Zombies need love too

Running a little late with my Dilly Beans Stamps DT Card, but it's the perfect opportunity for me to remind you that you've still got 4 days to join in our challenge.

Our challenge theme is BLACK & WHITE

Here's my creation;
Ok I was a little naughty and added a splash of pink, but everyone love pink don't they? For my card I used the rather sad looking 230 Monster Boy along with the Zombies need love too sentiment.
My Monster Boy is colour with Faber Castell PITT Pens.  For my background I grabbed a selection of my favourite black, white and pink patterned washi tapes and covered the card from with them.  I then matted my image onto some black and then white cardstock.  As a final embellishment I added a cute pink wooden heart button.

I love how this card turned out, and it makes me want to create more backgrounds with my washi tape, it so quick and easy, and fun.

Fancy joining in our challenge, all you need do is grab a Dilly Beans Stamp and some black and white crafting goodies, and have fun.  Hope you'll have time to play along with us.

Time for Tea in Wonderland with Sweet Pea Stamps

Today I'd like to share with you my Sweet Pea Stamps DT project I created using one of the gorgeous red rubber stamps from the Sweet Pea Stamp Store, I used the beautiful Gabbie Alice in Wonderland by Amanda S Byron.

You can't beat the quality of these rubber stamps, they stamp beautifully time after time, such a joy to work with.  I stamped Gabbie Alice in Wonderland in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink before colouring her with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers.  I decided to go with a muted colour palette, and teamed my image up with papers from Dovecraft's Curiosity Corner. 

As you can see I fussy cut my image before adding her to my card.  I had great fun creating my wee scene on this project.  Using chevron patterned paper for my little hillside, and pretty floral paper for my trees, the tree trunks are cut from a tape measure detail on the chevron patterned paper.  I love using different elements from a piece of paper to create part of my project.  I distressed the edges of all my patterned papers with my Making Memories Distressing Tool (such a handy wee tool), before layering them onto my card.

To embellish my card I went for some baker's twine combined with a teapot and watch charm, and a beautiful red heart button.  For my sentiment I grabbed my favourite alphabet stickers, and added them to my trees.

You can get this gorgeous image and lots more of Amanda's beautiful images in gorgeous red rubber stamps right now in the Sweet Pea Stamps Store.

Thank You for visiting with me today, Bye for now

Happy Birthday Bear with Dilly Beans Stamps and a new challenge...

The Dilly Beans Stamps Design Team is back with a new challenge following our nice long winter break, and our challenge theme is 'GREEN'

I love the combination of Green and Purple, so had great fun with this card.  This super cute image is called Aidynn's Bear Framed; It was my Mum's birthday last week, and she loves the colour purple and bears, so i knew this was going to be the perfect card for her.
I started to colour this image with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils, but unfortunately my hands hurt so much using them I had to change back to my Letraset Promarkers.  I still love the finished image, and think the contrast between pens and pencils looks quite nice.  My Mum loved it too, so that was the most important thing.

You have two weeks to join in our challenge over at the Dilly Beans Stamps Challenge Blog, and we'd love to see your creations there. Hop over to check out the challenge rules and regs, and to see the gorgeous Green creations from the rest of our awesome DT.

That's all from me for today, Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely Mums in the UK, hope you have a wonderful day.

Soar with Sweet Pea Stamps

Today I'd like to share with you my Sweet Pea Stamps DT project I've made featuring one of the gorgeous image by The East Wind, which you can now get in both digital and rubber stamp format in the Sweet Pea Stamp Store.  I chose to get a little Steampunky with 'Lucy Loo - Voyager II'
As you can see Lucy Loo is ready to soar up into the sky on some amazing adventure.  I coloured this gorgeous girl with my Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of a little white gel pen for highlights.  I coloured her to go with the 'Somewhere in Time' Collection of papers and embellishments by Bo Bunny.
To embellish my card I added some die cuts and chipboard elements from the Bo Bunny collection, along with some Gold Satin Ribbon Roses, and Star Gems.  I used a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket for my sentiment, which seemed pretty appropriate for the image.
Have you visited the Sweet Pea Stamps Store recently, as we have lots of amazing artists, and new images are added almost every day, so there is so much to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice.  Want to know about flash sales and discount codes? Make sure your a member of the Sweet Pea Stamps Friends & Fan Facebook Group and you'll have all the latest news.

Don't Worry Be Happy!!

Today I'd like to share with you my project featuring an image by one of the artists who recently joined Sweet Pea StampsSandra Caldwell has a wonderful fun and whimsical style of drawing and today I'm sharing her Ladibug Gal with you all;

As you can see my Ladibug Gal has some funky colours going on, and a cool sentiment to complete the project.  I used Letraset Promarkers to colour this image, and combined it with papers from MME's Follow Your Heart-Be Amazing paper pad.  I used alphabet sticker from Simple Stories for my sentiment, and the smily face is a charm that came with some loom bands (I snipped off the jump ring).

You'll find this image along with lots more fun creations from Sandra in Digital Format in the Sweet Pea Stamps Store.

Dark Shores with Sweet Pea Stamps

Today I'd like to share with you all my Sweet Pea Stamps DT project featuring the work of this months featured artist Linda Biggs.  I chose to use the gorgeous 'Dark Shores' image, as it features a truly stunning mermaid;
The image title makes you think of the sun-setting, but I decided that I'd make it a sunrise, and combined it with some gorgeous sunshine papers and a 'Here comes the Sun' sentiment.  As soon as I saw this collection of paper I knew I had to add it to my stash it's called 'Radiant' by Authentique, and I love it.

My image is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, along with some Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen in White, here's a closer look;

You can find this image in both Rubber and Digital Format in the Sweet Pea Stamps Store, along with lots more beautiful images. Don't forget to hop over to the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of our very talented design team.

Thank you for visiting with me today, Hope you see lots of Sunshine this weekend!

Happy Birthday 

Today is a very special day as it's Susan Salyer's birthday; Birthday's are special, it's the one day of the year our loved ones get to tell us how much we mean to them and to celebrate our lives.  This year Susan might not be wanting to celebrate much, having recently lost her beloved mother; but this makes it all the more important that we let her know how much we love her, and that we are thinking of her on her special day.  Hope this wee blog hop brings a smile to your face Susan
For my card I used the beautiful 'Angel of Love' image by Helena Reis available at Sweet Pea Stamps.

I hope everyone enjoys our wee hop, and please leave some love on Susan's blog when you reach it at the end of our hop.
