I Adore You card (The Stamping Chef image)

Happy Halloween everyone!

Here's a sassy little image from  The Stamping Chef, she's perfect for a teenager's card isn't she? I used some gorgeous Bo Bunny papers, fussy cutting some of the embellishments out of the papers (ie. the heart, banner, stamps and sentiment). 

I have also used one of  Flourish with a Bling's new flower range, the teal flower on the heart. They come in a range of different colours, to check them out click on the store name. They are only $2 a pack of 4 but this ends tonight and then they'll be $3 a pack.

Out of this World card (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this little monster from DigiStamp Boutique, imagine how many different colours you can colour him especially with his spots too!! I chose to go a black/grey colour but have the background like he is radioactive or something hehe. He can be used for Halloween or any boy cards, he could even look cute as a pink monster for a girl, I'd love to try that sometime!! I added some googly eyes I found at a $2 shop.

Purple Halloween witch (Spesch image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's another Halloween card I created today using a gorgeous little witch from Spesch Designer Stamps. I have forgotten where I got the haunted house image from, I'm very sorry I can't give you details on where you can find it, I believe it may have been a free image online but can't be sure. 

I embossed the purple paper which is still very new to me. I bought heaps of embossing folders but rarely use them as they just haven't become one of my "go to" items yet. Hopefully they will as I always love seeing embossing on bloggers' cards.

Halloween at Di's Digis this challenge! (Di's Digi image)

Hi crafty friends,

The new challenge this fortnight at Di's Digis is Halloween. You can find this gorgeous Halloween image and so many other cute as can be animal images at Di's Digis online store. She really does have the sweetest animal digis around!

I did a fair bit of doodling on this card - the stitching around the image and sentiment and the card border as I still haven't managed to figure out how to use my sewing machine that I got 2 years ago for Christmas! In truth, I did try to read the instructions a month ago but decided it was way too complicated for little ol' me and will wait til my mum next comes around to show me hehe.

My 2nd Christmas Card as Guest Designer for DigiStamp Boutique (DSB image)

Hi crafty friends,

I am so happy to still be guest designing this month at DigiStamp Boutique, they have the most adorable images. I had some of my cards displayed on our stall at a craft show last weekend and I had the most queries about the little DigiStamp Boutique witch image I used, it was very sweet.

This little dog is called Stanley, isn't he adorable? I used some Fluffy Stuff for his hat and the snow but glittered the little snowman. I used one of Flourish with a Bling's new chocolate flowers and their antique gold pearls in a row alternating pearl sizes.
