Skateboarding fun



A card for Dad using a digital image.  I find I am using digital images more often these days.




A cute image from a Crafters Companion CD.  I coloured the image with Copic pens.  I came across the Dad stamp in the range last week, it is from the Docrafts Papermania range.  I can see me using it a lot.  Spellbinders Labels two die was used to cut out the image and the card to mount the image.  Card from the Camden Town range was used for the backing card and I also stamped the Dad word on a scrap piece from the Camden Town range.

Icy Snow Queen


I have only just found these digital stamps, they are beautiful and I will be buying many more.  They are from Aurora wings, this one is called Ice Queen.





I used Broken China distress ink to colour around the edge of the stamped image and also the edges of the card the stamped image is attached to.  I used Majestic labels 25 to make the frame around the image and also layered it on top of silver card. The snowflakes were cut from silver and white card.  I also dotted silver stickles around the stamped image.

Tom's Birthday




Even though I have three boys I still find it hard top make cards for teenage boys.  I don't know why but it always takes twice as long to make cards for them.  Here are two I made this weekend.



I used a digi stamp from Mo's digital pencil and coloured it with Copic's.  The card and greeting are from Crafter's Companion's Camden Town range.




This card was also made using the Camden Town papercrfting kit and the Happy Birthday was cut using the Crafter's Companion Die'sire Say it with Words die's.

Purple Birthday





The Silver fairy from Wee Stamps, I coloured her with Copic pens and Spectrum Noir pencils.  Her wings are glittered with Glamour dust.  I cut the stamped image with the Spellbinders Lacy squares and the corner  was cut with a Marianne die and also glittered with Glamour dust.  The backing paper is from one of the Crafters Companion CD's but I cannot remember which one.  The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Winter Fairy






Another one of the lovely Wee stamps, this one is calle Mountain Lily.  I wanted her to go on a winter card so used blues.  The main card is an 8 x 8 and I used Broken China Distress ink around the edge to match with the fairy.  I embossed some white Centura Pearl in a Crafters Companion Embossalicious folder.  The Mountain Lily fairy and the square behind her were cut out using Spellbinders Adorning Squares set.  I have not added a sentiment, maybe later when I send her to someone but probably not as I like her as she is.
