My Time To Craft DT - Loki vs Thor

Good Morning! 

What a week. Be nice to sit with my feet up. Only thing is, no football. Boooo! 
Anyways, another saturday so that means another challenge over at My Time To Craft.
This weeks challenge is:

"Use two of the same or different images on one card"
I thought I'd not have any ideas for this but the card I have done was one of those lightbulb moments. The title does slightly give it away tho lol.The images I'd sat and coloured a while ago so decided to use them. 

Now, for anyone that knows me, I am a geek when it comes to my comic books and comic films. I do prefer Marvel to DC Comics tho, trust me, this causes a rift with a friend of mine! One of my fave characters is Loki, he is the brother of Thor. So when Simply Betty did the digi's, I HAD to have them! 

Here's what I've come up with:

The card itself is pretty much made up with digi images. Loki and Thor are from Simply Betty and the background digi's are from Make It Crafty. I have used three images for the background, full-moon, spooky-tree and squiggle-garden. Everything has been coloured using Spectrum Noir pens. The lightening around Thor's hammer has been drawn free hand. Both Loki and Thor are raised away from the card as well.

Keep an eye out for a few more superhero cards ;) 
And please come by the blog and play along :)

My Time To Craft DT - All About The Love

Good Morning! 

A "lovely" challenge over at My Time To Craft this week. Yep, you guessed it, it's "all about the love" and getting ready for Valentine's Day. Now, I must admit, I don't really do Valentine's Day but I have made this card in mind to give to someone. Whether or not that happens is another thing! 

So, here's what I've come up with...
Full Card

Thought I'd go with someat a bit different and non traditional and used lime green! Obviously I had to use a heart on it somewhere and what better image to use than the little Meople lass from C.C Designs. I do love these little dudes. A little sentiment, also part of the set. A bit of twine n a button. I don't like putting too many embellishments on cards for men. Think that's just enough tho. 

Image and sentiment

Dimension

Suppose I best do the inside just incase I do decide to give it to it's intended recepient. 
Please do pop by and play along.

My Time To Craft DT - Easel Card

Good Morning! 

It's that time of the week again for another challenge over at My Time To Craft. This week we have an awesome challenge, 

"Easel Cards"

It's been a while since I made one of these but my days did I enjoy it! It's given me an idea for another one though. 
Full Card

I'm still not convinced on her hair tho. For blonde, I think it's a bit bright?! I also wanted to step away from the norm as well and use some different colours. I always end up using the same colours and I have sooooooo much paper I can use. The image is a Saturated Canary digi image. I do love these images. I've used quite a few different embellishments too. Think I've gone a bit OTT. The butterflies have been punched out. I love the sentiment on this card too. Again was printed off the computer, "Style is knowing who you are, what you want, and not giving a damn" 

Here's a few more pictures:


 Off to have a look round a few blogs..

Blooms and Pearls

Good Morning! 

For a change, it's actually dry here and the sun has popped his head out...I spoke to soon. It's raining.
I do love the inbetween seasons, winter into spring, summer into autum are my faves. You see some most gorgeous colours.. which is the inspiration I used to make this card. 

I wanted something quite bright and fresh for this card but still a hint of winter, so the yellow represents the sprint coming and the purple represents the last ends of winter. 

This is what I've done...

Full Card
The circle is die-cut out of both the papers and the whole panel is raised. I wasn't sure on the bow to start with but it does tie in.. haha.. no pun intended there! The butterflies are punched out with pearls been added to the bodies. I really hope Mary likes it! 

Here's a few more pics...

Oh so Gorjuss....

Afternoon Peeps! 

Today is one of those days that I love to hate.. Lots of football to watch but it's miserable and I just can't get warm. Think I will sit by the radiator in a sec! 

Anyways, I did have a little bit of creative moment earlier and came up with a card using a Gorjuss Girl. I do love these little girls. They are super cute. I've used green and pink for the colour scheme.
Do you find that you tend to use the same colours? 

So, here is the Gorjuss Girl.. 

Full Card
 She's been coloured using Spectrum Noirs and then cut out. The background that she's on it glittered but you can't really tell in picture. I added the gems to add a bit of black to tie all the colours in. 

Here's a few more pics...


I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges, plus a DT call:

1. Totally Gorjuss - Ribbon
2. Allsorts - Free & Easy
3. 2 Sisters - DT Call

Off to watch another football game...

My Time To Craft DT - Music or Movie Influenced

Morning Peeps! 

Back to normal after all the festivites. I must admit, ours was nice and chilled out. No running around and stressing out. So with that, it's back into blogland with a new challenge over at My Time To Craft.

This weeks theme is 

"Music or Movie Influenced" 

I've had this digi from Kenny K for ages and never made a card using her, until now! 

Full Card
Got to love a bit of Marilyn Monroe and I think it fits this perfectly. She has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs. I was going to put her on a filmset background but opted for the white with a splash of red, true Marilyn style. The sentiment reads " Dreaming about being an actress is more exciting than being one" I wonder how many can relate to that? Added a few pearls n flowers to finish off the card.

Here's a few more pictures:

Think I'm going to brave the elements and walk up to the craft shop.
