Fishies for Hubby

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of this months challenge over at Crafty Animals 

The theme as always is Anything Goes as long as you include an animal.  I love this challenge blog as it gets well over 100 entries each month and the projects are all amazing.  It is getting harder and harder to pick a winner and the Top spots.

30th June was my Wedding Anniversary (13 years) and since lockdown my husband has been playing a game on his phone (with our kids too) to do with fishing.  I find it totally boring but they seem to love it.  So I went with a fish themed card for his Anniversary card.

The fishy images are from the Seally For You Pairables Set from Digi Doodle Studios and I have coloured them using Copics.  The waves are a Craft Emotion Stencil and I have used Tim Holtz Distress Inks with them.

Crop It!!

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of this months challenge over at Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog 

 
The theme for this month is Three of a Kind.  I hope that you can come on over and play along with us this month

For my DT card I have to credit a fellow crafter as I absolutely loved her design that she used for challenge she entered a few years ago.  I asked her permission to CASe it.  Thank you Susan Sudbury for the inspiration and letting me use your design.  You can see Susan's original by clicking HERE to visit her blog post.  

This "technique" is called Crop It and it's where you take part of an image.  Crop it and then use it as the focal point.

The Image I used for this is from Hannah Lynn Art and is called Tea Rose Fairy  I coloured her with Copics and then used the Eyes as my Crop It part.  I cut the white layers using a wavy stitched border die and placed them over the image.  I then mounted the whole lot onto black shimmer card.  I used the three roses from the image to pop on the front too.

There are lots of ways to do the Crop It theme but this one was a firm favourite of mine.

Snowmen Tall Card

Hi Everyone

Today I am sharing with you a tall card I have made using Winter Snowmen Pairables Set from Digi Doodle Studios 

I have also used some of the trees from the Holiday Mice Pairables Set These sets are great because you can mix and match them to create your scenes


All the Images are coloured using Copics and I have added Diamond Sparkles Glitter to some of them too.
 
I used a red polka dot card layered onto dark red card for my base layers and then used Wavy Border Dies to create the snowy mounds.  I fussy cut the images and then arranged them in their little scenes.

Sophia Sings

Hi Everyone

The new release showcase is complete and the new image are all now available in the Digi Doodle Studios Store  

Dina artist at DDS threw in an extra one and so here she is.  This so reminded me of the scene in Shrek when Princess Fiona is singing to the bird and the bird explodes.  This one obviously will have a happier ending lol! 

She is called Sophia Sings and I have coloured her using Copics and a white gelly roll pen.  I created the background with Memento Inks and a cloud die and the grassy bits are done with Copics

I kept this card fairly embellishment free as I really wanted this image to be the focal point. I cut the image out using an MFT stitched in and out die.

Otterly Favourite Teacher

Hi Everyone

I am here to share with you a little inspirations for Digi Doodle Studios 



My youngest son (8 years old) asked me to make something for his teacher that he could give her so I made her a Lollipop Card using elements from the Otterly Love Pairables

I coloured the images using Copics and then used GoKreate Circle dies to cut and layer.  The sentiment comes in the digi set and I punched it using a circle punch and layered it onto a scalloped circle which I cut using a spellbinders die.  I edged it with a string pearl drop border, added satin blue bows and blue heart gems.  Its all put together with the straw inside and my son wrote a message on another circle which I added to the back.
