Hugs - Scrappers delight friday freebie

Made a card with the cute friday freebie image from scrappersdelight for the FB Challenge.
I also used the xmas background topper from the shop for the background.
Had to manipulate with photoshop as I wanted the image to be white inside itself but to show the (outside the outline of the person) the background as transparent. Added sentiment onto the background
just the image (not the background) is colored using copics.


Matted the image onto gold paper and then red card. and added some bling.

Bearing gifts - Artbybarb FB challenge

Love the cute image bearing gifts which is the free image we get to play with this month for artbybarb FB challenge.


Immediately when I saw the image I knew I had to use the crafters companion edgeables die . Image is colored with copics, I did not want to use the traditional colors so decided to use pink and purple. But I had to use bling :) so added the mesh rhinestones.

Steampunk - Scrapper Delight

Loved playing for the scrappers delight challenges both at the fb group here and the blog challenge here.

I have used the freebie friday image and colored it with copics after printing it in laser printer on hdigitalill digial cover paper.
The background paper is a free steampunk paper from freepik . I have  used nuvo embossing paste on stencil from stampendous called steampunk clock over the background pattern paper.

A few gear charms and flowers and bit of gold chain for embellishments. Also broke out the mini sewing machine for some stitches and added a bit of embossing with stampendous aged  bronze powder.

Mr and Mrs - Lily of the Valley

I made this wedding card using parchment and image from Lily of the valley.

I have ways to go to master this craft yet. Loving it.


The sentiment was printed on cardstock but I wanted it to look a little bit transparent to merge in so I glazed it with glycerine and then added it to the card. On the whole not bad.

Joy - ArtbyMiran October Challenge

For the Art by Miran October FB Challenge I made a block card with the lovely  image.
I cut the card base by using scoring board but I also made a cricut design space file in case you want to use that. You can find the link here - https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/46769088 and also under the main menu tab under the respective tab.



I have used copics to color the image. The JOY is die cut using couture die.
Though in the file I have used Arial black so that everyone can access it. You can of course customise it.

Sasayaki October FB Challege - First Half

This is a card I made with the Sasayaki Freebie image for October first half FB Challenge


The embossing folders are from Anna Griffin Summer and Fall. The die cut is cottage cutz. Since all the bits are so tiny I cut them with cardstock and colored them with copics and assembled and glued them instead of cutting each tiny bit in color multiple times as it is a single die.
The image is also colored using copics.
