A Bear-y Merry Christmas

Hi all,
I'm back this week with my DT card for the challenge over at 
where the challenge is always Anything Goes

This week, I've made a Christmas card using

I used the plaid paper as I wanted to create a card which would 
be suitable for a man. It looks so cosy too!
The image was coloured with promarkers & the star & baubles on the tree 
were highlighted using my Sakura Glaze pens.

For the layout, I followed the sketch from  Create a Smile

and, as I wanted to keep it simple I didn't add many embellishments,
just a few little bits of card candi!
I used a font called Mountains Of Christmas to create the sentiment

I hope you can play along in the challenge, which is always anything goes.

Love Cats 1st Anniversary Card

Hi everyone,
Here I am with my card for the QKR Stampede Challenge DT this week!
Some of you may have had a sneak preview as this posted by accident earlier 
than it should have! Naughty blogger! 

http://qkrstampede.blogspot.com/

Last year we moved house and we were
lucky enough to be invited us to a wedding by our new neighbours.
We had the most amazing time & it was great getting to know everyone.
Of course, we couldn't let the happy couples 
1st Wedding Anniversary 
go by without sending our wishes, so I made this little card!

The image used is 
The sentiment is

I coloured the image with my promarkers, die cut it then added some 
Distress Oxide while it was still in the die.
The papers I've used have been in my stash for a long time 
but I have been very sparing with them.
Don't you just hate it when the things that you love run out!

To create the fishtails, I used the corner of a square punch.
Hope you like my little card & I hope you can play along with us this week!

I hope you can play along in the challenge, which is always anything goes.

I was invited to join the papercraft design team for Craft Creations!

This one was made using black cardstock, the Feather Stamp & Sentiment
which were embossed with white EP& a little bit of lace from my stash!
Simple but effective I reckon


The flamingo card was stamped using Distress Oxides, 
then coloured with a promarker or two!
I die cut the image & matted & layered using some circle dies. 
The background & sentiment were stamped with distress oxides too.
A few sticky pearls from my stash & we're done!


This unicorn was stamped & embossed in black then coloured with
my sparkly Sakura pens! I do like to dig them out from time to time!
The matting & layering was done using plain white CS & blue glitter card!
I punched the corners for a bit of interesting detail


This unicorn was stamped with Distress Ink then coloured with a mix
of promarkers & flexmarkers.
I die cut the image then used Distress Inks to create the background.
I matted & layered some Kraft CS die cuts to create interest

Play A Saw

Good morning all, here I am again with another little card.
I had a lot of fun putting this one together.

 

This one was made for my hubby on our wedding anniversary!


The reason behind this odd card is that we went to a party a while back & someone 
actually did play a saw! Yep, the kind you get from hardware stores!
It was incredible! 
We were both stunned. I'd never have believed what a wonderful a 
tune you could produce from a basic saw!


The watch/clock embossed panel was wiped over with gilding wax.
The clippings are from a cider bottle label! Hubby does love a cider!

The lace & buttons are from my stash.
The little sentiment tags are LOTV
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my card!

Edited to add:- I was contacted via twitter by a lady who makes the most
beautiful music playing a saw. 
If you have a minute, you can watch her here

I’d like to enter this card in the current challenge at
Daring Cardmakers - A Moment In Time

Lavender & Lace

Hi everyone, happy Friday to you!
Is everyone off for the Bank Holiday weekend?
Here I am with the last of my Lavender Lister samples made from the papercrafting kit.


I love using all the little extra bits off of a sheet to make cards.
For this one used the little butons popped up on foam pads.
The sentiment is from one of the sheets too.
I also used one of the patterned paperw with some ric rac binding, a little lace,
and a few little sticky back gems from my stash!



I absolutely love the colours on this one. 
The image would be great for so many different occassions too. 
I added a little die-cut sentiment, the buttons are rescued from a cardigan 
& the lace is from my stash!
Thanks again for stopping by!
