Just a simple card.....

We're sponsored by Beccy's Place this month at Outlawz Sketch.

She has some awesome images on her site.  The one I've used for my inspiration today is just called silhouette.  I thought it was just beautiful when I saw it.  It actually comes with a sentiment, which I've added to the inside of my card.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


I've printed the image on design paper from Lili of the Valley.  I've also used some black card and design paper from Joy Craft.


I've added some purple matching polkadot organza ribbon, some black gems and a sentiment made up from Tim Holtz stickers.

Thanks for popping by today, we hope to see you at the challenge

Valentine Wild Flower



I've made an alternative kind of Valentines card with no hearts or read :)


When I originally did this image he was holding a heart balloon.  My hubby actually gave me inspiration on this one, he said "where would he have got the ballon?"  So I changed it to him holding a wild flower he might have just picked from a garden.

The image has been coloured with Copics and a black polychromos pencil, my warm greys have run out of ink so I needed to top his beard and tash up :)


I did my usual, looked for the design paper after.  Amazingly this was in the first paper pack I picked up on the first page!  It's from First Edition.  I've also used some black card and an XOXO sentiment.

Thanks for popping by for a look today.  We hope to see some of you in the challenge

Mr Spaceman

Our Outlawz Sketch challenge is being sponsored by Beccy's Place this month.

I've chosen to use the Astronaut and Alien from Out of This World stamp set for my inspiration this time.


The image has been coloured with Copics and I've also used a white paint pen for the stars.

The image and the green glitter paper were out with Spellbinders dies.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


As well as using black card I've used design papers from First Edition.


The finishing ouches are some silver glitter stars that I got from Hobby Craft and a friend sentiment from Make It Crafty colour with Copics.

Hope you like my inspiration for this week and we see you at the challenge

Something a little girly for the new year


For my girly inspiration I'm using one of the Crafteezee stamps - What to Wear, you can find it here.


I've coloured the image with Copics then fussy cut it out.  Behind the image you can see papers cut with Spellbinders stamps.  I've also used a vintage metal flourish I've had in my stash forever.


Here's a closeup section of my flowers so you can see the 3-D effect.  this one will have to go in a box with some tissue paper when I post it.

Full view of the whole card next.  My design papers are from Maya Design, Lemoncraft and 13 Arts.  All the papers have been edged with vintage photo ink from Tim Hotlz.  


The What to Wear sentiment from the stamp has been cut out with a die, the mounted onto 13 Arts design paper cut with a die from the same set.  The tiny aqua heart is from the stamp set which I cut out by hand.

In between the design papers you can see a section of cream lace.  I've also used some pearl gems to finish the card.


Here's the card with a few of the things I used to create it.  Hope you like my inspiration for today

Raining pink hearts

So this was so much fun to colour and make in girly pink :)

I'm using Puddles of Kitty Love from Knitty Kitty Digis today, they're sponsoring us at Outlawz Sketch this month.

AND if you haven't noticed it's Christmas Day today so I hope you all have a great one!


I've coloured the image with Copics then cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  The edges have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.

Behind the image the design paper has been cut in a scalloped circle with another Spellbinders die.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


My design papers from Lemoncraft have also been distressed with the Tonic Solutions tool.  The paper flowers are a selection from my stash and I've also used some pearls.



The sentiment you can see here in one from Make It Crafty and was the last thing I added.

Thanks for popping by today, we hope to see you at the challenge

Christmas Garden Party

Ever wondered what those cheeky gnomes in your garden could be doing when your back's turned?  They may just be having a party and taking selfies!!



The first time I coloured this image I did it in monochrome.  My hubby didn't want to give it away for Christmas, but we did in the end.  So I thought I'd do one just for him in traditional Christmas colours.  Inspired by all those brilliant creative people out there who have shared their colourings I decided to do mine with multi coloured and patterned hats :)

Thank you so much everyone for the idea!



I coloured the image with Copics then framed it and the card with black card.  My design paper to match the image is from First Edition.

The sentiment is from Scrapiniec and I've added a few wooden snowflakes.

Happy Christmas to you all I hope you have a wonderful time <3

Ballerinas



I've gone for a fairly neutral colour scheme as though the ballerinas dresses are a silvery grey colour.  I've done this using Copics.

Wanting a classy looking card I've used some silver and white design paper from First Edition to match the image colour.


For some interest I've layered some banners in similar colours (First Edition design papers again), then added a couple of sequin sand gems.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  You can see more new release inspiration from the Dressy Girls here in the Facebook Group or here on the challenge blog.
