Sunflowers for Hedgie

We have a new challenge starting today at Di’s Digi Designs and the theme is – Include the Sun.  I used this adorable image – Sunflowers for Hedgie – available  here – on my card.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and die cut it with a Pearl Rectangle die.  The sun, grass and fence are die cut, and the sentiment is computer generated.

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

Fairies on the Bridge

This is another card using Lavinia stamps.  I love making the distressed backgrounds too, but eventually I decided I couldn’t have my hands looking like they were going mouldy all the time, so I bought some of the fine rubber gloves we used when we were working on the house, and they have helped a lot.  I took my inspiration from this month’s Lavinia challenge, which is – A Sprinkling of Fairy Dust – and I used the Fairy Foragers on the Fairy Bridge, and added Stickles Star Dust to the fairies’ wings, Stickles Diamond to the lamp and Stickles Crystal to the bridge.  I wish the photo showed this off well, as the green glitter looks lovely against the blue background.  I also used the Creeping Vine stamp along the top.

Fairies Playing

My Granddaughter, Sienna, who is 11, was staying with us for the Midterm holiday, and as usual she enjoyed making cards.  It’s the first time she has played with Distress Inks and she thought it was great fun.  She made several backgrounds in various colours and then stamped on them using Lavinia Stamps.  She used Fairy Foragers, Small Whimsical Whisps and the Single Fairy Orchid on this one.

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.
