Be 100% You!

Today I’d like to share a card I created last week, at the same time as the card in my Happy with SCACD Digital post. I love how these cards turned out, so bright, bold and cheerful.

As with my previous card, the focal image is a digital stamp from the Carmen Medlin for SCACD Digital range. “Hoverfly” is another fun image for going all out with bright colours, or you could go grungey and creepy. Either way – FUN!

Enjoy with Zen Beauty Serenity

SCACD Stamps - Zen Beauties - Serenity - www.markergeek.com

Over the weekend I took a break from work and my epic “To Do” list and had a little crafty playtime “just because”. I knew I wanted to play with one of the new Zen Beauties fairies from SCACD Stamps, so I picked “Serenity” and made the rest up as I went along. 😉

I stamped the image using a pale ink on Make it Colour Blending card so I could colour it using the “No Lines” technique (see end of post for more info and links to other examples). Because I intended to airbrush the background, I also stamped the image in black on scrap paper to cut out and use as a mask.

A Little Birthday Magic with The Greeting Farm!

We are now settling in to the new house quite nicely. There are still bits and pieces left to sort out, but the essentials are all set up, so I’m getting back to “normal” 😉

Our niece has the honour of being the recipient of the very first card made in the new house! It was a perfect excuse to play with one of the stamps from the new Magical Beans Kit from The Greeting Farm, which I have been itching to play with since it arrived just before the move.

You can find the Magical Beans kit and other stamps from The Greeting Farm over at my store Quixotic Paperie. I am based in the UK, but ship worldwide! Plus, if you pop over there between now and midnight on Monday 4th August you could enjoy a fantastic 20% off everything!

Here it is! I decided to make a pop up box card because I love making them and my niece was so impressed with the one I made for her Nanny earlier this year (you can also see another one I made HERE). The Magical Beans images lend themselves pretty well to this as they are a little smaller than the standard TGF size.

Cute, isn’t she?! An absolute breeze to colour too. I always have fun colouring TGF characters. She was coloured with Copic Markers and a little pencil on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card.

Copics Used:
Skin: E51, E53, E21, V95 Hair: Y32, Y35, E55, E57 Outfit: BG45, BG49, RV63, RV66

I created the papers myself, using a Prima stencil and my favourite Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals (Tibetan Poppy Teal, Magnolia Magenta Gold, Glory of the Seas Gold) I also used Luminarte Silks in Ice as a resist to create the star paper. Here’s a close up of some of the gorgeous sparkle:

Love it!

The dies used for the flourish and leaf elements are Magnolia DooHickey dies. The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set.

If you haven’t tried making one yet, you can find instructions on creating a Pop Up Box Card over at Splitcoast Stampers.

I hope you’ve enjoyed dropping by today. I’ll be back again soon with some more crafty fun!

I Have Loved The Stars Too Fondly (again)

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend. We had a busy one visiting Paul’s family for his Mum’s birthday (I’ll be sharing the card I made for her later this week). We’re home now though, and I’m getting ready to finish off some colouring I started before we went away!

Today I’d like to share an art journal spread I created. This one features a quote I used on one of my other recent art journal pages which can be seen > HERE <.

This page uses some Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations die cuts, alphabet stamps and some gorgeous Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals. It’s a pretty simple one but I do love the effect of the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals on the background.
