KaiserCraft Holy Night Collection Card

Hi :)  I am here today to share a card made with the new Holy Night collection from KaiserCraft.
The colours in this collection are really quite traditional but that doesn't mean your card has to be traditional.  As you can see this card looks pretty modern because of the embellishments and image.

I have coloured the Lacy Sunshine image with Spectrum Noir markers and added some accents with Stickles.
I coloured the stars on the PJs with a gold pen.
I also punched a scalloped circle to mount the sentiment, which is part of the Holy Night collection, on.

Thanks loads for visiting today and be sure to check out all the goodies available in the Artfull Crafts shop.

Art Journal Flower Power at Southern Girls Challenge

So another challenge is up and at em over at SGC, and this fortnights challenge is to use flowers on your project.

I have been a bit naughty this week as this art journal is actually a page in a journal for a swap.  I am not supposed to share it yet but since I organised the swap I guess I can break the rules ;)

I have used Bonnie Bookworm image by Oddball Art Co who are our sponsors for this challenge.

I coloured the background with mists then stamped with a kaisercraft flower stamp and a letter background stamp from Hero Arts in Stazon.  I coloured the flower stamps with prismacolor pencils to pop them a bit.  The image was painted with reeves water soluble pastels then touched up with prismacolor pencils.  I added a border, which has been slightly cut off in the photo, with a set from dylusions called write between the lines.

Thanks for dropping by my blog :)

Holy Night Collection Card for Artfull Crafts

I am sharing a card made with the new KaiserCraft Holy Night collection today.  This collection is loaded full of rich, traditional Christmas colours.

I decided to go with an antique gold look on this card.....

The image is coloured with copic markers and prismacolor pencils.
I have outlined my paper layers with gold glitter stickles.  The collectable was also outlined with stickles and a small gold bow added.

There really isn't too much to say about this card, it is pretty simple with the image and papers doing all the work :)  The image is a digital stamp from Lacy Sunshine Stamps called Rejoice Angel.

Thanks loads for visiting today :)

A Bit Of Whimsy With SMS

Hi :)  Happy Sunday!!!!  The sun has come out, the rain is drying up and the birds are singing, it is going to be a great day.

I have a SpiegelMom Scraps card to share today, and I am loving the clean, crispness with a bit of whimsy on this card.

I started with a watercolour look paper which I layered onto my card base.  I then added doilies along the card fold.  I cut up a project life card for the sentiment and glued it to a label then added the twine around the outside of the sentiment.

Then for an extra touch of cuteness I added the veneer bicycle and cork hearts.

I am loving how cute this card turned out :)

Artfull Crafts - KaiserCraft Touch Of Gold Collection

Hi, I am here today to share a card made with the newly released Touch of Gold Collection by Kaisercraft.   I really love the fresh white, grey and gold in this collection and found it really easy to create with.

I have used a couple of pages from the 6x6 Touch of Gold pad, yellow and white cardstock and a tag from the ephemera pack.  The sticker is a clear sentiment sticker from Kaisercraft.  The flowers are from my large stash but you can find LOADS of lush flowers at Artfull Crafts HERE

I have coloured the image with copic markers and used a white pen for detailing.

Please excuse the eyes, I added glossy accent to them but it has turned hazy????  I think that bottle will be relegated to glue from now on.

Thanks for joining me today :)

SpiegelMomScraps Gets Splashy

I have been a pretty un-awesome DT member of SMS lately but things are going to improve from here on out as I have changed my day to Sunday (for me) which is a lot easier for me to organise myself for - so yay!

So today I am presenting my first Sunday/Saturday post for SpiegelMom Scraps  and I have this card for you which celebrates my joy that Summer is on the way - whoop whoop - although only just about to break into Spring here but the daffodils springing up means that it is coming.

I coloured my image with copic markers and used Fancy Pants papers from an age ago and the sentiment is cut on my underutilised cricut, which I have vowed to use more as it is a very sentimental beastie for me, it was my wedding present from my husband :) See very sentimental.

I am adding links below for all the fabulous goodies you can get from SMS that I have used on my card and when you are visiting don't forget to add the code Louise15 for your special discount.
