Rudolph day


This is a quick Christmas card for Rudolph day using a decoupaged tree that has been around on my workspace since Christmas, waiting to be used. It was rescued from a gift card from M & S.

The strips of spotted card are snippets left from a previous card (they aren't crooked irl - it's the angle of the photo) and the poinsettia was from Hobbycraft.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 74


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday 74: anything goes with a twist ... add buttons. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For my card I used the Bugaboo Stamps baby fairy image (they are sponsoring the challenge), colouring with spectrum noir pens. I die cut the image with one of the Spellbinder's marvelous squares and used another of those dies to cut the background for the image, using an offcut of spotted paper that matched the background piece. The organza ribbon with gems was from Hobbycraft. Buttons from my box of many buttons!

Happy birthday, man!


This is a birthday card for one of my great nephews who is a Simpsons fan (hope he still is!) - it's his birthday today and I know he's received this,, so it's safe to blog.

The top and bottom are offcuts from a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle I bought recently (the beauty of an 8 x 8 folder is that there will be snippets over after making a 6 x 6 card). The sentiment strip across the middle is another offcut, with some washi tape added and the Simpsons picture from the internet.

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 105 week 2


This is my design card for the cheerful stamp pad challenge 105 week 2, where the theme  is 'B stands for bear'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and you can join in our challenge here.

For my card I've used Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet 'boo boo bear'. I coloured with my newly-acquired Chameleon pens (please be gentle as I've only just started using these). I tore around a perspex oval template and brushed the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink. The background sentiment papers are offcuts. A few fabric hearts were added as it looked too plain without them.

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 53: red and gold. Please click on the link to see the lovely festive crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your red and gold Christmas entries.

I have to confess that with my crafting time having been cut over the past three weeks or so while John was in hospital, I resorted to using the combination of two Hunkydory kits to make this A5 size card.

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 68


This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 68: anything goes with a twist ... monochrome. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our monochromatic challenge.

The challenge is being sponsored by Lacy Sunshine and I used their Emily's kimono image, which I coloured with just one alcohol pen - the Chameleon 'sky blue' - this is my first attempt at using one of the Chameleon pens that were delivered earlier this week. As with anything new, practice is needed ... so I will take take and try to get better with using them.

Papers are from the DCWV Far East collection (I was given an 8 x 8 pad ages and ages ago and I'm still using some up, including the scrap piece down the side, as well as the other bigger offcuts). I stamped on to the background paper using Stazon teal blue, but it doesn't show up too well here. I also stamped the fan on to a scrap piece of card that matched the background and cut around it. Washi tape was added either side of the scrap piece.

This is also for Inkspirational 76 where this photo was given:

The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I used their Little penguin winter image which I coloured with spectrum noir pens.

Simply brown


Another card that I made a while ago, using a piece of card with text that I've had for ages wrapped round with some eyelash fibre (still have quite a lot of this kind of thing boxed away ... used to use it a lot, but it rarely sees the light of day now, which is a pity really). Die cut flowers from paper with text, edged with brown corduroy distress ink.

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 105: B stands for bear


This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 105: B stands for bear. Please click on the link to see the lovely beary designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I covered a piece of card randomly with red and yellow Pan Pastels and then brushed this lightly with a thin layer of white gesso. I then used a stencil with hearts, first using red Pan Pastel and then a thin smear of white gesso, gently wiping some of this so that the years became pink. I got the idea to use Pan Pastels and gesso in this way here. I printed out the digital image of Beary Dust Stamps 'ballerina bear' kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. I coloured this with spectrum noir pens. I added some small pink hearts on to the larger hearts dotting with liquid pearls gold, adding some also to the bear, the sentiment oval and the chipboard number 1 that had been coloured with a spectrum.

This is, of course, for a baby's first birthday.

My second card for CHNC challenge 216 features the lovely image 'Christmas mouse' kindly supplied by the Stamping Boutique as one of my sponsors this week. I coloured with the chameleon pens that arrived yesterday, adding glossy accents on the bauble and Art Institute fine glitter on the hat and here and there in the background. The background is a digital paper from Ooh-la-la Designs Everyday Occasions CD-rom (I changed the colour).  I've added bows, hearts and buttons.

Once again I've incorporate love, hearts and red.

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't really show the dome of glossy accents that has been put over the bauble.

For my first card I've included love, hearts and the colour red, featuring the lovely snowman family image that is part of Beccy Muir's snowman set (Beccy is one of this week's sponsors). I added the sentiment and mounted on to a piece of mirror card that had been embossed with one of the 8 x 8 embossing folders from the textures bundle that was delivered this week, not that the 'distressed' embossing has anything to do with Christmas, but I just wanted to use one of the textures folders. A piece of wired glittery ribbon around the card blank is pulled in with some red elastic and two glittery hearts added.
