Introducing Lofty the giraffe!....

Meet McLofty! Cute isn't he! He's part of a the new range of rubber stamps from Joanna Sheen. Here are some samples I have done using this comical character!



This is actually a penny slider card, I used the instructions from the project book from Phyllis, aka Diamond CardCraft, it's from the Shape and Score the Eazi-Score way book and it's absolutley toffee to put together. Looks complicated, but if I can do it then anyone can! The tartan backing papers are also by Joanna Sheen. McLofty was coloured using the Inktense watercolour pencils



P.C Lofty


Now my wicked and twisted sense of humour kicked in here and turned this one into a 'Wedding' card! lol....I'm sorry if I've offended anyone...but I just couldn't resist!! Especially with those handcuffs!!
I used little jump rings to make the chain on the handcuffs and also for the keychain. Again Lofty was coloured using the Inktense watercolour pencils.


Lofty San!


Again Lofty was coloured using the inktense pencils, but I used the Sakura stardust pens to colour the kimono. The backing papers are from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams cdrom. I made a little charm with a tassle and some oriental coins just to finish it off....it's hard to see in this picture but the black card is actually that gorgeous Tapestry card.


Dr Lofty!


George Clooney eat your heart out!! lol .

I just love the base card on this one! It's very fresh and clean looking, and i don't know why but it just seem to say 'hospital' to me. Anyway Lofty was again coloured using the inktense water colour pencils. I just put a piece of plain white card through the big shot with the Swirls cuttlebug folder for the backing, and punched a few flowers to finish it off! I must admit to having a laugh at the 'medicine bottle' though!!! A great get well card this one!


Seamus O'Lofty!


I made this for my son who was sitting his third year exams a couple of weeks ago.
lofty is again coloured using the inktense pencils, but I used the Twinkling H20's to colour his suit and beard! I stamped the horsehoe randomly for the background onto some gold paper and just added some peel-offs to finish it off.


......and last but not least....Lofty Greenfingers!


I deliberately picked the most garish colour for the sweater! lol....I always wear the oldest and most horrible clothes I have when I'm gardening so thought I'd do the same for him!
This card gave me no end of trouble! But I perserved with it, not sure why I had so many problems but I got there in the end. The card is supposed to be shaped like a flower pot?!...again coloured with inktense pencils.....you can tell I love these pencils can't you?!...lol...

Thank you so much for bearing with me during this marathon blogging session....I do so much appreciate it.

Take care everyone
