Ooo La La part 2 …..

…….but a little less Oo and a little more La

Hi everyone

This is just a follow on from one of my previous posts.  These are the 2 others  cards I made using Nicecrane Designs Digi Sheet which you can see below.  I had a bit of fun with these and  hope you like them.

Card No. 1.

I had it in my mind that she was in some sort of room or needed one!   So I have gone for a bohemian tent style changing room.  I made this up as I went along really.

I started by using 2 large arch shapes.  I used S.binders large arch die.  I cut the base off one which is the spotty olive  green top with the red swag on.

I cut a large rectangle out of the centre of each of the arches to make the entrance.  On the outer cut arch I trimmed the sides a little  more to give a curtain/column effect.   Ok,  with me so far?

I cut 2 rectangles of red paper for the sides which I later placed behind the curtains/columns and 1 smaller rectangle for the the bottom front, just below where her feet are.

I used a die to cut out an ornate oval shape.  I sliced off about 1/3  of it which I used for  the step piece at the front and the larger of the two pieces I used at the top, behind the dome with the flower on.

I assembled the card by starting with the girl image and then built up the layers.  As I said I used dies but you really do not need to.   They are really only straight cuts.

Card No 2.

Have you guessed it?  It’s a Halloween card.  Looking at this image I thought green, orange and cats it has to be Spookylicious doesn’t it.

I decoupaged the image a little.  I printed the image out twice and cut away one of the images.  I cut half way down her skirt up to and  around the cat and her arms.

I made her a little black hat just out of scrap card.  Not difficult.

I stamped the little pumpkin and coloured it orange and stamped the sentiment.

Just for a giggle I added some of the flat backed glass beads  (gosh, try saying that without your teeth)  to give the effect of frogs eyes! he he!  I know I am sad and I really need to get a life!  Oh, you can see on this picture where I cut her skirt as well.  Yep, I could have cut it better.

I just cut out all of my embellishments and pieces of paper and then built up the layers.

 I will be back tomorrow for the ATCAS challenge.  It would be great if you could join in.  It is always a lot of fun.

Helloooooo!  Von from Messy Me.  I was thinking about you today so I just wanted to say hello in case you called in.

Happy Crafting
