Aurora Wings Challenge #59

It's time for another challenge over at Aurora Wings and this time it's ...
Image may contain: 1 person, drawing
Today I'm using the gorgeous image Dark Princess I'm not sure I've achieved too much darkness - this gorgeous image has such a beautiful face but evil CAN be beautiful too - otherwise many of our favourite fairy tales wouldn't work with their stunning evil female characters.

 Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there. 

You can find this image and more in the Aurora Wings Etsy Store or the Online Store.

Fa La La with Bloobel Stamps


Just for fun I coloured up this cutie and created a simple Christmas card. The image is called Yay for Christmas and is from Bloobel Stamps. The striped background pattern in the cut out was created using a selection of washi and glitter tapes, they added just the right quirky finish.

Christmas is Coming aROUND again!!!!



I printed off this AMAZING Santa Mandalooney from Bloobel Stamps before Christmas LAST YEAR and I was determined to have it coloured up and on a card by this Christmas - mission accomplished :)

It was interesting to have to colour up the same image 5 times, I was really aware of making sure they all looked alike. It was so much fun to do. And lastly I must apologise for my pun in this post's title - I couldn't help myself LOL

Thanx Coach


As Team Manager for my son's soccer team I was honoured to make this card for our fabulous coach. I found this awesome digi called Dunterton Accademicals FC from Dr.Digi House of Stamps. I coloured him up in our team colours and created the background paper using a soccer ball with our club logo on - we actually had this ball made up so the team could sign it as a Thank You gift. I also overlaid "our" ball over the top of the older style soccer ball that came with the digi. This fabulous old fella and his friend play lots of sports and are great for the "older" sportsmen in your life.

Aurora Wings Challenge #57


After a month off it's time for another challenge from Aurora Wings and this time it's......

Image may contain: 1 person

I used the gorgeous Poppy Sprite and zoomed in on her face, cropping her into a frame. I also went with blue poppy tones and created a speckled background within the square. I had originally die cut the "happy" out of the coloured image to pop up over the top, but I felt it got a little lost so kept it white and added some stardust stickles over the top for some fun sparkle.

Simply Betty Stamps Progressive Challenge - September


 It's time for the next installment of the Simply Betty Stamps' 2017 Progressive Challenge. This month we were given the gorgeous Cast a Spell Betty to use. 

This month's challenge was...
1. Must use the image and sentiment provided
2. Include 2 ribbons 
3. Use polka dot designer paper

I realised late into designing my card that I hadn't actually used any polka dotted paper so I used my GoPress and Foil and a Swiss Dots embossing folder to create some silver foil polka dots on one of the panels in my design. I've wrapped a thin purple ribbon over the top of a wider lime green ribbon to fulfil the ribbon requirement.

African Beauty from Simply Betty Stamps


Today I'm introducing you to one of the four African beauties that are now available in the Simply B Stamps Etsy Store. this one is Wanda Wraps.
