Good morning everyone and as it's Wednesday that means you have me, Ann-Marie, popping in to share some crafty love with you all.
I have a card to show you today which I have made using the gorgeous My Mind's Eye 'Chalk Studio 2' papers and I do love these folks together with the adorable Tiddly Inks 'Birthday Wishes' stamp. I love the fact that I have only used one sheet of paper and I coloured up the image, cut her out and raised her a little with some 3d glue. I didn't really want to cover much of the paper so just made a pennant from Whimsy's 'Celebration Pennants' set and stamped it on to card which I had coloured with the same pens as the image and cut them out.
Happy Tuesday everyone! It's DT Linda here. Are you almost ready for Easter? I'm really not lol, I have so much still to do! Anyhoo....on to the reason I'm here. This week I've used one of the sweet little Mimosa stamps from Bildlamarna, and normally I like to colour up these cuties with my Distress Inks, but I thought for change I'd use my copics. I rather like the way she turned out especially her hair. Links to products used are as always at the end of my post.
I used these gorgeous papers from Pion, and I believe that they've now been discontinued, so best snap them up from Tracy while you still can...I must admit I'm very sad that I won't be able to get this range in the future as it's one of my favourites. I do hope they plan on replacing it with something similar, because while the A Day in May range is drop dead gorgeous, it doesn't have the range of colours that this collection has. Luckily for me I still have various sheets in my stash. I inked the edges and then sewed them with top stitch thread.
I used some lovely La-La Land and Die-namics die cuts and this rather lush Prima flower, though I was rather mean to it an pulled out the centre and replaced it with one of my rolled rose ones. I finished off with this fab sentiment from Whimsy, cut with a matching die, a little stamp cut from the element sheet to match the papers used, and some liquid pearls.
Well that's all from me for today and I get a bit of a break soon to get ahead with my crafting, and enjoy my holiday
I just had to get this Uptown Girl inked up this weekend, she is just such a sweetheart.
I went for a good and big 8x8 card for this one because so I could use some nice big cuts of the Echo Park bundle of joy mini kit and its stickers!! oooh its so gorgeous!! I paper pieced her dress up and coloured the rest of her with my promarkers then it was just a case of choosing which couple of stickers I wanted.
I stamped the sentiment that comes with her on a scrap of the pink and then spent some time carefully die cutting my other scraps to get a lovely little assortment of fishtail banners I could layer up at the side.
I added a little enamel dot onto the edge because they do just make fabulous faux brads! they look awesome with none of that poke it through and fold the backs down palava!!!
I used copics to colour them up. I matched her with lush papers from Authentique - Elegant The sentiment is from Whimsy - Simple Sentiments. I went with a more unusual colour pallet today, but I am loving the purple with the turquoise :) Short and sweet today, busy, busy with Bethy today as its the school hols.
Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for popping in xxx
Hello there, DT Michelle here back with another card to share with you. Today I am using the gorgeous MFT Fishnet Stencil and using it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I love how these colours all blend so well together. The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Moments stamp set and I have cut it out using one of the MFT Fishtail Flags Layerz Stax Die-Namics. I have finished the card off with a few MME Enamel Dots.
Hello everyone, Ann-Marie popping in today with some crafty inspiration for you all.
Well I've gone back to my favourite style of card for my post this week, so I have a criss cross card to share with you today. I decided to play with the gorgeous Saturated Canary image "Yuki" and she's so sweet and I love her layers of clothes. Anyway, I teamed her up with the yummy Echo Park 'Birthday Girl' papers which are gorgeous and inspired the colours of my image and I don't use yellow very often but it looks so pretty with the papers. I really wanted the papers and image to stand out so I matted it on to black card stock. I cut out some of the elements from one of the sheets to use on my card too and on the pull out section as well.
Happy Tuesday! It's Linda nipping in quick with my DT inspiration, and today I'm using a fabulous fun stamp from Time for Tea, available in rubber by Whimsy Stamps. I only got this through from Tracy on Saturday and I couldn't wait to use her!
Isn't she just too cute?! Love the way her hair mimics her lollipop, so I just had to go ahead and colour a part of it the same. I thought she looked kind of like she belonged at a fairground, so I matched her to these wonderful colourful papers from MME. I must admit that before I started DT'ing for Tracy, I'd never used a single MME paper, but I've become a bit of an MME addict! Particularly any of the Lost and Found collections....yum!
Copic colours are listed on my blog, ....or at least they will be when I find the list under the mess on my desk!
I popped a La-La Land Crafts hot air balloon die cut behind her and decorated it with these sugary sweet Prima Sugardots and popped a couple of mini ticket sentiments on the other side. I kept embellishments simple as I didn't want to cover too much of that lush paper.
The inside is decorated very simply with some of the DP I used on the front and a few more Sugardots. There's lots of space for a message too.
Well that's all from me today folks, but I'll be back here next week with more inspiration. ~Until then, enjoy your week and have fun crafting! :) xx
