Special friend Card.. Faeryink Stamps

Hiya I made this card for a very special friend..She is coloured using Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card..I have just l looked therough the shop and it was not on there tonight ,but it was the other night,there seem to be some missing ,so maybe there is being a sort out..She may have been discontinued as I have had her for about a year and just not had time to colour her ,or the confidence either .Her name is Gabbie Flutterfae... The papers I have used are from a freebie from one of the magazines and I am sorry I cannot remember which ot the name of the pad as the cover seems to be missing ...But I have mounted them all onto craft card..The flowers are punched out of Cordinations card as are the leaves and I have also added pretty small pink faux pearls to the centers of them to bring the flow from the flowers in her hair through to the main card.. I hope you like her my friend did ..Thank you for visiting :)xx Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year xx

Same but Different ..Besties UK DT Card

Its the time for the same but different card once more..I have coloured her in with Polychromos onto Neenah card..I have used red mirror card to back all my papers which are from the Dovecrafts Krafty Christmas  paper pad.. The dies I have used are Mariane ,(the smaller of the two in the set ) Creatables and the others are either Britanic ,which I think or Joanne Sheen Signature..These two sets really complement each other..I did not use the larger Marianne die as I was using my Spellbinders Saphire die cutting machine and sadly it is too large to go thorough the space..But its an excellent addition to the craft room and I use it more than any other machine..Great for the smaller dies like flowers and small borders ,leaves and sentiments..I love mine ..Thank you for visiting and Happy Christmas to you and your loved ones ,hope you make some special memories xx

Ho!, Ho! ,Ho! Santa..613 Avenue Create DT card

This card was fun and also an adventure..I had to create a larger star as my dies were too small to start with ..then I stuck it to some watercolour card with temporary fix spray glue..Then went to town with Brushos..thes are so cool,and amazing to watch pop to life..I wanted a bright like the lights on a Christmas tree background ..For my first attempt I am rather tickled pink with these too..will no doubt play again sometime.I Coloured the image in Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card,and fussy cut him out..I then used a XCut alphabet die set for the Ho! Ho! s.. I cut the center of the star out and left a small white trim around the edge to highlight it ..then I matted it onto Craft card..Yep I know I use it loads ,but its recycled and its doing a bit for the enviroment as well as looks good and does not give the shine of gold card..Any way if you get a chance do get a hold of some of these tiny pots they are amazing..Thank you for visiting xx

Morgan Fitszimmons Non Traditional Christmas Colours

This is a beautiful image to colour..as it is non traditional colours I decided to do it in teal..I used Polychromos pencils on Neenah card.. I added a simple background as I wanted her to be the main feature on the card,so s few simple lines and circles it was easily done..I used pinks and golds in the sky as well as warm greys..This helped to push the figure to the front and the clothing to stand out too... For the card I used a simple fold back and matted papers from Papermania Krafty Christmas ontoCraft card then the back and the front..I then added further detail to the front by adding the two off cuts from the blue paper to craft card and making a feature of them..The snowflakes are cut from a Tonic Snowflake punch,using craft card and I placed tiny Crystal in the center.to finish...The card is simple yet it is one of those really striking cards that really pops on the fireplace..Thank you for visiting :)xx

A Home for Christmas... Julia Spiri DT card

With this card this week we had to create a Dolls house,house for Julia's work so this is what I have come up with for this one..The Images are coloured on Neenah card with Polychromos Pencils and tthe background I have hand drawn onto Bristol Board ans also coloured with Polychromos Pencils too..Was supposed to be a Mushroom ,but realised when proportioning it onto the card and using te images it was not really possible to get it into perspective or make it believable .so it has turned out with flatter roof  than I had planned The background I have used chalks to colour in the sky ..I then mounted it onto first craft card ,then black card to stiffen it .Then I added a normal 5x7 card to the back as a stand and some  red ribbon,and a bit of red and gold ribbon to finish and topped with a white rose..Thank you for visiting :)xx

The Gift ..Besties uk Dt card Anything Goes and Christmas

As soon as I saw this digi I fell in love with her ,so she is my pick this time.. She is coloured in Polychromos as usual on Neenah card.. All papers are mounted onto craft card and I have actually used papers from My Tonic Paper pad as I have misplaced my Christmas pad I wanted to use and need to get more paper so could not even print out ..Hard at 1.30 am on Monday morning lol,my cat suit does not fit any more lol..for the slightly older teenagers like my self you will know what that means ..(what bank robbers would usein the olden days  with a mask and stripey jumper)  lol..The papers are not Christmas but I actually think they work well so shhh!..The central panel is an off cut of plain paper just to bring the green through to the card..I faux stitched this to make a feature of this and once I stuck the topper in place with 3D glue gel I then added 3 snowflakes cut from a Tonic Punch to each side and popped blue pearls into the center to set them off..and to finish I added a small gold bow and popped another snowflake and pearl into the center..Its a bit quirky but was fun making and thats what crafting is all about ..Thanks for visiting :)xx

Candle Light ..Glitter n Sparkle DT Card

The image from The Stamping Boutique this week has been coloured in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..When I first received it I thought hmm! , as when you do some DT work you do what is chosen for you,this is one that i would not have chosen..But needless to say I did my magic on it and was amazed at how beautiful it has come out..It was one of those I put down and picked up and did a bit more on a few times but I am pleased with it..The beautiful material look backing paper is one I found printed out in my files from some time ago ,probably a CC paper ,as I keep what is not used just in case ..This went beautifully with the image and did not overcrowd it .The Ivy dies are from CC Diesire range and the flowers are from Sue Wilson's Christmas Poinsettia collection I had these a few years ago and I have cut these and all my gold card in a linen effect mat gold,just a nice glowing gold..I used glitter ribbon on a section of the gold card and placed it central across the card,then added Topper with 3D glue gel..The right hand corner is going to have a personalized tag on so it has been Photographed without ,so use your imagination lol..I do not add personalized tags unless its for my family and they have received then . You understand ..To finish I have added purple gems with snowflakes in to pull the purple out of the one bauble ,but as the light changes they do show gold and red too ..Thank you for visiting xx

Girls Happy Birthday.. Glitter n Sparkle DT card

Hiya ,this is one of those digis with such a lot going on in it that I felt it needed a fairly simple but pretty background for it.. I have coloured it with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card.The Backing Paper is from one of my Tonic pads ,well worth buying lots of beautiful papers and a lovely weight too...I mounted everything onto Craft card and for the front I crossed a yellow with a blue spot ribbon and a blue with a white spot ribbon and made matcking bows and added then one on top of the other ,to finish I added a lovely silk flower and a yellowy gold pearl ,also added them as you can see in the picks..this brought the yellow from the topper into the backing paper and balanced it..Thank you for popping by xx

Love at Christmas ..613 Avenue Create DT card

This is such a fun digi to colour..I love the Bugaboo stamps then are so nice when coloured..please note though the background is mine not on the original digi. I have coloured  them on Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils,then mounted them onto Craft card..The background papers are Dovecrafts Krafty Christmas and also matted onto craft card..I then did my squiggly and dot around the background to add a bit more detail..I then added the topper with 3D glue Gell.. For the decorations I kept them reasonably simple as this is for my friends Husband and I shall pop the tag on after on the bottom left. As I personalise I thought best to leave it off...The Snowflakes are from CC Diesire classic Christmas and the others are from Mariane Designs..To finish I added some lovely gems I got from Ebay that have snowflakes in them..just because its for a man it does not mean it has to be boring lol..Thank you for popping by xx

Princess door hanger ..Project for Julia Spiri Stamos DT

Thisproject was so far out of my box..I rarely do anything but cards as I have manual dexterity and doing fiddly things is very difficult for me now..But I have to say I do really love this little creation and enjoyed making it ..The Door handle is a Chipboard blank I purchased from Every Craft a Pound,but I think it was two for a Pound something like that .. They are real value for money,and nice and thick. The pretty little girl is coloured in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,and then for this piece fussy cut out...I stuck the papers directly onto the shape ,but I drew around the top and the bottom edge first and decided the amount I wanted to use on each piece as I used an 8x8 Tonic Paper pad and it would not cover in one so had to do it in sections..One sorted I glued the three pieces down and put faux stitxhing around it ,then did the same with the small heart for the bottom. I then used worn lipstick to go around the work..not too gad at this hence don't do it often lol....When this was done then I added some pretty spotted pink ribbon to attatch the heart to the door hanger,put some across the seams of paper and added the bows.. I then added the little girl using 3D glue gel..To finish I added a sentiment and small punched flowers with tiny crystals in the center to decorate..Thank you for visiting xx

Purple and Black Christmas.. Glitter n Sparkle Weekly Challenge

I coloured the lovely image in with Polychromos onto neenah card,then fussy cut her and the penguin out.. The papers are Papermania from the Digital do crafts I have on my pc ,I used these as I knew I could change the colours to purple ,as you do not get that many pretty ones around ..Once printed off I mounted onto black card stock ,And the centerpiece I drew a rough border around and coloured with CC , SN New Sparkle pens,this I also did to the fur on the images too and the lilac flowers on the embellishments, sadly with the white light no matter how I angle them this does not show ,yet they are very pretty in real time.. For the dies I used Marianne designs for the Pointsetia,,CC ivy die and Tattered Lace for the other dies...I mounted the backing papers onto an 8x8 card base ,then added the other papers as shown..I added the topper with 3D gel glue to give depth and decided to use some silver in the foillage as it is a Christmas card and it would have been a bit dismal in black and purples hence I went with the silver and Lilac..To finish I added some snowflake gems I purchased of Ebay..Get so many bargains on there lol..Thank you for visiting,enjoy your day xx

Filled With Love.. MyBesties UK DT Same but Different Card

Hiya todays card is a Same but Different card as it is that time of the month where the team all colour the same image and it is amazing how different each card is ..I coloured her onto Neenah card with Polychromos Pencils and added some highlights on the flower,heart, fur,bow and Lettering with my SN Sparkle pens..The bottom pic shows this off a bit clearer. I then fussy cut her out.. The background papers are from Dovecraft's Krafty Christmas paper pad,and all were mounted onto craft card.The top layer is from my Tonic pad and I did a fancy border around the edge and coloured around it using my Red Sparkle pen,just to give a sparkle and interest too. I layered all my papers onto a 7x7 card blank then added the Bestie to one side ..I cut some poinsetias and hand coloured each one on Centura Pearl with a hint of gold ..this gives an under glow to the inks and the pearl gives that nice satin finish..The small flowers are from a Britania die and the bigger a Marrianne die .I also sprinkled the odd punched snowflake here and there too..To finish I added green faux pearls to pick up the green on the dress.Thank you for visiting :)xx
