Xmas Card

I've finally got round to making some Christmas cards. This one is using a Penny Black stamp (always a favourite) and is coloured with Promarkers which I'm still getting to grips with.

Yes I am still here!!! :-)

I made this card for one of the little girls that Poppy-Skye has made friends with at some of the toddler groups we go to. She was two last Wednesday.

I bought the card kit from Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago as I don't really have time to stamp and colour these days with a toddler in the house, so thought I'd use the kit to "cheat" for a while until I get chance to go back to stamping and colouring when Poppy-Skye is a bit older and not quite so demanding of my attention.

Teachers' Gift

This is still a work in progress. I've just ordered some Tim Holtz Hitch Fasteners to go on the front of the drawer but as I haven't posted anything for a while again and I'm supposed to be making more of an effort I thought I'd put it on anyway.
The papers are by Do Crafts
The stamp and sentiment are by Crafter's Companion
The banner stamp is from a set by Do Crafts
The image is part coloured with Twinkling H2Os and part paper pieced
The flowers and leaves on the left are dies by Marianne Designs
The leaves on the right are a die by Little Claire Designs
Oh and the fancy scalloped edging is a die from the Spellbinders Edgeablities range.

I think that's covered everything. :0)

50th Birthday Card

I have a friend who likes me to make special cards for her for her family but she usually has a very clear idea about what she wants on it. This can be both a blessing and a curse. For her dad's 50th she wanted a card with a picture of a motorbike on it, balloons, glitz but very masculine glitz and on the outside she wanted "To a Dad" and on the inside "who makes turning 50 look cool"

The photo of the motorbike I got off the internet which I mounted onto black and then silver metalic card. The patterned paper is by Hot off the Press (I think) which I added silver and black gems to. The balloons and lettering on the front were made using dies by Go Kreate.

For the inside I printed the words on the computer and then added the 50 which I made using my Cricut. I again added little silver gems to the 0 to add the bling. To finish I stamped the image of the bike onto white card then cut round it and added it to the bottom corner.

She was really made up with it and said her dad loved it too! Phew! :0)

Mum's Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my mum for her birthday back in February. See I am still making cards just not been very good at blogging them! Sorry!

The stamp at the bottom says "Dance like no one's watching that can have you committed"

Cute Card Thursday

The Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week is a sketch and here is my interpretation of it.

The papers are by My Minds Eye.
The snowman stamp is by Fun Stamps and coloured with Twinkling H2Os.
The snowflakes are made with a paper punch.

ABC Christmas Challenge

I made these cards for the ABC Christmas Challenge which this week is Vintage. Well I actually wanted to try out my new stamp from Crafty Individuals and the ABC Christmas challenge just happened to fit my cards but it amounts to the same thing. :0)
The papers for both cards are by Kars which I've distressed using scissors.

As previously stated the stamp is by Crafty Individuals (fab website and they sent not one, but two free gifts with my order - lovely surprise). The image is coloured with Twinkling H2Os. The snowflakes are made using paper punches.

Penny Black Challenge

This week's Penny Black Challenge is a sketch. This is my interpretation of it.
The papers are all by My Minds Eye.
The image is a Penny Black coloured with Twinkling H2Os.
The snowflakes are paper punches with small gems in the centre.
The swirl is a Sizzix die which I've customised.
