Rise & Shine - It's "Nearly" a New Year......

December 31st 2014

This week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog we are having an "Anything Goes ATC Theme" - just for fun to see out 2014 and welcome 2015 - so we would love to see your ATC's of anything you like!!! My image was especially drawn up by Jessica from JessicaLynnOriginal to see in the New Year and start of 2015!

I printed the image twice and cut out "Brentwood's" Top Hat and Flags and mounted them for a 3D effect. Image coloured with Copic Markers of course. Background patterned papers and the "rise & shine" wording are all from Gecko Galz. I added some red hessian for a bit of texture.

This image is available as a digi at the JessicaLynnOriginal Store BUT you must be quick and "nab" him because he is only a limited release and will exit the store come January 31st - here's the link - click here!

2015 Brentwood Owl.....

December 30th 2014

Sharing a card using a new "limited release" digi image available at the JessicaLynnOriginal Store! Be quick and grab this great image to celebrate the new year!!

I printed the image multiple times on my card and added one large image to colour as the focal point. wording is computer generated. A great fun card and image to prepare for the new year!

And I'm entering my card in a few challenges:
C.R.A.F.T Challenge Blog with an "Anything Goes" theme
Double Click Skittles Challenge Blog with a "New" theme - my card has a "New" Year theme and also the image is brand new!!

More Fabric Hangings....

December 27th 2014

I know xmas is over but it's still the festive season so I am sharing the other 2 fabric ornaments I have just finished - yes I'm a bit late but they will still be perfect for next year and I still have them hanging on my little tree ornament until the end of 2014!!

Dog images are from the JessicaLynnOriginal Store the same as my xmas day post - just perfect for dog lovers! Images were stamped/transferred onto calico. I coloured them with chalks and sprayed with sealer to set the chalk and stop it from rubbing off. I sewed around them and "stuffed" them, added some xmas embellishments, some raffia/string "angel wings" and some fishing wire to make a loop to hang them! I had so much fun creating these - I could make dozens of them with Jessica's stamps LOL!!!

I'm entering these in the current A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas Challenge. The Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog has an Anything Goes theme. And a perfect challenge at the We Do Doobadoo Blog - Festive Spirits!
And finally the Chalk N Stock Challenge Blog have the most perfect challenge for these little hangers - their requirements are to use some form of chalks on your creation and as all my ornaments were coloured with "chalks" this is the perfect challenge!

Merry Xmas....

December 25th 2014

A very quick post to say a very merry xmas to everyone - here in Australia it's the end of Xmas Day and I meant to post this earlier in the day but several things held me up and I still also have 2 more of these little dog (different dog images) to finish up - but I will get them done tomorrow and post again. Dog image by JessicaLynnOriginal of course - Jessica does the absolute best sets of dog stamps - all breeds!!!! Hope you like it - will share more details of how I made it when I finish the other 2 off tomorrow! Hope wherever you are you are enjoying the festive season!

A Glittering Xmas....

December 24th 2014
A new challenge at Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog just in time for Xmas!! The theme this week is to use Gold & Silver OR Happy Holidays - I think mine is gold & silver & happy holidays!!

Background wording is from our Sponsor DRS Designs and the cute little princess is from Vera Lane Studio.

Wishing everyone a wonderful xmas!

Ice Maiden.....

December 21st 2014

Having some fun this week after seeing this post at the Paper Artsy Blog: Wintery Journalling. I had just purchased a new image from Morgans Fae World Etsy Store to play in the current Fitztown "Winter" Themed Challenge and the "tutorial" by Alison Bomber at paper Artsy was just the inspiration I needed for my page!

I just love the technique for making this page and I especially love the texture and colour tones. Image coloured with Copic Markers. I cut the snowflakes on my Silhouette and sponged some pearl paint on them and I also sponged pearl paint on the page too along with the coloured acrylic paint. I added a snowflake charm and a sentiment sticker to finish off plus the sparkle on her wings!

You really should check out the article at the Paper Artsy Blog - it's one page style I will be using again - would look great in all sorts of colours!

So I am entering this at the Paper Artsy December Challenge Link because their post really inspired this page and also at the Fitztown Blog because I wanted a winter theme all along!

Stampotique Xmas ATC Cards...

December 8th 2014

Some little ATC"cards" made for the Stampotique ATC Trade in November. These little cards are ATC size but open like a card. I made little folders to send them in because they had to go overseas and I had some damaged so now I make sure the actual ATC is well protected!

Snowmen Xmas Cards

December 7th 2014
Showcasing new products this month at Gecko Galz - images are from the Snowman Way Stamp Set and the papers are from the new Graphical Paper Pack.

 I love the look of these cards - I could have made even more with all the snowman images that come in the digi stamp set! These are a few of my final creations as a DT Member at Gecko Galz - after 2 and a half years I've decided to take a break from the team.

And I'm also adding these to the 12 Days of Christmas Link Up Party at the Unruly Paperarts Site!

Angels Sing at Xmas.....

December 6th 2014

I'm joining in for the first time at the Lost Coast Designs Challenge - theme of "Merry Christmas" - perfect for this time of the year - just loving all the xmas things on everyone's blogs!

I've used an image called "Stella" - LOL you would not believe how many years I have had this stamp!!!! And this is the first time in years that I have used it - but it's just perfect for my journal page! And I've used red & blue colour combo for something a bit different for xmas - half traditional and half non traditional LOL!

Background has been striped with acrylic paints and the "credit card" technique - I left the lighter blue strip in the middle just for the wording. I added some white highlights to the page. Image printed with red ink & fussy cut. And a few silver sparkles added to each of the "angels".

And I'm also linking this up to the Unruly Paperarts 12 Days of Xmas Link up Party!
