At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Let’s Play Dress Up.We have the fabulous Stamp Fairy as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the super cute Toby SpringFairy by Stamp Fairy and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.For an extra special touch I’ve paper pieced his dress and,of course,added some Glamour Dust.Ain’t he pretty?!I decided to create a card with a little white space for a change.I dug out these papers from my stash as I thought the colours would give a fresh,Springlike feel.I used one of my favourite but seldom used punches on the purple layer of card and decorated the centre of each flower with a gem.I layered up 3 different types of ribbon and topped then with a bow.The sentiment has been stamped directly on to the card base and more Glamour Dust has been applied to the stars at either end of the words.

Flying high!

Just a reminder that the Anything Goes challenge at Just Some Lines  is still open.You could be in the running for a super prize.You need play along with a Just Some Lines image to enter and one random winner will get 4 digi stamps of their choice.It doesn’t stop there tho’ as the Top 3 will get one digi stamp each too!There is a freebie to get you started too or you can choose one from Just Some Lines here.

For my card I’ve used Flying High by Just Some Lines and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I thought it would be interesting to make an easel card with an acetate back piece to make her zoom through the air 🙂 As it can be difficult to glue acetate without the adhesive showing through I adhered the cloud paper over the top.This also hid the white base card.I die cut a few clouds and added those as well.I chose some other papers from the same K & Co collection to make up the rest of the card along with a strip of coordinating card.I simply printed the wording on the computer and after cutting in to a banner shape I embellished it with a button threaded with paper twine.

Huge apologies to all at Just Some Lines DT.I’m late posting my card…I’ve gone down with a rather nasty virus and haven’t been able to venture out of bed much…sorry 😦

Shiny Shoes

Pauline our host for this week at Willow Sketchie Challenge has provided this fabby sketch :

The theme is Sparkle & Shine.You can choose either the sketch,theme or both to play along.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

I’ve used New Shoes coloured digital stamp by Willow Designs for my card.Although it doesn’t show in the pic the image has been coated with Spray & Shine and is actually quite glossy.Both backing papers were sprayed with Spray & Sparkle but again the camera hasn’t picked that up too well either.What’s the secret,eh?I have used some pearlescent textured card that has managed to catch the light.I’ve finished the card with some black gemstones.

I mirrored the sketch but as  I was doing it from memory I didn’t realise til afterwards I hadn’t cut the panel behind the image large enough 😦 Ah well,will try harder next time!

Just a reminder that there’s still time to apply for the DT Call at Willow Sketchie Challenge.All the details can be found here.

A little something I created for the Stamp Something sketch challenge.

Here’s the sketch:

As you can see I followed it exactly.This is the first outing of this gorgeous little lady.She’s from the Kawaii Kokeshi set by Banana Frog.I managed to track them down here.Coloured with Promarkers.I’ve also drawn white gel pen highlights in her hair which I then covered in clear glaze pen for added shine.The papers are K & Co and the red card is Papermania Textured.Edges have been distressed and I’ve been playing with some new ‘toys’.The red card has been passed through my Big Shot with Spellbinders Pebbles Impressabilities and then sanded.The left hand edge of the card the image is stamped on has been punched with E K Success Dotted Wave Edger Punch.
