Dude

I've used a cute new Pollycraft stamp for CC Designs today called Dude. And YES he's very Cool!


I decided to try to make the card a bit "grungy" for a 20 something surfer.  So after colouring him and making the card I used a small paint brush with white craft ink dipped in water and splattered over it. I was hoping for a surf spray kind of effect and I was pretty happy with how it turned out :)

Ingredients :
Stamps : Dude, Pool Party
Card : x-press it, crumb cake, Uncharted Waters (Glitz)
Ink : memento black, white, antique linen D.I
Other : Big stitched and pierced rectangles die, hemp twine, black pearls, copics

Copics used :
BG 0000, 000, 9, 10, 11, 72
W 00, 1
E 000, 00, 21, 50, 53, 55
R 20, 24. 30

Millie

It's new release time again at CC Designs :)
There are a lot of fun, summery new designs and this cutie is one of my favourites.
It's a Pollycraft stamp called Millie.
Isn't she sweet?!






I decided to try making a watermelon for the card base and it's a Rocker Card - so it's fun and interactive too!  I was really happy with how it turned out.

I used the By DIEzyne Pierced Half Circles Dies.  I folded a piece of limeaid cardstock in half and used the largest die. Then I sponged old olive ink on the outside of it.  Then I used the next sized die to cut poppy cardstock and sponged real red on the outside and white in the middle.  This red section is cut in half. The seeds are actually made using the raindrops from the Little Cloudy Outline Die.

The sentiment is from a great new set called Pool Party.  It's full of great summery sayings, but they can be used all year round.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Millie, Pool Party
Card : x-press it, black, limeaid, poppy
Ink : memento black, olive, real red, white
Other : By DIEzyne Pierced Half Circles Dies, Little Cloudy Outline Die, white pen, copics

Ready For The Rain


I had some time to do some crafting today and I decided to use this super-cute new stamp from CC Designs called Ready For The Rain.  She is SO sweet!




I had fun colouring her and then found a great sketch at Sketch Saturday to use too.  I used the By DIEzyne  rectangles die to create the panels and just trimmed them to a narrower size.  So there is cute "stitching" around the outside of the card.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Ready for the rain, valentine sentiments
Card : x-press it, grey, blushing bride, slate
Ink : memento black, antique linen distress ink
Other : stitched and pierced rectangles die (BD), copics

Up Up and Away

There is a new release of Doodle Dragon stamps at CC Designs this month :)
There are so many cute images to choose from and a big plus is that they are great for boy/guy/mens cards.  Most of them can be used for girls too, but I needed to make a card for my son and I thought this image called Up Up and Away would be perfect :)


I coloured him with copics and cut him and the clouds out and glued to blue paper from the Capture Life (EP) pad. I then went around them with grey copics to give a shadow and make them "pop" more.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Up Up and Away, HB2U Sentiments
Card : x-press it, black, grey, Capture Life (EP)
Ink : memento black
Other : black leather thonging , library clip, pierced tickets dies (ByDIEzyne), copics

Copics used :
W 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
R 20, 24, 27, 29

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Southern Girls - Animal Crackers
Ribbon Girl - Everything Goes with an image

Bloom


Well it's time for another challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and this month the challenge is Buttons and Bows.

As you might have worked out by now, I'm not much of a Buttons and Bows kind of person actually.  (Although I do like to use buttons on cards quite a bit).  So I've only used 1 button and my bow is made using some twine, there's nothing frilly and fussy about this card.  I've stayed with clean and simple but have still managed the brief (pretty much).  :)




I used a CC Designs Pollycraft stamp called Bloom.  She's very cute isn't she!?  And this sentiment by High Hopes called Dropping a Line is simply perfect to use with her.

The papers are from the Glitz - Love you Madly pad. And I used a pink button.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Bloom - CC Designs, Dropping a Line - High Hopes
Card : x-press it, black, crumb cake, sky,  Love you Madly - Glitz
Ink : memento black, antique linen distress ink
Other : pink button, hemp twine, Stitched zig zag die (La la land), Copics
