PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #453



Good morning crafters!

We have a fun new challenge on the go at Penny's, with prizes from 2 great sponsors up for grabs:


and



The team are showcasing images from Imagine That! this week.  I've used Snowing Cupcakes on my card.  I don't know about you, but the idea of cupcakes raining down from the sky gets me VERY excited!  It's such a fun Christmas image!


I have coloured the image with markers and used KaiserCraft circle and scalloped circle dies to cut the image and sentiment out.  By the way, the sentiment is included in the image set, along with other other options.

My papers are from a Me to You set.  The ribbon and remade bow are Papermania.  I have unfortunately ripped the label off the packaging for the tile letters making up JOY, so I can't tell you what brand they are.  The sweet red and green jewelled snowflakes are Dress It Up buttons.  I've also added Echo Park enamel dots.





The team have put together such a lovely array of inspiration for our sponsor this week, so be sure to pop back to the challenge blog to have a look.

Hope you're having a happy crafty week!

Thanks for popping in today!

DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS NEW RELEASE: CHRISTMAS CAROLERS


We have a New Release of Fall/Winter images coming soon to Digi Doodle Studios, just in time for all your Christmas cards!



I have coloured the image with markers and used a Creative Dies wonky stitches die to cut it out.  

My papers are from the Authentique Frosted pack.  I've used a Spellbinders die to cut out the snowflake paper.  I've added a crocheted doily, a strip of lace and a sheer ribbon.  My flowers are Green Tara.  

The two sentiment banners are from a beautiful Marianne Design stamp and die set.  Lastly, I've added teeny Jolee's bells.






This New Release is so lovely!  We're showing them all off in our FaceBook group if you'd like to see more.

IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMP CREATIVE PLAYGROUND CHALLENGE #10: REMINDER


I have the honour of Guest Designing for the ITD Creative Playground Challenge this month, and so an opportunity to create with these wonderful images.


This one is called Snappy Sandy.  I have coloured the image with markers and added in a beach background for her.  The sentiments and little film strip are part of this fun set.

My paper is from the 49 and Market Seaside pack.  

I've added two laser cut film strips from The Dusty Attic, and sprayed them with white Gesso.  The fantastic camera is Jolee's.

I've added flowers by KaiserCraft; 49 and Market, and Blossoms by Vivaldi.






The Creative Playground team have created a beautiful assortment of inspiration cards this week, so do pop in for a look.  Or, if you just need to get shopping, you can head straight to the Imagine That store.

I have had so much fun creating with these adorable images this month, and I'd like to thank Kris for allowing me to play along with her team.

Thanks so much for popping in for look today!

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #452



One of my favourite stores in sponsoring us at Penny's this week!



We're going with Christmas cards this week, which is a good things, because there are only 5½ weeks till Christmas!  I've used What A Mess!! on my card.  I have coloured the image with markers.


My papers and the Christmas stickers are from the Dovecraft Christmas Basics collection.  The enamel dots are My Mind's Eye, and I've used a magazine freebie stamp for the sentiment.  All pretty basic this week.  I didn't want to go too crazy on embellishing the card, because it's quite a detailed image, and I didn't want to steal from it.





Now it's time for you to show us what you're working on this week!  

Thanks for popping in for look today!

I've used Poppy Crafts dies to cut out the image and sentiments.

My sentiments are 2 stamps from different companies: The Birthday sentiment by Apple Blossom, and the wings sentiment by Ultimate Crafts.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret pack.  I've added an assortment of flowers including Prima, Green Tara and Little Birdie.  The toadstools are KaiserCraft.  I picked up the little Fairy Garden tree stump at my local craft shop.  I've added a thin sheer ribbon and a few pearls.
