Christmas Candle

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to share a project I made for the new challenge on the Ching Chou Kuik Challenge Blog. I love playing along with the amazing gals on the blog DT.  The theme this month is 'Christmas' (which really isn't very far off now, right?).  For my project I am using the beautiful image Christmas Candle.  She's so lovely, isn't she?  You can find her and lots of other digis which would be perfect for this challenge over in the Ching Chou Kuik Etsy Shop.  


The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & R11; hair - BV20, BV23, BV25 & BV29; dress - R32, R35, R37 & R39; flowers - R24 & R27; leaves - G21, YG93 & YG97.  The image is printed on x-press paper.  I added white and gold frantage around the image. 

For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper from Authentique, lace, ribbon, brads and berrries from Wild Orchid.  I'm so excited that I've got a few holiday cards ready!  Please join us over on the Ching CHou Kuik Challenge Blog and share your Christmas themes project with us.  The DT has beautiful projects there to inspire you as well.  Have an awesome day!

Wicked Musing

Good morning everyone!  We have a special Mini Challenge this week over in the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group!  It's going to be loads of fun!  The them is 'Spooky' - you can use any Ching Chou Kuik digi, and you can find tons of beautiful ones in her etsy shop.  For my DT project I made an altered chalkboard, which I made into a Halloween sign using Wicked Musing.  I hope you find her spooky! 


The Copics I used are: skin - Yg17, YG21, YG23 & YG25; dress/hat - R35, R37, R39, BV02, BV04 & BV13; door - E33, E35, E37, E57 & E59; bricks - E13, E15, E17 & E19; monkey - C1, C3, C5, C7, B91, B93, B95 & B97. The image is printed on x-press paper.

Here is a closer look at the image:

\

Another look at it as it hangs:


For this project, I bought a chalkboard from Michael's, and first sprayed it with different glimmer mist & American Crafts sprays.  I did end up covering most of it, but there is a cool marbles effect on the parts you can see (the colors are dark and muted).  I used paper from My Mind's Eye (Blackbird), and Graphic 45 (Time to Flourish) to cover most of the chalkboard.  I used an edge distresser on the edges of the image and all of the papers.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid, and the 'Spooktacular' sticker is from Paper House.  I took out the black ribbon it came with and used my own ribbon in various colors.  I do love this one!  I honestly think it's my most favorite project I've made to date.

We would love for you to join the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group if you haven't already.  There is always a challenge (or 2) going on, and you'll see the latest releases.  Our wonderful DT is often sharing projects for your inspiration as well.  We would love to see what you make with Ching Chou Kuik's amazing digis!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have an awesome day.

Princess Rory

Happy Sunday!  How has your weekend been so far? Mine has been busy and loud - my youngest had a birthday party and some of his friends stayed for a sleepover, so I need a day of rest today, lol.  First, I want to share my card for the new challenge on the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. Our theme for this challenge is 'Once Upon a Dream'.  We want to see your fairytale projects!  For my card I used the sweet Princess Rory..  You can find her and tons of other gorgeous digis in the Lacy Sunshine Stamp Store.  Do you think my card is fit for a princess?


The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & R11; hair - E13, E15, E17 & E19; dress - RV19, RV52 & RV55; crown - Y21, Y26, Y28 and various Wink of Stella glitter markers.  The image is printed on x-press paper.

Isn't she lovely?


I wanted to do something happy and bright for the card, so I used Bazzill cardstock, KaiserCraft paper and sticker (Fiesta), ribbon, gold crown pin, LaLa Land die and Wild Orchid flowers.  I have a couple of young nieces that might like this one.  Perhaps I should make another and send one to each. I invite you to head on over to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog, check out the amazing projects out DT has made for your inspiration, and to play along with our challenge! 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate it more than you know!

Gina Medusa

Hello everyone!  I hope your day is off to a good start!  It is my turn to host the MoonFlower Blog, and I am sharing a card I made using the fabulous image Gina Medusa.  I had so much fun with her!  I played around with different colors, and ended up coloring her skin using Copics from the Warm Grey family.  What do you think?


The Copics I used are: skin - W00, W1, W3, W5 & E93; snakes - W00, W1, W3, W5, YG21 & YG23; dress - BV000, BV02, BV04, BV08, YG17, YG21 & YG23.  The image is printed on x-press paper.  I used Pebbles, Inc. chalk around the image - yellow to create a 'glow' around her, with grey around that. 

How cool is this digi? 


For the card I used Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug paper, Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon, sticker from The Paper House and swirly die.  I'm pleased at how 'wicked' she looks.  We'd love you to visit the MoonFlower Blog to see inspiration from all of the Design Team, as well as new releases.  There is also a MoonFlower Facebook Group where you will find monthly challenges, find out about new releases, and be able to share your projects using MoonFlower digis.

Paityn

Good morning everyone!  It's a new week, and a new challenge over on the Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.  As always, our theme is 'Anything Goes', and this week we are sponsored by Oddball Art Company.  I was so excited when I saw they were the sponsor, as this was my first time using one of their images.

Autumn's Here

Good afternoon everyone!  I'm hopping on here real quick to share a new card with you.  I've made a DT inspiration piece for the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group for this week, using the gorgeous digi called Autumns Here. I love her!  Though I have to admit, it doesn't all feel like autumn is here in Arizona.  We are expected to hit 102 degrees tomorrow! Yikes!  Soon enough we'll be enjoying our mild winter, right?  Back to mu card...I hope you like her:


The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & R11; hair - E08, E19, YR14 & YR18; dress - R000, R00, R01, R02 & R08; flowers - Y17, Y21, Y38, YR14, YR18, E47 & E49; leaves - G85, G99 & G12; wings - E40, E42, E43, R00, R01 and Wink of Stella (clear).  I sprinkled some frantage around the image. 

I love the effect of the Wink of Stella on the leaves, but it is so hard to capture in pictures.  I tried my best: 



For my card I used Bazzill cardstock, Graphic 45 paper, flowers from my stash, Wild Orchid leaves, lace, ribbon, and Spellbinder die.   If you haven't already done so, I invite you to join the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group and check out her amazing images, and share your projects using them!  Thanks for stopping by.

Monster Mash!

Halloween will soon be upon us, and over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog we are celebrating by having a 'Monster Mash' themed challenge.  We want to see your spooky, scary, cute or fun (or any/all combinations of that) projects! You can find tons of images in the Lacy Sunshine Digi Shop which would be just perfect! For my project I am using Eleanor & Pickles Ve Vant Candy!  Instead of making a card like I usually do, I decided to make an altered printers tray.  I would love to know what you think!


The Copics I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & R11; hair - V09, V12 & V15; dress - YG17, YG21, YG23 & YG25; pumpkin - YR65 & YR68; frog - YG17, YG21, YG23 & YG25; capes - BV20, BV23, BV25 & BV29.  The image is printed on x-press paper. 

How cute are they? 


To decorate the printer's tray, I used paper from WeR, stickers from Paper House Productions and Recollections,  and ribbon. The chipboard embellishments I have had for ages, and do not know who they are from. 


I used a lot of foam adhesive to add dimension inside the different sections.  I also rolled some paper (see below), and stacked strips of paper mounted with foam adhesive in the upper corner.


I had so much fun with this one!  It's now part of my Halloween decorations inside my home. Please help us celebrate Halloween by heading over to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog and joining our 'Monster Mash' challenge. The DT has awesome projects to inspire you!

Moonflower Birthday Blog Hop!

It’s birthday time!!  Moonflower is a whole year old already and we’re blog hopping to celebrate!
It’s been an amazing year, with many incredible images drawn by Andreia, and brought to life by the very talented design team, and so we decided it would be fun to showcase some of them with a birthday blog hop.




Blogging is all about networking and sharing our love of crafts so we’d love you to play along, leave a little love on each blog you hop to and if you like what you see hit the ‘follow’ button, and we can follow you in return of course! The winners will be announced on the blogs so you don’t want to miss out as it could be you!


We are pleased to be sponsored by Donna Marie for this hop. She is an amazing colourist and has written a fabulous ebook with many hints and tips about colouring. One lucky hopper will win a copy of her book, plus 2 MoonFlower digi stamps of their choosing, and a 25% discount voucher for the store. Check out her Facebook page to see her amazing work.

Animals!

Hello all!  It is time to kick off a new challenge on the Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge Blog!  Our new theme for you is 'Animals', and we are sponsored by DeeDee's Digis.  They have an excellent selection of stamps, and so many fun animals to choose from.  For my card I am using Leave Me Smiling.  He's such a sweet bear, don't you agree?


The Copics I used are: bear - E13, E15 & E18; leaves - YG93, YG95, YG97, E37, YR24, YR31, E19, YR14 & YR18; rake - G85, G99, E53, E57, E59 & E35.  The image is printed on x-press paper. I don't have much experience coloring animals, so I hope I did ok!

Here is a closer look at this adorable bear:


For the card I used Bazzill cardstock. Authentique paper, ribbon and Dear Lizzy die.  I used the leaf die to cut colored leaves meant to mimic the ones in the image. What animal will you color?  To check out the details, and to see the beautiful projects the other DT has made, please head over to Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge Blog. Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day.
