Bearly Mine Inspiration card

 Good Morning all, my turn to post an inspiration card for BearlyMine Challenge and Inspiration Blog
For a complete change I have used an adorably cute image from a CD....(sadly I cannot remember which one lol) doh,  I just fell in love with these and had to have a play, so the copics stayed out of sight for once LOL...

I have also been a tad naughty and used one of the papers from the Peach Dream set, which I know has been retired, but IS still available from Donna, details are given on the link shown, it just that the colours and design of the paper where just perfect Also used mini dots for the centre panel, Crafters Companion border die, leaf die by Crealies.  Tag die by Die-namics.

Have a fab day, and I hope you have drawn some inspiration from my card, using Donnas fabby papers. x.

Good morning all, long time since I have posted a DT card, I do apologise for that... But I have been so busy with the Making Cards Christmas Special, I have got a tad behind with things elsewhere, plus, silly me, decided to 'throw' self down a flight of stairs, and knocked myself out.. opps... so was out of action for a couple plus weeks also, but now managed to catch up with myself all round.  

Here is my card for the new challenge at Bearly Mine Challenges and Inspiration, which starts today, and the theme for this month is Anything Goes   I have chosen to use an image from Saturated Canary, called Washi Type Kinda Girl, 

The gorge papers are by Bearly Mine Designs, Flower Delight, Simply Stripes and Mini Dots,  The Ivy dies are by Joanna Sheen.  Image coloured with copics.  pearls from stash.  :) 

Hope to see lots of beautiful entries.  Have a fun time playing along, some gorge prizes as ever.

Out of the Box tutorial

Good morning all, its my turn to host the Tutorial Tuesday or Tuesday Tutorial,(in Bella and Brontes Clubhouse.), ... not quite sure which, but I do know it my turn and it Tuesday lol...   I know this has been shown before by various crafters... but hopefully there are still some people that haven't seen this technique done... specially the way I do it rofl..  so here goes, and I do hope it makes sense to everyone, if there is anything that you are not sure about, feel free to leave a question and I will try to answer it for you.
I have used Fairy Sleepy by Mo Manning. 

1.   Decide on which die you would like to use, and place over image as shown, with some of the image outside of your die. 

2.   mark around the outside of your die, (this helps to replace your die in the correct place later), and also the inside where you have any overlap, in this case all the wings,  (shown on one, where the pencil is ) for your cut out marks.

3.   Cut from your outside line upto and just a tad  past your inside pencil lines (the die should not be on your image at this time, this is to only show you clearly where I have cut the wings to)...  Once you have cut your image from pencil line to pencil line, place die over image and careful put any pieces you do NOT want to cut off on the outside like so, if you find it is too tight, go back and cut into the image in the places needed, these wont show later, so don't worry too much. 

4. Run through your die cutting machine and this is hopefully lol how it should come out.. (yep ok I have managed a few times to forget to put stuff 'outside of the box' and ended up with tailless mermaids and wingless Fairies.. rofl...  it happens ! ;) 

5. Take away your die... (hopefully wings still intact) :)  and trim away excess paper/card 

6. Rub away and inside pencil marks, and when sticking image to backing card/paper, try to put your adhesive over the little tiny cuts you may have left.... once stuck into place these will not show.

I do hope that t his tutorial helps some of you...

Many thanks for viewing... and please share with us in Bella and Brontes Clubhouse if you have a go, we would love to see your makes./ attempts :)   hugs Jackie

PS if you scroll down to the next post you will see the finished card using this gorge image. x
