613 Avenue Create Dt Card.. Alison

Hiya time to blog again..Todays card I have used a new artist from Etsy,her stamps are SMS Digital Stamps.Her name is Sara  Sherlook , , she  has some really lovely stamps and I think she will  grow with her experience in the stamp world.. I love doing stamps for the new Artists ,it helps to get their work shown and hopefully let them know we love their work too ,so please pop along and have a look at her other stamps ..Today I have chosen her lovely image called Alison..I have coloured her with Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card..I chose the colour for her dress because I do I admit shop on Ebay and I saw this paper pad by GSD called Melody Ross Collections  (Lidia Collection) ....Well the picture was a bit fuzzy and I missed it the first time ,but I got it the second time Soo Glad I brought it lol ..Yes I used it on this ..Well half of me wanted to and the other half wanted to keep it as it is amazing..All double sided papers Wow! ..Gold on it too! ,Flocking!..Just keep watching as I will be using this a lot I can assure you ..
 I mounted all my papers onto craft card as usual..but before I did I used the new Tattered Lace torn edge squares ,cut four in craft card,four in the gorgeous paper then glued them into place and added to a 8x8 card base..I then cut a TL torn edge ovale for the background of the image and carefully cut the image out and matted onto the the center using 3D glue gel..The flowers are from CC Sara 's Signature Collection English Country Garden Range ,it is Lazy Daisy..The flowers and leaves were coloured with CC Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to add the glitz..The Love word  is a TL Die and to finish I added a few gems..than you for visiting :)xxx

Blue Faery..Morgans Artworld Saturday Inspiration

Hiya ,todays card I have used one of the stamps from Morgan Fitzsimmons Flights of Fantasy from Crafter's Companion ,you can find it by clicking on the link of the cd's name below.I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card and have mounted her first onto craft card then onto Centura Pearl with a hint of Gold..The flowers are also made out of this too and I have coloured them with CC Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to go with the colours in the main picture.The Papers are from a First Editions pad called Neroli,these were also mounted onto craft card before being glued to the main base card which is 8x8 inches.I have coloured the leaves with the sparkle pens too but I have cut these from the off cuts of the craft card,this actually picks the glitter in the pens up much better..They are a nice way to add a gentle glitter and sparkle to your cards without spoiling the colour or making them look like you have tipped sugar on your work.The flowers are the new Tonic flowers called Sunburst Gazania..To finish the card I have added two pretty hearts,the tag will go on when it goes to the recipient ,as the few ladies I have like the cards named..Thank you for popping by Happy Crafting till Next Time :)xx

Away with the Fairies ..Sasayaki Glitter DT card

Just had to use the fab title this is just one of those cards I played and played on ..I think it took longer to make this one than any other ..It is for a seven year old Granddaughter who loves fairies..She is coloured onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils..The papers are from a pad I got from Liddl's a while back and have encapsulated glitter on them..I mounted these onto craft card..I cut the image out from TLace dotted fancy Circles and then cut a background from Basic Circles which just shows between the scallops..this was cut in craft card ..but a fairy needs sparkle so out came SN Sparkle Pens and I coloured around the edge of the circle and once dry I mounted the topper on top.Then I cut a strip of the same paper as the background ,matted with craft card and glued across center,then I cut another strip of craft card and sparkled with the pens again,then glued this on the top of the strip as you can see in the pics..I then cut two lots of  TLace  I think they are Springtime border flowers and hand coloured them with yes you guessed Sparkle pens again..The Butterflies are from Sara Davies Collection and also coloured with Sparkle pens ..It was fun being a kid again,but I am afraid its back to being a grown up again for my next card..Thank you for visiting .. Until next time Fairy Hugs n Kisses xx

Digital delights by Louby Lou.. Fore! a Special Brother

I could not resist this cheerful chap his name is Golfing Jimmie and ,well it even makes sports cute ..as you may guess I am not into sports at all...lol!..I have coloured him on Neenah card with Polychromos pencils,as I have the golfing Background too..The background and all the papers have been mounted onto Craft card..The papers are an odd few from my stash that go perfect with this ,from a pad from so long ago It had all checks and dot paper in ..I thought was great at the time,how we change over the years lol!.Now all the papers are patterned and bright and bold..but for this card I felt that these just worked perfect as I wanted to have Jimmie stand out and the background.The label is a computer generated one that goes nicely with this image as I have a plan for this card lol!,Brother may be a hint lol!..I added some dots wth my Pitt pen to look like a ball had bounced past the little lad into the hole,a little detail we can do to make our cards a little more special ..Thank You for dropping by :)xx

For a Special Friend..Sasayaki Glitter

Today I have this fab card, I have used one of the beautiful Sasayaki Glitter New Release images,coloured it onto Neenah card with Polychromos Pencils..I then mounted it onto black card..The papers I used for the background are from Polkadoodles Magic Garden CD Rom..So full of not only stunning papers but beautiful flowers ,toadstools and much more ..just love all Nikky Hall's cd's and Artwork..All of these are also mounted onto black card and layered onto the 8x8 card base.I have used the card with the crease at the top.Before adding the topper I printed a sentiment from pc and added to black card and popped just behind the topper ,then added it all to the card with 3D glue gel.To decorate I have cut out two of the new Tonic Gerbera Daisy flowers and leaves from Centura pearl and coloured with SN pens to co- ordinate with the card ,finishing with a pretty floral gem in orange..I usually cut the flowers in white card as I like to colour my own ..I used white with a hint of gold Centura Pearl ..this gives the flowers a pretty sheen even though they are hand coloured,also it it a super card for this type of flowers as it does tend to hold its shape and does hold up to posting and also to storing over time too..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Same but Different ..My Besties Uk DT Card

Its Same but Different day today over  at My Besties uk..Remenmber this is so you have further inspiration from the girls on the DT.. So you still have time to enter into this months Challenge,,so good luck .. As usual I have coloured my image onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils..I have backed the image onto black card,and also done so with the beautiful papers I have used from the First Editions Pad.. Floral Pavilion... Once mounted I applied them to the base card which is 8x8..I then glued the beautiful black felt cut out , I actually brought from Poundland ,onto the top layer and this had to be done with 3D glue as the normal glue just got sucked into the material..Once stuck I also used 3D glue to add the topper and to finish a beautiful satin black bow and gems..I wanted to make the card look fresh and very elegant and I think It worked well..Thank you for popping by :)xx

New Release Digital Delights by Louby Lou

It's New Release day at Digital delights today,and my project is using H for House ,it has a blank space at the top of the house, so I popped in Home rather than House as I wanted to create This card .I have had it in my head for a little while so I added it before colouring..The image is coloured with Polychromos Pencils from Faber Castell my favorite medium as most of you will be aware.I used Neenah card to colour it onto, another favorite as it holds all the layers of the pencils well.The Papers are a pack also from Digital Delights and the link is below, very useable and I have used them on several projects so far ,even though they are easter papers. I fussy cut the house out , cut all my papers to size and mounted them onto craft card and added them onto the card base ,this is an 8x8 blank card... The top layer I did a wiggle line thingy around it to frame it and placed the house where I wanted it before I was ready to stick it down, I then did a light pencil line where it sat so I could draw in the ground and the grass..This I did with a Faber Castell Pitt black Pen ,once done I used 3D Collall glue to pop the house onto the card ,I added the clouds and the stepping stones and a few birds in the background..I did not colour any of this in as I wanted the Stamp I had coloured to be the main feature of the card..I then added the computer generated sentiment to finish..It is something totally different but it does allow the coloured image to really jump from the card ..I actually love it for its simplicity ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Digital Delights by Louby Lou ..Hostess Monday

Hiya this is my very first Hostess Monday for Digital Delights..I thought I would create a box for this occasion as we as crafters always do cards ,but it is nice to to present a beautifully wrapped gift, and this one would be lovely for any girl from a little one to one like me ..Lol!. Firstly I created a box 180cm long  x135 wide x.40cm deep ..The base is made of 300gsm from CC Sheena's card and the top is made using Centura Pearl in a lovely purple /lilac. I have coloured the beautiful Flower Powered Dolled up Daisy. I have coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils from Faber Castell onto Neenah card,then fussy cut her out .I then started to decorate the box in which I used one of the papers from Digital Delights Blossoming Egg digital paper pack.I cut them into strips and mounted them onto white card and added them all around the box with a Collall Glue gel as I wanted it to grab tight and stay in place and be flexible as the lid will obviously be lifted off and on and weaker glue could cause then to drop off..To decorate the top I used Crafter's Companion Sara Davies collection dies throughout,cut once more from the same300 white card,The flowers and the words I coloured with Crafters Companion Sparkle Pens to add a little twinkle and finished with some pretty half pearls from my stash..Such a pretty fun project that can be used to keep little treasures in afterwards ,ideal when you have a little gift you want to make just that bit more special xx

Beach Beauty. 613 Avenue Create DT card

Todays fun card is done using a QKR Stampede Digi stamp..Just love this image..I have coloured her using SN Pens and Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..Yep thats right I used Pens lol,not very happy with them but I have had a heavy workload this weekend and needed to cut some time out,in the end it still took as long ..The background is all mine in pencils and so is the skirt and a bit of the shading on the beautiful shy girl lol .I have used Tonic Die to cut the main image out called Twisted Twine Square.Just useing the two outer dies.. I then backed in craft card  using a TL Basic Squares die ,just a little larger than the other to just show under the cut outs and over the edges..Gives that rope feel..The backing I have kept White and used a CC Embosalicious folder of Buntings to keep the beach feel.This was then mounted onto craft card to match the center.. Then added the center topper with 3D glue gel to give it a bit more depth.. I have kept this one CAS as I think the image tells its own story and t is just a lovely great fun card,both to create and to give ,will make anyone smile ..Thank you for popping by :) xx
