Gorgeous Nancy

Hi Everyone

I was so emotional when Dina (artist and owner) of Digi Doodle Studios designed this digi for me in memory of my best friend Traci Law who passed away earlier this year (Some of you may remember her from around blogland)

She was a huge animal lover and had several Chinese Crested dogs along with many other pets.  She would have absolutely loved this digi as do I

She is called Uniquely Nancy after one of Traci's dogs.  I cannot thank Dina enough for drawing her

I coloured her using Copics and made her the focal point on this Gift Bag

 I cut and layered her using a Spellbinders Grand Oval die and added paper flowers and a lace border.  The patterned paper is from LOTV.  I finihsed by adding pearl gems to the centres of the flowers

Pink Christmas Star

Hi Everyone

Lili Of The Valley Facebook Group are hosting a Christmas Card swap.  There was an odd number entered so I was lucky enough to be able to have two partners and send two cards.

This is the first one that I have made and the image is called Christmas Star and I have coloured the image using Copics and Diamond Sparkles Glitter

The card is a 7" square card and the patterned paper is from Wild Rose Studio.  I don't often add paper flowers to Christmas cards but I wanted to do something different and use the berries that have been sat in my drawer for a long time.  I added some pink lace and a polka dot bow. The sentiment is hand stamped and is from Stampingallday.  To finish I added some pink pearl gems.

Penguin Wedding

Hi Everyone

I was asked by a friend to make her Daughter a wedding card.  The bride is mad about penguins and the theme for the wedding was silver, ice blue and snowflakes. 

I headed to Whimsy Stamps as I knew that there had to be a penguin couple there.  If I need a penguin I always head here lol! 

 This cute couple is called Penguin Bride and Groom and I have coloured them using Copics.  I was asked to give the Bride a white bouquet and the Groom a Teal Bowtie and I also coloured the ribbons on the flowers in Teal to match the colour scheme.  I must admit I did a little "Happy Dance" when at the bottom of one of my many drawers of card and paper I found some Foil Embossed Ice Blue Card with Silver Snowflakes from Hunkydory!  I also cut some in Teal Glitter card using a Robert Addams Snowflake Die.  I personalised the card with the Name and date and added a sparkly silver bow.  I finished by popping on some light blue gems to the centers of the snowflakes.

What can you see Little Bear?

Hi Everyone

Here I am sharing another inspiration for the Pink Gem Etsy Shop 



I have made a bridge card so that this cute bear called Waiting Polar Bear
could watch Santa fly over from his snow mound!

I followed a tutorial for the card which you can find HERE 

If you want to make a slightly bigger size I made some changes and you can find the bigger size HERE 

I coloured the bear with Copics and used a Robert Addams Die to cut the Flying Santa and Reindeer.  I decorated the card blank with Ice Blue plain card and a snowflake embossed card and created the snowmound using a Wavy Border die and White Hammer Card.  I popped on a Merry Christmas Peel Off and finished by adding some White Pearl Gems to the snowflake centres.
