My Lovely Supporters

12 Feb 2011


Hi all I am afraid I have Gastric Flu and have not been well enough to post my DT work, I am one day late showing my DT card for Crafty Ann's I do hope that I will be forgiven.  I have popped on quickly to do todays post for both Crafty Ann's Challenge and One Stop Crafts.
My first card is for Crafty Ann's the themes for both challenges is LOVE.
I have used both Crafty Ann's pre coloured Pink Roses, which I have cut out and decoupaged, and paper, I also inserted a poem called Roses by George Eliot, I added a blue ribbon and blue pearls.
My next card is for this week's 
One Stop Crafts Challenge the theme was chosen by me and is
LOVE, this is not necessarily for Valentine but for cards/projects letting someone close to us know that we Love them. 
I have had to postpone my new printer set up so I have had to use one of the images that I have stored in my 'image' box.  I chose to use this little beauty from Elizabeth Bell.
I have coloured her with Copics, the papers are a mix, I added ribbon, flower and stamped sentiment.

Our Sponsor this week is the wonderful Robyn's Fetish

I hope to be back visiting you very soon 
Please come join our challenges at both 
we really love to see you.

I am so sorry I have not been to visit but I have caught a stomach bug and it has drained me, still is at the moment.  I also have no printer so am unable to print anything off, I did manage to make a few DT cards which I will be scheduling but had to use images from my little box.  I hope to be back very soon.

Stamp Fairy Challenge #9

Hi all today our new challenge starts at 
The theme this week is
To add Lace and Hearts to you card/project, we have a twist which is do not use the colours red or pink.
Here is my project.
I decided to make both a box and a little tote bag.
The box is 6x4x2 the bag is 3x3
I went with the colours of Orange and Yellow, I have used one of the Lenny Bee images that can been seen HERE.  I coloured him with Copics cut him out and mounted him onto the top of the box with silicone glue. 
I have used one of the new backing papers that are also available at Stamp Fairy, I added gold ribbon that has silver trim then topped that with Lace flowers, the hearts have been embossed and punched out with my SU large heart punch. 
I used 200gr cream Parchment card for both box and bag, I used a MS border punch for the corners then used chalk to highlight, the handle was punched also using a MS border punch.  I added wide gold ribbon, a handmade flower, hearts and some of the Lace flowers that I had left over from the box.
The picture below shows Lenny close up, I also added a couple of handmade flowers.

I am also entering this into the following challenges
I do hope that you will join us at Stamp fairy this week we would love to see you all,

Tilda and Penny Black

Hi all I have a couple of cards to show you that I am entering into some challenges
This first card I am entering into the following challenges:
I have used one of my new Penny Black Slapstick stamps and coloured the image with Copics.  I actually stamped the image twice cut them both out and 3d'd them with silicone glue.  The papers are Bearlymine, I added the ribbon, buttons, flowers, butterflies and a computer generated sentiment.
Now my next card is a little different, I have called it a Twin, Side Opening Easel Card.  I was inspired to create this while watching a craft programme, I like to have either the TV or Stereo on while crafting and on this occasion I had the TV on, I was busy working away when I looked up and saw the almost finished product and thought that I could work it out and do one for myself.
The first picture shows how the card looks when closed.
The next pictures show it when opened. 

The flowers are handmade with Mulberry paper that has fine gold threads running through it and is about the same thickness as tissue paper. 
This image of Tilda I have used for the very first time, I won this stamp way back last year. 
I used a red card base, I also used Bazzill embossed card stock and Parchment 200gr card.
The papers behind the flowers are Bearlymine, I coloured Tilda with Copics cut her out and 3d'd her, the doily heart I recently bought from Joanna Sheen.  I punched out a couple of hearts and adhered some small red crystal hearts to the tops.  I also added pearls and some red Organza and silk ribbon.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I love to follow tutorials but have never done one myself, if you would like me to do a picture step by step of how to make this Twin, Side Opening Easel Card then please let me know.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit, see you soon.  Hugs.
