CYDI? Challenge #28 - Green Is Here

Oops...I'm a day behind on my post for the latest CYDI? challenge. This time the challenge is to use green, check it out here. For my project I wanted to make something other than my usual card. I used the City Stamps digi's by LilyPink Designs to make this necklace.

Happy Birthday Paddy!

Today is my cousins birthday. The card I made for him uses two Creative Stamping Magazine sets. The image is from the For Him set and the sentiment is from the Celebrations set.

Happy Birthday Poppie!

Today is James' cousin's birthday. The card we are sending her uses Felicity from the 60's Girlfriends Collection by Make It Crafty. She is backed on a dotty paper from my scraps and a music note paper from the Bird Song pad by First Edition Papers. To finish I used a Forever Friends sentiment.

Snow Day

I recently got a few Dilly Beans digi's and have been enjoying colouring a few of them. This is my first card using one of their images.

I also want to share the picture I took this morning of the view from my craft room. I love snow!

No Lines

I mentioned in my last post that I had been browsing through some techniques. One that I have been meaning to try was no line stamping. For my first attempt at it I used this sweet image from The Greeting Farm. It is definitely one I will be trying again as I really like how she turned out.  

Never ending card

I have been browsing through techniques and decided I wanted to give a never ending card a try. I followed the directions from this video. All the stamps I used are from the Jungle Creatures set by Kanban.

CYDI? Challenge #27 - Getting Girly

The new challenge over at Can You Digi It? is to make a girly card. For mine I have used Good Shoes by LilyPink Designs. The image is backed on a paper from the Designstax pad by Papermania.

Mrs. Monochrome

I love this stamp which came with the latest issue of Creative Stamping magazine. I knew when I saw the set that I had to emboss her. The paper, flower and the brad (centre of the flower) are all in the Black line from the Capsule Collection by Papermania. The two empty corners were rounded because I thought it looked too plain before.

Monster Rock!

This is Monster Rock by KiniArt, he is available from Can You Digi It? When I had coloured him and cut him out I realised that he fit perfectly on this square from the Rock Star pad by Best Creations. Luckily the colours matched him too.

More birthday cards

These are two more cards my Mum received for her birthday. These were made by me for my Grandma and Uncle to send.

This first one uses an image which was from the Disguised as a Grown Up Blog. I paper pieced her dress using the same paper I backed her on. It is from the Oxford pad by Basic Grey. The sentiment was created using the Script Alphabet by Hobbycraft. 

The second card uses Brad and Janet from the Rocky Horror set from Octopode Factory. I created the sentiment using an Elzybells alphabet. For anyone that doesn't know, 'Dammit Janet' is a song from Rocky Horror.

Happy Birthday Mum!

Today is my Mum's birthday! As well as making a card for her I have made her a calender. This guy is Romeo by Kenny K. Anyone who has ever had to make my mum a coffee will have most likely heard her saying the phrase I have added. The writing was done using Hobbycraft's Typography Alphabet, and the paper is from the Oxford pad by Basic Grey. 

I used another Kenny K image (Total Disaster) for her card. I have been planning this card for her since I first got that digi. I used an Elzybells alphabet for most of the sentiment, and a FunkyHand stamp for the rest. The spotty paper is from the All Seasons pad in the Recollections range from Michael's.

Goth Rock Star

This is the calender I have made for myself. I have used Shy Goth Girl by what was Squiggle Stamps, but they have closed and their stamps have moved to The Stamping Shack. The background paper is from the Rock Star pack by Best Creations. I finished off the empty corner with some gems.

This is the calender I have made for James. I added fingerprints to each month on the calender, as well as all over the background. The zombie is from Make It Crafty, although he doesn't appear to still be on the site. I created the writing using the typewriter alphabet from Hobbycraft.

Purple monochrome

When looking through my pile of printed digi's I was inspired to use one of my favourite images. This is Devilish Donna by Kenny K. She is on a paper from the All Seasons pad, which is backed by a paper from my scraps. The flowers are from the small Petal Pouch by Papermania, with their centres punched from the same scrap paper I used matting. The gems are from my stash.

My cousin and her boyfriend have gone back to University today after the Christmas break. I gave them a pair of calenders as gifts to take with them. I included pictures of when James and I went with them to Comic Con. The title was added using glittery stickers by Making Memories and the paper is from my pile of out of packaging paper, so I'm not sure what pad it's from.

Just a quick, simple bookmark to share today. I often find myself in the middle of reading more that one book at a time, so I like to have a good supply of bookmarks to choose from.

CYDI? Challenge #26 - Sparkle, Sparkle

Happy new year to all my blogging friends! I hope you all had a good start to 2013.

Today's card is for the Can You Digi It challenge. Challenge 26 is to use some sparkle. I created my card using Bingo Dress Form & Wings by LilyPink designs. I used Star Dust Stickles to make the wings sparkly. There are also a few of the craft goodies I got for Christmas used on this card. The ribbon is from a pack designed by Amy Tan for American Crafts, and was tied using my Papermania Bow Maker. The background paper is from the All Seasons pad from the Recollections line by Michaels, and the circle is from the Blossom pad by K and Company. 

 Here's a coupld of closer pictures to show the sparkle on the wings.
