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

Something Old From Your Stash ..Julia Spiri Stamps

Todays lovely image from Julia Spiri is coloured using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card.. My something old from my stash is the last bits of off cuts of paper from my Hobbycraft pad from about two yrs ago ,the front has long since gone and there are just a couple of full papers and odd off cuts,these being some of them...I mounted them all onto craft card and added a die cut border from CC Downton Abbey , as the border so pretty ..Once in place I cut out two of the smaller flowers  from my Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms 6 ,just got these and already love them ..I used a free paper pad from a magazine for the flowers and top of the butterfly..the leaves and underside of the butterfly are cut from cor dinations cardstock and to finish I added some tiny crystals to add a touch of sparkle ..Thank you for visiting :)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

Holiday Mistletoe Nymph ..613 Avenue Create DT Card

This beautiful image is by Aurora Wings, I do not get many chances to colour her work..this is where I started my journey into Blogging ..I have coloured it in with Polychromos pencils onto Nehnah card..The backing card is cut using one of Tattered Laces Essential dies.I then cut a top section in craft card and covered the bottom with embossed card from a CC Embolishus folder from the Vintage Christmas collection..to which I treated it with Gilding wax to give the worn vintage effect.I did the same to the surrond to the top of the card and the Tonic Snowflake from the Rococo range..When done I added the Snowflakes with 3Dglue gel,a stopper to the bottom and the topper .and to finish I added a few felt flowers left over from last year I brought from Hobbycraft..Thank you for stopping by :)xx

Julia Spiri Add Some Bling DT card

Todays card I have taken a 7x7 card and cut it diagonally..The image
 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
