A Pizza the action ;)

cypdt25thapril

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Digital Delights by Louby Loo as our sponsor 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.

Meet Pizza Chef Mickey  by Digital Delights by Louby Loo.He’s been coloured using Copic Ciao Markers and a few touches of white gel pen.Thought what better way to display than on a pizza – well,more part of a pizza!I die cut a white card blank then covered it with kraft,with a little inking around the edge for a baked,crusty feel.Next a red card tomato sauce layer followed by a cheesy yellow cardstock.Finally a topping of pepperoni and green pepper die cuts to match those on Mickey’s pizza 😀 Whipped up a sentiment using Microsoft Word and that’s that!Didn’t feel it needed extra embellishment.This will be for my DS2’s Birthday in September (gotta get ’em done early you know!) as it’s no secret in our household that it’s his favourite pizza…not sure what he’ll make of the green peppers tho’ as he’s definitely no fan of them!

What a sweetie Dayna – Birthdays by Crafty Sentiments Designs is.She’s been coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers,with white gel pen on her hat,to match these pretty magazine freebie papers.Even the little tab peeking out from behind the image was cut from a sheet.The piece the sentiment is on is hand cut.I chose this particular flower die so it allowed the paper to show through.A gem has been added to the flower she’s holding in her trunk as well as the centre’s of the die cut ones.A strip of three tiny gems has been applied to the top left corner for extra sparkle 🙂

Meet the gorgeous Isobel – Just For You by Crafty Sentiments Designs.I decided to feature her on a flower shaped easel card and layer up her beautiful bloom for extra dimension :

csdtmar1stcloseup

She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.There’s also Crystal Glamour Dust on the flower centre and 3D Crystal Lacquer on her shoes.I chose a piece of pretty foiled paper to go with her.I found a sentiment that I thought was quite apt!The flowers are actually made by taking the smallest die from the set,snipping between the petals then shaping the flowers.Gems adorn the centres.Finally I hand cut out a mix of glittered and plain leaves from a coordinating sheet of paper.The ribbon is some I had rescued from somewhere but seemed to tone in well with the papers.

Hope you can join in the Hop!

Fairy-ily Floating :)

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous SLS Lines as our sponsor 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.

Thought I’d try my hand at a Floating Card using the beautiful Garden Fairy by SLS Lines.She’s been coloured with Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers.Dug out some of my favourite pretty papers to go with her.This is quite easy to make as you basically chop the middle out of the front of the card.I decided to add a little fancy touch by punching the edges.Once I was ready to stick her in place I lined up the loose bottom section and held it with some large paper clips.Didn’t want to mess it up by being wonky!A sentiment some pearls and a die cut butterfly were added for the finishing touches.

Candy that is good for your ‘Elf’!

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor 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.

How adorable is Candy Elf C by A Day For Daisies?Totally!And what’s more this cutie is calorie and sugar free 😀 All coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers and 3D Crystal Lacquer on the sweetie for that cellophane wrapped feel…

Here’s a closer look.Please excuse that the reds look more pink on this one.Think it’s because I had to hold my craft lamp nearer to capture the shine.That’s what I’m really trying to show…

I also used a Graph’It Shake Marker in Gold to make the little dangly things on his hat jingle bell like,but I suppose they could be anything you want then to be depending what you added 😉

I placed him on this beautiful backing paper and layered with coordinating green card.Around this is wrapped a length of baker’s twine.The wooden candy cane is painted with Gesso.Once dry I lightly ran a red Stardust pen over the top,allowing the ink to flow so as not to clog the nib.Next (as I couldn’t find my clear Stardust pen) I coated the white stripes with Winsor & Newton Iridescent Medium.It’s quite sparkly IRL but the camera failed to pick it up ,and not my lack of photography skills as you’d assume 😉 After stringing the bells onto a shorter piece of twine they were tied on,finishing in a bow.A tiny dab of dries clear PVA stops the cut ends from fraying 🙂 The greeting has been embossed with a magazine freebie border folder.

Supplies :

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….

deskpuppy

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 😀
