Crafty Calendar January Challenge - Something New

Good morning all.  Happy New Year. Have you made any new year resolutions for 2017?  One of mine it to get through all the craft kits and projects that I've got before taking on or buying any more so we'll see how long it takes before I break that one.

It's the first Saturday in January so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar and because it's the start of a new year our theme this month is
'Something New'

For this months theme I have made a new baby card and I have used:

Bugaboo Stamps 'Baby Cow Rattle' digital stamp
coloured with copics.
I did add a couple of extra cow markings to the image using one of the Copic Multiliner pens that I had for Christmas, because I just wanted a bit more black on the image.

For the background I have used the My Favorite Things Cow Background stamp
and Razzle Berry Hybrid ink pad.

The greeting is a pre printed one that I had in my stash.

A short bio about All Dressed Up
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Anne Lise and Bettina along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

Crafty Calendar September Challenge - Back To School Card

Good afternoon to all.  Hope you are all well.  A bit later posting today as I've only just got home from work.

It's the first Saturday in September, Autumn is fast approaching and we have a new monthly challenge for you over at Crafty Calendar.

The theme for this month is
'Back To School'
so you can share your altered items, covered books, good luck cards, etc.
My niece is due to start her nursery school this month and is so excited. 

For my card I have used:
Robyns Fetish Digital Stamp 'Katie Reading' coloured with copics.
The DP is from a paper pack I picked up at The Range called Deco Time.  The pack is 32 sheets 6x12 and it has lots of gorgeous glittered patterned papers.
The Dr Seuss quote stamp is from set by Kraftin Kimmie called Bookworm Trinkets.
I made the crayon border using crayon clipart images from 3am Teacher.  I tried to place the crayons in colour order to match the lines on the striped paper.  I think I nearly managed it....

Good afternoon to all.  I hope you are all having a good day.  Can you believe that it's August.....more than half the year has gone already.  This year's been a bit up and down, latest thing is OH's mom being in hospital but she's on the mend now so that's good.

It's the first Saturday of the month and we have a new challenge over Crafty Calendar and our theme for this month is

Here in the UK today the weather is gorgeous and sunny so it was a shame that I went to work this morning and missed some of it.

For my card I have used:
Crab Boat by Bugaboo Digi Stamps coloured with copics and then fussy cut.
The waves have been cut using my cricut and a svg called Wave Border from Miss Kate Cuttables.
The background was created by blending distress inks over some cloud masks.

Crafty Calendar July Challenge - All Dessed Up use a Die or Punch card

Good afternoon.  I hope everyone is having a good day, a little bit late posting today but I had to wait until I'd got home from work.  It's been a few weeks since I posted a card because I had a little bit of an accident with my laptop and managed to smash it's screen (I put something on the keyboard and then forgot it was there and closed the lid....very silly) so it's taken a few weeks to get properly back online.

It's the first Saturday of July so that means we have a new monthly challenge over at Crafty Calendar.
Our theme for this month is
"USE PUNCHES AND/OR DIES".

For my card I have used:
'Smile it's your Birthday' digital image from All Dressed Up coloured with copics.
The heart is cut using a Sizzix die and the film strip was cut using my Cricut Explore and a SVG file called 'Film Strip Frames' from My Scrap Chick 



We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Now off to the Little Craft Room to try to escape the sport overload that going on in our house at the moment with Wimbledon and Euro Championship Football....

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you all soon....

Tiddly Inks Skater Girl Wryn Birthday Card

Good morning .  I hope everyone is well.  What an amazing week of weather we had here in the Midlands.  On Wednesday due to the amount of rain that fell in a short amount of time every route home from work was flooded.   I don't think I've ever seen rain like it, a number of vehicles were submerged, so I decided the only option was to park up and head to the pub to wait it out....I know a number of people that had their homes flooded so I was lucky it just affected my route home.

This weekend is celebrating the Queens 90th Official Birthday with the trooping of the colour and street party in the Mall.  My Brownie pack had our own red, white and blue tea party on Thursday celebrating the occasion with red, white and blue cupcakes, jellies and biscuits and making paper plate crowns.  I have a card to share today and it's just by coincidence it's in a patriotic red, white and blue.

I have used:
Tiddly Inks Skater Girl Wryn coloured with copics.
DP's are from my stash.
Red, white & blue ribbon threaded through a star border die cut


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafting With Friends - Anything Goes
Creative Playground Challenge - Tic, tac, toe (Buttons, patterned paper, ribbon)
Alphabet Challenge - H for Hand Coloured
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
DL ART - Red, White & Blue



Thanks for stopping by and have a good weekend.
