Mermaid one of three new images from Squiggle Stamps

This gorgeous card has been made using a Squigglestamps Image one of their newest. The Mermaid is great fun to colour and you can let your imagination go wild. I used some lovely new ribbon that I bought whilst on holiday in Westward Ho! There was a shop with walls of it in Barnstaple, wonderful, could have spent hours in there, but had kiddies and hubby with me. So it probably saved me a fortune!
I coloured her in with my Promarkers and then made my own little sketch up as I went along. The butterfly is from a Sizzix die and the flowers are from a set I bought in the Chichester market for £1. I used DCWV glitter card and a fairy brad. The mermaid is sitting on a nestabilities eyelets die cut and I have generously popped bling, brads and glitter all over the flowers and the butterfly.
Thanks for popping over

Squiggles Christmas Creations

Well this project has been made with a Squiggle Stamps christmas image which are currently on sale until 5th August, so if this one takes your fancy then now is the time to grab it!
The challenge over at Squiggle Stamps Blog can be found Here and is Christmas Creations, so we would love to see your christmas cards, tags, atc's, scrapbook pages etc that you have created with a Squiggle Stamp or Digi Image.
Squiggle Stamps are now running a fortnightly challenge and with a couple of freebies in store and a 20% discount on digis this would be a great time to pop over and have a wee looky.
Now I know some of my followers have some Squiggles Rubber Stamps, cos they won them in my candy draw, so it would be lovely to see what you can do with them.
Now this box I have made using a basic papermania card and then a piece of kanban tartan on the top. I have added two pieces of ricrac (really old that in all honesty I had forgotten was in my stash) and have used my sizzix to cut out the oval from the paper that I had printed the digi. The edges have been colorbox chalked and I have used Promarkers, and some gold and silver pens and a little glitter to colour the christmas tree and birdy.
Hugs to you all and these are the challenges that I am entering my project into.

Last post before my holidays

I have made this card using one of my very first stamps from over a year ago.
I have used kanban card and some plain black paper for matting. The flowers were part of a lovely candy that I won at the beginning of the year some are prima and some are wild orchid. The image is obviously by ching chou kuik from Sweet Pea Stamps and the sentiment is a LOTV one. I have used an x-cut border punch on some lilac embossed light card and have used black and dark red chalks for edging.
I have coloured with my promarkers and highlighted with my gold pen.
I hope you all have great fun over the holidays, I am off on mine now so although I might get the odd chance to look online whilst I am away, I will not be doing any posting. Will catch up with you all soon, take care and have fun.
I am entering this card into the above challenges
Thanks for looking

SquiggleStamps Christmas Card

This gorgeous image is from Squigglestamps and is from the lilliput range. I think she is called 'gifts galore'. These quirky stamps offer a range of uses, this one especially as it is great for birthdays, celebrations, and of course christmas, perhaps you can come up with some others.
I have made this card to enter into the above challenge at Sparkles Christmas Card Challenge Blog, the diecut that i used is the tag (sizzix) that the main image is layered onto.
The ribbons are from my stash as is the bazzil card and christmas green paper.
The stickers for the sentiments are from a friend and the flower is a Wild Orchid one, I have coloured with my promarkers and have highlighted the skirt and head band with my white pen.
The border punch that I used on the front panel is a small x-cut one.
So finally thanks for popping over, I think that that is probably it for today. I have not had much time this week to actually publish anything so am afraid you have ended up with a huge pile of posts today. The kids are lining up to use the computer hee hee, makes a nice change anyway.
Hugs and have a wicked fun weekend.

Summer Birthdays with Sweet Pea

This cute card has been made for a summer birthday. I have used a Sweet pea stamp and have coloured with my promarkers.
I have used a wild orchid crafts flower and have used glitter on the wings of the butterflies and around the flower petals. I made the sketch up myself and used some Kanban tartan and some papermania papers as well.
The tag is from a freebie from the magazine that I get regularly now 'cardmaking and papercrafts', I attached with a flower brad and added a sentiment peel off to a small hand made 'tag'.
hope you like it, enjoyed making this card immensely and I am entering it into the challenges above.
