Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Sapphire

Good Morning and welcome to my last inspiration post of the month for Ching-Chou Kuik. This week I have used the gorgeous Sapphireand made an extra large (7.5 inch square) card for my best friend's daughter who went off to university last weekend, so hopefully she has received this already. She is training to become a primary school teacher and has named me as one of her inspirations in doing so! How lovely is that?! I wanted to give her a little card just to wish her lots of luck.

This card is also for World Wide Open Design Team Challenge #26 Anything Goes Crafty Girlz September Challenge Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #137 Anything Goes Crafting With Friends Challenge #51 Anything Goes Little Miss Muffet Challenge #172 Anything Goes

The Paper Shelter Challenge #310 - Make It Digital

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is called Make It Digital, so we would like to see your digital creations. You could use a digi stamp, digi papers, digi colouring and so on.

I have used the adorable Treasure Hunt and combined the image and background paper in my paint program and then printed onto card so I could colour the image using my Copics. I kept this card fairly simple - just 1 layer, which is unusual for me. I just added a sentiment and a few gems to it.

Ching Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Spring Night

Good morning everyone and welcome to my inspiration post for Ching-Chou Kuik this week. Today I am using the gorgeous Spring Night from the Spring Mermaid & Fairy set. I was going to use a different image originally but as the DT were challenged to create our own backgrounds I thought that this mermaid image would work better with a bubbles background. I used my Dutch Doobadoo stencils to create 2 different patterns in varying shades of aqua.

Whimsy Stamps New Release - Halloween Witchy Girl

Good evening. Apologies I am late with my new release post for Whimsy Stamps today. I am really suffering with a bad back, shoulder and neck at the minute and every little movement hurts. My back is the worst though and being bent over to craft and colour takes its toll after a while, so I can only do little bits at a time. I think my cards might have to be on the simpler side for a while until this heals!

Anyway here is my card using the adorableHalloween Witchy Girl and the previously released Halloween Haunts Digital PapersandHalloween Sentiments 1.

Delicious Doodles September Challenge - Fairies at the Bottom of the Garden

Good Morning and happy September. It will soon be time for me to go back to school. I am starting a new job in a new school this year and am a little nervous, but really excited and looking forward to it.

But first on to the new challenge from Delicious Doodles. This month our challenge is Fairies at the Bottom of the Garden and I used the adorable Fairy Treehousefor my card. This is a really detailed stamp and took me about 3-4 hours to colour in the end. I do love it though, but it needed to be on a larger than my usual size card.
