New Challenge #232 at Glitter N Sparkle

Well things are definitely getting busier for me,
but that is all for the good. 
Still holding out for that job to finally appear but 
in the meantime I'm going good and strong on the
training front.

Just for you all out there I thought I would let you know that
Glitter 'N' Sparkle
are having a DT Call if any of you are interested in applying.
~~~ HERE ~~~

The Theme at
Mothers Day/For A Female

Our Sponsor this week is:-
Sami Stamps who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate

My Project this
week is:-
Bubble Bath Fairy Digi Stamp
To begin with I used a Pre-cut Circle White Base Card
As I am making this an Easel Card I cut a Circle 
for the Backing the same size as the Base Card.
I then covered it with Purple/Green Marble Effect Card.
I also cut out another Circle which I cut 
in half to use for the Bottom.

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Sunkissed Pink
Lime Zest
Tea Green
Pastel Blue
Blue Pearl
I then Die-cut the Image out making sure to 
keep the Bubble on the edge

I then cut out a larger circle of Green Glitter Paper
(Glitter Sheets - Poundland)
I added the Image to the Glitter Sheet with some 
1mm Foam Pads.
And I added that to the Backing Circle with
3mm Foam Pads to give the Card some depth.

For my Sentiment I set it up on my 
Computer using various Fonts,
and I then Printed it straight off 
on to the Card half for the Bottom.

I then added a strip of Green Rope Chain Ribbon
across the top of the half circle.
I then attached it to the Bottom of the Card
with 3mm Foam Pads.

I then added Glossy Accents
to some of the Bubbles to make them Shine.

Finally I added some Crystal Glamour Dust
(Deco Art)
to the Fairies Wings and Eyelash.
I also sprinkled a little onto the Bubbles
(while the Glossy accents was still wet)
just to give them a shimmer.

Which I folded in half to make the base Card
I then added a layer of Black Card

Again using Hint of Gold Centura Pearl Card,
I Die-Cut it out using the New York Collection Die

And using Black Card for the Insert

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Sunkissed Pink
Dusky Rose
Meadow Green

Metallic Gold
I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle
Crystal Clear
on the Image's Wedding Dress.

(sorry not sure who's it is)

New Challenge #231 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi there,
Well things have been very hard for the last few weeks,
but hopefully they are starting to settle down again.
Not only major Drama on the home front,
but I have been laid up ill for the last 2 weeks.
Thought I was just a basic Cold,
but UGGG, it got me good,
every inch of me feels like its been battered and bruised.
But now I'm back (ish) 
and happy to be crafting again.
I know can you imagine it,
so ill I haven't crafted for 2 weeks.

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sponsor this week is:-
Ppinky Dolls who are offering
3 Images from their store

My Project this
week is:-
Kawaii Betty Digi Stamp
To begin with I used a Pre-cut White Base Card
I then covered the inside Back with a 
piece of  Dark Cerise Card
I also used the 'Flower' Template to cut out a
piece of Gold Metallic Card
which is attached to the inside Front.

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Pink Carnation
Rose Pink
Sunkissed Pink
Warm Grey 1
Metallic Gold
I also used a White Shake'it Pen
(Graph' It )
to highlight the Dots on the Head Bows.

I then Die-cut the Image out
using a medium Circle Die.

I decided the Front of the Card 
looked plain being just White.
So using Pink Ink
(Versa Colour - 33)
I sponged it all over the Front of the Card.
I also used the Pink Ink to 
edge the Image Circle.

I then added my Sentiment,
using the Clear Stamp,
'Some Bunny Loves You..'
(Daisy and Dandelion)
and Tuxedo Black Ink

Finally I added 1mm Seed Pearls
to the Pearl Rope on the Little Girls Head.
