Crafting With An Attitude!!

Today is my very first as part of the Design Team at Crafting With An Attitude Challenges.  Don’t you just love that name? 🙂
Our sponsor for this month’s challenge is Sassy Studios Designs:

And here is my card, using the Masquerade Ball Sassy image.

MasqueradeBallSassy

I have coloured my Sassy lady using Copic Markers, before fussy cutting the image out with some paper snips.  The background image is the Grand Stairway from Make It Crafty, which has been very lightly coloured before Sassy lady was layered over the top using some dimensional tape.
Why not join us in April at Crafting With An Attitude, for your chance to win some gorgeous Sassy Studio Design images.
Happy stamping!

Creative Ladybirds Challenge 2

We have two wonderful sponsors this month for the Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge number 2, they are Oddball Art and Stitchy Bears.

My first card features a Duet image from Stitchy Bears, which is just so cute!

I kept the rest of the card simple so that the image is very much the focal point of the card, just using some music note papers from my stash.
And my second card features another gorgeous image, this sweet fairy with her dragonfly from Oddball Art.

Again, I have used some patterned papers from my stash in the background, coloured the image and then fussy cut it and layered it onto the card.
I do hope you will join in with our month challenge at Creative Ladybirds Creations, we love to see all of your wonderful projects.
Happy stamping!

Message In The Bottle

Another “Under Water” card today, for the challenge at The Male Room.
I like this challenge, this one had me thinking of all sorts of things to try out!  For my card today, I have used a Digital image from Make It Crafty, of a message in a bottle.

The image has been coloured using Copic markers, and then to make it look more like it was underwater, I have layered over the top, an Acetate Photo Filter Frame from the Project Life “Let’s Get Away” Accessory Pack. The photo filter adds that blue, green, yellow colour over the colouring and gives it a little more depth and interest.
Behind the main image, I have stamped some tiny fish and starfish (which are a little difficult to see in the photo), using the Stampin’ Up! Sea Street stamp set.

Happy stamping!

Spring Challenge Reminder

A quick post today with a reminder about the Crafty Boots “Spring” Challenge.

My card features the beautiful stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue called Indescribable Gift.  It is a beautiful stamp for colouring, I think I might have to try it in some different colours too 🙂  The circle with the coloured image has been layered over some of the Irresistibly Yours Specialty papers from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  The photo hasn’t shown the background paper up very well, this is one card that is definitely better in real life than in the photo!!

Hoping you will share some of your spring projects with us, at Crafty Boots Challenges – we love to see what you have come up with.
Happy stamping!

Colouring Inspiration

I have two projects to share with you today, both coloured using Blendabilities, and both using gorgeous Cute As A Button images.
Firstly, I have covered on of the large Stampin’ Up! Kraft Journals.

Jan Inspiration Project 2

The image has been coloured and then fussy cut, and then layered onto the black background so that the colours are really vibrant.  I have punched some stars out of the black layer and then added a layer of Gold Foil sheet behind the black.

I have also made a card. I just adore this “buttons girl”, and really enjoyed colouring her. 🙂

Jan Inspiration Project 1

The strip of patterned paper comes from the new Stampin’ Up! Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack – lots of gorgeous papers!

Colouring with Blendabilities

Two posts in one day, what?????? 🙂
I know, however I just wanted to share some colouring that I have been doing today with my Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities.
I have been learning some new colouring techniques and today the lovely ladies at Kit and Clowder held a colour pallet competition, using this fabulous image from Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.

I have used the Rich Razzleberry and Coastal Cabana Blendabilites, along with the Skin Tone Collection. The pearls in the corner have also been coloured with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities.

Hope you are having a crafty weekend.
Happy stamping!

Winter Fun

Firstly, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, whether you are in Australia and having a warm Christmas with lots of salads and cold desserts, or on the other side of the planet and enjoying some traditional Christmas food to warm you up, I hope it was a special day!

Today I am sharing with you a card that is something a little different for me, which I made for our Crafty Boots Winter Wonderland challenge.
I didn’t want to make another Christmas card, since Christmas is done for this year (although we are still getting through the leftovers, and playing with new toys!!), so I had a think about something fun to do in the snow.  Then I went searching for a digi image that I could colour, and here is the end result.

I have used my Blendabilities to colour this image from S.W.A.L.K.  Isn’t it just too cute?

So now you can join in with this challenge too, it doesn’t have to be just about Christmas! 🙂

Happy stamping!
