Craft Your Passion “All Star” Sports Blog Hop


Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges “All Star” Sports Blog Hop!!


If you have hopped over from Theresa, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to 
Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.
All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.
Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.
Once you have finished the hop & left a comment for everyone, we would like you to create a Sports themed project using at least one STAR and enter it with our Linky tool.
While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy some of the designer’s have to offer you. You don’t want to miss out on any of it!
I’ve made my first interlocking gatefold card.
And here’s what’s on the inside :
I’ve used the adorable Play Ball! from Robyn’s Fetish,one of our fabulous sponsors,and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers .
* Here’s a tip for you.If using something like these star dies it may be better to miss out the one inbetween.This card does open and close but not very smoothly.Not that it matters as I’ve made this for my son so I can help him open it 🙂 All part of the learning process I suppose.*
Next stop by Niina , to see what she has in store for you today.
 Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it’s your turn to show us your “ALL STAR SPORTS” project.
 Make sure to include a STAR somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST September 16 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, September 17th Challenge post.

Dressed to frill!

And a ‘frilling’ time it is!This is an exciting post for me as I was recently chosen to join the Just Some Lines DT!

A little while back I won some of their fabulous images from a challenge I entered,then was completely taken by surprise at being asked to do a GDT tutorial spot for them and now I’m a fully fledged DT member!Maybe it was meant to be!!

So on to the challenge which is Use 2 or More Mediums.There’s the chance to win a brilliant prize or picked as part of the Top 3.If you use a Just Some Lines image you choose to make an anything goes project or play along using the theme.Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.You’ll get to see the other new girls too.There will also be a mid challenge reminder where there be more of the DT’s work on show.

For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Jenny Dress up  from Just Some Lines.I kinda went to town on this one.I’ve spent so much time and money collecting stuff and mostly I just colour with one medium.Maybe if I remember I might add a touch of sparkle,gloss or gel pen highlights.Well now I’m going to list everything I used to dress this girl up…Jenny is coloured with ProMarkers,white gel pen highlights,silver gel pen on her jewellery,her shoes were originally coloured with a Copic Atyou Spica pen but there just wasn’t enough sparkle so I smothered them in Glamour Dust,background coloured with pastel pencils…and finally…placed some tiny dots of Stickles around her.Not really sure if glitter and Stickles count as mediums, especially the former, but I wanted to bling her up.It’s no wonder she’s showing those shoes off!

Here’s a close up :

Papers are a freebie,the message is from a stamp set I won.Perhaps the ink I stamped with could be counted as another medium ;).I added some die cut swirls.Yet another seldom used craft item – oooh I’m bad.Just had to embellish with some Web Ribbon and of course some glamorous gems.

Supplies :

Image : Jenny Dress up by Just Some Lines 
Sentiment : You’re Maaaarvelous Sophia by Paper Pretties
Mediums : ProMarkers,Sakura White Gel Pen,Papermania Silver Gel Pen,Turquoise Copic Atyou Spica Pen,Crystal Glamour Dust,Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils,Diamond Stickles ,Archival Jet Black Ink Pad
