613 Avenue Create Challenge ..Time For Tea Digital Stamps

Hiya ,here is today's card for the challenge at 613 Avenue Create Challenge.. For this I have chosen this adorable Time for Tea Digital Stamp.. Well worth a visit to the Etsy store as there are all sorts of beautiful digi's to find there covering all sorts of occasions too.. I have coloured her in using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah Solat Crest Card.. I cut her out with a X-Cut Die and mounted her onto craft card.. Then using an 8x8 blank I used papers from my DCWV  Fresh Floral Stack,mounted them onto craft card and built the layers as you can see..I then added a white strip and popped faux stitching between some pretty red floral buttons and did a little bow half way between each of them.. I rarely put sentiments on as I do this when the cards are given away as I also usually add the name on there too ..Makes receiving a card much more special don't you think.. Thank you for popping by and looking and do click on the link on the right hand of my blog at the top and it will take you directly to 613 Avenue create Challenge where you will see the other DT's beautiful work too  :)xx

Morgan Fitszimons Hatchling Dragon ( Puff The Magic Dragon ) Card.

Dont be shocked ..This is the latest Crafters Companion Release Cd ..I have used one of the Hatchling Dragons and have coloured her in with Coloured Pencils and the background is done with Chalks on Neenah card..She is one of the many digi stamps on disc 2 and no doubt you will see more over the next few months as I so love her work..I have used the backgrounds from disc one and mounted them onto craft card,done the same with the insert too. then I used a Tonic wide oval die from the Verso range,cut out the Dragon and then mounted onto the craft card after I rough cut it around to give a small border..I then attached this to the card with 3D Collall Glue Gel.. The flowers are also from Crafter's Companion Flowers for all Occasions I believe and I cut these out of white card,and for softness I used a new product I am trying and that is Faber Castell Gell sticks ..You just rub a little on a couple of of petals then gently rub into the petals,they give a nice soft feel to the petals too and are almost instantly dry..I then shaped the petals and added to the card and then popped pink gems into the centers to finish..I always use Collall glues throughout my cards as I trust them and know even with posting and storage my cards last..Even the gems get glued on too so there is no chance of a card being spoilt by loosing its bling lol..Thanks for visiting :)xx

Same But Different My Besties UK inspiration card

Todays Card is a cheerful Summery card to go with the lovely little Bestie..I have coloured her using Polychromos on Neenah card and Matted all the papers onto Craft card.The Papers are from The Floral Stack from Die Cuts With a View..I chose lilac as its so fresh and summery and added some pink into the image, and into the background with a beautiful piece of velvet shocking pink ribbon.The flowers are by Tattered Lace,their new Triples I think..These have a small embossing folder with them..These photos do not show how stunning these flowers look in real time, sadly.The background foliage is from Crafters Companionand Believe it to be called Foliage Trio ..This has all been kept white to keep the freshness to the card and I used a SN PenPP5 to dot the embossed dots in the centers and just to make the centers pop ...Thanks for visiting :)xx

40th Ruby Anniversary Moonbeam Meadows Card

Hiya ..As you all know I create for Crafter's Companion.. I like to use their papers and images expecially the stamps as you know Colouring is really my favourite..I was asked to make this by a friend for someone she knows ..I did now want a traditional 40 th Anniversary card as everyone has those so I wanted Wow and you can Produce Wow with Crafters Companion the papers are excellent and the images are just delightful.. I have used the kissing mice from Moonbeam Meadow Everyday ..I have coloured them with Polychromos as my hands are sore at the moment and these are a lot softer for me and also thicker..But I must state YOU CAN get the same results from SN Pencils too as they are also my other set of pencils:) ..I used an oval frame set from Tonic called Art Nouveau..this was requested by my friend as she had seen it on another card I had done ..this is why the card has not got my CC. Design team Badge on it ...
But the papers which I mounted onto red card are from the cd..Then I used one of Sheena;s 5x7 India embossing folders onto some pink card to add texture ,backed with rec card too ..I then added the topper with Collall 3Dglue gell and cut out the Wild Rose Briar also from Sheena ,from the perfect partner range ,I colured the leaves with a CG3 ,SN pen and the petals with a Faber Castell Gell stick..Added a bow with spparkly shimmery hearts on it  to the top of the frame and added the leaves and flowers with the 3D glue gel, to finish I added some white quilled strips to the centers for something a little different ..Thank you for visiting :)xx 

And trying out for the design team at

Scrappers Delights FB Inspiration Card

Hiya ..Todays card from Scrappers Delights is an inspiration card for the Face Book Challenge.. I used a latge tonic die throughout to cut firstly the card back,out of 300 gsm Craft card, Cutting two pieces for the main card ,then I folded about an inch down on the back piece . This was then glued down with a quick tack strong wet glue..This needs to be a strong hold as you do not want the card to fall to pieces on someones shelf . I then pit this to one side to allow to thoroughly dry.The main topper is coloured with Faber Castell Pencils on Neenah Solar White card..I then uded a smaller die of the same set these are by the was Tonics Celtic Dream Dies..but this time as i only wanted a small difference between the actual topper and black suround I drew around the inside of the die I wanted to use ,then hand cut..Then for the the black card I drew around the outside of the same die and I got a small but neat backing of black card..I know its a bit excessive ,but it is well worth it sometimes.I glues the black down to the card and then using 3D glue by Collall I then attached the topper..Finally I die cut some small clouds from Crafter's Companion and glued to finish..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Rick St.Dennis 16th Birthday cards for Grandson

Well my lovely Grandson turned 16 on June 3rd and he is a big fan of The Walking Dead and any thing gruesome or scarey,just like his mum lol.So what better than to go for one of Rick St Dennis Digi stamps..I coloured the images in with my Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card, and both are on 8x8 bard blanks so they are quite large too. ..They took some thinking out and a lot of resourcing for grungy stuff for the backing papers but I am pleased with how they have turned out and so was he I took the pictures in natural light and sorry I really do not think they do these cards Justice..Thanks for Looking :)xx.

My Besties UK Challenge Inspiration (Ribbon)

This is one of Sherri's newer releases,such a pretty little image ..I have coloured her in using Faber Castelle Polychromos pencils on Neenah Solar White 216 gsm card..As I was colouring her I was thinking how romantic and sweet she was so I created an aurora borialis sort of effect on her dress and then added pretty deep pink roses..topped her with a gorgeous golden crown on her Jet black with blue highlight hair.. I have taken a lot of pictures ,but sadly she is not showing up as beautiful as she actually is in real life.. I have also used Crafter's Companion Papers from the Moonbeam meadows throughout and the matching insert too..The embossing folder I used on the right hand side is one of Sheena's Indian ones a 5x7 one and has given the card a bit of texture.. I added one of those fantasy sort of colour ribbons to the left panel as this picks the colour of the card up lovely and adds a bit of glamour too..To finish I added a tag with the cut out of the flower punch in it and backed with the same card as the rest of the matted pieces.. I glued the topper on with Collall 3D glue gel then punched a lot of flowers ,shaped and added the pearls and stuck on with 3D glue too,and added the label..Thank you for Looking :)xx
