SOS289 - Blue Lacy Birthday

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Winter Blues - we want to see a lot of blue on everyone's creations, but no winter theme.
I used my whole stash of blue Distress Inks (from Broken China all the way to Chipped Saphire) and a new Stampin Up set Delicate Details. The silver sentiment does not show as well as I imagined, next time I'll stamp it in black.

SOS287 - Fairy with Dragon

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called All That Glitter is Gold and we want to see GOLD on everyone's creations


I used a digi by Moly Harrison and attempted to color it using the tutorial from Kit and Clowder. Didn't work out as well as I imagined and I totally messed up the background so I cut the image out and adhered it onto Serene Scenery PP from Stampin Up. Added gold layer and gold accents and went to town with my gold Wink of Stela pen - it's on all the flowers and on all the yellow/orange surfaces of the image :)

Challenges:
Color Inspiration Monday - anything hand colored
Brown Sugar  - Anything Goes

I decided to play with my new Inside The Lines DP from Stampin Up - colored it all in with watercolor pencils and added blue Stickles on all the flowers.
The thank you sentiment die is something I ordered on ebay and I was quite surprised that these no name chinese dies work very well :)

I found this super cute gist card/treat holder by Intatwyne design and had to try it too. The box is perfect for 3 Ferrero Rocher chocolates - you could fill it with other candy, if you added acetate in the window.
You can find the video tutorial here.

SS440 - Enchanted Christmas

It's Saturday and that means a new sketch at Sketch Saturday. Here is the sketch

and my take:
We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter this week, so we got to play with their lovely digis.  This one is called Enchanted Christmas and you can find it here. I printed the digi with background three times, cut out pieces and created a layered look. Then I decided that an enchanted Christmas needs some sparkle so I added teal and white glitter paper to the background and also some touches with Wink Of Stella.

Challenge:
Fab 'n' Funky - Things with Wings
Crafting By Design - Get Ready For Christmas
Moving Along With Times - Anything Christmas Goes
