Arielle

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, followers and Visitors

I trust everything and everyone is OK!?

Today we start  challenge #  66  over at 


 and the theme is

Layer It Up.

If you feel you the  need of a little inspiration,
then please hop on over to the challenge blog
and see what my team buddies have created.

Our sponsors for this challenge are :-

Store https://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps
Prize 2 Digi Images

and

Faery Ink


Store https://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps

Prize 3 Digi Images


My card has been make using the image Arielle from
Faery Ink and if you should wish to purchase her
then just click on the link HERE


DETAILS

1. Using a 8 x 8 white card I matted it with paper from
my stash. ( Layer 1)

2. Next using brown card and the Robert Adams corner
die I proceeded to cut the four corners and adhered
them to my card. ( Layer 2)

3. I decided to make all my other layers using the
Tonic pinhole circle dies. There are four circles
all of various sizes and I used two D/P's from
my stash. ( So now we are up to layer 6). Once
the circles were cut I layered them up using  foam
tape.

4. The image was printed onto super smooth and
coloured with Copic's and  still using the Tonic
pinhole circle die she was then cut out and
again foam tape was used to give the height.
( Layer 7 )

5. I then took the pretty border die from Marianne
and using teal glitter card cut it out and laid
it across the bottom of the circles. ( Layer 8)

To complete I added paper butterflies and added
glitter as their trails.

So you see its quite easy to use  layers on a
card and I was quite surprised when I counted
up just how many I managed to use.

Well that's your lot from me today, thanks for calling.

Until Next Time

with vintage photo distress ink by Tim Holt.

2. Next I added a piece of Kraft card that I first distressed with

Summer Time

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors,

How are you today?
Welcome to another challenge
over at

The theme chosen for this month is 

Bring On Summer

We Have New Challenge Blog Rules, so please Note:-

Entrants Must Use A Digi or Element from a Cd

Also Only Two entries are allowed, unless you have used
a Whoopsi Daisy image then 3 entries are allowed
==============================

Hope you will pop over and take a peek at what my team

buddies have created for your inspiration.

My card has been made using the topper, backing 

   Paper  Sentiment & Elements  from the So Cute Cd
You can purchase it and more gorgeous cd's and
 and didgi images just by clicking on the link
HERE.



DETAILS

   1. Using the Cd SO CUTE I printed off the the backing 
paper, bunting, anchors, buttons,sentiment and 
topper.
          
  2. The topper had two extra images of this cutie so I
decided that rather than put to one side I 
would decoupage her.
    

3. The card is navy blue and sized at 7 x 7 and to 
this I added a cloud background paper.
Next the backing paper from the cd
was added at an angle.
     

    4. I decided to add an extra beach hut, so I used
the Tattered Lace beach hut die and
striped card.  I then backed it with
some navy card before adhering to
the card with foam tape.

5. Next I added the topper again with foam
tape and the buttons were also added
with foam tape.  Th other three anchor
buttons were adhered fat as was the
sentiment and two anchors.  The
bunting was only adhered at each
end so that it would not lie flat.

To complete I made the bow and added a shell
to the centre.  Also three shell were glued
along the sentiment.

So there you go, my take on Summer
Wonder what yours will be ???
          

Thank you for calling and leaving me your comments
I really do love reading them.

Surprise

Good Morning
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors
Firstly I would like to welcome Helen Haines, who
has just become my latest follower. Thank you Helen
and I hope you enjoy your visits.

How are we all doing?  Well May has now gone
and here we are in JUNE half way through the year.
Scary to think only 6 more months and its Christmas

Well that's enough of that!!

Welcome to our second  challenge over at


This challenge blog is solely for the more sexier/Darker/ Goth
type of images, so sorry no pretty cute images.

Our theme is always going to be 

ANYTHING GOES

so plenty of scope for you all to show us your darker side!!
You have until 3pm on the 30th June NZ Time to get
your entries in


Our sponsor this month is 

Karleigh Sue

Here is the link to the store - Karleigh Sue
Prize -  4 Digi Images

My card has bee made using the image Biker Bomb
and you can purchase her HERE

DETAILS

1. Matted black card onto an 8 x8 card and rounded all
the corners.

2. Next I took the image into Sherif and first created the 
background and then added the bike.  Then the image
was brought in and I placed her sitting on the bike.
I then printed out the page.

3. I then printed off the image again onto super smooth
and coloured her with Copic. She was then fuzzy cut.

4. The image that was printed onto the background  was
also coloured up with Copic as I did not want there to
be any uncoloured part of the image to show.

5. I then took the fuzzy cut image and using silicone
glue I adhered her over the first image, so now she
is sitting a little proud of the bike seat.

6. I decided she did not look quite right the way her
leg was positioned so I went onto the internet and
printed off the picture of the balloons.  I then made
two small slits one just above her leg and the other
just above the bike mudguard and then pushed the
balloon strings through and one balloon in the
mudguard slit, therefore concealing where her
leg finished. I adhered the balloons with foam
tape to give added height. 


7. Again the corners were rounded and I then adhered
it to the black card and added a peel off border all
around the edges.

To complete I added glossy accent to each balloon
to give then a shine.

Thanks for stopping by

DETAILS
1. I took two 8 x8 white card blanks and joined together to

2. Using the papers from Michelle R Designs Shabby Pink

of the 8 papers in the pack, so on the front panels I have

Copic's.  I then die cut it out and added pink ink around the
