CC Designs Favourite

WooHoo!  I'm on the team at CC Designs for another term!

I was so excited to be asked to stay on.  It's a wonderful team and a fabulous company with SO many gorgeous stamps to use :)

Lucky me!!!

I have been a fan of CC Designs for a long time now.  
I think the first stamp I bought when I got my copics was this cutie.  I just loved it and knew my girls would too.  I remember trying and trying to get her hair right and being so pleased with how it turned out. That was about 2 and a half years ago now and (luckily) I can see that I have improved but I still love this card.



The new CC Design Team has been given the chance to pick their favourite stamp and give one away to someone who comments on their blog.

It was very hard to choose a favourite, there are just so many adorable ones!
But I think I'll have to go with this Roberto's image called Kisses.



It's great to be able to give a prize to one of my readers, so if you love this stamp as much as I do, please leave me a comment.  I will pick a winner on Monday.

Thanks for dropping by today

Doodle Dragon Hop

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.

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

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

Thanks for dropping by today :)

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.

cc designs, roberto's, Kisses, mini alpha and numbers die

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 :
YG 0000, 03, 11, 13, 95
E 000, 00, 21, 50, 53, 55
R 24, 29, 30, 81, 83
W 00, 1, 3
BG 0000, 72
BV 0000
RV 0000, 63

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!
I've got everything crossed!  
Wish me luck and thanks for dropping by today ;)
