Old Rocker

Good Afternoon

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope everyone is ok, having a great day doing what makes you happy.

Well Wednesday is round again and our  challenge 238
is now up and running over at


the Theme is   Ribbon or Twine



We have two  sponsor  for this challenge and they are:-



Prize 2 Digi images of winners  choice


Prize $ 10 gift certificate for their online store

My card has been made using a Dr Digi image named
BAT OUTTA HELL, you can purchase it HERE.



Details

1. Started with a 5 x 7 card, matted it with black card, then
orange card.

2. The image printed onto super smooth and coloured with
Copic markers. Once complete I laid it onto the orange
card and with patterned paper taken from MCS I cut an
aperture from the centre and aligned it over my image

3.Using a rope effect ribbon I created a border around
my image and adhered it with my glue gun.

4. In my stash of dies (think it's X Cut) I found these
two dies of guitars that I thought were perfect for
using on this card. They were cut from black card
the glitter was added to replicate the strings.

For that little extra sparkle I added glitter around the
circles on the patterned paper. I added the words
LETS ROCK made from a Tattered Lace  alphabet
die and cut them out of gold card stock.

To add stability to the card I have matted black card
to the inner.

There you go, Granny at the Karaoke a fun card for
most occasions.  My team buddies have created
some amazing cards for your inspiration, so I
hope you will hop on over and join in the fun.

See you there !!

Until Next Time

I Bring You Flowers

Good Morning 

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope you are all enjoying Sunday and if you are on holiday
I hope the weather is being kind and that you having a great time.

Quickie post today as off the pick up mum and take her to 
see my Aunty who has just lost her husband and try to give
her a little  TLC.

Today's card is made just for me, no DT work. Seems as if all I
am doing is getting stuff ready for DT work lately but HeyHo
I am going to try and arrange my time so that I can do some
crafting just for me HA!!!!

I have used the freebie from Sherri Baldy to create this card.


DETAILS

1. Card started out as a 7 x 7 but I have chopped off
a 1/3 from the front panel.

2. Matted it with green pearlescent card on both
the front and inside, next I matted with patterned
paper.

3. Using the butterfly border by Joy Crafts I 
         created the top border out of the same green
     card. I took paper doily and inked it with 
Scattered Straw by Tim Holt and both
        the border and doily were adhered to the card
before I added the matting.

4. Down the front of the card I added a piece of
mint ribbon and then overlaid it with lace.
Next using another doily and the same ink
I folded the doily in half before adhering
to the card.

5. Using an oval die and lilac pearlescent card
I created the frame. The image was printed
onto super smooth and coloured with Copic
Once coloured I die cut her out and still
using my Copics I inked around the edge.
She was then matted using foam pads onto
the lilac frame.

6. The flourishes were made using Tonic dies
and the flowers from my stash.

Here is a picture of the inside

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and thank you
for all the comments that you leave. I assure
you everyone is read and published.

Until Next Time
As Always

Good Morning

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well the start of another week has begun, boy the week are flying by.

What are you getting up to today?, I am off to mums as usual this

Today I am again giving you another Christmas card made from
the Christmas Collection Designed by the lovely Emma Goddard.
Her web site is Delightful Digi Images and the links are below.

Shop  http://delighfuldigi.blogspot.cu.uk
Facebook  http://www.facebook.com/groupsDelightfulDigis/

Emma has created some fabulous images and they are a joy
to work with. She even has backing papers to match, how cool
is that.

Anyway here is the latest card, hope you like?

 DETAILS

1. Card is 8 x8 and has been backed with blue card, then a
section of one of the backing papers over that. Before
adhering to the card, using the Sue Wilson die Snowflake
I cut out the border and adhered this to my card base.

2. Third layer is again blue card and using one of the
Christmas frames from the collection I took  it into
MCS and adjusted to the size I required.

3. The digi was also taken into MCS and resized to fit
into the frame. I then printed it out onto super smooth
card and coloured the images with Copic.

4. Using red glitter I used it  all around the frame.
I used Pinflair Snow Dust on their hats and mittens
and Pinflair Ice Diamonds on the Poinsettia's

Last but not least I added the words Happy Christmas
cut out of red glitter card.

Well thats me done for today my friends

       3. Next I took one of the frames from the Christmas Collection
printed it out onto super smooth card and coloured the
      poinsettia's with Copic. I then cut around the frame. Using
silver glitter I spread it all over the frame then adhered
it to the card.

the new Sue Wilson dies Snowflakes, they were then
also glittered before adhering to the card.

6. The inside of the card has a panel of plain silver mirri
card with a panel of the embossed card glued over
the top.

To complete, using red mirri board I die cut the
25th Dec using the die from the Joanna Sheen collection.

A Helping Hand


Good Morning,
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well the first weekend of July over, before we know it the month will be out.

I hope everyone survived the heat wave, although here in the North West

For my blog post today I am wearing my DT hat for Creative Craft Cottage
as its time for another challenge  to begin.  The theme for this fortnight

is - LAYER IT UP

Our sponsor for this challenge is



Prize - 3 Digi images of winners choice.

expression of innocence.

The image I have chosen is called I HAVE A SECRET  and you can purchase HERE.

DETAILS

1. My card base is 8 x 8 and I have matted it with lilac
card that I have embossed.

2. Using the Art Nouveau Layering die set from Tonic I
cut three mats in pink, lilac and white.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured
with Copic's. To soften the white edges I used Pan Pastels
in pink and even smudges it across the image.

4. The mats were layered up on the card using foam tape.

5. The pink flourishes are also Tonic dies and the flowers
from my stash.

To complete I made a small pink bow and added lilac
gems to the centre. The gems were also added to the

 we all love a bit of bling, so come on lets see what you can do.
 More details over on the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge Blog here
If you should need a little inspiration, then if you visit our 
     blog the wonderful design team have some stunning makes to share.

 if 1 of your entries uses an image from Whoopsi Daisy, you may have an additional entry. 
 So, if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image, you may enter 3 times total.


     Here is my DT make, I have a great a time designing this one and love
how it's turned out.

DETAILS

               1. Using white linen effect card I made the base, size is 19cm square.
       Then using pink satin card I cut it down to 18.5cm  square
 another  white linen card was then  cut to 18cm square.

 2. Using an X-cut die I created the aperture first in the pink
card then in  the white.

           3. Before matting together I took a fabric paper from First Edition
        Rose Garden paper pad and adhered to the pink card. I then
adhered the white card over the top.

               4. Next I took a pre coloured image from the Cd Sentimentally Yours
                    from Ruby Red (which can be purchased at the Whoopsi Daisy shop
                  link above or from Ruby Red Crafts).  I fuzzy cut her and using foam
                   tape  adhered her to the frame. Before doing that I glittered parts of
her dress and headband.

           5. To complete the design, I added the bling swirls (from the Range £1)
                      and using my glue gun adhered a row of  pearl  beads. The flower flourish
            also from the Range was glued to the card  and I have added a dazzler
       to its centre.  The sentiment (For a Wonderful Friend) from my stash.

O-Sew-Sweet and I have made three card to show.

Emma hand draws all the images and has some fabulous
image, backing papers and sentiments, so if you are looking
for that little something different, go on over and take
a peek.  You can go direct to the site by clicking HERE.



As you can see three very different cards all using the
same kit. The first one also has the backing paper, this comes
in black and white but I took it into MCS and coloured it.

All the images have been coloured with Copic.

Sorry folks but as I said a very quick post, I just wanted to
get these on a post.

Until Next Time

My card has been made using the image AMY NEW YORK CITY GIRL
for Lacy Sunshine and you can purchase her by clicking HERE.


DETAILS

1. My card is just over 11.5" x 6" and is DL shape.  To this I
had added the blue checkered card but before adhering
to the card I wrapped a lilac organza ribbon across it.
Then with another piece of ribbon I tied it into a bow.

2. Since the image represents a New York Girl I decided
to create a New York city scene using Serif. Once
I was happy I printed off cut it down and matted
onto my card.

3. The image has been coloured with Copic and then fuzzy
cut. Using a SB die and silver mirri board I die cut the
frame and then adhered the image to the frame with
foam pads.

4. Using the same silver mirri board and one of the 
new dies from Crafters Companion I cut out the
sentiment and adhered it to the card.

To complete I added three flowers, light blue gems along the
top edge and in each corner of the frame. A large blue
dome sticker was added to the bow.

So there she is, I hope you will come and join us, looking
forward to seeing you.

Until Next Time
As Always
