Vintage Lady

Hello All,

Yes I know its been a while, but its about time I add some organisation in my crafting life too. I have spent today going through all the challenge blogs and noting down details of frequency, rules e.c.t .. My plan is to create a spreadsheet that will go in my crafting organiser ( I know check me out ) The plan is by being more organised I will have time set aside for not just crafting, but sharing it too :-). If all goes to plan I should be a more frequent visitor of blogland!!

I seem to spend more time colouring nowadays that I do cardmaking, I have also just started a class to learn to draw and paint portraits so I am excited to see how that goes.

This image is one I coloured this time last year ( yes time flies!! ) The image is from " A Day for Daisies " I finally got her turned into a card. Now I really am useless at taking note of all the products I have used ( hence my new organiser :-) ) I have used papers from pima and teamed it with some hearfelt creation dies, and given it a good sprinkling of frontage.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart  - Anything Goes
Digi Chooseday - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean - Anything Goes
Wed Creative Inspiration - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Anything Goes

Fairy Dust in the Sugar Bowl

Hi All,

Its time for another new Sugar Bowl challenge, I have gone for something a little different. This is a jar of fairy dust, its so simple to do and looks so pretty. Its just a jar of water and you add in a little glitter and cut open some glow sticks and put the contents into the jar ( in the UK you can buy the glow sticks at the pound shop. )

I decorated the top of the jar with some flowers and gems, and a little shrink using the scrapberry image  " little sister " that you can find here

Hope you will join us in the sugar bowl this month, I always enjoy seeing your fabulous creations.

Kit and Clowder Mixed Media Class

Hello All,

Yes I hang my head in shame, it has been sooooo long since I have posted anything!!! I will not give a big long list of whys and wherefores however its safe to say I have been rather busy with lots of things. I have done the odd bit of crafting here and there ... I have kicked started myself with the Kit and Clowder mixed media class ... Have so enjoyed this, it feels like so long since I have picked up my pens, & even longer since I picked up a lot of my mixed media supplies, infact the last pages in my art journal are dated 2012.

I will be doing my best to pop round all your blogs and say hi, and see what you have been up to & hopefully I will be around a bit more often!

Crafty Hugs to all

Sugar Bowl - April


 


 
Hi All,

Firstly I apologise for the picture heavy post, it was kind of hard to work out the best way to photograph this to show the complete project.

Well ... its time for another challenge over at the sugar bowl and as always we have the theme of anything goes. I have used the fabulous Leanne Ellis image, the Leanne Ellis range can be found here I have coloured her up with copic's ( this one was coloured a while ago, so pre me making a note of copic's used ) and I added a water colour background. I then teamed it up with one of the teacup cards from " The house of Zandra, fabulous tea & cakes cd " I added the clock, little mushrooms and tiny little bottle to really try and add to that wonderland theme. I hope you like.

I would so love to see you in the sugar bowl, I love being inspired by you all, and as always there are some fabulous sugary prizes on offer :-)

Sir Benjamin

Hi All, this is a card I made for my BIL&SIL's wedding anniversary ... My SIL has subjected her hubby to far too many 18th Century drama's as he now likes to be referred to as Sir Benjamin, LOL. So I thought this image from the polkadoodles rose bud collection was just perfect. My SIL was married in a pale blue dress hence the colour choice, and they are going to Paris later this year, which was why I have added the French details.

I have been a little remiss in taking note of the copics I used, and in noting down the ingredients to the card.

The Paris stamp in Stampendous and I have embossed with white embossing powder onto some Bo Bunny Papers and added distress ink tumbled Glass. I have also used a little Kanban stamp to embellish round the edges. I have used a Tim Holtz, HOTP & Marianne Creatables dies for all the embellishments. I added a few paper flowers some little vellum flowers cut with and x cut punch and some bling.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Createalicious - Anything Goes
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
Just Inspirational - Flourish and Bling
Crafting All Seasons - Pastel Colours
As you like it - Fav type of stamp rubber or digi ( digi as I can re-size, )

Anniversary Season

Hi All,

Its Anniversary season in our family, I am not quite sure what it is about March but we all chose that month to get married in ... Including myself, LOL!! ... so I am on a mission to get all the cards made on time.

This one is so far out of my comfort zone!!! ..... I normally cant cope with ribbons at all, I love them on everyone else's cards but for some reason I cant get them to work for me .... these ones I have beat into submission with a stapler, think this may be my new secret weapon!! The reason I have pushed myself out my comfort zone is this card is for my Auntie and she loves ribbon and fuss!!

I have used 2 images from Saturated Canary, and have colored it all up with my W9 copic markers, and then added a watercolour background. I have stitched the edges with gold thread and used some frantage. The papers are DCWV- Blackcurrant stack. I have die cut flowers using a heartfelt creation stamp & co-coordinating die set. Then I have rummaged in my neglected ribbon and flower box to get embellies to co-ordinate.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers - Ribbons and Pearls
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
PTW - Anything Goes
Clear it out - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thurs - Dies and Punches

I have stamped around the image with some snowflake stamps from WRMK and embossed with WOW snowflake sparkle embossing powder, then I have colour tinted the paper with distress ink, Tumbled glass. I have then stitched round the edge with some sparkly thread.

I have teamed it up with papers Bo Bunny/Country Garden.

Anniversary Fix

Hi All,

Sorry I have not been around blogland much, things have been sooooo busy, hopefully I will get chance to catch up with all your lovely creations.

This is a card that I made for some friends, I have merged 2 images from Redonkdoodles for this one. The card turned out to be a labor of love. I have coloured it so that it looks just like the couple in question. I have been colouring with copics since 2010 and I have never had a big blob of ink fall onto my colouring ..... after 2 evenings of colouring guess what!! ... after wanting to burst into tears I went on to try and fix, so I tried to remove with colourless blender and then darkened the shirt to cover the orange staining that left ..... as a result of all the panic I failed to keep a note of the copics used.

I decided to keep the card simple and I rummaged through my scrap papers, to put the card together.

blowing kisses

Hi All,

I had so much fun colouring up this one, it was done a couple of months ago, I was so excited to learn how to colour curly hair ... That I was suddenly pulling out all my images, that I bought and loved, but was a little daunted by as I was not sure how to tackle curly hair, thats part of the reason I love Alyce's classes so much they have really helped to give confidence.

          E17, R05, R02, R00
Hearts - C5, R29, R27, R22
Boots - W9, W7, W5,W3, W1

I decided to keep the card fairly simple. I have used some paper from My minds eye - Kate&Co and Bo Bunny - Hello Sunshine.

I have used a couple of dies from x-cut to add some embeishments.

Underwater Playground

Hi All,

Well I had so much fun making this one, I forgot to take note of all the products used ... whoops!!
The image is from the fabulous Jade Dragonne, http://jadedragonne.deviantart.com/ I coloured this one up a few months ago using copics, and a few prisma's just to help create the background.

I made the larger shells and star fish using martha stewart paper clay and some shell molds I bought forever ago to make a pearl wedding anniversary cake. ... i found some tiny shells off an old necklace, I created the seaweed using a spellbinders die and blue tissue paper, which I then added a little distress ink to to make it variegated. I then added some glitter flakes around the shells, again to add to the appearance of the seaweed

I really had a blast making this one, hope you all like it too.

A Little Note of Thanks

Hi All,

This is a little thank you card I have made for my sisters, using a My Besties image .... I have loved these images forever, however I have only just got round to purchasing some in the last few months, I really enjoyed having a play with this one.

I have coloured this one using my trusty copics.

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Lips - R89, R29, R20
Hair - E29, E25, E21, R22, R20

Socks&Bow C7, R89, R85, R83, R81
Flowers- C5, RV29, RV23, RV21 Centers - E15, Y17, Y14, Y02

I tried adding a watercolour background, however I wasn't thrilled with how it turned out so I added a a little Picket Fence distress ink, and added some stamping round the edges with my trusty Kanban Flourish stamp.

I have teamed it up with some papers from Bo Bunny - A gift of love
The sentiment is paper expressions
and I have added some Anita's Dimensional stickers ( not really my style now .... I think die cuts have moved us all away from using stickers, but I really need to to use up some of my HUGE stash!! )

Copic Journal

Hello All,

Well as you all know I have been taking the Kit and Clowder classes, I have completed the skin and hair one and I am almost done on the clothing one too ... In the classes Alyce encourages us to keep a copic journal, I so see the value in that, but as yet I have not yet started one, .... so this is me getting started.

The image is Saturated Canary image and surprisingly enough I have coloured her with copic's .. LOL

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20

Stripy top - B97, B95, B93, B91
Trousers - 100, C10, C7, C5, C3, C1

This journal was a lot simpler, but I had issues with a rub on and damaged the image :-( .... So I had to embellish further to cover it up, I think it was a happy accident, as I prefer it, I dont know I think I quite like journals that look busy :-)

Products used:

Blank Journal - hobby craft
Red Card - Co-ordinations
Teal paper - DCWV/going green
Polka Dot lettering and Tag - Daisy D's - Lullaby collection
