Creative Ladybirds Challenge 5

This is my last month as a member of the Design Team with Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenges, so firstly I would like to thank all of the lovely ladies for sharing this time with me.  I have enjoyed seeing all of your gorgeous projects over the last six months.
Our sponsors for this month are Ikes Art:

and Lacy Sunshine:

My card this month features the beautiful Wren image from Ikes Art.

I have coloured the Wren with Copic markers and then simply mounted onto some retired Stampin’ Up! paper from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack.
I hope you will share you projects with us again this month, at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Happy stamping!
Chris

Creative Ladybirds Challenge #4

Our Sponsor for the month of June at Creative Ladybirds Creations, is Deedee’s Digis.

I have made two cards for your inspiration, the first using the gorgeous Right On Track set of images, and some papers that I picked up from my local craft store.

The second card uses the Cup of Joy set of images.

Both cards have been coloured using Copics markers, and both use up some bits and pieces from my stash of cardmaking goodies.
A big thanks to Deedee’s Digis for sponsoring us this month.  Make sure you play along with us at Creative Ladybirds Creations for your chance to win a shop voucher to the value of $25 from Deedee’s Digis.

Happy stamping!

Creative Ladybirds Challenge Reminder

Just a reminder to join us for the current Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge, there are great Digital images to be won from our sponsors.
I have created a couple of extra cards for this post.

This card uses an image from Lacy Sunshine stamps called Daisy Delitte.  Isn’t she gorgeous? 🙂

And a masculine card featuring the Pocket Watch image from Ikes Art, and using some gorgeous retired Stampin’ Up! papers.
So do please share your projects with us, we love to see what you have been creating!
Happy stamping!

A new month and Blog Hop!

The first day of the month brings heaps of new inspiration from Creative Ladybirds Creations.
Our first sponsor for this month is Moonflower Digistamps.

I chose to work with Unicorn Maiden for this challenge, and definitely found her a challenge to colour!  But she is very beautiful and I just couldn’t resist giving it a try.

The maiden and her unicorn were coloured using Copic Markers, then fussy cut and layered over some white cardstock with shiny stars.  I have given this a hint of colour sponged to make the stars pop out a little. Strangely, the birthday sentiment looks quite crooked in this photo, but it isn’t.
I think I need lots more practice before I give this lovely lady another try!

And just for a bit of fun, we are also having a Blog Hop this month at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Our sponsors for the Blog Hop are:

Enchanted Design Studio

Ikes Art

Lacy Sunshine Stamps

 

My projects for the Blog Hop are:
From Ikes Art I have used the KT Swing image.

Again, the image has been fussy cut after colouring and then adhere onto the stamped background, so that she looks like she is swinging from the tree.  The background images come from the Stampin’ Up! set Sheltering Tree.

And using the Soccer Reggie image from Lacy Sunshine.

The background for this card is just some papers from my stash.

You should have arrived here from the lovely Lena’s Blog, and next for you to visit is the talented Kaylee.  Here is a list of the Design Team involved in the Blog Hop in case you get lost on the way.

Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge 1

Exciting news today! Today is the very first challenge from a new challenge site called Creative Ladybirds Creations, and I am lucky enough to be on the Design Team with a bunch of lovely and talented ladies.

Our challenges are monthly, and will feature different Digital artist each month, and you can win some fabulous prizes from our sponsors, just by entering your own projects into the challenge.
Our first sponsor for this month is Bugaboo Stamps, and I have chosen an image called For You From Me Flower.

Our next sponsor is Lemon Shortbread, and this gorgeous girl is called Winter Gift.

And our third sponsor is Ike’s Art, with this beautiful image called Spanish Dancer.

Lots of purple in this post, I guess I was having a “purple” week or two here 🙂  So often you see the spanish dancers wearing red, so I thought it would be fun to do her wearing a different colour!!  In any case, it is a beautiful image and I loved colouring it.  Perhaps I will try it again, this time in red 🙂
Please come on over and play along with our brand new challenge, which goes until the end of the month – we would love for you to share your projects with us at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Happy stamping!
Chris
