Saturated Canary Violet Vintage

 Hello thanks for stopping by.  Tonight I have the beautiful Violet Vintage by the talented Saturated Canary.  Not usually colours I use, but drew inspiration from the Bo Bunny paper from their "Country Garden Collection" pad.  I think I like these two colours together!  Makes for a nice bright card.  I have used a magnolia swirl die and a La La Land heart banner die.  I bought some new flowers from WOC which I recieved the other day ... don't those red calla lillies look divine (sob sob- they dont have them in their shop anymore so I'm not sure if they are a deleted item??)... and those silk daisies?? I got them when they had their discounts, and I cant resist a bargain, so bought up big :-) They now have up to 50% off so go check them out! The acetate butterflies are made by me using a sizzix butterfly stamp set.  

Simply stamp your butterfly on acetate using STAZ ON ink.  coat the ink with Dimesion magic and sprinkle with some fine glitter.  Let dry, colour with you copics, this rough side will be the side facing your card... cut out and fold up your wings and let you butterflies sparkle.  You can also use dragonflies or any insect really!

I have used a rhinestone ribbon slider, and dotted some liquid pearls with glitter dusted over it for spakle and shine.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
Chocolate Coffee & Cards Challenge : Bingo (Glitter, bling and flowers)

Saturated Canary Fairy Wishes

Good afternoon.  Told you I'd been busy hehe!!! I hope you're not getting sick of seeing these divine images by Saturated Canary, because not only did I just do a spending spree at her didg shop, my LSS Arnolds have them in Rubber... so I couldn't resist LOL!!!!  This one is my new rubber stamp called Fairy Wishes.  I have been really trying hard to get my folds defined, and have a long way to go, but so far so good!  I also bought a new pad which is my total fav now... from Kaiser Craft. it is called "Lavendar Haze".   The ribbon is from my stash and I have twisted little pieces of green organza under cream lace.  The result is quiet effective and adds a new dimension.  Flat back pearls and flowers are WOC.

Saturated Canary Mermaid

Hello! my second card for today and it is an image by the awesome Krista Smith aka Saturated Canary.  This one is "Mermaid" and I have used a fav colour combo of aqua and purple.  I used the stippling dotting technique as shown by Alyce of Kit and Clowder in her video and think I will be using this technique more and more for my water type images.   I have used paper from Prima pad "Hello Pastel" and paper by Pink Paislee called "Clam Chowder".  The doily I made using a fiskars punch.  The flowers are WOC and I have scattered dew drops around.  I coloured white rose ribbon/lace using some glimmer mist.  The starfish embellishments are recycled from decorations from the wedding tables of my cousin which were going to get thrown out (Can't let that happen!!!!)

Pink Gem Twin Baby card

Hello! I promise you all I have not been neglecting my craft... just my blog :-( Sorry!!! BUT I do have lots of cards that I have done which I aim to put up over the next couple of days. This is for a lady who wanted a twins card for a friend.  I coloured the image in neutral orange and purple as she wasn't sure of the sex of the babies. The image is a Pink Gem Design, called Twin Girls, and I am stoked with how it has come up.  I have been practicing my colouring and even have had a class with the ooober talented Alyce Keegan (Kit and Clowder) at my LSS Arnolds. She also has done You Tube videos of how to colour which are easy to follow.  Papers are from the pad Forever Friends called Kraft Notes.  The little congratulations banner is cut with a Whimsy die and the dotted outside is Whimsy stamp, the wording I think is KaiserCraft.  The flowers are from WOC and the Ribbon, lace and buckle slider are from my stash.

Reindeer Rides by Inky Impressions for Southern Girls Challenge

Hello! this is my first card for some time, between work and life, I just cant keep up (my life is SOOO interesting NOT LOL!!!) Well it's challenge time again this fortnight over at the Southern Girls Challenge, and team Lou are using die cuts and/or punches.  This fortnight we were given some lovely digi's to work with from Inky impressions and I have chosen Reindeer Rides.  Now when I chose this image, I didn't think for a second the detail in this image.  It is probably one the the most intricate digi I have coloured up.  I am so happy with the result!  I used loads of copics, but needed to to get the wow factor this image deserved :-)   I have used a holly leaf punch I have had forever, the frostyville border die by Memory Box, and the christmas tree and fence die are from Magnolia.  I have added little red rhinestones to the snowflakes which add a special touch.  The DP is by Carta Bella called "December 25th".   Flowers are by WOC and the little red berries are from the $2 shop.  I have added liquid pearls and glitter to the snow effect.

So please show us you dies and punches in your creations over at The Southern Girls Challenge... cant wait to see what you can create!
