Back to School Challenge DT Card using Crafts and Me stamp

Hello and Welcome!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge theme this week is Back to School! The digi stamp I used is from Crafts and Me and is called Book Worn Fairy. Such a beautifully detailed and gorgeous stamp. Here is my card . . .   



I chose a background paper that had letters on it - a bit schooly and then matched my Promarkers, papers, paper clips and card candi to match. I die cut some folder tabs and cut out a strip of stars, with a red paper underneath to add some intrest to the card. Decorative elements that make me think of school. I coloured the image with Pro-Markers and added glitter to the fairies wings for some extra magic.

I have entered my card in the following challenges:

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a commissioned card I made a friend. I used the lovely Christening stamp by Lili of the Valley and used various dies and papers to create a soft and pretty card.
 


I used Pro-markers and layered the different papers to create texture. To finish I used a Wink of Stella pen and some gems for the flowers.

Sketch Challenge DT Card using A Day For Daisies Digi Stamp

Morning Everyone!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge this week is to create a card from the challenge sketch. The digi stamp I used is from A Day For Daisies and is called Water Baby Nap. Such a cute image and makes me think back to when my Little Girl was a baby.  Here is my card . . .   



This is the Sketch:


I used Distress inks to create the background, with water and white acrylic flicked on to create bubbles. I coloured the image with Pro-Markers to match my distress ink and backing card and used mini pearls and a white pen for extra detail. To finish I added a stamped and die cut greeting with some ribbon.

Design Team News and card using Morgan's ArtWorld Digi Stamp

Proudly announcing that I now design for the Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog. I will be working with many awesome digi stamp companies and the first digi stamp is from Morgan's ArtWorld called Cameo 13, such a fab image. The challenge theme is Anything Goes, here is my card . . .
  


I used Pro-Markers to match my backing papers and a gold pen for extra detail. I decided soft colours and lace would make a statement against the bold mint green, with die cut "hello" and feathers to tie in the image.

Mama Elephant - Bear Hugs Anniversary Card

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made for my parents anniversary. I used distress inks and water to create the galaxy / night time starry background and the Bear Hugs stamps from Mama Elephant for the stamped image.
 

I love blending inks and using a toothbrush to flick water onto the card to make a night sky - so much fun and a really pretty way to make your own background papers. I also Spritzed the background in a shimmery silver to make it more magical. To finish I added die cut and stamped letters, the cute bears and the little moon - tied to the letters with cotton.

I have entered this card in the following challenges : 
Crafts Galore Encore - Use a stamp for August
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes Aug Challenge
613 Avenue Create - Aug Challenge Anything Goes
