Tune in… it’s a Print Candee Blog Hop!

It’s already the 1st of May and that means time for another post from Print Candee.  This month we are having a ‘hop’ with this amazing photo to use for inspiration!  You should have arrived here from Kalyn’s blog and then you are off to visit Jocelyn, I can’t wait to see what inspired the rest of the Creative Team, so hop on over and take a peek!  As for me, my card was inspired by the ‘retro’ theme of the handbags and of course that amazing rainbow of bright colours…

Print Candee Mother’s Day Bloghop & Giveaway!

Whoop whoop!   It’s time for another Print Candee Bloghop and the theme is Mother’s Day and this time we were instructed to make a non-card item.  I don’t know about you, but this totally freaks me out…..   so after much procrastination I decided to make some candles.  I’ve only ever made one before and that was for my godson’s christening, and it was quite fun, so here I go again.  (ps.  This is the correct spelling for ‘Mum’ in Australia.)

You should have arrived here from the lovely Jocelyn’s blog, and then from here it’s off to visit Kalyn.   Make sure that you started from the beginning because you wouldn’t want to miss anything!   There are prizes too….  but first here’s my card  project.

With Love – Print Candee

It’s the first of the month (and April fools Day……  ) and that means that it’s time again for another Print Candee post.  Today Jocelyn has been very specific about what she wants us to do….    it’s Anything Goes!  Well that really does open the flood gates, have you seen the variety and awesomeness that is Print Candee, it’s actually very difficult to choose, Go take a look for yourself HERE, you will love it!

So recently I’ve had the urge to watercolour, I keep having these glorious visions and when I saw this Bird Artwork by Adrienne Looman Designs, she had me at Hello!  Oh, and I’ve had my eye on these Heavy Metal Frames by Lilmade for some time and when I saw Print Candee’s Shiny Metal Alphabet…  it’s as good as the Polished Wood Alphabet I knew it was perfect.  Now originally I had no background plans at all and the card was looking a little less glamorous than I visioned, then after just a little troll through all the paper packs available I found this little gem by Digital Potpourri called Icy Blue, and in ‘real life’ the colour is, what can I say…  superb!

One more thing before I finally do go, please go visit the other DT members, they are honestly such a talented bunch, you can find their links in my sidebar!  Enough rattling on, here is my ‘glorious vision’….    slightly different to my normal style.

Print Candee Tutorial & a Surprise!

From a sheet of printed images to a bright cheerful boys card & giftboxes in no time at all, it’s that easy with Print Candee!!  And I’m going to show you just how simple it is.

First I chose the products that I wanted to use:  Little Cowboys – Red & Blue, the matching Little Cowboys Paper Pack and Polished Wood Alphabet all created by Print Candee as well as some awesome Woodgrain Pattern Papers from Fancy Dog Studio and it was as simple as downloading, opening the file, sizing it how I wanted and then print.  (BTW I always print in High quality)

I wanted a distressed edge on the brown border layer… but first I had to go searching for my ‘distressing tool’, tells you just how much I distress…  although, I did get distressed looking for it!   Here’s a few photos of my project… with the big news at the end…..

Printed & Ready to Go!
The final product!

Holidays with Print Candee!

It’s November and time for another Print Candee Blog creation!  The theme is ‘Holidays’ and kinda appropriate for this time of year.  I am busily working on my Xmas card stash and there are so many wonderful products to choose from at Print Candee.  I have used this amazing Paper Pack created by VN Digital Art and combined it with the Woodland Creatures Clipart by Sparrow Graphics.  What I like about these is the versatility, they make the perfect Xmas card but are not  specifically for Xmas.  I love it if I can ‘multi purpose’ a product!
