Mariah - Make it Crafty

Hi everyone,

Its been a little busy here its our daughter's birthday on the 31st Aug, Fathers Day on the 1st Sept (omg haven't made the card yet!) Make it Crafty has a DT call so I am going to enter her birthday card, I love Zoe's images and have been using them for a while now..

This is Mariah from Make it Crafty digi stamps, as my daughter loves blue and Paris Iv'e used Cafe de Paris also from Mic. The card stock is American Crafts, DP is Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics, the Post Card is from Pink Gem designs Digi stamp and a doily. 
I've used Copic markers to colour Mariah and the Cafe. I love butterflies so this has Tim Holtz On the Edge 'Butterflight' which I have cut from white card stock and DT papers, the Eiffel tower and Poodle are from Cottage Cutz and a Magnolia Tag with flower & Rose ribbon is from Paper2, the pearl strip and flat-back pearls from my stash. I succumbed and used Shabby White Frantage (I love it) and lots of Ranger Star Dust stickles, oops the ribbon bow is from my stash as well.  I hope Karen (daughter) doesn't check out my blog until she has her card tomorrow lol.

A close up of Mariah and Cafe de Paris.

I am going to enter this in the Make it Crafty DT Call.

Until next time, happy crafting..

Peggy - Clean & Simple

Hi everyone,

Its a little dull here in Melbourne today but good for crafting LOL.

I have made a card for my niece in the UK and thought I might share it with you,

I've used Peggy (she's so cute) in lemon yellow, I love using Copic markers, I chose pale blue for her basket of flowers & bows on her shoes, the card stock is Kaiser with lemon pearl card (my stash) for the lovely Spellbinders die frame, flowers from Paper2, the centre rose is coloured with copic B02. She has lots of Ranger Star Dust stickles and this time I've used some Stampendous Shabby White Frantage, the sentiment is from Scrapmatts with a ribbon bow from my stash.

Wyanet (Beautiful)

Hi everyone,

I hope that you are all well and still enjoying the sun, we had some sunshine in Melbourne today but its still chilly!

After playing with my new Olympus camera (oh my gosh its sooo different from my old Olympus) I've figured it out enough to get a better shot of my cards now!! 

I have a new card featuring the lovely Wyanet (Beautiful) Whimsy/Wee stamp.

I've used browns and reds to really make Wyanet shine (I love the little outcrop she is sitting on) I have coloured her with Copic markers on X-press it card. The card stock is Kaiser and the chevron stripe too, I thought it complimented the Bo-Bunny's Zoology nicely to make a lovely Tepee.  

I have used Silk lace from Stableford Importers (got it at the last Craft Fair I went to) also some lovely bright yellow daisies from Paper2 with quilled centres (made by me) to contrast with the daisies, raffia paper tie, Spellbinders dies, a feather that I coloured with Copics to match the red orange theme and last but not least - Ranger Star Dust and Platinum Stickles. 
Oops nearly forgot the sentiment from Scrapmatts.

A little side view of the Tepee with just a glimpse of the inside of the card.

Black and White

Hi everyone,

Its been a little chilly and wet so far this week, I hope that where ever you are it is nice weather.

I have an unsual card that I thought you might like to see, there is a brilliant Challenge on 
Magnolia Down Under, its Black & White, not a colour combination that I find easy to do but I do like a challenge ha, ha!

 "Santa on Christmas Eve"

I thought it might be different to 'dress' Santa in a grey suit with a red sack instead of the other way round, I have set santa in a Forest of La La Land trees edged with silver versa color ink, along with a La La Land heart fence, Memory box Bianca Snowflake (which is gorgeous) also Magnolia Doohickey's Snowflake. I did cut an Icicle Border from Cottage Cutz for the top of the card but it disapeared under snowflakes (it must have snowed hard when my back was turned) there is another one inside though as you can see below...

There is a rather gorgeous Post Card to Santa that I found in the Pink Gem Design site whilst looking through their Christmas section - I was sooo pleased to find it, it will get used an awful lot with the run up to Christmas LOL.

I did try to stay true to the black and white theme but its a little tricky, I had to have some red somewhere, and just a little black ribbon bow from my stash.  I wanted more white than black so I've used pearl strips on the fence and icicle on the inside of the card and not to forget lots and lots of Ranger Star Dust Stickles - along with some Kaiser craft flowers, 

I just love glitter as you can see from the close up of Santa!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
