September challenge All Dressed up

Hello everyone

The challenge is back!!!!!

We are back at All Dressed up with a brand new monthly challenge. It is (as always) anything goes using an All dressed up image, with a chance to win 3 of Wendy's stunning images (including the new ones)

I have for my inspiration used one of the little Autumn girls (they come in a three but they also separate out beautifully!)

And here she is....

Coloured with promarkers and Spectrum noir pencils over the top, The card blank is a Tattered Lace die which folds into the gorgeous centre stepper card.

Patterned paper is from Nitwits Autumn collection.  The leaves are an Elizabeth Craft die, coloured with distress inks, and finished with stickles

Hop over to our blog here to see the fabulous DT inspiration and details of the challenge.

New release September

Hello everyone

Ooooo its that time of the month again when we showcase some of the new release images from all dressed up.  They are all available in our Etsy shop here along with all the other amazing images drawn by Wendy Burns.

Our DT have made some fabulous projects on both our blog and our FB page for inspiration, please check them out!

and our images are:

A to Z

A splash of Autumn colour

Time to Shine
Warm hand warm heart

This month I used A to Z, this is perfect for a new baby card, or separate out the letters and make bunting all wall hangings.

The photos don't do this justice as its hard to photograph acetate (LOL, although I tried from many, many angles!)  I coloured the images in yellow and blue promarkers before mounting on a piece of 6 x 6 card.  The front was an acetate cover, with a LoTV sentiment along the side cut into a banner shape.

Don't forget we have a DT call over also on our blog we're looking for some new ladies to join our team.

Look forward to seeing you very soon.  Thank you always for the comments, it cheers my day to receive the ping in my inbox!!

All Dressed up - exciting news!

Hello everyone.

After a bit of a break, All Dressed up is back up and running!  there is some very, very exciting news over on our blog. 

We had a few members leave and due to personal reasons our DT co-ordinators also stepped down, so I have stepped up the challenge to take over the co-ordination of the blog team with the help of our lovely Liz!

Because of the gaps, we need some new DT members so we're holding a DT call over on our blog.

If this isn't for you - we are also holding a competition.  You don't have to make anything to enter (but of course we still love to see your creations so drop them on of Facebook page if you do!) 

to enter this competition all we want you to tell us, if which All dressed up image you would like to win and why.  Leave us a comment at the bottom of the blog and on 15th Sept we randomly draw a winner for three images including the one you wanted.

To help our new DT along we have placed some inspiration from the current dressies on our blog.

check it out here: All Dressed Up Blog

Our current Facebook challenge to win some of Wendy's gorgeous images is here with the theme Pastel colours.

Check out all of the available images in the Etsy store

Here's my inspiration using a stamp called Sandy Beach

I embossed a plain white background with tiny hearts.  the papers are from a now discontinued Lili of the Valley paper pad.  The banner is a die coloured with promarkers.  I coloured the image with promarkers, and the background with distress inks (I printed out a second copy of the caravan and used it as a mask)  finally the postmark sentiment is also LoTV.

please hop on over we cant wait to see the entries for our new DT.
