Phantasi 7

We have another new challenge starting today at Fab’n Funky – it’s a Bingo theme chosen by our lovely teamie Buffy.

You can choose any line – horizontal, vertical or diagonal – but please say which one you have chosen.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Digi Stamps for Joy

with a great prize for the lucky winner
Digi Stamps for Joy very generously gave the Design Team images to play with, and I used Phantasi 7 – available here.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics and fussy cut around it.  I put the image onto a mix of yellow and black circles and added flowers and die cut leaves.  The black pearls are from my stash.

Bunnys Egg Hunt

I know it’s a good few weeks till Easter – but one of my sons is coming to France during his little girl’s midterm holiday so they can go skiing.  Then they will come and stay with us for a few days – so I thought I would make my granddaughter’s birthday and Easter cards, so my son can take them back with him.  Sienna loves the Di’s Digi mice so I’m sure she’ll love these bunnies too…!!

I used Bunnys Egg Hunt – from Di’s Digis Designs – for this card and I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, and cut around the image with a square stitched die.  The papers, distressed at the edges, are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut a frame from the pink paper with a square stitched die and offset it with the image on top.  The butterfly dies are from First Editions, distressed with 2 colours of ink and the gems for the trails are from my stash. The lace is also from my stash and the rose is from the Ribbon Girl.

I like this image so much I think I’ll use it again for my youngest granddaughter  – although I have a few weeks before I need to post her card.

As You Like it Challenge – Do You Prefer Ribbon or Lace – and Why.  (I use both ribbon and lace on my cards – sometimes together and at times just one of them.  I find it hard to get the right colour of ribbon – so I have to say I prefer lace, as white lace always looks good on a card and adds a pretty touch)                                                                                                                            http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.fr/2017/02/do-you-prefer-ribbon-or-lace-and-why.html    

 

Kitty’s Cup Cake Tower

I saw this cute image – Kitty’s Cup Cake Tower – at Di’s Digi Designs, and thought I would make a Valentine card with it.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, and cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut into single words, with the edges distressed, and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.  The hearts embossing folder is from Design Objectives, the small hearts are from the Heart Banner and the corner is a Heart Ribbon Corner – both from La La Land.

Winter Window

Can you believe we’re into February now – and as it’s Wednesday there is new challenge starting over at Fab’n Funky, where Monika has chosen the theme – Birds.  Please use a bird image or use feathers (die cut, faux etc) on your creation.

We have a different sort of prize this time – it’s a selection of Christmas dies – but you can see all the details about this – as well as some fantastic inspiration from my team mates – on the Fab’n Funky blog.  We hope you will play along with us in this challenge.

I think this could be a first for me – but I made my card using a pre-coloured image from Polkadoodles Festive Christmas download.  I printed off the window image, and 2 robins which were included on the download.  I added Aleene’s Glitter Snow and Glamour Dust to the window, fussy cut around the extra robins and put them on it.  I distressed some of the stonework around the window with Tea Rose DI and added the window image to a paper from the same download.  The snowflakes are both Joy Crafts dies – glittered with Glamour Dust – the sentiment is a tag from LOTV and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Just to Say

As so often happens, my card started off completely differently…..  two of the papers were in at the beginning, but I changed another one – and now wish I’d kept it – and after colouring the image I changed that too – from one Winnie to another.  This Winnie is Make a List and I coloured her with Promarkers and Copics, and added some glitter to her hair slide.  I cut around the image with a stitched die – it was a square one but I made the image a rectangle with another cut.  The fancy edges and the die cut under the rose are from the Polkadoodles Ribbon Gift Frame and Corners set, and the notebook die is by Marianne Designs.  The tiny hearts are from a banner die.  The sentiment is computer generated and I die cut around this with a stitched rectangle I got from Amazon fr, which arrived in the post today –  after I had cut the image rectangle – if only I had waited..!!!  The tiny rose is from Ribbon Girl and the pearls are from my stash.

Apologies for the photo – it’s been raining all day, after several days of sunshine, and the light is poor so the colours aren’t great.  At least it’s much milder than it has been and that’s definitely a good thing..!!
