Autumn girl

Hiya crafty friends!!!

Around start of this month I coloured cute image created by Julia Spiri with  girl sitting on a mushroom, just perfect for nice Autumn birthday card and today decided that is time to make one :)

I had some proper thinking about which papers should I use for this project and, believe it or not, I dig deep in my paper box :)

I choose 2 patterned papers and use the same layout as on my Christmas card with gnomes few posts ago: http://tobicards.blogspot.co.uk/2017/08/i-love-gnomes.html.



For finishing touches I distressed and shaded sentiment and added few gems to my card.

I want to enter this little project to:

and
September Challenge at: http://cck-digitalstamps-challenge.blogspot.co.uk.

Vampirella

Hello hello crafty friends!

Few posts ago I was showing you pics of my progress in colouring class I have from Kit and Clowder (http://www.kitandclowder.com/) since last year.

As for classes we don't have to use the same images as Alyce do, I printed out beauty called Vampirella created by Hannah Lynn.

Took me few days to finish whole image, but thanks to Alyce's class I learned few tricks and techniques 😊.

So here is my Vampirella coloured with Artist's Loft pencils plus Deep Fuchsia from Derwent ColourSoft with addition of tiny bit of silver glitter glue :)


You can find her in Hannah's shop as one of images in colouring book: http://www.hannahlynnart.com/store/p1028/PDF_Enchanted_Halloween_Coloring_Book--INSTANT_DOWNLOAD_.html

If you like images like this one definitely check Hannah's shop: http://www.hannahlynnart.com/, you'll find few nice freebies there too ;)

That's all for today!

Colouring class - October

Hiya Friends!!!

I have to tell you: I'm bad, lazy girl!! Really!

Why?

My man bought me a colouring monthly class at http://www.kitandclowder.com/. That was last year! Beautiful October class with Alyce Keegan (great teacher and owner of Kit and Clowder) colouring beautiful image created by Ching Chou Kuik ( her images you can find here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/gjzcck).

And?

I watched tutorial - partially - last year, even used some of techniques showed there in my colouring, but...

Never done this class properly!!! Shocking!!!

So...

This year, actually few days ago I decided to finally make it properly.

As I don't have in my files Ching's image which was used by Alyce, I choose to colour beautiful creation of Hannah Lynn ( check her stuff here: http://www.hannahlynnart.com/).

My progress so far:


Skin - 3 shades of green.


Eyes and lips - 2 shades of violet plus gold on jewellery.


Hair - black, lavender, yellow-green, gold.

Not sure yet what colours I use on her clothes, but I'm determined to finish this class :)

That's all for today peeps!

Till next post!

Girly and poshy 😉

Hiya crafty friends!

Today card with gorgeous freebie from All Dressed Up Stamps.

To be honest with you I coloured this beauty in mid of last week when sitting at Cafe with frappucino and piece of cake near me 😊. Serving girl asked me if I draw this beauty and I answered that I'm only colouring her as I'm not skilled enough to draw anything more then funny houses and trees 😊. 


As you see I decided to make 'tall' card in place of usual squarish one 😊. I choose 2 patterned papers with pink, both image and sentiment I shaded with fuchsia pencil.

Underneath image I added 2 pieces of white lace and for finishing touch decided to place 2 pale pink buttons on my card.

I want to entry this card to:
* challenge 40 at thecraftyaddicts.blogspot.co.uk 
and
* challenge #201 at http://avenue613.blogspot.co.uk.

That's all for today!

Welcome Baby

Hello, hello my crafty Friends!

Today my first DT card for Kinda Cute by Patricia and first for ages baby card 😊.

For my today's project I used cute image called Stork and Elephant.

I decided to print this image straight onto card base, colour it and add stamp with sentiment.

To be honest with you this is my second or maybe third card made this way.



Check also Patricia's shop for more (she also offer few free images if you are interested): https://kindacutebypatricia.com/.

When colouring my card I masked image and shaded upper part with blue pencil - also created little clouds there :). Bottom part I shaded with green pencil and then coloured rest of image. I made elephant's blanket lavender cause I thought this will be perfect for little girl.

Sorry for so dark photo, but weather here is 'funny' and all my pics are not bright enough even for my liking.

That's all for today!

Hope you like my little card.

Heart cupcake Marcia

Hello hello crafty friends!

Today's project will contain cute image called Heart Cupcake Marcia - La La Land freebie for Kit and Clowder 15k members party.

I coloured Marcia for Confidence challenge at K&C by finishing one of colouring classes.

Today finally found bit of time to place her on card 😊.


Before I placed her on my card I splashed her dress and shoes with bit of glitter glue and cut her our. As I made her dress green I decided that papers I use for this project will have no green on, only yellow, orange and shades of brown. I distressed them with scissors before stick them together.

To make card bit softer in look I cut out circle doily (Tonic Studios) and used it as kinda frame for Marcia.


Then added sentiment from Sweet Dixie set.

What do you think about this card?

Bella Rose

Hello, hello my crafty Friends!

Today I have for you card with newest image created by Conie Fong called Bella Rose.

I was thinking hard what colour scheme I should use for this beauty and decided make her kinda autumny with cream, gold, copper and brown.



To colour her I used my Artist's Loft pencils: ivory, gold, light brown, medium brown and dark brown. For bit of sparkle I added gold glitter glue on dress and roses.


As I wanted to give this card some textures I decided to mix handmade papers with designer papers and metallic, hammered copper cardstock. Copper paper I used for die cuts - leaves and heart, handmade papers I torn in squarish shape; designer paper, image and sentiment distressed with scissors. 
Image and sentiment I also shaded lightly with medium brown pencil.

For final touch I added bow made from golden ribbon and add bit of gold glitter glue on sentiment.

Hope you like my new card.

Hello, hello my crafty Friends!!!

Stone art

Hiya crafty friends!!

Today's post will be about... decorating stones with children :).

Idea came to me through FB group called Northumberland Rocks.

First you decorate pebbles, then you're hiding them somewhere to be found :).

So... today morning we picked some pebbles from our front garden with Dom and decorated them with paints, markers and glitter glue. Dom enjoyed whole process a lot :)

Results:


We were in local park to hide them plus to find artsy stones hidden by others from Northumberland Rocks group. We found few great ones!!!

Below our stone picture made on canvas with using sea glass, beach pebbles, shell and driftwood :)


I'm thinking about framing this one :)

That's all for today peeps!!!

Christmas cardmaking in full swing? No? Yes?

Wanted to check my new toy (Crelando paper cutter), given me by friend - thank you Tracey!

Base: white cardstock cut with Crelando toy 😊, shaded with emerald green pencil (Artist's Loft), added 2 pieces of Christmas patterned paper and piece of white ribbon.

Image I coloured with pencils, added bit of glitter glue, cut out and layered on gold mirri card and cut out again to make topper.

To finish my project I added snowflake charm, gold ribbon bow and sentiment cut out with my new cutter, shaded with green pencil with dots of gold glitter glue.

We're painting 🌻

Hello, hello!!!

I was bit busy lately my friends, trying to entertain children in school age is not easy as you already knows 😊.

So... we spent lots of time outside and all crafting had to go aside...

One day last week or maybe 2 weeks ago (not sure really now) I found cute small easel in one of shops and thought: This will be great for showing properly my cards.
It cost next to nothing and had little canvas added to it. I didn't have any specific idea what to do with canvas but...
After we back home my son decided he wants it, so..
I explained him that he needs his brush and paints and you know what? He smiled and said: I want it😊.

I placed piece of paper on his table, canvas on it, gave him brush, bit of water and his paints and results of this you can see below. He called it: Circlsies  (title inspiration from one of children's books we read 😁).



Around the same time I started colouring beautiful image created by Hannah Lynn - still have lots left 😊.


We were on few little trips. I bought few more canvas (bit bigger then this which Dom used), I was curious if he'll use them too. He did, but he prefers smaller scale 😊. My little minimalist 😊.
One of these canvas left, we tried to convince Dom to use it, but he wasn't interested, so I had a go 😊. Little landscape 😊.

I coloured her with my pencils ;) and then add some glitter glue on:


I die cut some butterflies from gold mirri card and bold lavender cardstock, stick the together and add splash of glitter on them too.


As you could see on first photo I used rather simple layout with one glittery patterned floral paper and piece of orange cardstock as layering for my image.

Edges of image, sentiment and orange layer piece I distressed with scissors and for final touch I added 2 green gems on sentiment piece.

Hope you like my challenge entry :)

Flower power

Hi crafty friends!!!

Today I have for you floral card. Bad girl me I'm very rarely using floral images on my creations.

Why?

Not confident enough with my flower/plants colouring... I know I need more practice and Alyce from Kit and Clowder is right about not comparing with others cause we all are on different colouring level, but...  eh that just me :)

For my today's project I choose image called Wild Roses from SheepSki Design. 




I decided to use simple layout, floral (with roses) paper from Crayola paper pad Nostalgia, bold lavender cardstock, piece of ribbon and few lavender gems.


I want to enter it to this month SheepSki Designs challenge called: Flower Power, details here: https://sheepski-designs-challenges.blogspot.co.uk/.

Die cuts challenge

New month - new challenge at Conie Fong Art & Design FB Group 😊.

This time: Die cut/s.

Hmmm I had bit of thinking before I start with this card. Why? My crafty stash is kinda limited from die cuts point of view 😊.

I'm blue girl, but from some strange reason lots of my cards is in pink and lavender 😊. This card too 😊.


Beautiful image called Butterfly Kisses created by Conie was just perfect to team up with Regal Circle Doily from Tonic Studios. You can find this beauty in here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/517084938/digital-stamp-digi-stamp-digistamp?ref=shop_home_active_16

From papers I used silver mirri card and piece of pinkish floral Hunkydory paper. Also added piece of white ribbon for extra texture.

And yes I was playing with glitter glue again  😁.

Mermaid and step panel card

Hi crafty friends!

Have to say I'm very rarely making other cards then square... Today's card is my first attempt with step panel fold.

For this card I used patterned papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine free gift and beautiful mermaid called Liliana created by Conie Fong



Easy tutorial for this kind of card I found in issue 168 of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.
I need to say I had fun with working on this card, to have all correct panels decorated and all properly stick together.


Glitter glue is my latest crazy addiction as you all can see :)

I wanted my card to be decorated with things which are screaming: SUMMERTIME!  - hope my embellishments choice is at least good :).


Little piece of blue sea glass and shell charm :) Plus few gems near sentiment.

I like how my card turned out. What do you think?

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?
