Not exactly a Big Bad Wolf.

Morning - We have a new challenge #348 starting at I love promarkers and the theme is Winter. My DT worlds collide again as the sponsor is The Paper Shelter and I have used one called Not Exactly a Big Bad Wolf.

The papers are from Basic Grey Juniper Berry collection and as it is quite a busy background - I've not added much other than a strip of ribbon mounted onto Kraft card. I also added a few little pale pink gems to the middle of some of the flowers.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image =
Skin - Uusal
Jumper -  Maroon, Wild Cranberry & Pink Lobster
Hat & Shorts - Gold, Heatwave & Sunset.
Tights, Dog & Hair - Warm Greys

I added a little White gel pen to give detail and used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen on the bobble of her hat.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

I'll be back soon with more christmas cards!

Naughty or nice List?

Morning - So it is offically less than a month till Christmas so you will all be in the midst of making Christmas cards and pressies no doubt. This card is made using an image called Naughty or Nice?
I think I am probably somewhere in between - Too cheeky to be nice but more mischievous than naughty!!

I used paped from Lawn Fawn Perfectly plaid Christmas pad. I die cut the image using a My Favourite things Die and mounted it on kraft card. The little greeting tabs are sticker from Pink Fresh Oh Joy collection and I mounted these on gold mirri. I also used gold pen on the image and the wooden present to tie it all together. The die cut branches I have had for ages and can't remember where they were from. The little flower was from Hobbycraft.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Usual combo with baby pink cheeks and nose
Trousers - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Powder blue shading on his shirt.
Boots - Cool greys and black
Braces - Raw Sienna
Cuffs - Linen & Tan
Hair & Beard - Cool grey 1 & 3

So hope you like what I did with Santa and I will see you all again soon,

Boys Christmas Stocking.

I absolutly love new release time at All Dressed Up. I am so lucky to get these images to play with but not only that ... Wendy lets us make requests for images!! This month I was asked by  a friend to make Christmas Cards for her Son and Daughter. I really want to similar images so I could make the cards co-ordinate but I just couldn't find any such matching images... so I cheekily asked Wendy to draw them! I even got to send her photos of the children and they are just perfect little mini me's of them!! I am sure they will be really popular with lots of you out there too. 

This one is called Boys Christmas Stocking.

I covered the base card with paper from Pink Fresh December days collection and then used a scalloped edge die to cut a strip of red paper from American Crafts. I die cut a blue oval from Doodlebug paper and layered all these together with some ribbon. I cut around the image and used 3d foam to attach him to the base card. I used promarkers to colour the bottom layer of the Make It Crafty chipboard and glued them together. I added the letters to spell out Ronan from Websters Pages and I also stamped the top tag using Lawn Fawn Harolds ABC letters. Finally I used some star dust stickles on the fluff of his Santa Hat.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and flexmarkers -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft peach, Coral & Spice with Baby Pink cheeks.
Hat & Top - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Jeans - True Blue & Royal Blue
Shoes - Indigo Blue
Powder blue to shade white areas and Emerald Green details.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

You Will have to wait for me to show you the Girl version  as I will be playing with that one next! But you can see all the new release images and the DT inspiration over at the All Dressed Up BLOG. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Chris is eating again!

Do you have those Go-to images when mojo has taken a little break and you just dont't know what do ? Well this is one of mine... I have so many ideas of things to do with  Christmas Chris that I can always rely on some creativity. My crafting goes through phases as well and right now I am definitely favouring a clean and simple layout.
Well its raining here so I think I will be printing out a few more of the Go-to Dr Digi images to play with. 

The paper is from Doodlebug Santa Express and I die cut the panel using My Favourite things scalloped edge die - in fact these are all my regular and fav products! I attached the white panel with 3d foam and tied some twine around it which I knotted with a little bow and glued a little chipboard star from Make it Crafty. The greeting is from Kaisercraft Clear stickers collection.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Christmas Chris -
Skin - Usual with cocktail pink cheeks and ears.
Onesie - Tan, Cinnamon, Cocoa & Henna. 
Belly & Antlers - Light Fawn and Saffron
Nose - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy

All for now - I'm off to stare at all my papers and images and hope more inspiration presents itself!!
