One Stitch at a Time - Challenge 23


I made this card for my parents' wedding anniversary this past weekend -it's a bit different for me because there's no stamping involved!
I've used black and white decoupage which has feint silver lines in it - hard to pick up on the photo but they look much better ' in the real'. I've layered the design up using black and silver pearl paper and added a peel off greeting on the base of the easel as the 'stopper'.
The theme for challenge 23 on One Stitch at a Time is black and white plus one other colour so I'm entering this card.

Christmas in July!


This card is for two challenges:
Anya Ink - Christmas in July
Anyone for Anya - Be Dazzled
The image is of course from The Greetings Farm and I've used Stickles on the hem of her coat and muffler. I've also added little clear gems to the centres of some of the snowflakes on the background paper. I've finished the card with a greeting from Craftwork Cards.

A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge 6


Here's my entry for Challenge 6 on A Gem of a Challenge which was a sketch challenge.
My image is from Pink Gem and my background papers from My Minds Eye. I've used some paper flowers (also from the Pink Gem site) which I've coloured with Promarkers and some Card Candy and a greeting, both from Craftwork Cards, to finish the design.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 121 - Get a Head Start!


The challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday is to get a head start on making your Christmas cards!
I've made a die cut card for a change using the Bambino cutting die from Little Claire Designs. He's cut from Bazzill cardstock and I've stuck black peel off dots on the back of each die cut to give him black markings.
I've layered the white panel onto green Bazzill card and then onto tartan paper and green Bazzill again and added a Little Claire Designs peel off greeting and some green Nailhead stick on gems.

Dottie the Dalmation


This card was made using "Dottie's Slipper" from Little Claire Designs - I die cut the image using the largest cutting die from their Squirly Frame #2 set and then layered it on to pink and black cardstock. The image was coloured with Promarkers.
The paper I've used is from Craft Creations and I've added some punched flowers, peel off dots and some punched dots to finish off the card.
I'm entering the card into three challenges:
Moving Along With the Times - challenge #55 which is a sketch plus an animal theme
Passion for Promarkers - week 60 - animals
Pollycraft - challenge #52 - bold and bright

Corrosive Challenge #72


This is my entry for the current sketch challenge on The Corrosive Challenge Blog using a floral design from Aspects of Design (The Stampman). I've Cuttlebugged the panel at the side of the card and layered it all with blue and navy card.
The strip along the front of the base was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and I've added a greeting stamped from a set by Personal Impressions.

Lili of the Valley - Challenge 57


This card is for the current sketch challenge on the Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog using one of their own stamped images. The papers are from My Mind's Eye (again!) coloured with Promarkers and I've added a greeting from Craftwork Cards.

Just Cute Bears - Challenge 25


This is my take on the current sketch challenge at the Just Cute Bears Challenge Blog using a Lili of the Valley stamped image. I've coloured the bear and flower with Promarkers and then layered them using papers from My Mind's Eye and some pink cardstock. I've finished the card with some peel off dots and some punched dots.

Pink Pyjamas


The image on this card is from Little Claire Designs and I've layered it with paper from My Mind's Eye and pink cardstock in two different shades. I've added some punched flowers and dots and white peel off words.
I'm entering this in two challenges:
One Stop Craft Challenge - challenge 88 'monochromatic'
Moving Along With the Times - I've followed the sketch for the card.

Pink, Black and White


Two challenge blogs have 'pink, black and white' as their theme at the moment so here's my take on the colour combination. The image is from The Greetings Farm 'Dressed Up Anya' set and she's been coloured with Promarkers. I've die cut the image and layered it with a pink scallop and another oval in black. The strip on the left of the card was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the detail added with black line and dot peel offs. The flowers are punched and the greeting from Craftwork Cards. The links are:
Anyone for Anya - colour combo

A Little Distressed ......


I'm referring to the card here, not me!!
The image I've used on this card is Maria from The Greeting Farm Role Call set and she's been coloured with Promarkers. The background was made by running some Coredinations Whitewash Card through my Cuttlebug with a floral embossing folder and then sanding it to bring through the pink colour. I've also distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. The flowers were coloured with Promarkers and the Vintage Photo Ink and I've added some K&Co pearls to the flower centres and down the brown card on the left.
I'm entering this for four challenges:
Quixotic Challenge - challenge 31 'Pretty Pearls'
I Love Promarkers - challenge 22 'Distressing'
One Stop Craft Challenge - challenge 87 'Distressing'
Anyone for Anya - 'Anything Goes'

Just Cute Bears Challenge #24


And this is my entry for the current decoupage challenge on Just Cute Bears - I just had to use one of the designs from Forever Friends for this one!
The pink papers are from the decoupage pack and I've added some beige pearl paper, punched flowers and some little pink gems.

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 120

This is my card for the current Cute Card Thursday challenge which is 'School's Out for Summer' - I've chosen a card with a holiday and seaside theme.

The stamps I've used are all part of the Beach Huts set from Little Claire Designs - I've coloured them with Promarkers and then layered the images onto dark brown card except for the sign which I've cut out. The backing paper is from My Mind's Eye.

Corrosive Challenge Blog - Challenge #71


This is my entry for Challenge 71 on the Corrosive Challenge Blog where the theme is Christmas.
I've used a stamp from Little Claire Designs (one of my favourites because there isn't much colouring to do on it!), some navy card and backing paper from Bella Press. The circular greeting is from Craftwork Cards and I've added some punched dots and scalloped circles to finish the design off. It doesn't show up very well on the photo but I've also used Glossy Accents over the igloo, baubles, snow and star.

In the Summertime .....


This is one of my favourite Anya images and this card is for three challenges.
The patterned paper is from DCWV and the plain card from Dovecraft - I've just added some punched flowers, punched dots and a peel off greeting.
I'm entering it into the following:
Quixotic Challenge - challenge 30 which is a sketch
Nutshells - challenge 19 'summertime fun'
Pollycraft - challenge 50 'pinkalicious'

Sugar Nellie Cheerleader - Two Challenges


This card is for two challenges and is also a swap card on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to so it's a multi-purpose one!
The image is from Sugar Nellie and the backing paper (again!) from the Dovecraft Piece of Cake collection. At this rate I'm going to have to buy another pack!!
I'm entering this in the current challenge on I Love Promarkers which is to include stripes on your card and also for the current pink and brown challenge on One Stop Craft Challenge.

The Office - First Card


This card was made with another new stamp set from Little Claire Designs called 'The Office' - you can find the stamps here and also see my cards on their blog here.
The backing on this just plain card in two shades of brown. The image was coloured with Promarkers and I cut around three sides of the shed door with my craft knife so it 'opens'.

The Office - Second Card


This is the second card made with 'The Office' and for this one I cut a triangle from the front panel of the card by cutting on a diagonal line. I coloured the image with Promarkers, die cut it into an oval and then die cut the next size of oval in black.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye and I've added black peel off lines and black dots to emphasise the shape together with a peel off greeting.

The Craft Barn Shaped Card Competition

And here's the final one for today! This is a card I made this afternoon using July's club stamp from Little Claire Designs and I'm entering it in The Craft Barn shaped cards competition.

The card itself was made using a scalloped oval Nestabilities die and I then stamped the lily image, coloured it with Promarkers and layered it on the top of the card. The sentiment 'stopper' was stamped onto a smaller die cut oval to complete the card.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 119 - Let's Get Fruity!

Here's my card for the latest Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Let's Get Fruity'. The image I've used is from the Greetings Farm 'Roll Call' plate and this little cutie is called Jade.

The backing paper is from Die Cuts With a View with strawberries to fit in with the theme and I've used my Martha Stewart punch to create the strip across the middle of the card.

The Further Adventures of Dottie - Part 1


Here's the first of two cards made with another Dottie stamp called 'Amongst the Flowers'. Once again the stamp is from Little Claire Designs and you can find it here and also see my cards on their blog here together with some of my other cards.
The base card for this one was made using a scalloped Nestabilities die and I've added some paper flowers and a peel off as well as a Nailhead gem to the tag on Dottie's collar.

The Further Adventures of Dottie - Part 2!


And another one featuring Dottie the Dalmation - once again I've coloured the image on this card with Promarkers and added some Craft Creations gingham paper plus layered flowers coloured with Promarkers.
