Autumn Colours

It's time for a new Sparkles Monthly challenge

the theme this month is 

'autumn colours'

here is my take


I found some lovely autumnal coloured papers in my stash which I die cut into leaves

the mushrooms and pine cones are stamps and the leaves were arranged in a circle (sort of)

the border is red 3D enamel effect and the sentiment is stamped

so have a look at Sparkles Monthly Challenges and make your own autumnal coloured card to enter

see you there

Balloons in the Sky

It's time for a new Cardz 4 Galz challenge

the new theme is

'stencils'

here is my take


I love stencilling a sky like this so any excuse 

The balloons I die cut and stuck some with 3D sticker pads and I arranged them so the smaller ones looked further away than the bigger ones

The sentiment was die cut on pink, glued onto purple card and cut out with scissors.  It was also stuck on with 3D glue pads

So have a look at Cardz for Galz and stencil your own project to enter

see you there

Blue monochrome

It's time for a new Sparkles Monthly Challenge

todays theme is

'Monochrome'

here is my take


I used blue monochrome which I haven't done before, I do like it although it's not quite cheerful enough for a Birthday card so I added the 'thinking of you sentiment' instead which I think works nicely

so have a look at Sparkles Monthly and make your own monochrome papercraft to enter

Seahorses

It's time for a new Cardz 4 Galz Challenge

todays new theme is

'texture'

here is my take


 my 'texture' is embossing the background into bubbly water (actually a snow embossing folder)  

the seahorses, which are a digi stamp from Kinda Cute, were coloured in loosely based on the Ty beanie baby which I used to have

I added more texture with 3d enamel effect for the seaweed and some nuvo glitter drops 

it was finished off with fishy washi tape

so have a look at Cardz 4 Galz and make your own card to enter, just remember we want to see cards for ladies not for men

Christmas Cheer

The new Winter Wonderland challenge starts today 

the theme this month is

'Christmas Feast (food and/or drink)'

we are sponsored by Doctor Digi and the digi stamp I got to play with is Christmas Cheer

here is my take


they do look very cheerful

I decided to use my alcohol embossing folder which I had not used!!

I rubbed ink over the ridges to give it some colour, it didn't quite go as I imagined but I was happy with it 

 I finished off the background with red card and glitter glue

The cheerful guys were coloured, cut out and glued in the centre

and I added a die cut sentiment

so have a look at Winter Wonderland and make your own Christmas card to enter

see you there
