Truly Scrumptious challenge 31

I have followed the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious for this card what a fab sketch and the optional extra was to have the tag shape move. I have used Basic Grey lemonade papers for this card along with some pink card from my stash. All the edges have been distressed with my scissors and then glittered with stickles.
The image is a Miss Anya one from The Greeting Farm which has been coloured with promarkers with a bit of added stickles to her hair band.
The flowers are punched with my woodware punch from the same basic grey paper again the edges are stickled and a papermania glitter dot for the centre.

I have made the tag so it pulls out again the paper is basic grey and has been distressed in the same way. The sentiment is a rub on and the gems are from ebay.

The backing papers are distressing vines from Funky Fairys in grey and pink. The dark grey cardstock is from papermania. All the edges have been distressed by running my scissors down them, I have then added some stickles to the edges.

The flowers, vines and butterflies have been coloured using pearlesent gel pens with a few extra gems added to the centre of some of the flowers. The sentiment is a stamp from Personal Impressions. The flower is a Prima one with a flower button from my local haberdashery shop as the centre.

Strawberries & Good News

I haven't updated my blog for a couple of days as have been busy making cards for my first DT project for Creative Craft World so thought I would add some pics of the things I made for Crafty Ribbons this month you can see them their on their blog (much better photos than mine). To make this I followed the tutorial on this blog here. I used a white gel pen to put the white spots on the strawberries and the ribbon is from Crafty ribbons.

For this card I have used the swiss dots folder to emboss the red card, the green gingham paper is from pink petticoat. The strawberry is a free clipart coloured with promarkers with black gems added. The sentiment is printed on the computer. Ribbon again from Crafty Ribbons.

Change of colour for this last card, I have wraped pieces of the ribbon around strips of card and then stuck them to the card blank and used some stickles to fill the gaps. Gingham paper again from Pink Petticoat.

I would just like to add on the end of this post a huge thankyou to Janette from Stamping Dragon Designs for picking me as part of her design team I can't wait to start working with her fab designs.

This months swaps

This is the card I recieved from Marg for this month card swap on Crafty Place, isn't it gorgeous you can just see in the picture but each flower on the bp has a glossy centre and the fairy's wings have been glittered as has around the sentiment.

This is the stash that I recieved from Glittermum, you can just see at the bottom some chipboard shapes I've never used chipboard before so will be interesting to have a play with these. Hidden at the bottom of the picture are some little gem butterflies I had just run out of these so they will come in very handy

Here's the gorgeous papers that she sent me the photo really doesn't do them any justice.

This is the card I recieved for last months swap from Popkins isn't it fab, you can just see in the photobit the image is all glittered beautifully as is the edge of the sentiment and inside the card is another flower.
Thankyou for all my fab swaps I love doing this every month.

Aimee's Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging for Aimee last night from the beer mats that the lovely Wendy from MSE sent me.

I covered the mats in paper from MME Penny Lane stack added a bit more glitter to the edges, then I cut a scalloped circle from some pink card and added some stickles around the edge. The letters I did on the computer and then cut them out and stuck them to some more MME paper and cut them out again. The flowers are prima e line ones coloured with promarkers, stamens are punched from some scrap paper and small pink gem added to the centre. I have then punched holes and tied each mat together with pink satin ribbon.
The picture on the top mat is a digi stamp that I won from Digistamp Boutique and was one I had to get as she is called Aimee.

 I coloured this little mouse which was a freebie from Bugaboo with promarkers and then added flock to the flower and the little heart, for his tail I used a piece of white rafia coloured black  Not sure where the backing paper was from as it was in my scraps box.The Ribbon has again been coloured with promarkers and the gems were from my stash.
The sentiment is a sticky one which I have rubbed red foil over.
I sent this little card with the atc. The blue card is embossed with crafts too butterfly embossing folder, the white mat is cut with nellie snellen dies and the butterfly is a 3d sticker from papermania.

Moving Along With The Times Challenge 42

I made this card for this months card swap on Crafty Place the theme was lilac & green, now I know that Marg has recieved it I can post it. I followed the sketch on this weeks Moving Along With The Times.
 The image was this weeks freebie from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers. I added some stickles to her wings along with a few gems. I have used gems for the flowers at the bottom of the image.
I embossed a wavy line onto the mat under the picture with my score board. the papers are all from Pink Petticoat Gingham collection and Grannies wallpaper collection. The border was cut with friskers threading water punch with a couple of card candy added.

Another Tilda card

This is another one of the tilda images that Sarah stamped for me.I started out with the intention of making a pink card didn't quite turnout the way I had imagined it would when I coloured in the image but I like the end result. The paper is from MME Penny Lane stack which I bought yesterday whilst shopping for seed potatoes lol, they are gorgeous papers all glittery. The silver card is bazill and the lime green is DCWV .
 I have coloured her with promarkers again and used some Anita's clear gloss on her boots and umbrella to make them shiny, on her boots I added a little sparkly pink chalk first so that the gloss is slightly glittery.
The ribbon is white organza again coloured with a promarker and the flowers are white Prima  e line coloured. The centres of the flowers are stamens punched from the backing paper with a pink gem. The sentiment is a personal impressions stamps I love these stamps as they are just the right size to add to small shapes like the circle.

Girly card

I've made this card for the new challenge Something for the girls on Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge. Tilda was stamped for me by my friend Sarah thanks I have coloured her with promarkers and used some Anita's 3d gloss on her shoes. The papers are Basic Grey Kioshi.
The white flowers are Prima E line ones and the roses are from hobbycraft.
The ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop and was coloured with promarkers to match can't remember where I got the pin from they have been sat in my drawer waiting for me to use.The sentiment is stamped onto the middle section of my nellie snellen die
Choccy has asked how I colour the ribbon so here goes I lay the ribbon onto a scrap piece of card and the just gently run the wide nib of the promarker over the ribbon and then leave for a couple of minutes just to let the ink dry this way the card soaks up most of the excess ink rather than you fingers hth.

For this card I have followed the sketch at Sketch and Stash challenge you also had to use some  new, never used or neglected stash so I have used my new Lili of the Valley stamp Thomas Big Bunch of Flowers. I have coloured him with promarkers and some stickles added to the flowers. The papers are Basic Grey kioshi. I wanted to mount the papers onto some purple card but didn't have any the right shade (will have to rectify that)so coloured some white card with a suitable shade promarker. The purple panel has been run through the cuttlebug with the daisy folder and mounted on some shimmery black brazill. The ribbon is from my stash it was white but again I coloured it with a promarker. The flowers are some more that I got in hobbycraft this time I have added some stickles to the edges of the petals, the purple twirly bits is some white florist wire again coloured with promarkers.

Rock A Bye Jiggy

Stamping Dragon Designs are having a DT call with a difference, the difference being you have to use the image they chose. Well what a fabby image it was The lovely Rock A  Bye Jiggy. Now I have only recently found these fab images and have fallen in love with these cute little dragons, as my name suggests I love all dragons but my favourite type are cute little fellows like these.

I have coloured the image with promarkers and glittered their wings with stickles. I have paper pieced the drapes on the cot with some spotty pink paper. I have cut the mount with my nesties and embossed it with the heart embossing folder. Tied some pink organza ribbon around one layer into a little bow to the side of the image.  The border along the gingham paper is punched with a woodware punch.
The flowers are punched with a woodware flower punch out of pink card and pink gingham card I have curled the edges and used a white pearl for the centres. The leaves are punched with a woodware grass punchout of green bazill card .
The sentiment I have printed on the computer and again cut with nesties, added a couple of little flowers and a tiny white button as embellishment.
Just though I would add this photo which show the card at a slight angle as it shows off all the layers  on this card.
The papers are all from Pink Petticoat.
