Baby girl in buggy

I seem to very rarely get to make baby cards for baby girl; it’s always boys, boys and more boys. Then suddenly I got asked to do two almost at the same time. As with the other card I’ve chosen to hide the name of the baby.

The image I’ve used on this is by Wee Stamps. Isn’t it cute? I’m quite happy with the shading on it and tried to keep it soft and simple. I made a border around the image using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some cheese close and punched out some leaves and butterflies with Martha Stewart punchers.

Here is another photo of the card laying down

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair) E53, E55, E57, E59, (buggy) RV00, R81, R83, R85, R89, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, 100, (bird) B000, B81, Y00, Y04, Y17

White winter Wryn

Another Tiddly Inks Christmas card from me today. I used Winter Wryn again, and I am sticking to the same kind of theme I did when I last shared a card using this image. (You can have a look here if you’d like.) I went for a red outfit this time and a whiter card. It seemed like the perfect card to share today as I got featured for my other card over at Copic in the Craft Room. What an honour! I am so chuffed!

The dies are from Noor Design and Tim Holtz and everything is, as always, coloured in with Copics.

Spring swing

Time for a new Mi Ran anything goes challenge in the facebook group. This month we have the optional theme of: Things with Wings! I chose the gorgeous Haylee for this and coloured her in with copics. As we’ve had a crap summer and autumn is around the corner, I deliberately chose a spring theme!

The papers I have used are by Lili of the Valley and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I used a couple of Martha Stewart punchers to make the butterflies. As the theme is things with wings I used it as an excellent excuse to add then! The border is also made using a Martha Stewart puncher and the leaves with a Noor Designs die.

Tiddly inks DT call: eat more cake

So, it would appear that Tiddly Inks is holding a DT call. I have only recently ventured into the world of Tiddly Inks – their images too cute! What can I say, if you don’t already have some Tiddly Inks, you’re missing out! I just spent the weekend colouring up a few and cannot wait to make them into cards!

I made this card using my favourite of theirs: Eat more cake. To be fair, the name of the stamp is just as appealing as the stamp itself! One can never have too much cake!

Right, back on track. I’ve coloured the image in with Copics and distressed the image before adding frantage to the edges. I think this might be my first aqua and yellow card actually, but it is a great combo that I’ll definitely use again! I ruffled up the edges of the papers, which are from Papermania (the aquas) and something I don’t remember, as usual… The dies are Noor Design, the flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I’ve used a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp and some ribbon and cheese cloth from a local shop.

Heart-strings

As the year is a bit awkward for doing challenges every 4 weeks and still only 12 a year, the July challenges at Mi Ran’s facebook group lasted two weeks longer than normal, so for 6 whole weeks. It gave us all a bit of a summer holiday and everyone on their holidays had more time to enter. Win/Win if you ask me! As it is time for the first August Challenge, it means it’s time for the progressive challenge! It’s fun too as we get more entries each month! The thing about the progressive challenge is that you join the facebook group and sign up for the progressive challenges, once you enter the challenge you will automatically recieve the image for the next challenge! How neat is that?! So come join up and join in! If you’d rather just purchase the image in Mi Ran’s shop, you can do so next month once the challenge is over. This is what I made for this month’s challenge.

I struggled a bit with the image, so instead of making it easy for myself.. I waited until the last minute, decided to try dip dyed hair for the first time and do something I hardly ever do: make a very simple CAS card using my own colouring. As I have a terrible habit of doing things backwards, I’ll try Kit and Clowder’s dip dye tutorial in their skin and hair class tomorrow.

The sentiment is by Pink Pettycoat. I added some rhinestones to jazz it up.
