Dragonfly Dreams August Challenge

Our sponsor for the month of August at Dragonfly Dreams is All Dressed Up.

All dressed up Stamps

Since the theme this month is Must Have Wings, I have chosen to use the gorgeous free image, Butterflies.

I have printed the image on to some retired Stampin’ Up! patterned papers and then coloured the image with Copic Markers.  Such pretty butterflies!
I hope you will join us at Dragonfly Dreams Challenges, and share your winged projects :)
Happy stamping!

Simply Papercraft Challenge

This fortnight our sponsors at Simply Papercraft Challenges are:
Stitchy Bear Stamps

and Faery Ink


The image I have chosen from Faery Ink is called Soulful Singer.

I have coloured her with Copic Markers, then layered the image over some silver and white cardstock which I have run through the Big Shot with embossing folders.
And for my second card, I have used the Musical Notes images from Stitchy Bear Stamps.

The duke box is a stamp that came with a magazine, which I have coloured with Copic Markers, and then stamped the sentiment using a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp.
Thanks to our fabulous sponsors for this fortnights challenge.  Please share you work with us at Simply Papercraft Challenges, we love to see what you have been creating.
Happy stamping!

The Male Room – Spots and Stripes

For the next couple of weeks at The Male Room we want your masculine style projects to include SPOTS AND STRIPES.  Don’t forget you can make any type of papercraft project – but it must be for the men in our lives – both young and old.

CHALLENGE#15

I have used some polka dot papers for my background and then layered some strips of cardstock in various colours on an angle over the patterned papers.  Such a great way to use up some of those strips that we all seem to collect.

The car stamp and the sentiment were freebies from a magazine I bought recently.  Both the car and the “Happy” have been fussy cut and mounted on dimensional tape.
I hope you will join in with our challenge at The Male Room.
Happy stamping,
Chris

Christmas in July at Crafty Boots

This week at Crafty Boots Challenges we are doing Christmas in July.  I have to admit that it has certainly been cold enough here in this part of Australia this winter and we have had falls of snow a number of times.  We don’t normally have a white Christmas in Australia, so it is nice to be reminded of what a traditional Christmas feels like.

My card for today’s challenge features this gorgeous Kitten in a Stocking image from Aurora Wings.  The image has been coloured with Copic Markers, then fussy cut and mounted over some silver cardstock.
I hope you will share your Christmas cards with us at Crafty Boots Challenges – it’s never too early to get started on those Christmas cards!!
Happy Stamping!
Chris

Simply Papercrafts Challenge 9

Our sponsors for this fortnight at Simply Papercraft Challenges are A Day For Daisies:

and Sassy Studios Designs:

I have made two cards for this challenge, the first using the image from A Day For Daisies called Feeding The Birds.

I have printed the image onto colouring cardstock and coloured it using Copic Markers, then watercoloured the background using ink pads and an aqua painter.  I have stamped the splotches using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (Stampin’ Up!).

My second card uses the Day in The Park image from Sassy Studio Designs.

Again, the image was printed and then coloured with Copic Markers, and then stamped using the Sheltering Tree stamp set for the background.
Happy stamping!

Crafty Girlz Challenges

This month at Crafty Girlz Challenges our sponsor is Stitchy Bears:

I have used the A Bird Among The Branches image for my card.

This is such a beautiful image, that I wanted it to be the feature of my card, so I have kept the card very simple.  The image had been coloured with Copic Markers.
Make sure you join us and share your creations with us at Crafty Girlz challenges this month.
Happy Stamping!
