Our sponsor for the month of August at Dragonfly Dreams is All Dressed Up.
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 🙂
Just a quick reminder to share your Christmas projects with us at Crafty Boots Challenges this week, for our Christmas in July Challenge.
Once again, my card features a gorgeous kitten image from Aurora Wings, this time in a gift box.
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!!
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!!).
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!
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.
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.
Ricky is the name of this gorgeous boy on my card, from Tiddly Inks.
Ricky comes with two frames as well, and I have used the Polaroid frame, and wanting to keep it clean and simple, I mounted it onto a white card base. The strip of fishing paper along the bottom comes from my stash, and Ricky has been coloured using Copic markers.
You can find the Digi image by clicking here.
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.
This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to use butterflies on our projects, so I have! It was a good excuse to use the gorgeous new Butterflies Thinlits Dies – not that I really need an excuse 🙂
My first card uses some of the Painted Blooms Designer Series Papers, which are just sooooooo beautiful. I didn’t really want to cut it up, but if I don’t it will add to my ever growing stash!
I have cut two butterflies, one from white cardstock and then the top layer from the blue watercoloured paper in the Painted Blooms DSP. The sentiment comes from the new stamp set (which is bundled with the dies) called Butterfly Basics.
Then I did some colouring with Blendabilities, and decided to make the coloured image into another card with lots of butterflies 🙂
This gorgeous image is from Art By MiRan, the papers retired a loooong time ago, and the flowers are from the above mentioned large stash of crafting goodies, and of course, the butterfly was another cut with my new Thinlits. Oh, should I mention Faux Stitching?? 🙂 It hasn’t featured a lot recently, so I thought I high time to bring it back!
I hope you like them, and hope they inspire you to join us with your own butterfly creations at Crafty Boots Challenges.
