Saturated Canary Love Birds

Good afternoon everyone, just a quick one because I am feeling very poorly at the moment, hope you are all well and able to enjoy the sunshine!
For this project I started with my Alla Prima papers by Prima and coloured the fabulous Saturated Canary digi in complimenting colours to these in a combination of Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics. I cut round her with a wide border, then matted her on the lovely Polka dot paper. I inked the edges with a Chalk ink pad-and ever other paper I used on the card. I made a border up the left hand side of the card with paper, and mounted another paper a my background. I embellished the background paper with gems and buttons, then added a little white glittered star in the bottom left hand corner.

I got good news on Tuesday-I was featured as a Star Crafter at LEJ Designs and given this badge for my blog, thank you ladies!

LOTV Dressing up!

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a project showcasing some gorgeous papers I got in a stack free from a magazine, I am pretty sure they are Pink Paislee papers but I shall check later :-) I loved the detail in the papers and wanted to make a simple card to show them off at their best :-)
I used one of my favourite Lili of the Valley images which I coloured in Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I then cut round her with a nestie and framed her on a scalloped oval in complimenting cardstock. I then mounted this on peach papers with butterfly detail in the bottom left hand corner, then used the gorgeous mint coloured paper on my card, and mounted the peach paper in the middle, between the prints. I then embellished with Memory box die cut butterfly border and butterflies out of pink glitter card. Lastly I added a 'Happy Birthday' dome greeting.

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT Project for Sarah Hurley Challenges this time which is a gift box for a friend using Sarah's fabulous steampunk papers and ticket, with one of my flowers made from a recycled drink can as my embellishment-I think they suit the steampunk trend quite well :-) I started with a Kraft gift box which I covered with papers, which I edged with inks to distress. I added the tag on the bottom of the inside of the box, then added my flower as my finishing touch :-)

Clean and Simple 'You are in My Heart and Thoughts' card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I am here with something very different for me-a CAS card using a Penny Black stamp set. I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut around the image then matted it with blue cardstock. I then stamped directly onto the card blank with the greeting from the same set which says 'You are in my heart and thoughts' and placed a little butterfly next to the greeting. Lastly I embellished the card with buttons which I had tied string around the button hole.

Summer Joy Ballerina

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! I hope you have better weather than we do, where's summer got to?!
I am here to show you a card made with a favourite of my Lili of the Valley stamps, isnt she just adorable?! I stamped her in Memento and coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I then around her with a nestie shape. I used papers from a pad I got free with a magazine (will update what they were later because its slipped my mind!) with Echo park paper as my border, which picks up the pink in the roses in the background paper. I used Card Candy that reflected the colours I had coloured the little Ballerina and the bird cage in the background paper too. I then added a Yellow 'Miss you' dome sentiment, and lastly a Papermania Burleigh Blue bow.

Saturated Canary Summer Joy

Good afternoon everyone, here I am with a Saturated Canary card using Krafty Kate, one of my favourite images by Krista :-) I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers to compliment the beautiful papers by Lucy Cromwell. I love the papers so much (especially the glittered designs like Kate is sitting on!) that I didn't want to disguise them with too many embellishments plus I had chosen the papers to reflect the image (the background paper has pennants on like the ones Kate is sitting on in the image) So I only embellished with 3D butterflies, which I added gems to, to show their path across the card. I then added Polka dot ribbon by American Crafts and three pieces of Card Candy to finish my card.

Sassy Pirates and a DT call!

Good evening everyone, hope you are all well and have been enjoying the sunshine as much as possible! :-) I am here to show you a card made with a Sassy Studios image that I won ages ago and hadn't got round to playing with yet-naughty me! I wanted to use my Prima Reflections paper pad, they are some of my favourites but they have quite strong colours so you need the right image to use with them. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers to compliment the deep reds and teal colours in the papers.
All I added as my embellishments were some gorgeous velvety ric rac ribbon, a glittery flower from the Lincoln Linen collection and Card Candy. Lastly I added a 'With Love' dome greeting.

While I am here I just want to remind you to come and join our DT call at Sarah Hurley Challenges, they are a lovely team to be involved with and obviously Sarah's products are a joy to play with! I would love if some of my followers could join in! :-)

Butterflies and Flowers Canvas

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a canvas I made as a present for my friend, who was very pleased which made me happy obviously!
I started with a plain canvas and sponged Distress ink over a Butterfly mask which I moved around the canvas as it wasn't large enough to cover the whole canvas.
I then cut butterflies and flowers out of Tim Holtz distress cardstock (which I had been hoarding and challenged myself to actually use!) with a Spellbinders Butterfly die and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I then cut tiny butterflies out of a pepsi can with a Memory box die. I shaped the flower and then stuck it together, and used a tiny button with a tiny butterfly on the top. I then arranged the Butterflies around the canvas.

LOTV Ballerina in Raspberry Pinks

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a LOTV card, I just love this stamp and its been my favourite since I first started collecting LOTV stamps :-)
I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, including some of the special edition summer pens :-) I then complimented these with Papermania Red Hot Capsule Collection papers, Card Candy and 3D butterflies. I also added gems to show her movement on my nestie cut circle.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Hybrid Chic: Use Pink
Charisma Cardz: Bling
Lili's Little Fairies: Anything Goes
Pixie Dust Studio: Summer
Paper Pretties: Summer
Truly Scrumptious: Pretty in Pinks
Top Tip Tuesday: Something Old
Ooh La La Challenge: Make it Girly

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments!
