A Photo Challenge

Its the turn of Team A at Addicted to Stamps and More this week and it is a photo inspiration challenge

I decided to create a tag based on the colours and elements in the photo.

I die cut a tag, clouds and zig zag pattern using my Cricut Explore and adhered them to a tag. I used an Avery Elle stamp set for the elephant, balloons and bubbles. The elements are edged with a ink and Sparkle pens.  Finally I made the bow from three different pieces of string and ribbon.

Can't wait to see your creations!!

A Sparkly Fairy

What better - a Sparkly Fairy from a Sparkly Fairy! I am still struggling with this awful flu virus at the moment so bear with me!

I created this card for the February Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With A Die Challenge.

I used some beautiful Tonic Label dies that recently came with an issue of Die Cutting Essentials. I cut these from plain white card. The fairy I die cut from black card using a Spellbinders fairy die. I layered all the elements using foam pads to achieve some dimension.

I hope your day provides some sparkle too!

Don't forget there is a prize at the challenge for the winner!

Jolly Holly

Unfortunately as I write this post I am not feeling too jolly! Everyone in our house has been hit by an awful flu virus doing the rounds. After nearly a week indoors cabin fever is setting in!!

I managed to struggle from my sick bed to finish this card for Happy Little Stampers February Christmas Challenge.

This month it is :

For my card I used a new set of stamps I purchased at Christmas from PolkaDoodles. I stamped the individual holly leaves to create a wreath and coloured them using Promarkers. There is a really useful script stamp in the set which I used in first and second generation mode to create the background. I used Distress Ink in Old Paper to age the card. I thought the tartan ribbon added a nice festive touch.

I look forward to seeing your work!
