Puff the Magic Dragon

This is quite a cutie for this weeks
which this week theme is
Spooky or Whimsical.
 I have gone with the later with this very cheeky dragon,which I have just had to colour green. He is coloured with TRIA pens and the image is cut using Spellbinder labels 2.
I have glittered his wings, smoke clouds and the butterfly trail (well he just has to have a bit of glitter). plus the lovely pink seam binding bow coloured to match with the trias.
The flowers are punched and the leaves are a Mareanne Die. Just a bit more glitter in the centre of the flower and some tiny gems at the corners complete this card.

Wrap up Warm

Its that time of the week again and here is this weeks card for The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, which this week is Wrap up Warm with woolies. This week I have used one of the latest SWALK images, coloured with Tria alcohol pens.
I have added a bit of glitter to the snowflakes, fake snow to the falling snow and puffy stuff to the furry bits on her coat and hat. I have die cut all the layers and added some gold snowflakes down the edge of the card.
Just for a bit of fun I have added a crochet doily for a bit more of the wooly idea. The design is completed with a stamped Merry Christmas sentiment and seam binding coloured to match and tied in a bow.

Red Geisha

Here is my card for this weeks Secret Crafter Challenge of White and one other colour not encluding the image. I like Oriental designs a lot but I don't do as many as I would like to.

The tree is a Sweet Poppy stencil and black embossing paste with a little bit of glitter thrown in.

The Geisha is stamped and coloured with Tria alchohol pens. Then I have cut here out and popped her on the card. The Card base and layers are cut out with large dies, I have used a punch just to decorate the corners of the picture and a bow to finish it off.

Anything goes with glitter too

This is my card this week for the Secret Crafter DT challenge. I made this card for my friends birthday from her hubby. As you can see it's got one of my favorite Magnolia images on it, with a real frilly lace border round the outside. The flowers and leaves are die cut with Marianne Dies and there is a touch of glitter in the centre of the flowers. The is a very special and personal sentiment on the inside, it really made her laugh.

My first card as a member of the Secret crafter Design Team, and I think the theme is quite obvious.
The back ground is a picture of the moon. I have stamped the branches round the sides the house is stampled to the is just a little frosted stickles on the windows.

The inside has a stamped cate with emerald stickles for eys and pumpkin buttons. All the stamps are Elusive Images.
Something a little different. I hope you agree.
