Inspired by a film

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge I’m sure you can guess the film that inspired this card in seconds.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #632 is oddball Art Co. The theme this week is “Inspired by a film”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I coloured this image with pencils, not sure why but I’ve got a thing about pencils at the moment! I then die cut the image and a further layer using what I believe are crafters companion dies (though feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!) and mounted them onto some contrasting blue backing paper and glued the layers onto my base card.

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

  • Digital image
  • Backing paper from my stash
  • Colouring pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Dies
  • Card base – 300gsm

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

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.

Christmas

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #627 is The Paper Shelter and the theme is Christmas. 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:

  • Blue 300gsm base card made from an A4 sheet
  • Digital image
  • Stamped and die cut sentiment
  • Backing paper also from TPS
  • Snowflake die cut with pixie powders
  • Sequins
  • High tack glue

I printed the digital images onto some thin card and cut out the topper image. I also had a large doe cut snowflake which toned in with the colour palette so I added this in between the background layer and the topper.

To finish off I also added a few sequins to add some sparkle. It’s a great image and makes stunning quick cards.

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

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 15th February 2022

The sponsor for this challenge is Twinkle Lane Designs. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

The elephant has been coloured with an HB pencil and a paper stub and a pink coloured pencil. I die cut around the elephant and cut a mat in black so that it would stand out from the pink glittery background. Another mat and layer were also cut for the sentiment. As elephants are not supposed to forget I thought this would be a good sentiment to put on this card.

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • HB pencil
  • Paper stub
  • Pink glitter card
  • Black card to mat the topper image ans sentiment
  • Floral die cut x2 with distress oxide applied to it
  • Sentiment stamps
  • Black ink
  • Pink pencil crayon

As always, I hope that you like the card. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 21st September 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I created my card using the following:

Ike’s Art heart postbox digital image

A4 pink and white polka dot 300gsm card

Chameleon pens (RD4, NU1, PK3, PK2, PK4, VO2, PL5, RD2)

Distress oxide inks – Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry

Studio light ticket stamp and die set

Tattered lace starburst ovals

Leaf die

Fuchsia pink paper

Sparkly cream 240gsm card from pink frog

Gems

Paper trimmer

Anita tacky glue

The image I chose to use was this lovely postbox. With the hearts on it, it screamed anniversary to me and love, hence why I coloured it in red and pink Chameleon pens.

I recently picked up the ticket cutting die and decided that I wanted to team these up with the postbox image. I die cut 3 of these, created a background with some Victorian Velvet distress oxide ink then stamped with picked raspberry using some of the stamps from that set and others from another set. I mean it’s great to mix and match your stash isn’t it!

I cut out the starburst ovals but also kept the centre and used a pick up technique, with the distress oxide picked raspberry ink, to colour this mat. Next cutting out a few of the leaves too.

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

CRAFT challenge #571 – Shaped card/Anything goes

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Dr Digi House of Stamps.

I’ve used this image a couple of times before, it’s so versatile and I love it! It’s called “quackers”. I’ve water-coloured these lovely birds with distress inks and sat them on some die cut branches. So cute!

CRAFT challenge #561 – Shabby Chic

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.
