Season's Greetings Challenge #2

Are you ready to start on your Christmas Stash?

Did you join in last fortnight with our First Challenge?
Great projects by Team Kangaroo, and now you get to see mine and my fellow Koala's projects:



As it suggests, it is optional to use the twist, which this Challenge are the colours as listed - use one, two, all or none! Your call, after all it is Anything Goes with any imagine or stamp in your stash.
The only thing you have to remember is that it does have to be a Christmas Project.

I made an Easel Card using the colour combo as a guide.



I used a Saturated Canary digital image called Hanging Stockings and coloured her with my Copic Markers.
I love her images but unfortunately you can no longer buy them. However, I did sign up for her Exclusive Yearly Subscription, so I get 4 new ones each month, yay! So expect to see some more pop up from time to time. This was one of the ones from October 2016.

Of course I had to use some Jaded Blossom Stamps dies! which are:
Small button tree from Christmas Dies, Large and medium Christmas tress plus wording from Christmas Dies 2, Coffee cup button from Coffee Dies, and I used the Border Dies 2 for the wave along both sides of my picture.

The white label is from the retired Stampin Up set called Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies.

Card stock is Stampin Up and Pattern Paper is from my stash, sorry I have no idea who made it or what's it called.

Ok, so now you have until the 11th of March to submit your entry here!

I am entering her in the following Challenges:

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Teacup Yorkie!

I'm back with Jo and the girls at Jo's Scrap Shack for the Fun~day Friday Challenge.
So once again, every two weeks you will see some inspiration from me using the various Sponsors images. 

One thing that has changed since I was on the Team last year is that now ALL the Challenges are Anything Goes....ya! no excuses now not to be joining in!

This week's Challenge:
Starts: Friday, Feb 24th  12:00AM
 Ends:   Friday, Mar 3rd 6:00PM
(Eastern USA time)

This week's Sponsor is The Paper Shelter.

The Paper Shelter

I got the chance to use Teacup Yorkie - Love, Love, Love this!

Coloured up with Copic Markers, die is from Jaded Blossom's Scallop Caddy Die set
and sentiment from SU's Rose Wonder stamp set.


Ekkkkkkkk!!! I used the pre-coloured image and added another Yorkie either side and coloured with Copic Markers. Yes! that patterned paper comes in the set too!


I just couldn't stop myself, I also made a treat bag using Jaded Blossom's Scallop Caddy Die set and added the pre-coloured image. Tag is from Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies 2 set and sentiment from SU's Simply Sketched stamp set.


And then I made a Note Card using the other pre-printed image which incorporates the patterned paper! Again I used Jaded Blossom's Scallop Caddy Die set.



Ekkkkkkkkkkk Seriously!!!!! You have to check out this set over at The Paper Shelter.
I am super, super, super impressed with it (if you couldn't tell!) and it is such incredible value for only a few dollars!

Lamb Of God Easter Card

Here's my next Guest Designer project for Imagine That Digistamp Creative Playground Blog.


This fortnight I have used Lamb of God with Paris in Summer Digi Papers.


I used the 3rd top paper to the right. It is a bit hard to tell from the promo pic as I actually cropped that part off! LOL, the Eiffel Tower actually wasn't built way back then. 


The butterflies paper is from my over abundant Stampin Up stash!
You know that's the great thing with digi papers - use what you need when you need, little to no wastage, and no storage needed!

Remember to join in the Participation Challenge over at the Creative Playground Blog as everyone who uses an Imagine That Digistamp image gets the Featured Monthly set Frogs in Love for FREE.


Hope to see you by the slide - tired of the swings!

Thanks for looking,

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Big Girl Bloomers

Over at Bloobel Stamps Facebook Group we are having a bit of fun with Shelley Lanthier, who came up with the idea to do a colour along just for fun and camaraderie.

No automatic alt text available.

Well, we decided to colour up the Big Girls Bloomers. I suggested that Shelley do her in Purple Monotones - so though it only right that I do it too!


Bahahahaha she looks fierce with her purple zombie skin!
I for one don't want to mess with her!
I must say it was a lot of fun and no pressure! I think she looks great in purples!

You still have time to join in if you want, hope tp see how you colour her up.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Honey Bunny Tag

I had such fun yesterday making my Foxy Valentine tag that while I had my Jaded Blossom stamps and dies out, I went ahead and made another tag!
Well I did have 2 Toblerone Bars and the other one was feeling left out, LOL!



Oh my, love how she turned out!

So this time the Jaded Blossom products I used were the Treat Tag Die along with Honey Bunny stamp set and the sentiment is from Foxy stamp set. Coloured of course with my copic markers.

I can see I need to be playing with my JB stamp sets a bit more!!!!! What do you think?
