Scrapper's Delights Thrifty Thursday 16th November 2017


Christmas would not be Christmas without reindeers, so for my Thrifty Thursday inspiration, coloured with Copics of course.  I decided to use a shimmery mauve cardstock for a change from the usual Christmas colours and because purple and mauve are my favourite colours.  I have chosen Deer 5 to play with.  He can be found here http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=1046.  I have combined him with our globe digi available here http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_97&products_id=729. It is easy to combine Scrapper's Delights Christmas images to create beautiful scenes. Be sure to keep an eye out at the shop http://scrappersdelights.com/store/ for any specials on Christmas/Winter digis so you can finish your Christmas card list and tags.

Bugaboo Stamps "Santa Called"

I love Bugaboo's Stella stamps and when I saw this one coloured by someone on Facebook, I just knew I had to source it.  I knew it was a Bugaboo image, but I couldn't find it on the website.  After emailing Jodie, I found out it was one she had not transferred over from the old site and she put it on the new site straightaway.  What a great sentiment comes with it!

Scrapper's Delights November Progressive Challenge

November's Progressive Challenge is Deer 6,  part of Scrapper's Delights' new release which was showcased on the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group last weekend.  You may have been lucky enough to pick this cute little deer up there.  For my card, I have used one of Scrapper's Delights Winter Background Toppers
http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_97&products_id=808. These background toppers are great to design a quick scene.  I have printed Deer 6 out as different sizes and flipped one of them, colouring them with Copics of course.  I came up with the sentiment myself. It is getting close to sending out those Christmas cards so have a think about using this little deer with or without some of our toppers.  The store link is here http://scrappersdelights.com/store/

I am entering the following challenges with this card:

Createful Heart Digis & Design 1900's Wedding Couple - 31st October 2017

My inspiration for Challenge #5 over at Createful Heart Digis & Design https://createfulheartcards.blogspot.com.au/ comes in the form of 1900's Wedding Couple https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/556209247/1900s-wedding-couple-vintage-stamp?ref=shop_home_active_15. I have made an Anniversary card with a vintage theme.  I hope it comes across that way anyhow.  I have distressed the edges of my design paper, added an embossed piece of cardstock that was embossed and inked.  I have coloured the image with Copics, added a brad that has the same pattern on it as the design paper and my embellishments include a resin border from The Resin Rainbow https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/theresinrainbow?ref=l2-shopheader-name&section_id=16222515 and some flowers and pearls from my stash also.  I hope you like my inspiration for this month and don't forget our fortnightly challenges over on our blog https://createfulheartcards.blogspot.com.au/

The Outlawz Challenges - October 2017 Progressive Challenge "The General Store"

This month's progressive challenge image is courtesy of Mary at Createful Heart Digis & Design.  The image is called "The General Store" and is available from Mary's Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/540302250/the-general-store-vintage-image-stamp?ref=shop_home_active_24.  I decided to do a general card to be used for whatever you want, for a friend, a new acquaintance or even a thank you.  The sentiment I found could cover quite a few different scenarios.  I mounted the image with blue cardstock and the card base is from a pack of pre-printed card bases  purchased from Kmart only yesterday. The pack has vintage themes, so will come in very handy for future vintage images from Createful Heart.

Imagine that Digistamp October 2017 Link-up

For this month's link-up at Imagine that Digistamp, I have chosen to make a Sympathy card with the image "Poppy" and the sentiment from the Matt 5-4 Image both available at the shop https://www.imaginethatdigistamp.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html. If you're quick you can pick the Matt 5-4 image up for free as it is still in the freebies category. 

Gerda Steiner October 2017 Progressive Challenge

This month Gerda has kindly given us "Raccoon" to play with and what a cutie he is!  I have coloured him with Copics and my background stamp of tree stumps was the perfect backdrop.  Thanks for dropping by and as usual a big thank you to Gerda for her progressive challenge each month.
