Hurrah – I finally had time at the weekend to play with my new Copics and I love them! I did have to add in the odd ProMarker so I clearly need to buy some more colours 😉
I used a lovely image from LOTV to experiment with and made it up into this card for the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge of ‘Spring colours.’ It is a bit of a late entry as the rubber stamp I wanted to use for the sentiment disintegrated as I stamped it so I had to rethink the arrangement of embellishments and it seemed to take me forever 😦
The stitching has been done by hand and the edges of DP have been inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. Oh, and look, there is my favourite die of the moment again!
Here is a close up of the sweet image;
DP: Pion Design (Fairytale of Spring)
Flowers: cut with Cricut (Lyrical Letters cartridge)
Border punch: Martha Stewart (the one I can’t remember the name of!)
Oh no, not more rain/snow again! I guess I will just have to stay inside and do some crafting 😉 Maybe I will even get a chance to have a proper go with my new Copics!
Anyway, I wanted to share my DT card for Totally Gorjuss and our theme for this week is ‘Something Borrowed’…hmm, thinking caps on for this one!
I was trying to make a piano themed card for someone and decided to ‘borrow’ some inspiration from Pinterest 🙂 Check out this fabulous 3D example here, which is where I got the basic piano shape from, although mine is a flat version.
This is the card lying flat;
Then the top part stands up with a little card prop;
Here you can see all the pretty embellishments including my new favourite leafy die;
DP: Maja Designs for the music paper
Flowers: Prima Country Elegance
Foliage: Memory Box Lavish Branch die
Tag: cut with Cricut (Lacy Labels cartridge)
Finally, don’t forget to stop by at Totally Gorjuss to see the lovely creations from the rest of the DT and I hope you can join in with our challenge for a chance to win some loveliness from our sponsor, The Ribbon Girl.
Today I have my DT card for Totally Gorjuss to share with you and the theme is ‘For Mum’ which of course ties in very neatly with Mothers’ Day tomorrow. This week we are sponsored by Crafters Companion so you will be spoilt for choice if you win!
I have used a new stamp from LOTV and isn’t this little bear a cutie?
Here is a close up of the image which I have coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and for once you can even see the Frosted Lace Stickles that I added to the flower centres !
DP: Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics
Label shape: cut with Cricut (Lacy Labels cartridge)
Our theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is ‘Happy’ and we have TWO lovely sponsors; The Ribbon Girl and Saturated Canary. It certainly made me very happy to get a free SC digi stamp to work with this week so thanks Krista 😀 I chose Cali Girl and some fresh yellow and blue DP to bring a little taste of the summer we will hopefully have this year!
So, why the post title? Well, I am on the edge of ProMarker cliff readying myself to jump off into the big wide Copic sea! I have been thinking about it for a while and my colouring of this image convinced me that I needed to try it so some Copics have been ordered; watch this space! Until then, here is the image coloured with ProMarkers/FlexMarkers;
The theme this week at Totally Gorjuss challenge is ‘Anything goes…with lace’ which is right up my street 🙂 I have used an old but fabulous stamp from LOTV and coloured it with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I added tiny spots of Frosted Lace Stickles to the bouquet wrapper but it is less sparkly than some Stickles so you can’t really see it unfortunately.
The theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is flowers and we have two lovely sponsors; The Ribbon Girl and Bugaboo. I have used this sweet image called Fancy SB Flowers from Bugaboo and as usual, it is coloured with Promarkers, the edges of the DP are inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, and the stitching was done by hand. I intended to add a sentiment but it just didn’t look right wherever I put it so I gave up and left it off!
I was asked to make a 70th birthday card for a colleague’s Dad who enjoys gardening. I had a few stamps in my collection that were possibilities but decided to buy a new digistamp instead from Just Inklined. I coloured it with ProMarkers and was particularly pleased with the how the wood effect on the wheelbarrow came out.
Here is a close up of the image;
I added a little tag behind the top panel for a message to be added;
