Some Weekend inspiration from Dressy Girl Carolyn

Hiya peeps! Carolyn here  It's my day to give you a little inspiration.

This type of card is new for me but I liked the end result.
I don't normally use paper images to use as added embellishments to my cards.
I thought the colors were fun and why not!

This digi is  part of a trio called Three Little Autumn Girls. Isn't she just adorable!
I colored her up using Copics and added some cut outs from paper for added interest.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

All wrapped up...Inspiration from dressy girl Anne

Morning Everyone
It's that time of the month where I (Anne) get the chance to, hopefully inspire you with one of Wendy's gorgeous girls :)

This is 'All Wrapped Up' Isn't she adorable.  I've coloured her using copic markers and although it's not showing on the pic there is a little glamour dust sprinkled over her dress.  You'll just need to use your imagination lol
The papers are also available from the shop and can I just say that they print out beautifully, I promise you won't be disappointed with the quality of these.
So there you have it, my pinkalicious creation! 
Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting

Pointillism inspiration from Dressy Girl Lizzy

Sooooooo cute!

Here I have used the inspirational post to tell you all about Pointillism, and here is the Wikipedia explanation:

Pointillism /ˈpwɛntɨlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure color are applied in patterns to form an image.

I thought it might be fun to apply this method of colouring an image, and I am quite pleased with the result, the technique actually compliments the cute little image really well.  It probably took as long to do as "proper" colouring,  but give it a go, its fun!!

Thanks for visiting our inspirational blog.  Lizzy xxxx

Little Star inspiration from dressy girl Kat

Hello lovely people!

It's Kat here today and I have a card to share with you using the super cute Happy Christmas Little Star.  I love how these images work well 'all dressed up' with lots of embellishments or kept CAS like this one.

Now, I really love my pink girly cards but this pretty aqua just seemed a perfect choice for this image and I still managed to sneak in a little pink!  And a little sparkle too!

I hope you enjoy my creation and for more details pop over to my blog and say hello :-)

Friday Sweetie from dressy girl Bettina

Well it is friday again, almost weekend. Just a few hours at work and then it is weekend all over again. Ok let's get to it. It's Bettina here today and I have another inspirational post for you today. 

How sweet isn't she in blue?? You gotta know by now I love making soft blue cards, although I love other colours too. Her name is Sweetie Pie. Don't you just love her cute face? I think she is my new favourite, although I love all the All Dressed Up stamps.

I coloured her up with my promarkers and used WOC lace and flowers. I just love how she turned out. Hope you do too!!

Have a lovely weekend all!!

Little Christmas Star by Christine R

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! :)  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  It's Christine here with a new card to share so I'll get right to it :)

How sweet is this image?  She's called Happy Christmas Little Star and I just LOVE her!  I love all of the sweet All Dressed Up Stamps, they are all so adorable and unique; there's just nothing else on the market like them and I just love them.  I of course colored her with my copics.  Here are the copics I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Blues: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Yellows: Y35, Y38, E18
Bunny: W2, W4, W6

I also added lots of glitter for sparkle (here's a tip for adding glitter: put Glossy Accents all over where you want your glitter, then dump your glitter over the Glossy Accents, tap off the excess, and let it dry; it sticks great and looks extra shiny).  I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from Recollections (Michael's).  I added a bow and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The die cuts were made using a Memory Box die.  Here are a couple more pictures:

What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Hugs, Christine

Sew Pretty, Images are not just for colouring as Dressy Girl Nancy Shows us..

Good morning to you!

It's Nancy here to share a new project that I hope will inspire you! 
Many of you have already seen the stitchery that I made using one of Wendy's lovely images. I have another stitched project for you but this time I stitched on paper instead of fabric. 

I used the sweet little puppy from the freebie page. 
I printed it "fit to page" onto 8 1/2 X 11 kraft cardstock. 
I pierced holes evenly on all the main lines, 
and stitched using a variety of colours of embroider floss. 
The yoyo embellishments are added just for Wendy!
More details on how this was put together can be found at my BLOG.

Wendy has many adorable images that are perfect for this application!
So pop on over to the SHOP and be inspired! :o)
