Joy - ArtbyMiran October Challenge

For the Art by Miran October FB Challenge I made a block card with the lovely  image.
I cut the card base by using scoring board but I also made a cricut design space file in case you want to use that. You can find the link here - https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/46769088 and also under the main menu tab under the respective tab.

I have used copics to color the image. The JOY is die cut using couture die.
Though in the file I have used Arial black so that everyone can access it. You can of course customise it.

Sasayaki October FB Challege - First Half

This is a card I made with the Sasayaki Freebie image for October first half FB Challenge

The embossing folders are from Anna Griffin Summer and Fall. The die cut is cottage cutz. Since all the bits are so tiny I cut them with cardstock and colored them with copics and assembled and glued them instead of cutting each tiny bit in color multiple times as it is a single die.
The image is also colored using copics.

Scrappers Delight - Pixie Pan

Here is a card I made with Scrapper's delight Friday Freebie - Pixie Pan 1.

I have used memory box dies and cheery lynn dies to die cut shapes and some tinsel and pom poms to embellish further.
 I am going to enter this card in both their FB progressive challenge and the blog challenge

Kit and Clowder Card swap

Kit and clowder group has a card swap going on now and I thought I would participate.
Made a pop up slider card for my swap partner.
I had made this a while back . Here is the blog post for the previous one - http://www.papillondigitaldesign.com/2013/02/a-brand-new-perspective.html.
I think I have the silhouette file for this already under tab.
But this time I used cricut as it can score and cut at same time.
You will find the link here and also under the menu tab at the top under cricut design space file.

Here are some pictures of the card.
The digital stamp used is by artbymiran called Love in a cup and colored with copics

If you do make one of these please pop up the link in comments below. Would love to see it.
Thanks and Happy Crafting

Danger - High ... - September FB Cute as a Button Challenge

Enjoyed making a card for the September FB Cute as a Button challenge. Image for the men. Since one of my dogs and me are the only minority gender in this house I love any digi's which are for men.

And particularly this image since both hubby and me are electrical engineers. Circuit diagrams and the memories associated with them :)

Image colored with copics. Loved playing with sentiment danger high voltage.

If you want to learn coloring using copics or pencils do check out kitandclowder .
Either their techniques classes or monthly classes. One of the monthly classes had as a freebie class coloring metals and also timber. You can also join the FB group  and get lots of inspiration. ALyce Keegan is so helpful and wonderful.

Goddess - Art by Miran September FB Challenge

From the time I saw this explosion card on youtube by Karen Burniston I had to give it a go.
And the ArtbyMiran FB Challenge  goddess image was just perfect for this.

and closed

I have used various dies. The circle behind which the image sits on is the beautiful tattered lace pearl die which after waiting for so long for it to come out again I got at last from hixxysoft.  Awesome place to get dies from if you want those available in UK.
The flourish heart is a retired tattered lace die. I think this is the negative of the die. That too looks beautiful as the positive. The banner is from lalaland crafts. Some flowers and lace and a butterfly complete the card. The butterfly sits on a magnet. I used basic grey magnetic snap closure.
The image is colored with copics. Mainly the YR2's and R2's for dress ; E5's YR2's for hair and for face and skin E13, E11, E00, E000. Bit of blue for flower and eyes - B23 and B00. Sentiment just typed in photosop.
