LOTV Robin

Afternoon Everyone,

This is a quick card I made with one of the new Christmas LOTV stamps.  It's fairly plain as I seemed to have been short on ideas at the time and wanted to keep it fairly flat for posting.



I've coloured him with copics and used an old pre-printed sentiment (I think from craftwork cards, but not sure).  Papers used are Nitwit collections.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Use Ribbon, twine or lace
Sir Stampalot - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Penny Black at Allsorts - All Creatures Great and Small
Fab n Funky - Anything Goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

I hope you all have a good weekend.  We're going to York to visit relatives and out for a meal.

AYLI DT - FAVOURITE EMBELLISHMENT

Morning Everyone

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite embellishment (and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite please).

I have made a baby card for my daughter's friend and although I love all the usual embellishments, i.e. flowers, pearls etc., another of my favourites are the heart shaped doilies.  I love them, they are so pretty, quick and easy to use without adding bulk to a card.



I have used a LOTV image coloured with copics and the papers are First Edition. The sentiment is also LOTV and I've added clear glitter with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the balloon, stars and bow.

The sponsor for this challenge is

SMALL AND QUICK

Morning Everyone

I hope you've had a good weekend.

I have a little card to share with you today and I do mean little.  It is just over 4 inches, and was super quick to make.  I might do a few more like this.

I had another play with my Reindeer Games stamp set.  I think these reindeer are so cute!  I coloured this little one up and added 2 of the extras you get with the set.  I die cut them out and stuck them onto the stitched circle.

I matted him onto a scrap of red card and then searched through my christmas oddments to find a suitable piece for the the stitched banner from Creative Expressions.


I embossed my fave Merry Christmas sentiment in silver, added glossy accents to his nose and that's it!

I hope you like.

AYLI DT - FAVOURITE COLOUR DUO

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight the theme is to showcase a project using your favourite colour duo (and don't forget to tell us why please).

My favourite is lilac and aqua.  Lilac is my fave colour anyway, but I think it goes so well with aqua, they are very fresh looking and look good on any card whether it's summery or christmas.  This is the card I've made.




This is an All Dressed Up image called Butterfly Bunny, she's so sweet.  The papers are from a LOTV pad and I've used a Mama Elephant tag and a Sara Davies flower die.




The sponsor for the challenge is

CHRISTMAS WITH THE CUTIES - FAVOURITE FESTIVE DIGI

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas with the Cuties and the theme is to show us your favourite festive digi, but it must be cute and, of course,  a christmas creation.

We were kindly offered images from the lovely sponsors, Papernest Dolls, and this is the card I've made.





The image is called Emma with snowflake banner and I've coloured her with copics and layered her up onto some lovely new paper, to me anyway, from First Edition called Christmas Promise.  I've put stickles round the distressed edges of the white rectangle and used fun flock for the pom pom on the hat.  The sentiment is stamped in metallic silver and is from LOTV.

If you'd like to pop over here and see the rest of the creations from the DT, it will hopefully get your juices going to create those christmas cards.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Crafty Hazelnuts CC Extra -Anything Goes

FLOWERS FOR YOU

Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying the warm weather again.

This is a general birthday card for my stock box and it's a fairly simple one too.  I love this little Odd Dog from LOTV, he's so easy to colour.  I have put some shading round the edges, but you can't see it very clearly.



I cut the large banner with Spellbinders Baby Bunting die and used oddments of paper.  I have so much paper now,  I've got to stop buying it!  Pearls, a doily and a LOTV sentiment finish the card off.

I hope you like it.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

A Gem of a Challenge - Animals
Ribbon Girls - Use Any Image
Creative Knockouts - Birthday Wishes
Crafty Friends - Floral
Glitter n Sparkle - Anything Goes
Come and Get It Challenge - Use 2 or more Designer Papers

Thank you for visiting and if you leave a comment thank you for that too, it is much appreciated.

AYLI DT - PEARLS OR GEMS

Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project with your favourite of either pearls or gems (and don't forget to say why they are your favourite please).

I do like both, but tend to favour pearls a lot more. I think they finish a card off and look more elegant, particularly for special occasion cards.



This is a wedding card for my niece made with a LOTV sentiment.  The colour theme of the wedding is supposed to be a secret, but I've heard on the grapevine I'd be safe with silver and pink, so let's hope so!  I've used a spellbinders die for the mat and silver paper from First Edition, silver sheen card and added embellishments of flowers, pink and green leaves, lace, pearls, a metal corner and because I didn't like the empty space on the right hand side, I added 2 small metal hearts.

One of the flowers is my first attempt at a rolled rose.  I made it in coloured vellum and added a pearl to the centre.  I really like the look of them in a bunch of flowers.





If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here, you'll be able to see the lovely creations from the rest of the design team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Celebration
The Sketchy Challenges - Bingo (flowers, die cuts, pearls)
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Noor Design - Die cuts
The Ribbon Girls - July card
