Phew, what a long title and there are LOTS of pics today so make yourselves comfy chicksters xxx
Firstly, hi lovely peeps and hope you are all OK.
I’ve been a bit lacking on the posting front due to a horrible cold that my dear little Kyla passed on to me. Well we have to take the rough with the smooth I suppose!! But before we get to today’s card, remember my post here when I asked if you knew what was in the box?
Well I am obviously very predictable because the first peep that got it right was actually the first peep that guessed so Sonia my love, if you e-mail me I will arrange to get your flowers off to you pdq and hugest of apols for being so slooooooowww sorting it out.
Now before I do me post today I have to tell you that next week Papertake Weekly is 3!! So we are doing something a bit special so make a date in your diary to come and join us.
And today over at the challenge we have a little sketchie for you and here ….
… is the very chap. It’s actually one of my faves this one
And this is what I did with it.
This lovely little H&S girlie was stamped for me by my good friend who better remain nameless but she knows who she is xxx
I coloured her with Copics and I used these colours -
BV0000, BV00, BV02, E00, E21, E42, E50, R11, R20, V000, V12, V91
No guessing where these oh so pretty papers are form peeps?
Of course they are from the beautisimous Pink Petticoat and I used Stripes, Gingham and Pretty Little Hearts in ‘lovely’.
The ribbon was from my stash and the sweet little roses are from the one and only Wild Orchid Crafts
And 2 dimensional pics to finish.
OK so now I’m going to share something with you that I should have posted earlier in the week but my cold had other ideas.
This was the card I did for last weeks Pink Petticoat’s pretty pastels inspiration.
I made the flowers using some of the solid papers which I just LOVE because they ensure that it all matches and co-ordinates beautifully.
And when you open the card up …….,
……. out they ‘pop’, all glittery and pretty.
This card is really easy to make and I did intend to do a little tutorial but I just haven’t felt well enough to sort it.
But here’s where you can see exactly how it’s done and it probably makes more sense than one of me tutorials would anyway!!!
So I hope that it inspires you to have a go.
I think that this card would make a lovely Christmas card if you used shades of reds and golds and made the edges more pointy so that the flowers looked more like poinsettias.
Wow this is a long post today peeps and I hope that you are still with me lol xxx I’m off now to do something nice with red, black and white ribbons and I’ll see you soon if not sooner.
Have a great day and hugs to all xxx
