Girlfriends Set by SBS

Betty from Simply B Stamps has a new stamp collection out - the Girlfriends Collection which you can get here at her new etsy shop.

I had the fun of playing with 3 of these amazing images over the last few days....

First up Girlfriend Grace

Next Dreadlock Devina

And Wanda Wraps

I have coloured all these with my Spectrum Noir Pencils which I have just started using while I waited on some copic paper LOL and while I think I am always going to be a copic girl first I will still keep on practicing with the pencils.

Until my next card
Happy colourings

Conchita by SBS

Hi popping in today to share some inspiration with the amazing Conchita image from Simply B Stamps which you can get here. She is one of the images that came out as part of the September a day in 2016 and they are all amazing images!!!

With this image I have done something a bit different..... I have coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pencils.. Yep you got it my first image with pencils. It was a bit scary at first but I really like how she has turned out.

So don't forget to go and have a look at the September images and grab a few because they may not be around much longer.....

Happy crafting.....

Add 2 Desginer Papers

This weeks challenge is up at the Come and Get It Challenge Blog and this week we are after entries with 2 designer papers.

This week polkadoodles is kindly sponsoring us and as I already have a love of their gorgeous images my hardest thing was picking just 1 of their images for this challenge...

I have chosen the sweet little Winnie Sharing is Caring which you can get here or as part of the bundle like I did here

I have paired her with some paper from a Kaisercraft 6x6 pad I had (not sure which one now it was an older one) and some sweet and simple roses. I have matted each layer with white to make the layers pop and inked all the edges with brown distress ink.

Hope you like her and make sure to pop over to the Come and Get It Challenge Blog and add an entry

Happy Crafting...

Miss Minnesota

Hi popping in today with a card I have made using the adorable Miss Minnesota from Simply B Stamps.

I have coloured her with my copics in a monochrome blue scheme which has given her a really wintery feel and finished her of with some sparkly lace border sticker and blue snowflake paper.

This just goes to show that even though these images are based on the state in the US they can still be used for other occasions.. this one will go as a Christmas card this year..

Thanks for looking
Happy Crafting....

Sharing a card today I have made with the super amazing Texas State Girl from Simply B Stamps.....

I have had this one coloured for a while but when Betty said she wanted some inspiration with her 50 State Girls I knew straight away I wanted to get her onto a card.

With just a few brown and blue accents I have turned her into the perfect card for someone who isn't into the florally pastel cards and I really enjoyed doing something a bit simpler and laid back with this one, I think it really makes the image just pop out.

Anyway till next time happy crafting....

Get Creative Challenge #60 - CAS

A new challenge is over at the Get Creative Challenge Blog and the theme this month is CAS, or Clean and Simple for those not in the know....

The idea behind a CAS card is that the image is the center of attention and the focus of the card with very few embellishments.. this challenge I got to play with the very cool pirate ship from Drawn by Krista... and I have made a cute little boy card by adding a sentiment that came with a pirate image I already owned by Simply B Stamps..

Then I added a couple of bits of washi tape with a zig zag pattern and viola a CAS card.

I know a lot of people get scared of CAS cards but why not give it a go and come join us  over on the challenge..

Till then Happy crafting...

ODD Challenge

Hi popping in again with my latest entry for the challenge on the Some Odd Girl Challenge Blog and I have used the optional twist with this challenge of make a gift card holder.

I have turned the front sentiment "You are capable of great things" and stuck it down with 3D tabs to create a little pocket space behind it to put a gift card or some cash into.
I have then added the gorgeous Coy Kaylee and a couple of flowers and viola a card. Sometimes it is amazing how just a few elements can work so well.

Anyway thanks for stopping by and looking
Until next time happy crafting...
