Shabby Chic at That Craft Place

I could go on and on about why I've not posted for so long but most, if not all of you know what's been going on anyway, so I'll just get on with the good stuff!

Time for another challenge at TCP and this time it's Shabby Chic!

I have made a wall hanging using lots of gorgeous goodies from the shop, including one of the new gorgeous Buttonbox fairies!



This is the gorgeous Bella. 


I have coloured her using my copics on Lisa's Super smooth card and used stampendus shabby pink embossing enamel to decorate.
The hanger, papers, all flowers and other bits and bobs were from TCP.

Check out our challenge blog for full challenge details and to see what the amazing team have been creating!!

Hopefully I will be back soon with some more creations!!

The theme for this is
 
 
Use a Charm.
 
I have been looking forward to spring for a long time so decided to go for something bright and cheerful to break up the dull days we have been having!!
 
 
The image is IIIeana from Slinky Tart and I think she is gorgeous!!
 
The charm I have used on this card is actually a heart shaped locket that comes from That Craft Place, along with all the flowers, ribbon, skeleton leaves etc.  The sentiment stamp is from My Favourite Things an the papers are Graphic 45, both purchased from the lovely Lisa at TCP.

That Craft Place Challenge Time..... Inspired by a Film.

I'm back!! 
 
Today, That Craft Place, is launching another of their fab challenges and for once, I have some inspiration to show you!!
 
The theme for this challenge is
 
 
Inspired by a film
 
This style of challenge are my favourites.
 
With it being Valentines day yesterday I chose to go for a good old soppy film.....
 
Love, Actually
 
 
 
The stamp is an exclusive club kit Marci from La La Land Crafts which I just totally adore.  I have used a combination of dies and my cameo to make the layers.  The flowers, trim. leaves and ceramic angel are from TCP.
 
 
Alice in Wonderland
 
 
This time I used the Alice in Wonderland digis from La La Land Crafts, (yes loving these at the moment!).  I used them to decorate Lisa's fabulous standing mushroom MDF laser cut.   If you haven't checked out what she is doing you really should.... the options are endless!!  I sprayed this with aerosol primer and then gave it a light even coat of gesso.  I use this method as the aerosol gives a really smooth finish and covers really well, the only problem being it doesn't really like be painted on.  I find a light coat of gesso really helps with this.... it doesn't need to be thick as the whiteness is already achieved, its just a better surface to paint onto.  I cut various different tufts of grass using my cameo.  The images were also printed and cut using the cameo softwear which saves hours of fussy cutting!!!  Then to make this more 3D I used small off cuts from acrylic packaging to make six tabs I then stuck them to the back of the images (top and bottom), to stand them away from the mushrooms.  I then finished it off by covering the front edge with more grass.
 
 
 
 
Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favourites and I have been waiting for an idea to use with these mushrooms, so this just had to happen!!

Here at Digi Galore 

Our Theme is 
Add a Button 





and we have some amazing work by our DT 
We are sponsored by 
Were the 2 winner will receive 
  Digi Images of their choice 
 
Here is what I made for you all.
 
How cute is this image??
 
I used the print and cut feature on my Cameo to print her out.  The papers are Bonnets and Bowties from Lili of the Valley and Nit Wits and were actually a freebie from one of the crafting mags!!  And yeap.... I have since bought the pad of them!!  The buttons are from That Craft Place and the ribbon and sentiment were just in my stash.
 
This is being sent to a special lady who is linked to the 'The Last Leg' page on FB.  Its her birthday, she is very poorly and her lovely husband asked for lots of cards to try and cheer her up.  I hope she likes it.
