Clean & Simple........

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are all about CAS cards, that's clean and simple for the benefit of those that may not know.

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

I'm so weird, Nikky comes out with a new collection and I immediately have to have it, but then I never use it immediately. Then I find that it is the ONLY collection I want to use! She brings out so many goodies, I think we forget to take stock of what we have. Ok, Winnie Special Moments came out in May so it's hardly ancient but look at how much has been released since then! LOL!

So for a clean and simple card I used Balloon Days, which you can find as digi here or if colouring your own digi is time you don't have, get her here - precoloured for you!


I opted to colour my little cutie with Copic Markers and made a 7x7 card, with a backing paper from the collection. You can get it as a paper bundle here.




The little flag banner is also in the collection in the embellishment pack as an individual purchase or within the main collection.

So go back over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!

Happy Birthday........!

Hello

My sisters birthday was yesterday (Happy Birthday to her) and I made this matching card and tag for her.

I used a Tiddly Inks Digi Image using 'Eat More Cake' which you can see here. I love this image and when you buy it you get the sentiments, the image and the cupcake all separate, great value for money.


I used paper from Nitwit Collections and can you see how vibrant it is on the card and not on the tag? That's because I printed it through different programmes, the card I just pressed print when it opened, but for the tag, I opened it on my silhouette as part of the tag design and it printed out a lot lighter. Interesting.

I designed the card and matching tag on my silhouette - I have seen a lot of cards recently with this lovely wavy border and it took me a loooooong time to get it on the silhouette (as it seems what I had been seeing was using a die instead), but I think I cracked it, the faux stitch effect doesn't show well in my photos - sorry.

For this design to have been achieved, I need to thank my good friend Jan who listened to me talk my way into how to do it. Patience of a saint that woman has! Thank you Jan x

I made a 7x7 card and designed everything on the silhouette so once it printed and cut the design I only needed to mat onto the paper base and colour. I only added a die cut 'Happy Birthday' using a die from Tattered Lace and added that to the front of the card.

I coloured Wrynn with my copic markers


I used the following markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair: E51, E53, E55
Dress: RV21, RV23, RV25
Cupcake: YR21, YR23, YR25, YR27, COO, C01, C2, C3
Flowers: Y00, Y04, Y08

I also made the matching tag for her parcel, with the colours for the large cupcake being the same as the colours stated above.


I LOVE how they both turned out. They took so long to get right on the silhouette but they were worth the effort. 

I hope you like them and thanks for popping past!

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are using the theme of Male, whether it is a male card or a male on a card, it's about the men!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

So I popped back into Winnie Special Moments and opted to use the ever so cute 'Flower Bunch' which is an image using Rocco.


I made a 7x7 card and used papers from the collection, which you can purchase as seperate paper bundles and I used bundle 3 and bundle 4.




 I coloured Rocco with my Copic Markers.



Isn't he adorable? So cute. The sweet little cloud embellishment is also from the Winnie Special Moment collection, which you can get as an embellishment pack, here.

Festive Fun.........

Hello!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme have wandered into Christmas territory again!

So this week, I had to go back to Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun - as the characters are too adorable to ignore. 

For this card, I made a 7x7 card using a 'scene' from the main collection. I then resized the matching image and cut it out to decoupage (I'm having a bit of a relationship with decoupage at the moment).




The image I have used is Carol Singing - which you can get just as the digi stamp, here. The papers are part of the collection. 

Pop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!

Tags...

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are thinking TAGS.

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

This week I am thinking Helga Collection, I have been neglecting this cute little Hippo recently and she just lends herself so well to a tag!


Everything I have used, the tags, the images and the sentiments are all within the Helga Collection which you can get in one bundle - here.



You can get the tags in this bundle here if you want them by themselves and the sentiments in this bundle here.  If you just want the images and nothing else, you can get that here but please note, the coloured images are ONLY in the big kahuna bundle.

I love these, I ALWAYS run out of tags and with the colours and different sentiments, I am quite happy to have these on hand and they are so easy to make!

Pop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!

Christmas..........

Hello!

Now don't forget to pop to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

Now onto our new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and yip - the design team haven't got out of the Christmas spirit yet.  So this time I am here to showcase some of the wonderful collection Picknix Nordic Winter.




For this challenge I decided to make a quick and gorgeous card and matching tag.  A complete gift set.  This is a precoloured image and makes such a beautiful quick card.



I decided to decoupage the tag image for a little extra impact and leave the main card with the larger image of santa for the wow factor.  I'm quite happy with how they turned out.

Now head on over back over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!
