Another set of ATC's

Hi everyone! Here is another set of ATC's made for a swap over on A Little Piece of Me ATC Swap blog. Fairies is the theme this month.
For the backgrounds I put some inks down onto my glass mat, then spritzed with water, Pressed my card onto this - I did each ATC separately and each one came out different.
I then stamped the leaves, grasses, toadstools and stars using distress inks. Stamped the sentiments.
I stamped the fairies onto white card, coloured in, cut out then adhered to the ATC's.
All fairies need glitter so added some stickles glitter - especially on the wings. Added some Rub'n'Buff around the edges.
Hope you like my fairy ATC's.
Thanks for stopping by.

First DT post for Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! This is my first post for Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog. It is a monthly challenge starting on the first Saturday of every month at 9am & ends on the 28th at 8pm.
This month's sponsor is :

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

I chose the lovely digi image Daisy Days to work with.
I printed the image onto white card, then onto various papers - patterned & plain, to do paper piecing.
Carefully cut out the pieces I wanted to paper piece - dungarees, shoes, hat & flowers.
Coloured the rest of the image using Inktense pencils.
Adhered all the pieces onto the image
Used my GC to cut a fancy border. Inked around the edges with DI.
Matted onto pink, then green card & attached to my card.
Stamped a sentiment onto white card & matted onto green card, added some Stickles glitter.

DT post for Creative Artiste Challenge

Hi everyone - it's a new month so that means there must be a new challenge over on Creative Artiste Challenge Blog. The theme this month is anything goes.
The sponsor this month is:

The image I used was Fruity Patootie.

I decided to try something different this month. I printed the image onto fabric using Freezer paper - I love this but haven't tried it for anything freezer related!
Once this was done I coloured it using my Inktense pencils. Used some stencils for the background.
To make the image stand out I decided to embroider around the edges - I enjoyed doing this. I was going to try some free motion embroidery on my machine but thought I might spoil the image.
Once the sewing was done decided it needed a bit of bling so added some beads.
I found a notebook that I thought was in need of a bit of a makeover & thought it would make a good recipe book.
Placed some wadding onto the book, covered this with my image. Covered the inside with a piece of card to cover the 'workings'.
Added some more beads & stamped cocktails, summer & recipes onto small strips of cloth & adhered these to the book.
Don't forget to pop over to Creative Artiste & have a look at the other DT members' projects.


I had printed 2 images out onto the cotton so decided to give the free motion embroidery a go! Here it is - hope you like. I REALLY enjoyed doing this so can imagine I will be having fun with this. The only area not stitched is her face. Hope you can see the stitching in this photo.
Thanks for stopping by.
