With bundles of love

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Vaentine.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s the adorable Benson Bear ‘Bundle of Hearts’ by Crafty Sentiments Designs  all coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers and a few white gel pen highlights.I decided to make a kind of shaped tent fold card by only die cutting up to the fold then embossing the rest using some stitch effect dies to tie in with the image.Love the red,white and kraft combination so chose some hounds tooth patterned paper and die cut a curvy edge for interest,matting onto some red card cut with a coordinating edge.The sentiment is stamped directly onto the base.The ribbon is salvaged from last year’s Christmas cake and I really can’t take credit for the bow – it was already there ;)Went for a more masculine feel as this will be my DH’s Valentine’s card.It’s OK he never looks at my blog.He’s not interested in bits of paper and card!

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Calendars.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I wanted to make a calendar with a bit more purpose to it for my DD2 as she’s in her final year at Secondary school and in colours to match her recently decorated room.I thought this little beauty,Delightful Flowers  by Crafty Sentiments Designs,was perfect.Not only could I colour that big bloom to coordinate with the décor she’s also a rabbit on the Chinese Zodiac.Apart from dogs she love bunnies too 🙂 I’ve coloured on kraft here with my Polychromos Pencils and painted over the centre of the flower with Iridescent Medium.This card was a real find at my local craft warehouse.It’s double sided!Usually with kraft you get a ‘grey’ side.Not so good for fancy folds and 3D projects.So I bought a whole box of it!!Well…don’t want to run out 😉

My DD2 is struggling with exam nerves so this little gift may cheer her up a bit.This is what you get inside…

csdt2nov10th

A few bits and bobs to help with that all important revision.I might find a little choccy to pop in there too nearer to the time of giving it to her.

The instructions can be found here.

Of course,to go with this she needs an extra accessory….

Desk Puppy!Although she has a day bed in DD2’s room so she can be close to her she prefers to sit under the desk where she can snuggle up to her legs!Or get in the way…The choice is yours 😀

Here’s the most adorable Apple Sprite Holding a Candy Apple by Aurora Wings.After printing onto kraft card I coloured her up with Spectrum Noir Pencils,adding a few white gel pen highlights.I die cut an aperture into another piece of kraft and die cut the scalloped border before overlaying it on this cute apple paper.I stamped a sentiment then cut it into a banner shape.These stamps are fantastic for cards as they’re quite small.So glad I found them 🙂 Some baker’s twine and a button have been added as the finishing touches.

Well,I think Josh – Apple Tree is a good thing 😉 He’s by Crafty Sentiments Designs and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Some white gel pen highlights have been added and his wellies have been given a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.

Here’s a shot of the shine :

csdt21stjuly 002

 

I nearly picked some different papers but when sifting through I came across these.Just had to be!

A strip of jute/hessian ribbon,some wooden leaves and,for good measure,a wooden ladybird embellish the card in keeping with the country feel I was trying to create.I thought the sentiment quite fitting.Judging by the plaster on his cheek I’m guessing it covers an injury from another escapade.Figuring this little guy lives life to the full!

I just had to choose this adorable little Berry Hedgehog by Doodle Pantry and colour him with my Copic Ciao Markers.You do also get pre-coloured versions of him along with a selection of papers and a couple of sentiments.I ended up pulling these magazine freebie papers out instead tho’ as my printer ran out of ink leaving the bottom faded – not a good look!Decided to make a shaped card with stuff hanging over the edge to add more interest.Die cut some different leaves and the matching blueberries are actually holly ones 🙂 Made this for my DD2’s birthday next month as she loves hedgies almost as much as me!!

Here’s the sweet Fashionista from Art by Miran and she’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I just couldn’t resist enhancing those big ol’ blue eyes further with some 3D Crystal Lacquer.Just love these Summery feel papers 🙂 One of my favourite corner punches has been used on the layers and a border punch on the vertical strip so that it could be woven with ribbon.I cheated…gasp!…by adding the bow separately to avoid fiddling about 😉 The flowers are two different punches layered with a gem added to each centre.

Have you scene Spring?

jsldt12thapril

So we’re now into week two of the Think Spring  challenge at  Just Some Lines.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 🙂 

I created a little scene combining the adorable Emo Layla Gardener 2  and the butterfly and Snowdrops from Emo Amber Springtime Value Set by Just Some Lines .All coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers 🙂 Tried out a freebie embossing folder that came with  the latest Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine on some Whitewash card.Works beautifully 😀 Couple of pieces of torn paper cover the corners.The Raffia Lace has been attached with coloured staples.The bottom right corner of the image was looking a little bare so I stamped part of the greeting there and added cut up pieces of the other half,tucking them in behind the image.I popped a cute little wooden clothes peg on too  🙂 As I had dusted off a box of seldom used punches for another project I grabbed the heart to make a flower,having drawn inspiration from the butterfly’s wings.To the centre a paper twine threaded button has been added.I think it turned out rather cute and full of the joys of Spring…do you?

Supplies :

Images : Emo Layla Gardener 2  and Emo Amber Springtime Value Set by Just Some Lines (png. files grouped together in Word)
Sentiment : Created with Ki Hampton Art Wood Mounted Alphabet Stamps and Dovecraft Mini Wood Mounted Alphabet Stamps (sorry there aren’t any names of the styles on the boxes)

Party Poopers!

004

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 :

cypdt3rdmarcloseup 001

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 😉
