DT at Cardmadfairy’s Digi Days

Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge

This time round at Cardmadfairy’s Digi Days, we would like to see you using your Dies and/or Punches.

  We are being sponsored by Debbie at Paper Creator and the lucky winner will win a £10 coupon code to spend on her fabulous site - Debbie has very kindly given the DT some goodies to play with .

I have made the project below, but if i am really honest i am not 100% happy with it but due to my shoulder problems, this seemed to be the best i could do!



It literally is a print and stick together job!  I glittered the snow and added a border of punched snowflakes and some pom pom ribbon.

Thanks for looking.

GDT at Stamping with the Dragon

Hey everyone, I was recently asked to be a Guest Designer at Stamping with the Dragon and of course i said yes!
The theme is SPRING!

I was so excited when i saw the image i was to work with as it suits Spring perfectly!
Wonderful teamie and friend Kate recently sold me some papers and this was in them, (which does mean i don’t know where it is from lol)  The image is coloured with Pros and Flexmarkers.  The butterflies and the wings are glittered with Stickles.  The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So why not pop over to Stamping with the Dragon to enter the challenge, the prize on offer is 4 digis from the store!

I hope you like what i have done here and thanks for looking.

So here is what i did

Please bear in mind i have torn muscles in my right shoulder which is why the cutting out isn’t the best! HAHA
The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I am not sure where the backing paper is from as i have had it so long, so if anyone knows please let me know.  I brought a lot of swirls and punched matting squares from ebay.  I coloured the flowers to co-ordinate with the image and papers.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are from a punch.

How Lucky Am I?

This week has been one of those weeks where everything comes at once.  First i was offered a place on the team at Feline Playful to help them out with posting the winners on Wednesdays.  I felt the need to help out, as i, like many of you i am sure, check Feline Playful daily, for all the winners, challenges, DT Calls, Blog Candy's and so much more.  The ladies on that team do a really amazing job, so if you’re not already a follower pop over and check it out!

Then, as many of you know i am on Facebook and a member of a group called Promarker Passion, which is a group dedicated to talking about Promarkers, giving tips and just sharing our work.  Well last week Paul from Letraset posted on the group that the first 5 people to answer his post would be sent a Brand New Stamp Pack, well of course i messaged him, but thought i was too late, so imagine my surprise on Saturday morning when this came with the post
Inside you receive an A6 stamp exclusively designed by Gillian Roberts, 3 Promarkers: Pink Carnation, Blue Pearl and Buttercup, 6 sheets of A6 White cardstock and a sheet with hints and tips. All for £8.99! Some stamps cost that, so pop over to Letraset and see the other set too!
ProMarker Stamp Pack 1

Here is what i made with it:
I tried to only use the colours provided, the only extras i used were skin colours, green for the leaf and a touch of Sandstone for the hair and a tiny dot of Berry Red for the cherry on the cupcake!  To get the shading you just layer over and over, until you get the desired effect.
The paper is Dovecraft Tea House.  The ribbon is self adhesive.  The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the gems were from my stash.

Thanks for looking.
