The Stamping Chef November Challenge

TSC Monthly Recipe Challenge 

Hello Peeps,
Just wanted to show you today a little card I made for The Stamping Chef monthly challenge
Tamara and the Stamping chef are celebrating there 1st birthday so
                                               HAPPY BIRTHDAY TSC!! 
So starting this month Tamara has made The face book recipe group to a monthly challenge . To be apart of this challenge all you need to do is become a member of the face book page here and you can purchase the image from The Stamping chef here
By being a member, and following the guidelines of the challenge found on the face book page.You will be able to request the image for free like I did. This is what I created from the free image.
It's such a fun and detailed image which just makes me giggle.
 I coloured the image with my copics and then fussy cut around the image, because the image was so detailed I didn't want to take anything away from it, so the idea was to keep the background simple.
Of course simple is not my middle name and the idea of a starburst, which is all the rage at the moment came to mind.
 I am sure simple could still have been obtained, but of course while searching through my paper stash I came across the glitter paper and in true bower bird form I had to use the sparkle.
So even though it's not as simple as I first intended I am still very happy with the finished product.
The image was then popped on foam dots and added to the centre of the starburst and Hey presto finished card!
 This was a great image to play around with and I am so happy I took the time to play along. I am sure this digi will be dragged out a few more times yet
Thanks for looking!

Father's Day Cards for the Men in my Life!

Good Morning Crafty Friends
As all my Australian Blogger's will Know that yesterday was Father's Day and I had to make up a few quick cards for the father's in my life
here is what I came up with
For my Father
My father has a funny sense of humour and I know he will get a kick out of this fun image I am also a florist in my real job so this image is just so appropriate for my father.
The next card was made for my lovely gentle fathering Law who also shares a great sense of humour but is some what a bit of a traditional man so this is what I come up with for him
And finally I made a card for my sweet husband another funny cheeky card which really just reflects
his fun loving ways
I really enjoy making cards for special people in my life. I enjoy choosing the image which reflects the receiver and the occasion that I am giving the card for. I must say all the cards were well received by all the father's
Happy Father's Day to all the special Dad's out there!

Kenny K's You Twilight my Life

KENNY K's You Twilight my life

Hi Crafty Friends,
Just wanted to share with you a Twilight themed project I made for the Kenny K's Facebook Contest
Kenny K's are running a contest on there face book page and giving a freebie digital Edward Stamp  that you can find here
When I saw the Edward image I just Knew I had to give it a go TEAM EDWARD!
this is what I came up with
I used a wooden 3D frame which was painted black and then dried brush with silver paint to add a bit more sparkle
the back of the frame was covered in a DCWV the Immortal Love stack
this was my guilty paper stack that I brought a couple of years ago just because it was a twilight theme
I then coloured my Edward with copic marker's and fussy cut around him.
the extra embellishments are from my stash
A closer look of my lovely Edward I even sparkled him with my Spica pens
I really enjoyed making this project It has been a while since I read these books I might have to go dust them off and read them again.
My beautiful daughter was eying my little project off this morning so I think I will surprise her tomorrow and hang it in her room.
It's all about sharing the Love for Team Edward LOL
Thanks for looking

Dr Digi Just Inspiraltional Challenge

Hello Crafty friends ,

Here's another post for the Just Inspirational challenge
so this week Its team A's go and we are using some great images from Dr Digi

here's the picture for our inspiration
 I took my inspiration from the colours that are in this picture.
 I always find using lots of different colours at once a little bit of a challenge and this one was no exception.
I also must confess I have a guilty pleasure of poke-dots. So into my stash to find some printed paper which was not hard to find
I used a great image from Dr Digi called Slam dunk Duncan 
Here's what I came up with
Slam Dunk Duncan was coloured with copics
The colours use were:
Skin- E57, E49,E59,R20
Hair-C2,C4,C6,C7,and C9
Basket Ball- YR15, YR16, YR18
Uniform Singlet- B01, B02,B04 Numbers Y13,Y15,Y17
Uniform Shorts- B12, B16, B24, B29
Socks- B01 B02
Shoes- B01,B02,B04
Head Band- BV02, BV11 and BV13
The background papers used on the card were from my own stash
I also used a brick stencil and used distress inks
Dried Marigold, Tea dye, Barn Door and spiced marmalade
on whisper white Stampin' Up card stock
I tore the edges of the brick work and distressed the edges with Barn door distress ink.
The sentiment is actually a Kaisercraft clear stamp from the new release Confidence.
Now its your go!
 Take your Inspiration from the JIC photo and create a card and link up your design to the JIC Team A Challenge
Dr Digi is giving the lucky winner a free digi of your choice for the winning entry
so get in there and have a go
I am looking forward to checking out your entries
