Have a Heart - Tiddly Inks - Winter Wonderland DT Co-ordinator

Good morning again :)  if you are looking for my 'Fussy and Fancy' DT post scroll down.
I didn't make a Tiddly Inks in ages and now 2 on the same day.  This one is 'Have a Heart' and it is for the Winter Wonderland challenge this week and the theme chosen by the lovely Carol S is 'Have a Heart', you must have a heart somewhere, on the image, as a die cut, on ribbon even just on the DP.



I cut her using a SB labels 25. The side boarder strip is from Die-sire I think. Every thing is matted onto gold mirror and co-ordinations Card. the ribbon, pearls and heart buckle are from my stash.


She is coloured with Tria,Flex and Promarkers and I added red litter to the hearts and to the flowers in the field.


Still cant get the glitter to show.

Grow a Little Love - Tiddly Inks - Fussy and Fancy DT.

Good morning and welcome to my first post of the day which is for the Fussy and Fancy challenge.  Jo is the hostess this week and she has chosen a theme of:-

 A recipe.....
Create a design and have some fun,
Use this recipe and your work will be done,
Just use black and white to make a start,
But then add some red , a flowers and a little love heart......X


I have used a Tiddly Inks image of 'Grow a Little Love'.
Just to be a little different I have used a 'Spotlight' technique using the floral heart as the frame for it.

The DP is from Dovecraft and I matted onto co-ordinations card.  The ribbon, flowers and dazzler are from my stash.  The sentiment usesTattered Lace dies for the words, and a chalkboard tag which I bought at a local craft shop. If you look closely you will also see a heart and fairy charm.


A close up to show the flowers better, and you can just about see the glossy accents on them. She is straight cut and coloured with Tria,Flex and Promarkers.

 and a sideways image.

Our sponsor for the challenge is Sweet Lilac flowers who are offering a special prize for the winner.

Harvest Elf - Aurora Wings


Good afternoon, I have been playing with another Aurora Wings image, 'Harvest Elf' which can be found here.  I bought her when first released and have finally managed to colour her'


She is cut using SB grand ovals and grand scalloped ovals.  The DP is from a 'Wellington' pad.  I used copper mirror card from THoltz as a change from gold or silver. Ribbon, dazzler and pearls from my stash.


A close up, it's amazing how adding a different surround changes the image so much.   She is colourd using Tria markers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.  At one point I had so many out I hardly had space to work..


A photo of the inside where I foiled the sentiment with hot foil before mounting on Tonic oval.

I made this card just for fun and to enter challenges.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Spring Flowers - Conie Fong - Passion for Promarkers DT



Good morning it's the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and the theme chosen by Nic is 'Show us your Favourites'.  So a really easy one as we all have a favourite something when it comes to cards.  I think everyone would have thought I would have a card covered in flowers and glitter.  Well the name of the digi is 'Spring Flowers' by Conie Fong, which I bought ages ago from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I love her designs and don't use them often enough.


She is cut using Go Create dies and layered up with co ordinations card.  If you look closely at the flowers in the field there is lots of red glitter which really shows up IRL.  The ribbon, pearls and sparkler are from my stash, and I added a SB butterfly.


A close up. The green hills, field of flowers and the sky were coloured using my E-Brush, with Spectrum noir pens. ( I bought my Ebrush more than a year ago and I'm still waiting for a holder for Promarkers, and had to buy a set of blue SN's and one of green as I couldn't get 'bluetack' to hold the Promarkers)
The main colouring is Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.

Still trying to show the glitter, I used nuvo glitter for the flowers and  Glamour Dust for the butterfly.

The inside does match the front.  We have two generous sponsors this week.

Letraset are giving the winner a set of 5 bright Promarkers
 


and Di's Digi Stamps have a $12 voucher to spend in store for one lucky winner

New Baby - Concertina Card - Winter Wonderland DT, Crafters Companion, Sugar Nellie, Wee Stamps, Mo's Digital Perncil



Good morning and welcome. I'm here today with a new card for the Winter Wonderland challenge, with the theme chosen by Lena, of 'Pastel Colours.
A friend asked me to make a card for a baby who has finally been discharged from the premature baby ward.  So this is what I created.


This card features the gorgeous Bambino stamp from Sugar Nellie.  I made a concertina card with the dies from Crafter's Companion. I really love this image.  The fancy scroll work around the edges are an extra to compliment the main die. The dangly bits are from my stash and are a dummy, angel, teddy bear and a pram.


As you can see he is called Joey, and the letters I added are from TLace stepper card dies.
The centre features images from Mo's Digital Pencil, Wee stamps and Lily of the Valley toppers.


It has 6 pages and as I didn't have thick enough card I ended up cutting 12 and gluing them together.
I coloured the images with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers.

We are being sponsored this week by Di's Digital Stamps and they are giving the winner a $12 gift voucher to spend in store.


The other Snowflakes ladies have created some amazing cards for your inspiration this week and I hope you will check them out here.

Thanks for taking the time to look , don't forget to check back on Monday for the winners of the last challenge

Lily Lullaby - Ching Chou Kuik - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good morning and welcome to another challenge at Passion for Promarkers where Marie has chosen the theme of 'Flowers'.  This can be flowers added to your project, backing paper or an image of Flowers or with flowers.

I have used a digi from Ching chou Kuik called Lily Lullaby which has flowers as part of the image, and added lots more.



I have used a monochrome palate. She is cut using TL ovals with 2 mounts behind her.  The image has so many flowers that I stayed with a plain background and added Lace from Joanna Sheen, Noor corners and Cheery Lynn butterflies and leaf flourish.  Ribbon pearls and dazzler from my stash. The flowers are from WOC.



A close up of the image which is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers. I  added a little glitter to her hair ornaments and some Nuvo drops to the butterflies.


A view of the inside with TL roses and a CC sentiment.

Art Deco Melody - Lemon Shortbread - Crafts and Me - Fussy and Fancy DT


Hello again.  I am back with a card for the Fussy and Fancy DT, where our theme this week is 'Fashion' and was chosen by Tone.  This is an image that can be purchased at 'Crafts and Me' and is Art Deco Melody from Lemon Shortbread.  I bought this image ages ago and never got around to using it.


She is cut using a TL oval with a nestie behind her.  The deco style flourishes are from Tonic.  The dp is a DCWV and I layered with card from CC.  


I coloured her with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers, added a little distress ink around the edges and added gems from my stash.  It doesn't show in the photos but I used Sakura pens to her neckline and hipline.


A view of the inside but this time I used a tonic oval and deckled oval, and the sentiment is a magazine freebie.




We are  being sponsored this week by Sweet Lilac Flowers, and they are offering the winner a special prize.

I have to admit to being in awe of the talent of the ladies on the Fussy and Fancy team and you can find your inspiration here, I really hope you click on the link and take a look.

Thanks for looking today

Snowman Broom - Crafty Sentiments - Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning everyone. I am here today for my first post of the day, and it's for the Winter Wonderland DT where our theme this week chosen by me is 'Glitter and Shine'.  This is my first post as DT coordinator for the Snowflakes team, so I had to have lots of snowflakes.  One of our sponsor this week Crafty Sentiments, and  I have used the really cute image of 'Snowman Broom' which you can find here.


The background is straight cut with the corners rounded, and I fussy cut him to make him stand out.  The snowflakes cut from mirror board are from a MS punch around the page set.  The Sentiment is by Crafts too.
My christmas present to me was a Heidi Swapp Minc machine and the blue layer inside the mirror board is made from blue foil.


I didn't do much colouring, but what little there is was using Promarkers.  I used 3 different glitters, gold and brown on the broom and white on him, and I so wish I cold get it to show in the photos.  I also added glossy accents to his nose buttons and eyes.

We have two wonderful sponsors this week, one as I have said is Crafty Sentiments who are offering the winner 3 digi's of their choice from their store



and The Craft Barn who have generously giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend in store

Can I Keep Them - Aurora Wings


Good morning and welcome to my two new followers :)  I'm here with a card I forgot to blog that made for the Aurora Wings December Challenge, luckily I have realised before the entries close.  I have used the fabulously cute 'Can I Keep Them' image by Mitzi.


I went with a dramatic colour scheme.  She is cute using SB Decorative labels 8 and mounted onto a straight cut rectangle with the corners rounded.  The backing behind her uses a Tonic Lych Gate die. Ribbon, pearls and button from my stash.


She is coloured with Triamarkers, Flexmarkers and Promarkers with Prisma pencils for more definition and distress ink inside the frame.


This shows the inside with more of the Tonic die used.
