I love Red,White & Blue

jsldt18thjan

We’re into the 3rd week of the month long Favourite Colour Combo 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 thought I’d go for Red,White Blue this week.Not just for patriotic cards – I love the crispness of it 🙂 I’ve coloured the main part of the adorable Girl Holding a heart shape balloon by Just Some Lines with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers.For her balloon I’ve paper pieced it using a beautiful gem effect design from the First Edition Neroli paper pad.I think it gives the effect of a foil balloon 🙂 This pad really caught my eye at my local craft warehouse and it had the added bonus of having a whopping 30% off 😀 I also found these cute ‘n’ quirky alphabet stamps for £1.99 so I just had to use them alongside this gal.I’ve added a length of ribbon,a layered up Prima flower with a pearl center and a couple of pearly heart topped pins to tie it all in.

Supplies :

Mediums : Copic  Ciao & Sketch Markers,Jet Black Archival Ink

Totally Charming :)

cypdt30th sept 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Add a Little Charm.We have the fabulous The Robin’s Nest 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.

For my card I’ve stamped out one of my much coveted and seldom used hAnglar & stAnglars.I just hope that if anything happens to me my DH has enough sense to put these on eBay and not throw them in the bin thinking they are just another piece of junk in my crafty collection.These are my children’s inheritance 😉 She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and very carefully cut out.I’ve teamed her with some pretty glittery papers and shimmery cardstock.A length of paper lace can just be seen popping out from behind the right hand edge of the vertical strip.Purely for decoration purposes and not because I forgot to punch the edge,you understand 😉 lol A number of die cut pieces have been added,including the layered up flower.From the centre of this a piece of chain from an old key ring dangles from a crystal brad.I attached a butterfly charm with a jump ring. The sentiment is part of a freebie set from a past issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

Supplies :

Image : hAnglar & stAnglar stamp (from a set I can’t remember the name of!?!)

Pretty as a picture

jsldt15thjune 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.

For my card I created this scene,in Word,by mixing and matching various images from Just Some Lines.The sweet little girl is Layla – sitting and she’s perched on Log Not only would this suit some of the other sitting characters it would make a great background piece too.The Tulips and Butterfly are from the Emo Amber Springtime Value Set.Useful as a set on it’s own but great to work with your other Just Some Lines images as well.That’s the beauty of receiving the images in both JPG and PNG files.But the best thing of all is you don’t have to be a computer whiz to do this 🙂 If I can do it anybody can – believe me!LOL  You just play until you are happy with everything plus it’s so much fun 😀

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)

Rainy Days & Mondays

dscdt22ndapril 001

cyp&dscdt22ndapril 001

At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Rain,Rain Go Away!We have the super Crafty Sentiments and Ellephantastic as our sponsors.

It’s the lovely Anne-Marie’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

As you can see I’ve made two card and both use our sponsors images 🙂

For my top card I’ve used Mia by Crafty Sentiments and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers and used white gel pen to add highlights.Altho’ she’s not really designed as a rainy day image I’ve applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to her coat to give the appearance of a rain mac and also to her boots to make them look like wellies 😉 I’ve flicked a pale blue Copic Ciao Marker across the background and coated it with more lacquer for instant rain!I chose the papers,that I’ve had an age,to compliment the rainy feeling.All edges have had the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser treatment.A couple of  clouds have been sanded before being placed on the card.To finish the card a clear button has been threaded through some paper twine which has been wrapped around the border piece.

Supplies :

Image : Mia by Crafty Sentiments
Mediums : Copic Ciao Markers,Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen,3D Crystal Lacquer
Papers & Card : DP K & Co,Core’dinations Roy G.Biv 12 x 12 Cardstock Pad

To Embellish: Paper Twine and Clear Button from stash

For my second card I’ve used Emily Autumn by Ellephantastic and coloured her with ProMarkers this time,trying to incorporate as many of the new Spring/Summer Limited Edition colours.I’ve also gone for a different look by using pastel backing papers and card.I cut a circle frame to place behind the image from some Nellie’s  Multi Frame Circle Dies.I’ve not used them like this before but I really like it 🙂 I stamped a circular sentiment and added it to another one of the frames.Some acrylic dew drops have been used to embellish.

Supplies :

Image : Emily Autumn by Ellephantastic
Colouring Medium : ProMarkers

All that glitters…

cypdt18thfeb 001

… is difficult to photograph…LOL

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is All That Glitters.So a good excuse to get sprinkling 😉 We have the fabulous Stamp Fairy 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!

For my card I’ve used Molly Fairy by Stamp Fairy and coloured her with Polychromos pencils and blended with low odour oils thinners using paper stumps.I then glittered up her wings,hairband,star on her wand and boots.After fussy cutting her I mounted her on foam pads onto this fab die cut (a new set I bought).The papers are all beautifully glittered too but the camera has failed to capture it.I hand cut the hexagon border from another sheet in the pad.The corner is cut from the same set of dies and fitted perfectly with the punched corners –  love it when a plan comes together 🙂 I stamped a sentiment onto yet another piece of card cut with this set.I layered up a grosgrain ribbon bow and a glittered button (that unfortunately doesn’t show either) tied with some paper twine to embellish.

Supplies :

Image : Molly Fairy by Stamp Fairy
Mediums : Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils,Low Odour Oils Thinners,Memento Rhubarb Stalk Dew Drop Ink Pad,Crystal Glamour Dust

Such a ‘tweet’ couple

jsldt12thjan 003

It’s the first challenge of the year at Just Some Lines!And it’s Something New.This could be some newly acquired stash or for a new occasion (New Baby,Home etc…).From now on 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.

For my card I’ve used the delightful Wedded Bliss (birds) and coloured them with ProMarkers,added white gel pen highlights and  inked the edges.The heart with the sentiment is actually a pocket with a hidden message tag inside,with computer generated wording.

jsldt12thjan 002

So it looks like I’ve followed the theme then… a new life together.Wait!There’s more.Of course with the many craft sales that are taking place ATM I managed to pick up the pad the papers are from for a small,tidy sum.Yeah,more papers.I wonder if I’ll ever use them all? The heart dies are also a new acquisition too.Have to admit not being a romantic,girly type I’ve never owned anything crafty that’s heart shaped except a teeny punch when I first started cardmaking and a border die that I rarely use.Now I can see these being so useful 🙂

‘Owl’ Celebrate with You

wscdt20thdec

It’s my turn to host at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s my sketch :

WSC 20th Dec 2

The Theme is ‘Let’s Celebrate’.So any occasion worth celebrating.Could be Christmas,New Year,Birthdays etc…well you get the picture 🙂  Don’t forget you can follow the sketch and/or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Quick Card Panel 1 and a backing paper from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom both by Willow Designs.I’ve teamed them with with some pretty pearlescent  card.Rather than a punched border I decided to use a bunting die.Yet another seldom used ‘must have’.I found these cute ‘n’ quirky clear flower buttons at my local craft warehouse and just had to use ’em!I also added some Stickles to the flower centres on the panel.
