SheepSki Designs July 2024 Blog Challenge

  Welcome to our July Blog Challenge #88 Anything Goes. I used the "Sunflower Border" image to make my card this month. I have used a white cardstock base and the background is a digital watercolour blue wash from my stash (ctrlARTcanc).  I printed two copies of the sunflower border, one over the top of the background and one extra on white cardstock.  I chose some of the sunflowers and leaves and mounted them with double sided tape.  I have used pencils for colouring.

SheepSki Designs June 2024 Blog Challenge

 Welcome to our June Blog Challenge #87 Anything Goes. I used "It's a Spring Thing" image to make my card this month. This digi can be found here. Its a Spring Thing Image No 282 - Etsy Australia.



My card base is white and then I matted the scene with Stampin' Up Bubble Bath A4 cardstock. I printed a Make it Crafty digi for the background which also had the sentiment on it and then placed "It's a Spring Thing over that and of course printed another copy of it so I could raise the gnome and swing on the card.  I miss Make it Crafty and think of Zoe often.  I am sure Andrea does too!

The flip of my coin gave me the following:  Flip 1 Square card; Flip 2 coloured cardstock; Flip 3 Use ribbon;  Flip 4 Die cut elements and Flip 5 Flowers. I have used the.freebie for May, the gorgeous sweetpeas.

Here is my design.

Morgan's Artworld May Blog Challenge

 Welcome to our May "Anything Goes" #76 Blog Challenge for 2024.

This month I am creating with "Masai". I have used Pinecone ink around the edges of the papers and cardstock.  I accentuated the Masai by using a second coloured image with pencils and mounted him with foam tape.  The background of the lion I shaded with some old eye shadow.  If you don't use makeup, as I can't be bothered, it comes in handy for crafting.

All Dressed Up.

 The theme over at the All Dressed Up Facebook challenge is "Floral".  This is my card featuring "Hedgehog Flower".  I have also used a background paper from All Dressed Up Pink Papers range but maybe the papers are discontinued now, maybe Andrea or Wendy can answer that.

Di's Digis Blog Challenge

 The Scraps and Stash Challenge is on at Di's Digis Blog. It's a perfect challenge for me, I have heaps of both.

I have made a Christmas card.

Scraps and Stash products - shimmer cardstock, a background printed on photo paper that I was never really happy with, and doily and blue gemstones I have probably had from when I first started Scrapping and Cardmaking. Oh, and the sentiment was from my container which holds already printed and leftover sentiments.

My image is "Carol Crew BW"

Beccy's Place April Blog Challenge

 This month over at Beccy's Place the challenge is use an item that represents your neighbourhood, city, state or country.

Well, I could not go past some gorgeous Australian flowers, the Waratah.  Unfortunately, again I have picked my Beccy's Place images from my computer folder but forgot to check if it is still available.  I am hopeless, I need to settle down and look at that first.  As I said Waratah set is retired and I have done it again.  Next time I will pick from my folder and then check the shop, sorry Bec.



I have used white cardstock base and a embossed background of leaves.  Then I grabbed a portion of serviette I bought from Scrapbookingncraft and covered a piece of white cardstock and put a piece of red paper behind it, a leaf die and some dried flowers to add to my waratahs coloured in pencil.

The Outlawz April Progressive Challenge

 The Outlawz Progressive challenge for April gave us an image sponsored by Sandra.  The image is "Simple Tulip".  For this beautiful image, I decided to print a few varying the size. and colouring with pencils.  I found some sentiments in my digital stash. I used a pinstripe embossing folder to make the background for the tulips.  I also put a smaller tulip inside the card.  I hope Sandra likes what I have done with the simple tulip.

Papercraft Secrets with Di's Digis

 A Facebook group I belong to, Papercraft Secrets - Creating with Confidence, has a monthly challenge.  April's theme is FAMILY.  I am using these prompts to decorate my monthly DT journal which documents what I create.  I decided to look through my Di's Digis to find a stamp to suit this theme. The digital stamp I chose is "Garden Friends", however I could not find it in the shop, it must be discontinued. I also wanted to use the Easter papers Alicia from Papercraft Secrets gave us on the Patreon subscription.  Here is the result.

A New Kid on the Block

 I would love you to check out this new Etsy shop,  A & Jj Designs .  

At the moment there is a 25% sale.

I can't get over the quality of these papers and images when printed.  You need to take a look yourself, as these products are out of this world.

Here is a few of my cards and journal pages I have made with these products.  I am so impressed with them, I have decided to dedicate a whole journal to A & Jj Designs creations. I will leave some space in the journal for writing.
