I Love Promarkers #141 ~ Cute!

Morning! It's a 'CUTE' challenge this week over at I Love Promarkers :)
We are sponsored by a new sponsor - 2 Cute Ink - who are offering 3 digis from their online store.

I have used this cute cupcake kitty, printing the image quite large to be the main focus of my card. I have coloured the image with promarkers and prismas. The icing I have paper-pieced :)
The sentiment is Papermania and a doodled frame to finish!

Thanks for looking xx

Anything but a Card Christmas & Snowflakes....

Hi......I'm back from my hols to share some more Christmas makes I made recently for the demo at Papercrafts, Elgin :)
The 1st make is a cute gift card holder for Christmas.......just big enough to slot in a credit card size gift card which pops up when the holder is opened. It is held together with a belly band of cardstock which I have decorated with a spellbinder die from the Asian Accents set.
The gorgeous papers are not actually Christmas papers but the colours work great for Christmas.....they are Cosmo Cricket - Tea for Two.
I am entering it into Winter Wonderland's Anything but a Card challenge.

This card uses the same snowflake set I used for the blue/silver card a couple of blog posts down :)
A clean and simple card.......stamping the snowflakes in reds/browns and using the sentiment from the same Personal Impressions set too. Simply matted on red card to finish.
I am entering my card into Charisma Cardz #41 - Clean & simple challenge.

I still have some more cards to share so I will be back soon :)

Morning! It's 'Halloween' time today over at I Love Promarkers :)
We would love to see all your halloween themed cards, spooky or cute!
As you can see mine is more cute than spooky :) The image is by Stamp Fairy who are sponsoring the challenge this week with a $10 gift certificate to be won.

I have coloured the image with promarkers and prismas and the dotty paper is a halloween paper from many years ago. The sentiment is cut from a piece of paper from the same kit :)
I have doodled the frame and added buttons and fancy corners to finish.

Silver Snowflakes....

Hi! I'm here to share a card I made for a Christmas demo this weekend at Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin. Quite appropiate to be making and sharing cards on World Cardmaking day :)

This card uses a gorgeous snowflake stamp set from Personal Impressions......I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest to try this masking technique. I cut a template out to ink through with Distress Inks (tumbled glass and broken china) and overstamped the snowflakes with versamark and silver embossing powder.
Finished with tiny gems and a sentiment stamped in the same distress ink colour.

I am entering my card into the following challenges ~
Fab n Funky Challenges #141 - No Patterned Paper
Charisma Cardz #39 - Badda Bing (bling/shine)
Less is More #88 - Colour/Silver

Hope you all managed to fit in some crafting time this weekend :)

Penny Black Saturday October Challenge - Sketch...

Morning!! Time for a new challenge today at Penny Black Saturday :)
Seems ages since our last challenge!

We have a wonderful sketch to follow this month designed by the lovely Helen in the DT.

Great sketch is'nt it :) Thanks Helen x

I have used some new papers I bought recently with a prize win over at Sketch Saturday :)
I bought these lovely Cosmo Cricket papers and a Whimsy stamp from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
The paper pad is called 'Baby Jane' and it's full of lovely colours and small patterns.....perfect for card-making.
The PB stamp is a 'slapstick' one called 'Hello Dear' of my favourites :) Love these little mice. I have coloured the image as always with promarkers and prismas and used buttons and a wooden flower for embellishments. The fancy corners are a Whimsy die.

There are some wonderful prizes to win this month......check out the blog for all the details.

'Happy World Cardmaking Day' to you all......
