Halloween Window Hanger

I decided to make up a window hanger for this image.  
I used Wordart image from The Stamping Chef, the backing papers are from the internet, cant remember where and they are spider and webs for the main backing part and the green is a Happy Halloween paper.
I used a blaped two blue rose flowers round it found and wrapped two blue rose flowers round it and placed two white glitter dots top and bottom of the ribbon.  I wrote BOO with pink glitter lettering and placed 3 pink dots along the bottom.  I used a Miss Kate Cuttable Bat which was cut out using my Silhouette and put 3 green and 4 red rhinestones along the bottom of the image and a green felt vine along the top.
The image was coloured in using Letraset Promarkers.

This was the card I made awhile ago for a challenge with The Stamping Chef that I didnt manage to get complete ontime but was asked to show it anyway.

The image is called Desdemona and is from The Stamping Chef.  The backing papers I found online, the 31 and Happy Halloween are from MissKateCuttables.

The Mane Event Challenge

This was for a challenge I took part in for The Stamping Chef called The Mane Event.  I decided to go down the Paris and a Show Girl route for my theme and considering I put it all together at 4am this morning, due to my little boy being wide awake, I think that it has come out rather well.  Not the best picture though, will look at redoing this at some point x

Further Birthday Cards

For my Dad's birthday, I decided to use a lovely little dog digi, as both mum and dad are great dog lovers.  Unfortunately I couldnt find a Spanial or Big Shaggy Dog digi to use as these are the to dogs they have, Jess and Bailey.

For my Father-in-Laws birthday card, I took that they like to travel and enjoy both camping and cruising.  So I found this lovely stamp of cocktails on a beach.  It was very well recieved.

For my sisters birthday card I used a digital stamp I got from Simply Betty Stamps and made this lovely pink and purple creation, even though Jeanette isnt very girly. She does love dragons like me, so I choose a Rio n Toots design, link to follow.  I used Baby Pink and Lime Green Promarkers to colour in Rio, Toots is purple and I used some glitter on one of the pillows and Toots headpiece. The accents and papers were freebies from Papercraft Magazine.

The link for purchasing Rio n Toots is:-

For my Brother-in-Laws Birthday card I used a camping digital stamp, as they are very much into their camping holidays.  I think this was very much the ideal card for a man with the use of blue.

Grand Duchess

My First Design Team creation for The Stamping Chef.  This is for a challenge starting on the 23rd October and is to give participants an idea of the sort of thing to make.  

The requirements for this was 1 image, 2 papers and 3 flowers.  I decided to do image Grand Duchess and tried to keep the theme sophisticated and inline with the image.

New Baby

This card was made for a lovely couple who are about to have their first baby in November.  They are not giving away whether they are having a girl or boy so I tried to keep the card as neutral as possible.

The image is by Redonkadoodles whose digital stamps I love and they are lovely and easy to colour.

Oliver's Christening Card

I had a lot of fun trying to decide what to do for his Christening card and what embellishments to use to decorate it.

I wanted it to look classic but not too plain and simple.  I think I got the balance right and as this was one of my first ever cards that I have ever made and its for my son's christening it was very personal to me and I am very proud of what I achieved.

Fortune Teller Betty and Voodoo Corinne Simply Betty Challenge

This is my entry for the Simply Betty Stamps Challenge and I have so far done 'Fortune Teller Betty', who I loved colouring.  

The requirements were the use of Rhinestones and Crystal Accent.  I used the Rhinestones for the chandelier, the smaller flowers insides and around the red glitter backing paper.  I also used a green Rhinestone for the Crystal Ball, which I hope works.  I added some glitter to her scarf to give her that crystal shimmer which I hope covers the crystal accent side of the requirements.

This is a two stamp challenge, if we wanted to, and I am hoping to add 'Voodoo Corinne' to the challenge before the closing date.

Hope you like my creations x
