Global Design Project - 'Theme Challenge' #gdp067

Welcome to my blog, and to my last creation of 2016! 
The Global Design Project #gdp067 has a Theme Challenge - 'Trees'.


My creation is a forest full...

 With some 'Foxy Friends' playing hide & seek! 
And a 'Happy Birthday' card for our neighbour 'Foxy'.
This was such a fun card to make, and the 'Foxy Friends Bundle' is such a cute Bundle! 

Hope you have a wonderful last day of 2016, and wishing you all a Happy New Year! D x

'Encouragement' - Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight

I have a Sneak Peek for you...,
and I am taking part in Kylie's 'International Visual Blog Hop'!
You are visiting me in Australia, and 'Welcome' to my blog.
Please vote for my project; the top ten winners will get to be part of an International Blog Hop.
You can VOTE here.


Our theme for this Highlight is 'Encouragement'. We all need a little lift every now and then, and my project is all about inspiration and chasing your dream.
Here is the Sneak peek I was telling you about...


'LET'S TACO 'BOUT HOW AWESOME YOU ARE!'
How adorable is this stampset??? And the sentiment on the taco?
The 'Tasty Trucks' stampset will be available in the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, January 4th 2017. (Only a few more sleeps!)
When you spend $90AUD this cute set could be yours!

A little bit about my 'Taco Truck'...
Have you seen the DreamWorks movie 'Turbo'?
My Taco Truck is the 'Dos Bros Tacos' Truck - owned & operated by the brothers, Tito & Angelo.
When Turbo zooms into Tito's life, Tito is inspired and the two kindred spirits head off to chase an incredible dream.

 ‘Turbo’; a speed-obsessed garden snail who dreams of being the World's greatest race car driver who wants to win the Indianapolis 500. He gets his chance when a freak accident imbues him with high-octane speed. But he soon learns he'll need the help of his friends if he's going to go the distance.


It is quite an adventure for *Turbo – an underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.
*'Turbo' - inside the card is from 'Better Than Email' stampset.

Thankyou for visiting my blog today and make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an International Blog Hop.


I am hoping to post a video tutorial on how to make the Taco sitting on top of the Taco Truck. Would you like to know how?
Let me know by leaving me a comment - I need a little 'Encouragement' for my first video tutorial.

Global Design Project - 'Sketch Challenge' #gdp066

Hi there, and welome to my blog.
If you visit me regularly, you may know that I love challenging myself by entering Challenges every week with the Global Design Project.
This week I was really stuck on a creation for this weeks 'Sketch Challenge' #gdp066 - I was overthinking it. Do you do the same?

I had an idea. Tried it, and meh. Another idea came to mind, and again, meh! So, with the third idea I am pretty happy with how my creation has turned out.

A tropical Christmas floral wreath using the 'Botanical Builder Framelits Dies'. 
I used the gorgeous 'Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper' & coordinating 'Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack' in Sweet Sugarplum for the bow.

'Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper' makes for a lovely wreath to build on. And a sentiment of PEACE from the 'Holly Jolly Greetings' stampset.

Thankyou for visiting, and don't forget about the Year-End Closeouts - Save up to 60% on select products. Details below.
Have a wonderful day. D x

Global Design Project - 'Colour Challenge' #gdp065

Don't you just love a Sneak peek?
I have been wanting to bust open one of the cutest stampsets that you will be able to get as of January 2017, during Sale-A-Bration!
The Global Design Project #gdp065 have a 'Colour Challenge' this week, and I think my chosen stampset is perfect for the GDP Colours: 
http://www.global-design-project.com/2016/12/global-design-project-065-colour.html

I have made 3 cards, and I hope you love them as much as I do?
I have given you a Sneak peek at the Sale-A-Bration stampset 'Hey, Chick!'
My friend has 3 chickens; 'Nutmeg', 'Nugget' & 'Jasmine' and I couldn't help but name these girls the same!
I just LOVE this stampset so much, and 'Hey, Chick!'
is FREE with any $90AUD product purchase during Sale-A-Bration starting January 4th-March 31st 2017.
Who wants to get something for FREE? Not long to wait now... or you can 'Join my Team' and get your Starter Kit full of any product for $169!!!

'Nutmeg' wants you to 'Have a happy day!'
I stamped all 3 chickens using 'Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad' onto 'Shimmery White' cardstock - a wonderful cardstock for Watercoluring & using 'Blender Pens' for colouring.
Layering with some 'Early Espresso' cardstock to frame the image.

 'Nugget' - such a fun name that suits this little chicken so much! 'Hey, Chick!'
I waterwashed the chickens with an 'Aqua Painter' and 'Crumb Cake Ink Refill' - dropping the ink into the lid of the 'Crumb Cake Stampin' Pad' and smooshing the images.
Using a 'Sponge Dauber', I daubed around the edges of the DSP  with 'Crumb Cake' to give it a lift from the coordinating cardstock underneath.
'Jasmine' thinks 'You're a good egg!'
I coloured all the 'feathers' & darker lines using a 'Blender Pen' and 'Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad'.
And 'Real Red & Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers' for the combs & beaks, and feet.
I edged the chickens with a light colouring using a 'Blender Pen' and 'Crumb Cake' ink.
And a lovely bit of 'Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine' in Real Red with a bow to finish my cards.

Thankyou for visiting me today, and for checking out my cute chickens.
*Don't forget: Sale-A-Bration is less than 1 month away and the 'Hey, Chick!' stampset (along with other goodies) are FREE with every $90AUD purchase Jan 4th- March 31st, 2017.
