Make It Crafty Crystal

Hello everyone...the weeks are flying by far too quickly! We have a new challenge for you today at The Squirrel & The Fox. Our theme is Let's Hear it for the Girls.  We're looking forward to seeing all your girly projects this fortnight :)  Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Make It Crafty. I've used the lovely Crystal for my project, which is another calendar page.....

I'm so impressed that I'm getting on with this project...last year's effort was a dismal failure as I only managed to get a few pages done. This one should actually end up a whole calendar by the end of the year!

Crystal was printed on to Make It Colour blending card and coloured with Copics....except for her hair which was done with my Prisma pencils :)  She's been fussy cut and popped up on foam dots. I think she's very 70s with her platform shoes lol  I'm showing my age but I used to have a pair like this waaaay back then....cork soles and denim uppers. I couldn't resist colouring Crystal's the same :)

The base is SU Cherry Cobbler, mats are SU Baja Breeze. The DP is digi from Shabby Princess. The calendar panel has been created in My Memories Suite and matted with Baja.  I've just realised I forgot to colour her little hair ties at the bottom of her plaits :(  I'll give them a coat of glitter pen for a little bling!

Go check out the rest of the DT projects, they are all stunning! Links are in the sidebar.

Thanks for looking.......have a wonderful day :)

Betty Ladybug Wagon

Hello everyone....hope you're enjoying your weekend. We have a new challenge starting today at The Squirrel & The Fox. Our theme is Mother's Day. Hope to see you playing along with us for this one.

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Pink Cat Studio and I've used the cute Betty Bug Wagon to make my card.

I've made this for my daughter, from her 3 kidlets...Jake, Kate & Amy. The wording has been computer generated and says "Happy Mother's Day....from your three little bugs" :)  I think this is meant to be a birthday image but I thought it was perfect for the kids to give their mum for Mother's Day.

Miss Betty and her charges have been printed onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copics, then highlighted with glitter pens, glimmer mist & SU Crystal Effects. The panel has been cut out with a Nestie die and popped up on foam dots. The wording panel has also been popped up on dots.

The DP is from the Kaiser Bubblegum Hills paper these papers! Base card is SU Old Olive. The seam binding ribbon is from my stash and was dyed using some SU re-inker.

This card didn't come together easily at all...I think I'm really rusty on the card making...too many calendar pages are to blame lol

Here's a close-up of the cute image:

Aren't those baby ladybugs just too cute :)
