Knight card

There's a fabulous challenge over at CRAFT challenge, this week
.... Fairy tale.....
 Our sponsor is Glitterbabe and the generous prize is $10 for her online shop which you can find here
The knight image is one of giltterbabes digi images

The knight image I've used for my DT card is one of Giltterbabes digi images

Reciepe: I used one of my favourite paper packs, I'm sure we all have one, I hate to use the papers from it though as I love to look at the papers. Anyway I finally gave in and used a sheet as I thought it fitted the theme. So the paper is from a DCWV paper pack. I've added glitter on the edges and glitter onto the image so that it matched the glitter dots already on the paper. I've then added a ribbon (SU).

Inked Fairy Card

I went to the Artstamps show at Newbury last weekend and finally i've been inspired to use the Lavina stamps that I bought 18 months ago. I've always loved the inked cards but they look so hard to do. After watching a demo at the show I decided to have a go when I got home. It's not perfect, I think the colours in the sky could be stronger but I'm pleased with it as a first attempt. I'll keep practicing.

The background is inked using distress inks, I used bit of torn paper to get the hills and masked out a circle for the moon. I stamped the tree and Lavina fairy using Versafine black ink and then added the leaves (another Lavina stamp) using distress inks . I then added the cute fairy message (Lavina again) and mounted the while thing onto some silver paper, added bling in the corners and Stickles glitter to the fairydust before mounting onto a card blank.

I'd like to enter this into the

Exploading box

This week at CRAFT challenge we have a fun challenge for you


I'm really looking forward what you come up with

The winner this week gets a voucher from Toucan Scraps for Angelas online shop at Stitchy bear stamps

Some of the CRAFT Dt have made boxes from templates in Angelas shop, you can see their creations here

I made an exploading box for my friends little boy who was one for my DT project. I made the same friend one for her first son and she still has it on display 4 years later, so I know it's appreciated.

Most of the decorations is using shapes cut out from Nesties from coordinations card in turquoise and yellow. I've added some Doodlebug rub ons to the lid and a cute baby charm from Meiflower crafts

I've stamped some animal images for the sides which I've coloured in with Promarkers

I added some ribbon around the lid in blue and decorated the outside with some punched stars from adhesive glitter paper

Here's a close up of the lid

And here's the inside. I've added a photo to each square that were taken from birth up until a week before his first birthday. Again most of the shapes are cut from nesties and I've decorated it with silver punched stars as well as adding his date of birth with rub ons in the center. Isn't he such a cute baby, a couple of weeks again I became his proud Godmother :-)
