Mighty wizard


   This week the anything goes themed challenge at Crafting From the Heart is being sponsored by





   I have used their digi image called Mighty wizard and after colouring it using Promarkers I fussy cut it out.
   I matted and layered printed paper from my stash and copper coloured mirri card onto white card.
From a second square of white card I cut a pentagonal aperture using a Tattered lace die and positioned the wizard looking through this before matting it onto the prepared card. I then attached copper coloured peel off strips around the aperture and added a happy birthday sentiment.

Parachuting birdie



   The theme for this week's challenge at QKR Stampede is anything goes with the twist up up and away.
   My bird has been up and is now coming down!
   I matted the cloud paper printed using a My Craft Studio CD ROM and the green paper printed using Joanna Sheen's Egyptian Adventure CD OM onto black card and then onto white card. Using Tattered Lace's winter town die I cut strips of houses from black card and attached cream card behind them. I then attached them to the foreground of the card using differing thicknesses of foam pads.
   I coloured the digi called Parachuting birdie using Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the goggles. I then cut it out leaving a narrow margin around the edge and fixed it to the card.
   I coloured some individual peel off letters and one Happy Birthday peel off to make the sentiment, placing the black coloured happy birthday slightly off-centre over a gold coloured happy birthday.

Santa snowglobe

Little Blue Button Stamps who are offering a $10 gift certificate

   I cut out whit card using the Tattered Lace snowglobe 2016 die. Using gold gilding wax I gilded the front of the card and then backed it onto white card and cut round it. The image is from Little Blue Button Stamps and is one of their Santa bottle caps. I cut this out using the die and glued it into the front aperture. Using a Tattered Lace holly swirl I cut a couple of holly sprigs, coloured them using Promarkers and attached them to the card. I then finished the card with a bow.
