I decided to do a new baby card for the challenge....I used a Lili of the Valley image which I love, so cute! She is coloured in with Promarkers and I added some sparkle with Stickles. The backing paper is from Dovecrafts Piece of Cake pad, which I mounted onto pink cardstock. I used my Nesties for layering the image, and embossed 2 panels of white card using the Cuttlebug baby folder. I inked these panels with pale pink ink to bring out the details. I embellished with some handmade flowers that I cut with some Marianne flower dies, and a computer printed sentiment.
I received this adorable stamp this week from Little Claire's and couldn't wait to sit down and play!
It's a sweet giraffe, and not just for xmas if you cut the tree and holly off....I made a couple of cards with him to show this...they'll be on their way to Gill at Little Claire's on Monday!
The first card was an Xmas one, I coloured him in with Promarkers and cut him out with my Nesties. I embossed some panels of card using a snowflake folder and mounted these onto red card. The sentiment is a Kanban one I think.....I like the way this card has turned out, it's quite simple but very festive!
The second card was to show another idea for the stamp, a get well card! Again he was coloured in with Promarkers and cut out with Nesties. The backing paper is a 12x12 sheet I bought at a craft stal, not sure who makes it though. I embossed a strip of lilac card, and added that across the middle of the card. I embellished it with a bow and Card Candy from my stash, and stamped a simple sentiment.
Oh gosh, where has the week gone?? It doesn't seem like 5 minutes since last Monday when I posted my DT card for Pear Tree....and now it's that time again!! I must explain my absence....me and my best friend Paula are planning on selling some of our crafty bits at a fair, so preparations have begun in earnest for that!!
Anyway, onto this week's Pear Tree Designs card....this week, we have a sketch to follow, with a twist, the twist being gems somewhere on the card. The prize this week is from Lilac Lemon Designs....so hop on over and check it out!
I chose a cute Tilda image to use this wee, which I coloured in with my trusty Promarkers, adding some Stickles to the roses. The backing papers are from My Minds Eye, love these so much! The ric-rac, flowers and gems are from my stash. I also used my Nesties for Tilda's panel and the sentiment panel...the sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.
I wanted to use my new Anya stamp which I bought in the Crafts U Love sale, so she was my starting point. I coloured her using Promarkers and added white highlights with a gel pen & Stickles for some sparkle. The backing paper is from Forever Friends Pink Parfait pad which I mounted onto a dark pink springfold base (made by me lol). I used my Nesties for matting Anya and added her to the centre. The roses are from my stash, and the sentiment and card candy are from Craftwork Cards.
I was sent these lovely stamps from Little Claire's to have a play with and finally got the chance to play on Thursday....now the kids are back to school, I can get back into my crafty routine lol.
The first card was a spring fold card...I've been wanting to try one of these for ages and finally got round to it...and they're so much easier than I thought! I used dark blue card for the card base and the blue paper was from a folder on my laptop. I stamped the owls 4 times and coloured them in with promarkers. I cut each one into a square and highlighted each with Stickles. I mounted them onto dark blue then silver mirri card and stuck it to the diamond top of the card. I used some peel offs from Little Claire's for the sentiment and decoration.
The second card is a 5 in square card and the backing paper is from a Wild Rose Studio pad. I stamped the owls again, and coloured the owls in with Promarkers but used ink for the sky,rubbing it on with cotton wool. I decoupaged the owls to give a bit of extra dimension, and cut them into separate squares and mounted onto brown Bazzill card. I added some lace,gems, and flowers from my stash and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
It's Challenge 16 this week over on Pear Tree Designs and this week's theme is Animals. I had an anniversary card to make for my darling hubby and thought straight away of the animals I wanted to use! The prize this week is a Guest DT spot for a month, a crafty goody bag, and 3 digi images from Donna's store.
I used a Penny Black image of 2 hedgehogs and coloured them in with promarkers, highlighting the heart with Stickles. The backing paper is from my stash, not sure where it came from but it matched the cardstock perfectly. I embossed a panel with my Swiss Dots folder and added a sweet sentiment. The hedgehogs are mounted onto oval nesties. The buttons & string are from my stash, and the greeting was done on my computer...note to self, need some anniversary greetings or stamps!!
I just wanted to share these cards I've made using this month's club set from Little Claires....it's a lovely festive set with a poinsettia, xmas pud, a cracker, adorable penguin and some greeting stamps.
The first card was made using the poinsettia stamp....coloured in with my promarkers and highlighted with gold pen and Stickles for some sparkle. I cut a triangle from the front section of a green card blank and added an Anita's border strip to the edge. The paper is from a Forever Friends Xmas pack, attached to the inside of the card blank. I used my Nesties to layer up the poinsettia and attched it to the front. A bow from my stash and a simple sentiment completes the card.
For my second card, I used the cute penguin, he was coloured in to match the backing papers and I added some sparkle to his hat with Stickles. The backing paper was from a freebie bundle I had on my computer and I used some blue card for layering. I embossed a panel with snowflakes and layered it with the penguin. The ribbon and gems are from my stash, the snowflake is an Anita's dimension sticker, and the sentiment is one from the set.
I'm late putting this on my blog due to my hols and problems getting onto my laptop last night...the internet was mega slow!!
It's challenge 15 this week, with a sketch to follow and our sponsors this week are Robyn's Fetish Digital stamps....I missed out on the chance to play with one of their images though as my card was made in advance before my hols.
I used a cute Hanglar image that was sent to me by a friend, which I coloured with my promarkers and added Stickles for highlights. The backing paper is My Minds Eye, and the lacy borders were done with my MS punch. The flowers and brads are from my stash. The sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.
I am a married stay at home mum who loves cardmaking, stamping and all things papercraft!!! I have recently discovered the joys of stamping and Promarkers and I am now addicted! I also have way too much stash but can't stop collecting more!!
