DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS CAMELLIA CLOVER


This will be my last post as part of the Digi Doodle Studios design team.  I have had some changes in my personal life, leaving me with less time to craft, and I've had to restructure my schedule.  I have loved every moment of being on this team.  It has been an honour to showcase Dina's glorious art and wonderful to be part of such a talented team of designers.  



Today I'm showcasing Camellia Clover, and giving her an Autumn vibe.

I've gone with a brand new card design for me: A Theatre fold card.

This is the card closed:

As you can see, I didn't quite manage to line up my doors properly.

And from above:



I watched several YouTube video tutorials.  You can find my favourite here: Tutorial Video

Now I must be honest, I made many mistakes along the way, mainly because I had to adapt my card for the fact that my image has a portrait orientation, rather than a landscape orientation.  I had to cut virtually every piece twice, before I managed to get it right.

My paper and the little sentiment tag are from the Echo Park I Love Family collection.  I've added a little pre-made bow from my stash, and Green Tara flowers.

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #484: PARTY TIME


Good Morning lovely crafters!


We have a fun theme for you at The Paper Shelter this week.  

PARTY TIME!
This could be a birthday or any other celebration that deserves a party.


This fabulous image is called Go-Go Girl.  I coloured the image with Copics and had a marker disaster while I was colouring (see below), which left me with no choice but to fussy cut the image, and lighten her boots with white pencil, where the darker ink wrecked them.  That left me needing to find a new design for the card I had planned.



I've gone with a fun fold this week.  I had to get creative with my paper, because the disco ball centre was actually cut from the sheet I used for all the panels, leaving spaces I had to patch with other bits.  I loved the paper so much, that I decided not to add much to it.  That will also help me keep the card flat, to fit into a standard envelope (rare for me!)

My paper is from the Ciao Bella The Seventies paper pack.  I've added lots of Artwrap glittery stars, and stamped the sentiment directly onto the design paper, using a KaiserCraft stamp.




This is what the card looks like from above:






Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter this week is our usual fantastic prize!  Our winner will win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (you could choose the pre-coloured image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set), or 3 digis of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Thanks for popping in!

PAPER NEST DOLLS SEA WITCH


 
If villains are your thing, you've got to pop over to the Paper Nest Dolls store to see the new Villain Collection!



This is one of the adorable villains: Sea Witch.  She comes with her two evil eels too.

I have coloured the image with Copics and used a Creative Dies wonky stitches die to cut it out, and the same die for one of the papers.

My papers are from the Studio Light Jenine's Mindful Art Collection paper pack.  My flowers are Green Tara and KaiserCraft.

I've used two dies from a Spellbinders set for the die cuts.

I've added a strip of cheesecloth and two bamboo cord strands, which I've tied off with a little bow.  I've finished off with a few pearls.






You can find more of these cuties in the Paper Nest Dolls Store.

CUTE AS A BUTTON SUCH A TIME AS THIS



Lately I have enjoyed contrasting the colours from my image, with the background card colours, rather than keeping to the colour scheme of one or the other.  I love how the image pops out against the different background.




This gorgeous image is called Such A Time As This.  It comes with a beautiful sentiment, but I decided to use my own for this one.  I have coloured the image with Copics and framed her with a Spellbinders die cut frame.

My papers, flowers, butterfly, strip of lace and sentiment, all come from a brand new 49 and Market paper pack by Katie Pertiet, called Vintage Artistry Colours * Lilac.   I've added an Offray ribbon bow and lots of little pearls to finish off.

DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS NEW RELEASE PERRY



I have a brand new image to share with you today.  This gorgeous little guy is called Perry, and he's one of the New Release images available at Digi Doodle Studios this week.  



I have coloured Perry with Copics and used a Creative Dies wonky stitches oval die to cut him out.  I've then used the same die to cut an offset oval.  Behind that, I've used a Creative Dies wonky stitches circle die twice, to do the same with the paper.

My papers are from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air paper pack.  The tag and heart banner are from the Echo Park I Love Family collection.  

I've added a few Echo Park enamel dots, and Prima Autumn leaves.  I've had these leaves in my stash for quite a while, and I'm thrilled to finally have them on a card.
