Tickled Pink Blog Hop and Sentimental Sundays - Birthdays

I am lucky enough to have a chance to take part of Tickled Pink Birthday Hop! I am also being a bit cheeky again and rolling two things into this card - Sentimental Sundays challenge for this Sunday is Birthday. It just felt right to join these two in one card!

What a month of previews, releases and giveaways Tickled Pink Stamps has had and now to top it all off a blog hop to go out with a BANG. To join the Pink Party of the year you can start HERE

And WHY is this hop not to be missed? There is a major prize at the wind down of the party, by hopping along you have a chance to win EVERY stamp released during the month of October, that is over 15 stamps, including all the images and sentiments from the first release. If they come in rubber and you want rubber over digi, then you can have rubber. If they only came out in digi then digi it is, it's all up to you and your liking. AND want to know something else? There are hidden candies hiding in within the hop.

If you have come from Yani then your on the right party line.

My card is using one of Lil' Lads - he is called Luca and I LOVE his smug smile and self-assured demeanor!

I made this card for Claire's son Daniel who is on the Autistic Spectrum suffering from Aspbergers Syndrome and can not have a birthday party. So every year before his birthday Claire puts up a card request for him so he could still celebrate. He has been very down this year and I really hope all the cards he will be getting are cheering him up a bit. I'm afraid my card might reach him after it's published on my blog - sorry, Claire!

I coloured Luca with Distress Inks, I really should practice with those more. A lot to learn, too few hours a day!
Daniel's name was stamped with a scrabble pieces rubber alphabet I FOUND in my stash! Yeah. I can SO come upon surprises rooting through different drawers. I cut the pieces out, stuck baker's twine to the back with Sookwang tape and mounted on red card. I think they look pretty cute hanging from the top of the card!

I sponged pretty much every available edge with Fired Brick distress ink. I'm obsessive like that. lol

Now your next party stop is Asa!

Thank you for joining the Tickled Pink Stamps hop and have FUN.

Stamp Something - Rubber and something pink

We were asked to get out our rubber stamps this week at Stamp Something and also to add something pink to our cards - for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I made this card when feverish and slightly dizzy and it certainly shows, colouring just didn't work out and every design detail is slightly wonky. Plus Miss Mischief got her hands on the card before Pearl Pen was dry. Groans, scraping off smudges, building new swirls, still looks ewwww.

But I didn't have time or energy to make another one. I think the only thing I like here is the gingham flower I made and sprayed with glimmer mist. It kinda does its best trying to carry off the whole design.

Won't be entering it into any challenges though, too much pressure on one poor flower. lol

By now this card has become one of Miss Mischief's toys. She still hasn't pulled the flower off. Glue Gel rules!!

Thhanks for looking and happy crafting!

I'm a Visiting Crafting Woman at Tickled Pink

Tickled Pink is celebrating their 1st birthday with a big party of loads of releases and guest designers. I am lucky enough to be amongst them and get to play with couple of ultra cute images!

Today we are showcasing Kellita - TA-DAAA:

She is available as a digital image from Oct. 30th at midnight - well, in Australia. I'm a bit muddled with my time zones. Even this post is a little (cough-cough) late. I think you will be able to preorder the rubber version as well.

Kellita is coloured with my trusty Copics. I will list the colours further on - yes, I actually remembered to write them down and didn't loose the slip of paper. Yay me!

The papers are from wonderful Restoration pad from Crate paper - LOVE it. So rich and warm and luxurious while still deliciously vintage.

The stitching is all by hand using a really cool multicoloured THICK embroidery floss - boy it was a nasty job to get it through the paper but I LOVE the result.

White corrugated thingie - erm, it was around the cookies. Saved it, cut the piece, inked it. Perfect.

The leaves are die-cuts I got from Tara, I embossed them with four (4) different colours of UTEE to get them right but now I love them.

And the sentiment is combined from several Elzybells stamps - they are now out of business, sadly. Excellent designs and real good quality.

Now the, and the promised Copic shades are:
Skin: E01/21/00/000/0000 (yes, I know it looks flat in the pictures, I guess because everything else was quite dark the camera didn't really pick up on skin contrasts. not that I'm a crappy photographer or anything!)
Boots: E79/39/97/99
Reds: R59/37/35/32
Yellows: YR24, Y35, YR15, Y21
Blues: B99/97/95/93/91
Hair: E47/44/34/42

I'd like to enter these challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Any Celebration
The Crazy Challenge - Tons of Shapes
Digital Tuesday - Include a non-craft item
A Spoonful Of Sugar - die cuts or punches
Crafty Calendar (monthly) - birthdays 
Papertake - sparkly
Craft Your Passion - Sparkles

7 Kids College Fund - Birthday projects

This is my second post today, please scroll down for my fun-fun card!!

Two weeks have flown by and it's time for another challenge at 7 Kids College Fund challenge blog. This time we have a very simple theme - any BIRTHDAY project.

I attempted to make a bit more "grown-up" card for a friend who does not appreciate cutesey stuff much. So out came one of WOJ City Girls - the stamp is called WILLOW WITH COFFEE TO GO - and distress inks.

I used the papers from Basic Grey Olivia pad - just the right pinks and blacks.

The crystal swirls are from Zva Creative. The sentiment is from WOJ set PARTY SAYINGS.

I gave Willow some added glam with Sakura Stardust pen on her hair and black glaze Gelly Roll pen on her glasses.

This card fits also into following challenges:
 Papertake Weekly - Sparkly and Bright
Flourishes - Anything goes but buttons and bows 
Pals Paper Arts - Bring on the Bling 
Lexi's Creations - Birthdays
Craft Your Passion - bling, sparkles or glitter 
The Sweet Stop - Sketch 

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Just for fun challenge at Make It Crafty

Some time ago Zoe from Make It Crafty invited me to take part in Just For Fun part of the challenges at Make It Crafty Blog. I am smitten by the gorgeous background digis in her shop and since it's just once a month I happily said YES!! lol

This month the theme is Vintage or Distressed and there's also a lovely sketch to follow. The last part I totally forgot but somehow my card came together very close to the sketch all on it's own. :D

As you can see I took the FOR FUN part quite literally and went happily mad.

This time the image is purely a Copic job. No other mediums added.

I thought that this poor zombie (he's a freebie, btw, so snap him up) was more pathetic than scary, hence the idea for the sentiment.

I merged the zombie with the forlorn Aussie Outback background and added a sentiment in Photoshop. Then I had mad fun colouring it all up and lost the track of markers I used about 15 minutes in - I suspect I used every single brown I own and LOTS of other shades. It was a blissfully messy project.

I used plenty of different distressing techniques here - sanding, sponging, rouging up the edges with scissors, crimping the paper, metallic rubons...

The papers are from DCWV and I added dew drops, some pins and jute string as finishing touches.

So come on, play along - for the fun of it! And a prize ... of course, lol.

I'd like to enter these challenges
Oh la la - Scary Stuff
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Simon Says Stamp & Show Something Spooky 
Cards for Men - Anything Goes, as long as it is for a male
Flourishes - Anything goes but buttons and  bows

Celebrations at PCP

Phindy's group at PCP is now over 1000 members are the celebrations are in full blow!!
Today there is a sketch challenge and a the prize is a box of handmade Christmas cards made by the DT - how cool is that!

Here is one of my contributions:

I've been trying to play with monochromatic colouring a bit and this card is one of the results. :(

The image from Phindy's shop is coloured with Copics (the whole E40ties range) and Prismacolour pencils.

I tried to make it look as vintagey as I could and was also going for a fairly flat card so it would be easier to mail. I am contributing two cards and made enveloboxes for both, all you need to do is pop the address or just name on and you're sorted.

Sentiment stamp is from Whiff Of Joy and papers are Graphic 45. A lot of Vintage Photo Distress inks involved as well.

I'd also like to enter these challenges:

Copic Creations - blending pen tricks (the texture on coat, sky, soft lines on landscape etc.)
Crafty Pad - Christmas
Fresh Brewed Challenges - Sweet Treats
For Fun Challenges - Color Challenge: Red, Brown & Cream

Frosted Designs - Let's See Your Die Cuts!

Sentimental Sundays - Distressing

This is gonna be a short post - my little inkling of cold has now developed into full blown flu and all I want is to go and crash into the bed!

The challenge is Distressing at Sentimental Sundays and I've been playing with Fancy Frames again. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, the set is called Trimming the Tree.

I distressed the edges using Versamark, sparkly embossing powder and then my scissors.

The sentiment panel is covered in matte medium first, then printed and embossed with white detail powder and finally I printed the frame and embossed with puffy embossing powder.

The flower is cut out from Basic Grey Jovial paper and adorned with pearly stamens and some red microbeads.

The swirls are made using Viva Pearl Pen on acetate. I let them dry overnight and then cut out.

I used Mercy's sketch again - boy do I love those!!

Challenges I'm entering:
Flourishes - sentiment the main focus
Scrap-Creations - Christmas
Charizma Cards - Vintage
corrosive Challenges - no white paper
Christmas card challenge - include flowers

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!!
Hugs

Stamp Something - Digi Day

Hooray, it's Digi Day again at Stamp Something and I got to play with this gorgeous image from Prairie Fairy.


I do love the image and am reasonably OK with the Copic work but I have to admit that I absolutely hate that card. You see, I saw a gorgeous sketch at Mojo Monday and decided to try it out and everything just went downhill from there. (sulks)

There are bits I like about it though - the burgundy gingham I finally hunted down (expect to see it a lot, I bought 4 yards!), bakers twine (love of my life, don't tell hubby) and the frosted branches under the poinsettia (which went horribly wrong).

I made these branches with tacky glue, floral wire and a new cool Silver Flower Soft. It's absolutely gorgeous and MUCH cooler irl than on the photos!!

In short, there's a lot of elements about that card that I love but the overall result totally sucks!

Now, I'm still gonna enter some challenges:
Stampin' Royalty - ribbons
Wild Flower Patch - twine 
Cinema Saturday - something hand cut or die cut
Flutter By Wednesdays - Open
Creative Card Crew - Fairy Tales
Bah Humbug - Elegance
Fussy and Fancy - Winter Wonderland

Phindy's Challenge - favorite colour

Hi, folks and happy Friday to you all!

Phindy's Place group at PCP has now over 1000 members and THE CELEBRATIONS START TODAY!! There's loads of contests, activities, even a treasure hunt and believe me, the prizes are FAB!!! Believe me, you'd be wise to head over and join the fun - maybe you can combine some of the competitions with Phindys Challenge too!!

This week at Phindy's Challenge the theme is Your Favorite Colour. Thing is, I don't really HAVE a favorite colour, at least consciously not. I like a lot of colours and certain shades but I can not say that, for example, blue is my favorite.

What I did instead is that I picked out one of my favored colour combos - teal/turquoise and deep golden yellow with deep cream/kraft.


I really like that image - just imagine how hard it would be to blow your nose if it had to travel the whole length of a trunk!!! lol To make it as co-ordinated as possible, I paper pieced a lot and let the papers do most of the work. Not much embellishing going on - just didn't want to cover too much. Besides, I had at least an ambition that this could be unisex card.

The papers, btw, are Cosmo Cricket Togetherness and it's one of those pads I love TOO much, which means that I have to make myself to use it. Otherwise I'd just "save" it! lol

I also rediscovered my forgotten Fiskars Threading Water border punch - it's so lovely and versatile in it's simplicity!!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Stampin' Royalty - ribbons
Wild Flower Patch - twine
Sweet Stampin - ribbon
Papertake Weekly - sketch

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Just playing...

My wonderful DT buddy and talented designer Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs) just recently awed me with a set of new Nestabilitie-friendly digital stamps called Dressed Up Shapes. I love those to bits and had to have a play as soon as I could. The stamp I used is called Leafy Frame and I put in the sentiment from the set called Amongst the Stars Sentiments.

And when I said "playtime" I really meant that I played a lot, lol. I tried a lot of different looks before settling to that one and spent about 3.5 hours making that fairly simple card. Yup. That's me. Inefficient and quite OK with it.

I printed the frame onto pearlescent paper first and glittered using Stickum Powder (it's an embossing powder like substance that becomes an adhesive when heated, similar one is Sticky Stuff by Judikins and Heat and Stick by Stampin' Up), then heat set it again to firmly keep the glitter in place. Next I printed the sentiment into the frame and embossed with clear detail powder. I sponged some Antique linen all over the panel to take the crisp whiteness away - and that's pretty much it.

I printed the frame at 8.4 cm width, that makes a lovely fit for second biggest Nestability matching die.

I used pearly paper because due to it's coated surface ink dries very slowly on it, so embossing is possible. If you don't have pearlescent paper, just cover ANY paper with thin coat of Matte Medium, let it dry (or blast with heat gun if you're anything like me...) and you're good to go. There's A LOT of fun to be had with glitter, embossing powders and digital stamps!

The papers are from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry collection and the felt stars I found in a neglected box of Christmas decorations.

Sweet Sunday Sketch - sketch
Crafty Pad - Distressed or Torn Edges
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Focus on the Sentiment

Sentimental Sundays - Black, white and one other colour.

I was a bit intimidated when I saw the theme of black, White And One Other Colour at Sentimental Sundays. I don't really have black and white patterned papers so I had to dig quite deep in my stash.

I decided that the third colour is going to be dark gold, distressed all the edges with embossing ink and gold embossing powder. Then I covered a piece of Bazzill just The Edge with glue pad and glitter. I used the glue pad because it won't make the card buckle.

Kenny K image was coloured with warm grey Copics and little bits of warm grey Prismacolour pencils added for deeper shadows. The sentiment is from Eat Cake graphics.

The black panel was embossed with Cuttlebug houndstooth folder and then sponged with white ink.

I would like to enter following challenges:

One card, two challenges

I think it's my first time ever doing that but this card is for two challenges:
Phindy's Place - Fancy Folds
Stamp Something - Halloween Something

The cute ghost is, of course, from Phindy's shop - I just think it's hilarious the way he eyes the little dog very suspiciously! Colouring is done with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils (VERY little of the latter added). And the sentiment is from Raindrop Echo's Halloween Sentiments digi set at Whimsy. LOVE that set!!

The papers are MME, a surprise discovery in my stash after long whining that I don't have any Halloween papers.

Remember how I said in my previous post that I used ALMOST all my home made leaves up on one card - well, that's where the remaining two went, lol. I distressed all the papers with Memento Cantaloupe and Potters Clay and made some grass with MS border punch.

The bat is a freebie clip art I printed out, smeared with Stickles, blasted with heat gun and then gave him some eyes with white gel pen and black Copic Multiliner. Moon with bats is also a freebie clip art - ain't internet great!!

I would like to enter following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Change of Season
Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge - Fancy Folds
Oh la la - Nothing Floral
Crafts and Me Challenge - Halloween

Stampin' For The Weekend - Halloween or fall

I decided to choose an option to make a all card for Stampin' For The Weekend design team. And there's a reason for that.

You see, couple of weeks ago I was admiring some cool leaves on The Funkie Junkie (Linda) blog. She sprays die cut leaves (and flowers) with the mixture of distress ink, water and perfect pearls and then crumples them. So there I was, whingeing that I don't have any leaf dies and can't try it out and life is hard and economy sucks...yadda-yadda-yadda. Suffice to say she must have got sick of me since this week I received an envelope full of die cuts from her. LOL

Well, I grabbed the envelope, rushed upstairs and attacked them with about gazillion hues of Shimmerz Spritz. And crumpled. And heat gunned. And sprayed AGAIN. Note: RUBBER GLOVES ARE YOUR FRIENDS.

Anyway, the problem is I liked them so much I went a bit mad and plopped almost all the ones I made onto one card. As a result we have a gorgeous Autumn Harvest Ride carousel horse FLOATING on whooping pile of oversized leaves.

Hmmm. Still like the leaves though. They don't look as nice on photos as they do irl, kinda loose their "leafiness" and just seem like shiny heap on crumpled paper. Photographer I am not.

And since I was at it, I shimmerspritzed the background for the horse and all the rest of papers on the card as well. Which, if I am not mistaken, are from now out-of-business Rusty Pickle.

The harvest horse (love him!!) was printed on watercolour paper, washed under the tap, dried with heat gun and then painted with DIstress Inks. Of course I added some Sakura Stardust as well. It's not like I'm mortally ill or something.

The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo's Autumn Sentiments digi set at Whimsy Stamps. It's distressed with Shimmerz paints, quite excessively so. I chose Shimmerz because they do not make inkjet ink run. I'm cunning like that. lol

Now, that was a long and boring post, sorry. All that remains is to enter some challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Change of Season
Kaboodle Doodles - Celebrate the Colors of Fall
The Shabby Tea Room - Pumpkin Patch
Stampavie and More - autumn
Bunny Zoe's Crafts (2nd monday) - autumn love
Stamps R Us - all nature theme

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Flowers and Layers

Now this is my sort of a challenge this week at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog!! My cards usually weigh a ton with all the layers and some flowers tend to almost always sneak on...mysteriously.

As the autumn with all it's damp and resulting colds/flu is upon us, I decided to make a standby Get Well card. Whiff Of Joy has the most adorable Get well collection and I used SICK HENRY I just received from my wonderful blog friend Dorcas. By "just received" I mean - out of envelope, quickly coloured with Prismacolor pencils and onto a card. lol

The papers are from Sassafras Lass, all paper pierced and faux stitched with Sakura Stardust pen. Flowers are from Prima, perked up with wooden buttons and raffia. BTW, if ever you want to work with raffia then GLUE GUN IS YOUR FRIEND!!! :D

All the edges are sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink, corners and sentiment circle finished off with little pearls.

I used a sketch from WOJ Challenge because it was just what I needed - loads of layers! :)

I'd like to enter following challenges:
Crafty Pad - Make Something for a Friend
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Buttons, Flowers & Friend
Kaboodle Doodles - Celebrate the Colors of Fall
Charsima Cardz - Autumn Colors

Sentimental Sundays - TAGS and a DT call

Before I move on to my project I just wanted to share good news - Sentimental Sundays is having a DT call until Oct. 18th!! So if you want to have fun crafting in a very friendly bunch, check the details out on the challenge blog.

I have had that Penny Black stamp set with whimsical animals for 12 days of Christmas for a while and never used it - so this year my goal is to make a set of tags with it. Good thing Sentimental Sundays had challenge theme "tags" to get me started, lol

I used a kraft luggage tag as a base, stamped it with Life Defined stamp from Whimsy STamps in Tea Dye first and then with big poinsettias from Vintage Christmas set in Vintage Photo ink. I sponged the edges with Vintage Photo too.

Then I stamped the image and some small poinsettias from Vintage Christmas set on kraft card, coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and cut out. The fancy sentiment label is from Whiff Of Joy.

Little tag on the ribbon flower is stamped with gift label stamp from the same Vintage Christmas set and cut out with Spellbinders tag die.

The swirls and random pearls are all done with Viva Pearl Pen in Gold. Tiny bit of pleated patterned paper is from Crate Paper. To make sure nothing will fall off in a pile of presents under the tree I stuck the whole thing together with glue gun. It's REALLY sturdy now, lol.

I'm pretty happy how this tag came out and I sure had fun putting it together.

I'd like to enter following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Hooray for the Holidays
Creative Cottage Challenge - Bling it On
For Fun Challenges - Use something from your stash that you bought and never used
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Tagalicious

I coloured the image with distress inks and drowned in Stickles. The sentiment was computer-generated and then accented with Sakura Stardust pens and cut out with Spellbinders Fancy Tags.

PHINDY'S CHALLENGE - SOMETHING CUTE

There is NO lack of cute images when Phindy's art is involved so this wasn't tricky at all!!! I have couple of little boy birthdays coming up so I chose to make a very understated and simple card. I haven't decided yet who is going to get it so I wil put the name on later.
The image was coloured with Copics and Prismacolour pencils and sponged with distress inks.
The papers are from Basic Grey Oliver pad, all the stitching is done by hand with embroidery thread.
