Burly Girl

My cousin and her boyfriend are part of a team filming a documentary about burlesque for their university work. A couple of weeks back they were filming a show, which James and I went to and really enjoyed. I saw this image from Simply Betty Stamps before we went, and I couldn't resist getting it with plans of using it on a card for my cousin.

Delicious Doodles DT Call

There's a DT call going off at the moment on Delicious Doodles. Since they are one of my favourite stamp companies I couldn't resist applying. To apply you have to create a post with your three favourite projects on, write a little about yourself and explain why you enjoy using Delicious Doodles images. As I narrowed my favourite cards down it became apparent that most of them actually used Delicious Doodles images, so I decided just to go with my three favourite of them.

A little about me...I started card making about 8 years ago, and have since become a bit of a hobby addict. I have tried my hand at, amongst others, scrapbooking, candle making, nail art, painting canvases, cross stitch, jewellery making, and am now learning how to knit. Through blogging I have met some wonderful people from all over the world, which is my favourite thing about crafting.

Why I enjoy Delicious Doodles images...I love the different styles of the stamps, from the cute animal images, to the dark, gothic ones. I love that there are images which make card making easier, either because they are so detailed that they don't need much to be turned into a beautiful card, or they already have shading making colouring them easier.

The cards....
The first uses Butterfly Bliss. This is my favourite card I've made. I'm not sure what I like so much about it, as I'm not really a flowers and butterflies kind of girl. I think it's because it was something a little different for me, as I usually stick to CAS cards.

The second uses Marina. I just love this image! This is one of those images which doesn't need much to turn it into a beautiful card. Just look at all those details in the image. The other thing I like about this image is that it reminds me of one of my closest friends who loves The Little Mermaid.

The third uses I'm Ba-aaack. I really like Zombie stamps, and this has to be the most gruesome one I own. I created the sentiment to go with it based on a joke I'd heard a few days before making the card.

The new challenge at Can You Digi It? is Little Ones. I have created an ATC bookmark using Boy Wizard by Dana's Digital Cafe. All the papers used on this are from my scraps.

Happy Birthday Adam!

Today is James' cousins birthday. When I asked James what he wanted on the card he suggested 'those creatures', so I have used Flob from DoodleFactory's Creatures Set II. I made the background paper using my Maple creative colour spray. The dots were stamped using bubble wrap, which was inspired by this card. The sentiment was embossed using a chocolate scented embossing powder.

In memory of Jacqui

This girl has been coloured, cut and waiting to go on a card for a few weeks. After only finding out yesterday about Jacqui's passing I wanted to make a card in memory of her. I was only properly introduced to The Digi Garden late last year, but my collection of images quickly grew, her generosity with freebies on the Facebook page helped that! I know she will be missed, and I want to send my deepest sympathy to anyone who knew her.

CYDI? Challenge #29 - Love is in the Air

The new challenge at Can You Digi It? starts today. With Valentine's day being this week our theme fittingly is love. For my card I used the camera image from Photography Set A by Annie J Designs. I added a sentiment using the Typewriter alphabet by Hobbycraft. Pictures of You is a song by The Cure which is one of mine and James' favourite songs.

Happy Birthday Catherine!

Today is my cousin's birthday. I kept her her card CAS, just using a couple of cute Bugaboo digi's and a Hobbycraft sentiment.

Nine Years!

Today James and I are celebrating nine years together! When browsing the Kenny K store recently I came across the Spaced image and knew what I wanted to do for James' card. We are both big Star Wars fans, so I based my card around that. The sentiment comes from the scene where Leia tells Han she loves him and he replies with 'I know'.

Cat Hat

This card is for one of my cousins who is a lover of 'weird' hats. I thought of her as soon as I saw this image from Digi Garden.

SCS - Mix1

This card is another one which was sent for Thomas' birthday yesterday. It is also my entry for the new Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge is to use something matte and something shiny. For my matte I painted the star using acrylic paints. My shiny is embossing, the sentiment is embossed although it doesn't show in the picture.

Happy Birthday Thomas!

James' nephew is one today. I made the card we are sending him to match the present we got him. We have bought him a Build-A-Bear, which is dressed in a Lightning McQueen t-shirt. I used this cute bear image from Beccy's Place and coloured the one in Lightning McQueen colours.
