Best Friends

Good Morning,

Well that blooming white stuff is back ! It snowed all day yesterday, doesn't look as if we have had any more in the night though so hopefully it won't hang around too long.

My card today is one I made for a customer recently using  'Party Time Zoe & Flo' from DSB, unfortunately I think it has been retired as I can't find it on the website.

I coloured them with Promarkers and used a Gelly roll Sparkle pen to colour the fizz and bubbles. I also doodled around the edge of the panel and around the sentiments with the sparkle pen. It's really sparkly IRL but I couldn't get it to show up in the pic very well. The pink heart paper is Lawn Fawn and the spotty strip I found in my bit box.
I used a Tonic punch to punch some flowers to match the one in her hair. Sentiments - computer generated.

Single Rose

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well, the weather has been better this week and we have had a fair bit of sunshine. Snow is forecast for the weekend though so we might not have seen the last of it yet.

My card today is using the single rose from a Penny Black stamp set called 'Petal Party'

I stamped it in Memento black ink and coloured with Promarkers and added detail with a white gel pen. It was then cut out with the stitched rectangle from MFT Blueprints 13 and then matted onto cream hammered cardstock. The papers were from a Kaisercraft booklet free in a magazine and the striped ribbon was recycled from a M&S flower gift.
Sentiment is one of the new clear stamps at DigiStamp Boutique. Pearls from EBay.

I am entering this card into the following Challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge #199 - Bingo + Sentiment (Patterned Paper, Stamp, Favourite colour)

Creative Inspirations March Challenge - Any Occasion
I love Promarkers #364 - For a Girl

That's all for now, thank you for looking today

Easter Chick - MAWTT Challenge Easter

Good Morning Everyone,

A new Challenge is starting over at Moving Along With The Times today and the theme this time is Easter ! Here is my DT card

I used another cute DigiStamp Boutique image 'Quacky Easter' to make my Granddaughter's Easter card. Coloured with Promarkers and used a white gel pen to add polka dots to the eggs ribbon to match the real ribbon. I matted the panel with pale blue cardstock and then used an Edgeables die that was a magazine free gift a while ago to cut a fancy top in white. I love the effect but goodness it was a nightmare to cut ! Even using wax paper and a 3 in 1 tool to prise it out it still took 4 attempts before I got one that didn't tear getting it out :(  Got there in the end though Lol.

The papers were from my snippets box and I added some little butterflies, ribbon and pearls to finish off.

Pop over to the MAWTT blog and check out my talented teamie's gorgeous creations and we look forward to seeing your entries too.

That's all for now,

Garden Veggies

Good Morning Everyone,

I have started working on some Father's Day cards, quite early I know but these important dates tend to creep up and as I have been sharing mainly girly cards lately I thought it was time for a masculine one !

I used 'In the Garden - Veggies' from DSB and printed it out twice so that I could decoupage the image. I also printed some of the seed packets out bigger to use as embellishments. Everything was coloured with Promarkers and the layers popped up with glue gel and I finished with twine and a little trowel charm.
I have made this as a male card but it could just as easily be for a female by changing the papers and maybe the colour of the wellies hmmm polka dot wellies time !

I am entering this card into the challenge at As You Like It where the theme is Single/Multiple Layers & why....recently I have been enjoying the challenge of making more CAS and one layer cards but I love pretty papers too so keep gravitating back to layers ;)

That's all for now,

Mother's Day Rosie

Hi Everyone,

Hope you have all been having a wonderful weekend and enjoying a fabulous Mother's Day all of you lovely Mums out there !
I was thoroughly spoilt with flowers and choccies from my girls :)
Sadly my own Mum is no longer here so today is tinged with sadness at no longer being able to spoil her...I miss not making her a card as she used to love receiving them in fact she is the reason I started this blog.

I shared my MIL's card with you quite a while ago now so I thought I would show you the card I made for my grand-daughter to give her Mum.

I used another image from DigiStamp Boutique from Rosie Collection 1 as soon as I saw her she reminded me of our Freya !
I coloured her with my Promarkers and cut her out with my Ebay Stitched Circle Dies, the sentiment was created on the computer using Crushed font. The pretty paper was a pullout from a magazine and I love it so much I kept the rest of the card as simple as possible so as not to cover it up just added some bright blue ribbon and a few butterflies.

I'm entering this card into the following Challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - Y is Your Choice
Aud Sentiments Challenge - ATG
CCC Digi Creations Challenge #90 - For the Girls
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge March -  ATG
I love Promarkers Challenge #354 - For a girl
Passion for Promarkers #434 - Only Girls Allowed
Cute Card Thursday #520 - Mothers

My Time to Craft #366 - Easter or Spring

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm here with my DT card for the new Challenge that has started over at My Time to Craft, the theme this fortnight is Easter or Spring.

For my card I used a cute bunny from a DigiStamp Boutique set 'Easter Bunny Set' you get 3 images in this set for 60p !! Bargain :)

I coloured him with Promarkers and went over the Easter bunting with Wink of Stella. The papers I used were snippets from a 12 x 12 pad from The Works years ago, I think I've nearly used them all up now. The flowers were punched with a Tonic punch and are from the reverse side of the same papers.
A few pearls to finish and that's it. This card is for my daughter so I kept it fairly simple as she doesn't like frilly ;)

Pop over to the Challenge Blog to check out the fab creations from my talented teamies and we look forward to seeing your entries there too.

Have a wonderful Saturday whatever your plans,
That's all for now,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Xmas Poinsettia

Hi Everyone,

I have a card to share today that I made using the sketch at the latest Christmas Card Throwdown challenge


This is my take on the sketch

I used a Penny Black set that was a magazine freebie years ago, I stamped the Poinsettia 3 times and coloured with Promarkers then fussy cut them out which took absolutely ages lol. I used some satin gold card as a mat then cut the circle slightly off the edge of some white card and layered that onto the stripey paper which is from a pad from The Works.
I then popped the flowers up with glue gel and used some gold liquid pearls for the centres.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I really love the font.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:

Christmas Card Throwdown 03 - Sketch
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge March
Creative Inspirations March Challenge - Any Occasion
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes
The Merry Christmas Challenge #10 - Anything Christmas

That's all for now,
