I must have Flowers

Morning - There is a new challenge starting at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Flowers. I have used this image called The Florist with a greeting from Dear Lizzy that says I must have flowers.
I recently had a big birthday and got lots of lovely flowers from friends. My favourite flowers are peonies and anmeonies.
I used paper from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Stay colourful collection and I used both sides of the sheet. I covered the join with lace and mounted everything on lilac satin board. I used flowers from The Ribbon Girl to make a bouquet and tied a small bow around it.

 I coloured the image with Copics and die cut the image with a My Favourite Things Square die.

I hope you like this card and will join in the with challenge at The Paper Shelter.
See you soon,

Melvin the mod

Morning All - Today I am sharing with you a card I made for Making Cards magazine using Melvin the Mod  from Dr Digi.
I had a big birthday this last week and the various celebrations have gone on all week so all my good intentions of having a brand new creation for you have gone a little wayward!!

Ingredients –
Paper – My Favourite things – Black & White basics
Lawn Fawn Large stitched circle dies.
American Crafts Thickers Letters
Craftworks card greeting panel.
Orange stickles
Silver & White pen
Blue, white & Red card / paper.

     I made a square card blank into a round base card by trimming off the corners. I used a Lawn Fawn die to cut the circles of different colour papers and glue onto the base card and covered the bottom section of the card with black and white patterned paper.
    I used these Promarkers for skin - Skin – Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
   And these Copics  -
Tyres & Shoes - C7, C5, C3 & Black
Jeans – B93, B95 & B97
Jacket – YG63, G85 & YG67
Bike – B000, B00 & BG01
Light – Y17, YR04 &YR07
     I Cut around Melvin and put 3D foam on the rear and place him on the base card off centre. I     added some details to metal of the bike with a silver pen and some highlights with a white pen and used some stickles to make the headlight shine.
     I used Amercian thickers to add the letter stickers to spell out a greeting and  mounted the greeting panel from Craftworks card onto black so it stands out, cut around and stick to your finished card with 3D Foam.

I  I hope you like my card and will join me back here on Wednesday when I have new cards to show you from The Paper Shelter.

Have A ball

 Morning  -  I made this card for my Brother in Laws birthday - They have three dogs so anything pooch themed is always good for him! This image is from Dr Digi and is called Graham and Grendel. 

I used paper and the greeting from Doodlebug Puppy Love collection and covered the card base. I used a stencil to act as an embossing folder for the paw prints which I then die cut with a  My Favourite things double stitched oval die.
I used Copics to colour the image.

Right thats all from me for today... I off out with the Girls for an early birthday lunch and cocktails ..
I will soon be 40!!! I really don't know where the last decade went!!
Have a lovely day,.

May New release images at All Dressed Up

Afternoon on this sunny Bank Holiday (a phrase that is not heard often enough!!)
And to make this day even better - there is a new release of four images at All Dressed Up and they are perfect for Fathers Day and for the schools breaking up for summer which is not that far away!!
I got to play with Daddys Day. Love this cute little bear. You can see all the new images here at the blog and you can see the inspiration from others on the Design Team. 

The papers are from Echo Park and cut with a Mama Elephant moutain die. I added the matching Enamel shapes from Doodlebug and fussy cut around the image which I had coloured using Copics. I added a thin black boarded with a fineliner pen just the frame the image.
I hope you like it and will continue to enter your cards into the ADU challenge.

Thanks for popping by,

Pierre the postie

Morning - Im back with Pierre the Postie,
I thought he went perfectly with the paper and these little envelopes where you could put a secret little message! 
These little envelopes would also be easy to make yourselves from brown paper.

I used a die to try and make a stamp shape image which the image was printed on to. I coloured him using Copics and added some twine which is from Papermania the same as the background paper.

Just a quick one from me today - lots to do!
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine and bank holiday.

The background paper is from Barnyard collection at Bella Blvd and I used a stamp greeting from My Favourite things. I die cut some grass and couldn't resist adding a few pink enamel dots.
