Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Reminder Card

Hiya..For the challenge reminder card ,I have coloured the lovely Mia in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,I then cut her out leaving a small white outline around her to help her pop off the background paper..The papers I have used are from Crafter's Companion English Country Garden Paper pas ..The die cut for the Aperture and clothes are from China so name unknown ,but ideal for this card..I hand coloured all the accessories..Pens GRRRR!!! the tops show PINK and they come out orange ,my light in the front room is not that great and it was not until they were all done that I tried them under the White light by the pc that I found out..However you go in shops and their designs dont always match your clothes..In fact I think it has given a pretty pop of contrasting colour to the card..The papers were mounted onto craft card ,and the pretty flowers were punched using a punch from Hobbycraft I have had for a while ,as were the leaves..To finish I added some pretty faux multy pearls which make a nice center for the flowers ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sasayaki Glitter New Release

Hiya..I made this card base a few weeks ago and never used it.. Found it tonight and it just suited this cute image and what I wanted to do with it so much.. I finally got to use it ,so waste not ,hording craft stuff is very important!!! ,everything can be used lol!..
The lovely image is coloured using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,It was then cut out using a stitched stamp die ,then mounted onto gold card,cut straight then Centura Pearl in Pink..The flower has been cut from the Centura Pink card too using a Tonic Gerber Die..I just love these dies the whole set really makes a statement if using just one or as a group...I have on this occasion left it so there is no backing on the flower to keep it looking soft and light ,In the center I have places a vintage button to which I have placed a new sparkling blue gem ,this picks the blue out of the wings,and off the sprinkles on the cake..The backing card is from Kanban and is white with silver overprinted and picks the light up as you move past it ,but more softly than if it was all silver..To finish ,I added three pink gems to the bottom corner just to add a bit more sparkle ..I am very pleased with the colours they have worked lovely together on this card so pretty,making it look lovely and fresh ..Thanks for popping by :)xx

Morgan Fitszimmons Artworld New Release card

Hiya..For today's New release I have chosen to do this beautiful image,I have coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..This I then cut our and mounted onto some dark green mirror card..For the card base I have used Tonic Essentials Ribbon and Bows Layering dies,these I have backed each one with the dark green mirror card which just glints through the gaps in the die cut edges of the white layers..I chose to do this ,as the inspiration came from looking at some of the old bowls and plated that had the latice edges and this image when it was finished suited the style so well,I think so anyway..It looks nice on her but in real it is so stunning ,Being held by a Plastic plate holder at the moment as I still need to make the card holder for it ..The flowers ..I kept very simple ,hand coloured as well as the leaves to get the right shade I wanted ,these were both cut from dies I brought from Ebay and are from Hong Kong.. so have no makers name with them ..,so those who are thinking of buying them and are a bit worried ,don't be ,dies are expensive ,especially when you first start out and it helps to build your stash up without having to break the bank..They cut fine and have not had any problems with mine..To finish I added a few cream flat back pearls..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Late DT card for 613 Avenue..Floral Shoe

Hiya..I checked what was our project earlier and it seemed a creative piece,so I have not coloured ,but have made a floral 3D shoe for the new challenge that begins today.. For the body I cut out using a Tattered Lace 3D shoe die ..However there are a lot of shoe templates available for free on the internet ,so look around and you will find some really nice ones..I used Santorio Mirabelle paper pad with gloss roses on to construct the shoe with as it is thick and stiff and holds well in 3D work..Once I cut the shoe I folded all the little tabs down ready to stick down..I started with glue but found it not working for me in this case,but the tabs are very small on this die..So instead I used the red high tack red glue ,attached to the base of the shoe then gradually went around sticking the upper part of the shoe to the sole..Then I covered the tags with a bit of pink Centura Pearl so it looks neat underneath as well as giving it extra support..You will probably not have the same problem with the glue it was too fiddly for me to use,as my fingers are stiff and sore from arthritis and for me this is a very rare project ..but I do love creating different things as a change from cards.The flowers and leaves and roses are from some dies I have had from some time and been in my die caddy on magnetic sheets so I do not know the name of them,the smaller flowers are from punches and are just the right size to complement the roses..all these were added with 3D glue gel..Shape your flowers for things like this and for cards ,they look so much more natural looking than just cut out flowers stuck down ,it is what makes the card or project..I have to make a box for it but as I have been up all night I need sleep first ,but I will put the picture on when I have finished ..Thanks for popping by :)xx

Saturday Sketch card Little Miss Muffet

Hiya ,I am back after the Christmas extended break due to being unwell ,what a bad month I hope you have not had the bad colds that have been going around,Just got over a chest infection then caught mine lol ... I never do things by halves ..But feel much better now,and I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas..
For this pretty card I have used a Little Miss Muffet digital stamp ,the link for it is above, I have coloured her on Neenah card using Polychromos pencils,I then cut her out and mounted her onto some lilac Centura Pearl to frame her..The papers I used are from a pad from GCD Melody Ross Design Collection and this pad is the Lydia collection ..very lush, rich ,pretty papers,sadly coming to an end now. You can see by the sketch under the card I have followed the layout ..Was a bit worried about this team to begin with but i find it is quite good fun finding the matching papers to create the sketches and its a change from having to design from scratch..So please do pop over and have a go at the challenge,who knows you could have your card picked out...Thank you for popping by :)xx
