52CCT February Theme

Hello everyone, today is the 3rd week in February and this means over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we have a Theme Challenge. And Netta this month has chosen

03 February theme

This theme I think can be used in so many different ways. I love it when the challenge is so open like this.

02 Wk3 Theme

This adorable bear is “Christmas Teddy Cocoa” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. I coloured him in with my Copic markers and used my White Opal Liquid Pearls for the fuzz around his Santa Hat. I matted each of the layers with Maroon Cardstock and left the rest of the card pretty simple.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for 52CCT. I hope that you will consider coming over to our blog and playing along with our challenge. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Do something that makes you joyful.

52CCT February Colour

Hello everyone, today it is time for us to have some fun with colour. It is the second week of February and this means it is colour challenge time over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And this week Netta has chosen these colours for us to have fun with …

02 Feb colour

Netta wants us to have fun with Monochromatic Tones of Blue. This should be a lot of fun but also a challenge as well as sticking with just one colour palette.

02 Wk2 Colour

This ended up being a fun card to design. I got to play with a lot of different supplies in my craft room. I have used a stripes embossing folder for the background paper, the lacy strip across the middle was actually white to start off but I used 2 Distress Inks to colour it up with my makeup brushes. I stamped the word tree image with 3 different blue inks and ran my inks around the edge of the panel. Lots of fun to make but a simple design I think?

52CCT January Theme

Hello everyone, and welcome to week 3 of January with the team from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. With it being the 3rd week of the month it is time for us to have a Theme Challenge. Our hostess Andreja has chosen

03 January theme

What a wonderful theme to play with this week. And I think that this could be used in so many ways.

01 Wk3 Themer

As I started looking through my Christmas paper stash I found this piece that was big enough for my background paper. I knew that I had these present stickers in my stash; previously I had used these on Birthday cards but they fitted in so well with this theme. It just goes to show you that your images can have multi-purposes. 🙂 Just by adding a Christmas sentiment they become Christmas presents.

52CCT January Colour

Hello everyone, welcome to week 2 of January challenges. With it being week 2 we are going to be having fun with colour this time around and our host Andreja has chosen these ones for us to play with.

This is such a wonderful set of colours to play along with. When I saw this combo I knew exactly what I wanted to do for it.

01 Wk2 Colour

So what do you think of my choice? The papers that I have used are from a Kasiercraft paper pack that is Australian inspired papers. The Kookaburra image is from Make it Crafty and is a digital image so I can size him for any project. The sentiment I made on my computer and then coloured it in with my distress inks so it wasn’t so stark.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project for our colour challenge this week. I hope that you will stop on by our blog and play along with our challenge. But before you go on over there I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Keep going at your pace; it is enough.

Cards and Yarn

Hello everyone, today is day 6 of the Catch the Bug: Holiday Critter Chaos Challenge. And this time around its a colour challenge. And I just loved the combo that they chose.

This photo below made me so happy for a few different reasons. The colour combo is purple – which I LOVE!!. The photo is of yarn and when I am not making cards you can usually find me playing with yarn. I buy yarn from stores but I also spin my own as well. My card photo features a half spun bobbin of purple shaded yarn which I haven’t completed yet.


Bugaboo Holiday Critter Chaos Challenge Day 6 – Colour Challenge.

For my card, I used some bauble stamps from my collection and stamped them over the background in colours which were as close as I could get to the challenge colours. The polar bear with his scarf was coloured in with my copics. I was able to add the mustard yellow here as I didn’t have ink in this colour. I fussy cut the image but going closer near his hands and feet so that he could sit nearer to the sentiment sticker.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Day 6 Critter card. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought for the post.

Meowy Christmas

Hello everyone, another card for the Holiday Critter Chaos happening over at the Catch the Bug Challenge blog. I am having so much fun playing with their critter images.

Bugaboo Holiday Critter Chaos Challenge Day 5 – Photo Inspiration

I used this image because it always puts a smile on my face and I know a few cat lovers who will enjoy receiving this next Christmas. It is so nice to be already working on my cards for next year I’m not usually this lucky to be getting ahead of things.

I decided to keep the card design pretty simple because I wanted the image to shine on the front of the card. These papers have been sitting at the bottom of my Christmas stash for I don’t know how long. I want to shout myself some new paper pads but I may be a little late now unless I pick up some in the post-Christmas sales 😉

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I am glad that you stopped by my blog; before you depart I want to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Critter Card 4

Hello everyone, I had fun colouring in this Ewe picture for my card today. I must admit that I think that my family thought I had gone mad because they could hear giggling going on while I was adding the sparkle 😀

Bugaboo Holiday Critter Challenge Day 4: Bingo Time

For my card, I used the Left Side Column – Glitter, 3 Layers, Tree

This card was a lot of fun to create. First, the colouring of the Ewe even though I went quite simple with it I liked the soft colours. Then trying to find all the elements for the bingo elements. Then deciding to colour in the Ewes hooves with pink glitter gave me the giggles and I think my family thought that I had lost it … finally! But we must always enjoy our creative process no matter who thinks we have gone crackers.
