Sugar Bowl - November Challenge

Hello All,

Its time for another challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. For this card I have used the fabulous Sugar Nellie Stamp - Windswept which you can find other vintage Krista images over at Funky Kits

I really enjoyed colouring this one, playing with techniques I have learned in the Kit and Clowder classes, .... I think Dip Died hair is becoming a bit of a fad for me at the mo!!

I have teamed the image up with some Tilda - Classic papers. The Die is Tim Holtz and I made some paper flowers using paper clay and a WOW silicone mold. I then tinted slightly using distress ink - warm lipstick.

We had so many amazing entries in last months sugar bowl ... I cant wait to see what you inspire us with in the month ahead.

As always thanks for looking

Anne Shirley

Hi All,

I think any long time followers of my blog will know that I am obsessed with the Anne of Green Gables, I have read the books countless times, and have watched the Megan Follows series so much that I can practically quote the whole thing!! ..... So as you can imagine I LOVE this Krafting Kimmie stamp.

I have coloured her up using my trusty copics ... & teamed her with papers from my scrap pile ... The background paper was a little plain so I have overstamped with Bo Bunny stamps to add a little interest, I have used memory box dies ... handmade spiral roses, and added a sprinkling of Frantage.

I found the sentiment on Pinterest it reads:

7 things I learned from Anne Shirley:

1 - Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes
2- As bad as one may think Red hair is Green is 10 times worse
3- One Cannot be expected to give up being a little girl all at once.
4- A sense of Humor is vital
5-Never settle for anything less than Gilbert Blythe
6-Riches are great, but the things unseen are what last
7-The world would be very dull if everyone were sensible

Im sure this stamp will be used time and time again :-)

I would like to enter this into this into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations - Warm Autumn Colours
Crafty Calander - Flowers, Sentiment, Blue
Crafting Musketeeers - Autumn colours
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Alphabet R - round or rectangle
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Hi All,

Love this image .... this is a card I have made for Granny!! In the summer my little girl had her first experience of rollercoster rides, she had a ride on the carousel with granny ... and the horse they rode on was called Rosie, which is granny's name. So when I saw this gorgeous Tatty Twinkles image, I just HAD to get it.
I have coloured this one up using copics. All the papers are from my scrap bag, so there is a little HOTP in there, some Bo Bunny and Echo Park in there.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes
613 Avenue - Anything Goes
