Lunching with Dinosaurs

dscdt29thjuly 001

For my card I’ve used Dino Lunch by Digi Darla and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I dug out these Basic Grey papers that not only go well with dinosaurs they make great boys cards too.I stamped the greeting straight onto the image piece and framed it with a sticker from the paper set.A button,border and arrow have also been added.To finish off I’ve embellished with a few brads.

For my card I’ve used the super cute Toby SpringFairy by Stamp Fairy and coloured him with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.For an extra special touch I’ve paper pieced his dress and,of course,added some Glamour Dust.Ain’t he pretty?!I decided to create a card with a little white space for a change.I dug out these papers from my stash as I thought the colours would give a fresh,Springlike feel.I used one of my favourite but seldom used punches on the purple layer of card and decorated the centre of each flower with a gem.I layered up 3 different types of ribbon and topped then with a bow.The sentiment has been stamped directly on to the card base and more Glamour Dust has been applied to the stars at either end of the words.

For my card I’ve used Fat Birdie by Cedar Chest Designs.Just for a bit of fun I thought I would paper piece this little cutie.A Copic Sketch Marker was used to create a little shading around the birds eyes and underneath the bird.All the patterned papers are First Edition Boho Chic.I added a stamped sentiment layered onto a lacy circle cut from my new Crafts Too die set.I found this sweet metal tab whilst rooting around in my embellishment stash so of course it just had to end up on my card 😉

Happy Brrrrr-thday!

jsldt13thapril 001

 

Just a reminder that the For a Child challenge at Just Some Lines  is still open.You could be in the running for a super prize.You need play along with a Just Some Lines image to enter and one random winner will get 4 digi stamps of their choice.It doesn’t stop there tho’ as the Top 3 will get one digi stamp each too!There is a freebie to get you started too or you can choose one from Just Some Lines here.

For my card I’ve used the totally cool Birthday Penguin by Just Some Lines and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.Now for this card I didn’t follow my usual creative process…in fact I had no idea where I was going with it.Sure I’d picked the image,papers and red card but normally I have some idea of a layout in my head.Not this time.Even the kraft base and layers were on a whim.Next I sifted through my large die collection to gain some inspiration.Plus this gave me the chance to use some of my newest and untouched dies 🙂 The arch shape would fit this little chap perfectly and I fancied making some bunting with these little flag shapes.I strung it up with some baker’s twine suspended on some brads to allow it some free movement.The lettering was made with an old die set that I haven’t used for years – literally!!The word ‘birthday’ is part of the sentiment that’s included with the image.I hand cut the fishtail piece running along the bottom of the card and added more brads.So for a card that I had no clue what  it was going to end up as  I’m pretty pleased how it turned out 🙂

Supplies :

Image & Sentiment : Birthday Penguin by Just Some Lines
Colouring Medium : Copic Ciao Markers
Papers & Card :  DP DCWV All About Boys 8 x 8 Pad,Core’dinations Roy G.Biv 12 x 12 Cardstock Pad,Craft UK Limited 6 x 6 Kraft Card Blank (plus another cut up for layering etc.)

This week at Craft Your Passion the challenge is Make It Cute!!We have the fabulous 2 Cute Ink  and The Robin’s Nest 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.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Monster Balloon Digital Stamp  by 2 Cute Ink and coloured him with ProMarkers.His balloon has given a coating of Glossy Accents.I’ve layered up various papers from the Kars Vector paper pad.I turn to this pad time and time again for male themed cards.You can just pick out that the one behind the monster is glittered too.I chose some green cardstock to coordinate and a few brads to match.Metal embellishments just seem so right on masculine cards 🙂 The sentiment has been made on my Dymo Labelmaker using a plain bold font this time,then cut into banner shapes.Love this little gadget 😀 This card is for my DH from my youngest son.
