digi stamps from Papercraft Junkies

I decided to have a Halloween theme for this one. Bethany bought the stamp for me as a treat (lovely girl XXX) and I coloured it in using my copics and highlighting with my polychromos and sansodor.

I designed the card shape inspired by my favourite Spellbinders Frame and made a print and cut file using my Silhouette Cameo. I chose the "poison" file for the print element. I coloured with distress inks and also sewed around the edge in red . I cut the Boo and the pumpkin and then edged with gold pen.

On to my "Things with Wings" card!

The Challenge over at Papercraft Junkies is "Things with Wings". Obviously have a slightly "Special", mind I immediately thought of hippos with wings :)
I used the fab digi of a hippo (buy yours HERE for only 75 p in the SALE!) and combined it with a set of bee wings (HERE!)

I coloured with my Copics ❤ distressed the background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink (the summer blue one) and used a mask to emboss and then ink and glitter the white mat. 

I thought the sentiment "Life is full of Surprises" would be appropriate and using Hobbit font, created the text, fixed it to a wavy path and cut it in vinyl on my Cameo ❤

I am really impressed with the quality of cutting tiny images :)

I also made an acetate spring so my hippo could "Fly" off the card!

Please hop on over to Papercraft Junkies and join in the Challenge to win digi stamps of your choice. Also checkout the FREEBIES!

All Good things Come in 3's!

Well, what with a very busy half-term and my hand getting a little sorer as I use it more, I have 3 cards and challenges to blog today! I will blog each separately so that I can hopefully enter some challenges :)

To begin I have an Autumn Card for the fabulicious challenge over at D.C.C & friends, the theme is,
"Autumn to You", We have two fabulous sponsors this time, so there'll be two overall winners and a top 3 chosen!

There are two A5 stamp sets donated by Sue Wilson and sponsored by Creative Expressions up for grabs.

We are also sponsored by the gorgeous Tracey at Papercraft Junkies, and one lucky winner can choose four digi stamps of their choice. If you head over to PCJ you will find a SALE on and some freebies to play with too!

So here's my card, I coloured the image with copics & distressed the edges. I cut the leaves and painted them, also coating them with crackle paints. I used double sided sticky tape and autumn mix gold leafy stuff burnished on top for the edges!
