This week’s card is made with Flower – Hi from Bugaboo Stamps.

Bugaboo Stamps make such fun and quirky stamps – I love the fun and life in them – and the sentiments always make me laugh!

So this card is a real summer stunner. Ladybirds had to feature high on this card – I love them but sadly we don’t see as many nowadays as we used to when I was a littel girl. For those of you who follow this page it probably comes as no surprise that I had to do some decoupage with this one too.

I printed the image several times. Made an extra frame with the ladybird. Cut out several layers to decoupage up after they had been coloured using my Copic Ciao’s. When done I layered it all up on a 6 x 6 quite card. 

RECIPE:

  • Digi Image: Flower – Hi from Bugaboo Stamps
  • 160 gms white card for printing
  • All mounted on a 6 x 6 white card.
  • Copic Ciao pens – Y15, YR07, R17 and YG67

This week’s card is made with Alana from SheepSki Designs.

This image made me think of fashion, so I thought what if I create a shop window which will depict mannequins with dresses in different colours.

The image was printed 5 times and coloured in 5 different colours using my Zig pens – Yellow, Bright Yellow, Pink, Purple and Blue. I decided not to colour in the bodies or the hair so the dresses would have an extra wow factor. I decorated with a little “diamond” at the top of the dress.

The images were added to an A5 black card, which had a white mat on top, a black strip of card and 5  die-cut strips.  The final touch was die cut letters to spell out Congrats. I think this card could be great for a school leaver or for a birthday.

 

RECIPE:

  • Digi Image from SheepSki Designs  –  Alana.
  • Zig real brush pens
  • Digi stamp printed onto 160 gms white card, cut out and coloured.
  • Black and white card for layering.
  • First Edition alphabet Dies
  • Diamond gems embellishment
  • all mounted on top of an A5 black card.

This weeks prize is a $20 voucher for the online store.

This week’s card is made with Brick Wall from DRS Designs.

A brick wall is a fabulous blank canvas for almost any theme which is why I opted for the Brick Wall. I could have gone all pinks and floral on a nice grey background with lots of green. But I didn’t! Instead I decided to go with a cool boys cards.

I started by copying and pasting the Brick Wall image several times in a Word Document until I had an A4 page full of bricks. I then proceeded to cut out a piece of wall to fit my 6 x 6 card. I coloured the wall using Jim Holtz Distress Ink – Pumice Stone making sure I did it rough and uneven and leaving a few places almost white. I also cut out a few individual bricks and coloured these in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

The boy image and sentiments are from Polkadoodles. They were coloured using ZIG real brush pens.

I chose a white 6 x 6 inch card which got a black mat which I stuck my Brick Wall to. I added the boy charactar and the sentiments before placing the small individual tiles around the card mounted on foam pads to add dimension. Fairly quick card with enough grunge to keep any young boy happy!

RECIPE:

  • Digi Image from DRS DesignsBrick Wall.
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Pumice Stone and Gathered Twigs
  • Digi boy image and sentiments from Polkadoodles – Cool Dude.
  • Zig real brush pens
  • Digi stamps printed onto 160 gms white card, cut out and coloured.
  • Black card for layering.
  • all mounted on top of a 6 x 6 square white card.

This week’s card is made with Sunflowers from SheepSki Designs.

For this image I was a bit torn about what to do, I printed out small and big images and also made a background of the stamp. In the end I decided it was such a beautiful image on it’s own in it’s simplicity that it didn’t need a fanfare around it.

So with that in mind I printed the image – BIG – and coloured it with my Zig watercolour pens. I used a bit of brown card for some matting and finished up adding a simple Happy Birthday sentiment cut in brown with a yellow shadow. Everything was added to a big 8 x 8 inch white card – voila!

RECIPE:

  • Digi Image from SheepSki DesignsSunflowers.
  • Zig real brush pens
  • Digi stamp printed onto 160 gms white card, cut out and coloured.
  • Brown card for layering and sentiment, a bit of yellow card for sentiment.
  • all mounted on top of a 8 x 8 square white card.

This week’s card is made with Art Palette from QKR Stampede.

When you are a crafter – I think we are all drawn to a pain palette. Part of me wanted to go with a tone on tone colour scheme for the palette, but in the end I decided to go all out and add lots of colour – just as you often see the palette. It is such a great and versatile design – and can be used for any occasion. It works great as a background to another image – or indeed as the main design with a burst of colour behind it. I may add some other images to this page later…..

 

RECIPE:

  • Digi Image from QKR Stampede –Art Palette.
  • Zig real brush pens
  • Digi stamp printed onto 160 gms white card, cut out and coloured. 
  • Background and image of girl painting comes from The Paper Shelter and image is called Seeking Inspiration.
  • all mounted on top of a 6 x 6 square white card adding a stamped sentiment to finish the card.
