Something Else on Saturday #11 Featuring Loire from Sweet November Stamps

Good evening and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I thought I would share with you all another mermaid card, seeing as it's Mer-May this month. This beauty is Loire from Sweet November Stamps and using Amy Young's colouring here as inspiration, I created a night time scene for her. I am in absolute awe of Amy's scenic colourings and so want to be her when I grow up! LOL

As the coloring is quite big (I think it's about 5 inch square), I kept the rest of the card quite simple as there just wasn't enough room to do much more to be honest! Isn't she just beautiful though?!

Wishing You A Pawsome Day!

Good afternoon and welcome to my post for today! I had some crafting time last weekend, colouring lots of fun images and just had to colour up these cute kitties for the latest challenge from Lawn Fawntics, Pet Love.

We have a very pretty, but boisterous cat Tallulah, who was my inspiration for the colours of my cats on this card. She looks like butter wouldn't melt in this photo doesn't she?! LMAO

Anyway onto the card...

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Arielle & The Seahorse

Good morning! It's my turn to share an inspiration post on the Faery Ink Blog today, so I used one of the new mermaids images from the Faery Ink Store to celebrate Mer-May! Love that a whole month is dedicated to mermaids - one of my favourite images to colour!

Tiddly Inks Wryn Wishes

Good evening and welcome to another of my random posts. I am a bit ahead of all my DT assignments at the minute, so today's crafting day was all just for fun projects. I coloured up this image of Wryn absolutely ages ago for the Tiddly Inks Fall Colours challenge, but I never got round to making her into a project in time so she has been in my coloured images folder ever since!

This time though I have got her onto a card and found some matching papers and card stock too! Burgundy/dark red and mango are not colours I would have picked to go together but I love the contrast between them.

Something Else on Saturday #10 Featuring Your Wish from Craftin' Desert Divas

Good morning and Happy Saturday! For this week's Something Else on Saturday post, I am using a stamp set that I have owned for well over a year now, but have never used! I have loads more like this too, where I impulse buy them and then never get round to using them! My plan this year, with this post each week, is to start using these stamps that are collecting dust!

Anyway...I loved these cute little genies when they were first released and just had to have them - it's just a shame they are not available here in the UK and paying international shipping is almost as much as the stamp sets themselves!

I went for a bright colour combo and then realised that I didn't have much patterned paper that really matched, so used some older Stampin' Up Papers and then created an inked clouded sky for them all to sit on instead!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #382 Colour It!

Good morning and welcome to my new DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is called "Colour It!", so you need to include some colouring on your project. A really easy one with all the gorgeous digital stamps from the Paper Shelter Store to choose from!

I used the fairly new My Little Dragon Army for my card and just love this image! I love this cute Viking girl and her pet dragon is just the cutest! I kept my colours fairly neutral/natural and just added some ribbon in a turquoise to match the colours on the image and a few gems to match the dragon too.

Something Else on Saturday #9 Featuring Cheeky Monkey from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week I have used the adorable Cheeky Monkey set from Clearly Besotted to make a jungle themed birthday party card with loads of swinging monkeys. Aren't they just the cutest?!

I stamped lots of the branches from the set and then added my own vines and leaves and another longer branch at the bottom before fussy cutting all the monkeys and accessories! Those tiny hats, cupcakes etc were very fiddly, but I don't have the dies to go with them.

Sweet November Fairy in the Field!

Good evening and welcome to my post today. I have used the adorable Flora Sweetbrier digi stamp with the Tree #3 both from Sweet November Digital Stamps, available from 7 Kids Crafts and also added some other toadstool and flower digi stamps.

When I first put this scene together, I just wanted to make a big image to colour to practise various techniques and I really like how it came out. However, when it came to making something with it, the colouring was so big that it just about fit on a card and therefore I kept it really plain and simple (so unlike me!).
