Super Babe

The day we came home from our holiday one of my sons mailed to say his friend’s wife had had a baby boy.  I knew she was having a baby in September, and I did have a girl card “in stock” – but since the new baby was a boy I had to make a new card.  I used a Little Miss Muffet digi – Babe Superstar – and coloured it with Promarkers.  I cut another large star – from the same digi – coloured it with a tea green Promarker and sprayed it with Spray and Sparkle.  The edge of the circle was embossed with silver embossing powder, as was the sentiment from LOTV.   I distressed the edges of both papers and sprayed the inside one with Spray and Sparkle.  The gems, pram charm and twine are from my stash.

For Someone Special

It’s several weeks since I’ve made a card as we’ve been away in our caravan.  We had fantastic weather while we were in the south – but it’s rained every day since we came home – not what I need, with so much holiday washing to get dry.

I don’t often use red on my cards – as my printer makes my papers more orange than red.  I wanted to enter the LOTV Facebook Challenge so I distressed the edges of the red (orange ) paper with fired brick DI.  I used the LOTV digi image – For Someone Special – coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and added liquid pearls and Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.  I sprayed the green paper with Spray and Sparkle and distressed the edges of both papers.  The snowflake and trees die cuts were glittered, but unfortunately none of the sparkle has shown up well in my photo, and the ribbon is from my stash.

Little Mermaid

I’m posting this card which my granddaughter, Sienna, made when she stayed with us for her May midterm holiday.  She made 5 cards that week – so I think it’s true to say she’s addicted to card making…!!!  Sienna loves swimming and we did quite a bit of that too, and as she has a fascination for mermaids I bought this digi for her to use.  I’d made a Z fold card just before she came and that design appealed to her.  She coloured the image with Copics, stamped and glittered the seaweed and put faces on the stars, as we didn’t have any starfish dies.  The anchor and shells came from my stash.

When I saw the children’s challenge at A Gem of a Challenge I knew Sienna would like to enter it.                                                                                                                                                                 https://pinkgemchallengeblog.blogspot.fr/2017/07/a-gem-of-challenge-childrens-special.html

Little Christmas Deer

It’s still wet and at times it seems more like Autumn than summer – but since I can’t work in the garden I’ve made another Christmas card.

I love this cute Christmas Deer from All Dressed Up, and I coloured it with Copics and Promarkers.  I cut the bottom off the blue DP, embossed it with a stars embossing folder and sprayed that piece with Spray and Sparkle.  I distressed all the papers’ edges and embossed the edge of the deer oval with gold embossing powder.  The sentiment tags are from LOTV, and the stars are the waste from the Starry Night Edger Signature die – all embossed with gold.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Pass the Parcel

It’s been so wet and miserable this past week, so I’ve managed to make another Christmas card, and this time I’ve used one of Di’s Digi stamps – Pass the Parcel Mice.  I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and cut around the image with a Holly Ring die from Yvonne Creations, the edge of which I sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  The edges of the papers are distressed and the die cuts are glittered with Imagination Crafts Detail Sparkle.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment tags are from LOTV.
