Three stamps on a card!

Good morning everyone!

Today is a new challenge at inky chicks and its 3 stamps on a card. I LOVED this challenge!

Our sponsor for this challenge is the brilliant-Bunny Zoe Crafts

I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges-

Tildas Town Neighbourhood blog - Merry and Bright
The ABC challenge blog 'V' is for vibrant
The Ribbon Girl Blog  Add sparkle
Time for a Magnolia Challenge Fave colour combo

So for me this challenge i got to do one of my fave techniques and that is masking. Plus it was a great chance to get another Christmas card done.

So I used the gorgeous Magnolia images of Tilda as Angels. The DPs are from Maja. I coloured the girls in Copics and used my Martha steward punch and the dies are from Tim Holtz and Magnolia. The flowers are from WOC and Kaisercraft and I decided that i would try something different and use purple on a Christmas card. The sentiment is from Whimsy and think suits my 3 angels- Joy, Peace and Love. Perfect for them.

I hope you like my card!

Dashing through the snow!

Hey there!

Well its a red hot day here in the Pilbara so i am hiding inside where its so different from Tyneside!!!

Now i love a bit of bling, nothing better than a bit of sparkle in life i say! So i hope this card reflects that.

So i would like to enter my card in the following challenges-

Bunny Zoe Crafts - Animals
Tildas Town  - Merry and Bright Christmas
Time for a Magnolia Challenge - Christmas challenge- Jingle Bells
Divas by design- Festive florals/ Christmas flowers
The Ribbon Girl Blog Add Sparkle

So I used the ever cute little Rudolph for this card. The little guy is just adorable. I coloured him with Copics and added some Shabby White Fran-tage so it looks like he is dashing through the snow, and of course a bit of gold glitter

.I used the gorgeous Magnolia dies for the edging on the top of the Criss cross. I added red tabs to the insert so it can be seen that it lifts out.

Now how yummy is this lace ! <3 its just beautiful and has to be my fave! The DPs are from the gorgeous Maja. Swoooooon! <3!

The flowers, twists and berries are a selection from Kaisercraft and WOC. The sentiment is from Whimsy.

Now you know how you always hear Santa's reindeer right, well had to give the little guy some bells and they are tucked on the flowers. I added perfect pearls to the die cut trees. To finish off I aded a fabby charm saying North Pole on a wee little after this little guy and his friends have finished their rounds he will defo need to get back home!

Now I hope you like my card. Enjoy your day.

Pretty in pink


Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far? Stormy weather here, can feel it building so perfect day to craft.

I am entering my card in the following challenges-

Divas by Design - Texture (i used mesh behind the DPs, pom pom trim and some skeleton leaves)
In the Pink - Spots or stripes
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog - For a friend
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia - Use 3 different embellishments
Magnolia Forever Challenge Blog - Pink
ABC Challenge Blog - 'V' is for Vibrant

So for this challenge I thought 'why not try something different' and ive been itching to try the embossing the image with white and then colouring with DI's. So after a couple of images i wass hooked!!!!

So I used Summer Flower Tilda she is embossed and coloured with DI's. The papers have these gorgeous poker dots on them, and are from the Kaisercraft collection called 'Pitter Patter'. I layered up the papers and added in a doily to add another layer to it. I used pink pom pom trim, some bright fuchsia mesh behind the main image and a fuchsia skeleton leaf to add some texture. The flowers are from WOC and Kiasercraft.

The 3 embellies I used are - a skeleton leaf, a resin lock from Melissa Frances, and some pink brads.

I then used a lovely pale pink ribbon which has white poker dots on it and matches the DPs. The Lace is a shade brighter and is from my stash. I used this gorgeous rhinestone ribbon along the top.  Then tied an organza ribbon.The sentiment reads 'For a sweet friend' and is from La La Land Crafts.

 Finally, I added some rhinestone hearts, and some shocking pink rhinestones as these look a bit like dots.

I hope you like my card.

So I used the very cute summer flower Tilda. I have been looking for her everywhere and finally tracked her down! Yay! I coloured Tilda with Copics. The DPs are from the awesome Maja- just love them! The shape of the card is cute from a Go Kreate die. The flowers are a mix of Kaisercraft and WOC and under the rolled rose you can see a pale pink material doily which is from Kaisercraft. I used Magnolia postage stamps around the edge of the main image, stamped in DI 'scattered straw'.

Edwin does Christmas

Good afternoon!

I am here today with Edwin! He is all wrapped up in Christmas fever so much so he got tangled in the lights! hehe! Male cards are hard but male Christmas card wow are even harder so this was my challenge to myself to make a card for a male for Christmas

So I coloured my Edwin with Copics. I used DPs from LOTV's collection a' Twas the night'. I thought these papers were pretty cool for a guy Christmas card as there is a lot of denim style papers.  I used dies from La La Land Crafts and Impression Obsession. I love the die of the lights which i have placed down the side. I also used the die of the holly and berries and popped this around Edwin to tie in with the paper. The star on his Christmas jumper is a rub on from Kaisercraft from way back.  I used flowers from WOC and Kaisercraft and a ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is also from LOTV. The little embellies of Christmas lights are from Dress it up.

The sentiment on the inside is from Magnolia and I tied it together with some holly and berries again. To finish i added some red, green and clear rhinestones and some glitter glue to the lights die and the lights Edwin is holding.

Hope you like the little guy.
