PBSC - White on White

This weeks challenge:
WHITE on WHITE
"Now it's not as difficult as you think and after a little panic.... I'm sure your all going to love this one.... as we all did. We'd like to see your creations in WHITE.... WHITE papers, WHITE embellishments - the only colour we want to see is on your image."
Here's my card then :

Had a lot of fun with this! The swiss dots is the actual card. I also used the snowflake cuttlebug folder and bubbles which is what the greeting is matt and layered onto. The greeting was white as well but you couldn't see it so I coloured it in black :)
The image I have only used once before so thought I better use it! good excuse anyways

Whiff of Joy - Sketch

So then...... this is my entry for this weeks challenge.


A pretty quick card to be honest.
Henry had already been cut out and the tag had already been embossed :) so half the card was done! I used water colours to colour the image in. Didn't want to use my promarkers lol
To finish I put a big bow on the tag and cut out 2 holly leaves. The holly is actually little pearls.

A bit of a challenge for me as I dont usually use tags on my cards lol

"This week the challenge is to create something Bright and Zingy so dig out all your bright and zingy papers and embellies and a Magnolia image and get creative"

This is what I have come up with:

The colours haven't show up very well on the picture tho. I have used hot pink & lime green. The square behind the tag is vellum. I didn't want to cover up the backing paper too much! lol The rhinestones have been glued on indiviually as well! (yessss......... they did take a while!!) and The greeting has been heat embossed.
Thanks for popping over :)

"Our challenge this week is a colour combi challenge and it is one of my personal faves,
Black & White + 1
So excluding skin and hair, you must use black and white and you can choose one more colour to work with. "
I have opted to use black & white and my +1 is grey! The card is for a friend at work who is at Uni studying fashion design so I have made the card based on that :) Pretty plain and simple with a few details. I have used flat backed pearls and ribbon to add some more detail to the card.

ABC Challenge - E is for Embossing......

E is for Embossing!


This is also another of the christmas card order I have to do. I have used 2 embossing folders, the tree and swiss dots. The tree I love!! It's simple and yet effective at the same time. As you can see from the picture I've used little flat backed pearls to decorate the tree as well :)

Papertake Weekly Challenge - My favourite things


So this card combines alot of my favourite things.
I love to use gold and white on cards as i think that the colours compliment each other very well. The Image is "Penny Black - Constellations". No matter how many cards I make with this stamp, they are always different but elegant. Heat emmbossing is another favourite thing as well! I make a mess! :)
Brads...... I LOVE BRADS!!! they are the best thing ever!!
And last but not least, Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots folder. Since I have had my big shot, I've used this so much. It really is versatile.

Just a few of my favourite things ;)

Thanks for popping over to have a look.

I REALLY wanted to use my new House Mouse stamp as it was an absolute bargain! £3.55 incl p&p off Ebay...... I had already stamped the image and coloured it in. So that was half the job and saved some time. The paper is actually Christmas paper! lol It just seemed to fit really well with the image :)

Great sketch tho! Thanks for popping over :)

The colours aren't bang on for the Colour Create Challenge but they are as near as damn it! lol
With the image I used the back of my bookatrix board to get the circle and then used the scallop edge scirrors for the edge on the layer underneath. I did stamp the image first as well :) There isn't a greeting on the card yet as I don't know what The lady wnats on it yet lol

Thanks for popping over :)

Thanks for popping over :)

15/05/2009

Just Magnolia Challenge Card

So this is my creation:

A brilliant sketch this week. Really enjoyed making this card. Had loads of ideas as well :)
The papers are from the Papermania, Ivory/Cream set I think they are. Never thought of using them together before but I think the gold really sets it off. The flowers I got today from Cats Crafty Cabin along with the gold card. (She sells both in her shop). The sentiment I had free with a magazine. It's come in handy.
Thanks for popping over :)

14/05/2009

Have made these up......... I did them yesterday but was doing my mates blog....

Ballerina Bugs!!!!

Love these little bugs, there so cute! I say that tho and they are so fiddly. I will have 5 sets to make up in a bit as well. Put them on ebay and a person has bid on all 5 sets! :D
These ones have little glittery dresses on them and vellum wings.... although you can really see the wings! lol


Onto the next thing I was doing last night......

My mate Cat has just recently opened up a shop by her. She sells craft stuff and handmade cards. Cat has a blog already but decided that she would like one to run along side the shop business....... so this is what I came up with ..... Cats Crafty Cabin. This is the name of her shop also so I have used it as the blogs title as well. It's very much a work in progress at the moment. But if anyone has time to take a peek at her blog she would be much appreciated :)

Whiff Of Joy - Friendship Card

A very quick make from me as Mam wanted a card doing in 10 mins flat for her friend! I sooooooooooooo LOVE it when she does this to me!
Bit of a random colour scheme tbh but it's turned out okay. Probably could of gone onto a purple card instead of a green but hey ho :D
The image I coloured, cut round and then 3D'd to add a bit more depth.
The greeting has been stamped as well, dont have clue what make the stamp is without looking either! lol

12/05/2009

Mojo Monday 86



So this is my card for the Mojo Monday blog.
It's my cousin's birthday today and Mam asked me to make a card for her, well a Forever Friends one in particular lol.
The image is a sticker which I stuck down onto white card and cut round. Its a lot easier to raise when it's already been stuck down to card :)
The paper is out of the pack of decoupage sheets. I just didn't feel any of the papers went with the images so used it with another image.
Anyways, thanks for popping over :)

Friday Sketchers Challenge

Yes!! Sorry it's a Xmas card! :-s hehehe........
I was using my "Pip" stamp yesterday and remembered that I had a "Polly" stamp too but it was an Xmas one but hey ho....... might as well get a head start! lol
So this is my interpretation of the sketch :

"Polly" has been stamped onto the blue card as well. At her feet there is white glitter to look like snow/ice.
Thanks for popping over :)

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Card for a man or boy

I loooooooooooooooove this stamp!
I only brought it to make my Dad's Fathers Day Card as he's fisherman! LOL!!

So the Cupcake Craft Challenge is to make a card for a man or a boy:

“For my challenge I would like ‘a card for a man or boy’ – only because everyone dislikes making this type of card so much LOL! It’s so easy to make a card for a women or a girl as the embellishments at our disposal are vast but for those tricky men it’s not so simple. Definitely what I would call a challenge! I can’t wait to see your creations.”
Stamp is by DANDELION - FISHING.
Thanks for popping over :)

With St. Georges Day being today the challenge is to make something in red and white and this is what I came up with.
