613 Avenue Create Card

Hiya,for this months challenge card I have used an Inky Impressions image,been along time since I was on their team..This is actualy an mage I have used once before but I liked it so as it was in my file I decided to use it again..I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card,This was then cut and mounted onto Mirror card as was the papers that I used for the background..These are from one of the Christmas cds from Polkadoodlesone of the resent ones with the little girl on..,I have not got these colour ways in my paper pads and as I had printed these before I got ill a few weeks ago I thought I would use them on this card...I love Nicky's cd so full of fabulous crafting goodies,sadly just had no real time to do any but one which I have coloured ,but not carded yet..sorry I digress..I wanted the colours on both the image strong and bold ,and to  finished the card I went  with a beautiful bright red spotted ribbon and added some faux pearl snowflakes  and a sentiment which was also mounted on gold Mirror card..
Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sketch Saturday Card

Hiya I have coloured this super cute little Pixie from A Day for Daisies with PolyChromos Pencils onto Neenah card..She has then been cut out using a Tattered Lace Basic ovals die set.as was the gold frame too...For this team I am on we are given a sketch to design our card with ..It is kind of cool takes all the design work out of it in some ways,but there is still the choice of papers ..I have that many pads its getting so hard to choose now ...It is like shoes ,cannot pass a paper pad hehehe!..This design should have been landscape but the image I had would not have looked nice on that,so I did mine portrait,but used the same design base for the card..I actually enjoy doing these cards ,I was worried at first but need not have been lol..The papers that I have used throughout are from First Edition Vintage Christmas ,Very luxurious and I have taken the picture to shoe the lovely foiling on the card..Its a shame that the photos do not really do justice to this card .All the papers were mounted onto gold Mirror card..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Saturday Inspiration ..Morgans Artworld

Hiya Today I have once more followed the theme of the challenge which is Tag It.. I have created a fairly large tag..This I have coloured with my new Zig Pure Color Water Color Brush pens..My first project I have done,practices had not gone well but this one has for some unknown reason lol..Love the vibrant colours they have .. We often forget the tags,humble as they may seem ,but hoe they can turn that over-sized present into much more..that is where these larger Tatered Lace Basic Tag dies come in..I have layered the image after cutting it out onto some pink simmering card from First Editions floral Pavilion then mounted onto gold Mirror card .. I added another tag this is from Docrafts one of their small dies but extremely handy little die..I backed it with white card so it did not look hollow once I popped it in place and also to help support it ..then I added a pretty red polka dot bow and ribbon to tie it to the gift too ,and to finish I cut two butterflies and shaped them and stuck down with 3D glue gel ,make unknown as I have had these on a magnetic sheet in a box for ages..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sorry although this image is a Morgan Fitszimmon's image..

Digital Delights by Louby Lou ..New Release

Hiya this was a really fun card to make..I coloured the lovely image in with my Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card ,then fussy cut it out leavind a small white line around her..I then created the card usinga template of a mitten from Dutch Doo Ba Doo,The outer card is cut from Gold Centura card and the inner card is a paper printed from a Polkadoodles cd I went around the edge of it with a faux stitch on the inside and out of the card... To decorate the mitten I used pretty lace at the bottom and some check ribbon and once I had stuck my image on with 3D glue gel and added the sentiment I added a variety of colours and sizes of punched snowflakes to the card..It is very novel and I was a bit worried when I started as never done anything like this ,but once I got going I was fine ,in fact it was more fun than I have had in making a card for ages as it was outside the box ..Thank you for popping by :) xx

Morgans Artworld.>Saturday Inspiration

Hiya,for todays card I have for the first time coloured an image twice..I loved this one last year ,so as I am trying to get my cards done for Christmas I take every opportunity to get another done..I have coloured her using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..The beautiful papers are from First Editions Guilded Wishes I think its called ,I cannot find the cover at the moment.It has the most sumptuous papers in this collection ,glittered ,foiled and plains .being neutral colours they tend to work with everything...These ones have glittered Snowflakes on them .so rather than mat and layer ,covering them up I decided to design it simply as you can see.the sparkle through the die cuts on your left..I have backed the little figure dies with white card to help them pop out more then gently curled them slightly to give them more depth before adding with 3D glue gel..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Saturday Sketch New DT Card ..Happy Print Club Printables

Hiya for this new DT I have started it is a bit different for me ,First it is using a sketch for the design of the card ,I have never done that ,but it is fun and for my first card the sponsor is Happy Print Club,and they are great for lovely images like this one that I have used today and of course many more for all occasions..
I printed mine several times and decoupaged mine to make it 3D  and popped it onto a pretty lilac slightly oblong card to which I have just added a simple pen outline background to it ,this has kept it very soft and pretty without detracting from the main image.,This was then mounted onto some Purple Centura Pearl..The backing Papers for this card were from Firs Editions Mulberry kissed and these were also mounted onto the same Centura card..The whole card was made from just one sheet of white with a hint of gold Centura pearl,which I folded as you can see in the picture..I dont think the measurements would help as they would be different for every card ,but the box bit at the back I have made at about one and a half inch depth ,this helps the card to stand even with the weight of the topper on it ..But the width and where you pop it is up to you in your own design..Then I added a brace bar across the bottom ,Ideally I would use a small Magnet or even velcro ,that would allow the one end to be detatched and allow the card to fold for posting..If you popped the brace lower you could pop one of those battery lights in and it would look pretty on a Christmas card too ..Thank You for popping by :)xx

613 Avenue Create Challenge Card

Hiya ,today's card has a beautiful image on from A Day with Daisies Digi on it ,I love their stamps ,a little different from every one else's ,but they always look special on a card or project. I have coloured it in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..Then cut out with Tattered Lace bascic notched rectangles,I then drew around some faux stitching and mounted it onto a pretty green backing card cut from the same dies but obviously the next size up...For the main card I have used A beautiful patterned Kanban foiled Christmas sheet of card, This was mounted onto the green card too.For the decoration I wanted to keep it reasonably light so I cut a few snowflakes in various sizes using some dies i purchased from Honkong and clustered these here and there..Instead of putting bling in the middle of the snowflakes I used the Tonic Nuvo in the triangle bottom that gives structure snow or balls with a twinkle ..I have added extra picture in which you can click on and see them more closely,and see the card ,which is a really great quality ..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Saturday Inspiration Morgans Artworld

Hiya ,Today's card for my inspiration is following the theme of Using embossing Wet or Dry..I have used Embossing folders from Crafter's Companion ..sorry I do not know which on as it is not labeled and do not have the packaging. I Coloured the image in using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card ,Then mounted onto craft card then white card..The colours I chose were inspired by the beautiful sunrise we had the other morning..For the embossed card I used Centura Pearl in a deep teal ,it is beautiful embossed as it really gives it depth and definition I think plain card does not give.The rose die is from one of Sara;s English Country Garden and coloured with SN Sparkle pen. And the flourish from Butterfly Lullaby..The tag is a Happy Birthday tag from Docraft's..To finish I added some pretty yellowish beige faux pears..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Digital Delights By Louby Lou New Release

Hiya for todays New release card I have coloured with my usual Polychromos pencils onto Neenah card,this was then mounted onto Red Centura Pearl .I then added some flat loose glitter to the tree for sparkle  and origionally added it to the roof ,but it looked gloopyand wishy washy  and in the end I removed it and used Tonic Nuvo(  in the triangle shaped bottle which is a stand up glitter) ,so this actually stays white and although a bit shiny it sparkles like snow on the roof and on the floor of the kennel.. I put this to one side to dry whilst I went on to do the main card.
Fot this First Editions Vintage Noel was used ,Beautiful rich papers and having the Santa in the one circle was a bonus as it fit in with the theme nicely..I added the topper with 3D glue gel and then the sentiment that came with the kit,I trimmed the outer circle down as I wanted to add some red card around it without it looking too big ,as it had been printed slightly too big..To finish I added two bown with White,silver and red on ,one to each side of the image.. Thank you for popping by :)xx
