Love is in the air

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #652 is All Dressed Up (ADU). The theme this week is “Anniversary/Wedding”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I created a background on the base card just using gesso and on top of this added a backing paper which was again blue, but not what you would imagine of a sky. Under the hot air balloon I added some silver thread as well as every cloud has a silver lining.

The hot air balloon was coloured with pencils, but in vibrant colours, and I fussy cut it out so that it was floating in the sky.

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

  • Digital image from ADU
  • Pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Card base – 300gsm
  • Gesso
  • Silver thread
  • Blue patterned background paper

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!
