SheepSki Designs "Morpheus"


Isn't Morpheus just the cutest.  I decided a Baby card would suit this cutie.  I looked into my stash for an embossing folder, chose some Make It Crafty chipboard and of course my Copics to colour Morpheus and the chipboard.

Ericraft Stamps "Bat Boy"

As inspiration for Halloween I have chosen Bat Boy to work with.  I must admit I am not big on celebrating Halloween - back when my kids were growing up, it was not a big thing in Australia, but I always have some lollies on hand if I get a knock on the door, but that didn't even happen last year.
I chose to make a treat bag and picked up this bag from the cheap shop ages ago and remembered I had just the right size for the image I had printed.  For the background I just used some Halloween papers I had on my computer. I hope you can see my creation OK, for some reason I had terrible trouble trying to save the image with the watermark through Picmonkey and had to try GIMP, which I know less of than Picmonkey.  If you want to check out Ericraft images on Etsy you will find Bat Boy here https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/385636918/digital-stamp-batboy-jpeg-and-png-image?ref=shop_home_active_21.  There is also another couple of digis that might suit your Halloween needs https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/470964523/digital-stamp-3-jacks-300dpi-jpeg-image?ref=shop_home_active_31, https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/472031967/digital-stamp-die-laughing-300dpi-jpeg?ref=shop_home_active_32 or even https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/468298329/digital-stamp-the-brew-300dpi-jpeg-image?ref=shop_home_active_40. Take a look if you want to make some Halloween creations.

Sweet Escape Digis - Music


This is a 13 year old birthday card I made for a friend's niece.  It is hard to know what to choose for that age group, but I knew Sweet Escape would have the perfect image.  Berenice has an Etsy shop and this is the link https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/SweetEscapeDigis?ref=l2-shopheader-name

Outlawz Progressive Challenge - September 2017

Createful Heart Digis & Design "Bouquet of Red Poppies"

Today I have decided to use "Bouquet of Red Poppies digital stamp from Createful Heart Digis & Design for my first go at the Outlawz "Sketch Challenge".  I had just finished colouring it in orange shades (I have to be different from the title) and decided to go looking as to what to do with it, into the Outlawz Challenges vault I went and signed up for the Sketch Challenge.  I really love this layout, so clean and simple.  I have gone with "Make it Crafty" chipboard in the small size, as truth be known I probably did the digital stamp a little big, before I knew what I was going to create with it.  I just love flower stamps and Mary at Createful Heart Digis & Design has some beauties.  I think I might have told you that in a previous post.  You can check out the Etsy store here https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/Createfulheartdigis.  I think I am going to stock up on some more of Zoe's chipboard too. http://www.makeitcrafty.com/chipboard-embellishments.html
