Its time for Creatalicious!!

Hiya peeps


Its time for a new challenge over at the wonderful

The theme for Challenge #150 is as always, ANYTHING GOES, but with optional embossing (wet or dry).
I havent used the option of any embossing but my
digi image is from our sponsor for this challenge,
 Little Blue Button Stamps and the prize for our winner
will be a $10 voucher to use on their website.

I have made a simple 6x6 inch card using a ready
made card base, It is part of a set of mixed shapes/folds.
The digi image was printed out on to a 225gsm plain white
cardstock, coloured using my pencil crayons, mainly using the metallic colours to give the sheen that I wanted.
I fussy cut out the coloured image out stuck her onto the 
die cut Raspberry coloured circleThat die cut was then mounted on the base card using foam pads.
I added the small ready made bow (using silicone glue gel) and the sentiment (using foam pads) which is a pun on the mermaid, then stuck a piece of blue faint patterned paper on the inside (using double sided tape), all of which
are from my own stash. The final touch was the small sentiment on the inside, which is from Lili Of The Valley 
(printed on to clear printable sticky backed paper, from my own stash)

Its nearly Halloween!!!

  Hiya peeps

Its time for a Halloween card from me and I came
up with this beauty from Aurora Wings, she is called
Halloween Sprite, she was a freebie for a limited
time when you spent over $10 at their website,
here, or on Etsy, here.

The white card is from Papermill Direct, 
A4 sheet folded in half
The green card is from Sizzix which is part of a
60 sheet multi colour pack bought from
 Hochanda Craft Channel and TV shopping
The trees, an all-in-one die, Branched Birch, are
2 lots of die cuts just slightly overlapped from
The moon is just an odd shaped circle cut from a scrap piece of pearlescent & linen effect cardstock.
The toadstools, black cat & sentiment are all from
a stamp set that was free with a craft magazine
that I bought at some point that I cant remember.
I coloured Halloween Sprite using my set of

Newdoer 160 Ultimate Coloured Pencil Set

(that I bought from Amazon earlier in the year).

I also used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle
pen on the stars in the image. That set of 3 (all the same) are widely available from craft stores on the
High Street, Superstores or Websites.

Another card for one of my DT's...

Hiya peeps

Todays card is for a new challenge over at
Our challenges are always Anything Goes
so why not give the challenge a go??

The card I made for you is a 15cm square card made using half a 30cm square piece of cardstock from Crafters Companion. Topped that with a odd blue coloured patterned paper cut down to fit the card.
Folded in half then I added the lilac loopy edge
ribbon to go down the card. I then coloured the
digital image from LeAnn's World 101  and shes
called Cindy, isnt she a delight? I matt & layered
her on a lilac card, then a flower with an
emphisised center on each flower patterned
embossed square and then stuck that, at an angle
with foam pads. The final touches were a few drops
of Buttercup coloured Liquid Pearls and then
Liquid Glass on Cindy's eyes and the bubbles
coming out of the bucket.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges:

New Baby Boy
boxed card that my best friend &

The main hand coloured digital image is from the

delightful Di's Digi Designs and the cute,
lovable image of animals (on the inside fold)
is called "Animal Shelf 2" & available here 
I coloured the whole image in using pencil crayons.

I would love to be able to tell you about any

of the dies that I have used on this card & box,
but, honestly, I cant remember!! (I have that
many and dont keep packaging for them)

Blue baby feet sheer & the baby themed shaped ribbons were bought from an old website.

They might be available from elsewhere...

Organza Pale Yellow, Pale Blue (wider) Satin

and the Blue Bay Washing Line ribbons are all
available from Crafty Ribbons here in the 
West Country, England.

All the items used for this card & box
