Here's another card. Well it was weekend so I could get a few cards done, hubby took the kids out to the park so I had a chance to play!This card is for the Sugar Bowl Challenge. I actually rotated the sketch (gosh, I'm normally by the book kinda girl! lol). The Sugar Nellie stamp is "Rory". I'm 'trying' with my shading colours! practice makes perfect eh?
Gosh, how many Christmas cards does one have to make? - think I better get my butt in gear - so here is another one to add to my collection. This is for the Just Magnolia Challenge click here for details.
This was another card I liked doing (haven't done this before) but decided to make a wreath. I ended up with a sore thumb punching out all those holly leaves but I think it was worth while. The leaves were mounted in silicon glue to give them a 3d effect. The card really does look a lot better in real life! - What is everyones secret to getting a really good picture that shows off every element???
The Simon Says Challenge is Get Well Soon - click here for details of the DT's examples. Their examples are so inspiring.
I kept this simple as I embossed the background card, I thought it would be too fussy to add anything else. Poor little bug - I couldn't make him go green so had to make him got a little pink! lol.
Cuttlebug embossing board - Victoriana
Stamp - High Hopes
Colours - Whispers Brush Markers
Nesties - Oval Scallop
This weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge is to create a Christmas card for a child.
I had thought of going all cutsy and fun, but then I found these stamps in my drawer which I thought would be a good way of teaching the Christmas Carol. Now how many of us forget the words once we get passed 6 Geese a laying? Yes I must admit I'm one of those also. Hence the folding book - neat eh? I really enjoyed inking these up and colouring them in, although it did take a little time to do this one.
I kept it quite basic in repeating the images basis but in "real life" it looks a lot better!!
The background was created using a gold Crayola Spider Pen (it leaves a sticky trail as you move it along - the skeletons were die cuts from a sizzix sizzlit, the spiders and webs were stickers from long ago and the headstones just cut randomly (as you would have guessed he he!)
Suppose I'll have to go and make tea for the brood.
Hello again, Cute Card Thursday Challenge asked for you to put charms on your card. I made this card using some old papers from my stash but with a Magnolia stamp that I have only just got. I tried watercolouring using Whispers brush markers - I'm trying to find a colouring technique I like the best lol!! The Ribbon again was from my stash and the little angle charm attached was a gift from a friend.
I tried to move away from the usual square card for this challenge - I wasn't happy with my first attempt so tried to be a little different in shaping the front - what do you think?
Hi there, hope your all enjoying the start of a new week!!!! I thought I'd try and link my Just Magnolia challenge - creating hand made flowers hopefully done correctly with a helping hand from Liz - thank you. Hope you like it.
I used my oval nesties (0bviously) - the top layer put through the Christmas bauble cuttlebug embossing folder - Martha Stewart doily punch boarder. The roses were created by a Quick cutz flower punch and curled round to form the roses. I don't have any glimmer mist so tried to use a mica pigment mixed spray - It didn't quite have the right effect but waste not want not!! lol
I really have got the passion for Magnolia Stamps and just love them all, I've only a few in my collection but hopefully will be buying more soon!!
The papers are from Papermania (an old stash) and the flowers and brads were from the Paper Cella - the sentiment was individual letters stamped onto a oval nestie cutout. The ribbon was from an old friend. Tilda was coloured using my Brushmarkers and stickles for her wings.
Hope your all enjoying your weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to try and get another challenge done. Sarah x
