Shoes….

Hi everyone. I’m a little late with this post, but better late than never!

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #630 is All Dressed Up. The theme this week is “Female”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

For this one coloured the image with pencils, and cut the image out to layer onto a background. I inked the background and layered this under a die cut in black. I think it’s quite striking, but allows the topper to still stand out.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image M printed onto super smooth card
  • Backing paper from my stash inked with distress oxide inks
  • Colouring pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Distress oxide inks
  • Metal die
  • Black card
  • Card base – 300gsm

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.

Winter vibes

We are now into February, where has the last month gone?

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #625 is ,All Dressed Up (ADU) and the theme is Winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • White 6×6” 300gsm base card
  • Pink heavyweight paper
  • Digital image
  • Chameleon pens
  • Die cut snowflakes
  • Snowflake aperture die
  • Text background stamp
  • Distress oxide ink
  • Gems

For this card I stamped the text background stamp onto the base card. I also cut a piece of pink paper to mat onto the base card, and out of this I cut a snowflake aperture. Once I had coloured the digital image with Chameleon pens I cut the deer out. I’ve also distressed the pink paper with text and distress oxide ink to give more of a focus to that panel.

Thank you for stopping by, please leave a comment. X

Sparkly penguins!

Christmas isn’t far away now, and I know some of you will be thinking enough already, but actually I feel that after everything everyone has been through it will be nice if we can have a normal Christmas this year.

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #617 is ADU and the theme is Christmas. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

This is more of a contemporary Christmas card with the bright coloured hats and scarves and the dotty base card. I coloured this image with some coloured pencils this time as not everyone has fancy pens or watercolours so now and again it’s nice to show different colouring mediums.

The snow effect was achieved with some fake snow and also some glitter glue so there is some texture as well as sparkle.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • Grey and white polka dot 300gsm A4 sheet folded to make a base card and cut to size
  • All Dressed Up (ADU) penguins digital image
  • Colouring pencils
  • Iridescent glitter glue
  • Fake snow
  • Tacky glue
  • Black card as a mat, slightly larger than the focal image
  • Christmas Wishes sentiment

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

CRAFT challenge #601

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is for an easel card and our sponsor this week is ADU.

I chose this cute image and used coloured pencils to colour it. I then decided to frame the image with a CCW die which I’ve not used yet. It’s a really lovely sized die which frames the image well and is shown off well with the deep red card complimenting the red in the flowers.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries, so let’s see what you can do!

CRAFT challenge #585 – Love/Valentines

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for one week and the theme for this challenge is Love/Valentines. The sponsors for this challenge are All Dressed Up.

This gorgeous girl is coloured with Chameleon pens (NU1, PK2, NU00, NG4, PK3, GR1, NU2, BR1, WG3) and Nuvo pen 487. I felt the sentiment stamp “all you need is love” summed up the love/Valentine theme for this challenge. I rounded the corners of my topper and inked it in a toning colour, rounded the corners of the silver mat and mounted it onto a floral card to set off the flowers in her hair.

Let’s see what creations you come up with – there are always some fabulous ideas out there. Good luck!

CRAFT challenge #578 – Winter

This weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on and our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up. These challenges keep you going when you have a lot on yor mind. Crafting can absorb you and help with mindfulness. So let’s see what Winter themed projects to can come up with this week.

CRAFT challenge #569 – Wedding Anniversary

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

This digital image made me smile. It makes me think that some people are made to be together and work together. These love birds certainly seem to be working together.

I’ve coloured this image with Chameleon pens and then added a stamped sentiment and stamped corner flourish. I cut the topper to fit onto a scalloped DL card blank and rounded the corners. With the mauve chameleon pen I edged the topper to give it a little bit of definition.

I hope that you like this pretty card, and I hope the special couple like it too.

CRAFT challenge #561 – Shabby Chic

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

I loved this typewriter when I saw it, so I was really pleased to work with it. The typewriter image has been coloured with Chameleon pens, I’ve made the flowers to tone in with everything and added some leaves and the lacey background.

I hope you like my card and that you come and join the challenge.
