Sporting Chance

I've made a star shaped card from a sheet of A4 kraft card and then used the reverse of a graze box for the grass, X cut stars from the offcuts from making the card base and then made a football from embossing a piece of card  with a Sizzix folder and colouring it

Daring Cardmakers Challenge - July Inspirational Elements

As it's the first Friday of the month and time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge, it is an elemental inspirational theme today.  And the inspiration can be drawn from:


You just need to use three of the elements in your creation.  I've used the texture, colour yellow, the round segmented pattern and the bead like pattern.

I've embossed the card blank with a Sizzix folder and added the yellow ribbon and wooden beads that I found in my stash (I was actually looking for something else at the time!)  The flower I've layered up from various ones I found lurking in the bottom of a box and added a button and ribbon to the centre to hide the hole (I must have recycled it!)


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Cute Card Thursday:  Anything Goes

Incy Wincy Designs:  Flowers

And I've used Mermaid Monster, coloured with watercolour pencils and I've used Echo Park splash papers plus waxed coloured cord and buttons from my stash.

The 'sand' is an embossed cardstock 12x12 stack from The Works (£3 for 24 sheets) and the aqua and patterned paper were in a starter pack when I bought my Sizzix machine.


Sizzix die cut tag that I've handwritten plus a bit of freehand doodling with a black fine liner pen and the clouds are Memory Box dies.  Good luck with the challenge!

Another Father's Day Pint

Here I am again with another Father's Day card using Pint Glass from Dr Digi along with a sentiment from the Father's Day sheet which I've printed onto kraft card.  The image I've shaded with a black fine liner pen - its so nice to be able to do this rather than use colour!


The papers I found in my stash when I had a tidy up a while ago.  Not got a clue where they are from but they fitted the theme perfectly!  Black elastic has been recycled from something else - not got a clue from where - just found it!

We are half way through the current Little Miss Muffet challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

For inspiration, I've used Polka Dot Pals Morgan and coloured her up with Promarkers and to represent one of my local U7s girls teams (who are actually very good!)


The papers are from a now retired Polkadoodles download and they were offcuts from a previous project and I had to be clever as to how to get them to fit on the card base - so there are gaps underneath that you can't see!

Sentiment is a magazine freebie stamp and black card is from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!

This is the Father's Day card I made my Dad - using The Great Outdoors image from Dr Digi which I've coloured with Promarkers and coloured pencils.  Papers are from a rather paper pad that I bought years ago in the sale from Papermania - Secret Garden 6x6 papers and because they weren't big enough for the card blank, I've had to arrange them in a random pattern after I'd cut them into 4.


Sentiment is also from Dr Digi - Father's Day Sentiments and I printed it onto kraft card.  Base of chocolate brown card is from my stash along with the two charms and the waxed brown cord.

And I've used Fairy Magic as well, coloured with Promarkers and a little bit of glitter on her wings and the butterflies.  The papers I found in my stash and were all offcuts so I've had to be creative in how I added them to the card base!  Ribbon and embroidery thread are from my stash.

This is The Great Baker and I've also coloured her with Promarkers and again I've used papers I found in my stash along with some raffia that I've had for quite some time.  Sentiment is from the same set as above.

Retirement - Part 4

Here is the fourth page in the retirement card / book I made for a colleague.  This one uses Dunderton Decorators from Dr Digi plus Paint Can.  Papers are from Papermania 6x6 stack with images coloured with Promarkers.


I printed the sentiment on the computer and then layered it onto some black card.  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Card Makers - Farewell

Hello, it's Friday again so time for another Daring Card Makers challenge!  The theme this week is

Retirement or Farewell Cards

I've made a Good Luck card for a colleague who I've worked with for around 16 years and this is for the office to sign.  I've used an image by Faith at From The Heart Stamps which sadly is no longer available as the store is now closed.  The sentiment came with the stamp too.

I've used Promarkers to colour plus added gems to the centres of the shamrocks and one I've rather gone over the top with the glitter on the one in the middle!


Ribbon and charm are from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:
