Blog changes

I have decided that from Monday 20th October I will be separating my creations.

This blog will remain solely for my Stampin’ Up business and crafting and all my Design Team work and ‘other’ creations will now appear here.

I have reposted some of my past creations to the new blog, they will still remain on here but going forward you will only see Stampin’ Up creations, promotions, etc on here.

I will leave this post on top till further notice so those that wish to change over to the new blog can find it easily.

Thanks for understanding.

Otis the Wizard

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges and this time the challenge is…..

V is for Vibrant.

For this challenge we want you to use strong, bright colours.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Oak Pond Creations and Marker Pop.

We were provided with some images from Oak Pond Creations and I’ve chosen to create using ‘Otis the Wizard’ and make this 3D Witchy Hat from SVGcuts.


I printed my image onto X-Press It Blending Card, coloured with Copic Markers and cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.

The colours I’ve used are: V17, V15, V12, YR18, YR16, YR15, YR12, YG25, YG23, YG21, W3, W1, W00.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


The papers I’ve used on my Witchy Hat are digital papers from Nitwit Collections and my cardstock is some old & some new from Stampin’ Up.

The top part of the hat comes off allowing you to place some lollies or a gift inside.


Stamps: Otis the Wizard (Oak Pond Creations)
Card: Tangerine Tango, Orchid Opulence (Stampin’ Up), X-Press It Blending Card
DSP – FQB Halloween Hooligans (Nitwit Collections)
Accessories: Copic Markers

If you haven’t already stopped by ABC Challenges and checked out what the rest of the DT have created then please do so now.

I’m entering my creation into the following challenges:

Cut it Up – #55 Halloween ‘Anything but a Card’

Simply Create Too – #72 Halloween

In the 20’s

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Shabby Chic’.

This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

As soon as I saw the theme for this challenge I knew the exact image I was going to use and that is In the 20’s.


I’ve teamed my image with some of the gorgeous Digital Papers from The Paper Shelter.

I’ve used 2 different packs which are both new. One print is from the Autumn Shades pack and the other from the Matching with Halloween pack.

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30; Hair, Coat, Hat & Shoes – E57, E55, E53, E51, E50; Dress, Bag, Hat trim & Flower – RV95, RV93, RV91; Leaves – BG96, BG93, BG90.

Here’s a close up of the image…


I have sponged all edges and die cuts using Antique Linen Distress Ink. My dies are a mixture of Marianne Designs and Spellbinders and my card shape & main layer are from Go Kreate. A flower spray, some lovely lace & shabby ribbon, a few pearls and a couple of bark hearts complete my Shabby Chic creations.
