Sugar Skull Bling Card

Here is my card for this week's challenge over at Platypus Creek Digitals.
 The challenge this week is to use Bling on your project. Diamantes, glitter, pearls etc can be used, as little or as much as you like, so long as there is bling on your project somewhere.
 Anyone can join the challenge. If you use a PCD file on your project (freebie or purchased), you will be in the draw for the main prize of 4 PCD digi files of your choice. 
 If you don't use a PCD file, that's ok you can still win second prize of 1 PCD digi file of your choice.


The image that I've used is Sugar Skull.  I've used the coloured version of the digi.  The flowers and little skull brad are from my stash.  I've used Lacy Squares Spellbinder Die for the backing and embellished with lots of diamantes.  I've also coloured some of the skull with a clear Atyou Spica Glitter pen to give it a little sparkle.

Be sure to head over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I will be linking this project to Make It Monday

Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls Altered Challenge

It's time for an altered challenge over at Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls, and this week the theme is:

Pandora's Box

Make a project with a box. You can make the box yourself, or use a store bought one that you can alter. Be sure to keep it creepy!


For my project I altered a gift box that I had stashed away in the craft room.  It was already black so it was a rather quick project.  

The image is a Platypus Creek Digital image.  I've added some flowers, diamantes and a brad I had in my stash.

Be sure to head over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT have created.

Fancy Fold Cupcakes

Here is the card I made for this weeks challenge over at Platypus Creek Digitals.


Both the image and the cutting file for the card are freebies that can be downloaded from the blog.
The image will be available until the challenge closes.  The cutting file for the card will be a permanent freebie.
The wording stamp is from Sunshine Designs.
I've used a Spellbinder M-Bossibilities folder to emboss the purple cardstock.

The cutting file is for a scalloped edged card.  It was designed as a three fold card.  Here I have scored it three times.  Folding the bottom up and then folding the scalloped edge down.  The third fold is simply the main crease.

The sparkly stuff behind the cupcakes is crystal shre.

The image has been printed onto Express It blender card and coloured with Copics.  The colours I've used are:

R81
R83
E31
E35
BV02
BV04
Y06
Y15
RV69

Be sure to head over to the blog and see what the other Design Team members have created for The Fancy Fold Challenge.
