Purple box

 Hi guys,

My best friend wanted a box to keep his pencil ends in - a pencil graveyard lol. So he provided the box and I decorated it. He loves purple, so obviously I kept to this colour scheme.




I did a base coat with a purple paint and then sprayed this with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray in , to create a splatter effect. I left this to dry for 48 hours and then stamped the tree images using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed these using a black embossing powder from heat it up.

I would like to enter this box into the following challenges:
TIOT - Emboss it
sweetstampin' - favourite colour combination - I really like the combination of black and purple
craftycalendar - anything goes

Thanks for looking,

Pretty Kitty

 Hi guys,

I have made a CAS kitty card using purples and silver.

The foiled decoupage I believe is Anita's, however it has been in my stash a while so I may be wrong. I simply layered the pieces together, used one of the corner edges and added a peel-off sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
SimonSaysWed - Little Critters
AYLI - Metallic or glitter card (I like using metallic card for matting)
CASology #407 Happy
SUYP #81 Furrything Goes
DragonflyDreams - Happy Birthday

Autumn is coming

 Hey guys,

So you can feel it in the air, and in the nights drawing in - Autumn is just around the corner for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore, our optional twist over at Creative Moments for this month is Autumn Colours.


Our sponsor is Morgans Artworld and I have used an image I had from them a while back and hidden in my stash.

Morgan's Artworld

I took the image and layered it onto a scenic paper, cut to size. I also cut the sentiment from this paper pack. Finally I added an autumnal butterfly.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Autumn (browns and golds)

 Hi all,

We have an autumnal optional theme for you this challenge over at I Love Promarkers.


I coloured the image with Morning Mist, Soft Peach, Soft Green, Bright Orange, Slate, Tawny Owl, Warm Grey 4, Lemon, Summer Sun, Spice, Cinnamon and Burnt Sienna Promarkers.

I layered the image onto a digital patterned paper before printing. I used double sided peel-offs and aurora flakes from cosmic shimmer to create the swirls in autumnal colours, and then layered the image panel over these.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

PFP 658 Favourite embellishement - I love using the double sided stickers to add a bit of bling to a card

Crochet necklace

 Hi guys,

I decided to do some beading again, after a little while. I just need to actually figure out what to do with it all once it is made!!


This has been crocheted, so each bead is crocheted onto the string. It is a double length necklace so can be worn in a variety of ways for several design ideas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Leaves in pink

 Hi all,

We have a new challenge started today over at MAWTT, chosen by Jenny the theme is Trees and/or Leaves.

I have gone for a pink theme for my card:


I stamped the leaves using a pretty colour pink ink pad and then heat embossed with a translucent red embossing powder. To stamp the leaves I masked the two sides of the card to ensure they made a panel in the middle. I then used the same ink and embossing powder to stamp the sentiment onto the label topper. I added the label topper and washi tape topper to the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
TIOT - keep it simple
Intaas #141 birthdays
SimonsaysMonday - Make your own background
ThePaperPlayers #606 Sketch
