New home


   Another QKR Stampede challenge begins today with the usual theme of anything goes.
   This card uses the QKR Stampede digi called birdhouse. I coloured it using Promarkers and after cutting it out using a Tattered Lace notched square die matted it onto black card which I offset on to paper printed using Card Creations Plus CD ROM Brush Strokes in the Wild which I matted and layered onto black and white card. The birds were cut from black card using dies from Tattered Lace's hidden valley's over the peaks embellishment set. The sentiment was created using peel offs.

   Crafty Friends - new beginnings
   Creative Inspirations - something new
   Digi Choosday - anything goes

Birthday elephant



   This elephant image which I coloured using Promarkers is from Dragon Lairs Design. I matted and layered it onto pink, blue and white card leaving enough space between the pink and blue layered tp add a strip of black peel off.

New baby



   A few days ago I made a card for a baby boy, so to keep the balance here is a card for a baby girl.
   The stamp used for this card is from Lili of the Valley and is called cosy pram. I coloured it using Promarkers and after matting it onto pink card attached lace around the edge. I then matted it onto card from Hunkydory which in turn had been matted onto more of the pink card and white card. The two little embellishments were printed using Tattered Lace's Charisma bunny CD ROM and then fussy cut. The sentiment was cut from pink card and offset onto the sentiment cut from white card using a die from Tattered Lace's wedding words set.

Louise bling



   The theme of the first 2018 Crafty Cardmakers challenge is blings the thing.
   I have used a Scruffy Little Cat stamp from the Louise set and coloured the majority of it using Spectrum Noir pens. I also made use of an old makeup set I have and used blusher on the cheeks, eye shadow on the eyelids and lipstick on the lips and lipstick. I added clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to the lipstick holder, bottle top and puff, gems to the centre of all the flowers and used Liquid Pearls for the spots on the bottle and the beads.
   I then matted and layered the design onto glitter card, mirri and white card. Using a Tattered Lace die I cut the sentiment from glitter card.

Happy baking


   This image coloured using Promarkers was printed using the Daisy and Friends CD ROM, a disc which I bought several years ago. I matted and layered it onto biscuit coloured card, red core'dinations cardstock and white card. The embellishments were cut from white card using dies from Tattered Lace's Her Apron set, coloured using Promarkers and slightly shaped before attaching them to the card using glue gel. The sentiment is a black peel off.
