Bombshell Stamps - A Cut Above Blog Hop

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so that means it's time for another Hump Day Hop with Bombshell Stamps.  This month we want to see you go 'A Cut Above' the rest and show us what you can do with die cuts and your gorgeous Bombshell Stamps.

Here's my creation
For my card I used the beautiful 'Rose's Portrait' Stamp. I've coloured her with a mixture of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white Graph'it pen for highlights.
For my frame i've used the new 5 x 7 Reflective Moment Die from Spellbinder. I love this die, perfect for picture frames and mirrors, I can see me using it alot.  I coloured the die cut with Gold Promarker around the edge to give the impression of a frame, before adding some Midnight metallic gilding wax and a little white pen.
I used papers by 7 Gypsies along with some black card stock.  I also used a Tonic Rose Border Punch to create the black panels behind my image.

Here's the full blog hop list, just so you don't miss any stops


Have a wonderful time hopping, Thank you so much for visiting with me today

Tag your it with Digi Galore

Welcome to another fun challenge post, it's time for a new challenge over at the Digi Galore Challenge Blog, and this time our theme is...
Yes, we want you to make a Tag, no cards allowed, so show us your best tag, remember tags can be pretty much any shape you like, as long as there is some way to attach it to something else, then the sky's the limit, here's my tag
Our sponsor for this challenge was Funky Hand, so I used there super cute 'Star Cake' digital stamp for my tag. I coloured my image with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, before die cutting it with a square die.  My paper, washi tape, twine and luggage ticket sticker all came from Papermania's All Aboard Collection.  I found some letter tiles in my stash to create my sentiment.

I have to say I love how this turned out, the perfect tag for a go away gift for someone who is off on a big adventure. I hope you'll have as much fun as I did with our challenge, just remember to hop over to the Digi Galore Challenge Blog, to check out the awesome creations from the rest of the Design Team, and to find out how you can join in and be in with the chance of a lovely prize from our sponsor.

Rick St. Dennis Progressive Challenge will get you all Steamy!

All Steampunky to be exact, Today I'd like to share with you a steampunk creation made featuring an awesome image by the extremely talented Mr Rick St. Dennis.  This is my EDT creation for the May Progressive Challenge over at the Sparkle and Glitter Rick St.Dennis EDT Blog, the challenge is very simple you just have to create something on the monthly theme using a Rick St. Dennis image, and if you do you get a free special image for the following months challange.

So here's my Steampunk creation using the beautiful Olympia;
I requested a Coppelia inspired Dancing Clockwork Robot, and Olympia is the awesome creation that appeared in my inbox courtesy of the wonderful Rick St. Dennis.  Isn't she just divine!  I love her, and had a great time colouring her with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers.

My background papers are from a Digital Scrapbooking Kit inspired by Alice in Wonderland from Divine Digital. (Unfortunately looks like they are no longer trading) I chose a rather wild pattern for my main background, so decided to keep embellishment to a minimum, and die cut some cogs and watch parts using my Xcut Dies and Black Card stock.

Here is a close up of Olympia;
I just love the level of detail in this image, you can see all her cogs and working parts.
Want to get your hands on Olympia, well she'll be in Rick's Stores really soon, so make sure you check out the Rick St Dennis Etsy Store and Zibbet Store for this and loads more awesome images.

Don't forget to visit the Sparkle and Glitter Rick St. Dennis EDT Blog to check out the truly wonderful creations from the rest of the EDT, and to take part in our challenge.  Want to show us your creations and get more inspiration from Rick and the EDT, then join the Rick St. Dennis Fans & Friends Facebook Group.

I'd like to enter this card into the current Passion for ProMarkers challenge which has the theme of 'No Sentiment' this time around.

Can you Alter It with That Craft Place

It's time for a new challenge over at the 'That Craft Place Challenge Blog' and this time the theme is;

I went for the Alter It option, and decided to Alter a Picture Frame, here's what i came up with;
I used the awesome 'The Pilot' image by Lisa Cree for this project, you can find this image and lots more wonderful digital stamps and sentiments in the DitzieDigiDesign shop on Etsy.

For my background I used Broken China and Stormy Sky Distress Inks to give the impression of a cloudy sky, I create a rough mask for my clouds using some scrap paper and a pair of scissors.  I then used Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink with a Chicken Wire and an Eye Chart Mask/Stencil to add some contrast to my background, and give it a little more of a steampunk/industrial feel.

My image was coloured with Letraset Tria and Promarkers, before being fussy cut and glued to my frame. I heat set the ink on my frame before adding my image, and then added a coat of Aleene's Glossy Collage Pauge to seal my project, you could use Mod Podge for this step too.  I just went with the first sealant that came to hand.

That's all from me for today, Don't forget to hop over to the 'That Craft Place Challenge Blog' to check out the rest of the Design Teams awesome creations.

Thank you for visiting with me today

Getting Krafty with Digi Galore

Today I'd like to share with you my first DT project for Digi Galore Challenges I'm so honoured and excited to be on this wonderful team, I'm sure most of you know how much I love working with Digital Stamps and Digi Galore is one of the best places for finding information, inspiration and lots of link to gorgeous images by very talented artists.

The theme of this weeks challenge is
Print your image onto Kraft paper/cardstock or use it for your Card base or background, whatever you like, just make sure there is some Kraft in your project.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Art by Miran
Here is my card using the beautiful Princess Digital Stamp;
My image is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with some Graph'It White Shake It for highlights; along with some Dark Red Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen for the embroidery details on her dress. I used Kraft card stock for my card base, with papers from First Edition's J'Adore Paper Pad and 7Gypsies Classic Paper Pack.  I used some embossed metallic stickers for my decorative edges.

That's all I did, a very simple card, but with such a beautiful image, it didn't need a lot of decoration. I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for visiting with me today, and don't forget to pop over to the Digi Galore Challenge blog to see the beautiful creations from the rest of the Design Team, and to find full details of how to join in our challenge.
