Time to Retreat into My Dream Room

Woo Hoo!  It's Friday, I love saying that. Time to share another Raise the Bar Challenge card with you, this weeks challenge is...
Be inspired by your bedroom colors, or if you prefer, any other room in your home!
Well i cheated a little with my card, and stretched the theme to include my 'dream' bedroom, cos my real one is a work in progress to say the least! 

I'm sure it comes as no surprise to you that i dream of a pretty pink bedroom; I'm such a girlie at heart!  So I wanted to create a pretty pink card, which made you feel relaxed and dreamy.  My main image is the adorable Cheeky Glamour from the Cheeky Cherry Collection at The Greeting Farm  I coloured her with my promarkers.

The Pink Card blank I found in my stash, and the paper is a scrap leftover from a sheet of the Dovecraft Retro Flowers Paper Pack.  To finish my card off I created a pearl frame around the main image, using pink flatback pearls and micro glue dots.

Hopefully one day i'll have a bedroom that goes with this card, but for now, the card will have to do.
Thanks you for visiting, and Have a wonderful Friday all:)

Feeling Inspired with the Groovy Gurlz

It's Thursday again, so it's time to get Groovy with the StampInsanity Groovy Gurlz.  This week we were given this aweseome picture to get inspiration from, are those colours wild or what?  The challenge is nice and simple, make a card or project inspired by the picture.

As soon as I saw the picture, I thought of these papers by MM, I love how the blue graduates and blends into the orange.  So I decided to paper piece most of the adorable Lita, I printed her out, and using my lightbox, I drew her hair onto the plain graduating paper (I did this twice to get two layers, so that you can see the colour change more) I then used star graduation paper for her outfit, using the bottom of the page for her jeans, and the top of the page for her top,

My background is another patterned paper from MM, which looks like a notebook with lots of orange writing and doodling on it.  I decided to colour this with my prismacolour pencils, taking my colour choices from the inspiration picture.  I then simply layered all the pieced onto a peach card blank, and added some little gems for a bit of sparkle.


Now you really need to go and see what the rest of the Groovy Gurlz did with this inspiration piece, cos they really Rocked this challenge

 
Thanks for visiting, and remember to post your challenge to the StampInsanity Blog, for your chance to win some free digis

Oh, Alice someones stole the Queen tarts or is it cake???


"On this the White Rabbit blew three blasts on the trumpet,
and then unrolled the parchment scroll,
and read as follows:
"The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,
All on a summer day:
The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts,
And took them quite away!"
Oh dear, it looks like someones stolen the Queens Tarts, or in this case her cake!  This weeks Oh, Alice! is quite simple all you have to do is incorporate food into your card.  Well as soon as i saw this gorgeous 'Eat Cake' image from Busy Beauties Boutique i knew it was perfect for this challenge.

I used this lovely strawberry patterned paper that i got free with a magazine last year, along with some scraps of blue, and a green card blank.  I printed my image twice, using one for a background and the other to decoupage on top.  I then inked the background print with distressing ink, and heat embossed with clear powder.  My cake image is then coloured with promarkers, and cut and stuck to the background print.  I layered this onto another scrap of blue card, and then stuck it to the card with some foam pads.  To finish the whole thing off I added some paper pricking around the edges.

Edit: I've also entered this card for this weeks Fussy and Fancy Challenge, which is to create a birthday card with some sort of 'sweet treat' on it.  I think this yummy cake qualifies :)

Anya meets Macabre Monday Music Mayhem!!!

Ok, so this is a little different for me, but boy did i have fun making this card for this weeks Macabre Monday Challenge over at Haunted Design House.  This weeks challenge is 'Music Mayhem' and you have to make a card or project with a gothic creepy feel based on a song.

As soon as I saw this challenge one of my favourite songs sprang into my head, and I got the idea to make a not so cute card with Dress Up Anya.  I used the Rose stamp from the Pretty Hat set by The Greeting Farm

Have you guessed What the song is?  Well here are the lyrics to put you out of your misery, tehe!


Where the Wild Roses Grow – Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue

CHORUS:
They call me The Wild Rose
But my name was Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name was Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
They grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped the tears that ran down my face

CHORUS

On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, 'Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?'

On the second day he came with a single rose
Said: 'Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?'
I nodded my head, as I layed on the bed
He said, 'If I show you the roses will you follow?'

CHORUS

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, 'All beauty must die'
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

CHORUS.

I hope i've not scared you too much, and that you'll come back tomorrow to see this weeks Groovy creation.

The papers and chipboard tag and shapes are from the Dovecraft 'Retro Flowers' Range.

Venture into Wonderland with Friends Having Fun & Pixie Dust Studio!!

Today is the very first Pop Culture Challenge @ Friends Having Fun, so the Pop Culture Princesses and I ventured into Wonderland to bring you some Alice in Wonderland inspired projects.  The challenge is sponsored by the awesome Pixie Dust Studio; Have you seen there Down the Rabbit Hole Collection of images? If not your really must, they are gorgeous, and I had great fun playing with Alice for my card.

For my card i used the Alice image from Pixie Dust Studio, which i printed out twice, using one image as my background and base image, and decoupaging the other Alice on top to create a little depth.  I drew a little scene on the background print to create my idea of Wonderland.  I then coloured my images with a mixture of promarkers and prismacolour pencils.  I then chose papers from the Prima 'Make Me Happy' Collection to coordinate with my images.  The sentiment comes from Sassy Studio Designs' Adventures in SassyLand Sentiment Set.

Want some more inspiration? Then pop along to the Friends Having Fun site to see the Wonderful creations by the rest of the Pop Culture Princesses. Not only is it a fun challenge, but there are free digis to be won by one lucky participant!  To Win all you have to do is show us your Alice in Wonderland inspired creation!

Raise the Bar - What Colour is your Bar?

This week's challenge is all about Colours, Favourite Colours....
COLOR ME HAPPY!

Very fun, show us your favorite color on a card or project! I would love to see your favorite color shown in different hues, you may pair it with neutrals, and if you really really want to add on a complimentary color then it's okay. ;)
Anyone who knows me, knows that my favourite colour is Pink, the Brighter the better; you'll also know i have a slightly wacky side too, and love anything a little different.  That's why i couldn't resist this gorgeous Stitchy Sally Boo image created by the amazingly talented Ozzy of OzzyInkz , you have to check out his blog!


Another fairly simple card from me today, I'm working with such wonderful images at the moment, that all I want to do is colour them and make them the focal point of my cards.  I printed Sally Boo out and coloured her with my promarkers, and some prismacolour pencils.  I then found these two great dotty papers in my stash, so I used them to create a very simple backdrop.  I then took some pink tissue paper, and drew a couple of clouds onto it, cut them out, crumpled them up, smoothed them out and ran them through a Xyron machine to add adhesive to the back; then i stuck them to my card.  To finish my card off, I added some faux stitching, and a simple handwritten sentiment.

Not sure how pretty you would say this card is, but it's definately Pink!  I can't wait to see what you favourite colour is, don't forget to visit the Raise the Bar Blog, and show us your creations.

Happy Earth Day!!

Just a quick post to share with you fun Earth Day card i made this afternoon.  Isn't that the cutest image? It's a wonderful Freebie from Kathy at Pixie Dust Studio's; make sure you visit the her blog to get it, before it's gone.

Fancy some Groovy Altering?

Good Morning all,  It's time for another StampInsanity Challenge, and this weeks challenge is to 
 
Create or Alter a Box or Picture Frame

 I decided to alter this wooden pencil box i'd been given as a present (Thank You Ju); I had already painted it with a dark pink pearlescent acrylic paint, but had not decided how i wanted to decorate it.

I love the sentiment i used from Les Coquettes Set, but i thought i would pair it with Zeke & Maddie this time to create a special little keepsake box.

I printed my sentiment and images out, trimmed them to fit the box lid, and then clear embossed them to protect them a little.  I then ran them through my Xyron machine to add adhesive to the back, and stuck them to the box.  I then stuck a row of square pink rhinestone gems around the top edge of the lid to add a bit of bling.

I decided to keep the rest of the box fairly simple, so I cut 3 strips of pink ribbon and 1 of black to fit around the box and the box lid.  I stuck double sided sticky tape to the back of the ribbons, this made it really easy to stick the ribbons on the box.  I stuck 2 strips of pink ribbon on the main body of the box, side by side, and added the black ribbon over the join.  I added a large paper rose to cover the ends of ribbon.  Before attaching the ribbon around the lid, i had to remove the clasp and the hinges from the lid, I then stuck the ribbon in place, and reattached the clasp and hinges, gives it a lovely neat finish.

I spent a little more time on this project than on most, but i think it was worth it, and to be honest most of the time i was waiting for glue to dry :)

Hope you find time to play along with us. One more thing before I go...

Go Green with Pixie Dust Studio

Well after winning last week's Pixie Dust Studio Challenge, i had to play again this week, and I used the gorgeous Princess and Pea image that i received as my prize.  This weeks challenge was to create a mainly green card.

I kept my card very simple. I used a pale yellow card blank for my base, then added a couple of piece of green paper that I had leftover from other projects, to create a background.  Then i added my Princess and Pea image; I printed it quite large as I wanted it to be the focal point of the card, I printed two copies so that I could decoupage the image a little.  I coloured both images in with my promarkers, I added a little prismacolour pencil to the hair.  To finish the card i did a simple faux stitched border on the bottom piece of background paper, and stamped my sentiment directly onto it.

A very quick and simple card, but it was great fun to make. Make sure you take time to visit the Pixie Dust Studio Blog today as there is a wonderful freebie available.

Oh, Alice! Look at that Caterpillar!!!

This week the Oh, Alice! Challenge is a Sketch Challenge, designed by Tasha.  I decided to combine this challenge with the Busy Beauties Creation Station's Inaugural Challenge: Alice In Wonderland. Any excuse to make an Alice inspired card.

I chose this adorable Caterpillar image for this card, isn't he the cutest?  The papers and card were all scraps that were lying around my craft table, I really do like the main background paper, love the honeycomb pattern.

Not really much else to say about this card, except it is coloured with promarkers, and a little mustard seed distress ink. I had real fun with this, a really nice sketch and image to work with, what more could you want on a Sunday Afternoon.

Let's Get Sketchy with the Groovy Gurlz :)

Yipheeeeee it's Thursday again, so it's time to get your Groove on with the Groovy Gurlz @ StampInsanity.  I love Thursday's,  I get that wonderful it's nearly the weekend feeling, and i get to share some cards with my Groovy Gurlz.

This week's challenge is a Sketch Challenge, so our mission was to interpret the sketch and create a groovy card.

I wanted to make a bright and cheerful card, and these papers from Prima's 'Make me Happy' Collection were perfect for the task. I chose three papers from the collection and played out with them to follow the sketch.  I decided to use the super cute Maddie as she looks very happy in her pretty dress. 

My sentiment for the card was inspired by the red background paper, as it's got lots of little quotes, about being happy and having fun and enjoying the little things in life.  So i decided to go for 'Don't Worry Be Happy', the perfect sentiment for this card.  I added the smily sunshine, cos you've got to remember to Smile!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope to have time to get your Groove on, because we love to see your challenge creations. Have a great Thursday!!

Friends Having Fun with Chester

Hello Peeps, Hope your all having a fun Monday, I am, I've been playing.  It's Friends Having Fun first Sketch Challenge this week, so I decided to play along.  It was a great sketch to follow, and worked perfectly with the image i wanted to use today.

Let me introduce you to Chester Cheshire isn't he gorgeous!  I was lucky enough to win him in the Busy Beauties Boutique Blog Hop . I've only just discovered Busy Beauties Boutique.  They have some wonderful digistamps, including some Alice in Wonderland inspired beauties  which were released this weekend.  If you like Alice in Wonderland then you have to check them out, as they are a little scarier than the norm, and I love them.

I had real fun with this card, i used a mix of Dovecraft and DCWV papers from my stash.  I then printed and coloured Chester Cheshire with my promarkers, and a little prismacolour pencil for the hightlights.  I then distressed the edge of Chester and ran a pink promarker around the edge to tie it into the card a little more.  I added three pink flower embellishments to the bottom of the card as per the sketch.  I felt it needed a little more embellishment, so i added a row of pearls down the pink strip of paper i'd layered onto my card.

Not sure how scary Chester looks on this card, but i think he's been smoking the Catepillar's pipe, tehe!!

Farm Fresh Friday does some Spring Cleaning...

It's been a while since i took part in the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge at The Greeting Farm, so i decided to make time for this weeks challenge, which is...
SPRING CLEANING.

"Use something you either:
 a.) found that you forgot you had or 
b.) were going to throw OUT but decided to use it for this challenge." 

This was a fairly easy challenge for me as my DH spent some of this week sorting out bits and pieces that were lying around our living room, and this included quite a bit of crafting stuff.  So i went through the box he'd given me and found the following items..
  • Pale pink card blank
  • Die cut Birthday Sentiment
  • 3 Die cut Hearts
  • A small piece of pink and green striped ribbon.
These all looked quite good together, so instead of binning them, i used them for my card.  I played around with the diecuts until i was happy with the layout i came up with, i then stuck them to the card blank with some foam pads. I then added the ribbon, tied a neatish knot and trimmed the ends.


I then chose my main image; yep a completely back to front card for me, as i usually know which image i'm going to use before anything else.  I had a look through my TGF Digital Images on my pc and came across Audrey;I hadn't had a chance to print her out until now, and decided that she would look great on this card.


I printed Audrey out, and coloured her with promarkers and prismacolour pencils.  I trimmed the image to fit the card, and added a litte pricking to two of the corners.  I then stuck Audrey to the card, using foam pads to give her some height and dimension.


I resisted the temptation to add anything else to the card, afterall Audrey doesn't seem like a pearls or flowers type of girl.

CHAPTER 8: You can learn a lot of things from the FLOWERS....and Wings!!

'Never mind!' Alice said in a soothing tone, and stooping down to the daisies, who were just beginning again, she whispered, `If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!'

There was silence in a moment, and several of the pink daisies turned white.
`That's right!' said the Tiger-lily. `The daisies are worst of all. When one speaks, they all begin together, and it's enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on!'
`How is it you can all talk so nicely?' Alice said, hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment. `I've been in many gardens before, but none of the flowers could talk.'


Yes, it's the weekend again, so time for some Wonderland inspired fun, and this weeks challenge over at Oh, Alice!  is all about flowers, we are challenged to use Flowers on our cards this week. 

As well as the Oh, Alice! challenge, i made this card for this weeks Pixie Dust Studio Challenge , this weeks challenge is 'Things with Wings' use anything on your card that has wings.


I used the Mushroom Pixie Princess from Pixie Dust Studios, i printed her out and coloured her with my prismacolour pencils.  I found this lovely mushroom paper in my stash, so i decided to use that and some coordinating papers.


Using a circle nestie as a template, i cut two circles from the patterned papers, and then distressed the edges, then pricked the edges before sticking the circles together.  I took a white card blank and added the orange polka dot paper to it, and pricked the edges.  I then took a couple of scraps of the coordinating striped paper, stuck that to my card and pricked the edges.


I then attached my pretty pixie onto the card, using foam pads to give some height.  Then i added some pretty flowers and pearls from my stash.


Another bright cheerful spring inspired card from me today, I love this time of year.  My main objective with today's card was to make it as different to yesterday's card as possible; I think i succeeded.  Two spring inspired card, but very different in style.

StampInsanity Challenge # 4 - Stair Step Card

It's Thursday again, doesn't the time fly?  Time for another groovy challenge from StampInsanity; this week we're challenged to create a Stair Step Card.

I decided that the beautiful Joszette from Les Coquettes would be perfect for this challenge.  I printed her out and coloured her skin, and tshirts with my promarkers, I then coloured the rest of her with prismacolour pencils.  This is my favourite colouring technique at the moment, I find that the promarkers give a lovely subtle blended tone to skin, and you can get a nice flat base colour with them too; I then like to add shading with my coloured pencils, i like the texture the pencils give to the coloured image.

I created my Stair Step Card from a piece of vanilla cardstock, I then decorated each step with a paper from the Flowery Papermania Paper Pack.  I only used one sheet of paper, as it featured the lovely striped panels, which worked perfectly with the steps of the card.

I then added a piece of ribbon to the front step, then a stamped sentiment, with a ribbon bow on top.  I added a flower embellishment to the centre of the bow along with a pearl centre, this was to echo the pink flowers on the paper.

I hope you find time to join in the challenge, we'd love to see your take on it; and every month there are digi images to be won, just by taking part, check out the StampInsanity Blog for full details.

The Greeting Farm Battle continues...

Yes it's week two of The Greeting Farms Battle of the Design Teams, and I'm delighted to say that the Time Travellers made it through; Thank You to everyone that voted for us, and a special thanks to Sony for creating a brilliant card.

This week's challenge was to create an easel card; sounds easy, and yes the basic easel card is very easy; but then you have to think about your competition, with such a broad theme, the competition is going to be unbelieveable, oh and it is!!

The Time Traveller's card this week was created by, Me!!, I'm very honoured that the rest of the team liked my card so much that they voted for it to be our team entry.  So please Vote for our card, I really don't want to be responsible for our team leaving the competition.

I had real fun with this card, once i came up with the idea.  I watched Coraline for the first time a couple of weeks ago and loved it.  Her outfit reminded me of the gorgeous Rain Rain digital stamp by The Greeting Farm so i knew with a little altering i could make my very own Coraline. 

I used one of the pretty houses from the My House set of stamps for Coraline's House. I used some blue vellum from my stash for the night sky, and for the background on the base of the card.  I punched a circle out of a scrap of white card, and another from the blue vellum to create my moon and button (I used my cropadile for the buttons' holes) and I layered these behind my night sky, I then used a pale blue pencil to highlight the moon and some clouds.  I drew the little hill and steps to Coraline's House on a piece of white paper, and then coloured with my promarkers, and adding some detail with a black fine liner pen.

For the base i kept it fairly simple, I love the button key from the film, so created my own using some textured black card, I also created some black buttons.  On the key i added the quote 'Be Careful What You Wish For!!' from the film.  The key and buttons are raised on foam pads, this creates some lovely shadows, and stops the card front form sliding closed.

To finish my card, i drew Coraline's rag doll, and coloured her with promarkers. The perfect finishing touch i think.

I love how this card turned out, got to love Coraline's blue hair, lol!!  Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed and hope that you all like it enough to vote for it.  I hope you do :)

Have a Wonderful Easter Weekend,

Time to Raise the 'Thermo'Bar!!!

It's Friday so it's Raise the Bar Day, and today's challenge is lovely...

April Showers! {or not}

Create a card or project that has a weather based theme: rain, snow, sunshine, you name it! It doesn't have to be a stamped image, you could use papers or ribbon that evoke weather.

Well I decided to avoid the rain and snow, and go for something more cheerful, and what is the best thing to follow a storm; Yes it's a rainbow!!

Choosing my stamps for this challenges was very easy, I knew that the 'Sunny Days' set of digistamps from Whimsie Doodles was perfect for this card, altho there was one little problem; no rainbow! So I drew my own.  I pasted the digistamps into a new file in Photoshop, and played around with the layout of them, until I was happy; I then printed my scene.  I drew my rainbow in pencil, before colouring the whole image in with my promarkers.  I then added the black outline to the rainbow, and some faux stitching.  I then added some more colour using my prismacolour pencils.

I trimmed my image, mounted it on black card, and then onto a white card blank.  To finish it off I added the 'Congratulations' epoxy sticker that i'd found in my stash.


I love how bright and cheerful this card came out, and I can't wait to see what you create for this week's challenge.  Hope you have as much fun as I did :)

Be Inspired & Get Groovy with StampInsanity's Rockin' Challenge

It's Thursday so that means it time to get Groovy with StampInsanity's Weekly Challenge.   Today we have an awesome inspiration challenge from Tonya, Now Isn't that a Cool TShirt?

Today is extra special, because it's also Release day for Rockin Lita & Roder Digistamps
Now for today's card, i combined the awesome inspiration challenge and the rockin' new stamps and came up with this.....
I had real fun with this card, firstly i raided my craft stash to find some papers that coordinated with the inspiration piece, I found the perfect papers in the DCWV 'All Dressed Up' Paper Pack; I love how the zebra print echo's the cat's stripes, and the other paper is a gorgeous turquoise, with a nice touch of sparkle.

I printed Lita and Roder out and coloured them with a mixture of Promarkers and Prismacolour Pencils.  I also printed the 'Rock Out Loud' sentiment, i cut this out to resemble a guitar and coloured it to coordinate with the rest of my card, I added lots of sparkle to the guitar using my Sakura Clear Stardust pen. I then mounted this on black card, and distressed the edges.

I then played around with my layout, I created my card blank from a sheet of black cardstock, and decided to cut my papers into large triangles, i then mounted these on black and then turquoise cardstock, before mounting on my card.  I then added my main elements, firstly the guitar, and then Roder & Lita.

Now it's time for you to get your Groove on, and join in the fun, Visit the StampInsanity Blog, for full challenge details, and info on how you can Win Some Digistamps!!

Thanks for visiting, and Have a Groovy Week :)
