Masculine again!

At Glitter n Sparkle this week, we are being sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter.
The image I used for the "Fathers Day / Masculine" challenge, is:
Boy with Kite.


I thought he would be a really cute image to use
 for a masculine card, for a little boy.
Apart from colouring with my alcohol pens,
embossing the edge and 
raising the whole image on 1mm 3d foam pads, 
That's all I did with this image. 
I felt it needed to be kept clean and simple. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lazy days

I have had 2 birthdays to make a card for this week...
 My best friend - Craig, and a work colleague, Val.

Being the time of year it is, I thought these images would work wonderfully.


Craig is a foster carer and I think he would love
a scene like this in his life... as it's usually very chaotic for him!
His cat in this scene, would make it all the more perfect for him,
and a little more quiet and chilled for his cat, I think! 
I bought some sheets of these images, but I don't remember the make...sorry!
I added some papers from my stash. The knotty paper strips accross the middle
and up the right hand side, comes
from a docrafts seaside set. 
I embossed a line around the image and added a pc sentiment,
I hand made the little bunting by freehand-cutting
small triangles and using my white sakura pen to put on little patterns.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative fingers - atg - 26 June
Fussy and Fancy - pamper your pets - 25 June
QKR Stampede - for the guys - 16 June
Crafty animals - atg with an animal - 1 July
Through the purple haze - use an animal - 14 June



I made this card in a very similar way.
These images are just beautiful. 
All the backing papers came from the docrafts seaside set -
 it is quite an old set.
 Infact, I think I bought it a few years ago... very, very cheaply.
Val went for her holiday in Llandudno recently, so I thought she would like this image.

Cheeky Monkey.

are the sponsors for our challenge this week, at Glitter n Sparkle.

I got the image "cheeky monkey"...


...which I think is so so cute!

I made a sentiment on the pc, while printing off the image.
I coloured with my alcohol markers
and embossed around the edge.
The backing paper is one out of my much-too-large collection!
I punched the leaves, flowers and the butterfly.

For the boys

"For the boys / Use a masculine image"
is this months challenge at Patties Creations. 

I thought a little outside the box and went for the...
"baby clothes duckie set."


As well as all the items on the washing line,
 you also get a baby grow and a baby cardi in the set!

But of course, you can use this set for a baby boy OR a girl, 
depending on what colours you use. 
A fabulous bargain!

I made a little washing line form thin wire, and curled the ends around a pencil.
Also, I embossed the background piece with swiss dots
and used one of my new bargain dies. ..
the scallop and stitched circle.
It's the largest one in a set of 3 scalloped circles, and then there's 
a little flower die in the middle ( not used on this card).
I bought the set of 4 dies in  "The Works " for a measley £3!
I love a bargain.

Pink and one other


We have Kenny K sponsoring us this week at Glitter n Sparkle
and the image I used was: Jeannie - pretty Genie 


This is such a cute image to colour, and perfect for our 
"white and one other colour"
challenge.

As you can see, I chose pink as my other colour!
I fussy cut around the image and bottle after colouring with my alcohol pens
and I added some spots of white here n there too. 
I embossed the background with the stars
embossing folder, which I thought would go well with Jeannie.
I coated jeannies clothing in "wink of stella" - a glitery subtle sheen,
which is beautiful, but a nightmare to photograph!
A simple sentiment (from Pink Petticoat -who sadly, is no longer trading)
finished off the card.

Can you guess the film I have been inspired by?


Haha...
yes... it's quite obvious.
"Wizard of Oz."

The lovely "lollipop munchkin" image is from Lacy Sunshine.
I coloured the image with my alcohol markers
and added a sweetie border... it's actually
a strip of border from a piece of 12 x 12 christmas paper!
A couple of butterflies and a pink petticaot sentiment

A card for a female

This month, over at Patties Creations,
the challenge is...
"for the girls."


I have been after an excuse to use this image "country shelf" for a while. 
It didn't disappoint!

I used it to make a card for my Mother in Law.
(and I shall be making another version for my Mum, ]for her birthday,
in a couple of months  - as I know
she would love this too.)

I coloured the image first, 
then hunted through all my papers to find matching coloured
sheets to use.
Could I find anything like, in all my stash?
No!!
So... I hand coloured some white card, 
with my spectrum noirs and promarkers -
the same ones I had coloured the images with! 
Am I mad? Maybe...

I popped the image on 3d pads so it would stand off the card a little. 
The bottom white edge and the cat are diecut
 and the bottom edge of the blue, is punched.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Great impressions - feminine - 2 June
Lil patch of crafty friends - atg - 20 May
Catch the bug - atg - 13 May
QKR Stampede - mothers day / 12 May
