I have been seeing loads of designs with cats on lately and wanted to make a card for my friend. However her birthday is in December, so I decided to make her a “half birthday” card!
I used a TiddlyInks digital stamp, coloured it with Copics and cut it out. I then used a dotty stencil and distress ink for the background. I made another stencil by cutting out paw shapes and using the holes as the stencil. The sentiment is stamped in Stazon black ink.
I am entering this card in … TiddlyInks Challenge #183 Happy Birthday
This is the second Julia Spiri design I bought. Again coloured with Copics and layered up. The embellishments are die cut flowers and Liquid Pearls. The large flower has some sparkle added from a clear Wink of Stella pen.
This a the card I made for my step-dad’s birthday. The image is from Pachela Studios on Cuddly Buddly.
I printed off the backing papers, then coloured with Copics and cut out the main image. The clouds were stamped and cut out and the sentiment is a set of tiny alphabet stamps from Hobbycraft. I doodled round the edges.
I discovered Julia Spiri digital stamps about a week ago, and bought a couple of images. The first one is a little elf which I have coloured with my Copic Markers.
I hand drew around the edges of the various papers and scuffed up the edges, then added a couple of brads and some buttons and ribbon. The base card is a Gorjuss card blank and envelope. The sentiment is a rubber stamp free with Creative Stamping magazine a while ago.
Not sure who this card is going to yet.
I recently entered a giveaway on the All Dressed Up Digital Stamps Facebook page. You submitted a card to their gallery and a random number was drawn. My number came up!! I’d only just joined the group too so I was really surprised! My prize was to choose three free images from All Dressed Up Etsy store. I chose ‘I love my puppy’, ‘A little me time’ and ‘All wrapped up’ because it had a knitted scarf in the design.
So this card is the one I am going to enter for the next challenge. If you want to enter click here.
I used the ‘I love my Puppy‘ image. I wanted to use yellow because I’d seen it used recently on another blog. Blue always goes well so I coloured most of the image in. But I left the hair til last and couldn’t decide on Blonde, brown, black or red. None of them seemed to suit. So I thought why not blue. That way it kept the whole image in the same two colours (apart from a couple of very pale green leaves).
Copic marker colours used were: Face E000, E00, R20; Blue B32,B93, B95; Yellow Y11, Y06, Y02, Y08
I then rummaged through my papers and found the blues and yellows, stamped the sentiment and die cut it. Then added the flowers and pearls. There is a bit of blue Sakura Glaze pen on the little flowers and the hair tendrils but it isn’t clear in the photo.
I have a Welsh friend who is two days older than me. We met when we were working together and have kept in touch since I left there 19 years ago!! (Yikes!). Anyway it is his birthday on Thursday so I have made this card for him…….
The dragon image is from Bugaboo stamps and the sentiment is a stamp which was free on a magazine. I drew in the faux stitching around the edge of the card to match it.
Copics used: Reds R02, R05, R17, R27.. Browns E000, E00, E31, E35
I’m getting back into the swing of blogging, probably because I have things to show for my time. I’ve been card making again and entering some challenges – and guess what? I won one. Well I say won, it was a random number draw and my name came up but I’m claiming it as a win. It was the All Dressed Up July Facebook challenge and I submitted this card…. (you have to watermark them so the images can’t be stolen)
The image is actually a freebie in the All Dressed Up FB group files, and is coloured with Copic alcohol markers. I then stamped and coloured the butterfly twice, cut them out and layered them up. I think the backing paper was a freebie with a magazine, and I bought the paper flowers in Hobbycraft. There are some glossy accents but they don’t show in the photo.
My prize is to choose 3 images from the All Dressed Up Etsy store, but I can’t choose!! There are 114 of them!
I’m leaning towards ‘I love my puppy‘, maybe ‘girl on a bike‘ and maybe ‘a little me time‘. But I keep changing my mind!!
