Cute n Crafty Christmas Design Team Posting for 21st August – sponsored by Polkadoodles

Published August 23, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to another one of my Design Team makes, this time for the Cute n Crafty Christmas Challenge blog.  I hope you will pop over and take part in our anything goes Christmas challenge where you could be chosen to win some images from our sponsor Polkadoodles.

Here is my design this week using Winnie Angels Decorations Up.

Such a pretty design it would have been such a pity to have done anything else but a card.  I used a combination of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Inks and Spectrum Noir Glitter Inks to complete this design. Which I then mounted on red card and a base of silver mirror board.  The sentiment is by Dreamees and the roses I had on my desk after using for another project and I just thought they would look cute.

I hope you like the simple card I’ve made and I look forward to your next visit.  And please do check out the blog and enter!!!



Through the Craft Room Door DT posting – August 20th – Sponsored by Hetty Clare

Published August 20, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to another DT posting from Design Team A on Through the Craft Room Door Challenges – and this week we are sponsored by Hetty Clare, who you can find over on Etsy. Hetty Clare Etsy Store 
Designer Helen says” I’m Helen Pearce and I am an illustrator, teacher and digi stamp designer. I work under the name of Hetty Clare.
I discovered Etsy in May 2018 when I was looking for another outlet for my art. I discovered digi stamps and knew that it was the perfect choice for the kind of creative drawing I love to do and Etsy is the perfect platform to reach a worldwide audience.
Being invited to take part in blogs and competitions is a real pleasure as you get to speak to other creative people from around the world and see the amazing craft results of others using your digi stamps.

We are so grateful for the sponsorship this week and if you take up our Anything Goes challenge you could be in with a chance of winning 3 images from the Hetty Clare Store.

For the challenge this week I used this very fun image called Wakey Wakey.  I’m not a cat owner (I am owned by a dog) but I know friends with cats and this image is just right.

I printed my image out onto some Neenah classic crest card and then looked at it for a while!!!  I decided to use my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens for the image as I wanted a range of bold colour to use.  I also thought a Dreamees sentiment would be good on the card too. Colouring in this image took quite a while and looking at it now I think I could have soaked in the colour much more!! Once my image had dried I cut around it as the image is circular and I didn’t have any dies I thought would look any good with this.  The card is a 8inch x 8 inch card and I used another piece of 8×8 to mount the paper on which if I remember is from my Dreamees stash.  I then mounted the image on there and added a rough twine bow and the sentiment.

I hope you like the image even though I am critical of the way it is now looking on computer from here.

Please do join us over on our Through the Craft Room Door challenge blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for this challenge and do please enter our anything goes challenge.

Winter Wonderland Design Team posting – August 2nd 2019

Published August 2, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Hello!!  Welcome to another post showing you the latest of my Design Team creations, this time for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog.  This challenge we have been sponsored by LeAnnsWorld and we have 2 digs to be won if you pop over to the blog and enter into our anything goes challenge.

For my card I chose to use Decorating LeAnn

This is such a cute design and after I had printed her out I chose to use a combination of Sakura and Spectrum Noir to colour her in.  The Sakura is mainly used on the garland string and the stocking and the rest are Spectrum Noir alcohol inks and Spectrum Noir Metallic.  I used a 7×7 card base and used some paper from a Tim Holtz Christmas pad I have here. The image is mounted on some silver mirri card and then mounted onto the card.   I then wanted something else to complete the design so I chose a sentiment from a recent selection by Dreamees and also some poinsettia which is from a CD by Dreamees and which I had stashed in my “flowers already made box” (a box containing a mixture of handmade flowers which I can dip into anytime).

I am happy with the way in which this has turned out and please do pop over to the blog to see what my other DT members have made using their digis, and take our challenge.



Cute N Crafty Christmas Design Team Post Challenge 16

Published July 24, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to my DT post for this Challenge 16 on Cute N Crafty Christmas, Christmas all year round here but at least we get the crafters thinking about their designs and not leaving everything to the end of November.  We hope that you are inspired.  The design team have used images from Treasure Box Designs for this challenge so why don’t you pop over to the blog and see what the DT have come up with and enter one of your Christmas makes into our challenge.  We would love to see what you create.

Here’s my DT make for this challenge.

I have kept this design fairly simple this time, focusing on the main image.

I printed out the design to A6 and then proceeded to colour it in with my Dreamees Watercolour pencils as they have a lovely silver one which is divine. I used Sakura Gelly Pen with a slight sparkle for the Halo and the outline of the wings. Once everything had dried I mounted the image onto some mire card which I have recently bought from Kanban Crafts and used a larger piece for the base. The spare ends were used to back the sentiment which is from a selection from Dreamees.  The ribbon was something I had left over from a previous make and was just enough to make the bow and go across the design.  A simple card but a pretty one I think.

Pop over to the blog to upload your anything goers Christmas make – the design team are really looking forward to seeing what you have created.

Through the Craft Room Door DT Post – Team A Tuesday 23rd July

Published July 23, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Hello and welcome to another post for the TTCRD Design Team A who are posting this week over on the TTCRD blog.  Our images and sponsor for this week are by UK based Sheepski Designs.  The design team have come up with many different takes on their chosen images so please pop over to the Through the Craft Room Door Blog to take a look and whilst there why don’t you add one of your latest makes and be in with a chance of being randomly selected for a prize donated by our sponsor.  You could even be chosen as one of our top 3 makes of the week.  We would love to see all your creations and we appreciate every entry made.

So here is my design for this week.



This is bold and bright and very different from what I would usually make.  I initially made a mistake in printing the design off as A4 but I really liked it and decided to work with that size and create a piece of artwork around it.

The image was coloured in using Dinky Inky Sparkles by Dreamees.  You cannot see the beautiful sheen and shimmer in the photo but I can assure you that it does sparkle.  Next I took a canvas sized 14 inches by 11 inches and washed it with Spectrum Noir Glitter Ink in Moonlight.  Even though these can be diluted with water I decided to use the neat ink.  It was a hot day when I was painting it on and I chose to dry this in the sun. The effect was lovely.  Once everything was dry I mounted the design onto some Glitter Cardstock by Dreamees and I finished the edge with ribbon also from Dreamees.  To finish the design I also used Dreamees Silver AB Pearls and randomly placed these on the canvas.

I hope that you like the design and I please do pop over to Through the Craft Room Door blog and add your anything go make.

Delayed DT post – Cute N Crafty DT

Published July 15, 2019 by littleamanda7609

Here is another post that I didn’t get around to doing because of my health and it would have been my first for the Cute N Crafty DT.  I’ll just show you my finished make and tell you what I used.

We were given an image from My Besties and worked around that.  I coloured the image using Dreamees watercolour pencils. The MDF is by Dreamees and the paper is from a pad by Tim Holtz.  The ribbon is from stash and the poinsettias are made using a Dreamees CD which was printed onto Vellum and assembled.  The Stamens are also from a selection by Dreamees.  Hatpins are from stash.

Thank you once again for your understanding with the blog post delay



Delayed DT post – Through the Craft Room Door Design Team

Published July 15, 2019 by littleamanda7609

So this should have aired last Tuesday when our DT posted on the main website but due to serious health concerns I haven’t really been able to get stuff done.  I’d love to say it is all sorted but it isn’t, however, I have plenty of craft to do and other bits and pieces and I will be back posting regularly. I unfortunately had to miss one DT post completely but they understand and I’ll be on the next one.
I won’t bore you with what I did to create this but all the products used ,except the bees (Dreamees) , are by Crafters Companion, with papers and ribbon from my stash.  However I wanted to share my make and I’ll be back soon with some more posts.

I’d like to thank the DTs for their love and understanding and to all my wonderful friends, who have been there.
