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!

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!

Stars or Stripes Reminder

Just a quick post today to remind you to join us at Crafty Boots Challenges for our Stars or Stripes Challenge.
I have used both stars and stripes for my card today.

My card features another great masculine digital image from Tiddly Inks, Golf, which comes as a bonus with the Father’s Day Vintage Truck image.
I have made this card for someone special who has gone above and beyond to help us find our new house (more about that soon!!).
Happy stamping!

Crafty Boots Stars or Stripes

I have gone with some Stripes on my cards for this week’s Crafty Boots Challenge, but you could choose either Stripes, Stars or even both!

This first card uses some retired Stampin’ Up! patterned papers, and features the cute little Ellie digital image from Tiddly Inks, which I have coloured with Copic markers.

My second card also uses a Tiddly Inks digi, called My Dads Truck.  I have left the image un-coloured this time and mounted it on some wide striped papers from the new Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.

So why don’t you come on over to Crafty Boots Challenges and show us your stars or stripes!
Happy stamping!

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.

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!

Black and White Challenge Reminder

A quick reminder tonight, to share your Black and White projects with us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
My card this week uses this wonderful digital image from Imagine That!

I have used a music notes embossing folder for the background with some gorgeous shiny black and silver ribbon.

I am entering my card in the current challenge at Crafty Cardmakers – the challenge is to use a sentiment.
Happy crafting!
Chris
