Barbecue Bear

We have a new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Designs and the theme is Make it Masculine.  I used this adorable image – Barbecue Bear – available here – on my card.

We look forward to bbqing as much as possible in the summer – but so far our weather has been disappointing – just hoping for better soon..!!

I coloured the image with Promarkers, placed it on a wall background paper and added a computer generated sentiment.

We hope you will join in this challenge at Di’s Digi Designs where you could win some of Di’s gorgeous images.

Birthday Sparkle

I love this All Dressed Up image – Season to Sparkle – and I’ve used it on a card for a friend’s special birthday.   I coloured the image with Promarkers, glittered the wings with Stickles Star Dust and cut around it with a Polkadoodles Fanciful Circle die.   I added some more Star Dust, Frantage and a few embossed stars.  The sentiments are from Winnie Celebrations 1.

Cosy Pink Pram

I had so much fun making this baby card.  I used the gorgeous digi – Cosy Pram from LOTV –  coloured the image with Promarkers and die cut it with a Pearl Rectangle die.  The small sentiment tags and circular sentiment from LOTV are embossed, and the block sentiment is computer generated.  The lace and flowers were from the Ribbon Girl and the foliage was die cut and sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.

Little Butterfly Girl

This image – Little Butterfly Girl, from All Dressed Up – caught my eye as soon as I saw it for the first time.  I coloured it with Promarkers, cut around three sides with a square stitched die and cut the fourth side with an envelope edger die.  The wings and petticoat are glittered with Stickles Star Dust.   I used a blue and pink patterned paper and a plain blue paper – distressed at the edges.  The butterfly spray is die cut, the tiny butterflies are from the same die and the flowers are from my stash.

Winnie Windswept

I made this birthday card for my oldest friend – who is also the person who encouraged me to start making cards several years ago.  She’s received it now, so I’m able to post it on my blog.  I’ve had the image – Winnie Windswept – from Polkadoodles, for quite some time but this is the first time I’ve used it.  I coloured Winnie with Promarkers and cut around her with a stitched circle die.  The pink chicken wire, the leaves and the sentiment banners are die cut and the flowers were from the Ribbon Girl.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Flowers or Ribbon and Why ( I prefer to add flowers as they give more depth and can be  positioned in various ways – ribbon is usually just a straight line.  I use a selection of flowers and also several flower dies so can tone or match the flowers to the theme colour.)         https://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/04/favourite-flowers-or-ribbon-and-why.html
