Fairy Sunny Day “photos” card

Do you always colour the images as they were when you bought them? Or do you dare to experiment? To crop, resize and make something a bit different? Christy of Tiddly Inks asked a question that (perhaps unintentionally, haha) got me thinking a bit outside the box. I quickly made a few frames in Photoshop using the Fairy Sunny Day stamp to show what I was thinking and was instantly inspired to make a card with it.

My idea was to have several photos in a film strip type style. I aligned her slightly different in each rectangle and then cropped off what I didn’t need. For the final rectangle I zoomed in a little bit to get her nice and close. As I really enjoyed this, you will probably see me do this again!

So what is the most difficult part about using the same image several times?! Trying to colour it somewhat similar in all versions, hahaha. This is the first time I’ve coloured the same image repeatedly for one card! The hair was the most interesting! Let’s see the result.

Isn’t the chipboard perfect for this? Make it Crafty chipboards are great. I don’t know why I took so long to acquire some! I coloured it with the same colours I did her dress and then printed the sentiment directly onto the card.

Another photo, of course. Isn’t Wryn the cutest?!

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) B000, B32, B34, B37, (wings) RV00, RV02, RV04, (flowers) R24, R59, Y04, Y19, YG63, YG67, (sky) B000, B32 + blender

Maybe you’d like to try to make one as well? If you don’t know how to do the frames to put the stamps in, you can use the one I made. Click on the images to get the full size and then right click to save them to your computer. The first one is a .png with a transparent background and the second is a .jpg with a white background.

I would love it if you gave me credit and linked to my site if you decide to use one of them. Please don’t share the images, but direct people here instead. 🙂

Animal fun – Tiddly Inks blog hop

It’s blog hop time! Tiddly Inks is hosting a blog hop to introduce the new temporary DT that I joined last month and some guest designers are taking part also. To view the page for the blog hop, please click here. Don’t forget to visit each person’s blog or those in the Inlinkz list and leave a comment – there are great prizes to be won and you’ll find freebies, too! You can find all the details here.

I decided to mix and match a few of the stamps. The cat, hat, presents and text stamps were fun to put together for this CAS card. I think they are perfect for fun party cards! You can find the various stamp sets here.

And guess what! The amazingly talented Christy has let me put one of her stamps on here for you all to download for free! How great is that?!

Simply click on the photo (it should open in a new tab for you so you get it full size), then right-click the image and choose save picture as, the image is called fun animal party. Then you can print it out and colour it up like you usually do. Don’t forget, as always, you may not upload the uncoloured image to share on your site. If you want others to get the digital stamp, you are more than welcome to direct them here so they can download it, too. Make sure you always follow Tiddly Inks‘ terms of use when you use one of their images, this one included!

I’m sure Christy would love to see what you all make with it, so please upload and show off your coloured project at the Tiddly Inks Facebook group. Yes, I’d love to see it, too! 😀

Vannessa

It is our wonderful Mi Ran facebook DT co-ordinater Vannessa’s birthday today. It is her 40th!! That certainly warrants a celebration, and a celebration it is! On our facebook group we have a freebie this week to celebrate as well as a competition.

This is the card I made using the freebie. The balloons are blank, so I added a 40 to it! I’ve used Noor Design dies and a bunch of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I also used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to make the bouquet she is holding as I thought it looked pretty cool! There are coloured flowers underneat.
