Purple and green Manga Girl

At Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge a colour challenge had been set.There was a picture to use for your inspiration:

I used a Sugar Nellie Manga Girl stamp and coloured her with Promarkers and gave her some white gel pen hightlights.I then cut her out using a Scalloped Oval Nestabilities die and a technique I’d not tried before to get her legs to dangle off the edge.The papers are from Making Memories and the card is Papermania Textured.I cut some Circle Nestabilities shapes and a Sizzix flower.The edges have been distressed.I would like to point out that the card and the ribbon and dress show more blue in the photo but,as they say,IRL it is more of a match to the papers.

Three Little Maids

Over at Passion for ProMarkers  this weeks challenge is the theme  ‘Girls,Girls,Girls’.So I decided to take it literally.

These are the pens I used:

I made a waterslide card featuring  Sharon Armstrong’s Oriental Delight download from Willow Designs.I found the instructions for making the waterslide to fit a 5 x 7 card here .Apart from ProMarkers I used white gel pen to add highlights to the hair.The ovals are cut from Nestabilities.The patterned paper is My Minds Eye and was a free gift with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.All card is Papermania Textured and I used a Lip Pattern punch on the corners.I attached some Prima flowers with brads which also hold the bar of the slider part in place.I  punched a hole and fixed the eyelet with my Crop-o-Dile,threaded length of ribbon through to act as a pull  for the moving part.

Here are some more pictures showing the rest of the toppers:

That Spring feeling

DT member Lauren of Let’s Get Stamping at Craftbubble set the theme of  ‘Roll on Spring’,mainly because everyone had had enough of the icy,dreary,dismal weather.This is the sketch to work from:

The colours are perhaps a little too bright but I’ve wanted to let Willow take a stroll along this toadstool lined path for ages.The image,Picking Flowers from Willow Designs,has been coloured with Promarkers.The papers are K & Co  and mounted onto Papermania Textured Card.I’ve used a Lip pattern punch on all corners.I’ve taken a few liberties with the elements to allow for the sun,cut from an Inverted Circle Nestabilities die,to rise and shine above Willow.I tied the flower button onto the deep turquoise one with some of   that ribbon they sew into clothes to stop them falling of the hanger.

Whilst I had my stash strewn around the room I decided to make a second card:

The image from the Basic Grey Wisteria Dragonfly set has been stamped in a mixture of Lu Lu Lavendar and Grape Jelly Memento inks and went over the top of it with a clear Copic Spica pen.The inks have also been applied around the edge  of the Scalloped Oval  Nestabilities die cut.Once again the papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.The centre strip has been embossed with the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and lightly sanded.I’ve used E K Success Medium Corner Rounder and Woodware Inverted Corner punches.I also created the tab using them and stamped the sentimentfrom the set onto it,inked the edges and attached it with a couple of brads. 

This is also my entry for the Lavendar Challenge at E.C.P.Fingers crossed it’s  purpley enough!

Beautiful music

The theme set at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge was ‘Musical’.Anything music related.Image,papers or embellishments.

I don’t have any music themed stamps so I used this free download music sheet from Craft Stamper magazine’s website.I crumpled it up,ripped the edges and sponged Tea Dye Distress Ink over it.The image is from a set of four Art Nouveau ladies I bought from an eBay seller.She has been coloured with Promarkers.To give an aged appearance I have distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz tool and used the same ink to discolour the white card.Both pieces are matted onto Papermania Textured Card which have also had the same distress treatment.The background paper is K & Co and has been layered onto some more Textured card which have had a Seagull corner punch used on them.I wrapped and twisted some ribbon around the music sheet and tied a bow,adding a key as a cheeky reference to music.The sentiment is from Hero Arts Anytime Messages clear set.The corners have been adorned with pearls.

Blue and white china

The challenge over at Stamp Something was blue and white.

Eeeek!I don’t know why I always panic when it comes to these type of challenges.Is it because amongst my copious amounts of paper I never have anything suitable?Or maybe it’s because when I normally make cards I like to fling my entire stash around the bedroom and sort it out from there?

I kept it quite simple with this one.An easel card using a Sugar Nellie stamp.She’s been coloured with Promarkers.It doesn’t show but I used a clear glaze pen over the teapot,cup and even the stream of tea.The edges have been sponged with Weathered Wood Distress ink.Pretty K & Co paper,a couple of punched borders,some fab grosgrain ribbon and layered Prima flowers with a brad in the centre.The sentiment from Personal Impressions has also been coloured with Promarkers with glaze pen over the hearts and the same ink applied around the edges.I’ve also distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz tool.

It’s about time…

…this little cutie saw ink again.Like so many of my stamps I buy them because I love them and never really make full use of them.

I’ve made this to enter in the C.R.A.F.T. sketch challenge:

I’ve coloured Smookie Pot with a mix of Promarkers and Copic  Atyou Spica pens.The papers are a free download from Funky Hand.The tan and lime green card is Papermania Textured and teams with the papers well.Circles are cut with Nestabilities.The floral element has been created using my new Sizzix Elegance Decorative Strip and some flowers punched from a ribbon strip from the element sheet from the download.Tiny buttons have been added to the centres.The greeting,which I trimmed down, and ribbon are also from the same download sheet.I used a ribbon brad for the element on the sketch.It doesn’t show but I did use the clear Spica on the flowers on the paper circle and on the words on the sentiment.

Throwing a Wobbler!

Alright.Not quite.How could you over something so cute?

I saw these on QVC just before Christmas and managed to persuade my DH to buy them for a pressie.I was lucky he was feeling guilty because I asked him for a couple of items in the Create & Craft sale and he said,”Haven’t you got enough stuff already?” They really don’t understand do they?

Well a few days later he told me to order the things I liked as he was only joking.The trouble was they had sold out and I was upset.So I ended up with these little beauties :

Two stamp sets and a matching paper pad.

I did actually make this a while back and I’m a bit out of synch with my posts because I didn’t want use the computer too much over Christmas.I also set myself the task of joining in with more blog challenges this year and I needed to post and link them before the deadlines.

This quite a simple(s!) card.Sorry couldn’t resist the Compare the Meerkat reference.It was made for a past Sketch Challenge at Craftbubble set by GD Wynneth.The twist was ‘Stars and Stripes’.

How lucky this stamp showed up in time to play!

He’s been coloured with Promarkers then matted onto some Papermania Textured card that co-ordinates beautifully with the patterned paper.I only managed to use a small amount too and that has stars and some faint stripes as well.I love trying to eke supplies out where I can.The shapes are cut using Nestabilities Labels 3 that I found on sale.Embellished with some star and circle brads.
