Party Animals New Release!!

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all having a Happy Friday!

Today I am showing you one of the FABULOUS brand new release images from Amy Doodle Stamp.

They are called Party Animals and they are just AMAZING!!

This one is called Hippo Birthday and yes I loved him on sight! Grins.

To bring him to life I used my Polychromo Pencils.  I knew that I wanted lots of texture on him, so I was careful not to lay too much colour down or press too hard and flatten the tooth of my card.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

These are the colours I used on Mr Hippo.

191. 132. 101. 230. 231. 233. 234. 235. 181. 110.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

To get the board to have that fabby wood grain effect I used these colours.

247. 246. 110. 183. 182. 180. 178. 177.

I do feel very proud of my wood grain. Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The buttons and twine are from my crafty stash, and I thought they were the perfect embellishment for a male card.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

My wonderful circle paper was a freebie from a very good crafting friend.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Ta Dah!!!!

(I have been waiting all week to post this!! Hehehee.)

Fabulous isn’t she?

She is called Chante Chantelle and she is part of a brand new range of  Mocktail Girls available from the super talented Amy at Amy Doodle Stamp!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

To bring her to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA   Clothes.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA       Eyes.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA     Skin.  

Hair colours are E18 & 15. YR21 & Y21.

Lips R24.

I apologise here, my camera battery died a death on me.  And I don’t mean it needed recharging either.. I had to order a new battery.  (Quietly sobs in the corner here.. I was LOST without my camera!!)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Okay, so my heart shapes were cut on my Silhouette Cameo machine.

Those Resin Flowers (which are STUNNING by the way!) I got from an online store in the US.  But they are actually from Kaiser Craft (which is an Australian Company.)

I’m in the UK so they’ve had quite a journey haven’t they?  Smiles.

My papers are from Bearly Mine Designs who very, very, sadly does not trade anymore.

Not since these ridiculously restrictive new VAT laws were introduced as of the New Year.

So many fabulous digital companies have closed their doors.  Sometime I am so NOT proud to be British!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

What I created is a telephone note pad.

The reason?  Well, I’m sure you all know what it’s like when you go to write down a message and there is no pen, nor paper to be found anywhere!! Laughing.

Yes.. and that happens a lot in our house.  (But hey!  Not anymore!) Big smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This is what it looks like with no paper added.  The lining of the box matches the rest of my easel holder.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the holder all folded up.  (Not that I have this folded. Ever.  No, I have it very proudly on display right by that telephone!  Hehehee.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The side and back view.

(Yes the back got decorated too. Well you just never know. Right?)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

 I really do love this so very much, especially how those fabulous folds turned out!!!

I have always held a secret fear of folds when it comes to my Copic Colouring.  But well, as you can probably tell from my ramblings here, that fear is held no more!

(MASSIVE SMILES HERE!!!!)

Over on the  Amy Doodle Stamp Facebook Page we have been holding a little competition all week long.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning the Cutely Amazing Chante Chantelle is to leave a comment on each of the DT creations using her.

Yes, you read that right. Just pop on by and leave us all a comment.  That’s it!  Nice and Easy.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The really cool (and simple) tutorial for creating this easel notepad holder can be found here.

As you can see, the designs here are slightly different to mine, as I added a full back and then bent my card very lightly.

I found (for me anyway) that it looked more uniform at the back, and offered slightly more stability.)

I can’t wait to see what you create with your Chante Chantelle.

Be sure to show your make on our Facebook Page won’t you?!

Hugs n Happy Crafting Everyone!

To bring this cute image to life I used the following copics:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

For the bird.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

For the love heart.

The border was coloured using those B markers up there in the top picture, and the dots in the background I did with the B06.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

The card base is my own, which I designed with my Silhouette Software.

The dotted cardstock is from Hunky Dory Crafts and is just so thick and luxurious!

That pale blue pearlescent card is from Crafter’s Companion.

And those lil’ buttons?  They’re from a rather special box I have that is full of jars jam packed with buttons!! Smiles.

I can’t remember where I got my box from but you can get the jars as singles from Every Crafts A Pound.  They’re still a great bargain!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

To complete my CAS style card I added strips of white hammer card with blue dotted ribbon stuck to the front.  Then I took another strip done exactly the same, and folded it to add dimension.  Then the buttons and voila – all done!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA
