Skating Santa

Hope you are having a good Sunday. Wanted to share this card I made using Beccy Muir's 
Skating Santa image and sentiment. It's one of the new releases for October which you can find in her shop. Don't forget there is a new monthly challenge and you don't have to used Beccy's images to enter, do have a look. 

I stared by printing the image and sentiment onto white card. The image was coloured with alcohol markers and glitter. I used Sue Wilson dies on the corners and behind the sentiment. The background paper I have had for many years and think it works well here.

Autumn Craft challenge

Made this card for the Papermill  Direct Autumn Craft challenge. The large pumpkin and leaves were made by free hand cutting the shaped and dry embossing on leaves and paper pricking on the pumpkin. The other pumpkins and leaves were stamped and cut out and coloured with alcohol markers. They were stamped onto white textured card. 
It had been a beautiful day here, hope you had lots of sunshine as well.

Would also like to enter this in the Try it on Tuesday challenge: Autumn.

Mixed media project

Hope you have lovely sunshine like we did. It really warmed up when the sun came out. Wanted to share this mixed media piece I created for a friend's birthday. I am really please with how it turned out. Sorry you can't see the metallic paint very well. The colours do blend much better in real life. Some of the things like the grunge board wings and the scrabble letter I have had for years and finally found a use for them. 
Hope you have a great day and hope the sun shines for you.

God Bless.

Stanley Pumpkin relase

Sharing my cards made using the new release from Beccy Muir called Stanley Pumpkin. As always you get the  Black and White image, coloured and sentiments.  Don't forget the monthly Challenge is still going on so do join in. You can see what the other DT members have done with this adorable image on Beccy's blog.

The first card was made by printing the image and sentiment onto kraft card and coloured with pencils. The leaves were stamped and die cut. The layers were cut from different coloured card using die and layered. 

The second card was made by printing the Stanley image twice and the pumpkin border once. The images were coloured with pencils again. The background was made using white card and shimmer spray which was brushed on. The panels were embossed with an embossing folder. The shaped card was cut out using a die. 

Hope you have a lovely dry day, it's very wet here.

Penny Black cat image

It's been a while since I used any of my Penny Black cat images. There are so many birthday this month I decided this stamp was perfect for one of those cards. The image was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder and coloured with watercolours. I used a Memory box die to cut it out and used three pattern paper (two for background and another one in the flower). 

Entering this in the following challenges:

Good luck card

It's a bit wet here, hope you are having some sunshine. Was asked to make a good luck card and this is what I came up with. The white background was embossed with a Crafter's companion embossing folder. The next layers was a brush background I made a little while ago and embossed it with a leaf embossing folder. I used my new Sheena Douglass die and stamp for the ivy. The sentiment is an Xcut die, the frame is a Sue Wilson die, the butterfly is a Memory box die and the flower die I can't remember the company. 
Hope you have a great Sunday.

Would like to enter this in the Alphabet Challenge: no designer papers.
