Tag You’re It

Morning everyone! I’m in quarantine at the moment as my eldest (4 years old) has the dreaded chicken pox….I’m just hopping my littlest gets it to so that it’s all out of the way.

Anyhoo, it’s my turn to share over on the he Whiff of Joy Blog today for ‘the Tag You’re It Tuesday’ feature. Here is my creation using the Henry ‘Eat Cake’ Digi image:

I have been inspired by a card from the lovely Kuni’s blog. To see her card and for links to her blog please see the Whiff of Joy Blog.

Here is a close-up of cute little Henry

Also my apologies for the picture quality, my littlest has managed to break the camera card slot on my computer so I had to use my phone as a back up camera and although the camera is as good I think I wobble it when I hold it!

  • Image: Eat Cake from Whiff of Joy 
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • DP: Lili of the Valley Snow Princess Paper Pad
  • Card: Yellow and Kraft Card

Eat Cake

Eat Cake (3)

Morning All. The Birthday Party is done and dusted (and cleaned up after) so I thought I would share one of the 7 cards I had to make for my week of family birthdays. This card used the fabulous Eat Cake image from Whiff of Joy:

Eat Cake (2)

I’ve gone CAS on this one as I was running  out of time with party prep and didn’t want to have to spend time choosing papers and embellies (I’m a ditherer!!). With not a lot of time left before giving it to the recipient I only went and put Glossy Accents on the balloons…OMG what was I thinking. I had to put it above the radiator to help speed up the drying, and just prayed that it didn’t warp. Luckily it was all ok in the end :-)

Supplies:

  • Image: Eat Cake from Whiff of Joy
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • Card: Copic X-Press It Blending Card, Blue Card and Black Card
  • Sentiment: Freebie from Handmade by Paula (can be found here)
  • Embellishments: Glossy Accents

Lovely Irene

Evening all. I’m here to share a card I created for the Art by Miran DT Call. I was hoping to get it posted while the kids were having their tea but I started sorting out some of their toys and it snowballed into a massive tidy up. Oh well at least the house is looking ship shape for Saturdays Birthday Party, just got to get cracking on the Pass the Parcel wrapping tomorrow!

I have loads of Art by Miran images coloured up, due to using them as practice for the Skin & Hair classes over at Kit & Clowder (they all have fabulous hair – which is what I need to practice most), but none of them have actually made it onto a card…until now. This card uses Lovely Irene:

Love Irene (1)

I have tried to keep the layout nice and simple with minimal embellishments as the image is so  beautiful. Here is a close up, although don’t look at her arms…the shading is awful. I blame my E11 Copic as it was in need of both cleaning and refilling!

Love Irene (3)

I would love to be on the Art by Miran team as I love the images, I’m a sucker for anything cute, especially in the Big Eye Anime style, and these images  fit the bill. Also I love love love to colour (am currently improving my skills in the classes over at Kit & Clowder) and these images are perfect and there are so many to choose from I could lose a whole weekend colouring! 

Currently I am lucky enough to design for a UK papercraft magazine (Papercraft Essentials) and the following teams: Pink Gem Designs, Little Claire (Digi Stamp Team) and Whiff of Joy (Digi Stamp Team)

Supplies:

  • Image: Lovely Irene from Art by Miran
  • Colouring Medium: Copics
  • DP: First Edition Spring Bloom 6x6 Pad
  • Card: Black card, Neenah Solar White Card and Copic X-Press It Blending Card
  • Stamps: Kraftin Kimmie ‘Make a Wish’ Stamp Set
  • Dies & Punches: Go Kreate Oval Dies and an EK Border Punch
  • Embellishments: Flat back pearls

Fairy Princess

Night All. I’m back….a little later than planned but we have had a fabulous day celebrating my Little Princess’ 2nd Birthday. Although I should call her the Queen really as she is celebrating again on Saturday and we are having a big family party. Here is the card I made her also with the Tiddly Inks DT Call in mind…

Wryn Fairy Wishes (4)

Emily is a proper girly girly. All ready she likes dressing up, and playing with toy tiaras, wands and jewellery so I just had to use the adorable Fairy Wishes Wryn. I have been practicing that hair flicking again….Miss Alyce has us in colouring boot camp over at Kit & Clowder and I think it’s starting to pay off (with lot’s of practice!!!). Here’s a close up of the image…

Wryn Fairy Wishes (2)

Quite a simple layout but I have used alphas and a hand cut/glittered number 2 to add a personal touch…I love to do that for close family. And if my Little Princess turns out like my Little Prince she will want to keep the special cards…he has all the Christmas and Birthday cards I have given him so far in a box!

Well that’s enough waffle from me! I don’t feel that tired at the moment, but come morning I will regret the lack of sleep and I need my energy to make the house presentable and getting this party finished off.

Supplies:

  • Image: Fairy Wishes Wryn by Tiddly Inks
  • Colouring Medium: All Copics - my collection is growing steadily ;-)

  • DP: Lili of the Valley Timeless Victorian Papers

  • Card: Navy Blue Linen Textured card and Copic X-Press It card

  • Dies & Punches: Spellbinders Floral Ovals, MFT Rolled Roses, MS Border Punch, X-Cut Corner Rounder and X-Cut Square Punch

  • Embellishments: Paper Roses, Loose Glitter , Stickles, Clear Gem, Pom Pom Trim, Wooden Heart and Newsprint Alphas (coloured with Copics)
