Piping Tilda at Stamp & Create

Stamp & Create with Magnolia have another challenge & this time its a Summer Birthday. Dont forget that as well as the theme, the challenges have a seasonal theme too, so base your creation around summer as well as a birthday. The prize is a Magnolia stamp of your choice.
I have used Piping Tilda & coloured her with Prisma pencils & added Shabby White Frantage over the top. She is mounted onto 2 Spellbinders Nesties & a doily. The paper came from my stash, as did the ribbon, which I lightly coloured with Tea Dye DI. The tag is a Magnolia, onto which I added seam binding & twine. The sentiment is an old QVC kit. The charm & flowers are from my stash & lastly I added Liquid pearls around the edge.

Use Twine at Divas

This weeks challenge over at Divas By Design is ''Use Twine'' & is sponsored by Bugaboo. I chose Gus Old Fart & coloured him with Prisma pencils. I think I went overboard with the twine but hey ho. I attached some twine to the front of the car with a brad to look like he is being led around. The papers are from Molly Bloom Christmas Carnival magazine from last year. The sentiment is also Bugaboo & goes with the image & this I have coloured with Tea Dye TH DI & attached to the card with more twine & another brad. Added a baseball cap charm on more twine & there you have it.

Im back with a Divas card!!

I am finally back with a card after all these weeks!!!!! My crafting mojo completely disappeared because of the illnesses, operations, family deaths & hubbys accident that happened earlier this year. Hubby is still in a leg brace but is able to get around more now & I have 1 last small operation later this month.

This weeks challenge over at Divas By Design is sponsored by Delicious Doodles, who very kindly gave us some images to play with. I chose this one called Fairy Fae.

This challenge is a Bingo board
I have used Embossing. Die Cuts/Punches & Flowers, a diagonal line.

I coloured the image with Promarkers & added a little glitter to the butterfly wings. The papers are from my stash, no idea whose they are. Both the tag & flower are Magnolia die cuts, both of which have Shabby White Frantage on them. There is also another Magnolia die on the bottom, which also has Frantage on it, just below the thin red ribbon. The butterfly punch is MS. A few pearls & a swirly clip complete the card.
