Digi Makeover Ch #51 - Inspirational photo

Hello, there!

This week our challenge at Digi Makeover blog is an Inspirational Photo: Nautical bedroom.
And today we have a guest designer: Anda (Flying Fresian), so welcome and visit her blog.

You'll see I made two cards this week, the first one has a nautical image and the same colors as our picture... I used the set "Sailing by" .

And the second one, has the colors from this photo and of course the male factor too.... For this one, "Color kid - Beyond measure".

Why? You ask me... Well, I wasn´t to happy with the first one and try to do it better, and finally I am posting both of them, hehehe... Both of them are colored with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils.

For the first card I used kraft paper as background, then I used blue, sky-blue and red cardstock. I cut the image and its mat with Sizzix circle dies. As embellishments, I used two other images from the same set, add some blue glitter to the anchor (I used foami tape for it), and the special cord is some recycled cord from a blind that broke and I saved it because I thought could be great as embellishment (...what do you think of it?)....

For the second card, I used blue, sky-blue and red cardstock, some blue gingham dp from Folia. As embellishment I used a red ribbon with white edgie stitches and blue cold porcelaine stars in two different sizes.

Digi Makeover DT first card

As I told you yesterday, I was invited to join the DT at The Paper Makeup Stamps blog and I feel so happy (and proud of myself)!!! 

OK, for my first challenge, we have to make a Tent Topper card, 
(and you can find a tutorial here.
And this was a challenge for me as well as this is my first tent topper card :)

This is the card I made:

The cute image is "Lucy mouse", I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils, and cut the circle with a Sizzix die cut. Then I placed it on a pink mat cut with a Nestabilities die cut called "Blossom". 

To give some sparkle I glue a lot of pink bling around the circle and think it looks cute!

I used green cardstock (Paper Temptress) and green-pink dp (Folia). 

I also used a pink-green ribbon and made a bow.

As I didn´t decide yet what is the purpose I didn´t put any sentiment, 
but there is room for it later :)
Now is your turn to do your Tent Topper card.

- You must use a digital image on your entry
(hey, it is a digi challenge after all)
- The winner will get to choose any 3 digi images from PMS as their prize. If the winner used a PMS image on their entry, they'll get 2 bonus images (for a total of 5!)

First day of school card and some great news...

Just on Friday I learned that my daughter will start classes this coming Monday... yes! TOMORROW!!! I thought we still have one more week... anyways, Vicky will start first grade tomorrow and I feel so proud of her... so, I made this simple card to wish her the best for her school days :)

I used a CC designs stamp, called Honey Teacher, I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and cut it out, using some foami tape I placed it on a green mat cut with an elipse die cut (Sizzix) (Can you see the dimension?). I won this stamp maybe two years ago in a challenge but never used it before than today (!)

To tell you the truth, I make this card in a rush, when my daughter was playing some in my computer, but for that reason my card is very simple, I didn´t use any sketch and made a very simple card. I used a blue-greenish cardstock that has a micro embossing. Then I used for first time this ribbon, I think I won this ribbon in the first candy I won ever, more than two years ago (thank you, Jerosha!), as it´s a sticky ribbon and can´t do any bow I never used it before.

Then I was looking for a "school" embellishment, I was thinking in an apple button, or an apple brad or something with an apple, but as I didn´t find anything in my stash I used a red button and made a bow with a red mouline thread. As sentiment I used some stickers from a block with many alfabets and some school sentiments I've got a couple of month ago.

Although my card doesn´t have any pink color, hope my daughter will like it!!!


Simply create too: back to school
Cards und more: anything goes
Use it Tuesday: all about school
DYSU: buttons

The paper shelter: clean and simple

OK., the great news: about a month ago I won a challenge at The Paper Makeup Stamps blog and after it I was invited to join the DT of this challenge blog and I said YES!!!!!!!!!! So tomorrow I will be showing my first card as a DT of this great challenge. Hope you come back to see my creation.
