Charisma #26 - Your favourite Ice Cream Flavours!

Mine are Vanilla and Strawberry, so I've made a very pink and creamy card!

Buy our digi stamps here...
Your Choice of SIX single Digi's from Digistamp Boutique!

AND....


The lovely Heidi from Stamp Shoppe is offering one lucky winner this week a $15 voucher to spend at her shop!!!


Now onto my project! I've used a fun cupcake image by Digistamp Boutique and coloured with Promarkers. I've cut it out with nesties labels one and inked the edges with scattered straw distress ink. The paper is from my new stack called Sugar and Spice by Dovecraft, really different papers than they usually come up with!
The sentiment is a stamp by Fiskars and I've stamped it onto a tag cut with Nesties fancy tags. The leaves are made with a MS punch and the ribbon and flowers are from stash. I've added dots of stickle here and there for a bit of sparkle, of course ;)

The Dragonfly is coloured with Sakura glitter gel pens. The Paper is by Basic Grey and I've used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges.

AUD Sentiments #30 - Summer Fun

Hi all! My third (and final!!) post of the day is for the new challenge at AUD sentiments - Summer Fun. We want to see your summery projects!

We are sponsored by Revi Devi this week, and I've used their Gardening set to create this digi-scene, coloured with Promarkers. The paper is from the Tatty Ted paper pack and the sentiment is handwritten. The flowers and dewdrops are from stash, and the leaves are made with a MS punch.
Thankyou for stopping by!

CRAFT #106 - Father's Day

At CRAFT our theme for our new challenge is Father's Day, sponsored by the lovely folks over at Some Odd Girl.

I've used a digital image which was a freebie from Meljens and I thought it would make a great image for a Father's day card. I've coloured with promarkers and cut with Nesties labels 2, and inked around the edges of the image with Pumice Stone distress ink. The sentiment is a stamp by Dovecraft and the card candy is from Craftwork cards, coloured with Promarkers as well. The paper is a scrap from stash.
