Beary Happy Wishes

Hi Everyone

Nearly the end of April. Hoping that we won't have to spend the whole of May in Lockdown but what will be will be!

I am here today to share a card with you that I have made using Beary Wishes Pairables Set  (and the bee is from Sweet Honey Bears Pairables Set) which you can find in the Digi Doodle Studios Store

I coloured the images using Copics

I used a cloud die and a Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad to create the sky background and a wavy border die to create the grassy hills.  The sentiment comes in the Digi Stamps Set

CAS Love You Panda

Hi Everyone

I am seriously in CAS mode at the moment and am struggling to create anything other than CAS cards.  Does anyone else get in a mode that they cannot get out of for a while? 

I hope that you are all safe and well and coping with the restrictions at this moment.

I recently joined the AAA Cards CAS Challenge Facebook Group and this weekend they have been running an event to make Tall and Skinny or Long and Skinny CAS Cards.  I just had to play along of course in my present state lol!

I used this gorgeous Panda Bear from the Panda Love Pairables Set  which you can find at Digi Doodle Studios Store  

This is a DL size card. Never made one this size before but it is really good for CAS and leaving alot of white space.  I coloured the image using Copics and punches the hearts.  The sentiment is also in the set with the image.

Pink Skies Christmas Set

Hi Everyone

I hope that you are all safe and well and coping with these restrictions.  Thank goodness for colouring and crafting to keep us sane!

I would like to share with you a set of two Christmas cards that I have made using images from Digi Doodle Studios  I was actually making a tall card and was going to do this scene all on one card but when I had the images coloured and the scene laid out I thought I would Chop it in half and make two cards. 

The Bears are called Beary Fun Sleigh Ride, the Penguin and his Skis are from the Wintertime Penguins Pairable Set and the Trees are from Holiday Mice Pairables Set

 You really can make fabulous scenes when you combine the sets and digis and I had great fun making these

I coloured all the images using Copics and added Diamond Sparkles Glitter

I created the pink Sky using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a water spray.  I used a Wavy Border Die to create the snow hills.  The sentiment I hand stamped and is from Stampingallday

GD with Dandelion Wishes

Hi Everyone

I am so excited to be back at Conie Fong Group  for another stint as a Guest Designer. 

Thank you to both Gloria and Conie for having me.

For my first GD card this month I have used Dandelion Wishes and created my first ever Dutch Fold Card.  I really enjoyed making this fold and will definitely be doing another one.

I followed a tutorial and you can find it HERE

I used a dark green and a green spotty paper to decorate the card base.  The sentiment comes with the image and I added this at the bottom of the card.  To the two side pieces I popped on paper flowers
