Sugar Nellie Door Hanging

Evening everyone! Hows your week going? Good I hope! Yesterday my Sugar Nellie DT package arrived and I just had to ink up this sweet little witch right away! Was hoping to have had this finished yesterday but Leo's been teething again (how he can't have them all yet I don't know!) so my craft time has been seriously eaten into, as has my sleeping time! Anyways..was so thrilled to have got this Mary Hall stamp in my package, she's just perfect for Halloween, and especially ideal for kiddies-some of the Halloween stamps around are quite scary!!!!!

I promised my friend Michelle I'd make her a door hanger/wall hanging for Halloween so this shall be going to her and her little boy. I'm also going to enter this into a few challenges, Simon Says Challenge (Halloween challenge), ASOS (Halloween theme), Fun with Shapes and More(Halloween again!), Pile It On (3d-my image has been raised by silicone glue), and the layout is courtesy of the sketch over at Midnight Madness.

Quite oddly I've not used any embellishments but I really wanted to show off the image and the gorgeous foiled papers, and well, just anything I tried to add, looked too 'overdone'. Here's a little close up:

Stuff: Sugar Nellie stamp by Mary Hall 'Little Witch' available here, ATD premium papers available here, copics to colour, sewing machine, core'dinations cardstock, spider web ribbon from here, black mirri card

Well I'm gonna catch up on a bit of tv, and then best get to bed as we're off shopping tomorrow:) Thanks for stopping by and any comments you might leave, I love reading them! Am sorry for being a bit absent on my blog visiting of late but will hopefully get to catch up a bit soon! xxx


  1. So cute, I can see why you couldn't wait to use this little sweetie, great job!!!

  2. This is just gorgeous! Love the foil background panels and the image is very cute. Your friend will love it!

  3. This is gorgeous Rowena. I reckon it doesn't need embellishments either - just perfect with just the DP.

    Hmmm teeth. Just when you think they have finished they turn into little jackals. LOL. Hope it is over soon. Not looking forward to Ash getting her 2yr old molars.
    Have fun shopping tomorrow.

  4. Hi Rowena, gorgeous doorhanger hun, this has got to be the sweetest witch ever and as always your colouring is beautiful, the foil paper looks fab

  6. Wow, this is super cute. A wonderful Halloween card!!! Thanks for playing with Pile It On.

  7. This is simply stunning! I love it. The DP is amazing.

  8. Hi Rowena - lovely, lovely, lovely. The little Miss Witch image is quite fetching. I totally adore your project - how you sketched it with the different backgrounds coordinating. I love that foil!! I'll have to try and come up with a door hanging for here in case I get some crumb snatchers for Halloween...:p I hope little Leo gets better - teething is an awful thing (for him and the parents!). Good resting!

  9. That is SO FABULOUS!! Can't believe my eyes when I pulled up your card!! There are so many things to love. The background squares ROCK, love the images and the 'shinyness' of them and the image - up to mischief, great coloring.

    I also have some Blog Candy on my blog if that interests you, Thanks.
