Fireworks Card - For Stampin for the Weekend

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a good week!
Today I would like to show you my DT card for Stampin for the Weekend.
The original theme for this week’s challenge was Halloween/Fireworks, but because the sponsors didn’t have any firework themed digis, the theme got changed to:
Fall/Halloween Project
We are kindly sponsored by KLM Digi Designs
Since my family and I don’t celebrate Halloween, I decided to make a fireworks card.

I used paper with dots and stars, so that it looks like fireworks.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

I used a digital stamp from Di’s Digi Downloads. On some of the fireworks of the image I stuck glittered stars
I colored the image with the following Promarkers:
Terracotta and Spice - for the bear’s skin
Appel - for the bear’s scarf and the mouse’s shirt and for some of the fireworks 
Sky Blue and Cyan - for the big bear’s shirt and little bear’s pants and gloves and for some of the fireworks
Apricot - for the big bear’s pants 
Berry Red - for the big bears shoes and the little bears hat and shirt and for some of the fireworks 
Forest Green and Appel - for the grass
Yellow - for some of the fireworks

 I punched out some green, yellow, blue and red stars from card-stock, then I glazed it with “Royal Coat Dimensional Magic” and then glittered it with different color glitters.

I stuck three light blue gems on the top left and bottom right corners of the card.
Please hop over to Stampin for the Weekend and take a look at the DT creations and take part with your Fall/Halloween Card.
I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 
Ooh La La Creations  - nothing floral
Craftalicious - anything goes
Gingerloft  - glitter or bling
One Stitch At A Time - use digi stamps / paper
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Sparkle and shine

Wishing you all a blessed weekend

Christmas Card - For My Blog Anniversary Challenge

Hello everyone!
I would like to show you my Christmas card I made for my blog anniversary challenge.
For more information click here.

I Have a special way of opening the card.

You untie the bow to open the card.

I used one of the new Whiff Of Joy stamps called ‘Batty Mouse with Candycane”
I coloured her with the following Promarkers:
Berry Red - for her hat 
Coral, Rose Pink and the Blender - for her ears 
Coral and Spice - for her skin 
Pastel Yellow - for her shirt 
Sky Blue - for the ribbon around her wast
Maroon - for her skirt 
 Berry Red and Appel (green) - for the Candy cane 
Cool Grey - for all around the stamp.
Then I took a white gel Pen and made lines to give it a three dimensional look.

I bought a christmas embellishment, took it apart and made my own christmas embellishment.

I glazed cardboard christmas leafs with “Royal Coat Dimensional Magic”, then gave it a layer of green glitter and then stuck three red gems on each one.
I also took part in a few other challenges with this card:
2 Sisters  - animal fun
Our Daily Bread Designs - use leaves
Alphabet - x for xmas
Anything Goes - christmas
Craftalicious  Anything Goes!
I hope you can be part of my challenge!

Fall Card for Stampin for the Weekend

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good week.
It is Friday and time for a new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend!
And the theme is: 
Use the colours of autumn to inspire you!
Our Sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp, who is offering a $25 voucher to the lucky winner
So here is my card:

I just love the gems in the bottom left corner.

I coloured her with the following Promarkers:
Sandston – for Willow’s hair 
Blush and Dusky Pink – for her skin 
Henna – for the top and bottom parts of her dress
Yellow – for her hat, apron and shoes
Rose pink for the pocket on her apron 
I mixed Berry Red and Henna - for the dress colour 
Cool Grey – for a shadow around the stamp.

I made a corner out of brown cardstock and then cut out an owl and stuck it on top of the corner.

That is all for now.
Please hop over to Stampin for the Weekend and check out the lovely work from the DT’s.
Hope you can take part in our challenge.
