little princess

good morning crafty friends.
popping in to share a new baby card with you all today.

I've used Bailey has a baby by Stampingbella and I've gone all girlie on this, colouring medium I've used is my distress ink I've and highlighted the image with a little sparkle from my sakura pens and dusted the edges of the paper with a little distress ink



I've gone for a simple construction nothing too fussy apart from the fussy cutting when I've used my oval die around the image lol.

here's what I've used:
6x6" white base card.
papers:
 graphic 45
dies:
 ldrs, spellbinder
embellies: 
stain ribbon, baby bottle, various buttons
stamps:
 SB: Bailey has a baby, lotv tags, stmepleglede: follow your heart
ink:
 distress re-inkers: spun sugar, weathered wood, antique linen and walnut stain
memento: espresso truffle
stazon: timber brown
and to finish off with my sakura gelly roll pens

all it leaves me to say is: enjoy your day and craft happy. Ann

A B C D what will.........

hi and good evening Crafters it's been a little while since my last blog as I had a few lined up in my schedule. but I thought I would share some gifts I made for my girls (my grandchildren).

I had made similar years ago in cross stitch for my nieces and I thought it would be nice to revisit again but this time instead of using thread I have coloured the images with my copic markers.

one for Ruby


and one for Missie


I have used stamps from lili of the valley and I think some or all are now available in rubber and digi format.
to create my pictures I have used a A4 sheet of super smooth white stamping card and I have pre-printed the message at the top on my computer and lined the stamps by eye and when coloured I have then framed both images.
sadly I never made a note of which colours I have used and wished the pictures were more clearer so you can see the highlights I have added with my sakura gelly roll pens.
I hope, eventually the girls will hang them in their bedrooms.

all it leaves me to say now is: thanks for stopping by I hope you all have a lovely evening, enjoy and craft happy. Ann

congratulations and celebrations

hi everyone popping in tonight to share a new baby card.
a double celebration as they have had twins girls and I couldn't resist in using lili of the valley's stamp twice as nice.
I have coloured my image with distress ink (it seams ages since I last used them) and I have used some beautiful papers from Anna-marie designs. I just love the shabby chic feel to this card.


I've kept it simple as I didn't want to over shadow the beautiful paper.

7x7" white base card
Fabriano5 water colour paper
paper from my stash - Anna-marie 
wild orchid paper flowers
stamps:
inks:
distress ink: spun sugar, old paper, weathered wood, victorian velvet, walnut stain, vintage photo, tattered rose and aged mahogany

I hope you are up for joining in with lili of the valley's face book challenge it's all about love this month.

January colouring class

just thought I would share my image from the January marker class by kit and clowder.
I haven't used the image from the class but chosen to use one of my lilies (retired).
I've really surprised myself with my efforts even though I didn't have any rubbing alcohol I've used my blender in the sky colours.
and here it is.



at some point this will be framed and displayed in my craft room.
all it leaves me to say now is: have a lovely day, enjoy and craft happy. Ann
