TTCRD anything goes challenge – 5th May 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter.tps_cake

For this I’ve coloured the cake with Chameleon pens (VO2, NU0, YL2, RD4, YO2, BL3, PK3, RD2, YO3, GR2, GR4). Of course the cake has a cherry on top! I chose a backing paper paper from Papermania which had cupcakes on it. I mounted this on a green mat and used the same paper to make a lacy overlay.

CRAFT challenge #554 – Hero

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Star Stampz.

The image was coloured with Chameleon pens (PK4, WG3, BR1, BR5, RD4, WG7, BL3, PK3, CG5, RD2, NG4, NU00, NU2, BV2, NU0, OL3, YG3, GR1, GR2). The background is quite grungy and is stamped with Distress ink blueprint sketch and Stazon black ink.

Such a cute dragon!

CRAFT challenge #553 – Christmas

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

I coloured this image with Chameleon pens (GR2, GR1, NU0, WG3, NU00, PK3, RD4, NU2, RD3, BL2). I then die cut the snowflake flourish edge onto each side of the image and mounted this onto a corresponding background paper. I added gems for some sparkle after all you can’t ever have enough sparkle and added a sentiment.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 7th April 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is Doctor digi house of stamps and Bugaboo.

This first card is using Quackers from Doctor digi house of stamps.

I love these birds. I’ve used them before. This time I colored them with my Conte water colour pencils I’ve had since the 1980’s. They are still going strong despite their age, just like me! I embossed a branch, coloured it with distress inks and the fussy cut it out and used this as a branch to put the bird in on the bold backing paper from papermania. I absolutely love it and this is the card I just gave to my best friend for her birthday!

The second card I’ve made here is using JJ 29 again from Bugaboo.

Again this is an image I’ve used before too. I used it for my mums birthday and it’s one I’m sure I’ll use again. I have used a different colour pallet this time, colouring this with the following Chameleon pens (BL7, BL4, NU2, NU1, PK3, PK4, VO2, BV2, NU00). I mounted this onto a background I made with my gelli plate and a patterned paper sheet from a papermania paper pad that I’ve had forever!

I hope that you like these two digital stamps as much as I do and that you’ll head over and grab them to add to your stash!

CRAFT challenge #550 – Spring/Easter

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsors this time are QKR Stampede and Oddball Art. This image is one from QKR Stampede.

This is such a cute Easter bunny! I’ve coloured this digital image with Chameleon pens (NU1, NU2, NU00, YO2, YO3, GR1, GR2, VO2, NG4, WG7, WG3). I stamped out the Easter eggs and inked them in distress inks shabby shutters and mustard seed. I used the same inks to ink around the topper mat so that there wasn’t a stark white edge and the card blended into the base card background.

I’d like to enter this into the following challenge:

Crimbo Crackers – 207 – Animals (not Christmas, but festive?)

CRAFT challenge #549 – ATG (extra added theme of Christmas animals)

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Jan’s digital stamps.

For this cute image I used Chameleon pens (BG4, YO2, YO3, RD5, BG3, VO2, CG5, PK5, PR4, BL3, RD4, YL2. nG4, BL6) along with Distress ink Mowed Lawn to colour around the mats. The background paper is one I picked up in The Works a little while ago, but I could just imagine that these mischievous penguins weren’t adhering to any ‘elf and safety rules!

I’d like to enter this into:
