Cheeky Scarecrow

Today is Freebie Friday at Bugaboo Digi Stamps and this time the image on offer is a cheeky scarecrow. For my card I have teamed him up with one of Bugaboo’s pumpkin images.

SAM_4910(watermarked).JPG

Materials used: 
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Scarecrow Sitter  (Friday Freebie Image)
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Halloween Pumpkin
acrylic greeting stamp
archival black ink pad
Copic pens
green and yellow card
A5 card blank
adhesive gems

That cheeky scarecrow looks very happy sat on his pumpkin!

You may have noticed the new watermark! I have actually been a full member of the Bugaboo DT for a while but have only just noticed that I had still been using my guest designer watermark. Put it down to yet another senior moment. Since I love penguins this one was a treat!

Don’t forget if you like the Scarecrow Sitter you can pick him up for free from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and while you are there take a look at all the other wonderful Bugaboo images.

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

All Dressed Up for a Party

Here I am again with another freebie image from the Kit and Clowder party.

SAM_4917(watermarked).JPG

Materials used:
All Dressed Up Stamps – Feeling Spoilt
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
Copic pens
green, lilac and mid grey card
X-Press It card
adhesive gems
A5 card blank

Colouring up this cutie was a challenge, I had printed her quite small so she is tall but so thin!  I chose the colours of the mats she is mounted on to compliment her dress and the present she is holding. The large grey mat was the only colour I could think of from my stash that would take the green and purple without overpowering them.

The little gem stones in the top left and bottom right corners reflect back the colours around them. It does not show up that well in the photo. If you hold them up to the light and move them about a bit you get a kaleidoscope of colour in them.

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

Blinged Up Owl At Limited Runs

This month the image for the Limited Runs Progressive Challenge is an owl.

SAM_4933(watermarked).JPG

Materials used: 
Limited Runs Digital Stamps – Art Deco Owl
acrylic greeting stamp
X-Press It card
Copic pens
black archival ink pad
Distress Oxides
printer paper
That Special Touch Mica Masks – Leafy
wood grain mask (freebie from crafting magazine)
stencil brushes
very old adhesive gems

The background is made using different Distress Oxides in greens and browns and the stencils on printer paper. I used the leafy stencil on the front of an A5 card blank then cut some extras from the paper I had made. The tree and branch are cut from paper made with the wood grain stencil.

The owl is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics. The gems on his eyes are some I have had for some time but not really known what to use them on. They are not bright enough to be orange, neither are they brown or gold. however they seem to work on my owl.

I have just got time to get him into the Limited Runs Challenge so excuse the rush! Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

Friendly Spirits

I don’t celebrate halloween, to be honest I have never seen the attraction in anything remotely resembling the  occult, so when Scrapper’s Delights came up with the image of little ghosts as the next one in the progressive challenge it did present a dilemma!

So I decided rather than miss out on this one and ignore it I would aim to go for something friendlier so no scary houses, witches, warlocks, ghouls or screaming banshee.

SAM_4915(watermarked).JPG

Materials used:
Scrapper’s Delights – Ghosts
textured orange card
black card
X-Press It card
Copic pens
flat backed adhesive pearls
A5 white card blank

The photo does not show it very well but there are some pale grey shadows on the image. The sentiment is computer generated from a generic font.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

Age and Art

Today I want to share with you my card for this month’s Imagine That Digistamp Creative Playground link up. I have used the image that came free by linking up last month so a progressive challenge if you like.

SAM_4914(watermarked).JPG

Materials used:
Imagine That Digistamp – Manatee Painter
gold mirri card
X-Press It card
A4 white printer card
purple adhesive gems
Copic pens

I wonder what masterpiece this manatee will come up with! Originally I was going to put a sentiment in there but then thought better of it. A blank canvas leaves much more to the imagination, also I had found the quote from Stanislaw Jerzy Lec and wanted to use it.

I used the computer to print the quote onto an A5 tent fold card blank before adding the topper.

This could be one for a male birthday in the future.

Thanks  for visiting. Take care.

Ice Queen

A few weeks ago Kit and Clowder had a mega party to celebrate 15,000 followers on the Facebook Page. There were competitions, fun and games and a host of free images from their wonderful sponsors. This Ice Queen image was one of the freebies on offer.

SAM_4918(watermarked).JPG

Materials used: 
SheepSki Designs – Ice Queen
Bearly Mine Designs – Winter Swirls #18 (no longer trading)
acrylic greeting stamp
Copic pens
black archival ink pad
silver and pearl liquid pearls
green mirri card
adhesive flat backed pearls
A5 card blank

The main image is coloured with Copics and the liquid pearls added to the head dress and her eyebrows. Then the card is made up as in the image.

This image is not one I would naturally have chosen and I fought shy of it for some time. However, as is often the case, when I did eventually give it a go I quite enjoyed colouring it.

Thanks for visiting. Take care.

All Sewn Up

SAM_4912(watermarked).JPG
Materials used:
The Paper Shelter – Vintage Seamstress
acrylic greeting stamp
printer paper
X-Press It card
Copic pens
2 buttons
15cm square card blank
black archival ink pad

The coloured image was a bit too fiddly to fussy cut so I used a Copic pen to colour in the white parts as closely resembling the colour of the backing paper as I could get.

The mat is printed from the same kit and trimmed to fit the card blank. The two buttons cover two buttons on the paper.

I made this card for a friend who is retireing from the same school I worked at. She is a wonderful seamstress among other talents and thought this would be just right for her.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

New Release at Bugaboo

Tuesday is new release day at Bugaboo Digi Stamps and with Christmas rapidly approaching I think this snowman image will be very popular.

SAM_4907(watermarked).JPG
Materials used:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps – Sign It Snowman
Bearly Mine – Winter Swirls Digi Paper (sadly out of business now)
acrylic greeting stamp
acrylic snowflake stamps
White DL card blank
X-Press It card
black archival ink pad
Copic pen

The backing paper is from stash and is from a company that no longer trades. I have manage to size and position it so that the trees are in proportion with the snowman. The book title was added to the image before being printed out.

To add the snowflakes to the book cover I masked the book off then stamped the snowflakes with black ink.

I think I should appologise for the very corny book title!

This snowman and his big book is so versatile because you could put anything you like on the book cover.

This image is available from the Bugaboo Digi Stamps store from today along with a host of wonderful images. You can find more inspiration for using it from other members of the DT on the Catch the Bug Blog.

Thanks for dropping by. Take care.

Surround Yourself With Literature

The challenge at Path of Positivity has reached the midway point. This month we have been thinking about literature and what books mean to us. With me being a librarian and teacher in my working life and married to a vicar you can imagine the number of books we had around the place. Since moving out of the vicarage into our much smaller home we have had to have a cull in order to get everything in. My cull has been somewhat more successful than my husbands!

The image I chose to work with for my project reflects my feelings about a select number of books that I have read again and again. I have already talked about my love for the classics especially Jane Eyre and A Christmas Carol, the latter being an annual read. I have also read Les Miserables more than once and Don Quixote! They are like friends, reliable not to change and always a joy to revisit.

SAM_4886(watermarked).JPG
Materials used:
Sparkle N Sprinkle – Nasturium Digi Stamp Set
X-Press It card
green and orange card
15cm square card blank
Copic pens
fancy frame die

The sentiment and the flower border are arranged on the page before printing onto the X-Press It card and a second larger panel has been printed which is where the large flower in the top left corner came from.  All colouring is with Copic pens.

Do you have a favourite book or have you been inspired by particular books. It would be lovely if you felt able to make a project to share with us at Path of Positivity and you may even win a prize!
