September new release!

there are four new images being released here at karleigh sue today! 

they are called; I love you, chit chat queen, snail mail and message in a bottle! 

Snail mail, made by Winnie

Winnie says: I've been aware that there is ongoing bullying in the scrapping society in Norway, and this story prompted me to make two cards (one of which is shown here today, and the other which you will have to wait until the 30th to see!)
This one is to show support for anyone being bullied, hence the 'just because you are my friend' sentiment.

We think this card would definitely cheer someone up!

I love you, made by Rachel Gillham 

 Rachel: I used 'I love you'  - 'I thought this image was perfect to use alongside one of my LOTV sentiment stamps that I recently found whilst tidying my craft area! of course, if you love someone, you must think they are pretty wonderful!
I also used some bold colours, to contrast the simple colours I used colouring the digi, and some gorgeous die cut edging strips, from Stampin up!'
don't those flowers just make this card so pretty? 

Message in a bottle, made by Crafting Vicky

 Crafting Vicky says ' This digi is just perfect for a birthday card for someone that you don't get to see too often!'  we agree with her, and hope you do too! 

Chit Chat queen made by Lynda 

 Lynda says ' I love this image. She's perfect for those cards for tricky teenagers! I have coloured her with promarkers and Copics, and teamed her up with papers from the fabulous girl range by Recollections, taking design inspiration from a sketch on split coast stampers' 

we agree, this card is a perfect for teens, who seem to be glued to their phones a lot of the time, catching up on gossip (because they don't get enough of that while at school, right??!)

You can now find all these images in the digi store so have fun and do some serious craft play. We hope that you have some ideas on how to use these images after seeing these amazing creations from the design team- don't forget if you would like more information on any of the projects featured here, you can take a look at their individual blogs for a more in depth explanation! 

if you check back here again on the 30th, you will be able to see the design teams take on these images again (we can never just choose one we want to play with!)

Wanna Get Wild

Lynda here, popping by to share a fun card I have made using Wanna Get Wild. I just love her cheeky sass don't you? 

I felt like a spot of inky crafting so created a great backdrop for her using distress inks, a harlequin mask and a set of jester stamps I bought ages ago and hadn't got around to using. They compliment her perfectly and I am thrilled with the way it turned out. The senti is inspired by my favourite song from the one and only Robbie Williams. I was lucky enough to see him perform it live years ago and all I can say is WOW! It's one of those musical memories that will stay with me forever.

If you haven't already, do pop across to our new(ish) facebook group ( find it here) . We'd love to see your Karleigh Sue creations in there.

Thanks for stopping by

Nelsa - Crafting Vicky

Hello!  I'm here this time for September's inspiration!!!! WOW the year sure goes by fast.  The kids are already into school and it's back to the routine.  But I'm not ready to let my summer go.... and this means coloring by the pool.

That's in fact what I did here for the background as well as for the wonderful digi Nelsa.

I really love using my coloring books as backgrounds and this way it will become a full journal when I'm finished with it.  I wanted this little fairy to be perched somewhere.  And the branches were just perfect.
The image was colored with my copics and I used a gel pen to make her wings all shiny. The background was colored with my colorsoft derwent pencils.  The sentiment was found while researching on google.

 Hope you like it and that it does give you some inspiration.  Have a fabulous Saturday and stay creative!!!  Don't forget to check out the store for some fab digis!!!

Augusts new images, take two!

Hey there Karleigh Sue fans!

This month seems to have simultaneously dragged, and gone by too quickly! over here in the UK, I'm getting ready for my children to go back to school, and over in the USA Cheri has been really busy working on her new book- it's an exciting one, as if you have been 'pinned up' by cheri, your picture will be in the book! how awesome, eh?

in today's post, we are bringing you some more projects made with this month's new images! 

Lynda has totally NAILED monochromatic on this card- it makes for a delightfully creepy creepmas card!

She's also played with voodoo doll, and she really pops against that background. don't you love the texture on this card?

(Rachel) I've created a little creepmas sleigh, with Merry Creepmas- I can just imagine her loading up her sleigh with ghoulish gifts.. I only had leftover candy from last years Halloween.. candy canes don't last from year to year in this house!

Vicky has outdone herself with another gorgeous page, I love the under the sea colour scheme and all those little glittery sequins! she's got a video to share with you in her post too! 

and Winnie has made a card with take no shit , and I love the grunge feel on this card!

Which is your favourite image, and what would you do with yours?
you can grab all these and more in cheri's store, and then hp over to share them in the karleigh sue facebook group- we always love to see what you are doing with the images, and some new crafty blogs to take a peek at.. so if you haven't joined us already, come and say hey!

Sexy and I know it! - Crafting Vicky

Hello!  I'm here to share with you my inspiration post for the month of August.  I wanted this month to convince you to try to use all your left over paints and other medium for future use.

In my case for this one I had made a brusho background and I used my little index card to wipe up the excess.  It was the perfect start to a background for the image Sexy and I know it.

I made a super short video to share with you the process here:

And here's the view of the ICAD ( the term is used for Index card a Day - but most of us use it just to refer to an index card because not many actually do one a day....)

Using leftovers like this really does jump start your creative process!!! This image was colored with copics and fussy cut.  I also have to admit to being totally ADICTED to magazine cut outs... so much fun using pre-typed sentiments this way.

 Hope you like it and that it does give you some inspiration.  Have a fabulous Friday and stay creative!!!  Don't forget to check out the store for some fab digis!!!

New release for August

This month we are playing with new digital images with  more of a creepmas/halloween themed feel!
I am very excited for this tme of the year, as I'm not really an avid holiday fan, but I do like halloween! It's not so much of a big thing over in the uk, but our village usually throws a party for the children, and it is a lot of fun. I know Cheri is a big halloween fan too, and enjoys carving pumpkins when she isn't drawing stuff up!

Rachel, Karleigh Sue Coordinator

There are four new images which will shortly be arriving in the Karleigh Sue Digital stamps section of Cheri's Store which you can find at www.cherishull.com 
there is one cute and sweet and three dark and creepy (but still rather cute in their own way)

the four images are called: Take no shit, Tattered fairy, Voodoo Doll and Merry Creepmas!

The team have all used different mediums and layouts for their projects which I hope will give you some ideas on using the images to create your own projects- and we'd love to see yours with the new images over in the Karleigh Sue digital stamps fan group on facebook!

Lynda using tattered fairy

Lynda has combined this image with a background digital stamp from another company, for a wonderfully cute and whimsical feel card which you can read about on her blog

Rachel Using  voodoo doll

You can find more details on this card, and the creation of the background on her blog

 Crafting Vicky using take no shit

Vicky has done a video of the creation of this page, and you can find it on her blog!don't you just love that awesome skull in the background? 

 Winnie using merry creepmas

for more details on the creation of this card, you can hop over to her blog- don't you just love that eery green skin tone?

Thank you for joining us for our new release, and we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we've enjoyed making these projects for you!
