Hello Scrappy Friends

This months prize is sponsored by:

prize - $15 Gift Voucher

Sparkle N Sprinkle

We were given a digi image to use for challenge #3, and I can honestly say it is the first time I have used a digi image to create with - I am positive it wont be my last!!

Here is the card I made using Chrissy the Christmas Sprite Fairy:

I used a stencil and Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle texture paste for the background.  Once dry, I coloured it with Prima Metallic Accents.  I added a doily under the image.  I used some Kindy Glitz to add sparkle to the dots on the image background, as well as some Liquid Pearls around the hem and sleeves of the dress to add more texture.

Head on over to the blog to see what my fellow DT members created - you wont be disappointed.

You have until the last Tuesday in October (24th) to play along with us.

Thanks for dropping by today

Scrap Plezier Reveal

Hello Scrappy Firends

I am up on the Scrap Plezier blog today with two Fathers Day cards I made with Kaisercraft Factory 42 Collection.  It was Fathers Day in Australia on Sunday Sept 3, and I made a pledge to myself that I would make the Fathers Day cards this year.

Now not being much of a card maker, I procrastinated right to the very day – only finishing the cards on the morning of Fathers Day.
I used the Factory 42 collection from Kaisercraft – perfect for Fathers Day cards, or any male card or layout.  For one card I took a piece of the Factory 42 patterned paper – Gears and Cogs and used it as the background piece.  I then took a Kaisercraft cogs stencil and inked it with Brown ink.  I then took a chipboard cog sheet and placed it over the stencilled background.  On top of that I placed some cogs from the Factory 42 diecuts, and the Happy Fathers Day greeting from a sheet of paper from the 6.5x6.5 paper pad.  I finished off with some large brads from a really old Kaiser Christmas collection.

The second card was much simpler.  I took a couple of different patterned papers and layered them on the card front.  I added a thin strip of a third paper, and finished the backgrounk oiff with the taps from the sticker sheet.  I cut the Happy Fathers Day sentiment from the Workshop paper and added some sparkle with dots of Ranger Distress Stickles in Brushed Corduroy.  I finished the card off with some Kaisercraft wooden cogs, inked lightly in brown ink.

I trust my cards show how easy they are to make with a collection.

Scrap Plezier Reveal

Hello Scrappy Friends

It is reveal day at Scrap Plezier and I am up today!!

I love Kaisercraft, and I think that the Sage and Grace Collection is one of my all time favourites – so I chose that collection for this layout.  

Simple layers, under a couple of photos of my husband taken on our  extra long weekend trip to Sydney in May.   Add a doily, some stickers and diecuts for the Sage and Grace Collection, use a black Sharpie paint pen to out line all the layers and stickers, and there you have a simple layout that looks amazing (well, I think it does, lol).

And some closeups:

The photos do not do justice to the gorgeous colour palette of this collection.

Your thoughts??

Scrap Plezier Moodboard Reveal

Hello Scrappy Friends

It is reveal day at Scrap Plezier for the fabulously yummy September moodboard:

I told you it was yummy!!

And here is my inspiration from the board:

I went with the pinks and blues, quote, flowers and the numbers.

Some closeups:

I used a stencil and texture paste across the middle of the layout, then when that was dried, I applied Prima Metallic Accents Semi Watercolour, in pink and blue over the stencilled area.  I then stamped using black dye ink, and then splattered some of the pink and blue watercolour.  I also coloured the white Kaisercraft flowers with the same watercolours.  Using Maja Designs papers, I layered my photo, added the quote in tiny alphas, and finished with some Cocoa Vanilla Wild At Heart Sparkle Enamel Dots.

Thanks for stopping by today - I really think you should take the Scrap Plezier Moodboard challenge.
