New Release Day 2 at Crafty Sentiments

Wow did you see the amazing projects by the DT yesterday introducing you to the new stamps over on the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog.  Weren't they fabulous and the stamps will be available to buy tomorrow at the Crafty Sentiments Store.  So today the DT are showing you some more fabulous projects they have made to showcase these gorgeous new stamps. 

I have used 'My Gift' and I have made a Christmas Countdown wall hanging.  I used a piece of mountboard and covered it with a piece of digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs and before printing it I added a countdown calendar which I got free online but I can't remember where from (sorry).  The tree and lampost are cut on the Cricut.  I coloured 'My Gift' with spectrum pens & pencils and then I added glamour dust to the fluffy and snowy bits.  I used a simple gummed poster hanging on the back, now I just need to find a little girl who can make use of this in December!
















Be sure to check out the other fabulous makes by the DT over on the Inspiration blog,you won't be disappointed.

Divas By Design ~ Christmas in July

Whoo hoo, We're on the train to Mums (at least we are if you read this between 10:19am and  2:18pm Wednesday! lol) so I am certainly on my holidays :-) but that doesn't stop it being time for another challenge over at Divas By Design and this week we are celebrating 'Christmas in July' and the DT have made some gorgeous creations to inspire you so be sure to check them out.

I have used a Delicious Doodles image that I love, 'Snowy Postbox' and I thought I'd be a little bit different with my background this time and went for red mirricard which I embossed with a fiskars texture plate, the white doily is a diecut using a Crafty Cutters die from Crafty Sentiments then I added some more red mirricard circles this time embossed with a Cuttlebug snowy scene folder.  Then I added colour just to the postbox using spectrum pencils and finished off with some red peeloff corners and snowflake eyelets.  Now this is a card that sometimes I like and other times I'm really not sure about it!  That'll teach me for trying to be different lol

The DT were lucky enough to be able to play along with some of Rick St Dennis' wonderful images so be sure to check out their fabulous makes.  I have used 'Daffodil' and had a go at colouring the image with the spectrum pencil and blending fluid, I like how it turned out but still need more practice.  I have teamed it up with beautiful paper from Bearly Mine Designs and green cs, a die cut frame and a very old daffodil punch which I bought when they were sold in aid of Marie Curie.  Finished off with a peeloff sentiment.
