Vintage

It's time for a new challenge at DIGI CHOOSDAY and this week the Design Team were challenged to make a vintage style card, but as always the theme to enter is ANYTHING GOES.

Well this is sooo not my style, but having watched Nikky Hall on Hochanda recently, I took some inspiration from her use of papers and stamps.

So, here is my "vintage card"



The papers are from Winnie in Wonderland, I cut 2.5 inch squares and then edged them with distress ink and layered them onto Kraft and coral card.

I found the sentiment in the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection and added to a oval die in the silhouette studio, this was also edged with distress ink.

Next I stamped 2 butterflies from Daisy Days STAMP ME onto the Winnie wonderland paper and fussy cut them.

I then stamped them onto the oval and glued the fussy cut butterflies on top.

Finally I used a bubble stamp from the same collection and also some liquid pearls, round the edge of the oval.


Thanks for looking and I do hope to see your entries in the challenge this week.

Bubble Fairies

Today I had a go at making bubbles, with  home made stencil and my ink pads.

I used white, Pink and Blue inks on a black background.  I also used a white pencil around the edges and to create a shine effect.

All the stamps are by Lavinia Stamps.


I used  light blue embossing powder on the sentiment and added some glitter dots and stripes.

Sparkle and Shine


I hope you all enjoyed the gorgeous bank holiday weather here in the UK, wasn't it lovely for a change!!

At DIGI CHOOSDAY this week, we are all about sparkle and shine, so I have added both to my project.

The image I have chosen is Ruby Celebrations and she is coloured with copics.



To add my sparkle I used some silver washi tape on the pearl grey background, matted and layered my image and added a couple of glitter stars.

For shine, I added glossy accents to the balloon.

Our challenge as always is ANYTHING GOES, or you can join the design team and add some sparkle or shine.

Together

I haven't played with my Lavinia stamps in a while, but at Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago, I found the perfect stamp to create a beautiful background for them by Inkylicious.

I used Distress Oxides on the stamp, spritzed with a little water, then added some stars with a white gel pen.

Apart from the background, all other stamps are by Lavinia Stamps

Paper Pieced Princess

Something new for me this week for my DIGI CHOOSDAY inspiration, paper piecing!!

So I think I may have tried this once a long time ago and it was a bit of a hot mess, so I took my time with this one and admit to needing a little guidance from my teamies.

Anyway here she is Serenity Princess from one of my favourite collections Serenity Fairy Wishes.



I started by printing some of the lovely papers from Winnie Special Moments, then printed my little princess on top. I am not much of a hand cutter, but think I did ok cutting out all the elements I need for my card.

I found some plain card for her hair and again printed the image and cut.

Once all was cut out, I coloured her skin with Copics and glued all my layers together.



I used Distress Oxide inks and gold spritz to decorate the photo mount from inside a frame and then stamped and embossed using Polkadoodles Summertime STAMP ME stamps.

Finishing off with some gems and resin flowers.  I really enjoyed doing something outside my comfort zone, I may even do it again!!

Ruby Sweet

So here is my final card for the new release at Polkadoodles, the beautiful 'Ruby Sweet'.

I have made a simple easel card for her, in Red and Gold.


She is of course coloured with my trust Copics.  I used a die for the red bow and just added a few tiny red flowers and a Dream Sentiment, I think she is dreaming of Mr Right!!



I think you will agree Ruby is a beauty and so lovely to colour, I am looking forward to seeing more of Ruby this year.

Ruby Boho Chic

It is the final day of inspiration for the new release at Polkadoodles and I have 2 images to share today.

First up is 'Ruby Boho Chic'.

I used a rose cut out card from the silhouette store and backed with a rich Purple card, then coloured this cutie to match, with my Copics.


As I printed her direct onto the card base, the comics didn't blend quite as I would like, but I still think she looks lovely.

Pop back later for my final inspiration card using Ruby Sweet.
