Aurora Wings Challenge - Heartfelt



This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges we are being.....


I have made a Thank You card using the gorgeous Aurora Wings Windswept image. I digitally paper pieced her kimono before adding some shading for definition. I then printed out the same pattern out on a  larger scale to use as my background. I love the way this connects the image to the rest of the card.

The sentiment is a cuttlebug die.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Halloween or Fall In La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are celebrating Fall and/or Halloween. Since it's Spring here in Australia and my garden is coming to life I felt doing a Fall card wasn't quite right - besides - I have been wanting to colour up this cutie for a while ;) She's not too gruesome with the fun colours I ended up using...

All Shapes and Sizes in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with all sorts of shapes and sizes. I decided to make a Christmas tag with lots of sparkle. Marci's dress has been covered with clear Wink of Stella giving it a really gorgeous soft sparkle IRL. I've paired her with 3 of my favourite La-La Land Crafts dies :)

Hidden Extra in La-La Land




OOPS - forgot I hadn't scheduled this - I just got home from a holiday overseas and have been suffering a bit from jet lag so apologies for the tardiness.

This week in La-La Land we are playing with "Hidden Extras". I decided to try my hand at a Peek-a-boo card using Norma's FABULOUS tutorial HERE. I'm really lucky to have the card used in this tutorial in my possession and it's just AMAZING IRL.

I digitally paper pieced the 2 Marci's kimonos before colouring the rest. I have done a tutorial on how to do this HERE.

I used my Cameo to create my Fall moon shaped card. The main piece is cut twice and then hinged on the back piece. I have also taken off a slice at the bottom of the card to make sure it stands up.

Aurora Wings Challenge - A Touch of Darkness


There's a new monthly challenge starting over at Aurora Wings Challenges and it's......


I've used the STUNNING Secret Kiss (Dark Goth Mermaid with Skull) and printed her out onto some Bearly Mine Designs digital paper before colouring her in. I had meant to colour her up a little darker but some days my copics seem to have a mind of their own and she ended up in shades of gold and teal. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Using Washi Tape in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with Washi Tape. I used 3 different patterned tapes and stuck them to my card on an angle to create a fun background. A very simple technique but it added a great effect, especially for a boy's card. A die cut sentiment and snowflakes finished off a fairly CAS design.
