Hugs and Kisses from Fifi tag

Hi. I'm blogging today about a digital stamp that I got from the Outlawz Monthly Progressive Challenge which can be found here. This month image is from Ppinkydollsart and she is called Fifi. You can find more of her images here. I made her into a gift tag.

As this is a one layer only gift tag I didn't want the ink in my Markers to bleed through the card. So the image has been coloured with pencils only. The sentiment has come from a From The Heart digital stamp set. The die is from the Spellbinders Marrocan Accents die set. Then I have embellished with a flower and pearls.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

SD Super Hero Boy

Hello. I've got a new card I'd like to blog about today. This time a boys space card. I'm using a Scrappers Delights digital stamp that is the current Friday Freebie that as long as you make a project you can get the next Friday Freebie image. He is called Super Hero Boy 1. This is free on request at Scrappers Delights Facebook group which is here. For a limited time (until the 26th of May.) However he can be purchased at there online shop here.

I have coloured this boy with one Chameleon Colour Tones Pen. I have been practicing with these pens and I'm happy with the way he turned out. The sentiment says 'Shoot for the moon even if you miss you'll be amongst the starts' this has come from the Tatty Twinkle Ultimate Collection CD rom. The background is just dark blue textured paper with die cut stars on it. To embellish the card I've handmade this 3D moon out of homemade texture paste. I've added craters using a flower shaping tool. When it was dry I coloured the craters using Rangers black soot distress ink to give it more depth.

PigWit in the planter card

Hi. Today I'd like to share with you a card that I've made for the sketch layout challenge by From The Heart. I've used this cute little piggy called Hamlet the PigWits in the planter. This PigWit is also this months From The Heart Progressive Challenge image. You can find him here.


I've been practicing colouring with my Chameleon Colour Tones Pens with this image. The sentiment came with the PigWit set. To create the bottom part of my background I stuck plain yellow and pink paper to some card and embossed it with the flower pattern. Then to embellish it I made some 3D flowers using flowers dies by Craft Emotions and layering them up.

The card behind him has homemade texture paste that I've added to it using a stencil. Then I've used gesso to seal it in and distress ink to colour the edges. I've used a embossing folder for the background. Then embellished with two small Sunflowers that I made by layering up some flowers dies made by Craft Emotions.

Cute Kitten

Hi all. It's a beautiful sunny day here in the UK and I've got a card I've created for Gerda Steiner Designs - Share Your Design Challenge. It sure would be nice to see more projects entered into this challenge. You can find the challenge here. I love Gerda Steiner Designs images. I've decided to used her cute little kitten digital stamp. It is called Love Your Kitten and can be found in her online shop here. If you like this little guy I think you may like to take a look around the rest of her online shop here. They are all so cute and there are a few freebies within the shop too. As well as rubber and clear stamps sets of the most adorable little creatures available to buy. There is also a blog linked here and Facebook group which is full of inspiration creations using these images. I think that Gerda Steiner Designs images are so versatile. I think that anybody would love a card with a cute critter on.

I've kept this card quite simple. I've sat this little kitten image on a chair that I made with my Brother Scan N Cut. The kitten and chair have been coloured using watercolour pencils. I've added a Spellbinders Marrocan Accents die (the page devider) and a Provo Craft bird embossing folder.

I'd also like to enter this card into a few challenges
