Snow woman


   I have been asked to be a guest designer for Scrapbook Stamp Society (http://addicted-to-stamps.blogspot.co.uk) and this is what I created.
   It is not often that you come across snow women and this one has a rather fancy hat! The digi is from Scrapbook Stamp Society and after colouring it using Promarkers I rounded the edges using  a punch and matted it onto red card. The background paper is from the Berry Merry paper pad by Jennifer Ellory and I matted and layered it onto red followed by white card. The decoupaged die cut flowers were created using the Christmas Rose Tattered Lace die and again coloured using Promarkers.

Ghosts



   This is the front of my card I made using the ghost digis from Scrapper's Delights. I matted and layered halloween paper printed from a My Craft Studio download onto black mirri and white card then attached two of the ghosts.
   Inside my card I made some pop up letters and attached three more ghosts playing among the them. I used more of the printed paper as a background.

Popcorn with balloons


   For this fortnight Send A Smile 4 Kids would like to see celebration cards for their challenge. The sponsor for this challenge is Repeat Impressions who are offering a $15 gift certificate as their prize.
   I have chosen to celebrate a birthday and have used a long forgotten Popcorn the Bear stamp called smile. After colouring it using Promarkers I matted it onto card using a punch to round the corners of both the image and the mat.
   The design paper was printed from the accompanying CD ROM from Crafter's Companion and after matting this onto card I wrapped two vertical strips of satin ribbon round it before matting it onto white card. Again a punch was used to round all the corners.
   I finished the card with a stamp of Popcorn's little duck friend, cutting this out using a Spellbinder's die and matting it onto card.

Happy birthday pumpkin


 
   This week along with the usual anything goes theme the QKR Stampede challenge has the twist  pumpkins. I decided to make a card for an autumn birthday.
   I wrapped three rows of narrow ribbon around some spotted paper that I had in my stash.and then matted and layered this onto orange followed by white card. The image called thinking was coloured using Promarkers then cut out using an oval die and matted onto another piece of orange card. The pumpkins used as embellishments were cut from a page from Hunkydory's Little Book of Autumn. The sentiment was a black peel off.
