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.

I have loads of papercrafting kits and I really should use them so I made a few cards from some of them.  Just quick cards but fun to make, all from Crafter's Companion papercrafting kits.

Two Christmas ones first from Bebunni 

One from Humprey's Corner

Some birthday cards
 One from Angelina

Two from the Fairie Poppets range

 The lovely pastel green colour of the card does not show up in this photo.

Time for stamping and colouring now, see you soon.

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.
