It's Release Day at CC Designs!


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends.....

Hope you said White Rabbits this morning for the 1st of the month... yes?  Or is it just me that's so superstitious I have to do that, salute magpies, uncross knives, not pass the salt, etc, etc...?

OK, you may be forgiven for thinking you've come to the wrong blog in the near future.... because I've been working on some very autumnal (fall) images from the wonderful new release at CC Designs!  So no pink, no glitter...... and believe it or not, I've LOVED colouring them!!  Do you think I'm ill???  Needing my temperature taken?  LOL!!

The first one I'm showing is the fabulous Scarecrow Henry from the Roberto's Rascals range...  and what can I say more than I so enjoyed playing with this little guy...  all the fussy cutting was worth while!

Paper - Basic Grey Kissing Booth

Fly away.... at In The Pink

 

Hi Lovely Blogging Peeps...

It's In The Pink time again...  (yes it DOES come round fast - or is that just for me?)

Our theme this time is

FLY AWAY - 
WITH THE OPTION OF 'PLUS ONE' OTHER COLOUR

So...... the possibilities are endless!  Anything that flies.......  and then because the Pink Ladies struggled to keep to our own guidelines of  'mostly pink' - (green seemed to be creeping in) - we've added the option of also using a colour besides PINK!!  Eeeeek!!!  I did use a tiny bit of green.....  well, I had to join in didn't I?  hehe!


Materials:
Image - Standing on a Flower from A Day for Daisies
Embossing Powder - Stampendous Frantage Aged Rose with Silver Halo mixed 
DP from Papermania - Lucy Cromwell collection
Glitter on flowers

Coloured with Copics
Skin - E000/00/21, R20
Pinks - RV91, R81/83/85/89
Green - YG03
Sharpie Poster Pen for White Dots


Just so you can see that I fussy cut and added a 3D wing - I took this photo from the side so you could see it better.


Hope you'll join in our challenge - see you over at IN THE PINK!  And you could be in with a chance of winning a fabbie £10 voucher to spend at Bunny Zoe's Crafts too...


Big hugs and Happy Crafting...

Funky Frogette...


Hi Peeps....

Today it's my turn to share a DT card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps - and this is for our current Anything Goes Challenge.  I've got to say, I'm truly in love with this little Frogette... she's just too cute isn't she?!



Materials
Papers - The Girls Paperie - Paper Girl
- MFT Cherry Blossom Collection
Die: Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders
Sentiment: Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
Colouring - Copics
Greens - G20, YV03/05/63
Pinks - RV91, R81/83/85/89
Froggie Texture on Green - T1/3, W1/2
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins


For interest, I just thought I'd also show you the difference in a photo dependant on the background colour used...  see how using a deeper coloured pink background behind the card can truly alter the look of the shade of pink on the card? Amazing huh?  And neither are the actual shade I used in real life..  so you'll just have to use your imagination! LOL!



Happy Crafting....

Little Witch Lucy....

 

Hi Lovely Bloggers...

I do hope you're not getting fed up of seeing me popping up in your reading list this week......  I promise, I'll calm down soon.........  but we've had a lot going on at CC Designs with the fabulous new Halloween release...  and they needed shouting about, so shout I did!


And talking of shouting........  the little spiders around this card certainly caused a little squeal or two when I diecut them - before they'd made it to be glued onto the card!  More than once I jumped when I saw one on my craft mat!


Materials
Lil' Inkers Stitched Oval, Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border
Paper - Freebie from mag
Copics 
Skin - E000/00/21/11/04, R20
Hair - N0/1
Hat - C1/3/5/7/9
Pinks - R63/55/66
Shading - N0/1/3

I embossed the sentiment with silver on black card to make it stand out...  and I glittered the web so it looked frosty too.  Then........  well........  some of the spiders just HAD to be pink and blinged......  well, didn't they?  

I know it seems early for Halloween... but you know how fast the time goes doesn't it?  So by the time you order etc.......  well.........

Hope you like what I did...

Have a great weekend... and Happy Crafting...
Hugs
