Here's a card that I made for Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT "Flowers Galore" challenge. I stamped the uber cool Magnum the cat from Ladybug Crafts Ink, onto watercolour paper and coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches slang gang set. The background floral paper is from Kaiser, fine and sunny paper pad, and the bird die cut is also from Kaiser suga pop collection. I added some paper flowers and a few gems. http://ladybugscraftsinkchallengeblog.blogspot.com.au/

This is the cute High Hopes stamp "Warm Wishes", for the challenge, Banners/Bunting/Flags. I stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers, and then went over the top with Twinkling H2O's. I used a spell binders die, Stampin Up sentiment and some Stampin Up paper. The bunting is from Ruby Rock-It. To finish off I used a couple of gems.

Paper Smooches have a new chance to win some fantastic prizes so I just had to have a go :) the theme is to create 'something fun and cute'. So using the little Paper Smooches monster from Falling for You, and the cute cows from the Paper Smooches set Green Acres, I stamped on shrink plastic and coloured with coloured pencils. I then shrank them down in the oven and turned them into earrings using a couple of beads and findings. I now have wearable Paper Smooches :)

Here is my entry in the Paper Smooches 'Picture Perfect' challenge. It's the first time I've done one of these and I did find it challenging. I ended up recreating the mosaic love heart by punching out squares and then cutting them into triangles. I then used the stethoscope (listening to the heart beat) and warm thoughts saying from the Paper Smooches 'First Aid Kit'. I used the colours that were in the photo to try and tie the whole theme and challenge together.http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com.au/

This is my entry for the Stamp and Create - Love is in the air challenge. I've used a High Hopes stamp called 'Matchmakin' Maynard' I've coloured him with Tim Holtz distress markers on watercolour paper and popped him up on a fun background down load from Crafts U Print. I.ve added a little speech bubble.........I must have a thing for speech bubbles at the moment, as they are popping up in a few of my projects.http://stampandcreateblog.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/february-challenge-love-is-in-air.html

This is my second entry for the Art Impressions 'Pop It Up Challenge'. I've stamped 'Celeste' on water colour paper 3 times and coloured each image 3 times with Tim Holtz distress markers. I've then fussy cut all the layers out and 3D'd her with foam dots for lots of dimension. I've used a Kaiser paper for the background, a chipboard fancy light, and a couple of gems. I'm really happy with how this card turned out.http://artimpressionsstamps.blogspot.com.au/
I just love doing 3D cards so I had to have a goat the Art Impressions 'Pop It Up Challenge'. For this card I have used the ' Girlfriends at the movies' pre printed decoupage sheet. I've used a background paper from a 'Creative' paper pad a movie reel sticker, some gems and lots of foam dots so it really stands out.http://artimpressionsstamps.blogspot.com.au/
I'm having another go at a High Hopes challenge .....'For Someone You Love', I've used the ultra cute 'I heart you monkey' colouring him with Tim Holtz distress markers on watercolour paper. I've also used some Kaiser 'love' paper, some funky bakers twine and I got my cuttlebug out to do an embossed background. I've popped the monkey up for extra dimension and added a speech bubble and a couple of gems.http://highhopesstamps.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/challenge-204-for-someone-you-love.html

Another entry for another challenge, this time I'm entering the Bunny Zoe anything goes challenge. I needed to have stitching and wings on my project. I've used the adorable (Lenny's love me nots) High Hopes stamp coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers using a blender pen on watercolour paper. The papers are from Kaiser. I have machine stitched around the edge of the papers, and hand stitched 2 little crosses in pink on the main image. The little blue bird is popped up in this card. I got the spell binders out again and found a little crochet flower to finish my project off. I'm also entering this card into the One Crazy Stamper Challenge (anything goes).http://www.onecrazystampercom.blogspot.com.au/
I'm loving the challenges I'm finding on line, this is my entry for the January 'Anything Goes' Lili of the Valley challenge. Doing these challenges gives me the chance to use my stash and to practice. The little bunny has been popped up in this card. I've coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers using a blender pen on watercolour paper. I used my fancy ovals spell binders and some Kaiser flowers.
I was lucky enough to win my very first challenge and was asked if I'd like to be a guest designer. The challenge was to use stripes with a High Hopes stamp. I chose 'Leo' and coloured with Tim Holtz distress markers, I really like 3D effects so with Leo I popped up his front feet and head. The striped paper is from Doodlebug
This is my very first challenge, and the card responsible for me starting a blog. I'd been ill, and to take my mind off things I decided to enter a challenge. I love High Hopes stamps so thought I'd give it a go. I've used surf scene Dudley and coloured him with Tim Holtz distress markers using a blender pen on watercolour paper. I've used Kaiser papers and a bit of raffia. The challenge was called 'on a sunny day'.
