Crafts & Me Challenge - Pearls & Swirls

Well, I think i've been quite clever for this challenge! :)

So the card is being entered into the :

Crafts & Me Challenge of "Pearls & Swirls"

I have used pearls & swirls but...... the card I have used is "pearl"-ised! ;) 

The image is a digi image and it is such a versatile image to use. This, as you can see is for my mate's 21st off us girls from work :)

Christening Presents & Cards

 So, I went shopping for a Christening present, and what did I find.......... diddly squat!!

So after much deliberation, I made my own! and here the both are... 

Maisey's Candle, Picture Frame & Card

Ellie's Candle, Picrure Frame & Card

Instead of making them in the same colour, I have done them different. 
I've used the same image which is from Lili of the Valley apart from on Ellie's picture frame. The images have been coloured with promarkers, this also applies for the candle. Use thicker tissue paper tho when making a candle. The colours stick/show up a lot better :)

PaperPlay Challenge.... Shaped Card

This is my entry into PaperPlay's challenge this week:

"Shaped Card"


So I've made a Stepper Card using Miss Anya stamps from The Greeting Farm. I took inspiration from a colour challenge blog, but the pink I had wasn't quite right so I didn't enter into the challenge, but saying that, I do like the colours together. Added a bit of ribbon and some gems too, but haven't added a greeting yet as it can then be personalised.

Magnolia Christmas Card for the Hairdressers...

 Bit hard making a christmas card for a hairdressers when then is loads of them! "/ but had a light bulb idea....

Hunting for my Magnolia Stamps at 11pm was not fun! but I found them anyway and came up with this card :)


Wanted to keep the card quite clean and simple with keeping to using one colour plus white, well, it's more than one colour! haha..... It is kind of girly but boyish at the same time. 

Here's a close-up view of Tilda & Edwin...

Papertake Weekly.... "First Christmas"

This weeks challenge on Papertake Weekly is:

"First Christmas."

"It’s our  first Christmas challenge of the year here at Papertake so it’s self explanatory really. You can make a Christmas card or you can make a First Christmas card – tis up to you and either will be fine."

To follow on the theme of "First" I have made a christmas card but I have made it with my new Lili of the Valley Stamp "Moonlight Wishes", so it's a "first christmas" card using this image... and I must say.... I love it! 

"Moonlight Wishes"

The window is acetate which has been stitched on using my New Sewing Machine (first time of using it) with gems, snowflakes, flowers and swirls added. The pink paper that is on the inside of the card is actually pearlised too. (it was a baragin!) The snowflakes are a die cut and have been cut out of white glitter card. 

Here's a few more pictures of the details:

Details on card

Passion for promarkers - "Kraft +1 other colour"

Distressed Whiff of Joy

So ProMarkers challenge is : "Kraft +1 other colour" 

I did actually make this card a few days ago to be put onto my website. As you will notice, there is no greeting on this card as it can then be personalised. Also the cirlce is blank to add an age if needed. 

The card stock used was coredinations. I must admit.... I do LOVE this card, rich colours yet you can distress it too. And scallop edge cards are just fab! This one is 8x8. 

Added a few eyelets and stars for extra details.

Kenny K & Cupcake....

8x8 Scallop Edge Card
 So went to the NEC yesterday for the Hobbycraft show. There was some good stash out there and some bargains.... only stayed for a few hours though as it was getting too busy.

What I did manage to get was this lovely paper! 12x12 scrapbook paper - 25 sheets for £5... bargain! and just the ticket for a challenge for this week. 


This card is being entered into 2 challenges :

1. Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - "Celebration Time"
2. Cupcake Craft - "Textalicious"



Close up of flowers and spray
 Paper works perfectly for the Cupcake Challenge! They are different papers even tho they do have text on them. The black paper has been mounted onto kraft card with the orange paper being mounted onto black and kraft card. I used my new sewing machine too to add some more detail. 

The Kenny K image is called : "Lady Victoria". 
Tried to use the same colour scheme as the card on the image. I did have to add a bit of ivory though to make it a bit lighter.

Added detail with flowers, leaves and spray in the bottom corner.

Soooo love this image....

 Downloaded this image last night, soon as it had downloaded.. it was printed and coloured in! I must say though, the Kenny K images are so versatile!

You will notice that there is no greeting on this card as I have made it so it can be personalised for either a lad or a lass.

The image used is called "Vikki Lee Vicious" and the paper is by Bo Bunny.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes (Plus A Bit Of Bling If You Want"
  2. Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - "Glitter and Bling"
The glitter/bling is on the lime green bits of her corest and on the green bit of the guitar. Oh and the 2 gems on the little flaps in the top right corner.....








Heres's a close up of the image so you can see the glitter ...
