Elfos , Magical Names Cards & Bird`s Calendar

Happy New Year 2014

Woww ,  a new year is starting,,,,,so I asked to Jane to do something special and here is her stunning creation with my "Wine & Elfos CS". Today's card challenge is one to celebrate the New Year and is my Design Team GD card for Nicecrane Designs. There are some lovely DT cards over at the blog, do stop by and say hello. I thought this printed digi image is just perfect for tonight. I used lots of gold card. There is a TH clock die, plus my J Sheen ivy die and the numbers are from Quickutz.

It is from a fab sheet of wine and elves digi images available on the website here 

I am falling in love with this New Year Creation by Jane

The backing papers are from Bearly Mine, a win for me during last year. If you recognise the bell it is from my Lindt chocolate Santa! I just added a red ribbon to it. Well waste not want not.

And here is a previous work with this sheet:

You can frame your Magical Name creation as a gift:

Brenda also at my Dt did these sweet and soft adrable cards,,, you can`t miss her inspirational work: It's time for our first Allsorts challenge of 2014 and our Tracy Mouse has chosen Free and Easy as the theme so it is a great opportunity to get out all those new crafting goodies Santa delivered. Our sponsors are Nicecrane Designs and DigiStamp.

I have used some of Ignacios new designs, the top one using the Magical Names sheet 

Vintage Love Card by Brenda ( Love the unnusual colors)

And she also did a second card with this collection:

Another DT piece for Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs using his new Magical Name sheet....and of course a bit of Pan Pastels in the background. You can find the sheet here, it's so nice to have the banner to add your own sentiment or greeting.

Tracy at my DT used this sheet to create this adorable Birthday Card,,,,,,so sweet one, so colorful, so unique and waht a bout the adorble image and butterflies? .Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.This week is my turn to host and I would like to see 'Free & Easy'. so you can make anything you like.

A unique and all over Magic Birthday Card by Tracy

Here is what I did, I used a Nicecrane Designs image from the Magical Name sheet, and decided to go with vintage papers, make some roses from an old book, and add a bit of sparkle.

But  That is not all,,,,,I desinged twol different Magical Names,,,,,and Tracy also was working with my other sheet
In Times Gone By

Love these special soft colors by Tracy,,,,,,,,you are rock my friend.

Good morning blogging friends, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is Ribbons, Buttons &/or Bows. As Nicecrane is our sponsor this time, the team are using his images. I adore the one I chose which is Magical Names, but then again I do love vintage. His images are amazing and he has such a lot of choice. Some of his images are pre-coloured and some are lined for you to colour yourself. I chose to colour mine myself with my promarkers. And to explain with these images, the sentiment scroll is blank and you add a sentiment or a name yourself, which I liked

You can`t miss this absolutely play of art by Carole,,,,working with these sheets,,,,,,, she did a Little Women`s Concertina Card based  on Louise M. Allcott's novel, Little WomenToday's card is my Design Team project for Nicecrane Designs - if you love vintage images of all kinds, from romantic to quirky, cute and humorous you should visit this website for an exceptional choice of coloured images and digi stamps. Click on this link to check it out http://nicecranedesigns.com

For this project I chose to work with one of the latest releases 'Your Magical Name'. The files are for you to colour and add the name of your choice to the banner, either writing, stamping or digitally!

I chose four of the images and used my Sissix Accordian Die to create the card - the names I chose to use are from Louise M. Allcott's novel, Little Women, even though the ages of the girls don't match the story! With four images to work with, it seemed like a nice idea!

I coloured the girls using drawing ink: I wanted to create the effect of old hand-coloured photos where just the main image is coloured, usually in blue,green and pink hues,which really stand out. Drawing Ink is great for this effect and for colouring Vintage images in general, I love it.

I then die cut the images on to Spellbinders dies that matched the inners of the accordion die and inked the edges of the shapes.. To complete the card I added die cuts, ribbons, flourishes and paper flowers - all the details are listed below.

Here are some closed views to appreciate the stunning work

Horayyyyyyy for Carole,,,,,,you are rock

Shabby Babby

Now enjoy watching this amazing and all over layered stunning creation by Lisa Minckler with this cute collection,,,,It is a proud to count with Lisa again,,,,,,,woww,wow,wowww.......
You could blindfold me and have an expert take hold of my hands and create a shabby chic card and it STILL wouldn't turn out right. I don't know how to describe what I've created here, but the theme, or what I was hoping to achieve, was vintage shabby chic. Are there some elements there to qualify? Yep. Does it look appealing? Ummmm, maybe it's just me, but I think it looks confused. Maybe that's the randomness of the arrows I decided to place; which were symbolic of progressing from birth on, as this is a birthday card for a very special friend of mine who prevails in this genre.

Coloured sampler by Lisa Minckler a gorgeus inspirational one,,,,,,,wowww Lisa.

Thanks to Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs, I was able to color this precious little baby girl using his images from Your Magical Name II.

Well, I'm pretty pleased with the results, even though my brain can't quite figure out how to naturally design like that, so I hope it's not too confusing for you all to look at too. However, the image is sensational and that was my saving grace! All the elements you see here were also cut on the Silhouette Cameo.

And here you can get my MAGICAL NAMES SHEETS:


Happy New Year  Bird' s Calendar

If you love Birds,,,,then you´ll love this unique creation by Bonnie,,,,,,working with my "Beautiful Birds Pack" such simple and at time so adorable,,,,, so clean, so easy to do,,,,,,,,,,horayyyy for Bonnie.

Create your own customized calendar.

This is the calendar I made for DD's birthday. The images are from Nicecrane Designs.

Each month has a different bird print. It made a super quick and easy calendar.

Ignacio was so kind and gifted me with 2 selections from her designs. I used the Winter Birds for some note cards. I'll share some of those with you when I get the photos edited. It's so hard to believe that we're starting another year already. The time goes by so fast! Thanks for sharing some of your time with me in visits and sharing your own inspiration. I look forward to your creative company in 2014.
