Magical Christmas

The backing scenic paper is from a pad from Katy Sue Designs along with the reindeer topper and sentiment.

New Challenge Blog Starting 1 October 2014!!!!!

Recently the ever so talented Ching-Chou Kuik held a digital stamps Design Team call.  I first came across Ching-Chou Kuik's images some years ago and instantly fell in love so I had to apply.

I got the wonderful news that I had been chosen as one of the Design Team members.  We have a group on Facebook but thought it was important to "share the love" of these stunning images throughout Blogland so a "Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog" was born and I became the Design Team Leader.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Ching-Chou Kuik is a very talented lady who creates such wonderful images.  These are available at her Etsy Store at:


Here you will find a wonderful selection of images which include witches, spooky, gothic, cats, dogs, birds, insects, various animals, mermaids and the ocean.  Throughout the month new images will be added to the Etsy Store so please make sure you check it out frequently.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In addition to the Etsy Store there is a Facebook Group where the Design Team share their cards/creations but then anyone that creates something with Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps can show their cards/creations too.  The Facebook Group can be found at:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
There are four members of the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Design Team and they are:
Kym.

The Design Team members will have an allocated day of the week and they will show you a card/creation that they have made using one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
On 1 October 2014 there will be a monthly challenge starting here on this blog.

The rules of the Challenge Blog are simple and are pinned to the blog sidebar and a page at the top of the blog for ease of reference.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In between the days that you will see cards/creations from the Design Team you will see:

(1)  Details of any new images that will be available in the Etsy Store
(2)  Details of any special offers that will be available at certain times of the year.

The Design Team also think it would be a nice idea throughout the month to showcase cards/creations that are entered into the challenge or added as inspiration onto the Facebook Group.  When I first started out in cardmaking I would have loved to have seen my cards on a blog so we are sure many of you crafters will enjoy it to.

Seeing these cards/creations will help to inspire others.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As you will see from this post there is going to be a lot going on throughout the month.

Ching-Chou Kuik and the Design Team hope you will join in with the challenge and also with the Facebook Group.

Happy crafting!!

Delicious Doodles Challenge - Friday 26 September 2014 - On the Darker Side!!

 It is Friday and therefore time for another challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog.  This week the topic is "on the darker side".  
I decided to go with a Halloween theme.  For my card I have used the Delicious Darkness image called "Horrorscope - Aquarius" - doesn't she look scary?  I think if I met her I'd have to try running the other way!!!  I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  I have coloured in the background with two grey Graph'its and then added some dots with a Docrafts Pearlescent pen.  I have distressed around the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink.
  
The backing papers I have used are from a new set of papers from Bearly Mine Designs called "Halloween Fantasy".

I have finished the card off with some fibres, tulle (behind the image and also cut into a strip and tied to the fibres), washi tape, sentiment off the computer and some Martha Stewart punched out bats.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create - Anything goes or create your own challenge
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes and/or pink for breast cancer
Incy Wincy - Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
My Time to Craft - Fantasy
Eureka Stamps - Vintage or distressed
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
Simon Says - Anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Lots of layers
Inky Impressions - Anything goes
The Stamping Chef - Anything goes
Creative Moments - Anything goes/use 3 layers
A Step in the Dark - Anything goes
Paper Pretties - Halloween/fall
Aud Sentiments - Halloween sentiment
Brown Sugar Challenge - Anything goes
Left of Centre - Fairytales
