Colour Combo - Stamping Vacation

Hi all I have a DT card to show you for the new Colour Combo challenge at Stamping Vacation.  This month the colours we would like to see you use are, Green, Rust and Cream, here is my card.
Once again I have used the image from QKR Stampede coloured with Copics and mounted onto both rust and green coloured card stock.  The green base card I used my embossing bars on this is the Greek Key design.  I added green gems some stamping on the left side using a small flourish clear stamp from Marks Finest, the flower is from my stash.
I hope you will join our challenge this month and please check out the other challenges that are on the go for the month.
Hugs to all see you later.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Today I have this card to show you which is my QKR Stampede DT card.  I have used this gorgeous bear image, available HERE, which made me think of the poem below, it has been a favourite of mine for so long.
The image I have coloured with Copics and mounted onto blue card, the bp is Elusive Images, also mounted onto blue card, I added a strip of the same blue card across the centre topped by a ribbon, I also added flowers, gems and some holly and sentiment.
Here is the poem

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

There are more verses to this but I thought I would just have a few.

Card and Gift Set

Hi all it's Meljen New Release day and there are some gorgeous images now available at 
 I chose to show you the Corn Dolly image coloured with Copics and here she is.
My idea when I first coloured her was to create something totally different to this but what was in my head did not compute into real life, but I am happy with the finished article.  I used K&Co papers, SU Choc Chip card, flowers, gems and lace.  I cut the image out and mounted with silicone glue for a 3d look.

I was not well enough to participate in the Whimsy November Blog Hop but yesterday I felt creative so this little set below I made using a new image by Chrissy Armstrong and now available at 

My first picture shows the set together , which is an 8"x8" card and Chest of Drawers, the image I have used for both items is Little Christmas Angel.
I apologise for the quality of my photos but the weather here is awful and it is quite dark but I hope you will be able to see the detail of this set ok.
The card I used is an 8x8 white card base the papers are My Minds Eye (I think) the card I used for mounting the paper on is SU Razzleberry, I added lace, ribbon, sentiment, flowers, icicle and some Cosmic Shimmer Silver Twinkles.  The image I enlarged and cut out I coloured her with Copics.
The Chest of Drawers I followed a tutorial at SCS Here
I used a mixture of Bazzill and SU card stock, once again I cut the image out, this one is smaller than the one on the card.
I used Tim Holtz fasteners for the handles, the drawers can be filled with sweets or little gifts.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed my little projects for today and to see the images that I have used then please pop over to Whimsy Stamps.
Big Hugs see you all later.

Digital Tuesday #83

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at 
this week our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish our theme is
I've Been Framed (plus Digi)
We would like to see a frame or border used with your image
Here is my DT card
I have used an image that is available from QKR Stampede, my regular visitors may recognise her as I have used this one a few times she is such a joy to colour.
I have gone for a red and white colour theme this time, the papers are a mixture of Basic Grey and Kaiser, I coloured the image with promarkers, the frame is silver mirror card which I sanded then rubbed in some SU Choc Chip ink to take down the shine.  The small corner flowers are punched from the same papers as the bp, I added some pearls, gingham ribbon, flower and gem.
I do hope you will join us for our challenge this week and please do visit the other DTM their work is both creative and inspirational.
We have a new Sketch Therapy challenge for you today at Stamping Vacation
Here is the sketch
and here is my DT card.
I used a pre coloured image which I laminated it is from Wink, Wink, Wink and the sentiment comes with it, which I also laminated.
The bp is Papermania, I did faux stitching then used my small retro punch for the flowers the centres are yellow liquid pearls.
Hope you will come join us at Stamping Vacation's Sketch Therapy.
The first tune in my play list is called Twin Peaks and for anyone who is interested the series is due to start this week on Sky Horror Channel, I am definitely going to record it.

Thank You Gift Set

Hi all I wanted to show you this little gift set that I made for the challenge at Let's Ink It Up, I so enjoyed making this and using all new items.  The challenge is quite different and called Swaps I love the idea of this. I am also entering this into the Cupcake Challenge which is 'Thank You with Autumnal Colours'

I belong to a Stamping Ten group and order SU products each month, awhile ago I ordered the 'Forest Friends' set of stamps which I have used for the first time on this gift set.

We also have a November monthly sponsor at Stamping Vacation
For the month of November we have MARK'S FINEST PAPERS as our sponsor. They will be giving away 4 of the December Sneak Peek stamp sets and there will be a $25.00 gift certificate to their store as well! The winner will be raondomly chosen on December 1st! We will be showcasing their stamps throughout the month. 

Mark's Finest Papers, do a wonderful range of clear stamps, and as a DTM I received a set of these stamps very recently and decided they would be perfect for this challenge and give you a sneak peek at what you could win by joining us at Stamping Vacation.
Here is my little project
I made a little gift box using SU Rich Razzleberry card stock, I didn't follow a tutorial but used my Martha Stewart score board which has box sizes in a little fold down top, I thought this was so useful.
To decorate the box I also used Rich Razzleberry dotty ribbon and matching flowers from my stash.
For the top I stamped the tree image from the Forest Friends set then used the circle and flourishes from Mark's Finest.
This is a look at the inside when opened, the matching envelopes are at the bottom of the box.
These are the cards themselves, I used 3.5"x3.5" white card I used the same stamping method of using the SU images first then adding the circle and sentiments, there is a total of nine sentiments in the stamp set two of which were perfect for the challenge, all images have been stamped using SU Rich Razzleberry ink.

I hope you have enjoyed my little project I hope I haven't rambled on but I am so excited to be back creating again lol.
 hugs to all and see you later.

Tilda in Blue

Hi all hope you are well, I think I have found not only my health again but my love of crafting, can I thank you all once again for your kindness to me while I have been going through some rough times.  I have lost a few of my faithful followers but maybe I can tempt them back with some of my creations.
I made this card for the following challenges
I bought this Tilda very recently, I have wanted her for so long, in fact I was inspired by a Christmas card that I had last year from Shirley aka Nannieflash.  I have the card pinned on my wall by my craft station and look at it everyday along with other cards that I have received.
I used a bp from Elusive Images the central blue strip is pearlescent paper punched with an EK Success border punch.  I coloured Tilda with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor, I added Diamond glitter to the fairy lights on the tips of the tree and Tilda's headband.  I found some silver metallic thread which I used crossed over.  The flower is handmade and well scrunched using two different colours of pearlescent paper and punches, I also added Diamond glitter to the edges, I used a flower brad for the centre and added a snowflake charm.  I then added some punched Holly leaves at the top with, once again, Diamond Glitter, the sentiment I stamped with Momento Black Tuxedo Ink.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and maybe it has inspired you, thank you for visiting I am sending hugs to all and see you later.

Creative Inspirations #46

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at 
and Suzi has chosen the theme
Glitter. Glamour, Girly.
Our sponsor is Paper Cupake Stamps
our Monthly Sponsor is Fantastic Ribbons
Here is my DT Card which I am also entering into this weeks 
I love this card, I have it on my little easel and I just keep looking at it, I was pleased that I had created, what I think is a little beauty, I hope you will agree.
I used a 6x6 scalloped white card base, the bp is Basic Grey mounted onto pink card, this image of Tilda and flowers I received for my birthday from blogging buddies, I have tried to purchase this stamp but so far it has been sold out so I will just have to wait (edited) I have got one from Sir Stampalot).
I coloured Tilda with my Prisma pencils and Sansodor, I then mounted her onto pink card.  I added two ribbons and bow, the centres of the flowers are small pink flower crystals, I also added large pink pearls, and gems.  I thought this fitted the challenge nicely.
I do recommend you paying a visit to my fellow DTM as their work is gorgeous.
I really hope you will join our challenge we look forward to seeing you all.
Big Hugs
