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!

Bella Baker’s Birthday Cake!

Here I go with the Print Candee digital stamps again! They are so addictive…  I have  a friend’s birthday soon and this Bella is perfect for her!  There it is, my favourite blue green, but you can’t blame me, I was inspired by the current challenge inspiration from Jay Gee’s Nook.  It was the colours, and the cakes, and the little rose buds…. loved it all!  I also thought this would be a perfect entry for the LilyPad Cards Simon Says Bling challenge…  too easy!

A Gift For You – Print Candee!

Hi everyone, well I finally immersed myself in a full day of card making and I’ve had a mountain of fun.  Everytime I visit Print Candee I find something else amazing….  it makes my decisions very difficult.   Anyway after much clicking and ooohing and aaahhhing  I decided to use these wonderful images from Pink Pueblo and Print Candee!  They are super easy to use and print like a dream!    The theme for the Creative Team this month is to create ‘a gift for you’.   I wanted to make a gift card set and was inspired by THIS wonderful creation by the very talented Marion.  I followed THIS very easy tutorial by Debby, she is a master of CAS and is such an inspiration.  Are you ready for…   the photo extravaganza?

These Lawn Fawn stamps are just too cute, I just love those wonderful  puns!  I am also a sucker for a one layer challenge and couldn’t miss out on this weeks Lawnscaping Challenge, so out came the masking paper and Copics!  I’d better go now and see what everyone else has been making, so little time, so many blogs to visit!

I decided to combine these two challenges in the one post as the cards I made are very similar.   I was playing with the May ‘freebie’, yes you heard me right, it was a free digi image from Paper Smooches & just how cool is it!  My first card I made for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge which is to Bring on the Bling!  What girl can resist a bit of bling…

Sweet Sundaes!

Can I tell you something funny?  The other day I was sitting at my desk making cards (yes, I know that’s hard to believe!)  and my husband was sitting talking to me and says with a most serious face “haven’t you got enough stuff?…”  It was hard for me not to start rolling around on the floor laughing, but my response to him was, “haven’t you got enough kayaks?…”  and then the world continued on.

Now onto the cards,  (please scroll down for the PDCC)  I thought I would combine this post as the cards are similar, and I couldn’t help myself but make more than one!  I haven’t played with this Pink Petticoat image for a while, but the sundaes came to mind when I saw the current challenge at Jay Gee’s Blog.   I am combining this with the CASE Study Challenge  (CSC38) this week, where the new Muse is Sarah Martina Parker.   I also wanted to get out my pencils after seeing this tutorial over at Shari’s blog, and I thought that these would look a little more vintage than Copics.

Enjoy Sundae

This is a card I made for a work colleague who has had major surgery, just to let him know that we are all thinking about him & hopefully put a little smile on his face.  This is a pre-coloured downloaded image (from a card program) that I just topped up with one of my favourtie things… Copics.  I loved the recent  Clean & Simple sketch sooo much that I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use it again!
