  1. 'Where the heart is' - challenge blog has another challenge starting today.  

    Theme - Christmas colours
    Sponsor - That Craft Place - https://www.etsy.com/shop/ThatCraftPlaceLtd                                

    Although the theme for this challenge was 'Christmas colours' i had selected a genral image from 'The Craft Place' that can be used all year round so i chose not to follow the christmas colours theme. I hope this image gives you an idea of how great the digi images are though.

    There is another challenge over at The Creative Craft Cottage.

    This time the sponsor is 'My Stitch back in twine' - They have some fantastic digi stamps available head over and take a look.

    I chose to use this cute butterfly image. I coloured the image using my spectrum noirs and then an overcoat of spectrum noir sparkle. It is hard to show in a photo but it is very sparkly! Once i completed the card i decided to create some coordinating gift boxes which i expect i will fill with sweets!

    I have been working with the Gorjuss die cuts again recently and decided to team this calm pastel Gorjuss girl image up with a 6 x 6in card from the Owl Folk range. The style of the card with its white feathers on a pale beige colour created a great background for the Gorjuss girl. I used a coordinating ribbon bow and two buttons from the Gorjuss charm pack to finish the card.
    Simple but pretty i think. What do you think?

    Swans in love.

    I used one of the free stamps i recieved in one of the magazines i'm subscriped too (i'll double check which and update this) to create the swan image. I then used my heart nesting die from the Xcut range. I coloured the image with my Sdpectrum Noir pens before using my Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen on the swans to give them a glitzy shene. Although you cannot see it in the photo  it looks magical.

    I used a 6 x 6in Owk Folk card base and finished the design using 'Denim Blue' range dome dots. Although a simple design it is really effective. I do hope you like it.

    Mr. Mister range is back out of the box!

    Although this range came out around fathers day i have been using the different elements to create birthday cards suitable for males. I get so many requests for male cards that i sometimes find it difficult to think of simple but effect cards i can whip up for the shop. I started playing around with the decoupage elements of the Mr. Mister range and came up with these two simple designs that i'm really pleased with.

    I used a happy birthday die cut on one of the cards from the Classic Decadance range that worked well with the Mr. Mister range. I used some of the blue dome dots from the 'Denim blue' range to finish one of the cards.
