Daring Card Makers - Oh Man!

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

Oh Man!

I made a card using a die last week and kept the letters from it to make this weeks card - rather pleased with myself for that!  The die is MFT and I've used Polkadoodles Sticks & Bones papers which I've added onto some DL sized ribbed cardstock and then added card candi to finish it off


Good luck with the challenge!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 7 - All Dressed Up

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

Anything Goes

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up stamps and I've used Gaming Boy which I've coloured with Promarkers.  All the papers are from my stash and I've used some random bits that I found as I am trying really hard to use up all that I have printed in the past!


I've lightly distressed the edges and added some X Cut star dies to finish it off.  Good luck with the challenge!

I Love Promarkers - Challenge 378 - Ikes Art

We have a new challenge starting over at I ❤ Promarkers and we are sponsored by Ikes Art.  The theme is

No Patterned Papers

I've used this rather cute Ikes Art - Coronet which is a freebie!  I've coloured it up with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue here and there.  I've mounted it on the card blank with foam pads to give it extra depth and for a little bit of interest, I've dotted a line of liquid pearls around the edge of the card.


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

7th Anniversary

I was asked to make a Wedding Anniversary card and as its their 7th year, it seemed very apt to use Flossy from Dr Digi.  Because 7 years signifies wool!  I've used Promarkers to colour and various dies from my stash for the fence, card base and grass.  The heart is an X cut die and I mounted that and the sign onto some offcuts of kraft card.


Sentiment is computer generated and added with cocktail sticks.  You'll have to excuse the charm not being straight - I clearly did not notice this when taking the photo!  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Card Makers - Alphabet Soup

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

Alphabet Soup

The main focus is to be numbers or words.  I've used a MFT die to cut out the patterned paper which is from Polkadoodles - Sticks and Bones collection.  I've added some chocolate brown card underneath and then doodled a line around the edge of the papers.  Really simple and quick to make!


Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Recycle

Welcome to a new Polkadoodle challenge, the theme is

Anything Goes

The DT were challenged to Recycle so I've recycled the reverse of an old Christmas card for the frame die cut.  I've used Ruby Sweet and coloured her with Promarkers and added papers from Fredericka Mini CD collection plus used the wonderful Bubbleicious Frame die.


I've used a small card blank and round the edges I've dotted a line of liquid pearls.  The sentiment is from the Bits and Pieces 6x6 Ephemera Pack, plus a little glitter glue dots here and there and my card is finished!

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 6 - Knitty Kitty Digis

It's Friday so time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge!  This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Knitty Kitty Digi's and we got to play with the Chicken Balloon Set.

I've used Promarkers to colour the image and I cut away the balloon string and added my own with embroidery thread plus little bows for added decoration.  The backing paper is from Polkadoodles - Winnie Celebrations 1 and I've added a computer generated sentiment to finish.


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

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 178 - Anything Goes

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

Anything Goes

I've made a card with a specific brief of it being Chelsea Football themed and the sentiment (created on my computer).  so I've used Junior Hatter Belle from Little Miss Muffet (sadly the store is temporarily closed) and coloured her with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue and liquid pearls.  The die cut background has been made with varying sizes and brands of snowflake dies which I've cut from the same cardstock as the cardblank and then added some half pearls to the centres of the snowflakes.


The ribbon and jingle bell are all from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!

Love A Cuppa!

I do like my cuppa in a morning - a bit of peace and quiet to myself before the rest of the house wakes up.  Well, actually, they usually wake up about 30 mins after I've left for work!

I've used Cuppa image and coloured it with Promarkers and I've used Tea & Bickies Backing papers - I've cut two circles, one large and folded in half to make the rocker base and then a smaller one to add the image to.


Ribbon and charms are from my stash.  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Card Makers - So Many Candles

It's time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme for the week is

So Many Candles

I've used Cake and Candles from Dr Digi and coloured it up with Promarkers and layered it onto the embossed panel with foam pads so its got more depth.


The embossed panel has been layered onto chocolate brown and red card - I actually used off cut strips to do the layering so its not a solid piece underneath!  Good luck with the challenge!
