Warming Up

Our new challenge at Fab’n Funky is Kids and Teenager Birthdays.  We are sponsored by LOTV and it’s their 13th birthday today.


It’s so exciting for them as they are now a teenager, and at Fab’n Funky we’re excited too – as we’re doing sneak peaks of some of their new images which will be released on 20th May.

LOTV gave the Design Team some of their new images to play with, and this is my card using a sneak peak of Warming Up.  Isn’t she delightful – just perfect for any little Birthday Girl.

Warming Up

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics and cut around it with a Spellbinders Curved Rectangle die.  The heart die at the side is from Doohickey dies.   I distressed the edges of the papers and added flowers from the Ribbon Girl and ribbon from my stash.  The sentiments are from LOTV –  embossed with white embossing powder.

Take a look at the Fab’n Funky blog where you’ll see more sneak peaks of some of the gorgeous stamps LOTV have lined up for you in their next release.

Fairy Swing

I decided to get away from my favourite pink – but as you can see I didn’t get very far from it.  The background colour is different for me – so I guess that’s a start.  The image is Fairy Swing from All Dressed Up, and I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and cut around it with an oval die.  The outer ring was cut with fancy scissors and distressed with Peacock Feathers DI.  I love these web dies from Joanna Sheen and I glittered them with Stickles Crystal.  The tiny butterflies were cut with a punch and embossed, as were the fern dies.  The flowers are from the Ribbon Girl, and the heart charm and the pearls are from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Mice with Bees

I hope everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend – it’s been like winter here, with frost on the ground for the past 3 days, but the sun is shining again and it’s warm enough to work in the garden this afternoon.

The image on my card is Bee Mine Mice from Di’s Digi designs, which I coloured with Promarkers, and I cut around this with a stitched square die.  I cut a larger stitched frame in pink and sprayed it with Spray and Sparkle.  The ribbon, pearls and small bee charm are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  The web and flowers are cut with dies from Joanna Sheen – the web is embossed with glitter powder and the flowers are sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.

Jingle All the Way

We’re coming to the end of April and so our challenge at Fab’n Funky this week is Christmas – hosted by our lovely teamie, Lucy.  Our fantastic sponsor is Dr Digi – with a prize of 2 digis for the lucky winner.

Dr Digi gave the Design Team their choice of images to play with and I’ve used Simply Santa, available here.

Jingle All the Way

I coloured Santa with Promarkers, fussy cut around him and placed him on a stitched circle of snowflake embossed card.  The icicles are a Joanna Sheen die – I used a double row for more depth – and the snowflakes are Toga dies – all glittered with Glamour Dust.  The sentiment is from DSB, the ribbon and gems are from my stash and the little bells are from The Ribbon Girl.

You can see some great inspiration from my team mates on the Fab’n Funky blog, and we hope you will join in our challenge this week.  Another Christmas card – or the first one this year – will help make life less stressful in December…Lol!!

I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter – with plenty of chocolate to enjoy…!!

I thought it was time I inked up some of my older stamps, and this is Amy from Wee Stamps.  I coloured her with Promarkers and Copics and cut around the image with a Crealies Scalloped Oval.  I cut a second oval and sprayed this with Spray and Sparkle.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the lace and flowers are from the Ribbon Girl.  My printer has been playing up lately, and you can see it’s leaving lines down the paper – I got a new printer, but it’s not printing the papers in the same shades as before…   I need to experiment  – but in the meantime I used this faulty paper as it’s a much nicer pink.  Maybe no one would have noticed the lines and I shouldn’t have mentioned it…Lol!!
