All dressed up March new release

Hello everyone

as its the 22nd its time for the second part of All dressed ups' new releases.

There are some gorgeous images for last minute Mothers Day cards, or Easter in general.  Here are the images and for my inspiration I used the one for little boys - its just perfect for Harrisons friend birthdays.

Pretty Bonnet
And here's my inspiration for you using clunk clunck

The nuts and bolts background is a stamp set by stampendous, I used grey ink on white copier paper for both the background and the inside of the card.

The image was coloured using promarkers and spectrum noir pencils. all finished with some die cut cogs coloured with promarkers to match the robot.

I hope you like him - I'm in love with this image its sooo cute! Please stop by over at our clog - our challenge is running until the 14th, and if you don't fancy the challenge, at least check out the DT's work - its incredible work!

All dressed up challenge 66

Hello everyone

Its the 15th so it must be once again time for a new challenge over at all dressed up.  As usual our theme is anything goes, as long as you use one of our images.  If you need some there are freebies on our blog here

This month I decided to dig deep and found some older images.  These sometimes collect dust, and I thought I'd use them to inspire you

Keeping with the recent spring theme on my blog - its a masculine card, but has some cute little critters on it.

Its a different shape for me - I brought these card blanks from a recent craft fair - and love them!

I used the froggie image, and coloured them with promarkers.  The sentiment I typed out and printed to add on.  Backing papers are once again from a Nitwit digi kit, left over from a project I made recently.  finished with brown matting and layering and a hexagon die to cut out the background.

I hope you like them - please check out our blog for some amazing inspiration from our other DT.  The challenge runs until 14th April.

Also checkout our Facebook page too, and there's also a challenge running there - use 1 of something, use 2 of something and use 3 of something... You can enter both to win some gorgeous images of your choice.

Good luck everyone we can't wait to see what you make.

Spring's almost here part 2

Hello everyone

Part 2 of my spring themed makes. As previously mentioned, I'm so glad the weather is starting to warm up and the gardens are coming back to life.  I always feel so much better in the sun! So inspired to make spring themed cards, this is part 2 of my latest makes

This time using a Hunkydory stamp set, and the nitwit digi papers again. I brought these from C&C in the last months bundle and just adore them.

There's a couple of variations I've made using similar techniques.  I went for CAS this time though.

No pastel colours this time though - nice bright zingy colours to chase away the rain!

Both were coloured with promarkers, and as I've said the papers were from a Nitwit digi collection, except the pink spotty card which was from Anne Marie designs.
I fussy cut out the stamped images, before adding them to my card with foam pads for dimension.

Springs almost here! part 1

Hello everyone

I'm so glad spring if finally around the corner, I love spring flowers, and my mini daffoldils are blooming all around my garden  - They are jst so pretty!

Its inspired me to make some spring cards or at least some card using spring colours.

My first one to share today is using a tiddly inks images.

I love the happy pinks, yellows and greens!

I coloured her with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.
The card blank is a tattered lace die, cut and layered with backing papers I printed from a nitwit digi kit, and finished with a scrap of ribbon from my box. (does everyone have a box full of bits, I wonder sometimes why I keep them all!)

I die cut a few flowers and finished them with pearls, as well as adding a few pearls down the side.

I hope you like her, I haven't added a sentiment as I don't know whether to use as a mothers day card, or a birthday card.
