Premiere at Red Carpet Studios!


Hi all,

Welcome to the Premiere Party of a new challenge blog! Red Carpet Studios is starting Sept. 2nd and this is the premiere weekend! You definately DO want to hop over to their blog, just to see all the great give-aways! Absolutely great!
Anyway, Red Carpet Studios, like the name says, is all about movies and stuff, and I created a DVD especially for this premiere party.

I used a DVD case from a recordable DVD which I didn't use anymore, took the paper out and created my own! The stamps I used are all Magnolia, aren't they just great? Here are a few close-ups

They are all colored with my Copic Markers. I am not going to lost them all, just because they are too much! I guess I used about 50 different markers, and my post would be way too long! ;)
The text banners are made on my computer and printed out.
The stars are cut out from yellow cardstick with my Slice. On the red cardstock I used my Martha Stewart border punch.
Here are some more pictures.

 As you can see I did the whole outside, and of course while I was working I couldn't just leave the inside as it is, so I did the inside as well!

As a little book on the inside I used all the pictures of the DT-girls on both teams, and pimped the DVD too!

I hope you all like it, I hope to see you over at Red Carpet Studios to join all our future challenges!

This project is entering the following challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything goes
All That Scraps - Anything goes

Hugs, Sandra

This is my creation for this week
Don't you just love this ugly thing? You can find him here! He is all for free, that's what Digi Haven is all about!

For the sky I cut some clouds and glued them down and then spunged the background with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. Then I removed the clouds and there you go, your homemade background!
The sentiment I used is by Nicole Verkooijen, it's one of my go to sentiment sets!

Chasing butterflies

Hi girls!

There was a challenge over at Tiets' Club where we had to use a specific digi from Saturated Canary. Lucky me, I just adore those! I have many of them, but I don't have as much time as I would to color them!
Anyway, this is my creation.
This digi is called Chasing Butterflies, isn't she lovely? You can find all of Krista Smith's digi's here!
Here's a close-up of my colored version

She is colored with my Copics again, and I used the following colors
Skin: E0000, E00, E11 and R20 for blush
Hair: E43, E47 and E49
Clothes: BG10, BG11 and BG15
RV02, RV04 and RV06
W1 and W3
Background: BG01
Grass: YG23, YG63, YG67 and G21
I used some papers by Prima Marketing, some paper roses from my stash, tied ribbon from my staast and a butterfly punch.
That's it for today, I hope you all like it!

Telescoping image

Hi all,

I made another card for my aunts birthday the other day, and thought, why not show it here?
So this is what I did!
It is a 10cm square card, and for the image I used a tutorial by Splitcoast stampers, called Telescoping Image. You should try it out, it's fun!
I used a flowerstamp, colored it with my Copic Markers and followed the tutorial.
I used the following Copics
RV02, RV04 and RV06
V12 and V15
Y02, Y06 and Y08
R37 and R59
YG63 and YG67
All layers are cut out with Nestabilities. I used DP by Basic Grey, Kissing Booth, tied a little bow with ribbon from my stash and punched out some butterflies.
That's it for today, I hope you like it!

See you next time!

Hugs, Sandra

Days gone by...


Hi all!

First, this post was supposed to go live yesterday, sorry I am late. Blogger just wouldn't upload my pictures, and hey, if I made a card there has to be a picture in it, right? :)

It is time for another challenge at Digi Haven! This weeks challenge is Days gone by, and this is what I created!
Digi Haven is a challenge blog, that's all about FREEBIES, and I got mine here! Isn't it cute? Well, actually it's not cute at all, the little elephant just won't have his meds! And the mom is looking really mean! When I am not crafting, I work in a pharmacy, so when I saw this digi, I knew I had to make a card with it! All those poor mama's and papa's desperately trying to give medication to their child, who just don't want it!
Anywho, enough blabbing, here is a close up of my colored image.
I used both Copic markers and regular pencil crayons.
I used the following Copic Markers
Elephant: C1, C3, C5 and C7 and a tiny bit of 100, black
Mother elephants skirt, hat and baby's shirt: YG91 and YG95
Apron: pencils.
I used some organza-ribbon from my stash and tied it in a bow. I also sew some buttons on my card.
Paper is from my stash, don't know which brand, it is sitting on my desk for ages now, so I had to use it.
Well, that's it for now, hop over to Digi Haven, click at the tab Freebies, search, create and join us!!

Hugs, Sandra

I finally found a solution to still upload pictures, but it has taken me way too long!!!
So there will be 2 blogposts up, so make sure to scroll to the other post!

(This post was supposed to go live on the 23rd of August!)
It is time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments! This fortnights challenge is: Use a number in the sentiment. This is what I created!
This times sponsor is Digi Darla, go take a look at their shop, it's fabulous! I used a digi called Happy Couple set 2, you can find them here

The happy couple is colored with my Copic markers and I used the following markers:
Skin: E0000, E00, E11 and R20 for blush
Hair: E35, E37 and E29
Female clothing: BG05 and BG07, and W1 and W3
Male clothing: E04 and E08, and W5 and W7
I used a sentimemt I found my computer, and I have no idea where I got it from, so if anyone know, let me know please!
I only used one sheet of dessinpaper, by Echo Park.
The blue squares are from white cardstock, cut in squares with my Slice, embossed with a music folder and colored with Distress ink Tumbled Glass.
The hearts are made out of blue cardstock and also cut with my Slice.
I also used some paper roses on my card and punched out some leaves with the Martha Stewart punch. Also used some rhinestones from my stash.

I hope you all like it, and I'll see you soon!!

Hugs, Sandra

I don't do mornings...

Hi all!!

Here I am again, with a new challenge at Digi Haven! This weeks challenge is Yummy in your tummy, and this is what I created!
I used a digi by Lost in Paper Scraps, you can find this digi here.
Perfect for a coffee addict, but I have to make a confession, I don't even like coffee! Never drink it, I'd rather have tea!!
Anyway, I colored the digi with my Copics again, these are the colors I've used.
Coffee: E35, E37 and E29,
Coffeebeans: E47 and E49
Coffee mill: C3, C5 and C7
Package: E31, E33 and E43, R35, R37 and R59, BG05 and BG07
I cut the image out with my Nestabilities Label 1
The sentiment I used, I made myself on the computer! I used some Stickles on the edge of the sentiment and the red DP. The DP I used is from my stash, have no idea which brand it is.

That's it for today, hope you all like it!
So for now, hop over to the Digi Haven Blog, see what the other DT-girls created and join us!

It's a girl!

Hi all!

It is tome for another challenge at Aud Sentiments! This fortnight challenge was already running last week, so you still have one week to join us! This time's challenge is Welcome Baby.
This challenge is sponsored by Stamp Fairy. They are offering a $10 gift certificate for their shop!
This is my creation
I have to apologize, my light wasn't very good when I took this picture, I am sorry.
The image I used is by Stamp Fairy, perfect for baby cards!
I colored him (or her??) with my Copic Markers and used the following colors
E31, E33 and E35 for the bear
R20 and R22 for nose, ears and feet
RV10 and 0 for the wings
Y11, Y15 and Y17 for the moon

This time I wanted to do something different, and I loved the circular shape of the moon. That's why I made a circle card.
The sentiment I used is from my stash, given to me by one of my crafty friends, so I have no idea which brand it is. Please let me know if you do know, then I'll add it to my post!
DP I used is also from my stash, by Forever Friends. It fits perfectly here!!

So that's it for today, go to Aud Sentiments and join us!!

Hugs, Sandra

A, Bee, C

Hi girls!

It's friday again, that means another challenge over at Digi Haven! This weeks challenge is Back to School!
I used one of the many digi's by Elisabeth Dulemba, I totally love them! You can find this one here.
Isn't he adorable?  Here's a closer look at him.

He is colored with my Copics, used the following colors
Y15, Y17, Y71 and Y77 for the bee.
YG11, YG03 and YG06 and R59 for the book.
I am not sure if you can see, but I can assure you, I used a lot of white glitter on his wings

I didn't use a sentiment in this one, since there is so much going on on this card. I used the Oxford DP by Basic Grey, full of school stuff, pencils, books etc., perfectly for this card. The Oxford collection also contains brads, a lot of them!! LOL, I used several different ones, glazed brads and jumbo and mini brads. I like buying a whole collection from basic grey, since everything matches with colors and so.
I also used a Martha Stewart punch and some ribbon from my stash.

SO for now, hop over to the Digi Haven Blog, see the fab creations from the other DTgirls and join us with a freebie digi stamp!!

Hugs, Sandra
