Hi there, you on the Bearly Mine Designs Blog Hop are you?
Oh, you say you just came here from your Dashboard, sorry, what was that? you just happened to stumble by here? Ah, right, I see... Well if you'd like to go back to Donna's blog and start from there, you'll get to see some cracking cards by my teamies, including Donna herself! However, if you got here from Nicola's Blog, you're on the right track ...
Today the Bearly Mine Design Team are showcasing Papers and Inserts from Donna's newest release - Designer Extreme Vol. III :D This disc is jam packed with papers for all occasions including Christmas, Easter, Valentines not to mention every day occasions such as floral, vintage, spots and stripes (I cant list em all but there are lots!!).
I'm hoping you have so far enjoyed the hop, there are a couple more teamies to see and lots more cards!
Speaking of cards, I've made four with the papers that Donna sent us all prior to release. Once I got my disc I added inserts to some of them :D
Here I have created a lovely Christmas card in traditional colours. Using Herb from the WoJ Winter collection, a tree charm and a SeeDs greeting stamp I think it looks pretty nifty! The Insert is fab, and matches the paper I used on the front of the card :D
Here we have a lovely summery card with the lovely Sarah Kay sprinkling some love :D I love the flower paper with the green, orange, reds and blues - its such a pretty design. I also LOVE this insert! I think the little butterfly and the bow are lovely and the design is so simple and versatile :D Image coloured with PrismaColours.
I created this next card for my Nephew who will be One in November (He is a Leo). This is another WoJ image from the new Animals Collection. I used a blue and brown spotted back ground and a lovely squared light blue one for contrast. I carried this blue squared one inside, you cant see it but it has a nestie in the centre ready for a message. I think I will have a play with this card and add a Number 1 somewhere, and also try and fit his name in too! Image coloured with Prisma Colours.
Its my last card, and nearly time for you to leave :(
I know its only August, but October will soon be here! I asked Donna if I could have some Halloween papers so I could have a play with colours I wouldn't normally use. These papers are so bright and so fitting for Halloween. I love the ghost insert. I used little Tilda for this card and coloured her in purple with my Copics. The sentiment, web, spider and the little ghostie in the corner of the insert are from Penny Black.
I've really enjoyed making these cards. The best thing about having Donna's Discs is you can precolour your images and then find perfect backing papers for them. It also means that you have lots of colours to chose from and if your stuck for ideas on colouring your images you can choose your papers in advance and match your images to them!
Right - enough of my banter - off you go to Marcea as she is next on the HOP! Don't forget to leave comments on every ones blogs, I'm sure you've already read, but Donna is offering up some lovely candies :D
Donna is having a SALE for this weekend only - So be sure you visit the Bearly Mine Designs Creations to see what offers there are!
