Daring Card Makers Challenge - Photo Inspiration

It's time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge and the theme this week is a photo inspiration as its the first Friday of the month:


You need to use at least three elements from the picture in your creation and colour counts as one choice.  I've gone with the colour teal, the patterns (embossed background), coffee and circles.

The image is an old one from Funky Hand which is sadly no longer available and has been lurking in my stash of printed digis for quite a number of years and coloured with Promarkers.  I've used a Sizzix embossing folder and the ribbon hides the join.  Circles are Spellbinders and I've cut them from left over card


Half pearls and a faux running stitch to finish.  Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 31 - Bugaboo

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Bugaboo and I've used Stella Tidbits - Hard Drive which has been coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are all random printed bits I've had in my stash for years and all come from various Funky Hand cds which are no longer available.  And I found some Card Candi so added those!


Good luck with the challenge!

I Love Promarkers - Challenge 416 - Bugaboo

It's Wednesday so time for a new I ❤ Promarkers challenge!  The theme this fortnight is

Thank You

And we are sponsored by Bugaboo and I've used Mouse Big Flower and coloured with Promarkers.  I found an old digi paper in my stash that was from Funky Hand - Just For Jen download which is sadly no longer available.  I added the bakers twine so I could tie the hand written tag and used some of the many eyelets I seem to have in my stash!


Added some half pearls too and a fine faux running stitch around the edge of the image and card blank.  Good luck with the challenge!

See You Later Alligator!

One of my team was going off on secondment for a year so this seemed to be the perfect image to use (plus I'd printed it off some time ago and it was languishing in my stash waiting to be used). 

I had a rummage through all the papers I had and used this one - have a feeling its from a very early Funky Hand cd that sadly is no longer available.


I hand wrote the sentiment and added some card candy.  Buy Alistair the Alligator from Dr Digi!  Also available as an uncoloured digi.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Shake It!

It's time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge and the theme this week is

Shake It!

I've made a shaker card with some random tiny gems I had in my stash and some sequins - the plastic front is from an acetate cover that I've recycled and I've used some bottle dies and some freebie papers to create the focal point.


Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Black and White plus a Colour

It's time for a new Polkdoodles challenge and the theme is


Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to use black and white plus a pop of coloured paper.  So I've kept mine really clean and simple (nearly forgot to add the pop of colour!)  I've used the Flower Flourish die set layered on top of the Posydoodles tag die and that has, in turn, been layered onto a Posydoodles Circles die.  The sentiment (Sentimentals 6x6 paper pack) has been cut using the tag die set too and the bow has been made using scraps from the Vintage Candy 6x6 paper pad.  Some half pearls from my stash, and I'm done!


Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 30 - All Dressed Up

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I've used Shoes image along with the sentiment.  Coloured with Promarkers to match the papers I found in my stash which were magazine freebies from quite some time ago!  I've added some half pearls as embellishments to the front of the shoes and then added liquid pearl dots around the edge of the image and tag.


Good luck with the challenge!

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 212 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme is

Anything Goes

I've used a Little Miss Muffet Stamp and coloured her with Promarkers.  The backing paper is one I've had for an absolute age and its from Pink Petticoat.  I've embossed a panel and used that as a background and added little half pearls to the centres of the snowflakes.


I've hand written the sentiment tag and added other embellishments from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!

Decadent Wallpaper

Bath Time Bernie from Dr Digi is such a great image to use!  I've coloured him with Promarkers and teemed him up with Coffee Table (removed the daffs) added 70s TV and of course his Rubber Duckie!


Wallpaper made from Itsy Ditsy 6x6 paper pack from Polkadoodles.  Floorboards my own creation.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Three of Something

It's time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge and the theme this week is

Three of Something

I've gone for three balloons!  I've used a fab die, cut from offcuts of card (and added some die cut stars too!) and cut the sentiment with an alphabet die set and used the negative for a different look.



Just a faux running stitch around the edge of the card and a bit of highlighting on the balloons with a white gel pen.  Good luck with the challenge!
