The Moment by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi, crafty friends!  Today, I am showcasing my 2nd DT inspirational card which I made for Ching-Chou Kuik's monthly Facebook challenge.  Our theme this month is "Celebrations". 

This theme lends itself to many different interpretations.  I chose this delightful image ("The Moment") because I love to read, and teacups and fairies have always held a fascination for me.  This image can be found in Ching-Chou's etsy shop here:


I wanted to include a book charm on this card.  It was snowing on the day that I was making it.  I was too lazy to drive in the snow, so I made my own tiny book charm.  And, it has pages that can be flipped!  How cool is that?  Here is a close-up of my book:


If you look closely, the author's name is "F.C. Markers".  Who is that?  Well, "F.C." is for Faber-Castell pencils and "Markers" is for Copic Markers (my favourite mediums for colouring).  I thought that was rather clever - LOL!  

As usual, I made my flowers and pinwheel bow.  That's all from me.  Have a lovely day!  Lori P xx

Recipe

Leaves:  Cheery Lynn "Flourish Leaf" strip
Flowers:  EK Success "Retro" punch (small and medium)

Pearls, Swarovski cystals, chain and ribbon are from my stash

Holly Fairy

Hi everybody!

The weather here has been so miserable.  It either rains or it's dark and dreary.  Add the loss of Daylight Savings Time to that and it seems to be dark 24/7.  I'm not sure I know what the sun looks like anymore!  On a brighter note, here is my DT card which I made for Ching-Chou Kuik's current Monthly Facebook Challenge.  
This fabulous image is "Holly Fairy" and is found here (along with 3 other beautiful images):


I have coloured her with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  Her wings are glittered.  The green border was made with Heartfelt Creations' "Delicate Border Basics" die.  The poinsettia was made with the "Tattered Poinsettia" die by Tim Holtz. The pretty leaves are from Heartfelt Creations' "Large Sparkling Poinsettia" stamp.  I fussy cut the leaves.  I love to make my own pinwheel bows.  If anyone is interested in learning how to make them, check out this tutorial:

Have a happy day!  Lori P xx

Ballerina Kitty

Hi there, peeps!

Well, another rainy day here. The theme at Aurora Wings Challenge Blog this month is a wonderful one ("Inspired by Music").  https://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/  As we all know, the power of music is remarkable in so many ways.  

I decided to use Aurora Wings'  gorgeous "Ballerina Kitty" because, as a little girl, I always wanted to take ballet lessons.  Unfortunately, it didn't happen but there's not a day that goes by that I don't listen to music.  This delightful image makes me think of Tchaikovsky's beautiful ballet "Swan Lake".   It can be found here:



I made my own piano template.  I love to make piano shaped cards and so I've used this template a number of times.  The black keys are raised with 3-D dots.  It's tedious work but I am pleased with the results. Here is a close-up of the sweet image:


When the card is opened, you can see the piano shape:


She is coloured with Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils.  The corner die cut is made with Crafter's Companion's "Lace Corner" die.  The tiny leaves are made with Cheery Lynn Designs' "Flourish Leaf Strip" die.   My flowers are handmade.  Ribbon and Swarovski crystals are from my stash. I'm am going to enter this card on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog as well.  http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/ 

Have a lovely day!  Lori P xx
