Calavera Girl Day of the Dead with Maureen

For my project today I have chosen the Calavera Girl Day of the Dead image and coloured her with Promarkers. I am unsure what the DP is as it was part of a prize package. The view finder is a Sarah Hurley cut file from the Silhouette Studio. The rosette is Martha Stewart and the card is finished with some black pearlescent candi.
Thanks for looking!

October Inspiration With Susan

Today I am sharing my October inspiration for SLS Lines Digital Stamps. Here is my inspiration:

For this card I'm using Day of the Dead Calavera 2 which you can find at the SLS Lines Digital Stamps Etsy Shop! I printed this image on kraft paper and colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils. I love the look of Prismacolor Pencils on Kraft! I did a little bit of decoupage.. I popped some of the flowers and the skull on the flower on her head. The two black strips on the front are embossed with brick wall embossing folder and they are also stitched around the edge with red. I stamped the thank you. The cut around the image is a Spellbinders die. The corners on the inside are Die-namics dies from My Favorite Things. The inside square is also a Spellbinders die. I used all cardstock on this card; no patterned paper. This is a diamond fold card, but inside out.

SLSLines inspiration post Geisha Umbrella

It's time for another inspirational post from me, Bettina, today. I have had the pleasure of using the fab Geisha Umbrella and made a little wee make with her. Have a look:

and here's a closeup of my  make with her:

I decided to make a CAS card as I would have her stand out as the beauty she is. I used a flower embossing folder to match her flower dress and made it pop with a red ribbon. 

You can find here and some more beauties in Sal's store over here.
We also have a Pink challenge going on over here, it has just started. Come on and join in :)

Hi there!  You will see my "inspiration post" on the 15th of each month on the SLSLINES BLOG.  my name is Samara Navi, and I am quite new as a Designer on the SLSLINES DT.  It is quite wonderful, posting 3 times a month because I get to use Sls's sketches.  She has the neatest Portfolio (listed link below), which of course just melted my artistic {heart}.  You have to take a looksie!

In the meantime, my "inspiration post" for SLSLines is HERE.  But you can stay right here if you like or jog over to HERE to see the other Designers Daily Inspiration Posts that have come in the days before this one.  It is a pretty neat concept - one I've not been part of before - Daily Inspiration Posts.  I hope you have the time to check it out; you will see more of Sls's work.  Also, be sure to check out her Mixed Media work HERE.  If you want to access Sls Digital Images, you can do so HERE.  Here are some other ways to get to Sls work:

Please visit Sal here:

Have a happy day and I hope you enjoy my Geisha. Oh my gosh...what a life!  I've never seen such beautiful daily costumes.  Check out Google Images!


the digital image is put on kits i got from dollarama.
the image is first bordered with gold mirror paper (can you believe this huge kit is from dollarama for $1.00?
then bordered with a blood red kit
then it is bordered in the same type of kit with burgendy that is rippled (corrugated is the correct word)
then back on the gold mirror paper

i am a total cheapie when it comes to fleurs (yet i want to covet every card i see loaded with gorgeous prima flowers) so this fleur is from a kit from michael's where there were about 10 flowers in the wedding section (i never shop in the scrap section other than for paper) and i believe they were 4.99 with a 40% coupon on top of that.
i am soooooo cheap i will buy one item, walk out and walk back in and buy my other item with another coupon received from doing the same thing then use my phone coupon for a 3rd item.
and THAT is cheap
or called creative affordability!

the inside of the card one can write on (or put the company logo lol) 
plus a very flat fleur
and more of the gold mirror paper from the dollarama

these are the pens i used.  
the ones on the right are a gold glitter and a white pen
 and the one on the left bottom is a black  le pen 
and the pink sparkle is a spica pen

October Inspiration with Suzi

Hello All, Today it is my turn to share a little inspiration piece using one of the gorgeous images available in the store

My project today features one of Sal's gorgeous Day of the Dead Calavera Girls Digital Stamps.

Here's a close up of the beautiful image;
I coloured the image using Letraset Tria and Promarkers, which are my favourite colouring medium at the moment.  I love using Neutral Greys for colouring Black hair, although on this image I did add quite a lot of Black to the hair.  If you want to read more detail about my project them please, visit my blog.

That's all from me for today, Make sure you come back soon to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Design Team.

Bye for now

Pretty girl with roses - Crafting Vicky

Hello!  For my 2nd post as inspiration I went all soft on you... but I did had a funny sentiment to go with that image :)

So for my make I used the great image Pretty girl with roses that you can find by clicking that link.  And it's a pretty girly make :)

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.

Isn't she pretty?!?  I had so much fun coloring her.  If you want the details of this make check out my blog here.

So that's it for me for today!  Hope that you will want to go over at the store and check it out.  There's loads more fabulous images!!!
