Glamowlrous girl


This is ‘Winnie Shopping’ but personally I think,especially with that beaded bag and bow in her feathers,she looks a bit more glam than that.I certainly don’t look like that when I go to Sainsburys.She’s a clear stamp available here.

I made this card for the Willow Sketchie Challenge.And here’s the sketch designed by DT member Heidi:

This card was made with my SIL in mind.She LOVES owls!!Every shelf and wallspace in her living room,bar a few piccies of the kids,is covered in owls.

For this challenge I’ve mirrored the sketch.Winnie has been coloured with Promarkers and her eyes have been made Optrex bright with gel pen.Probably a good thing as she has been stamped onto cream card!All papers are Making Memories.Every layer has had Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink swiped around the edges.The tab was created by using an inverted corner punch on the top corners.The greeting is from Hero Arts Cupcakes clear stamp set.I dug out a green staple from my stash to attach the pink grosgrain ribbon.After much deliberation, having first tried pink and green,I opted for plain coloured pearls.I bought a lovely selection from Bunny Zoe’s Crafts.

Five pilfering sheep


Hmmm …. O.K…. so that’s not really a line from The Twelve Days of Christmas but it would be pretty apt for this little fella!I’m not entirely sure how I came across this stamp on eBay.I certainly wasn’t looking for Shaun the Sheep and I don’t think I was looking for Christmas stamps.I suppose it was just one of those random search results that crops up occasionally.But I knew as soon as I saw him he had to be mine!!I love animation so much,especially claymation and Wallace and Gromit is the finest example.

These cards are created by taking an A6 card blank and folding the front in half and using some kind of embellishment to prop it up.The papers are from a 6×6 DCWV Christmas pad.Have to admit I’ve had these a couple of years as I moved onto mostly making cards in 5×7 size and found them too small.I also found that if I wanted to use more than one on a card the colours were a little mismatched.So it seems I’ve now discovered the perfect use for them.The card used on these is all from last years purchases too.As are all the embellishments and ribbons.The circles and scalloped circles are all cut with Nestabilities and the corners are a Sizzlits die.Part of the sentiment which I created on the computer has had a ‘bite’ taken out of it  with a scallop oval punch.The image is called “Get off me pudding” and is coloured with Promarkers.

All together now …… He’s Shaun the Sheep,He’s Shaun the Sheep.

Behind again


I can’t believe how far behind with everything.There just seems to be so much going on familywise at the moment.

I actually made this card on Saturday to enter into the Willow Sketchie Challenge on the Let’s Get Stamping group at Craftbubble.

The sketch and twist,to use some distressing,were set by GDT Kathy.

This is the sketch:


I have to admit this card was made in rather a hurry for my son’s friend who was having a party that very morning!

Having already decided which stamp and the colour scheme I hurridly looked for a suitable free download backing paper which I found here.I chose a piece of this lovely zig zag card and some black card that has a ridged texture next.I coloured the image,from Personal Impressions Cute Character set 4,with Promarkers and highlighted the skull and crossbones on the shirt with white gel pen.The greeting is by CraziBoutStamps.All corners have had Lips Pattern corner punch used on them and all edges on the layers have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool.The patterned paper,image and greeting have had Black Soot Distress ink sponged around the edges.I don’t think I did too good a job of this as time was of the essence but I suppose it adds to the grungey feel of the card.A giant red brad and a black ribbon from my stash provide the final elements.
