Wow is it already time for a new challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun, time just seems to be moving so quickly at the moment.

Anyway, the theme this fortnight is 'Food Related'.

I have used an image by Drawn with Character - 'We go together like Peanut butter and jelly'.

I chose this image because I love peanut butter and jam on toast, but hubby thinks it is weird, so I am going to save this card for him :)

I used a file from the silhouette store to create a toast shaped card base, which I cut in a textured card stock.

I colored the image with a mix of Copics and Spectrum Noir Pencils.

Finally I can share a project I worked on a couple of weeks ago for my Mother in Laws 70th Birthday.

It wasn't meant to be quite so big, but it cut so well, I didn't want to try again :)

I cut the letters from cardstock and the detailed overlay from pearlescent paper.

I designed the letters by super-sizing my font and then filling with various files from the Silhouette store. and welding to the inside of the letters.

I added a large butterfly border across the top with mini gems on the bodies.

Next I covered 2 MDF hears in silver paper and sanded round the edges once the glue was dry to give nice smooth edges.  Once I was happy I added a sentiment cut from Vinyl.

Finished off with some little butterflies, gems and Roses.

Double Delight

So excited for release day at Aurora Wings, even more so because it is a double release - yay

Mitzi has created a beautiful new sprite - Edamame, if like me you had no idea what this is, its an immature soybean still in its pod, they look just like peas.

So here she is, coloured up with Copics.

I used various dies Tattered lace corners, nor designs fancy square and a la-la land banner.

The papers are first Edition - Spring Drop and all the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

I added a sentiment in vinyl, but chose the wrong colour, as it doesn't photograph well on the patterned paper.

For this project I covered an MDF door hanger in paper, once the glue was dry I sanded down the edges with a sanding block.

I cut up a memory box wave die and glued around the top edge and again added a vinyl sentiment.

I colored this little guy with Copics too and added some SN Pencil over parts of the tail.

I finished off with some dew drops for bubbles and tiny gems for his jewels.

Winter Vacation

This fortnight at Open-Minded Crafting Fun our theme is 'Winter Vacation'

I got to use such a cute image by Doodle Pantry, called 'Sledding Ants', which I merged with a Winter sign from Make it Crafty.

I coloured the image with my Copics and then added some clear stickles.

The backing paper is from LOTV.  I then hand cut some cream card to look like a hill for the little guys to sled down.

The sentiment was added using my Silhouette sketch pens.

We would love to see your winter Vacation creations, so hop over and join in.

As always we have some fab sponsors.
