Jude & The Rockers

It's preview time again over at Simply Betty Stamps. This week the girls from SBS are previewing Jude and The Rockers. I've decided to join in on the fun and make a couple of cards as well. Today I have Jude to introduce.

I've coloured the image using Copics and given his jeans a bit of a textured look using some denim material soaked with Copic Blender fluid.  The star has been cut using SCAL and my Cricut.  The wording stamp I've had for ages and never used.  Not sure who made it as it's a clear set.  The papers and bits and pieces are from my stash.

Be sure to head over to the Simply Betty Blog and see what the DT have created.  Check back here in a couple of days and I'll have another image to share with you as well. 

I thought I would also enter this card into the challenge over at Cards For Men.  The theme this week is stars.

Free Spirit

It's the second last preview day of the Burton-Weenies, and today we have Harley to introduce.

I was a bit disappointed with the photo.  Her hair is actually yellow with green streaks but it's really difficult to see this. 
All the bits and pieces are from my stash. The paper is something I bought last year but there is no label on it, so I'm guessing it came from a paper stack.

It's day three of the Burton-Weenies release preview over at The Burtonesque Dolls and also time for a challenge.

Today we have Ellanore to share with you, and the challenge is "Put me in a Burton movie"

For my card today I decided that I would have Ellanore audition for the role of Kim in Edward Scissorhands.  I used the following quote from the movie for inspiration:

"You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it."

Be sure to head over and see what the other Dolls have created.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Come back tomorrow for another sneak peek.

White, Cream and Gold Christmas Card.

Ok time for another Christmas card. I made this one this morning. I cleaned my craft room over the weekend so I now have a lovely tidy area to be creative. This is my first creation in my "tidy room"

I found some paper I hadn't seen in awhile so used that for the snowflake.  The gold background paper has been embossed using Spellbinders Impressabilities-Snowflake.  The lace and button are from my stash.
I thought I would enter this in Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge as the challenge this week was to include a button(s) on your project.  

Don't forget to check out my blog candy for your chance to win some fantastic Chritmas Stamping goodies.

Burtonesque Dolls Burton-Weenies Sneak Peek

This week The Burtonesque Dolls are helping to release another new range of images from Simply Betty Stamps.  The new range is called The Burton-Weenies.  We will be releasing a new image every day for six days.  Today we have Jack Jack.

Most of what I used for this card came from my scrap box.  The ball chain, trim and brads I've had in my stash for ages.  The metal embellishment is from a set of poetry dog tags I bought about 8 years ago, on one of my trips to The US. They came in a little metal box with about 100 different words.
I've coloured the image with Copics.  I've used a small piece of heavy denim material saturated with Copic Blender Fluid (0) to give the jeans a textured look.
Make sure you head over to the blog and check out what the other dolls have created.

Red & White Christmas Card

Here is my first "winter" Christmas card. I always feel so much more inspired to make Christmas cards during winter, so hopefully this will be the first of many to come over the next few months.

All the papers, including the card itself are from my scrap box.  The main images are from JustRite Stamps  The wording is from Sunshine Designs.  I've used my Spellbinder Dies to cut out both images.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge-Ribbon
Christmas Stampin All Year Long- To Die For-Use a Die Cut for the main image.

Another month has flown by, and it is once again time for the monthly challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year Round.

For the first card I've used up some scraps of paper from my scrap box- Christina Rae I believe. 

I've used JustRite Stamps and Spellbinder dies for both cards.
