Party Poopers!


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Birthday Bonanza!We have the fabulous Eureka Stamps and Flourish With A Bling as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

When it came to choosing an image from Eureka Stamps,oh my gosh,I just had to have Party Poopers!Not only is it a super digi but with that name I really couldn’t pick anything else 😛  They’ve been coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Probably difficult to tell from the pic but I’ve taken the opportunity to  layer them up to give extra dimension 🙂

Here’s a view to demonstrate :

I ran the card front through an embossing folder for some texture,created some bunting with the first part of the message and then stamped the rest on the mat behind the image.I made a rosette ‘cos I haven’t done that for a looooong time.Had to add buttons just because I love them ♥ 

After seeing these being used a lot in cardmaking magazines and no details listed I finally managed to find an extra large corner rounder punch.I’m so 😀 Or does that make me sound 😦 LOL

I had made this card for myself as it’s my Birthday today but as I haven’t used girly papers I think I may give to my hubby as it’s his Birthday next Monday.Luckily I have some matching kraft card to make a box 😉

Fairy-ly Good Luck!

Oh my it’s the first challenge of the month at  Just Some Lines!This time we’re looking for your St.Patrick’s Day/Good Luck creations.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3.As usual there is a freebie on the challenge site if you wish to use it 🙂

This is the sweet Goodnight Fairy by Just Some Lines and she’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Of course being a fairy she had to have a little sparkle courtesy of a Gold Graph’It Glitter Shake pen on her wings and shoes.I don’t do this very often but when selecting my paper I came across this one that was actually 12 x 12 divided into quarters so I trimmed it down to cover the whole of the card front.All the stitching and hessian circle are printed as part of the paper 🙂 I just added a little crochet lace for texture.I die cut some flowers and added a extra large gem along with a couple of buttons to the centres.I generated the sentiment on the computer then cut it into a banner shape,curving it outward and placing foam tape behind to give it some lift.
