Phyllis

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors.

I am here again with my second  DT post of the day.


Hope everything is going well for you all?

Welcome back for another challenge over at

 Dream Valley 

The challenge runs every fortnight , posted every other Monday.

The theme for this fortnight's challenge is 

    CHRISTMAS     

    and we are sponsored this fortnight by

For my card I have used the image Phyllis the Festive Fairy
don't you think she is fab?  
from Dr Digi Images and you can get her by clicking
on the link HERE


DETAILS

1. Using a 7 x7 card I matted it with red mirri card that I have
embossed. Before adhering it to the card I wrapped a piece
of Christmas Ribbon across the top and secured at the back.

2. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured with
Copic markers and Spectrum Noir's new glitter pens. To her
wand I have added a little red star shaped gem.  The image
was then die cut, I stamped some snowflakes and heat
embossed  them with Chloe's embossing powered . I then
 adhered to the card with foam tape.

3. Using white card I die cut the poinsettia and Christmas 
     flourished from Tattered Lace dies and then rubbed  silver
gilding wax all over them before adhering to the card.

Well everyone that's is me done and dusted, going to
have a little break now but I will be back crafting
in the New Year and I hope you will join me then.

So my friends all that remains is for me
the wish you all
A Very Happy Christmas and a Joyful New Year

Until Next Time
As Always

Promise Of Spring

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

How are we all keeping. I hope happy and well?

Well here we are into December and Christmas is defiantly
just around the corner. Hope you are all ready and are
not getting too stressed out by it all.


It's time once again for a new challenge to begin over at


The theme is as always  Anything Goes 

We have three sponsors for this challenge and they are:-

Sami Stamps



Prize $ 12 Gift Certificate


Michele R Designs
Designer Paper Sets


Prize €10 Euro Gift Voucher


Deedee's Digi Images


Prize $10 Gift Certificate


For my DT make I have used the gorgeous paper sets from
Michel R Designs Summer Meadow Elements Pack 2 which are just the
some of the prettiest I have seen and you can find them HERE
We were asked to choose any image that has been used
in our challenge over the past 12 months and I have
chosen Ching Chou Kuik's Spring Bouquet as I think she
works perfectly with these fabulous papers.

DETAILS

1. Card size is 8 x8 and to this I have covered the front with the
spotty paper from the pack.

2. I then took two of the flower papers and die cut different
            shapes, you can just make out the two colours (pink and Lilac)

3. Still with the same paper pack I cut three post cards and
layered them at different angles on the top part of the
card. Two banner strips added along the bottom also
in the collection you get small envelopes and I used
one on the side and added a lilac flower from my stash.
Two tickets added to the inside of the envelope.
This pack is perfect to created cards as you get all
the embellishments included. Still with the pack
I made the bow and printed off the banner.

4. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured
this time with my Spectrum Noir Pencils. I have had
these for some time but I was not confident to use but
I don't think I have done a bad job.  I then die cut the
 image and distressed the edges with a pink ink pad.
I created another frame from pink mirri card and
mounted the image onto it.

To complete I went back to the paper collection and
selected the Happy Birthday sentiment, adhered to
the card with foam tape.

Well my friends, I hope to see your creations over on
our challenge blog and would just like to take this
opportunity to wish each and everyone of you and
your families

A Very Merry Christmas and New Year

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting

Lets Celebrate

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, followers and Visitor's

Welcome to my latest follower Crafty Stamper, thank you for joining
my little  band.

Its finally here, the busy busy month of December, I hope you are not
to stressed out and am on track with your cards and presents.  I cannot
believe that I am actually on track, cards all made presents all bought
just need to write out the cards (a job I hate doing as I try to make all
my cards different and then its sitting there looking at them deciding
which card would suit who) 
I keep telling myself pick on style and make them all the same, maybe
on day I will listen.

Anyway enough of that lets get down to today's post, its time for
our new challenge to begin over at 


and we are using your favourite theme of

ANYTHING GOES

We are sponsored this week by


Prize $10 Gift Certificate


and


Prize 3 images of winners choice.

The girls on the design team have created some cracking cards
and it would be great if you pay a visit to the blog and have
a scan around and maybe leave a comment or two.

My card has been created using the dig Celebrating Your Day
from Art By Miran and you can purchase her HERE.
She is such a cute image and I really enjoyed colouring her.

Please forgive the photo as its turned out a little on the
dark side, don't know why as it was fine when I took it,
think the little Mac gremlins have been out playing LOL.

.
DETAILS

1. Started with a 7 x 7 scalloped edge card and matted it with
     black card, next matted it with a lovely sparkly paper from
the paper pad Serenity by Trimcraft.

 2. Next I die cut three panels and embossed each one with  a
     different folder and then matted each one onto black card.
These were then adhered at different angles with tape.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth card, coloured
with Copic markers and the new Spectrum Noir Glitter
Pens.  The image was then die cut using SB die Labels
Eight. I cut the next size up with the same dies out
of black card and them adhered the image to it before
adhering to the card with foam tape to give some
height.

To complete I added the happy birthday banner from my stash

So there you go, hope to see you over at Penny's as I never get
tired of looking at all the wonderful creations that you come
up with.

Until Next Time
As Always
