Don't Let It Fly

Hi everyone, Karina here today to show some more creations I recently made. My first card is made with this amazing new image by fabulous Zindy S.D. Nielsen called Don't Let It Fly

I wanted to colour this image in grey monochrome tones with few red accents. I love the way it turned out with its striking red colour.

The second card I show you today is the one I made for our last challenge at Crafts and Me Challenges where we asked for 'Fabulous Flowers'. I used another new image, from the amazing artist Janna Prosvirina. This beautiful image is called 'Foxglove Garden'.

As on the first card as well I also coloured this image with Distress Inks.

Have a wonderful day now! Thank you so much for looking.
Hugs, Karina

Hidden and Miss Mirabelle

Hi everyone! It's Alyce here and today I have two cards to share with you :) The first is from the brand new digi release at Crafts and Me and it is called Hidden by Sara Burrier. How amazing is this image! I had so much fun colouring her up....a perfect image for practicing your pleats!

You might remember my next card from last fortnight's is using the amazing Hannah Lynn digi Miss Mirabelle. I love how funky she is and thought she deserved some cool steampunk papers and colours!

Forest Guardian

Hi everyone!

Mona here again. Today i want to show you a creation i made using this beautiful image by Sara Burrier called Forest guardian. Available here.

I have coloured the image with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. Some of them are available here. I have also used Stickles glitter glue on the angel`s wings. Available here.  If you want more info on the colours and other products used, please visit my blog here.

I also want to show you the card i made for the previous digi challenge. I`m sorry for the crappy pics. I couldn`t seem to catch the right light. Well anyway, this is also an image by Sara Burrier. She is called July and is available here.

Our new teamie, Coops, has been my inspiration when i coloured this image. I have been looking for a great colour combo for brown hair as the ones i have been using earlier tend to become more like a redhead. Coops has a great tutorial i her blog on colouring brown hair with ProMarkers. Thanks Coops. I just love how it turned out.

That`s it for today. Now i`m off to catch some sun, lol. Please hop over to the challengeblog and join our rubbah team`s new challenge. I`m sure the girls would love some sugar too, lol. Take care everyone!

Ocean Rose and Dahlia

Hey Everyone

It's my turn (Karen) to show case an image at Crafts and Me, and this week I've picked Ocean Rose - she is designed by Hannah Lynn.

I've printed my image onto some copic blending paper and then coloured her with my copic's.  I've also added some Atyou Spica here and there in clear, but you probably can't see it so well in my picture.

Anyway Here she is I hope you love her as much as me:-)

I've tried to keep the card fairly simple (well for me anyway) just by adding a few flowers a bow and a little pebble of the bird.  I think she has turned out great:-) I especially like the richness of the paper with my image which I used a bit of Distress Ink on to age it a bit.

Anyway my next card I would love to show you is my challenge card from last week, it's an image also by Hannah Lynn (I'm loving these ones at the moment) and this one is called Dahlia. Dahlia is new this month and well I guess it wont be long before there is another release (on the 1st of each month) anyway here is my Dahlia - I hope you love her as much as me:-)

Now don't forget that a new challenge has just started over HERE We can't wait to see what you all create this week:-)

Till next time:-)

More new rubbah to show you :D

I have one of the brand new beautiful Janna Prosvirina stamps to show you today. She is called "Dragonfly" and I think she is gorgeous! There are a whole load of beautiful new rubbah stamps coming out next week at the brilliant Crafts and Me and as normal for the first week of the new release newsletter subscribers will get 10% off of them and trust me you will want them all :D
For my card I thought I would try and keep it simple to show her off. I have inked all round the edges of the card in 3 different colours, Next I stamped the Inkadinkado butterflies out randomly over my inking to almost make my own DP.
The stunning image I coloured with the following pro and flex markers....

Skin: Saffron, Vanilla, Ivory
Hair: Gold, Canary, Lemon
Dress: Indigo blue, True blue, Surf blue
Branch: Bunt Sienna, Cinnamon
Dotty background: Meadow green, Cloud blue, Tea green, pastel green

I have then used Marianne D corners 1 dies to just kind of frame the image and glazed her wings so they shine.

I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend and that you all manged to get your hands on the new beauties when they are released.

Watching It Fly

Hi Peeps,

Oh my goodness, my bottom is killing me. I managed to get out on my bike last night again and accomplished 19 miles, but not sure my bottom can get back on a bike this side of Christmas.  I seem to have injured my knee somehow, not sure how though, so I will give it a rest for a couple of days and see how it goes. If you haven't yet and you'd still like to support me click on the link below.

Oh my the new release at Crafts and Me of Zindy Nielsen's Stamps is just Awesome, awesome, awesome!  Do you think I like them? Don't forget that if your a newletter subscriber you get 10% off during release week, so if your not signed up you might want to now.....

The image I have used is called "Watching It Fly".  Isn't she beautiful.  I have used both cool greys to create black as well as combined with warm greys, a first for me but I actually love the result.

Materials Used:-
Image Watching it fly (soon to be released)

And here's my challenge card from last week, coloured using pencils.....

Thursday 17 May 2012


Hi everyone.  I know I have not been around a lot here lately, but things are still crazy busy here at my house. I started creating this card last week and it has taken me a whole week to finish it.  I used a stamp from Hannah Lynn called "Tatiana" and you can get her her at the Crafts and Me Stamps store.

The whole image was colored with copics and I added some Glimmer Mist to the background.

Well I am off to work more on the house before I have to get into bed.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend to come.

Bottle Hanger

Hi everyone, today I want to show you something else than a card. I made a bottle hanger with one of the gorgeous images by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I chose Pale Rose for it. I love those hangers as I think they are just great to use for a gift. And they are quite easy and quit to make.

I coloured the image with Distress Inks. The background is handstamped as well.

My second project I want to show you today is the card I made for our last challenge, where we asked for Die Cuts and Punches. I used a fabulous image by Meredith Dillman called Diamond.

I coloured with Distress Inks and Pencils.

I wish you a happy day now! 
Hugs, Karina

New Rubber Releases & Hannah Lynn

Hello everyone hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Here by the sea we actually have some sun, we will see tho if it lasts all day...........hope so I have 2 lines of washing out lol.
Anyhoo's have you seen the title of the post? Yeah thats right Teresa has some VERY yummy new rubber available in her store this week & believe when I say they are GORGEOUS!!!
Today I will show you 1 of those new releases................

Isn't she a beauty - this is 'Night Time Fairy' by the uber talented Zindy S.D Nielson. She is coloured with copics & I added glitter to her wings.................I love images with wings they are my favourite of all.

The die-cut tree behind her is the 'Orchid Tree Frame' die by Memory Box, I cut the edge frame away so it just left the tree. The papers are My Minds Eye Be Happy, The die & the fabric flower are both from Crafts & Me Store.
This next card is the 1 I did for the current challenge we have going here.
On my challenge card I used 'Petal Melody' I just love how versatile this stamp is, you really could use it for most occasions.
Image, dies, fabric flower & gesso paint on this card are all from Crafts & Me Store.

I also made 2 cards last week using the new digi images...........well you know me & Hannah Lynn images.......I HAVE to do them...ITS THE LAW!!!!! lol

This first one is 'Vixie', I think she is named after me really you of course I had to give her green eyes like altho my hair is not red lol. Again she was coloured with copics.
The gorgeous fabric flower is from here.

This is 'Dahlia' & she is coloured with copics & I coloured her wings so they still looked translucent.
This one is my favourite of the new digi's as soon as I got her, I printed her straight off & coloured her up. I think she pulls off bright colours beautifully!!!

Well thats it from me but the fabby Rubbah Girlies will be showing you more new releases this week so keep checking back. Also as always with new rubber releases there is 10% off for all newsletter readers during release week.........that gives you more pennies to buy more crafty stash!!
