Casual Girl!


Today I'd like to share a card I have made for a fun loving, clothes loving young lady turning 18!

I have made the card using a Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art. I cut a layer of floral written paper which I've had in my stash for over 10 years and thought I'd never use it lol. Then on to a white card I stamped one of the images from the All Dressed Up stamp set called "what's your style?". Along with the text next to her.

Using my Promarker pens I coloured her in. I cut 2 of her head and her handbag so I could pop them up using foam pads. The bag I added Glossy Accents to. I used the same template to cut it out and then I edged her using tiny stamps from the Polkadoodles Honey-daisy-clear-stamp-set  I stamped a flourish in green and added flowers, leaves, stamens and a denim blue hat pin to the left.
A diecut heart and the figures 18 were added and tucked behind the main piece. The Happy Birthday is by Verve Stamps and cut out using my faithful fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set  The stand is a die by Tonic.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you can share a few words.

Here is what I came up with

Peek a Boo in fantasy land.

Hello again!

Today I'm sharing a tag I have made for this weeks Digichoosday #36Challenge . We were asked to think of fantasy and this is what I came up with.

For this I diecut a tag shape from a Bling bronze cardstock. I covered it with the greyish paper from Winnie-winterland-digital-craft-papers I did sponge a leaf design on to it and inked the edges first. Then I took several images from the cute Autumn/fall-colour digi-stamps download bundle which I stretched a bit before I was happy to print them. This is the beauty of digital images you can size them for your own crafty projects. Also all the images in this collection are coloured in.

I then printed out and coloured in with my markers helga-hippo-peek-a-boo-download isn't she adorable? I decided where she was going to stand and began to add the leaves, ferns and toadstools using both wet glue and foam pads for dimension.
Before I finished I added perfect pearls in pale green and charcoal and then I went around some images with a black pen. A little sheer ribbon in burgundy and olive green finished it all off.

I do hope you can join in with us this week as I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs.

I would like to join in the following challenges myself

The Icey Christmas Flower


Today I'd like to share with you all the card I have made for the new ATG challenge starting today over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.  This time around we have the wonderful Fredshesaid as our exclusive sponsor. They have so many different images to choose from both pre-coloured or not.

For my card I chose a pre-coloured image that is called Icey Christmas Flower on the sheet (which is only £1) you get enough to make 2 beautiful cards.

I decided to make an 5x5 easel card from bright white cardstock. I fancy cut the edge of the base with my Spellbinder die to mirror the petals. I covered the base and easel with paper from a Christmas paper stack. Next I cut from pale mint green glitter paper a stitched circle, the stopper bar and some poinsettia flowers. I also cut from white card the bar and larger poinsettia flowers. The bar I did a final mat on to navy blue to match the blue in the flower and on the paper.
Taking the image sheet, I hand cut the base scallop and wet glued it down then I cut the next layer using my stitched die and using foam pads I added it. Then you get 2 layers of the flower 1 with the leaves and the other just the flower. All were added using foam pads. I pinched the top petals and slightly offset it.
I added glitter glue and perfect pearls in pale blue, along with the pale green dazzler to the main image. Then to the stopper bar I added a Merry Christmas peel off to a mat of white and navy. I made up 3 flowers and added pale blue gems to each before hot gluing them to the front of the bar. 

I'm sitting here in the evening typing this up with the card next to me and its twinkling away like mad, I think it will look pleasant on someones sideboard this Christmas. I love all the decorations and Christmas flowers that are in people's homes

I do hope you can join in the fun as the prize will be $10 gift card to spend in the store.  Please also remember the rule change of only 3 entrees per challenge now.

I'm entering in a few challenges

Thanks for calling in and remember to leave a word or two.

Peach is Best.


Today I'd like to share with you all another card I have made. This one uses papers purchased from Merly Impressions where I go to join in and crop. These papers are from the beautiful ooh-la-la-collection . Again we are using a 6x6 bright white card base.
I have added a distressed edged peach card first then to that I have added oui-oui using the darker side stitching around the edge with white thread. Then turning over the oui-oui  paper I have cut out 9 x 1 3/4 squares distressing all edges before adding to the card.
Then I took some natural floss! and added that to the front. I cut a narrow circle and added all my flowers and foliage to it and placed that down using glue gel for lift. The disc is cut from left overs of the papers and to that I added the 80. I dotted about peach pearls and we were finished.

This card was made for a lady who is in the WI and adores flowers. I have been told she loved it.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Perfect Day!

Today I'd like to share with you all a card I made last week. The card is my favorite size at the moment 6x6 in bright white. I have used a selection of papers I have had in my stash for quite sometime. They were purchased at Merly Impressions   and they are from the secret-garden-collection which I'm afraid is almost all sold out (I did say I'd had it a while lol).
 I have placed down the blue xx paper, then taken one of the ready to use card front pieces they sometimes do on to a pink cardstock and removed the centre, this was added using foam pads. Then taking another paper in the rich red I cut a slightly smaller circle and added it in to the middle flat. Then I cut a scalloped circle and stitched around the edge and stamped in to it the Verve sentiment and added that on foam pads. I fussy cut a few flowers to add to the space and cut out the Perfect also by Verve in the blue bling card adding that with glue gel.
I took a few flowers from my stash along with some Verve Sprightly Sprigs and some glitter glue and we were done. Just popping my printed out 70 Today on a flag banner under the pink bloom.

Thanks for stopping by today.
