#137 Dots

Sally is hosting for this challenge and she would like you to go DOTTY, so something that has obvious dots on.

Some inspiration from the team

I have used a cutting file to cut the birdhouse and decorated it with dotty papers around the base, some buttons, paper flowers and a needle felted bird.


I've made a card using the Crafter's Companion Paintbox Poppets CDRom, adding the sentiment to the ribbon and then cutting another copy to layer on top. I used two flowers and an extra centre to layer the flower.

I just love this cute little hippo from Magnolia, her name is Gloria!  I have coloured her with Copics and used some dotty papers from My Minds Eye - Cut & Paste

I have grown to love Tatty Twinkles and I have used one of the later stamps here. I coloured here to match some paper that I had in my stash.

I have used a Funky Kits Stamp called Purrfect Day, I have had this ages
it is the first time I have used it.

I have used Hunkydory Birds Of Britain Collection

I used two different techniques to create the dotted patterns on my spring card. I also used some ribbon with dots and some butterflies with dots!

I have used a couple of dotty stencils from Clarity and a stamp from Woodware to create my 'Dotty' birthday card.

I created my dotty background by stencilling with three different shades of DIs over some Imagination Crafts paper. I also added dots to my 'Hepburn Dress'. See my blog for more details.

I went totally 'dotty' for my card, using an image and papers from Crafter's Companion's Rachelle Anne Miller CDs, along with my A4 Dottie embossing folder!! Even the ribbon is dotty!! Cxx

I spend so much on crafty goodies that I feel better when I can use things I already have to make something nice.  My card was made using scrap card from my bits box, and some embossing folders.  I also used a couple of stamps and some ribbon I found in my stash.

I love a black and white colour scheme, with a pop of bright red!  The advantage of this theme is that you can use up odds and ends of your papers (a lot of mine seem to have dots on the reverse of the papers!)

#136 Wings

Mary is hosting today and wants to see something with Wings.. birds, planes, fairies, insects or even a steampunk clock, as long as it includes Wings

This is how the team interpreted Mary's theme


I have used a Tatty Twinkles stamp called Moonbeam and coloured it using a mixture of Spectrum Noir pens and Promarkers.


An Easter card from me - using an stamp by Crafty Individuals which incorporates three sets of wings! I 'inked' the stamp with watercolour markers and added some further colour with Promarkers. I completed the card with hand-made flowers and some lace that I crocheted.

I have used 'Tilly Fairy' digi stamp from Saturated Canary - coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens.


I have used Hunkydory card collection
Birds of Britain.
Butterflies for my wings themed card.  I have used Kaisercraft Chanteuse Collection and lots of fussy cutting!


I have used an old Stampendous Butterfly stamp set, some masking and Distress inks for my winged project.

I have used an old Owl stamp set from Personal Impressions to make a Criss Cross card.

I made a tag with distress inks, texture paste and a couple of stamps from Crafty Individuals and Paper Artsy. Please see my blog for details

I used a digistamp I found on my pc (sorry, origin unknown!) which I coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils and scrap card from my stash for embellishments.
