Christmas Purples

Hi Everyone

It is my day to post on the Digi Doodle Studios Blog 

For my Inspiration Card this week I have used this Digi Image called Christmas Grace
and I have coloured her with Copics and Diamond Sparkles Glitter.  I think I am getting better at pleats/folds lol


 The Card Blank is a 6" Square and the Patterned Paper is from WRS.  I added a strip of my base layer across the card and cut a bow using a Tattered Lace Die.  The Merry Christmas and the Snowflakes are also Tattered Lace Dies.  I finished by adding Purple Pearl Gems




 Thank you for visiting my blog and share this card with me today.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Decorative Edge Autumn

Hi Everyone

Its the middle of the month and the new challenge has started today over at CCC Digi Creations 

 

The theme for the next fortnight is Fantasy.  I hope that you can come on over and play along with us.

 We have two sponsors for this challenge one of which is The Paper Shelter and the team were kindly given this image called Autumn Enchantment to work with .


I coloured the image using Copics and went for a CAS style card but with a decorative edge which I cut using a Die-Namics Stitched Edge die.  Takes a bit of work to cut it straight and get it right but I got there in the end after alot of paper flying across the room lol. To keep it simple I added a Brown Satin Bow to finish it off.

Monochrome Magic with a Twist of Stars

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge over at Monochrome Magic today



The theme for this month is Monochrome or Monochrome with a TWIST of Add Stars.  I hope that you will come on over and play along with me this month.

For my Inspiration Project this month I made my Eldest Son's Birthday Card.  All my children have recently taken up Martial Arts and have passed their first grading which promoted them from a plain white belt to a white belt with a black stripe.  So I used this image which is perfect from Pink Gem Designs called Karate Andy and I have coloured him with Copics

The Card is a 7" Square and the patterned papers are from my stash.  I cut the star banner from an unamed die that I bought recently.  The sentiment I typed on the laptop before printing the image.

I love this image and will be using it quite a lot I think!

Sylvie Ballerina CAS Style

Hi Everyone

It's Tuesday again so that means it's my turn to post on the Digi Doodle Studios Blog


For my Inspiration card this week I have used one of my favourite Digi Stamps in the Store called Sylvie Ballerina  I adore this image.  She was the first Image I coloured up which if you are a regular to my blog you will remember she was done in Pinks.  This time I coloured her up in Blues and made a card which is CAS in style although it is layered up and Glittery lol.  I made a Birthday card to send to a friend and fellow crafter who lives in The Netherlands

I printed her larger this time so that she filled up the card.  I coloured her using copics and added Dovecraft Glitter to the centre of the flower on her head band.  The Card is a 6" Square and I have used Blue Glitter Card to layer her up.  The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  I finished by adding a Pearl Gem to her Bow on her Ballet Shoes.

I love colouring this image, wonder what colour she will appear on my blog next lol!




Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this card with me today.  My friends Birthday was yesterday so she would have seen it before it is live on my blog lol.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Monster Marci

Hi Everyone

I was very excited to be invited to be a Guest Designer at Dragonfly Dreams  this month.


The theme for October is Fully Loaded.  That's where my excitement ended lol!!!  Only joking but if you are a regular to my blog you will know that I have strived for a very long time to make a "Busy" Card as I call them and I am never happy with the results.  I just do not seem to have the knack that alot of other crafters do.

However you will also know that I like a challenge so I coloured up this gorgeous image which was the free image in the Kit and Clowder Colouring class recently.  I coloured her up first as she was intended and she will be shared in a post at a later date, but I also was inspired by another crafter who coloured her up for Halloween.  So I thought I would have a go at that too.  You can find the image HERE  She is called Heart Cupcake Marci from La La Land Crafts

I have coloured her with Copics and cut her out using a Spellbinders Decorative Circle. I used my Frantage around her too.

The Card is approx 7" and I used a Go Kreate Frilly Frame Die to cut out and layer the shape.  I added a Black Glizty Ribbon, feathers and some Paper Flowers.  The Spider, Ghost and Bat Die Cuts I bought on Ebay.  The Spider Webs I cut using a Poppy Stamps Die.  The Halloween Word is a Tattered Lace Die.  I found the tag on Google which led me to a site for free tags/papers etc.  I kept moving things about until I was happy and then glued it all together.  I finished by adding Black Pearl Gems and a Black Satin Bow.

As always I had fun making this "Busy" card and I am actually Happy with the finished result.

Little Witch with Frantage

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Fabrika Fantasy Challenge Blog 

The theme for this month is Pink or Halloween.   You get to choose this time or maybe you will do both and make a Pink Halloween Card lol!

I chose to work with this image called Little Witch and I have coloured her up using Copics and ProMarkers.

The Card is a 6" Square and I used Memento Dew Drop Ink Pads to create the background around her.  I cut the Spiderweb from White Glitter Card using a Poppystamps Die.  I then got to play with Frantage for the first time.  I think I was a bit shy on the quantity but I didn't want to overdo it lol.  I love this stuff and need other colours in my collection.
