CCM #181 Love, Love, Love

It’s my turn to host over at Crafty Cardmakers and today I have picked the theme of Love…… As Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away now is the time to make something special for the one you love, or just for someone in love!

181 Love Love Love angle

I have gone for my favourite Lili of The Valley stamp. The wedding’s colour theme was purple, so I coloured it in greys and mauves with my copics.

181 Love Love Love

I used a Crafters Companion embossing folder for a panel behind the main image and the sentiment comes from Craftwork Cards year of sentiments pad. I placed the heart panel into the inside of Chloe Endean’s Christmas stamp! I only inked up the frame edge of the stamp and embossed it with a sparkly powder, but I wasn’t satisfied there was enough bling, so I went around the inside edge with a glue pen and added glitter to that. Both the image panel and the outside panel were edged with a purple copic to tone in with the image. A couple of gems and that cute little arrow and heart charm finished it off.

DV #148 All About Love

I can’t believe we are three weeks into the New Year and already thinking about a date in February! I swear the older you get the faster the time spins past.

Anyhow our challenge at Dream Valley today is All About Love. We are sponsored by Pink Gem Designs and I chose to use Chloe With Daisy for my ‘love’ themed card.

148 All About Love

I coloured her with copics and prisma pencils, and used a sharpie white pen for highlights in her hair and to make the butterflies pop a little in her hair.

My frame was created by cutting an oval from the centre of a previously embossed piece which I had embossed in white, with Sue Wilson’s Noble Oval dies. I coloured the white embossed hearts with Dr. PH Martin’s Bombay Inks with a colour I made myself by mixing a blue green, blue and white together. I also die cut an oval out of purple mirri, which I then used to cut the Valentine message from as well.

The background paper is from Craftwork Card’s Refresher pad, one of my favourite pads because the colours are so fresh and zingy and remind me of the way those Refresher chews taste when the sherbet explodes on your tongue!

I edged both the frame and BP with glamour dust and then added three dragonflies cut from another pattern in the Refresher pad, and glamour dusted them also.

CCM #180 New Beginnings

Our first challenge for 2017 at Crafty Cardmakers is New Beginnings. We want to see your creations related to new beginnings, that might be the arrival of a baby, a new relationship, marriage, engagement, a new year's resolution even!

CCM 180 New Beginnings2

I have gone for a baby card! I was going to go for something very arty to do with resolutions BUT that went out the window when I went down with that awful chest thing that has been doing the rounds. I am still coughing, although not as badly, and my ribs no longer feel like they have been bruised really badly when I do. So anyhow I plumped for the easier alternative and made a baby card. I have deliberately made it multi-coloured so it will suit the sex of any possible new baby who might arrive in the year!

My patterned paper is from an old DCWV stack called Nanna’s Nursery. All the little elements, apart from the star, also from Nanna’s Nursery, were cut from the same slightly pearlescent white card I used to mat and layer behind my patterned shadow frame, and then I coloured them all separately by hand.

My ‘new’ also applies to all the dies, which are having their first outing here and, apart from the stars, they are all from Sue Wilson.
