It's all about paper piecing

Hi there, I have a couple of cards today, all based around our Fab N Funky challenge this week, which is paper piecing.

I have chosen some very simple outline images from Digi Stamp Boutique for my card, and paper pieced the petals using some NitWits digital papers.
The nice thing about this is  that I have used the same paper on the petals as some of the background, so this is a really nice and simple way to pull a card together.

I look forward to seeing you over at Fab n Funky.

A New Challenge at Colour Crazy

 It's time for a new challenge at Colour Crazy and this week we are sponsored by Oddball Art, who have some lovely quirky images which are perfect for the Halloween season.
This little lady looks very zombiefied doesn't she? I didn't want to use girly colours on this occasion so I went for blues and greens instead, to tone in with the backing papers that I chose. I wanted everything to be a bit offset to match with her stumbling along in a zombie fashion!

I've also added some faux stitching to bring the background together with the character.

This is a really unusual image for me, but I really enjoyed colouring her. I hope that you will come and join as at Colour Crazy and share your colourful creations too.

Bye for now.

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes with Whimsy Stamps

Another day, another challenge.........and today I am back for Cute Card Thursday who are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps with a theme of Anything Goes.

I am starting to feel a little bit Christmasy now, and I do love some fairy lights, so I chose this gorgeous little penguin for my card and matched him up with some very appropriate Nitwits digital papers. You probably can't see the wording on the green paper too well, but it actually has 'Deck the Halls' written al over it.
For me it was really nice to do a penguin without all the usual icy blues. We have a much warmer colour palette here, which I based around the backing papers.

My image is coloured with Spectrum Noirs and I have added some pale yellow, as opposed to the usual grey outlining, as I wanted to give impression of a glow coming from the little fairy lights.

I have to say there are lots of things I love about this image.......his little feet,,,,,,his podgy little belly.....and his ever so cute face. I will definitely be using this little guy again!

Thanks very much for visiting me today, nd I do hope that you will pay a visit to Cute Card Thursday too.

Bye for now.

Fab N Funky - Pretty In Pink with All Dressed Up

It's time for another challenge over at Fab n Funky, and this week we are lucky to be sponsored by a company that I really love - All Dressed Up.

This lovely little image is one that I return to time and time again as she is so sweet, and imagine how tiny she must be to be able to sit under those flowers!
The theme this week is pretty in pink, but I didn't want to go for a monochrome effect so I have paired up my pinks with some pastel blues, and of course there is the obligatory glitter on the fairy wings!

I have kept my card clean and simple, but paired it up with a lovely piece of ribbon which I got from Polkadoodles and some gorgeous Nitwits papers.

I hope you like my card for today and I look forward to seeing you over at Fab n Funky.

Trick or Treat at Cute Card Thursday

Hi there! Withe the creepy season fast approaching it's time to get going with some Halloween Cards, so this week at Cute Card Thursday we have a theme of Trick or Treat, sponsored by Bugaboo.

They have absolutely tonnes of images in store, but I had to go with this one as the bat  with the googly eyes really made me laugh.

I have coloured this pair in with my  Spectrum Noirs, and I have added the faintest hint of lilac on the mummy so that he tones in with the purple background.

I hope you like this fun iamge and I look forward to seeing you over at Cute Card Thursday this week.

What's up chick?

Hi there.

I'm back with a very quick post today. It's a very simple CAS card using a very cute digi stamp with I coloured with my Spectrum Noirs.

I left my card sentiment free, but I think it could be used for any number of reasons, just by adding a sentiment: 'Sorry I forgot', 'Feel Better Soon', 'Just a Little Note to Say......'

With that cute little face I think this lovely chick is perfect for all sorts of occasions!

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Trees and Sparkle

Hi there. I am back today with a Christmas card, as it seems that it is the time of year when crafters' minds are turning in that direction!

This is a card that I made for last Christmas, using all sorts of lovely things from Stamps by Chloe.

I have created the background sheet using an pine tree sprig stamp and lots of WOW embossing powder, and I used a lovely branch on acetate to create the golden embellishments.  
Now on to the trees, which are another set of Chloe's stamps.As you can see I have paper pieced them, and I have raised the central tree for some perspective. Finally chunky glitter and faux snow were the perfect finish for this card.

Hope you like my card for today and thanks for visiting!
