Summer time!! Well it is over at Craft Punked

Dare I say it.......*whispers* it has not rained today - wow - well to celebrate we are having a summer theme over at Craft Punked and this weeks challenge is sponsored by the fab Bugaboo.  Here is my DT card:

The image is from bugaboo and has been coloured using promarkers.  The papers are DCWV Boys Stack.  Superman is discretely hidden behind the image as I thought the paper looked like rays of sunshine.  I cut the embellishments using my Cricut cart 'Life's a Beach' and coloured these with promarkers to match the digi image.  The card has been finished off with a LOTV sentiment.

Well I am hoping this sunny card will entice the sun to stay out a little bit longer - well at least for the next week or so as we are going on holiday!  As long as we have fun though!

Well thanks for stopping by - why not pop over to Craft Punked and join in the summer fun.

Its all in one colour

Morning!  Its Friday again which means only one thing....its challenge time over at Craft Punked and this weeks challenge is Monochrome!  This is my DT card:

As you can see I have chosen pink for my single colour.  I created the sentiment using Wordart and layered it on to some pink card.  The buttons were cut using a sizzix embosslit, in various colours of pink and stuck using pinflair glue to add a little bit of dimension.  If you fancy a challenge and the chance to win some blog candy, why not pop over and have a look :)  Thanks for stopping by :)  Vanessa x

Short and Sweet!

Well I have a few friends on Faceboook that have gone Twinchy mad and have set up a blog called Show Us Your Twinchies!!  So what are twinchies?  Well there are 2x2 inch pieces of art - simples!!  Well kind of you would think that being so small that it would be easy to decorate, but its not as simple as it looks but they are very addictive.  Well today, despite my hands being numb (and getting worse), I was determined to do some crafting and thought that I would have a go at some more twinchies so here they are:

I photographed the top one alongside a whispers pen - just so you can gauge how small they actually are!

Well if you fancy a Twinchy challenge why not pop over to the Twinchy Blog and have a go :)

I can't wait to make these in to cards now and its great to have a ready made topper ;)  thanks for stopping by.  Vanessa x

The Cupboard Trilogy Blog Challenge

Wow its the 1st of July already and today is the launch of the new blog competitions on The Cupboard Trilogy blog - the challenges for this are going to be set on a monthly basis, which gives you lots of time to get your thinking caps on to come up with an entry.  To kick start the challenges the DT were given a colour palette and we had to pick at least 3 colours from the following:

Here are my DT creations:

I have chosen to to make two cards - one for the men using the greens and beige colours.  The other using the pink, raspberry and beige and an image from Pollycraft which has been coloured with Promarkers.

As you will see when you pop over to the blog, there are 3 teams of crafters.  Card Makers, Scrapbookers and Digi Scrapbookers.  I am part of the card making team, however, we have the chance to make a DT creation for the other teams too if we are feeling inspired and have the time to do so.  I have never tried Digi scrapbooking but I recently downloaded a free program from Daisytrails and had a go - here is my digi page:

I must admit I have got quite addicted to it and am considering buying the full program.

I hope my creations have inspired you and please head on over to the Trilogy Blog to see all the other stunning creations by the DT.  I can't wait to see all your entries.  Thanks for stopping by xx
