Heartfelt Wishes

Hello my crafty friends!!!

Today little card with cute image from Everyday in Moonbeam Meadow stamp set (Crafter's Companion) - free gift from Quick Cards Made Easy (one of issues from 2015).


I asked my son which papers he would like on this card and above you can see result of these consultations :)

For layering I used purple pearl cardstock and 2 patterned papers: one with purple and ochre accents and other with creamy turquoise floral patterns.

Also decided to add some sparkling :) Bit of cream/gold twine and die-cut butterfly with touch of glitter glue.

What do you think about this little project?

A Birdie Note and Geordie :)

Hello crafty friends!!!

I'm not sure how many of you knows where I'm actually living... So..

Since almost 13 years I'm living in Geordieland :) For your information: Northeast of England, not too far from Newcastle upon Tyne, precisely in beautiful Northumberland county.

When people hear Geordies talking, they're often making huge mistake to call chaps from here: Scottish or Irish. Geordies are proud and friendly people and Geordie is a very interesting dialect, you can read about it a lot on internet.

My friend from London was happy when told him, I'm coming to England, but was petrified when found out I'm going to Newcastle... He said: They're not speak English!!! 

Honestly I was surprised, how he could say: English people who are not speak English??? My shock came when I landed here :) But I'm used to of it now and I'm happy to call this place my home. I have lots of friends here and this card I made for them as kinda: Thank Yee Aal! card.


For this project I used image called: A Birdie Note from Art by Barb - if you are interested in colouring challenges with her beautiful images, check: https://www.facebook.com/groups/artbybarb/.

I decided to make my card: green, clean and simple with only one patterned paper, then I put sentiment together with my Trodat Printy :)


For all who wants to know what this sentiment means, here's translation:
'Singing for you Darling!'

 Want to know more Geordie words? 

Check: http://www.englandsnortheast.co.uk/GeordieDictionary.html, on this page you can also find lots of interesting information about Northeast of England, history, festivals, towns and cities, places to visit etc.

That's all for today!!!

Ahoy mate!

Hiya crafty friends!!!

Today - pirate card with cute image from LOTV called: Walk the plank.


I choose 3 patterned papers for this project. All papers I layered on navy blue cardstock. Also coloured image I layered on the same cardstock.

I was thinking hard what kind of sentiment to use on it and then one thought struck me: 'I have Trodat Printy, why not use it to make my own sentiment?'

And.. that's what I did :) Made my own sentiment :)

What do you think about my new card? Like it?

Birthday dragon 😊

Hello my crafty friends!!!

Today little DT card with cute image created by Conie Fong called: Tori the Dragon - Up.

I decided to make this project in shades of green with just few splashes of other colours.



I wanted to give my card some extra texture, so I used some digital papers along with handmade papers (with lots of fibers), paper doily to soften even more its look and piece of ribbon.

Both image and sentiment I distressed with scissors and shaded with pencils. 

Hope you like this card.

Summer birthday

Hello my crafty friends!!! Hope you have brilliant week 😊.

Today Summery birthday card for sea theme and mermaids lovers.

I am blue addict and Summer for me is connected with sea and beach and... stop 😊, to the point woman!

My today's little project is blue/turquoise CAS card with gorgeous mermaid image from Saturated Canary.


I decided to be minimalistic when colouring my mermaid and used only two colours: olive and spring bud (Artist's Loft pencils). I layered image on piece of turquoise cardstock. 

For this card I used 2 patterned papers from Crelando paper pack called 'Summer' (in the UK you could find it in Lidl shops).

As kinda colouristic accent is added piece of bright dotted orange ribbon.

To finish my card I added nice sentiment from free gift stamp set 'Mermaid Wishes' from latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

What do you think about this card?

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes twist of Monochrome

Dom's crafty mojo

We can say my boy was busy crafting lately. Birthday card for school mate, Thank You cards for teachers, card for girl friend 😊.

'Snorkeling' from Sasayaki Glitter is one of his fave images - card for his friend Skylar 😊.


Dom picked papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft issue 171 free gift for this card - I think card looks great, but I'm his mum so... you know ;)

Cute lion on the boat I found on pinterest.


Beautifully coloured landed on birthday card for Aiden. Dom had no problems with choosing papers for this one whatsoever 😊.

Funny birdie from Kajsans was his choice for card for one of his teachers Mrs M. who helped him a lot this year.


Dom picked blue and yellow combo for this card :)

I love birdies from Kajsans :) If you want to know more about them check: http://kajsansscrapblog.blogspot.co.uk/.

When I asked Dom what image he wants to colour for Miss B., his answer was fast: doggie. So.. here you have doggie card (image found on pinterest).


Dom wanted doggie in two colours, so I explained him he can use marker in few places on the image and left rest uncoloured, he also added some random letters on tag.

 Dom decided he wants to use floral punches on it (Tracy thanks a lot for your this great gift), so I helped him with it. Choosing papers was easy for this one too 😊.

Sometimes he is soo in rush that papers are 'all over the place', but I love his cards and I'm pretty sure Dom will make many more in future (he coloured 'Walk the Plank' from LOTV already).

What do you think about his cards?

Till next post crafty friends!

Superhero!

Definitely time to catch up :)

Why superhero today? Because I should show you this card last week!!! Bad girl me :)

Today's card was made last week for Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter. We all worked with funny image called: Superhero TV.

Superhero TV??? - You could ask.. Oh yeah :)

My son pinched first print outs, so I have to print more :)

You saw already his colouring of this brill image in one of previous posts, so..

Time to show you my card :)



I decided to make proper man's card - silver blue combo. 
My problem was... yeah, sentiment!

My man watched me digging through my stamp boxes and he asked what I'm looking for. When I told him, he said that: Watch me now! could be perfect. 

Fact - perfect, but... I have no stamp like this..

A thought struck me: I have nice black pen, so... 

Result you see now on card above :)

Summer Ladies

Today I have three cards for you instead of usual one. Why?

Beautiful new release at Conie Fong Art & Design :)

I tried my hardest to make all three cards different, so... different colour scheme, different layout on each of them.

Meet Summer Bride




I decided to make this card in pink/white colour combo to have a chance to use pale pink handmade paper I found hidden deep in my stash :) 
So... simple card design, only 3 layers of paper, piece of ribbon, image and sentiment distressed and shaded on edges with pencils plus bit of glitter glue.
This card turned out sooo delicate in look, exactly as I wanted.

Meet Summer Blossom



Plan for this card was: I want it look kinda shaby chic/vintage, so...
Here we have turquoise, beige, olive and gold. I used 3 patterned papers, piece of ribbon and twine bow for nice feminine finish.
Total fave of my man :)

Meet Summer Dreams



For this sweet image I choose silver/blue colour combo. I coloured image with 2 shades of blue and silver and decided to be rather minimalistic if I can say that :) I choose 2 papers: bold light blue and kinda steel blue floral paper, layered them on silver mirri card, image and sentiment I shaded with pencils and also layered on silver mirri. To balance whole design I add piece of white lace on the bottom of the card.

What do you think about images? 
Like them? 
Want all of them? 

Hope you like my newest creations :)

Christmas in June???

Hands up if you are not thinking or already making Christmas cards my dear crafting friends!

I do think and also make :)

Today my first Christmas card this year with cute image created by Conie Fong.

Meet Snowy!!!



For today's project I choose shades of blue and silver on the image and in papers.

I coloured Snowy with pencils, shaded edges with blue pencil and layered on silver mirri card and add dash of glitter glue on corners. Patterned papers (2 different shades of blue) and sentiment I also layered on silver mirri card. For finishing touches I add bit of glitter glue on stars on sentiment and placed double bow (white/light blue) near Snowy.

Olimpic Challenge at The Wonderful World of Alicia Bel

This month challenge at Alicia's FB group gave me some thinking, really...

Normally we have 2 stamps to choose between, this time.. total freestyle if I can use that term :) We can use any of Alicia's digis basically.

I was browsing Alicia's digis few times before I decided which of them I want add to my digi collection and which of them I'll use on my new card (check Alicia's shop here:
 https://www.aliciabel.com/index.php).

After days of thinking I choose image called: Feather Fans (link here: https://www.aliciabel.com/index.php?id_product=3&controller=product&id_lang=1).


Simple colouring with pink and lavender pencils on fans plus green eyes and brown hair for this little sexy girl, 3 patterned papers in matching colours, all layered on gold mirri card plus few yuta flowers with gold gems, piece of rustic style ribbon and twine bow for finishing touch.

I like how this card turned out :)

What do you think about my newest creation?

 http://www.kennykstamps.com/.

Today's project - not only for metal music fans :)


Image I choose today is called simply: Metal babe.
On my card I decided to use few layers of distressed square paper pieces with blue and red patterns. Image and sentiment edges I distressed and lightly shaded with pencils.
For extra touch I added splashes of glitter glue on my Babe hair, guitar and jewellery ;)

Hope you like it :)

ATC? What is it?

Few days ago I heard about ATC cards... I was like: What is it? Kind of card? But... What exactly?

If you never heard about them, here you can find some info:  https://www.strathmoreartist.com/cards-atc.html.

What I love about this cards? Answer: you can use anything you have (eg. scraps papers), any technique (eg. mixed media) you wish to make miniature masterpiece - really!

Only rule: size - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Rest depends from your creativity, your imagination :)

I have lots of scraps, so I thought: Why not try? Results? Check below :)


'Butterflies' - my first ATC :) 

I used scrap of green paper which was used for die-cutting butterfies before. I decided to cut this piece to ATC card size, then stamped sentiment on it and placed on piece of white cardstock scrap which I shaded with pencils and stamped in green with little butterflies. To finish my little card I used some glitter glue here and there and added die-cut butterfly, which I shaded with pencils and glittered a bit.


'Birthday' - one more try with ATC. 

Glittery, pinky grey little piece with sweet image called : Bella with gift from Conie Fong Art and Design (you can find this cutie here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/525401205/digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp-bella?ref=shop_home_active_12).
To be honest with you I was thinking few good weeks what to do with this image as I coloured and cut it out few months ago... She is perfect birthday girl :) And here I found idea and solution for my crafty dilemma :) I shaded piece of white card with lavender pencil and stamped it with 'happy birthday' sentiment, then added piece of torn patterned paper, scrap of white ribbon and prepared image. To finish it I used bit of glitter glue to give it a little sparkle :)

I love ATC cards me :) I saw some proper masterpieces on net - just check Pinterest or Google it - you'll be surprised!

Hope you like my attempts :)

Cards with cute lizards :)

Cute lizards? - you could ask... Oh yes my friends - cute lizards!

If you are with me for little bit, you saw my cards with images created by Naz from Sasayaki Glitter, so...

Today I have for you card which I made for June Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki's FB group with image called: Dancing Lizards. You can find this image here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/520186476/image-61-dancing-lizards-by-sasayaki?ref=shop_home_active_12


I decided to make simple grey/pink Anniversary card today with only one patterned paper. For layering I used silver mirri card. Image and sentiment I distressed with scissors and shaded lightly with pink pencil, added bow from pink organza ribbon and few lavender gems.

Below my son's creation :)


He decided to join me today :)
As you can see, Dom decided use only one patterned paper for his card, for extra touch he choose piece of pink organza ribbon and some gems in pink and green.

Summer card for boy

Who said cards for boys cannot be cute or colourful?

Honestly lots of cards I saw for men or boys are kinda boring, mostly monochromatic in blue or green or brown, only kiddy cards have more colours if you know what I want to say by that.

I have 2 guys at home, my man and our son and cards for them never were monochromatic, I'm always trying to mix colours on them, yes... true , I'm using blue, but also purple, red, yellow, green :)

Today, birthday boy card with cute image called Birthday Benny created by Connie Fong.



Fact I used blue again on my card :) But... decided to play a bit with papers and colours. Only one patterned paper is mainly blue (we  an say baby blue ). All layers I distressed with scissors.

For contrast I stamped sentiment on piece of bright yellow paper, added few yellow gems and little bow from twine.

What do you think about this card?

One more card for you to see today :) 

My son decided join me when I was colouring Benny yesterday and he made a card for his friend's birthday.


He loves bright coloured papers :)

What do you think about his card?

Smile

Life can be 'so not beautiful' like one of characters in my fave game is saying from time to time...

I'm bit sad lately as my next door neighbour's husband is not in good health... we are all hoping here he will be better soon... so my card making kind of stuck.. I wasn't colouring as much as before, just didn't feel like..

..but I decided to make a card with image I found and bought few days ago...


Meet Bubbles - cutie created by Dina Gerner from Digi Doodle Studios.
Like her? Check Dina's etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/digidoodlestudios?ref=l2-shopheader-name, she has lots of sweet images there :)

I coloured this cutie-pie with pencils, used simple layout with Summer coloured papers and added some wooden flowers in my little project as you can see.
Sentiment is from Inkadinkado clear stamps set, I shaded it lightly with yellow pencil.

Hope she made you smile a bit.

Dragonfly

Today I'll show you rather simple layout inspired by card I saw few weeks ago on Pinterest.

In my opinion - nice, clean and beautiful in its simplicity.

For this little project I used one of my fave images from Ching Chou Kuik called: Meet Dragonfly which you can find here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/196478837/meet-dragonfly-digital-stamp-instant?ref=shop_home_active_23

All I needed for today's card was: coloured image, 2 pieces of patterned paper and piece of ribbon.


Image coloured with pencils, colours used: yellow green, emerald green, light blue, ocean blue, red-brown, 2 shades of orange, gold and violet. I partially cut out the image before I place it on my card with foam tape. 

Beauty of this layout is in all possible changes/additions you can make in it, only limit is your own imagination.
You can add flowers,  bows, butterflies, gems, change position of second layer, rotate whole layout if to think about few ideas for using this card as a sketch.

What else you can do with this layout?
Write your ideas in comments please 😊.

That's all for today friends!

Pearls

Ladies always loved pearls... that's what I think :) Are you agree with this?

Pearls are soooo vintage :)

So... maybe late, but I finally find a time to colour and make a card with great image called: 'Vintage Tea Cups' from We Are 3 (you can find their digi stamps and papers here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WeAre3/items).

As a vintage stuff for me is visually connected with old sepia photographs for colouring I choose brown, gold and yellow pencils.

I found some sepia/vintage looking papers in my stash, some ribbons, creamy wooden flower and here you are - my new card!


What do you think? Looks ok?

But...

That's not all I wanted to show you today :) My little boy decided just few minutes before leaving home for school, that he wants to colour this image too and look at this:


Beautiful, isn't it?

Till next post friends!

Monday, 5 June 2017

For boys?

I'm bad... really. Most cards I am making is for girls.. so now something for boys 😊.

Cute image I'm using today was created by Wendy Burns from AllDressedUpStamps, link to her etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/alldressedupstamps?ref=l2-shopheader-name.

Image is simply called Dino and if you like it, check: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/250804701/dino?ref=shop_home_active_11

I decided to make 2 CAS cards, with not too many layers and huge amounts of extra embellishments, in kind of typical boyish colours.

So... here blue dino


on card with mix of purple and blue patterned papers with some gems.

And here green one


on card with cheerfully coloured papers also with few gems.

Both images are coloured and their edges are lightly shaded with pencils.

My boy loves 'diamond' shapes on cards, what about you?

That's all for now friends!

Summer colours

New month and new challenge at Conie Fong Art & Design FB group :)

Theme: SUMMER COLOURS

My today's card is challenge/inspiration card. Believe it or not finding perfect colour scheme wasn't easy cause I'm trying my hardest to not use all the time the same colour palette on my little projects.

This time I was between pastel/vintage/shabby chic and bold/bright...

For my card I decided to use gorgeous image called Leilani, here link to this beauty in Conie's shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/267535503/digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp?ref=shop_home_active_44.


For my card I used 2 patterned papers from LOTV (NitWit) in soft pink/green combo layered on bold light green cardstock, image and sentiment I shaded lightly with green pencil and place them on card on foam pads.

I also added piece of white lace on right side of smaller panel, green bow on left top corner of my card and as extra touch few purple gems on right top and bottom corners.

What do you think about this card?

Fairy...

This cute pie was waiting a bit to be placed on card, so.. today 'Lil Bookworm Fairy' created by Ching Chou Kuik.



I decided to use rather pastel colours on it, soft beige, light blue, gold, bit of red, orange, yellow and olive.
I distressed edges of all layers with scissors and added nice piece of twine with gold thread to make a bow.

We can say kind of rustic look.

For this card I decided to use 2 patterned floral papers with piece of bold bright orange paper between them to coordinate them with colours I used on image.

For sentiment I used clear stamp from AppleBlossom Design. Both image and sentiment I distressed with scissors and shaded with orange pencil.

Cute mice

Mice?! Cute?! - someone could ask. Oh yes 😊.

Today I am showing you MICE 😊.

Did you saw Crafter's Companion mice images? 

My little project for today - card with beautiful stamp from their set 'With love' which is part of Everyday in Moonbeam Meadows. 


Image coloured with pencils as usual 😊.

For this card I used 3 patterned papers, nice deep red ribbon, red gems and nice sentiment from Apple Blossom Designs stamp set called: The Hummingbird Designer Collection (free gift from crafty magazine).

I shaded image edges with blue pencil, I also used bit of pencil shading on sentiment (blue on bottom, yellow on top). If you like this wording - check clear stamps from Inkadinkado.

Feeling Fabulous

Card making is great hobby, something I love to do when have bit of spare time. Something what is giving me a chance to feel bit like an artist :)

Today I want to show you card with cute image created by Conie Fong called: Feeling Fabulous.

This time I went in reds, blues and lavender :)



For my card I use 2 patterned papers, smaller piece I layered on piece of white cardstock. All layers I distressed with scissors and additionally I shaded image and sentiment with light blue pencil.

For extra touches I added light blue ribbon with floral motif, blue gems and bit of glitter glue on roses' petals.

That's all for today friends :)

Hedgehog :)

Hedgehogs are cute, aren't they?

Did you ever saw hedgehogs on stamp sets created by Penny Black? I'm lucky to have 2 sets (want more! ).


We met this cutie pie during one of our trips to Brocksbushes Farm for strawberry picking :)

Below my latest card - CAS in green (shame photo is sooo dark...).


I used image and sentiment from Penny Black's set called The Touch of Love.

I decided to use only 2 patterned papers for this little project. Image, sentiment and lighter paper I shaded with green pencil on edges. I added few green gems and ribbon for finishing touch.

I checked my stash for some nice papers, cut them, stick them with double sided type and..

Here you go!

Hairdresser or make up?

Very important question for girls isn't it?

We had to answer it when choosing image for new challenge at Alicia Bel's FB group.

I'm not a make up girl - had this done properly only once in my life  (years ago for prom ball 😊).

So for my card I choose stamp with hairdresser 😊.  Cute image - really.

Decided to play with pinks again as I want to give this card to my next door neighbour for her birthday 😊.

I was thinking hard about papers cause needed rather strong colours, combination which give a chance for Alicia's image to kind of 'walk out' from card, be seen...


You can find this image here:https://www.aliciabel.com/index.php.

Chosen papers I layered on silver mirri card and placed on card base in rather simple layout.
I cut out coloured with pencils image and layered it on pink cardstock and then on silver mirri. To place image on card I used foam pads to lift it up a bit. Also decided to use glitter glue on this little cutie to make her more shiny 😊.

My sentiment (created by Simonne Clay for Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine) I cut in banner shape, shaded with pink pencil and layered on silver miri, also added bit of glitter glue on.

Hope Sarah (my neighbour) will like her Birthday card :)

Beauties of the Sea

Oh yes my friends! Mermaids again!

Why? May Challenge at Ching Chou Kuik's Facebook group :).

Believe it or not, for this challenge we have plenty of beautiful images to choose from! Just check mermaid section in Ching's etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/gjzcck?section_id=15928892.


I wanted my mermaid to have this kind of vintage look, more sea like coloured... hope I successed :)



I used 3 patterned papers in bluish/creamy/beige/brown colour combo. All three pieces I distressed with scissors and inked edges with brown ink.
I coloured my mermaid with pencils - used: gold, olive, ivory, spring bud, emerald green, golden yellow, light brown, yellow clay and yellow green. I also distressed image with scissors and inked it.

To be honest with you I'm not using laces in my cards often, but this time I decided that combo of white lace and two tone beige ribbon will work nicely on my new project - right side of card.

My sentiment (from Sweet Dixie) I placed of bottom left corner, then add 3 green gems on left top corner.

And what do you think about my Beauty of the Sea?

Till next post friends!!!
