Summer Solstice card.

This latest creation is for a friend whos birthday is on the Summer solstice. What an awesome day to have a birthday B.B.Q's and friends drinking springs to mind. I followed the sketch over on Sugar-bowl-blog thats been created by Lilian. I have turned it so the image fitted better.My DH had the idea for the card and I carried it out. Steve is a farmer and has a red tractor and wheres blue overalls so the image is so it looks like him. DH wanted to include the fact that it is on the Solstice and thats where the sun and moon come into it.
Card recipe:
Sugar Nellie Hamish fixing tractor
Sugar Nellie Sun
Papillio Moon
Stampin up Star
Papers K&co Hopscotch.
Images coloured with copic markers.
3d glaze for the tractor and spanner.

Sugar Nellie Duda Daze Blog hop!!!

What can I say, it is finally here. YAY, hopefully you have arrived from Created-by-annelies, if not why not start the blog hop from the start and visit Sugar-nellie-blog.
Welcome to my part of the blog hop and hope you enjoy your visit. The release of the Duda Daze rubber stamps exclusive to Sugar Nellie stamps available from Funky-kits. The artist of these new stamps is the very talented Diane Daze she has a unique style that is whimsical and brilliant.
The stamp that I received is called BELIEVE, it is the cutest stamp and was ideal for me. It has been a joy to work with. It is very versatile and you get 2 stamps for the price of 1. The cat can be used with the main stamp or used separately in its own right.
So to start I have made a square card, a favourite I think for all card makers. I masked of the image and stamped a script background with versamark and used chalk to highlight the script. All my images are coloured with copic pens.
I love stamps and just how much you can do with them. I have used the fairy to decorate a gift bag that I made. I used a rollagraph to decorate some Bazzill card and then cut out the fairy and placed a label behind her. I have used a fiskar punch to decorate the edge.
Another card but this time it is the an A6 card that opens by undoing the bow. I love this style as it is easy but very striking. I masked the spots out on her top and her leggings. I placed the heart from the cat on her t-shirt.
The cat is on its own for this project.
It is a card box. I got the idea from Maya. She has been making these boxes for awhile and I thought this would be great time to try one out.
The draw opens so that you can fit a gift or a stash of sweets in it. The image is 3d glazed and then I have flicked mica powders over it to add some detail.

For my final creation I have made a note book. Well I cheated a little, as Tesco had the note book for £1. I removed the covers and made my own from cardboard. Ideal for anyone that is studying for their future. I came up with the script to go with the stamp. The little silver charm pebble says believe on it.I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have made for the blog hop and have found some inspiration. For your next sugar fix please visit

I'd like to say a huge thanks to Karen for the opportunity to take part in this blog hop and to all the guys working away at Sugar Nellie.
