Birthday Dinosaur

It's Monday morning over in Australia and that means it's time for another challenge over at MIM

Heidi is generously offering our winning commenter 3 digi images!

These are super cute digis and I have had the pleasure of working with Birthday Dino

I have made a side stepper card and have foiled both the image and verse in silver.

I have coloured the image using copics and have used a variety of die cuts to embellish the card.

Someone Special

MIM Challenge #154 - Anything Goes

The weeks are flying by and it's another Challenge over at MIM and our wonderful sponsor this week is:

It has to be said I completely adore Bugaboo Stamps and knew instantly which digi I wanted to play with! If you've never bought a Bugaboo digi you are missing out on a real treat, they are awesome!

Our sponsor is kindly offering this weeks winner 7 single digis of your choice! WOW!

Here is my project using Ava Fairy Special

 Now I wanted to make something a little bit different so to start with I FOILED the digi image and loved the way it turned out. 
I have then coloured the image using Copics.
I have made a flower cupcake, a play on the 'fairy special' sentiment (fairy cake) and have made a little box for the cupcake to sit in and have added a little window so you can see the goodies inside.
The Fairy sentiment pulls out of the cupcake and I have left the tag blank so a personal message can be written.
I have decorated both sides of the gift bag and have added a larger version of the sentiment stamp onto the back of the gift box, once again I foiled this image first and then coloured it with Copics. 
I have added a hidden tag behind the large sentiment image on the back of the bag.

I hope you like my little project and please visit my DT blogs for some wonderful inspiration for these amazing Bugaboo Stamps and come and join the fun over at MIM this week to be in with a chance of winning this superb prize.

May Day Brigitta

MIM Challenge #152 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new weekly challenge over at MIM and this week our sponsor is:

C.C. Designs was started in 2006 from my love of all things art. Since 2006 they have added additional Illustrators and dies. 

The sponsor is generously offering the winner of this weeks challenge a $15 Gift Certificate.

The images are beautiful and versatile, here is my take on May Day Brigitta, she is available in rubber and digital form.

I have loved playing with this image and I have coloured her using copics, using lovely bright colours for the flowers. The backing paper is from stock and it has a lovely glossy sheen, the plain blue is a shimmer card stock that is available form Create and Craft and comes in large pads of 12 x 12 cardstock in mixed colours.
The flowers are WOC and the decorative edge of the card is a Martha Stewart punch, I have also stitched around the edge of the panels for extra texture.

Thank you for taking the time to pop over and take a look and go on join in the fun over at MIM and you never know you might just be our lucky winner this week!

The lovely ladies over at MIM have made some wonderful inspirational cards this week so pop over and take a look at out DT's designs.
