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

New Year’s Resolutions……

It’s that time of the year again where some of us make Resolutions for the New Year, so our challenge for you today at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog is to create a card/project about a New Year’s Resolution you might be making.

We want you to have some fun with this, so if you are like me and set some Resolutions for the year knowing that you probably won’t stick with some of them (or you know it will be a struggle), let that show in your entry.

See if you can guess what one of my Resolutions might be…….

I’ve used the fun image by Mo Manning called Cupcake Thief.

Here’s a close up of the image.

Here’s some more pictures of the Cake Box which is made on my Silhouette Cameo. The design is called 3D Denni Cake Boxes by Snapdragon Snippets. It has 2 compartments in it for gifts (or should I say treats….lol).


I really would like to loose some weight this year. I’m being realistic though and won’t set a goal of how much until I start making an effort. Hopefully eating better and getting into the habit of walking our dogs on a regular basis will be a good start.

So what are your Resolutions for 2014?

Stamps: Cupcake Thief (Mo Manning Collection from Stamping Bella)
Card: Cryongen White cardstock, Pacific Point & Daffodil Delight (Stampin’ Up), DSP – The Spring Fling & Summer Days Combo Stack (DCWV)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Mega Small Rectangles Plain & Scallop (Spellbinders), Copic Markers, Silhouette Cameo, Red Liner Tape, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
