DSC # 125

It's time for a new challenge at

 Digitally Sweet Challenges

the Theme is 

Anything Goes

sponsored by  Bugaboo Digi Stamps

PS Layout
Printed and layered with 3D gloss added to glass and buttons

The image I chose is Glass of Wine, which, includes the brilliant sentiment, it's great isn't it? 
I coloured the image in PS and added a PS glass filter to the glass, I love this effect and have used it for windows and of course a glass and a bottle.
The card is for one of my niece's whose birthday is in a couple of weeks time, she likes a glass of wine, so this should suit quite well.  LOL. The colour combo was the hardest to choose, so I looked through DP's that I hadn't used and found this kit. Quite a different colour combo ay? for me anyhow.

The following comments were made before I realised that my scheduled post was posted 30th December instead of 30th January, so apologies to Bonnie and Shirley and Loli, however I have copied them here with thanks for their comments. That'll teach me for being so far ahead, but I couldn't wait to use this fab image.

Sympathy card

Hi Everyone, I had to do a sympathy card for a former work colleague who had lost his wife. He was very difficult to make a card for as he is an atheist, doesn't really like to show emotion and he has had a bad few years.

I had a plan in my head that I felt would be suitable, then - you know what plans are like, due to circumstances I had to do it VERY quickly and I was visiting work the next day and was taking it to get his address and post the same time. I thought a Quick Page would help me do it in double quick time, thankfully it did. I felt it suitable, something different, but would show what he felt inside I thought.

I laid it out in Photoshop just adding the sentiment within the frame then printed it out and added it to the card with a couple of blings.  As it happened as I was walking into work, he was walking out and I was able to give him the card, I really was glad I had it on hand.


The Quick page is from Pixel Scrapper November blog hop.

Snowman Winter Wishes

My DT post today is for Deedee's Digis who is sponsoring the challenge at  http://craftyourpassionchallenges.blogspot.com/  Theme - Anything Goes

I used the Snowman and sentiment from the Snowman Soup kit,










 I made a gift mug with hot chocolate sachets and didn't the colours of the sachets go well with the ready coloured image of that fun snowman?
The mug is an SVG cutting file from Lettering Delights. I added ribbons, Stickles and 3D gloss.

Wedding card

Hi Everyone, I have my DT post for Deedee's Digis today and it is for the Lace and Pearls challenge that Deedee is sponsoring at http://allsortschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/

 Here

I have used the wedding cake from the Now and Forever kit by Deedee's Digis. I made the layout in Photoshop, I placed a blue square to start, added a heart overlay by Delicious Scraps, I used lighting effects to make the lighter centre, added the lace layer by Miriam Freebies, I can't find her on the search engine so I don't know if she is still around! - sorry, - if you know better I'd love to know. The sentiment also come from Deedee's kit. The pearls are Papermania, so is the central heart.

the Theme is 

"Anything BUT a card or layout"

sponsored by  Lacy Sunshine


I chose "Snow Bunny Etherial Enchantress" isn't she wonderful?
My "Anything BUT a card"  is a calendar page, I think she is perfect for this, she's showing what the weather can be, beautifully.
I coloured her in PS added shading and shadows and placed her in the calendar template.

Easter Chick

Hi Everyone, here's a cutie chick from the Spring Chicks kit (there is an EU version and rest of the world version, this is due to the new EU VAT rules), just for you today as my DT post for Deedee's, Digis, it's for the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Guest DT Day.

 I usually use the ready coloured images from Deedee's but I decided to colour my own chick this time, in PS as usual. I also added a "PS fur pattern" I know chicks have feathers, but it gave the image texture that I wanted. I have added a few "PS brush" feathers, I also added a real feather, I haven't used a real one in an age. The DP I used is by Cajoline Easter Papers, I had these in 2011. Papermania Twine and I followed this sketch.

Owl Love You

Hi Everyone, here's a little owl with a different shape card. Inspiration for this is from Dizzy Designs.

I used Photoshop shapes to make the template and "clipped" papers to the shape, then printed it all out and layered them on to white card. Quite a different colour combo don't you think, I love it.

I coloured the owl in PS and layered and added it to the centre and then added Stickles to the flowers and 3D gloss to the flower in her hair! also to the beak and eyes.  Then added Papermania 3D Pearl effect. This will be for my lovely patient hubby.

The Dp's are from Pixel Scrappers Blog Hop Feb 2014.

I'm entering this into the Flowers or Hearts challenge on The Stamping Boutique Facebook page.
