Digital pencil too challenge entry: Food

Hello,

This is my entry for the challenge over at digital pencil too.....
Cupcakes!
I realy enjoyed making this card. The cupcake paper came from a old QVC kit as well as the sentiment.

I coloured the cupcakes to match the ones on the paper and the fairy in yellow. Although you probibly cant see it , there are little bits of glitter on the cupcakes and fairy.
Sweet sentiment!

Card candy too! This realy is a sweet card!

Where would we be without a bit of ribbon and a bow??

Oh No!





Good afternoon!
Well, yesterday i went to put some new cards onto the computer and found out my wire connecting the two has broke! Oh No!  So for todays post, i am putting on a picture i took over the weekend at scarbrough. It wasent the best day, but i take photos whatever the weather.
 Then today, my dad went to town and came back with a BRAND new camera! Its only been in shops a couple of days and nowhere else has it. It is completly different from my older one as it has special zoom lenses and everything. It will take some practise and getting used too, but i cant wait to try it!
 I hope to show my cards soon,
                                                                Natalie
p.s: Have you noticed my new blog badge?? Yes, i got top 5 over at passion for promarkers this week for my Kenny K yellow pocket card!

A easel Notelet card

Good morning,

Yesterday i recived a letter from my best friend, Charlotte, explaining how she had now finished all her exams and had left school. That got me thinking, i could make a 'congratulations on graduating from school' card. So i printed of my toppers and papers ready, and then i thought why dont i add something to it, like a gift in a card? So here is my finished creation.

I made a 6x6 easel card and backed it with pink card. I then got a smaller square card and backed that with pink, before covering with the matching stripey paper.

                  This shows how it looks form the top card. I added some buttons to make it stand out.

I found some old sticky notes that hadent been used and attatched them with tape, while adding the 'congratulations' sentiment.

                                                                   This is the insert.

                The papers and toppers come from the Furry friends cd rom from Joanna sheen.    www.joannasheen.com

My digital pencil too challenge entry.

Good morning everyone,

This weeks challenge over at DP2 is Vintage: Distress and Lace.
I struggled at first as we don't realy do much distressing or vintage, but then i came up with this.
Yes, it uses the same image i used for the story/poem challenge but does'nt it show how versitile the images are???
The paper came free in a magazine, the image was coloured with promarkers and then distressed around the edges. The sentiment too came in a magazine. I used some ivory/cream lace and made a border before attatching with musical note brads.



Please remember to take a look at my mums entry too. http://craftylynsblog.blogspot.com

Good afternoon,
My project today is a lili of the valley card. Its made using my new stamps. I realy like the new Oh So Girly range so i have three of those and one of the boys collection.

This card uses my minds eye papers, a Martha stewart punch, Some green ribbon, some turqouise coloured card, a sentiment, main image and some sequin flowers, including the large pink one.

The image is coloured with promarkers. The colours are:
Almond
Blush
Buttercup
Pale blue
Meadow green
Sandstone
Rose pink
Red

The sketch is quite simple, but it looks very effective and busy even though there isnt much on. Im realy happy with the result, please feel free to try it out and let me know.

Can i also say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has seen and commented on my hansel and greatal and house mouse challenge card. Your comments mean a lot.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
Natalie.

My Digital Pencil too challenge. Based on storys or books.

Good Morning,

I spent all of last night creating my challenge card. My inspiration is from the fairytale, Hansel and Gretal.
It took me a while to think of a book, because although i read a lot, i had to find a digi that went.
I used the brother and sister digi and created a background using aqua markers.
The main image is coloured with promarkers. I chose the colours, pastel green, rose pink, pear, cocoa, blush and almond.  These colours matched the paper used for my second layer, which are from a my minds eye collection. The brown backing paper actually has a wood effect, although it doesnt realy show up that well.

                                        The sentiment reads: 'Hoping today is perfectly lovely'
                                         Coloured with promarkers. From Cuddly Buddly.

The pastel green and brown flower are from my colection of pretty petals, and the small pink ribbon flowers are papermania. I added a pearl to the large flower.
