Christmas Caroler

cccarols
although it wasn’t shown on the crafter’s companion challenge blog and i wasn’t given any explanation, this is my guest designer creation for december to use ribbon, twine or string. i coloured this mouse from the makey bakey ‘christmas carols’ stamp set with distress inks, added flock to his hat and coat trim and decoupaged the song book and his paws. i added snow and used stickles for the snow on the ground; the sentiment is a sticker and i added the memory box die cut numbers and a Dee’s Distinctively Dies tree.

i’d like to submit this to these challenges:
winter wonderland – numbers
cut it up – christmas and include a die cut
christmas at sweet stampin’ – snow
a little bit crafty – christmas cheer
one crazy stmper – winter/holiday
cute card thursday – celebrations
jingle belles – linkfest

thanks for popping by.

Welcome Baby

crafter's.companion
there were a few hiccups with the october crafter’s companion challenge theme of baby, so the october challenge has been re-posted and now i can post my guest designer card. i coloured the mice from the ‘celebration parade‘ set with distress inks, made all the paper buttons, added a memory box die cut banner and some stickers to spell baby; the papers are all from echo park.

so, now you can play along with the october baby challenge AND the november christmas/winter theme challenge for some fabulous prizes. thanks for popping by.

Waiting For Christmas

crafter'scompanionGDTcard.nov.2013
i won a guest designer spot for the crafter’s companion challenge blog for october to december, but there were a few hiccups with the blog; this is my november card for the christmas/winter theme. i watercoloured this makey bakey mouse with distress inks and twinkling H2Os, added red glass beads to the holly, flower soft on the coat and stickles around the edge of the image rectangle. the red star was die cut from glitter paper and the december 25 star sentiment was stamped from the makey bakey mouse festive fun & frolics set and cut out by hand. the papers are doodlebug’s home for the holidays. thanks for popping by.

Blue Hydrangea

i was commissioned to make a card for someone who saw my pink calla lilies card and wanted something similar but in different colours. the hydrangea is in the same stamp-it australia set as the calla lilies and available at crafter’s companion; they stamp beautifully and i love the detailed thin lines. i watercoloured the image with twinkling H2Os, added stickles to the centres and die cut the embellishments out of gold mirri.

i’d like to submit this card to these challenges:
city crafter – #181 give thanks
cards galore – flowers
stampin’ for the weekend – anything goes
one crazy stamper – thankful/autumn

Pink Calla Lilies

COPYRIGHT LINDA @ SNAIL'S SPACE AND DESCRIBED HERE SOLELY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES; card with green background, debossed on the bottom portion with a focal point of pink calla lilies in a gold vase
i created this card for the september crafter’s companion challenge theme of embossing. i watercoloured the calla lilies from the Stamp-It-Australia Floral Fancies stamp set (available in the US) with twinkling H2Os; i used the same twinks to create some matching mats with watercolour paper. i embossed a portion of the green paper, sanded the debossed side and added the memory box die cut ribbon slide. i decided not to put a sentiment on the front so i can use it for any occasion. thanks for popping by.
