Creating for your incredible Kids

Hi again ladies, I am showing you the amazing worj by Florence  from my Dt using Decoupage Technique and working with my "The Charming Children Illustrations":

Does anyone still do decoupage? I remember quite a few years ago it was popular. I quite enjoyed it but then found the intricate cutting out a bit of a bind. Now you are probably wondering where this is leading.

My (second hand) printer has been playing up and miss-printed a couple of images. So rather than waste the images, I thought I would use parts of them. That’s when it struck me, how well these images work for decoupage purposes. So easy to cut out. Perfect for anyone who suffers from dexterity problems.

I love this image.  It really takes me back to childhood times.
I printed the image off, cut it to size and masked the little girl off.  I then stamped (stamp from my own stash) some latin script over the masked little girl so that the text would show up behind her.I mat and layered some pretty papers and my printed image onto my base card. From the miss printed image sheet, I just cut away part of the little girl and the toys and just decoupaged them up using foam tape. I used a die to cut out the little letter tiles and attached them, again,  using foam tape. 

I made this card basically as per the card above.  I printed out and trimmed my main image.  I edged it with gold pen.  I cut out elements from a miss printed sheet and then decoupaged them.   You can see by the shaddows which parts of the image I have decoupaged.I used a rubber stamp from my craft stash to make the tab in the top right hand corner and just attached it using foam tape.

.......DO YOU LOVE PETS........ ?????????

It is a 100-year old children’s book that’s been turned into an app without losing any of its charm! What makes this app a standout is the art deco illustrations, along with the shoe-lace-style binding.

I asked to Catherine to work with my adorable sheet called "Punky Dunky & The Mouse" , and She did a stunning and original custom  "Cat Story Book", So unique, so funny, so sweetie , I love it . You can'  t miss it  CREATE YOUR OWN STORY BOOK.

Now let me tell you about the story of "Punky Dunk and the Mouse"... When I saw the images of the set at Nicecrane Designs I knew straight away what I was going to make with them : I have a friend who is as mad about cats as I am and I am sure she will love this little story book... And don't worry about the mouse : she is a smart cookie and nothing bad happens to her ! It's more than I can say about the mice Sukie brings us !!! Here is the little story book...

It was not easy to take a photo of the inside but this will give you an idea...

Thanks a million for these amazing projects,,,,and
you for stopping by in my blog.

Spring Time & Birds... Enjoy it.

Sure, sure it is Spring Time,, and I am sure you love flowers, birds and so,,,,,,,,,,. I asked to some of my DT members to create with my new Spring & Summer Sheets and here is the result.:

First of all Anne did this stunning Flower Card working with my " Vintage Flowers DSL", I am falling in love with her incredible colorization,,,,,OMG they look as real flowers,,,so bright colors,,,,,so is a must  have to watch this card. Directly from her blog:

"We have been having such lovely weather these last few days, I am beginning to believe that Summer really is on it's way despite the fact that our garden is still full of Spring daffodils......and the woods are full of bluebells. Before the Spring flowers are gone I wanted to use a beautiful daffodil image from Nicecrane Designs. This is my second Design Team post for Nicecrane and I loved making this cabinet card. I hope you will like it too."

The base is plain grey cardstock which I hand cut into a cabinet shaped card. The next layer was cut using the Tim Holtz vintage cabinet card die and the mini cabinet card die together to create a frame. The frame was embossed using an embossing folder and I applied White Fire Treasure Gold all over the frame and buffed it to give it a nice shine. I cut another large cabinet card shape from Bo Bunny patterned paper (from my stash). The frame was raised up on sticky pads.

Coloring (Detailed View) Isn`it incredible???

The image was coloured using Inktense Watersoluble Ink Pencils, then fussy cut and mounted over the frame. To finish off I coloured some vintage ribbon with Wild Honey Distress Stain and I added 'thank you' from Tim's Chit Chat words.

Enjoy watching these all Nature creations,,,,,with my fascinating Birds Sheets, my friend,,,,they are a delicious to watch,,,,,,Thanks a million to My Team, and Bailey Rose to create this incredible and elegant card with my "Fantasy Birds CS"

Bird Card by Bailey Rose
I was recently introduced to Iganacio Molina of Nicecrane Designs by my fellow team-mate Flo of Florence and Freddie. Iganacio has this amazing on-line shop and when I saw some of the cards that Flo made using his digital images I was totally jealous and decided to buy some for myself. I mean if she can do it then so can I ! ( although mine aren’t a patch on hers ) so the lovely birds images have been copied onto acetate and then placed in the space left by the cut out circles. I added a piece of bevelled glass to the little birdie couple unfortunately what with the acetate and the glass I just couldn’t get a good photo and they look quite blurred here.

I also was working in mixed sheet,,,,,including digital Stamps and Coloured Nature picts,,,so you can choose from these different ones the best to use in your projects......and here is my new:"Vintage Spring Time". Enjoy watching the work by Julia and  Carole

Bird Card by Carole

The card is 8x8 and the base layer paper is from Graphic 45 (Secret Garden). I die cut the image using Spellbinders Labels 17 and inked the edges with bundled sage distress ink. I then mounted the die cut on to kraft card and inked it with age mahogany distress ink. Then I added a strip of paper (again Graphic 45) across the centre and added lace and vintage silk crushed ribbon tied in a double bow.

The roses were made using cream paper die cut using the largest of Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, inked using aged mahogany.

I have to say that this image was a joy to colour, I love to colour animals and birds, so this was a great project for me. Check back in a few days and I will have a completely different project, with a little freebie for you!
