Relax and Smell The Flowers – DT Deni

I have had an awesome few weeks lately with creations, I feel like after a few months of craziness I finally have my mojo back. You guys have no idea how good that feels!

Today I have a card to share with you using an image from Time for Tea Designs called Sweet Smell Of Spring, it is from the April 2018 Release – Blooming Lovely.

  

The image was printed onto Mondi Color Copy then printed on Brother Laser Printer. I then ran the image through my Crafter’s Companion Gemini Machine with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Die.

 

I coloured the image using Copic Markers (you will find these listed below).

Patterned papers are from Fancy Pants Designs – Hopscotch 6×6 paper pad, I cut them all up to the layers I needed using my Cutterpillar Pro. I trimmed some into banners using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors. Pink card stock is from Kmart, some that i’ve had for a few years and just working my way through the last of the sheets.

I adhered all the layers I had cut onto the pink card stock using Scotch ATG, I then added a doily from my stash using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive. I adhered the image onto the doily using Tombow Mono Multi liquid adhesive. This is when I realised I forgot to add the tag I had prepared for the card, so I carefully cut the tag down so I was still able to slide the tag in under the circle image. I then added the twine to the tag.

I added the Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops to the image circle. I wanted to stamp the sentiment on the front of the image – I used My Favorite Things All About You sentiments and Memento Tuxedo Black and a Lawn Fawn Acrylic Block.

It was at this moment once I stamped the sentiment I didn’t push enough on the whole sentiment and the bottom didn’t stamp out, so i tried to line it up and re-stamp it.. big mistake.. because I had so many layers that were all over the place underneath I wasn’t able to stamp it evenly.. I carefully went over the bottom half of the sentiment but you could still see the double stamping on the top half 😦 I was so upset because I very rarely stamp over an image because I am prone to messing things up..

Balloon Birthday – DT Deni

Hi Everyone, DT Deni with you today.

I am sharing a gorgeous card using “Balloons” from the Blooming Lovely Collection, she is available individually or as a bundle.

    

I had so much fun colouring up this young lady, so many colours went into her and she turned out exactly how I had envisioned.

I printed her onto Mondi Color Copy 250 GSM, this is my go to for Copic Markers, X-Press it would be my favourite with availability here in Australia but unfortunately with the amount of colouring I do it just isn’t affordable for me.

I coloured her up using Copic Markers, once that was done I went looking for papers and something to make her stand out. These days most of the time I colour once I have found papers to match but today I was having a colouring day and just coloured up a few images to get myself into the crafting mood.

I also had this leftover die cut word on my desk which fit my card perfectly. The die cut was from a My Favorite Things Die-Namics set called Sending Hugs, the sentiment was also from  My Favorite things, it was a stamp set called More Essential Sentiments. That was actually a set I had sitting on my desk from one of my last deliveries that I had not yet used.

I ran the die set through my Sizzix Big Shot (in a previous sitting) using Canson Cardstock. The sentiment I popped onto a Lawn Fawn Acrylic Block and inked up using Memento Tuxedo Black, I stamped it onto some leftover Mondi Color Copy 250GSM Cardstock that I had sitting on my desk.

I decided I wanted to cut the image out using a Spellbinders Die, I already had the Kraft piece on my desk so I grabbed the matching die – Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and using a pacer pencil carefully traced the inside of the die. I then used my EK Success Cutterbee Scissors to cut it out, then erased the pencil markings. That then left the Kraft piece showing a border. I carefully cut around the shoe and the top flower so they were outside of the die shape and I didn’t trim them off.

I then layered out the “Sending” die cut and the sentiment and adhered them where I wanted on the image before I went any further.

I had a Hopscoch 6×6 Paper Pad sitting out from another project. I cut the flowered looking layer using a My Favorite Things die – Stitched Rounded Rectangles, which I ran through my Crafter’s Companion Gemini. (Yes you will be happy to know he finally made it out of the box he has been sitting in for months.. oops my bad)

I found the orange strip sitting inside the Hopscotch Paper Pad that I used and it was the perfect leftover piece to fit my card.

All the layers were trimmed etc using Tonic Studios/Tim Holtz Guillotine and adhered using Scotch 3M ATG or Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive.

I layered everything onto a Twiddleybitz Cardbase. Final touches I added some Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops in Antique Rose.

All Loved Up – DT Deni

Hi Everyone!

This is one of my all time favourite images from Time For Tea Designs, so i’m so excited to be sharing it on my card today. I have used “Wedding Couple” which is available in the Time For Tea Shop. You can stop by the Time For Tea Blog here and if you would like to join in on the current challenge you can click here May 2018.

Current Challenge Theme is…. Time For Tea May 2018 Challenge

                                                    

I printed the image on my Brother laser printer using Mondi Color Copy.

I coloured the image up using Copic Markers, I don’t have a list for you today as this is one that I had coloured up a while ago.. sometimes I like to just sit and colour so I will colour up multiple images and pop them into a tray on my desk to use at another time when i’m not in the mood for colouring (this doesn’t happen very often obviously as this has been sitting on my desk for a while haha).

The Sentiment is from a Whimsy Stamps set called Elegant Labels which you can purchase here.

I cut the image using a die from a My Favorite Things Stitched Squares die, I ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot.

I used my Cutterpillar Pro to cut all the layers from Crate Paper Love Notes 6×6 Paper Pad. I then adhered the image to the first layer, I then popped those onto foam tape and adhered the rest of the layers using Scotch ATG. I then cut a layer of dusty pink cardstock from Canson to mat everything onto.

I then used my Ek Success Cutterbee scissors to trim a few leftover pieces to create little banners for the top of my card. I decided the card still needed something else so I added a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

Once I had all these layers to my liking I added them to a Pre-made Twiddleybitz Cardbase using Scotch ATG. I also added some more foam tape just to the right side of the sentiment where it was sitting up off the card.

As always I also decorated the inside of the card. I don’t bother showing and taking photos of the inside as i’m sure you guys are not interested in that.

I hope you have enjoyed my post today, if you have any questions feel free to send me a message or contact me via facebook (all links can be found below).
