Christmas card and Facebook group challenge

Hello everyone! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season. Like for most of us December is a really busy time of the year so here is a quick entry of my recently made Christmas card. I used Lizzy's from Oddball Art Stamps Ellie the Elf image no: 120 from her etsy shop. You can find the store here and as a Designer Team member participated for the Facebook challenge.

I used some old papers from my stash as a background and cut some strips to back the photo. The digi stamp is coloured with promarkers and the litte tag comes from Smashbook Christmas pad from K&Company.  Added them some red sequins and few perfect pearl drops. 

This card is put into following challenges:

Hiking trip in Zakopane Slideshow

So I have been trying to catch up with my project life and started sorting out my pictures from September's hiking trip to Polish Mountains. I often make slideshows as a nicer form of showing off my photos and this time stumbled upon this free trip advisor programme. I love it!

Birthday card for my Mum

So I do not make many cards but decided to get more into making them and for a practise run made this little card for my Mother. I hope I will make all my Christmas cards myself for this year but with quite a few projects I am currently working on I hope I will be able to do this. So here is this adorable card using this cute Magnolia stamp. I coloured her using my new Promarkers and added some roses from my stash and little  grunge heart. The letters above the bakers twine say : on your birthday.

I decided to add this card to a challenge:

1. That Craft Place - Anything goes.
2. Addicted to Stamps - Anything goes.
3. Love to Create - Anything goes.

Halloween Blog Challenge at Oddball arts stamp

So this is another designer team challenge entry for the month of October. The way it works at the moment is that the DT entries are split into 2 groups hence my late posting.  October's challenge was to make a spooky card or item like Halloween but not necessarily. I made this mixed media page in my altered photo album using silhouette cuts and Lizzy Love's Zombie girl digital stamp no: 46. Here are some pictures of the finished page.

Here is the YouTube video of the full altered album and the challenge page. 

The challenge is still life and there is still time to take the part. Here are some useful links:

Oddball Art Stamps DT: challenge no 1

I am so so lucky to have been chosen to be an Oddball Art Stamp design team member and already have participated in the first Facebook challenge. As I am currently studying for my level 5 qualifications at work I decided to do something I could use. Here is my altered school diary for 2014-2015 academic year. 

Here are some pictures of the finish product:

I have used Fimo modelling clay to make the blue pencil and heart charms. 

I used my Neocolor II watersolubles, acrylic paints, Dylusion sprays, Rangers Distress stain and liquid pearls for the background. Adhered lace ribbon and added a digi stamp by Oddball Art Stamps. Added modelling paste, handmade fimo hearts and some flowers. At the end using my labeling machine printed out the year.

Here is the close up of the beautiful stamp made by Lizzy and link to her etsy shop(click on a link):

I hope you liked the finished project as much as I loved working on it. I am looking forward to my next challenges that are to come on monthly basis... but stay tuned to see more of my work with amazing stamps from Lizzy Love!!!

Frozen inspired shoes

My little niece Lottie is a massive fan of Elsa and her sister Anna so as the school soon starts again I hand painted her those back to school shoes. Firstly I used white fabric pain to cover dark background then acrylic pains and sparkly mod modge at the end. I hope she will love it when she received it before school time... will see!

Wedding present

So my cousin got married in April.. she was doing a really small party and with the expenses of the last months and the prices of the tickets we were unable to fly to Poland for the occasion. So I decided to make her a little present and personalised the cotton bag. I used a digital stamp from etsy from flat friends store coloured it and after scanning printed it out on iron in paper. Loved the  picture and had printed their names and date of birth using my cameo. Easy present that was well received!

Birthday card for my sister

So I know I have not been present here for such a long time and it seems I keep disappearing for a while and then I am back with the vengeance...

Well just because I was offline it does not mean I was not crafting... just after Christmas got myself a silhouette cameo and had been cutting almost constantly. Already had to replace the first mat and even the second is worn out and will not stick. Anyway here is a card I made today for my sister.

I made this card using Sherri Baldy's stamp from her etsy shop. I printed the image and colored it with my neocolor II watersolubles crayons. The fish scale background, Happy Birthday word and the vine flourishes are a cut from cameo and the 2 flowers were from my stash.

Would like to put this card into the challenges below:

1. Rhedd and Rosie's challenge blog - Anything goes.
2. The Squirrel and the Fox - Use embellishments.
3. hThe Rubber Buggy Challenge - Anything goes.

Thanks for bearing with me!
