Snow time Sprite!

I think I am measuring my life in fortnightly stretches! Another fortnight has passed and once again there is a new challenge at Scrappers Delights The theme is, "Bling it up!" Which is a great theme as you can choose anything you like provided it has some gems and or sparkle!

I chose the lovely Winter Elf digi and coloured her with my Copics. I designed the background panel myself and cut it on my Cameo. The other backing was embossed and sprayed with Crafters Companion pink glitter spray. I added some bling and here she is ....

Happy Crafting,

Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Well, it's official, Father Christmas is having to help the Elves out with the toymaking this year. Mainly due to an unprecedented demand for sledges, thanks to the UK weather forecasters who have been making wild predictions of snow (as yet unseen in these parts!)
I managed to capture this sneak preview of the venerable gentleman , in his shirt sleeves, helping out with the UK sledge shortage.
The image is from Scribble and Scrap and can be found HERE .
As usual I cut everything on my Cameo. The image and picture frame using print and cut and the rest on a normal cut. Coloured with Copics, Graph'it and Kuretake Alcohol markers and a bit of glitter for a twinkle!

Happy Crafting!

Monkey Business!

This little card proved a welcome break from Christmas and Halloween! Over at Cards Galore the challenge is Animals and Meljen have kindly sponsored the challenge offering four digi stamps from the store for the winner.
As usual I cut everything on my Cameo (card, mats, lettering, birthday badge) the monkey was coloured in using Copics AND Graph'it pens. I treated myself to the skin tone set and also some reds. I have to say that they are a quality pen. I love my Copics and work well with the brush end but there are times when you could do with a fine bullet end (and the colours in the anniversary set are limited in number) and that is where the Graph'its step in for me! They are beautiful to hold and very juicy, I just need to understand how the numbers work as the colours aren't quite blending how they should for me yet!
Happy Crafting!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Have you entered the Scribble and Scrap Challenge yet? The theme is always, "Anything Goes", and the prize is £15 of digis or £20 if you use a scribble and scrap digi in your entry! Why not pop over and enter this fortnight's challenge?
For my project I used the Vintage Steampunk Car SKU 0020 . I printed the background paper and foiled it in silver using my Letraset hot foil machine. I used print and cut on my Cameo to print out the vintage car and cut it out. I then foiled the car in black. I cut my mount pieces on the Cameo (I am hopeless at cutting a straight line!) and cut the letters out of vinyl on my Cameo. 
I thought my dad would love this for his birthday!
Happy Crafting!

Magical Mince Pie Anyone?

Christmas is around the corner and the supermarkets are, "Beginning to look a lot like Christmas", so I loved this gorgeous mince pie and fairy digi image which is part of the new releases over at Scrappers Delights.

I typed out the recipe and foiled the text in silver. I cut the pocket, insert, card, holly and mats on my Cameo using a regular cut and the fairy and mince pie using print and cut.All colouring was with Copic, Kurecolor  and Tria pens.
Happy Crafting!
