Love To Paint

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, followers and Visitors


Welcome to today's  challenge #  78 
( This will be our last one this year) over at 


 and the theme is

ANYTHING GOES 

Our sponsors for this challenge are :-

A Day For Daisies

Prize $12 Gift Certificate


Prize 3 Digi Stamps 




Prize 7 Digi images of winners choice


My card has been made using the image Finger Paint from
A Day For Daisies and if you would like to purchase, then
please click on the link HERE.

DETAILS
1. Using a 7 x 7 card I first matted it with kraft card.
Next layer is paper from my stash and I  then
inked around the edges.

2. Cut another square of kraft card and to this
I have adhered a piece of marble paper from
Craftwork cards paper pack Marble. I die
   cut it using Spellbinder Grand Scalloped Squares.
Mounted onto card with foam tape. Again inked
around the edges

3. Took a circle die and again the marble paper
and die cut it. Attached this to a circle of kraft
card and again adhered to card. Same as the
other die, inked the edges.

4. The image was printed onto water colour card
and I coloured it using Derwent Inktense Pencils
( Only the second time of using but I have done 
my best). This was then die cut with a circular
die mounted onto a circular kraft card. I then
used distress ink to cover the frame as I did
not want to leave it white.

To complete I have added Nuvo Jewel Drops
(these are awesome) around the image and
in the top and bottom left hand corner.

All that remains is for me to wish you 

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
HAPPY NEW YEAR.

See you again in  2017 ( I hope)

Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting

My card has been made using the gorgeous image
Walking With You from Small and Round and
you can purchase it HERE.

DETAILS
1. Taking an 8 x 8 card I created an easel card. I then
matted both top and bottom with blue card.

2. I created another mat from white card and embossed
using a daisy embossing folder. Before attaching to
the card I glittered each flower using Stickles and
left to dry.

3. The card on the bottom is from Craftwork Cards
paper pack Marble. I have then added two strings
of gems to act as the stopper. Added two just
because I could and wanted to add a little
more sparkle.  These gem strips I found in
Home Bargains in the Wedding Section and
were quite cheep but they look amazing and
really do sparkle.

4. The image was coloured with my Copic and
I added sparkle around her using Sparkle
gel pens. Added tiny gems to the stars around
her head and put some in her hair but sorry they
do not show up very well.  Glossy accent added
to the flowers in her hair and on her eyes.
She was the die cut using SB die Elegant Ovals
and mounted onto the card with foam tape.

So there you have it, all that remains for me to say is
I wish everyone a

 Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

Hope you have a fabulous Christmas

Until Next Time
As Always

 so really easy and so much fun as the choice is yours.

The prizes for three randomly picked winners will be digi papers

there are some fabulous ones). Also there is a Freebie Friday, where

Challenge Blog http://abitmoretimetocraft.blogspot.com.au/

DETAILS

1. Started with an 8 x 8 white scolloped edge card added
backing paper from the Christmas papers from Lozzy.
Before it was adhered I have wrapped a piece of lace
across the centre and rounded the edges of the paper.

2. I took a topper from a Hunky-dory collection that
I had in my stash, I took my craft  knife and cut a slit
in the back for her headband and inserted three small
pink feather to give the topper an bit more lift.
She was then matted  onto silver mirri card and
then adhered to the card at a slight angle.

To complete I added pearls to the top left and bottom right
of the card, added the sentiment with foam tape and
added a pearl to this also.

So there you go, a very quick but I think stylish card, in fact
I think I will be giving this card to my mum for Christmas
as pink is one of her favourite colours.

Thank you for calling and all the lovely comments that
you leave, I really do appreciate them.

Until Next Time
As Always

Our sponsor for this challenge are :-

Digital Delights

Prize $ 5 Gift Certificate from the store

and you can purchase her HERE.

DETAILS

1. Using an 8 x 8 white card I matted it with paper
from The Blissful Teal collection by Anna Marie
Designs, before matting to the card I first wrapped
a piece of lace across the bottom section. Also I
die cut the snowflake border from mirror card and
adhered this to the top of the card, again before
the backing paper was adhered.

2. The image has been coloured using the new Spectrum
Noir Illustrator Pens (still in the process of getting
the hang of them).  She was then die cut and mounted
onto two more oval frames that were cut from mirri
card and joined together.  I then adhered the image
to the card with foam tape.

3. Using silver  mirri card I die cut the shooting star
( die from Sweet Dixie) and the flourish, this is
from Tattered Lace.

4. With a poinsettia die I die cut three flowers, coloured
up and added glitter to their edges. The centres were
created using Nuvo Cystrals.

To complete I added teal gems to the snowflake border,
the shooting star and also the flourish. Added three
gems at top left and bottom right of the card.

Thanks for calling,
Until Next Time

Don't Hold The Glitter

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Welcome to challenge # 16 our last one of the year
 over at 
The theme for this months challenge is

Add Some Glitter

GD after your name when you link up.

DETAILS

1. Started out with an 8 x 8 scalloped edged white card and
to this I have added a Snowflake border die that I glittered
up first.

2. Next I added another piece of card that I printed off
with a backing paper from the Polkadoodles cd
Frosted Winter. The image in the corner was also
glittered up.

3. I then printed off the matching pre coloured image and
           fuzzy cut.  Before cutting I went over the background using
         Pan Pastels to give a softer look.  Again a lot of the image
had glitter added before adhering to the card.

4. Using a snowflake and snowflake corner die I cut then
out of centura pearl card and then added glitter all over.
Once dry I then adhered to the card.

DETAILS

1. With a 7 x 7 white card I first matted it with gold mirri
card that I have embossed with reindeers. (Sorry the card

to lighten it there was to much glare from the mirri card.)

2. Next I added  a piece of burlap across the centre.

3. The topper has been taken from the cd Yuletide Wishes
from Ooh La La. I have used the smallest one and
adhered to the card using foam tape.

the tag and three in the top left hand corner and

DETAILS
1.  I took an 8 x 8 card and made it into an Easel card.

gold card and adhered this to the card.

Dancing Penguin

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

Hello to you all. How are we all doing?

Welcome to challenge # 47 over at


The theme is as always

Anything Goes 

My design team buddies have created some fabulous
cards, well worth taking a peek. I am sure you are
bound to find inspiration from their  work

Our sponsors  for this challenge are:-

Fred She Said


Prize $12 Gift Card

and

The Stamping Boutique/Glitterbabe

Prize 2 but 3 images if using TSB/GB images

For my card I have chosen to use the image Dancing Penguin
from Fred She Said and you can purchase it HERE.

DETAILS
1. Using pale blue card I created a stepper card. It was then
matted with paper from the Christmas papers from Lozzy.
2. Next I die cut the silver mirri board and adhered to the
centre of the card.
3. The next layer is dark blue hessian laid across the card
4. The image is a pre coloured one and I have used a pin
hole circle die to cut it out. Before attaching to the card
I added glitter to his hat and around the show. It was
adhered to the card with foam tape.

The image came with 4 smaller images so I decided to
use two on the front and the other two inside,
  and again these also have had glitter added
and were cut using the same set of circle dies as
the larger one.
To complete I created a snowflake from the Christmas
paper and again glittered before mounting onto the card.


I would like to wish you and your loved ones

A Very Happy Christmas and NewYear
See you in 2017
