KLM Designs DT Call

Hi Everyone

Yes I know I've gone from posting once in a blue moon to more than once a day! The cards for this post are ones I made for my application to be a part of the KLM Designs DT. They are another digital stamp company and their products are fab, you can find them KLM Designs , so please go and take a look.

So here are the cards I made, I know a lot of the DT calls ask for your favorite cards but I wanted to make new ones so that I didn't keep putting the same projects on my blog.

This first card uses an image from a company called Digital Designs by Louby Loo , this little girl is called Maggie May and I coloured her with my Copic markers. I then used papers from a K & Company pad (sorry I don't know the name) and finished the card with satin ribbon, Kaisercraft flowers coloured with copics to match and a glue rub on from Papermania that I added doodlebug bonbon glitter to.

Here is a closer look at Maggie May

For my second card I used one of my beautiful Magnolia stamps called Tilda with Umbrella, she has again been coloured with copic markers - I chose colours that were in the traditional Welsh costume as she reminded me of that. I used papers from a Hot off the Press Cardmakers pad and finished her with some mother of pearl flowers (coloured with copics) attached with brads and some satin ribbon from my stash.

Here is a close up of Tilda

For this card I use one of the digital designs that I discovered recently that The Greeting Farm sells, her name is Catcher Anya. I used my Copic markers to add colour to her and used papers from a Diecuts with a View stack. I finished the project with some swirl stamps inked with versamagic ink - the stamps are from Hot off the Press and Papermania's Marie Curie special set, some rhinestones and some satin ribbon from my stash.

Here is a closer look at this cute little girl.

For this card I used an image from S2G - Shirleys 2 Girls and her name is Gracie Original. I coloured her with my copic markers and used papers from K & Company's birthday paper pad. To complete the card I used some ribbon from my stash.

Here is a close up of Gracie,

For my final card I used an image from KLM called Back to School, of course it is coloured with my copics, I used some K & Company school papers for the card and finished it with a diecut from one of my sizzex sizzlet dies.

Here is the close up of the back to school image.

Well that is the cards I came up with, I really hope that they like them as I'm so enjoying working with digi stamps and I would love to work with their images on a regular basis.

Just quickly I thought I would let you know that I've heard from Club Anya and I was unsuccessful in their DT Call, but as I said previously I had a feeling the competition would be high.

Anyway that's it for this post, 'speak' to you all again soon.

what great cards. I especially love Maggie May only because I have that image as well but there she sits, un-inked and waiting.
