Pin-k!

jsldt23rdnov

This is the last week of the 3 or More Embellishments challenge at Just Some Lines.Eeek!And a reminder that Christmas is creeping ever closer!”To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a fantastic digi stamp if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

So I thought I’d have another go at using my Graph’It Markers to colour the sweet Em – Thank You String by Just Some Lines.Think I need some more skin tones tho’ 😉 A few white gel pen highlights have been added too.I chose some pretty First Edition papers to accompany her along with this lovely cardstock.I made a curved panel with a Spellbinders die and layered some die cut scalloped ovals on top before fussy cutting this gorgeous gal and adding her to the mix.The ribbon is some that was wrapped around a towel bale and I,being the ‘it-might-come-in-handy-one-day’ hoarder that I am,found it to be a perfect match to the pink card 🙂 It always seems no matter how much ribbon I buy it’s the little bits and pieces I collect that do the trick every time!I dug out some paper twine and tied a flower charm to that.To compliment the colours on Em,and to complete the card,I tucked a couple of pins under the bottom of the vertical piece.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Emo Amber and the Heart balloon by Just Some Lines. Her dress and balloon have been paper pieced,the rest of her has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.The balloon has also had a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.I took inspiration from this card here as I had bought the papers for a Red,White & Blue card and was looking for ideas on how to use the rest.I altered it suit the image and added some corrugated card.I made a ribbon rosette and topped it with a chipboard button threaded with baker’s twine to finish.

For my card I chose the wonderful Bears and Bees digi stamp by Eureka Stamps  and coloured them with Copic Ciao Markers,trying to get a little fuzziness into those bears.I thought this would be a great image to use as this card is for my DS1,who is well known for getting himself into sticky situations,to give to his dear old Dad 🙂 I made a border of hexagons,embossed,sanded then cut from a template and stapled together.I used some fab papers from my stash,more staples and a sentiment made by me on the ‘puter.The finishing touch is a trio of threaded buttons.

Oh,sew pretty!

cypdt3rdjune 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Haberdashery Items.We have the fabulous Crafty Sentiments and Wild Rose Studio 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 Kaye – Thinking of You by Crafty Sentiments and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve used a kraft card blank as the base and another for the die cut elements.This has teamed with some very pretty Papermania Vintage Notes papers.These have a lovely linen texture so thought they would be good to go with the theme 🙂 Apart from using various die cuts and punches I’ve layered up a few bits and pieces from the Vintage Notes collection (they came in the Goody Bag when they were first released).The little calendar and pink ticket were cut from a sheet of the paper.I went a teency bit crazy when it came to the sewing related items.I wonder if you can spot them all?!More to point I wonder if I can remember them all? 😉 Well…. there’s stitching(all hand done!),ribbons,lace,buttons,pins,snap fasteners,hook and eye fasteners,the felt for the flowers (yes,I’m counting that) and anything else you may have spotted that I’ve left off my list.Now the safety pin is a bit of a fraud as it’s a plastic embellishment my S-I-L gave me,along with some other stuff for my card making.I added it at the last moment but it does still tie in with the theme 😉

Supplies :

Image : Kaye -Thinking of You by Crafty Sentiments
Colouring Medium : Copic Ciao Markers
Papers & Card : Papermania Vintage Notes 6 x 6 Linen Paper Pack,Papermania Vintage Notes A4 Toppers Icons,Papermania Vintage Notes A4 Toppers Sentiments,Craft UK Limited 6 x 6 Kraft Card Blank (plus another for die cut pieces)

Love ewe,Dad!

jsldt1stjune 001

At Just Some Lines the challenge is Anything Goes this fortnight.Only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

I decided to go with a Father’s Day card.For this I’ve used the delightful Emo Aleks Shepherd by Just Some Lines and coloured him using Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve teamed him with some Forever Friends papers.I’ve added some buttons and faux suede strips.I also threaded some of the strip material through the buttons.That was some mean feat,I can tell you!!So after realising a pokey tool would be useful and choosing some carefully selected words the deed was done!The sentiment was devised by me and printed from the ‘puter.The idea behind this card is that my youngest son loves sheep/lambs ever since discovering that was his sign in the Chinese zodiac.It’s also quite funny that when he was a baby his most favourite bedtime snuggle was a lamb.He loved his little ‘lamby’ so much he used to cuddle it then roll over with it.In the morning we would find this rather squashed and flattened but so well loved object.It never failed to raise a smile 🙂 The other thought,and hence the wording,is to do with thanking his Dad for all the help and support he has given him to shape him into the lovely little boy he is today.My son looks a little like Aleks too 😉
