A Spoonfull of Sugar and another Sneak Peek


On A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge  this week our theme was chosen by Michelle and is called:

So let us see your Halloween cards and creations.  Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo and one lucky player will win a $10.00 Gift Certificate to spend in their store.

I am not very good at Halloween cards they are really not my thing (I like sweet and cute as you all know) so I really struggled with this card.  The papers are a Download from Polka Doodles Halloween Bundle, and the Background, Mummy and Pumpkins are Black and White Digi Images from the Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons CD, I have used Copics to colour the images, distress the background edge with Black Soot Distress Ink, and embossed with Crystal EP.  I have used Glossy Accents on the Windows.  I have also entered this for Top Tips Tuesday  where they have a theme this week "Any thing Goes"

Copics used:
Bandages: N2, N3, C00
Pumpkins, Windows: YR16, YR15, YR00, C10, YG99, YG91

Here is my second Sneak Peek from the New Crafters Companion SWALK release this one is called as you can guess “Groovy Gran” and I lurve her!!!!!!!


I have again used backing papers from the New SWALK CD the Damask Paper at the back is my favourite from the whole CD and is going to feature a lot on my cards.  I have used the plaid paper to punch my flowers, and coloured the image with Copics.  I coloured this a while ago and I know I made a note of the copics I used but can I find the note!!!  I am just confirming here what you all know, I am the most disorganised crafter ever.
Oooo I forgot to tell you too, I have found the PERFECT, and I mean PERFECT card for stamping and colouring with your alcohol pens, such as Copics and Promarkers, you will be able to find it on the Crafters Companion Website from Monday, it’s called Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, its 216gsm, is ultra ultra smooth, and perfect for seamless blending. Even better than that its only £3.99 per pack for 20 sheets – trust me, if you love your promarkers and copics – you need it,  I know all of us on the DT are just blown away by it.


Don't forget the Crafters Companion Blog Hop (see post below on how to get started) all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher is follow the hop, pop a post on your own blog and leave a link back to it on Mr Linky on the Crafters Companion News, Views and Inspiration Blog.  So do come and join us
