Posters and Prints

Today we have launched the first design in our 'Posters and Prints' range
This is an A3 borderless print 16.5" x 11.7" which has been based on my 'Keep Calm and Drink Wine' digi design. 
The frame is for display purposes only  and the design will not have the Pink Gem Designs watermark on it

Printed using Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss2 ink on high quality Epson Archival Matte Paper (192 gsm). This combination of paper and pigment inks produces beautiful and vibrant prints which remain colour fast over a period of many years.

I have one on my kitchen wall and it looks would make a great gift

You can find the print here

A Vintage Christmas

Is everyone on course for Christmas?

I have spent the last two afternoons designing these 'Vintage Christmas Sentiments' set.
I really do need to start making some Christmas cards so these will come in handy.
I love floating the PNG files over paper before I print them out especially white ones as you get such a nice effect.
I have got an early Christmas present....a printer that takes thick's not set up yet but it will be tomorrow....can't wait!
Now I am wondering if the white PNG files will print on to Kraft....if they come out ok they should look watch this space!

More Christmas Circle Sentiments

These sentiments are proving popular so I thought I would make another set
This is 'Christmas Circle Sentiments 2'

Each sentiment comes with 3 PNG files....two in colour as shown and one with a transparent background.
As you can see from the display picture with the transparent PNG the large background design remains white..... you can print it over patterned paper of your own choice to get some great effects!
I have made these designs nice and large so you can either size them down to sentiment size or you can  keep them  large as the centre focus for your projects

Happy Birthday Pink Gem Designs!

Wow I just realised as I was about to do the challenge post for 'A Gem of a Challenge' that Pink Gem Designs will be 5yrs old tomorrow....can't believe it!
Well I just checked our records and we launched on 11th November 2008 with just two polymer stamp designs for sale on  a blog lol......and Pink Gem Designs was born.
It was never a planned business it just kind of happened through my love of card making and doodling

Anyway enough waffle and back to the challenge
This challenge is hosted by Sazzle again and she has chosen 'Ribbon and Lace'
please pop over and take a look at the girls stunning creations.
This time its the turn of 'The Pinks' (we have two teams 'Pinks' and 'Gems') and next week it will be 'The Gems' showing their 'Ribbon and Lace' designs
We have our new DT girl Sue Bearhouse joining us today for the first time :)
Anyway I am going up to Leeds for the weekend so catch you all soon

Have an Ice Christmas

'Christmas is Coming' and time is running out!
One of the reasons I made the 'Coconut Ice' Christmas papers and ornaments is because I have not got much time for making Christmas cards this year.
These digi products are so easy to print off and make into cards.....a few sticky gems and voila!

.....and if you are just started out in fancy equipment,needed!
Just a printer,guillotine (something to cut the paper Straight) some sticky gems and pearls which you can find here......and the jingle bell here which is threaded on some silver elastic cord which is used for making jewelry
Oh and of course my 'Coconut Ice' digi papers and ornaments downloads which can be found here

Coconut Ice

Coconut Ice is my latest Christmas digi downloadable paper pack and I have also made some matching ornaments in PNG file format.
The ornaments come in colour only so no colouring here but you can have so much fun layering the designs as they are PNG files with transparent backgrounds.
The papers are JPG ready to print at 12x12 inch but look great printed straight on to A4 paper/card
Images shown here are low res for copyright purposes but the images you will receive will be crisp 300dpi

Winter Wishes

I am late finishing this DT card today which means I have photographed it under my daylight lamp as I have lost the natural daylight....oh I hate Winter!
I do like making Christmas cards though :)
Here is my card for the 'Gem of a Challenge' halfway reminder for challenge 58
The theme has been set by Sazzle and it is Polka Dots/Spots
For my card I have used my new 'Licorice Ice' downloadable papers shown in the post below and I have to say I just love them as they print out beautifully!
I have used one of the little penguins from 'Penguin Set 2' and a sentiment from Christmas Circle Sentiments Set
I have used the transparent png file for the sentiment....layered over some pattern paper then printed it out.......can you see how the white snowflake stayed in the image and the pattern printed behind can get really creative with these sentiments :)

I have also used
Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Petal (for the edges of the card)

Ribbon gems and brads from stash

Licorice Ice

Good afternoon everyone....and what a lovely sunny afternoon it is!
It was a bit wet and miserable this morning when I  took Gem for her morning walk
Nice and dry now which is good because I know a lot of peeps will be planning their Guy Fawkes celebrations for this evening.
We had a little box of fireworks in the garden last week when Mia was staying with us for half term.

Over at 'A Gem of a Challenge' it is a mid way reminder and today it's the turn of 'The Gems' to show their wonderful pop over and take a look.....the theme is Polka Dots/ Spots set by the lovely Sazzle

Speaking of Spots and Dots I have been busy  the last couple of days creating these new downloadable papers called 'Licorice Ice' 
I made them to match my little Penguin Digi Sets 1 & 2 and the colours remind me of Licorice Allsorts lol
There are 24 papers in total and they have a lovely texture effect that will look great printed on linen effect paper/card

You can find these and all of my new digi products here
