Lacy Sunshine Challenge #68 Under The Sea Christmas

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge over at Lacy Sunshine. This fortnight our challenge is called Under The Sea Christmas and Heather has some fabulous images in the Lacy Sunshine store for this challenge.

I was given the gorgeous Goldie Sunkissed Mer to use for my card, so I went with a traditional red and green colour scheme for her, but not the sea obviously! I added some extra holly leaves and berries for a bit of decoration to match those on Goldie's wrists.



This card is also for

Come and Get It Challenge Clear It Out (The patterned papers I have used are all just scraps now with just enough to do the bottom layer and everything else was small strips or pieces.)

Art by MiRan Fantastic Fall Papers by Tracy Wray

Good evening! I am a bit late posting this today, but I got here in the end. Today the Art by MiRan Facebook group have released the next set of fantastic patterned papers designed by fabulous DT member Tracy Wray. This month the papers and sentiments are Autumn themed and perfect for your Fall or Autumn themed projects.

I used the gorgeous Autumn Memoirs for my card today along with Tracy's papers, although I ended up covering them up a bit too much with all my leaf die cuts and didn't think about that until it was too late. Hopefully you can still see some of the papers peeking through.

New Release at Julia Spiri Stamps - Little Ant

Good Morning and welcome to another new release post from me for Julia Spiri Stamps. We have some fabulous new images being released today and I was asked to use the adorable Little Ant - isn't she just so cute?!

Art by MiRan September Progressive Challenge

Good evening and welcome to my post for the new Progressive Challenge from the Art by MiRan Facebook Challenge team. This month we are starting to get a little bit seasonal and Mi Ran has drawn a beautiful winter themed image for us. You could make it a non-winter image if you so wish, but I went with the winter and kept to a blue and white monochromatic colour scheme.

I dug my Silhouette Portrait machine out for this one as I am on a mission to cut down on my crafting spending each month and trying to use my Portrait a bit more instead, which is so much cheaper and the studio has so many gorgeous die cuts anyway!

To find out how you can get this image for free, head on over to the Art by MiRan Facebook group and check out my pinned post there. If you joined in last month, you will need to email me. If you didn't then you can follow the link in the Facebook group to buy her at a discount just for this month!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #218 - Charming

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge over at The Paper Shelter. This week, our challenge is called "Charming" and we want to see you use a charm on your project.

I used the gorgeous The Lady and the Fountain - such a beautiful, elegant image and kept to softer colours of peach and pale grey. I added a little flower charm with some twine to the sentiment and realised it was my last one, so ordered some more along with lots of other designs from eBay.

Sassy Studio Designs Sponsors Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge #102

Good Morning and welcome to another DT post from me for Sassy Studio Designs. We have another sponsorship post today as we are sponsoring the Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge blog for their challenge #102 which is to make a feminine project.

As I'm still in love with all things Paris, following our little trip there, I decided to use the gorgeous France Honey and my new X-Cut Dies - Build A Scene Parisian Street. I saw someone else make a card using these dies in the Kit and Clowder group on Facebook and just had to have them! I also bought a haunted forest set ready for some Hallowe'en cards too!

I made a shadowbox to hang on my wall using various shades of grey for the shadowing part and then touches of pink for the other bits. I think this is feminine enough without being overly floral and vintage! I didn't have any suitable sentiments so I stamped one - it says Life is beautiful for those of you who don't speak French.

Stamps: France Honey from Sassy Studio Designs, Back to Basics Alphabet from Stampin' Up

Papers: Rose Red, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy & Always Artichoke all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card
