Irish Kiss

Today I am sharing my latest project for Heartcraft Paper.  This image is not a new release but it is a newbie in the shop.  Kelly Freis!  I am not Irish myself (maybe a few generations back) but I did love colouring this one in.


I seem to be leaning towards colouring red heads.  I drew in the pupils and coloured the in the same colour as her dress.  The background is sponged with Squeezed lemonade oxide and mowed lawn oxide.  The bookmark die is an MFT one.  The ribbons were just ones I had on hand and they matched perfectly.  Now to find some recipients for these cuties.  

Thanks for looking!  Happy crafting.  

Long Hair, Don't Care

Hello and welcome to another great release from Kindred Stamps.

Today I am showcasing the set "Long Hair, Don't Care" and the digital tower image that you can purchase. Without further ado here are my creations!

All images of the castle were printed in grey rather than black so when I used my copics on top the lines kind of disappeared giving it the no line look.

In this first one I made the tower really big and cropped it so I only got a little more than the doorway on the card front.  It matches in with the size of the stamped images. 


Similar to the first one, I made the tower large and only used the bottom this time so the characters are on the ground next to it.  



This last one I printed it fully onto a whole piece of A4 cardstock and made a fold out card.  Just follow the pics to see how it opens. 





In this photo the horse and chameleon images fold out from behind the sentiment panel.  




I did do a sort of step by step of the colour of the castle and where to cut the full size sheet and score for the folds.  I may show that in a few days time.  But for now I hope you enjoyed the projects made for the set "Long Hair, Don't Care"

Sometimes No Words Are Needed

Hi all.
I am excited to share with you this card I made using the Galactic Adventures stamp set. 


I managed to get the faceted heart die and thought it would be perfect to use with these two characters. I  sponged the creases with ink that matched the card.   I did trim it down to stick it to the card front.  The stencil is one I spotted when I was in the shops one day, ( I don't get to go to physical craft shops much) but when I saw this stencil I knew what stamp set I was going to use with it.  First off I tried it on white card, and it just didn't look right.  Then I used my Oxide inks on the black card and it looked fab!!!  Just the look I was going for. 
Then it was just a matter of adhering everything together.  I chose not to add a sentiment as sometimes you don't need words.  And I think the heart is big enough to say everything that is needed. 
And a  little bonus the heart is hollow underneath so you can hide or add anything else you want.  Just like this cheeky furry character.  LOL


Thank you so much for checking out my project!  I hope you have a great crafty day!

Bunny Jellybean

Sharing today another great image from the Craftin Desert Diva's February release.  This image is Bunny Jellybean Work.  


Here in Australia we have a chocolate brand that uses similar colours to this.  So I had to use the for Easter.  
I printed the bunny image onto cardstock, and coloured using BV04 BV01 BV00 BV000 and  BV0000.  The green is YG25 and the sing is E81 and E83.  I ripped a piece of paper in  a line.  Then used it as a stencil to sponge inn the grass with Mowed Lawn  Oxide ink.  
I had printed out a few extra eggs from Easter image and coloured them, cut them out and added them to the card.  
The sentiment is just one I printed using the Word program.  
I am liking this colour combo more and more.  
Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the release!

And here is my project


This gorgeous girl is called Cupcake Avery .  Just for something a little different I went warm tones.  Something I don't do very often but I can see that I will use it more in the future.  And I love the red tones in her hair.  Plaits look sooo good.

Bunny Basket Scene

My share today is from Craftin Desert Diva's  February digital release.  
This image is Bunny Basket Scene.  


I done something a little different.  I made up some special little place cards for our Easter lunch.  I printed out the images and drew a rectangle around the images.  I used a pen knife to cut around the top of the head and ears so they popped up when creasing the mountain fold in.  I also trimmed around the flowers and egg on the right hand side to make it look like they are hanging off the edge.
Coloured all the images the same except for the ear bow.  We have 3 girls and 2 boys for the lunch so coloured the bows pink and blue respectively.  I also added a little bit of coloured card on the bottom to match said bows.  And to finish off a gem in the centre of each bow.

So you can use the images for anything, not just cards, and resize them to match your project.

Thanks for looking!  Happy crafting.

Easter Chick

Today I am sharing my latest project for the Heartcraft Paper's February Release.  This one is called Easter Chick.


I chose this image as I love to colour in weaved baskets.  They are very simple to colour and have that wow factor when done.  
I coloured the image up and trimmed it.  Then I hand drew in the sewn border. I printed the easter sentiment that comes with the image.  I trimmed it down to banner size and adhered with a foam mount tape.  I had a physical stamp of an easter egg so I randomly stamped the front of the card.  Randomly added some some enamel accents and sequins.  

Don't forget to check out the latest release and get ready early for Easter.  
Thanks for looking!
