Seasonal Fun Challenge

This card is for the CDAC Seasonal Fun Challenge. Your creation had to show what the season was where you live. For me it's summer down under and this freebie digital image from Hambo stamps was perfect. I do love this cool cat. Coloured him with copics then mounted it on PP,  red CS and a blue card. Embellished it with Kaiser banner stamp, some old stickers, twine and X-cut border punch strips.
Copics: Cat E33, E35, E37, E79. Thongs E08, E09, R14, Y15. Glass B0000, B000.

Easy as 1-2-3 Challenge

All the new challenges have started over on CDAC and this is my card for the  1-2-3 Challenge. We had to have 1flower, 2 design papers, 3 pieces of bling. My image, carnation from Nina B was printed twice, coloured with copics, then just the flower was fussy cut out.  Spellbinders circle die used to cut one out and mounted the flower on top. This was then mounted on a Nellie Snellen patterned circle die. PP is from Prima Botanicals 6 X 6 pad, CS from DCWV, Kaiser bling and lace from stash.

Copics: R81, R85, R89  G82, G85.

The original is here. The PP is a scrap from Kaiser.

Lady Anne's Progressive Challenge

O little Town of bethehem

My second card for this challenge is also from Crafting with Jack and is a digital image. It is coloured with prisma pencils and mounted on CS . I printed the image twice, once on white then yellow CS and cut out the large star and sentiment and mounted them with dimensionals. Thought it needed just a little something more and this palm tree brad seemed perfect. Sorry but I didn't take note of the pencils.

Poinsettias and Candle.

In my quest to have my Christmas cards done well before Christmas I am participating in Lady Anne's Progressive Challenge.

Friday Sketch Large card

This week on the challenge at Paper Craft Planet we were asked to try a large card measuring 71/4 by 4. For me this was fun as I do a few especially for Christmas. This CAS card was quick and easy using a cuttlebug die and embossing folder that I then sanded. It was mounted on kraft CS and the PP is from the reject shop. Added a button with twine and ribbon. Love the clean look of this.

Anything Goes

My card today is for the challenge on Tiddly Inks. The images are Magda from Dragon Friend stamp set and suitcases. I coloured the image with copics, mounted it on DCWV textured CS, PP is designed by Rachel Harper, Let's fly Away, for Quick cards. Lace from stash, computer generated sentiment and spellbinders dies completes the card.

Copics used: Skin: E000, E11, E51,  R20. Hair: R02, R05, E07, E09. Dress: BG15, BG23, BG49, BG53. Shoes: E25, E27, E31, E35. Suitcase Top & Bottom: E33, E35, E37, C3.
Suitcase Middle: E70, E71, E74, C3

The second was just for fun. Water-coloured this stamp from Stamp-it ages ago and finally made a card with it. All the CS is left over pieces, used Martha Stewart border punch, Kaiser bling and organza ribbon. The sentiment is computer generated.

Annabelle Stamps Colour Challenge

Annabelle Stamps colour challenge this week was to use
the colours below

Here is what I came up with. Stamped the image from Squared posies twice and coloured with distress inks. Sentiment also from the same set.  Cut flower from one and mounted it over the other, then mounted it on spellbinder die and on to card. The PP is a Scrap and ribbon from Hobby sew.  

Haven't done the Cuttlebug challenge over on Paper Craft Planet for ages so decided to enter that as well. Had fun with it and this is the result. Had to use a new die and I love my new tessatine border die from Memory Box. The stamp is from Gina K and sentiment is computer generated.

January 2013 card challenges
The criteria was to use your copics and this is the result.Cut the image with oval spellbinders, PP scraps and hemp twine.
The second was done for AnnaBelle Stamps  topical Tuesday challenge to use one of the digi stamps. I have made a resolution to do at least one Christmas card a week and this was perfect. Coloured with watercolour pencils and used scraps left from my Christmas cards ( I need to clean my desk) and book binding ribbon.

I guess I should start over this year and try to do more on my blog. I know I will never do it regular but my resolution is at least once, no twice a week to post something. The coasters  were supposed to be for my DD but never sealed them so a birthday gift done. The paper is old could be Basic Grey, stamps from Essentials Collection Wildflower and Essentials 3 Co llections Butterflies. So simple and easy to make.
