Crazy Bird Birthday

As soon as I saw the Crazy Birds rubber stamps from Tim Holtz I knew I had to have them. They lend themselves perfectly to happy and fun projects. Today I made a birthday card using inspiration from the vibrant colours of the mood board on the Scrapbook Boutique Challenge Blog. I don't have the dies as yet so I fussy cut the image and popped him up on dimensionals. The background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder - Happy Birthday.




I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Scrapbook Boutique Challenge blog  -  March Mood Board
Paper Play Sketches and Color Challenge - March Colour Challenge
Through The Craft Room Door  -  Anything Goes

A Spring Window

This month for the Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge we were given this lovely image from Beccys Place "Spring Window". As soon as I saw it I just knew a gate/fence would set it off. So, I hunted through my cut files till I found the one that suited what I was looking for.
Credit where credits due - the Gatefold Card is a free svg from Monica's Creative Room.
I wish now that I had made the flowers a bit more colourful and vibrant, but overall I'm happy with the way it turned out.

A Birthday Card

This card was created with inspiration from the "Mood Board" that they have each month on the Scrapbook Boutique blog.  I must admit that my first thought was - beach, but I needed a female Birthday card real quick so flowers it was. I coloured the stamped flowers with Distress Inks.

This is the Mood Board we had for inspiration.


I would also like to enter this card in the following challenge:

I can't believe how organized I am this year (so far), in that, I have already completed my card for the Outlawz Progressive/Freebie Challenge. Normally I am rushing at the last moment. I guess because it has been so hot here lately and all I want to do is stay indoors in the air-con.
I coloured the image, that was kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps, with chalks.

Butterfly Kisses

I made this card for the January Progressive/Freebie Challenge on the Outlawz Challenges site. I also entered it into the January 17 Colour Challenge because I think it fits well into that challenge as well.
The image was supplied by  All Dressed Up. The name of the image is Butterfly Kisses Girl.  Thank you, Wendy. 
Image was coloured with Copic Markers.

Warm Winter Wishes

Oh boy, it seems like ages since I posted anything to my blog. I have one today that I have done for the Progressive/Freebie Challenge over on the Outlawz  Challenges site.

The cute snowman image was created by Sandi Huggett of Sandi's Samples. I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils.

I created this card using the free image from Gerda Steiner Designs for the October Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge that is currently underway. The cute little tiger looked like he was having fun so I used bright fun colours. Image coloured with Copic markers.
