CES Challenges #70 ~ Check It Out!...

Hi all! Time for a brand new challenge over at CES Challenges. 
This week our theme is;

'Check It Out!'

So we'd like to see any sort of gingham, tartan, checks on your projects.

Look at this adorable westie! Coming soon to DigiStamp Boutique, but I couldn't wait to have a play, so here's a sneaky peek for you. Once again I printed my digi over the top of a patterned paper in 'Page Plus' (please see my previous post for details). Well actually I printed over two patterned papers today. I opened one paper on top of another paper in Page Plus, and overlapped them. Then popped my 'png' file digi over the top, printed and coloured with my Flexmarkers. The papers I used are by Pink Petticoat. 

Card blank,
Card Candi,
Adhesive Gems.

I also used;
Go Kreate dies (to make a frame),
Sizzix embossing folder (to emboss frame),
Gingham bow,

Hope you'll join us this week, with a Crafty Emma voucher prize up for grabs...what are you waiting for?!
Don't forget to check out the other fab DT  makes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Gem Of A Challenge #38...

Hi all! Very quick one from me this evening as have had a very busy weekend (my daughter's 8th Birthday), and still need to get all the school stuff ready for the morn. So without further ado, here's my (late!!) DT card for A GEM OF A CHALLENGE, where this time we have a fab sketch by the lovely Lisa....

I've used one of the adorable new 'Faye' digi stamps, and some fab downloadable papers all from PINK GEM DESIGNS.

One again I used the fab technique Janet told me about, where you open up a digi patterned paper in 'Page Plus', then overlay your 'png' file digi image. When you print out, the image will still be blank for you to colour etc, but the background is patterned.

I also used Marianne ribbon dies, Spellbinders frameabilities, (wide selection of these dies available at Pink Gem Designs). Card candi & top notch card blank (Crafty Emma's Store), and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Release Day Over At DigiStamp Boutique...

Hi all. Hopefully this should schedule nice and early to coincide with the latest images going live over on the DigiStamp Boutique website. If you hadn't guessed, it's a Valentine's release this time. Six sweet images plus sentiments too!

I used a technique that the lovely Janet told me about, where you open up a digi patterned paper in 'Page Plus', then overlay your 'png' file digi image. When you print out, the image will still be blank for you to colour etc, but the background is patterned. (Thanks Janet!) I used Pink Petticoat papers today. The lovely lined one is from the 'Perfect Papers' set. I used my EK Success border punch (I think it's called 'Spiral', as in spiral bound?) to make it look like a page from a note book. I also used the lined paper inside the card. The 'Pretty Little Heart' paper is called just that!

I also used Baker's Twine, Gems, and a lovely shaped card blank from Crafty Emma's Store.

Hope you like? Sorry the photo's are a bit pants, but I had to use my daylight lamp. You can't beat natural daylight and a bit of sunshine can you?
Please do pop over to DigiStamp Boutique to see the other sweet images. 
Thanks so much for popping by!

Edited To Add;
Images will now be on sale tonight lol...along with even more newies, so please keep checking xx

We have the first challenge of the year for you over at A Gem Of A Challenge, where our lovely Rebekah has a piccy to use as inspiration;

Meanwhile over at CES Challenges, Claire has a nice and easy one for you, 'Anything Goes!'

So here's my first card of 2012 for you to fit both.  

Love Heart Teddy digi from Pink Gem Designs (sale on at the moment!),
Lacey Oval Nesties also from Pink Gem Designs,
Flexmarkers (Crafty Emma's Store)
MME 'Blush' Lost & Found papers (Crafty Emma's Store)
Various flowers also from Emma's Store,
Memory Box Spring Border Die,
Leone Em leaf punch.

Please check the challenge blogs to get some more inspiration from the rest of the DT's, and also for prize details.

I've had to move & pack some of my craft stuff away over Christmas and it was a nightmare making this card as I couldn't find anything lol!
I think a good old sort out and some reorganisation is needed.
As soon as I'm straight I will get back into the swing of things properly and catch up with your blogs, which I'm very sorry for neglecting just lately...hope you can forgive me. 
Thanks for the get well wishes for my little man and his Chicken Pox. All the spots have dried up now and he's fine. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Very Happy New Year.... all my lovely followers. Hope you had fun bringing in the new year. We were celebrating at my Mum's. At around midnight I noticed a few spots on my 3yr old. Next morning he was covered, and it turns out he has Chickenpox!! Poor little man can't sleep for the pain and itching, hence I'm typing this up at almost 2 in the morning! I'm just glad my others already caught it a few years ago. Hope you had a better start to 2012?

If you have any Christmas pennies waiting to be spent, why not check out the 30% off sale at DigiStamp Boutique?

Meanwhile Pink Gem Designs have 15% off digi products & polymer stamps throughout January, plus other special offers such as 40% off mulberry flowers.

Crafty Emma's Store are still offering a whopping 20% off all products if you quote SALE20 at the checkout.

I can't wait to get the house back to normal now that all the festivities are over, and get stuck into crafting again. Looks like I'll have little man off school for a bit longer though until his Chickenpox clear up!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
