Well what do I do, for Party using Wine Bottle Shaped Card, took me ages to think of something as I suppose it's out of my comfort too. But in saying that was really happy (or I should say surprised) how it turned out. I used all leftovers for my DP's, cardstock. I embellished with flowers, bling & ribbon as well as using Cheery Lyn Flourish Die. My wine label came from The Blissful Bee such an inspirational blog, I wish to thank Amyfor sharing such a freebie, of course now a follower by email. So lets get to and Party over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog, I hope you enjoy viewing my card.
Great theme for this weeks challenge, I decided on following "Silver" for mine, I wonder what the other Design Team Members chose, drop on over at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and see what inspirational creations they have in created for you, and join in the fun.
This time I made a square card using designer paper from Bearly-Mine Designs. My framed dies are from Memory Box Dies which I purchased from Lacy Sunshine Craft Emporium, some time ago. Once I placed my framed image onto the DP, I then added some ribbon, rhinestones, snowflakes and sentiment. I really loved how the silver cardstock I used compliments from my daughter (big hugs) to create the frame to encase the image. Because my Mum really loves blue, and this image has a dog, this will be her special Christmas Card.
This afternoon I made a card around Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #41, so love these quirky ants. I used Papermania designer paper and cardstock to create a Joy Fold card, been so so long since I've made one of these, just mucking around doing something different. I love these fun digis too, and I used a precoloured one this time called "Sledding Ants", such playful animals. I used sentiment from SU, ribbon, bell, flowers from stash. I have also a pic showing you the inside of this card too.
I'd love to enter into the following challenge/s ~
I used designer paper from Bearly-Mine Designs, so love this christmas paper, which I used not so long ago, just love the ornaments and the shades of pink & blue. I added pink ribbon, lace some rhinestones and a couple of flowers. I coloured the image in with my copics, the only difference from the sketch was I had already printed out my image and cut out not realising I hadn't left enough room to do a circle , I hope this is acceptable.
Another wonderful progressive challenge over at Lacy Sunshine Stamps Challenge Blog, their theme is "Celebrations", and this is a gift from Heather so drop on over to their blog and check out all the info and the lovely creations by the Design Team.
My designer papers are from Festive Frolics from Papermania, added snowflake (Sizzix die), bling, ribbon & sentiment (SU). This image is beautiful, she's called "Flurry", I love colouring her in with my copics, put touches of glitter to enhance her wings and the snowflakes.
A wonderful digi called "Gingerbread Train" for the month of December at Deedee's Digis, drop on over to see how you can get next month's digi for free. Such a great progressive challenge to enter, if you like something free pop on over you won't be dissappointed.
I used leftover DP's again, coloured in the image with copics, added some ribbon & rhinestones. Notice I created a design with the rhinestones under the ribbon to make it look like it's an ornament, or I hope it does.

I'd love the enter into the following challenge/s ~
I done a rather CAS style card, and cause I love purple so much, I came across my DP from Kaisercraft called "Magic Happens Collection", such a lovely set of papers. I used my white base, blue cardstock & sheer ribbon are from Kaszazz. I looked through my stash of lace and found some soft blue which worked really well, added some rhinestones & can't forget the glitter for the Angels wings and stars. "Scene It - Angels Believe" from Bugaboo Digi Stamps was coloured in with copics.
Well I thought I would make another christmas card today, and thinking who would love to receive it, made with heaps of love as always. I was inspired by Meljen's Design Team Challenge Blog this week with the theme being "Holly Berries", meaning use red & green on my card. I went through my digis and decided on "Christmas Star Snowman", which is available through Meljen's Design Digis. So I used cardstock as my main feature of the card, added some leftover designer paper. I coloured in "Christmas Star Snowman with copics added some glitter to hat and snow on the ground as well as glossy accent to the star. I don't own a corner punch so I cut it by hand , added a few red rhinestones, ribbon & twine. I then needed a sentiment and really love the cute tag I made which is from Meljen's Design Digis too called "Christmas Tag", also Merry Christmas came from SU.
Had a great morning making christmas tags and had to showcase them on the Christmas Tree. Was inspired by following Meljen's Design Team & Challenge Blog for this week with the theme being "Christmas Tags", very inspiring especially by one of the DTs creation by Celine using a doily. I used the same design and layout for all my tags, be prepared a few photos displayed, enjoy.

I wish to thank my lovely daughter for allowing me to use her christmas tree (mine can't go up cause of the purrballs), big hugs xx
I've used leftovers scraps of designer paper, doilies from SU, glitter, glossy accent, merry christmas ribbon, red organza ribbon, bling, eyelet, precut tags from Kaszazz, of course Meljens Designs Digis.
I so loved this image, so pleasurable to work with, doesn't the face look adorable and that cute little bird. I decided on a CAS style christmas card as I really wanted to make the image stand out as well as adding the red bow being our theme for this week. As you see just red & white cardstock used with touches of glitter on snowman & birds hat and for the snow I used white flock. I used border punch & sentiment are from Stampin' Up, as well as coloured image with copics.
For the Month of December we have a wonderful theme called "Christmas Feasts & Treats", over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge, the Design Team Members have made some very scrumptious inpsiring creations for you to join in on the challenge. We are proudly being sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps with a lovely prize to win.
Well the hunt was on to find an image to reflect scrumptious goodies to eat. We get to use our own images for this challenge and I wanted a digi just to show a yummy cute image of it's own, so what did I find. A gingerbread image, so happy when I realised I actually had one, which I purchased from Meljen's Designs Digital Shop, this image is called "Gingerbread Ornament", doesn't it look adorable enough to eat. I used scraps of DP's from my daughter's stash, and also cut out one of the trees to 3D the side of my image, cardstock from Kaszazz. I used rhinestones, open weave ribbon, sentiment from SU, and image was coloured in with copics, as well as background lightly chalked.
My DT card for challenge #35
~ Christmas Feasts & Treats ~
I like to say a good bye to all the DT Members and thanks Shaz for the opportunity, wish you all the best.
Christmas isn't that far away now, so it's a great time to start making some cards for your family & friends, and of course to enter this weeks challenge at Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog.
I chose "A Bell For Chirstmas" as I wanted to create a vintage look but traditional as well, and this was perfect. I used DP's from Vintage Christmas Paper Pad, SU cardstock, ribbon & oval punch for vellum sentiment. Then coloured my image with copics and background softly blended. I also used Spellbinders Oval Die & Memory Die Pine Border (so love this die). Of course I added quite alot of rhinestones in red & green.
Hi everyone, such a lovely morning here in Australia, and what better way than to relax and sit in my itty bitty room ; crafting with my purrballs & cup of coffee.
There's a great challenge over at Meljen's Design Team & Challenge Blog with the theme being "Giving Thanks". I chose to do Thanks Giving even though we don't really celebrate here, I thought it would be really nice to wish everyone in blogland and my friends I've meet on the way from overseas a "Happy Thanks Giving", from me to you.
I sat for awhile (quite sometime) pondering on a layout, and this is what I came up with. I used all scraps, jsut don't realise over time how much you accumulate in cardstock (Stampin' Up) & designer papers (Graphic 45). My sentiment fits perfectly this belongs to a set from SU called Tags 4 You which I purchased as a bundle & this gave me the punch as well. I embellished with pearls & ribbon. The cardstock I decided on one side as shown, using a border punch (SU) and my cute image called "Autumn Flower Mouse", which is from Meljen's Design Digital Stamps, so in love with these cut little critters.
It's a lovely start to the day here and busy making some wonderful cards to share with you. I following a sketch which is over at From The Heart Stamps and there's only just under 2 days to go to enter. I decided on my lovely image that I won recently with their amazing Birthday Blog Hop which can be found HERE, I was so excited to see I was selected and I chose Birthday Chicks.
~ My Card ~
I used scraps of cardstock from Kaszazz, and my designer papers are Basic Grey. I added ribbon which is Stampin' Up and rhinestones. My Birthday Chicks is coloured with copics with glitter on the balloon. Was such a lovely CAS style design to create.
