SG Spots and Dots


Hello and welcome.

I am share with you a post for our new challenge at Southern Girls Challenges.

Our theme - Spots and Dots
Our sponsor - The Paper Shelter

I have used a sponsors pre-coloured digital image called She's Charming.

The image comes with a printed background and I adjusted the size to what I wanted and printed the image with the background.

I then printed the coloured images individually two (2) more times.

I then cut out various parts of the image and paper pieced them on the base image to add a little height and depth the card.

Here is my card: 



I layered the hair, makeup sponge, bow and dress.

Here is a close up of the image.


I stamped the sentiment which is from the SU Postcard Pals stamp set.

It reads " Hope your day is filled with fun and lots of Happy Surprises!"

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

The Paper Shelter Challenge - #354 Sentimental
Crafting from the Heart Challenge - #220 Anything Goes
Pammies Inky Challenge - #1837 Anything Goes
Creations in Pink Challenge - #2 Anything Goes in Mainly Pink

Here is a close up of the image.



I added some small yellow rhinestones on the flowers on her clothes and the middle of the ribbon. Plus some clear ones on the paper.

The sentiment is from the SU Beautiful Promenade Stamp set and stamped in SU Garden Green.  It was then die cut using a die cut from the SU Stitched Labels Framelit dies.

CC No Square


Hello, just a quick post to share with you my card for our new challenge at Creatalicious Challenges.

Our theme as always is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist - No Square or Rectangle
Our Sponsor is The Paper Shelter and they have wonderful digital images.  

I have used one of our sponsors images called Butterfly Whisperer and the image can be coloured but also comes with pre-coloured options so I have decided to showcase the pre-coloured image.

When the image was printed it was fussy cut along with the little butterfly and layered on cardstock.

Here is my card:


The base card shape was created using a Marianne Creatables Die LR0327.


I rounded the colours of some DSP and found the sweet words on another DSP in my draw.



The words read love, smile, dream, happy, create, life, laugh, today, pretty bliss, peace,
joy, bless and then it repeats itself. 

The pearls just added a little bit of embellishment.

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

CC No DSP



Hello and welcome,

Just sharing with you a card I created for our new challenge at Creatalicious.

Our theme: Anything Goes with optional no Patterned Paper
Our sponsor: Di's Digi Stamps

I think that adding no patterned papers to your projects can be hard and it took me a while to come up with a design.

In the end I chose a really CAS layout with a little pop of light colour.

Here is my card:


Unfortunately the photo has turned out a little darker than I wanted as the base card used is SU Blackberry Fig which is a dark rich grape colour.

The pop of colour is given with a few leaves and branches which have been stamped in SU Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide and the stamps are from the SU Abstract Impressions stamp set.


The twine is SU Natures Mint Macaroon Twine.



The sentiment is from the SU Love What You Do Stamp set and have been stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and layered on a die from the SU Stitched Labels Framelits Die.

Have a super day.
