Christmas Gift tags using Visible Image

I decided to make some special tags for my favourite presents I'm giving away this year, so I turned to my gorgeous Isabella and Edgar stamps from Visible Image

They are coloured with Distress Markers and then COVERED in glitter glue but my rubbish photography isn't really showing it!  Im hoping the will look nice with my blue and silver wrapping paper but until I have to give them away I think I will hang them on my Christmas Tree!

Pinks, Purples or Reds with Through the Purple Haze

We are having a colour challenge this week  at Through the Purple Haze challenges and you can choose from pink, purple or red!  We are sponsored by Sassy Studios.  I went out of my comfort zone with some girly pinks

I have kept it really simple this week.  I had bought a box of bath flowers as a present but the box was so dull!  When I saw the gorgeous Katniss digi I knew she would be perfect.  Shes coloured with spectrum noirs as are the flower die cuts behind her which are from my stash, in fact I think they maybe the cards you get perfume samples on in department stores lol!

Heres more of a view of the box

I can't wait to see all the gorgeous entries you have to offer.

Creative Fingers Paper Piecing

Our challenge this week at Creative Fingers has the optional twist of Paper piecing, a favourite technique of mine, where rather than colour an image you use a patterned paper.  I decided to make a wee pen holder

Our sponsor is the fabulous Birdy Brown who supplied these adorable bear digis.  Their scarves are paper pieced with some HOTP papers, my background card is Kanban and my dies are Memory Box.

Please pop along to the blog with your Anything goes creations or try your hand at Paper piecing. I can't wait to see all the entries.

Anything goes at Through the Purple Haze

We are having an Anything goes theme this week at Through the Purple Haze Challenges so theres no excuse not to share all your wonderful creations wirh us!

We are having a team head to head and my team was lucky enough to get Stitchy Bear digis to play with and I hit the jackpot as I got the wonderful Christina! Heres the card I made with her

Isnt she stunning, I hope I've done her justice!  She's coloured with flexmarkers and accented with glitter glue.  My card is Kanban as is the mat behind her whuch Ive wrapped with twine.  I was really going for a 3d theme.  My snowflake twirl die is Memory Box and my snowflakes are Craft Too dies.  My sentinent is a glittered peel off I've had for about 400 years!

Heres another close up of Christina

She is so beautiful and I just loved colouring her in my favourite colour scheme for winter, blue and white.

I hope you can have a look at the challenge blog for all the details of the challenge this week and have a peek at all the fab DT inspiration.
