A Favoutite

I thought I’d share one of my absolute favourite Make it Crafty images. The very first time I came across MIC was when someone posted a card made with one of the gorgeous whimsical houses . I couldn’t resist hopping straight over to the store and buying a few and the Mushroom house has to be one of my favourites, especially for making ” Welcome to your new home” cards!

I thought a pencil coloured one, just for a change!!! so I coloured with prismas and polychromos onto kraft. The paper is Prima Fairy Flora, with some  mesh and a key charm from my stash. The sentiment I created in word, after finally figuring out how to get the spacing to suit! Took a while, but realised using individual text boxes and text wrapping, I could put what I wanted where I wanted. Yay!

To round out the scene I actually added Daffodil dell digi onto each side of the house digi, by merging them in Word.

To finish off this adorable setting what could be better than some MIC dragonflies and a butterfly coloured with copic R27 then stickled, and roundleaf chippies which I coloured with copics G99.

A Cute doggie

I made this card a wee while ago , after my pencils arrived and I spent hours playing with them. This gorgeous little dog is a Chrissy Armstrong stamp from Whimsy , cute huh?

The copper foil I ran through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder, the gorgeous delicate chipboard corners are from Make it Crafty ( I'm trying to stop hoarding these, I love them!) The flowers are from my stash.

I've been unwell the last few weeks, started with a cold and a hoarse voice, which led over Easter weekend to a total loss of voice....and its still (2 weeks later) no more than a squawk and squeak with the occasional burst of sound. Everyone thinks its hilarious and the jokes are flying about how quiet it is, and everyone must be loving it....yeh, yeh, whatever! The doctor's instructions were to keep my mouth shut, no mouth breathing, no talking, no whispering......have you ever tried it? IMPOSSIBLE!  
 So if anyone finds my voice out there....please send it back, I'm REALLY over this!

Fairy Dahlia

This is  my first time colouring the gorgeous Fairy Dahlia and she is sitting on the fairy chair, both available from Make it Crafty.

I merged these two digis using word, Zoe has a great tutorial on doing this and its SOOOOO easy!   Anyway, I printed onto kraft cardstock  so that I could have another play with my new polychromos pencils, did I mention I have 120 of them? LOL!   I’m having so much fun with them my copics are being neglected.

Anyway, I’ve used some gorgeous prima paper and edged all the pieces with picket fence distress crackle paint, before layering the pieces, with some bits of muslin cloth. The flowers are all from my stash. The chipboard corners I left plain this time to try and balance out the kraft paper a bit. I adore these corners as they finish off a card so nicely.

 The Whimsy garden stamp I’ve  stamped onto white cardstock and sprayed with 2 colours of glimmermist to blend in with the backing papers.

And there we have it, a sweet girly card . Hope you find a little inspiration in this.

Fancy folds

The challenge over at Southern Girls is to use fancy folds, ie not your normal plain card.   I decided to make a stair step card, because I've never done one before. 

The image is One of the pack ( Lycaonia)  from delicious Doodles, the paper I can't remember....its from my stash anyway!  As is the seam binding ehich I hand-dyed with distress inks.  The dark brown metal strip is from Ten Second studio, I love this stuff but hardly ever use it!

 I've been at home the last couple of days, with severe laryngitis.No real sore throat, just no voice.  Never had it like this before, I sound like a chipmunk who has been inhaling helium! Squeak, squeak!  The dogs love it, they can ignore me, and I'm sure DH is loving it too, soooo quiet! LOL!

Sew it

Well I had to get the sewing machine out to do some alterations on new pants for DH and decided while it was out to have a play with sewing some cards too.  Its really not a biggie to set it up but I guess I'm lazy and don't usually bother. Anyway, this cutie image is from Marianne Design and she is called Sweet Daisy. 

The paper is MME and the gorgeous chipboard frame is from Make it Crafty and can be found HERE

Big Boys

A card for a teenage boy , don't you just hate them?  This card was sooooooo hard to put together and I don't like it that much but what can ya do?  At least he's a cool surfer dude (from Mo Manning) , and the paper looks suitably dirty! LOL!

I'm entering this in Waste Not Wednesday challenge- the paper I've had for years and years, the hardware is SU stuff I've had forever .
