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

Hiya ,this is a simple quick card ,but so pretty..I have coloured it with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,then mounted it onto some beautiful teal card..Then using Dovecrafts Krafty Christmas Paper pack I chose a pale blue spot for the background and also mounted it onto the same card ..This was then added to a 7x7 card base..I then punched out what felt like a hundred snowflakes ,in between chasing my puppy off as she was trying to help lol..I did these in the off cuts in the teal card and in white.. I added the topper with 3D glue gel then decorated with the snowflakes..first I shaped then so they added some depth,once on to finish I added some tiny blue gems to add a touch of sparkle

I then punched a lot of leaves from scrap card using a die I got from Hobbycraft as it is Late and sorting through loads of dies at two in the morning is not my favorite pass time lol ..These I couloured with my SN pens to mirror the lovely Autumn colours and once I added the Topped with 3D glue gel and a stopper I then placed as shown..to finish I added a Bird charm and a twine Bow thingy ..very technical I know lol..but it is four in the morning lol ...Thank you for visiting :)xx

Add a Sentiment .. Jullia Spirri DT Card

Todays pretty image i altered a touch by putting a couple of lines at the neckline to look like she has a jumper on,so I turned her from a summer image to a winter one ..outside the box thinking and I coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I coloured her arms in as if she had a long sleeve jumper on and I popped tights under her little socks too....When done I drew around a Sue Wilson Die and added some detail of my own to make it stand out a bit more then mounted her onto some gold card and fussy cut around it to ad a bit of shine around the edge..I then went around the pen and pencil edge with Crafter's Companion new Sparkle pens to give a bit of sparkle ,subtle but pretty.The backing papers I have used are Dovecrafts Krafty Christmas and these were mounted onto craft card..Because I used a deckle edged card I rounded the corners on the one side as I like mine that way as it feels odd to me to do the same on the straight edge too ..The gold edge border is a Crafters Companion Christmas Egability and was used to pull the gold through from the topper ..The Dies for the poinsettias are ..Larger ..Mariane Designs and the small I believe are Britania Dies..The Ivy is  Crafters Companion.. I added a sentiment ,backing with craft card and red pearls to the center of the flowers to finish..Thank you for popping by..I really do appreciate you coming by and your support :)xx

Add Some Red ..Glitter n Sparkle DT Card

Hiya, this weeks card is using a Morgan Fitzsimons Stamp.. I have coloured it using Polychromos Pencil Neenah card.. All the papers are from Crafter's Companion cd Flights of Fantasy featuring Morgans beautiful artwork and also a full disc just dedicated her digital stamps ,so pop on to their shop here is the link to the cd  Flights of Fantasy by Morgan Fitszimmons ..All the layers are mounted and layered onto CC craft card,and the papers that I have used have come from the co -ordinating papers section ,I did adjust the red background to suit myself on the cd..
After putting the initial red background onto the 8x8 card I then used a smaller oblong piece in a nice green dot to start the matting ,then did a thinner strip and put a thin layer of red through it ,all the layers are matted onto craft card ,but explained so that those who are newer at card making can understand.. The topper was then matted onto Craft card and I cut a piece of the beige linen effect to create a faux frame around the image because it is a very busy one and it got lost on the other papers..I then added the topper to this and then mounted to the card using 3Dglue gel by Collall ,my go to glue as it fixed anything ,but also lifts the topper slightly giving the card a bit more depth..All that was needed was four faux Pearl gems to bring the beige though to the other side ..Label will go on when sent or sold ..Thank you for visiting :)xx
