all dressed up - new releases

Hi everyone

It I once again new release time, and yet again Wendy hasn't let us down with these amazing images!

Aren't they just stunning!

Dreaming of summer

Future DJ

Looking good

Smile, it's your birthday

My image is another fab boys image called Future DJ.  as soon as I saw him I thought oranges and zingy colours.

I coloured him with promarkers  before matting and layering on some digi papers I brought from Esty.    I used strips of card and printed a sentiment onto it.  The records are free clip art images available from word.

Please check out the blog for more inspiration, keep an eye out as there will be new images each week!  While you're on there why not enter our latest blog challenge, and (or) our Facebook challenge for a chance to win some images.  Our only condition is the image must be an All Dressed up one.  If you don't have any but would love to win some, Wendy has even kindly given some Freebies (also found on the blog)

If you wish to purchase this (or any other All Dressed Up image) you can find them all here

See you all soon

Lily Wrynn - Birthday wishes

Hi everyone

I'm back again as promised with another card I made recently.

While I was away I kept an eye on Facebook and saw that Tiddly inks had released the cutest new digi stamps.  For those of you that follow me you'll know this is one of my favourite stamp brands so couldn't resist getting them.

It was my very best friends birthday while I was away, and I need to take her card and Disney inspired present around to her.  I thought I'd use Wrynn to make her card.

I printed her in very feint grey onto watercolour card and set it with some hairspray

I then painted her in a combination of distress inks and Sprectum noir watercolour pens.

I put the background together on Craft artist and fussy cut her put before mounting her onto the card front.

I hope you like her...

I'd like to enter her into:

New baby Card

Hello all.

I've just returned back from the most amazing holiday in Florida where we went to all the usual tourist attractions - I think I was more excited than Harrison!  It was to celebrate my 40th birthday which is looming next Thursday.  I dressed in Minnie mouse ears at Disney as well as Griffindor hats for the trip to universal, I couldn’t help getting into the magic of it all!!

 As for most of you, once the jet lag had worn off, my first evening was spent in my craft room…. I do miss it when I’m away!

 In this short time, I have made two very special cards, for some very special people.  The first one tonight is for an impending birth of a boy to my good friend Sarah.  She’s due any day so to prevent me having to rush one, I’ve made it in advance (I do hope the scan got the right sex!) The second I’ll post tomorrow.

 I delved into my ever expanding Lili of the Valley stamps for this little one called baby with teddy.

He was stamped with stazon ink and painted with distress inks.  The gingham and patterned papers are from a website now sadly closed called pink petticoat, all mounted onto craft card with flowers and lace from my stash.

The leaves are a Sue Wilson Die set coloured with pastel green promarkers for ease.  The sentiment is a ‘Simon says Stamp’ one that I just love!

The whole thing was mounted onto kraft card, with a tonic header die for interest behind.

Inside the sentiment is from Cuddly buddly.

April challenge - All Dressed Up!

Hello fellow bloggers

hope everyone is feeling Spring like!

We have another challenge starting over on our blog to win some of those Fabulous images (including the new releases!  if you haven't seen them, hop over and check out the DT inspiration and keep checking back too as they keep coming each week!)

My inspiration this time is made using the little darling rubber stamps designed by Wendy

.  I was lucky enough to be given one of these to play with and they are fabulous.

I used the smaller stamps to make the background, and stamped and coloured the main image.  All coloured with promarkers, and finished with a white gel pen.  I then cut out apertures in both the front image and a black card for matting underneath, along with a hole in the main card blank.  Inside the card I lined with matching pink spotty paper.  The flowers are from a magazine freebie that I coloured, cut and decoupage up.

I think she is a stunning image and I have used her on several birthday cards for friends and family.

Please stop by the blog and give our challenge a go - the only requirement is for you to use an All Dressed up image.  Why not check out our Facebook page too for another chance to enter and win.

The Fabulous Dressie DT have made their usually high standard of inspiration of you're a little stuck for ideas!

See you all soon
