Make It A Card Thursday - DT Deni - Wise Ol Owl

Hi Everyone!

A bit of a later in the week post from me this week. Today is a miserable wet day here so I did a few quick errands this morning hoping there wouldn't be many people out. I wasn't out for very long, by the time I was finished it felt like everyone had arrived.. that was good timing :-)

It is Make It A Card Thursday over at Auzz Trinklets N Krafts, unfortunately I have had to cut down on these lately due to time restrictions however I didn't get a post done on Tuesday this week.

Yesterday I created this card using a new stamp of mine - Daddy Owl by Dare 2B Artzy. I have never purchased this brand before and must say I am quite impressed. It is a clear stamp set and stamped perfect first go.. normally you have to stamp them a few times to prime them up, even the sentiments were perfect first time. I used Memento Tuxedo Black with this set.

I have stamped the images on X-Press it Blending Card using the Memento ink, I then cleaned the stamps using my Hero Arts Clear Design Scrubber Pad, these are available to purchase with the Ultra Clear Spray from Auzz Trinklets N Krafts.

I have coloured the owl using Copic Markers and added some extra details using my Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. (a tip I recently heard about was to use the pen on your hand before the paper, this will warm the ink and allow it to flow more freely).

I have used papers from Kaisercraft Timeless Collection, including the clock which I have cut out on the left hand side of the card. I have matted the papers using American Crafts Cardstocks and inked them up using My Ranger Mini Ink Blender Tools and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Mini Ink Pads - Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.

The Card base is from Twiddleybitz. I have also added a chipboard tree looking design from 2Crafty. I have used the Distress Inks on this aswell so it would blend into my background. I have used Kaisercraft Foam Mounting Tape on the owl aswell as the sentiment.

The stamps I have used around the outside of the owl are from Tim Holtz Euro Elements Stamp Set. Everything has been cut using my new Stampin Up Trimmer (with rotary arm), I am loving my new trimmer!! I was a little worried to begin with spending this kind of money on another trimmer after just recently purchasing the Cutterpillar Pro, but I am pretty happy. You may ask why I have purchased another trimmer.. the Cutterpillar Pro is awesome.. however it is too big for my desk. I currently have it on the table in the centre of my room for bigger projects and when I am working over there. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking at a new trimmer.

Oh, one last thing, everything is stuck down using my Scotch ATG, best thing ever for adhesives, I still use my Tombow Mono Multi for smaller pieces like the Chipboard Tree thing.

Copic Markers Used

E53, E55, E57, E59
B93, B95, B97, B99
E11, E13
R12, R14, R17

Make it A Card Tuesday - DT Deni Out Of This World Space Dude

Hi Everyone!

It's Make It A Card Tuesday over at Auzz Trinklets N Krafts, today I have a card using a few images from Digi Stamp Boutique.
The images I have used have been merged together to create a space scene. I have used images from a set called Space Adventure Set.

I have layered the card up using papers from Doodlebug Design - Hip Hip Hooray, I have matted them using American Crafts Cardstock. The Stars are all from My Favorite Things die and were actually left overs from a few others cards I have previously made. The Pierced flags are also from My Favorite Things. The Oval cuts are from Kaisercraft Dies, I have also traced the outer and inner layers using the dies and cut them out to get the closer matting sizes.

I have adhered everything using my Scotch ATG and also some Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive for the stars. Everything is then adhered to a card base from Twiddleybitz.

Most of these products are available through Auzz Trinklets N Krafts, if they are not listed for sale please contact them as they may be able to order them in for you.

I really hope you like my card today and I will be back soon with some more cards to share with you.

Make it a card Tuesday - Dt Deni - Worlds Greatest Father

Good Morning Everyone! DT Deni here.

Today I have a quick card for you, I spent the weekend in bed with TV, Copics and some images I already had printed up ready to go.. Aahh So relaxing after working most weekends lately.

Anyway, onto the card :-)

Today is Make it a card Tuesday at Auzz Trinklets N Krafts. I have created a card today using an image from Digi Stamp Boutique called Sports Car Alf.

I have as I do most of the time coloured the image using Copic Markers, as I was trying to colour up a storm I have not kept track of all the copics used, my apologies.

For the card I have used papers from Bella! Father Mini Theme Papers, American Crafts Cardstock, Canson Cardstock. Twine is from my stash as are the brads. I have used my new Stampin Up! trimmer, its taken me a little getting used to but so far so good. 

I have used a card base from Twiddleybitz, I purchase these in bulk to save me time and money. 

The Sentiment is from CC Designs Amy R Stamps - All About Dad Sentiments. I really love these stamps.. for those of you who don't know Amy is a card maker herself who designs for CC Designs, I love her sentiments because they are always perfect, she knows great things to put on them as she uses them herself. Auzz Trinklets can get most of her stamps in, so feel free to ask her what she has available and what she can order in for you.. Neha is great to work with :-)

Oh, I have stamped the sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink - Black Licorice. This is an awesome ink, you can use it for Copics, watermarkers and most other mediums and it will not bleed. It replaces most of your other inks which is great.

I also have not really mentioned it before and since you don't see them on my cards, I also put a label on every one of my cards before they leave my desk, it has my name and phone number so whenever one of my cards goes out I can be contacted by new customers. I purchase the labels from Vistaprint, they are called Return Address Labels and are perfect for the back of cards. I also package my cards up in a plastic card sleeve, these are also purchased in bulk and I get them from a company called Plaza DJ who do sell on ebay if you are interested. 

Hope you like my card, please leave a comment, and also stop by and like my page on Facebook and hit like both on my personal blog and the Auzz Trinklets Blog.
