Owl

Today is a Sparkles Monthly day

the new theme is

'owls'

here is my take


 

I designed and made my owl scene with my cricut and is simply layers of different coloured card

I also made the background paper using stamps and different coloured inks, although most of it ended up being covered up! so I prettied up the envelope with some offcuts

The sentiment was in my stash

so have a look at Sparkles Monthly and make your own owl paper craft project to enter

Meowy Christmas

Today is the start of the new Winter Wonderland challenge

the new theme is

'Christmas Animals'

The sponsor this month is All Dressed Up Stamps

the image I got to play with is Meowy Christmas

here is my take


 I printed and coloured the image and die cut it with an oval die and I used a bigger die for the red frame

Finding the background was hard as I didn't have anything I liked until I found this snowflake tissue paper.  I wasn't sure if you could just glue down tissue paper but I tried it anyway and it worked fine

so have a look at Winter Wonderland and make your own animal themed paper craft project to enter

see you there

Beachy

 Today is the new Sparkles Monthly Challenge

the new theme is

'on the beach'

here is my take


This is a set of inchies (1 inch square) which I made for a swap on Facebook

They are mostly stamped images which I coloured and added 3d enamel effect

The fish is cut out and glued to a background which I made and hand drew the seaweed

The ice cream is washi tape with a patterned paper background and a shell sticker

and the beach ball is a sticker on another of my home made backgrounds

So have a look at Sparkles Monthly and make your own beachy papercraft project to enter

see you there
