Scrappers Delights .. Grahams Birthday

Well Its my Grandsons birthday in a few days and I could not have found a better image for a four year old who is just as cute as the little lad in the image lol ..I have coloured him in with Polychromos pencils on Neenah card  ,then I have fussy cut him out as I wanted him to stand proud from the background.The card I created on my Cameo ond dod the layers so I cannot really take credit for that as the machine did the cutting... Oh ok I did tweaking in the design studio and added this and that and was tickled pink when it worked lol.. Only first play since Christmas as I have been so busy with DT work .. Obviously stuck everything together ,did some faux stitching around the layers to make them pop and added the image with 3d glue gell.. I think this is a lovely fun image and makes a beautiful card for kids there is also a girl in the shop ,but she just has on a all-in -one .. Thanks for Visiting :)x

Papernest Dolls Valentine

I have used one of Christine' lovely Papernest dolls for my Davey's Valentine's card this year I have matted and layered the background onto black card and the black and white card both from a DCWV paper pad ,and then layered a strip to go across the middle ..I think the two bold patterns work brilliant together.The image was coloured on Neenah card using coloured Pencils and I added some gems to the string of hearts,scattered a few more around the card . And added some felt roses I got at Christmas from Hobbycraft and popped a tag on..Thank You for visiting :)X

My Besties I Love You ..Same But Different

So feeling a bit romantic with this one here i have done it in fun colours but made it rich with a nice Lacey look..I have used First Edition Paper from the Love Letter Pad,The one I have used a paper which has tiny encapsulated hearts in glitter all over it...I then used an aging tool to roughen up the edges to give it a more vintage feel too before gluing it onto some craft card ,then onto an 8x8 card blank..The image has been coloured on Neenah card with coloured Pencils .I wanted to add more colour than just using pink and white or red and white to I did my version and kind of like it more as it really looks great in real..It is such a shame that these lights although better light than the yellow,they do still take some of the colour out of your finished work..I mounted this onto craft card and drew rough lines to make an edge around the image.. I cut six small hearts from TONIC verso range I think they are there is a parasol ,bow heart and a cameo in the set..Sorry I do tend to throw packaging away but its bulky and I am struggling for space..These I laid around the edge of the topper and when I was happy with them I glued them down and then added the topper with 3D glue gel..The final finishing leaves and flowers are from Crafter's Companion, They are the new ones from Sheena's range..I just had to get these they are just simply gorgeous and can be used for so many cards too .. These were moulded and shaped and glued with 3D glue also ..Thanks for visiting :)x

 This card is made using a Card companion from the cd .I mounted the lovely pink background onto craft card then glued to the card with the all purpose glue..I used Craft Card a lot on these cards as I felt it really suited them. I matted all the other pieces that I had cut from the printout ,Nice and easy too ,then began layering using 3D gel glue to give plenty of depth,added a sentiment and tack and some simple white flowers and gems . To finish I added an insert inside the card  :)x

I mounted the backing paper onto Craft card and added it to the 8x8 card blank with all purpose glue..I then mounted the main topper and the smaller one and added to the card with 3D glue I then Made up the Bow ,a new thing on the cds now and popped in on the smaller topper so it overlapped and united the two pieces together..I then added a sentiment and gems and finally  an insert to the inside :)x

My Besties, Anything goes ,with a Silver

These adorable girls are what first got me into colouring and this is my first of what I hope of many DT post for them .. I have used silver as my background throughout and also coloured her hair silver too . Right from the beginning the lovely image is coloured in using Poly Chromos Pencils on Neenah solar white card .,I outlined the chosen die to go around her and hand cut it out paying attention to the tiny bows at her feet. I then did the same with the silver card as it was about four in the morning and being in a flat ..well you understand..The Tonic die-cut I already had so I coloured with BT2 and BT4 Spectrum Noir Pens to get a slight varied effect then I backed this with silver card too..These pieces were then all glued together with Collall 3D glue and set to one side whilst I started matting and layering my backgrounds up. The two papers both come from a fabulous paper pad by DCWV Fresh Floral Stack.. I mounted these all onto silver card using Collall All Purpose glue, Then added to a cream 8x8 card blank.. To finish I added the topper using Collall 3D glue and the flowers and hand written tag to give dimension ..
