LOTV Snowfall Ski fun

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here to show you a card I have made for one of my male friends, and as you can see I am in love with these new Bo Bunny papers! I used the gorgeous LOTV image stamped in Memento, coloured with Promarkers, gel pens, and Glamour dust glitter. I cut him with a nestie and matted him on Coredinations cardstock. I also used Bo Bunny Snowfall collection papers, and glitter card in complimenting colours punched with a snowflake punch. Lastly I added Card Candy.

Lili of the Valley Christmas Blues

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! Here is a project I adored creating-with my gorgeous new Lili of the Valley stamp I have wanted for ages and the stunning 'Snowfall' papers by Bo Bunny.
I started by colouring the stamped image in Promarkers, Flexmarkers, metallic pen and with a dusting of Crystal Glamour dust as my snow.
I then cut around him with a scalloped nestie-I chose to cut them both with the scalloped ones because it felt like it added movement to the image. He was placed on a Tim Holtz Coredinations mat which complimented the papers. I used one paper mainly and added two strips of other design papers from the stack, then added a Papermania felt snowflake cut in half as a decorative detail-its difficult on male cards not to use flowers! I then added a gold 'Christmas Wishes' greeting in the bottom left hand corner and three Card Candy which complimented the paper in the opposite corner.

My Partner in Crafting Crime-Christmas Tags

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am to show you a matching bag and tag I made for our challenge over at My Partner in Crafting Crime this fortnight. I used a mask, Kraft tag and bag, Distress ink and gold glitter.
I started off imagining this as my background but once I saw their shimmer with the gold glitter I decided it would be a shame to cover their natural beauty up! I sponged distress inks over star masks and then coloured round each star just applying the ink directly. I then chose parts of the star pattern to glitter with gold glitter.

Sarah Hurley Challenge: Buttons

Good morning everyone! Sorry this is late, have not been feeling very well and everything has escaped me! Hope you are all well!
I am here to show you the project I have made for Sarah Hurley's Challenge 'Buttons'. I wanted to try and do something new to get a start on my Christmas presents! I used Sarah Hurley's Wonderland CD, a plain canvas, distress inks, mask, and genuine vintage buttons.
I started by creating the background with sponging distress inks over a mask with make up sponges from the pound shop-the canvas texture eats away at the sponge so its advisable to use one you can throw away after the creation. Next I distressed the bingo cards from the CD, and printed the Alice and White Rabbit images. I cut round the images and placed them in opposite corners, then added the bingo card and vintage buttons as playing pieces. I then added buttons to each corner of the project which didnt have an image.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Forever Friends: Something Old, Something New (Vintage buttons, Mask)
Divas By Design: Monochromatic
Deep Ocean Challenges: Vintage
Everybody Art Challenge: A little present
Paper Sundaes: Digital Images
Fussy and Fancy: Make a Gift
Do You Stack Up: Splash of Blue

Sarah Hurley Challenge: Use more than two images


Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to show you a card I have made for Sarah Hurley's new challenge-use more than two images. I chose the penguins and snowflakes and made a spinning card using the Christmas Cheer CD available here.
I cut an aperture out of the paper and cardstock with my nesties, and used the inside of the circle paper inside of the card as a backdrop for the penguin. I added dental floss between the two penguins and pulled it tight so it would spin within the aperture. I then added ribbon and gems from my stash.
