Happy halloween

these are my cards for the Fairy and Unicorn October Challenge, also the first Halloween cards I've ever made!

The first one is made using the Skellie Gossip stamp from IkesArt which I mounted on to black card and then added cobwebs to the corners. I created the background and sentiment using Craft Artist and some Halloween digikits which I then layered on to the same card, then added the skeleton image using some foam pads.

The second one is also from IkesArt and is called Trick or Treat. For this one I made my first Z fold card. I coloured the image using Promarkers in Orange, Terracotta, Gold, Almond and Black, plus Spectrum Noir CG3 Green. I cut the image with an oval die and layered on to black card. I decorated the Z fold piece with orange card which I'd embossed with a dotty embossing folder and layered it on to black card. I used green card to match the dress for the top panel. To finish it off I drew a cobweb and added a Trick or Treat sentiment and a pumpkin.

I hope you like the cards, please join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.

Another anniversary card

this is an anniversary card made for my bother and sister-in-law.

I basically used two 8 x 8 cards with the backs glued together, I then scored the two fronts down the middle to create a folded back gate fold card.

To decorate the inside I had chosen a page from the Hunkydory Little Book of Anniversaries which I layered on to silver mirri and then I created a mat of pink patterned paper to co-ordinate with the image. 

On the two front panels I matted and layered the same pink patterned paper on to silver mirri to create two panels. I decorated the panels with the Tonic Happy Anniversary sentiment, Affections heart and initials cut using the Tonic Clarice alphabet, all cut from deep pink card and silver mirri layered together.

Thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.

Have a jolly, trolly Christmas!

Hello there,
here's my DT card for September's Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog, it's also my first Christmas card of the year! Better get a move on with the rest lol.

The troll image is a Bugaboo digital stamp which I've coloured using my Spectrum Noir alcohol pens: TB1, 2, 3, 4 and 6; BG1, 2 and 3; and CR8. The image is layered on to some freebie snowflake paper, the 8 x 8 card base has a dark blue mat and some Tonic blue on white snowflake paper. The sentiment is a freebie stamp done in Memento marine blue on white, then layered on to a dark blue mat. Both were cut using the Tonic oval die. I finished it off with a red ribbon and bow, plus red pearls added to the image and the earrings, and added some Glamour Dust to the darker highlights in the hair.

I'm not sure who I'll give it to at Christmas but I hope they will like it, and that you do too. If you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it, and please join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.
