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.
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
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.

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
Today I am sharing the make for the DT on Through the Craft Room Door. We didn’t have an image from our sponsors this week so I made this card and love it so much that I am using it.
This beautiful image is from a stamp set called Poppies of Amethyst by Molly Harrison which I really loved when I saw it. I knew that to make this image prettier I should use my dinky inkies by Dreamees to watercolour the image. I stamped the image onto watercolour paper and then chose all the purple based colours in the set of Dinky Inkies I had. Some of the ink had sparkle and with the ink that didn’t I just added bits to make a new colour for the image. Using Dinky Inky reinker ink for this is marvellous and it goes a long way, and is superb quality. I didn’t stamp directly onto the base card. I made my base layer from the watercolour card so I could use some of the butterfly and flowers.
I chose the image Love Bugs which you can have pre coloured or blank. I loved the colouring on the already coloured version and chose that to use.
The card stock is all from my stash but the MDF hearts are from Dreamees. I coloured the hearts using Spectrum Noir Sparkle ink in Solar Red. When dried I used a sentiment from a Hunkydory stamp set (Love is In the Air) and added the ribbon to finish.
I hope that you like the image and others that my team have used. Check out the blog for the DT inspiration and to find out how you could be in with a chance of winning a gift certificate for the Wink Wink Ink store with $15 follow the link Through the Craft Room Door Anything Goes Challenge

This is my latest make for the Winter Wonderland DT challenge using Christmas Candle by Sheepski Designs. I thought about a card but I wasn’t sure and then thought I know I shall use a piece of MDF and some lights as well as Christmas foliage. This trellis artboard is so pretty and I painted it with Dreamees acrylic paint pen in Gold. Once dry I added my lights and then glued my image in place adding Christmas ribbon and some foliage to it. A different take on a Christmas I think.
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!!!

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.

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.
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.
