Magazine holder with cards

This week at Stampin Royalty we have an awesome challenge. ANYTHING goes. Although, I must confess, these challenges are really not that easy. Especially just sticking to one project. So I went with this awesome magazine - card holder and filled it up with some pretty quick cards. I am so loving the new in colours from Stampin Up this year. If you would like to have a go at making this holder, here is the link below. Oh, I actually use the cardboard that comes with the designer paper packets for all of the boxes and 3d items. Much stronger than card stock, although limited by colour.

Make another wish

I thought I would participate in a new sketch blog I found earlier this week. Its called Sketch Saturday. So here is the card I  made using the sketch below. The image is one of Tiddlyinks, which I am addicted to, as you have probably worked out, and the paper is from a little paper pad that I purchased soooo long ago (before SU days) which is I think a paper craft pack. I used my copics to colour the image and used the scallop border punch for the border. I think that is about it.

Make a wish

I can't believe that it has been so long since I have completed a challenge for the Friday Mash Up. I decided that this weekend, (after housework was finished) I would spend my time in my craft room and create something. I searched my blog for the challenges and found this one. I love the colours, and who can go past cake. Certainly not me. I used a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl, (links are on the left hand side of my blog) and coloured her using my copics, to match the Stampin Up papers. I think she is very cute. I have included the link below so you can see what the team from Friday Mash up have created.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with the colors "Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate & Basic Grey."
  2. Create a project with a "Cake."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "with a Cake using the colors above."

Halloween Goodie Packaging

This week at Stampin Royalty we have a Halloween Goodie Packaging challenge for you all. Well, I hope that this little jar of halloween - ish type goodies fits the bill. Here are a few more images, although I must say that this looks better in real life (and tastes better) than on the photograph.

Colour Challenge #197

Here is the card I made for the Colour Challenge at Stampin Royalty this week. I seem to be having a pretty Halloween-ish time lately, although I may have to send some of these cards to people that celebrate Halloween. The colours are listed below for the challenge and I have used the Halloween Bingo Bits from Stampin Ups' My Design Studio. (I also cheated and used the two square punches, also from Stampin Up.

Have a look at this.

Stampin Up have released an app for iPad. (Still working on IPhone) and is available for free on the APP Store. This has all of the digital stamps available in your selected country so you can catalogue the digital (or having to have) stamps on your iPad. And as a major bonus. IT IS FREE. Here is a screen shot of my iPad after I have been through the Father section. Cool

I can see this being a very valuable app indeed. So what are you waiting for. Head on over and grab the app for free. Seriously, go now. :)

Fall Photo Inspiration

It's picture inspiration time at Stampin Royalty. I mainly used the colours and the Fall, theme from this picture. I used Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip for my card stock. I also used a digital stamp and sentiment for the middle. Pop on over and have a look at what the other girls came up with, they are SUPER talented.
