Holly Wreath Fairy - Crafts and me - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Winter Wonderland, where our theme 'Non-traditional Christmas colours was chosen by Christine.  I always love this theme because we get so many colour options to view. I have used a fabulous image by Hannah Lynn which is available from Teresa's shop at Craft's and me. It can be found here.


And here she is. Not my usual gallery of photos today as my camera did a nose dive and I couldn't get it to work after taking a couple of pictures of this image.

I fussy cut her and then created the background using matt silver mirror board, which I embossed with a darice snowflake folder. I also cut two of the decorative edges for the  concertina cards. (Shame I hadn't waited another day as I got the snowflake one on Tuesday.
I added lots of gems and pearls for extra bling Then added Flower soft to her furs and glitter to her wings and the stars in the wreath. Ribbon, dazzler, and charms from my stash.


A close up of the image. Doesn't she have amazing eyes??
She is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.  It's great how the ultra fine nibs allow colouring of tiny spaces.

So what about getting started on your Chyristmas cards and join us in our challenge

The lovely Teresa at Crafts and Me has a voucher for £8 to spend in store for the lucky winner

I have used a sponsor's image called Country Cow Girl from All Dressed up which can be found here.



She is cut using a Tattered Lace oval with the next layer cut from glitter card and the next with rainbow mirror card. The papers are all from Nitwits and I used pink satin mirror board around the pink triangle and again the blue glitter card behind the blue one. The crystal swirls were from Create and Craft about 2 years ago. and the ribbon gems and dazzler are from my stash.


A view trying to catch the sparkle. She even has glitter on her shorts, shirt and boots.  She is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers


A view of the inside. The sentiment is from Creative Expressions and the star swirls are cut with a Tonic die.

Steampunk Dragonfly - Ching Chou Kuik - Fussy and Fancy DT


Good morning again. And now for something completely different to my normal cards.  I coloured up this digi 'Steampunk Dragonfly' from Ching Chou Kuik a while ago, and waited to use it for a DT card. I thought this weeks challenge at Fussy and Fancy  was perfect for it


She is fussy cut and added to some Graphic 45 card.  The layers are TH metalic card in  copper.  Yes ................. I actually cut into 2 treasured card packs :)

I added a Cheery Lynn border and some sprockets from SB.  I bought a pack of mixed metallic elements (I think from The Works) and made the little 'flowers'. The sentiment is a MB die with the bottom loops removed. 

The dragonfly, clocks and corners are from 'Live and Love Crafts', and they are our sponsor this week.  Sandy is offering a £10 voucher to the winner.

A close up, I added glossy accents to her goggles and black aurora borealis pearls to the centres of the cogs.


this one shows the copper card better than the straight one


This is the inside of the card where I have added a Penny Black sentiment.

Wait till you see what my other teamies have made for you inspiration this week, totally amazing cards for your inspiration, and you can find them here, and of course full details are available on their blogs.

Recycled box - Winter Wonderland DT.


Good morning and welcome to my first post of the day. The theme for this one at Winter Wonderland was chosen by me,and it's anything but a card. So what do you need that you never get round to making when it gets too close to Christmas, candles? tags? plaques? ornaments? or like me boxes.
Last Christmas my sister recycled a body shop box that she had been given the year before, nothing changed on it.
She always complains that she can never find the right sized box at the right price.  Guess what she is going to get back this year, and will she realise where it came from???


 I did the Blue Peter thing and covered it with sticky backed plastic :) The dies are a mixture of Spellbinders and Sue Wilsons. The 'white' areas are cut from rainbow mirror board and the red and green are just plain mirror board.


A side view, trying to catch more of the shine.



and finally a view of the side with a SB  Holly border

We are being sponsored this week by



who are giving the winner these fabulous dies




who are giving the winner a $12 voucher to spend in store

The other ladies on the Snowflakes team have made some gorgeous projects for your inspiration this week and you can find them here.  Don't forget to follow the theme of anything but a card, and it must be a Christmas project

Lavenders Blue - Conie Fong




Good afternoon. Today I have a just for fun card. I came across the artist, Conie Fong,  about 2 years ago when I saw an image for a really cute Japanese girl called Yumi.  I actually bought the rubber version and had to wait for it coming from Australia. Since then I found her etsy shop and bought a few more images.  This one is called 'Lavenders Blue', bet I have a few of you now singing that nursery rhyme now :).  She can be found here.


Isn't she gorgeous and so easy to colour. I am back to my straight cutting again, and I used rainbow mirror board to create the layers. The sentiment is from Tonic and the large butterfly is a MB. The small butterflies are cut with a MS punch.  The papers are from a LOTV's Nitwit  pad.


I created the sky using a MB cloud border and my E-brush. 


The ribbon, gems and dazzler are from my stash.


The large butterfly's top layer is covered with Tonic Glitter.


A view of the inside.

Spring Flower Hair - A Day for Daisies - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning, I am back with my 'Passion for Promarkers' hat on today and we have Marie as our host.  She has chosen a theme of 'Make it Digital'.  A really easy one for you to use, if like me you hundreds of digital images.
I have used 'Spring Flower Hair' from A 'Day for Daisies', I've had it for a while and it was a dream to colour up. I don't think it matches our weather atm as it's trying to snow.



I don't know why I have over 1,000 dies, as yet again I have been straight cutting again.  I did manage to use one layer of Scalloped squares from SB's. The papers are also digital and from Nitwits. I added MB corners I adore anything by Rennie MacIntosh and these do look as if he designed them. The flowers are all from WOC and the ribbon pearls and dazzler are from my stash.


A close up of the image,I love this combination of colours from Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Triamarkers, and I think the tiny pearls work perfectly with the image.


A side view to show the depth of the flowers.


The inside where I added a couple of MB roses, and their birthday sentiment (with the loops cut off the bottom)  The sentiment is from Penny Black.

We are being sponsored this week by 'Too Cute To Ink' and they are offering the lucky winner a choice of three images from their store

2 cute ink logo

I hope you will check in at Passion for Promarkers to see the amazing cards the DT have made for your inspiration this week.

So come on, forget the awful weather and get you Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers, Aquamarkers out and do some colouring. Can you please state on your post which Letraset products you have used.
