Use a Punch or Die..Weekly Challenge at Glitter n Sparkle


I coloured the lovely image from Ltd Runs onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils and then mounted it onto craft card..Putting to one side I then printed the beautiful check paper from Crafter's Companions Party Paws Christmas Cd and another beige with small white snowflakes on as a contrast..These were all mounted onto craft card and added to a 7x7 card blank as shown..then taking two punches ,one a Hobycraft snowflake and the other a Tonic,the latter being a bit finer I cut enough out to go across the top and bottom of the topper..Once the topper was added with 3D glue I doubled the snowflakes and added to the card at the top and bottom of the topper and added small crystals ,also adding them to the tree ,coat, star and three either side to finish.. Thank you for taking the time to visit :)xx

Girls ,Girls,Girls DT Card for Julia Spiri Stamps

My second card for this lovely artist ,her lovely artwork is so nice to colour and looks so pretty on cards too..I have used this image as my choice, because it is so girly ..I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..Then mounted her onto craft card as you know is my fav choice for mounting card with.I then found papers from the bottom of my stash ,some just big enough off cuts for the job needed..Great when you have been crafting as long as me that many papers you keep ..just in case lol..I first cut to size mounted all onto craft card then I did faux stitching around the two layering papers for interest ..I then added all to the card as you can see ..The card is an 8x8 blank...Then I used 3D glue gel and added the topper to the card added some pre made flowers I brought from Hobbycraft and punched some leaves to finish I then added a gem to center of the flower and two opposite to balance..Added the sentiment to the side and its done done...

Glitter n Sparkle Weekly Challenge..Morgan Fitszimmons

I was so pleased I have had to use one of Morgans beautiful Digi stamps..Although I am on the CC design team I never got to do these for my campaign..so this is a treat for me,,I just love her artwork it is so detailed and ful of incredible things you find as your colouring away.I coloured this image onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils.. I then Mounted it onto craft card to keep the feeling very natural. The beuatiful papers are from CC cd called Flights of Fantasy ..I printed out the papers and a matching insert..I mounted all these onto craft card and glued on using Collall all purpose glue..I then tied some twine around the top layer before sticking down with Collall 3D gel glue. Once in place I then added the Topper to finish with the 3D glue and added a tag too.. I have not over decorated this card as there is so much work in the topper and it would have spoilt the card...This way it Showcases it..Thank you for visiting :)xx

My Besties ..Black and White

I wondered what I was going to colour up for this challenge and decided to do this adoreable little witch..Witches are not just for Halloween some little girls and big girls have birthdays at Halloween too... The background papers are from my stash..this card was a great design to use up odd bits of paper from left over projects..I used an 8x8 card blank and matted the background paper onto black card ,then I cut up two small off cuts of another grey paper and also popped them onto black card ,the one piece I had printed Happy Birthday Wishes, this was already on there as it was originally done for another card and it was cut off in the end as I decided to put a different sentiment on it , so it did me a favour here . The background was placed onto the card and then the four squares as shown..I then did a zig zag type squiggly thing around them..You can of course by the technical terms tell that I am a designer of great talent and knowledge ..not ...lol.. I then placed the topper onto the black card and used 3D gllue gel to mount it to the front... To finish I tied a couple of bows and added to the one corner ,then added some super little embellishments to the opposite side and placed a sparkly gem in the middle of the bow..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Glitter n Sparkle weekly Challenge

I had a lot of fun with this lovely image ..I coloured her on Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils,then cut her out with a very small white edge around her.. The actual card is a 7x7..I used a backing paper from Crafters Companion Christmas Moonbeam Meadow..I then mounted it onto craft card ..I cut a piece using a Marianne design die for the background trees and glued it in place ,then I cut a winter village from CC Diesire range coloured windows and added a bit of colour to the buildings ,but just a hint of colour ,then glued in place ..then using an embossing folder from the vintage Christmas ,also CC.. I then set two layers in front to finish ,defined the edges with blue chalk ..Cut a snowman from the new Diesire range and coloured him up and glued together,then popped him behind one of the layers,this helped to keep it all in perspective.. I finally glittered it all and stitch to the main card after that I glued in the insert and added the little girl with 3D glue gel and added the gems to finish..thank you for visiting :) xx

613 Avenue Create create your own challenge

Well I have got to say I have waited for months to get hold of this die from Tattered Lave ..I originally wanted the Glitter Girls Book a Trix board..but to be honest I am glad I have this now..the mind is the only limit what you can do with this amazing card creator ..I found four co ordinating papers from my stash ..,great for using up part sheets too like I have here.. Then for the main body I have used Centura Pearl in a beautiful lilac..the top layer has been embossed with an Embosalicious folder from CC....I glued the seams and used 3D glue to give glue to give lift to the pages.. I coloured the beautiful A Day With Daisies stamp with Polychromos pencils on Neenah card and cut it out ..I added it to the project with 3D glue gel.the mushrooms are from Mariane Designs ,I coloured these with alcahol pens before gluing in place..the flowers are CC Flowers for All Occasions and I cut them from the same Centura Pearl as the outer leaf..I then shaped them,added the gems and placed them in position.. I then popped on the sentiment ..thank you for visiting :) xx
