Moving Along With the Times - Challenge 79


The new challenge on the Moving Along With the Times Challenge Blog is 'birthday and circles' so I've made a circular easel card using one of the new stamps from Little Claire Designs called Georgia. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and then layered it on to a pink scalloped mat and then on to the base card which I've covered with paper from The English Paper Company. I've added a Craftwork Cards greeting (on a small scalloped mat) and some paper flowers coloured with Promarkers to match my image.

C is for Camellia


The current challenge on the Anything Goes Challenge Blog is to make a card which relates to the letter 'C'. This is a birthday card I made yesterday using one of my favourite Little Claire Designs floral stamps of camellias, coloured with Promarkers. I've kept it very simple using a scalloped mat underneath, some black peel off dots and peel off greeting.

I Love Promarkers Challenge 46


I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! I'm making the most of my time off work this week to get some card making done, starting with birthday cards for January. The image I've used on this card is from C&C Designs - I've coloured it with Promarkers. The paper is from Craft Creations and I've coloured the little paper flowers to match my main image. I'd like to enter this card is the current challenge on I Love Promarkers which is 'anything goes'.

Moving Along With the Times Challenge Blog


Here's another birthday card, this time made using a stamp from Cuddly Buddly. I've used a floral embossing folder for the background on pink card and then two pieces of ribbon across it. I've die cut the image into a circle and added a black paper scallop behind it. The greeting and the little dots are peel offs. I'm entering this card in the current challenge on Moving Along With the Times which is 'anything goes (no Christmas cards allowed'.

Charisma Cardz - Challenge 50


The theme on Charisma Cardz this week is 'New Year Celebrations' and here is my card for the challenge. My image is from Magnolia and I've coloured with with Promarkers and then die cut it into a circle. I've used green card with one of my Cuttlebug folders for one side of the background and some Basic Grey paper for the other side.

Let it Snow ....


This card is made with another Little Claire Designs stamp called 'Will He Find Us?' which I've had for just over a year - I know I had it last Christmas! It's good for making cards because there isn't much colouring to do!! I've die cut it into a circle and then covered my base card in Craft Creations paper and added some silver line peel offs. I'm entering this in three challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - one for the kids
Oldie But Goodie - You're a Star

Non-Traditional Christmas Card


The image on this card is from Wild Rose Studio - and I've coloured it with Promarkers and then die cut it into an oval and layered it onto a slightly bigger black oval. The paper is left over from last year - can't remember where it's from - and I've added a greeting from Craftwork Cards and some black dots. I'm entering this in two challenges which have 'non-traditional Christmas' as their themes this week - Corrosive Challenge and Cupcake Craft Challenge.

We Three Cats ....


Here's another Christmas card - this one is made using the 'We Three Cats' stamp from Little Claire Designs. The cats have been coloured with Promarkers and then layered onto red and green card with little red peel off dots at each corner of the image. My backing paper is from DCWV and the greeting is also from Little Claire Designs. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - Christmas
Crafty Purple Frog - Christmas

Keep It Simple - Season's Greetings


This card is made with one of the gorgeous Pink Gem stamps - so easy to colour and really cute. I've used a silver gel pen on the star and Promarkers for the rest of the image. The backing card is from my stash - not sure which company it's from and I've also used silver paper and a silver "Season's Greetings" message from Craftwork Cards.

Crafty Purple Frog - Challenge 4


I found the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Blog when I was blog browsing last week and spotted that their current challenge is to make an easel card - probably my favourite style of card at the moment! I've made my card using a Lili of the Valley image and papers from Craft Creations. I've added some red star gems and a greeting from Craftwork Cards.

A Little Bird Told Me .....


I've made this card using another stamp from Little Claire Designs - I've paper pieced the her hat and coat and used the same paper (from a Kars pad) on the main part of the card. I've added a paper flower coloured with my poppy Promarker and some nail head gems. I'm entering this card in the current challenge at Totally Papercrafts which is paper piecing.

Last Minute Christmas


Yes, I'm still making Christmas cards! These three are made using Urban Belles toppers from Kanban and paper from Doodlebug. I'm entering them in the the Allsorts challenge where the theme is very appropriately 'last minute Christmas'.

Star of Wonder


This card has been made with a stamp called Star of Wonder from Little Claire Designs. It's been coloured with Promarkers and then layered onto silver paper and a snowflake blue paper from Craft Creations. I've added a peel off greeting and some peel off dots. I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Ellephantastic Challenges - wish upon a star and Christmas/winter
Papertake Weekly - red and green must not be seen
A Spoonful of Sugar - Christmas cards

Crafty Creations - Challenge 97


This is one of my quick 'last minute' cards made with a decoupage topper from Kanban - I think they're really cute! I've added some gold paper round the topper image, paper from Dovecraft and some peel off dots. The sentiment was included on the sheet with the topper. I'm entering the card in the current challenge at Crafty Creations which is 'a beary project'.

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 142


And this is my card for this week's challenge on Cute Card Thursday where the theme is 'floral frenzy'. This card is made using a stamp which is part of the 'All Set Up for Christmas' set which is available here. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and then layered onto a scalloped circle. My background papers are from Dovecraft and I've added some gold line peel offs along the edges of the middle strip of paper. I've finished it with some red peel off dots.

Moving Along With the Times - Challenge 76


The theme this week on the Moving Along With the Times blog is 'lots of spots'. My card has been made using one of the new stamps from Little Claire Designs which is available here - it's called "I'll Be There for You". I've coloured my design with Promarkers and cut a circular easel card as my base. The paper is from Doodlebug and the little flower has been coloured with the Poppy Promarker to match the main image.

Christmas Teddy


I've used a Lili of the Valley image for this card - the first time I've used this one from the sheet I bought and I think he's gorgeous! The paper I've used is from DCWV and I've also used some red ribbon and a greeting from Craftwork Cards. I'm entering this in two challenges:
Teddy Stampers - Christmas teddies
Stamp Something - Christmas colours

Oldie But Goodie - Challenge 7


The current challenge on Oldie But Goodie is winter birthdays. My stamp on this card is from Whiff of Joy and is at least a year old as I know I had it last Christmas too! I've used unusual colours for me but I picked out this paper and wanted to fit the image with it. The paper is from Basic Grey and I've added a greeting from Craftwork Cards and some paper flowers coloured to coordinate with my image.

By the Cute and Girly - December Challenge


This month's challenge on By the Cute and Girly is children so I thought I'd use one of my Elzybells stamps called 'Santa's Little Helpers' - a really little cutie! I've used paper from DCWV from last Christmas (I have a huge Christmas paper stash!), some red ribbon and some nail head gems.

Cute Card Thursday - The Blues


The theme this week on Cute Card Thursday is "the blues" - cards made with a blue theme. For my card I've used an image from Nutcrafters called 'Snowfall'. It's been coloured with Promarkers and then layered onto a navy card scalloped oval and on to blue spotty paper. The paper is left over from last Christmas and I'm not sure where it came from! I've added a strip of card down one side, some white peel offs and a blue snowflake brad.

Still Having Lots of Fun - Part 1


This card was made using two of the tag die cuts from Little Claire Designs and one of the images from the new 'Lots of Fun' set. The background paper is from Craft Creations and I've added some punched dots and some pale blue ribbon to finish it off.

Still Having Lots of Fun - Part 2


Here's another card made with the second elephant stamp from 'Lots of Fun' set. The background on this is blue gingham paper from Craft Creations and I've used some ribbon and white paper flowers to finish it off. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Lots of Fun - Part 1


The new December club stamps are now available here from Little Claire Designs. There are two cute elephant stamps together with some sentiments and the set is called 'Lots of Fun'. This is my first card made with the set using a die cut easel card and a peel off sentiment also from Little Claire Designs. I've decoupaged the elephant on this one to give some extra dimension and added a couple of little paper flowers to the base of the card.

Lots of Fun - Part 2


Here's my second card made with the new 'Lots of Fun' stamp set from Little Claire Designs. I've used the oval Amazing Frames dies available here to cut the base for this card and then using Craft Creations paper and some navy card behind my stamped image. The sentiment is included in the set and I've die cut a smaller oval round this to use as the 'stopper' on the base of my card.
