Crafting Dom

Hiya my crafty friends!

Today few bits made by my 5yo.
Dom loves drawing, colouring and sticking things together.

In coming week he'll join after school Crafty Club :). Just cannot wait for his new masterpieces :).

Today we were on twins birthday party, Dom made cards for his friends.

This one for Aaron :

Beauty on the rock :)

Hello, hello my crafty friends!!!

Today - little DT card with Mermaid in rock from Kinda Cute by Patricia.

She's lovely creature to colour - you can stick with simple colouring or experiment - up to you!

I wanted my card simple, but with kinda texture,  depth...


So... I placed my mermaid bit behind the waves.


As she looks so nostalgic I decided to use 'Thinking of you' sentiment stamped on patterned paper I choose for basic layer.

What do you think about this card?

Minimalism

Hiya my crafty friends!

Minimalism is a funny thing. I love this style! Even made few jewellery pieces in this style while ago :)

Minimalism in my card making? Hmmm... very rarely I think.

So... today I have for you totally minimalistic Christmas card :)

Years ago friend gave me set of clear Christmas stamps and to be honest with you I used one of sentiments once or twice, but never images, and today this state of things changed :)


Isn't he cute?


Whole card in about 10 minutes :)

Two stamps, 2 pencils to colour image and voila!!!

Birthday party?

Hiya my crafty friends!

Today's card is my playing with alternative colouring of image suggested in free sepia class from Kit and Clowder  (addition to last year October class).

Finally I could make it properly 😊,  with my new pencils 😊.



Image created by Jade Dragonne called Champagne.

OK,  I decided to choose my own colours for her eyes 😊. Mix of mulberry with some blue shades gave very interesting result, very vibrant I can say 😊.

Mulberry with hot pink looks great on her dress and earrings 😊.  When colouring her hair I thought will be good add one more shade of French Grey and I did it 😊.

Then just choose 2 patterned papers with browns and greys, layered them on deep pink cardstock, added with and dark brown ribbon and... card done. 

What do you think about it?

Bears

Hello, hello my crafty Friends!

Today - bears 😊 and my newest DT project for Kinda Cute by Patricia.

I was sitting and thinking how to use all cute bears from a set Patricia has in her shop... one square card? Naaah!! These cutie pies asking for something else :)

So... instead of one card I made three 😊. Three ATC cards! Simply because I decided to use some scrap papers I found in my stash.





Colour combination used here: cream, gold and brown.

All three cards are made with cream cardstock, shaded with dark brown pencil with 'birthday' sentiments stamped all over with gold ink. Pieces of patterned paper, gold mirri card and chocolate brown ribbon added to give extra texture.

What do you think?

Papercraft Business Challenge DT Call

Hiya,

Today bit different post - my answer for DT call.

********************

My name's Monika and I'm crafting for about 10+ years now (cardmaking, jewellery making). Crafting is my hobby, but also something we can make together with my 5yo son. Was great to realized one day that I'm 'artistic soul' not only by admiring art, but also by being kinda part of it through colouring, sticking things together.

I love challenges and being part of Papercraft Business Challenge DT could be another step to playing more with papers, stamps, pencils etc. I am already in 2 DT teams and I love it.

Below, few of my cards:


Beautiful image called Free Spring from Ching Chou Kuik


Thankful Heart (freebie) from TiddlyInks


Gnomes from Enchanted Corner freebie set from Papercraft Essential magazine


Bella with gift from Conie Fong on one of my ATC cards


My first DT card for Kinda Cute by Patricia with image called Stork and Elephant.

You can find them all here in my blog.

*******************

If any of you my crafty friends are interested in this DT call, go here: https://papercraftchallenge.wordpress.com/ for more details.

That's all for today :)

Till next post!
