Simply Stunning!

When I saw the title of this week's challenge over at the One Stop Craft Challenge my initial thought was 'that's my worst nightmare'. I must admit that it is one of the hardest I have ever had to do, but I really did enjoy it.

Donna chose this week's theme as:

Simply Stunning

The idea is to keep your card really simple and to use no designer or backing papers.

Luckily I had these beautiful KanBan Vintage Adverts toppers in my DT kit this month, and to be honest, I love them so much that I can't stop using them! They really do suit a simple card.

For this card I layered the topper up onto plain red, white and black card. I lightly inked the edges of my card blank with red ink, embossed the With Love sentiment using the Cuttlebug 'With Love' border folder and inked over it with a Whispers pen. The black border is some velvet ribbon and the final touch is 1 red and 2 black gems at each corner of the topper.

Please pop over to the One Stop Challenge to see the simply stunning cards made by the other DT members.

Right, I'm off now to get the house ready for my granddaughter's 1st birthday party. I may be back later....as long as the little ones don't exhaust me too much!

Charisma Week 8 - Animals

It's week 8 at Charisma Cardz Challenge and Leanne has chosen the theme for this week. It is:

Animals

The colours on my card look a little dreary compared to what they are like in real life. That's because this photo was taken under electric light. I just haven't been anywhere near my house, my cards or camera when it has been daylight this week.

There is a great variety animal cards made by the DT, pop over to the challenge blog to see them all.

Ingredients:
Papers: Making Memories Simply Fabulous Collection - Meg. Lilac and green card.
Stamp: Penny Black - Sentiments. Coloured using Promarkers.
Sentiment: Made by sticking Anita's Outline Stickers onto plain white card, inking over the top and then removing the peel-offs.
Corners: Punched with Fiskars Lace corner punch
Flowers, Ribbons, Daisy trim from my stash. Butterfly from my DT pack.
Real stitching, distressed edges and lots of doodling.

A mad week and a card

Stop the world....I want to get off! Oh my! I'm having the most hectic week ever and it won't be over until Sunday. I love being busy, but even for me this week has been crazy. Tomorrow I have an interview at work - I don't think I'll get the position because I haven't been there very long but, hey, if an opportunity arrives you just have to grab it with both hands don't you? Thursday I'm having an early start and late finish because I have to go up to London with work (8.30 am start - yuck!). Friday I'm baking a birthday cake and cupcakes and generally tidying the house because on Saturday my granddaughter is 1 year old (and the party will be at my house). I'll be exhausted by Sunday. Thank goodness I have a few DT cards for challenges that I can schedule on my blog.

So, sorry if I haven't been around to your blog this week - I will make it up to you all as soon as I get a minute to breathe.

Right, enough waffle. Here's the card I made for Sketch Saturday. I've rotated the sketch by 90 degrees because I wanted to use this little mouse stamp. It has been sitting in my drawer for some time gathering dust., so I brushed it off and inked it up especially for this challenge. I've used a combination of ProMarkers and watercolour pencils to colour it in.

The close-up was to show that my cards are fairly 3d. It doesn't often show the different levels in a photo taken front on.

Ingredients:
Paper: Basic Grey Offbeat
Stamp: Penny Black Love Tail
Prima Flowers (Got Flowers and Part Deux),
Ribbons from local pound shop,
L-Em stamens punch,
A tiny woodware snowflake punch
A few spots of Mint Green Liquid Pearls
Sizzix Flower Parts #2 Set #1 (the blue swirly bits)
ProMarkers and Water colour pencils
Doodling, Inking and stitching .

Cute and Cuddly!


I had a fabulous time making this card. What can be better than beautiful soft colours, pretty embellishments and a cutie image to work with? This one is for the Colour Create challenge which has the following image for inspiration:
Awww - how cute is that Nellie? Well, you've probably guessed that the colours are Pink and Grey this week and the optional extra is 'Cute and Cuddly'.

My card centered around the image I was given in a RAK. I'm so sorry that I can't tell you who it is by and what its name is - but if you know I'd really appreciate you leaving me a comment with the info because it was such a joy to colour.

I seem to have gone back to my old style of "doing a bit of everything" on one card. Not a style I'd particularly recommend because some of my cards have ended up looking like a train wreck using this method. ;o) Anyhow, on this one there is stitching, doodling, inking, liquid pearls. I drew the line at distressing because I wanted it to keep it pretty.
Ingredients:
Papers: DCWV Wedding Prints Stack
Stamp: Unknown (sorry)
Flowers: A combination of Making Memories Hydrangea, Prima with Woodware amd L-Em stamens punched elements.
Ribbons, Daisy trim, brads, card candy, pin, liquid pearls and sentiment all from my stash.

The rest of the DT have really done some amazing work this week. I always feel so humbled when I see those talented girl's creations each week. Please pop over and take a look and we'd love to see an entry from you!

Oriental Screen

Okay, first of all ...... No I haven't made a card for myself. I have a friend with the same name as me, it can get a bit confusing when one of our DHs says our name when we're together - we never know which one of us they are speaking to! Anyway, and it's her birthday today, so we're all having a lovely, yummy Chinese meal tonight. How perfect that this week's challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenge has the theme:

Oriental

It is not often that I am lucky enough to be able to combine one of my DT cards with an occasion that I need to make a card for almost immediately. I thought I'd try something different again and this card was all based around the beautiful Kanban Serenity Vellum that I had in my stash. I thought it would be lovely to make an oriental screen with it. Of course, it being vellum, there was nowhere for a message from me so I added a couple of tags (they are not quite so bright IRL).

I really did struggle with this card. I made the black frame, attached the vellum, then sat back and thought...What on earth am I going to do now to embellish it? My house was a bomb site for a couple of days as ribbons, flowers and gems were scattered everywhere. I made tiny fans, I stamped water lilys and chrysanthemums but nothing looked right. I finally settled on the Chinese writing (printed from my PC and cut out) and decided it didn't need much else, so metal butterflies and a few peel-offs (not used those in a while) are all I added as an extra embellishment.

I took this picture to try to show what it looks like with light shining through the vellum. This really doesn't show it in all its glory - I think it looks so pretty with light behind it but that is so hard to capture on camera. I think that it would look lovely folded into a square (like a tall box) with a tea light in the middle - as long as someone was watching it so that it wasn't a fire hazard.

Ingredients:
Black Card
Kanban Serenity Vellum
'With Love' Sentiment from
Kanban Serenity Toppers Sheet Metal Butterflies
Silver/Grey eyelets
Tags created from Lilac glitter card and green card
Corner peel-offs

Cuddles and Hugs - Charisma Challenge 7

It's time for a good old cuddle and hug over at the Charisma Cardz Challenge this week. Carly has put up an enormous prize for the challenge - Over £80 worth of goodies! It's very rare to see a prize of that value on a challenge blog, isn't it? Make sure you get an entry in to be in with a chance of winning.

Before I get onto my DT card for the challenge, I have to tell you all that I am no longer the guest designer for Charisma Cardz. However, I have been offered a permanent position on the Charisma DT, which I have accepted. Thanks Carly. So I'm now a fully-fledged member of the Charisma DT. Yippee!

Right, on to the card for Carly's challenge this week. I remembered that one of my blogging friends had sent me a RAK with the ideal image for 'cuddles and hugs' (you know who you are hun - I'd hate you to get in trouble by naming you, but I thank you so much). I love this image and really wish I could get my hands on this stamp. The stripy paper was also sent in another RAK.


This was my first attempt at using some ProMarkers to colour an image. I think I need a few more shades and a bit more practice, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I really enjoyed using them.

I thought I'd show the inside, for a change, just to prove that I'm still keeping my promise to decorate them, even though I don't always take a picture of the insides.


Items Used:
Stamps: Penny Black 'Simply Friends Rain or Shine' , Papermania 'Love and Hugs, Creative Expressions Swirl
Papers: Pearlised cream paper, Basic Grey and a RAK paper
Promarker shades: Blue Pearl, Cornflower, Blossom, Pastel Pink, Vanilla, Saffron, Pastel Green
Watercolour pencils used for the hair, flesh and grey on the pinafore, White Acrylic used for highlights
Gold Liquid Pearls
Blue Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Gems, Ribbon and flowers from my stash.

Colour Create - Week 3

Well, you crafty lot! What a wonderful response there was to last week's peach and aqua challenge over at Colour Create. I must admit, they may not be the most obvious colours to use, and some of you found them hard but, well, you really surprised yourselves, didn't you? Thanks to everyone that took that leap out of their comfort zone to participate in the challenge. You were all amazing.

This week, we have some more traditional colours to sweep away those winter blues (sorry about the pun) and make us think of summer. This week you're challenged to make a card with:

Red, White, and Blue.

and the optional extra is to include:

Holidays or Travel.

This is the picture we have been given to take our inspiration from.



I've changed style again this week, opting for a quote. I think this is the first ever quote card I have made. Isn't that sentiment great? I've kept the layout very simple and the embellishment to a minimum so that all the impact is on the quote.

Ingredients:
Papers: Basic grey and K&Co, Red mirror card and white paper.
Stamp: Swirl that was free in Cardmaking & Papercraft in Feb (used this to create the background paper)
Embellishments: red bows, white satin ribbon, white pearls and red cotton all from my stash.
Sentiment: Printed on my PC and inked up with Tim Holtz China Blue Distress Ink.

Once again the design team have made some outstanding creations - they will surely make you want to go and book a summer holiday! Please pop over to look at them, they are certainly worth the visit. I hope you'll find time to join in the challenge too.

One Stop Craft Challenge 16

Happy Valentines Day to you all! I don't suppose my hubby will send me a Valentines card (awww shame I hear you all say) but he's just not that type of guy, and we've been married so long that I know what he is like and I'm not disappointed now. Anyway, I enjoyed making the cards for my girls to give to their partners/ boyfriends and I know I will enjoy visiting all your blogs to see the cards you received.

So, on to the 16th challenge for One Stop Card Crafts. It was my turn this week to set the challenge and I decided to give you all this sketch.


As I love lots of layers I'm afraid my sketch reflects this. Hope you don't find it too complicated. I really enjoyed working with it.

The prize this week is to be our Guest Designer for 2 weeks. So please come and join in the challenge.

This is the card I made.

Ingredients:
Kanban Vintage Toppers
Vine paper
Black Card
Cream Textured card
Dovecraft Charcoal prints, Flower trim, Prima flowers, L-em Ash Branch Punch and square brads all from my stash

Marabou Magic

At last! A card I absolutely adore.

It has been so long since I have been happy with a card that I've made. Those of you that know me well will know how hard I am on myself all the time. Well, aren't we all? But for once I am really happy. Okay, it hasn't got fancy swirls and doodling and stitching and it was quick to make - but this has just reminded me that 'less is more'.

I made this with my February DT pack from One Stop Card Crafts. The full instructions will be on the One Stop Crafts blog sometime soon (possibly today) with direct links to the items you need to make the card.

I have also provided the instructions for the inside of the card on that blog. I've left the inside without a sentiment (because I didn't want to spoil the simplicity of the card). Half a white section has been left for the sender to write on.
I hope you like it as much as I do. It looks even better in real life.

Colour Create Challenge 2

It has been a wonderful week. I've seen so many blogs by incredibly talented people all thanks to everyone that entered the Colour Create challenge. It was wonderful to visit you all to see the fantastic items you had made.

Anyway, on to Challenge Number 2. Here is the photo of this week's colours.



Peach and Aqua

What a fabulous combination of colours? I didn't really have any aqua paper so mine is as close as I could get.

The added (optional) twist this week is DIY flowers, which means not using any pre made or bought flowers. There are lots of ways to make your own flowers and there are some great suggestions of how to do this on the challenge blog.

Well, I thought I'd try to make one of those beautiful ribbon blossoms that I've seen on people's cards. Ha! Ha! Not as easy to make as I thought. The final result looked like my cat had got into my ribbons and played with them all night long! I now know it was probably not a good idea to use satin ribbon - I'm sure organza is much better. So, for me, it was back to the drawing board.

The flowers have been made by curling die-cuts and then layering 2 punched flowers, also curled into the middle. I finished them off with a stamens punch to which I added the tiniest glass beads ever! Honestly, each bead is like a grain of sand. I also used these beads around the edge of the sentiment and the image.

Ingredients:

Stamps, Whiff of Joy and Penny Black. Papers: Pink Petticoat Papaya, the embossed one is Indian craft paper by Goldline. Punches. Fiscars for the border, Woodware for the flowers and Leone Em for the stamens. Cuttlebug Stylised Flowers embossing folder. Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China, Everything else was from my stash.

Please come and join the fun at Colour Create - you'll love what the other DT members have created this week.

Liquid Pearl Crazy

Do you ever get some new crafty item .......and then 'do it to death'? I got some liquid pearls before Christmas and hadn't really had the chance to use them until recently. I think I went a little mad with them on this card!

The One Stop Craft Challenge this week has been set by Paula and she's challenged us with


Circles (or dots)


I loved making my first circle card this week, so I thought I would do another one for this challenge. It didn't quite turn out the way I had it pictured in my head, but it is growing on me.



Ingredients:

Stamp: Kodomo Butterflies stamp set, silver mirror card, lilac glitter card, lilac textured paper, mint spotty paper is something I designed myself, mint green and lavender liquid pearls, Debbi Moore sentiment stamp, Classic large scallop Nesties.

Ribbon, skeleton leaf and flowers are from my stash.

Whiff of Joy No 17


Hurray! I have so missed using my Whiff of Joy stamps and at last I had time to indulge and make a card for this week's Whiff of Joy challenge. The lovely Donalda has created an amazing sketch to use. I had to make a card for my Dad as it is his birthday in a couple of weeks so I wondered if I could use the layout, complete with scallop edge and places for flowers and make a male card. I'm really pleased with the result. I swapped the flowers for large brads that, to me , look a bit like cuff links.

The black embossed paper is my first use of Black Magic papers. I embossed with the swirls folder and then sanded the embossing to reveal the colour underneath. It's actually a very pale blue and even in real life against the silver and black it looks a light grey on the card. I love it though, the sanded bits feel like velvet.

The black 'paper' was something that came in my daughter's laptop to keep the screen scratch free. I snaffled it as soon as I saw it because I loved the texture.

Although it doesn#t show up too well, I added stickles above the champagne glass.

Ingredients: Whiff of Joy Champagne Charlie, Papers: Black Magic, Dovecraft Charcoal prints. Everything else is from my stash.

Okay, I'm off to do some blog-hopping and commenting now; it has been hard to keep up with everyone this week so please forgive me and I'll be around to visit you all soon.

Charisma Cardz - Week 5

Joanne has created a 3-2-1 recipe for this week's challenge at Charisma Cardz. I had such fun working to a recipe. I think it may be the first time I've done one of those.

Of course, me being me, took a liberty with the 2 flowers. I tried hard to make it just 2 flowers, but the card didn't look right to me - so I turned them into flower combos and then I felt much happier. I even got to use some metal flower embellishments that have been sitting in my drawer since before Christmas.

I went with a simple layout and just a few additional gems. The ribbon is just a small piece over 1 corner of the image.

I'm not sure what happened but the pale pink edging on my daisy went fluorescent when I added stickles - look!


Ingredients:
K & Co papers, Penny Black 'Squeeze till I Squeak' stamp. Prima flowers, MIC metal flowers, Anita's everyday ribbon, clear teardrop gems, Tim Holtz distress ink and water colour pencils.

The winner of this week's challenge gets a prize as usual, and on top of that they can pick one of the DT's cards to receive as well.

Papertake - Hearts and Flowers

I'm on a roll this week! It must be having a tidy craft area that is allowing me to concentrate better. Here's my entry for the Papertake Weekly Challenge of Hearts and flowers challenge.

I wanted to do something less 'fussy', with different colours (for me) and I wanted a spotty flower too. I don't have any spotty flowers so I just took a whispers pen and dotted it over a fabric flower - I think it has turned out okay.

Rather than show the inside of this card I've gone for a close-up. Hopefully you'll be able to see the layers of the mat, the hearts and the different levels on the flower too.Ingredients:
Papermania Special Effects Cream embossed paper. Basic Grey Ambrosia paper. Black card and yellow paper. Anita's everyday spotted ribbon, Fiskars border punch, Sizzix Hearts (paisley), lemon raffia, L-Em stamens punch, Prima flowers, and black pen for doodling.

A Spoon full of sugar No 37

I'm feeling so pleased with myself this week because I've had time to make 2 challenge cards. I wonder if that is because I've tidied my crafty area up so that I can actually see the desk now? I'm sure that all the mess was distracting me over the past week.


Here is my card for the Spoonfull of sugar challenge No 37. It's a sketch this week by their guest designer Tina. I loved your sketch Tina.

I set myself the task of distressing the card because I think it would have been too 'pretty' in the mint green, baby blue and coral colours. I didn't want it too distressed; just a bit of inking and scraped edges. However, after the distressing I decided it needed pretty-ing up again so I added some liquid pearl to give a nice sheen and touchy feely element. Oh, you might just be able to see the gloss I added to the heart balloons on the image.

Although I don't always show the insides of my cards I am still being a good girl and decorating them all.




Ingredients:

K & Co papers, Hearts Away Penny Black Stamp, See D's sentiment stamp, Lace, Mint Green Liquid Pearls, Anita's Gloss, Sizzix Hearts, Paisley die.

Flower Basket - Charisma DT Project

As promised yesterday, here is the item that I've created for Carly's challenge. Each month she will set her Charisma Cardz design team a challenge - and as I'm guest designer this month I got to join in. The brief was:

Make anything you like! I'd like to see lots of flowers!!!


Well - lots of flowers she has got!

This is made from a plastic vending machine cup and half a polystyrene egg. The idea came to me when I visited Karen's blog. She has the most amazing cupcake on there - you must go see it. After I'd picked my jaw up off the floor, I thought about how I could use the idea and adding my own twist, turn it into a basket of flowers.


I did all the weaving on the base myself using that bargain suede fly curtain I'd bought (just to use the suede on cards). I hadn't done any weaving since schooldays but it was amazing how quickly it all came back to me.
Ingredients:
Plastic cup trimmed down to match the size of the egg
Half a polystyrene egg, layer it onto a circle of card and create a hinge with another piece of card half sandwiched between the egg and the circle. Attach the other half of the hinge to the plastic cup.
A kings ransom in flowers, layer up the flowers, push a paper flower on wire into the middle, twist the wire behind the layered flower so that they don't slide down the stalks, and poke the wire into the polystyrene egg.
Leone Em leaf punches (ash branch and rock fern used)
Suede strips woven around the outside of the cup.
Paper - placed around the inside of the cup. I didn't do this bit very well, next time I may use tissue, crepe, or some other thin paper (I don't have any of that at the moment). It might look better with a ring of card to form a lip over the edge.
Sweeties of your choice

Penny Black Challenge 34

I can't believe I actually had time to make a challenge card today. Boy does that feel good! I've made this one for the Penny Black Challenge number 34 - a circle card.

I thought I would do a metallic coloured card for a change. This one is all in golds. I created the base card with my largest nestie, making sure I caught 2 of the scallops on the fold at the top so that the nestie wouldn't cut through them. The edges are inked with a gold Calligraphy pen.

I've left room on the front and on the inside for a sentiment. I haven't decided what occasion to use this card for - but no doubt one of my daughters will tell me they 'need' this card to, and let me know what sentiment to add to it.Ingredients: Papermania Silk Screened Paper Gold Ornate Metallic, Penny Black Kickin' stamp, Prima flowers, Gold Liquid Pearls, Gold Ribbon, Gold border peel-offs and Sakura 5.0mm Gold Line Calligrapher pen.
I'll be back tomorrow with a special project I created for the challenge that Carly (Charisma Cardz) set for her design team. Here's a sneaky peek ........

Colour Create Challenge 1

Woo Hoo! The colour create challenge is now live. The excitement has been so overwhelming that I didn't sleep properly last night, so I ended up oversleeping this morning!

Well, the idea of this challenge is all about giving you a palette of colours to work from. So this photograph of cushions are the pallet for the first challenge. Brown, Cerise and Lime green (or brown, pink and green if that is easier with the items in your stash)

There is also an optional extra element to add to your item if you want to. This week it is Butterflies. I've included some butterflies on my card.

I'm still having camera troubles, so the brown looks very black in some of my photos - sorry.

I used a tutorial on splitcoast stampers to produce a circle flip up book. You can find the tutorial here.










Ingredients:
Papers: Blossom and Butterflies and Basic Grey
Cerise Celebrate Organza Ribbon
Prima Flowers
Dovecraft Gems
Stick on pearls
Stamps: Kodomo butterflies and Anita's sentiment.












Hope you like it. Please pop over to the challenge blog - the other designers have made some amazing creations. There really is some fabulous inspiration over there.
Hope to see an entry from you all.
Sharon xx
