Lady of the Stars shines with Moon Glow

Hi Everyone

My turn to showcase a gorgeous Digi stamp from Crafts and Me.  This week I have Lady of the Stars to share with you, she is of course designed by Sara Burrier.

I have coloured her with my Copic's and then I've added some stickles to her wings to make them all sparkly.  I put some Liquid pearl dots on the string of stars and I have stamped a little butterfly stamp with versamark ink and then dusted over with some Perfect Pearls powder.  It looks so shimmery and sparkly in real life, so sorry I couldn't capture it in my photo.  Anyway here she is I hope you love her as much as me:-)

My next card I want to show you, is my Challenge card from last week, Spring has Sprung.  I've used Moon Glow, which is designed by Hannah Lynn.  I've also used a piece of the scrummy Digi Papers that Teresa now has in store HERE...  I've used Page 10 from the Forest Fairy pad. I've coloured the image with my Copic's and put some Stickles on her wings. I've also added some flowers, lace and ribbons.  A cute little Bird Cage Charm and a tag from K&Company.  The Gorgeous Doily is by Kaiser Craft:-) So Here she is, I hope you love this one just as much as me:-)

We all look forward to seeing your creations this week, so please check out the new challenge which has started here!!!

Till next time

GPepper Tree and Fairy Houses with Digi Papers

Hi there! This is Rose sharing a couple of projects that I've completed using beautiful products recently released and now available at the Crafts and Me Stamps online store.

This lovely little mushroom fairy, licking her handsized jaw breaker candy, while she rests across a few mushroom tops, is called GPepper Tree.  She was designed by Sara Burrier and is sold exclusively through Crafts and Me Stamps.  You can find her here.  I've used just the left half of a 12 x 12" sheet of page 20 from the Floral Fantasy digi paper pack (the other half of this sheet became one of my fairy houses as shown below).

These lovely little silhouette fairies are enjoying some leisurely time near their sweet little fairy houses hidden among the blooming flowers.  You can find the digital images of Nature Fairy (here) and Fairy Friends (here) at the Crafts and Me Stamps online store.  The fairy houses were made after printing 12 x 12" sheets of pages 10 and 20 of the Floral Fantasy paper pack (here).

Good Morning everyone,
I would like to introduce you to the new member of our family here at Crafts and Me, Sara Winter
has joined the digi team and she will be sharing with you her amazing art work and creations.
It would be lovely if you could all give her a big welcome here with a comment to make her feel at home.

This is a little bio from Sara followed by her 1st post.

Hi everyone i'm Sara i'm from Lancashire in the Uk and i am a stay at home mum to two gorgeous little boys . I have always loved to craft in one form or another think ive tried just about everything along the way then 6 years ago after my first son was born i discovered scrapbooking which soon led to card making and ive been hooked ever since !! My love now is definitely stamps and colouring i like to use different mediums and i'm equally happy playing with distress inks copics or prisma's i love the diferent effects you get with each . I am so excited to be part of this amazing team I have always loved fairy/fantasy art and to get to work with these beautiful images really is a dream .
sara x x x

Well how excited am i to be posting on here !!!! a little nervous too i admit its such a talented team !! so i'll jump straight in and show you my card i guess , I chose a beautiful Sara Burrier image called Teas and Sandwiches and sat ready to colour then thought hmmm i wonder what would happed if i combined it with another image .... so i added in Dear Diary also by Sara and here's what i came up with

the thing with me is i dont think ive really grown out of the faries at the bottom of the garden thing !! so i guess this is the little scene i spent most of my childhood searching for !!

I coloured with copics used some background stamps for the papers and crocheted the flower and with a few more flowers and lace thats my little secret world !!

thanks for looking
hugs sara x x x

Black and White Colouring

Hi everyone, Karina here with two cards to show you. I must confess that I really got hooked by black and white or monochrome colouring. And I wanted to give it a try at one of my favourite images by Crafts and Me, at Janna Prosvirina's Clematis. And I love the result. I coloured her with Distress Inks.

I combined a bit of yellow touch for the background of the image. This way it doesn't look to much as a sympathy card.

The second card I show you today is the one I made for our last Crafts and Me Challenge where we had the theme Distressing. I love distressing parts of my cards. It gives a great look and a touch of vintage. Here I used a Janna Prosvirina image as well; Belladonna. I also coloured with Distress Inks.

Here you can see a close up of image and my distressing around the image...

Wish you a wonderful day now!
Hugs, Karina

Stamporama Show sample

Hey Peeps!

I was so bold that i begged Teresa to make a couple of samples for Stamporama as i had some of the stamps she was going to show off. Luckely for me, she said yes, lol. Here in this post i will show you one of my samples.

I have used a stamp by Molly Harrison called Wonderland. It is available here. I decided to use some soft and delicate colours for both the paper and the image. It looks totally different from the original artwork by Molly Harrison.

The next creation is the bookmark i made for myself. This is the sample i made for the last digi challenge. Here i have used the brand new Chrysanthemum designed by Sara Burrier. She is available here.

You can find more details in my blog, here.

The Rockin` Rubbah team are having a new challenge over at Crafts and Me Challenges. The theme set is distressing, so don`t forget to hop on over and join in on the fun. Have a great day everyone!

Another preview :D

Hi everyone I hope you are all looking forward to your weekend and that you are going to stamperama. My card today is one I made for this weeks Crafts and Me challenge. The challenge is to use a new stamp that you have not used before. I was very lucky to get my hands on one of the new releases from the Jasmine Becket-Griffith range. There are 4 new ones that the lucky people who can get to the Crafts and Me stand at Stamperama will be able to get there hands on this Sunday. I so wish I could go but am working on tomorrow :(
There will be loads of items on sale as well as these new show releases so well worth going if you can.

Now onto my card. This beauty is called Sea Star and I have coloured her with promarkers and flex markers, before adding touches of sparkle and shine with metallic promarkers and sakura stardust pens. I have coloured her in the following colours:

Skin: Saffron, Vanilla, Ivory
Hair: Black, cool grey 5, Cool grey 4, Cool grey 3
Dress: Midnight blue, Egyptian blue (flex), True blue

I have kept the rest of the card plain to show off the stamp. I have used my dreamweaver brushes and midnight blue ink to distress all the edges and used the gold and navy card to mat and layer with.
