I made this pair of mini cards today, using this gorgeous pink polka dot paper from Katherine Teague's fabulous 'Birds of a Feather' digikit available at 2Peas (click HERE to see the full kit). I re-coloured the cute birdy in Photoshop to coordinate with my preferred colour scheme. I love pink and cream.
Digi elements - Katherine Teague; Stamps, Notecards and gems - Hero Arts (click HERE for details); ribbon - Creative Impressions. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend... just a reminder that it's just a few more days until my challengecloses. I can't believe how many entries I've had. And all GORGEOUS.
I've been working with THIS cute digikit tonight - it's called 'Holiday Twist Borders' by Holly Brooke Jones. I knew as soon as I saw this mistletoe border that I wanted to use a LOT of bling with it. And so I did :) I also added a cute bird from the Birds of a Feather kit, featured HERE at 2Peas. I just coloured it in with a red Copic marker and used a Sharpie to add detail.
And this pretty snowflake design is gorgeous. Here I just pasted it multiple times in Word to create a background paper.
It's time for a new Caardvarks challenge. And it's all about colouring in... my favourite hobby!
Supplies: Digi Images (script, butterfly), Stamp, Gems and Notecard- Hero Arts;Digital lined Paper - Michelle Underwood; Nesties - Labels 8. Here, I coloured in a gorgeous digital butterfly image by Hero Arts from the Flutterbies kit. Click HERE for the details about the challenge and to see the pretty rubber stamp prize :) And... another announcement. I am now on theTwo Peas Digital Creative Team. Yay. Check out the announcement here. And be prepared for loads of hybrid cards! And finally, don't forget my challenge too... click here to check it out, or just scroll down...
I am so excited to see entries formy first challenge ALREADY. I can't believe how fast you girls work :) So I thought I'd better have a go myself. I used the new Hero Arts Digikit: Old Letter Writing. This has been one of my favourite stamps for AGES, and I am thrilled they have released a digi version. Now I can recolour and print directly onto the notecards without having to worry about straight lines... brilliant for me... I can NEVER stamp straight! :)
Hope you like the colours and get a chance to have a go - click HERE for details.Thank you all xxx
Think I might have to try an 'Under the Weather' card next - the kit has clouds, raindrops and an umbrella too. :)

So I looked back at my comments and noticed one person had commented on pretty much EVERY one of my posts. So Alice Wertz, email me for a little gift! You are so kind!!! Happy Wednesday! The week's half gone already!!!
I was totally thrilled to see that a card I submitted to a CARDS magazine blog challengewas featured in the gallery... click here to see it. The challenge was to create an embellishment out of vintage book paper. I made the leaves out of an old book, and used distress ink to colour them. The flower is made using paper from THIS Michelle Underwood kit. Love that music paper.
Supplies: Stamps (owl, sentiment) and Notecard - Hero Arts; PP - Papertrey Ink and October Afternoon; sewing machine; goggle eyes and buttons (from stash)
For a change, I stamped the owl on the back of the patterned paper, and distressed the edges before piecing him together. I put buttons under the goggle eyes for extra dimension. I added brown stitching and a brown stamped sentiment; I even found brown goggle eyes. :)
Happy Sunday to everyone. P.S. If MOMIJI sees this... scroll down... you won my giveaway!

Today is Digital Scrapbooking Day over at Two Peas! I am not a scrapbooker, but I do use a LOT of digital scrapbooking kits and I saw mention of free kits... I'm THERE.
So I thought I'd share a couple of hybrid digital cards today, inspired by THIS gorgeous project of Jennifer McGuire's.
This one is made with Michelle Underwood's gorgeous butterfly kit: HERE. Love the huge range of butterflies. I just lined these up on some digital paper (here) and printed a few extra. I then cut these and layered them on top to create a 3D effect.
Supplies: Images and Paper - Michelle Underwood; stamp and notecard - Hero Arts; Sewing machine and orange thread; pop dots.
And this one uses the gorgeous butterfly from the Hero Arts Flutterby digikit. This is also layered onto some digital paper by Michelle Underwood (here). The sentiment is computer generated.
Supplies: Image - Hero Arts; Paper - Michelle Underwood; sewing machine; pop dots.
Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day ;) Maybe more later.......
This week on the Hero Arts Blog, Leslie is making Christmas cards with unusual colours. When she asked me if I'd like to contribute a card, I was thrilled. Then I saw the colour palette... WOW. A real challenge for me.
But I LOVED it. Such yummy yummy colours.
And I am so happy I was asked!!!
Supplies: Images, Stamps, Gems, Notecard - Hero Arts (snowflakes, snowman, sentiment); PP - My Mind's Eye; Ribbon - Creative Impressions. The gorgeous snowflakes are from THIS digikit - Tiny Snowflakes, I love the way you can re-colour and resize them to fit any project and colour scheme. So the challenge is on to create a holiday card with an unsual colour scheme- click HERE to see the details. I hope you get a chance to play along. And I FINALLY drew the winner of my giveaway. Random.Org picked:
I love to make circle cards, so the new Caardvarks challenge is right up my street - and I was thrilled to receive this gorgeous set of baby stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps, the sponsor of this challenge.
I got carried away, and made a few cards! So much fun. And the stamps are such high quality too - a perfect impression every time.
So here is today's card, I'll share more baby themed circle creations tomorrow. :)
Supplies: Stamp - Clear and Simple Stamps; PP and sticker - K&Co; Nesties - Scallops and Circles; coathanger (unknown); Sewing machine and silver thread.
Since I embarked on my digital journey, I have been an admirer / stalker ofMichelle Underwood. She designs the most beautiful digital papers and kits. So when I saw that she wanted a new Design Team, I was quick to apply. And I am thrilled to say I was selected. Woo hoo.
Here, I layered my Labels 1 die cut onto black paper, and hand cut a thin border to help the blue paper stand out more. Tips: Resize your digital PP in Word so you do not waste printer ink. Add stitching to the patterned paper before adhering to your cardbase. This makes the inside of your card neater.
Thanks Michelle - I am truly honoured to be a part of your team :)
