Warm Winter Wishes - Cosy Goth Girl

I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and enjoy the New Year.

My first make to show is a Gift Card holder I created for my DT blog post make around a week ago. More details on the post HERE.

So many people keep telling me if I like hot chocolate than I needed to have one from Costa, I could never understand the big thing about Costa; as I'm not much of a tea or coffee drinker. But wow, I'm shocked, I had a medium hot chocolate with marshmellows and because they put the marshmellows in first they melted in. Yummy I see why people go there now!
I also had to try their giant Custard Cream biscuit once I saw it - OK I wasn't really a fan of how it tasted but it is still a pretty awesome idea, I felt so small next to it! hehe.

Finally last nights make.

Let the Holidays Begin Challenge

It is that time again folks... Christmas and Challenge time!
Today marks the day of The Stamping Shack's third challenge and final challenge of 2012.
This mid months theme is Let the holidays begin - so feel free to link up over on the Challenge post at The Stamping Shack, any new crafty creation for 'let the holidays begin.'

My DT project was something a little bit different for Christmas.
I created a paper chain for my tree with the Polar Bear Love digi stamp with a gorgeous wintery feel and not a lot of colouring needed and I also created a few hanging decorations from the Postage Elf digi.
The great thing about digi stamps are that you can rotate them and flip them however you wish, this is a great way to create unique paper chains, you can also resize them to whatever size you choose so that it can fit any size tree.

Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas to you all!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge

Thank you to those who joined in our first challenge over at The Stamping Shack and congratulations to the winners!
Here is a simple, shiny and glam card for the all new 'Sparkle & Shine' Challenge at The Stamping Shack.
I tried to use as much sparkle and shine as I could - Greeny Grey / Brown backing paper was already shiny on the brown detailing, I sprayed the other plain backing paper with irredesant spray and left to dry, both papers from one of my favourite paper pads 'Desert Blooms' by First Edition Paper. I picked the 38mm Gold double sided satin ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons, which has a slight sparkle to it, which is stunning. The image Princess Daisy is from The Stamping Shack shop, from the Oscar and Daisy collection, I coloured her in with Promarkers, the sparkly crown and shoes were Metallic Promarkers. I finished it all off with Liquid Pearls for the necklace and a few sparkly orange/yellow gems scattered, the text was created using plain black card and sizzix dies.

Promarkers used: Skin = Blush and Sunkissed Pink, Dress = Ice Grey 2,  Sparkle = MetallicMarker Gold.

Why not enter the Sparkle and Shine challenge and you could win yourself some digis, you do NOT need to use The Stamping Shack digis but if you do you could win even MORE prizes. Best of Luck!
