Doodle Dragon Hop

Doodledragon_title4
Oh yeah! We have some extra cuteness joining the C.C. Designs family of Illustrators. I was tickled pink when Dustin contacted me to design stamps for us. I have always loved his incredibly adorable images, and now they are mine, muwahahaha!
The new DT is joining us in a Doodle Dragon Blog Hop. Wait until you see what they have done with the images, your mind will be blown.
To introduce Doodle Dragon we are having a blog hop. 3 of the blogs on the hop are giving away 2 stamps each. But we are not going to tell you who! Leave some love to all the players and on Monday December 1st we will announce the winners. 


I decided to use this cute stamp called Monster Sweets.  He's adorable isn't he!
My youngest daughter always has lots of Birthday parties to attend so I thought I'd make a card to have ready to use whether the next one is for a boy or a girl.


Ingredients :
Stamps : Monster Sweets, Great Birthday Greetings
Card : x-press it, pool party, gumball, black, Free Spirit (Prima)
Ink : memento black, pool party

Candy Cane Penguin

It's time for another challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the theme this month is SNOW.

I decided to use a very cute stamp by High Hopes called Candy Cane Penguin.

high hopes, candy cane penguin

The sentiment is by High Hopes too and is called Winter Hi!

I coloured it with my copics (of course).  And after I coloured the BG sky I used the blender pen to make various sized dots for snow.  It's the first time I've tried that and I was happy with how it turned out.

I added a beautiful snowflake charm to the card and called this quick and simple snowy card done :)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Candy Cane PenguinWinter Hi!
Card : x-press it, soft sky, Frosted Lace (wild rose studio)
Ink : memento black, antique linen distress ink
Other : double scallop doily die, snowflake charm, copics

Layla Kisses

We're reviewing the new Roberto's stamps on the CC Designs Blog today.
And I love this image called Kisses so much that I decided to use it again :)

It just looks so much like my Granddaughter Layla and my cat Indie that I thought I might colour it again and put it in a shadowbox frame for her.  I think it will make a lovely Christmas decoration for her room.  She could bring it out each year and perhaps add things to it too by placing little ornaments she makes, photos or wish lists inside.

I decided to use the CC Designs Mini Alpha and Numbers Die to add her name to the image and it looks pretty cute, I'm lucky she has such a symmetrical name :)
The bells and Christmas tree are just store bought decorations but I wanted to put something else handmade by me inside.  So I also diecut some stars from felt and used some metallic gold embroidery thread to sew a little padded star.  I'm not the best needlewoman but it looks pretty and hopefully she'll know it was made by her Grandma with lots of love :)

It's wonderful to be able to use stamps to make beautiful handmade gifts as well as cards isn't it? :)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Kisses
Card : x-press it, brushed gold
Ink ; memento black
Other : Mini alpha and numbers die, star die, copics

Copics used :

Please take a look at the CC Designs blog to see some wonderful inspiration by the Design Team.

There is a Design Team Call at CC Designs at the moment. It's a great company, with gorgeous products and wonderful people to work with.  I really hope I get the chance to continue creating there!

Mouse With Poinsettia

It's time for another challenge at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and this month the theme is Animals.  I got to choose the theme this time and I decided on it because I love cute animal stamps, especially for Christmas cards!  An animal doesn't have to be the main feature of the card, but one does have to be on there somewhere :)

I decided to use this super cute stamp from Wild Rose Studio called Mouse With Poinsettia.

The pretty paper is from a Wild Rose Studio pack called Frosted Lace.  There are none of your typical red and green papers in this pack, but instead, pretty pinks and blues.  So I decided to colour a pink poinsettia to match.  The ornament dies are from Wild Rose Studio too!  I just cut these two off the Row of Baubles die, glued some vellum on the back and coloured the vellum from behind.  It is a gorgeous die and very versatile as you can use them individually like I did, or as they come in a row.

I also used a new sentiment stamp from CC Designs.  It's from a fun set called Snarky Christmas and it's available to pre-order now.  I also used a pink button and some white web ribbon.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Mouse With PoinsettiaSnarky Christmas
Card ; x-press it, baja, Frosted Lace
Ink : memento black
Other : Row of Baubles die,  pink buttonwhite web ribbon, copics

Copics Used :

Kisses

It's Day 2 of the sneak peek at the new releases at CC Designs.
Today the Design Team are showcasing images by Roberto's.
When I first saw this stamp I actually did a little squeal of delight!  Actually it was probably quite a big squeal! :)
It's called Kisses and this little girl is just so much like my Granddaughter Layla.  And it is exactly how our cat Indie looks when he's trying to cope with her cuddles and kisses too!
I just love this image SO MUCH!
