To suit my digi stamp, I have flipped the sketch so my image is on the right. This is the first time I have used digi stamp. This image "Lydia goes Shopping" is free from Little Claire Designs. You can download it from here. I had fun colouring her. Here is a close up of Lydia.
For this card, I have also used one of my favourite colour combinations- pink and green. Lydia's scarf and belt are meant to be green but somehow it turned out to be blue in the photo?? I think I need more practice on my photo taking skills! ^_^ I will be entering this card in Little Claire's Designs: Challenge 3 - Pink & Green too.
If you just dropped by, I would like to say hope you enjoyed this post and have a happy day!
I am having a go at taking part in the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #39. I do not have a Waltzingmouse stamp but after seeing the sketch I just thought I had to have a try at this. Here is the sketch:
To join in the challenge, the Waltzingmouse stamp image is not required. However, I would certainly love to win one. Bunting is so hot in the card making world at the moment. Never thought of using them on my card but hey, everything has its first time. So here is my card for the challenge:
It is my brother-in-law's birthday today. Unfortunately we are not able to deliver this card and his present to him today due to a rescheduled dentist appointment. I have attached the bunting on a blue string with red buttons at each end. Buttons are the trend at the moment too! I love to personalise my card so I placed my brother-in-law's name on the bunting. The Little Cake Shoppe (Trio Delight) stamp image is from Papermania. I have stamped and coloured these yummy cup cakes with Copic pens. Then decorated them with Crystal Stickles and Crystal Lacquer. Finally, I finished off the card by stapling short pieces of ribbon behind the image and stamping the sentiment "Time for cake" on the top left hand corner.
My daughter is certainly sold on the bunting design and said this is the best card that I have ever made. I am chuffed!
I have slightly altered the sketch but you can still see all the elements in it.
For this card, I have used Nellie Snellen's Multi Frames set MFD 005 for my Tilda with rose image. So I will be entering this card in Magnolia Stamp Lovers: Die Cut Challenge. I have coloured Tilda with Copic marker pens and paper piecing her dress with My Mind's Eye- quite contrary Summer paper. I have added glitter glue on both Tilda's wing and rose.
For Totally Tilda Challenge #18: Tilda with Chipboard, I have added this lovely butterfly chipboard on the top right hand corner. I have enhanced the butterfly by adding the clear crystal glitter glue on its inner wings and the red coloured glitter glue on its outer edge.
Here is another close-up photo to show the sentiment from Clearly Hand Stamped designed by 3Birds. As I want a subtle effect for the sentiment, I have stamped it in Brilliance pearlescent Sky Blue ink which blends in well with the blue background paper. A piece of thin pink ribbon and a blue beaded chain were added at the bottom of the card to finish off, I think, beautifully!!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like the card as much as I do.
In my personal view, clean & simple in card making is not easy. It is a skill of knowing when to stop; knowing which embelishments to pick and add, as there are so many on the market. The temptation is to add them all on one card. So I hope my card here is clean & simple to suit all pink loving princesses!
I have simply embossed 2 pieces of white card for the top and bottom area. Added 3 fabric squares in the middle. Then added two fabric/ ribbon roses on both left and right squares. For the center main image I used Copic Pens to colour Gorjuss Girl and paper piecing the dress. I believe it is a card full of textures!
My passion for crafts start when I was just a little girl. I love making personalised cards and presents for friends and family.
This is my blog to share my love of card making with you. Hope you will like them too as every card is made with love and hugs.
