The One in Close Up

Good morning crafty friends.  The monthly challenge over at the East Wind Facebook Group is a close up image in a project.  I have made a card using Pink Rose & Shimmer Chiffon digi stamp.



I used white cardstock, papers are Floral Fantasy by Louise Tiler and purple cardstock to matt.  I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and polychromos then used a Spellbinders oval die to cut it out, matted on purple cardstock and added to card with foam pads.  The sentiment is a stick on I had in my stash.  To finish I added purple ribbon, a gorgeous purple butterfly I had gifted to me and purple pearls.

Purrrfect Together

Hi everyone, I am here with my DT project for Creative Moments.  This fortnight we are lucky to have All Dressed Up Stamps as our sponsors.  For my project I have chosen the very cute Purrrfect Together digi stamp.


I printed off two images, coloured them with polychromos, used a Spellbinders circle die to cut them out.  I cut  two scalloped circles in pink and green to matt behind the images. I used a white card blank and pattern paper I received as a gift so do not know the name.  I then added white and pink cardstock before laying down the images on foam pads.  To embellish I used two small flowers and stick on hearts.

For more inspiration go check out the rest of the DT.

Silver Make Believe

Hello everyone, my card today has a silver theme with a touch of make believe.


I found in my stash a sheet of silver grey paper with silver glitter circles so used this on a white card base, then I added a triangular strip of blue and silver paper, followed by white scalloped lace and blue spotted ribbon.  The image is Sherri Baldy's Princess Jasmine and I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Pens and polychromos.  I added silver stickles on her shoes and the lamp.  For embellishments I added a silver heart and blue/silver bead dangle. Sentiment a freebie from craft magazine.

Springtime Love

Good afternoon, in my area of the UK there is the promise of spring in the air.  Snowdrops and daffodils are bringing much needed colour in my garden and it is a touch warmer.  With this thought in my mind I have used spring colours for my card.



I used white cardstock for base and Papermania Botanicals paper pad.  The image is Valentine 7 from Fitztown and I coloured her with Specctrum Noir pens.  I fussy cut extra yellow roses to frame the image and added white lace with lemon ribbon running through it.  The sentiment is from my stash.  A CAS type of card for this project.

Torn to Pieces Card

Hello Crafters, my card today features Bunch of Love Digi from Ching-Chou Kuik.  I first learned of these gorgeous images from Coldwaters2, a very talented crafter here on Blogland.


I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and polychromos and added stickles to the heart balloons.  I started with white card base, the papers were gifted from a fellow crafter so I do not know the name, all the layers were torn and distressed with Ranger Vintage Photo ink.  In between I added mulberry paper frayed at the edges then the focal image. Butterfly is by Prima, sentiment and flowers from my stash.

Snow Diva - DT Project

Good morning, I would like to share my DT project for the Talula Girl Inspiration Team who showcase the digi stamps of Talularouge.  I have made a wall hanging using the digi Snow Diva.


The base is stiff card and I started off with  a layer of pale paper before adding the image. I coloured her with polychromo pencils and a touch of glossy accents on the lips, then framed all around with lace and embellished with a handmade fabric flower, an applique with a heart bead in the centre and a spray of paper flowers.  To finish I added dangle lace at the bottom more lace at the top with a butterfly and heart embellishment and finally ribbon to use as a hanger.
