Penmanships , Birthday Cards & Magical Names Creations

Vintage Wish List

I am really falling in love with this Vintage Wish List by Helene:Since Nicecrane designs is sponsoring us I used his images from the Magical Names series, with just a slight colouring of distress markers, and made a wish list for the family. Why a wish list after Christmas? Well, my plan is to have it displayed the whole year cause during the year I know lots of things I wish for, but when someone asks before Christmas it's just a blank...

Can't for the life of me remember what brand the Wish List stamp set is, it's made of green rubber if that helps... :)


And here you can get my MAGICAL NAMES SHEETS:


Working with Penmanship illustrations 

Julia was working with my Vintage Penmanship Illustration sheet to create this vintge and so unnusual creation,,,,,such beautifully colored,,,,,,I am falling in lovw with this one...Horayy for Julia

Stunning Wedding Card by Julia

Enjoy this penmanship close up,,,,,,,,,it is a gorgeus colored one.

Tony,, at my DT did this really stunning Custom Diary :Ignacio over at Nicecrane Designs has continued to add new designs to his web-shop and one of the latest is the "Vintage Penmanship" collection. A lovely selection of illustrated swirls that you can add sentiments or quotes to and...

...which you can get here.I decided to cover another diary as a gift for a friend...

...the basic black diary was covered with PP from Creative Impressions and the spine and corners were decorated with the new washi tape from Scotch.I used the Penmanship swirl that contains a quill and a dove...

..the quill was coloured using Copic alcohol pens - I picked out colours from the washi tape - and the dove was just given a bit of shading. I inked the die-cut image with Distress inks in Antique linen & Frayed burlap. The "2014" was created using some silver peel-offs that were coloured using the same Copic shades as the quill. No fuss or flounces but an attractive, usable desk diary.



Birthday Card
But Tony also did this 3D Birthday Card,,,,,,so cute, so pink, so unique,,,,,,you can`t miss it: Ignacio sent this adorable set to the DT. Aren't the illustrations beautiful - such lovely artwork - and if you would like to obtain the "Sweet Birthday cards" set.....just hop over .I used the cute little miss with the rose to create this birthday card...

...with a mind to the high postal costs here in the UK, I kept it fairly flat and simple.
The base card blank was a pre-printed one that came free with a craft magazine...

...and the 3D butterflies do lay flat when in the envelope.
I rough cut the image and sentiment and attached them to the card using 3D foam...

...but only used a thin layer so not to make the card too bulky.
A quick and easy idea for a pretty birthday card...

Another Birthday Card
Curiosly Marion also was working with the smae image to create a totally different Birthday Card: The new challenge has started at het freubelstraatje and this time you had to use flowers on your card.
There are such lovely new images at Nicecrane Designs and I just had to work with this cutie. It was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the challenge.I used Prima Marketing papers for my card.

So different Birthday Card,,,, such a pesonal style by Marion

And here is the used sheet


My first......bit of crafting for 2014.(by Tony)

Really Tony was working hard,,,,,and she did her first 2014 creation.:I love pretty stationery and notebooks so I thought I would make myself a new notebook. I have had a collection of boring A5 hardback notebooks tucked away for a while and it was one of these that received the 'make-over'. This is what I put together using the new DoCrafts Papermania Capsule collection - Parisienne Blue...

...and one of the lovely images from Nicecrane Designs.

The image used is actually from the "Vintage Xmas Greeting Cards (ladies)" set of images but I think these ladies 'work' for many occasions...


...not just for Christmas. This particular lady has a slight blue tint to her so she works really well with this DoCrafts collection which consists of blues/creams/white.The collection includes PPs - I used the 8x8 pad for this project. There are also shaped journal/note cards and large paper blooms...


..the shades of blue are lovely and I loved the crochet trim that is also part of the collection.
This collection of images from Nicecrane is so versatile and they are perfect for using on many different occasions so don't think you would be limited to just Christmas...


There are new collections of images being added to the range all the time and if you would like to see how the DT have been using them, please hop on over to the Nicecrane blog to take a look.


If you love the Famous Kewpies by Rose O`Neill,,,,then
you´would love my new Kewpies Collection based in their cute
characters,,,,,so I am extracting them to celebrate St., Valentín Day:


Very Soon available for you to create


Thanks a million to the Team and all over to Tony for her hard work,,,,,,,

That 'wish-list' is such a wonderful idea - what a beautiful creation.

Lots of lovely ideas here Ignacio - I feel very proud that you allowed me to join your DT as you have a lot of amazingly talented people there.
