Rose Bouquet

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well, I have a Mother's Day card to share with you today.

I used an image from DigiStamp Boutique 'Rose Bouquet Set' which I coloured with Promarkers, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the centres of the roses. The papers are Dovecraft 'Floral Muse' which I matted onto cream hammered card.
The sentiment is from another DSB set. Lace and Pearls from my stash.

I'd like to enter my card into the following Challenges:

Digi Choosday Wk 05 - Anything Goes
DigiStamp Boutique January Customer Competition
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Layer It Up

Thank you so much for visiting and for all of your lovely comments, it really makes my day !

1st Christmas Card of the Year !

Hi Everyone,

Didn't quite make it back before midnight but I was close ;)

I have my first Christmas card of 2018 to share that I made using the Simple Christmas Character set from DSB,

Sorry about the slightly wonky photo I was trying to find an angle that didn't make the snow I added to the trees look gold, I did use Diamond Stickles honest.
I merged 3 trees with this cute little him he is so cute !
Coloured with Promarkers and matted onto bright red card, the papers are snippets from my bits box and the little wooden snowflake was bought on Ebay.

I am entering this in Merry Monday Challenge #274 - Let it Snow
and Rudolf Days Challenge - January   (Thanks for the prompt Jenny x)

Have a fab rest of the weekend,

My Time to Craft # 363 - Transport

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe it's the weekend again already ! I have 2 posts today and for this first one I have my DT card for the new Challenge starting today at My Time to Craft

The theme this time is Transport so for my card I have used this cute golf buggy image from DSB 'Boys Toys Set'

I coloured the image with Promarkers and used some paper snippets, I used some little snippets of red card to make the little flags glued onto cocktail sticks and my rather bad attempt at a golf ball Lol is just a punched circle of hammered card with little promarker dots.
The sentiment comes in the set.

Pop over to the Challenge Blog to check out my Teamies lovely makes. We are looking forward to seeing all of your lovely creations...You have lots to choose from with this theme, if it get's you from A to B it fits :)

Back with my second post in a bit,

Hedgehog Cutie

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, it's been dull and rainy all day here so I have spent the day in my craft room...Yay !

I have been wanting to ink up this little hedgehog stamp for ages, it was a freebie from Quick Cards magazine a while ago. So when I saw that the new challenge at Less is More was One Layer and Cute I knew straight away what I was going to do.

I don't know why it looks wonky, I promise it isn't but it looks like I took the photo on a slant Lol

I stamped the hedgie with Memento Onyx Black and then coloured with Promarkers. I added some Wink of  Stella to the butterflies and flower centres.
To add a bit of interest to the front I scored some lines with my hougie board and then stamped my sentiment in Versafine Black. The sentiment stamp is one of  DigiStamp Boutique's new clear stamps, they stamp beautifully and I love the font...I think it will definitely become a favourite !

So I am entering this card into the Less is More Challenge #363

That's all for now,

MAWTT - New Challenge

Hi Everyone,

This was meant to be a scheduled post for this morning so thank you Jenny for letting me know it hadn't posted....I wrote the post out and forgot to click publish I'm such a donut !

So here a bit late in the day is my DT card for the new Challenge starting on MAWTT today....the theme this fortnight is CAS - Clean and Simple chosen by Amy.

I bought these little punched flower bouquets from an Ebay seller at least 5 yrs ago just after I started cardmaking and when I remembered them the other day this idea for a card popped into my head Lol
Looking at it now I'm not sure if it is CAS enough but I like how it turned out.

I stamped the Indigo Blu Script stamp in Pistachio Memento ink first and edged it in black, popped the little bouquet in the centre and stamped the sentiment from a magazine freebie set in Versafine Onyx to finish. This card was certainly Simple but Clean....not sure ;)

That's all for now, don't forget to head over to the challenge blog and check out my teamie's creation's and we look forward to seeing yours !

Flower Girl

Hi Everyone,

This year I'm trying to use my unused stash before buying any new (well we all at least try to do it don't we haha) and I realised I hadn't yet inked up some Elisabeth Bell stamps I bought back in the summer last year so my card today is using one of those. Unfortunately the packet has no stamp name on it so I have called her 'Flower Girl' if someone could give me the correct name that would be great ?

I coloured her with Promarkers and then cut her out with my new stitched circle die, the papers are from my snippets box and have been matted onto lilac card. I used a Tonic punch for the flowers.
Sentiment is a magazine freebie.

First Day at School

Hi Everyone,

This post should have posted yesterday but I was having such a problem with Blogger I gave up with a headache in the end lol ...hopefully it's going to play today !

A new challenge has started on the My Time to Craft Challenge Blog and the theme is Something New  .... I have made a card for First Day at School because that's a new adventure isn't it :)

I used a DigiStamp Boutique image 'Off to School - Rosie and Dan' coloured with Promarkers, papers are from The Works and the little apple resin was in my stash. Sentiment comes with the image as well as a little girl digi too.

That's all for now but I will be back later today with another card,

SomeBunny #2

Hi Everyone,

Finally here again a lot later than planned, my plan to blog every day this year is failing dismally so far !  Part of the reason for this is that hubby has January off work as being a self employed gardener he is too busy throughout the rest of the year to take any holiday so we have been catching up on jobs around the house that were long overdue.

My card today is using the 'sister' stamp to the bunny in my last post.

Papers used are Lawn Fawn 'Lets Polka' and the butterflies are cut using a magazine freebie die set. The sentiment is LOTV.

Somebunny to Love

Good Morning Everyone,

Is anyone else shocked at how fast the first week of January has gone ?! I'm hoping it slows down and the rest of the year doesn't fly by so quick Lol :)

I did manage some time in my craft room finally yesterday and I have made a card using one of my favourite stamps which was a magazine gift several years ago just after I first started card making.

Isn't he so cute ? I also made a card using his sister which I will show you in my next post.
I coloured him with Promarkers, the papers are from a lovely pack in my stash which unfortunately I have lost the cover sheet from so I have no idea of the brand but I have a feeling it is Trimcraft....if anyone recognises them maybe they could let me know.
The little sentiment stamp is another magazine freebie and I have used a Die'sire die to cut a flower to match the one he is holding. Pearls from stash to finish.

Baby Cards

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve and haven't been nursing any bad hangovers ! We had a very quiet one, hubby was in bed by 10.30 Lol he's like a bear with a sore head if he stays up late bless him.  So I watched the fireworks on Tv and brought in the New Year with a yummy cup of hot chocolate !

Anyway onto my cards for today, several years ago I bought these cute die cut toppers from Ebay but never got round to using them so when I found them again before Christmas I left them on my desk determined to get them on a card finally. I get asked quite often for baby cards so I have made one of each for my card box.

On the baby girl one I have used Pink Petticoat papers, some Joanna Sheen bunting and a lovely freebie sentiment from Netty's Cards.

With the boy one I have again used PP papers and the same bunting and added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

That's all for now, thanks for looking,

Hugs, Kaz xxx
