Blue Topaz

Hello and good morning everyone, Karina here today to show you some inspiration. Winter arrived here in Switzerland, we had our first snow two days ago... sigh. Well, the card I want to share with you today is made with one of the newest images by Sara Burrier. She is called Blue Topaz. I wanted to create here in green tones. I coloured her with Copics.

Here you can see a close up of the image. I added some glitter to her wings and to the lantern.

Wish you a wonderful day now!
Hugs, Karina

Good morning everyone!

Mona here. Allthough i`m on the digi team i want to show you a card i made using one of the gorgeous rubber stamps in the Crafts and Me shop. It is called Believe and it is designed by Zindy S.D. Nielsen, available here.

I coloured her up with my ProMarkers. Several of them are available here. I absolutely love Zindy`s images course they are so lifelike. She is such a great artist. Another thing with her images is that they are a bit bigger than most stamps, so it is a little bit easier to colour those small details. You get and idea of the size when i tell you that the card is a 6x6".

I also want to show you the card i made for the last digi challenge. Here i have used an image from another fav artist of mine....Hannah Lynn. This image is called Frenchie Friends Michelle and Jojo. You can find it here. I think this one is so cute.

The pearls i used on the butterflies you can order here.

Yesterday the new challenge, hosted by the rubbah team, went live. The theme is fantasy creatures. So if you feel this is something you want to play with, you are more than welcome to join in on the fun. The team has made some incredibly beautiful samples for your inspiration. So make sure to visit the Crafts and Me challengeblog to enter.

Well, that`s it from me today. Thanks for visiting!

Hi there Everyone!!!

It's Karen here and today I am showing you all another gorgeous Image designed by Hannah Lynn... This one is called Teya....

I've coloured her with my copics and added some sparkles to the hair with some black glitter... although you probably can't see it that well in the pic, but it does look pretty in real life!!

Teya is available in the store right now, along with a bunch of other gorgeous images:-) Don't forget to check out the wonderful new storage solutions that are now available.

Also a new challenge would have just started - so I'm sure the girls would love you see you play along!!

Pumpkin fairy and Summers day.

Good morning all.I hope you are all well and warm,its not very warm in my part of the UK this morning.It is my turn (Coops) to share a couple of cards with you today.I have got 2 very different styles today.For my first card i have used the fabulous silhouette digi stamp PUMPKIN FAIRY.
I have to be honest and say that this has not turned out how i had wanted it to but here it is
She is a beautiful silhouette and i just coloured the background and drew in the cobweb.
I also cut another pair of her wings out and glittered them and then stuck them down so that they are raised up.

And a close up.
My second card is the one i made for the current Crafts and Me challenge which you still have a little time to join in with.The theme is pearls and lace so perfect for getting all girly.
For my card i have used the pretty SUMMERS DAY digi stamp.
I went all out pink for this one, i loved colouring in all her lovely hair.
And a close up for you.
A stunner isn`t she.
Thanks so much for looking and do pop over to the Crafts and Me store to check out all the latest goodies in store.

Happy Halloween

Hello everyone, hope you're doing fine! Karina here today, and I want to show you how you can create a Halloween card with a non typical Halloween image. Just with choosing autumnal colours and the matching embellishments and sentiments. What do you think? Does it look like a Halloween card?

I used one of my fave images by the fabulous artist Hannah Lynn. It is called 'Geneviève'. To give her a more mystical touch I coloured her orange eyes, just as her hair is. Hope you like my Halloween project.

I coloured her with Copics. And the background paper is from Memory Box ' Blackbird. The spider web die is Memory Box as well. Both, paper and die is available at Crafts and Me as well.

Have a wonderful day now!
Hugs, Karina

Something Different

Hi Everyone,

I have something rather different to show you today.  I have created a Flower using some of the punches coming soon to Crafts and Me.  It's a really simple card which looks far better in real life than in the photo but I really wanted to show off the flower, what do you think?

The next two cards are my recent challenge cards:-

This is Blue Topaz available of course from Crafts and Me

And this is April's Diamond

Have a good weekend.
Hugs Tracy x

April's Diamond

Hello and good morning everyone, have you already seen? The new images from Sara Burrier are available now at Crafts and Me. If not you have to take a look at them as they are so beautiful. One of them is 'April's Diamond'. I just love her. See below what I made with her. I wanted to make a romantic card with a vintage touch.

 I coloured her with Distress Inks. Below you can see a close up of the image. I added some sparkling on her wings.

This card I made for our last challenge where we had the theme Favourite Colour. Mine is definitely brown and earth tones, but I love quite some other colours as well. This totally depends on my mood and is definitely seasonal as well. The digi team started a new challenge today where they want to see sentiments. We hope to see you joining us.

Have a wonderful day now. Seems to be a sunny autumnal day today... beautiful!
Hugs, Karina
