Back to school Digi Choosday



Hello my crafty friends I hope you’re all well I hope this post finds you fine and dandy.
As it’s Tuesday that means it’s another challenge at Digi Choosday
Like I said last week as of a couple of weeks ago we have changed our challenge for you guys to Always Anything Goes But for us DT girls we still follow a theme and this week we’re back to school ….. Aaaarrrggggghhhhhh I am sooooooo glad my school run days are over and getting the school uniform brought and sorted what a nightmare Amy hated wearing her school blazer HATED it, got into so much trouble because she wouldn’t wear it (naughty girl) .

So for my card I have used images and a tag from Winnie fruit punch collection 

I wanted to make a really simple card for this challenge  so I took one of the tags from the collection and  added it to MCS then I added the pre coloured image. I then went into the embellishment section and used the books and a pencil which I copied and pasted a couple of times and changed the colour then added them to the bottom of the design I then added my greeting and printed out.
Once printed I cut out and distressed a little and inked with antique linen DI 

To finish off I used the same tag and made the insert  which for this card I left blank

Digi Tuesday Anything goes (flip flap card)


Hello my lovelies how are you today I hope this post finds you fine and dandy.
As it’s Tuesday that means it’s another challenge at Digi Choosday OMG the weeks are flying by it’s going so fast.
As you will know we are now an anything goes challenge so no excuses for not joining in we would love to see you over there. But for the DT members we still challenge ourselves with a theme to make things more interesting, this week our theme is something new, hhhhmmmmm that got me thinking yeah I can use images I haven’t used before and craft stuff but that’s not a challenge really so I challenged myself to make a card that I have only ever tried once before eeeeeekkkkkkkkk hahah
Now this card I have called it a flip flap card no idea if that is it’s correct name but we’ll go with it. It’s so easy to make but a nightmare to take pics of as there are so many sides lol but I have done my best for you.


So for my card I have used images and papers from Winnie in Wonderland collection
I only used one paper and no I haven’t used it before so it’s new and so are the images as I haven’t coloured them before either (although it’s not a new collection but I love it) I added this to all my pieces distressing it and inking with cracked pistachio DI


The images have been coloured with a mix of polychrome and Pablo pencils then fussy cut out. I merged Cheshire cat and Winnie running out of time from the and then used Alice in a hurry for the inside.


 The greetings I added myself as I wanted it t be a good luck card so used some quotes Alice. 


As the card is quite complicated I decided to leave the embellishments really simple and just added a large fussy bow that I added a hessian thread to that I tied in a bow  then added a large pink button, then added some flat backed pearls to the outer flap.


For the insert I decided to merge Alice in a hurry with the Cheshire cat to tie it all together but left uncoloured, again using the same paper that I used on the card then added the sentiment.

Seeing Red



Hello my lovelies how are you today I hope this post finds you fine and dandy.  
This week over at Digi choosday it’s another Anything Goes theme for you guys if you join in (if you haven’t yet why not I know my teamies would love to see your creations as much as I would so come on over) for the DT girls the theme is monochrome so I thought I would challenge myself as I usually go for colours that I know I am ok with (pinks and blues don’t know why I find blues really easy to colour with hhmmmm)Anyway I challenged myself to see Red yes the dreaded RED HAhahah well if you’re going to challenge yourself you make it a good one don’t you lol.

I have gone for my usual 8x8” card and used a sketch by Jules which I thought was a great LO for this card.

My papers, image and sentiment are all from the Winnie in Wonderland collection and I have coloured the Queen in with various shades of red polychromo Pablo and luminance pencils
I added 3 red hearts to the side and embossed the glass bottle with bronze embossing powder then frontage added a tag (drink me) with embroidery thread I also added a lollipop embellishment with an added tag (eat me).The playing cards were from a Christmas cracker and I aged with DI inks
The card was finished off by making the insert and adding a short greeting.
