Flossie Bumblethorpe

Hello - There is a new challenge starting today at I love Promarkers and it is sponsored by Dr Digi with an Anything Goes theme!! I have had fun colouring and creating this card using a huge print out of  Flossie Bumblethorpe 

I printed Flossie out supersized as I was lacking in a bit of inspiration as to what to do for my card this week. I then paper pieced her dress with patterned paper from Basic Grey Urban Prairie Paper. The only other things I have added are some red papermania gems and a resin flower! I doodled a frame around the image and mounted it on black card. 

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour Flossie - 
Skin - usual
Hat & Bag - Raw Sienna, Cinnamon & Cocoa
Hair & Walking frame - Cool grey 1 to 5 and black
Berries - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Trim - Oasis & Pastel Green. 

I really like how she turned out - I reckon Flossie is a bit of a force to be reckoned with!! 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Dr Digi in Making Cards Magazine.

So I can finally reveal that I have had the cards that I made using Dr Digi images published in  Making Cards Magazine which is out now. In the magazine is a discount code for your to get these fab Christmas images...

 I used a DoCrafts 12 Days of Christmas Filigree Card blank amd covered the inside with Lawn Fawn Snow day patterened paper. I printed the image which is called Simple Santa onto Super smooth card and coloured the image with Promarkers. I die cut the image using a Lawn Fawn stitiched circle die and attached it to the middle of the card. I used the same die to get the correct shape – arrange the letters from an Alphabet stamp setcalled Harolds Abc into an arc on a stamp block and stamp onto the image panel using Memento Ink. I added some Amercian Crafts Ribbon and then added the greeting from Craftworks cards onto a punched circle. I used diamond stickles to add some sparkle to the snowman and finally added a Holly leaf embellishment from Hobbycraft.

Skin – Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice, with Baby Pink Cheeks.
Trousers & Scarf - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy.

Ben's 40th Birthday

Hello - Today is my Husbands (still odd saying that!) 40th Birthday and I have planned a surprise trip for us in the near future to a Glamping lodge. It is luxury under canvas!! When Dr Digi released this new image - Well I just knew it was perfect for his Birthday card... This image is called Rub-A-Dud-Dub

 And these are the inspiration photos of the lodge!! How amazing does this look... The only thing I'm worried about is the weather but there is a log burning stove to keep us warm so fingers crossed it stays dry!

 I hope it is a fab as it looks but all the reviews suggest it will be!!! I'll let you know when I've been!!
Happy Birthday Ben and here's to a lovely relaxing break.

3D Retro arcade game.

Morning - The fab Dr over at the Dr Digi's house of stamps had created this ace papercut for us to play with! It forms a retro arcade game and is really simple to construct. This papercut will be available in the shop very soon!

I printed it out on thick strong card and would recommend at least a 260gsm to make it sturdy. I then cut around the whole shape  -}

I then scored along all the fold lines so they were nice and crisp . This helps it form the shape really easy.

I put glue on all the tabs and allowed them to become tacky - I then folded the shape together and used a paper clip to hold it whilst the glue dried.
And here are the finished results - The bottom is hollow so it could be stuff with treat size chocolate bars like Milky Ways and used as a gift box... 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all enjoy this new product.... there may be others coming soon also to keep your eyes peeled!!

I cut a square card into a round card base and die cut the tree boarder using a Lawn Fawn die on some glazed bazzill. I glued some cloud patterened paper from Echo Park Summer days collection and then cut them all to shape to match the round base.
I used punches to make the cloud from swiss dot bazzil and glued these so they overhang the edge of the card. I coloured the pig and bird with promarkers and then used an acetate strip to attach the pig to appear to fly and move around. I covered his wings with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen in clear.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the images -
Pig - Pastel Pink & Antique pink with Warm grey hooves and shading on his wings.
Bird - Warm Grey 1,2,3 & 5 with a Gold beak.

Retro Roller skating - wired for sound.

So I was late creating this card today as I was playing around with Video tech & editing trying to do a tutorial for the Dr... (I will get there so stand by for a future project... teaser!!)
I have used Wired for Sound and just knew I had to do her with this paper from Crate Paper - Oh Darling collection. I love the Retro Roller skates and I used to have a pair just like them with a big pink stopper! There is actually a Roller Rink in our town so I think its cool again - but I've never been!

I used the same paper collection to die cut the oval using a My Favourite things die and also the flag. I mirrored this shape in matting the greeting which is from Pebbles onto Grey Bazzill. The circles are a sizzix die which I used on pink satin card. I used some twine to attach a Roller skate charm to the die.

More Christmas with Dr Digi...

Morning - Its Sunday so it means its time for a new Dr Digi creation and today I have done another Christmas card using  Rescue Squad

I die cut the front of the kraft card to cut away the top corner using a  My Favourite things die called stitched wonky edge. I used the same die to cut a strip from Red paper and also a white panel that I attached the image onto. I used a glittery paper from My Minds Eye Comfort and Joy paper collection to cover the inside of the card so the top section shows through.

I used prismacolour pencils to colour the image for a change to Promarkers. And I think I definitely need more practice to perfect this medium. I attached the panel onto the base card with 3D foam and finally added a Hobbycraft kraft greeting.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Tv Dinner Dennis

Morning - Here is todays card created for Dr Digi using TV Dinner Dennis.
That big pile of Bangers and Mash just made me think of Cowboys so I've teamed Dennis up with a Western film strip which also holds the Twisted easel card in place. These cards are so easy to do but really effective.

I printed the image out four time - Three on the patterned papers for the chair, trousers and slippers and once onto white. On the white layer I used promarkers to colour the rest of the image and then layered the him on to the chair pattern. The next layer of the trousers I glued onto the coloured image and finally added the slippers.
I used some wood effect paper across the bottom and some white star embossed paper as his floor and wallpaper. I cut a panel from the comic strip and mounted this onto black card which I then used 3d foam to raise in order to hold the front upright.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Unusal
Hair, Tray & Sausages - Tan, Cinnamon, Cocoa & Henna,
Top - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Napkin - True Blue & Royal Blue
Mash - Light Fawn & Saffron
Peas - Leaf Green & Lush Green
Warm Grey 1, 2 & 3 to shade the image along with Powder blue on the plate and his eyes.

Right I will be at work whilst you read this today - so hope you all make the most of your Sundays off! Im not at all bitter!! But I will get a lie in on Monday so it's all ok!

The pattern paper has a lovely gloss finish and is from SEI called Bridgeport but I have had it in my stash for ages!
I layered up the greeting from Pebbles and added a co-ordinating Yellow resin flower with some wooden Embellishment branches that had actually broken from the main Bird Embellishement from Hobbycraft. I used Promarkers to colour this in green. So I have actually been quite Frugal with my recycling and using bits up on this card... I knew there was a reason I keep every scrap!!

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers -
Hair - Warm Grey 5,4,&2
Skin - Usual
Flowers - Powder Blue, Buttercup, Lemon, Canary, Gold, Lime Zest, Pear & Moss.
