group post using this month's new releases!

 Group post using this month's new releases!

Hey there everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the summer! I have two small children home on their summer holidays, and it is chaos! 

We have a couple of design team members off on their vacations at the minute too,and I really hope they are enjoying themselves and getting some much needed R &R 
 and unfortunately our design team member Sharon has made the hard decision to leave us- she will be sadly missed on the team... 
so with you today is a small skeleton crew post, to provide you some more inspiration using the images released in Cheri's web shop earlier this month on the 16th

you can find the link to the shop HERE

Lynda really has been busy, with two cards this time!
She's used ponytails and shotgun shells, and Candy Kisses to create two very different but equally striking cards- one in monochromatic colours and the very PINK candy Kisses card, which is my favourite- I'm a sucker for pink... which do you like the best?

I (Rachel) Have made a card using 'Tequila' and I think you can see I had as much fun arranging this for it's photo shoot as I did making the card... funnily enough though, I couldn't find any tequila!
I decided to try a new approach with this card, making the grey cardstock the main feature of the background , and adding strips of bright patterned paper. I think they complement each other beautifully, don't you?

Vicky has been busy doing some colouring, and one of her favourite past times right now is adding digital stamps to colouring pages, and journalling on them, which I think is a really fun and a brilliant way of making your colouring books something to keep and cherish! featured on this page is the digi 'Queen Collector' 

That's us done for this month! I will leave you guessing at just WHAT we are going to be sharing with you next month! there will be new images again on the 16th, and lots of inspiration has already been created by the team to be posted throughout the month, so don't forget to hit FOLLOW to keep up to date on everything!

We also have a BRAND NEW facebook group for Karleigh Sue Digital stamps, so please do come and check it out!

Be a Unicorn by DT Lynda

Helloooo!! DT  Lynda here again sharing a bit more inspiration for you. I had a very productive weekend making up some gorgeous Karleigh Sue projects so you can expect to see me popping up a fair bit , hopefully helping you to get your creative mojo flowing.

This time around I've used Be a Unicorn. She comes in two versions, clothed and risque, and as you can see I have coloured up the clothed version. I love all things mythical so she's right up my street. 

She is coloured with Copics and promarkers, fussy cut and mounted on some starry paper from my stash, which I added sparkle to with gems. The sentiment stamp is by Visible Image. I think it looks really effective for such a simple technique, don't you agree?

If I have inspired you to create, and I hope I have, the Karleigh Sue team would love to see what you are making using your digis too. You are very welcome to join up to our brand new Facebook group and show us your projects and generally join in the crafty chat there. 

Thanks for stopping by

Queen Collector by DT Lynda

Hi folks! DT Lynda here stopping by to share a project I have made using Queen Collector, a recent new release image. I think she's adorable and she was just perfect for a tag bookmark. 

She is coloured with Copics and Promarkers, and I've given her grown some extra glitz with distress stickles. The sentiment is hand stamped and edged with distress ink and I have mounted her on an old book page , distressed, with some script washi tape.

I hope you've enjoyed taking a look at my work. If you want to see more Karleigh Sue projects and share your own do join us in our brand new Facebook group. You can find us here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Retail Therapy by DT Lynda ( and some exciting news!)

Helloooo!!! Lynda here stopping by to share a little inspiration with you. This time I have used the cute Retail Therapy. She's just perfect for all those of us that love to shop or have fashion divas in our lives.

I don't often make rectangular cards but am on a mission to use some scraps of patterned paper up, and I had some that fitted the bill perfectly, just the right shape. I coloured her in copics and promarkers and diecute around her before mat and layering to create some dimension. I stamped the senti ( from a Roald Dahl stamp set) onto a die cut tag and added some embellishments to finish. I hope you like her.

Now, I promised you news too and here it is. There is a brand new Karleigh Sue fan page for crafters over on Facebook. Woohoo!!You can find it right here. We are missing seeing your crafty creations, so this page is there for you to share your makes, keep up to date with all things Karleigh Sue and join in some crafty chat and fun. We would love to see you there! 

If you are more of a colouring book fan, without the crafting and like a bit of sass and sexy  attitude in your colouring books then don't forget you can follow Cheri and some other talented artists over at the Queens of Coloring page too!

Well that's it from me for today. Have a great week and I'll be back soon with more inspiration for you. 

Take care.

Jessica Jones

Howdy folks! Lynda here just stopping by to share a little bit of inspiration with you all, using the ultra sexy Jessica Jones. Isn't she ace? I'm a bit of a country girl at heart so love the new western themed digis from Cheri- go check them all out in the store here.

To create my card I coloured with copics and promarkers, and mounted her on some distressed scrapbook paper behind a frame. The senti was cut using a Tim Holtz aplhabet die and adhered to kraft card.

I hope this has inspired you to get creative this weekend. 

Have a good one!

Outer Space....

Hi Karleigh Sue Fans!
A quick post today to share a quick altered index card I made.
I have been playing along at ICAD (Index Card a Day) again this year - last year I completed all 61 cards and am hoping to again this year!
The "prompt" for this Day 26 card was "Space Invaders"!!

For my index card background I have used Distress Inks and white paint - it's my "version" of the "Bokeh" technique which I have seen around a bit and decided to give it a try myself!
Cheri's "Extraterrestrial" digi has been printed directly onto the index card along with the computer generated wording and stars.
A quick way and effective way to complete a card - still looks great - just a bit quicker with printing directly onto a patterned background and no colouring!
Hope you like it!
Sharon DT

Primpin up - Crafting Vicky

Hello!  Happy Indepence Day to all our American friends!  I had my holiday on Friday being from Canada so today it's back to work I go.  I hope that you will get to enjoy this day with family or doing some crafting :)

I'm here for my inspiration post of the month and this time I played with my "En Masse" journal.  This is a little junk journal that I made where I put down multiples of an image of something that I liked or that inspired me to collect it and glue it down.  There's something about glueing paper down that brings back the kid in us!!!

Anyway, I can't do a simple glueing down... I seem to need to personalize it a bit and that's where the fabulous digis from Karleigh Sue came in.  The page that I'm sharing today is with a collection of lipstick and of course there was a PERFECT digi to go with this.  I also found an awesome sentiment while doing a google search and I thought it totally completed the pages.

The digi that I cropped to really highlight the lipstick part is  Primpin Up.

Here's the view of the page spreads:
And here is a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  You can also see better the sentiment that I paired with her.
I really adore how this turned out.  And the great fun of this is that it's just for ME!  For the fun of it.  Those are the best makes :)  

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