Creative Craft Challenge - Glamour Puss

This is my DT card for this fortnights challenge over at Creative Craft challenges and the theme is "Glamour Puss"

I know I'm a couple of days late but every night this week I've been busy cutting out teddy bear shapes in fun fur for my Brownie meeting tonight and I can't believe the mess I've made of the spare/craft room - They decided they wanted do do their Toymakers badge and just had to make teddy bears, I'm going to be finding bits of fur for weeks.

For my card I've use the Pink cat Studio image "Kitty Fashionista " and I think she looks glamorous.


We are sponsored by "Little Claire" for this challenge and these gorgeous stamps (Can't make tea... and Lilies" are on offer to the winner.


Don't forget we have a DT call open until the 10th October.

Chocolate Lime Christmas Card

I decided for this card to follow the colour challenge of "chocolate and green" over Crafty Catz. As you can see I'm still in Christmas mode, I wasn't sure if this colour combo would work for a Christmas card but I think it turned out OK....

I have used the Whiff Of Joy stamp "Wee and Reindeer" coloured with copics and the DP is from the Dovecraft "Jolly Happy Christmas" paper pack. The snowflakes are made using the Marianne D Swedish Ice Star die cutter set with a covering of lots and lots of my favourite glamour dust.

Rock Idol Birthday Card

This card is for my brother for his birthday. He's going to be 34 this week and he plays the guitar so I just had to use this Sugar Nellie image "Rock Idol".

The card is based on the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl


I've used the Sugar Nellie image "Rock Idol" coloured with copics (I had terrible trouble trying to get the hair colour right - I wanted it reddish - but not too red - I think I got it in the end). The DP's are from the Dovecraft "Funky Vintage" paper pack.

Vintage Style Christmas Tilda

This card is different to my normal style of cards but I fancied a bit of a change.

I have used the Magnolia image "Tilda with Tinsel" coloured with copics. I've applied a layer of Crackle Paint over the top of the image and then sponged it with "Brushed Corduroy" Distress ink. The Christmas script DP is from the DCWV "Christmas Wishes" paper pack and the pink dotty paper is from a Laura Ashley paper pack.

The flowers have been made from a sheet of Laura Ashley paper using my cricut.
