Wild Soxes

I love using things differently, so this time stamped on patterned paper to make wild socks to go with a man's gift of wild socks.  On the outer socks the paper pattern doesn't show as well because of the black ink.  The real socks are big polka dotted and very bright and fun!















Sock Stamps: Rosie's Studio
Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts
Also: tiny wooden pegs, twine, lime EP (sentiment and edge of white card), 3D foam, black pen for smiley

Hello Girl

Such a pretty look with a gardening theme.  I paper-pieced her clothes in gingham but thought she deserved a bit of bling as well.

Seas the day

Aren't cardswaps fun?  I made this for a NZ cardswap with a sea theme.
I love these digipapers' design and colour - a smoky blue.  I just got the tag die and had to use it.  The stencilled waves on the blue tag and sentiment bar are the negative of a die cut sponged with distress ink.

Wave die: Spellbinders
Shell dies: Memory Box
Negative of diecut: Couture Creations

National Colours

This is such a cute unicorn and I like the sentiment that comes with the image. The challenge is to use national colours. 

Join us for this challenge at Come And Get It challenges, here: cagichallenge

My image comes from our generous sponsor Bugaboo:  bugaboostamps
Image result for nz flag free pics

Here is our NZ flag:
As seen when we won the America's Cup boat race.


Image result for silver fern nz




Alternatively, our national sporting colours are black & white.  You may be more familiar with the black ground and silver fern, probably more recognised internationally than our flag!

Crocodile Smiles

You must have heard the saying "never smile at a crocodile",  well this one likes to make you smile.  It's winter here, hence the scarf.

Our challenge at the Crafters Café this time is USE WOOL, join in the fun here:
crafterscafeblogchallenge  DT Badge

Thanks to our sponsor Dr Digi who provided the fun image :
doctor-digi-alistair-the-alligator

Image: Doctor Digi
Sentiment stamp: Heidi Swapp
Star stamp: Grace Taylor
Punch:
Embossing: Zing - Lime
Also: White gel pen, Copics, wool scraps, sequins, 3D Kindyglitz gem clear


The croc is paper pieced with dotty paper, and I knitted the scarf with a scrap of wool.  Image partly coloured with Copics, highlighted with white gel pen.  The teeth coated with 3D Kindyglitz gem clear, the sentiment stamped and heat embossed. Partly cut around his hand so it could wrap over the scarf and fixed it with 3D foam.  The white card is punched all around to look like it's been chomped with those sharp teeth, stars stamped and sequins applied ( I think they look like scales).
