and is available in Mary's shop here.  

Thank you Mary for your continued support of The Outlawz Challenges.


As Createful Heart Digis & Design has started their monthly blog challenges again, I would like to also enter this project in their Challenge #1 - Theme Autumn/Fall

Ericraft Stamps "Mumma Chook"

Here is an ATC I have created using Ericraft Stamps "Mumma Chook".

This image is available in the Etsy  EricraftShop.  Here is the link for "Mumma Chook" and she is at a discounted price at the moment but don't delay, the offer won't last forever.

By the way, I can't take credit for the amazing background, except the Pine Cone shading around the edges.  The background was gifted to me in an ATC swap and I thought it suited Mumma perfectly.

Bugaboo Stamps "Stella & Gus" Deck of Cards

I just love Stella images from Bugaboo Stamps.  This time I have used "Stella & Gus Deck of Cards" for my daughter and son-in-law's 15th Wedding Anniversary.

This image can be purchased here and I have also used Make-it-Crafty chipboard.

I am entering The Outlawz Challenges with this card.


Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps "Red Panda"

My grand-daughter Verity is turning double digits this week.  When I asked her what she wanted her answer was a real pet Red Panda.  Unfortunately I cannot fulfill that request, but I remembered I had a Red Panda in my digital folders, in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps downloads.  So this is what I posted to her today.

I have used autumn colours in the colouring of the Red Panda image which is available in the Etsy Shop of gjzcck.  I hope you check out this shop, it has beautiful images that I can never resist.

I will enter http://cck-digitalstamps-challenge.blogspot.com/2018/09/ching-chou-kuik-digital-stamps.html with Verity's birthday card.

LeAnn's World 101 "Cindy"

This month's progressive challenge at LeAnn's World 101 features "Cindy".  I have been wanting to join in this challenge for a while, but either run out of time or forget, so this month I decided to purchase the stamp and give it a go.  Here is my creation.  I guess you could say it's an inspiration card.

MKC Digitals September 2018 Release

After a short break Mari Ko Creations has been revamped to become MKC Digitals and I am proud to still be on Mari's Design Team.  Here are a few links for you to check out:

Shop (and if you are quick, you will find we have a 30% discount on the new shop until 10th September 2018).  This link isn't just a shop!  You will find some great tabs to check out on the home page, some are direct links back to the blog, a project gallery which has some fantastic inspiration and of course a link to our monthly challenge when that starts.

You Tube - Mari has been busy and already has 2 videos

Blog - Mari is a great blogger, so you will find lots of info there too and of course a link back to the shop.  Stay tuned for information on our challenges here too.

Today I am going to showcase some of my creations with the September release.  Mari has concentrated on school inspired digis this month.  You will find them in the shop under the NEW Collection or the SCHOOL Collection. 

These are bookmarks I have coloured with Copics and laminated.  I have given them to two of my grandchildren to give to their teachers as they are leaving their current school.

This is a Planner Band I am giving to a crafty friend who I could not be without on this  papercraft journey, and believe it or not, we haven't even met in person yet.  As much as I said I don't go much on social media, it is what brought us together and I am so grateful for her friendship.

I have also made some planner clips and reminder pencils.  I hope I have inspired you to use your digital stamps for other projects.  Don't forget all the stamps I have used are available in the MKC Digitals Shop.

"Reindeer Sprite" by Stamps by AuroraWings

I just love Mitzi's Sprites - if I haven't purchased all of them yet, I will!  Today I made a Christmas card for her challenge this month https://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/2018/09/mid-challenge-inspiration-post-for.html and it's a sketch.

I have used some Make It Crafty chipboard for this sketch.  Here are the links to the two pieces I have used and I still have more holly on the set I can use.  I have coloured the chipboard and image with Copics and added some sparkle to the chipboard with Ink of Stella Clear.

Christmas Guinea Pig

I have always loved guinea pigs, I remember having them as a child, my children had them and my grandchildren have also enjoyed them.  I could not resist this image from Limited Runs "Christmas Guinea Pig".

This image and more can be purchased at the shop and don't forget if you buy a gift certificate you save a little bit more.  I have given myself a gift certificate and/or you can give a RAK to a friend.  All details are on the link.

I have entered this in Limited Runs Facebook Group's Bonus Challenge and General Challenge.  If you haven't joined their Facebook Group, the link is here.  There is a Progressive Challenge every month too.  I hope to see you there.

"Gaming Dude"

This month at SheepSki Designs we are featuring the theme "For the Kidz" in our Blog Challenge.  I have been playing with "Gamer Dude" available in the SheepSki Etsy shop.

I decided to make a birthday card with this image for my grandson Adam, who is turning 13 in October - this digi is very appropriate for him!

I didn't have anything to suit this card in my stash, not even paper, although there could be some buried somewhere I have forgotten about, you know what it is like.  When in doubt GOOGLE, which I did and found this background.  I coloured Adam (Gamer Dude) with Copics putting some stripes on his top. I also cropped the image to get just the gaming consoles (hope that is what you call them, not into it myself).  I printed three of each of the three and used foam tape to add an extra one of each to the image and used 2 each of the consoles to put on the side.

I hope Adam likes his card, but I hope he doesn't see it before his birthday.

Don't forget to check out out September Challenge over on the SheepSki blog. Just look for the post for Challenge 18  with the theme "For the Kidz".

Don't forget if you are over at our Etsy shop looking for a digi for this theme, you can use this code to get 10% off your order.
