Cheerful stamp pad challenge 84 week 2


This is my design card for week 2 of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 84: use 3 designer papers. Please click here to see this week's inspiration from the rest of the team - and here to enter the challenge. The winner this time will be invited to be a guest designer.

My 5 x 7 card is based on the sketch given for the current Nightshift stamping challenge, using three offcuts of Hunkydory patterned card which were just right for the sketch. I stamped the DeNami glamour dress with stazon black - I used stazon as the card is shiny ... and then realised I wouldn't be able to use any alcohol pens, so I lightly coloured the dress with a colouring pencil and added some tiny gems for the necklace. I found other bits and pieces in my stash that were just right for the sketch, although I did add another Hobbycraft flower.

'Chill day'


'Chill day' is the name of the super Penny Black stamp that I've used for my second card for CHNC challenge 173: if you want to get ahead, get a hat! - use a hat on your Christmas creation.

I coloured with spectrum noir pens and added glue with a quickie glue pen to the furry parts of Santa's outfit, sprinkling with Art Institute glitter, adding the foiled ho ho hos and matting on to red mirror card. Background paper is Papermania and the triangular pieces are from my Christmas offcuts box.

I used the sketch for Sunday sketch and stamp 202:

It's time for CHNC challenge 173: if you want to get ahead ... get a hat! - use a hat on your Christmas creation.

For my first card I used the 'cat in hat' digital image kindly supplied by Eureka Stamps (one of today's sponsors), colouring with spectrum noirs, tearing around a perspex oval template to give a torn distressed edge. I found some foiled 'ho ho ho' pieces to add and used quickie glue pen with Art Institute glitter on the white parts of Santa's hat. The background paper was from a magazine and the piece across the middle from my Christmas scraps box.

Suzy Bee's bloom' challenge 25: frame it


It's time for Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 15: frame it. Please click on the challenge link to see the lovely creations of the rest of the team and join in with you entries.

For  my design card I used Bugaboo 'frame it - one day at a time', kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge.

I coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint and framed the image with one of the Spellbinder's marvellous squares dies. I printed out a slightly bigger version of the image and cut out clocks to stick top and bottom to give a bit more variety. The backgrounds were created with embossing folders run through my cuttlebug (although I have an eBosser and love it, it's sometimes quick to grab the cuttlebug for smaller items).

Completely Christmas challenge 8: sketch


This is the sketch we were given for Completely Christmas challenge 8 - you will see from my card that I turned it to the left.


Please click on the challenge link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team - and I hope you will be able to join in the challenge.

Completely Christmas challenge 8 is being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads and I've used their 'Christmas carols' image, colouring with spectrum noir pens. All card and papers used are from  my Christmas offcuts box. I didn't have a sentiment that matched, so I used a light green one and coloured it with one of he pens. I finished off with some Craftwork cards gingham candi.

More sparklers for sympathy


I quite often get asked to make sympathy cards and sometimes am asked to use the Penny Black sparklers stamp, which I've done on this card - inking with memento grape jelly (a lovely purple colour) and I shadow stamped just the seed heads again at the top. I stamped the Hobbycraft sentiment stamp on a piece of card and distressed the edges with dusty concord distress ink to tone with the distressing I did around the edge of the card. The ready made card blank front was mounted on to a textured lilac card base.

Simply with sympathy


I never think that sympathy cards should be fussy - I like to make them quite simply. This was made with a card blank that already had a feint design as a background on to which I stamped one of my all time favourite Penny Black stamps, sparklers, inking with memento rich cocoa. (Regular visitors to my blog will have seen many cards with this stamp) I distressed the edges of the card with brown corduroy distress ink and added the stamped sentiment.

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 84: 3 different patterned papers


This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 84: use 3 different papers. Please click on the link to see the other lovely designs by the team. The winner for this fortnight will be our guest designer for two weeks.

I based my card on the sketch given for Freshly made sketches 131:

I used three different design papers from my offcuts box (always trying to use some up) - I also matted the embossed panel on to a piece of patterned card, but that's so minimal that I haven't counted that in my three papers! I inked the Papermania Easter stamp with stazon cactus green and added a few daises - there are little embossed flowers on the panel, but I thought it would be good to have daisies to match the ones added to the sentiment stamp.

I'm also showing this as another example on my own Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April challenge - if you haven't discovered this yet, please click on the link and join in ... you just need to use some of your hoarded patterned papers to cover your card or other creation.

Christmas lights


'Christmas lights' is the theme that Asha chose for this fortnight's Christmas Card Club challenge. I made a simple card using a digi image, Bugaboo Stamps Christmas cupcake - lights, coloured digitally in Microsoft Paint.  I dotted the lights etc with quickie glue and poured on some Art Institute glitter. his was matted on to gold mirror card and then on to an offcut of Hunkydory card with an old offcut of Kanban across the bottom with Paper Cellar glittered gold strips.

The Glory of Christmas 31: music


This is my design card for this fortnight's Glory of Christmas 'music' challenge. Please click on the link to see the creations of the rest of the team and I hope you will be able to join in the challenge.

The background is an offcut originally created with an Embossalicious folder with pearlescent card that was llightly brushed with dusty concord distress ink. The three circle images are some left over from an old Kanban kit bought ages ago and the sentiment circle is a left over from a Hunkydory kit - as is the strip across the bottom (which wasn't long enough to go right across the card, but was OK because it could be tucked both ends under the image circles).

CHNC 172: make it square .... or include a square on your creation


This is my design card for today's CHNC challenge 172: make it square ... or include a square on your creation.

I've used a square card blank matted with papers from Echo Park's Winter Wishes by Michelle Coleman. The snowman digital image is Paper Pretties warm winter wishes (one of the sponsors of CHNC challenge 172), coloured with spectrum noir pens, cut out with a nestie die and edged on the inverted scallops with a spectrum noir. The big bold sentiment is from Beccy's Place digital 'snowman set'.

Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 24


Today sees the start of Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 24 - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team, using images from our sponsor for this week, Lacy Sunshine and, hopefully, join in the challenge - it's 'anything goes' which is always popular.

For my design card I used Lacy Sunshine's 'Jack and Lily' image, coloured with spectrum noir pens and cut out with a scalloped nestie, brushing lightly with distress ink.. Papers are all from my offcuts box. The butterflies and vellum die cuts with silver foiled leaves are from a Dawn Bibby kit bought long, long ago (and I still have a load of similar items from the days when I used to avidly watch QVC and got hooked into buying things that I 'needed' ... so much so that they are still in boxes!). I used small remnants of pink gingham ribbon for the corners. The sentiment circle from Craftwork Cards is silver foiled, although it looks dark in the photo.

The card was based on this sketch for Sunday sketch & stamp 201:

Commissioned Easter card


I was asked to make an Easter card for a toddler granddaughter, so I made an easel, stamping with one of my new Penny Black stamps 'juggling eggs' inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. I cut the image using a scalloped nestie die brushing very lightly with fired bick distress ink. I used papers, felt eggs, chipboard egg and Happy Easter ribbon that have been in my Easter box since last year , generating the sentiment on computer.



Folds flat for postage:


I continued the ribbon on the back with the addition of a sparkly egg.
