Allsorts Challenge/Brown Blue and Aqua / Stamping Dragon Designs

I made this card for the Allsorts Challenge use Brown Blue and Aqua
and the Stamping Dragon Designs
I used a wonderful image from Stamping Dragon Designs

where i'm lucky to be a FB DT

This digi stamp is one of my favourite images for Christmas and it is also available as a general image
to colour or ready coloured. I coloured it with promarkers and cut it out then layered it on a scrap of white card that i had put purple glitter paste through a mask. Then I layered it on Kraft Card and some purple star patterned mirror board from Creata. I took another piece of Kraft Card and stamped on it with Versamark and the Justrite Secret Garden stamp. Then I brushed blue mica powder over it and set it with some hairspray. I used one of the Grand Square nestabilities and cut a Kraft Card layer and a mirror board layer and put my stamped section on this. I used an 8x8 card with a piece of pale blue and white card on it from my stash. I also made apaper ribbon with a Martha Stewart snowflake die in the purple mirror board, then I used a tonic hearts punch on blue paper and layered it on top. I put my card together with my topper at an angle and used a Crafters Companion Diesire snowflake die to cut some snowflakes which i layered. In my stash i already had the mdf tree which i'd covered with pinflair glitter paste and then put some gold paste through a mask to embellish so I added it to the corner as my finishing touch. Let me know what you think :).

Crafters Companion and Friday Sketch Challenge

This card was made for the Crafters Companion Challenge

and the Friday Sketch Challenge

This is the first time i have entered either of these challenges despite owning quite a few CC products. I have had some more time lately so I went looking on the net and found them. On this card I used the Party Paws bears the CC Christmas tree and the CC Diesire snowflakes. I used some red patterened mirror board from Creata and layered in on some blue card on an 8x8 base. I die cut my topper with a blue mat behind then I used a mask with blue glitter paste through it on white card with a red mat behind. I used an off cut of red snowflake card with the same red mat behind.with a blue paper ribbon across as per the sketch. I put the xmas trees with the topper on top of the glitter paste mat and put some twine across then embellished with the snowflakes and some red gems. I also used the precious snowflake die to embellish with too. I enjoyed combining these but prefer not to use them for too many challenges as it might diminish the joy of acutally creating for something specific. Hope you like let me know plz. :)

A different kind of Christmas Card

Created for
Bunny Zoes Crafts
Challenges for Everybody
A Creative Romance
Crafting from the heart
Countryview Challenges

I created a totally different type of Christmas Card this time starting with my signature 8x8. First I picked my fairy topper from my stash and put some glitter on her wings, then i put some half pearls around the card edge. I used a SB m bossabilities Folder EL 005 on a piece of lilac pearl card. I used my precious snowflake die from memory box along the top and a die cut from my stash behind the fairy. I stamped and embossed a sentiment in purple on shape from my stash. Then i matted the lilac on black card and ran some purple gem string and black and silver gem string from my stash along the bottom. To finish i dotted some lilac gems on the die cuts. This was quite a quick and easy card to make I got the idea from the Bunny Zoes Wings Challenge another great way to get inspiration and make you do different projects for holiday periods.

Christmas Card for Challenges

This card was made for the Challenges 

Christmas all year round
Aud Sentiments
Whoopsi Daisy
Pauli Holifield Crafts
Milk Coffee Challenge
A Creative Romance
 Fashionable Stamping

To make this card I used a 5x7 card base which is unusual for me as I prefer 8x8 but i have lots of other sizes in my box so i'm trying to get them used and get out of my comfort zone at the same time.  I stamped a Kanban stamp in versamark then embossed it in gold embossing powder and cut it out.  I used a red die cut from my stash (no idea what it is) then used a SB die to cut a mat for it in gold.  I then mat and layered these on red card which i punched the bottom with a tonic diamond swing punch and gold embossed card from my stash.  I cut two corners in white pearlescent paper with a memory box die. I added a Merry Christmas and Joy Sentiments and some white half pearls of different sizes. Then I used some baubles and red bows from my stash to finish.  I really love this card now but half way through making it I wasn't a fan at all. It just goes to show that you should persevere cos quite often the last thing you add is what makes the card perfect for you. Every little thing you add can change a card in a big way so don't give up. And remember the only person who has to like it is you others are just a bonus. Personal taste is everything. Till next time.

Less is More

This Card was made for the Less is More Challenge week 14 White on white
and Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge

Its a simple card with maximum impact. I embossed an A5 centura pearl card base with a CC snowflake folder. I used a CC snowflake die and another hanging snowflake die (can't remember who made it). I put a piece of white on white dotted ribbon round the card with another piece of lace ribbon below it from my stash. I covered the larger snowflakes with glue and sprinkled iridescent glitter over them. And i finished it off with some aurora borealis  gemss. I have to say that this card was quite difficult for me and it took a couple of days for it to come together  but I do love the finished project. It took me out of my comfort zone which is a good thing as it made me explore different ideas and areas of card making. When i make any card I look at the finished project and think "would I like to receive this" and if the answers yes great, but if the answers no then its back to square one! I refuse to make a card that i would not be happy to receive.  Everything you make should be the best of your efforts.

I used an 8x8 card which i mat and layered with gold and black card with black and white ribbon across it. I put my sentiment on and used a gold gem strip to finish. I love the finished effect.

Christmas Cards using Stamping Dragon Images

Below are a couple of Quick Christmas Cards I did using some SDD images and bits from my stash.
No 1 is using the gorgeous Winter Beauty I coloured the image with promarkers and then cut it out. The background is done with ink through a snowflake mask and the edges are inked too. I used pads to put the image on and then added an mdf xmas tree that i used green ink to colour too. I put some red glitter on the berries in her hair and some different red gems in the snowflakes and on the tree. 
I am entering this card in the CHCC

This one was done for the December colouring Challenge on the SDD FB page.  Each month you are given an image to colour and make a project with. You then upload this to the site. If you don't make and upload a picture of your project you are not allowed to take part in the next months challenge. A winner is drawn randomly and they receive a prize.  This month we were given the lovely image of Rocky (who is actually the toy are Queen Dragons son had when he was small). My nephew Tyler likes to have a go colouring every Wednesday so I put 4 images on 1 page and printed off a few pages. This gave me lots of images to use so I created a family for Rocky. I coloured them all differently and cut them out using a SB die. I used another SB die to create the red frame for each picture then mounted them on a gold rectangle cut with a SB die.  I used a Crafters Companion icicle die on white pearlescent paper for the bottom of each picture then laid them out. I used a Precious Snowflake die and put 4 or 5 on the card too and to finish i placed some tiny red gems on the snowflakes.

Stamping Dragon FB Design Team entry for week beginning 9th December 2013

For my DT entry i used the Vintage Santa Card kit which is so real and just how i imagine Father Christmas looked. I built the pyramage up and put the Merry Christmas on. I made it for Granda as it just seemed so appropriate. I then layered some brown paper onto gold card and added a broad gold ribbon with a chocolate brown narrow velvet ribbon to draw your eye across the page. I simply layered my image onto this and added 4 gold corners from my stash and a deep red poinsettia cut with a SB die. I am entering this card in Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge

Hi all here's my dt piece for the Stamping Dragon FB page 

I used the pup money wallet on top of a card to give a present and card all in one!

I decoupaged the pup then placed him on the money wallet with the presents in the foreground and behind.  I put a Just for You on wallet and some gold borders. I used and 8x8 card with some green mirri card embossed with a snowflake Crafters Companion folder. I then used a co-ordinating piece of scrap blue card  that i'd put white glitter paste onto through a mask. I used a tonic punch on both sides of another piece of scrap card and some gold ribbon on top of this. I made a white paper flower and put a blue gem in it with some fringed card around it, and some gold leaves. I place a gold matching sentiment on top to finish. Hope you like!

A New Home for Christmas

This card was really appropriate as I have a friend who desperately needs a new home for Christmas. I've used this card in a SDD FB DT Challenge and Its also entered into Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge.

I used brown paper from SDD Coffee cream card papers and red coated shiny card and some white linen card. I cut the 3 sets of panels and then layered them. Then I coloured the image with promarkers and added a white icicle diecut to the bottom.  I used a birdhouse xmas tree decoration and a strip of acetate on it behind the first three panels to make it swing. I put some ribbon and a gem on top. Finally I typed my sentiment and layered it banner style.

A Challenge Entry

I am slowly getting to grips with blogging and being a DT. I find the uploading and writing easy and once I get to grips with software i'll be elected lol. Its hard to believe how far computers etc have come in the past ten years.  I used to teach beginners and now I feel like a beginner. But anyone now i'm confident in my DT role over on SDD FB page I branching out. So I've made this card and it was quite a quick one as i'm it was all pre prepared. I just put the elements together. I used a 6x6 card which I lay a frame mask over and put gold glitter paste through. I found the bears in my topper box and I already had the SB die cut in there too. The tree is an mdf one with double sided adhesive on it and gold glitter on top. I then placed small red and gold gems on it to decorate. I put slightly larger red gems round the outside. And used a gold embellishment behind my sentiment with some leaves and twigs to finish.  I am entering this card in

Winter Beauty Bauble from Stamping Dragon Designs and coloured with promarkers makes an awesome Christmas Card. Also used purple glitter paste thru a corner stencil. Then green glitter paste with a holly stencil added some half pearls in red a couple of gold corners, some gold leaves and green and lilac ribbon.

DT card for Stamping Dragon Designs 8th Nov 2013 using Rupert Fawkes

For this weeks FB DT project I appropriately used the Rupert Fawkes Digi Stamp. I coloured him in with a blue promarker for Rupert and a brown one for the hat and dynamite. For the background I used a piece of blue card and on the corners I used some gold glitter paste thru a starburst firework stencil with a gold gem on each corner. I then layered it onto some gold embossed card. I cut him out with a SB circle die and inked thru it with a blue distress ink, I added some blue dew drops and then cut a gold circle for the back of this. I used a 6x6 card base and folded the top of it corner to corner to make an easel card base then I glue my top piece to this. I used a matching piece of blue and gold card for the bottom and added a gold peel off in each corner then picked a gold sentiment and put it on foam pads for the stopper.
Keep a look out for our Challenge Blog The Dragons Den

Two Christmas Cards suitable for men using a Sheena Douglas stamp, some Spellbinder dies and embellishments from my stash.


Another card suitable for men using a Chloe background stamp and a Crafters Companion Topper with a few embellishments from my stash really easy to make.

Back to my girl fest lol. This card has an mdf xmas tree shape on it which has been gilded using a double side asdhesive sheet and silver gilding flakes. A piece of pink organza has been wrapped round the card base then some plain and patterned matching papers cut with SB dies were layered with the tree on top. A matching pink bow was made with two pins and a large silver gem finished it off.

A while ago as a Challenge on Stamping Dragon Designs FB page where I am a Design Team member as a Challenge I was asked to take a picture of anything in my stash that I had not bought. I had a box of dissected jewellery bits so took a photo. I was then challenged to make a Christmas Card using these so I thought yippee what a treat and set to work using 6x6 card bases. The top card was so easy as I used my fav colour purple and cut out two sized of a Spellbinder Decorative Labels die in two colours. I'd already stamp and embossed a SB bauble with a purple Chloe wow powder. So I simply glued a silver pendant end onto this then onto the die cuts. At the bottom I used a Tonic punch on the edges of  a left over piece of card then added my sentiment which I cut out with another SB die I added a few large and small clear gems to finish.
The second card includes 3 items from my box in green & gold, a pendant bottom, an owl and a bracelet section. I used a green holographic base and put a gold layer on it made with a holly mask and gold glitter paste. As a side border I used a tonic punch on both sides of a piece of green card I used a piece of embossed gold card under it and glue the bracelet section on top. Using an sb bauble die I cut some green and gold bauble from embossed and flat card and layered these. I glued my owl and pendant on top and added some small gems as the string I added a sentiment and that finished my projects.


 Christmas cards I made on Tuesday using some stamping dragon toppers and my glitter paste backgrounds etc. I've had a play with my glitter paste and masks and now have loads of lovely glitter backgrounds etc ready for making more Christmas Cards. I havn't really posted any of my xmas cards lately as not everyone enjoys making xmas cards all the time but I've found the most awesome blog Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge. Like me she makes xmas cards all year round so i'm gonna show lots more of my xmas cards in future.

Alternative Xmas Wreath


Christmas Decoration
I made this using some bits I had and some leaves from Stamping Dragon Designs

I cut some leaves from gold blue and green card then I cut a circle and laid the leaves around that and added some other gold ones I had. The centre is a small £1 decoration from Tesco lol. I also cut some poinsettias in gold and red and added red berries in the centres and all the way round. Then I put a gold bow at top to finish. I love it.

Todays little project for the Make a Gift Challenge over on the Stamping Dragon Designs fb page.
I found the tutorial on ebay and the project itself (Easel card drawer) was straight forward but unfortunately I had some problems with my Graphic 45 papers. They kept tearing :(. Oh well I finally finished it! I also used a digi stamp from Dragons Lair called Penny's Discovery

This card is made using a topper from the Whimsical Christmas Mini Kit found at the
Dragons Lair Designs.

I used a 6x6 card base on which I placed a border mask and put silver glitter paste through it. I took some xmas paper from my stash to co-ordinate with my topper and some silver card. Using a Tonic die I cut an oval from the patterned paper any layered a silver one behind. I used a SB bauble stamp and embossed it in pink. I cut a small silver circle to mat my topper on then I put this on my bauble and then onto my die cut shapes. I used a small holly die and stamped it in green on each corner. I then added some pink gems as berries. I found 4small peel off bows and added them on the corners of the glitter paste frame. I finished by adding my sentiment.  You can find it here at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra which is for any Christmas Card.

Monday, 28 October 2013

This card was meant to be a quick card as I had a kit from Crafters Companion and used a topper and paper from it but as usual it took me ages on the embellishments. I also used a Crafters Companion Xmas tree die. A added some gold ribbon at the bottom with a red and gold bow and a gem on top. I put some xmas holly down the side with some gems for my stash then added my sentiments. And finally I put some polar white flower soft from Katy Sue to give dimension and texture.
My Christmas card made for this is my first time entering after a friend told me about it when she saw my xmas cards. My card is made using Stamping Dragon Designs Whimsical Christmas Mini Kit I used the background paper and topper which I cut with my sb die. I used a music stamp I rec'd in a magazine and as my images are carolling snowmen it worked perfectly. I simply placed a smaller circle over my image to mask it put glue on the exposed bit then glittered it. I added a bow and some snowflakes from my stash and my card is complete. Hope you like.

Hi to everyone hope you're all having fun crafting. This is my inspiration make for the fb dt of Stamping Dragon Designs.  This was a pretty simple and quick card to make. As usual I used my 8x8card except in cream (I can't seem to use anything else)lol.  I made this for my stepsons 30th birthday. I printed off the smile tab and the definition sample after taking them into word and adjusting them how I wanted. I used a piece of black card which I embossed in a CC folder. Then I used my alphabet and number dies to cut out the year he was born, his age and saying.  I used a SB die to cut out the layers for the age then I simply put it all together. So I hope you like it and find some inspiration from it. Pop over to Stamping Dragon fb page and you'll find lots more and some lively chat and fun. See you there. :) also check out our sister blog the Dragons Den

The Family's come to visit
My October Colouring Challenge card for the Stamping Dragon Design fb page.

My crazy clown balloon picking
This is my DT card for SDD fb page for week commencing 18th October.  I already had this clown balloon image and new it would be perfect for it. I chose my colours from the image, I used blue yellow and red card in layers. I put the top blue layer thru a Crafters Companion embossing folder. I used one single balloon image to create this. I copied my balloon into Word then copied and pasted it multiple times. I cut out some of them and using a die cut tree from my stash which I coloured I stuck balloons all over it. I put some grass underneath then placed my clown beside it as though he's picking balloons.  For the top I coloured my balloons then used a tonic diamond swing punch to make a decorative edge. I used some soft blue ink on the edges and put a few blue shimmer flowers thru at intervals and that completed my card.

This is my card made for the October card swop on Stamping Dragon Designs fb page. I put double sided adhesive sheet on a piece of black card then put a plastic circle mask over it and rubbed mica beads on the exposed part to create texture. Then I carefully removed the mask and put gilding flakes where it had been. I printed off my image and coloured the pumpkins and owls in then I took a blue alcohol pen and using the broad end totally covered the the whole image and cut out using a SB die. I cut out another spooky tree this time a plain one (also on sdd website). I coloured it orange to match the pumpkins. In the bottom right hand corner I placed a small pumpkin stencil with a witches hat an put glitter paste thru it. I added some leaves and some bats and my Halloween card is finished.

Friday, 18 October 2013

For my Stamping Dragon Designs DT project this month I made two cards. I used the folk art
digi. I printed the button banner off in different sizes and coloured them in. In the top one I also used jiggy and turned the buttons into a kite for him to fly. Then I used the banner in large format and made him a frame.  In no two I started a pirate party lol. I found the topper in my stash so I used the buttons as a banner and put party onto it. My pirate is on red and black card and the background is a paper from my stash with red an white leaves on it. Its also matted on the same red and black card. I found a treasure box stamp and put it onto brown card. Then I hunted through my box with the dissected jewellery in it and found a coin a padlock a steering wheel and some coloured jewels for the treasure to finish off. An awesome card that I love.
