Guest Designer at Imagine That Creative Playground Blog - Summer card

Hi Crafty Friends,

I was lucky enough to win a guest designer spot at Imagine That Creative Playground blog. They have such gorgeous images I was honored to play with their digital images, backgrounds, papers and sentiment sets. 

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I used the PNG files so I could move the items around on the beach to suit my card. I made the girl on the card the same size as a black & white version so I could colour her and her towel myself, fussy cut her and paste onto the scene. I added the PNG sentiment that comes along with it too before printing. This background is so versatile, you can use it with any beachy images so it's definitely worth buying this set. You can buy it HERE. Also, they have monthly challenges where you can win sets - click HERE to go to the blog.


Thank you so much to Kris for letting me choose this generous digi set to play with for my guest spot, I love it and will use it again for sure!

Thank you to my special followers for dropping by. I'm going away so I'm not able to add this to any challenge blogs like I usually do.

Isn't this just the cutest scene of monkeys? I didn't colour this one but I added the blue background for the sky and punched out some little flowers to go in the trees.

Birthday wishes elephant card (Bugaboo image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I played around with this image putting it onto some background digi papers (from Scrapper's Delights, the "sky" and the grass are different images). I then added the Bugaboo elephant to the scene and lightened the image to grey lines. I coloured the cute image up with my Copics. To finish the card off I added some punched out flowers, a toadstool and a couple of hearts.

A Lovely Friend card (Digistamp Boutique image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm not sure how many elephants are a tan brown colour hehe but I thought he'd look cuter this colour, I think there's something about an artistic licence lol. This is another gorgeous image from Digistamp Boutique who no longer have a website although I'm not sure if they're selling through another company now.

Super Girl Mel Saves the Day card (Mari image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I made this card for one of my lovely classmates (I'm currently learning interior decoration and surprisingly my knowledge with making cards has come in handy when it comes to colour combos, design, scale and proportion, etc lol). Anyway, she was so helpful when we were doing a team assignment I just had to say thank you in the best way I know how, make a personalised card! She loved it and said she'd keep it forever so that's always nice to hear :)

I used red glitter paper to die cut the sentiment and stars. The background was created with a stencil and some distress oxide inks.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
