This week's challenge at Pear Tree Designs is a sketch with the twist of gems somewhere on your project! Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Designs and we had a lovely set of images to play with as DT members.
I chose this cute little snowman as I thought he was adorable...he has been coloured in with Promarkers as usual, and mounted onto a snowflake embossed label. I used papers from one of my fave Papermania pads which all work so well together. The ribbon is from my stash, as are the gems.
The paper came to me first this week, I always wanted to use this but always been a bit nervous of such a bright paper lol....but it works really well with this stamp from Little Claire's. Both the paper are from a DCWV pad. I used my trusty Promarkers to colour the image and added some snowy sparkle with Stickles. I diecut some snowflakes from red card and added some snowflakes gems to the centres. The ribbon is from my stash, and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp.
I got this lovely digi to use, and I knew instantly which papers I wanted to use with her...they are from a Papermania paper pad which I love! I coloured the image in with my promarkers, adding some stickles for sparkle. I thought the music sheet paper was fab, and used a co-ordinating paper to make the frame for the shaker. My best friend kindly donated the seed beads to fill it with...didn't have anything like that lol. I added a poinsettia and lace from my stash, and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp.
I got an email last night from Donna at Pear Tree to say that the challenge blog and email account has been hijacked by someone who's changed the passwords.....she's working on getting some answers from Blogger etc!
So please bear with her, hopefully the blog will be back up and running asap.....and this week's challenge will be posted, along with the winner of last week!
The club stamp for Novemember over at Little Claire's is a gorgeous little girl, I love this stamp, it's very me!!
The first card I made with this stamp was a birthday card, although it can also be used as an Xmas card. I coloured the image in with Promarkers and glittered the fur a little for extra sparkle. The papers are My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus pad, love them!! I inked up the edges of the image and sentiments. I embellished the card with flowers and a button from my stash...and the sentiment is part of the set.
The second card is an Xmas themed one, using festive colours for the girl. Again, she is coloured in with promarkers and glittered on the fur for sparkle. I also added glitter around the label frame...can't have too much glitter for Xmas lol. The papers are from a Papermania pad and are matted with dark green card. The poinsettia is from my stash and the sentiment is a Lili of a Valley stamp.
Wow no new cards for ages then 3 in one night lol...the girl ones were made ages ago though lol x
Challenge 25 over at Pear Tree Designs this week is a fab sketch to follow, and it was fun to work with! Our sponsors this week is One Stop Card Craft, so pop over and check it out!
I decided to get another Xmas card out of the way, and had this lovely little stamp from Pink Gem Designs to ink up...and I wasn't disappointed!!! I coloured this cute snow couple in with my Promarkers and added some glitter for extra sparkle! The backing papers are from a Papermania Xmas pad, matted onto pink card. I used a band of ribbon wrapped on pink card for the side of the sketch. The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp. I also cut some snowflakes from glitter card and embellished with a gem.
I had seen this lovely stamp at Pink Gem Designs and thought it would be perfect for this card, as it's called Guy Fawkes Millie...it's so sweet! I coloured Millie in with promarkers, adding highlights with a white gel pen and matting her onto label Nesties. The backing paper is from a new paper pad I bought at the Arena, can't remember what it's called though! I cut 2 squares of black card, rounded the corners, and used the star part of the stamp to make some fireworks, which I glittered up to add some sparkle! Some black gems from my stash finish the card.
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!!
