Lacy Sunshine Challenge #5 Anything Goes!

Time for another challenge over at Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog and the theme this time is Anything Goes.

For my DT card, I have used Eleanor Painting Butterflies and I've used my fave colour combo pink and turquiose!

The cards and papers were from my stash, I used copics to colour Eleanor and the corners are cut using a memory box corner die. The flowers, charm, and pearls and gems are all from my stash also. I have added diamante bow embellishments to Eleanor's pig tails. The sentiment is printed out and I used circle nesties to cut it out.

You can see the bow embellishments a little better in this close up of Eleanor.

Copics used:- E000, E00, E11, E23, E245, E27, B00, B02, B04, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG11, RV14, RV17, RV19, R81, R83, R85, V20, V22, V25, C1, C3, C5, YR07, E13, YR04, YR09

Happy Birthday Dad In Law!!

Well, as the title says, it was my Father In Laws birthday yesterday so I thought I would share the card I made for him. 

I made this card a good few weeks ago (not like me to be so prepared), and last week, my mum and dad in law were on holiday and sent us this picture message

Hows that for spooky!!

The image is a digi stamp from Dr Digi's and was coloured with copics. The embellishments and papers were all from my stash. I printed the sentiment out after creating in a word document. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like it.

CCC Challenge #6

Well, its time for our next challenge over at Creative Creations Challenges, the theme this time is 'Anything B' and our sponsor is the fab Saturated Canary!

Here is my DT card.

My B's are :- Blue, Brown, Bling, Beads, Bow, Bunting, Butterfly and Birthday.

I used Saturated Canary's image Party Hardy. All the bits and bobs were from my stash. I cut out the bunting with a craft knife and using the same concept as a shaker card, covered the back with acetate and filled the bunting triangles with seed beads. Love how this one turned out and it looks much prettier than the piccy shows!

Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see all your entries and good luck!

Lacy Sunshine Challenge #4

Time for our next challenge over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog and the theme this time is 'Layers'.

Here is my DT card using Genevieve, another of Heather's Melancholy Moppets, hope you like her.

I've used lots of layers of paper and card and also a layer of thick lace going across the centre of the card. There are also many layers to the paper roses I've used. The roses started off white and I inked them using Distress Ink re-inker and a water pen, this gives them a subtle stain of colour around the edges of the petals. I think the shade I used was Vintage Photo. The image was coloured with copics, YR21, YR24, YR27, E13, E15, E17, RV11, YG07.
I have left the card without a sentiment until I decide who and what it is going to be used for.

Hope you like her and can't wait to see your entries for the challenge! 

Thanks for stopping by.

Lacy Sunshine Melancholy Moppets

Heather has a new line of digi stamps over in the Lacy Sunshine store called Melancholy Moppets.

She has asked her Sunshine Girls to make up some designs with the lovely images and here are mine!

First of all meet Gwendolyn.

 A couple of close ups of Gwendolyn. She was coloured with Copics. 
Copics used:- E00, E000, E13, E15, E17, RV21, N7, N5, N3, C1, C3, C5, R59, R56, R39, Y32, Y35

Secondly, meet Rosalind.

She was coloured with copic (It was only after I'd finished the card, I realised I'd coloured in the rags in her hair the same as her hair!! oooppps! I don't think you can tell unless you look very closely!!)

Copics used:- E00, E000, B00, B02, E23, E25, E27, E29, BV000, BV01, BV02, R59, R56, R39, Y32, Y35, Y38, T1, T3, T5.

All the embellishments and papers used on each card are all from stash, I couldn't tell you the make except, the paper with the compass on the Rosalind card was in a large pack of paper I bought from Costco about 7 years ago!! I still have tons of it left and I think there was something like 1000 pieces in it! all 12x12!

Thanks for stopping by for a look, why not check out the other Sunshine Girls blogs, you can find us all in the sidebar at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog.

Tiddly Inks Birthday!

Here is a quick and clean, simple card I made for my daughter to give to her friend on her birthday.

I used Tiddly Inks Emma image and coloured her with Copics. I didn't write the colours down but looking at her I'd say I've use E000, E00, E11, E13, E15, E17, R81, R83, R85, Y38, E31, E33, E35. The papers and embellishments are all from my stash and I've used a pink Brilliance ink pad to stamp the sentiment and cut it out using scalloped nestie circles.

Thanks for looking, hope you like her.

Get Well Soon Big Bruv!!

Well, last week my biggest brother had a heart attack. He has had a stent fitted and is on the mend but has been very lucky to have had a warning first. So I made him a get well card using Lacy Sunshine's Pickles fun in the rain! 

Here he is!

I coloured the image with copics, all the papers and bazzill card were from my stash, as are the buttons and pearls. I dotted clear dew drops around the front of the card to give the look of raindrops, it looks much better IRL, its hard to see in the piccy. Also, used nesties and xcut dies for the digi and sentiment. I typed the sentiment up on the pooter and printed it off, and inside the card, it says get well soon to match the sentiment and is matted on the papers that are used on the front (forgot to take a piccy of the inside! ooops!!)

Copics used:- YG21, YG23, YG25, B60, B63, B66, R24, R27, E13, E15, E17, E23, E25, BG10, BG11 and BLENDER for the puddle.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mothers Day

Have been quiet for a few days due to pooter problems but have pinched my daughters net book so I can do some blogging!!! So here's the card I made for my mum in law for mothers day. She's my second mum, my mum is no longer with us, so I'm lucky I still have hubby's mum.

I used a Paper Shelter image and colured her with copics. The flowers, papers and embellishments are all from my stash and the image was cut out with xcut large oval dies. The sentiment was a freebie I found online. I also added a diamante bow onto the hat to cover up the printed bow and make it stand out more.

Copics used :- E000, E00, E11, B00, B02, RV23, E23, E25, E27, E33, E31, E35, R81, R83, R85, BV00, BV01, BV02, R27, YG07

Creative Creations Challenges #5

Time for a new challenge over at Creative Creations Challenges and this time the theme is 'All About Mum' and our sponsor is Jelly Park.

I used Jelly Park image 'boy and dog on a boat' and coloured the image with copics. The papers and embellishments were all bits and bobs from stash and I added an anchor charm to the ribbon bow. The sentiment was made up by myself on computer program and the ship wheel clip art I found by googling free clip art images. It says 'To The Best Mummy' and the insert inside says 'From Your Little Sailor'.

Lacy Sunshine Challenge #3

Its time for challenge #3 at Lacy Sunshine and the theme this time is Double Trouble! So could be pairs of people, or animals or items etc .

Here is my DT card.  I had such fun playing with these new digis! You can find all Heather's new digi's in her brand new Lacy Sunshine store, the ONLY OFFCIAL place to buy Heather's digi's.

The image was coloured with copics and all the papers and cardstock were from my stash. My pooter is broke at the moment and I normally would have made a 'scene' with Jamie and Maddie, and the digi bits. This time I printed them all out individually and cut them all my hand! A long fiddly job but worth it when the card was finished! I love how it turned out! The sentiment was printed out from the pooter (luckily my daughter has a netbook I can pinch until my lappy is sorted out!! ) Jamie and Maddie were cut out using the xcut large oval dies and then sponged Bundled Sage Distress ink around the edge of the image so that it wasn't so stark white against the camouflage coloured background papers.

Hope you like my card and hope to you see you taking part over on our Challenge Blog! You can also come join the Lacy Sunshine facebook group for lots of chat, hints and tips and loads of fun! Just search 'Lacy Sunshine' on Facebook.
