Faery Ink Little Princess

I have another cute image to share with you all today for Faery Ink. This cutie is called Little Princessand is one of Amanda's Earth Day themed images. As I'm not overly confident as even attempting to colour the planet in different colours, I went with a bright orange and blue combo.

I added the image to a page in my quotes journal with this great quote I found on Pinterest. Looking at it now thought I wish I had used different colours for it - that's a lot of orange! LOL

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post - Princess

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post this week for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I am totally in love with all the Polka Dot Pals at the minute, so you will probably be seeing lots of these digi stamps on my DT projects for Little Miss Muffet Stamps! 
This week I have used Polka Dot Pals Princessand went for a red and black combo. I absolutely love her dress and those cute ringlets too! I draw her nose and mouth on again and think this one came out much better this time - I just needed a bit of practise and used colours I was confident with!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #336 - Use Die Cuts

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is another popular one - use die cuts. If you're anything like me, you will have hundreds of dies to choose from, so I pulled out a few different ones and made a very early Christmas card to add to my stash ready for December!

I used the gorgeous Santa's Helper for this one and added some hanging snowflakes, a snowflakes flourish, some presents, an icicle border and a sentiment all with my dies.

Alicia Bel's Smug Little Mermaid

Good evening everyone! I thought I would make another card for the team challenge over at Alicia's Bel's Facebook group today using some of the clay pieces I have moulded. I bought some coloured air dry clay from Amazon in one of those lightning deals, not really expecting it to be very good as it was fairly cheap, but it's not bad at all and dried really well and kept the shape and imprint of the moulds too.

I used the adorable Smug Little Mermaid for this card and made a cute scene with the clay pieces after cutting her and the crab out and using my distress oxide inks for my a background. I think I need more of these to be honest as 2 colours don't really give enough depth!

Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Post - Fairy and her Bunny

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post this week for Whimsy Stamps. I decided to use the Fairy and her Bunny stamp from Marina Fedotova this time - these images are fast becoming some of my faves. Love fairies and these ones are just the cutest! The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes Sentiment set as well.

I took complete inspiration from a card I saw in the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration group on Facebook by Amy Young and added a tree to the branch, so it didn't look like she was just floating in the air. Thank you Amy for the idea and I hope you don't mind me borrowing it!

As always the challenge is Anything Goes and we would love to see your creations using Little Miss Muffet Stamps, although you don't have to. Have a look in the store and you will find an amazing range of stamps, rubber and digi, to suit everyone!

I used the adorablePolka Dot Pals Dakotafor this one. I don't have any police themed sentiments or anything that could really be used other than generic ones, so used one of my alphabet stamp sets to create the stop right there! sentiment as I thought it was something the police would probably say!

Alicia Bel Happy Unicorn

Good morning! I am joining in this month with the challenge Animals and Fantastic Beasts in the Wornderful World of Alicia Bel Facebook group. I used to be on Alicia's DT a while ago and love her images, so thought I would join in for this team challenge. These challenges are different to the usual ones - you work as a team submitted projects using certain images and then Alicia sends clues for you to guess the secret image!

So anyway this is my first card using the adorable Happy Unicornand I inked up some clouds for the background to make it look as if she was flying through them! A really quick and easy, yet pretty card!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Demera Spring Breeze Fae

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink today! I have used the gorgeous Demera Spring Breeze Fae, which was the One Day Fae Giveawayfor last month. If you didn't manage to get her for free, you will be able to buy her here in the store shortly.

I used the light lines version of her, which I always find more tricky to colour, but I love the effect of the no lines colouring! I went with nice, bright Spring colours and added a few flowers and butterfly dies, The butterfly in her hair was a much needed cover up as my new Wink of Stella pen blobbed on her hair! Grrr! Butterflies are a fab way to cover up those kind of mistakes!

Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Rose

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for theChing-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week the DT were challenged to a monochrome colour scheme, so I just had to use my favourite pinks on this one and used the gorgeous and suitably named Rose image for my card, which is available in this set of 4 Girls with Flowers.

In my mission to use up some of my old patterned papers, I used the long time retired Subtles papers from Stampin' Up and slowly I am getting through the pinks that I was saving for a special card. No point in saving something for "special" as I never use it!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post - Fialka

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This week I have used the gorgeous Polka Dot Pals Fiakla for my card and coloured her with my Copics. I actually forgot to use the add on faces so attempted to follow Barbara's cheeks and nose tutorial for creating the nose and mouth.

I will admit the first attempt was awful, so I re-did just her face after botching it over and over, cut it out and glued it on the top of this one. I had coloured the hair and everything else to see if it would make the original face better, but it didn't :(  I didn't have E30 as it has run out and I haven't bought the reinker for it yet, so used YR30 which was the closest on my hex chart and I think it made the skin too yellowy. But this is how you learn I guess!

I definitely need some practice on doing this as I just couldn't get it to look right! The nose is still a bit wonky!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #334 Use Flowers

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. Our challenge is a nice and easy one this time - use flowers. You could use a flowery image, use flowered papers or add some flower embellishments.

I used the gorgeous Enchanting Butterflies and added lots of butterfly die cuts as well as some pretty flowers. I went for a purple and turquoise colour combo to match the butterfly papers I bought a while ago and love this combo!

Ching-Chou Kuik Challenge Favourite Colours

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the new challenge from theChing-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This month or challenge is for you to use your favourite colours. I have lots of colours I love, but tend to use lots of pink and purple in my cards, so I went for a pink, purple and grey combo using the gorgeous Misty Moon Grayscale image.

I bought a silver frame for this A4 sized colouring which goes really well with it. I will admit it took me hours to do especially all the sky using little dots, but I love how it came out! This one is going on my bedroom wall once I find some nails!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Top Of The World Maggie

Good afternoon and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink for today. This year on April 22nd it is Earth Day and Amanda asked me to use this gorgeous digi stamp, Top of the World Maggie, to help celebrate it and bring awareness to its cause, which this year focuses on plastic use reduction.

Anyway here's Maggie....I loved this image and she was such fun to colour! I went with a golden blonde hair combo as I wanted her to have a bit of sunlight in her as she is on top of the world!

I had to find a sentiment for her and managed to add several short ones together to create this one and I think it really fits this image!

Whimsy Stamps New Release - Say Cheese Sentiments

Good Morning and welcome to my first new release post this month for Whimsy Stamps. I am using a large combination of stamps for this project but mostly using the new Say Cheese Sentiments - a great set for adding sentiments to scrapbook pages as well as to cards and other projects.

I combined the photo strip images with 3 other penguin images - Penguin Teacher (which is also a new release this month), Penguin Easter Bunny and Penguin Lucky Shamrock. I just simply cropped and adjusted each penguin head to fit inside the white boxes on the photo strip. I love this idea and can't wait to use it again!
