Love is is the Air

Good morning crafters, I hope you are all well and staying warm.  I would like to welcome my new followers to my blog and to thank everyone for your support and encouragement.
Here is my card

I used white card base and Colorbok Natural Expressions papers.  I fussy cut out the flowers and decoupaged them on to the card.  Next I added a strip of white scalloped lace and placed diagonally on the card.  I die cut a shape with complimentary papers and added to the card.  The focal image is Sassy Studio Design's  Snow Queen Portrait  digi image and I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and polychromo pencils.  The image has been die cut with a circle die and I fussy cut the plait so it would hang down, then I die cut a scalloped circle as a matt.  The sentiment is a stick on from my stash.  To finish I added two pearls for embellishment.

Fairy Breeze Winter Card

Hello everyone, my card today is winter themed.

The image is Sherri Baldy's Fairy Breeze and I coloured her with polychromos, added a yellow feather on her wings and matted on black cardstock.

The base is white cardstock and I have not used any patterned paper.  I ran blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug with a snowflake folder and matted it on to black cardstock, I added red textured cardstock to coodinate with flowers in the image's hair and layered on top white scalloped lace.  I die cut a snowflake in silver paper and added it to the top of the card.  I wanted to keep this card in a CAS style.

Talula Girls Inspiration Team

Hello everyone, I would like to share my exciting news with you, I am now a member of the Talula Girls Inspiration Team, who showcase the digi stamps of Talularouge on Zibbet.  The artist behind the stamps is the very talented Jamilola Talula and I am delighted to be a part of her team.

My first project features Penny B 

Isn't she cute!  First I reduced the digi in size before printing then I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens, fussy cut her out and added Glossy Accents all over the image.

My project is a small hanger made from the plastic ring of a Redline Tape reel.  I covered it with ribbon then crochet trim and made a loop at the top, then a third layer of fine lace.  At the bottom I added several ribbons in co-ordinating colours to hang down as a feature.  I cut two circles, one in cream card, the other in Wild Rose Studio Antique Library paper.  Then I fussy cut out two flowers from one of the papers and adherred to the circle.  Finally I added the image on foam pads to give dimension.  To embellish I added a few die cut butterflies.

My second project features Deer Me

I love the face on this little deer.  I made a tag and for the background I dry embossed a honeycomb shape and then sponged it with acrylic paint and distress inks.  I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and fussy cut it out then adherred to tag with foam pads.  At the top is a flourish die cut and at the bottom a grass die cut.  I added dark emerald lace and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  To embellish I added die cut butterflies and a dragonfly with flatback pearls on their bodies.  Cream ribbon at the top to finish.

I hope you like my first two projects featuring Talularouge Digi Stamps.

As always thank you for visiting my blog I really appreciate it and love reading your comments.

Icy Snow Queen Tag

Good afternoon and a Happy New Year.

My project today is a tag with lots of glitter and lace.

The base is cardboard and I have covered it with glittery paper from my stash, the colour scheme is grey, silver, cream and white.  Next I added two ribbons, one in silver and the other open weave silver mesh.  At the bottom is a dangle lace with light blue pearl trim and the top has picot shaped lace with white acrylic beads hanging down like droplets of ice. The main focal point is the beautiful Icy Snow Queen digi stamp by Aurora Wings.  I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and added lots of stickles for sparkle.

I layered the image on to silver glitter cardstock and added to tag with foam pads.  To finish I added blue ribbon at the top with a pale blue flower from Wild Orchid Crafts.
