TGIF Colour Challenge #84 - Santa's Sleigh

Welcome to a very challenging challenge from TGIF Blog!! I honestly found this colour challenge difficult. Old Olive is not a colour I like:


Ok honestly, I actually HATE it with a passion. I almost cried when I saw the colours in the photo. But I grabbed the bull by the horns and had a go. What do you think?

This isn't one of my best creations and it's probably not one of my worse either. And you know what, that's ok. Sometimes, things don't go to plan or how we had hoped. But it's just about having a go and giving something different a try.

Can I now stay that I like Old Olive a bit... No and I won't be using it again anytime soon either, but I'm ok with that!!

Well that's it today. Make sure you check out the other DT's entries and I hope you join us this week too. I'm sure your creations will be amazing.

Happy Crafting,
Chlo

JAI Sketch Challenge #339 - Dragonfly Dreams

Happy Friday guys and welcome to another challenge with the Just Add Ink team.

http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com/2016/12/just-add-ink-339sketch.html
 This week we have a a fantastic sketch challenge that I really enjoyed. I also decided it was time to put the Christmas stamps away for a bit and crack open some new goodies. Here is this weeks sketch:

And for my card this week I went with the brand new stamp set called Dragonfly Dreams. This gorgeous set will be available in January in the new Occasions Catalogue.

I'm picking it now, that this set will be one of the most popular stamps of the catty. Oh and I forgot to mention, that it also has matching framelits. Winning!!

Now my inspiration for the card is actually from an upcoming birthday, that one of my dear friends if having soon. Her favourite colour is purple and she adores dragonflies.

I inked up my dragonfly with Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant and Night of Navy. The second dragonfly is stamped on a window sheet with Stazon. Both are cut out with a matching framelit and glued together, just in the body, with a glue dot.

Ok so now it's over to you guys. Pop over to the JAI blog and check out all the other design team's cards. Geeze they are a talented bunch! And please find some time this week to take part. I would love to see what you come up with.

Happy Crafting,
Chlo

ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop - A Day at the Beach

Hi guys and welcome to another fantastic blog hop with the ESAD girls. Wow, I've done a few of these now and always have such a blast. I love to hop around with you all and check out all the talented creations, and I know this time will be know different.

Whether you are a regular visitor or have just arrived from the super amazing Kelly Kent, I just want to say Hey and I hope you like what I have to share with you today.

This Holiday Catalogue really has been awesome and there is so much that I love from it, and this set is no different. The only thing is, that this is my first play with it!?!? I know shocking lol.

I had this idea to pair the sentiment from our Tin of Tags stamps with the Day at the Beach set. I thought it would be a fun way to play on the sentiment Warm Wishes!!

My little black and gold banners are actually pieces of washi tape that I stuck on itself and then snipped out the flagged ends.

Now it's time for you to carry on hopping over to Jackie Noble's blog and check out her beautiful work!!

Have a fantastic week and Happy Crafting,
Chlo

TGIF #82 Inspiration Challenge - Holly Berry Happieness

Welcome back to another challenge from the awesome group from TGIF. Today we do have a great inspiration photo for you all, which did have me a little stumped at first.

http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/2016/11/tgifc82.html
Now you have to remember here in Australia we are actually in spring and heading towards summer so the autumn leaves inspiration photo did get me thinking. So i looked at all my stamp set wondering what leaves did I have when I suddenly noticed the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set. Holly leaves would be perfect!!

Now, I'm not sure the card turned at as well as I had pictured, as I think black embossing would have really made the images pop, but I do kinda like the white. Maybe if I have some time tonight, I'll try the card again with black embossing and see whether it does make a difference.

After embossing all the images I used my aqau painter to colour them. This is such a great technique and you don't even really have to be any good at colouing as the embossed lines keep the colour from bleeding.

I of course couldn't resist using the stitched framelits again for this card. Those dies really are amazing. The sentiment came from the Tin of Tag set, which goes to show, is not just for tags!!

Well that's it for me today. Please find some time to pop over to the TGIF blog and take a peek at what the other DT's have been up to. I know you will love all their designs too!!

Oh and make sure you check in with me again on Sunday as I have a big news to share with you all. Starting on Monday we have a HUGE Online Extravaganza. Lot's of goodies with up to 40% off. I will put up the list on Sunday, so you can have your order ready to place first thing Monday morning. Take it from me, I know things will sell out very fast!!

Happy Crafting,
Chlo
