SCRAPPER'S DELIGHTS THURSDAY INSPIRATION 20th April 2017

Steampunk, something I am not real confident with, maybe it's my age group, but I ventured out of my comfort zone and chose Chastity Steampunk 2 for this card http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_206&products_id=884
As a matter of fact, Janice has some great images in the Victorian and Steam Punk section of her store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=89_206
Why not check them out now - they can be mixed and matched to create something spectacular.  I have coloured Chastity with Copics and used some pipe and cog dies to get into the theme.  I hope my card inspires you to take a look in the store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/
Thank you for joining me today and I will see you at our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/ with your creations.  We may be on the DT Team but your work inspires us too! Have a great day creating!

SCRAPPER'S DELIGHTS THRIFTY THURSDAY AND APRIL 2017 FREEBIE CHALLENGE

Rainy Days Digi 1 - what a great freebie especially with the weather we are having in New South Wales, Australia.  Boy, has it been wet and sad for some families too, lives have been lost in some very bad conditions, and young lives too, families torn apart with grief.  But onto a happier note, this digi is available here https://www.facebook.com/groups/376140345820051/.  Why not join our group and get into the swing of our progressive challenge each month, it is a lot of fun and there are always a great range of bargains to be had at the store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/.
Our optional twist for this month was to NOT make a square or rectangle card.  Well I decided to get out one of my WeRMemoryKeepers Lucky 8 punches.  Tools certainly take up a great deal of your stash, just when you think you might be able to whittle away at it, you remember the many tools you have bought over the years,  I cut the doily in half and used that as my base card.  I could not decide between the two sentiments so I used both.  The yellow doily you see peeking out of the bottom of the flowers is supposed to be an umbrella but I think I went overboard with the floral arrangement and the umbrella handle is a toothpick covered with thin wire to make the hook. When I never know what one of my cards can be used for, I always call them inspirational! lol
I hope I have inspired you to go grab Rainy Days Digi 1 and create something beautiful.

I will be entering the following challenges with this card:

Imagine That Digistamp March 2017


This month I have used "Frogs in Love" just for a general card to show your love for someone.  This month I have used my prismacolor pencils instead of Copics - needless to say I am still learning how to use them!  Thank you Imagine That Digistamp for this digi set.

Aussie Digital Artists Open Challenge #2


For this month's challenge, I have decided to showcase a digital stamp from Ericraft, this month's challenge sponsor.  This stamp is called "Merry Cocky".  I love using Aussie stamps as our Christmas is in the summer season - no snow for us Aussies!  I have also used some chipboard from Scrapmatts, another Australian company.  The holly sprig I coloured with Copics but the bauble was already in that shade.

From the Heart Stamps - Free Stamp of the Month March 2017

This month's free stamp is Lucky Lil Birdie.  She is so cute and great for St Patrick's Day cards (if you celebrate the day) or for any card where you want to wish the recipient Good Luck.  Thank you From the Heart Stamps,  for another cutie freebie!

The Outlawz March 2017 Progressive Challenge


This month we have a beautiful image "Spring Window" from Beccy's Place. From a fellow Australian I thank you Beccy for this digi.  When I saw the window, I thought straightaway I must use bricks as a background and I could not resist adding a few cats, my favourite pet.  Thank you for looking at my card and don't forget to check out Beccy's Place.  She has some lovely digital stamps and lots of technique tutorials on her website.
