A Craft Day

 With my friend Shelly , from work and her daughters. The girls were keen to make mini books to put their holiday photos in. We also made covered note books. The one above (By Abi) is going to be painted later.

 I think I could have spent a few days there! I am also very Sorry Shelly ( if you read this) that you are now probably spending a small fortune online!

 The inside of Laura's book - all ready to just add photos.

The front cover - Isn't it gorgeous?!
The idea for this book came from HERE last year.

Another one

 I have done both again in different colour ways but it's now too dark to photograph the other and i still have a bit to do on it. Flippin' housework keeps getting in the way!

The frame is made with nesties and has 3D foam on it to make it stand out.
Hopefully back tomorrow with the other one if I get chance.

Hope And Joy

As promised yesterday, two cards made from the digi stamps that I accidently bought from Funky Kits.
They are called Hope and Joy (hence the title of the post ;))

I was surprised at how easy they were to colour. They look so complicated but all the shading is already done for you so, you just need to choose the colours.

Don't forget if you want a closer look to click on the image. I always save them really large so you can see the details

This one reminds me of my girls when they were tiny.

I may have to get a couple more of these as they were so quick to do .

A Green Fairy

Back to the copics. I AM in love with them...I would never have thought that this would be the case...I just thought they were "posh" felt tip pens!

I have used this stamp quite a few times now. Designed by Carol Vinsons for sweet pea Stamps. I love that you wouldn't want to mess with her. Anyone who knows me, knows that green is my favourite colour. I have coloured her with shades of green and the background is three different shades of grey scribbles.

I have given in a bought a couple of Funky Kits Digi images today. They are almost finished so, I will hopefully share them tomorrow.

A painted card

This is an image I stamped a while ago and painted with water colour pencils and H2O's.
This stamp was bought at stamps and me HERE

I have to say, that after using the copic pens, I now find the water colours a bit faded and wishy washy. As I still have loads of water colour paper left and am ever hopeful of hot sunny painting days, you have not seen the last of the paints yet.

I chose to resist emboss four images for this card. I used clear embossing powder and various distress inks.

Playing with Copics

This card I am entering into the "In A Sweet Pea Dream " Challenge this week HERE.

Please be gentle with me as I only acquired the pens last week and that was the first time I had used them. I do like the vibrancy compared to the water colouring.

I have no idea what colours I used but when I get better , I will post the colours.

I CAN tell you that these are copic ciao marker pens and the sea dragon is coloured using all the BG colours. I had to search on you tube for how to do background colouring as i kept getting awful lines. I quite like the dotty backgrounds.
If anyone has some tips or demo's , I would gladly watch and take note.

The stamps are both from Sweet pea.. There is a special offer on at the moment ( that I MAY have to take advantage of !) You spend get 10% off and two free stamps for each order in July ( stores choice) A great way to build up your Sweet pea Collection. Any way link to shop is HERE

Twisted Card Sketch No 068

This weeks sketch and twist can be found HERE
The alphabet has been downloaded from HERE and then cut out and layered. I have also used glossy accents on it, so it looks more like jewellery.

I have just used lots of bits that were laying on my desk. Don't forget to leave your link on the blog if you play along as I love seeing everyone's work.

Week end at Debden

Sorry a bit picture heavy! I finally ( Thanks Ginge) got to use Copic pens! and here is my very first attempt ( again thanks for the lesson Ginge) .

Yes..I had noticed that there is no sentiment on the card! I will pop one on later. I also now need those lacy nestie dies ( Thanks Nets) .

My second attempt...not so great. I do think she looks abit like she had a bad spray tan!

I love how vibrant the colours are though.

Back to water colours. Painted a week or two ago with H2O's and pencils.

One of my very Favourite stamps. I am going to enter this one into the Deep Ocean Challenge No 3.

This is a digi stamp from "Make it crafty" Again water coloured.

I pinched these papers from Deb and she made the Tim Holtz style flower to decorate cupcakes at the weekend. I just added die cuts and stickers.

I do love craft weekends were we swap stash!

Another "Make it crafty" Digi Stamp .

I didn't have any tiny wax seals but I did have some wax crayons. I melted the red one with my heat gun and let it drip onto the image and then stamped into it.

A simple card with stolen stash on it..Deb made the windmills to put onto our gift boxes, i took some on the table i was sitting on ( probably Ginge , as I stole most of her "stuff") and then made another myself :)
This is the one I made LOL.

Ann had a great idea, to take the gift box( plastic) apart and use it as a template to make our own and fill with some of the THOUSANDS of sweets that Deb brought for the weekend. She made this and I decorated and filled it. I Do LOVE my crafty friends :D

I had a brilliant weekend with lovely people, great food and great accommodation. Other pics are on my other blog
