Strawberry Pixie Basket

Hello. Today is the start of a new challenge at Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog. The theme is Anything Goes and we'd love to see some creations from you. As inspiration for Lemon Shortbread I've created this Strawberry Basket Project that I'd like to share with you. I've used Lemon Shortbread's Strawberry Pixie digital stamp. I thorough that she was the perfect image for this project!!

I've coloured her skin with Spectrum Nor Markers and everything else with Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils. I've created the basket then added satin roses, small butterfly punches and a small bow.

I'm going to be adding this project to the Lemon Shortbread Facebook Group. It would be awesome if you add any creations you have made to this group for us all to see.

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - #136 Things With Wings (Small Butterflies)

I hope that you like my project!!

ABM - Classy Cheryls Christmas

Hello. Today I'd like to share a Christmas card I've made using this month's Art By MiRans Facebook Progressive Challenge digital stamp. She is called Classy Cheryl and can be found at the Art By MiRans Etsy shop.

I wanted to create something different with this lovely lady to show the diversity that can be created with Classy Cheryl. She would make a lovely summer or autumn card. But I've gone for a indoor winter scene. I've coloured her with Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. I've created the fireplace myself with layered up pieces of card. Some of which are embossed with Sizzix brick effect embossing folder. Then I added stocking from a different embossing folder created by Design Objectives that I fussy cut and stuck on. The sentiment and holly have come from a stamp set called Holiday Wishes by Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Overall I think the card has come out ok.

Here is a picture of the finished card.

Here is a view from the side so you can see the layers and dimensions I've added.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

GSD Cute Fox Snow Globe Card

Hello. Today I finally got round to finishing of this snow globe Christmas card. This adorable little guy is called Cute Fox. You can find him at Gerda Steiner Designs online shop. He is this month's digital stamp for Gerda Steiners Designs Progressive Challenge.

So I've tried something a little different with this card. I've coloured all the elements this includes the digital stamp, die cut tree and Xcut dies using different coloured ball point pens. I've not tried this technique before bur I'm really pleased with the end result. The sentiment is a Fiskars Rubber Stamp. I created the shape card by putting together some pre-made shapes on my Brother Scan 'N' Cut to create the globe shape I wanted. Here is a couple of pictures of my creation.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges

I hope that you like my creation.

Thinking Of You Moonlite Mermaid

Hi. I'm stopping by today to share a Thinking Of You card. I've used a image called Moonlite Mermaid made by Art By Barb. If you haven't seen her digital stamps yet you should pop over to the Art By Barb Facebook Group and check them out. They are all so gorgeous!!

I've coloured this image mainly with Distress inks. I think my Sky colour needs a bit of work. I've added homemade texture paste to the moon and clouds to make them 3D and add texture. I've  also used tiny gems as stars in the sky. I've finished of with a sentiment from a Tatty Twinkle CD, flowers and a homemade bow. I had so much fun creating this card!!

Here's a picture of the card.

Here is a close up of the image.

Posies Girl Relaxing

Hi. I'm posting this times Lemon Shortbread Challenge number 21 design team project late. This is due to me being on holiday with very bad internet connection. Anyway I'm back now and ready to share this very flowery pop up box card using Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamp called Posies Girl.

The first teacher my daughter had has just retired. She had a big impact on my daughter and two years later still talks about her. So I made a card for her. My daughter helped arrange the flowers with me.

She has been coloured with Spectrum Noir Markers. Then I cut her out and stuck her to Xcut Swirl dies. I've made flowers and added pearls to the centres. The wording is from a blog called Create With TLC on the blog you can find a link to there store.
