Sugar Bowl - April


 


 
Hi All,

Firstly I apologise for the picture heavy post, it was kind of hard to work out the best way to photograph this to show the complete project.

Well ... its time for another challenge over at the sugar bowl and as always we have the theme of anything goes. I have used the fabulous Leanne Ellis image, the Leanne Ellis range can be found here I have coloured her up with copic's ( this one was coloured a while ago, so pre me making a note of copic's used ) and I added a water colour background. I then teamed it up with one of the teacup cards from " The house of Zandra, fabulous tea & cakes cd " I added the clock, little mushrooms and tiny little bottle to really try and add to that wonderland theme. I hope you like.

I would so love to see you in the sugar bowl, I love being inspired by you all, and as always there are some fabulous sugary prizes on offer :-)

Sir Benjamin

Hi All, this is a card I made for my BIL&SIL's wedding anniversary ... My SIL has subjected her hubby to far too many 18th Century drama's as he now likes to be referred to as Sir Benjamin, LOL. So I thought this image from the polkadoodles rose bud collection was just perfect. My SIL was married in a pale blue dress hence the colour choice, and they are going to Paris later this year, which was why I have added the French details.

I have been a little remiss in taking note of the copics I used, and in noting down the ingredients to the card.

The Paris stamp in Stampendous and I have embossed with white embossing powder onto some Bo Bunny Papers and added distress ink tumbled Glass. I have also used a little Kanban stamp to embellish round the edges. I have used a Tim Holtz, HOTP & Marianne Creatables dies for all the embellishments. I added a few paper flowers some little vellum flowers cut with and x cut punch and some bling.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Createalicious - Anything Goes
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
Just Inspirational - Flourish and Bling
Crafting All Seasons - Pastel Colours
As you like it - Fav type of stamp rubber or digi ( digi as I can re-size, )

Anniversary Season

Hi All,

Its Anniversary season in our family, I am not quite sure what it is about March but we all chose that month to get married in ... Including myself, LOL!! ... so I am on a mission to get all the cards made on time.

This one is so far out of my comfort zone!!! ..... I normally cant cope with ribbons at all, I love them on everyone else's cards but for some reason I cant get them to work for me .... these ones I have beat into submission with a stapler, think this may be my new secret weapon!! The reason I have pushed myself out my comfort zone is this card is for my Auntie and she loves ribbon and fuss!!

I have used 2 images from Saturated Canary, and have colored it all up with my W9 copic markers, and then added a watercolour background. I have stitched the edges with gold thread and used some frantage. The papers are DCWV- Blackcurrant stack. I have die cut flowers using a heartfelt creation stamp & co-coordinating die set. Then I have rummaged in my neglected ribbon and flower box to get embellies to co-ordinate.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers - Ribbons and Pearls
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
PTW - Anything Goes
Clear it out - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thurs - Dies and Punches
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking

Snow Day

Hello All,

Well we are covered in snow here in the north of Scotland ... As my husband has an outside job, it has been a bit of a snow day, so he was able to spend some quality time with our daughter and I was able to spend some quality time with my craft stash!! LOL

This was an image I coloured up a few weeks ago, I think to date it is the colouring I am most proud of. The image is from Hannah Lynn, and yes I was inspired by Elsia from frozen ... I have a frozen obsessed little girl, what can I say!! .... I have coloured this one up with my copics:

Dress: BG09, BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000, B16, B14, B12, B00

I have stamped around the image with some snowflake stamps from WRMK and embossed with WOW snowflake sparkle embossing powder, then I have colour tinted the paper with distress ink, Tumbled glass. I have then stitched round the edge with some sparkly thread.

I have teamed it up with papers Bo Bunny/Country Garden. I have used Heartfelt dies with co-ordinating stamps, ( Leafy Bloom )again they have been stamped and embossed with the WOW powders to match the snowflakes. and I have used an x-cut punch and cottage Cuts -Winter Bloom for all the snowflakes.
