My Polar Friend

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Anything Goes’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I’m using the gorgeous image called ‘My Polar Friend’. I’ve chosen to use the pre-coloured image and background but I have printed my image numerous times and created a 3D image.


Here’s another photo that shows the layers better.


I’ve added a couple of Snowflakes from Joy Craft. I’ve added a rhinestone to the centres and then some Dazzling Details to the rest of the snowflakes. I’ve also added Dazzling Details to the trees on the background paper and also to the coat on the main image.

Here’s another angle.

Card: Midnight Muse (Stampin’ Up)

Santa Hugs

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week it’s our….

Holiday Blitz Blog Hop with an ‘Anything Goes’ theme for you.

We have many sponsors and prizes on offer for this challenge which will last for 2 weeks.

I’ve created a 3D item for the Blog Hop and it’s another from svgcuts.  I’m using some gorgeous papers from the Candy Cane Lane Collection by Bo Bunny.

My image is from Magnolia and is the Santa Hugs.


I have stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my Copic Markers. I have then fussy cut out Santa.

The colours I’ve used are: E11, E00, E000, R20, C10, C8, C6, C4, C2, C00, R29, R27, R24, R22, Y28, Y26, Y23.

Here’s a close up of the image.


I’ve sparkled Santa up using some Glamour Dust.

Here’s one last photo of the tree open. It can be used as a gift box or add a battery Tea Light inside like I have.

Holiday Party

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘Z is for Zany’. We are looking for lots of fun, quirky & colourful images for this challenge.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sherri Baldy – ‘My Besties’.

I’ve used one of the My Besties 3D Decoupage sheets for my card today and this one is called Holiday Party.


My card today is what I would call a CAS card.

It’s been very hectic around here with a graduation, school formal, presentation night and general life at this time of year. Even though my card is very ‘clean’ I’m still happy with it. I love the image and the pretty paper I’ve chosen from Nitwit Collections “FQB - Christmas Linen” set.

I’ve added a couple of ‘Precious Snowflakes’ from Memory Box which I’ve place a rhinestone in the centres of and then some Dazzling Details glitter to the remainder of the snowflake.

Here’s a closer look at the image.



Stamps: Sentiment from Lilli of the Valley
Card: Strawberry Slush, Whisper White(Stampin’ Up),  DSP – FQB - Christmas Linen (Nitwit Collections)
