The Paper Shelter Challenge #360 Winter Fun

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is all about those upcoming wintery fun activities. I chose to use the gorgeous Heart of Christmas and used some of my new Christmas goodies that I got from the Create and Craft goodie bag at a local crafting fair the other weekend. It is very shiny though with all the gold foil everywhere! Luckily it's the kind of card my MIL likes so that's hers all done!

And one more for Hallowe'en...

Good evening! I'm quickly sharing with you my final Hallowe'en card of the year. I think I have way more than I need, but I just had to use this gorgeous stamp from Newton's Nook. I just love all the cute kitties playing in the pumpkins!

I am glad I left this stamp until the end of my Hallowe'en pile though as I was sick of colouring pumpkins by the end of it!

Fantasy Friday #13 Featuring Mermaid Sabrina from Make It Crafty

Good morning! Welcome to another of my Fantasy Friday posts! This week I am sharing my colouring of Mermaid Sabrina by Make It Crafty from the colouring class that Zoe has created. I really enjoyed this class and love how this came out all except the sand! My copics either ran out ir went sticky part way through so had to do lots of cleaning and adapting to try and make it work and it ended up being a bit too brown for my liking, but I persevered and I think it was ok.

I do intend on trying again, but with clean and full markers before I start next time!


This colouring is for Crafty Catz Challenge #435 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge Week 43 Anything Goes Creative Moments Challenge #155 Anything Goes Crafty Creations Challenge #377 Anything Goes
I'm not sure if I am allowed to share the Copic colours used for this colouring class, but if you want to check it out then you can check it outhere

Stamping Bella Oddball Vampire Girl

Good evening! I had a little bit of free crafting time today after completing all my DT assignments for this week, so I thought I would colour up this new stamps of mine for a couple of challenges. I'm really starting to get into Stamping Bells stamps at the minute, but now need to start using them, instead of just buying them and cooing over them!

I used the hilarious Oddball Vampire Girl and followed a sketch from 2 Sisters on the blog challenge.

Good morning and welcome to my next installment of Fantasy Friday. This week I am sharing a card using the adorable Set of Unicorns and Unicorn Sentiment Set both from Stamping Bella.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps this week. Today I am sharing a card using a technique that I haven't done in absolutely ages - masking and inking. This technique is so easy (kinda!) to do, yet I never seem to do it. I used the gorgeous Lydia's Wolf Cub digi stamp, flipped one so they were side by side, then masked the wolves to colour the sky in Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink.

I then masked the moon and wolves to colour the sky and grass. I swear I had the grassy edges stencil from MFT to do the grass, but instead found 2 of the hills and drifts stencil so I reckon I have got muddled up there as the grassy edges was nowhere to be found. Need to add that one to my shopping list I guess! I used my clouds stencil to add some clouds over the moon and sky as well, but they didn't quite come out as I intended. Think this is definitely a technique I need to practise!

Fantasy Friday #10 featuring Little Fairies from The Greeting Farm

Happy Friday! Welcome to my latest Fantasy Friday post! This week I am featuring a card using the adorable Little Fairies from the Greeting Farm. I have had this set for absolutely ages, since it came out over here in the UK, but have never used it! That is really bad of me!

I used my Lawn Fawn Bayou Backdrop die, another unused purchase until today to create this cute scene of the fairies hanging around together in the garden!
