Monochrome Christmas Bears

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge today over at Monochrome Magic 


The theme for this month is Anything Goes Monochrome or Monochrome with a Twist of Christmas.  I do hope you can come on over and play along with me this month.

 Here is my DT inspiration card.  I adore this image called Igloo Bears from Pink Gem Designs and I coloured it up using Copics, Diamond Sparkles Glitter and a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen.  The sentiment is hand stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and is from Stampingallday.  I went for CAS Style but this has so much sparkle I didn't need anything else!

Cutest Christmas Penguin

Hi Everyone

I am here today to share with you one of the latest releases at Digi Doodle Studios 

I am not usually a fan of colouring penguins but I seem to have developed a fetish for colouring the DDS ones!

This cute digi is called Icey's Triple Dipper and I coloured him with Copics.  He was coloured using techniques from Kit and Clowder Online Colouring Classes 

You really need to visit the STORE and check out the new Christmas releases and all the other fabulously cute digis that are available.


I decided to print the image off quite large and make a CAS card.  I used Diamond Sparkles Glitter on the furry hat bits and also on the Ice Cream or Snow Cone as I think it might be called in winter!  The sentiment I hand stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Ink Pad and it is from Stampingallday.



There are more cute penguins available in the  STORE and in a couple of weeks you might just find another one appearing on my blog, so keep a look out for that lol.

I chose to work with an image from A Day For Daisies called  Little Cats Christmas

Lovers Swing 40th Anniversary

Hi Everyone

I was asked by a friend to make a 40th Anniversary card for her parents.  She had a poem all picked out to go inside and chose this gorgeous image from Digi Doodle Studios called Lover's Swing for me to colour up which I did with Copics.  I then used a Go Kreate die to cut it out and layer it.

The Card is a 7" Square and the patterned paper is from WRS.  I typed the sentiment on the laptop before printing the image.  The heart die is an unnamed die and I finished with Clear Red Heart Gems.

Lollipop with a Tutorial!

Hi Everyone

It is the start of the new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge 


 The theme for this month is Stitching Real OR Faux (Not one of my favourite themes but we have a Stitcher on the DT and she chose this one lol!) She does some fabulous X Stitch if you would like to visit her blog HERE and leave her some comments she would love it. 

The iamge I used for my project is called Baby Words from Paper Nest Dolls

I have made one of my favourite types of cards for my DT project this time which is a Lollipop Card.  I have been asked several times how I make these so I am going to attempt to do step by step instructions for this post.  If I have missed anything out or you need to know anything else about how I made this then please feel free to email me at ljanners@hotmail.com or leave me a question in the comments and I will get back to you. I have never done a tutorial before so bear with me lol!

Step 1. I Cut out the image out using a Go Kreate circle die and then two larger circles one for layering and one for the reverse


                                                                                                                                                                                            






Step 2. I glued the frill onto both the front and back





 
 


 Step 3. I used red tape (double sided sticky tape) to attach the straw to one side.  I put some more on the top side ready to attach the back.  I also glued around the frill on both sides so that when they are sandwiched together they are secured with two layers of glue









Step 4. I pressed the back onto the front sandwiching the straw between both












Step 5.  I glued on the image.  If you have a message or info to go onto the back like baby's weight etc then print this info and cut out in a circle the same size as the image and glue on now






 

Step 6. I Added embellishments , bows, Roses etc




Step 7. My Lollipop is now finished!



I hope that you found this helpful in creating your own Lollipop Cards.  I love seeing the different ones around Blogland.

Batty About You!

Hi Everyone

It Tuesday and my last post this month for Digi Doodle Studios 



For my inspirational project this time I have used Going Batty and coloured it up using Copics.  Am in CAS mode at the moment lol.  I go through these phases every now and then where I see lots of lovey CAS cards and it gets me in that kind of mood. It happens to me with colours too.  I see lots of nice cards made using a certain colour then I go into that colour mode. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me??

As my Card is CAS there isn't much to say about it really.  It's a 5 x 7 " Card and I typed the sentiment when I Printed the image.  I layered the Image and a White layer onto Black Card and also mounted the sentiment onto this too.

Ballerina - The Movie

Hi Everyone

As my regular followers will know I like to enter the Alicia Bel Facebook Challenge 

Once again Alicia has decided to do this in teams of four people and the theme for this time is Movies.

I have teamed up with the same talented crafters as last time Susan Bennett, Bonnie Kohane and Margaret Ashby.  All of these are well known around blogland. Bonnie is the computer whiz in the team and she made us the Emotion Watermark to go with our team name!

Our team name remains the same "The Eyes Have It"

I chose to work with this image called Dancer Daisy and I have coloured her with Copics.

The film I based my card on is Ballerina.  If you haven't seen it, it is well worth a watch.  The movie is about an orphan girl who dreams of being a famous Ballerina.  She runs away from her orphanage with her friend to Paris to try and fulfill her dream.  I wont spoil it by telling you if she makes it or not but she has quite an adventure!

My Card is a 7" Scalloped Square and I have used Patterned Papers from the Paris Paper Pack by Dovecraft.  I hand stamped the Birthday Sentiment which is from Stampingallday, added Paper Roses, Square Pearl String, a Satin Ribbon Bow, Pearl Flower Gems and finished with Pink Pearl Gems!
