Featured Artist - Maigan Lynn, Swinging in the Stars Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Artist Week where the whole DT use images for the same artist which this week is MAIGAN LYNN and I am using the image 'Swinging in the Stars'  available from the Sweet Pea Store.  This image is available in both rubber and as a digi.

For this creation I have made a box to hold 'Post It' notes, a small pad of paper and a pencil.

To begin with I printed the image twice, one image to work with and the other in case I mess up (which I did hahahaha).  Hubby bought me some new crayons the other day - Derwent Artist, so I decided to do my colouring sitting in my chair while watching TV instead of in my craft area.  Now that, I have to admit, I really enjoyed.  However, the following morning I was not very happy with my colouring, the image looked very flat.  The crayons are lovely to use, wax based, but I am finding it very hard to build up the contrast even when working lightly to build up the colour.  To try and rectify this I added some Promarker colour (bad idea as it was impossible to blend) and also painted the background with some turquoise glitter paint over the background I had coloured the night before (another bad idea as I ended up painting over parts of the digi).  Right, how to sort this - colour the second digi and fussy cut to put on top hahahahaha.  Again I used the Derwent Artist crayons and with better light and adding black was able to build up the dark areas a bit better.  Still not happy though.

I should add that before I printed the image I added a poem to the moon, this is not part of the original digi.

 Next to prep the card to make the box and outside cover.
 I painted the box and cover with the same blue glitter paint I used on the digi background and then added some purple lace to the top of the box.
On the front of the box I added a couple of metal decorative bit I picked up in a local shop sale basket.
 Onto the pencil.  Using my lovely free IKEA mini pencils I painted it with gold paint.  I then drilled a hole through the top of the pencil and added a beaded chain made up of beads to match the box and digi. I then threaded the wire through the hole, added another bead and passed the wire back through the hole. To finish off I twisted the wire round the pencil to hold it tight.  This is my newest way of attaching my bead chains to the pencils and certainly the most successful so far.
 Here we have the completed box.
 And this is the top view.  The digi is mounted on gold glitter foam and the die is cut from the same material, really funky stuff.  Think I picked this up in the Range amongst the kids craft stuff and it was so cheap, just goes to show you don't need to buy all the expensive goodies out there to work with <g>.  The die used is Joanna Sheen - Large Filigree Fan


Ingredients:-
  • Image -  'Swinging in the Stars' by Maigan Lynn available from the Sweet Pea Store.
  • Colouring media - Derwant Artist crayons and turquoise glitter paint 
  • Die - Joanna Sheen - Large Filigree Fan
  • Lace, stars, foam sheet etc. from my stash
Thank you for stopping by today and hope you have a happy crafting time ahead of you :) xx

Conie Fong's Buttercup with Suzi

Today I'd like to share with you a pretty card I've created featuring the super sweet 'Buttercup' image by Conie Fong.  Conie Fong draws some of the cutest children, and this image is one of my favourites.


Doesn't she look beautiful surrounded by all those flowers.  If you would like to know how I made this card, then please visit my blog where you'll find more pictures and full details.

That's all from me for today,
Bye for now

Guest Design January 2015 - Kym Upshaw - Project No 2

Here is the second creation I have made as a Guest Designer for Sweet Pea Stamps for January 2015.

I have used the image called "La Chica de Vitral" by Enys Guerrero.  It is available as a digital stamp.
I have decided to make a card that could be suitable for Valentine's Day which will be shortly upon us or for an anniversary etc.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and did the background with a pink and red Pan Pastel.  I have kept the colour scheme to pink, red and a touch of black for some drama.

If you want to see the full details on how I made this card please pop on over to my blog.

Many thanks to Lynette and the Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team for having me.

Rachel Anderson's Birth of Star - by Angelique

Good day everyone, Angelique here again.
For todays project I've made a 5x5 "page"
I want to make a mini album with stamps available from the Sweet Pea Stamps shop
For this first page I have used
Birth of Star by Rachel Anderson, you can find the stamp HERE or the digi HERE


MATERIALS:
Photo album page, design paper, rhinestones, corner die, cut file, colour pencils, glitters


As you can see on the image below, I kept the holes on the left side of the pages, so I can use those to "bind" all the pages when done. It also has a layer of tissue paper on there, to protect the image




Here's a close up of the image


We have a verry nice and friendly group on facebook and we would love to see your make with any of the Sweet Pea Stamps.


I hope you enjoyed my project
See you again next week
Huggsss, Angelique

Here's a stunning Sweet Pea image from artist Ching Chou Kuik called Toadstool Fairy. This gorgeous image is available as a rubber stamp. I just loved the grace and beauty. I made a simple and elegant card with this image coloring it with Copic markers and using matching papers from Bazzill.

Here's a close up of the actual image, isn't she stunning?

Little Sheperd - Tera

 Hallo,
   I made these 2 cards for a Christmas challenge which is a great things for me because again this year I did not have enough made and was late with sending off a few of my Christmas cards.
   I used 'Little Shepard' from Mitzi Sato-Wiuff and colored him with prismacolor pencils.
  I added him to the base cardstock with this beautiful Nativity die that I found - the shepard  in the die reminded me of this image which is available as a rubber stamp.
  All for me today - Take Care
        Tera


Good Morning!

I love to add stamps to my memories (scrapbook layouts)
I used a fab digi stamp from Regan Kubecek called 'Hearts and Whiskers'
Colored it with copics and then laminated it and cut it out with a spellbinders.
The lamination was not necessary as I went in a total different direction which, like you all, THAT HAPPENS ALOT! LOL!
Stamps bring alot of interest to your memories, just think of it like a big card that you can add more stuff and pictures on! And that still isn't enuff room! LOL!
This is my cute little Goliath! Love his crossed eyes!
