Cheese! - Incy Wincy DT Make

Good afternoon lovelies!

I've done it again, Bank Holiday has got me all confused with the days! I keep thinking today is Monday - aargh!

So this post for my Incy Wincy DT make is a tad late - sorry!

Our sponsor this week is the fab Scribbles Designs and the lucky winner will receive $10.00 worth of digi images.

The Incy Wincy theme this week is All or Nothing - so lots of layers or none at all. I chose MoVember Boys and here is my make...

Peas - Love - Happiness (Paper Smooches)

Mornin' crafty chums!

How are you? All busy crafting I hope! I'm a bit busy with commissions at the moment, so I thought I would pop in and show you this little make I did for a friend's birthday. It's very CAS and very cute.

What you need...

Stamps: Vegtastic - Paper Smooches
Dies: Vegtastic Icons - Paper Smooches
Card stock: white
Promarkers: Bright Green, Grass, Lime Zest
Ink pad: Licorice Vintage Ink - Ranger

What you do...

Stamp the peas onto white card, colour in and cut out using the relevant die.
Trim the sides from a 15cm square scalloped card.
Mat the peas centrally near the top with foam tape.
Stamp the sentiment underneath in black ink.

Is this too cute or what? Keeping the card completely white really makes those peas 'pop' ('scuse the pun).

So, I'd better say ta-ta for now and get back to those commissions :o) Thank you for stopping by and I'll be back soon xx

Hippo Birthday - Incy wincy DT Make

Good evening lovelies!

We have another fab challenge for you over at Incy Wincy, this week it's 'Exotic Animals' and our lovely sponsor is Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet.

There are some brilliant designers on the Stitchy Bear site and I chose 'Cartoon Happy Hippo Holding a Sign' by Ken Benner.

I've made the hippo purple - don't ask me why, I just he'd look good purple! :o) and I added a sentiment to the sign.

Here is the cheeky chappy...

Illustration by Ken Benner - coloured by me!
What you need...

Card stock: white
Promarkers: Aubergine, Fuchsia Pink, Ice Grey 1, Peony, Purple

What you do...

Re-size the image, add a sentiment to the sign, print onto white card and colour in.
Mat onto a top fold A6 blank so the hippo is at the bottom.

That's it! Done! I think this makes quite a good 'manly' card, as you know they can be notoriously difficult to make for.

Click on the badge below to take you to the Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet or click here to take you direct to the Ken Benner section.

Hello lovely crafters!

Just a reminder to say you have until 23:55 (GMT+1) on the 31st May to get your entries in to win a fab $15.00 gift certificate to spend at the A Day For Daisies store. 

I don't get sponsors for my challenges, the prizes are always from me personally.

This is this month's colour palette...

Yellow Leaves - Design Seeds®

I know colour challenges are always, well... a challenge. But that's good, as it takes us out of our comfort zone and makes us use or put together colours we wouldn't normally do.

Click on the above palette to take you to the challenge page and link-up. I hope to see all your lovely creations!

Sunflower Seeds - Using Cricut® Explore

Hello peepsicles!

Before I show you my 'make' I'd like to say hello and thank you to all my recent new followers. I hope you like what I create and maybe take away with you a little inspiration!

Some thing a bit different from me this time. Last week I sowed some sunflowers and I thought that giving someone a packet of sunflower seeds in a lovely gift bag with printed instructions would make a nice little present.

This is the end result...

What you need...

Digital die image: Sunflower (#M41232) - Stretch Your Imagination Summer Cartridge; Gift Bag (#M17D795) - Creative Bug Cartridge; Graduate Label (#M67822) Summer Soirees Cartridge - Cricut®
Font: Dog Heaven - Lyrical Letters 2 Cartridge - Cricut®
Card stock: black, bright yellow, brown, green (single sided), white
Cricut® Vinyl - Olive
Cricut® Pen - Sour Apple
Gems: clear
Ribbon: yellow

What you do...

Select the images and add to the Design Space.
You will need six sunflowers. 
Re size all the images to suit. 
Insert a text box, type the instructions, edit with Dog Heaven font and place it over one of the white labels. 'Attach' it so that the text will be written directly onto the label. The software will tell you when to insert the pen into the holder.
Insert another text box and type 'Sunflower Seeds', again edit with the Dog Heaven font.
Cut out the sunflowers in yellow, brown and black card, the gift bag in green card, the label layers in brown and white card (one will be done with the writing) and the 'Sunflower Seeds' in Olive vinyl.
Assemble to gift bag, sunflowers and labels. 
Attach the 'Sunflower Seeds' label to the front with three sunflowers. 
Place the instructions label on the back of the bag along with two sunflowers.
Thread yellow ribbon through the holes in the top of the bag, before tying punch a hole in the remaining sunflower and thread onto the ribbon. Tie in a bow at the front.
Add a gem to each sunflower to finish.

It's so amazing the the Explore can write out such intricate lettering, it's fascinating to watch it do it.

If you don't have any single sided colour card stock, cover the scalloped portion with a coordinating patterned paper.

I do hope you like this little project, I had such fun creating it. Thank you for stopping by and I'll be back soon, ttfn! x
