Get Well Soon Little Fella..

It's shaped cards over at the challenge at Sasayaki Glitter this week and I have done a simple Hexagon card created from the beautiful Tattered Lace Hexagon dies that match the dragon box I made a while ago..This sad little Fella has been in the wars and looks so sad but cute,I have coloured him in using Polychromos Pencils, onto Neenah card. And I have used a deep blue card as the mount card and for the base of the easel section of the card too.I have also used some pretty aqua card and some aqua dot card for the layering between the dark blue ,and to build up the base slightly to help give it a bit more support for the top section of the card to sit on,Thes are from my own dwindling at last stash ..I have used the layers as decoration ,keeping it on the simple side as it is more for a little boy ,and boys are boys ,they like a hug and kiss off Mum as a perfect child then go on a one man demolition team through the house lol..Can you tel I have a son lol !..I have used 3D glue gel to add the top layer on the top of the card and to tilt the Get Well Soon tag too, Don't forget judge it then glue it before checking or else it can get stuck solid or you get the glue all over the base of the top ,not pretty..Yep! I have done both of these tricks so don't you..Thank you for popping by :)xx

Morgans Artworld Saturday Inspiration Tag

For todays inspiration I have created a tag using my new set of Crea Lies  Crea-Nest-Lies Extreme Tag dies no 3..Been wanting these for a while so treated myself,must say did not take much twisting my arm lol!..I firstly printed the image onto Neenah card then drew around where the first tag was going,as this was going to over hangthe die size I had to cut this by hand,but first I coloured her in with Polychromos Pencils.. I then cut a layer with Gold coloured Centura Pearl,then a pretty glitter paper from First Editions ,a pad called Love Letters..I stack that onto more gold to make it pop as it looked a little lost but I had to hand cut some of this shape around the top as it was done free hand one paper was on the card ,so sorry if not perfect..The back layer is cream Centura Pearl which was chosen as its a good stiff card and supports the project beautifully...To finish I cut some pretty little cloude from CC Diesire dies called Head in the clouds and addec them to the project then popped a hand made bow in a glittery red/gold ribbon..Thank you for visiting and please pop over and see some of the lovely projects the creative team have done :)xx

I Love You..Knitty Kitty Birthday Card

Well It is a good job I had printed this one out..I dont know how many of you card makers find you get suprise Birthays you forgot!..This was the worst it was my Fella's  UMMM!! was I embarrassed or what ..Sat up all night colouring this for him lol!..but he loved it ,Saved myself Phew!!.. 
I have coloured this lovely image in with Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card..I then mounted it onto first craft card,then blue glitter then cradt again to frame it ,set it aside to dry..The backing papers are from a pad I brought from Hobycraft ,it was one of their own make ones ,not sure if they still do it ..The front has gone so I cannot name the pad but the papers are really thick and were Beautiful colourful  patterns ,now only have the last few left ..So just because it has their name on it dont be put off it was a lot cheaper than all the big named ones too.I mounted everything onto craft card .
I chose the pinky red for the main background as its a non descriptive pattern suitable for male or female ,the pretty raindrops papers I used as the stripes across were from the reverse of the papers ,so I only used two 12x12 sheets for this card which was good ..It is a very bright fun card and I think it suits both sexes but it said what I wanted lol specially as it was by the skin of my teeth lol !
Thank You for popping by :) xx

613 Avenue Create DT Card

I know I have said it a few times this year ,but I think this is one of my favourites yet this year..She is an AlicaBel digi Stamp and I have coloured her in using my favourites Polychromos Pencils,onto Neenah card..The little bird is my addition as some of you know I can draw a little and as this times challenge is.. Anything goes with a Bird in hand , I forgot the bird when choosing lol..So here is my take the little blue bird so that is NOT with the stamp ok...The papers I have used are from a supermarket called Lidle here in the UK these are the very last few I have I think and as it was late I did not want to disturb any one going into the bedroom at four in the morning and these were handy ..Puppy Dixie gets excited and tends to bark ..I am in a flat lol..You know how it goes lol..I mounted them onto craft card ,and chose this layout as although the paper is extremely beautiful it would have overwhelmed the image ,so I have used the plainer paper to high light her and I think it worked perfectly as she now pops of the card.I drew around the first layer of die to cut her out then cut the craft card a size bigger to mat on the machine ,this way I have her extending over onto the surround..I used Tattered Lace Basic Fancy Rectangles..For the branches and the flowers I used a Crafter's Companion die from the Kimono range of dies, this ties in perfect with the backing papers too .. I cut the flowers from the off cuts of the backing papers ..as they are encapsulated in glitter they look really pretty ..Thank you for visiting Hugs xx

With Love ..Sasayaki Glitter DT card

This is such a pretty image ..I have coloured it with Prismacolor Pencils on Neenah card..I have not used any papers on this one as I wanted it clean and simple ,showing only the pretty image and the delicate lace detail of the Tattered Lace dies that I have used to make this card..Rightly it should have been one of those cards that shut in on itself ..a Bi -folding card and the Dies were designed for that ,but also like any die that you buy you can play with them and come up with something quite different yourself.. I used the measurements on the back of the die packet and cut the height of the card needed to accommodate the die, but kept the length of the A4 card ..I cut the green card ,much more like a grass green in real time..with the outer die to give the shape of the card,then cut the two lace sections in an off white card. I them mounted and layered the topper so I had an idea of the bends I needed and worked them out evenly from the center point ,then scored on the scoreboard for a nice crisp fold.. I added SN Sparkle pens in Clear to the White lace on the edges of the card and,Glued on the topper and added on some tiny sweet like beads in the shape of flowers to the grass area ,then added a hand written sentiment to finish ..This was fun to make ,not as quick as I thought but fiddly and I don't know about you sometimes you just feel like doing something a bit different ..Enjoy your crafting :)xx

Flower Power Daffy ... Digital Delights by Louby Lou Dt Card

I have used the pretty Flower Power Daffy for this project and have coloured her in with Prisma Color Pencils onto Neenah card..I then fussy cut her out by hand and gently shaped her to make her more 3D.. I used the Blossoming Digital Paper pack too for this  also on the link below and I cut them and mounted them onto Purple card from my stash..I added two types of lace onto the green layer and then glued this down then popped a double bow onto it..I used 3D glue gel to add the little girl and added some small mulberry roses in a clump in the middle of the ribbon to make them look like those tiny multi petaled violets..I have no yellow card or Daffodil dies unfortunately but this is in the spring theme too..To finish i added a few tiny sparkling acrylic flowers across the bottom of the lace,on the top left hand and on the edge of the sentiment and stuck that on ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

All Dressed Up Wedding Card

Hiya ,todays card is a lovely image from All Dressed Up..I have only used part of the image as although the card was for a friend to give to her Cousin and they were more modern ,the image has the girl in a shorter dress and i thought it would be nice this way..I have enclosed it in a heart and used it as the centerpiece of the card and kept the main design fairly simple..I have coloured the image in with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card and I cut it out using the Dotted Tattered Lace Dies..I then mounted it onto Silver mirror card  to give it impact,cut in a larger version of the same die..The papers are from the new Polkadoodles Winnie Sugar Sprinkles..I love Nicki's beautiful papers and they were just perfect for a summer wedding too..These were mounted onto Mirror card and I applied lace to the green layer and added some pretty sparkly hearts along the bottom to finish the detail and popped on the personalised sentiment ..Thank You for popping by :) xx

Morgans Art World Saturday Inspiration Project

Hiya ,its my Inspiration Saturday time again..Well today's project is definately an outside of the box for me ..I had chosen the beautiful image and coloured her on Neenah card with Polychromos pencils already waiting.. I had gone into my local Hobbycraft shop and saw these lovely slate hearts..Always fancied doing a bit of mixed media this is what I came up with this...Firstly I cut two hearts ,one in green card and one in Silver I added the Silver to the slate with 3D glue gel and a Tattered Lace panel die cut  ..I then added Faber Castell Metallic sticks to the green to give both texture and a different look, this was glued off set over the silver heart.I then added some Gauze and some pretty lace , followed by the topper which I had fussy cut out previously.I then added the decorative lace flower and lace Butterfly ..I just felt it was still lacking something so I rubbed some more of the Metallic Gel Sticks around the edge to finish..it is hard doing something different but I actually loved doing this so who knows ,maybe more like this to come ..Thank you for visiting :)xx

Sasayakai Glitter Easter DT Card

My Second card for this team..Its for an Easter challenge ,however to be honest in my kit I just have not catered for Easter as now I am older now and all the family have left home its in my heart but not a big money spend thing..I chose this bunny as I loved him ,and I have coloured him on Neenah card using my old faithful Polychromos Pencils.I then mounted him onto craft card,lemon spot paper and more craft card..All the papers used on this card I have used from a cd that I had through the post box this morning ..I am tickled pink as it catered for easter too lol..They are from the Latest Polkadoodles.. Winnie Sugar Sprinkles by Nikky Hall ..saved the day I tell you..I mounted everything onto craft card and added all as shown onto a 7x7 card blank..I was thinking as I was colouring the Bunny how it would also make a really nice babies card too ..Who knows ..Thank You for popping by :)xx

New Release Bon Voyage Britt ,,Digital Delights by Louby Lou

WOW this was so much fun to do ..I coloured the little girl ..Bon Voyage Britt up with Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card..I then cut her out and sat her on the self until I was ready,truth is I had not a clue what to do then it happens my head starts whirling around and the magic begins.. I used a Digital overlay for the background as I did not want it too fussy as I did know I wanted a Map on it..Then I mounted it onto Black card,The map cut out the same thing,one paper was stuck down I used 3D glue to add the map ,slightly bent the little figure and positioned her ..Then cut out all the small travel labels also adding with the 3D glue..It has given it movement all over ,but what is a travel card without some little feet lol..good old Pitt Pen and a sort of Railway track..good job I was running late or there could have been bears ,trees and mountains on it too..Like those maps I used to make with my younger Brother when we were kids lol..It is such a fun little image as are all of Digital Delights lovely creations by the lovely Louby Lou..Sometimes its just nice to steer away from normal card construction and have loads of fun ..Thanks for popping by :) xx

Special Wedding Anniversary card.. Knitty Kitty Digi Stamps

Hiya,todays card I have done with these lovely Kitties..I wanted to do something special and different for this card as most cards for the 60th are mainly white..who says it cannot be fun.. I have coloured the image in using Polychromos Pencils on Neenah card,I then mounted it first onto craft ,then pink ,then craft card to give a bit of depth and make it look more special.The Papers for the background I got from CC Paintbox Poppets CD as I had nothing suitable in pads..It is very pretty as are a lot of the papers on the disc,There is also another Paper too  ,but you can only just see it popping up from behind the topper..All the backing papers are mounted onto craft card..This helps to strengthen the card and also makes it look finished..The two die cuts from either side of the topper are from Tattered lace Centerfold Dies that have only recently come out with embossing folders to match,but I did not use the folders on this card.  I fussy cut around them to give an edge.I rather like the pink and craft card together looks pretty.. As you all know you look at the die and think what you can do with it rather than just use it for one job ..lol hence mine are one the edges of the topper .The Flowers are from CC Sara Davis's Signature range and these I have cut in cream Centura Pearl..Love Flowers cut in this ,they give off a lovely glow once they have been shaped in all the colour range,and they keep their shape even when sitting for a while too .. Because its a special Anniversary I placed tiny Auoraborialis Crystals into the centers of the flowers as their centers and into the stars and into the girl kitties heart charm too ,then added the Sentiments to finish ..Thank you for popping by and if you get a chance please pop by the shop on Etsyfor look for her on facebook and she some of the lovely cards that can be made using these new stamps.She is a Newbie on the stamp scene and needs a little love sending her way  :) xx
