creata challenge card

What a busy week it has been, now having time to enter a few challenges.  Below is a quick card I did for the Creata challenge.  The theme was colour based and to use orange and sky blue.

The Creata products that I have used on this are the blue papers, the flower  -forming sunflowers and leaves, also the gel sticker leaves.  I am so loving the different textures of the paper, gel stickers etc.  To enter a Creata challenge just visit; .

Glamoureyes new digi release

All exciting over at Glamoureyes as new digi's are being released into the shop.  Here is a card made with the fabulous Francesca that was released this evening.

To join in the fun and get information on future digi's and stamps feel free to join us at;   

I wanted the digi image to stand out, therefore decided to make the other elements and die-cuts using centura pearl card stock.  I  added pearl hat pins and beads.  The pearl brad is from Creata and is available through Create and Craft.

Three different pinks from my pro-markers were used on the main parts of the digi and I added diamond sparkles to the hat and dress.  Why not pop along to my friends blog and see the fabulous card she created using the digi image.

Glamoureyes personalised digi of my son

So happy that due to the fabulous Sarah at Glamoureyes I now have  this digi of my son which is being made into a stamp!!  You can get your own personalised stamps made, just visit  .   For this card I used earth tones to colour-in my son (how strange does that sound),  I then used my embossing folders for a bit of texture onto black mirror card from Creata.  .  The papers are from an old Kanban paper kit.

Artistic Inspirations Challenge - buttons

New challenge over at    The theme is using buttons!!!  I know how painful it is to part with buttons, believe me I feel your pain....  (advice, just place them on a card - don't stick them, then you still have them to play with).  ha ha.  I've put two examples further down, why two you may ask?  Was I over-keen or did I do it in error?  The judges are out.

The above uses an adorable digi image from Sassy Studio.  I've put the digi onto white 'colour me' card from Hunkydory and coloured in grey pro-marker's with a touch of cerise.  Yes I've used buttons... but are they stuck down? lol.  The papers are from an old Kanban paper pad the Mechanica and Industrianna set.

Another fabulous Sassy Studio digi used and coloured with purple tones in pro-markers and the skin being in grey tones.  The toadstools are from a fairy stamp set from ;  who also have a facebook group;  .  I have used a 'Tonic' punch and lace flowers that have buttons placed onto them.

Now you've seen my cards come and enter yours into the challenge x
