Rosebud Bear

We have a new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Designs and the theme is – Use Glitter, Glitter Glue or Liquid Pearls.  I used this adorable image – Rosebud  Bear – available here – on my card.

                                              

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Stickles Crystal to the rosebuds and parcel ribbon and Stickles Star Dust to the bee trail and its wings.  I cut out the image using a square stitched die and an envelope edger die.  The flower is die cut, the pearl is from my stash and the sentiment, from LOTV is die cut.

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

Underwater Diver

I made this birthday card for one of our grandsons.  Over the years I’ve made him several football cards so I wanted something a bit different.  The diver and seaweed images came free with a magazine, the angel fish are from Clip Art and I coloured them all with Promarkers and fussy cut around them.  The sentiment is a die cut and the small green gems are from my stash.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite His or Hers (and why)  ( I have quite a few male family cards to make, so I’m getting happier making them, although I enjoy using girly embellies.  This card was fun to make and I even got a few gems on it – for bubbles..!! )   https://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/05/favourite-his-or-hers-and-why.html

Jasmine Laptop

I used Jasmine Laptop, from LOTV,  to make this card for the 11th birthday of one of our granddaughters – I’ve often seen her watch videos like this, when she has been staying with us.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a die cut heart banner, some die cut hearts and some pearls.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is from Winnie Celebrations.

Sprinkling Fairy Dust

I made this card using several Lavinia stamps.  I haven’t done much stamping for quite a while – as I’ve been using digis mainly – but I decided to get some of Lavinia’s fairy and foliage rubber stamps – and I’m hooked on them now.  I made the background with Distress Inks and stamped Fairy Dust Silhouette and several Fairy Orchids onto it.  The dragon was a present from a very kind friend – she went to a stamping show and knew I was envious, as we don’t have anything like that in France – so she got him for me.  I was really surprised when he arrived in the post – and so pleased…!!

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.
