Peek time finally

I'm back
I know it's been a while since I promised to share this, but better late than never.
This is from my first batch of cards, which I have had to whip up early and quickly, with the down-sizing started at my old job (yes, I've already been down-sized) I needed to get them done as soon as.
This is the green version, there are 4 differnt backers all of which match the snowmans scarf.
I shall display the full range soon (just got to shrink the photo)
Still can't get the pdf file to work, although it could just be my's getting on.....5 yrs old...which in laptop years is about

Hint, close your eyes and die cut

I'm sure the title of this post will be made clear in a moment....
So a 3 challenge card
 Hence the strange post title...hint(of colour), close your eyes(the stamped image on my card) and die cut....
and now without further ado.....
I rotated the sketch, for my hint of colour I distressed the edges of my die-cut shapes with blushing bride inkpad. To give the white more depth I decided to emboss it with my brand new M-Bossabilities EG-002 [put a few of these on my list for Santa ;) ].
This is one of my favourite LOTV stamps it's called "Close your Eyes"
and as you can see, she is.

I used ProMarkers to colour the image and went over the sentiment stamp with the Stampin Write blushing bride pen as it was a little too pale on it's own.
The lace was sitting in my stash.

Time for bed me thinks
Back soon

Peachy Butterflies

Good evening,
it has been a rather interesting day. Had a lovely (sinful) piece of chocolate fudge cake at Tracey's and we gossiped over coffee. So nice to get out and meet up with friends.

But, the reason we are all really here.....Crafting.....
I have made a card for the CR84FN colour challenge
I decided to go super simply with this one, and instead of inkpads I used Promarkers to ink my stamps.
A little bit of bakers twine for interest and a tiny bit of bling to make an impact.
  • Stamps - Butterfly (free from craftstamper) , Flower in background (free from craftstamper) , Sentiment (WMS)
  • ProMarkers - Peach and Lavender
I shall return soon with a sneak peek of my first batch of christmas cards. Yes, I said first batch. Got to hurry and get them done before the site shuts as I don't have all my workmates adresses.

Back soon

Autumnal Birthday

Good morning all,
the sun is shining, my youngest is at big school and I've been laid off due to the words of teenagers everywhere....WHATEVER!!!
But seriously it's no biggy, not yet at least! I have been building up my card stock for months knowing that the site would eventually be date arrived earlier than expected!!
It does mean I get to craft and share a lot more with all you lovely people   : )
So without further ado.....A Three Challenge Card!!!!
 Now, rotate the sketch 90 degree clockwise and swap the flowers for butterflies, gather every tiny piece of scrap autumn coloured card and a small leaf-shaped die and you get:
Ta Dah!
A very autumnal birthday card...
  • Card used - SU chocalte chip, more mustard, cajun craze, old olive daffodil delight. (other than the card itself all the other embellishments were made with scraps I've been hoarding)
  • Stamps - Butterflies (free from craft stamper mag), Grow (a gift from my SU demonstrator), With Love (waltzing mouse celtic heritage set)
  • Die - Maianne LR0117
The large stamped image was created by first applying more mustard ink at one end, old olive at the other, then very carefully adding the cajun craze down the middle.

I think the best thing about this card is it is great for a man or a woman.

Another day another card

Hello again,
well my little loft craft space is almost organised again...not quite, but almost :)
But of course that doesn't mean I couldn't find time for a couple of challenges......
This is one of my favourite stamps, bargain bucket job. I stamped it several times, then cut it out removing different sections to slowly bulid it up. Distressed some cream card for the under-layer of the rose.
I also decorated the inside:
I tried to keep the colours on the inside softer and lighter than the outer image.

Back to organising for now
