Let's travel and Alter

This week at Paper Cupcakes I set the challenge and I asked my teamies to make something with 20's-30's. I love those years I remember making a dress for myself looking like the 20's ladies dress lol
I used my Glitter Girls art deco board and the fab Mr Twitter, I just thought he looks like the 20's-30's guys lol
Here is my card

My second  is a altered choc box. I made this to go with mt last few post. This box already been given to the birthday girl. I used one of my old stamp and painted the box with acrylic first then I stamped my image with stayz-on then I stamped with big&juicy and let it dry over night. I stamped my WA put ribbon through and box was done. If you like to see the rest of the TioT teams box pop over to the challenge blog and have a look, they are fab boxes.
This is my choc box and the choc was soooooooooo yummy I LOVE dark choc and to top it, it had feeling inside it too, not even sex can top this up lol
 and here is my altered choc box but the birthday card and bookmark inside it not chock.
 Simple WA what I stamped and went through the script embossing folder

Somethin cute or cuddly

Friday which means Delicious Doodles Challenge. Is butterfly counts towards cute lol def not cuddly though. To be honest I had to make this 18th BD card and I had 2 choice, use the Butterfly fairy what I used on my bookmark last week and using with other things what you gonna see next week or not making anything. I decided I rather make my card but might not as cute as should be. I decided to make a tent card and this will be my 1st attempt. I had to make it a bit differently from the tutorial I've seen cos I already got my box for the card and it's a specific size, so had the button before I've go the coat lol
Anyway you'll be the judge if it's cute or not.

I couldn't post this post or rather shedule it last nigh cos after 20 pic still wasn't good enough to blog it so had to wait till I got home from shop and hairdresser, dog walking to take new pick. I kept the side view from last night though. I was playing with the settings and I like this one lol after all the camera is my toy too and was having fun taking pics, none was good enough to post though lol

Last minute I messed her face up but it's been already glued on and can't take it off and no time to redo it again.

Sorry it's a short post as I still got loads to do before the whole set is ready. Present is ready but now I'm making the box. I need to decorate it now. Been coloured but still not 100% happy with it so need those vital decoration as the colouring is just a base. Come back next Friday to find out how the box looks like, tell you it was hard to get the base ready. OK I can tell you this much it's a jewellery box.
Off to do my box now. My FP (friendly plastic order had a bit of hick up so one colour is missing but I think I can do without it, just got to improvise right lol

Oh I bought few fab butterfly anda peacokfeathre for my box, I think it's gonna look FAB well I hope it will

Late post

Sorry guys I'm late but been soooo busy making that 18th birthday present that I hardly been on-line. I even mixed up my TioT challenge so have nothing to show you this week.
But do have my Paper Cupcakes DT card. For this week we got an inspirational pic for you

This greenish, blueish & brown selection of bottles reminded me of the sea so I have used the last week freebie the Beach Bear, the bottom layer paper is from TLC Creation's and so is the WA. I have created my background using TH distress inks and some of my cloud stamp what I use a lot. They do come handy for my clouds and handy to create the sand too. I have masked the bear and made a mask for the Sun as well. I made him white so he can catch the Sun, just let's hope he's not gonna fry himself lol
Ah I'm gonna cheat. Just realised this week theme for TioT goes well with this card so I'm gonna use this card. The theme over at TioT is Here comes the Sun set by Janet.  So after all I do have a card yeeeepppppyyyyyy

Here is my card opened up. It's a easel card. I really like the sentiment what was in Paulette's last club. The images in the water are TLC creations as well.

Thanks coming by

An other LIM card

Well I got the hang of it now lol Really like this LIM Challenge blog I used D2D image and it's their weekly free image challenge (oops missed out on this one lol), and TLC |Creations WA. I coloured my image with Shakura glitter pens. Probably the first time the glitter show on the pic. The framae is hand drawn.
Here is the pic

I hope you like my quick card

Flying by .....

Just no idea where the weeks flying by lol Seems like I blink two and a week passed without anything important happening now that's not true cos I do make cards and that is important isn't it ?!
Now we on challenge #30 at Delicious Doodles and the them is Things that flutter. I think most ppl would associate this with butterflies but I used the new image Lovey-Dovey Shilouette. I've got a pigeon couple in my back garden and last year we had to experience a horrible sight, their baby was taken away by goshawk. We just seen this big whooping bird coming down and picked the baby pigeon up and next second he was gone. I hope this yr baby pigeon will survive.
Oops I'm gobby again lol well here is my card. Yes I know it's very simple, it's the LIM girls fault. I entered their challenge last night the 1st time and I just loved it, so here is an other one. I think those doves look fab with nothing powering them over. I hope "Boss" you don't mind a simple card but it is true "Less is More"
at LIM is frame it and one layer week what I found difficult at my 1st go but now got the hang of it. I think this will be a challenge what I'll visit as much as I can. My card is simple but still tried to put a bit of colour in but making sure got loads of white space too. The edge is cut with wave cutter and the bottom of the card slightly longer and distressed. I distressed the top&bottom of the card too but just very lightly. I draw a hand free frame round the Doves and the WA is by me.

Butterfly and few more cards

I've got few things to share with you today. First I'm gonna show you my TioT DT tag and the theme is Butterfly. I used Delicious Doodles image and TLC creations papers and WA, few bit of wool. I love these fluffy wools. I had this bit of off cut paper strip what I put through my Fiscars feathers texture plate then sand it down to give it a bit more deffinition.
 I made abt 10 pic if not more to get the colour of the wings. Above you can't really see the colour of it. I was very happy with the finished result.
 Oh I almost forgot. I chose this sentiment cos this is gonna be part of an 18 yrs old girl birthday present. It is a tag but big enough to use as a bookmark.

My second card is a very simple one, made this for Less is More Challenge. Simple ok but ONE LAYER MEEEEEEEEEEEEE now that was a challenge cos I LOVE decoupage my images to much or just 3D it with my gel glue lol I didn't this time. The sponsor is Arielle from WFC and I used her image for this entry. I'm big fan of Arielle's images. The sentiment I seen somewhere, sorry can't remember cos I travel on blogland a lot and google sentiments a lot too.
 I have to eaggry with the fact Less is More and WFC images not need much dressing although I was tempted to use an other layer too lol I must say I do love how it turned out.

My 3rd card is for Pollycraft DT call. I used one of the free image what was given to work with. I kept my card simple but not so simple, I just wanted my image being seen and not over powered if you know what I mean. I sewed beads round it to frame my image. I never done this before but I kind of like it. The WA was done by me. Just love my Craft Artist program cos I can do my own WAs/sentiments. Takes time but I enjoy it.

 Here is the inside of my card. I had this in my stash waiting to be used up and the colour orange/red goes well with the front. On the pic is a bit paler then it is in real.

And my last card to show you is A day for Daises where the theme is: a new technique. The other day when I was crousing on blogland and I've seen how to emboss only just part of your card and I just loved it so I had to try to. But that's not the only new thing on this card. My part die cut is new and I never paper pieced with textured paper, so few new thing on this card. Again a simple card, the WA was made by me.

I have to figure out how can I convert my Craft Artist generated sentiments into jpeg so then I can put it up as freebies.

Well I hope you liked today's selection and hopefully it wasn't to boring lol

My little house

WOW I can not believe it's already Monday. The weekend gone so quick. So it it's Monday which  means it's Paper Cupcakes Challenge. Today we got a free image for you so go and grab it and join us in the fun. We got a recipe for you to fallow, very simple one: Pick two of these elements: Flowers, Ribbons, Pearls/Gem and/or die cut and use them on your project in any way. Oops I didn't realise die cut is in the list and I used it inside my card. I had to cover the mistake up lol

I printed everything onto a card stock and coloured my image with my beloved water colour pencils. Popped to the haberdashery to get some pretty ribbons to go with it. I had the gems in my stash which is perfect for this image. I kept my card very simple but I could not resist a bit of dimension so I printed the roof off and stuck it on with gel glue. When I printed off my image I turned my card and printed the sentiment too, the sentiment was made by Nina. Now if you look my sentiment to much on the right that's why had to use something to cover up the space, no waisting eh lol

Here are the pictures.
 I have to say I never printed onto card and paint it strait away but I do love it how it turned out. I think you have to have the perfect image to do this and this fab little house is just the right one.
 See why I had to use die cut, just had to cover the empty space up lol
 Oh almost forgot I embossed the roof in my polka dot folder before sticking it into it's place.

One for Daddy

Yesterday I put my little bear card out to dry and my OH found it, it's his Father's day card,  oh well I told him I won't make card for him but here is an other one what I made for him last week.

Over at Delicious Doodles Father's Day is here.  Cheers "Boss" drawing this High Speed train , just love it. I think it's looks fab when you don't colour the image just a small part of it, what's layered on a card and then put over onto the matching bit with foam pad or gel glue. The background paper is from TLC Creations (link on my side bar) and the tag is from our sponsor Craft 4 Eternity. For inside I use the same paper, the backing paper is awesome.

The shape of my topper just fallows the shape of the train and the little curl underneath works fab.
 When I've seen this bracket journey cards I fell in love with them. The sentiment on it was made by me.

I had to go down to my local haberdashery to get the red train buttons. I thought had them but I think used them last yr lol

Eeeek I almost forgot to enter my card for the Fassy&Fancy Friday challenge blog's DT call. I though I give a go.

The bear-y best dad

I made this to play along with few challenges, I used 3 different image for 3 different challenge, might be more though don't know yet. My images:

  • Sassy Cheryl Father's day bear
  • High Hopes Xavier&Oliver bear

And here is my card

The fence is the background but I did cut out the pots too to decorate the middle
 Isn't he sweet?

You can see I coloured them with glitter pen and they are on shrink plastic. I managed to smudge it with by jumper sleeve when I was colouring, me and my blooming left hand, I forgot if I water colour the shrink plastic it wont dry till I shrink it and being left heanded I should've worked from right to left but silly me I didn't so bears face messed up, I'm sure my OH won't spot it lol
 And here is the side view

Oh yes before I forget, I made the sentiment myself

Weired but wonderful

Now there is a challenge for you.  Weired but wonderful over at TioT. The thing is I had no idea what to do. Recently I've seen this technique where they just use a splash of colour on the image, I did thinks it's weired but loved it so that's why I chose this technique (did read the name but forgot and I'm not even 40 lol )
My image for this card  from "A Day for Daisies"  and the lady called Purple Lady so that's why my card is purple, well there is an other reason too but tell you abt it in a min. My paper is from TLC Creations and it's in the shades of purple even what you see it's blue it's dark purple.

I'm gonna enter my card into the "A Day For Daisies" where the theme is WHITE+BLACK+ONE OTHER COLOR [YOUR CHOICE!]
That's why the purple colour. I tried so many places to take a pick but still the dark purple turns out blue on the pic, well you know the picture does not do justice lol

My late DD DT card, my Paper Cupcakes DT card and played along with Sassy Cheryl's Challenges

Oh boy I'm such an idiot. I mixed up my challenges and for DD I made next weeks one, so quickly I made one as I had my image coloured up and it was only waiting to be used. Well I thought quickly I make was but in reality it took me over 3 days. I was blank. My bits weren't coming together till today afternoon when I found a bit of pink bubble wrapping lol with that took me 5 min to put my card together and before I spent hrs with no luck wired or what.

Anyway this weeks challenge at DD is texture. There are loads of things round you you can use (do check your recycling bin lol ) I have used Apple Blossom and it's 3D-ed too. I had a book page for ages I messed up cos it turned out way to dark but kept it and it did came handy lol My swirl is flower soft what I haven't used for donkey's yrs.

My Paper Cupcake DT project is a bookmark. The theme is masculine this week. The WA is TLC Creations. I just love this little froggie

My Sassy Cheryl's project is a tag what I want to enter to the challenge as well as to the colour me in. I paper pieced it with TLC Creation's paperers.
