Happy Valentine's Day....

February 14th 2016


A post for Valentine's Day - "alternative" of course!!! I've used a new Calavera Girl/Day of the Dea image available in store: click here for direct link. Background papers are also digital files from the SLS Lines Store - so many images, clip art, patterned papers, colouring books, workshops etc. to choose from!!!!


I love the effect of the herringbone pattern so used my scraps of printed paper top do the background. You can find a great tutorial for the pattern at Splitcoast Stampers. I printed the image on kraft coloured paper and coloured with colour pencils - I was very happy with the soft look I achieved. The "love" wording is a Silhouette file and was perfect for this page.

JessicaLynnOriginal NEW Stamp Sets Blog Hop........

February 13th 2016
2 new release sets at the JessicaLynnOriginal Website - "Calendar Planner" & "A Latte Love" and to celebrate we are having a blog hop PLUS there is a great offer in store if you want to purchase both sets!!!


Before I share my "makes" here is the Blog Hop order so you can visit all the DT plus super talented artist and owner "Jessica"!!
 
Sharon (you are here!)

I had to do a couple of altered index cards for an "Aussie" Swap I am in so the its & pieces I had to use were perfect for combining with the coffee cup stamps in the "A Latte Love" set!



Coffee cups coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Coffee drinking ladies and wording are from Lisa's Altered Art and are just perfect for my humour LOL!!


I had enough left over pieces to make an altered tag for my swap partner too so I used the jar from the "A Latte Love" set plus the little coffee/hearts image from the Calendar Planner set. image also coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and added to the tag background.


 
I don't do a "planner" as such so I have used the stamps in this set to combine with some other JLO images and made a couple of ATC's!!
 
Firstly I have combined the "new" Sydney Digi image with several of the little stamps from the calendar set - winter word, flag stamp & little snowflake.
 

And the second ATC uses the limited release "rogue emu" digi stamp with the summer word, time toi swim suit shop & bikini stamps from the calendar set!! Plus I added the word "Aargh!" with an alphabet set I had for a bit of fun!!!!

 
 
Hope you enjoy the hop and the new release stamps!!!!

Seeing Red.......

February 11th 2016


A fun ATC and also SLS Lines Blog Inspiration post and an entry for the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog! So a post to cover all bases LOL!


This cute bird with hat and scarf is available at the SLS Lines Etsy Store along with all the other amazing images including the image I posted on my blog yesterday. I coloured the digi with pastel pencils - always love the effect of these and I made a "herringbone" pattern background which is something I haven't done for awhile but the effect always looks great. Patterned papers are digital by and Etsy store called Yellow Lemons - not sure if the paper pack is still available. Added a bit of fibre for the bird to stand on plus a couple of snowflake sequins and computer generated wording!

Teddy Bear's Picnic.....

A new release image from Sandra Caldwell - "Bear Hugs" released last week and available to purchase!! A perfect image for Valentine's if you make cards for your partner!!!


Image once again coloured with pastel pencils - my favourite colouring medium at the moment! And fussy cut too because of my phobia with white space LOL!!! The love wording and little hearts were cut on my Silhouette and I added some glitter glue for some sparkle! I added some metal corner charms to finish off!

Four Leaf Clover

February 9th 2016


New release day again at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy Store - lots of cute and quirky images available! today I am sharing a card using "Four Leaf Clover" - she is just sooo cute!!


I coloured her with pastel; pencils and fussy cut (as always) and added her to layers of patterned papers. Put a birthday sticker on plus a paper flower and some leaves along with some sticky mesh for texture. I don't usually create a lot in green but she was perfect for this colour combo!
