Challenge 56
Love Actually

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

For this weeks theme of Love Actually I have used a new Ike's image called Lake Love, what a truly beautiful image, one which contains so many of the things I relate to when I think of LOVE - a quiet moment with my best friend and hubby when our two souls become one, river water which draws me into a truly calm state, I can sit by a river for ages just watching nature passing by, and woodland, oooo the smell of the woodland tickle all of my senses - yep this image shouted love to me big time.

Keeping the nature feel of the card I used hessian (burlap) to cover the card blank and also to mat the image, it smell wonderful lol.


Ingredients:-
  • image - Lake Love by IKEsART
  • colouring medium - Promarkers, Polychromos and Pan Pastels
  • dies - Sizzix Love, Birds and Hearts set
  • from my stash - cold line stickers, gold peel off sentiment, gold pen

TIC TAC TOE


I do love a tic tac toe challenge so really enjoyed myself with this one :)


I used the image 'Little Miss Weeble' by Stitchy Stamps and coloured her with Promarkers.  Next I fussy cut her as I really wanted her to pop on my card.
Now for the line on the Tic Tac Toe grid which I have followed - Three or More Layers, Lots of Blue and Pearls.  My card has a total of 7 layers.  The card blank and large purple circle were embossed with a Tim Holtz texture embossing folder.  The bottom blue layer was stamped with and oriental design and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  To this layer I added my next layer of a Tattered Lace die - Border 2.  The blue circle mount used the die - Triple Tear by Spellbinders and added some large flat backed pearl and my fussy cut image.  Finally, using Spellbinders Circles and gold heat embossing I made my sentiment and added a small gold bow.

Ground Hog

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge 55
What's the Weather

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

Now I rather liked this image Ike has just drawn and so perfect for this challenge but I had to and find out what this Ground Hog thing is all about as it is somewhat new to me.  I guess living in Saudi we pretty much know what the weather will be, Summer all year long although we do have a sort of winter when the winds pick up and the temperatures drop and then in the Summer it is rather like an over lol but a true winter as I know we have in the UK, well I have not seen one of those for a wee while now and don't really have any desire to see on in the near future.  I guess I am a sunshine lover through and through :)  I know the digi image has snowflakes but the nearest we get to the wet stuff is a wee bit of rain so I am going to pretend the snowflakes are big drops of water sparkling in the sun hahaha.



Ingredients:-
  • image - Ground Hog by IKEsART
  • colouring medium - Polychromos, Promarkers and Pan Pastels
  • dies - Spellbinders Victorian Medllion 3

Call of the Wild

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #253 

Theme Anything Goes with

Not Square or Rectangle 

Oh Blogger - why play up today.  I have just come by to check my post I wrote a couple of days ago to make sure it published only to find it has totally vanished off my blog posts grrrrrrr.  Sorry this a quickie now but need to get to bed hahaha.

For my creation I used Call of the Wild by Reeces Scrap Pieces, a fab set with both a pre coloured image and another for you to colour yourself.


I made the paper bead using the same paper used for the background by cutting a very long triangle piece and starting to wind using a quilling tool from the wide end of the triangle.
 The sentiment was cut with a Tattered Lace die and attached with a metal spiral paper clip.


Ingredients:-
  • Image - Call of the Wild by Reeces Scrap Pieces
  • Dies - Tattered Lace sentiment, Spellbinders Circles, and Diamondessence
  • From my Stash - Stickles, spiral paperclip, metal brads

Fruity Babies Watermelon

 Hope you have had a great Christmas folks and are not too worn out after all the festivities :)  Today for my DT creation I am using Janice Cullen's Fruity Babies Watermelon available from Sweet Pea Stamps in rubber.

To begin with I rummaged through my stash of free papers from magazines which I seem to have to make a real effort to use as I always forget about them hahaha. I embossed my chosen paper with a butterfly folder and then mounted this on pink card to match the watermelon on the digi.  The digi, by the way, was coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Polychromos.  Next I cut a die using Sizzix Frames Ornate Moroccan and added some green butterfly gems and lighter green flower gems.

The inside of the card was finished off with the remaining scraps of my design paper with a pink card Spellbinder lattice on top.  Nice an simple :)

Ingredients :-
  • Digi - Janice Cullen's Fruity Babies Watermelon
  • Colouring medium - Promarkers and Polychromos
  • Dies - Sizzix Frames Ornate Moroccan and Spellbinder Lattice
  • From my stash - Gems, dp from a magazine

The image is coloured with Promarkers and the die set I used is Oval Floral.  the white mount layers and the red layer below them have been coloured in a way to to give the impression of another gold mount between them and the smallest mount has been finished off with a white snowflake brad.

The bag was a plain white bag which I covered with Christmas paper and finally the addition of a Christmas bow in red and green and finished off with two bells and a gold pipe cleaner.
