APC Week 16!

January 25th 2015


I've joined Claudine's Altered Playing Card Challenge a little late so as well as doing each new week I'm also working backwards to try and "catch up" LOL!! You can see everyone's creations at the FB Group!

I've used gorgeous dog stamps from JessicaLynnOriginal - of course!! This first card uses one of the images from the "Pit Bull" stamp set which is fairly new in store - it's a great set - I've used several of the stamps recently! Sentiment is a separate stamp also from the JessicaLynnOriginal store.


This second card uses a mini order Collie stamp which you can also find in the dog section at JLO. The letter stamps were some I've had for years - they are very handy for wording and sentiments.

 
I loved the background technique for these - the tissue paper is from the Tim Holtz range. So remember to check out Claudine's Blog for all the details of the APC Challenge!

So who doesn't remember the song of my blog post title????? Love it - great fun and it inspired my journal page!


I just couldn't resist when Jessica at JessicaLynnOriginal gave the DT this image to play with!!! Absolutely perfect for the song - although I don't think the song was about an "owl" dressed on a polka do bikini but artistic licence used here LOL!!


Background was Dylusions spray ink. I used a polka dot stencil cut on my Silhouette, plus some paint dragged with a credit card, few highlights of black paint and pen and stamped wording and we have a fun journal page!

 
Make sure you check out the JessicaLynnOriginal Store for all the great new release and pre-release stamp sets - some amazing ones coming out.......

Jasmine Becket-Griffith Set of Cards

January 23rd 2015


A set of 3 cards using Jasmine Becket-Griffith stamps available at the JessicaLynnOriginal Store. I love Jasmine's art and Jessica does an amazing job to draw them as stamps!

I've tried to stick with a black & kraft colour theme and match the Silhouette cut backgrounds to the theme of each stamp, along with the patterned papers & embellishments! I'm really happy with how they turned out.



It's all Pink, Black & White.....

January 22nd 2015
You just have to love this colour challenge and great sponsor this week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog!
 

This week as you can see the colour theme is pink, black & white - I just love this colour combo! And our sponsor - a new one for 2015 - is Ppinky's Doll Art - and you can find their gorgeous images at Etsy! If you have a Ppinky image why not use that to play along otherwise grab any image and get colouring!

Some Odd Girl 5th Birthday....

January 21st 2015


I'm joining the 5th B'day at the Some Odd Girl Blog and linking my card up! I've created this b'day card and followed the specifications to have "5" of something on my card - can you see what 5 things I have?? LOL!!


I have put "5" pearls on my card. I also couldn't resist adding some sparkle. Background flower overlay and happy birthday wording cut on my Silhouette. I just love this gorgeous SOG digi image from the store!


Happy Birthday to Some Odd Girl! SOG digis were some of the very first I bought when I "discovered" digis!

The Old Gumbie Cat.... T.S. Eliot

January 20th 2015


Still time to play along at the Fitztown Challenge Blog - easy theme "Anything Goes" with added "twist" if you want to add patterned paper - my little kitty is standing on a strip of patterned paper!! I'm Guest Designer there this month and next month so would love to see your creations and a chance to win some images!!

 
 
I'm a lover of TS Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" so my page has been named for one of the poems and I handwrote some of the poem on my page!

Journal 52 Week 2: Just Be

January 18th 2015


So far I am keeping up relatively well at Journal 52 - LOL we are only at Week 3 and I actually have the first 2 weeks done!


Theme for Week 2 "Just Be" - couldn't resist using this great "Old Maid Bee" digi from Sandra Caldwell - love Sandra's images - am planning to use another of her digis for my Week 3 Journal 52 page as well!


I Gessoed the background and added some texture paste through a stencil then sprayed Dylusions Inks, added some scrap paper & tissue paper, muslin, my page was ready to add my image which I mounted with mounting tape and then the bee and wording were cut on my Silhouette. Very happy with the result.

On to week 3 now before I get too far behind ha ha!!!!
