Daring Card Makers Challenge - Elemental Inspiration June

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



You need to make sure you use three different elements and colour counts as one.  I've gone for the following elements:  Summer theme, water, cocktail, gingham pattern, yellow and words.

I've used a now retired From The Heart stamp and coloured it with Promarkers and coloured pencils.  Paper from my stash along with the paper ribbon, charm and half pearls.  Die cut sentiments are from Clearly Besotted.


Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 22 - Oddball Stamps

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Oddball Stamps and I've used Silly Chili Pepper, coloured with Promarkers and I added the sentiment with my computer.  The stars are various X Cut dies and are all off-cuts of card from my stash.


Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodles Challenge

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


Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to make something with 4 equal squares so I've gone back into my stash and used a Winnie Die and various papers to create the 4 squares - the big dotted one is Vintage Candy 6x6 - I do save all my little scraps which were perfect for the die cut elements!  The vellum is from my stash and it wasn't long enough so the gap is hidden under the die cut!


I've added some half pearls from my stash and the card is complete!  Good luck with the challenge!

Mum 70 - Part 4

Here is the next page for my Mum's Birthday card and I've used Green Fingers and Thumb from Dr Digi, coloured with Promarkers and glossy accents on the specs.



I cut the number 70 from card and then covered with some really ancient papers from my stash - Papermania - Retro Floral 12x12 papers which I've pieced together so I can use as much as I can.  Edges dotted with liquid pearls.  The smaller letter V is also covered with papers from the same collection.  I've handwritten the vellum tag and created a bow with some paper ribbon.

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Big Celebrations

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

Big Celebrations

I've used some skinny letter die cuts and first cut the words from the midnight blue pearl card and then cut them again from off-cuts of silver glitter card (bought from the poundshop!) and then they fitted perfectly inside as I didn't want a raised feel to it.


Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 21 - Polkadoodles

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Polkadoodles and I've used the lovely Holly Cake digi, coloured with Promarkers.  I've gone for a shabby chic feel and used oddments of printed papers that I've had in my stash for ages.  The banner has been cut from kraft card and then layered vellum over the top.  I handwrote the sentiment and the rhinestone numbers are from The Works.


Good luck with the challenge!

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

Circles

And we are sponsored by the Paper Nest Dolls and I've used Elephant With Butterfly and coloured with Promarkers.  I've printed the sentiment on my computer and used another circle die to cut it out and also the sparkly foam number 5 (set of lots of stickers from the poundshop!)


The paper is Dovecraft - Back to Basics 3 and the ribbon, half pearls, bakers twine and charm are all from my stash (the charm is actually from a charm bracelet, again from the poundshop!)

Good luck with the challenge!

Daring Card Makers Challenge - Birds

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

Birds

I've used an image no longer available - From The Heart Stamps, coloured up with Promarkers plus I found some really old Funky Hand papers in my stash that were oddments from previous projects that I've used for the background - had to add the circles to hide all the joins and gaps!


Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 20 - Conie Fong

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

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Conie Fong and I've used Bunny Hearts Girl, coloured with Promarkers.  After colouring the balloons, I covered them with glossy accents and sprinkled lots of fine glitter over the top.  I've also dotted liquid pearls around the edge of the image and the card blank.  I printed the sentiment myself.


Heart die cuts are left over from another project (I don't like to throw anything away!) and the bakers twine and heart and stone charm are from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!
