As always it is , "Anything Goes",  at Scribble and Scrap and a new challenge begins today. For my card I wanted to create a distressed vintage feel. I used Vintage Steampunk Corset SKU 008 which I printed, sewed down some of the lines (which doesn't really show!) and then masked. Using Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose distress ink pads I inked with the pads directly to the image to create blocks of overlapping colour. I used my distrezz-it-all to distress the edges. For the background silver paper I printed using a mono laser printer and then foiled again I distressed the edges of both papers.
Finally I layered it all up and added a washi tape, tape measure, some pins, tulle and a button.
I hope you like the effect!
Happy Crafting!

No Tricks here!

It's Halloween Challenge  time at Scrappers Delights and so I decided to create a treat rather than a trick!
For this project I cut my Halloween basket, pumpkin and Sabrina witch and the word "Treat" (out of vinyl) using my Cameo. Colouring was down with my Copics. I used twisted craft wire for the handle and to attach the tag. I am excited to say that this project featured on the Silhouette Cameo Show on Create and Craft TV on Saturday!
Happy Crafting!

New Releases at Scrappers Delights

Fabulous new releases are available NOW at Scrappers Delights. They include fabulous elves and sprites and an absolutely brilliant collection of mushrooms which are begging to be played with!
 Also Scrappers Delights are now available from the Stitchy Bear digi outlet!!

Once again I used Dylusion sprays and stencils for my background. The mushrooms were printed and cut out using my Cameo (and what a finely detailed cut it made!) and coloured with copics. The mushrooms were dotted with blender to give their spots!
Happy Crafting!

A Darling Di's Digi For Halloween!

Some time back I was lucky enough to win a challenge which was sponsored by Di's Digi stamps. I don't know if you have checked them out but they are absolutely gorgeous. I was able to choose some digi stamps as my prize and one of them was this  lovely Wendy the Witch.

To create my card I sponged dusty concord distress ink through punchinella to give a Halloween coloured background. Spritzed a piece of white card with water and then added various Dylusion sprays. Then I applied stencils and spritzed through those with more inks and then water.

The frame was cut on my Cameo and the image was cut using the print and cut facility on the Cameo. Finally I coloured in the image using my Copics and a Tria marker (lol!) I used the blender pen to leech out some colour on the kitten to give some texture to his fur.

Happy Crafting!

Bag it up!

It's "Anything Goes" Challenge time again at Scribble and Scrap and I suggest you visit the online shop and pop a digi in your basket as if you use a Scribble and Scrap digi image you will be eligible for a £20 store voucher (yes you did read that correctly!) If you don't use a Scribble and Scrap digi the prize is still a very generous £15 voucher, so what are you waiting for?

I used the Bumper Owl set which I cut with my Cameo using the Print and Cut feature, to create a gift bag tag and note card set.

Happy Crafting!

Hello to Halloween

Autumn has blown in with a vengeance and Halloween is calling! I was delighted to be given this fabulous digi stamp to work with, you can find it on the Whimsy stamp site just click on the logo below and it will take you there.

I started by creating a multicoloured background using Dylusion sprays, The web overlay was cut on my Cameo and I welded a pumpkin in the middle. I cut another pumpkin in silver and embossed it. I then rubbed in treasure gold and added distress inks.
The image was cut on my Cameo using the print and cut facility and then coloured with copics. The white pearls were also coloured with my Copics.
So here she is, 
Happy Crafting,

Decoupage at Scrappers Delights

It's challenge time over at Scrappers Delights and once again you can win a $10 voucher to spend in the Scrappers Delights store! The theme is, "Decoupage", and the Digi I used is called Tears of a Clown (although it reminds me of a little Madam possibly being somewhat stroppy!) I think it shows just how versatile the digis are in the Scrappers store.

I used the print and cut on my Cameo to create my own decoupage layers, each layer was coloured with Copics and I kept to a simple colour palette.

Happy crafting!
