After making 2 girly cards, i made myself make a mans card. I just really struggle to get inspired when thinking about colours etc
This one has a digi image , again used my promarkers and added some gloss.Sentiment is from a free bpack, and the fish and rod were from ebay
Another stepper card, this time its for one of my little girls friends birthday later this month.
So many parties- i love that she is popular but it gets quite costly when shes already had 3 parties since christmas and had another 2 invites this week.
Love the colours, reminds me of summer which will come back soon.

Its party time

Morning, I am officially addicted to stepper cards, can't stop making them. Have bought  them from the papermania range but do need to make some myself.
Image is a new saturated canary image, cooured in with promarkers ,added some gloss and using up some paers from my stash. Added a free sentiment and a die cut balloon i had bought from ebay

And card number 2
Not too sure about this one, can you tell i was a little bit bored of the boys theme
Same image, stamped some more of the football from the stamp onto some plain coloured card, added some contrasting papers and some card candy too.
Well, I thought it was about time i did a few boys cards, i never do them unless i have to. I always seem to struggle with inspiration and also have so much stash for girls colours but very little for boys.
I bought this LOTV stamp ages ago so got him out to play with as my base. Then found some papers that looked a bit footbally!! Added some buttons for interest as i felt it was too flat and here it is.

Sun is shining here in Derby, makes you smile when its a lovely day, Before i venture out, here is another card made with the freebie stamps i got. I am loving the pale colours, using up some cream and brown card i had in my stash.
Stamped the image using stayzon black inkpad, and coloured in with my promarkers. Then added some 3d gloss to highlight the leaves and bit on the bunny, and attached some ribbon and flowers to add more detail. Hope you like it.
This decoupage bear was a freebie from Docrafts magazine- she's lovely. Added some bits from my stash, card and papers and ribbon. Also added some of my new papermania flowers and a sentiment.
Struggling a bit today, got a poorly shoulder so bit uncomfortable and tired as its keeping me awake.
Decided to make some cupcake themed cards, this is the first, Need to use some bits from my stash , so hubby doesn't start to moan about my spending. I was made redundant in September so trying to find ways to keep busy that dont cost any money!!So better use the stuff i have-there is quite a bit in my craft room !!

Another saturated canary image that i got from Etsy.
Did this version in blue colours for my lovely nieces- had great time colouring in with promarker and tried to do more shading than i normally manage to do. Again, added glitter and gloss, ribbon and some snowflakes from my cuttlebug.

CardmakingbyDippyDi: First card of the new year

First card of the new year

Well, Happy New Year to you all. Hope you had a great 2011 and will have a happy and healthy 2012.

This is my first card of the New Year- a birthday card for  a party my daughter is going to next week. Really enjoyed this one, love making girly cards.

I used an digi image from Saturated canary which I loved colouring in with my promarker. I then added some glitter and gloss . Using a papermania stepper card i added papers from my stash and some new attachments- strips and flowers which are from papermanias new range- they are lovely and worked really well with the colours i was using.

Hope you like it, would love to know what you think,
