Cute as a button - Good Soil

Hi everyone, today is my second post as guest designer for Crafty Catz and I have chose my mothers day card to show you all.  It is a cute as a button image, and she's adorable.  I have coloured using copic markers.  All papers are stampin up in blushing bride and wisteria wonder, the DSP is delightful daisy.  I have matched the leaves in the colours in the DSP which are soft sky and tranquil tide.

All the flowers are from various shops and eBay and the sentiment is liliofthevalley.  I have used nuvo drops to decorate this and glossy accents on the soil.

Hope you like her and all the mothers out there have a fabulous day tomorrow, its also little Mr's 14th birthday, so I said as my mothers day present my kids can clean their rooms today while I do a little blogging.

My creative scoop - Unicorn

Hi crafty friends, today I wanted to share a card I made on request for a first birthday, the photo is not amazing as it was so heavy to stand up, looks slightly lop sided on the photo but wasn't too noticeable lol.  I have coloured the unicorn with copics, and cut out to enable the shaker background to be made.  Stampin up cardstock, dies and punches used and liliofthevalley designer papers.  Lots of glitter applied as well.

Stampin up - No bones about it

I love this set, its one that I skipped past in the book until I got a request for some more boy cards.  What great fun stampin on accertate, stayzon used.  All card stock stampin up, with matching inks.  I did this for the kids class and they loved it. 

For the circle cut card we used vellum which took a while to dry but I still liked the effect 

Stampin up - Foxy Friends

I had lots of packs left over from the last few classes so have made them all up using all stampin up products, after a few foxes and wanted a change and used a few of the retired stamp sets in cup cake and by the seashore.

I stuck to the same colours of Calypso coral, pool party, island indigo and silver slate xx

Connie Fong - Leilani

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping to have a look at this gorgeous little lady.  She is so good to practice those hair strokes on.  I have coloured her using copic markers with a hint of black pencil (lesson learnt from Alyce kit and Clowder, to add a touch more shading).  I have used some old dsp from stampin up along with there card stock, punch and sentiment.

The flowers are from I am Roses and the ribbon and dies from craft online.  

Have a fabulous week my crafty friends xxx

Aurora Wings - dandelion sprite

Its been a while since I have coloured up one of these gorgeous little things, and I wanted to do something a little more darker with out going really gothy lol, I have used copic markers and a very natural colour tone, I coloured before I picked the backing papers which I dont usually do, so next time I would go a lot darker on the sprite if using this dark background.  

I have used stampin up card stock and kaiskerfraft dsp.  The stamp believe, is lavinia stamps.  Liquid pearls and skeleton leaves to add a bit of texture.

Happy weekend my lovely crafters.

The Paper Shelter - Hammock Days 

Hi everyone, I hope your all enjoying a relaxing sunday involving crafting ;) today I would like to share this project I made, from the paper shelter.  The image is adorable and I was asked to make a 60th card that they were going on a holiday for, I got a bit carried away with the grass before I remembered the beach theme so added the sand, sea and sky in at the very end. You can't see but I also used glossy accents for water condensation on the drink and a little on her glasses.

All coloured with copics and flowers added to the grass with gel pen.  Stampin up card used and punches and numbers.

Frangipanis from my tree in the garden :) 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my crafty friends, Lynsey xx

Sasayaki Glitter - Goodnight Dino

Happy Easter my crafty friends.

Last month I was a bit quite so this month prepare to have a few posts, starting with this adorable little dinosaur from sasayaki glitter.  I am honoured to be guest designer this month and this was the image I chose.  

I have coloured the cutie in copics with black and white prismacolor pencils to add highlights and shade.  I have used white gel pen and white prismacolor to add the stars.  

The paper is stampin up not quite navy and lemon and lime twist.  The stamp is from the stampin up no bones about it set and used the square dies to cut and frame.

Find the image here:

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter, hugs Lynsey xx

Scrappers Delights - Spring Equinox

Hello there, this time I have the pleasure of sharing with you the lovely spring equinox image which was great fun to colour up just like a bee.  I have coloured using copics and used some very old stampin up designer papers and cardstock.

I have used a old stamp that was from a magazine years ago for the sentiments and punched out.  I haven't used any other embellishments on this as the image is quite large so hope its balanced out enough. 

Dont forget to get your image here:

Paper Nest Dolls - Unicorn Girl

Hi everyone, this is my second week as GT over at Paper nest dolls and this time I have gone all out girly, lots of pink, purple etc... oh and pink diamonds.

I have coloured her in copics and fussy cut out.  Lots and lots of wink of stella over cheeks, tiara, shoes and unicorn although this never photographs well. 

The card is all stampin up in wisteria wonder and bashful blue (retired) and the coloured card is spotlight.  The sentiment is from Liliofthevalley and the ribbon again spotlight.  On her eyes and the unicorns I have used glossy accents, again tricky to see in the picture.

Have a lovely weekend with lots of sparkle and glitter my crafty friends xx

Scrappers Delights - Golfer

Hi guys, today scrappers delights are having a sale on this little guy.  The digi image is available as a girl or boy but I picked boy so the card could be for my son.  Don't forget to swing by the shop.

I have coloured him using prismacolor on crafts card which is the first time I have ever done this and apart from quickly learning how to blend I was pretty pleased with the results.

The paper is some old retired stampin up paper with the new punches and sentiments.  As the paper was so busy I haven't put any embelishemtns or bling etc on the card.

Thanks for stopping by xx

Paper Nest Dolls - Heart Apron 

This month I have the lovely pleasure of being guest designer for 2 projects for the Paper Nest Dolls. The images available are totally and utterly adorable and based on the artists children.

I have coloured this cute pie in copics and used some papers I had lying around, all emblishements from eBay apart from the ribbon and the pink paper which are stampin up.

This card is already in the mail for a little girl who just had brain surgery on a fb page I follow so I'm sure she will like it.  You can't see on the picture all the wink of stella which is on the flowers, wooden hears and all the hearts in the image.
