LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration post featuring Sabrina

Good morning and welcome to my monthly inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101 . This month I picked the gorgeous Sabrina for my card to add to my Hallowe'en card stash! I made her into a fairly wide image, so that I could add her to a DL sized card, but boy did that sky take a while do!  I kept the rest of the card fairly simple and added a few die cut bats and cats (the cats were needed to fit in with the sentiment, which is one of my faves to use for Hallowe'en cards!). Recipe: Stamps: Sabrina from LeAnn's World 101, Totally Witchin' from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Papers: Gorgeous Grape & basic Black both from Stampin' Up, The Witching Hour Patterned Papers both from Pion Design, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Gorgeous Grape from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers, Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen Accessories: Spiderweb Punch Around The Page Set from Martha Stewart, Die-Namics Spooky Scene Dies from My Favorite Things, Mini Bats Dies from

Scene It Sunday #17 Featuring Let's Go Nuts from Lawn Fawn

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. I thought I would use my new Lawn Fawn goodies for this week's card. I love squirrels so this stamp set jumped straight into my basket on release day! And I just had to have the cute Acorn House die and the Lift The Flap Trees too, but I forgot to get the Big Acorn stamp set, so that will go on next month's order! I made a DL sized card for this one to get everything in and used the Lift The Flap trees die twice, but cut the frame off it to make it more like the trees were in the woods. I also used the new Into The Woods patterned papers for the sky.  This is the card with the flaps closed... And this is with the flaps open, so you can see the cute squirrels hiding inside!  This card is for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #85 Awesome Autumn The Library Challenge #69 What to Look For In Autumn Allsorts Challenge Week 591 Autumn Colours Sweet Stampin' Challenge Autumn Crafty Friends Challenge #145 Autumn Colours Gem o

The Paper Shelter Challenge #442 - Blast From The Past

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for this week's challenge from The Paper Shelter . Our challenge this time is called Blast From the Past, so I used an older image from another era. This gorgeous gal is Retro Chic and I totally love her outfit! I love all the 50s and 60s clothes and think I really should have been back then! For the layout, I decided to copy the theme of the picture behind her and then added some pom pom trim in the corners and gems as well. The sentiment I found in a set from Clearly Besotted, which was just perfect for this image!  Recipe: Stamps: Retro Chic from The Paper Shelter, Laugh Out Loud Again from Clearly Besotted Papers: Calypso Coral, Old Olive & Epic day This & That DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Calypso Coral from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers Accessories: Calypso Coral Pom Pom trim (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Gems from Poundland Copics Used: Skin - E000, E00, E2

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. I have yet another scene using the Build-A collections from The Greeting Farm. This one is Build-A-Bathroom and I loved the idea of making a chill and relax kind of card!

Something Else on Saturday #73 Featuring Madame Mirlande from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. You can probably tell, but I'm starting to get right into Hallowe'en colouring mode now! I love all the creepy, but fun images, and just had to colour this one when I saw Amy Young's version of her. The background was totally taken from Amy's card (hope she doesn't mind a bit of obvious inspiration here!). I just loved all the swirls of magic around our beautiful voodoo priestess (but Amy's were better!) I have never done a background like this before and I really enjoyed doing it, even though I didn't have a clue what I was doing :P This card is for A Gem of A Challenge Week 19 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Craft Challenge #518 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 36 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 37 Anything Goes Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread Challenge #128 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Madame Mirlande from Sweet November St

The Paper Shelter Challenge #440 - Birthday

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter . This week our challenge is an easy one - to make a birthday creation. For my card I chose to use the gorgeous Pure Innocence and coloured the scene to look as if the fairy was out in the sea, but thinking about it probably should have made it into more of a lack and added some grass and bull rushes around it!  This card is also for Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 36 Anything Goes Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Girly Creative Moments Challenge #198 Anything Goes Corrosive Challenge #9 Anything Goes Creative Craft Cottage Challenge #133 Include An Animal Recipe: Stamps: Pure Innocence from The Paper Shelter, Fairy Sentiments from Lily of the Valley Papers: Blushing Bride, Highland Heather & Lap of Luxury DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Blushing Bride from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers

Scene it Sunday #14 Featuring Birthday Party and Birthday Boys from The Greeting Farm

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post! The Greeting Farm brought out some more of their fabulous scene building digi stamps again last month, so again, I had to add them to my catalogue! I used the Birthday Boys this time, to add yet another boy card to my stash! I made almost a slimline sized card - it was supposed to be a DL sized card, but was slightly too short to fit, so I made my own card base to fit the image instead! I wanted the scene to look like the birthday boy was receiving all his presents but couldn't add another character in there without it being too full - it is full enough as it is! I love layering all the different elements but I do get carried away sometimes LOL This card is for Dragonfly Dreams Challenge Happy Birthday Traci Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #141 Anything Goes 613 Avenue Create Challenge for September Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 35 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 36 Anything Goes Pat

Something Else on Saturday #72 Frogs from Rachelle Anne Miller

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Not sure if you have seen but Rachelle Anne Miller has recently released lots of stamps in digital format now, so I just had to buy a few! I have some of her clear rubber stamps from many years ago and these images are always really cute! Today I thought I would add another card to my pile for masculine cards and used the frogs image! I thought this was a really fun one, even though I'm not a fan of frogs in real life! I went for a DL sized card and used an old Sizzix alphabet die set that I found when sorting out my spare room. I don't think it had ever been used!  This card is also for Through The Purple Haze Challenge #171 Anything Goes Love To Scrap Challenge #137 Anything Goes Crafty Friends Challenge #144 Anything Goes Allsorts Challenge Week 588 Use A Hand Coloured Image Creative Fingers Challenge #192 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #517 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Frogs from Ra

LeAnn's World 101 Challenge #30 Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from LeAnn's World 101 . As always our challenge is an Anything Goes challenge and you can choose to use any image you wish to enter, but if you choose to use one of LeAnn's image from the store, then you will get extra entries to win the prize at the end of the month! I chose to use the adorable Sandy Scene for my card for this challenge and used my Copics to colour it. I added some touches of glitter to the bubbles and a few more dots for extra smaller bubbles too. The sentiment is a sticker that came in the pack of patterned papers I used. This card is also for Cute Card Thursday Challenge #650 Anything Goes Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #479 Anything Goes Aud Sentiments Challenge #259 Anything Goes + A Sentiment Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #465 Anything Goes A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #123 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Sandy Scene from LeAnn's
