Createful Heart June Challenge.

Published June 17, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Here is my card for the June challenge over at Createful Heart. As this is the challenge before Independence Day I decided to use USA flag waving to honour my many American friends and I have loads of them!! I have simply used the image in two sizes and mounted on some silver mirri card. To finish the design I used a Tim Holtz stamp and mounted the whole design onto black card and accented with red, white and blue pearls. I hope you like it.

Lots of love



Through the Craft Room Door Challenge – 9th June

Published June 9, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello crafting friends and welcome to another challenge which has been posted on Through the Craft Room Door, which has been sponsored this week by DRS designs.


For the challenge this week I have used the image Daffodil – Butterfly- Circle. I printed this image onto my chosen medium and then coloured in with my Spectrum Noir markers. Once satisfied with my image I, chose an 8×8 card and layered some black and yellow paper on it to complement the lovely daffodils. The sentiment was one I had laying around so I used that. It is a bright and cheerful card, and should put a smile on the face of anyone receiving it.

So if you would like to join our challenge this week please pop over to Through the Craft Room Door and join in the fun. The DT would love you to share your makes with us.

Much love and see you soon

Hello again and welcome to another week over at Through the Craft Room Door where this week we are sponsored by Wink Wink Ink

The DT have come up with some wonderful samples and if you’d like to take a look then please visit Through the Craft Room Door, and whilst you are there why don’t you enter our anything goes challenge?

I have kept my design simple.  I simply printed the image of the Narwhal out and cut it out.  I managed to find some lovely blue textured paper in my stash and mounted it on that, adding a sentiment and some pearls.

Through the Craft Room Door – ATG Tuesday May 12th 2020 sponsored by The Cutting Cafe

Published May 15, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to the challenge from Tuesday which I am very late in putting up this week.

This week our challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door is sponsored by The cutting Cafe  and for me this was a first.  I am terrified of my brother Scan n Cut at the best of times but this week I had to download and use these files to make a shadow box card.  Cue a lot of bad language but I eventually did it.  I even used some Hello Kitty scrapbooking paper which is years old and which I bought for my niece.  Thought it would be a pleasant change.  So everything I have used is Hello Kitty.  As you can see I managed to make the card and it doesn’t look to shabby at all.  I should try and use my Scan n Cut more…I have said that a lot recently!!

I hope you like what I have created but do pop over to the blog and see what my crafty team have made, they have outdone themselves this time!!  Don’t forget our challenges are always anything goes and you are in with a chance of being our randomly chosen winner or chosen as Top 3.

Until next time

Through the Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge – April 28th 2020 sponsored by Sheepski Designs

Published April 28, 2020 by littleamanda7609



So today I am sharing my latest make for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Through the Craft Room Door

I coloured the lovely sunflowers image using spectrum noir alcohol pens which I then  matched with  background I had already coloured in.  I then mounted and layered the image and put it on the card together with a Dreamees custom made MDF sentiment which is the Welsh for Happy Birthday.  I think its a really jolly happy card for anyone at this time of the year.

Come and join us and enter our Anything Goes challenge this week.



All fun challenges DT Challenge number 6

Published April 28, 2020 by littleamanda7609

This is my latest DT make for All Fun Challenges which this week has been sponsored by Jeremiah Ketner Fine Art


This was a lovely image to colour in and I have used my Spectrum Noir markers.  For the base of the card I used some backgrounds that I had coloured in and stored for use.  These are from a Spectrum Noir colouring pad and with their little glitter bits they make a lovely background for cards.  After mounting the image onto black and plum coloured cards I mounted the design onto the background and for a change I added a Dreamees custom made MDF Happy Birthday in Welsh.

I hope that you like this latest challenge make and stay tuned for more



Through the Craft Room Door – Week beginning April 14th 2020

Published April 14, 2020 by littleamanda7609

Hello there and welcome to another DT posting from Through the Craft Room Door.

This week there are two sponsors for Team A and here I am to show you what I have created with my chosen images.  First up is the image from DRS Designs

Women Are Angels by DRS designs

This image is called Women are Angels

Instead of making a card this time I decided to use some MDF and make a plaque.  The plaque is my Dreamees and I painted it with a colour called Blue Lagoon by Cadence.  I printed out the image and just added some ink to make it slightly discoloured and I placed that in the middle.  Then I used some new stamps by Dreamees from an exclusive Create and Craft Members gift called True Friends and I stamped on parchment and coloured with Dreamees watercolour pencils. To finish the design off I used Dreamees pearls around the edge and in the centre of the flowers.  I hope you like it.

DRS are kindly giving a $20 store voucher as their prize


Our second sponsor this week is QKR by Stamp on It 


April Showers by Stamp on It

This image is called April Showers

For this design I made the background myself using a stamp by Phill Martin from his first ever magazine box.  I stamped it and then masked to make more of the image.  I wanted something cheery so I chose to use some orange and yellow tones and using Dreamees watercolour pencils I made my background.  I then mounted this on black and some orange paper which was also from the Phill Martin magazine box.  I used the orange paper to mount the wording on and the made an extra large black matt to mount it on and used a Dreamees MDF heart which I coloured orange.  I then added the peals in a subtle yellow.  The whole design was then mounted onto a black card.  I hope that you like this

Stamp on It are kindly giving  two images as their prize


So would you like to be in with not one, but  two chances to be our randomly chosen winner??  If so then please head on to our blog and enter the challenge.  We look forward seeing what you create. Through the Craft Room Door Anything Goes Blog Challenge

Much love

Our sponsor for Challenge #6




I am just a little late in adding my creation for the challenge which has been sponsored by Morgan’s Art World.  You can see the challenge post right here – All Fun Challenges Challenge #6

I must admit that I was well out of my comfort zone using this image but that is what a challenge is about.


Dinky Baby Dragon by Morgan’s Artworld

This image is called Dinky Baby Dragon and a link for purchase details can be found here

To make this card I coloured the image in using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and then cut the image out.  I raided my paper and card stash and found some black and gold card to use as the base and from there I used black and gold to matt and layer and finished off with a sentiment from my stash.  The card is 6×6 so its a nice size for the image.


So if you want to be in with a chance of winning some images from Morgan’s Art World then please follow the challenge for the blog and enter.


Much love
