Christmas Penguins

It’s the last Wednesday in March so it’s our usual Christmas themed challenge at Fab’n Funky this week.  Our lovely sponsor is All Dressed Up – with a fantastic prize of 2 digi stamps for the lucky winner.

All Dressed Up gave the Design Team images to play with, and this is my card using Merry Christmas Penguins – available here.

Christmas Penguins

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, fussy cut around the penguins and added glitter to their pompoms.  I made the background using Tim Holtz distress crayons, in Picked Raspberry and Mermaid Lagoon, and some snowflake embossed card.  The 3 snowflakes are punched and the stars are from my stash – all glittered with Imagination Crafts Detail Sparkle.  The sentiment – which I embossed – is a mag freebie, and the pearls are also from my stash.  The die cut trees are from La Cabina Dies – also glittered.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges –

Dreaming of Summer

Last week the weather here was fantastic – the temps got to 24 degrees, we worked in the garden, bbqed and even ate outside.  This week it is cold, we have had a lot of rain and I just can’t wait for summer.

Dreaming of Summer is the title of this gorgeous image from All Dressed Up, which I was lucky enough to win recently.  I coloured it with Copics, and die cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The papers, lace and pearls are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut two Butterfly Flourish dies from Joanna Sheen and placed a second butterfly, distressed and glittered, on top of the base ones.  The flowers, from the Ribbon Girl, are placed over a Lavish Branch from Memory Box and a Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn dies.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Stamp Brand and Why.  ( It’s a really hard choice – but I do love All Dressed Up digis as they’re perfect for cards for girls – young and older – and I make a lot of girly cards.  The images look good on their own – or embellished with die cuts and/or flowers.)                                                                                                                                                  http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.fr/2017/03/favourite-stamp-brand-and-why.html

Hedgehog Popsy Daisy

I made this card using Hedgehogs Popsy Daisy – from Di’s Digi Designs  – for my daughter and son in law’s wedding anniversary.   I love this cute hedgehog image, which was amazing to colour using Promarkers and Copics.  I cut around the image with a stitched circle die, and cut another circle in the same way with a green paper.  The patterned backing paper is from MR Designs and the sentiment is computer generated.  The lace and pearls are from my stash, the web is a Joanna Sheen die which I embossed with Wow embossing powder in Seagrass and the flower is also a die cut.

Cappuccino Pippin

It’s Wednesday again – how the weeks are flying by – and so we have a new challenge over at Fab’n Funky.  Our teamie Sharon has chosen the theme – Children – so anything for a child is right for this challenge.  Our wonderful sponsor is Digital Delights and they are offering the lucky winner a $5.00 voucher for their store.

Digital Delights gave the Design Team some images to play with and this is my card using Cappuccino Pippin.

Cappucino Pippin

I coloured Pippin with Promarkers, added Aleene’s Glitter Snow as the froth on the cappuccino, and die cut around the image with a stitched circle die.  I made a side step circle card with a denim look paper and attached Pippin to it – with ribbon and a pearl heart along the bottom.  The tiny Pippin is peeking from one of the folds and the computer generated sentiment is along another fold.

MP3 with Cats

I made this card for our younger grandson’s 11th birthday, using a digi image from Imagine That – Mason’s MP3 – which I was lucky enough to win recently.  I thought it was a great image for a boy and I coloured it with Promarkers amd Copics.  Our grandson likes his music and is very fond of their 2 cats, so I tried to make these 2 kitties look like the ones they have.  The papers are from Nitwits and the sentiment is a die cut from Sweet Dixie Dies.  The cat’s eyes are gems from my stash.
