Mo Manning Video Boy

I think my Mojo has run away & left me at the moment! So much going on & feeling really flat about it all, but I whiled away a few hours yesterday making this card for my nephew. Its not very exciting & I know its hard to make cards for males, but this took me so long as I had no inspiration at all.
The image is by Mo Manning over at Digital Pencil Too. Coloured with Promarkers & I am reasonable happy that the colouring is getting better. Mounted onto paper by Dovecraft (can't remember the name) & faux stitching. Button & initial from stash & initial coloured with Promarkers.

Time for another OSAAT challenge & this one is to either follow this picture for inspiration or Good Luck

I have used an image by Beary Dust & is part of the February collab that will be going into the store shortly.

I have used both the colours in the picture & the Good Luck theme & coloured the image with my new Promarkers. This is the first time I had used them & I know my colouring needs a lot of practice. BP from stash. Martha Stewart punch. Nestie labels 11 for mount & letters from another bargain I found at my local stationers which I have coloured with Promarkers too & added to the card with brads.

Sleeping Baby Tilda

2 cards made this afternoon. Yesterday I went into town &popped into our local stationers, they sell loads of craft bits as they buy up bankrupt stock, so its always worth a  visit. Well I bought 2 MS punches & 35 Promarkers. The Promarkers were 50p each!!!!!
I now need to practice my colouring with them as they are different to my beloved pencils.
These 2 cards are for my friends daughter who is about to give birth to her first child, so one of them will be These are coloured with Promarkers. All BP, ribbon, brads, lace from stash. Nellie Snellen dies used for the toppers. The bricks were cut out of the scrapbopok paper I had.

OSAAT Challenge 46

This week we have an Anything Goes theme BUT you must use a digi! The sponsor is Kenny K
The winner will receive 3 digis as 1st prize. Runner up will receive 2 digis & 3rd will receive 1 digi, all of your choice. Our Christmas club also starts this week, so you can start building your Christmas cards for next year in plenty of time.

I have made a Christmas card this week & used a Floppy Latte image called Snowglobe & this can be purchased here.
I used My Craft Studio & enlarged the image into a card size shape. Drew around the image to create a back & joined the 2 together at the top to make a stand alone card.
I paper pieced the scene & added Glamour Dust onto the roofs & ends of the trees, although it is difficult to see from the photo. I have then added an acetate overlay & used Liquid Pearls to create the snow in a snow globe. It looks quite effective, although I say it myself. Its always difficult to photograph acetate, so photo does not show the sparkle unfortunately.

Tilda goes Boutique shopping

This is another of my purchases last week, when I went craft shopping with a friend. We are lucky around here as we have several all within 20-30 mile radius, so can visit more than one in a day.  In an earlier post, you will see I used Shopping Tilda by herself, but here I have teamed her up with the Boutique stamp. I have coloured with Marvy pens & a water brush, just for a change.
BP are both Bearly Mine & are perfect for this stamp.
Added ribbon, jewels made into flourishes & flowers from stash.
Martha Stewart punch on the bottom edge.

Challenge 45 OSAAT New Beginnings

Its time for me to do another DT card for OSAAT & this week its New Beginnings, this can mean, new love, weddings, engagement or even new stash, interpret it as you wish.
We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen this week, who is kindly giving a £10 voucher to the winner.
I have used  Panda Bear, Going in Circles papers which can be purchased here. For the challenge I have used a new Joy Crafts Die that I was bought for Xmas, with which I made the flowers. The box was a template from UKScrappers & cut out on my Craft Robo.

Added some jewels & made the flowers using the new die & 3 of the papers with a card to match. Can you see how the paper colour graduates? If you look at the top photo & then the one above, you can see more pink in the box. I really love these papers.

Shopping Tilda

Yesterday I went to 2 craft shops with a  friend, followed by lunch, what a fab day!!!!! Of course going into the shops, meant you could not walk out empty handed, so I have added to my collection of Tildas. I bought Shopping Tilda & the boutique stamp, which I will be playing with shortly. My friend has loads of the stamps, so we are going to swop them, rather than keep buying the same ones. It has taken me a long time to like her, but now I love the range & will be buying more.
She is coloured with Prisma pencils. The little handbag stamp I bought from Stamp Addicts, no name on stamp, but its like a tapestry stamp, so cute.
Flowers, ribbon, dewdrops & pin from Crafty Feeling & were in this months subscription. Raffia from stash, as is flourish.
Entered into Just Magnolia Your favourite things, which is of course, my new stamp.

La Pashe Toilet lol

I have quite a number of male birthdays in the next month, so need to get a few ready. This is another one of those stamp sets I bought from Imag-e-nation for a £1.00 a set, ideal for male cards. I bought them just before Xmas & have not yet had the chance to use them, so they are still
Once more coloured with Prisma pencils. Papers are leftovers from another project & have come from my scrap drawer, so no idea who to give credit to, as they were digi papers.
