Aurora Wings Challenge #46


It's time for another challenge over at Aurora Wings and this time it's ...

A  SKETCH

 Today I used the gorgeous Cherry Sprite. I flipped her so she would face the other way - this suited the sketch a lot better, although I could have flipped the sketch too. I did add rather a large satin bow in place of the 3 embellishments on the left - but it's all about interpretation and I could argue the bow loops and know qualify - you'd let me get away with that wouldn't you ;)

Photo Inspiration in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using the inspiration picture on the left. The way I tend to craft is by starting with an idea and coming up with something completely different at the end - LOL. My card was going to be all about the rolled roses in a similar palette to the picture - then I coloured up Bumble Bee Marci and my whole palette changed - but it does follow the whole garden theme right???

Bloobel Stamps Progressive Challenge - March


It's time for the next installment of Bloobel Stamps progressive challenge. This month we had a choice of six different images to use with an Easter Parade feel. I chose to squeeze in all 6 of them but my card did end up a slightly larger standard card. You'll find the rabbit taking a ride along on Judy's hat. You can find all of these images in the Bloobel shop. I also added some decorations to a few of the hats using last month's sheet of accessory images that came with the image Bake Me a Cake.

This was so much fun to put together and it's always fabulous to see everyone else's take using the same images.

One for the Girls in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating a card for the girls. In The UK and Ireland Mother's Day is coming up but the theme can easily be adapted for any of the girls in your life. I love the Molli images for older teens and young women, and this one is very true to life with her phone attached to her hand LOL.

Simply Betty Stamps Progressive Challenge - March


It's time for the next instalment of the Simply Betty Stamps' 2017 Progressive Challenge. This month we were given the gorgeous Beehive Queen to use

The challenge is to use this recipe on our projects....

Color Combo - Black, Yellow, and White
At least one designer paper
At least one Ribbon
Embossing: Either wet with embossing powders or dry with an embossing folder

I separated the bees from the Queen so I could make them a little larger in comparison and added them to a step card. I used my honeycomb embossing folder in the central panel.

Copics Used - E99, E97, E18, E15, E13, E11, E04, E00, E000, R24, R20, R11, 100, C10, C6, C4, C2, C00, Y38, Y19, Y15, Y00, YR27, YR24, G28, G24,

Pansy Sprite - a New Release from Aurora Wings


Today I have a little CAS card using the newest Sprite in the Aurora Wings collection - this is the Pansy Sprite and she's available FREE for a limited time HERE. Pansies come in so many fabulous colours that it was quite hard to pick - so maybe I'll just have to colour her up again ;) There is also some gorgeous Pansy arrangements in the Aurora Wings store HERE that would work fabulously with this cutie, they can be purchased together or separately.

Copics Used - E11, E00, E000, R20, R11, R05, R02, V99, BV08, Y19, Y06, YR24, G28, G24, YG17

Anything Goes in La-La Land


Today in La-La Land our challenge is Anything Goes. I am using our new Fireman Luka. This new version has him without his pet dog by his side. We had several bushfires burning here in Australia when I was putting my card together so I used that as inspiration for my card and to pay tribute to our firies who work on the fire front.
