I’m delighted to share a little news with you today…I was recently asked to be GDT over at Crafting From the Heart, a new challenge blog which opened its virtual doors for the first time in late November. I am very lucky to be joining them for their December and January challenges.
There are two sponsors and two great prizes up for grabs this fortnight. Delicious Doodles have 4 images up for grabs and Dilly Beans are offering 3 digis to a lucky winner – definitely worth popping over there to enter!!
I have two cards to share with you today. My first card uses an adorable framed penguin image from Dilly Beans.
I had great fun with this little chap; after colouring most of the image with ProMarkers, I paper pieced his hat and scarf using a knit-style paper from the Sweater Weather collection by Harper Finch. I also added a second layer of holly and popped his beak up on 3D pads to create some depth. I embossed a piece of white cardstock using the ???? folder to echo the chevron knit of the paper. For a final touch, I coloured a textured vinyl snowflake with the same blue as I used for the sky in the background, added a button, some silver beads and a little baker’s twine. Hey presto! An adorable little penguin, all bundled up warm!!
My second card features a wonky 3-tiered cake image from Delicious Doodles.
I coloured the image with a selection of ProMarkers, and the added some Stickles to give it a little shimmer and sparkle, which I hope you can see in the photo above. For the background, I laid a layer of shimmery pale pink wrapping paper over a card blank, then added a layer of white card with some sparkly vellum. In the centre, I added a piece of pink polka dot satin ribbon and some square pink gems to a happy birthday sentiment from a Forever Friends paper stack.
I hope you’ll get a chance to pop over to see the DT projects over at Crafting From The Heart; they’re such a friendly bunch of crafters, I know they’ll make you feel welcome!
