Delicious Doodles - Dark (Image or Colour)

Hello me again this time sharing a make from the wonderful Delicious Doodles Challenge blog. The challenge is Dark (Image or Colour). I chose to use Dark colours for my card.
I am still absolutely in love with the foiling techniques so I used a leftover piece of foil to create this wonderful topper for my card with the lovely image Dashing Knight from the etsy store!
I used some Tim Holtz sentiments and layered onto black card stock!

Lelli-Bot Craft Challenge #4 Ribbons and Bows

Good Morning to you all. I hope you had an amazing Bank Holiday. Are you all ready for the new school term, those of you who work in a school or have children at school? I am nearly there!!!
Today I am sharing my first challenge blog post with you for the Lelli-Bot Crafts Challenge. Today our theme is Ribbons and Bows for the month of September.
Hop over to the blog where you will find lots of gorgeous makes and all the rules to enter.
I made two cards for the challenge. I am making headway with my christmas card list....!


For this card I used one of the bauble stamps from the Frosted Christmas stamp set. I simply used a distress ink and stamped onto some patterned cream card. I used a ribbon from the kit and a pearl to decorate the top of the bauble. I used a sentiment from the stamp set underneath the bauble. I then used an accordian die from crafters companion- and pearls from the pearl kits available at Lelli-Bot Crafts to decorate the front of my card.

What I love about Sam's designs is that they can be used as a kit or you can use other products with them. Here I used the Frosted Christmas Stamp set on the base card to create a snowy background. I used one of the 6 by 6 papers in the centre of the card. I added a sentiment I created on my Silhouette Curio. I added two ribbons from the kit and a lovely gem from one of Sam's other kits. Finally I added lots of gems to the snowflakes for that christmas bling.

Delicious Doodles Challenge - White on White

Hello again another DT post from me this time it is the monthly challenge over at Delicious Doodles where this time the theme is White on White. I love this theme so many options. We are allowing the image to be coloured as this often helps.
I made  card that would work for a number of occasions. You could use for an anniversary, thinking of you, sympathy or a wedding card. This image with the Lovely Lilly Wedding bouquet is so useful.
The image is coloured with water colour markers and then I added some distress ink around to frame it. I added some stickles to add some sparkle. I added some punched foliage and flowers and some pearls.
I embossed the backing card made a bow with a die and added a sentiment from a Lelli-Bot Craft kit.

Lelli-Bot Craft Challenge #3 Christmas In August

Hi there hope everyone is surviving the 6 weeks break. We are having fun and keeping busy with as many free activities as we can. Today I would like to share with you a make for Challenge #3 over at the Lelli-Bot Crafts Challenge Blog. Our theme is easy Christmas In August using Lelli-Bot Crafts Products from the store.

I made this card using the Frosted Christmas kit and stamp set. I love the papers and toppers in the kit so I used them as my inspiration. I wanted to grunge up the kit a bit.

I cut a Marianne Dies frame from kraft card. I then versamarked and embossed with white embossing powder around the outside edge.
I then stamped the Frosted Christmas stamp set star bauble and used white embossing powder to emphasise it.
I inked around with vintage photo distress ink on the background and stamped the snow flakes from the frosted Christmas set using the same ink. I inked some twine and added to the star bauble.
I inked one of the DP from the Frosted Christmas kit to grunge it up. I stamped the holly and added to the twine as an embellishment. I used a sentiment from the kit and the star embellishment and more twine to finish the card off.


Come and join us and make a card for the challenge there is a prize of a topper kit of your choice available.

Delicious Doodles Challenge - Fancy and Frilly

Good Morning I am sharing my Design Team card with you from the new challenge over at Delicious Doodles. This weeks theme is Fancy and Frilly. I love this new image from the store called Tall Ship and Banners. Down in Greenwich last weekend there was a festival dedicated to Tall ships.
I thought the banners represented this theme really well. I have coloured the image with my alcohol markers. I used backing papers from my huge stash. I have created dimension with the papers. I added some wave borders and a sentiment for more texture. The waves I thought were good frills.
I hope you like what i did. Teri is offering a voucher to spend in the store as a prize so worth getting out your frills and fancy bits for!

Lellibot Craft Challenge - Become a Guest Designer


Do you want a free digi to play with and the chance to be a Guest Designer in May then you need to hop over to the Lelli-bot Craft Blog. Sam and her team are giving us a chance to win a Guest Designer spot for May. They have set the challenge of using a free digi stamp to create a card to enter into the challenge.
So here is my card I made using the non coloured in Lelli-bot Craft Digi stamp. I used distress inks to colour the image. I then added a pearl to the bow. I cut out using a nestability. I backed onto pale blue pearlescent cardstock.
I created my own stencil to design the backing papers. I sprayed some spray and sparkle through the stencil and let it dry and then added distress ink ontop with a stencil brush for the top paper. The bottom paper I used the stencil in a random fashion and used two colours of distress inks. I added some ribbon, lace and a sentiment from my stash to complete my card.



Challenge I would love to enter :

Just for Fun - Ribbon and Lace

Gothic Grunge by Lellibot Craft

Thanks to Facebook I found this amazing new company called Lellibot Craft . I have been busy crafting with the paperkits during the past week and I have to say I am very impressed. They are a reasonable price with an abundance of goodies to play with once you get them delivered (very quick delivery times). The kits are versatile and suit all styles of crafting. My favourite so far is this kit I am sharing today called Gothic Grunge
.

This is the kit I ordered from the website


This kit is amazing fun. I painted the topper with watercolour pens. I then embossed some white card and painted with the same pens. I the used the leftover paint to stain the backing paper from the kit. I then stamped over the paper with the same pens I added flowers and guilding wax to embellish.

I hope you can join in the facebook group and follow the blog as this product really is fantastic. I won card of the week with another make this week on the blog so hop over and see that card along with all the Design Team inspiration
