My DT card for Lacy Sunshine


Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Lacy Sunshine 


Our theme for you this fortnight is

Back to school

So please hop over to the challenge blog HERE as we would love to see your back to school creations and also check out with my talented team mates have made

I decided to make a card in a box as they are so popular at the moment

The gorgeous image I have used, which has been coloured with Copics, is called Zoe back to school, isn't she cute!
She is available from the Lacy Sunshine Stamp Store here
If you haven't visited Lacy Sunshine Stamps before check them out HERE

To make the box I just took a piece of A4 card Landscape and scored it at 7, 14, 21 cm and 28cm, I then turned it to portrait and scored at 11cm down to the 21 cm score line and from the 28cm score line to the edge of the card to leave the 4th panel unscored, then using red tape stuck the tab to section one

I cut the score lines down to the horizontal line and folded the sections back on themselves, took some spare card to cut the little sections to stick my image and sentiment onto

The papers and school related items are all from a Nitwits collection called Live n Learn, its just perfect to enhance a back to school image and project

The sentiment was a freebie from Articrafts by Rebecca which I have had a long time, I added this to the centre section with acetate so it could stick out from behind Zoe

My DT card for Digi Choosday



Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday

Our theme for you this week is 

Stitching

so hop on over to the challenge blog HERE to enter your stitched creations and to see
what my talented team mates have made to hopefully give you some inspiration 

Here are the details for my card 

I decided to make a pendulum card using the wonderful Baby Boom Bundle from Digiworld at Polkadoodles

I hate sewing so don't own a sewing machine or kit (it goes back to a horrible teacher I had at school who put me off sewing for life) so I cheated a little and actually faux stitched both of the papers in Photoshop Elements

All the items on this card are from the Baby Boom kit, which is amazing and a bargain at only £2.99!
The only thing I needed to add was 3 jump rings and the card to make the tent card and Spellbinders scalloped circles and classic circles dies to make the aperture and the pendulum part of the card

I also added a bow using Sue Wilsons Dotty Itty Bitty Bow die adding a pearl in the centre to finish the card off

Welcome to the Lacy Sunshine Rory Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Lacy Sunshine Rory blog hop


 Today we are celebrating the launch of some of Heather Valentin's new RORY digi images

As you hop along the blogs please comment on each participants blog and keep your eyes peeled to look out for letters that are hidden on the Sunshine Girls Blogs, collect all the letters as you go and at the end unscramble them to decipher the hidden word
Send an email to Aud ( danmoose@aol.com)  with the word to be eligible to win the fabby prizes that Heather is offering

The hop is starting on the Lacy Sunshine facebook page
so if you have arrived at my blog and wish to take part in the hop please start back at the main page

The digi i have used for this Rory party hop is called Rory Chimney Sweeper and can be found in the store HERE

I have coloured this adorable image with the following Copics Pens
E00, E37, E53, E55, B01, BG07, BG32,  C1, C5, R20, YG41 and YG45

Here is my Rory Project, I have added 3 photos as the card can be displayed in 3 different ways

 
 

 I made one of these cards years ago (displaying it like the top photo)  but after visiting Norma's blog recently where she had made her own version and shown hers displayed like in the bottom two photos I decided to make another one. 

I have adapted my measurements using A3 card (I can make two out of 1 sheet) as I wanted my card to be larger than 4 x 4 inches so I could showcase Heather's gorgeous image better

I have also used the following ingredients 

Papers from Clare Curds 12 x 12 paper pad 
Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle nesties
Sue Wilsons foliage dies
Sue Wilsons Daisies and open daisies dies 
 Our Daily Bread borders dies
Cheery Lynn Butterfly Die
Craftwork Cards card candi

 I hope you like what I have created and now want to see what my team mates have made with their Rory images so please pop on over to LENE to check out her Rory project

Here is the line up just in case you get a lost along the way and remember we are from all different time zones so remember to hop back in case a post is not showing

Julie (ME)

Remember we are having a scavenger hunt as part of this hop so you need to collect my letter along with the others hidden along the way so you can decipher the hidden word

My letter for you is
