I got this amazing Digi from Fabrika Fantasy! I decided to use the pre-coloured image and fussy cut it out. I used a template from the Silhouette design store for the UK flag and cut it twice for my background. I finished by adding a sentiment and the dragon with 3d craft foam.

I got this amazing Digi from Star Stampz! I found some beautiful paper in my stash with glittered butterflies and coloured Kimono to coordinate. Before layering the sentiment I embossed the backing shape with a cherry blossom tree. I then used my spellbinders die to add more cherry blossoms behind Kimono before adding her with 3D craft foam.
On the inside of my card I added a peacock cut from the same paper. This die is from Crafters Companion Kimono range.

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #110 Red, White & Blue. I found this box card template on the silhouette store and thought it would be great for a male card with a simple digi behind it. I found this digi in my stash and knew it was perfect. I mounted it with 3D craft foam to make it pop off the background paper before attaching the front of the box card.

I got this amazing Digi from Julia Spiri and I adore it! I decided that this beautiful image needed to be pride of place on a card. I fussy cut her after colouring her with pencils. I glued some patterned paper to a shaped card and cut it out so it matched the previous card shape. Next I embossed a scalloped shape with a Sheena embossing folder before mounting the sentiment onto with 3d craft foam. I added candi around the edge of the card and on the corners of the base.

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #108 Ladies Only. For my card I went all pink with beautiful paper from Craftwork cards. I paired this with this fab digi which I also coloured pink. I used some banner dies to add some interest to the background and used some coordinating paper on them. Pop over to Simply Create Too and join in our challenge!
On the inside of the card I added a pop up butterfly which I cut from the same paper pad.

What am I going to make for a green and purple colour combination challenge? I thought to myself but then I saw a bendy card design in the silhouette store. This paired with my mum asking me to make a card for a new neighbour and this card was born! I actually love this card and the colour combination.
I got my amazing Digi from Kenny K! As soon as I saw her I knew she was made to lean on a pint of Guinness. I coloured her up with ProMarkers adding lots of green in the spirit of St Patrick's day. I found a pint file and the sentiment in the silhouette store and paired them. I cut the glass from acetate which you can see she is leaning on. I finished my card with more files from the silhouette store and some candi.
For the inside of my card I used another silhouette store file to create a pop up of four leaf clovers.

For Simply Create Too's challenge this month - #104 Use Green Only, I created this simple card. I love my brusho backgrounds at the moment so decided to make one for my green only DT make. I used leaf green and sea green and spritzed with water, I love the result! After it had dried I used an edge'ables die for my sentiment. My die cutter has been a little neglected since I got my cameo so I had to blow off the dust first!
I cut my dragonfly on green glittered cardstock and added my gems to the bottom corner. I wanted to give effect of the dragonfly moving so I added a crystal swirl to finish it off.
I hope you like my card! Pop over to Simply Create Too to see the other DT makes and join in the challenge yourself!

My digi is Cupido from Zuri Artsy Craftsy and is adorable! I decided to colour this little cutie and pop him in a pop up card. I did this by using a blank template, mounting some coordinating paper and adding some hearts. I put Cupido and the hearts onto some acetate to make them appear as if they are floating. I finished my card with a love sentiment on glitter cardstock.

This fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #102 Love/Valentines. I found this fantastic little guy over at Treasure Box Designs. I cut him out on my chosen cardstock and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz faded jeans and worn lipstick. I gave the love bug some dimension by layering him up using 3d foam. I wanted to give my card some extra bling so I cut the heart in red mirror board. I cut some extra for added embellishment.

I got my amazing digi from Smeared Ink! I coloured it with two tones of blue ProMarkers. I was very lucky because Santa brought me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas so I created a bendy card template and cut it out to create my card blank. I then used a scalpel to follow the bendy lines to cut my patterned paper. My lovely neice made me some homemade sugar scrub so I reused the pheasants feathers from there. Finally I added some gems at the top and a perfect sentiment.
My new things for this project are:
A new fold
Using my cameo to create the card blank
A new image from somewhere I hadn't heard of
A brand new paper pad
