Nautical My Besties

There are only two of us doing this one as there is an extra week in this month..And as it was my choice and happens to be my Dads Bithday I chose this one ,because he was in the Royal Nave for 23 yrs and I put to Daddy's little girl on it..That was me lol..memories xx ..I coloured her in with polychromos pencils onto Neenah card.Please note though that the image you buy is only the Bestie and the little boat..The background is all my own art work.I used an 8x8 card and a couple of pieces of paper from my paper stash as a background,sorry cannot remember as they are seperate from a pad and no doubt years old,but were just right for this project.One was mounted on the craft card for the insert and the other for the front. The Topper was a large one so really did not need any extra embellishment as this took in the region of eight hours to colour and add art work too also ..I added this with 3D glue gell and then put a sentiment down the side .. This one is dedicated to my Dad ..Love you forever and a day xxx

Glitter n Sparkle Weekly Challenge ..Add Buttons

Todays card is a really cute Bunny from Bugaboo Stamps..Love these they always colour up so nicely..I coloured her in with Polychromos pencils on Neenah card and mounted her onto craft card....Then taking an 8x8 card blank I then cut the background of pink dots from my Papermania Birthdays cd. for both the insert and front and mounted them onto craft card ,then onto card blank. Then I cut a piece of paper with pretty flowers on from one of my other Papermania kits ,backed it with craft card and added wibbly wobbly lines around as a feature.This was then glued in place ..The pretty pink bird paper was cut to resemble a flap and also was mounted to craft card ,this I drew on faux stitching and added with 3D glue gell..I then added the topper with 3D glue and placed the sentiment where I wanted it and popped the button from my button box in place once I had tied a bit of orange spotty ribbon through it...The actual stamp is just the bunny and the clouds are my addition so you will not find the stamp on the same image ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Raise Your Glasses Girls its Selina's 21 st Again

This is a lovely fun image from Bugaboo Stamps..For this girls night themed challenge..I turned it into a bit of a fun card as I only had a single image..I have coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card.. The background behind stamps my own artwork.. I then popped it first onto Black card then onto Craft card to set it off .. I used an 8x8 card and used papers from my First Editions Pad called Love Letters.. I used an 8x8 card blank and used craft card to mount my backing papers inside and out..The Front I used two papers the top one I turned and stuck down ,then trimmed to fit the other piece..this added more interest and also a bit of sparkle as it has small flowers on with encapsulated flowers on it..I then added it to the craft card ,then onto the card. I used a strip of gems down the one edge and then finished with one of the Tattered Lave flowers from the trio sets ,then I cut some ivy leaves from another trio set ,drew some branches and added then to the card..Finally I added the pearl to the center and the Sentiment ...Thank you for visiting :)xx

 Achieved ....Top Three at Crafting With Attitude

Glitter n Sparkle weekly Challenge

I love this image I have done for this challenge ..It is one I did for one of my very first Challenges in the days before I blogged and had time for other things lol.. She is a beautiful East Winds Stamp called  Aurora Floral Kiss ,beautiful huh!.. I coloured her on Neenah card using Polychromos pencils I then mounted her onto craft card to keep it more natural..I used an 8x8 card blank and papers from a craft pad I got from the Lidl Supermarket last year ..They work perfect with this image keeping it pretty and light ,but has encapsulated glitter ,so giving it a bit of a sparkle too. I mounted this onto craft card and added to card blank. Then I also added a section of embossed card I had done ages ago ,Phew! saved getting the machine out lol!..I kept this plain White as I wanted the card to look nice and fresh. I then added to craft card and mounted to card.The Topper was then added with 3D glue gell and I really wanted to leave it like this but decided to go on but to embellish with very pale blue So I cut out a Joanne sheen banner in Centura Pearl and coloured it with my pens ,gives it a lovely shimmer even under the pens , The butterfly is i believe a Marianne die and I cut a white blank for the background to help hold its shape and bent it all ..the gold in the Centura Pearl glimmers through the wings very pretty I added With Love down the one edge and tiny crystal gems to finish..  I Use white daylight light for the pictures and they look lovely ,but the cards always look much nicer in Real Time..Thank You for visiting ,It does mean a lot to me :)xx

Paperdolls Wedding card

Hiya ..Todays card is for a Guest Designer post over at a friends blog..I coloured the beautiful image on Neenah card and using Polychromos pencils ..I then mounted it onto craft card..Its my new gold ,it goes with everything and just looks so nice too .The papers are from a Hobby Crafts own pad which is called The Spring Time Collection ..Sadly now falling to pieces and nearly gone ,such a good pad too .These were mounted onto the craft card too..I then tor a few scraps left from a previous project and stuck these down across the page,to break the red colour up. .I then added the Topper with 3D glue gel and got my new toy out ..You must get one ..the little Spellbinders Saphire ..I would be lost without it ..Now I cut all my flowers with it  as I craft into the early hrs its quiet and easy to use as its so small..So I cut the flowers using Centura pearl and then coloured them with Gilding past ..another cool product , I think that they have made the card look rich and added a bit of fun too ...These I popped together with my 3D glue gel and added my new super shinny new gems to the centers..My ebay buys costs peanuts lol..Thanks for visiting and I hope you like my card :)xx

My Besties UK ..Same but Different

Hiya its half way through the challenge and its time for the same but different inspiration card .. This on is such a cutie too..She is coloured using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,then I mounted her onto black card. The base card which was a 7x7 blank had all four corners trimmed off ,but I decided I wanted to trim the bits off level under and above the Topper..I then cut some paper from a pevious project I believe it was one of the Crafter's Companion ones,but without going through all the cd's I can not tell you which one ..I then mounted this onto black card and added to the card ..Glued on the topper with 3D glue gell ,and arranged flowers on each corner .I then added the sentiment to finish ..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Glitter and Sparkle DT card ..Stepper Card

Today's card is a first for me I have had my TL stepper Dies for ages and just not had the courage to use them..part of it being not too sure on the decorating bit of here is my first attempt lol!..See we all learn as we go along . I used the beautiful image from East Winds and coloured her in with coloured Pencils, then mounted her onto Bright pink pearl card.I used Centura Pearl with a hint of gold for the main card,because its a good substantial card.. The paper is from the Crafter's Companion Kimono CD mounted once more on the bright pink Pearl card. The branches are the Blossom branches from the same Kimono Range too ..Very useful little die too and pretty little flowers with it too..Hence forth I went a bit crazy ,but I really like it and think it really sets the stamp of beautifully too..Thank you for visiting ,but don't sit too long or I may stick branches and Blossoms on you lol! :)xx
