This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES although you must use a DIGI somewhere on your project - so why not take a look at the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique and be inspired!


This week I've been spoilt and have had the chance to use one of the new and amazing stamps by Bonne Kelly from The Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.

This stamp is called "Virgo" but as I'm not into astrolIogy I have used it as a card for a boyfriend/husband etc and  coloured this stamp with copics and polychromos pencils.

The papers are from QVC and Crafters Companion and I just liked the dramatic blue/black with the pink of the girl's clothing.

I used a xyron runner to print the sentiment and drew a border to edge it.

Embellishments:  Clear gem flourishes, faux brads and layered flower.

Hope you like my design as I really enjoyed experimenting with gouache and playing around with the flourishes etc.  Do join in with this week's birthday celebrations and may be it might be you winning one of the prizes on offer this week.

Best wishes,

This is my first card for OSAAT challenge this week featuring one of the Kenny K digital images.  This is a super easy challenge as its ANYTHING GOES as long as there is a digital image somewhere on your project.

The  Kenny K's  image I have worked with is called "DRAMA QUEEN"  - hopefully I have nothing in common with a Drama Queen!!  Icoloured with copics and polychromos pencils.

I used a template to paper pierce the borders on the image.

I used a gold calligraphy pen to edge all the mats before layering up.  The paperstock was from QVC and Crafters Companion.

Dies:  Magnolia Doily flower dies  (glitter cardstock - freebies with crafting orders)

Embellishments:  Fabric brad.

I hope to you like this and feel free to leave me a comment.

Best wishes and good luck to those of you entering this week's challenge.


I was sat up all night one day last week when I couldn't sleep and had Create and Craft on in the background.  Suddenly my attention was caught by some old seaside images being shown.  Well that was it - straight on to webpage to order.  Out of STOCK came up to my dismay... not being able to except my disappointment on to Joanna Sheen's website and walla.. ordered and as you can see - received!!!

This image is called "Seahorse" (probably because the stamp comes with a seahorse and tent) and is part of the "All our Yesterdays" stamps (12) collection by Faye Whittaker.

 I coloured with copics and polychromos pencils and left the sentiment as part of the stamp (although can be cut off and used separately which I will probably do in the future).

The papers were part of a paper pack from Quitoxic Paperie and Crafters Companion.

Embellishments:  Faux brads, Ribbon and bow, Flower with button (all from QVC)

Hope you like this collection of stamps as much as I do.

Best wishes,
