Crimbo Crackers Challenge 70 - Buttons

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:


And here is a little something I created sort of by accident!  The card is from my stash and I've had it for ages - I cut it down to create the 13.5cm square card.  I've got quite a few buttons (not sure how that happened!) and thought they would look good as baubles for a quick and easy Christmas card.

I printed one of the sentiments from a Polkadoodles Christmas cd directly onto the card stock, added the buttons (used glossy accents) and then added the bows and strings along with the half pearls.  And that's it!

It's nice to do something a bit different every once in a while, and the best thing is, I made a few of these in less time than it takes to make one that I've coloured and really thought about!

Good luck with the challenge - it last 2 weeks and although there isn't a sponsor, I'll be providing a little prize!

Age Is Just A Number....

.... In your case, a really high one.  Say what you see!  To pinch a catchphrase!  Sentiment from the Birthday Sentiment Sheet 01 from Dr Digi - just great for when you need something quick.  And insulting.

I've used a We R Memory Keepers tool to make the stitching holes and then with a black fineliner pen, joined up the dots - faux stitching at its finest!  Papers I found in my stash (needed to use them up) and circles cut with dies.  Little bronze dinosaur charm from my ever growing stash of charms (can't knock ebay and China!)

Birthday Blast!

Here's hoping your Birthday is a blast! Retro Rocket can fly you to the moon for just £2. And if its the actual moon you want, then that is just a mere £1. But don't forget the multi-buy deals - all designed to be interglatically lots of fun and all from Dr Digi!

Card blank is a rather old Papermania pack that I found in my stash and the two images have been coloured with Promarkers. Sentiment handwritten.

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 69 - Clean and Simple

It's time for a new challenge at Crimbo Crackers and the theme for the fortnight is Clean and Simple.

I've printed my From The Heart Stamps image directly onto my cardstock and used Promarkers to colour. The sentiment also comes with the digi image.

I've glittered around the outside edge of the card and added blue organza ribbon with bakers twine, tied in a bow along with a silver snowflake charm. Nice and easy!

Good luck with the challenge - hope you can join me!

A nice n easy one this week - a simple Happy Birthday. And what more could you want than some candles for the cake you treated yourself to! Sentiment from the very fab Dr Digi Birthday Sentiments Sheet 1.

The stripy paper is from the equally lovely Funky Hand - Keep In Touch download which has just been released and its only £2.49!

Special Brew

There are lots of spooky goings on over at Dr Digi - and here is one that I left brewing earlier! Special Brew and for good measure Crossbones. I don't think these need to carry a health warning as they look pretty grim to begin with!

Hope you are ready for things that go BUMP in the night! I've added the images after colouring them with Promarkers to a sheet of acetate with a black card base behind. I've wrapped a wide peice of ribbon around the join at the top and then added some black funky fibres as well.

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 68 - Round

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme this fortnight is Round. Don't forget that your entry must be Christmas or Festive related.

I've used a fab circle sentiment from Jellypark (which I don't think is available any more - sorry!) and enlarged it to make it the actual card. I've added the scalloped edge by punching hearts and gluing them underneath.

A bit of highlighting with Promarkers, inking and glitter glue, some half pearls and the card is complete!

Good luck with the challenge!

Monster Fun

Halloween is approaching and what better way to celebrate than with the good Dr Digi Halloween Sentiments which have eerily turned into cupcake toppers! Now I would show you how they are supposed to look however this house has no cupcakes and I didn't think they would look right stabbed through some Jaffa Cakes.......

Buy the Sentiment Sheet along with Special Brew and Witchy Wilma and save a £1 - enough to buy some treats!

All coloured with Promarkers and I found some titchy wobbly eyes in my stash along with the dripping goo.

What Solves Everything?

A cuppa, that's what!

And even better when the cuppa digi from Dr Digi is only 50p! You can't buy a real cuppa tea for that price! Scrumpled sentiment panel is from a bag of sugar. Recycling at it's sweetest.

Mix of faux and real stitching - using a We R Memory Keeper roller thing (combination of a 99p reduced to clear head from Hobbycraft and a bargain on Amazon for the holder - £6 and free shipping) for the pattern. Actual stitching using a black fineliner pen. Genuine tea stains from a previous cuppa, digi coloured with Promarkers, embroidery thread from my stash and charm from ebay. Another bargain - £2 for 100 of the little things!
