I Love You To The Moon & Back.

Good afternoon everyone!

Happy Saturday to you all.

Today I am showing you a card I made back in February of this year.

It was created as part of my DT duties for All Dressed Up Stamps, and has never been blogged because it was to be published by Practical Publishing in their Complete Cardmaking Using Your PC magazine.

Sadly they ended publication of that magazine on the issue before our cards were to be in print.

This month, however, if you visit Simply Cards & Papercraft online, you will be able to download your FREE digital stamps and papers from our All Dressed Up Wedding Theme! Now how cool is that?!

To create my card I used my Copics in these shades:-

Suit:- 100. C9. C7. C5.  B37. B05. B02

Dress & Veil:- T6. T4. T2. T0.

Moon:- C4. C2. C0.

Flowers:- B37. B05. B02.  YG99. YG97. YG03.

The background I created with my blue chalks.

The topper is my Heart Doily Die by Whimsy Stamps.

This is the back view of the card, and the papers are all from All Dressed Up Stamps too.

(If you do make it, I would truly love to see it once it’s done! And please be kind enough to link back here to my blog too.

Thank you.)

Materials Used Are:-

– “Over The Moon” Image and “Heart” Paper from Free Cd.

– Whimsy Stamps Double Scallop Heart Doily Die.

– 5 A4 Sheets of White Hammer Card.  (I used hammer card for it’s texture.)

You will need one sheet for the two hearts and four sheets to complete your card base.

– Copics or other colouring medium.

– Chalk for background or preferred medium.

To Create:-

1 – Cut two hearts out using one A4 sheet of white hammer card, and your heart doily die.

2 – Set one heart aside for now, and, using your chalk (or preferred medium) shade in the centre of the heart. 

3 – Colour your image and fussy cut around it.  Curve it very slightly (for added definition) and then stick to your heart using your 3D Collal Glue.

4 – Cut four pieces of white hammer card to measure 6 inch square.  Take two of these pieces and make a score down the very centre at 3 inches.  Burnish and fold.

5 – Adhere these two folded pieces to one of your remaining 6 inch square pieces.

6 – Now adhere your last remaining piece of 6 inch square card so that it covers the seam, where your two folded pieces meet.

7 – Take your contrast card and cut it to measure like so;

     Two pieces at 5 3/4 inches square.

     Two pieces at 5 3/4 inches x 2 3/4 inches.

8 – Take your printed heart paper and cut it to measure like so;

     Two pieces at 5 1/2 inches square.

     Two pieces at 5 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches.

9 – Mat and layer the contrast card and printed paper onto your card base.

10 – Take the heart you set aside, and adhere this to the inside of your card.

11 – Take your heart topper (with the image on) and adhere this to the LEFT front panel of your card.  Take care to align the centre of your heart to the middle edge of your card front.

12 – Add your flowers (and any other embellishments you wish to use.)

Voila!  Your beautiful Wedding Celebration card is complete!

No Red or Green Christmas

Good morning everyone!

Today I am bringing you a card I created as part of my DT duties while still a member of the All Dressed Up team.

All  Dressed Up Stamps are sponsoring the brand new challenge over on the C.R.A.F.T Blog and the challenge theme is no red or green.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

For my creation I chose to go with a very CAS style of card, using one of All Dressed Up’s free images (available on the blog here.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Pearls and papers are from my stash.

And the glitter was added with my fruit punch stickles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The banners are hand cut and the paper pad is from my spots and stripes capsule collection pad.

The bauble is part of the free Christmas Sentiments set.

My Final DT Creation For All Dressed Up.

(If you’re looking for my girly card for the Outlawz DT please click here.)

Good afternoon everyone.

Here’s wishing each and everyone of you a fabulous weekend. Smiles.

Today’s creation is heralding the end of a wonderful DT term with All Dressed Up Stamps.

Wendy’s images are simply superb and it has been a true pleasure designing for her. But! It is time to step aside and let somebody else have that pleasure. Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

My card today is a very CAS one, with the frame drawn by me, and the sentiment my own, computer generated one.

The image is called Baseball Bear and you can find him here.

Isn’t he just the most awesome bear you ever saw?! Grins.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The card I mounted him onto is pale cream hammer card. You can’t tell in the pictures, but it has gorgeous texture and I feel it finished off the whole thing nicely.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

To bring him to life I used my Copics in the following colours:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Bear.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Baseball Cap & Ball.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Baseball Bat.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Tee Shirt.

I decided to go with long fur for him, because the artist drawn line suggested that was what was envisaged. I just hope I did Wendy proud with my very last creation for her.

I would also like to promote the wonderful Alyce Keegan and her amazing Animals Class @ Kit and Clowder too.. because that class meant that I looked forward to colouring this bear’s fur with no worries at all. So thank you hun for your time and care put into the classes.xx

Girls – it has been a pleasure sharing the past months with you all, and I wish you well in your new adventures too.

The challenges I am entering into are:-
