Morgans Artworld Red Witch

Hiya ..Today is my DT card for my Saturday Inspiration at Morgans Artword..I have created an alternative Halloween card..All withes are not green or nasty lol..I have coloured this image onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils, I then mounted her onto Black card..Trimmed all around the card with black lace to represent cobwebs. I then put another piece of black card onto the back to help hold the lace into position. Then taking a 7x7 card blank I created an easel card to which I added some backing papers from a Tonic Paper pad and mounted onto black card before gluing into place..I created a stopper and using the same lace and some black ribbone I decorated it before gluing into place..I added a small metalic ribbon bow and a red ribbon rose then glued the topper in position, adding a matching bow..To finish I added a few red faux pearls..Thank you for popping by xx

A Little Bit of Fantasy with Julia Spiri Challenge DT card

Hiya , Todays card is Julia Spiri's lovely little Genie, reminds me of I Dream of Genie that used to be on telly when I was a kid whoops showing my age now lol..I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card and cut her out as I did not want any background ,white or my own behind her.The papers are from a Papermania cd on my Do crafts cd as I remembered this pretty background that I wanted and thought it would be just perfect for this card..All the papers are mounted onto purple card before being glued to the 8x8 card base.On top of the middle layer I used an offcut of the purple card and wraped some lace I found in the bottom of my ribbon box..I then ran a ribbon across the middle and attatched to the paper using Collall 3D glue gel .I then mounted the final piece that was going to hold the image using 3D glue gel.. I then Cut and embossed two half doileys from the Crafters Companion Downton Abbey range in white and coloured with a Tim Holtz Milled Lilac ink pad.. And cut a Purple frame frome one of the offcuts of card,usung one of the ornate frames rom the Downton Abbey range also..Love these dies they are just stunning ..I carefully added gel glue behind these cut pieces and popped them in place as shown.Added the Label,a few flower gems and jewel gems and finally a bow to match the ribbon to finish..Thank you for visiting xx

Had fun with this one too this is my own creation ..I coloured the Sami stamp up in Polychromos Pencils..I just love her and thought shame she has no hat I drew one out on Paper then cut it out in black card,first I drew everything on in white pencil and felt it was not enough so I then went all around it all with my white pen ,put some red and yellow on the background ,placed the cut out witch in place .It looked fine so 3D  gel glued  her into place and cut a strip of grass from an off cut of cordinations in green , drew on some leaves and stalks and popped on some faux pearl flowers to bring the purple down.. I then popped a small stand onto the back so it will stand on its own..Thank you for visiting my blog xx

My First Saturday Card Inspiration for Morgan Fitzsimmons Artworld

I first came across Morgan's stamps when Crafter's Companion brought out their cd Flights of Fantasy..Well I just love her work and was thrilled to be asked as a guest designer when I won with my Pink Dragon a while ago..To feel dissapointed as with my health problems affecting my eyes..I can colour ,but sitting in front of Pc was a problem as affected my vision ..I could not be on team as you need to comment ..But they found a space for me I have a Saturday spot every fortnight so here is my first yippee..This Beautiful lady is coloured using Polychromos onto Neenah card..I have used a Tattered Lace center stepper die for the card ,which saves me folding and pain ..,The papers are from a Do Crafts capsule I have on my  Digital designer by them..all are mounted onto craft card..I love craft card ,it is my new gold ..It understates some papers and allows them to shine and allows others to fit nicely as if they were meant to be.. After all the Matting and layering I decorated with CC Diesire Ivy die and with Spellbinders Bitty blossoms 6 my new go to flower as they are just a nice size ..The actual topper is cut from one of the Spellbinder label dies but sorry I cannot remember which... You will note a lot of my cards do not have tags on..this is because I label them when they are given away or sold as I personalise most of mine ..Thank you for visiting I really do appreciate you taking the time .Hugs xx

Add Some Pink..Glitter n Sparkle Weekly Challenge DT Card

This week I have had the pleasure of colouring my very first Lemon Shortbread digi stamp Its a slightly different Halloween card ..The image is definately a Halloweene Fairy ,but I felt I wanted to do a bit of a different twist to the card after all if we all did the same ,why have the fun of the challenged lol  ..Unfortunately it has not turned out quite like I wanted it too ,I chose Purple as the dress colour and wish I had not It tends to do funny,it did it once before and I forgot grrr!!.. Anyway she is coloured in Polychromos on Neenah card and all the papers are from a pad I got from Liddl last year,and these have encapuslated glitter on them which adds a pretty shimmer..I have mounted all of these onto craft card and my coloured piece.The main papers have all been added to the 8x8 card base with Collall all purpose glue and the topper by 3D Collall gel glue..The flowers are cut from Pink Centura Pearl with Dies from Sue Wilson Collection called Cornflowers ,but the leaves are from a punch from Hobycraft .I also added some pearls and some lace to the brown spotted paper before mounting it too ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Shaped card ..My Besties Uk DT Card

I have had loads of fun creating this today....The beautiful Mermaid is coloured on Neenah card using a cheap pencil from Hong Kong that a friend of mine had got,I brought some for my Granddaughter ,but I think they will stay with me ..They are Marco Rafine coloured Pencils,oil based and sold in a set of 72..Yes they are nice to use.. Not as good as my Polychromos but I think if I remember I paid £12 or so for them and they are well worth the money,so for a beginner who wants to try pencils a great start as they are really creamy and layer really good.
This project is a wall hanging to sit next to my PC and replace a very weary one I did about two years ago..I have used Tonic Celtic Dream Dies and a Tattered Lace fancy circles for the blue outer ring.. I cut them out in Centura Pearl in Pink,Blue and Beige..And the flowers and leaves are Crafter's Companion wild briar from Sheena's collection.. A couple of the rings have been hand cut to get the next colour in ,but most by my E-Bosser.. I have if you see the last picture added the layers by using 3d Glue gel by Collall ,and used it to apply the flowers and the gems too..I hope you like it ..thank you for visiting

 is one of Julia's latest release.. and I just wanted to do an autumn feel card as the days are drawing in now..I have coloured her on Neenah card with Polychromos pencils..I just love oranges and brown they aleays look so rich . and Must be my favourite colours of allThen cut her out with a Tonic die, and a matching one in craft card ,then used 3D glue gel to mount onto craft card and popped to one side to dry..I then cut and mounted papers from my DCWV Fresh Floral Stack pad onto craft card..then using a thin off cut of craft card I used permanent fix spray glue and covered the strip with Wow fine Glitter..I love this glitter as it covers so well and actually looks shop brought..You know what I mean girls...I then trimmed to size and mounted all the pieces on the card blank. I then once more used 3D glue gel and placed the topper in the desired position .I have just brought a new set of dies from TLace so thought why not so I cut out the fabulous Ava Flower in craft card and used Gilding wax on it to make it look like old metal..and to finish I added the tiniest crystals to the tiny flowers and it looks so pretty and sparkly..It is a shame the pics do not really pick this up ,but I hope you get the general idea..Thank You for visiting,I really do appreciate your support and comments :)xx
