Elisabeth Bell's World Blog Hop

Good afternoon and welcome to Elisabeth Bell's Digi Bell's February New Release Blog Hop. Hopefully you arrived here from Linda's blog and have already been wowed by her fabulous creation but if you just happened to be passing you may want to head over to the start HERE.

Yet again we have two fabulous images to share with you and I love them both. They work so well individually and also together.

The first image is called 'Anna' and the second is called 'Puppy Surprise', both are available to buy from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection. Now some of you fan's may have seen these images before as they were once release in rubber format as one stamp and sold at S.C.A.C.D.

OK so for my card today I went with a different style and am not totally sure it works but hey ho it is too late to change it now lol. It is a gate fold style card, I added Anna to the front along with a charm and a little twine to hold the card closed, once the top flap is lifted you see the wording (sorry for the bad placement of twine during photographing) and then once that flap is lowered you see the puppy surprise. 

I took several photo's as it is difficult to see it all. 

This is it closed.

With the top flap lifted.

Both flaps are now open.

Elisabeth Bell Digi Bell's Guest DT Card

Hello and welcome to what I am sad to say will be my last post as part of Elisabeth Bell's Digi Bell's guest design team. I have had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed working along side you lovely ladies.

So I have finished my term off with this card using 'Giddyup Pony' available from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection. It is a great image to colour and even though I paired it with Christmas backing papers I think it works. I added the sheriff border and a bit of twine to finish it off.

Elisabeth Bell's World 'Pretty In Pink' Challenge

Hello and welcome to another post for my part of Elisabeth Bell's guest design team. As this is my last challenge post I would just like to say a very big thank you to all the ladies for having me on the team, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. 

It is time for a new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge and this month the challenge is 'Pretty In Pink'.

For my card I turned to the very first Elisabeth Bell stamp I ever purchased and that was back in the day when they were sold by Sugar Nellie. This image is called 'Daisy' and I love this image, it is so versatile and can be used for so many occasions, today I went with a birthday. I believe it is now available through Elphine House Australia but I could not link directly to it as the shop is down.
Although my card stock looks red it is actually a magenta or hot pink colour. My patterned paper is another from my scrap box but I do know this is from First Edition but not which stack. A die cut border and a few butterflies along with some gems to finish it off.

My Time To Craft 'Lace' Challenge

Good morning all, thank you for joining me. I wish this weather would decide what it wants to do, it is freezing one minute and then lovely and warm the next. 

My apologies this post should have been up this morning but between feeling ill and being busy it just didn't happen because it was still sat in drafts lol. I am so not good with making in advance because I forget to post them!

Anyhow onto the matter in hand, it is time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft and this week we want to see your 'Lace'. Nice and easy for some but quite a challenge for others, give it a go you might just surprise yourself!

For my card today I used this amazing image which I brought about a year ago and have never used, that is so bad especially as it is so so adorable. I used papers from my scrap box and just played around with them. I added two rows of lace across the card before attaching a bow made from the same lace.

My Time To Craft 'Oriental' Challenge

Good morning, I hope you are all well.

It is time for a new challenge over at My Time To Craft and this week we are going all 'Oriental' one of my least favourite subjects to craft to. I had nothing to fit this challenge so off I went to my local craft store which is run by Mark & Jo Channon (Jo is from Create & Craft for those of you that watch it) and at first Jo was as blank as me until we went rummaging around the store. I decided on the Tattered Lace Die called Oriental Birdcage and those coins you see in the photo. 

I cut the die in white card stock and then painted it in Rich Gold Cosmic Shimmer and did the same to my card stock to get the perfect colour match. I found the script on the fan on Google and just cut, folded and inked to get to look the way it does. For my background I cut a bamboo stencil on my Silhouette Cameo and then inked it with Bundled Sage, Old Paper & Frayed Burlap Distress Inks masking off sections until it was all completed and although it took some time to do it this way I like the effect it gave. The sentiment was also found on Google and a little bit of twine to carry my coins and it was done.
All items used linked below photo.
