Floral Fun

Hi hope you are all well and having a good week. I have been cleaning my oven this morning so apologies for my delay in posting this DT post.
I have created this card for our latest challenge at Delicious Doodles "Anything Floral". We all love flowers so get something floral and join in the fun with us. As usual there are 5 Delicious Doodles images up for grabs as a prize xxx
I used the new floral image called Love in a mist and Butterfly border. I copied and pasted the Love in a mist image to create a bouquet. I used a spellbinders die to create a pot to plant my bouquet into. I then used the border to frame this. I decoupaged the border for extra dimension. I used alcohol pens to colour. i used centura pearl as my base card.

Challenges I am entering are:
Digistamps for Joy - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp -Anything Goes

Birds of a Feather

Hi another great day out with my gorgeous family making the most of the summer holiday. We  went to the new Queen Elizabeth Park that is next to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford. It is a short tube ride away from us. We had a great day.
I am posting my DT card for the Delicious Doodles Challenge. This week we would like to see " Birds of  a Feather". I chose to use the beautiful Peacock image from the store. I love electric blue and black together so this inspired my card. I coloured the image with alcohol pens and decoupaged it up.
I used the chevron embossing folder from Crafters companion to make the panels that I put the image onto. I added some card candy to embellish the project.

Challenges I am entering are:

Sweet Peas Stamps

Hi I have been having a play with some inking techniques today using Sweet Pea Stamps Digi image Fading Love by Ching Chou Kuik. I printed the image onto centura pearl card stock and coloured the image with promarkers and a metallic promarker. I then created a mask by printing the image onto copier paper. 
I created a moon from the copier paper and tore some paper to create my landscape (this needs practise). I stamped on some birds from indigo blu and some wild flowers from clarity stamps. The sentiment is just rite stamps.

Challenges entered are:

Sweet Pea Stampers - Tear it To pieces (my copier paper for my scene)

Christmas card

Hi been an exhausting day we went to London Zoo. Wow it is so amazing. Such a wonderful place to show the children all the different species of animals from around the world. We love the giraffes most.
Today at Delicious Doodles we would love,to see your Christmas cards. Never to early to start making Christmas cards. I went for a CAS look with mine. I embossed some white card and coloured the raised embossing with my pro markers in traditional Christmas red, green and gold. I then used my Gothic arch window die from Spellbinders to make a window for my Christmas Candles to sit on. I decoupaged these.

Simply Butterflies

Hello hope you are all well and enjoying August. I am just popping in with a card I have made for the challenge at Delicious Doodles.
This week our theme is butterflies. I designed this card using my Craft Artist 2 software. I placed three of Teri's New Butterfly image in different sizes onto the workspace. I then chose one of the materials from my design kits. I punched out the butterfly shape using the fab punch tool. I placed this behind the butterflies in the relevant size. I then faded the transparency so you could see the design through the image.
I added a touch of alcohol pen to give some interest. I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the image that I printed onto centura pearl cardstock.

Challenges I am entering are:
Whimsy Inspirational Challenge - Clean and Simple

I printed out the topper onto centura Pearl card also from Crafters Companion. I printed a backing paper from the CD and made one of the floral embellishments. to accent the design I used some leaves I die cut from black card stock. I also embossed some black card using a swirly cuttlebug design. I then added a sentiment from the stash.

Challenges  I am entering are:

Hit is the Summer Holidays so plenty of Crafting time. I am trying to build up a stash as I donated about 500 cards to friends to raise funds for Macmillan cancer , Christians Against Poverty and premature babies so my personal stock is very low.
I brought this I image from Crafts and Me a Digi stamp designed by my friend Teri who runs Delicious Doodles. I liked the fact it was Dad with child rather than Mum.  A simple card really I printed image to fit a 5:5 by 5:5 square card. I then coloured with alcohol pens creating a rather retro wallpaper with pens. I stamped the sentiment by just rite stamps (love this company). I matt and layered onto a 6 by 6 square card.
