Snuggle time...



Hey folks...a quickie from me tonight!!

Had to have a wee break from those wedding invites, and had a request from one of the girls at work to make a baby girl card.  I thought this gorgeous stamp from LOTV was just perfect.  The stamp is Snuggle Time from LOTV which I coloured with copics and then shaded with polychromos.  The papers are from Echo Park - Bundle of Joy Girl collection which I layered onto bazzill card.  I doodled around each of the layers and also distressed them. I also added a piece of white lace to one of the layers, not that you can see much of it...lol!!  Now those dies....those are from the die-namics blueprints set 14.....and I love them....the button if fastened with a piece of twine tied in a wee bow.

Beauty in Bloom...






Good morning Sugar fans....happy hump day...yay the middle of the week!!


So this weeks card I wanted to use this super cute stamp called Day Dreamer Leanne Ellis range at Sugar Nellie. I stamped her using memento ink and coloured with copics, building up colour and then shaded with polychromos....I like using my pencils for the finishing touches as I can get a bit finer detail with them as sometimes the pens can bleed too much.




I found this paper pad at the SECC which also had lots of little embellishments to match, so of course needed to buy the lot, it's Curiosity Corner from Dovecraft.

This particular paper had a frame already printed on it so I thought it would be a good idea to make it look like a house from.  So I made the canopy roof type thing with my scallop border and just punched out a few strips....what do you think??

The paper was layered onto bazzill card and then I distressed around the edges.

For my card I have used that gorgeous stamp from LOTV, which is adorable, I coloured it with copics and the shaded with polychromos.

Some exciting news...




Good morning Sugar fans....it's Wednesday I hear you say and this isn't The Sugar Bowl I hear you say....well that's right, the lovely Karen asked me if I would like to take a 3 month spot over on The Sugar Nellie blog...woo hoo!!  Well I obviously had to think about it for all of 2 seconds...lol!!



So for my first card I wanted to go plain and simple and to try to just focus on my colouring and Butterfly Girl is one of my favourite stamps.  She comes from the Simply Sassy range of Sugar Nellie over at Funky Kits.  I stamped her using memento ink and coloured with copics, building up colour and then shaded with polychromos....I like using my pencils for the finishing touches as I can get a bit finer detail with them as sometimes the pens can bleed too much.





Now I found that embossing folder at the SECC which I had to have as I immediately thought of this stamp...so the make is Craft Concepts....and it is just beautiful...I love embossing with white card, I think it looks so crisp and clean.

Again, I found those teeny weeny butterflies at the SECC, they come in the one die from Memory Box and are just so perfect not just with this stamp but lots of other stamps too...I just added a bit of colour to them, popped their wings up and stuck them down.

The embossed panel, image and sentiment are layered onto kraft card and I doodled around the edges...I think that helps to pop an image.

The message is from Stampin Up and I finished with some pearls in the corner....hope you likey.

Papertake Weekly - anything goes

Baby bunny...




Morning folks, it's another dreich day!!

So I made this card the other day with a new stamp I bought at the SECC.  I wanted to keep it simple as I wanted to be able to see the embossed clouds in the background as I thought they worked well with the stamp.  I coloured the image with copics and did lots of shading with polychromos.  I die cut the image with a die-namics pierced circle and layered it onto a scalloped circle....which I cut myself.  I re cut the clouds to layer over the edges of the cirle and then glittered them up!!  I added a piece of twine with a little dummy attached.  The sentiment is from one of the LOTV art pads, I just punched it to be smaller...I didnt want the sentiment taking over the image....hope you likey!!

supplies:
stamp - Bunny Moon LOTV
sentiment - LOTV
pens - copics
pencils - polychromos

Time for something a wee bit different...




Well it's very wet and horrible this morning so I guess it's time for another card.  I bought this stamp set towards the end of last year and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful sets I own!!  So I thought I would check out the MFT blog to see if I could enter their sketch challenge using this set.

It's very plain and simple but I think with just the wee bit colour, it makes those poppies stand out.  I cut out a circle using the pierced circle die from die-namics and then using distress inks I inked up in blue and green...makes it look like grass and sky. I stamped sections of the poppies and die cut the poppy heads and leaves.  The text and sentiment is also from the same set....oh and I added my favourite doodling around the edges...hope you likey.

supplies:
stamps - MFT Pretty Poppies
dies - MFT Poppies and Leaves

A Little Hug...





Hello everyone...hope you are all enjoying your weekend!!  I have been a bit manic with work recently however this is the first weekend in a wee while that I haven't had to work so priorities right and a card was in the making!!

The lovely Abi sent me these papers and they are beautiful, gorgeous colours and right up my street...thank you my love!! So I hope you like what I have made with them...

My favourite 5..ish creations of 2013...


As if it wasn't hard enough choosing 5 Christmas cards, I now have to choose 5 others....well not sure if I can stick to 5!!

Pop over to Debby's blog to find out all the details on what to do to enter her challenge...




 This has to be one of my favourites...love the stamp, papers and the die...



This was a special card I made for a new baby which turned out well considering I don't make many baby cards.

I love this sketch and I do use it lots but I love these colours....



These Lili of the Valley stamps are just perfect for a quick card....so effective too...



I just love these little fairies and this card took me ages but another one I am pleased with...


This was something different which involved no colouring, just sponging with distress inks...



I was so chuffed with this card as I don't really do digis, not that I don't like them...printer isn't the best, but I think it turned out well...


I hope you like my selection of my favourites from 2013!!

Happy New Year everybody!!
