Creative Moments Challenge – Keep it masculine

Well, the digistamp I chose this week doesn’t easily lend itself to a masculine card! So I decided to make a card for a baby boy.

The digi I chose is called Heartstrings and is available from

I opened the digistamp in Craft Artist Professional to change the print colour to blue.  I added the words Baby boy in the same shade of blue before printing.  The printout was matted onto some matching blue card before being mounted onto a card.  I then enhanced the image with some ultra fine glitter in “Candy floss”.

Do take a look at the Creative Moments Challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s creations and enter the current challenge!

Creative Moments challenge – Love in the air

The optional theme this time at Creative Moments is Love is in the air.  I have used Squirrel from

and the image was flipped and printed onto kraft Neenah card.  I used Promarkers and a white Spectrum Noir pencil to colour the image.  He was cut out along the black line and to empasise the image, I used black peel offs in the corners and for the sentiment.

Creative Moments Challenge – New or anything goes

This week’s challenge at Creative Moments is Sponsored by Sheepski.

The image used for today’s card is called Ratty and puts me in mind of the Terry Pratchett Character “Death of Rats”.  Now I know this birthday card will not be to everyone’s tastes but this card is for my sister.  She is a Discworld fanatic and will be tickled with this card.

The backing paper is from a Gorjuss collection and the sentiment from a Forever Friends black and Gold kit.  The digistamp is available here.

I’m beginning to feel a bit like Christmas!  How could I not when  have such a delightful Christmassy image to colour?  The image is called Curly Sue Victorian Christmas and is available from Lacy Sunshine.  Do go to Creative Moments to see the inspiration for  the new challenge.

I have used papers from Hot off the Press to collate the 8 x 8 card and the sentiment is an embellished wooden laser cut.  I have finished with some glittery ribbon and paper poinsettias from my stash.
