Happy Easter to You All

Good morning to you all and Happy Easter

Do hope you are not feeling to sick yet!!!!!

I needed to send to a very special friend an Easter card and had a set of the Hobby House Mo Manning Strawberry Wishes Toppers which contains one of the most gorgeous images just perfect for Easter on it, the image itself is called "Savannah on Easter", I have the digital image that I purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop here, so knowing that I did not have to spend time colouring up the card image as it is beautifully coloured, I decided to make a candle, so printed out the digital image onto my tissue paper and coloured it too match the topper with my copics.

So this is what I created for my special friend
I used some new wax paper from Joanna Sheen's called Cut-Rite Wax paper, it helps you with your fiddly die cuts when layered between the die and the card stock and is also mega impressive for candles.

Here is the card on it's own
I decorated the inside too

Here is the front on view
Recipe
Base layer and contrast is black card stock.
Papers are from the Kanban stack called Cream Soda, I got mine from Grimsby Crafts
The pretty lace is from the Hobby House although currently not in stock.
Hobby House Ribbon - Mixed Ribbon Pink Black 2
Hobby House Mulberry Roses - Medium Raspberry Truffle
Hobby House Mulberry Roses - Small Raspberry Truffle
Hobby House Pearls - 3mm Midnight Magic
Hobby House Pearls - 3mm Sugar and Spice
Grand Decorative Round Nestie and Banner/Ribbon Nestie and an old sentiment complete it.

Here is a close up of the image, this is the pre coloured topper

and the candle using the digital image and matching the colours used on the topper image, I used a white gel pen on the shoes after I had done the heating of the image to the candle.

I really enjoyed creating these and can see some more of these sets coming :) now I have that fabulous wax paper.

Here is my design team inspirational piece, however don't forget to hop on over and see what the rest of the amazing team have created to inspire you.

I made another Nellie Snellen image card :)

I used some dusky pink card for the base layer and the pink pages of those wonderful Me To You Christmas papers.  The edges have all been distressed and the base layer has been edged with a little watered down gesso.  Now I got a wonderful gift from the very talented Paula before Xmas and in the set was this wonderful net stuff (wedding spiders web, not sure what you really call it :( ) but I coated this with a layer of gesso too, both lots of gesso were then sprinkled with glitter and left to dry.  I  added one of the corners from Paula's lovely gift along with some ribbon a double bow and some pearls to finish off the card from the Hobby House, but then added a little flower and a charm, you know I just cannot help myself sometimes, but think it will still sit nicely in an envelope.

Here is a close up of the image, coloured in copics, with some Atyou glitter and stickles. I used a white gel pen to create the swirl on the lollipop.

Masculine Birthday Card

Morning to you all

Had such a hectic start to my 2013, that I forgot to show you this quick little number that I had to make at short notice, because I almost forgot my brother's birthday in all the excitement of the changes in my life.

So here is the card that I made him, for his 50th, and I really must find me some numerical dies, as could not add the 50 that I needed too, so these are now on my ever growing wish list.
I found these wonderful papers somewhere in my old stash.  Loved the motorbike, so then remembered that somewhere also I had some fabulous motorbike decoupage sheets.  So searched for them and located them, luckily they were die cut ones so no cutting out, sheer heaven for a quick card.  I added the decoupage to the nestie and used my new MS letter punches to get his name before adding the sentiment, ribbon and those lovely pearls from the Hobby House.

As you know I don't do masculine very well but was quite pleased with the quick result.
