Teddy Bo Tuesday !!!

Hi There Everyone

Hey hope your all having a super bank holiday weekend !!! I LOVE Teddybo and I am addicted . Do you think we should start up an addiction group lol, they are so reasonable to buy and I love how there are new cuties every week !! They are doing a DT call this week so take a look . Good luck , I am going to put my name in too !!

Peek A Boo !!!!

This week it is Teddybo only ! I saw this and thought how much fun to colour !! I figured he was a super sleuth and used Sherlock Holmes as my inspiration. I found a picture poster online of a play by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 1930's and pinched a few quotes. I thought it would be cool for father's day. This suits my wonderful father in law so much as he phones every day to listen  to our wee dilemma's / achievements ( nothing to do with being bored whilst  travelling on the M8 for an hour to get home from work lol) My fella thinks it's a pain but I think it's really sweet.

I have put a wee pocket inside for a voucher and the only embellishments I added were stickles and natural twine. I also turned down a few corners, great with double sided papers.

Recipe :- - Digi image Teddybo 058 on 160g white hobby paper/card
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics & Bo Bunny Timepiece
Medium - Prismacolor pencils blended with sansodor. Distress inks .
Tools - Pc generated text/quotes , Scorpal, Guillotine,Scissors for tearing edges.
embellishments - Natural Twine & Platinum Stickles.

I tried colouring him differently this time without the furry effect lol, does not quite show up as well in picture. Still trying all the browns so have not conquered that yet !!

Thank you so much to you all for the wonderful comments last week, they really inspire me !!

Bye For Now

Sketch & Sparkle !!

Hi Everyone
This is the second and last post for this week. I love sketches they are my favourite challenges so I am entering this  at Just Magnolia Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge - Week 107. I chose this gorgeous Tilda from The Butterfly Dreams Collection. There are so many stamps to choose from it is difficult to pick one lol !

I have coloured her with prismacolor pencils blended with sansador. I have added Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist to her and edged with stickles platinum for lots of sparkle and shine which is this weeks challenge for Simon Says Stamp .

I have left this a topper for now . The colours are more vivid than in the picture. I tried to colour her very lightly to compliment the darker papers.
I hope you like the crazy stitching I think I used a wrong bobbin and it came out like this on one side but I quite liked the effect lol !
I would also like to enter this into the paperplay challenges - week 20 Sparkle Galore

Recipe -
Cardstock - Bo Bunny & Bazzill basics.
Medium - Prismacolor pencils blended with sansador stamped with mommento black ink on 240gsm white card. Distress inks for background for Tilda
Tools - Tim Holtz Keyhole die which I cut out & Wings . Sewing Machine. Cuttlebug
Embellishments - WOC flowers. Half back pearls from Ebay. Anita Butterfly glitter butterfly sticker which I distressed. Stickles platinum & Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist.

I noticed this week another blog with virtually the same card as I have posted on here before ! I was quite pleased in a way because someone liked my idea but also a bit disappointed !! Just as well it's only a hobby . I think it's okay to get ideas and do your own take on it but a whole card is cheeky ! I just sell some items on ebay to buy more crafting goodies. What do you think crafters ?

Thanks for visiting have a great week.

LOTV Challenge 97 - Here comes summer .

Hi Crafters /Bloggers

The weather is so awful here today , gale force winds and heavy rain. I am not to fussed as I have stayed in, all cosy and crafting !!!. I have chosen this beautiful stamp to colour with distress inks.

I also used sakura jelly roll pens in silver and white. I had an idea that they would be having a picnic on a checked blanket. So I cut the bottom of the image off placed the paper on and put the cut out back on . I also added some doily edging from my Martha Stewart punch.

I added lots maybe too much lol !. I made my own glimmer mist with perfect pearls , water and Distress ink reinker in a mist spray bottle. I used this on a clock I cut out from Bo Bunny Timepiece papers and on the flowers to make them shimmer. I also did this to the letters I cut with my cuttlebug.

Hope you are all having a good week and are having lots of crafty fun !! Sorry for bad pics my teenager daughter changes all the settings and I can never get it back !!! to the way I use it.

Recipe -
Card stock - Nitwits & Raspberry Road Digi papers on Bazzil Basics card.
Mediums - Distress Inks . Sakura Jelly Roll Pens.
Embellishments - Pink Lace, Metal Flower ,Teapot Coral Charm from Ebay. Flowers from WOC.

LOTV Challenge 96 - Ribbons & Bows

Hi Crafters / Bloggers

Hope your week is going well. I have made a lovely card using my favourite LOTV stamp . Loved fairies when I was a kid my imagination would run wild. !

The pictures are too light !! Just as well my hobby is not photography lol. I used  my distress inks to paint her and lots of stardust stickles. I put a touch of flowersoft at the bottom too. I enjoyed making a flower with seam binding which I distressed with spun sugar then pleated and  sewn in the middle, to which I added a handmade flower !. I used the Bo Bunny Flora Collection papers " pixie garden " . They are stunning ! I made a double ribbon bow to finish it off.  I am afraid no recipe today as must dash to work . Time certainly does fly !.

Bye For Now and Thankyou for visiting

I have tried Digi Stamps !!!

Hi Crafters / Bloggers

I have had a lovely relaxing day crafting. I have decided to take the plunge and try some digi stamps. I picked Teddybo because they are so cute. The service is just wonderful too. If you have not tried them it is really easy and they can help as I was terrified as my fella was at work and he is the pc genius !

I thought I would do a Father's day card with these wonderful tags ! Tried to colour them and get a furry effect ! I put on the tags " Promise loads of hugs" , " Promise to wash the car " & " Promise not to squabble" lol.  Thought it would be great for a wee boy and girl to give to a wonderful Dad !.
I have used Nitwits papers too which I downloaded. They are gorgeous and coordinate so well. I made these wee pockets for the tags to fit it on the easel card.

I would like to enter this card into The Teddybo Challenge - Easel Cards
