Anything Goes

I completely forgot to schedule this posting for last Sunday, it had been saved as draft by mistake & therefore did not publish.
Hobbycutz have another challenge & this theme is Anything Goes & is sponsored by several sponsors this time. It runs until 19th January, so there is plenty of time to enter over Christmas.
Fairy Dust Crafts
Bearly Mine Designs
Sassy Studios
I chose to use a Mo Manning image called Facebook & I coloured it with Prisma pencils. The papers were Bo Bunny Smoochable & Crafty Individuals Background Book 1. I added a doily, some lace purchased in Turkey, a feather, again bought in Turkey & La La Land banner die.
The flowers are a mixture from stash, with the fushia made by myself using an Alys Inky Fingers kit bought from Stamparama last February. A couple of flat backed pearls added on the picture mount.
Lastly a little seam binding made into a bow & a Hobbycutz flower, covered in embossing powder completes the card.

Make It Crafty Sprite

Another one of my crafting weekend away makes. The image is freebie given by Zoe over at Make It Crafty & was included in her newsletter, which I have coloured with Prisma pencils.The heart banner die is La La Land. A Magnolia Doohickey die has been used down the side & across the card. I think the paper was out of a Making Cards magazine. Sentiment is a Molly Bloom stamp. A few dew drops complete the card, as well as some ribbon from stash. I added a little bell to the end of his/her hat which jingles when shaken.

Flat Friends Celebrate with Divas

This weeks challenge over at Divas is sponsored by Flat Friends
We were kindly given some images to use & I chose Happy New Year but I cannot see it in the shop at the moment. Coloured with Prismas & I covered the glass with Glossy Accents which has made her clothes inside the glass a slightly different colour to those outside, I quite like the effect, although it was an accident rather than planned lol. Mounted onto a couple of Nesties. The b;lack paper is from stash & the purple balloon paper is Wild Rose Studio Bella pack. Coloured the doily with pastels. I used a Magnolia Doohickey die So Wrapped Lovely, onto which I added organza ribbon. Lace came from a shop in Turkey. Sentiment is computer generated. A few pearls, mini jewels, butterfly charm & flowers from stash complete the card.

Molly Bloom Santa

Another card I made whilst away in Lincolnshire on my crafting weekend. The image is Molly Bloom & coloured with Promarkers. The paper is Magnolia Ink Santa with Christmas Flowers. I have used several dies, a Nellie Snellen multi frame as the mount, which has Ivory Frantage & is edged with TH DI Walnut Stain. Then there is a Magnolia Doohickey tag die, again with the Frantage treatment, as is the Magnolia Doohickey So Wrapped Lovely Heart. Then there is a Marianne tree die, once more Frantaged & then a Whimsey Stamps Holly & Berries die. I created the berries with Docrafts mini jewels. The flowers are from stash, but once more there are another 2 dies used, a Memory Box pin wheel die & a Joy Crafts Vintage Flourish leaf die. I coloured the lace with a Promarker to match & added a little Bakers Twine & a sentiment from blogland. (theres a lot going on with this card but have no more photos as its already been sent out).

Hobbycutz 1st DT piece

Here is my first piece of DT work for Hobbycutz. There is a store over here that sells laser cut goodies for all your cards & scrapbooking work, so go & take a look.
This challenge theme is Christmas Decoration & the sponsor is Limited Runs. I had not come across these stamps before, but she has a great selection & I chose Santas Head to work with.
I started by cutting out 10 Spellbinder scalloped circles out of Magnolia Ink papers, 5 of each & glued them into cones. I then cut out 2 of the same circles & glued them together back to back. Onto this I glued the cones in place to fill the circle.
I then printed off 2 Santas Head & coloured with Promarkers, I used Liquid Pearls on his hat & crystal Glamour Dust on his beard.1st Santa, I placed in middle of cones & the 2nd I attached to some silver chain to allow it to hang down below the cones.
I attached the same chain from the top which you can just see in the picture & there you have my Christmas decoration.

I have covered a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder with Bronze Gilding Wax. Added Memory Box Pine Needle die at the top with a ribbon & bow at the bottom. The sentiment is a Tonic die, again covered with both pearl & bronze gilding wax mounted onto brown card with the edges covered with the bronze gilding wax.
