Charming challenge at Emerald Faeries

Yes its time for a new challenge over at Emerald Faeries and for this fortnight we are looking for your charms.  I love charms but always end up forgetting I've got them until its too late! lol but I remembered in time for this card, in fact my charm was the inspiration for my card.  I bought the little shoe from 'claire's' a few years ago coz I thought it was sweet and I was sure I'd be able to make use of it!  Well I finally have!  My Emerald Faerie image for this card is Kayla & Twinkie which is available at the A&T Digital Designs Shop along with the little stamp sentiment (quick tip - I used the small hole maker on my crop-a-dile to punch the ticket edge).  I have coloured the image with copics and my papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, ribbon and charm from my stash and I finished off with some rolled flowers made from some of the backing paper.  So don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see what the amazing DT have been up to and then lets see your charms, you've got 2 weeks remember.

Lets recycle with Crafty Sentiments

Yes we want to see you recycling with us over at Crafty Sentiments this week.  For my recycled item I used an old CD as my base and decorated it using paper from Bearly Mind Designs and the cute Penguin is a recent digi release from Crafty Sentiments Designs which you can find in the store.  Coloured with copics and matted on to some gold glitter card.  I added the gold snowflake brads using my crop-a-dile and went through the cd before I covered the back again in paper from BMD and to that I added a Christmas Sentiment digi stamp also available at Crafty Sentiments Designs Store.  Finished off with some funky fibres from my stash and hey presto a christmas decoration.  Actually I might do a few more of these, it was fun and I have loads of defunct cds! lol

Bingo time at A & T Digital Designs Challenge

Hi there well over at A&T Digital Designs Challenge this fortnight we have a great Bingo table for you to play along with.

I have chosen to use the line Flourish, ribbon & Die cut and my image is the recently released Happy Holidays sentiment circle which is available at the A&T Digital Designs Store and I have coloured it with copics and then inked to distress as I wanted it to look more vintagey to go with the Bo Bunny papers I have used.  The green doily die cut is a Crafty Cutters die from Crafty Sentiments.  The flourishes in the corners are also Bo Bunny then I added some ribbon and card candi from my stash.  Hope you like it and I hope that you will join in with our challenge, don't forget you have 2 weeks to take part.

Meet Mia

Hi there, I'd like to introduce you to Mia, she is a fab new digi image who is now available over at Crafty Sentiments Designs and she is a dream to colour.  I have used my copics to colour her and then fussy cut her to mount her onto a fab background paper from Bearly Mine Designs to which I have added some glamour dust and finished off with some white sparkly fibre and a pc generated sentiment. I really had fun putting this together and the sparkle from the glamour dust when it catches the light is really pretty.

Anything Goes at Crafty Sentiments

Good morning, its Tuesday so that means it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Sentiments and this week Caz has chosen the theme of 'Anything Goes' one we all love, so without further ado let me get onto my project for this week.

I chose to make a bookmark and as it is Breast Cancer Awareness week I decided to use the 'Hope' stamp which is available at Crafty Sentiments Designs.  I also opted to colour it pink and just added a little green and purple with my sakura stardust pens.  The edges have been punched with the Tonic Studio border system.  It should also have a tiny magnet inside to hold it closed around the page but typically I can't find the magnets at the mo so will have to add them when they decide to come out of hiding! lol

(more to be added when I get home from work!)

Thanks for stopping by and please check out the amazing work by the DT over at Crafty Sentiments, you wont be disappointed.
