Dolly Girl! (Squiggle Stamps DT Card)...

Hi all!
I'm here (in between nursing sick children with a nasty flu bug!) to share a Squiggle Stamps DT creation with you. Have you seen this adorable new digi yet? She's called 'Dolly Girl', and you can find her here. Isn't she adorable?

I coloured her using Copics.
Most of the digi papers and the sentiment stamp are both from Pink Gem Designs.

I've gone a bit mad with my card, adding lots of flowers, pearls, a large dose of Stickles and lots of pink! I wanted to make it really girly and OTT!

I used a Craftwork Cards 'Elegance' card blank. I love the shape of these!

I used Spellbinders labels 1 dies, and 'out of the boxed' the top of her head.

I also used my trusty Martha Stewart Doily punch.

Don't forget to check out our talented new DT members. If you visit the Squiggles Blog you'll see some of the gorgeous creations they've already been busy making.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi all!
Hope you are enjoying your weekends? Thanks so much for all the lovely, and very much appreciated comments on yesterday's card!

Today I have a DigiStamp Boutique DT Card to share with you.

I have used my favourite bear ever...Coco!
This image is called 'Coco & Big Heart' can find him here.

I used my Copics to colour him.
I love colouring Coco....infact I find it incredibly therapeutic! I can quite easily spend the best part of an hour going over, and over him trying to make him look really 'fluffy'!

The heart paper is a Pink Petticoat download and as you can see, I also used it to paper piece his heart. I added some subtle sparkle to the white sash with a clear Copic glitter pen.

Other ingredients;
DigiStamp Boutique Birthday Sentiments,
Go Kreate scalloped circle die,
X Cut Leaf punch,
Paper flowers - Papermania And Pink Gem Designs.
Cotton Candy Stickles,
Angel Pink Memento ink,
I also used Card Candy and pearl hearts.
I will put this into the challenge over at COPIC CREATIONS.....'something new' (my Papermania capsule flowers and DSB Birthday Sentiments)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Picked For You! (Squiggle Stamps DT Card)...

Hi all! First I would like to apologise for being really rubbish again lately, and falling behind with paying you a visit and leaving you some comments. There just aren't enough hours in the day for me right now, and I hope to sort out some candy soon to make up for it.
So without further ado, here's my Squiggle Stamps DT card.
I thought I'd share a 'Spring' creation with you today to remind us what a bit of lovely sunshine feels like after all the dreadful weather of late!
I have used the adorable 'Picked For You' digi, also available as rubber here, and coloured it using Copics.

The bright papers are; My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy - Tickled Pink.
I thought I'd have a go at gathering up some satin ribbon down the side to create a border.

Don't forget there's a Squiggle Stamps DT call on at the moment. More details here.
Thanks so much for looking :-)

A Gem Of A Challenge 12...Debby's Sketch!....

Hi all! Have you missed me over Christmas?! I've missed crafting and blogging....and of course visiting your blogs!

Well I'm back now to tell you about our new challenge over at A Gem Of A Challenge. A super sketch by Debby for you to follow this time;

....and look and the fab prize we have up for grabs generously offered by Letraset!

Did you know we are now going from monthly to fortnightly, and have exciting things planned to celebrate A Gem Of A Challenges 1st Birthday in a few weeks.

For my DT creation, I have used the very cute 'Andy With Snail' available as a polymer stamp from Pink Gem Designs. The matching sentiment is also from Pink Gem Designs and you can grab it here.

To colour the image I used my beloved Copics, which I have been neglecting just lately in favour of Promarkers. But I really do love my Copics, and will make a point of using them a lot more this year. I also hear a rumour that there will be new colours released this year in the Copic Ciao range?

The papers are Basic Grey Max'n'Whiskers.
I also used a Craft Concepts Starry Night embossing folder.
Potters Clay Memento ink (to ink edges)
Ribbon, raffia, charms.
I printed the name 'Ben' from my pc.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you join us at A Gem Of A Challenge!

Look What's New!...

Look at these fabby 'Oh Boy' digital papers that Janet has been busy designing. Just one of many new sets now available over at Pink Gem Designs.
Anyway, long time no see! Hope you all had a great Christmas & New Year. I have had a very hectic time, as you do with four children! With coughs & colds, a broken boiler, I've had no chance to craft or blog. But I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things now, and hope to make something new in the next few days.
Back tomorrow with my DT card for a brand new Gem Of A Challenge. Luckily I was organised and started my DT card before Christmas thank goodness!
