Sympathy Angel

There hasn’t been a whole lot of non-DT cards here lately, so I figure it’s time to post up a few more of those. Today I’m showing you a sympathy card I made on order. It is not often I make this kind of card as a layered card. I gave myself the challenge of colouring up in very pale shades which is rather unusual for me, but I felt this kind of card needed a soft feeling to it.

The stamp is Young Angel by Aurora Wings and the papers are various ones by Maja Design. I’ve used dies from Memory Box and La-La Land Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here is another photo of the card.

Copics used:(pink) RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66, (green) YG61, YG63, (grey/white) W1, W3, W5, (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E34, E37, Y000

Twin girls

When I was asked to make this card I was so thrilled it was two twin baby girls! I’ve made a few twin cards before, but not one I could make super girly and pink and frilly and pretty! I took a while to find the right image, but when I came across this Mo Manning image, I simply had to have it! I coloured it in with copics.

As for all the goodies on the card: I have used Noor Design dies for the butterflies, edge border and leaves, Live and Love Crafts for the lace and berry flower, Wild Orchid Crafts for the remaining flowers.

Here it is: my final post for the Tiddly Inks Design Team. The post is a week late because I have spent the entire start of the year with a nasty cold that seems to finally loosen its grip on me! Anyway, my tiddly term is up, unfortunately. I have absolutely loved working with this images and my pile of favourites has grown a whole lot bigger! One thing is definitely not over, though, and that is my love for colouring up these images, so you most certainly haven’t seen the last of my tiddly makes! As it is a new year, we are not doing a normal themed challenge, however there is a challenge! See the title of my post? You got it! Tag your creation in your blog or on Facebook, Instagram etc with #tiddlyspiration for your chance to win a fab prize! It’s so easy! See the challenge blog for more details.

My card for this post is one I recently made for a friend who got married right before new years. Congratulations, hun! I wish you both all the best!

Of course it also had to have a box to go with and Love You Mostest Couple is the best stamp as it didn’t only have the most adorable bride and groom, but it also has a lovely floral heart which was perfect for my box. I coloured it all in with copics and had a lot of fun (read struggled..) with the hair!

GoKreate dies were used for the shape of the card and I used Noor Design dies for the butterflies and the box is also from there. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts whereas the ribbon was bought at Range in the UK and doesn’t seem to have a brand name on it.. How odd. Anyway, I used loads of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, distressed all the edges and added some frantage!

Country cupcake

Almost weekend. I am actually looking forward to tomorrow. Some ladies at work have decided to do a hobby day. It will be interesting to see what they all make, and have some time to sit and craft. I have never been to anything like this, so I am all curious about it!

A colourful image sometimes deserves a colourful card. I had this cupcake themed paper in one of my Papermania pads and the colour matched the image perfectly. I decided to frame it with the pinky-red colour of the image and used a similar colour to frame the image. What I used was actually a cupcake wrapper, or whatever they are called. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the punches by Martha Stewart, the card base from Craftwork Cards and the image from Lili of the Valley.

Thailand wedding

First I have a slight announcement. The Hobby House is having a fun challenge this month where you can enter both old and new creations. All that is required is that you use one of their toppers on your creation! What’s great is that even us on the design team get to enter! Another reason for me to get my stuff added to the blog this month, hehe. Their toppers really are quite fantastic and I have loved using them over the past year, long before I asked to join their team. Check out the challenge here and the toppers here!

The reason I went to Thailand last month was because a friend of mine was getting married there. The wedding was absolutely beautiful! When I got back home I made her this card and the matching box for it.

The card is made with various bits from my stash as well as a Hobby House topper and pearls, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and various punches by Martha Stewart. The tiny little jar was bought at a crafting faire last year and inside I put sand I brought with me from the beach the wedding was held on, in Hua Hin.

The box is made with flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. A bigger jar of sand from the beach with a tiny little bow made from a hanging strap on one of my jumpers; it was the only one I cound find that was thin enough, heh. The punches are from Martha Stewart, the paper from Pion, the dies are spellbinders and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Here is a photo of the card in the box. The ribbon around the edge of the box is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
