A Castle


A quick card for you today I have used this gorgeous digi stamp A Scottish Castle from Delicious Doodles which I coloured with my promarkers. The paper is from Fancy Pants swagger pad ( I'm afraid your going to be seeing lots more of this pad as I have had a ton of male cards to make and as it was sat on my desk I have just kept on using it plus I love the colours). I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and for a change am blogging it in time to enter it!

I edges it with stickles and the added some die cut snowflake and tiny pearl spots. I added a sentiment on the side which I printed on the computer and then die cut.

Morning time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy and this week we want to see texture in you projects. We have one of my favourite sponsors this week
They kindly gave the DT some images to use and I picked this one called Flower Shelf I have used my promarkers to colour it adding glossy accents to the vases, stickles on the flowers, some small purple gems and a sakura stardust pen. I used a daisy embossing folder to add texture  to my background. I tied a piece of ribbon around the card which I have coloured with my pens and added a small butterfly charm. The sentiment is a rub on.

Totally Gorjuss - manly


Well I've been a bad DT member ( due to being so ill before christmas and only just catching up now) I haven't taken part in many of the challenges over at Totally Gorjuss since they asked me to be on the DT. This card is late (only a day I'm getting more organised) as I forgot to take a photo of it in time to go on the DT blog but thought I would post it here and link up to them.
So this weeks challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Manly a theme that was not very popular on the DT, I quite like making male cards so think I must be odd!! Our sponsor this week is 
I have used this fab image from Digi Stamp Boutique called Golf Alf whcih I coloured with promarkers. the papers are from a paper cellar pad which I've teamed with kraft card. I added a little tag of the patterned paper held together with an eyelet as embellishment on the top of the image. The sentiment is stamped in cocoa memento straight on to the DP.

Mum Card

 
 Something a little bit different from me today not a promarker in sight!! I can remember seeing this style of card on a blog a long time ago but have no idea what it would be called. I have cut a panel out of a standard 6 x 6 card blank and stuck the letters over the gap. I have used papers from MME Cut Paste Flair pad teamed with some black card I love how the soft colours really stand out against the black. I used the word art function in word to create the letters and numbers printing them onto normal card which I then cut out and stuck onto my patterned paper, you need to use quite thick card to give the card front some strength. I have put stickles all around the edges of the letters and numbers to finish them off. I used my fiskers scalloped lace border punch for the bottom edge.

 
This gorgeous flower has been cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die from some of the pink ombre paper in the pad I love the way this has allowed me to cut the flowers all from the same sheet but with the differing shades. I have used a Basic Grey Candy Button to the centre of the flower and gone round all the edges with stardust stickles.
 

Here's a view of the card slightly open, you can just about see another sheet of that gorgeous ombre paper this time in an aqua green shade.

3 Favourite Embellishments at Incy Wincy


 
Well good morning and a Happy Year if there is still anyone out there I back after a very long break feeling much better thankfully and raring to go. Today's post is for Incy Wincy where our challenge is to use your 3 favourite embellishments we have 2 fantastic sponsors this week Digital Delights and QKR Stampede whose image I have used.
I've kept my card quite simple today so the fab image shines through, I haven't coloured the image at all just printed it straight onto a textured cream paper, the paper has a slight blue fleck to it. The papers are from MME Lost & Found Oliver pad and the sentiment is a new stamp I bought from Stamping All Day who have a fab selection of sentiment stamps all individual so you don't have to buy a whole set just for the one you wanted and there customer service is great my stamps arrived within 2 days even though it was between Christmas & New Year. For my 3 embellishments I've used tiny brads, ribbon and eyelets.
