White with a Hint

Anyway as always for you it’s anything goes for us we have a theme this week
For our challenge it was white with a hint don’t know if my brain took the hint about the HINT as there seems to be more colour than I realised eeeekkkk that’s what happens when you get carried away

My card is 8x8 and I have use papers and image from the Winnie White Christmas. The colouring is done a little differently for me trying to leave white space so just colouring the shadows 

To decorate I die cut the word Christmas out a few time in Kraft then in white and glued together but off set ot add shadow details then made the poinsettia and coloured with brushos (I love these my best buy at Doncaster )

Anyway there you have it hope you like it and I  will see you soon with another make
Have a fab weekend and if you’re going to the NEC HAVE FUN!!!!!!

Special Birthday wishes for a special friend

Hello my crafty friends I hope you’re all well.fty friends I hope you’re all well.
I have to tell you I have been sitting on my hands with this cards so not to show you too soon I have been itching to share it with you but couldn’t as the recipient’s birthday is today!!!!
So Happy Birthday to a very special friend Sandra  65 today (she’ll kill me I know hahah) we have been friends now for nearly 10 years we met online through our blogs then we started to email each other and our friendship progressed from there. We call each other regularly and I go up to see her when our hubby’s footie teams are playing against each other.
So of course I couldn’t share the card on here until I knew she had opened it and ad today is her birthday tah dahh I can now show you

So for this card I have tried to make it more mixed media style and I also made a matching canvas (getting good ain’t I lol)
All the papers and images used are from Polkadoodles Belle papillon and so are the butterflies and flowers (even the one I made were made using the pares from the set.

I added lots of other bits from my stash (key, frames corners etc) and coloured with distress sprays and inks and also starlight acrylics .

The insert was made was made using the papers and one of the images then I added a verse to finish it off.

The canvas was made the same way as card using gesso to cover then texture paste and inks .
Hope you like it and I will see you soon

Anything but a card

Hello  I’m back today with DT inspiration for you for the new challenge over at polkadoodles the challenges for you guys are always anything goes but for us we are give a theme to go by and this fortnight we have been asked to make something Autumn or winter but NOT  a card  (Yikes lol)

So what do I create? Well I decided to create a Christmas ornament. It was very simple to make just die cut about 12-16 circles from some Christmas papers I used paper from the Festive Christmas collection then scored down the centre and folded in half I took one of the pre coloured images from Winnies White Christmas and printed her off twice with the papers one flipped over so it was opposite to the first so I could add it back to back. I then got some cord and added this to the back of the image before gluing together then I added the circles,
To finish off I added a large red Christmas bell to the bottom and there you are.
Hope you like it

Pocket full of love

Hello my sweets I hope you’re all well and keeping warm. Wasn’t that such a weird sky we had the other day with that pink orange sun.
So today I have a card tp share that I posted a quick pic of last night. It’s using the, oh soooooooo adorable January this time using pocket of love and have teamed her up with papers from the Ula collection.

I distressed the edges of the papers and then added to the card , I also printed out a couple of extra sheets so I could make some rolled roses (I did have a die that did that for me but didn’t find it until after I had finished Typical)

I made the flowers (also using papers from the Ula collection) then added some flat backed pearls to the centres .
The Image I have coloured with a mix of Polychromo ,Prisma, and some Lyra.ythe mounted onto card with 3D tape then added the roses to finish the card

Hope you like it and I will see you very soon with another make.

New release Heart on your sleeve January

Squeallllllll So Phil takes me to Doncaster yesterday to the Dame for the Stamp Magic fair. I spent a fortune, had a catch up with the lovely #Tracy Easson, then came home feeling very chuffed with myself about my new goodies but felling very worse for wear on the ear side of things. I’m really struggling again today in so much pain but hey ho I will go to these places x

So when I got home Nikky (#polkadoodlescraft) asked if any of us DT girls were sick of Christmas makes yet I said yes (even though I have hardly started to get any done) so she sent us some images and eeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk I know I say it all the time but OMG they are the best. I do love images with big eyes that you can colour and bring to life they just make the image and January has the biggest soft eyes.
So to me she screamed out Mixed media so after a short gloat of my new stash I started to colour her in.

Then I got to work on the canvas giving a quick coat of gesso and crackle paste.
I added texture paste (homemade) to some of the new stencils I got from Tim Holtz and paperartsy  then added starlight paint distress stains and Brushos (never used before but LOVE them)

I used some scrabble letter tabs to spell the word heart distressed a little the added a painted mdf heart with some threads
I fussy cut the image out and added to the finished canvas  
Hope you like it and I will see you soon with more January makes
