A Tiddly Bit Musical

It's a rare just-for-fun card today, featuring a cute Tiddly Inks image called Wryn Goes Caroling.  Although this is a Christmas card, I've used some musical themed papers from the Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics pad which seemed to fit the occasion.

Bear and Kittens

It's Friday again (it feels a long time coming this week for some reason) and to get me in the mood for the weekend I've used my favourite colour and an image of a bear and kittens.

In my honest opinion you can't generally go wrong with either teddies or kittens, so by incorporating both in one place (with a small splattering of pink) surely that is a perfect recipe to get the weekend off to a great start, right?

Watch you don't get stung!

I'm still on my mission to use existing stash, so I've inked up one of my Whipper Snapper images with a summery colour scheme.  This project is to support the challenge as As You Like It Challenge where the theme is to showcase your favourite season, and although Christmas is probably my favourite crafting season, the long warm bright days of summer are definitely my favourite season.

It's a clean and simple layout and although I'm the first to admit that yellow is not one of my favourite colours, I actually do quite like the finished card, and it certainly does seem to represent summer.

Blondie with Hedgehog

It's a quick share today with a cutie from Tiddly Inks called Danni and Danny.  I've not used lace for a while so I've rectified that today with a lacy double bow, and I've also used one of my dies that hasn't come out for a while.  And that's about it.

Be careful where you put that bauble

I'm back to my old fussy style with today's card, and it's another festive number featuring one of the new Wild Rose Studio images.  I've water-coloured it with my DI reinkers adding a smidgeon of glossy accents on the baubles.  It's another hat-trick because as well as the image and papers, I've also used one of WRS's new dies too; a pretty lacy snowflake tucked behind the image.

Good Luck Barry - Pink

I was recently tasked with making two 'good luck' cards for some students, one masculine and one feminine.  The masculine one was posted last month (here) and today's is the pink and girlie one  :0)

It's given me the opportunity to use my Vintage Summer Basics paper pad again.  I really love the soft colours in this pad but it's getting used up rather too fast as I'm a little bit addicted to it!

Ice Cube Penguin

I've been playing with my new LOTV images, and this one's been coloured with my Inktense Pencils.  I was really trying to keep the colours soft, but I'm finding it so hard to manage.

I'm still in a CAS mood, not that I think this image was one of my better colouring attempts and deserved the attention, but just because that was the mood I was in (still).

Teddy with Gerbera

It's official:  I adore these Maja Design papers.

I've used some of the soft pink papers from my Vintage Summer Basics Paper Pad and used the same shades of pink in my image.

I decided to stitch the panels, (note to self - think twice about cutting a circle shape if you're going to stitch them) and added some white pearls and a couple of white floral die cuts.  I also used some of the backing papers as the solid piece behind my Arianna Sprig die to make it stand out against the white background.

Masculine ... until I added the flowers



Today's card was meant to be a masculine card....

Blues, browns, a simple layout....

No ribbons, just some rustic twine....

A dog texting (like dogs do!) ..

... And then I added flowers.

Don't ask me what I was thinking!

I'm not sure myself.

A Quick and Simple Merry Christmas (or two)

I've been making some C&S style Chrimbo cards to sneak in some quick makes.  These two are slight variations on a theme.

Well, in truth the main difference is the snowflake and the base shape, so it's very 'slight'.

Oh and I trimmed the white panel on the second one so that the red backing card framed it a bit.  But otherwise, it's just a die cut sentiment, some twine, a snowflake and a pearl.

There's nothing remotely cute in sight, so even hubby approved for once!  It's so rare that he likes my creations, that it's probably safe to say that he'll be receiving one of these himself for Christmas this year! :0)

This project is to support the Q for Quick challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.  Even making 2 of these was quicker than one of my usual coloured creations, so it definitely qualifies for the theme, although I do feel like I cheated a bit by not colouring an image!
