Once I spotted the adorable Merry-Christmouse by Deedee’s Digis I just knew I had to make another card for Christmas….2016!He’s been printed onto Neenah Desert Storm card then coloured with Polychromos Pencils and highlighted with a white Soufflé pen.Some Chunky White Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel has been melted around the edges.The same treatment has been given to the sentiment which is one of a few also included in the set.The candy cane embellishment started out as a plain wooden one.I applied a coat of Gesso over it then coloured the red stripes in with a permanent marker.What has managed to elude the camera is the added shine of  a couple of layers of clear embossing powder…never mind,I know it’s there 🙂 To complete the rustic feel given by the kraft and checks I tied a little jute button twine into a bow around it.

As soon as I saw this owl image in the Teacher’s Pet set by Deedee’s Digis I just knew I had to make some kind of book style card.The idea for this one came from here at Card-Making-Magic.Of course,this pre-coloured image is one of a few images you get (in different formats),along with a couple of papers and several sentiments!Great value 🙂 I added a bookplate die cut containing one of the sentiments attached with eyelets,a baker’s twine tied paperclip and an extra large eyelet.This is for one of my DS2’s teachers and it’s his last year at Primary School before he starts ‘Big School’ in September.It’s also kind of an end of an era for us as he’s our youngest.He has 2 part time teachers and a teaching assistant.So I guess I will using the rest of this fab kit to make a couple more of these style cards 😉

Supplies :

Image,Sentiment & Papers : Teacher’s Pet by Deedee’s Digis

As Father’s Day is looming here in the UK I thought I’d take the opportunity to make a little gift using Jellybean Prayer by Deedee’s Digis .These are my DH’s favourite jelly beans.He’s not big on sweets but he loves these plus the added bonus is they’re easily obtainable from my favourite discount store 😉 I adapted and remeasured a Test Tube Holder idea.Boy,it wasn’t easy for someone who’s mathematically challenged but I got there in the end.I had to add an extra piece for the back panel as with having to enlarge it to accommodate the tube the card just wasn’t long enough.The rest is pretty simple.Just a couple of papers from the set (there’s LOADS in this kit),a pre-coloured image and the sentiment is one I made up.There is a similar one,along with a lovely prayer,in the set but it didn’t quite match this occasion.A pair of eyelets to attach said sentiment and we’re good to go 😀

Supplies :

Image & Papers :  Jellybean Prayer by Deedee’s Digis

Sentiment : Made in Word by me

Card : Black American Crafts 12 x 12 Textured Cardstock,Kraft from stash

I’ve taken this little piggy from the Party Animals set by Deedee’s Digis and decided he would make a great Yo-Yo Spinner Card using a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.That’s why there’s a thread with a button dangling  from under his chin.Bet you were wondering,eh? 😉 When you pull the string his head spins!

Bit difficult to capture in stills but this may give you the gist of it :

PicMonkey Collage

And here’s how it ends up once it’s unravelled completely and his head is back to where it began :

These are great for kids – or husbands!Kind of equates to the same thing in most cases 😛

My goodness,there’s so much in this set!Three images in various uncoloured and coloured forms,three 6 x 6 papers and four sentiments!I’ve coloured up the pig with Copic Ciao Markers and I’ve used two of the papers with some complementary purple card from my stash.I really thought this style of card would go so well with those fabby sentiments!Ideally I would’ve loved to have added another orange button to the border at the top but I only had one so chose a matching one in purple instead.The black thread is recycled from some clothing price labels 🙂

 

Supplies :

Image,Papers & Sentiments : All from Party Animals set by Deedee’s Digis

Colouring Medium : Copic Ciao Markers

Cardstock : Purple & Kraft from my stash,Papermania Acetate (not seen – for the spinner)

Tools : X-Cut Guillotine,Elusive Images Groovy-Duo Board,Martha Stewart Cherish Edger Punch,Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop (this is actually what you get left with after cutting the scallops),Nestabilities Standard Circles Small (for cutting the acetate for the spinner),Big Shot

To Embellish : Papermania Buttons Purples & Oranges,Black Thread recycled from clothing price labels,Papermania Metallic Brad from stash (not seen – holds spinning mechanism together)
