For Big Brother

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge today over at Creative Craft Cottage 
 


The theme for the next fortnight is For the Men/Boys.

We have two great sponsors for this challenge one of which is Crafty Sentiments Designs and I chose to work with this cute image called Herbie the Bear which I coloured using Copics.  


For my DT project I made a card for my Children's Big Brother.

The card blank is a 7" Square and the patterned paper is from Trimcraft,  I double layered it and I was so pleased that in the smaller layer the candy cane patterned lined up perfectly lol!  The image and layer is cut from a Go Kreate Die and the candy cane is a Sizzix Die.  The Happy Christmas words are cut using a Robert Addams Die and the Brother is a Cheery Lynn Die.  Lots of different dies on this one!!  I finished the card by adding Red Pearl Gems.




 Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this card with me.  Hope you can come on over and play along in the challenge with us.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Wine O'Clock!

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made for my Friends birthday later in the year.  As soon as I saw this image which was recently released at Faery Ink I just new that this would have to go on her card lol.  The image is called Time for Wine Layla and I have coloured her with Copics.

I decided to make an easel card as I haven't made on of them for a while.  The patterned paper is from Trimcraft and I die cut some Wine glasses one in red and two in a white Glitter card using a Joy Die.  I added a Green Polka Dot Ribbon and hand tied the bow.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  I finished by adding some Green Pearl Flower Gems.

KRAFT and Blues

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of a new challenge over at A Gem of A Challenge 


The theme for the next fortnight is Use KRAFT.  Please come on over and play along with us.

For my DT card I used the gorgeous Chloe on Swing digi image which I have coloured using Copics.  You can find all the wonderful images, Toppers etc in the Store   

This is new for me as I have never used Kraft Card Before and to be honest was always dubious about using it.  I originally printed the image straight onto the KRAFT card but I struggled to get the copics to show up anywhere near their proper colours so I abandoned that idea and have used it for layering instead!  I used a Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad to distress around the image.  The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  I finished by adding a Blue Satin Bow to the Top Left Corner.

Guest Designer for Paradise of Stamps

Hi Everyone

I was so thrilled to see that I won a challenge recently at Paradise of Stamps.  When you win the challenge you are invited to be Guest Designer for a future challenge so here I am lol!

The theme for this month is Your Favourite Thing.

I made a card using School Girl Emma digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs.  Emma is one of my favourite characters at Pink Gem.  I usually colour her up for pregnancy cards but she looks just as fab as a school girl.  I coloured her using Copics and fussy cut her.

The Card is a 6" Square and I have layered shades of White with Blue Bazzill.  The Blackboard is a wooden die that I have owned for several years but only gets an airing if I have a School Theme to make lol!  The sentiment I typed on the laptop before I printed the image.  I used white peel offs for the ABC and finished with  Blue Pearl Gems.
