Challenge #244 is sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios who have some fabulous digi stamps.


The design team were kindly gifted an image to use and I was very lucky to be given the  Close to My Heart digi stamp which is super cute!  I coloured her in with alcohol pens and added some detail/shading with my polychromos pencils.


Here’s my finished card…


I hope you are all having a fab week and that you will join us in the challenge over at the Aud Sentiments blog.


Alphabet Challege – L for lemons or limes

Happy Friday crafty people!  How has your week been? I hope you found some time for crafting.  If you are looking for something crafty to be inspired by we have a new Alphabet Challenge launching this morning.  The prompt is L for lemons or limes, perfect for the summer.

I pulled out some papers that had come with a Tonic Studios magazine which were perfect for this challenge.  I fussy cut out the panel for the front and arranged some different panels of the lemon print papers with some lime green and white card stock.  I finished it off with a couple of adhesive gems and die cut lemon slices.


I hope you like my lemon card and that you will join us for the challenge, I love seeing how people interpret the prompts in so many different ways.  Thank you for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope to see you again soon.

Alphabet Challenge – J for Joy fold (or joy!)

Happy Friday crafty people!  I hope you are getting set for the weekend.  If you are looking for some crafting inspiration then you are in luck as there is a new Alphabet Challenge! We are now up to J and you have a choice, either Joy or a joy fold and I went for the joy fold for my project.

A joy fold card is like two cards rolled into one.  I used two square card bases (10 cm and 15 cm).  To decorate the larger card I cut 7.5 cm from the front panel to allow space for the smaller card to fold over this flap.  I added some patterned papers onto the front panel and the inside panel of the larger card (layered up on a lilac card).  I then glued the back of the smaller card to the inside of the larger card.  I decorated the front of the smaller card with coordinated papers.

To add some decoration I fussy cut some of the doily images from the patterned papers and stuck them on the inside of the cards to add some interest.  Then I die cut two cute cup cakes and the sentiment from the Sue Wilson Treat Yourself Cupcakes set from Creative Expressions.

Here are a few different views of the finished card…..


I hope you will have a go at making your own joy fold card (or just a card inspired by the word “Joy”) and enter our challenge.  The rest of the design team have made a great selection of projects to inspire you.  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my blog, I hope to see you again soon!
