Use something Digital over at Di's Digi Designs

Hello

It is time for a new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs and this fortnight the theme is


Use Something Digital

For a change I decided not to make a card, but to try to make a birthday planner.  I've been wanting to make one of these ever since I saw Annette's fab version a few year's ago and have finally got around to attempting to make one.   


The image is Love is in the Air from Di's Digi Stamps.  I inserted the image into word twice and flipped one of the images so I had a mirror image.  I coloured both images with copic pens then fussy cut the mice.  
 

The panel is a piece of cardboard covered with Maja Designs Paper and edged with a touch of Stormy Sky Distress Ink.  The letters and scalloped circles have been cut using an electronic cutter.  Using a computer I printed out all the dates and names and then die cut them out using a small circle die.

Easter Chocolate Egg Box

Hello and a Happy Easter

As its Easter Sunday I though I would share the little boxes of eggs that I made for my husband and son to celebrate Easter.  Each box contained a mini creme egg, a galaxy egg and a lindt egg.



The box was really simple to make and there are many You Tube videos which will take you through the process.  

For my box I used a piece of card measuring 22cm x 18.5cm.  On the long edge I scored at 4cm, 9cm, 13cm and 18cm and on the short edge at 4 cm and 14.5 cm.  I then folded and burnished the score lines.


To create the window I cut a suitable sized/shaped aperture with a die then stuck a piece of acetate over the opening on what would be the inside of the box.     


Cut a notch in each of the six squares (three either side of the long edge - two outside ones and the middle ones).  Add glue to each of the six squares and assemble.


Place the eggs into the box and close.  


I tied the box shut using ribbon and added a peel off greeting. 


Hope you like it.

Happy Mail!

Hello

A birthday card featuring Harry The Stuffie certainly fits the happy mail criteria for me!  


The image is of course from Stamping Bella and has been coloured with Copic pens.  I attempted the sponge dipped in colourless blender technique on his fur to give the illusion of texture.

Butterfly Arch

Hello

It's a colleagues birthday this week and I made this card for her.   For a change I decided to dig out my heat gun and some embossing powder.


The stamp and matching die are called Butterfly Arch by Stamps by Chloe.  The die has been designed to coordinate with the stamp and to cut the butterflies out whilst leaving the centre in the card to allow the wings to be lifted to create a fabulous 3D effect.


The sentiment is from the Butterfly Birthday Verse stamp, but I only used the bottom section.
