Creative Inspirations: seasonal

Image
Hello, We are back at Creative inspirations after a long summer break and our new challenge is Seasonal. It can be any season, so something autumny or perhaps your still not over summer! For mine, I chose Christmas. I'm not really one for making Christmas cards for months, just one now and again but recently I bought some Christmas bestie images so I had to share this one. The Fluffies are some of my favourite images! I coloured this one with a mix of Promarkers and spectrum noirs and used festive floral papers from Nitwit collections, matted on green mirror card. I finished with a bow, bell and sentiment.

The Paper shelter: Embossing

Image
This week over at The Paper Shelter we have a new challenge and it is the A Teams time to host. Our challenge theme is embossing of any kind. I used the new image, Ice Hockey for this little easel. The paper came from an DIY set of papers from Nitwit collections. I matted everything on red. The image is coloured with Promarkers. I embossed my panel and strip with a dotty folder and added ribbon to the strip. I finished with a sentiment.

Josephina

Image
Hello, This card features the bestie image, Josephina. It's not very often I make a card that is in darker tones or has a steampunk edge but I think this one turned out well. I coloured my image with Promarkers, then matted on black. The papers are from M&C collection at The Works, again matted on black. I cut out some butterflies from the pad and added those along with black lace and finished with a sentiment.

Hello, I have something a bit different to share today featuring an image from one of the house mouse decoupage packs.

Whimsy Birthday Penguin

Image
Hello, Today I have another card to share featuring one of the Penguin images from Whimsy stamps. I LOVE these penguins! For my card I used Penguin with prezzie, coloured with Promarkers and spectrum noirs. I chose to make a birthday card, using an older nitwit collections paper pad, all matted on white. I finished with flowers, ribbon and a sentiment.
Challenges: As you like it: flora or fauna and why? This is a difficult one for me as I use a lot of both on my cards. I am an animal lover so a lot of images I use feature animals, seeing as I am known for my cute cards but I also love adding flowers to things, so much so I often have to stop myself from adding them to everything I make! Based on that, I would say fauna.

Hello, I have a card to share today featuring a My Bestie image. This is called snapshot Sally. I cropped the image by die cutting into a circle. One of my favourite things to do with my circular dies is to play around and create backgrounds so I used a mix of papers from Nitwit collections happy too range.

I coloured my image with Promarkers and added sequins, pearls and a sentiment to finish.

Whimsy Penguin Couple

Image
Hello, Last week I treated myself to some of the super cute penguin stamps from Whimsy stamps. I would love to use some of the Christmas images for my Christmas cards this year, but they seem to have sold out everywhere. After seeing them featured on a few blogs and on pinterest I had to get them! For this card I used the penguin couple, coloured with Promarkers and die cut into a circle. Colouring scenes I actually find quite difficult, sometimes they look ok others I don't like them at all but colouring classes usually feature copics rather than Promarkers. I used Nitwit collections Cherish papers, currently my favourite papers in pretty peach and pastel blue. I added some ribbon, flowers, pearls and an anniversary sentiment to finish.

LOTV: Christmas Crossover Card

Image
Hello, I haven't had a lot of time in the past week to share many creations (or even craft for that matter!) as I've been busy looking after my pup after his op last week. After a bit of an emergency at the weekend he is now recovering well. So well in fact apart from some bruises, you wouldn't know he'd even had an op! He seems to be getting back to his usual mischievous self.
Anyway, back to my card. I made this for the LOTV August challenge which this month was Christmas.  It's been a while since I used an LOTV stamp and this is one of my older ones. I love the little girl decorating her Christmas cake, it reminds me a bit of myself as I love to bake at Christmas, mini Christmas cakes, mince pies, gingerbread anything really but it is something that I always associate with the holiday season.
