Super Boy

Hi all,

I hope you're enjoying the warm weather we're having at the moment.

Today I'm sharing with you a shaker card using

The dies are from MFT too.

I tried a new technique to make it by cutting
white foam rather than using tape.
It was a bit fiddly but I'm happy with how it turned out.

It was fun to make and I will try the technique again.


Scrappers Delights Challenge

Hi all,

Today I'm sharing with you  my Design Team card 
I've made for July's challenge

As always it's an Anything Goes theme
and there's bonus prizes if you use a 
Scrapper's Delights image.

So on to my card

I used the image Bee.
This image also comes with a rainbow but I wanted to use it
as it was using the flower to float down like an umbrella.

Copic Colours used:
Bee - Y06 Y18
Skin - E00 E04 E11 R20
Flower petals - R81 R83 R85
Stem - YG23

I hope to see you enter the challenge 


Jungle Palms

Well today is the day for the new progressive challenge
in the Scrappers Delights* group on Facebook.

The image is Jungle Palms 
which you can find here

So on to my card

I decided to make the palm trees the focal point
with the papers having a travel theme.

Copics used :
Palm Tree Leaves - G14 G17 G28 C7
Trunk - E23 E25 E29

Sand - E30 E31
Sky - BG0000

I put the sentiment inside the card which I think is perfect 
for this image

lots of inspiration for you using Scrapper's Delights images

Merging Stamps

Hi all,

Well today I'm sharing with you a card where I have merged three
images from Scrappers Delights.

I love these images individually but couldn't wait to try and put them altogether.
I think it's turned out quite a fun card.

Here's the card

Here is a close up of the image

The moon and sentiment is from Clearly besotted Out of this world
The heroes, you can find here.

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20
Girl hair - V09, RV17 (Go over the top of both with G29), 
 YR68 V04 (go over both with B29), YG07, BG49, B04, BG07

Clothing - BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07
             YG05, YG07, YG09, G05

I hope you have a go at merging digi stamps. Make sure you check with the designer that it's alright especially if you're using digi stamps from different companies.

Have fun colouring

Tiddly Inks with a bit of Lawn Fawn

Hi all,

Hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine.

An idea came to me for a card using two of my favourite

So if course I had to have a play to see
if I could put the two together.

Here is the card

Well I can say it was a success. I don't think I would have attempted 
this without a Misti because if I couldn't re stamp
I think I may have got a little frustrated.

The frame stamps are from Lawn Fawn and they are called Flirty Frames.

The girls are from Tiddly Inks.
The girl in the top frame is Wryn hanging around.
The Middle Image is Happy Mail.
The bottom frame image is Fairy Heartfelt.

All of these stamps come with extra bits that you can build
a scene with, so you can have lots of fun with them.

Sentiment is by Mama Elephant - Up and Away

I coloured the images using copics
Hair - E23, E25, E27 E29
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20
Top Frame Clothing - FYG2
Middle Frame Clothing - V12, V15, V17
Bottom Frame - Clothing - R81, R83, R85
- Wings - BG13,  BG15, BG49
Heart - R24, R27, R29

Why don't you try using different stamp sets together
to see what you can come up with.

I loved the technique so much I made another card but
I'll post that at a later date with a step by step tutori

Come back on Thursday where I have another card to share
with you where I've merged three digital stamps together.
Another fun technique.


No Lines

Hi all,

Well i have a fun technique to share with you today.
I have finally managed to do a no line technique using a digi stamp.
Thanks to Faye at StampinFluffnStuff for telling me how to do it.

Well lets get onto the cards and then the technique.

I've used the same image and the same colours for both.

First here is the image as you would receive 
all coloured in.

Here is a close up of the image

Here is the no lines card.

Here is a close up of the no lines.

So if you want to change your digi so you can try the no line technique.
First add your image/ resize it in a word document.
Then click on your image.
The picture tools/format should show.
You then click on recolor.
Then under the sub headings color modes and click on the third picture.
This will then fade out the black line great for no lines technique.
Another piece of advice Faye gave me was to have a black outlined version 
next to you so you have something to refer back to.

Materials used
Card and paper from my stash
Image - Lady Constance by Scrappers Delights
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20
Hair/ Eyes - E23, E25, E27, E29
Lips - R83, R85, R89
Dress - R81, R83, R85, R81
Clock - E19, E21

Why don't you have a go at this technique?
I'll be having another go using digis as I can see 
room for improvement.

Let it begin

Hi all,

I know I said my first post would be Thursday but I made
an extra card today.

So I thought I'd share it with you.

Here's the card

First I had to make the background.
I stamped the sky line from Scene stamp set.
I then masked the sky line and sprayed Dylusions ink spray
London Blue and Cherry Pie.
I then distressed it with Black Soot.
I made the stars using My Favourite things Star stencil 
and Hero Arts unicorn ink.

The heroes and sentiment are from Caped Cuties.
Copics I used
Bear / Rabbit - E41, E42, E43
Tortoise - YG03, G24, G28, 
Glider - C0, C1, C3, C5
                   R24, R27, R29, R89
Capes/ Masks - R24, R27, R29, R89

Well I hope you like the card and will have a go at the techniques
I've gone through.

Pop back Thursday for a no line colouring and a normal colouring so you can compare the two.
